^-^ Well, anyway when I first came here, I read information about Spirit Guides. I have a few questions, as I tried to contact my Spirit Guide(Which I used Meditation, here: http://www.ghostvill...howtopic=13828)
I felt a weird feeling on the left side of my face, going to my right, and I saw bright flashes through my closed eyes. I opened my eyes when it happened, as I got scared. Is that a normal thing that happens? And, I had another question that I could not answer: How do we know who is our Spirit Guide?
Hi Mizu (means 'water' in Japanese )
I have also sometimes experienced bright flashes when my eyes are closed. The bright flashes might be physical or spiritual. Really hard to say. Do these happen all the time or just at certain times? Try not to be afraid.
The really hard part about spirit communication is separating your own thoughts from the spirit voices. That must be the hardest part. Some mediums actually hear a physical voice, but I think most do not. I hear spirits through what seems like my own thoughts, through impressions, and sometimes (but rarely) through physical voice sound. Over the years, I have learned to tell the difference between my own thoughts and the spirit's voice. But sometimes I still get them mixed up. This was especially hard for me to do in the beginning of practicing mediumship. Try not to feel too frustrated in the beginning. Also please remember that some people are just naturally more sensitive and better at spirit communication than others. But I believe that almost anyone can learn to talk to their spirit guide if they practice. Talking to stranger spirits is another matter. A lot of times I have used my spirit guide as a go between translator when talking to other spirits. Many spirits simply don't know how to communicate with the living. And most living people don't know how to hear spirit voices. Just my opinion, but I believe that spirit guides were specifically trained on the other side to be guides for the living. They had formal education and learned how to communicate with the living and so on.
There are some good books out there that can teach you how to communicate with spirits if you are serious about it. Mediation of course is very important. Living a zen lifestyle is also very effective at helping you become more aware of what is happening around you by living in the moment.
It may take you a long time to start hearing answers from your spirit guide. If it seems like your own imagination and you are making up the answers, that's ok. Just go with it and keep trying. You will eventually learn to tell the difference.
Actually, I get bright flashes if I meditate and close my eyes. What I have on my attention now is, since I first started meditation, if I close my eyes, I get this sort of sensation, as if it feels you were twitching. AND, also, I get chills(even if it was not cold), or the same sensation on my left side of the body, every time I would be calm. (This happened to me earlier, and I felt my seat shaking, and I know that was not me.)
Yes, that is true. I am starting to try practicing, too.
Oh, thank you. I will go try and looks for some books, and maybe even try the Zen lifestyle!
