Spirit Guides

March 2, 2008 · 4 Comments

I have been asked “Does everyone have Spirit guides?

 The answer is YES!

Guides should not be seen as deceased loved ones, ascended masters, angels nor gods, each of whom live at different energy levels and do not intermingle. This does not mean that gods, angels and ascended masters never appear but they do so at very, very difficult times and very seldom, if ever, do they appear on earth. Angels and Gods are the height of spiritual levels and though they can move between energies, they only move in the highest of divinity. Guides though appear all the time to us all.

There are five main types of guides, and each of them have a different reason for being. Each have mastered their own lives and in doing so have been called on to help us master ours. Guides show to us in different forms depending on our beliefs, needs, wants and wishes. They do so not because they have to, but because they need to draw our attention in order to get us to listen. For example, being Native American, my guides show to me as native people ranging from chief, clown, wolf (runner), brave and medicine man. These five are very different to me and each have a different tribal reason for being.

THE 5 GUIDE TYPES

  1. Teacher(chief)-This guide is not there all the time, as he is a high being in the guide realm and helps many at any one given time. Yet, he will show up when you need his type most and sit with you to guide you on your spiritual quest to further reach your life purpose. He also will send in other guides when they are needed for he knows what you need and when you need it.
  2. Personal- This guide is probably the one that stays with you the closest, for his job is to help you stay focused in everyday ways. He will make you smile when you start to frown, make your artistic ways explode when they are spiraling away from you and so on. This guide will also keep you focused and grounded when working with spirit beings, for he works with both worlds, the conscious and the divine source equally.
  3. The Runner – This guide is there to connect us in dreams and our higher moments with our loved ones and missing items of deep emotion. He also will guide you to places that will help further you on your spiritual path. This guide can come in human form but is mostly seen as a spirit animal. This one guide will often seem to leave when he is not needed, only to come back when he is needed most, but he is always there for life often showing up in dreams, visions or totems.
  4. Helper – this guide is the doctor, medicine man, or shaman in your life. He is there only when he is needed to help in the most dire of times. He often comes in as a very smart, astute and loving person but is very wise and purposeful in every way. They will show you how to handle certain stresses or health problems you are facing.  They should be listened to and given your utmost attention when they show to you, for they will advise you on how to handle things as they come.  It is advisable to follow up your helper’s counsel with professional care.
  5. Warrior-This guide also comes and goes when needed, but at times can stay longer than you need or even want. This is a two-fold guide for he can get you into trouble as much as he can get you out.  He is the one that will guide you through rough waters and ill-fated times, but also he is the one that can lead you into wars that are not yours to be in. These warrior types have always led exciting lives, often being the ninja, brave or viking in their previous times. Though they are a warring type they have also taught mastery of their own fears and weaknesses and in doing so can and will teach you how to master your own. So, when they show up know they are there for a reason. Listen to that reason with full intent but do not let them automatically lead you into battle.
  6. Ascended Masters-Though these higher beings are not guides they are very much worth mentioning in hopes of noticing a very distinguishable difference. These beings have reached the absolute pinnacle of the completion of enlightenment. They have overcome all of life’s lessons, both karmic and otherwise, and in doing such are led to guide the guides. These beings are seated in the light of the highest divine energy. They as highest guidance very seldom come to earth but do on occasion visit to let us know they exist and help the world overcome adversity.

Guides, as do all forms of Spirits, reach out to us in many ways, often through dreams, mediations and visions. Yet, they also show up in our conscious life in forms of animals, omens and sensual vibrations. When appearing in our sensual life they are often felt as warm or cool tingly vibrations that appear as if from no one source. These vibrations range in strengths dependent on your divine awareness at the time. When appearing in animal or omen-like form they often seem to show up everywhere and anywhere. The difference at the time of sighting from the occasional animal to the guiding sign is that they appear everywhere and anywhere until one feels in their gut that it can be no other than their guides speaking to them. These gentle and often touching moments are not meant to disrupt your day to day happenings, but to let you know they are watching and can if you are openly watchful guide you with gentle nudges.

 

Misguiding Guides?

Why do you think guides bring us lessons we aren’t ready for?

Guides dont send us lessons we are not ready for, but there are times were not sure we are ready for the lessons once they are sent. However, guides are divine messengers sent from the light and never bring things to us when were not ready. However,some people arent ready to move forward or finish old lessons for many reasons, all encompassing the recently discussed 3 walls(religion, society and control or lack there of).

