Meet your Spirit Guide Part I
written by Sandra Cooze
The first time I ever heard about Spirit Guides was during my first Reiki attunement class. At first I thought only Reiki practitioners had Spirit Guides for protection and support. I took part in a guided meditation to meet my main Spirit Guide and then was told that I could now work with them. Well, I had no idea how to do that and most importantly, why. So I simply forgot about them for quite a while.
When I began teaching Reiki and led my students down the path of meeting their own Spirit Guide, I started to wonder about their purpose in our lives and who they really were. So one day I sat down and just said “Hi! Got a message for me?”, and that was the beginning of a wonderful relationship between me and my Spirit Guide team.
Spirit Guides are higher dimensional beings whose sole purpose is to serve us in our human experience. They do so by answering our calls for help, guiding us in our daily lives, sending us messages and encouraging us to move forward with our hopes and dreams and helping us to bring them into reality. If we let them.
We all have our own path and each path is different. Our Guides know and respect that. Whether we choose to follow their guidance or not, they love and support us unconditionally. Our Spirit Guides are our cheerleaders, our mentors, our best friends, our guides and protectors. They can support us in achieving amazing things. If we let them.
You probably noticed that I am repeating “if we let them” several times. That’s because our Spirit Guides won’t just go ahead and even the path for us. They can’t. They are not allowed to. Why is that? We live under the universal law of free will. This means that whatever we do is our choice and no one can take that choice away from us. Of course, oftentimes our choices affect other people around us either in a positive or negative way, but then it is their choice whether they allow our choices to affect them or not. So you see, our lives are a string of choices. They unfold in front of us by the choices we make. Our Spirit Guides are not allowed to interfere in our choices, unless we ask for their guidance.
Many times it happens that we ask for their guidance without knowing it. Think about a time when you felt stuck or did not know which way you should turn. Perhaps you were in a tricky situation or had a tough decision to make. Maybe you thought something like “What should I do?”, and shortly thereafter the answer just popped into your head, am I right? That knowledge came from your Spirit Guides.
I hope you enjoyed this article. Next month I will show you how you can consciously communicate with your Spirit Guides and incorporate their wisdom into your daily life.
