Who are your Guides?


Who are My Guides?

I am always being asked how many guides do I have. Who are my guides? How can I connect to them? Can relatives or religious figures be Spirit Guides?

Spirit Guides are ethereal beings that come into our lives to help us with situations or difficulties in our lives. They are the gut feeling, the idea to do something better or easier, the voice of common sense. Our Spirit Guides are there to answer our questions. They want us to live the happiest, healthiest lives we possibly can.

“How many Spirit Guides do I have?” is a favorite question. You have many guides that work with you. They come in for all of life’s situations that you encounter. They can come to you in many different forms. They can be angels, elves, sprites, male, female, different forms, and religious figures. In the beginning of Modern Spiritualism they denoted 5 main guides.  These guides stay with you your entire life. They are the Joy Guide, Healer Guide, Protector Guide, Doctor Guide, and Master Guide.

The 5 main guides have a certain look and a specific energy. As with all the guides, when you connect to these guides you will know what they look like and what their energy feels like. It is important to know their energy so you know who is there. If you are having an issue with an emotional or physical issue, your Healing Guide is with you. If you are having an issue dealing with life and need to see the big picture, you can call on your Doctor Guide for help.

Here is a description of the 5 Main Guides that you have in your life:

The Joy Guide is the first guide to look at. The Joy Guide is also known as the “Gate Keeper”. This guide does not allow any guides or energies through that aren’t there for your highest and best. They also help when you are stressed or having troubles dealing with day to day life. They have an uplifting energy, They help you find humor is the darkest times.. The Joy Guide can appear as an elf, sprite, fairy, or even a childlike figure.

The Healing Guide is the next guide we will look at. The Healing Guide is the guide that helps when you need help with healing: physical, emotional, mental, and energetic. This guide also aids those healers when they are doing all types of energy and physical healings. These are the guides called upon when Reiki or other types of energy healing is done. They are with your doctors, nurse, and others in the medical field. The Healing Guides can appear as doctors, nurses, shamans, and any other healing individuals.


The Protector Guide- In Modern Spiritualism, the Protector Guide is also known as a Native American Guide. This is the guide that works to keep us safe. The feeling to not go into a place, stopping an extra second before we leave th stop sign, and waiting a few minutes before we leave the house an then realize we missed having an accident because we did. It is their job to make sure we are safe.  The Protector Guide can come in many different forms but the one most notable is of a native American, male or female, chief, warrior, or mother figure.

The Doctor Guide- This guide is the one that holds all of the wisdom and guidance to help you in your life’s path. They are the one that help you grow, see things in a better light, understand how to accomplish something without knowing where to start. They are your one stop for understanding and seeking information. The Doctor Guide can come as a male or female. They can be a doctor, nurse, or look similar to a college professor.

The last guide we will look at is the Master Guide. This Guide has not only been with you in this life but they have been with you in all of your past lives also. This guide holds all knowledge of your life path, your reason why you are here in this lifetime, It is very similar to having all the answers to all of your life questions and tests in one place. He also helps with closing issues from past lives. The Master Guide can appear in many forms including religious figure, family members ( as with all guides family members can be associated with that guide).

“How can I connect to my guides?” is the biggest question I get asked.  It is quite simple to answer. You can meditate to connect to your guides. Each guide has a specific place where you can meet them. When I do the Spirit Guide Workshop I take the class to those locations. You meet your guides rather than someone telling you who they are. Why is this important? So that  you know what they look like and how their energy feels so you know when they are around you. When you meditate, for example and want to meet your Doctor guide, find yourself traveling to a large office with a library of books and a desk in the center of the room with a high back chair behind the desk for your Doctor Guide and a chair in the front for you to sit. Allow your guide to appear to you. It is that simple.

Remember that life is free will. If you say “I am not hearing anything or connecting to one of my guides”, you might be blocking the information. You can always create a path for yourself in life and your guides will back you up. You do want to realize that when you want to come back to your original path they will be there for you also. Your guides always have your back. As the saying goes “When you see only one set of foot prints, it is not because you are alone, it is because I am carrying you”. Have faith and the guides will be there for you every time.



The guides learn from you as well as you from them. Some have led a physical life and some haven’t. Remember for every physical lesson you learn or every experience you have on this earth, the Universe and guides learn from it to. We are connected to the Source or Creator and with that we help the energies grow and learn. We are a part of other people’s paths and lessons as they are connected to us and ours.
