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)
I could go on listing the many many occurrences and events that have helped and protected me throughout my life - some I have not yet written about - but the purpose of this new side-blog (you can find it on the sidebars of the Almanack and Flowers) is for me to chat freely about my experiences, without applying the more stringent criteria I use in my other blogs.
So today's chat is about 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 freaked me out 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. I had 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 'sh-he' is waiting for me, then I guess I can put up with it.
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.
I promise you that you will never forget it.
Happy Valentines Day
