I have been getting a lot of questions lately about how to call forth a spirit guide! So, before I let you know this bit of information, I’m going to let you know what a Spirit Guide is, where it comes from and some other neat basics.
What is a Spirit Guide?
A Spirit guide is a human soul that is connected to you. It’s purpose is to, clearly, guide you in your endeavors, as well as protect you from any negativity that may be coming your way. That said, if you are the person causing the negativity to come ie. dark activities, over indulgence, self-loathing, and the like, then the Spirit guide can only counsel you and hope that you will make the decision to cleanse and come back to the light. so-to-speak. These guides are sometimes your ancestors, or spirits you cross on your journey, but other times they just randomly follow you and don’t really have any previous connection to you.
Where do they come from?
This answer is varied between faiths. This is how my faith explains it. The God, who rules over our souls when we leave our physical vessels (when we die), takes our soul and decides where it will go next. He examines our life and the lives that have come before the current one and through his process he decides if the soul needs to be a spirit guide, or to be immediately reincarnated. It is a blessing to become a spirit guide because it is a sign that the God trusts you to lead and protect the next generation.
How do I find my Spirit Guide?
Well this is the most controversial part of this post. There are countless methods of calling forth your spirit guide from meditation, screaming into the wind, using an incantation, being assigned one by a High Priest/Priestess, or my favorite choice, by asking the God and Goddess. Many times, people think that they are not “good enough” for a spirit guide, or that since they can’t see spirits they wont’ be able to have a spirit guide, this my friends, is completely incorrect. A lot of faiths call spirit guides “Guardian Angels.” Most of the time these guides are not seen, but they are felt. You must keep in mind that you have to be open to having help to be able to receive a guide. SO! How do you find it?
Here are a few ways:
1) This first way is my favorite…Prayer! If you need a little extra help, find a quiet space and pray to the God and Goddess and ask for a daily guide. You will be rewarded if you look for the signs.
2) This one is a little more hands-on and this should only be done if you have prayed and you believe your spirit guide is having a bit of difficulty getting to you. (Sometimes there is a bit of frequency errors on their part, you know transit and such. So, they just need a little nudge in the right direction)
Light 1 white candle and say the following 3 times
I call my guide from veil to veil
This chant will not fail
Flame and wax work as one
Call the spirit whose work is not yet done
Blow out the candle, go to sleep, and in the morning meditate on your guide and he/she will show his/herself to you. Perhaps not in a physical representation, but you will definitely feel them.
Do not fear, my friends, you are loved and you have help. Thanks be to the Goddess and God.
