What is a Spirit Guide?
A spirit guide is any being, living in this realm or
another, who takes an interest in your happiness, safety, and spiritual growth.
They probably influence us more than we know, and if they are a true guide, not
just a random spirit visitor, their influence is always loving and positive.
They guide and direct our decisions, and inspire our thoughts and emotions.
It’s not that we don’t have “free will.” Of course, we all do. But, if we
listen and want to learn what they have to tell us, they make themselves known
in both subtle and dramatic ways.
Fairly often they are an ancestor or a relative,
though guides are not exclusively deceased family members. When people transition
to the spirit world at the point that we describe as “death,” they rest and are
encouraged by their guides and angels who’ve been waiting and watching for them
on the other side. After a time, “assignments” are created for them, with their
cooperation and willingness, of course. Some of those duties will be to watch
over, instruct, and nurture those of us who are still living on Earth.
What About Guardian Angels?
Angels are a separate category. They are spiritual
beings of light and unconditional love. They work for the loving forces in the
Universe to protect, foster our spiritual growth, and comfort us while we are
on Earth. They have never lived lives as humans, but some spiritual texts talk
about how they visit Earth and interact with humanity, taking on human garb and
showing up in ordinary settings for specific reasons. Guardian angels are
always with us, and “occasional” angels show up at the request of our guardian
for particular needs we have at a given moment.
Not All Guides are Deceased
Occasionally, a guide will appear in the flesh.
Counselors, teachers, spiritual leaders, benevolent mothers, fathers, aunts,
uncles, bosses, and co-workers all help us to learn spiritually. They
especially teach by actions and behavior, more than just with theory and words.
They can model spiritual growth, what it is, and how to do it, for us.
Guides from the Animal
And then there are our guides of the fur/feathered/scaled/etc. variety. Not every pet we’ve had will qualify as a spirit guide, but people reporting Near-Death Experiences say that often their animal friends run to greet them when they cross over. Usually, this is along with those who knew them closely on Earth, and other more elevated spiritual beings.
Guides Beyond this World
When we really think about how huge the Universe is,
it would be difficult to imagine that some of our guides wouldn’t be ETs. We’ve
all met people, who had something just a little eerily “higher frequency” about
them. A little more light in the eye, or a perceptive brilliance that’s really
unusual. These are clues to possible past existences in more advanced places
Connect with Spiritual Guides
The best way to start connecting with spiritual guides
is to look in, out, and up. In other words, look inside of yourself by using a
favorite meditation technique. Look out to others because they could either be
spiritual guides or could give you tips to connect. And look up to Higher Power
and the positive forces in the Universe because they are always willing to
love, help, and guide us when we do so.
Tarot Can Help Us Connect
Below is a five-point Tarot spread in a star shape
that is a pathway to connecting with your guides. Begin at the top with Card One,
then work left to right, top to bottom. Shuffle and ask your guides, both known
and unknown to you, to surround you now. Ask them to come through with the
information that you most need to have at this point in your life.
Often, guides will be felt behind, and slightly above,
where we are sitting or standing. To explore your questions more intricately,
try to sense how many guides are present with you. Do the spread for each of
the guides that you sense with you right now.
Connecting with My Spirit
Guides Tarot Spread
Ask each guide, individually, one by one:
Card 1- Who are you and what are you here to help me
Card 2- What message do you have for me at this moment?
Card 3- What is in the
message that I’m afraid to hear?
Card 4- How can I be
more open to your guidance in the future?
Card 5- How will this contribute to my overall spiritual growth?
It’s not as important to get a guide’s name as it is to sense and feel their energy and what the heart connection is between you. Sometimes you will see their appearance, hear them within your mind, smell flowers, cologne, or even tobacco, if they feel it will help you connect to them. Colors are given off by guides, as well as sounds, scenes, smells, and sometimes memories. The more you work with your guides, the more they work with you, and you can develop your own symbol system together.
A Thank You Goes a Long Way
It is always best to thank the guides for coming and for their insights before you close your psychic energy and go into ordinary consciousness. A prayer, song, poem, and maybe a yoga stretch or two, helps to signal to the guides that your session has concluded. It is good to let Spirit lead the connection, but you’re in control and can sense when you have completed your work.
Tarot card readings give you a deeper connection to Spirit. This means you’ll get the unadulterated insights you need about your past, present, and future, but only if you read with a tarot card psychic.
