Can we talk about our spirit guides and their names once we discover them? Or would that be breaking a sacred trust of privacy between our spirit guides and us? Should we ever share these names with anyone, or are they meant to be kept for our personal knowledge only? -- Kevin
I'm wondering in what circumstances it might be "dangerous" to do so... and I can't think of any context where the spirit guides themselves, or their relationships with you, could possibly be negatively impacted by simply sharing their names.
I can also think of many examples where professional intuitives discuss their spirit guides and identify them by name, myself included. However, while there are a few of my guides I might write about publicly, or talk about with friends or clients, there are still more guides that I do not.
My reasons for not speaking about some of them is simply that it is difficult to articulate details about some of them, while other guides have personal qualities that are relatively easy to describe.
Some simply "come up in conversation" or there is a context to why I may speak of them.
I think the bottom line is: it's a personal choice.
Is it better to find out who your spirit guides are on your own, or is it equally valid to ask someone about who your spirit guides are? I'm not at the point where I can visualize them in great detail during meditation on my own, so I'm interested in getting a professional intuitive reading to discover more details about them. -- Christy
As for discovering information about your spirit guides on your own versus through an external source, such as another intuitive -- honestly, a combination of all potential sources would be ideal.
While some external information can corroborate your own, there are also multiple guides around you, and sometimes different people pick up on different guides for different reasons…
I believe you want to "patch it all together."
And, keep in mind, your intuition is never "wrong." If you run across a conflict of information that you cannot justify, never "demote" your own wisdom for someone else's. Go with your own.
