If you are a Catholic, perhaps mummy taught you to pray to a guardian angel to watch over you while you sleep. If you are Chinese, perhaps you have burned incense to please the house gods. Regardless of your cultural orientation, there would really be some sort of angel, demon, nature spirits and whatnot to live within your midst. Many people worship spirit guides in the hopes to get favor from them. Yes, most of them are viewed as guardians while there are also those who are sent to stir up confusion among men.
But what really are spirit guides? Why do many people fervently believe in them that they spend too much each year just to gain favor in their eyes? Why do people bother to even communicate with them at all when in fact, a man’s fate lies in their hands? Take a look at a brief exploration of the “The Other Side”.
Spirit guides were here as early as the time of Jesus. Even Jesus himself is considered to be an ascended master in the point of view of spiritualist. Ascended masters usually work for the benefit of humanity. These beings have led physical lives, such as Buddha and Krishna, who have been enlightened. Saints who have also experienced enlightenment can also be classified as ascended masters.
However, not all spirit guides were once humans. They can be energies, cosmic realms or those who have lived former lives and are about to incarnate in due time. Even animals are viewed as spirit guides. Although they are more of a companion, some people attest the presence of their pet’s soul especially during the first days of their death. Native Americans are firm believers of spirit guides. You can find plenty of fables and tales and how they have aided the lives of their believers.
Then again, spirit guides won’t be of use to you, unless you have opened your perception to them. There plenty of ways to communicate with spirit guides. One of them is through clairvoyance, meditation, dream time, visualization and the like. Meditation opens up your chakra. This way you can readily communicate or channel with your spirit guide.
Communicating with spirit guides is not for the faint of heart. Try to think about the number 1 for two minutes. If you can block away other thoughts like “Oh, I forgot to turn off the lights” at first try, that would be impressive. But as chains of thought interrupts our mind, deep meditation can be a hard thing to come by. But don’t worry; you can take spirit guide classes that will teach you how to channel your thoughts properly.
Finally, you have to have a lot of patience, perseverance and practice to be able to make contact with your spirit guide. Yes, it is a lot of work, but the rewards are amazing. Where can you get guidance, advice and warnings for free? Still doubtful? Take the time to try it and believe.
