We’ve all heard the term guardian angel, or spirit guide. However do you know what they are, or the purpose they serve? In this article we will take a closer look at who they are and how to get to know them.
Who are Spirit Guides?
Most people have at least one spirit guide that is with them from the moment of birth. Other guides join together creating a team of guides as we age. By age 20 most people have around 4 spirit guides. While some may have gender energy some are neither male nor female, they are just energy. It is rare that they are deceased relatives, normally spirit guides have never taken corporeal form.
What do Spirit Guides do?
Spirit guides help us along our earthly journey. Their assistance can be practical or spiritual in nature. There are a number of ways our guides intervene on our behalf. The most common way people recognize their spirit guides hand in their lives is by receiving signs. For instance you may notice that multiple times you have noticed the same line from a song playing. Only that line stands out and you may have heard it in different locations, the office, your car, a store Chances are that’s a sign and you should pay attention to that lyric and what it means in your life. You may also experience “gut feelings,” or strong bursts of intuition. You should always follow your gut instinct.
How can you connect with your Spirit Guide?
The best way to directly connect with and learn about your guides is to enlist the help of a psychic. However you can also try meditating and dreaming. Opening your dreams up to your guides may be the best way to connect with them. This is a great technique for people who have mastered lucid dreaming. Once you start getting to know, and working with your guides keep in mind that they are not necessarily heavenly beings. You do not need to pray to them. Your spirit guides are more like mentors and friends helping to guide you and help you achieve your goals. So just ask them for aid and thank them once its received.
As with all things in the spirit realm your best course of action is to go with your gut and watch for signs.
