First post… and a discussion on Spirit Guides!

So it’s my first blog post! I’m not really sure of what I’m doing yet but I guess I’ll learn along the way. If you’re reading this thanks for stopping by! Feel free to add to the discussion.

Recently I was having a discussion with a friend on the topic of reincarnation. I made the comment that I’d love to have the chance to be a spirit guide when I return back home to the other side. Who knows what our priorities and interests really are when we’re Home, but I can think of several areas of work I’d like to focus on when I return. One of those things would be to help researchers studying the paranormal/life on the other side from Earth. But, being a spirit guide would be pretty darn cool too I think (and a lot of work I hear). Then yesterday I was reading a Sylvia Browne book and she says that chances are at one time or another before this reincarnation we’ve all been a spirit guide.

In a channeling class that I took with Marilyn Kastner Painter (you can find her on my links page) I discovered that my guide’s name was Merlin. I’m not real clear on what the details of our meeting were or if that is really my guide’s name… but it came from somewhere and you’re just supposed to go with it. 🙂 I at least felt the presence of someone special being with me.

Being a spirit guide must be a pretty big deal and there has to be a lot of trust involved. Many believe that a spirit guide could be a “soul mate” from a previous life. That’s also interesting to think about.

It was probably 6 or 7 years ago when I first learned about spirit guides. I had no clue. I can’t imagine NOT knowing about spirit guides now. I talk to mine all the time. If you’re new to the concept of spirit guides, there are many places online with information. You can also check out spirit guides on Wikipedia.

Thoughts? Anyone have a good relationship with their spirit guide?

    Haha if you think Merlin is funny – my spirit guides name is…(drumroll please)…… Bill. Yep. Just Bill. Allegedly, that is not his real name, just something he is going by for the moment. I liken it to my philosophy TA in college. His name was Soonpil Choi – “Just call me Phil.”

    As it turns out, I do think Bill was a soulmate of mine from a previous incarnation. So – I have a dead boyfriend named Bill. Can I officially start calling myself Sookie Stackhouse now?
