Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels
The belief that human beings have spirit guardians watching over them is found in many ages and many societies around the world.The ancient Greeks,Romans,Egyptians,The Chinese,African Tribes,Amerindians,In the old testament and new in mohammedan belief-everywhere is found one or another aspect of the belief.Spiritualism certainly agrees that we each have a spirit guide.It is not somebody we choose.They choose us.Also,you may have more than one.Some mediums find they have one guide who works with them in clairvoyance,for example and another who works with them to do automatic writing,or physical mediumship.
There are some medius who specialize in psychic healing and have aa whole group of guides,some all of whom were doctors in their eartly lives.One point to keep in mind is that your importance does not increase in proportion to the number of guides you have!If your guide gives you details of his or her previous life or lives on the physical plane,accept it as something interesting but don't just dwell on it.It's only natural that you should look for some personal details of your guide's previous existence,but to get too caught up in what they did,where they lived,etc..is to detract from your main purpose,which is to do the work you have chosen to do...
How to find your Spirit Guide...
Begin by making sure you are quite secure(unlikely to be interrupted),and get comfortable.While meditating,visualise this:
You are walking along a country lane.The sun is shining down and you feel warm and happy.There's an open field on your left and a large woods on your right.You can hear birds singing in the trees and a gentle breeze wafts against your face.You see ahead of you a small path that leads off to the right,into the wood.Take that path.It leads at a slight downwards slope,winding in amongst the trees.You can see the sun above,shining down through the branches and creating a wonderfully warm and comforting environment.Small animals,such as squirrels and rabbits,peek out at you as you go on your way.You catch an occasional glimpse of a deer through the trees XD
The angle of descent gradually steepens and you come to a cliff edge.You are not very high up.In fact,no higher than the tops of the trees on the ground below the cliff.You see that someone has cut large steps into the face of the cliff and these lead down to the wooden ground below.You go down these steps.It's an easy descent and you feel safe and secure as you go down.At the bottom you cross the short expanse of grass to go once more in amongst the trees.As you move on,you soon become aware of the babbling of a brook.The sound gets louder as you approach it.As the path makes a turn to the right,you see the brook ahead of you.Its busy waters rushing over and arround small and large stones.The path you are on follows along the side of the brook and you walk along it,noticing how the water swirls and eddies as it goes on its journey.Other small streams come in to join it and gradually it sweels until it becomes a small river.As you walk on,beside it,you enjoy occasional glimpses of fish in the river,and of a duck or two that lands on teh water then takes off again.XD
A large tree has fallen and stretches across the river,its upper branches on the far bank.Take the opportunity to cross over.Jump up onto the tree trunk and walk across.You feel firm and secure,knowing you will not slip or fall.On the other side,you notice a large number of wild flowers growing in amongst the trees and underbrush.There is another path you were obviously not teh first to cross by the fallen tree.Follow along the path and notice the flowers and,again,the animals and birds.
Ahead of you the trees start to thin and you come out of the wood into a field.Stop and stand with the wood behind you.Fields stretch away to the horizon ahead of you.Off to the left you can make out high mountains,and to the right you can see the wood curving around and off with more fields beyond.But in front of you,in the middle of the field at whose edge you stand,there is a circle of standing stones.......
Each stone stands nine or ten feet tall.There are a number of them forming this circle.They look older than time.As if they have stood there for century upon century.Count how many there are.Move forward I N T O the ring.You feel happy,warm and comforted as though the stones are guardians surrounding you and keeping you all out of negativity.Walk into the very center of the circle they form and sit down on the grass.You are aware of the warmth of the sun and the sound of the birds.Again you feel that gentle breezze on your cheeks XD.Close your eyes for a moment( or two lol) and breathe deeply.Breathe in the wonderful positive energies of this sacred place.
As you sit there quietly,you become aware of another person joining you!!!Keep your eyes closed.This person has come up from behind you and now moves around to face you.It is a good presence,a comforting one.It is your personal GUIDE.It is the doorkeeper who has watched over your progress for many years.Dont yet open your eyes,but stand up and reach out your hands and take those that are offered.Feel them.Feel the warmth and love that comes from them.Now open your eyes and see your guide.
Is it a man or a woman?Young or old?WHat is he/she wearing?Notice everything about this guide.Ask by what name you should call him or her and greet them appropriately.Ask if they have any special message for you.Know THAT THIS STONE CIRCLE is your special place.You can come here anytime knowing that you can meet with your guide or anyone else you wish,and be perfectly safe and secure.You can ask all you wish to know of your guide.No one else can come here without YOUR permission.
When you have finished speaking with your guide,bid him or her goodbye and say that you will meet again very soon.Then turn and walk out of the circle,back towards the woods.Retrace your steps,going back to the river and across the fallen tree trunk.Follow back along the path until it parts company with the stream.Go up the steps in the cliff and head out of the wood again,back on to the country road.Know that you have had a unique journey,but that you can repeat it any time you wish.
Now........................ Breath deeply and relax,as you prepare to come back to your normal surroundings.Go through your body from the topy of your head down to your towes feeling your muscles awakening,feeling fresh and energized,ready for anything you want to tackle.Finish by opening your eyes,and after a couple of minutes of reorientation,stand up and feel good..
Easy,isn't it? XD
Hope you liked it
Love and Light xx
