Getting To Know Your Spirit Guide
by Sylvia Browne

For a while there, it seemed that the popular trend was for everyone who consulted a medium to get the name “Running Water,” “Standing Bear,” “Silver Fox,” or something like that for their guides. Now I’m not trying to dispute the fact that there may be some Native American spirit guides, but it just seems that during my many decades of research, I would have encountered one of them. However, as with everything else, if you do hear a name, roll it around in your mind, see if it feels right, and then use that name – or change it, as I did with Francine, my own Spirit Guide. Just do whatever feels comfortable to you. Even though it makes it more personal to call a guide by name, I fully believe that it doesn’t matter what you call them – as long as you do call on them.

Some guides will appear to us as children when we’re kids ourselves. My son Christopher, whose guide’s name is Charlie, came to him in the form of a little boy and grew up with him. Francine, on the other hand, and grew up with him. Francine, on the other hand, always seemed to be about 30 years of age and stayed that way. This is somewhat aggravating to me, since I’m now much older and she’s still 30!

I’ve done enough research to believe that given my childhood (which featured a somewhat absentee mother figure), Francine took on the persona of an older and matriarchal person, while Christopher, who had a strong mother figure (me), might have chosen to have his guide be a helping buddy. In fact, imaginary playmates are spirit guides 99 percent of the time. Guides will come in as children to make it easier for their young charges to learn from them.

Sylvia Browne is without question, "America's #1 Psychic," an internationally known psychic and medium.

Dear Sylvia, Ever since I was a child I have these dreams about this white man who on one instance put a bag of gold under my pillow, or just visited me in my dreams. And always, always I feel so happy during the dream, but when I wake up I feel sad, lonely and angry. Now I know why. I think he is my spirit guide and he has always been with me ever since I can remember. Especially when I was in my desert period. I once hear him calling out my name. I would love to know what his real name is. Thank you for teaching us about life and the other side. Thank God for directing me your way. Ellen

Dear Sylvi, I was privilaged when you picked my video for the web cast on November 19, 2008. I was never so excited. Regarding my question on my son, you gave his spirit guides name, how wonderful, he was so excited when i told him. I now wish i knew mine. I am still trying to get in touch with mine, i guess i must be doing something wrong. But i will be joining your next web cast, maybe i will be so lucky for you to answer that question. I love you very much, you are so wonderful! you set my heart at ease. Thank you so much sylvia..Love Monica god bless!

My Spirit Guide's name is Anastasia. I'm psychic(though I'm not sure if it's my life theme), so I've been doing readings for quite some time now. Anastasia is theatrical, full of life, and even sarcastic. The other day, I was feeling a bit guilty about a situation with my friends. I asked my Spirit Guide, "Should I feel guilty?" She said, "I don't know, SHOULD you feel guilty?" It's obvious that our guides won't just give us the answer to all our questions, and also that they truly have a unique personality(just like us.) Mind you, I'm sixteen years old, and I have never in my life doubted the existence of The Other Side. Sylvia's right--we've been there before, and we're back here on Earth for learning.

i don't know who my spirit guide is but sure would like too. i don't think i've ever felt anyone around me. i know as a child i use to daydream alot, i would be looking at a catalog from sears or something like that, and when i found a page that really caught my attention, i use to sit there staring at it until i was that person. it was very intense, i did it for hours every day. i could'nt stop myself from doing it no matter how hard i tried. i guess i concentrated on it so hard that my body legs and feet would move and i would fiddle with my hands. i did'nt know i was doing it, until my sister or someone would see me and say "joyce what are you doing?" i would be so embarrassed i would just say "nothing" and they would tell me to stop fidgeting. i don't even remember how old i was when i finally stopped doing it. but it sure was a great escape. from joyce

By Hannah, wed, nov. 12 I had a very vivid dream with my spirit guide. He asked me about my accomplishments lately and what I've been up to. I told him not much and that I was waiting. Then he put his arm around me and said; that's why your so fascinating to me. He welcomed me back later to talk some more but I can't remember another dream. I wonder what he's been thinking.

i was listenting to your cd that came with your book, contacting your spirit guide, and you said that there are dark people that do not have a spirit guide. i was wondering if you could tell me if i have a guide and if so, what his/her name is. i also don't remember a lot of my childhood, but i do remember being able to know things before they happened, how can i open those doors again. i also have a hard time with visual images when trying to meditate.
