We all have guides. I sort of prefer the term “soul guides”, as it brings back the recognition that on a soul level, we are already very intimately familiar with our guides, many of whom have worked with us over the course of many lives, and across many timelines and existences. I like the term “soul guides” too because the work our guides undertake with us has everything to do with our soul trajectory, and soul growth.
Our guides are interested in the accomplishment of the tasks and objectives that we set out for ourselves before coming here, before taking on a new human personality and integrating with our human host bodies. These tasks and objectives are the tasks and objectives of our souls.
As an intuitive practitioner, I encounter people who want to understand more about their spirit guides – what their names are, how they look. There is often, in spiritual communities, an insatiable curiosity about “guides”, and the first port of call on the spiritual quest of many folks in these communities is “meeting their guides.” Cue downloaded guided meditation, and voila, guides show up in all their glory.
