what is a spirit guide
My Spirit Guides
Hello, my name is Gary Dakin. As a professional psychic medium, people come to me to connect with those who have crossed over to the Spirit world.
As part of my work over the years, I have come to know and trust in my personal spirit guides who help me to deliver messages with hope, love and confidence.
Spirit guides are gifted people from all walks of life, and although they may not have had high standing in this realm, in Spiritual terms are able to teach and guide to new levels of enlightenment.
It is therefore perfectly reasonable to have an ordinary man or woman on this plane to be capable of extraordinary things in Spirit world.
A Trusted Guide
This leads me to share with you my personal knowledge of one of my trusted guides, Ben, a former slave. Ben helps me when I do my one-on-one work.
I doubt strongly that Ben was an active medium, but I do sense that when he was alive his vibration was one of a kind and that he was a gentle man of larger proportions than most and a man who had come to terms with his place in life.
Born Into Slavery
Ben was born into slavery at the end of the seventeenth century and lived to reach his mid-forties. I do know that he came from the Atlanta, Georgia area – and that he lived through his life in several locations, being moved to where his labor was needed. He has shared images of both cotton and tobacco plantations – and I see that much of his working life was based out in the fields and not within a household.
Despite his difficult situation, Ben found love with a fellow slave and that union bore a daughter – but Ben was to experience great heartache in being separated from his love and child. They would never reunite in life and this loss stayed with him.
Ben had a sound understanding of his place in life and although he worked hard and showed his owners the respect they expected, deep within his being he knew that there were many wrongs around him. In truth, had Ben had the opportunity to speak freely he would have held no words of respect for those that owned him.
Ben displayed a quiet determination to make the best of his situation and to stay and face the toils of his life to the best of his abilities. I see that his fellow comrades in slavery looked upon him as a source of strength and an example to follow. His ability to assist others was a natural part of hisbeing. To his owners, his size and strength made him a valuable commodity – but his spirit and bravery were the inspiration to those suffering the same plight.
I Was Chosen
I am in the privileged position of being chosen by Ben to benefit from his gifts to help me with mine. Ben desires to rise above the prejudices he faced – to help regardless of color or creed – and he views situations in a clear and objective way. He is a man of few words, which I see is a trait from his earthly plane, and therefore his messages are often in a direct style. It has been clear from our earliest connections that he is advanced spirituality and saw his earthly life as a test to overcome, which he did in a noble yet humble manner.
Ben now enjoys freewill and has the space which allows his personality to shine. The shackles which restricted him in life have no place in Spirit world!
