We are all spiritual beings and those of you who are reading this have physical bodies. We are constantly surrounded by spiritual beings without bodies and: they are just like us!
They are good, bad, ugly, funny, unhappy, morose, etc. depending on their past experience and they have all of the attributes and idiosyncrasies that anyone else can have.
They are not necessarily higher level beings, no matter how much you wish they were.
Your favorite spirit guide may be your great grandmother who is still looking after you or someone else who just happened to take a liking to you.
Yes, some of your spiritual companions used to build pyramids here and on other planets, but others have been thieves and outlaws for many generations. The reasons a spirit wishes to hang around you and give you advice about life are many and varied, so you should be willing to “be” them and communicate with them to see if you wish to recruit them or just help them on their way to a new life.
If you wish to treat them as superior beings, many of them will accommodate you and respond to whatever name you call them. I have spoken to several “Saint Michaels”, a Beelzebub or two, and several Lucifers. They were all quite easy to chat with and each had interesting stories. They could all tell me when they picked up my clients and what they were doing to protect or manage the person.
More usually, I get to chat with grandmothers and other departed family members who are guiding their descendants through life as they did when they were alive.
You can even get some Viking Warrior who is giving you the strength to go berserk when life gets too frustrating. One can easily get addicted to the fierce certainty that occurs when one of these warriors takes over. Watching others quail before your wrath is almost intoxicating but when the Viking fades away, handling the painful aftermath can be quite costly in terms of broken relationships and lost jobs.
What these beings do is to add their emotions to ours in times of stress or great need and the results can be quite spectacular or horrific or even embarrassing depending on the spirit you have woken up.
You best approach to handling your spiritual companions is to communicate with them often and to recognize when they are trying to communicate with you. In this way, you will learn to work together toward common goals and life will be so much easier.
