I am often asked about Spirit Guides, so I though I would answer a few of the more common questions:-
Q: Do I have Guides
A: Yes, everyone does. It doesn’t matter if you believe in Spirit or not, they are still with you.
Q: Who are they
A: A Spirit Guide is a Spirit Being who has agreed to walk with you through this life for the purpose of guiding you and assisting you in staying on path with what your Soul is here to do.
Q: Is my Loved One one of my Guides
A: I believe that Loved Ones are not Guides. Though, they may assist your Spirit Guides in assisting you, they act as your Loved One.
Q: How many do I have
A: Everyone has three permanent Guides who are with you from birth to death. They are your Main Guide, your Doorkeeper and your Guardian Angel. You then have Guides who come and go depending on your needs – for instance a Guide may step forward to assist you with a particular problem or situation in your life and once that is resolved or finished they step away again. Likewise, those of you who develop mediumship or healing skills will have Guides who work whilst training and when you are working professionally.
Q: What do they do
A: Your Main Guide oversees your entire life – they also supervise all the other Guides and Spirit Beings who step forward to help you or work with you. Your Doorkeeper is your bodyguard keeping who protects from unseen problems and energies. Your Guardian Angel doubles up with your Main Guide and Doorkeeper for those of you who are more comfortable connecting to an Angelic vibration rather than a Spirit one. They all work in tandem with each to support you.
Q: Can I ask them for help
A: Yes, but be mindful of what you are asking. Spirit Guides can not tell you what to do, they can point you in the right direction or give you inspiration. They often do this through thoughts, songs, signs, symbols, white feathers and so on.
Q: How do I talk to them
A: Simply address your words or thoughts to them and they will hear you. You can also ask them to answer through a pendulum, oracle or tarot cards or spiritual tools such as a book like “The Book of Answers” by Carol Bolt.
Q: What do they look like
A: Whatever you need them to, or something befitting the role they are taking for you. For instance a Doorkeeper might appear as a Warrior, a Healing Guide might appear as a Doctor and so on.
Q: Do they have names
A: Spirit do not need or use names as we but of course they will give you a name if you need one. Ask them to give you a name and then wait for the inspiration – trust what you get.
Should you want to build a better relationship with your Guides then there are plenty of courses and workshop run on this topic and lots of books dedicated to it. You can also use visualisation to meet them.
