Spirit guides are spirits or consciousnesses, more developed than our own, that guide us throughout our lives as humans on Earth. They are consciousnesses that have all had human incarnations on Earth and therefore understand the challenges and opportunities associated with living as a person. Each of us has at least one spirit guide with us all of the time and as much divine guidance and help as we need which may come in the form of physical, spiritual and mental guidance and any manner of helpful acts. If you were neither aware of spirit guides nor knew of their existence, this does not mean they haven’t helped you. Your prayers for divine assistance may be answered by these divine representatives in the most appropriate ways and even if you haven't prayed for help, your spirit guide may have helped you many times before, with many aspects of your life. Our spirit guides know every thought in our minds and understand more about our minds, bodies and souls than we do. Their divine love is unconditional and never diminishes, whatever we do. Our spirit guides will always keep trying to help us to realise our potential for growth, balance and happiness in each lifetime.
Spirit guides are a part of a hierarchy of ever greater divine consciousnesses that choose to help and guide the growth of souls which incarnate. Divine love and wisdom shines through the hierarchy great lords, masters, teachers and guides to illuminate the ones below and ultimately to you and me. Divine love is unconditional and cares for each of us, no matter how great or small our consciousness is - whether we are new souls or old and whatever choices we make we are loved equally. Each soul is divinely guided to learn and grow and humanity evolves.
We all have at least one spirit guide from birth but we can also have other spirit guides help us at different times in our lives, when we need them, and it is not uncommon to have a deceased loved one come to be with us. However, if you feel a familiar presence it doesn't necessarily mean that they are more loving or wiser than you. You can be sure, though, that every consciousness near you is there for a reason and has purpose.
Spirit Guides treat you with unconditional love and you can always depend on them, however they do not live your life for you. They know and understand your problems and will always try to help you but there are some things that they just can't help you with. Our souls grow more loving when it is less painful than the alternatives and we can't learn wisdom just by being given information by a spirit guide. Through our prayers and intent to live better lives and make wiser choices we may become better at hearing our divine guidance; remember, though, that the wiser and more loving choice is not always the easiest option.
