Here’s the truth about Spirit Guides: Connecting to them is harder than the gurus make out. They want to tell you you’re just one course/upgrade/activation/session away from meeting them. I wish that were true.
Here’s another truth about Spirit Guides: I have no clue who my guides are, let alone their names, or fashionable pedigree and I’ve been at this a while now.
Don’t fall into the gaslighting trap of feeling inferior because you haven’t met them yet, in fact, consider the idea that you’ve already met!
Perhaps when you both were spirit, perhaps when really young before you were told off for make believe or having invisible friends. Our modern culture tends to emphasize the messenger over the message – which means we pay more attention to the who rather than the what.
Spirit guides are way less concerned with their individual identity as they’re working actively to blend with the greater. They are often very humble and never share their names, which is why many great mediums in the past named their guides, not the other way around.
Not knowing who your spirit guides are is OK.
By refocusing on the message rather than the messenger, their presence can be felt and their influence acted on because we know what to do when they are around. Pay attention!
How much ego could be attached to having a guide with a grand name who had a grand heritage that was hard to actually prove anyway? One of our main jobs as psychics, energy workers and mediums is to stay real. To have our feet in touch with the earth so as to be of service to others. And that means keeping the ego firmly checked.
It’s tempting to rush into a guided meditation to meet a wise old person and receive a spiritual bauble and adopt them as a spirit guide.
Guided meditations to meet your spirit guide can be comforting but lack evidence. The experience of the guide does not last and has less to do with a genuine connection than with the imagination stepping in to fill in the gaps our superconscious mind hasn’t quite reached.
Good ol ‘conscious mind! We love it in day to day events, but when it comes to connecting with Spirit (and that’s mediumship, btw,) it’s one the things we train hard to let interfere. Here’s an interview I gave about Spirit Guides and what kinds there are:
