Do you sense Spirits when they are around?
Can you see those in Spirit in your dreams, with your eyes closed or in everyday life?
I can see spirits in dreams, with my eyes closed, with my eyes open, as sparkles of light, out of the corner of my eye, in my peripheral vision, as fuzzy air and simply by sensing where they are in the room.
If I can do this, you can too. And for nearly 15 years, I tried to pretend like it didn’t exist. I was in denial and I tried to make “it” go away and simply ignore them.
My approach was very similar to seeing an ex-boyfriend at a mutual friend’s pool party - don’t make eye contact, pretend they aren’t there and try to act like you are having a really good time without them.
That was my approach. After long, the ‘ex boyfriend’ decided that the gig was up and I could no longer ignore him. By this I mean, the Spirits I was seeing got real tired of not being seen . . .of being ignored. They knew I could see them, they knew I had eyes that operated like that, which is why they were appearing to me. And they’d had enough.
Those in Spirit started appearing to me and being in my presence so often, it was hard to concentrate on anything or anyone else, let alone get a good nights sleep, with a spirit standing over my shoulder, showing up in my dreams or knocking around things in the kitchen at 2 a.m.
By the time I was 26, they (Spirits) were doing everything they could to get my attention, and in essence, trying to get me to wake up to my abilities. To finally accept who I was and stop being scared of my own being. It worked. Eventually. . .
I gave in, and for the most part, my life is totally peaceful now. I’ve set boundaries, learned to use sage, but most importantly, I asked one of those very Spirits to help me manage all of it. I asked for a Spiritual agent to step forward.
If you are a medium, chances are, they know about you too. In the Spiritual World, Mediums are like beacons of light. Little light towers, scattered about the earth, portals of energy that loved ones, guides and angels can use to communicate with their loved ones still on the earth plane. Whether you are actively using your abilities or not, you’re a light tower on this giant medium map. You're kind of a portal. And it’s available to everyone on the Other Side, like a store directory in the center of mall food court.
This map, by the way, looks like a map of the night time sky. There are lights ALL over, pin-pricks of high Light energy scattered here, there and everywhere. You are one of these pinned spots.
And for the most part, these Spirits are coming to you because they know you can help them. Not to scare you, convince you that you are crazy or to encourage you to lose your mind. By this point in your life, a small crowd has gathered around you (like it did for me a few years ago), and everyone wants your autograph and a chance to connect with you.
You now need a doorman. A bouncer. An agent to keep out the riff-raff.
You need a gatekeeper guide.
I have a gatekeeper guide and I asked for one in an evening of emergency. When I felt like I was losing it, like I couldn’t sleep and like all these Spirits would not back off my case. I didn’t want them around, but I needed some control.
So, taking a total chance, I closed my eyes, and I asked for a Spirit in the Light (there’s a difference between Light and Dark spirits, by the way) to step forward and help me manage this.
With my eyes closed, in my imagination using my third eye, someone stepped forward. She was tall, fair skinned and had curly long brown hair. She was wearing light jeans, a white t-shirt, sneakers, like what you might buy at a discount clothing store. She looked like a middle aged soccer mom. And her name is Miri. She’s my gatekeeper guide.
How did I know her name? Well, I asked, in my mind, what is your name? And I waited until a name ‘came’ to me. In other words, the first name that popped into my head was “Miri”, and that’s what I’ve been calling her ever since.
If you can see spirits and even if you can’t, you too can request a Gatekeeper guide to step forward. We all have one. Their job is to keep us safe and clear, decide which spirits can connect with us and which ones cannot - providing us with the ultimate psychic protection.
Gatekeeper guides can step forward whenever you are feeling like there is a Spirit around and you’d rather not deal with it. They can step forward and ask this Spirit to back off your space. They are like professional body guards. They are also your agents, deciding who can connect with you and when. They can also help you decide who, in your human world and Spiritual world, are the best people for you to connect with.
If you are already a practicing medium, Gatekeeper guides can help the Spirits coming through line up in order, not talk over one another and sort out for you which spirits come to your sessions - as they work only with the highest energy and Light energy Spirits who have crossed. You’ll notice an improvement in your sessions right away!
I consult with Miri every time I encounter a Spirit, she comes to all of my sessions to help hold the channel open for clients and she assists in closing it, so no other beings step through on accident. She steps forward to assist me with darker beings and helps me with gentle public relations issues on the earth plane. In other words, she’s fantastic.
Ready to meet your Gatekeeper guide?
1. Get into a gentle meditative state. No need to go into a deep trance here, simply place both feet on the floor, sit down in a chair with a straight back and place both hands, palm up on your lap. Close your eyes. Take some deep breaths. Imagine energy flowing from your feet into the ground.
2. Ask for a name of your Gatekeeper guide. Ask within, inside your mind. And trust the very first thing that pops into your head. It doesn’t have to be a exotic or rare name - it could be Bob, Mark, Julie or Sarah. My sister’s gatekeeper guide is named Jack.The first name, when you ask, that pops in, is the name of your guide. If you don’t get one right away in meditation, don’t worry. You’ll get a name in the same day that you ask. It’ll be the *very* next name you hear. Keep an ear out!
3. Ask for a Gatekeeper guide to step forward. Seeing spirits is a lot like seeing in your imagination. It’s called clairvoyance and a lot of people think it’s more grand than it really is. If you have ever seen a memory in your mind, if you’ve ever visualized a scenario from the past or future, you can see a gatekeeper guide appear in this ‘memory/imagination’ space of your mind too.
With your eyes closed, ask for a guide to step forward. You might see a whole form, just a face or sense the idea of what this person looks like. Maybe you’ll see just the arms this time and next time, you’ll see more of this person. They will reveal themselves to you, visually, in time.
4. State your boundaries. You have asked for a gatekeeper guide because you need help navigating the Spiritual world. Internally, within your mind, tell your guide what you need from them. What do you want this person to do? Who should they keep out and let in? When? It’s your club, tell them how you want it run and managed! Make sure your guide knows who is and is not allowed inside the gates of your life. Learn more about setting boundaries here.
And that’s it! Did you get a name? An appearance? Please share your experiences below in the comments!
