(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Aterm used for a medium’s personal spirit guide, who oversees the coming and going of spirits trying to make contact at a séance. Used interchangeably with “Door Keeper,” this guide organizes the spirits who want to make contact with the sitter(s). He or she will ensure that the spirits are there and will help them, if necessary, to make the contact. The Gatekeeper will also keep away unwanted spirits who may want to contact this physical world but are not directly connected to the sitter. Estelle Roberts’s Gatekeeper and personal guide was “Red Cloud.” Ena Twigg’s was “Philip.” Arthur Ford had “Fletcher,” William Rainen had “Dr. Peebles,” and Ivy Northage had “Chan.” Many times these Gatekeepers and spirit guides are in the form of Native Americans.
