Spirit Guides are nonjudgmental, highly evolved Souls who are assigned to us before we are born to help nudge and guide us through life. Many Spirit Guides are with us to patiently and lovingly guide us in this life in a way that is fulfilling and abundant. While we are always loved, protected and helped by our guides, we are the powerful creators of our own life.
Our relationship and connection with our Spirit Guides is sacred and a great honor for both of us.
Spirit Guides never judge us, give up on us, or get exasperated with us; they only deeply love us. They've had many lifetimes so they know what it is to be human.
We have “free will” so our guides don't force us to do anything, we make 100% of our own choices, but they do always try to help and guide us to create a satisfying life.
We do NOT get a whole new guide team (meaning our Master Guide and second in command) every lifetime as believed by many. Why would we? Almost 8 billion humans on the planet and a new team has to be formed with every birth? That is illogical, and would be completely inefficient and unnecessary. Your Master Guide has chose to express their Soul as your Master Guide for a long time, just as you choose to be "you" as a human in this incarnation.
Our Spirit Guides are not our departed loved ones or ancestors. Our departed loved ones can help us and give us messages also.
Spirit Guides are also different from the “Angels” around us. Angels have never incarnated as humans in lifetimes, they have no need to. Many believe they can take human form when needed - for example, to comfort someone if they are seriously injured and alone.
Angels are the closest vibrationally and spiritually to "the Divine," Higher Power or God – whatever your conception of the Divine is. We can be helped by Angels in many ways; they protect, help and deeply love us. Angels have an incredibly huge and loving energy. We each have an Angel team that works with us (like Guardian Angels), but Psychics connect with your Spirit Guides for your intuitive information. That’s what they are there for.
WHO ARE THESE SPIRIT GUIDES?
We all have one Master Spirit Guide who is with us throughout this whole lifetime and has been with us for many lifetimes. They also help us between lives. They only work with you.
Your Master Spirit Guide is not reincarnating anymore because they don't have a need to; they have chosen to become a Master Spirit Guide as how they want to express their Soul and existence.
Our other guides join our personal Spirit Guide team throughout our childhood, adolescence and adulthood. We usually have from 4 to 6 guides as adults, and also an Akashic Record guide. They start coming onto our 'team' when we are young children, new guides coming in separately over time as we grow up and start using more of our ability of 'free will,' or need extra help.
We all have a "second in command", a junior Master Guide who works closely with our Master Guide and who works only with you as your Junior Master Guide, and they have in other lifetimes also.
Spirit Guides have had many, many physical incarnations to understand what we go through. Some Spirit Guides will stay with you for a very long time. Other Spirit Guides will come in to help you with a specific area of your life, traumatic situation, or help with whatever you are going through and leave when their task is accomplished. A new guide can then come in if needed.
Some of your other Spirit Guides may be only guiding you at that time or they may be on the “panel” for other people as well. When it’s time for your Spirit Guides to help you they tune in to your energy to lovingly help you through life.
We have a childhood Spirit Guide and an Akashic Record Guide. We can have a guide for being a parent, a guide dealing with our work life, our love life, a guide to assist with our learning our healing or intuitive abilities, etc. Their assistance can be practical or spiritual in nature.
Our guides are at varying levels of higher consciousness themselves. They will all be highly evolved Souls and some may be a guide "in training" to become a Master Spirit Guide.
Our Guides normally appear to have a distinct male or female energy; they choose the gender and their physical appearance they feel you will connect with them best in this lifetime. Every Spirit Guide is a Soul (like you) with their own distinct personality and attributes.
For example, my Master Spirit Guide who has been seen/felt by many people is a very laid back Polynesian male guide named ‘Playa’, who has a good laugh, and is very tan, tall and bigger in build. We usually “see” or sense them as whomever their last incarnation on Earth was, or how they think we will understand and connect with them best.
DO SPIRIT GUIDES HELP US IF WE DON'T BELIEVE THAT THEY EXIST OR FEEL THEM AROUND US?
Some believe that our Spirit Guides don't help us if we don't believe they exist or ask them for help, or know how to connect with them consciously, etc., which is not correct and would negate the point to having Spirit Guides to help us from Divine Source in the first place. This applies to Angels also.
Spirit Guides don't have human ego's, rejecting anyone who doesn't pay attention to them. To believe that guides only help the people who know they exist and can consciously connect with them is like saying only "the chosen few" get assistance from their guides and that's not the way it works. I don't know where anyone came up with that idea originally but have heard it many times. There is no "Universal Law" that states this, nor does it violate our gift of free will.
