Every soul experiencing a physical incarnation is in constant—although subconscious—contact with their spirit guides: spiritual teachers offering guidance, knowledge, and wisdom. In this book, world-renowned spiritual medium James Van Praagh teaches readers the benefits and rewards of having a conscious relationship with their guides. The work includes exercises and meditations (along with a description of the various guides who help us on this earthly adventure), to enrich and assist readers during their physical journey.
