Find out everything from the meaning of spirit guides to what they mean for your life. Whether you’re curious or just starting on your spiritual journey, we’ve got the information you need.
Spirit Guides: Who are They?
Spirit guides are not something to be feared. They want nothing from you but the best. And they want nothing from you in return, apart from your happiness.
Spirit guides are like personal coaches in the energy world. You can think of them as your special friends – assigned only to you.
These guides are aware of not just your ideal lifestyle but also what it is that will guide you in the direction of this lifestyle. They are capable of helping you find your true love, breakthrough creative blocks while working and help you on your way to achieving a better financial future.
However, there’s one major drawback: everyone can’t hear them. All can’t access this valuable guidance.
This is because it takes practice to connect with your spiritual guides. When you meet a friend in the physical world, you first have to introduce yourself before getting closer.
How to Meet Your Spirit Guides?
Your spirit guides have been with you for many years and in many past lives. They know you inside out – but haven’t you taken time to get to know them? Learn all about the different types of guides here, so you know who to talk to.
Here are the four most common types of spirit guides
You can find a lot of lists on different types of spirit guides, and here is one more to add to the pile. But, every person experiences guides differently, so we’ll only show you the four most common types.
#1: Guardian angels
Your guardian angels are your lifelong companions. These guardian angels are members of your spirit family who have lived with you during every life you’ve led. They serve as your main guides because they are with you for your entire life, even before birth.
“Your spirit guides have been with you from past lives. They share your spiritual journey.”
#2: Healing guides
In contrast to your guardian angels, healing guides are temporary. They come to you when you need help or have a lesson to learn.
Keep in mind that mindfulness and spiritual fitness can help you establish a strong connection with who your potential healing guide is. The closer you are, the easier it will be for them to connect with you.
#3: Ancestral guides
Did you know that some people believe a departed relative could become your spiritual guide? Ancestral guides are related to you by blood.
Ancestral guides can range from relatives who passed away recently or souls that you’ve connected within the past. Suppose you feel a strong sense of familiarity with one of your guides. In that case, this is indicative that they are an ancestral guide.
#4: Spirit animals
Nowadays, young crowds often refer to pop icons or celebrities at the forefront of today’s culture as their ‘spirit animals.’ It’s a nod to the concept originating from indigenous tribes and Native Americans. In these cultures, their “spirit animals” are like representations of their environment and what it can teach them or provide.
It’s been said that spirit animals are like your trusted teacher in this life. They may also be a deceased pet looking after you. If you had a spirit animal as a guide, what animal do you think it would be?
What is the Appearance of Spirit Guides?
Guides can have a variety of appearances and serve different purposes. Masculine, feminine, animal-like, or even just an energy force – they can be anything.
The key is to consult with your guides and let them lead you through anything your senses give you. The visual emulation gets clearer as your guide gets to know you better. As they know more about you, they’ll also be able to give you a better tour of what’s around your work site.
What are the behaviors of spirit guides?
Your spirit guides are not here to hurt you. Once you start tuning into your guides and accepting them, they will open up your world to new experiences.
When you are stuck with a decision, they can give you advice in an insightful way that is not condemning. They can also deliver their messages in a lighthearted and funny way.
Think of your guides as conveners and mediators. They can form connections with other guides in your local area or even with ones elsewhere.
Your guides will never push you for any particular outcome. Like a concierge at a hotel, they’ll help you with anything you need while making it seem effortless. It’s their goal to help connect your plans and provide you with options, but the final choice is up to you.
Doing your part is essential, but there’s no need to worry about details; take action and see what happens. When we trust our guides and let go of overthinking decisions, we can allow ourselves to move forward without hesitations. This can save us both time and effort rather than getting stuck on an idea.
Stay connected with your spirit guides: How to do it?
As we’ve covered, listening to your spirit guide can have significant payoffs for your well-being. Here are some practices you can try implementing to be closer with them and things they might want from you.
#1: keep one’s ears open
Some people hear the voices of their guides in their minds. Others will feel a ringing in their ears. These senses are all called clairaudience.
Whenever you hear ringing in your ears, it’s good to sit with it and ask your spirit guides what they want to tell you. This usually means that they want to warn you about something important, like potential danger.
#2: Be alert, vigilant, and wide-awake
Spirit guides may try to communicate with you in either the physical world or through your dreams and meditations. To improve your ability to visualize in these semi-conscious states, you can also try keeping a dream diary apart from keeping a journal.
There are many ways people see auras, in some cases, quite unconventional ways. Some people might be seeing auras around other people they encounter. These instances can indicate the importance of connecting with them at this point. TikTok is an app with plenty of experiences for you to explore.
#3: Be Calm and Loosen up
Have you ever had a lightbulb moment where you suddenly think of the perfect solution to your problems? It might be because you’re being guided when these moments happen. All of us have guides around us, and they can give us enlightening thoughts sometimes.
To find these answers, it’s a good idea to step away from what you’re fixated on and take the time to breathe. Move away from your thoughts to be more receptive to intuitive information.
#4: Be Broad-minded
Remember: your team of life coaches is always trying to point you toward a better, happier you. They will find plenty of chances for you to grow and improve with some open-mindedness, so don’t be shy! Remember to ask yourself and the experts around you for feedback about what could make your life even better.
You never know what type of opportunity is waiting for you. It doesn’t hurt to ask for help from the spirit guides around you.
#5: Use your emotions to guide you
There may be times when you are oddly drawn toward a particular person or object, and at first, it’s hard to put your finger on why. Seemingly out-of-the-blue shifts in energy, enthusiasm, joy, anger, and sadness are typical human experiences. And more often than not, they are from your spirit guides sending you a message.
I remember one time when I was climbing and got scared. I realized it was because my business felt like it wasn’t going well. It’s tough to see things from the perspective of your business when you’re so focused on climbing. Work on some other aspects of your life, get clear, and do better at tackling the business side of things!
Seek Guidance, Seek Greatness
If you keep an open mind and continue to listen, your spirit guides will also try to communicate with you. This may be through signs, numbers, symbols, pictures, or others. You may also see some coincidences in how the world communicates with you.
Connecting with guides and expanding your consciousness through meditation is a fantastic experience. It’s essential to get creative and listen and feel what happens inside of you during this process.
What will you ask your guides when you see them again for the first time?
