Spirit guides, guardian spirits – call them what you will. I call them ‘my dudes’.
A few psychics I’ve been to have told me that I have a number of guides with me. In the early days I took that with a grain of salt. But since developing my own skills I’ve been able to meet them on the odd occasion.
During a course on ‘Channelling’, I learnt some great ways to lift my vibrations and open up to receive messages. Our level of existence is so dense that if you want to communicate with them, it helps for us to meet them half way. The good news is that there are definite steps one can do to help with that.
But for now let me tell you about my groupies.
Who are they?
At this point I don’t know how many I actually have. I believe there are at least 5 spirit guides. The following is a break down of the ones I’m currently aware of and cover a span of almost 20 years in getting to meet them.
Since starting this path I’ve met a number of them and have been fortunate enough to learn their names and occasionally see them. I’ve been told that we all have at least one guide. Not sure what determines how many we have. For me – I have a few guides and each has stepped forward to have a greater presence in my life at particular points/stages. As far as I can tell, each is responsible for an aspect of my life in some way. This means that one will step back as we move into a new phase to allow another to come through who is better suited to guide me through that next stage of life.
The first spirit guide/spirit dude I was introduced to was Pomee – an old Native American Chief. He reminds me a lot of my grandfather. Stern but friendly – piercing eyes. I’ve met him many times in meditations. He used to be a large part of my life but has taken a step back in the last few years to allow the others to come through. Regardless – he is my constant rock. I’ve shared many special moments with him in my meditations.
I particularly remember an instance where he was basically telling me that he was stepping back. In that meditation we shared a smoking pipe – I felt deeply honoured that he would share one with me. Then at the end he actually gave me the pipe and although he didn’t say anything I knew it was his way of saying that he was taking a back seat for while. I remember opening my eyes and tears just streaming down my face. That was about 3 years ago and since then I’ve definitely noticed he’s not around as much. He still pops in from time to time which is nice.
I first met Ellie when trying to get in touch with Pomee. But instead of Pomee showing up, I had a cloud of blue sparkles appear. The cloud consisted of about 20-30 loosely grouped blueish sparkles. So incredibly beautiful! And they hung around for a good 5 minutes.
It was only much later I found out that the blue sparkles were ‘Ellie’. Since then I’ve learnt that she is an elemental (of the fairie kind) and appears either as blue sparkles or as a purple wispy thing. In her purple state she looks like purple ink dropped into a glass of water – very flowly and impacted by air currents. Before meeting/knowing about Ellie – I did not believe in fairies. When a psychic first told me about her and suggested I learn about them I was highly suspicious. But in the years since I’ve learnt a lot about elementals and have interacted with her and others. More about elementals in another post though.
Animal spirit guide
Then I met my animal spirit guide who happens to be a spider. Still not sure of her name although I’ve recently had an amazing interaction with her which I’ll post at a later date. The irony here is that I’m quite scared of spiders so when she first appeared to me I was surprised and a little freaked out.
For now I’m assuming this being is my higher self…as I don’t know what she is. Meeting her was a little odd because on the one hand, she’s very different to me – a lot taller, bigger oval eyes, long yellow hair, statuesque – but she also has a deep familiarity. I knew who she was from the eyes. The shape of them might of been different but there was something about her pupils that I instantly recognised as being part of me.
Divine Miss M
Devine Miss M is a lady who dresses in black. Her name as she spelt it out to me is something like Mestjaja but I can’t pronounce it so I call her Devine Miss M. I’ve not yet seen her face – I only ever see her in a black cowl. She’s more elderly judging by her posture and hands and I get the feeling she’ll be my guide later in life. She seems to be standing in the wings so to speak at the moment. A bit like a no non-sense granny.
And more recently – since I’ve become a Reiki master and teacher, I now have a Reiki Spirit Guide along for the ride. He goes by the name of Master Hiroshi or Master Horushu….I can’t remember. I met clearly with him during my reiki master initiation and he told me his name but I was off the planet with all the energies around at that time that I can’t quite remember…I’m sure I’ll get it right one day.
What do Spirit Guides want?
Just to help. But I first must ask for their help and then have the patience to receive it at the right time. [Which I’m still learning to do.]
The relationship I have with my Spirit Guides is fairly informal. No mystical reverence on my part that’s for sure. That’s not to say that I don’t feel honoured to have them in my life and thankful for their guidance. And respectful – I have a lot of respect for them. But mainly I honour the ‘spark of god/life/universe’ within them as it is within all of us.
They may be more evolved than we are but they are also here to help us. And I know I can count on them.
