Spirit Guides are our “unseen” helpers. Although many titles have been used to refer to them, such as angel, guardian angel, guards, and such, a true spirit guide is a being whose role is to guide you on your journey: encouraging, inspiring, challenging, and lending wisdom for the sole purpose of your spiritual growth.
A true spirit guide is present with you for your benefit and spiritual growth. They do not have to make it easier on you, although they frequently assist. If they deem it more beneficial to make things harder, for the benefit of your spiritual learning or your soul growth, they may take that route.
Establishing your relationship with your spirit guide is truly gratifying and will bring life-long guidance and assistance.
