Your gatekeeper, also known as life guide or doorkeeper, is the guide that is with you from birth until your trasition to spirit. The gatekeeper is your overall protector, they watch over your other guides and the spirits who wise to communicate with you, they are always there to lend guidance and help in any way they can. While some guides change periodically through your life, the gatekeeper is a constant companion. I got this meditation from bucklands book of spirit communications, this is my revised version.
Get into a comfortable meditative position, begin breathing through your nose and out your mouth, clear your mind, once you feel ready, do the meditation below: 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 to the right, into the woods, take that path, it leads at a slight downward slope, winding in amongst the trees. You can see the sun up above, shining down through the branches and creating a wonderfully warm and comforting enviroment.
Small animals such as squirrels, rabbits, and chipmunks peek out at you as you go on your way. The angle of a descent gradually steepens, and you come to a cliff edge. You are not very high up, in fact you are no higher than the tops of the trees below the cliff. You see that someone has cut large steps into the face of the cliff and these lead downward to the wooded 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 find a river, a tree has fallen so you jump onto the tree and cross the river.
Ahead of you the trees start to thin and you come out of the woods into a field, to your left you see mountains, to your right more of the field beyond. In front of you, the middle of the field at who's edge you stand, there is a circle of standing stones. Each stone stands nine to ten feet tall, there are a number of them forming the circle. Move forward into the ring, you feel happy, warm, and comfortable, as if the stones are gaurdians surrounding you and keeping out all of negativity. Sit down on the grass, you are aware of the warmth and sound of the birds. For a moment breathe in all the wonderful energies of this sacred place. As you sit there quietly you are aware of another person joining you. They move around to face you. It's a good prescence, a comforting one.
It's your personal guide, it's your personal guide, your gatekeeper who has watched over your progress for many years. Don't yet open your eyes, but stand up, reach out your hands and take those that are offered. Feel them, feel the love and warmth that comes from them. Now open your eyes and see your guide, is it a man or woman? Young or old? What are they wearing? Notice everything about them. Ask by what name you should call them, and greet them appropriatly. Ask if they have a special message for you. When you are finished, thank your guide, bid them goodbye, and say that you will meet them again very soon. Then walk out of the circle back towards the woods, then follow the path you came from, and find yourself back in your meditative position.
NOTE: This circle of stones is your sacred space, you can come back here at anytime and speak with whoever you want and be perfectly safe and secure, no one else can come in here without your permission.
