This week I posed the question on my face Book Fan Page, what do you want me to talk about on this week’s spiritual comment? Well the answer was Spirit Guides and your relationships with them. Now I have talked before about my relationship with my spirit guides, but I feel it is an important topic and one we can certainly explore some more.
For those of you who are new to the term, Spirit Guides are Benevolent Beings who guide you in life from the other side. They can be ancestors or animals, they can be alien kind or they can be angel kind. They can be any kind of life form that exists in the spirit realm, but they must only reside in the light. If you think you have a spirit guide with you, but you feel that you are not guided so much as more being influenced, then you are suffering from an Influential spirit. The Influentials do not reside in the light. They reside in the dark and shadow and very often they are
Earth bound spirits. Now I am not going to go too deeply into Influentials today, as I want to stay on topic, but it is important to know the difference. Spirit Guides, guide you. Influential spirits influence you.
Now, the purpose of life, not matter what form it takes, is to learn and grow. Even a tree must learn to hold fast in the wind and learn to encourage some creatures to live in its leaves and to discourage others. Life must always learn adapt and grow. So too must your spirit guides. They are with you to help you to learn adapt and grow, but in doing so, they too are going through the same process, in their own unique lessons. Guides may learn how best to help you, finding out that you can’t help someone so well if their head is full of music and noise, but you can say if they are doing a mundane task like mopping a floor, because their head is more empty of thoughts. A guide who is new to the job, may choose to materialise at your bedside one night, thinking this will get your attention and then you can chat…only to find that you waken scared out of your mind and closed off to the conversation. The job description of being a Spirit Guide has many lessons and many rewards. Just like any other job you or I may encounter in Life.
It makes sense to me that those Benevolent Spirits who choose to become Guides would have a mentor, a more experienced Guide who will help them through the frustrations and the rewards of guiding we Humans. Just as there are frustrations in parenting, I know that there will be many frustrations in Guiding.
Many people want to know who their Guides are and this is a valid question. I personally don’t know the names of my guides, I just know that there a five permanent Guides who support me in this life time and they like me to call them The Old Ones. I have incorporated them into the two books I have written, the first of which will be published in the New Year.
Really you don’t have to know their names, though it can be important for some people in making that connection permanent. What you do need to know is that all your guides agreed to help you in life before you were born. You and The Great Spirit and your guides and Mother Earth all had a meeting as such and certain agreements were put into place. You would be born at a certain hour, when the stars aligned in a certain way, you would choose certain parents and therefore have a particular cultural experience and you would have a certain name that set you up for your personalities’ vibration and you would have certain Guides to help you through your Life lessons and help you to achieve your mission. Now some Guides will have signed up to be with you all your life, like my 5 Old Ones are for me, some, however, will only be with you to help you through a particular experience or lesson, such is their expertise. Some Guides will be with you for a moment in time only, others for a year and others for only a day. You will always have your guides with you, the permanent guides may step aside while the temporary guides do their thing, but you will never ever walk alone.
Having said that, if you choose to close off from your guides, you will run the risk of allowing Influentials to tap into your vibration and take over your sub conscious mind. This is very important to know, because you don’t want to be influenced. This is how you end up addicted to drugs or alcohol, or how you become irrational and violent. Because Influentials like to tap into the dark side of your nature and cultivate it. They like to create destruction. Your Guides will never ever walk away from you, should this occur. Instead they will try to harness your conscience and talk to you at a Soul level. You will hear them in your sleep and in the time when you are almost asleep. They will plague your conscience until you listen, trying to get you to feel and know that you need to change and get rid of those things you are doing that empower the Influentials.
Sometimes, you have a lesson in life that requires Influentials to act first. These Influentials are carefully monitored and are there to cause you to rise above a situation and become a better person. Remember, The Great Spirit of Life has the power of both good and bad. It will harness both side of this power to create a balance within you if necessary.
So you want to have a relationship with your guides, but you don’t know where to start? I want to remind you that you already know them. It is like this. I have a friend who I met when I was 19. She was the girlfriend of my brother and we were friendly acquaintances. We became a little closer during a camping trip, but as I was a medical student at the time, I was engrossed in my studies and when they broke up, it didn’t affect me. I sort of didn’t notice, but i did care, if that makes sense. Well, a few years passed and I saw her down at the shops, we exchanged phone numbers and talked. Then I didn’t see her for another few years and again we bumped into each other, I gave her my business card and we parted ways. Earlier this year, we bumped into each other again and we promised to catch up. I couldn’t find her and I left it up to fate. She found me and we finally did catch up. When we were sitting on her porch having coffee, I said to her..you know, I feel like I’ve known you my whole adult life. She said, you have. We just haven’t ever been able to sit and really talk. We are now close friends and we have a connection of past history and times of brief heartfelt encounters.
This anecdote is very much like the beginnings of a well rounded relationship between a person and their guides. You will know each other, you will love each other, but it will take the right time and place for it to all come together. Then, will come the time of learning to trust each other. That comes with you learning to tune in and listen and them trust in that you will take their guidance and direction. Start with listening to them about traffic conditions and directions, or asking for a parking place. Just little things when you are getting about. Then move onto asking them to tell you how many clients you will have in a day or whose going to ring on the phone. Build it up slowly. Also, work on feeling them beside you. It is like you are in the middle of a group of friends. Fell the closeness of the friends who stand with you. It’s not crazy if you don’t tell people who don’t get it. But it does sound a little strange to sceptical people and psychiatrists. So use discernment when you talk to others about your relationships with your guides.
Your guides want to teach you and show you the way. They want to warn you about people and situations and they want to protect you. But it’s only lip service if you don’t act on their guidance.
I am a channel and much of what I have told you today, has been channelled to you by my Guides.
I hope you got something out of it.
