Why We Are Guided By Our Guides

 

Has anyone ever wondered why our guides appear in the animal forms that they do? Many sites, whether legitimate or not, will tell you a tiger means power and a wolf loyalty, both of which were my guides before they recently switched to coyote and (I think) arctic fox.

But how do we know that what we are told an animal means is what the guide symbolizes of us? Maybe you have a male lion for example, but instead of being a ferocious symbol of pride and confidence, maybe you were given a male lion guide because of his other not so flattering attributes which could be interpreted as laziness (leaving all the lionesses to do all the hunting) and maybe loyalty/ trust issues (male lions don't really pick one mate like a wolf). Maybe, you were given this guide as a symbol of your flaws/ troubles in life, and so he may teach you to overcome them.

Is this the case with each guide we are graced with, each a symbol of our weaknesses and how to conquer them, or are they symbols of our strengths and how to use those strengths to conquer our flaws? Maybe, it is some combination of both of these things, or something else all together. In my opinion, I think who we are or who we have the potential to become has something to do with our guides. Either way, I don't think they are what they seem. After all, where as a beautiful golden lion might be more exiting then a frog, a minuscule amount of a tiny poison dart frog's poison can bring even the so called king of beasts to his knees.

I am the last person who anyone would expect to have powerful, popular guides like the tiger and wolf, but I think I am uncovering more and more of the elements of both animals that make them my guides. While both are courageous, both are top of the food chain predators, which can translate at least in my case to pride and the flaunting of their position. Pride can cause any person to over look important things, beautiful things, be they simple, every day mundane things, or something much more extraordinary that can either way lead to demise.

Now, with my understanding of why I am guided by wolf and tiger just beginning, I have two new riddles to puzzle out, fox and coyote.

symbol of the dragan also Ently, I thought you might have an answer as to why I keep sensing and seeing a medium sized-four-legged animal/human faced and scary to look at its usually at night when I feel uneasy about what I am sensing but when I see this it makes me feel scared by the looks of it more then anything else it just appears on all fours and looks up at me and I glance at him then it goes away, sometimes I sense and see this human animal during the day.

[at] symbol of the dragon hahah breathe fire? Don't be skeptical about one tier of abilities and believe the others! Trust me manipulating elements in the "earthly" realm is a lot harder than on higher realms in my dreams I can pretty much cause natural disasters if I wish but in the "earthly" realm I sometimes can barely make a breeze so I understands your skeptic view but please take into consideration that it's a difficult ability to progress through. Sorry for rambling just want you to understand that it does exist!:)
Peace

For
All we know the Anti-Christ is the master of deception and
Manipulation, and he is going to use "destruction" as the means to
Reverse Humanity's faith. Maybe the deception will be, he is the new
Savior.

[at] Mubashir:
I don't think there will l be a literal war if the Anti-Christ comes.
More of a metaphorical war. People will more and more start losing
Faith in the Holy Trinity, and that is how the Anti-Christ wants a
Change in world order.

If it is of use here, I have these psychic "abilties", and they started mostly last year too. I can see auras, and what I think are spirits (first as just shadows, but now more and more in form). I feel the ground floating and kind of hollow days before an earthquake around.

More like a script, in deep black color. Maybe Hebrew, or maybe kind of Arabic.

About the pyramid and an eye. I read about it in a book I have. I bet you guys know about the free masons, the pyramid and the eye is their symbol. If you guys don't know about free masons, then you should know that they are actually antichrist\ God organization that will start war against God. I have been thinking about it for a long time and some points came in my mind out of nowhere. First the pyramid, I think it resembles the bermuda triangle the place where a very strong evil entity resides or either its the golden mountain over which humans will fight. As for the eye, its a very powerful and dark evil that will stir great chaos in mankind making them believe that he is a God. More like he will manipulate human faiths and free masons will aid him in this. Well that's what I feel and think about it. If you guys have better point if views, then do share them. Who knows someone actually come up with the best explaination and reason.

I should have explained better; I don't mean that what you saw and the pyramid on the dollar bill are the same, I meant that there is some powerful symbolism behind the pyramid. And thus by showing you a pyramid, maybe a message is being sent to you involving things that the pyramid represents. Because it's based on triangles, a pyramid could be a symbol of the holy trinity (I think that's what christianity might see it as and why a pyramid was put on the dollar bill).

