We’ve had some questions about Spirit Guides in our private community group Nature Spirits, Spirit Guides and Ghosts. I wanted to share information I’ve learned from my own spirit guides. It is not the be all of information – but is offered in a spirit of sharing, and as the start of dialogue.
It’s a Big Universe
Infinity is very large! That means there are an infinite number of variations on a theme (creation). Since there is no true limit to existence (we only think there is), there are no limits to what can occur.
There are many types of life forms possible.
Each of us has evolved over eons, moving through various types of life forms from rock to human, star beings to human, spirit to form. Each of us originally spun forth from source which means we are source at our core. We keep that knowledge deep inside ourselves and it drives us to keep moving on – we know there is more.
The paths we travel are unique to each of us. We develop proclivities for different types of life forms due to our own actions. What we become and who we associate with evolve due to the part of source we emerged from, whatever mission was handed to us by source, by the continuous situations we encounter, the decisions we personally take on those situations, and the other forms of creation we encounter and befriend, love or anger along the way. Many of these life forms keep in touch with us over incarnations.
There are so many options that in truth the question is not “Are there spirit guides?” It is rather “Who am I connecting to and is the association a productive one for me?”
Some types of guides who exist are Spiritual Masters such as Buddha, Christ and Muhammad. These are life forms who consciously chose to come to earth to help humans. Over the centuries, their consciousnesses have strengthened as they have been called on. Each now encompasses many, many levels of understanding – they can help the child to the saint. This is always a good place to start – in such a protective environment. You can call on their protection, and they will help you to the extent that the universe permits and that you accept (free will).
Other Types of Spirit Guides
There are also many, many other varieties of spirit guides – good and trickster.
We each have a number of guides, who we may or may not consciously acknowledge. There are also many types of non-seen life forms who might be in contact with us. What they can offer us and how they interact with us is as varied as they themselves are.
When you are communicating with these beings – it is a very normal process known as “interdimensional communication.” That is – you are simply conversing on a larger band width than people nowadays currently choose to use.
Now a life form of another dimension can easily say he/she is here to help you – any life form can say that. You have to learn how to discern if this is true. To do this consciously, you have to develop your own inner wisdom.
A trickster will try to convince you not to test them, and protest that you have to simply believe them. They say (falsely) that they are all-powerful and they are here to serve you (false) and to make you wealthy and rich (false objectives that come with a lot of baggage). Don’t believe any beings telling you this!
A real spirit guide will work with you to make sure you understand what they can do, and have you test them that they can really do that. Take them up on this, and make this the base of your mutual trust.
There is the genuine opportunity for you to associate with positive beings who are angels, nature spirits, departed family members, life forms who made arrangements with you to protect you in this lifetime, spirits who are the over-lighting energies for various professions (legal, medical, sports, etc.)…and the list goes on.
Why can you hear Spirit Guides and others can’t
You have a consciousness affinity for specific frequencies or beings which is why you can connect with them. Other humans you associate with may not be able to connect with your guides. This can be because your friends, over eons of time, adapted to other frequency worlds and have not expanded their communication abilities into frequencies you are comfortable with.
It is important when you first start working with a guide to not only test them but also to keep silent about your newly forming bond. Otherwise, other humans might try to convince you this new situation is false. Once you are strong in your connection, you can share.
Lastly, if you are unsure or suspicious, you can invoke your spiritual master or the source itself (whatever you call the source – God, Supreme, Great Spirit, etc.). If you invoke sincerely and can chant your guide’s name or the source’s name – false and trickster forces have to back away. Darkness cannot exist in the presence of pure light. The negative forces might try to prevent you from saying your protector’s name. Just keep focusing until you can say it completely and chant it over and over until you feel the negative energy leave.
So – this is some information about spirit guides.

Over the past several months I also have come to consider the possibility that many of what we might think of as “spirit guides” are actually angels. Angels are of course spirit beings, and they do guide us. It’s quite possible we have a mix of such spiritual beings assisting us at all times, and that they even come and go as needed. Altogether, it’s a very interesting topic that could generate a very compelling conversation.
Thank you for your comment. There are many kinds of beings who help humans. And like we humans with children – we may say Santa gave them a gift, because it is what they want to hear right then, but we know who really gave it. If it make the person happy, inspires them, helps them…then who did the giving really doesn’t matter to the adult. It’s like that with many guides. As we grow in wisdom, we begin to understand these matters in different ways. Angels are very close to humans and each human has a guardian angel working with them. That is their job, so they don’t need recognition – just success in helping their human to grow! Very often, they will leave your understanding who they are to your own current needs. A very complex topic, indeed. BTW – you posted your notice on our website. if you want to post to our closed community, post your reply at the very bottom…Thanks…Atala
I would love to know my spirit guides name to facilitate conversation. How do I find out a name and then bring my guide(s) closer?
Hello Charlotte. You are always connected to your own, always-with you, always protecting you guides. It’s just that at sometime in the past you told them to stop talking to you, or you stopped listening to them. You just need the sincere wish to be back in communication with them, to give them permission to contact you, and then to sit still and listen. Their voices are often soft to us as they are in another dimension from ours. You need to accept when you hear them that they are not your imagination, which is often hard to do. And test them to make sure they are real, not imagination – they will help you with that. Names don’t mean as much to them as to us – some guides have had many incarnations with different names – some their real name is unpronounceable by us – and they will sometimes let you just choose a name for them that pleases you. Don’t worry about the name thing.
