The existence of non-physical beings fascinates mankind. We continue to be intrigued by the presence of spiritual entities from other realms, planes or dimensions. It is an aspect of our spiritual experience that is often the focal point for much discussion, speculation, debate, and even controversy and conflict.
There are many similarities in the range of experiences and encounters reported. The most commonly sited encounters include the spirits of family members who have crossed over, as well as guardian angels, celestial guides, elementals and also extraterrestrial beings. However, there is also much disparity and contradictions in that which people see and believe.
Such beings and entities do exist for me, not because I experience all of them in the same way as others do, but because there are many people who have these similar beliefs and experiences. From my perspective these manifestations of spirit are all one and the same thing, and they all come from one and the same Source.
Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earth. Unseen, both when we wake and when we sleep.
All life forms and inanimate objects, throughout the Universe, consist of pure energy, which vibrates in different ways and at varying frequencies. We are all products of this one stream of positive, creative energy. It is an all-encompassing force of goodness, well-being, pure love and eternal expansion.
However, when I do readings I do experience spirit in a more familiar human form, when its appearance will be more acceptable or recognizable for the person for whom I am doing a psychic reading. Spirit has the tendency to reveal itself in a form that each of us can more easily relate to. Many of my clients are more open to receiving guidance or messages from their deceased grandmother, instead of a transparent cloud of tiny light bubbles! Therefore these messages from ‘heaven’ are delivered to me in this format, which I can then convey to the other person in a recognizable way. I also see my main guide in human form from time to time, because I feel the need for it at the time.
For this reason, it is common to find that your perception of what a spirit guide is, or what angels look like, would differ somewhat from the next person; and should you ask a foreigner, from a completely different cultural background, you would either find that they have no knowledge of the existence of such things, or they will describe them in a form completely unfamiliar to you.
Their true form lies far beyond our current ability to fully understand, being somewhat akin to complex geometric patterns, incandescent like fire-works. But angels do take on forms that we can grasp. They do this for two reasons: so that we can perceive them on a level closer to our own; and to veil, or step down, the intensity of their vibrations so that we can endure them.
This leaves us with the question of lower vibrations, such as ghosts, shadow people, vampires, succubi and demonic forces. Do they exist? These manifestations are no doubt a reality for many people. However, these things do not exist in my world. I choose to place my focus and intention elsewhere.
I know from personal experience that we are all powerful creators of our own reality and destiny. What we focus upon and what we believe in, is what we ultimately perceive and experience in life. I choose not to surround myself with negativity and evil, neither do I entertain the lower vibrational patterns associated with fear, despair and death.
However, I do not stand in judgment of those who do believe in evil entities or dark forces. If believing in an on-going struggle between good and evil provides you with a familiar platform from which you can launch your unique spiritual expansion, I cannot see why such beliefs should be condemned by a fellow seeker.
Expansion and continued creation is dependent on diversity and individuality. It is my conviction that when one is in pure vibrational alignment with spirit or Source, there is no need or desire to judge, criticize or discredit the spiritual experiences or beliefs of others.
