Meeting your Guardian Spirit

.
A lot of people have had experiences when they were aware of a disembodied spirit or entity that helped them. I have been aware of such an influence many times and each instance has affected me profoundly.

I have written about the Angel of Inverness, an entity or force that saved me from a savage beating some years ago and also about the Phantom Hotel, in which the Universe or an unseen force provided a hotel and probably rescued me from freezing to death on a winter night. I remember the telephone call from my mother's cellphone the day after she died and the spirits of Nikolei and his Victorian companion who showed my wife and I the safe way down from a blizzard on a mountain-top (and who then promptly disappeared)

So is there a way to meet and see and perhaps even learn the name of your guardian spirit?

I admit that most times, I am content to approach spirit intervention in a "New Age" way and refer to the unseen help as an assistance from "The Universe" - but that is rather like praying to God - God is so vast as to be really beyond personification. People often prefer to pray to Jesus, or to one of the Saints...or to their past loved ones: Mothers and Fathers, Husbands and Wives, Sons and Daughters and even pets.

One of the most exciting moments for me, was the remark by Chris, a London clairvoyant and astrologer, who stated "Your Mother is now your Spirit Guide." The fact that the astrological chart he was working from, showed the influence as coming from Capricorn was thrilling, as my Mother was born under the sign of the Goat and especially thrilling, as Chris didn't know that fact.
Chris went on to explain that my mother was now the filter through which other spiritual entities could contact me. He also indicated that my mother was accelerating my spiritual learning by allowing more of their power and influence to reach me.

Does that sound far-fetched?

Well it does to me sometimes - yet I cannot deny that the four years since her passing have been full of spiritual encounters and instances which would have scared me some years ago...including a vision of the most beautiful and loving face I have ever seen in my life.

I was lying in bed, just drifting off to sleep and had just reached that wonderful moment between dreams and reality when it happened.
Looking down at me, as if from a balcony, was a woman. She had dark hair and seemed to be in her middle thirties. But it was her face and her smile. I have never seen such radiance and beauty. By beauty, I don't mean the conventional looks of a film-star; in fact she would best be described as 'a handsome woman' - indeed there was a certain androgynous quality about her - she was both man and woman, but with an over-riding femininity that allowed me to choose to regard her spirit as female - indeed as "Mother Universe"
Did I see the Universe, that expanding womb of 'reality' as being personified as the most wonderful, strong and nurturing woman I have ever seen in my life - I do believe I did.

I will never, never forget her smile and the feeling of absolute love that radiated from her. Sometimes I try to recall her face and I can...almost... but not quite. If dying is to meet her again, then I have no fear of death, only of the process of dying, which seems in the main to be rather uncomfortable - but if  she is waiting for me, then I guess I can put up with it.

So ask your Spirit Guide to show themselves. Ask with respect and allow yourself time to lie open and accepting. It may take weeks or months, but if it is right for you, your Guardian may appear.

If it happens, I promise you that you will never forget it.

  1. That is impressive Henry. I would love to be able to see that inviting beautiful face. I'm not sure my mind is open enough for it. The greatest beauty I see is always in nature itself.

    My dreams are filled with visions of mountain streams, vistas far seeing, billowus white clouded sky's on a soft inviting blue tapestry. Animals of many forms, ranging wild and free, existing for their wonder. Music whispered through tree limbs and boughs, beautiful and unique, often unheard by many... yet treasured by a lucky few.

    Perhaps my spirit guide is somewhere within those visions, hiding there waiting for the moment that is right to show itself.

  2. Hi Eric ~ The "Green Man" (as in Robin Hood's father and Herne) is the personification of the God of Nature...so you are correct in my opinion

    "Perhaps my spirit guide is somewhere within those visions"

    It's a theme and an idea for your story...I must check back to see how it is going

    As my work settles down, I'll become more in touch.

  3. Henry, I have to thank you, This post spurred my creative side, and the Forest Trees Whispering was the resulting post.

    I have said a few times that I don't "see" the spirits, but after realizing what I wrote, I see that I have heard them, and conversed with them many a time without realizing it.

    Now back over to Reflections I must go!

  4. Hi Henry!

    This is SUCH a wonderful topic to write about. NONE of it seems far fetched to me, if anything I am envious of your beautiful experiences.

