Spirit guides are spiritual beings that take a vested interest in us and our spiritual development. Spirit guides are basically assigned to us and they help us to move through different periods in our lives. Not only can you have more than one spirit guide, but most of us tend to have multiple spirit guides over the course of our lifetimes.
Some spirit guides may stay with us throughout an entire lifetime. Other spirit guides may come along to guide us through a particular period in our lives. For example, if you’re going through a particularly challenging period of intense healing, it’s not unusual for a spirit guide to come along to help you through that process. You may also attract different spirit guides who specialize in certain things. For example, if it’s time for you to learn about loving yourself in relationships, you might attract the attention and help of a spirit guide who specializes in helping people with relationship issues.
Some spirit guides are working with multiple people at once. Or you might be the only person a particular spirit guide is working with at a given time.
While some people report that their spirit guides are male or female, that designation is simply one that helps humans to understand the concept of what’s going on. In reality, spirit guides are simply made up of energy.
Spirit guides work with people in a vast variety of ways. Some are responsible for sudden flashes of inspiration or intuition — imagine your spirit guide whispering a piece of valued wisdom into your ear. From your standpoint, you simply thought up a great idea. But was it really your thought? Spirit guides may also work by arranging coincidences and synchronicities. When you notice synchronicity, it’s always a good idea to follow it. Synchronicity also serves to let you know that you are on the right path at a given time.
There are many ways to connect with a spirit guide. Sometimes they come to us in our dreams. Other times, we may simply have a strong feeling in which we sense their presence. You can also connect with your spirit guide with the help of a professional psychic. Often spirit guides will communicate with psychics on our behalf because our psychic senses are not open enough to sense the communication from our spirit guides on our own.
