What are Spirit Guides, What Do Spirit Guides Do and Where are They?

We come into this world with helpers from before we take our first breath until we take our last breath we have Spirit Guides to assist us in every way they can. They are angels, ascended masters, messengers, ancestors, and star beings. Most of us have many guides and many types of guides. Some guides are with us our whole lives and some come into our lives and leave our lives as our life path changes.

Spirit Guides do not exist in this reality, they exist in another reality, dimension, or realm. They are not like ghosts that are living in the human world. Instead, they are in their realm offering guidance through a means of communication we don’t truly comprehend. They live outside this world and all its limitations. From their realms, they can access us any place and anytime in our existence to help. They live outside of time. They live outside of the limitations of space. Therefore they can be anywhere and everywhere at once. They are with us at all times.

They communicate with us through various means. Sometimes telepathically, sometimes through feelings (physical or emotional), sometimes through visions or images in our minds, sometimes through a voice or words in our heads; and sometimes through the physical world by conveying their message through songs on the radio, overheard conversations in public, animal appearances and so on.

It is very rare for Spirit Guides to show up in the physical world or that we hear them with our physical ear. When they do it is similar to a hologram, like projecting their image into this reality. This is a very rare event and most people never experience this, because the guides must follow the sacred laws. One of which is to never cause fear and other is to not interfere with your life.

Not causing fear means they must always be mindful to keep their presence within the boundaries of what you can accept. Therefore they are respectful and gentle and their presence is known to you by means of subtle communications, hints, nudges, and signs. A big part of what you experience with your guides is up to how open you are to their help.

Not interfering means that the guides cannot help you without your request. You must ask for help in order to get help. They cannot magically make your life better unless you ask and are willing and open to this occurring. Our doubts and fears keep us from being fully open to their assistance. Our guides can make our lives so much easier if we ask them for help. From finding a parking space to landing that great job our guides can help us in big and small ways if we are to ask. We do not need to be a great channel in order to get help from our guides, they will help us whether we can hear them or see them or not.

There is also no bargaining energy with your guides. You do not need to be good, or make a deal, or do anything that you think will please them in order for them to help you. You just need to be willing to receive the help. The energy of treating your guides with respect, reverence and gratitude will go a long way to open you up to get more from them, yet, it is not for their sake that this helps but for yours. Your guides will never punish you or stop helping you for any reason ever.

There are times when we feel the guides are not around us or not communicating with us. These can be times when they are allowing us to go through changes or transitions and making choices on our own. But they are always available to help us even when they feel far away.

Guides are here to help us through their wisdom, their specialties, and experience. Some people have healer guides, some people have artist guides, some people have teacher guides, and so on. Yet all guides have access to all the mysteries of the universe! And so do we! The limitation we have for understanding all the mysteries of the universe is our own curiosity (or lack of curiosity).

When we dedicate ourselves to the practice of communicating with the guides we get more: more help, more guidance, more love, more insight, more from them and more from life.

I am very happy to assist anyone in strengthening their connection to Spirit. It is my calling and my joy to help others feel the power of the wisdom, love, healing, and connection that blesses those who open to Spirit.

Watch Out! How Your Psychic Senses Can Get You In Trouble

by Janet Blessings

Janet Lightstone

Working with Spirit can cause a great high, so can doing readings, journeys, and mediation. We love to be in the ethers communing with the universal love and power of our spirit. When we do this part of our consciousness leaves our body to connect and get information. Even day dreams, fantasies, deep sleep dreaming can take us out of body.

As great as that feels, we have to be in our bodies to stay present to the now, to deal with day to day life, and to keep from living in chaos that can come for not being here now. Sorry to bring you down, but we have to live on planet Earth after all.

One of the most frequent comments I get is: “for a psychic you are so grounded”. Well, I must confess, not always…

I love being out of body as much as the next person. There are days when I am doing readings non-stop for hours. Then I have to go to the grocery store, make dinner and be a mom. I might feel totally present to do those things but once I start driving I might miss my street, forget what I need at the store, or drop something then I realize I am not as grounded as I think I am. When it is worse I could be clumsy, break things, run a red light, and more!

As you can see being ungrounded can be dangerous. You may know people who are ungrounded by their behavior like: they forget what they say, miss appointments, are frequently late, break things by accident, have frequent car accidents, can’t keep track of schedules or money. This can lead to a chaos filled life of always cleaning up their messes either with injuries, damaged property or financial crisis. They may be great fun to be around and have great wisdom to share but quietly you wonder why they always have such bad luck. It’s not bad luck, they are not in their body!

