What are spirit guides?
A spirit guide is your connection to the spiritual world. You might also hear this term as a guardian angel, or an earthbound spirit.
They can be seen as the watchers who take care of us and guide us on our journey through life. Spirit guides are experts at navigating their way in the physical and spiritual realms.
They are beings that exist on both sides of the door between death and life, which means they have a lot of knowledge about what is going on in both worlds.
Spirit guides may come to you in many different forms depending on what you need help with at that time in your life.
It could be a person you know or it could be an animal such as a Cat, Dog, Horse, Bird, Dragonfly, Butterfly, Raccoon, or Fox.
They may come to you through dreams or during meditation sessions you may even see them out and about when walking down the street!
There’s no limit to what your spirit guide can be or when they’ll show
Why do we need spirit guides?
We often feel overwhelmed by the challenges in our life.
Sometimes, we might not even be aware of them, but they are happening anyway.
We might have emotions that we have no control over or know where to put.
These things can be a sign that we need help from someone who has seen many more years than us.
Spirit guides are here to help us see and process our life’s mistakes and guide us on the right path.
It is important to remember that there are two types of spirit guides, personal spirit guides, and group spirit guides.
Personal spirit guides include angels, higher selves, deceased relatives, and other people close to you.
Group spirit guides include your ancestors, people in other realms, and human beings in general.
How do we connect with them?
Spirit guides are always watching us and waiting for us to call them.
It can be hard to call them, though, because of all the voices in our head telling us not to.
But it is important that we connect with them to help guide ourselves.
How do you know if you have a spirit guide? Well, they are always close by.
There will be a sense of relief when they come around you’ll feel happier and more alive.
Spirit guides try not to intervene unless we ask for help, so if you’re looking for some guidance or just want somebody to talk to.
Invite your spirit guide into your life by asking for their guidance.
Helpful Step 1
Ask yourself these questions each day or at least once per week. What am I feeling? Why am I feeling this way?
How does this compare with how I felt yesterday or last week?
In what way is my current mood different from my mood a few months ago? What do I need right now that I haven’t been getting?
Helpful Step 2
Every day, write down three things that happened that made you happy, three things that made you uncomfortable, and three things that caused you stress.
Write these down in a journal or on your phone’s notes app.
Doing this exercise daily will allow you to see patterns and make changes accordingly.
What are the benefits of connecting with them?
Spirit guides are a part of your soul that is here to help guide you to the right path in life.
They know everything about you and they want to help.
Connecting with them can be beneficial for a number of reasons, including:
● Helping you find peace
● Providing guidance to make life better
● Helps you work through challenges
● Gives clarity on how to feel when you’re not feeling anything at all
● Helps you get out of a rut
● Offers insights into what’s ahead for you and what challenges or opportunities may lay ahead
What if I’m not sure if it’s real or not?
If you’re not sure if it’s real or not, start by asking for help.
The first step is to see if there are any tangible things that can be done to make your life better.
If there are none, then you may have a spirit guide that is trying to talk with you. Ask the question: “Is this real?”
The answer will come in different forms, such as through a physical sensation, an image in your head, or a feeling of peace and calm.
What if I don’t know what to ask them?
Sometimes people worry that they don’t know what to ask their spirit guides.
Usually, they’re worried about not knowing what the question is.
Or maybe they have no idea how to ask them in a way where it will make sense.
You don’t need to know what question you want to ask your spirit guides for them to be able to help you.
They might show up and tell you that you should start meditating more, or change your diet, or go back to school.
It’s really up to them what they want you to do with the information they give you.
Connecting with your spirit guides is a powerful way to get the answers you need.
How do you know if you have spirit guides?
You could be feeling that you have someone who is guiding and looking out for your best interests.
You might hear words, phrases, and songs that come to you that are entirely new to you, but which seem to make perfect sense at the moment.
You can ask your spirit guides questions about anything that you need help with.
They may not speak to you audibly, but could answer you in a dream, in your thoughts and feelings, or through symbolic representations.
The next time you’re feeling confused about a decision, ask yourself if it’s possible that you have a connection with your spirit guides. If you do,
it may help to ask them for advice. If not, it may be time to explore other avenues of guidance.