What did the symbols look like? Hieroglyphics? Hebrew?

I did not see that triangle. I saw a big, three dimensional pyramid in gray color. It had script-like symbols written all over it. It was last year, but it was so lucid I still remember the picture clearly.

Maybe...the dollar bill has the eye of province which is supposed to represent the eye of God above a pyramid. Apparently the "all seeing eye of God" goes back to the egyptians. The pyramid represents the colonies and growth of the U.S.

I see the "eyes" thing and the "swirls" thing. I had a vision once of a gray pyramid with symbols scrawled all over it. You say it's an "Egyptian" eye. You think it is related to the pyramid?

your welcome, but I'm not a gifted person in these powers and things. I like to think I know a lot about them, but there's a big difference between knowing and doing... I can't tell the future or spiritually teleport to other places, or control any element (which I'm very skeptical of people being able to do in the earthly realm any way; I'll change my mind when I see some one breath fire with our props.) But its nice of you to say so. 😳

dragon, I wanted to answer your question to the portal, nothing goes through or comes out all the visions are passing in front or it in slow motion sometimes quick, I also think the portal is suppose to be clear since its a chakra in that way we can see clearly, perhaps its a way to know if the chakras need healing or cleansing... Just a feeling I get because its constantly there and it may be the third eye that we enter or seeing from the outside in... The images I think stem from the psychic penal gland? So good to have these strong views and opinions out in the open... Thanks again!

hey dragon, those were all interesting points, it means a lot coming from a gifted person I'm sure you agree, we can learn from each other no matter how old and young we are age does not exist! The visions that we see are similar, great a step closer... We need to research the portal, thanks again 😁

To Martha:

I also see a sort of portal, and recently I have seen an eye as well, gold egyptian looking with green energy coming from the iris. Oddly, swirls are also a very common sight for me... I wonder if they represent chakras or a kind of stair case? I really don't know what that portal may be... Are the shadow people and animals going to and from the portal? If so, maybe it's some other dimensional location? A place of collective memory? A place where memories of your other lives are?

PEME, have you tried the Shaman Drumming, I find it very easy but when I am tired or too relaxed I catch myself falling asleep then refocus into the upper section of my eyes which would be the brigde of my nose once there the port-hole appears is how I explain it to be...

when I meditate my eyes are closed and also looking up into my third eye... After a minute I begin to see like a port-hole surrounded by darkness and the center is purple I also see dark shadow people figures passing through along with swirls and a white face sometimes appears for a moment also 4 legged animals (large) and sometimes a glimpse of an eye, this is happening while I view a played out scene... My question is what does all this mean? Is their a message? Dragon need your input...

They may not all be warnings some may be messages. No worries. You will know what to do when it's time. I'm not good with dream interpretation. I always just pray or meditate when I don't understand something and the answer always comes to me. But I know your fustration. Just keep trying <---- Advice sucks but its true. I remember trying different life purpose meditations and visualizations I would always not see anything or stop then one day I kept going; I got so excited I lost focused and stopped again. But, eventually got there.

I really want to know what all of these dreams are warning of though, before they happen, other wise the warning it's self doesn't do any good. When I meditated (or tried to, I'm terrible at it) on the question, I kept getting images of a red mountain with a red sun which turned into a really creepy man's head setting behind it. Then a tunnel, the area around it's mouth was decorated with tiles like a mandala, but I wasn't able to go though it (pretty sure because of crappy meditating skills).
Last I saw a star made of silver with a yellow stone in it's middle hanging on a leather cord.

Is this some "beware of rape" or "betrayal by future boyfriend" warning? I'm beginning to freak out. 😨 😭

lol! You are so right. I'm a total goofball in my dreams. Too funny. The funny thing is when 'it' happens you'll know exactly what that dream was a warning of. I have found a lot of my so-called preminitions were warnings or preperation for what I was about to experience so I would be ready. Reality always shifts a little from my warnings. I don't claim that as a gift but I will say I toyed with doing it at will as a teen and I stumbled upon the fact that when I think really hard about a question; I'd dream the answer. This happened for first few times accidentally. First day of school, clothes laid out, new hair style I was just so excited. Dreamed I was walking down hall and greeting friends etc. I don't remember the details of the dream but I remember the deja vu moment when I saw the same scene and kids coming towards me in hall. From then I would try to do this at will with all sorts of things. Sometimes it worked sometimes it didn't. But, whenever I had the MAJOR preminitions they were always warnings.

