What is a Gatekeeper

A GateKeeper is an over-zealous over-protective aspect of your consciousness, a lower spiritual guardian or ancestral god-parent assigned to you by your Conscious Higher-Self. I’ve found that nearly everyone has at least one guardian or GateKeeper on duty, 24-7.

A GateKeeper guards the transition between the conscious mind and the Conscious Higher-Self. They are often the first to share where you are stuck and why during a reading.

Each GateKeeper protects you from accessing your Conscious Higher-Self either partially, fully, permanently or prematurely. It protects you from getting information before ‘it’ believes you are not ready to receive.

Why may you ask?

The concept of having a GateKeeper seems a bit ironic, but they materialize at that point of injury or trauma to protect you from further pain or harm. A GateKeeper manifests as a defensive strategy to protect us at that moment, from the mindset you had when you needed to process what just happened to you.

The problem is we tend to cling to the story, believing the experience itself is what caused the harm, wearing the tale like a suit of armour. Remember, the GateKeeper arrives to validate our experience’s duality until that moment when we move forward into our fear/anger and process a new outcome based on our truth.

This type of guardian is an aspect of your Conscious Higher-Self governance over your conscious self until you come of age spiritually. One day they will not be there anymore. Or you will find a replacement has arrived to move through another aspect or lesson of self-connection.

GateKeeper Roles:

  1. The Protector – from perceived harm, real or imagined, in the moment or the threat of ongoing
  2. The Concierge – doing, doing, doing – the busy disease
  3. The Resistance – resist at all costs new information that might lead to change
  4. The Saboteur – break it before it gets broken
  5. The Self-Deprecating – hiding behind shame
  6. The Imposter – fear of failure, fear of success
  7. The Insignificant – lack mindset, there is never enough thinking
  8. The Arrogant – keeping everything at a distance, intimacy
  9. The Undeserving – lack consciousness, never good enough
  10. The Negotiator – master of strategy
  11. The False Optimist – hope is for the hopeless
  12. The Negator – cup is half empty
