Wendy, what is a spirit guide and how do we know we are guided by a spirit. I know many people who could be deceived by this, how do you prove what you believe? Lennie
Hi Lennie, spirit guides are spirits that work alongside us to guide us on our life path. There are spirits on all levels in the spirit realms and everyone is influenced by them. However, those who have knowledge of spirits, seek to be guided by advanced spirits that can guide us to walk a path of wisdom, caring, peace, justice and other spiritual values. You would know if someone was guided by an advanced spirit by the way they choose to live their life.
If someone has a native american spirit guide, they are guided to care for weak and disabled in their community, would honour animals and give thanks for them, love the seasons, know the landscape, enjoy crafts, and would be hardworking and skillful. They would be guided to be involved with ecology and community work.
Someone with a Chinese guide would probably be a very balanced character, slow to anger and be considerate and kind and might be interested in I Ching Book of Changes. Most advanced Chinese guides were followers of the Way, the Tao Te Ching.
Each culture and country around the world has had advanced souls who have led an exemplary life of kindness and generosity. When in the spirit world, they continue to learn so that when they guide a person, they can influence the person to change their life in a beneficial way, for the highest good.
We are in the physical realm and need to eat and have somewhere to sleep. We have a mind unseen that needs stimulating so we can continue to learn. We have an unseen emotional life, we grieve when bereaved, we laugh, we feel fear about the future, so we need to mature and develop our emotions so we are able to withstand difficulties and frustrations. Our spiritual life is dependent on the way we treat other people, the planet and ourselves. If we treat others badly, do not care for the planet's dwindling resources and do not respect and care for ourselves, we are not being guided by an advanced spirit. However, if we are thoughtful and considerate and put the needs of others before our own wants, then we are likely to be being guided by a spirit of some distinction.
