Sorry for the delayed reply, school has been kicking me behind.

I don't have a ton of information myself, mostly just what I originally posted. Although, the responsibilities behind those names are much more expanded than they would appear on the surface, and there is probably some crossover.  For instance, a Healer, Teacher, Knight or Warrior could be akin to a civil rights activist, environmentalist, medical doctor, psychologist, social worker, reiki healer, etc. It depends entirely on their focus.

A Teachers' main concern might primarily be helping/guiding certain individuals to reach their spiritual potential, as well as achieving whatever goal they have in this life, to some greater end.   A Healer would work with certain people to help them heal imbalances in their lives, past, present and future, as well as working to heal certain circumstances that may occur in the world.  Knights are pretty much questers, they somehow receive specific assignments from 'high sources', to protect specific people or resolve certain situations before they get more out of hand than they already are.   Warriors are a bit like knights but more generalist. They're more subtly guided to where they are needed most for protection and help. It's more a matter of 'coincidentally' being in the right place at the right time. Warriors deal with situations as they arise.

All of these duties work on both the spiritual and physical levels, sometimes at the same time. They also work person to person,
within groups, at local, regional or national levels, as well as globally, and Universally at the higher levels. No level is better or worst than another, it's more a matter of scale, experience and specialty.

Does that answer some of your questions?

It does so very much.

But I just have one more question, are these just general terms for say "guardians" of the spiritual sort. Or are these titles from a sect of religion or practice? I'd really like to know if you have that information.

And thank you so much for answering these questions, you're helping me to find the answers!

Each local area has a "committee", made of one representative from each different group. The names differ regionally but the job remains the same. The Guardians are set in place to protect their region however they see fit. They're elected to sit at the head of that area's "committee", and thusly have a seat on a national Council. Originally the Council was created with the soul purpose of keeping Mortals from knowing anything not-so-normal existed. It's changed over time for the same reasons any form of government has. A Guardians job is depicted by their past lives, predecessors duties, and what their designated area needs. Hope this helps, but if you have any other questions, please refrain from posting them publically.

Interesting...where did you get your information from?


I don't know anything about councils or committees, and keeping 'mortals' from knowing about things that are not 'normal' (this council is doing a pretty bad job if that's the case. Since many people have had paranormal encounters, and many more people are starting to investigate the extra-normal side of life more and more). Things are organized differently, there are no regional or national councils. There is a guiding council on the higher Etheric planes, but those with Sacred  Duties have pretty wide latitude and a good amount of autonomy and generally work independently of one another. Unless you're dealing withe a real emergency, you might not meet more than two or  three (at most) such as yourself more than once in a lifetime. Remember, these aren't monks on a mountain-top somewhere, these are people who live in the work, and have lives and jobs and families and friends, just like everyone else. So they also have a stake in the well-being of the world.

But anyway,  the terms are not general names for Guardians. All Guardians come from these Sacred Duties, but most of the people within these Sacred Duties aren't Guardians, which is sort of a separate category. Guardians are able to work on a global or Universal level, although they can also work at a more local level when necessary. Guardianship isn't about control, it's about safe-guarding the free-will of the intelligent peoples that live on this planet. If people willingly give up their free-will in trade for security, power, wealth, safety, etc., a Guardian can't interfere with that, because they are exercising their right of self-determination to do so. BUT, a Guardian CAN intervene in certain ways if they see that subtle control and manipulation are being used to subvert the free-will of others. Or if there is overt violent action. It's a war that has spanned many thousands of years, and one that the Guardians are finally managing to make some head-way in (despite what Those Who Control would have you believe), since there are certain principles by which a Guardian must abide:  Truth, Free-Will, Love (cheesy though it sounds), Mercy (to a point, i.e., not letting them off to be free to do it again), Non-Violent Resolution (if possible, and non-detrimental to Life (usually not possible)), and Justice (not retribution).

Also, these titles are completely independent of any religious affiliation or spiritual practice. The people with these Duties can and do come from many religious and spiritual backgrounds, or none at all.  It's not required that someone have a spiritual or religious background, just that their essence has agreed to act in service of the Living (be they Human or Not) in this world/Universe, in the life-between-lives.

