So I hope all of you have been meditating. There are many reasons to do so – grow your gifts, grow spiritually, heal, send healing, meet your guides, work with your guides and grow your vocabulary. Be sure to set an intention as to why you are meditating. Meeting your guides is very interesting work. At first I sensed them around me. I didn’t know names or gender. One teacher thought it was important to know their names. I did not and still do not agree with that notion. In some instances we meet our guides in dreams and don’t even realize it. One time I had a “dream” with four people sitting on a bench. I felt the gentleman was in charge, all were elderly. A day or two later it struck me that they were my guides. Have you had dreams with reoccurring people in them who you don’t know, but they feel familiar? They may be your guides. Be sure to acknowledge them. The gatekeeper is similar to the guardian angel in that they are with you from the day you are born to the day you leave this plane of existence. There are other guides to include Native-American, Nurse, Nun, Doctor, Chemist and Joy to name a few. Old-timers, and say that with all due respect, believe in these. At first, like most, I was skeptical. Finally, one day while I was sitting in a brief meditation, I said fine show yourselves, and they lined up one by one in quick order. I loved it! When experiences happen, you have to believe. Spirit will keep coming back with signs until you do. As a medium, I have guides who assist with my public message work and various ones for private message work. We all do have guides. All we have to do is look for them, ask them to appear in your dreams. Believe they exist, and they will be more than happy to help. Look for the signs!
