you may be looking for principios which may be used as guidelines...

ex: Nunca robaría, va contra mis principios. - I would never steal, it goes against my principles

I don't think principles (note spelling) can be used to mean guidelines. Here are its definitions.

  1. A basic truth, law, or assumption: the principles of democracy.
  2. a. A rule or standard, especially of good behavior: a man of principle.
    b. The collectivity of moral or ethical standards or judgments: a decision based on principle rather than expediency.
  3. A fixed or predetermined policy or mode of action.
  4. A basic or essential quality or element determining intrinsic nature or characteristic behavior: the principle of self-preservation.
  5. A rule or law concerning the functioning of natural phenomena or mechanical processes: the principle of jet propulsion.
  6. Chemistry One of the elements that compose a substance, especially one that gives some special quality or effect.
  7. A basic source. See Usage Note at principal.

Give us the word in a sentence, and we can translate it for you.
