As things get worse in the world and people struggle to make ends meet, the prevailing questions people ask me are in regards to their spirit guides, who they are, if they have any messages, and so forth. I believe people look for spiritual answers when the material world fails them but ignore the guidance the universe and spirit guides have to offer when things are going in their favor. This is a mistake. There are often warning signs or different opportunities presented before things go bad that people should be paying attention to as a preventative measure. Most often, I have people telling me, “I had a bad feeling about that,” or, “I knew I shouldn’t have done that,” but they make those mistakes anyway. To break that habit, one should stop and ask oneself from where exactly those “bad feelings” or intuitive knowledge come. I usually tell people in these cases that the voice of conscience throwing up little red flags or telling you certain things is actually the voice of your spirit guide.
The relationship between a person and their spirit guide can be the most deeply personal in that lifetime. This is the soul that knows the most about you and what you’re hoping to achieve with the present lifetime, and they exist in order to guide you toward your lifetime goals. There is a difference between a spirit guide and an entity of protection, however. A spirit guide typically does not intervene in cases of emergency where one’s life is in danger. Those instances are when ancestral entities or angels (if you believe in angels) intervene to protect you if it’s not your “scheduled time of departure” to word death mildly. I describe it as a spirit guide will warn you before going into a dangerous situation or try to make it difficult for you to get there, but if you ignore it and do it anyway, the angels or ancestral entities will throw proverbial weight around like bodyguards unless it really is your time to depart. There are also different types of spirit guides. They can be human souls who are no longer reincarnating (the majority), or they can be totems, animal spirits, or other nature spirits. I’ve seen most people have a human spirit guide and some type of animal spirit guide. My mother has a cat as hers, for example.
A big misconception about spirit guides is goes like this: “My grandmother died when I was a little kid and I think she’s my spirit guide now.” Sorry, but no, that’s not the case. A spirit guide is with a person since gestation and therefore could not possibly be living in the person’s lifetime at all. Spirits of family members departed within a person’s lifetime are just that — spirits of family members. Yes, they check in and visit you, and some may act in roles of protection, but they will not step into your spirit guide’s job description. That position was agreed upon by your soul and the guide’s soul before you were born into this life. In most cases, you have been through past lives with your spirit guide, but rarely do I encounter a spirit guide that has reincarnated recently. In order to achieve that kind of level of responsibility, it has to be a very old soul and most likely finished with reincarnating altogether.
My spirit guide was a Native American in her last lifetime, so that is how she presents herself now. All entities will show themselves in the most recognizable way to you. Her last lifetime was the early 1700s and she was the equivalent of a midwife in the region of what southern Mexico is now. I was a rather young mother-to-be within her community (young for today’s standards) at age fifteen. Unfortunately, I languished in childbirth for a very long time and died under her care, my child dying with me. That relationship of caregiver and patient in my worst moment at that time was what planted the seed for her becoming my spirit guide in this present lifetime, which is so filled with health challenges, including the loss of a child. I have also been very drawn to maternal figures throughout my life such as the Virgin Mary and the goddess Isis. I count my spirit guide among the most influential maternal figures. Her name at that time was Nauwa, which I found out later is a word meaning drum. Calling on her during meditation affords me an opportunity to receive guidance and advice that I would totally miss if I was ignoring her presence in my life.
What Nauwa is to me is a preexisting relationship ready for the taking between each of you and your spirit guides. They are the universe’s way of giving you a built-in therapist and guidance counselor. People who have good connections with their spirit guides tend to live happier lives with a better idea of where they’re going and how to move toward their goals. Simply knowing that you’ve always had and always will have someone on your side is a big relief for some people.
I have been getting several special requests for readings about spirit guides in the last year. For a long time, I was only doing it by special request because I wanted to be sure I was connecting in a way that was helpful to both the client and the spirit guide. Now that I’ve become more comfortable connecting to this type of reading, I have decided to include it in my regular selection of readings on my website. My goal is to help people establish a connection with their spirit guides and then teach them how to maintain a regular connection so that an intuitive like me no longer becomes necessary. The job of every intuitive should be to teach their clients how to awaken their own spirituality. While we do need to make a living, the bigger picture is really about giving the world its own spiritual tools. To explain the two new readings I’m offering:
Who Is Your Spirit Guide – $30.00 & $60.00 price tiers – This reading will give you the name your guide presently uses, a physical description of how he/she presents him/herself, a description of a previous life in which you were together, and any specific messages that might come through for you from them. Additionally, I will begin teaching you techniques to establish and maintain a healthy, conscious connection with your guide and follow up on your progress. Click here to go to the readings ordering page.
Your Spirit Guide Plus Portrait – $90.00 price tier & above – This is a unique reading because it utilizes my skills in psychic drawing, which is related to automatic writing. Automatic writing is the process, or product, of writing material that does not come from the conscious thoughts of the writer. The writer’s hand forms the message, and the person is unaware of what will be written. It is sometimes done in a trance state. Other times the writer is aware (not in a trance) of their surroundings, but the actions of their writing hand. Psychic drawing is the same concept except the intuitive (me) sketches images instead of writing words. So by purchasing this reading, you will receive everything in the Who Is Your Spirit Guide reading, plus you will receive an 8×10 (inches) charcoal portrait of your spirit guide. I can do color portraits but the price will have to be negotiated. A visual image of your spirit guide allows for a stronger connection during the meditation process.
