Some Philosophy on guides/guardians/gatekeepers
For the development class i attend I have to put together some philosophy. Hopefully it will generate a discussion! As I have written this out any I thought I would post here too. It may help some of you understand.
Your Spiritual Guides, Spirit Guides, Angels and Gatekeepers / Spirit Controllers
Let’s see if we can share, learn and have some fun with this - to me - this is a very serious topic. It is one where loads of people seem to loose the plot a bit and confusion reigns! Hopefully by the end of this we will all be talking the same language.
In any Community there are those who feel called to assist others along Spiritual Paths and who are known as Ministers, Rabbis, Pastors, Shamans, Priests or other titles. We call such people guides; those experienced in some practice, familiar with the terrain, and who act to facilitate the spiritual practices of others. A Guide need not claim exclusive or definite knowledge of the terrain.
Spirit Guides are Entities in the Spirit Realm that are with us on this Earth Plane. They communicate with us through ‘intuition’ and ‘gut feelings’ that we get. Spirit Guides are NOT here to walk our path for us but they will, (and do), walk WITH us. We have but to ask and words will be put into our heads. Spirit Guides have already walked the Earth Plane - so they truly UNDERSTAND. We have Guides that can come, and go, at different stages of our life path - some we will be more aware of than others.
You will have different guides who will assist you on your different paths. I have one Indian guide who assists me with relationships. I have another guide who is my healer.
What do spirit guides look like - I can't describe spirit guides to you as I have never seen these guides in that manner. It is unimportant to us knowing what our Spirit Guides look like - It is acknowledging and accepting their 'company' and also appreciating the areas that they can help us with, which is our spiritual growth and development.
How you do experience your spirit guide? You will just become of aware of them at first. But how?
Step 1 is accepting that we have Spirit Guides - that old gut feeling etc. Further along your path you will find that you can quite easily tune into your Spirit Guides………. but don’t expect it to be like a phone call to your Grannie! Spirit Guides with us will have experienced the Earth Plane in a physical form there are, however, Guides from a different Energy or a different Plane than Spirit Guides.
Angels are beings of energy. And this energy is the energy of pure love. Unlike human beings Angels do not suffer from fear, doubt and guilt. All their actions are driven by one thing pure unconditional love.
Angels are completely non-denominational. And their primary desire is to help you. Their help comes with no conditions. You don’t even need to believe in Angels for them to help you. All that you need to do is simply ask the Angels for their help. And if you would like to do something in return, just thank the angels for their help.
Because of free will Angels are unable to help you unless you specifically ask them for help. The only exception to this rule is if you are involved in a life and death situation before your time.
Every human being from birth to death, with no exceptions, has at least 2 guardian angels. These angels are with you constantly, and love you unconditionally. Nothing you could ever do or say would ever stop them loving you or make them leave your side.
An infinite number of other angels exist who are not directly assigned as guardian angels. And these angels are also there to help you and the world. Overseeing the angels and guardian angels are the mighty archangels. And it is also their pleasure and desire to also help you and the world.
Don’t worry that by calling on the angels for help that you are taking them away from someone else. This is not the case. Angels do not have the same time and space limitations as us humans. They are easily with each and every being that calls upon them for help.
I believe that Angels have never had the previous Earth Plane experience that our Guides have - maybe they have evolved elsewhere and are now 'inspirers' for some of us evolving here. At times Angels and Spirit Guides team up for us. Because of the higher vibration at which Angels operate I believe that as mere Mortals we have no 'direct' line with Angels - like we can have with our Spirit Guides. I have not, so far, experienced an Angel so – it’s only my belief. We can, however, ask for help from Angels, and via spirit helpers these messages will be routed through the required entity.
Gatekeepers / Spirit Controllers
Now we look at Gatekeepers, also known as Spirit Controllers.
As Gatekeepers they do what the title suggests - they open and close the gate between this Plane and Spirit ;………well - ‘regulate’ rather than open/close. The Gatekeepers job is to control the flow rate whilst we are ‘Open’ and ‘Channelling’, and also to ensure that we can cope with what we Channel. Gatekeepers are, however, well known for not always paying attention to their duties particularly when they are ‘new to the job’ - i.e. our first few 'open' sessions. If it comes to you in broadband but you can only deal with dial up - It is your Gatekeepers that you need to contact - not your ISP!
You contact the Gatekeepers as you do your Spirit Guides - although due to their nature - you might have to work on your communication with the Gatekeepers hard and often - in order for you and the Gatekeepers to agree and thus get it right.
We as people have very limited access to the spiritual, and are only allowed admission into the arena open to us. As we establish ourselves trustworthy with little, so the territory we may explore increases. This is the purpose of the gatekeeper
Also consider that your Guides and/or Gatekeepers may also be on a ‘learning curve’, and they will make mistakes which they will learn from.
People get very confused about these aspects of Spirit - but before we can move on to another level of our path – it’s imperative that we personally understand and are aware of the differences.
There are differing ranks in the spiritual army and your assigned entities will take on differing forms depended on the vulnerability you have in the spiritual arena. They will only manifest themselves to you if there is a need to do so. Hence, if you have not yet met members of your Spirit team, it is because there hasn’t been a need for them to come forward.
Also consider that our team members need not have once been human; the entities come in many forms and we have fairies, nymphs and animal guides (I have a wolf guide for example).
Am so sure lots of people will find this interesting Art. It cleared up a couple of things for me.
Thank you friend.

