Everything You Need To Know About Your Spirit Guides
“Who Are My Spirit Guides?”
This is one of the most common questions I am asked during a psychic reading. While the answer will certainly vary depending on the person, there are a few things that will remain the same.
It might be helpful to answer some of the other common questions I get regarding Spirit Guides as well, and hopefully clear up a few misconceptions in the process.
“What’s A Spirit Guide?”
Any spiritual entity who guides, protects, and helps you in any way, at any during your life.
These can be:
- your ancestors (which number in the millions)
- your angels (which may also number in the millions – I have no way to verify it either way)
- totem/nature spirits (spirits of a lake or storm and such)
- deities and demigods (whether or not you believe in them)
- kindred spirits from previous incarnations (whom you may not be related to now, but were associated with in the past)
- and pretty much any number of other disembodied entities or energies, who care about you in some way
“How Many Spirit Guides Do I Have?”
You have tons of them! Hundreds, thousands, millions – it’s impossible to know for sure!
“What Are My Spirit Guides’ Names?”
Names are pretty much only important to those of us living in the material plane.
A spirit reincarnates many times – each time, getting a new name. The name an ancestor went by last time around is but a drop of water in a much larger body of water, and is really not that important in the grand scheme of things.
The same goes for higher-level spirits like totems and deities.
Hindu deities are a good example: one god can have dozens of names depending on the avatar, the region, the language, the time in history, et cetera, et cetera, and so forth.
“If Guides Don’t Have Names, Why Did Psychic Sally Tell Me What They Were?”
Psychic Sally receives information from Spirit a little differently than I do (or she just made some names up to help you feel better about the whole thing).
When I talk to your Guides, I talk to the whole group. Occasionally, a spirit or two will jump forward to speak for the assembled – usually a close or powerful ancestor – but that should not imply that these are the primary, or only Guides.
“Can I Use The Names Psychic Sally Game Me?”
Absolutely! In fact, I recommend you do!
Even if Spirit is beyond the need for names, we humans find them incredibly useful! For us, giving something a name solidifies its existence in our psyche – so go forward boldly!
“You Really Can’t Give Me the Name Of a Spirit Guide I Can Talk To?”
Sure I can. But I’d be doing you a huge disservice in the process.
Human’s don’t just resonate with names, they also place importance on quantity.
If you think about your Spirit Guides as though there’s only a handful of guys (or gals), you’re going to subconsciously associate your Guides’ abilities based on those human attributes.
However, if you think about your Guides like they really are – an infinite army of unstoppable awesomeness – you’re going to see and feel their effects that much more! And as I illustrated in last week’s article, your thoughts and perceptions have a very real effect on the material world!
“How Do I Connect to My Spirit Guides?”
You’re already connected to them. You’ve probably just been too busy trying to pay the bills and get the kids off to school to notice.
Your Guides follow you around all day and night, like a spooky fan club. If you want to get their advice on something, simply address the assembled and ask your questions.
“What Can My Spirit Guides Do?”
Pretty much anything. The trick is to ask for their help.
The act of asking is like opening a door between the spiritual and physical world, allowing your Guides to reach into the material plane and make a very real difference in your life.
“Do My Spirit Guides Ever Get Angry or Frustrated With Me?”
No. Your Spirit Guides are beyond lower human emotions. They have nothing but unconditional love for you.
Even if you completely turn your back on them and shut their collective voices out of your life, they will continue to work for you in any way they can.
Your Spirit Guides Have One Job – Helping YOU
Your Spirit Guides have one job – helping you! And they’re pretty much obsessed with accomplishment!
They are your spiritual support system – your very own personal Pep Squad; always there to cheer you on and give you a leg up when you need it most!
Once you recognize the existence of this constant outpouring of love and light, you may never feel lonely again!