Your guides are helping you specifically because you chose them as a Soul in 'the Divine' before incarnating in conjunction with higher-level guides. Your Master Guide would have chose you, and you choose them, (both with assistance from higher up) as a young Soul or even from when you were created as a new Soul.
Every person has a team of Spirit Guides (and a personal Angel team) to help them throughout every lifetime and between lives, whether they believe in them or not. You’re not “offending” your guides or anything like that.
No one can "fire" a guide they mistakenly believe is not helping them enough; our guides are highly competent and vibrate much higher then we do. The belief to replace guides when we want to comes from a place of ego, and it's not possible to do so, or necessary. If someone thinks they need new guides, they are the ones not making positive choices or being 100% accountable for their own actions.
As you begin your journey to uncover your own unique psychic abilities, you may not at first be aware of who your Spirit Guides are and how they can help you. That’s okay. You can begin by talking to them, feeling their presence, asking them for help and guidance.
Know that your guides are very loving Souls that are excited to be able to assist you. The more you work with them, the stronger your connection and ability to understand them will become. They are always tuning in to you to help you whether you're aware of them or not.
WHY WOULD I WANT TO CONNECT WITH MY SPIRIT GUIDES?
Connecting with our Spirit Guides is highly beneficial to us because they are where most of our intuitive information comes from besides our 'higher self.' Our lives become richer, more serene, and we feel a sense of flow in our efforts and life.
They will never be misleading, deceptive or judgmental. Their only goal is to love and help guide you through your life to help you to be aligned with the true nature and energetic qualities (personality) of your Soul; to help you with the things you want to do in this lifetime.
Start your journey now to deeply connect with your Spirit Guides so you can find the intuitive brilliance, joy and peace so many people have found with their Spirit Guides.
HOW DO GUIDES HELP US?
Spirit Guides can see what’s going on in our lives, and when it’s time for them to actually guide and/or intervene they have several ways they can accomplish this.
HOW DO YOU CONNECT WITH YOUR GUIDES DIRECTLY?
Wouldn't it be great if your guides could just tap you on the shoulder and just tell you what’s really going on? If they could tell you what to watch out for or what to avoid? For some people that’s almost how it works when they are attuned to and feel a connection with their guides. It just takes time and practice to be able to sense, hear, see or talk to your guides.
Please understand that our guide's role is not to give us every piece of information we ask for (even as a psychic!), or do our work for us, because that would negate our 'free will' by making us "puppets on a string" by directing our lives. Every human consciously create our own life by the choices we make using our gift of free will.
Here are some ways you can work on increasing your direct connection with your guides:
Meditate daily (or as often as you can). Do a meditation where you imagine yourself going to a room or a garden and ask your guide(s) to appear before you, sit with you, and chat. Just see what they say. Or visualize whatever feels right to you. There are many online resources, guided meditations on YouTube, and local classes on meditation (some free).
Walking or sitting in Nature is meditative for some people. In time your connection will become stronger, and the information you get will be more accurate and applicable to your life.
Listen to your intuition. That little voice or gut feeling that tells you to “slow down” or “buy milk” or “take notice of the man in front of you” is a direct communication from your guides. Or it may be a picture or symbol that has meaning, a dream, "knowing" like a computer download of info (very simple to significant), etc.
Try listening to your intuition and see what results you get. If something doesn't feel right, it probably isn’t. At the very least, use your gut feelings to protect and keep yourself safe.
Do not mistake your ego for your intuition. If you're hearing thoughts like, “Don't even try for that job promotion, you'll never get it," then that’s your ego. Let it go. The first instinct/feeling you get is your intuition (a message from your guides). If you start talking yourself into or out of something after that first instinct - that is your ego so recognize it and dismiss it. Trust your first gut feeling or intuitive insight when it hits.
Feeling your guides' presence. If you feel someone very loving and supportive is near you (and it doesn't feel like a departed loved one), it may be your Master Spirit Guide or another guide. My experience, and talking to many other people is that you usually connect with your Master Spirit Guide first. Ask a question and "feel" if you get an answer. Don't worry if it's a voice, picture in your head, feeling, "knowing," etc.
