Sorry this might be a little long but in the following I'll type out some different experiences I've had ( mostly none were malevolent that I can really remember clearly--most being neutral or helpful/caring/positive atmospheres/auras )
I don't know if it can be multiple spirits over time since I move house a lot and I don't know if the ones from the other places might follow me around and then dissapear or not ( since I have felt like some would get in the car with me or follow me around/ show me things like a deer outside my house or interesting things in nature whereas I had no real purpose to be there in the first place ) And lately one has showed me an Aligator being my power animal, and by that some people I've talked with have said its my Spirit Guide.
But can you only have one "Spirit Guide" or can others communicate and show you things as well? How can you tell them apart? I've never been able to see faces IRL or even in my dreams: I appear faceless let alone everything else is a grayish, faceless or shifting figure. Once I even had a dream about a square table with 4 or 6 of them or so and they called me out of my room and made me sit down and they promised they would try to help me find myself?? And since 2011 ( when I had that dream ) I guess you could say there actually have been major changes of my self-perception and general awareness, but could that also just be apart of growing up?
Wondering if anyone can help me with identifying and communicating with these beings and as well as other things that may help with establishing a clearer relationship, etc?
our spirit guides can change over time, as we grow and learn another guide will take over your development however our main guide(gatekeeper) never leaves us, they stay with us until we go back to the spirit world as for animal guides they will always change so one day if am feeling low i will have a lion or if am feeling happy i may have a monkey with me
if you see lots of guides sitting around a table then the chances are that will be your learning team and there showing you this in dream state as the veil is thinner when we sleep allowing communication to take place as they would be unable to connect with you during waking hours.
i hope this explains things a bit for you
I regards to guiding spirits, one can have numerous different ones thoughout their life-time, and more than one at a time, depending on the theology and cosmology one believes it. Some people believe in a fetch or guardian angel that never changes, due to it being a reflection or apart of the persons soul. Others state that totems and spirits independent of the person are guides.
Bonnie, A spirit guide is an entity that guides a person.
I had been told that my spirit guide, or creature, is a spider. They seem to follow me around at times, (I counted eight just in my hallway) a spirit guide is a animal or person that leads you through life helping you and guiding you (hence the name spirit guide).
haha maybe I've had a spider as well, I know they're everywhere but I never have been bitten by any of them, despite going through the woodlands where I grew up. And I had my hands into everything... but not one encounter with anything like a funnel spider or a wolf spider or other.