And feel free to ask any question you have publicly. I might (rarely) choose to answer by PM but please don't hesitate to ask publicly as I'm sure plenty of people might have the same questions as you, but might not have the courage or context with which to ask them.

I understand what you're saying, thank you for all the information! Pretty much these are these people's calling, as your saying. Am I understanding you correctly?

I'm more curious about the type of guardian, per say, that is "linked" to a higher superiority. I don't think what you & I are comparing are the same. But close.

You're talking about regular people with a need to protect, am I right?

And I'm more on the lines of a person committed to protecting a assigned people. People assigned by a superiority. Get what I'[m saying?

But thank you for all of your info! It's helped a great deal in my search!

Yes, these are all people's callings. But, all of the SDs are linked to an over (more connected to the Cosmic Intelligence) intelligence (I don't like saying 'superiority', because it implies more value, and the spirit planes don't work on the types of hierarchies that we use here on Earth), according to each individuals gifts and openness (i.e., dreams, precognition, intuition, etc.). 

Do you mean a person specifically assigned to watch over a specific group of people? Or a specific person?

I'm not entirely sure, but I think that that has only in certain special cases for the last few centuries, certainly less frequently than a few thousand years ago. Today that would mostly be limited to very small populations that don't have a lot of modern technology, and have maintained their native tribal ways. Peoples who would really need such help, in a world that is hostile towards them, and have kept in touch with the Spirit World. Mostly cultures whose spiritual basis is of a 'shamanic' nature, especially those in remote areas. But there are always exceptions.

Did you have a specific people in mind?

See, I'm not thinking culturally, I'm thinking spiritually. Let's just spill the beans, say that this group of people is connected in a special way. Each guardian protects a group with something else in common, a tragedy of sorts. Some may be cancer, some may be mental illness, some may be suffering alcoholism. And the guardian is assigned to these people by an intelligence, as you say, because in a past life they were taken care of. And so on.

*inhale*

Does that sound at all familiar to you? Or is it zipping trough one ear and coming out the other?

Hmmm....Protects them in what way? Like a guide in a sort of spiritual support group kid of thing on the spirit planes? Helping them work through the feelings and issues that they weren't able to resolve before they passed? Helps them work through certain issues arising from those traumas in their next lives? That sort of thing?

Pretty much that + protecting them from the evil that they attract. Bad forces feed off of negative energy and they produce a lot of it, so they need someone to sacrifice their energy to help them out.

Knowing that, it brought me to this forum when you mentioned the Knights, Teachers, Warriros, etc. because it sounded vaguely familiar. Fighting off the evil energy that arrised to protect a certain selected group of people.

That would be more the providence of each individuals Guardian Spirits/Guides, which is a slightly different category.  A Guardian Spirit/Guide is assigned to a specific person, and everyone has one or more of them, depending.  They're more mentor/teacher/guide/protector on a personal level, and may be assigned to one or more people within a soul group/family, but not an entire group at once. A Guardian Spirit/Guide wouldn't sacrifice their energy to feed a negative influence, because they also have other responsibilities as well, but they would repel or fight off the negative influence as best they could, and as much as the person they're protecting will allow them to.

I see. So I'm back where I started. Totally lost.  *<:)

I don't know where I should look for the answers I seek, sadly, it's very well hidden and I can't seem to find what I'm looking for.
Ah well.

Thank you for your help!

Give me a more specific idea of what you're looking for. Maybe if we put our heads together we can figure out where to look for the answers you seek.

Okay. Well pretty much everything I just said:
- a "person" assigned to a group (13 people, hence the username) of people that have something in common
- this "person" fights of spiritual danger that these people attract with their negative energy
- the "person" is under the control of a higher being.
- I like to call this person a "guardian demon" because they'[re most certainly nothing angelic.

I've tried looking up guardian demons but found nothing but Goetic demons, and nothing of demons in human form.

I'm not sure if it's demonic but all I know is this "person" abides by the rules of a not-so-good force; can see demons and negative energy/spirits. The owner of these guardians punishes the guardian when they don't do what they're told.
