Your spirit guide/master teacher is assigned to you at birth just like a guardian angel is.

You may choose to ignore your guide, but that guide will always be there regardless.  It is like God.  People can choose to ignore him, but he is always there.

It is your guide's job to guide you through your life.  It is that small voice in your head; the intuitive feeling you get sometimes when making a decision.

A guide is not a ghost.  A guide is Spirit. 

A guide is a highly advanced soul who works with you from the Other Side.  They have advanced to perfection and have been chosen to be your personal guide.  You may have more than one guide, but you will only have one master guide/teacher.  Other guides may come and go, depending on your needs at the time or what lesson you may be learning.

That is a great description of spirit guides. I believe I have 2 spirit guides. One is name Somali and appears as a buddhist monk...He is very wise and calm..
The other is  Named Natalia and she appears as a little Russian girl all dressed up in fancy clothes. She is full of fun and creativity and keeps me from being too serious... I was introduced to them during a self hypnosis session...

It is interesting that you have a child as a guide.  When children appear as guides, especially girls, they are usually what we call joy guides.  Are you intuitive?  Do you ever feel like you can connect with the Other Side?

Usually joy guides are those young spirits that link or connect us to the Other Side.  Mediums will use joy guides to line ppl up on the Other Side when they do mediumship or to go and seek out one particular person to bring over that a sitter may be requesting to connect with.

If you have not tried mediumship maybe you should read up on it.

In studying metaphysics for over 30 years and teaching classes at the local university on the subject of guides, I have to step in here and say a word about animal spirits as guides.

It is my understanding and belief that only what we would term "human" souls are our true master guide/teachers.  

We can and do have animal totems and spirits that do connect with us as well, mine in the owl, but they are not the same as our main guides.

Some people connect themselves to animals and even think that in past lives they have been animals.  That is just not possible.  You cannot take a human soul and turn it into an animal or vise versa.  Some Shamans may shape-shift, but a human soul is a human soul.

Our guides are located and exist on a etheric field higher than ours.  They can exist in both worlds at the same time or work from the Other Side with us.  There is a counsel of elders that assigns guides to us, and this team of guides will work with us.

Animal totems or guides exist on a different plane of existance, and they are not as high a vibration as "human" guides.

The highest level is God; then the angels; and then our guides.  The animal totems are lower forms of energy that work with us.

It is not necessary to know who your guide is; what their name is or to meet them in order for them to work with you.  They have been with you since your soul existed on the Other Side before you were born.  They worked with you mapping out your blue print for this lifetime before you were born, and continue to work with you now that you have incarnated into this lifetime.

Once ppl get into the metaphysics, some assume that they will connect with their guides and form a personal bond and relationship with them.  That is not always true.   It depends on the level of the soul; old or new, and how well one is spiritually connected to the Other Side.

Regardless of your spiritual connection to your guide, even if you don't have a clue that you even have a guide, they are still working with you.  It is like air.  You don't have to see it or study it.  It exists, one breaths it, and it sustains the body.  It is designed to work that way.

So, if one does not know their guide or their guide's name it is not a tragedy or that big of a deal.  Your guide still works with you, consults with the elders and helps guide you along the way.

Unfortunately for us, we are also given free will and guides may not interfere with the decisions we make.  They can nudge us in the right direction, but as the old saying goes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink.  They can only point things out to us, send us thoughts and try to help us, but in the end it is our free will decisions that determine our life path.

Recommended reading:  HOW TO MEET AND WORK WITH YOUR SPIRIT GUIDE

and ANIMAL SPEAK, both written by TED ANDREWS.  These are excellent books.

You've hit the nail on the head, Amethyst....

Although I've been trying all the known techniques for the last 2+ years, I haven't been successful in meeting my guide(s).  It's just not meant to be yet, I guess.  But I have learned so much via Sylvia Browne, John Edward and others ... spirit guides do exist.  I don't know about animal totems...have no clue what mine are, if I even have them.

I have always heard..........When the student is ready the teacher will appear.

I think that applies with Guides as well.  I know people that drive themselves crazy trying to connect with their guides.  They buy books, meditate, go to classes, etc. and just don't have an ounce of luck.  They are just trying too hard and it just isn't time.

I can try to explain to somebody what chocolate tastes like, but until they taste it themselves they really don't know and can only imagine.  Reading is great and gives one tips and info, but sometimes it just isn't the right time.  I have written a book on Spirit Guides but it has been sitting on my computer for several years.  Maybe I should look for a puslisher  LOL   biggrin.gif

One thing I have observed over the years is that most people do not make their personal connection with their guides until they are in their late 30s to mid 40s.  Earlier than that is usually rare or they are just more spiritually in tune.

Don't give up.  And what you might try is asking them to come to you in lucid dreaming.  During that time you are in an alpha state and the mind is more opened.  You may not remember it, but your higher self will, and that is all that really matters anyway.  We are all spiritual beings having a human experience, and our guides work with us daily.

I have been fortunate enough that I have a personal relationship with my guide.

