Everyone comes to planet earth with a team of spiritual guides or helpers to back them with their life purpose. These are souls that have accomplished everything you are involved in one way or another and have mastered it in themselves. This is why you chose them Before you were born, you and your guardian angels started to send energy to your physical body in the womb to help it grow and mature into a normal human being.
This is why there is always a beautiful “aura” around pregnant women a few months before they give birth. The silver cord starts to attach itself a few weeks before birth. If everyone understood what happens spiritually as a soul moves into this school, then there would not be the moral issues created around the birthprocess. Of course, if you destroy the physical body before it has a chance to come in to do its work, then the soul has to find another avenue or wait until a later time to accomplish its purpose.
At the same time, since our true nature is that we are a soul and not a physical body, it is impossible to keep a soul from entering the planet one way or another. There are many souls that have to wait for a long time to be able to come back in. Most people are taught that they have at least one guardian angel or spiritual guide. For people who came with a life purpose to accomplish more in the physical realm, there is not a great need for more than one or two guides to help them. These are the people who only need an inspiration to help put great theories together.
For people who came to work with people, however, it is not unusual to bring three or more spiritual helpers with them. It is important to understand how to communicate with people from all walks of life. Communication is the key to living a successful life. If you can’t communicate with yourself, it is invariably more difficult to communicate with others.
There is a Biblical passage that emphasizes this inner communication: If a man have an angel to whom one would listen once in a thousand times, the angel would show him the way of uprightness.
If a person comes from a more traditional or religious belief system, he or she will usually refer to this divine inspiration as “angels” or “the HolySpirit.” If someone has studied metaphysics or is involved with Eastern philosophy, he or she is more likely to call them “guides.” Whatever you call them, they are one and the same. There are not ten million different systems in the Cosmos, there is only one. Unfortunately, there are ten million different names for the same experience or phenomena. This is why there is so much confusion or competition on planet earth.
Actually, the word “angel” comes from the Hebrew word “mal’akh,” meaning “messenger.” The original term came from the Persian (angeros) and the Greek (angelos) which means “courier.” All of these names refer to a celestial spirit who gives us divine guidance from the universe. Since most of ancient culture is based on experience and not scientific theories, these people knew they received inspiration from something apart from themselves.
Your spiritual helpers or guides are not people you have known during your lifetime.. They are souls who have learned every lesson there is to learn on planet earth and they are there to help you to get to their level of awareness. They are totally benevolent. This is what makes a “high soul." Just because an individual is an “old soul” doesn’t mean that they have “graduated” from the earth plane. It takes someone who has mastered their experience on planet earth to help someone else really understand who they are and where they are going in life. They needed to have a symbol to communicate to the masses about this inspiration.
There is a bird that never starts to fly until it knows where it is going. This is the dove. When they wanted to symbolize the crystal-clear message from these helpers, they decided to put wings on the body of a child. This is where the image of the cherub was born. It can also be traced back to the original Greek and Roman mythology of “Eros” and “Cupid” - both symbols of divine love and inspiration.
Of course, our guardian angels do not really have wings. This is the conception of the original artists. The Bible is full of symbols and parables. This is so that everyone can relate to it and be able to receive inspiration at their level of consciousness. If we take all of the religious writings that have become available to us throughout the ages literally, we miss the point or essence of what the author was telling us. Because of the many translations through history, sometimes even a word or phrase canchange the meaning of an entire concept.
People think that they cannot talk to their guides or angels, but the opposite is true. You are always receiving inspiration from your spiritual guidance. As a matter of fact, it is not unusual for you to pick up 80 to 90 hunches or feelings a day from them When your angels or guides come around you, they give you a surge of energy throughout your nervous system. Some people call these “chills or goose bumps.” In Hawaii, the native people call it “chicken skin.”
Whatever you call it, it means that your angels are close to you and want to communicate with you. Sometimes they want to tell you something that will help you accomplish your life purpose. At other times, it is to warn you not to movein a certain direction. You have the ability to communicate with them directly.
Since they are energy – and you are energy, there are practical techniques which enable you to develop a two-way communication. They will always be with you no matter what. Even if you decide to go off on a different path than what you originally planned, they will always protect and guide you. They will never put you in situations that you cannot cope with. Even if you end up very confused, they never judge or tell you what todo.
They have ultimate patience because they have been through it. Once you realize that you have gone down an avenue that may not be healthy for you spiritually, then your spiritual guidance can assist you more and you will feel closer to them. Have you ever had the experience where you felt that you were being guided or that you said something that you did not know you knew? This is when your spiritual guides are really working closely with you to help yourself and the people around you. Consider them a team, a spiritual Board of Directors of your life, so that you do not put them higher or in greater esteem than you have for yourself.
Remember, they are no different from you. They are simply more organized spiritually and they do not need to return to this school to learn more lessons. They have already mastered everything here. Your life purpose is not to build great buildings or find the cure to the great diseases that are plaguing mankind. These are the by products of our purpose for being here.
Your real purpose is the spiritual message that you came to share with people everyday. Of course, you have to do it for yourself first. Some people think that “someday” they will achieve their purpose in life. Guess what? You have been doing it your entire life! You are an example of how you live your life.
Have you ever wondered why certain people are attracted to you and maybe not to others? This is because they came to learn something from you. We all learn from each other, but sometimes this feeling or affinity is very strong. Believe it or not, it is true that when we get impatient with certain people it is because they have not quite learned what they need to learn from us yet. Isn’t that why it is important to be patient with others around uswhile they are searching for their niche?
We have all the help we need to be successful in life. You do not need to be rich to be happy, although it is also important not to deny yourself as well. Many people think that by acquiring many possessions that this will make them happy. There is a big difference between being comfortable and being happy. Your spiritual guidance will help you acquire and achieve whatever you need to accomplish your life purpose. You did not come here to deny your needs or your wants.
The key is to enjoy everything you have and not let anything keep you tied down to the point where you never do what you came to do. If you are depressed, it means that you do not have personal direction. You may feel that others control your destiny. Only when you realize that no one can keep you from accomplishing what is right and good in your life, will you earn back the enthusiasm that is so important.
Your spiritual helpers cannot do anything for you. You have to do it for yourself! This is why some people pass on without fulfilling their purpose. They may feel that it was up to someone else to tell them what to do. They end up confused. Only by setting your own personal direction, can your spiritual guides help and back you to achieve your life dreams.
