Spirit Guides: Do You Have One?

Jun 13, 2008
Spirit guides are disembodied entities who move between the spirit and the material world in order to provide guidance or counselling to a living person, usually someone who possesses the ability to communicate in some way with the spirit world already. However, some believe that each of us has a spirit guide and only those who have this ability to communicate with spirits can recognise their presence.

Generally, spirit guides are special in other ways. Most believe these guides are the souls of people who have been reincarnated sufficiently to be released from the cycle. Because of their experiences and knowledge gained from these reincarnations, they are able to share with the living a greater wisdom.

How Do You Know if You Have a Spirit Guide?

Obviously, if you have ever been able to communicate with a spirit who claims to be your guide then this is powerful evidence that you have one. Communication can come in a number of forms. Some people claim to have seen their spirit guides manifested in the flesh.

Other methods of communication include astral projection. In this method, you actually leave your body and are able to travel in a different plain of reality. While in this state, you can make contact with your spirit guide. Visualisation and meditation can sometimes also open the doors of communication between the two worlds.

In many cases, you may never have a direct encounter with your spirit guide. However, that doesn't mean you do not have a guide. Many people simply sense the presence of these guides in their lives.

How Will Spirit Guides Counsel Me?

If you are able to communicate at will with your spirit guide through meditation or astral projection, for example, then you can seek them out when you have questions.

Another common way of communication is through dreams. Have you ever faced a difficult situation or a dilemma only to wake up the next day feeling confident that you have found a solution? If you have then that may have been your spirit guide communicating with you through your dreams.

Sometimes you will simply sense the urging from your spirit guide to take one action over another. For example, if you are trying to make an important decision, you may feel yourself leaning towards one side or another automatically without giving it any thought. That initial reaction could be traced back to guidance from your spiritual companion.

Are Spirit Guides Always Human?

Native Americans for centuries have believed in animal spirit guides. In fact, this belief is an intricate part of shamanistic teachings. For them, the animal spirits guides are sources of wisdom. For example, the crow is viewed as an intermediary between the world of the living and of the dead because they believe it carries the souls to the other world. They possess wisdom about ancestors and about living without fear of the unknown.

While these beliefs are very strong among many people today, most individuals who have described their spirit guides see them in human form.
