Guides, although serving a similar purpose as Spirit Guides are really
different. Spirit Guides are souls that are more or less dedicated to
you for this one lifetime. They are souls whose "age" is approximately
the same as your own. Age is not really a good term to use here,
perhaps degree of soul evolution would be a much better term.
Regardless of how you wish to define it, they are friends of yours in
the Spirit Realm.
Now why have you come to Earth in a
physical lifetime in the first place? Let us assume that you are a
young soul (you are not, else you would not be reading this), you would
have come here to learn certain lessons, and to grow. You would have a
desire for your soul or spirit to evolve to a higher level. So you
would want some plan to follow in order to learn the lessons that you
needed to learn at this time. The main problem that you would be faced
with is that you would not really know what those lessons were, or how
to go about learning them. This is where the Soul Guide comes in. This
is an "older" more evolved soul that has been through many more
lifetimes than you and your spirit guides have been through. And as
result has learned very much more.
Your soul guide will
be working with a group of souls, one of which you are. Some of your
guides may also be his/her students. And your soul guide will work with
you over a great many lives whereas your spirit guides will likely only
be working with you for the one lifetime.
assume that you have been feeling the urge to come into the physical
and that your soul guide agrees with you that it is time. You and your
soul guide will get together and make a general plan of what you need
to learn during the coming lifetime. You will plan the general
circumstances of your birth and the family that you will be brought up
in, even so far as choosing your parents. And if you are an older soul,
you may be assigned a job or task to perform while you are here.
you have lived your life, and have made your transition back into the
Spirit Realm, and have moved back into the light, you may be given a
period of rest, but in time you will have to examine the life that you
have just finished. Until you as a spirit reach the level of maturity
or evolution that you are able to do this without help, your Soul Guide
will help with that task. You will look to see which lessons that you
successfully learned, and which ones that you failed to learn. If you
had a task or job to perform, you will also examine your efforts on
that to see how successful that you were in that.
your Soul Guide is there basically to help you to grow, from lifetime
to lifetime. Now, are you ready for this? Just as you belong to a group
of souls that is working together, so does your Soul Guide belong to a
group of souls, older and more evolved than yours. And just as you have
a Soul Guide to help you evolve and grow, your Soul Guide has an even
older more evolved Soul Guide to help him/her.
