SPIRIT GUIDES - Who and What Are They?

Updated on June 4, 2011

SPIRIT GUIDES - Who and What Are They?

Each and every one of us has a Spirit Guide.

A Spirit Guide is someone we were very close to and trusted with our soul while we were on the Other Side, prior to incarnating into another lifetime on Earth. Our Spirit Guides, who made a pact with us to be our constant, vigilant guides, companions and helpmates, are the best friends we have ever had.

Because your relationship with your Spirit Guide was formed between your soul and theirs on the Other Side prior to your birth, it is impossible for them to be someone you’ve known in this lifetime.

The spirits are all around us, everywhere and all the time. Though these companions cannot be physically seen, they can be felt or sensed. Sometimes it's that voice in your head warning you not to do something, or telling you to do something. It might be a dream or vision you have giving you a message about things you should do and things you should know. Spirit Guides send you ‘messages’ through your subconscious mind, your intuition and your dreams. What you have always accepted as instincts or your conscience or unusually vivid dreams are actually your Spirit Guides sending you messages.

In addition to mapping out our blueprints prior to incarnating here, we make sacred contracts with entities on ‘The Other Side’ to watch over us, protect, help and guide us, through this earthly journey that we have chosen to undertake. Our Spirit Guide is the most intimate of advisors and help us to conceive and review our 'blueprints' or 'charts' with us.

Spirit Guides and all other transcended spirits are either male or female and all Spirit Guides have spent at least one lifetime on Earth. Because of this, they are able to empathize with the foibles, mistakes, problems, fears, temptations and all the other frailties we encounter as humans in the physical world.

Our Spirit Guide’s job is to urge, encourage, nudge, support, advise and ‘guide’ us on our live paths and soul missions.

      I have been close to the Angels for years now. They communicate with me literally all day, every day - from the moment I wake up, to the moment I go to sleep - about pretty much anything useful, both big and small. Numbers, general signs in the physical world, and my own intuition are the main forms of communication they use - numbers being the most common. I believe that they - at least partially - are responsible for the transformation I have undergone in recent years. Without them, I I don't know where I'd be today.

      I was an IV heroin addict for 4 years. I was struggling. I started using at age 18. During that period of my life, my will to live just LEFT me. I had virtually no motivation to live life . . . unless I was on drugs. I wasn't even sure if true happiness existed anymore. I couldn't maintain a job, stay of trouble, motivate myself to work out, or any of that. I couldn't stay clean for long; I wasn't able to see WHY I SHOULD. Life without drugs didn't seem worth living. Life WITH drugs wasn't much better, but at least I could feel happy for short little times, here and there.

      I'm not sure when it all began, - it wasn't a sudden thing; it was subtle, gradual - but my life started changing. Eventually, I stumbled across the book, Conversations With God (I had just gotten out of rehab then; it was one of my sober periods). It introduced to me the idea that I am being communicated with (by the Universe, Spirits, etc.) at virtually all times . . if only I were to listen.

      And.. so.... I started listening.

      Sure enough . . . Synchronicities. Everywhere. Very often. Many of them were incredible, profound, mind-blowing. They became more and more frequent as time went on. I didn't realize it then, but things were starting to change. I was changing. Over the course of about 6 years, I underwent a complete transformation.

      Much has happened since, but, long story short: Life got easier. Somewhere along the way, I started WANTING to be responsible. I started WANTING to stay clean (part of me always did, but not all of me). As time went on, life not only became more barable, but it actually started to seem WORTH living. I started actually ENJOYING life. I WANTED to be alive.

      6 years have passed since I first started listening - and since I discovered angels - and now it's just a part of my every day life. Today, I am no longer hounded by addiction. I am motivated to live. I hold a full time job (only until I'm off parole... then I'm off to travel again!). My spirtual friends have even taught me QiGong, Yoga and Energy Work. I am now a dedicated practitioner. I make time for practice and meditation every day, no matter what I have going on. I work out often . . etc. . You get the point.

      Most importantly of all, today, I can honestly say I am happy. I am much more at peace overall. Like I said, I believe I have the Angels to thank - at least partially (I'm sure my Spirit Guides, the Universe, my OWN free will, etc., have also played pretty big roles) - for all of it. They have helped to turn my life around, completely, and in a great way.

      I am forever grateful for my friends in the Spirit Realm.

      I disagree with the commenter directly above me. Your demons are actually negative energy and your entire comment sounds close-minded and fear based. It's wonderful that you know all. Our experiences on this earth are all about individual perception. This is taught in basic psychology, which is scientifically proven.

      We're all entitled to our own perceptions. Our perceptions become our realities and our life experiences. You and I could be in the same room and witness something but have an entirely different experience and/or perception of the events.

      If you choose to base your reality and perception of life off of fear and black and white thinking (heaven and hell), that's your choice but you are greatly limiting your true spiritual nature and only attracting negative into your life. In the end, our life experiences all boil down to what we attract into our lives through our own thoughts, emotions and perceptions... ~ Law of Attraction ~

      When people die they go to Heaven or hell and that is where they resign for eternity. They do not become spirit guides. Demons are the ones that would be considered spirit guides....There are NO human spirits roaming the earth. Just demons. Sorry!!!!!
