Something occurred last night that is a rarity for me. I had nightmares. Not just one. I’d get out of one only to find myself in a different one.

I was aware that my body was resting and that I was having nightmares. Even with this awareness, the nightmares continued. But, more on this later.

Various Guides Available to Us

Most view guides as someone on the other side who aids us on our Earth journey. It can be guardian angels, angels, guides (aka team or team members), loved ones, etc.

But it can also be a human, who is still living, who can act as a guide. It can be someone you consciously know, or not.


Though in the past this was not commonly discussed, a person bi-locating can be seen, and physically interact, at two places at the same time. One place could be work or home (somewhere where the person can be on auto-pilot); the second place would be with someone in distress. And yes, it can and does happen…it’s not just a legend or myth.

Passing Through or the Inadvertent Guide

We each can be a physical guide to another physical person, whether we know them or not, even if it’s inadvertent and/or only in passing.

A brief conversation in the store while you are perusing the items on the shelves.

A stranger walks up and beings talking about their troubles. Then they may get embarrassed, apologize and hurry away. You usually don’t have to verbally say anything to them, or say very little.

In that brief exchange – while you are mentally scratching your head, trying to figure out why that person was venting their woes at you – please realize that your higher self was more than likely aiding them during their venting.

An inadvertent guide could be someone at the right place at the right time to aid you – or you to aid them.

What you are doing on a spiritual level could be as simple as your higher self works to adjust their energy. You may never know for sure, but your higher self does help others.

A warm smile, kind word, or a kind gesture can change – or even save – a life.


Lucid dreamers are sometimes referred to as Dreamwalkers. Lucid dreamers are aware they are dreaming, and oftentimes can manipulate the dream.

Dreamwalkers can enter other people’s dream and aid or assist them. Dreamwalkers are not always aware of being in another person’s dream, but the dreamer is usually aware of them being there.

How Does Any of Type of Guide Know When to Show Up?

Whether the guide – in any form – remembers what they assisted with or not, it began with a call.

Any person in distress – in dream or awake – has the right to ask for help. When they do this, a call goes out.

A person or being who resonates with that call (one who has the abilities needed and hears the call) will respond.

Not All Dreams are the Same

Some dreams are not the subconscious working things out. Some dreams are really astral, or out-of-body experiences that are being represented as dreams to the conscious mind. This is the mind’s way of trying to make third dimensional sense of the experience, and present it to the conscious mind in an acceptable third dimensional way.

In other words, they are out of body work or experiences.

It’s Not Always About the Dreams

Okay, back to the nightmares.

I had three people – friends – pop in to aid me last night. Each friend helped bring an end to a nightmare.

The first one came — in the first nightmare – as a soothing, calming energy; a gentle breeze that swept around me, taking chaos and leaving peace, nurturing, and calm Mother Earth energy.

The second nightmare brought another person. This one was tall and strong; letting me know she was there to help me kick butt if needed – and laugh and have fun while we’re doing it.

The third was a person, I believe, I hadn’t seen in well over a year. A no nonsense energy with gentle support.

I know the nightmares themselves were not the experience message (though they were purging some really old stuck energies).

This experience excited me because I got to see some friends in their Dreamwalker state, and was happy they aided me. This was a treat, and a blessing, for me.

Thank you all for that.

In Closing

Remember that we can have a human as a guide to help us in our awake or dream experiences.

And that means you can be a guide and/or Dreamwalker for another in need.