With this said many seem to get into a comfortable position in life and fear moving forward. Or some even tend to forget the spiritual side of things and go forward in the conscious material realities. This often brings harsh times cause though were not ready the powers that be never forget about us and will see we need a helping hand to move forward. Thus, if one is not ready to move into the next lesson we will begin it whether we feel ready or not.

So, it is best to look upon our lifes and reasons we ourselfs dont feel ready to move forward. Is it because of fear or comfort? Or because we our selves for some odd reason feel we need to stay in the moment to be punished for some unknown reason?

Reguardless of the reason guides are heaven sent and when its time to learn a new lesson, whether were ready or not their gonna bring em to us. 

Animal Spirit Guides

March 14, 2008 · No Comments

What are animal guides and do we all have one? 

We all have atleast one animal spirit guide, and most have more than one. In many cultures these animal guides show in a variety of ways,  dreams, visions but most of all they show to us as animal favorites. Almost all humans have some form of animal they are very much intuned with, this is seen through the ways we collect their effigies, the way we dream about them or even at times pretend we are them. We don’t always have the same animal guides following us throughout our lifes, and at many times may change them due to our needs of their certain types of energy or skillset.

Each animal has their different types of energy and it is good to know their energy type for future usage. However, it is good to remember animals are pure divine energy direct from the creator and as such must be respected. Animal spirits are not always friendly, some are shy, some are timid and some are just plain vicious. Most though, especially when dealing with animal guides, are in spirit form because they were chosen to be such. Upon being chosen they were then given a purpose, to assist their chosen ward. These chosen wards of the animal guides must know that they’ve been chosen by the animal spirits themselves, and as such these spirits are not to be owned.

These guides are there to be an extended appendage of the humans inner senses. They can also be lent by us to help others in  deep times of need. When these spirits allow us to use them to assist others it is done though their true love and trust in our choices. This though isnt especially wise for once a spirit is loaned out in this fashion they usually dont return until their jobs are done. This often not only  leaves us without our guides, but depending on our animal spirit it could also leave us defenseless. Upon our guides return it is wise to quickly show them how much they’re appreciated for what they’ve done. 

So, besides having my house filled with a certain type of animal, how else may we know what our animal spirits are?

besides having ones house filled with a certain type of animal, one may also have visions or dreams of animals, one of which standing out more than the others or having only the one show up all together. This is a very good indication of that animal being your spirit guide. But, if you have never  dreamt of a certain animal, you may exhibit certain traits of youre guide. If this is not noticed because your not open, there is a couple simple exercises that may help.

Letter writing

  • At times one may be able to get the assistance in knowing their animal spirits through dreams.
  • As in the dream exercise, when you are feeling especially energetic write a letter with that energy directed at finding in youre dreams an animal totem.
  • When this letter is written with all youre energy directed into it place it under your bed pillow.
  • Just before falling asleep read that letter to yourself until it is deeply ingrained in your psyche, about 10x. This is so it is inset during your hypngogic state.
  • Whe you awake from youre dreams you may want to note if anything showed. If it has not attempt it again until it is rcvd. You may have a timid guide or it just may not be time for him to show

Guide meditation/visualization

  • Find a comfortable quiet place to get into a meditative state, away from others.
  • Once there remain quiet and begin proper slow breathing, deeply breath in through your nose and out through your mouth. Do this until you are fully relaxed
  • When you are finally fully relaxed, begin to lose all memories, feelings of the past and just focus on the now. To some this may still take several attempts to do
  • But if you can get to the meditative state, start to open your mind to show a large movie screen. Let this screen begin to show a movie of what ever and where ever it take you, atleast for the moment. Your psyche may have deeper reasons for letting you go this deep
  • Yet, you can control this image and if you are ready to do such, let it unfold to a happy place. Once there ask for the divine to help you locate your animal totem. This too may take several times to develope, but keep trying and it will eventually happen
  • When it does happen, remember you can stop it at any time and it is usually not good at first to go over 2-5 minutes at a time. When you come back to the hear and now, stand up and gently shake off any left over energy. then either mentally or physically note what was just seen

Once you do find your animal guide, make sure to keep a diary on their existence. In that make sure to note what is understood about animal energies, their energy meanings, and why their energy may be needed in your life. Through this not only will you begin to understand animal life but your life and all life that lies around you. Be sure also to make a mental note that different animal spirits may show up at different times, and with this Knowledge honor and cherish each animal in life as you would your animal guide.
