Do Spirit Guides Lie?

Image - Spirit Liar "Is it true that spirit guides often lie to you?" Virginia asks. "I just read in an article on another psychic's website that she does not ask her clients' guides for information when she does readings for them because they often lie. Do you think this is true? And if they do lie, why would they?"

No, I do not think that is true. I disagree.

All intuitives are people and we have our own subjective experiences and opinions, which clearly can differ greatly. I can't say how the psychic you speak of might have arrived at such a conclusion, but it does not make sense to me.

It's simple logic or semantics:

By definition, a spirit entity who lies is not a "guide."

That would be a complete contradiction to the entire relationship.

Can spirits generally lie to you? Yes, I'm sure they can; you can potentially contact and communicate with all kinds of random spirits -- that doesn't make them guides.

Ghosts are spirits, not spirit guides. This is why we constantly warn against using Ouija boards. A spirit entity pretending to be a guide … is not a guide.

Spirit guides might sometimes be vague, give an answer that is hard to decipher, or they may be unable to properly communicate a specific concept … but intentionally lie?


I have never encountered that.
