I would like to explore the possibility of spirit guides in relation to past life connections and people we have been with before. For example, in the mid 1980's I had experiences with a black woman in spirit who was a slave with me in the mid 1880's. Her name was Sarah and she helped me through a lot of traumatic experiences at the time. She had a heavy southern accent, wore torn and tattered clothes and spoke very broken and poor English. She was however, a loving a compassionate soul. I was aware of her about five years before I was aware of my past life with her. I am curious if members have had similar experiences.