That info is very interesting Amethyst! I've always been rather DIFFERENT! My father was a southern baptist minister and he was never quite sure to make of the fact that I was so intuitive that I could predict upcoming events or answer questions before people asked them. I generally have always been able to almost hear what people very close to me are thinking. I can remember asking my parents at about age 4 what the different colors around people meant...They just looked at me like I was nuts so I figured that wasnt a subject to bring up. The family always referred to me as the little witch due to this and the fact that my birthday is Oct 29 so close to halloween.
As this sort of thing wasn't encouraged in my family I learned to just use it for myself. I've always had a connection with children where they look at me like they see something adults don't and smile and run to me. This is how I ended up with a career as a preschool teacher and it worked well for me. I wonder if they can see the Natalia in me?
  As a child another interesting thing was my interest in cemeteries. I loved playing in them and chatting with the people there. I don't remember ever seeing anyone but I should had fun being there which worried my mother.
  Now at age 51, I've gotten interesting in the subject of ghosts and spirits. I always feel some sort of connection to them and so far I've found myself exceptionally lucky taking pictures, getting evps etc. Its like the spirits enjoy being around me, and I enjoy them too.
   I know NOTHING about mediumship or even where to start on such things.  Poor Natalia, if that is what she is guiding me towards, I must be a difficult  pupil. I've considered myself TALENTED enough to really do anything with my inborn skills. I do  remember my grandmother telling me I had a little something extra...but she never explained what it was smile.gif   Thanks for reading this novella hehe   JO

Amethyst - thanks for the reply.  Yes, I do ask my guide to come to me in my dreams and to let me remember any info he/she imparts to me.  Been doing that a couple of times a week for several months now.  Nothing yet.  You said late 30's to early 40's - well, have several more years to go then - am only 31 *grins*

Well, since you resurrected it, I may as well do the same smile.gif

I've been "out of it" for over a year now.  I left my old apartment and with it I declared myself "done" with everything.  No more creepy feelings, no more missing items, no more harrassment from negative energies, no more living my life worrying about something I can't taste, touch, see or hear.  Very surprising that all I had to do was say "okay I'm done.  Go away.  Bye.  Don't follow me," and it worked (probably a BIG part was guides, angels, etc making sure my wishes were carried out).  Life has been good in the year I've been in my new place..a few visitations here and there (like when my friend died last fall), but otherwise it's nice and quiet.

I still hear my guide(s) though.  Every night.  Most of the time it's too fast for me to understand it...it's like someone speaking REALLY fast and it's muffled.  My brain just can't keep up.  Occasionally something will come in very clear and I suddenly snap to attention to hear anything else...and in doing so I remove myself from the relaxed state so I don't hear it anymore.  I might be improperly broadcasting my response though...even though I'm talking (sometimes screaming) in my head, I'm not sure if it's happening as a private thought or it's actually being broadcast out to everyone.

Guess I'm not ready yet wink.gif

do you guys just talk to them or can you hear them talk back??


there is a way of seeing them if you cant:

get a mirror and find a comfy place where you is alone then hold the mirror up so you can see your face. look in to your eyes and no where else just stare at them. after a while you will start to see lots of different face's pass over yours in the end one face will cover yours and it will be one of your guides that is willing to talk to you or at the least show it self to you. then you can try talking to it. hope this works of any that try it. i've never done this cos i've no need to but i'm told it works. let me know how you go.

I have never talked to them nor have seen them. Will like to know more about it. How did you get the communication you have with your guides?

There is this thing you do with a mirror and a white candle. But, itís to see your self in a passed life. I did it one time and it worked for me.

Tell us more how you get to talk to them and how you started.

well i honestly dont know how i started i just did. i've been doing it since i was a little kid. the gudies have changed from time to time as they have moved on to other "jobs" as they call them but have alsways been able to do it.

i talk to them just like i would to anyone cos i see them just like i do any one else. 24/7.

my current top gudie was kinda like my step father when he was alive. when he "crossed over" he did what he calls "training" which took about 1 and a bit years in our time (time is very different for them) and he became my guide. he told me that he left just so he could do this. so he follows me every where i go adn talks to me when ever he thinks he needs to or when i bugg him enough. i'm told that we have a nuimber of levels with in our guides and as they get stronger and are needed else where they move up and finlly on to other things. they wont tell me what they move on to cos they say its not something i should know but i do know that some get to come back and some dont.

i also know that not everyone gets a guide that they knew and not everyone gets to know the gudies they have but all acn talk and ask questions of their guides but its up to the guide if they feel you need the answer.

My guides are Natalia and Somali...
Natalia appears as a young Russian girl. She is always dressed like a little princess, lots of frills and ribbons. She is very playful and I think thats why I still love to play with children and collect toys. natalia keeps me young. Somali appears as buddhist monk. He is bald and wears and orange robe. He is very stern looking and apparently is in charge of my spiritual development. I had self hypnotic program that I used to meet my guides. It was very interesting. I don't normally communicate or talk to my guides, I just assume they are there quietly doing their jobs and will let me know what I need to know. I think they have their hands full with me!
