Many of us in the Pagan and Wiccan community acknowledge the presence of spirit guides -- some of us have them, and those who don't have one generally know someone who does. However, there are some differing opinions on what exactly the purpose of a spirit guide is. If you don't have a spirit guide, how exactly do you find one? More importantly, if you do have one, how do you know it's really got your best interests at heart?
Be sure to read the section on hints that your spirit guide may not be a spirit guide at all.