    I know I have had the unseen angels help many a time in my life, but just recently I have become very open to channeling or connecting with my spirit guide(s), angels, etc. I have not received any names or images yet, that I know of, but I have been given 2 messages so far from the most precious beautiful talking baby in my dreams.

    They moved me very much and I long for more contact. I am sure that as I continue to still my life and open myself up more, more will come.

    I loved your stories here Henry and I love the purpose of this blog you have to just "talk freely".

  5. soul merlin, this is an incredibly candid and thought-provoking post. Often, human beings deny they have spirit guides and avoid the subjects of death. They fear uncertainty, lucidity and, what their human conditioning cannot prove or explain. In the physical world, people are taught to prepare for future, yet to prolong youth and postpone dying as if its something undesirable. Note the irony and lack of interconnected awareness.

    The recent film, The Curious Life of Benjamin Button offers another perspective on dying. It concerns a human life in reverse. That is, a man gets younger rather than aging as people come to expect. Who says human conditioning in the physical world is "right?" A less popular view is that each energy being comes full circle, evolving from knowing at birth through stages of brainwashing ans peeling the layers of illusion, to revert back to accessing that inner knowing. This process has nothing to do with perceived age or time because in the spirit dimension, these human inventions do not exist.

    When it comes to guardian spirits, some beings experience the help of different guides at different life stages. Your story of learning your mom became your spirit guide suggests you had others before she passed. You also mention she acts as a "filter" to screen other spirits that get through to you. This teaches energy beings in the physical world varied gatekeepers exist. You give meaning to terms because words are human inventions aswell. Spirit communicate in creative ways as they learn to align with human thought.

  6. Dear henry, This is what life is really about...when lived fully. I LOVE this whole experience you had. Not only an astounding experience but soooo beautifully written. Exquisite.

    I too have spirit guides, so real they are as real as you and me right now. Mine are not all in human form. Some are real people that were once in my life, like my father, and occasionally my mother, but definitely my father, very very strongly. But most of my spirit guides are connected with Nature. The trees have been the most real spirit guides in my life. I write about them in the book I just finished. Although not in human bodies, they are very much people-like, with voices, personalities, singular and collective. They watch over me and love me like I've never been loved in my life. It seems to be a mutual - two way - relationship. In that they beceom very excited when I am around them, as joyous to see me as I am to see them. We are truly old friends. And then just the Earth, Seas, Mountains, Stars and Universe in general is a massive spirit guide for me, in all it's many forms.

    There are also people living who have come into my life and whether they know it consciously or not I communcate with their soul and spirit on a level where I hear their soul telling me that they have come to help. But then I tend to communicate with people firstly on a soul level.

    This is so exciting henry and such a powerful experience. I am very glad you shared it with us.
    Hugs and love,
    Robin

  7. Dear Robin ~ This passage from your comment is so wonderful, that I thought I would copy it below.

    "I too have spirit guides, so real they are as real as you and me right now. Mine are not all in human form. Some are real people that were once in my life, like my father, and occasionally my mother, but definitely my father, very very strongly. But most of my spirit guides are connected with Nature.

And then just the Earth, Seas, Mountains, Stars and Universe in general is a massive spirit guide for me, in all it's many forms."

    The thought of the tree-spirits becoming very excited when you are around them, really makes me smile and laugh with joy.

    Love

  8. Dear Evita ~ Sorry I've been so long in replying...Your beautiful talking baby sounds wonderful.

    I'm sure that people see their guides and spirits and angels in the way that is harmonious with their perceptions...it is clear that you have seen them.

    Love

  9. Dear henry, I was so touched by your note on Blog Catalog and here. It made me see myself through your eyes, and that you understood and deeply appreciated that the trees can be VERY excited so see us meant sooooooo much to me. Your large magnificent Oak that stands in the middle of the field (the one you photography) must love you dearly, simply revere every visit you make to it, no matter how brief. I just feel this to be true. You are blessing. Robin xo

  10. Hi Henry,
    I feel so bad I somehow missed this post. It is so inspiring and beautiful. I could feel serenity as you described Mother Universe. I am going to take your advise and ask the spirit guides to come to me. I have been waiting for them just to appear.I have had some signs I feel, but maybe by inviting them I will see more.
    Thanks Henry,
    Janet xo
