It’s about to get a little controversial up in here. There is a huge difference of opinion when it comes to this topic and I really wanted to tackle it and let you decide for yourself.
So the question is “Can Spirit Guides Be Negative?” I’m very inclined to say that they can. Here is what I know for sure about our Universe: we operate from free will and choice. I’m convinced that we are the powerful creators of our own experience and if we engage in negativity and we choose to hire not-so-evolved-beings onto our spiritual team, we have the freedom and power to do so. I don’t think there is a force out there that will say “Nope, you can’t do that…”—I just don’t buy into that.
The most popular argument to this is that our “Higher Self” hires members of our Spirit Guide team. That might be true, but I would bet that our conscious and subconscious aspects have the power as well. I know from doing Soul Clearing work that our subconscious is very powerful and capable of a lot of things.
There are a lot of people who disagree with me here. There are those who feel that Spirit Guides are forces of good, there are those who believe they are divine beings, and there are those who believe they are just astral-level souls of varying vibration rates. They might all be right. The opinions on this topic are far and wide. But what I believe is that we are the ones in charge and whatever we ask and set our intentions toward fully—we will receive back.
There are a lot of negative forces in our world—these forces are able to have incredible influence on others and I have to believe that if there are forces of light at work assisting us, there must be forces of darkness as well. It’s the Law of Polarity, everything has an opposite.
When I learned to do Akashic Record Readings and Clearings, I was taught to first check whether the client’s Spirit Guide Team was positive—working in their highest good. I still check for this in a reading, but I have to say that after working with several hundred clients, it’s very rare for someone to present with negative Spirit Guides—although it does happen once in a while. Most of my clients are light workers, so if a negative guide does show up, it’s usually one they hired at a time in their life where they felt less empowered and wanted to use their power over other people. In my experience the primary guide, which follows them from lifetime to lifetime, has never shown as negative.
Sometimes, the client’s guides are not negative at all—they just have a lower vibration rate than them. Have you ever been in a situation where you had a set of friends that you outgrown, but you still stuck with them for one reason or another? Guides can sometimes be the same way. Eventually, you will outgrow them and you’ll move onto new teachers—but we can hold onto that energy for years until we’re ready to move on.
When I took my Re Hu Tek training with Anita Burns, she had an interesting take on the subject. We were taught to check for spirits that pretended to be guides. I believe she called them “false guides”. These are spirits that present themselves as guides, but are not. I think we might be talking about the same thing here. After all, Spirit Guides are here, by definition, to serve our highest path and purpose—so if a guide is negative, they’re not really a guide in the first place. Still, interference happens and it’s a block to accessing Truth.
Now I’d love to hear from you. What’s your opinion on the subject? What has been your experience? Leave a comment below!
