What Exactly Is A Spirit Guide?
by Sylvia Browne
Many people are bewildered when it comes to what a spirit guide is. I understand this confusion, because each of us has angels (ten categories in all); our loved ones who have passed before us to the Other Side; and ghosts, who are souls who havenít make it to The Other Side and feel that theyíre still alive.
Let us focus for a moment though on spirit guides. These are entities who have lived live on this earthly plane. They can be male or female, and theyíre very solid in their own dimension on the Other Side. They study our chart and help you decide the lessons youíre here to learn, and also how they can help you do so. To put it in the simplest terms possible, you made a contract with this particular entity to watch over you while youíre in life.
Many guides often study for a long time to be your guide so they can get your chart right. Of course, you have help from the Council, too Ė the spirit guide will approach the Council before your birth and even after you come into life for advice and guidance with their charge (thatís you).
Sometimes spirit guides have lived lives with you, but this is fairly rare. Guides canít be relatives who dies when you were three years old or younger, because that would mean that you went unattended for a period of time. No, the guide is with you when you enter, and itís there throughout your life. The guide even helps to take you to the Other Side, along with your loved ones, angels, and souls you cared about before you came into life, but whom you havenít necessarily known on Earth.
