Psychopomp

|

By Morningbird

The word psychopomp literally means “guide of souls”. It derives from the Greek psychopompos or ψυχοπομπός

Psychopomps guide souls through the spirit world and into the afterlife. They may guide living practitioners through the spirit world as well and assist with astral projection. Many Gods and spirit creatures are considered psychopomps as are quite a few mundane creatures including several species of birds, horses, dogs and rabbits, varying by culture.