Also, because this site doesn't allow people to publish dreams, I must do this this way... Please give me some feed back.

This dream started with blind panic. I was running through a giant (and noisy) industrial chicken farm, chased by something. I rounded a corner and blocking my way was three massive wolves, each about the size of a small horse. The one who appeared to be leading them was one of my spirit guides, appearing as a human. He told me to wait, that he just wanted to talk to me. Something in the back of my mind was like "oh, hey, it's one of my guides." But for what ever reason, people (in my experience) become idiots when they're dreaming, so I just ran back the way I came.

I dashed out side in a last ditch effort to escape, but unfortunately I ended up in a paddock (plus I was losing steam and trying to out run wolves which was destined to fail anyway), so the three wolves and my spirit guide (also a wolf, but he kept a human shape... Maybe so not to freak me out? Which failed to, due to my own apparent lack of a brain when dreaming) ended up surrounding me.

My wolf guide was pretty displeased (very ticked off looking), no doubt for having to chase me around a giant chicken farm. I was so scared I fell on my rear both from the terror of seeing him angry and also because his form, though still human, had changed. He wasn't a completely different person, he just seemed to have changed into an older and very beautiful version of him self (early twenties? Mid twenties?). I'm not sure if it was because I started waking up a little at this point so my brain scrambled things, but his ethnicity seemed to have changed from extremely pale caucasian to latino or native american.

He stopped five feet from where I was sitting in the dirt with my heart in my throat, and I asked him why he was chasing me. As I said I was waking up at this point so he didn't have time to properly explain any thing, and just said

"because you are going to be my bride."

And about that time I woke up. I have had similar dreams since.

I have a friendly relationship with someone whose father is a shaman from Mexico, thus she is very good with giving answers to these kinds of questions. She told me that she doesn't think my guide literally meant to mary me, but that he is trying to warn me of something, trying to prepare me for something; the question is, what?

I really wish guides would make more sense...

I guess we really don't know that our guides are our guides. It's just a fact on what we experience and what information we are able to access, but that's the same with all facts isn't it? At any moment, we might discover something knew that turns our world as we know it on it's head.

I do think guides are here to protect specific people because so many people it seems see them around, and they appear to be helping us. They give us information through dreams and meditation, they are unquestionably here to influence. Whether they are really here for our benefit or not is the real question I think.

And of course as you say, everything means to a person what their cultural lens has taught them to see. Of course we form opinions on things, but largely at lest in the majority of people all our views on beauty and cuteness are based on what our cultures have taught us to perceive.

I also think that there is kind of some sense of universal laws, or rules, of right and wrong, like killing.

"Is this the case with each guide we are graced with, each a symbol of our weaknesses and how to conquer them, or are they symbols of our strengths and how to use those strengths to conquer our flaws?" They're 'smybols' of what you want them to be. If anything nature reminds us we're all connected and need each other. You can be the strongest leg in the world but try walking around without a foot!

You ask the most provocative questions, I love it! Free thinker! You have the power to change the world! We need you. Keep rocking those "realities". I too and am working on being a more free thinker (lifelong journey you know) and I love you and I pose the questions to you... How do we know they're guides? Who says a "beautiful golden lion" is more exiting than a frog? The more I'm open and learn of my gift the more I realize it's ALL hmmmmm... Relative, subjective, suggested, interpreted... Words are merely audible sounds that a group of people agree to the meaning. The intent, emotion, and thoughts, etc. Behind them are what makes the difference. A lot of time people can ONLY fathom what they've already been exposed to. You'll find they can only see qualities in others they see in themselves. Maybe you see lion as beautiful golden because you've been presented that it's beautiful golden, golden may not be so beautiful to others... I've learned through my gift to 'look with nothing' so-to-speak.
