“We begin to see that we are spiritually linked with people halfway around the world, and with those who lived hundreds, even thousands of years ago. We begin to see that we emerge from, and are the expressions of, a single consciousness that is limited by neither time nor space.”
― Hal Zina Bennett
Spirit guides are the spirits of beings who have crossed over and who have been assigned as assistants to people living in a physical body. They fill a function similar to that of Guardian Angels but with the added benefit of being able to better relate to human conditions. One or two spirit guides are said to stay with us from cradle to grave and others come to us in special times of need. You will know some from past lives, either in a similar function or having actually been incarnate at the same time.
Even though each of us has many angels and guides around us at any given time, they never intrude on our free will but are always willing to help us if asked. The key to being able to work effectively both with spirit guides and the angelic realm is to be a clear channel. This means the ability to become still and receive messages from beyond the veil – a bit like tuning into a radio station that isn’t easy to find. Once you have found it, you can quite easily establish a clear channel if you are willing to practice.
Different things can get in the way of connecting and working with spirit guides and the biggie is, of course, our deepest beliefs about the spirit realm. Perhaps you were brought up in a traditional Christian environment and told that all spirits are demons. Or maybe your parents and school teachers were all atheists who made fun of anything ‘woo.’
Or perhaps your doubts go to the very core of your being and you do not feel worthy to be loved and cared for by spirit in this way. This spread will help you tune into your deepest held beliefs and by bringing them into awareness, hopefully clear any blockages to working with the spirit realm if this is something you truly desire to do.
“Your Spirit Guides and Angels will never let you down as you build a rapport with them. In the end, they may be the only ones who don’t let you down.”
― Linda Deir
The spirit guide Tarot spread also helps you find out some facts about your guide, why they are in your life and how you can best work with them for the highest good. This spread works equally well for connecting with a spirit animal.
