There are several queries on whether it is important to have a spiritual teacher. Most things have two sides and on this one also it depends on if it is a good choice.
You should remember that a teacher was also on the path that you are using right now but is ahead of you in some ways. This is because they know the roadblocks and pitfalls and should help in having the path less painful and easier.
An issue can present itself different once it is replicated to you by a teacher. This will include self-honesty that is not easy to come by on the first sessions of a spiritual path. We are always in denial and nobody wants to go through pain despite the fact that we are subconsciously doing it. Therefore a teacher is more responsive and is able to scrutinize the egoic and mental approaches that we are keen to justify as well as defend.
From the safe and supportive atmosphere that is prepared by a spiritual teacher offers one is able to open up in the mind and heart. A professional spiritual teacher does not apply anything that has been previously used against a person which can hurt them, and does not use information to manipulate with information. This is similar to the patient doctor relationship where what is for the treatment room stays there.
Take care not to rely on the spiritual teacher to an extent that you feel left alone if he is not with you. If that occurs, it is a sign of self inadequacy. The saying that says if a door is opened for you by teacher you should be able to go in alone.