The long term effects of being ungrounded can be hyper-sensitivity, over emotional reactions, crankiness or even depression. Many psychic people are on anti-depressants. If it should get to that point the psychic senses can shut down and the psychic messages become muddled or lost all together.

Being grounded not only helps you with living a better day to day life but makes you a much clearer psychic!

When I notice that I’m not as in body as I think I am I can do many techniques to keep me in my body to do what I need to do without incident.

Quick ways to get back in body:

*Vigorously rub your hands together for one minute.

*Eat something – always have a small snack or nutrition bar near you and focus on the act of eating to bring you present.

*Drink something- It should be hot or cold to get the attention of your physical senses.

*Put your hands on the ground- focus on the energy coming up from the ground to your hands, wait at least one minute until you feel back in your body.

*Go barefoot in the dirt.

*Hug a tree

*Clean something

Visualizations to get back in body (these take a few minutes):

*Imagine cords of light going from the bottom of your feet and tailbone to the center of the earth.

*Imagine you are sinking into the deep nurturing soil of the earth until you are fully surrounded by it.

*Sit near a tree asking her for grounding, stay there until you feel fully in your body.

*Imagine you are growing roots that implant and firmly connect with the earth.

Things that help you stay grounded to keep in your space:

*Dark dense stones (carry one with you if possible)



*Kids – the most awesome grounders EVER!

You can try any or all of these things and use what works for you to stay present and enjoy life here on Mother Earth. That is why we are here after all.

The Attraction Force of FEAR

More and more people are telling me they want to connect with Spirit and in the same moment asking me if connecting with Guides is ‘safe’. People are telling me they are concerned about alien invasions, demonic possession, entity attachments and the like. There is a lot of bad information about these topics. There is an extra ordinary amount of fear running around about the the unseen having the power to control people with a sinister and evil design.

The power of some unseen force is not in the entity to fear – the attraction force of the fear itself is what keeps us hypnotized and what we should truly be aware of. We are naturally attracted to fear. Our ego loves it. Fear creates drama. It keeps us occupied. It takes a lot of energy and attention. Why do we love horror movies, scary stories and urban myths? Our ego can stay in control over our actions so easily if we are in fear. If we fear ‘others’ then Spirit, Spirit Guides even our own higher spiritual aspect will not be able to communicate with us. The ego loves that. If we allow our higher consciousness to be be our true guide then our ego no longer controls our actions and loses it’s power. And we have been so powerless against our ego for so long that allowing Spirit to guide us seems the scariest, and most difficult thing of all.

Being empowered and recognizing that when we fear something it is an illusion is the greatest task any spiritual seeker has to accomplish. But how can we do this? How can we let go of the drama we love? How can we believe that no one, no thing, no entity, no global crisis, alien invasion, demonic possession or world order has any power over us? We have been believing all our lives that there is something, always, to fear. We are invested in fear emotionally, financially, mentally and even spiritually. We are told to fear God, poverty, big government, corporations and demons.

Take a moment to imagine that all of those things have no power over you. Take a moment to accept that even God cannot control your actions. Your actions, your thoughts, your perceptions are entirely your own. There is no power greater than your will. How does that feel? Does it feel even scarier than allowing the outside forces to have influence over you? Would you rather have something to fear? If not you are the exception.

Spirit cannot guide us when our ego is in the driver seat. It is as simple as that. And ego uses fear to remain in control. Fear must be in place for us to be manipulated and controlled. Ego is over-powered in our consciousness. Ego’s tool for control is fear. A healthy use of ego is as an identifying factor. Ego is a gift that helps us to recognize how we fit in in the scheme of things. It helps us know who we are. Yet if we allow ego to overrun our life experience through its power hungry system of fear then we become a slave to it. And we cannot be a slave to ego and serve Spirit. It is impossible. Yet things that make us fearful have an attraction force that is almost irresistible. Almost irresistible.

The simplest way to begin your journey to serve Spirit and be free from fear is to recognize when something arouses fear in you. Imaging your worst fear and taking a moment to greet it. Acknowledge its existence. Thank it for teaching you about yourself. Ask yourself how this fear has served you. How has it benefited you by holding on to it? Then dismiss your fear with gratitude. Then ask your guides to help you be in service to the highest good, ask them to help you let go of your fear to find your faith and ultimately your freedom. Do this as often as necessary and you will find that each day will be an awakening to the Divine.

Freedom opens the pathway to all creation, all power and Love. Fear negates all creation, all power and Love.

May you find the freedom that is your birthright.

Be In Peace,
