Spirit guides are recognized in every culture and religion in the world – here’s an old description I love: ‘We are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses…let us run with patience the race that is before us’*
My ‘cloud of witnesses’ has been a wonderful resource and support for years.
Last week’s post from Shareen was a great overview of some spirit guides – I loved reading it! This week I’m adding some examples from my experience:
A few considerations
In my experience when we ask Source for help, it’s often a spirit guide that takes the job. I’ve noticed that guides match up with people whose purposes they share. I imagine this as a spiritual bulletin board with colored job tickets!
Each human-spirit guide alliance has a defined scope and purpose. When the agreement is fulfilled, it can be updated or released with respect and thanks.
A few examples
I chat with my spirit guides when I’d like guidance for perspective, healing, information, or even an attitude adjustment. For instance, when I’m being too serious, my guides won’t respond but just chuckle. I get the message and lighten up!
Asking for directions: Where to find something or someone, appropriate timing etc.
Asking a spirit guide to ride in my car for company, or to help find a parking space – this isn’t trivial, they love to collaborate!
I love acknowledging spirit guides (respectfully) in a specific location, especially when exploring new places! There’s meaning at each site.
I may notice a client’s guides during a session, but I mention them only if the client asks. Guides sometimes want me to explain the help they offer so they can have your agreement and collaboration.
When several people are willing to resolve a problem, their guides can team up to help work through the issue.
In a crisis, spirit guides related to the people and supporters involved also work as a team.
Guides gather to support life events; births, weddings, graduations, deaths. They help with group events, in hospitals, at accidents, and in large teams when there’s a world event or disaster

Here are some ways to enhance communication with your guides:
Getting quiet: James Van Praagh suggests: “We can always ask our spirit guides to give us help. Our job is to quiet our minds, open our hearts, and listen.”
A little quiet lets us notice the subtle communication stream always flowing in the background. With practice you’ll strengthen your abilities and refine your sense of what’s worth noticing and what’s ‘background noise’.
Insight for your next growth step: Ask about your own spirit guides, enhance your relationship with them in a private reading with an experienced intuitive like an Aspen Oracle Energy Worker. We love working with you!
