The ECK Spiritual Guides can seem to simply appear out of the mists of time to help any Soul seeking love, truth, and the awareness of God. They come by day, by night, at times of great trouble or need, or in disguise to bring comfort to an old friend—perhaps someone like you.

Some have been historical figures, but most have worked silently or with small groups. They are recognized by many people today, sometimes as a childhood friend or a guide from a past life.
