Lately, my clients have been asking me a lot about spirit guides and their role in mediumship. They want to know who these guides are, what they do, how to work with them, what they look like, and how to meet them.

Each and every one of us has spirit guides. They are a reflection of our characters and personalities, and we have one or more guides for various reasons. These guides can change throughout our lifetimes and are there to provide guidance and assistance in our decision-making.
Many people assume that spirit guides must be Native Americans or wise men from China, but that’s not always the case. They can be anyone or anything. They could be an old farmer from the Middle Ages or a young child from recent decades who passed away prematurely. Whoever or whatever they are, they choose to guide us for a reason. I strongly believe that we may have known these guides in past lives, and they choose to guide us based on that connection. It’s possible that we may have even guided them when we were in spirit and they were in the physical realm.
Personally, I became aware of at least one of my guides when I was around 5 or 6 years old. I used to have a recurring dream about a hooded man with a long grey beard whom I would talk to. It was never scary; in fact, it was incredibly comforting. I still remember it vividly, and the feeling I had during that experience has never left me. For me, the sensation of knowing my guides are around me is distinct and unlike any other.
As I grew older and embarked on my spiritual journey, I began to piece things together. Throughout my journey, this guide has always been by my side. I can only describe him as an old great schema monk from the Eastern Orthodox Church.
One question I often receive is how to get to know our guides and see them. Meditation is the best way to bring them closer and feel their energy. You may see an image of someone and be able to discern their background and the era they come from. Seeing them is not necessary; the most important thing is learning how to call them close, feel their energy, and recognize it.
Spirit guides are crucial in mediumship for several reasons. They provide protection, information to pass on to clients, help bring forward spirits, give us the energy to work with, allow us to connect with the client’s guides, and provide signs and feelings if something is amiss.
You may never know their names or much about them at all. They can’t give you lottery numbers or fix your car. Their sole purpose is to guide us on our spiritual journeys. Our journeys are intertwined with theirs, as they have their own spiritual purpose to fulfill. One of my guides once told me this during meditation, and it has stuck with me ever since.
Our guides truly love us unconditionally, and when we feel stuck, all we need to do is call on their guidance to help us through difficult times. It has always worked for me, and I always feel their encouragement to keep going with what I love, even during tough times when I feel like giving up. There always seems to be a guiding light in the darkness that calls to me.
I wish all of you well as you embark on the lengthy, personal, and emotional process of getting to know your guides. Please check out my YouTube page, which is connected to my website, for meditation videos. I will be creating more of them soon.
