What is a spirit guide?
by Bob Olson, BestPsychicDirectory.com, BestPsychicMediums.com & AfterlifeTV.com
A spirit guide is a spirit on the spiritual plane who guides a spirit having a human experience on the physical plane. In simpler words, a spirit guide is a spiritual being who is guiding a human being.
Getting much deeper in definition, a spirit guide is the spirit of a soul who has chosen to assist the spirit of another soul during the latter’s human life. I also believe that we are guided by our soul, but it’s more appropriate to refer to this as your higher self than a spirit guide.
There are many beliefs that cannot be verified regarding spirit guides, so I’ll just tell you what makes the most sense to me. We each have one or more key guides (main guides) who guide us throughout our lifetime. These are spirits who have not lived during our lifetime, so it is nobody we would know from this lifetime. Naturally, if they had lived as a human during our life, they would not have been able to guide us from above while they were here. For this reason, they have always been in spirit while you’ve been experiencing your human life.
It is possible that our guides change as we age and grow, but I tend to believe we have at least one who sticks with us throughout our lifetime.
We also have temporary guides who do come and go throughout our lives, and this is because we have specific needs along the way. If you need help with courage, self-confidence or a certain talent during your life, a particular spirit who specializes in that area would assist you with that matter. Once you no longer need that spirit’s help, they move on.
