We all have benefactors and/or guides. We may be more consciously aware of some more than others. We may have no conscious awareness of some. And a few may demand our full attention at times.
There is a session in these conferences where we get to meet one of our guides in a imaginary journey guided by the facilitator.
We can speak with our guide and receive a gift.
Have you considered the possibility that one of our guides is our "higher self"?.
