I'm having issues with this. I did a spell to determine my spirit guide and the first time I did it, it was very weird. It revealed it to be a fish. Because it didn't feel right, I tried it again and got a different answer, a dragon. I'm very nervous to try any more attempts with this but I read that when it's revealed there's an instant connection. So what went wrong?
Spirit guides tend to come when they are needed, not just when you want them. Did you have reason to call on one? We can have more than one, or one may appear in different form for the situation. You might look up the meanings of those two that did come. Could mean something that required you to see both forms.
