Start to practice with your own spirit guides. Before "summoning" anything, you need your spirit guide, or higher self. Meditate, and ask your own spirit guides to be with you, maybe a message or perhaps vision. If you listen, maybe some words will be heard, but in the mind. This is a safer way to make contact.
Pheonix that is true, you would like to have your spirit guide with you at the summoning. While doing magick and summoning entities, the ones that say they are harmless, are usually harmless. It depends, do you get any certain emotions when it talks to you, happy, scared? You may want to ask it, its name. It may be anything from a grimore to a dead relative.
i know it isnt a spirit guide, or a dead relative as one of my spirit guide is a dead relative. it wont speek just watches. i've tried bannashing n it just comes back. it doesnt scare me. i just know its there n that is it. it just a pain as i find it hard 2 concentrate when i dont know wot it is or why its here
