Spirit guides have names, and while many will answer to just about anything you call them, they can be identified individually by color, symbol, numerical code or yes, name. Determining the names of your guides allows you to know who you’re connecting with, helps you place the energy so you can sort it and identify it more easily the next time it all comes, and it’s a helpful way to organize energy, information, and thoughts coming in creating more peace of mind.
Spirit guides can choose to communicate with you many ways:
Providing you with intuitive signals, hunches, a knowingness, gut feelings
Nudges in a certain direction or even small pushes to do or say something you wouldn't normally say
Give you a feeling you get about something (this is called clairsentient transference)
Sending you physical signals - such as books, flyers, commercials, songs - to deliver poignant messages hard to display otherwise
And one of their most favorite methods of communication is by delivering messages to you through other people.
Unknowingly to the recipient, Spirit Guides will often give information to your friends, loved ones, strangers on the street, teachers, or others - explicitly for you to hear and be touched by to get through their messages across in the 3d plane, if they can't get it through in the 4th dimensional plane.
But you have to be open to receive these messages, no matter how they are received, and not on the defensive at the time you receive them, for this to work, and also, they have to find someone you trust to deliver it through.
So roundabout messages from Spirit Guides take time and while your Spirit Guides will continue to send you clues, signals, subtle signs to help guide and direct you on your life path - you can tap into more straightforward guidance by communicating with your guide directly.
Working directly with your Spirit Guide can help you:
Feel empowered and secure in making decisions and amongst changes
Have more clarity and insight on your life path
Develop your spiritual and intuitive gifts
Become more compassionate and understanding for yourself and others
Make a more significant difference in the world and your environment
Find love and loving relationships more quickly
Heal long-standing issues and emotional pains
Surrender and have fun with the way things are and where they are going
Smile more often
But often, the first step in working with your Spirit Guides is getting more direct information and you do this by knowing what to call them.
The importance of the name of your Spirit Guide
Your Spirit Guides do have names, or at least energetic signatures, by which you can call on them and identify them.
Does it matter what their names are?
Not technically, but having something to call an isolate being you're talking to, helps identify the energy, helps to establish a connection and helps you call them forward for careful guidance when needed.
Each of your guides will have slightly different energies, personalities, opinions, and vibrations - which you will be able to pick up and learn in time - but the name of your guide is something you can pick up right now.
To get the name of your Spirit Guide, simply let your mind go blank.
Stop thinking, just take some deep breaths and imagining all your energy settling to your feet like sand in a glass water jar.
It will get harder to get anything the more you try to concentrate on thinking it up. It's funny like that I know but the more you let your mind go, the easier it will be. So, release the need for thought. Let it go. Breathe.
The merely ask out loud, or within your mind, “What is the name of the Spirit Guide who is ready to work with me now?”
And wait, see if numbers start to come forward, or you hear a whisper.
Grab the first name that comes to mind.
Sometimes guides can be identified by numerical code, or symbol, too.
It doesn’t have to be abstract, either, as some Spirit Guides have very ordinary names such as Julia or Bob or Amanda.
Just write down the first thing that comes to mind, and this is most likely the name of one of your Spirit Guides. If it is, it is often later validated by other means. Your Spirit Guide may even share the name of someone you already know - such as your daughter, lab partner, or your cat. They do this to introduce you to them slowly... for a lot of people, it's the middle name of a child, or likewise.
Not getting a name? Sometimes it comes in dreams and there are also other ways to identify your guides, such as by sensation or color.
The Meditation Series, The Spiritual Gateway Meditations, also walks you through the process of connecting with a Spirit Guide and through it, you can even get a name. There are also several Spirit Guide Meditations in The Member Center, such as the Connecting with a Spirit Guide Meditation, Merging with Your Guides Meditation, and the Spirit Guide Communication Meditation which can also walk you through a name for your guide. Learn more about joining The Membership Program here and gaining access to the meditations in The Member Center.
