My brother and his spirit guide
My brother had a supernatural gift in that he could see spirits of people and his pet animals that had one time lived on earth. This was fascinating for him and he along with others became a ghost detective with one of the purposes was to film and prove the existence of ghosts and spirits to others.
He had his own spirit guide that was a Native American, who used to guide and assist my brother in life and I hope they are still connected somehow now my brother is dead. I have looked below for some simple perspectives of a spirit guide.
According to theosophical doctrine, spirit guides are not always of human descent. Some spirit guides live as energy, in the cosmic realm, or as light beings, which are very high level spirit guides. Some spirit guides are persons who have lived many former lifetimes, paid their karmic debts, and advanced beyond a need to reincarnate. Many devotees believe that spirit guides are chosen on “the other side” by human beings who are about to incarnate and wish assistance.
Some early modern Spiritualists did not favor the idea of spirit guides. Spiritualist author and medium E.W. Wallis, writing in A Guide to Mediumship and Psychic Unfoldment, expressed the opinion that the notion of spirit guides is disempowering and disrespectful to both spirits and living people. Although he does not deny that seeking people may be helped by spirits here and there, he decries the idea that said spirits are appointed or assigned to do nothing but help the living. He advises would-be mediums to steer clear of the notion that they are being “guided” unless they have demonstrable proof that such is the case.
My Spirit Guide?
I once had a dream (about 10 years or more ago) which I found awesome. The dream of a giant polar bear and I was staring at it in fascination and it was staring right back at me. I was fascinated and curious about it and it had what I thought were the same feelings about me. We were both looking at each other as if to say “what are you doing here?”
At the time I was particularly interested in spirit guides and had a feeling that it was my spirit guide come to say hello to me. It feels on a basic level kind of right. I am a loner, there are many layers and secrets I keep between me and God and so to see an animal that is in its environment a loner too I real felt a stong connection. With the connection to a changing or dying landscape with my environmental concerns and passions that also felt right.
