They can and do intervene only when there is a need to modify certain experiences to make them bearable so that we can make it through life without failing completely to reach our goals.
If you think you have never received any help from your spirit guide, question is: Are you absolutely sure? Our guides, along with other cosmic forces, have infinite but often unobvious ways of delivering assistance, knowledge, and information to us.
For example, say youíve spent time and effort planning a trip but because of a feeling of unease, or because something unexpectedly comes up that interferes with your plan, or for no reason that is apparent to you, you cancel it. Because you did not take trip, it is easy to not even consider what might have happened had you taken it. It is quite possible that something was at work making sure trip never took place Ė for your own life and safety. That something could well be your spirit guide.
How about that sudden idea or surge of inspiration that led you to solution for a problem? Yes, idea or inspiration came to you, but where did it come from? As I stated earlier, cosmic forces, including your guide, have infinite ways of transmitting information.
A thought may have come to you, but it may have originated someplace else. In case of finding an answer to a problem, it is most likely that your guide transmitted some information that guided you to a solution. If you petitioned or prayed for help, your guide may have been consulted or asked to respond.
If you petitioned for help using techniques discussed in my book Seeds of Luck: The ABCs of Creating Your Heartís Desires, your guide may have been one of recipients of petition since it was not directed to a particular entity or deity. Again, once our problems are solved, it is easy to take solutions for granted and not think about their source.
Perhaps you remember a time you were distracted and pulled in a certain direction only to discover later that had you not been distracted and led away, you would have been exposed to danger.
