How Should A Seeker Find A Guide?

It seems clear that those who for whatever reason find themselves upon the path of earnest searching for truth, must at some stage find a guide or "master" to help them along the path and to ensure that they remain safe as they progress.
This is perhaps quite evident in the world of Alchemy.
How then should a seeker approach this problem?
He/She must surely be wary that esoteric knowledge can be wielded by those serving Good and those serving Evil. It would be easy to be mislead and steered towards the latter.

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Traditionally: when the seeker is ready the Master will appear.

In Freemasonry there are 3 stages of preparation.

The EA is required to establish right relationship with others and within himself.

This being substantially established the EA is ready for the work of the FC - the hidden mysteries of nature and science. Nature will not admit the unworthy, but the EA having established right relationships is seen by Nature as constructive rather than destructive.

Having made suitable progress with the hidden mysteries of nature and science, the FC is ready to be active in the temple that extends from E to W and N to S and from the center of the Earth to the Heavens. In this vast, structured and alive space the MM works rhythmically to cultivate the lesser lives and harmonize them with the greater lives.

This harmonization allows cosmic patterns to manifest within the planetary temple.
