why your spirit guide isnt famous

Your spirit guide isn’t famous

I get sad when beautiful people doubt the presence of their spirit guide because they are’t special or famous enough.

The truth is, 99% of everyone’s guides aren’t lofty/ famous/accomplished. Most of them are very ordinary people who have worked hard on their spiritual development, either in their lifetime or in the Spirit World.

One of the most famous mediums had a Cockney newspaper boy as a guide. Mickey’s cheerful manner was invaluable in bringing messages through for those who came for sessions. You can hear his actual voice here:

Another revered and respected medium, Gordon Higginson, had a little girl and an oriental gentleman he christened Choo Chow.

They had very simple names because Gordon met them as a child. The little girl spirit guide played echo games with him, so she became “Cuckoo”. Listen to Gordon bringing through his guides here.

In each case, the medium named the guide, not the other way round.

There are many other examples of guides either giving a name to be known by or accepting a name given to them. It suggests the guides aren’t as attached to names and identities as we are, and makes you wonder at all the readings designed to give Guide names. Are they just another kind of vanity metric?

Recognise guides by their energy.

Thats a whole lot more confirmation than seeing them, or depending on a name. In the world of psychic development, we learn to trust our feelings first, over images we see. Unless we are really observant, our mind loves to create images for us. It’s what it does, so the old saying ‘seeing is believing’ does not really support us here.

Spirit guide energy feels different than a loved one in Spirit

A guide’s energy feels strong, and it’s easy to confuse since they’ve also been with you since before you were born, so they feel like family in a way.

A guide’s presence may not be visual. But it can 100% be sensed. Much stronger than the presence of a loved one, which could be quite faint.

Trust the feel. Even the Bible talks about it when they say, “By their fruits, you will know them,” which could be interpreted as recognising their energy or vibe.

Your spirit guide isn’t famous

One of the first things to go when we reach the next world is our ego. After a while in the spirit world, we lose all desire of fame or accolades because the real work is helping. Helping ourselves, and helping others. Why do you think spirit guides come to hang out with us? That a lot of selfless services right there.

How to know your Spirit guide

Set aside time to get to know them, and the best way is meditation. And I’m not talking about the cheesy, “meet your guides” ones that are everywhere.

Not blaming the meditation, it’s that often our human mind wants an experience so much, the mind can provide one.

Meditation is like picking up the phone to the unseen realms. Send out an invitation for them to come close, then make your energy as receptive as possible. Notice when you feel a presence, if the air shifts or the atmosphere changes.

Don’t worry, you will feel it!

Spirit guides feel really strong and super loving. The second way to know them is by the information they give.

Whether or not the guide is famous doesn’t really matter, compared with the information they give and how it uplifts and inspires your life.

Semi fictional story about me

In 1994, I had a midlife crisis, got a boob job and moved to Byron Bay.

Quickly realized there was nothing there but more boob jobs and white furniture, so I escaped faux-spiritual beach culture, went to Peru, and experimented with DMT.

While in Peru, fell in love with a Shaman who was really a plumber from Padstow, but stayed because of attachment issues.

After following a puma from the jungle, I holed up in a Scandi-style Air B’n’B and finally got enlightened.

Parts of this story are true.
