Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?It’s my spirit guide!
There is a chance that even in the early stages of your development you will be introduced to a spirit guide, a teacher if you like. You will have a principal guide who will have an interest in your development from birth to death. They normally present themselves when you are ready to see them and not before. Sometimes they come through in past-life work simply because you are more likely to be dealing with soul work then and not personality issues.
This is what really interests this level of guide. They want you to do well and are willing to help, if you ask. That’s one thing people forget to do! But without that permission nobody in the spiritual realms can do a thing. They can suggest, they can point, but unless you ask they won’t do as much as they are capable of. In addition to this guide, you are likely to have teachers who move in and out of your life according to where you are.
For me there is only one rule when it comes to guides, and that’s to trust in what you see rather than worry about what others say. When I first met my own guide I was a little worried by the fact that he was a Native American, but that was just because I’d been listening to people who had opened their throat chakra before their crown and heart!
Why the fancy dress? Well, if your guide was a plumber, what would that tell you about them? Not a lot. Which is why they present themselves as Native Americans, gentle spirited ladies in flowing gowns, Merlin-like old men and so on. That way you have more of a sense of who they are and what they are likely to bring to you. Merlin types will probably steer you in the direction of Wicca or earth magic, graceful ladies tend to be about peace, tranquility and calming of the spirit. And Native Americans are linked to the cycles of life among many other things.
