A Shamanic Spirit Guide may be understood by taking apart the sentence and the meaning behind the words within it. A Spirit is something or someone who's consciousness is in spirit form (non-physical).
This may be the spirit of someone who is living' such as The Shaman, or somebody who is not living and is pure spirit, or even the spirit of a natural entity or force.
The Spirit of a person may be considered to be the aspect of an individual which occupies the physical body, yet its existence is not reliant upon the physical body. It is the Ghost. Of course a Human Spirit often takes on Human form and so may appear like a person.
A Shamanic Spirit may however be linked to the Spirit of an animal, plant or element and often is experienced this way. The truth is far more complicated but for now this is good.
A Guide is a force or an intelligence which shows another the way, regardless of context. For example a tour guide may show a person the way around an unfamiliar city. So it is that the Spirit Guide shows a person around an unfamiliar breadth of experience.
The only advantage that a proficient guide has over the person they are guiding is familiarity with the territory.
If a person is unfamiliar territory then any guide which knows the territory, and has positive intent, is very useful indeed.
Why do we have guides at all?
Consider the fact that our parents are our guide’s in so far as physical and shared reality. Without some adult guidance we would never learn to talk, walk or use the toilet.
We learn from those who guide us, and any guide shows the way or necessary behaviour to secure satisfaction.
So it is that we have guides which teach us and nurture our development into the non-physical realities.
We all have them and every culture across recorded history makes reference to them.
One of the most interesting is the Latin Genius and is ‘A guardian deity or spirit which watches over each person from birth’. This of course is the same as the guardian Angel of other theologies. It is interesting because of the connotations of exhibiting Genius. If one is ingenious they are said to be marked out by having a cunning and inventive mind.
This is the result of entering into a relationship with one’s Genius, which is of course called ‘The Higher Self’ these days…
The truth is that when a person enters into a conscious relationship with ANY guide they are set upon a path, relative to the territory familiar to the particular guide. A Genius will guide the individual into their own Genius and as such they may become ingenious!
We have spiritual guides to assist us when we begin to experience the world of spirit.
We have Demonic guides when we begin to explore the world of the Daemon.
Each guide we have has its territory and as such they are the intelligence, whom may assist our journey through this particular territory, whatever or wherever this may or may not be.
What are the advantages?
There are many of course and each depends upon the nature of the guide, the person’s intelligence, the life path, the required projection and so on and so forth…
For example if one desires to exhibit creativity and be free to express oneself, then having support from another who has achieved this already (familiar territory), is a direct advantage.
This is provided that one not only hears but listens.
The Shaman here who is writing these words, has various direct/fixed guides and a team of back-up intelligence's, which are transient. The fixed guides are permanent and relevant to the work I do and each has a connection to archetypal forces, and thus the collective consciousness. The transient guides come and go, in relevance to the current environment and its pressures.
Within the fixed' guides there are two which are the first step outward, in so far as moving away from this reality. There is one who keeps me safe and informed in either contrasting direction. Each of these then links to another and so on and so forth, thus creating an effective chain of intelligence, which encompasses that which is in existence, including you.
It may be perceived as a hierarchical command structure whereby each aspect is aligned with the next, and each respects the other and it’s opposite.
It is perhaps easy to understand as the workings of a clock, as each piece coordinates to facilitate the telling of time. So it is with the multiple guides mentioned as each is coordinated to achieve a particular set of goals, and this is what they protect, including me and my own movement toward satisfying our collective goals.
Thus a direct advantage of having connection to one’s Soul, and the guides therein, is total and utter security as anything which is negative is effectively isolated and removed from the system.
Anything which is positive is attracted and integrated within the system, of which my experienced reality is a part.
Of course I refer here to manifestation. The decision about what is positive and what is negative is relative to our SHARED purpose, which of course I am familiar with.
One of the greatest advantages of any guide is that they supply the guided with information. What the guided does with this information is up to them, and unfortunately not always too funny to behold.
The average person is almost sleep walking it seems, and as such they are cut-off from the information which may procure their happiness. Unfortunately the trance which people are often in is not an accident. It has been engineered to subjugate the masses, and as such ANY positive guide shall assist your liberation firstly, and then administer to your needs secondly.
How does it work?
The Shaman has connected 100’s of people thus far directly to their guides. The Shaman has sworn a sacred oath in order to support the hearts of people, and so is driven to do this in any way possible.
One of the most effective ways to liberate an individual is to connect them with their personal power, and the way to do this is to introduce the management systems, of this power.
These management systems are a person’s guides, who shall teach a person how to manage their power.
The process of what takes place depends upon the depth of the individual contemporarily.
For those who are just starting out upon their journey then a conversation whilst walking often suffices, as The Shaman trains your body how to connect to these resources. For the conscious self it may be an interesting experience of course, but it is the unconscious which must be educated fully.
I prefer to do this whilst walking because it teaches that the connection can be made anywhere. It also means that whenever the going gets tough (ignorance) then you can just go for a walk ;)
On the more complex levels of connection such as archetypal strategies a ritual must be performed. This is predominantly for safety reasons and as such it takes the form of a personal guided mediation.
There is a different process for every connection to guidance and each process is also individualistic, and this is what makes being a Shaman so interesting after all…
How much does it cost?
These training services offered each has a different pricing strategy in relation to the other services.
The reason for this is because when The Shaman assists another in training, it is understood that the trainee is also a Shaman.
For example if another wishes me to show them how to commune with their deceased Mother, I will not nor can I charge for this service.
I am not the typical priest who grows rich from the ignorance of others, yet nor am I typically seeking poverty.
So it is that if you ask me to connect you to and through your higher self it is absolutely free of charge.
You may of course donate to charity or buy me a present but this is NEVER an obligation.
If however you desire to be connected to and through your lower self then this requires payment.
The Shaman may connect you to your Daemon, but this shall cost at least £100 and may be up to £1000 depending upon how much assistance is involved, and of course your current connection.
The Shaman may offer connection directly toward archetypal forces but this is rare indeed, for The Shaman knows of the madness involved.
The truth is that there is no fixed or average price.
The best thing to do is to send me an Email with an interesting story about you. Let me know why you feel able to make these connections, and if possible why you are not utilizing them.
From here we can have a chat and move forward from there?
