Spirit Guides, specifically, are disincarnate entities that have evolved in their universal awareness through living many lifetimes on Earth and/or other dimensions. They take on the role of an advisor, guardian, or teacher. Our Guides act as intermediaries between our higher self and Source. Their attraction to us is either because they have known us in this, or a former life, and/or because they are of like mind. When you work with a Spirit Guide, you are specifically invoking beings that have this level of awareness.
When we open the doorway to receiving guidance from our Spirit Guides, it enables the channel of communication to flow between them and us. This is not a complicated process as many might think. It simply requires openness within the individual to commune with their personal Guides. You do not have to know their names, or anything specific about them for this process to take root. It is simply the willingness to begin the flow of communication between them and us. Our Guides are always listening.
At the same time that you are looking for answers in your life, your Spirit Guides are trying to reach you. They will avail themselves of any opportunity that enables them to communicate with us. There is a higher path to walk, and that path is what is referred to as destiny. Destiny, however, is not based upon what transpires in the outer picture, as much as it is the movement of soul towards fulfillment and completion. Our Spirit Guides have only one objective in mind: to guide us toward the fulfillment of that destiny. They cannot guide us towards a path that is anything other than our highest good.
Nonetheless, each individual has free will and will often make choices based upon the level of consciousness they possess at any given time. Our Guides cannot detract us away from the free will choices that we make. This is where growth and learning become paramount. The individual cannot avoid whatever life lessons need to be learned. As Spirit says, “The human dimension is imperfect. This is by design. If not, growth would never happen at the soul level.” At the same time, our Spirit Guides are always there to redirect us toward clarity and inspiration – when we are ready.
The mental chatter in our head that keeps us in confusion must be bypassed in order to hear the wisdom and direction of our guides. It is not about trying to silence your mind forcibly, however. It is not about fighting with oneself. It is about listening to the soul’s voice as the true directive on the path. Spirit only responds to the soul’s voice. That is the part of the individual that can hear Spirit. If your mind is busy trying to figure life out, you cannot sense your Spirit Guides trying to reach you.
Therefore, it is necessary to arrive at a place of clarity within the soul, and then communicate to your Spirit Guides about what you need assistance with on the path. This will be reflected back in your life through guidance, wisdom, and inspiration.