Be open and see how you communicate with them naturally without expectations. Ask for validations that you will notice for confirmation. This can be seeing a bird you like, feathers, a song, sequence of numbers, just anything that will stand out to you. You don't have to ask for any 'sign' in particular, just a sign you will recognize and preferable to not have exact expectations.
It normally takes a little time and practice to really get used to their presence, then to consistently get messages and guidance directly from your guides like you're speaking with a friend. Please be patient, positive and open. It's worth it!
You should know that if you have a question for you Spirit Guides - ask it! You will always receive an answer. It may not happen the instant you ask the question, but more often than not, I get an answer within 24 hours. You just need to be open to receiving your answer.
After you start noticing a sign you may get physical symptoms to go with it. For example, when I receive a sign I can usually feel a pulsing/pressure sensation between my eyebrows (third eye chakra). It lets me know there's something I need to see, or confirms that what I'm seeing is not a coincidence if I'm questioning it.
I often ask my Guides when I can't find something - and then pay attention to what my 'gut' says after... they always guide me to where the object is. I always thank them when I find it.
Journal. A method I recommend to a lot of people is to write in a journal, or a Word document, better yet write on a piece of paper some questions you'd like to ask your guides. Be quiet and meditative and write the answers you hear or feel are right. Keep going as if you're having a conversation with them.
It may seem like you're just writing answers from your imagination, but keep going and let go of worry. When you get to a point where the answers you're getting sound like a more prominent voice in your head and different than the usual mind chatter, take notice of what they say. A benefit of this approach is being able to refer back to it later.
Dream. One of the best ways to meet and connect with your guides is to meet them halfway. Open your dream up to them. You can put out the intention every night to see and connect with your guides in your dreams, you can say this out loud to them. It may take a while, but it will may eventually work.
Our guides regularly work with us while we are sleeping in dreams. We don't often remember it but they help us to sort out things, comfort us and give us guidance and answers.
You can write down a question for your guides before you go to sleep, keeping the notepad and pen by your bed. Think of them before you go to sleep to see if you dream about them or get answers. Write down whatever you're thinking about when you first wake-up (during the night or in morning).
Ask a reputable psychic or medium who sees Spirit Guides. Not all do; all psychics and mediums have different abilities. I can tell you who your Master Spirit Guide is (male or female energy, physical & personality description, only sometimes names), and about a few of the other guides you have around you in a psychic reading.
A Spirit Guide Reading with me can tell you in more detail of who the Spirit Guides are in your Inner Circle, how each guide is a also made as a Soul and how they can help you in their unique way, and what their individual purposes with you are.
YOU MAY NOT GET ALL YOUR DIFFERENT SPIRIT GUIDE'S "NAMES" RIGHT AWAY
Their "name" will resonate with you and the guide will confirm it. It may be their name from one of their past lives or a name that simply connects them to you in this life. It's NOT necessary to know their "name" first to connect with them to have a very positive and beneficial connection with your guides since they have had many different names in all their earthly incarnations.
As humans we have a need to label or have a specific name so we feel better able to identify with and give value to someone. Your guides know YOU as a Soul and everything about all your many earthly incarnations and everything you're experiencing in this life.
If you get a name once or a few times and it resonates with you as one of your Guides names, then ask the guide is that is their name. If you get a yes or positive response in any way then call them that. Keep it simple.
No psychic or medium is really going to get all of your Spirit Guides names in a reading. This is a just a gimmick to seem "all knowing" - it's dishonest and disrespectful to the client but some still do it.
Some psychics are very good with remembering names in regular life, and they can generally be better at getting guides or departed loved ones names, but they will not get every one.
Psychics who are aren't good with names in regular life don't often get names. This is a real phenomenon I have talked about with many psychics all over the world. There is no correlation with being a better psychic if you get names or if you don't.
Some guides names are more like an energetic signature, it would be like trying to give a name to a lightning bolt. Some guides, while not many, prefer the person they are guiding to get the name on their own. I have, and other psychics have actually had guides tell us that their name will be discovered by the client in their own, like a private interaction. Of course the client's Master Guide tells us this in a very loving and patient way.
HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU'RE NOT JUST IMAGINING YOUR GUIDES?
You will know by the advice and results you get. Does the guidance resonate with you? Do you feel like it’s coming from them and not you? Do you create what you want when you pay attention to signs and gut feelings, etc? Do you get great results when you listen to their guidance? If the answers to these questions are “yes” then you are on the right track!
