Interesting question... my personal experience of this, was at a time I was informed I had a guide, I was provided with a very clear place to research
them - and indeed a name. At the time, I confess, I thought it was my imagination running a bit wild - but the info did indeed come from the same
place that 'visitors' tend to drop their projections into... so I gave it a whirl, and pretty much fell off my chair when I found them!
Up until this point, my understanding - all be it, very little, was that spirit guides were often given a name perhaps that we could relate to easily.
However, having had the experience I had - I am left leaning towards they may well actually BE their names.
Obviously, if you feel their presence around you, and they are serving you well, then I am not too sure the name matters - unless you would like
something evidential for yourself, such as I was very fortunate (and incredibly honoured and humbled) to receive.
My advice ultimatly though, and I am afraid it will be the tired old cliche (usually tired and old, because they work well however) - is to trust
yourself... If you're in communication, and you are comfortable, try to ramp it up a little and ask them
- Have no expectations, so that you are
as relaxed and receptive to their answer as possible, and see what happens!
Who knows, they may just surprise you
(I would add the caveat, of POSITIVELY here though!)
As I say though, it may well be if they are here to guide and help you - they simply impressed upon you names, that you felt comfortable and at ease
with. Think what you might do, if you were the guide, is a good way to consider it. I'd just want to make it as easy and comfortable as possible for
my, erm, 'guidee'? Is that even a word?
Great question - I hope I have have helped even just a little, and thank you for your kind words and taking your time to post.
