A look at a Spirit Guide, from a Christian.

Updated on April 9, 2013

They call this child, little Buddha boy. That hat is Colombian from his sister, the drawing is from his brother.

I really think that siblings are awesome guides.

I reckon most Christian do not get the essence of a spirit guide

A Day without sin. Have you ever planned out a day where the only intention was to do no wrong. It is a strange concept. A guide is something or someone who helps you in such an endeavor. Spirit guides are as old as man.

I really do not care what your spiritual persuasion is. All have some notion of right and wrong and most some concept of sin. Some days I try to set aside time without anything but feel good stuff. The concept comes from both the Sabbath and a point of theory called Pratyahara - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Pratyahara (Devanāgarī प्रत्याहार, Tibetan སོ་སོར་སྡུད་པ་) or the 'withdrawal of the senses' is the fifth element among the Eight .. Way too deep. It is a concept of withdrawal of senses. So you turn off everything electronic or electric and zone out. Individual modifications are a must just like a Sunday that you work but go to mass on Monday.

The important thing is that the space you enter is closer to being free of clutter. So your mind and spirit can focus on the good, the beautiful and the worthy. If you take a day and just focus on the good. You will only do good on that day.

Just imagine saying to your heart: "how are you doing today?"

Our intangible mental health requires nourishment just like our breathing bodies do. If you neglect it, it will wither and die. Somehow get it in your head that it is not a waste of time to take care of the real you.

I was raised being taught the way of the Southwestern Apache and Hopi. It never has occured to me that that way is different from that other, "the way".

What comes into us, to enable us to draw so well? I cannot count the times I was 20 miles from nowhere and lost - and this guy was my guide home. Why then would my older son have this same vision?

We don't need saints and martyrs what we need to do is respect the children

For me the setting aside of time is occasioned by my little monkey son. What need have we for electronics. His world is complete in the mystery of a garden hose, or any kind of moving or still waters. He is amazed at bugs and any plant with flowers(or not). He points out colors that I had long forgotten and there is no difference between my rake and his.

The notion is that if we truly live in the moment we find space/places in our soul that we normally run roughshod over. We do not even pay attention to the bee, but instead shew it away or kill it. We don't just sit and commune with our animals or wild animals. We noise we hear are distractions rather than a sound creation.

Generally folks would tell you to get rid of the son, because he is a distraction. They have a good point if the son is a distraction. But for me, on those days he is the attraction. I have trouble letting go of the world. He does not yet know the world. He is my Spirit Guide and minister, down the road of renewal. As for Christ, how wonderful that he leads me so a little soul can guide and love me so much.

The world can wait. We are in such a rush these days that we miss out. By trying to get everything in we are missing some of everything. Wholeness needs our attention it is not obtained by running here and fro and a result oriented approach. Yes we need that these days but we also need to invest in our sanity.

I really want to make it more complicated and keep writing. However that would be the antithesis of what I am after. Breath peace into your own heart. Shut your eyes tight and open them anew. Be like a child and He will call you His own.

      So beautiful to read. Kids help us see the world through different and more appreciative eyes. May your little Angel (who will soon grow taller than you before you blink, lol) continue to bring happiness to you.

      Well, I had children when we were too busy trying to grow up and keep body and soul together to really understand the value of spending slow and easy time with our kids. I am happy to have the great privilege of having delightful grandchildren who give us that opportunity in our retirement years. They do a wonderful job of "keeping us in the Loop". One day I told my older granddaughter (she was 8) that if anyone hurt her I would kidnap her and take her away with me. She said, "Grandma, I know you are a Christian and that you would never do anything to hurt anyone". Well, that is some guidance to live by for sure. ~Cynthia

      Out of the mouths of babes........ No matter the timing in life we are blessed to have the children around to keep us sharp. I thought growing up included having children. Cynthia thank you for a delightful comment.
