A guide on Spirit Guides.

Updated: May 22, 2022

As a Psychic Medium and Spiritual Healer one thing I have witnessed time and time again whilst doing both clairvoyant readings and energy healing sessions with my clients is that, even when you feel as though you are completely alone, there are divine companions who are always with you, Your Spirit Guides. Before our incarnation these divine beings choose to accompany us through our lifetime. It is said that when you are a soul in heaven, preparing to be born, you plan out the experiences you want to have in this life, and the qualities that will be your strengths in order to help you navigate through these experiences. You also choose your Spirit Guides based on their abilities to help you on your journey.

Spirit guides are highly evolved beings that have completed the cycle of birth and death in the physical plane and who are now serving as teachers and guides to further elevate their vibrations. Giving service as a guide helps with ones spiritual growth whilst also being an opportunity to help others. As Spirit Guides were once people just like you and me, they come with their own quirks, knowledge, passions and experiences. After their passing and having spent some time residing and learning in the realms of the heavens they get offered the opportunity to act as a guide for an earthly being. Becoming a Spirit Guide requires undergoing some intensive training which I often equate to the equivalent of a spiritual-counselor degree, in the Heavenly school your guide learns how to be with you in a supportive way without interfering with your free will.

Spirit Guides work to guide you by communicating with you through your dreams, intuition, inner voice and intellectual insights. You do not need to be a psychic medium or clairvoyant in order to communicate with your guides. That quiet voice you hear within, that gentle nudge or that twinge in your gut telling you something isn't right here, is often the voice of your guides. They may also make themselves known to you through signs and symbols.

For me, when I am at a crossroads in my life or journeying through a personal challenge, I find feathers everywhere, I see sacred symbols such as the flower of life pattern and I also repeatedly hear certain songs that 'speak to my soul', encouraging me and giving me answers to questions or emotions I've been sitting with. It is a reminder for me to be still and listen to the guidance coming through from my own personal guides. Feathers and sacred symbols are representative of the energy of my guides, most of whom were spiritual healers in their lifetimes and the others who are from the angelic realm.

Some individuals have one guide and others have multitudes, much of this depends on the path and purpose of your life. For instance, a teacher may have several guides, one to guide them through the academic nature of their profession and others to assist them with the great emotional requirements of performing such an important task. Much of who our guides are is indicative of our own personal journey through life. We can also have different levels of guides, we have some who we have chosen to be with us from the moment of our first breath, until the moment we take our very last, and we have others who may come and go for certain purposes, reasons or seasons in our life. For example if we are undergoing a massive health journey we will likely have new guides join us with expertise in healthcare or healing that will help us to navigate through our health issues.

Spirit guides are almost never a loved one who has passed away. Although our loved ones stay with us in spirit and we can contact them, they do not serve the same role as a “spirit guide”. Some individuals have archangels and angels as spirit guides who are always with them. Yet, the presence of angels does not always mean they are your spirit guides.

Angels can be called in times of distress to assist you for a short time. If you have an archangel or angel as a guide, chances are your mission in life is a complex one. Through my experience with being a psychic medium and energy healer, I have found that individuals with a challenging life path often have angels as spirit guides.

Your spirit guide is always with you, whether you acknowledge their presence or not, they are part of you and your journey. You can choose to gain the knowledge of who they are and what their role in your life is, which serve to help you deepen your connection with them and then you can interact with your spirit guides in a more proactive way. If you want to know who your guides are, just ask.

Get in a quiet and meditative space and ask that they reveal themselves to you. Do not get discouraged if you do not figure it out right away. Beings from the spiritual realm they often communicate through signs and symbols. Once you ask, you must trust your own wisdom. Pay attention to the pictures that appear in your mind. If you see a man in a suit, stay with that, it could be he is a philosopher or scientist. You may see a Native American, a Buddhist monk or you may see nothing at all. Keep your mind and intuition open. Pay attention to things that keep coming up after you have asked that they reveal who they are. If you are having a challenge discovering who they are you can also contact a professional psychic or clairvoyant to assist you. I have also recorded activation meditations which guide you through the process of meeting your guides, which you can access here.

Working with your spirit guides can be an incredible tool for your own personal and spiritual growth. Unlike beings who are in the physical, their wisdom and advice is not influenced by the “world”. They dwell in a higher vibrational plane and the mundane particulars of your situation are not relevant. For example, if you seek guidance from your spirit guide regarding a relationship, they will lead you to focus on what you are learning, what you need to learn, what you are teaching your partner, and what is the true meaning of your relationship. The fact that they leave the toilet seat up or are terrible at budgeting the household finances will be irrelevant. The information that you will be provided with will be actions that YOU can take to gain more understanding. When doing clairvoyant readings and energy healing sessions I connect not only with peoples passed over loved ones but also with your spirit guides, the information that comes through can be vastly different. Our loved ones often want us to know that they are ok and are at peace, they may talk about times gone by and bring through info to confirm its them. Where as our guides will be more likely to bring our attention to actions YOU can take in order to gain more understanding, healing and to help you achieve that which you desire. Whilst our loved ones are often keen to connect, our guides will be keen to empower.

You can also ask your spirit guides to assist you in physical healing. Before you go to sleep, ask that as you are sleeping, you receive healing.

You are never alone. Never. Take faith in knowing and understanding that there is so much magic and mystery in this life. Just for a moment let the “world” disappear. Raise your vibration and allow the beautiful gifts of spirit to wash over you. Life is so much more than what we see. Open your spiritual eyes and hearts and you will discover a world of wisdom, beauty and peace that you may never knew existed. Embracing the wonders of spirit in your heart will envelope you in a light of love and understanding, and will mysteriously transform you into a more connected and loving being.
