I’m a day early with this, but I’m on a roll this morning…

I would like to be able to communicate with my guiding spirits, how do I do that? can you guide me? and can I request to have new guiding spirits instead of the ones now because I feel that they are not doing their job? how do I do that too? I feel that I need lots of guidance in this life, that my life is going in circles and today I asked God to replace my guides with better ones that can guide me and help me be a better person and to be successful in this life. I felt that I had the wrong guides all these years. can you help please?? thanks and may the Divine Light be with you.

Okay, this response is totally not going to win me any popularity points, but “The Peanut Gallery” had quite a few things to say after reading this one. I’m going to try to respond to the questions in the order they appear above, but I may go off in another direction once I get started. That being said, this is an example of a response that is probably not what you want to hear, but rather what you need to hear.

As for the question about how do you communicate with your guiding spirits, honey, you just did – loud and clear! If it weren’t for the fact that they’re on a higher energy plane, they would probably be extremely pissed off right about now.

As for asking whether you can request new guiding spirits because you think the ones you have aren’t doing their job – things don’t work like some giant office temporary agency in the sky, you know. You can’t hire and fire spirit guides at will. Besides, is it at all possible that it’s not a matter of them not doing their job, but one of you not doing yours??? It is a two-way street, you know. Just speaking from my own past personal experiences, most, if not all, of the screwups in my life could in all likelihood have been avoided for the most part if I had listened to and heeded the advice of my guides, instead of ignoring them and doing whatever it was I damn well pleased. (Like that time I ignored them and stayed at the job from hell, and ended up in the hospital not once, but twice, and then ended up getting fired anyway.)

So, today you asked God for new and “better” guides. It’s a really good thing that guides take all this stuff pretty much in stride and aren’t easily offended. Otherwise, you might find yourself with a huge red target painted on your back in indelible ethereal ink for that next lightning bolt to strike. Nice way to thank them for watching over you all these years and keeping you out of the really nasty stuff. You say you want guides who will guide you to be a better person and to be successful in this life, but you’re showing (at least in this e-mail) a complete and total lack of gratitude and appreciation for the guides who’ve been helping you all along. If you haven’t listened to them, what good do you think not listening to different guides will do?

As for you feeling that you’ve had the wrong guides all these years – do you really think God made a mistake when he gave them to you??? If so, all I can say is “Wow!” I’m sorry, but I cannot help you with this, other than to suggest you take a good long look at your own part in things and how that is what may be what’s keeping you going around in circles, and not your guides. A little humility, gratitude and appreciation of their wisdom might be a good place to start.
