spirit guides; guardians of my spirit

I have many guides and guardians.

Carrying the locket of my tao.

Raven is my animal spirit guide.

He taught me to speak from the heart.

Braid the ribbon of understanding

into my hair.

Feel the power of nature that can

make my spirit strong.

My guardian angel worries about me.

Cries the same tears in the same lonely corner

when I am sad.

When I need protection from those

offering smiles to hide the lies

she spreads her wings

like the full moon blasting out of

the stormy, cloud-shrouded sky

The raven guides me

Helps me understand my dreams.

My guardian angel keeps me

Safe from misspeak.

I have many guides and guardians

My raven and angel

teaching me and guarding me.

The time I spend with them

Enlightens and secures me.

    What a lovely write, Phylor. The raven guide really took me back to a brief time when I had the only good therapist, among many crap ones. She had me write down my dreams, and I still have a couple of poems wherein either the Wolf or the Bear came to me in my sleep–fascinating.

      I think spirit guides tell us about ourselves and give strength to find your tao.
      I think your therapist was a good one. Dreams reveal much.

        Unfortunately that therapist died of cancer, or I’d probably still be working with her.

    Fantastic. I found my spirit guide to be a female black panther. She gives me a great deal of strength.

      A spirit guide knows what you need in your life. A female black panther is an interesting one.
