Although you may feel as though you are totally alone in this life, it is believed and felt that there are Divine Companions whom are always with us. Before each incarnation, they choose to accompany us through this particular lifetime - from the moment we enter the world and until we leave. Spirit Guides are high vibrational and extremely evolved beings who have completed the cycle of birth and death in the physical plane and now serve as teachers, guides, and protectors to further elevate their vibrations even higher. The exchange is positive and assists both the spirit guide's soul, and the human being's soul to evolve and elevate in vibration through positive choices.
These guides work to assist you in processing and making sense of the guidance in your dreams and in your intuition. The quiet voice you hear in your head is often the voice of these teachers and guides. Additionally, they may make their presence known to you through signs and symbols. For me personally, seeing specific flowers, seeing anything from the Khmer culture repeatedly, or hearing certain songs reminds me of my spirit guide. As she was a Khmer noblewoman with very highly attuned spiritual gifts and a keen sense for if people are spinning the truth or not. An ability that I have and work diligently myself to improve daily.
Many people have only one guide, while others have multiple guides or a small team around them. Much of the structure of your guides participation depends on the distinct path and purpose of your life. A teacher, for instance, may have several guides, one in order to assist them through the academic aspects of their profession and another to assist them with the distinct emotional aspects of being a mentor for younger people. Police officers, firefighters, and soldiers will often have a "team" of guardians guiding and protecting them in the line of duty. Much of who your guide was is indicative of your own personal journey through life.
Despite popular belief, a spirit guide is almost never a passed over love one. Our loved ones DO stay with us in spirit, and we can contact them as we'd like - but they do not serve the same role as a spirit guide. Some individuals may have archangels or angels as spirit guides who are always with them. Yet, the presence of angels, it is important to remember, does not mean they are your permanent spirit guide. Angels can always be called on in times of distress to assist you for a short while. In the case that you do have an angel or archangel as your spirit guide or on your spirit based team of guides - changes are your mission in life is a complex one. You may be an individual traveling a challenging life path, if you have an angel as a spirit guide.
Everyone's spirit guide is always with them, whether the individual acknowledges their presence or not. We cannot call guides to us, nor can we send away the ones that we have at our will. They are a part of us and our particular journey. We do however have the ability to gain knowledge of who they are and what their role in our lives is and will be. We can always interact with our guides in proactive ways. If we'd like to know whom they are, we must simply just ask once we are in a quiet and meditative place. Whatever is revealed to us is their identity and key factors about who they are. Beings from the spiritual realm often send messages through signs and symbols.If you see a man wearing a nice suit, stay with that image as the person could be a philosopher or a seasoned businessperson. You may see an indigenous American, a monk, or perhaps no visual comes through - it's just key to keep your mind and intuition wide open to what you could see. If you have challenges discovering who your guide is, you can contact a psychic or intuitive sketch artist to help you. I had great luck working with Ros Coleman at http://www.roscoleman.com
Taking a proactive role in working with your guides can be a wonderful personal and spiritual growth tool. Unlike the beings who can advise us in the physical realm, the wisdom and advice of guides is not influenced by the nuances and petty things of this world. They reside in a higher vibrational realm, and the mundane aspects of your existence aren't factored in by them. As an example, if you seek guidance from your spirit guide regarding your romantic partner, the guide will ask you to focus on in what ways you are growing, what you are learning, what is left to learn, and what learning your partner is gathering from the relationship. This will get at the root and the true meaning of your relationship. The mundane aspects of it such as your partner being terrible at budgeting household finances or that they are messy with putting away or organizing their clothing is seen as irrelevant and petty.
Most incredibly, you can ask your guides to assist you in physical healing. Before you go to sleep for the night, ask that your guide helps you to receive healing as you are sleeping. You are never alone, your guide is there with you. Take refuge in knowing deeply that there is so much magic and healing to be found in this life at every turn.
