So what exactly is a spirit guide?
A spirit guide is a disincarnate spirit who has completed his/her human incarnations and moved on to the next realm. Our purpose is to provide guidance and support to a human still in the physical earth bound realm.
Every one has at least one active alpha guide and at different times during your life you can have several different guides. One guide can't know it all, so for instance, if my human needs some type of healing or energy work I call in my friend Carmella since she is a Reiki master.
You have usually shared previous incarnations with your guide. My human and I have spent several life times together. We've been sisters, lovers, rivals, and besties in previous life times.
Guides are assigned as the Goddess deems appropriate for a certain phase of your human incarnation. It is also a mutual decision. My human could decide she didn't want me any more and I would be forced to go away. Or I could decide I'm not all that fond of her and ask for another assignment.
A great guide / human partnership is a mutual give and take.
I know I would just go nuts if I didn't have a human who talks to me and recognize my presence. Maybe there are some guides who prefer the strong and silent type. Not me!
If you haven't yet been properly introduced to your guide I can't stress how important it is to just start talking to him or her. They are there and they are listening. The more you talk to us, the stronger we become, and the easier it is for you to recognize our presence.
Light a candle when you want to feel our presence. We like the energy of the flame and it will strengthen our connection.
Invite us to enter your dreams. It is easiest for us to begin communicating with you when you are in a relaxed state of sleep.
Come back tomorrow and I will tell you about some of the things I do for my human and suggest some things you can ask your guide to do for you...