Thankyou for posting these thoughts , very interesting. Maybe you can help, I hear two names when asking my gatekeeper to protect me, I asked on the forum and everyone was great and gave me some good advice. No-one else had two seperate gatekeepers, have you heard of this? You know how it is, although you know it is true and what you heard, you still doubt it, if no-one can relate to it, or maybe thats just me :)
love and light
Thankyou, that would make sense, is definately two names but no visual image to go with it, although I know gatekeepers are not usually visual. I like the idea of Mentor/student, sounds viable. Thankyou for your advice, appreciated :)
Thankyou for this important thread Art,are you wearing your shining armour suit today?? Think you areeeeeeeeeeeeeeee x
Art, I always love your threads, they're so informative and clear a lot of things up.
Wonder if you could help though? I was once falling asleep and someone clearly whispered 'Asphodel' in my left ear. I feel that this is the name of an angel, but can't seem to find any reference when I look on websites etc.
Any ideas anyone?
Blessings, Lee :)
this thread is v good and enlightening, ART.I love hw knowledgeable you are about the spirit world. I think its nice to have ppl like u who know so much about whats going on in the world around us in terms of the unseen, instead of jus the material and livin life "blindly." Av always been interested in the unseen thats one of the reasons y i joined this forum. Btw what development classes do u attend? x
A big thanks for that i found this so intresting as i do all your posts. I was once meditating and heard emanuella ( hope i spelt that correct) being called down to me and didnt understand very well, i later found out it could be a spirit guide but have never been able to contact or heard from him again :(

Hi Art, Thanks again i will try asking them tonight while in meditation.

bout spirit guides 4 ages since joinin this forum and learnin more about wicca, spiritualism, etc bt am still terrified of spirits, ghosts, etc and duno hw to get past this. bt angels and the idea of angels, however, seem to make me feel more comfortable. i think perhaps wen i picture spirits i think of ghosts in haunted movies, etc. Sorry 4 dis am stil in the beginning stages and need a lot of help to clear my emotional blockages, so that i cud improve my psychic abilities. I tried to open my thrid eye recently bt i think i probs need more practice, etc.
agree with art...my belief is that i have only one gate keeper yet several spirit guides....my gate keeper believe it or not is a wolf....i see him a lot in my 3 rd eye and call when i need protection....if i am in a dangerous situation i see him scaring off the negativity around me..
