There’s this myth that you have to know your spirit guide’s name.
And, it just isn’t true at all.
Sometimes, rarely, you will get a name. If you are American, this name is often something really plain, like Bob, or really fancy, like Ashkar, or St. Germaine.
If you get a name, great. Go with that.
But if you don’t get a name, don’t spend another moment worrying about it. Our spirit guides are real beings, who exist in other dimensions, who have the ability to work with us in vision, symbol, language, and emotion, in order to help us with our understanding of the ineffable All/One/God/Universe/Source.
They are like translators for us, using systems of understanding that are familiar to us.
They are much more interested in helping us receive a vision of an eagle diving into the sea, for example, that helps us understand our life’s purpose, than they are in giving us their names.
It’s not easy for us, as humans, to receive these visions fully. The guides seek to give us what is most important: the vision and the understanding, in the limited time they have when our concentration is strong.
The thing is… our concentration is pretty limited! Our guides aren’t going to waste it on names. They want us to get to the juice, the core, the essence of what we need to know about our life and our path. Names aren’t a priority.
Let go of the need to know your spirit guide’s name. If it happens, great. If not, focus on the more important aspects: what your guide or guides are bringing to you, for your higher understanding.
