In a recent article in New Dawn Magazine (Vol.13 No.2), we are told about the experience of Olga Kharitidi who was taken into apprenticeship by a female Siberian shaman called Umai, high in the Altai Mountains. It says: Later she (Umai) tells Olga the “greatest secret.” We have the task of constructing two things while we are in our physical lives – the physical reality in which we live and the creation of ourselves. Keeping the balance between the two is a very sacred and demanding art. Every human has a Spirit Twin, or Spirit Guide, who inhabits their inner space. There are seven kinds of these Spirit Twins: Healer, Magus, Teacher, Messenger, Protector, Warrior, and Executor – one who makes things happen.
My experience is that while our twin spiritual counterpart may appear as being separate from us, our goal is to reunite with this part of ourself and become one. When the two become one, we are complete and at peace. Hence the need to love ourselves - all parts of ourself – unconditionally. Keep in mind that, if you haven’t met this Twin yet, “it” is right beside you, within the electro-magnetic sphere of your being, and your Spirit Twin also has the goal of integrating with you.
Says Umai, “One of our most important tasks is to learn the identity of our Spirit Twin and then to integrate ourselves fully with it.”
