I read about Spirit Guides from the paranormal books and some articles on the web and I would say, I'm really interested to meet my guide. Not knowing, I already had it since before but because of the experiences I had, then only recently I realized I have one.
One of my vacations in my home country, I decided to buy a CD on Psychic Development. I have been experiencing paranormal ever since I was a child but I wanted to have the right direction to open up my 3rd eye so I bought the CD. At first I was hesitant to listen to it but after I got enough courage then I started listening and practicing the exercises (tracks 1 and 2 are the explanation of different psychic abilities and 3 and 4 are the exercises).
The track 4 is quite longer than track 3 and it has a verbal chanting, either you say it and shouts it to the Universe from your mind or you say it verbally, depends on your choice. Last year, can't remember which month, when I was doing the guided meditation from that CD, I chose to say the chanting verbally. It goes like, "I call out to my spirit guides and masters, asking you to help me open up psychically and become a channel for the light". This phrase has to be repeated, I think, 10 times... Then before reaching the last time, I saw an image of a lady (like I was watching a clear movie), a beautiful one, the color of her skin was like an Asian but not dark, her hair is black then suddenly, there was a man, almost like twin of the woman, having shoulder-length hair, wavy black, like that of Tarzan's hair. I felt excited but got scared too and I eventually did not finish my meditation, was not able to close it by going back to the steps and just opened my eyes.
As a flashback, this experience I am about to tell you that I realized later on correlated with my Spirit Guide happened way back about 2 years ago (before I saw my Spirit Guide) inside my flat here in the U.A.E. One evening, I decided to clean my bathroom / toilet as I am getting irritated already because of the limited time I have since I am working. Usually whenever I clean the whole flat, I put on lively music but that day, I chose FENG SHUI music, some kind of instrumental, if you're not familiar with it. My energies were high that time and my CD player never skipped tracks (what a miracle!).
After finishing the other parts, then I faced the floor, put cleanser and started scrubbing it then I washed everything but I closed the door for awhile because the water will spill. Suddenly, I heard a knock on my bathroom door... The worst part, I forgot what day it was and thought it was Thursday (boyfriend day) and I thought maybe my boyfriend came and I didn't hear him enter my flat. So without thinking, I opened the bathroom door slowly then even went out of it but I didn't see anyone... Then I thought, was it a ghost or the one so called "spirit guide"? Also I'm thinking, maybe she got upset because I closed the door and she could not hear the music if she was inside the bathroom with me, maybe she likes it. So what I did, I rewinded the scene. I knocked at my bathroom door from the outside but seem that the earlier knocking was done from inside the bathroom.
From that time on, that incident never occurred again because whenever I clean the bathroom (afterwards), with or without music, I simply ask permission when closing the door and give simple explanation why I am closing it.
In another incident, one day (late last year), I was feeling creepy (not because of my spirit friend) and I was having goose bumps on my head and felt that somebody touching me, like having a hairy hand... So what I did, I got the salt, sprinkled it around. After 20 minutes, the creepiness continued. I called my sister and ask if she has any suggestions about this thing, she said, I should light a white candle even a tea light will do and sprinkle sage on the floor of my flat. That's what I did.
In the evening, I put on my ritual candles (tea lights), 2 near the door (of course with protective holders) but I put sage on the inside of the candle and so with the tea light inside the bathroom. I went to sleep. I was already in dreamland when I woke up suddenly (around 2a.m.), as if somebody woke me up then I saw one of the candles near the door had a pressure on the fire that reached 1 foot high. I wasn't dreaming then so I got near it and checked what's causing the pressure because it had sound too. Nothing was causing, it was just abnormally like that. I got the water sprinkler (the one I used to wet my clothes when ironing) and sprinkled water on it. I was examining it but I couldn't see anything. I checked the bathroom tea light but it was off already. The other tea light on the same table where I found the pressured one was still on. So I just switched on the light from the bathroom door and put off the other candle on the table then I looked around my flat thinking that I might see something but nobody there then before I slept, I said my prayer to God and thanking Him, my Guardian Angels and my Spirit Guide for watching over me. It's good I had presence of mind and I was awakened at once. Till this day, I am still figuring out what made the fire on the tea light go with pressure...
There was one more incident where I heard her voice behind me. One night (last year in October 2007) I came back from a far grocery and reached home around 9:30pm and was carrying around 9 bags of heavy groceries, I was too tired so usually in the night whenever I reach home, I would just first switched on the light near the door and since the bags were heavy, I went straight inside, then when I put down the bags, I heard a woman's voice and said something like this "shidish" (or may be shadish). I didn't get scared but I got very surprised so I rewinded it (I always have that habit so to make sure my mind doesn't play tricks on me) because I thought it was the sound of the plastic bags. So I lifted the groceries then how I did it earlier, I put them down, no more sound of the lady. I did not look around but I went to the switch of the fluorescent light (my flat is just a studio type so everything is near).
Then come weekend, I told my boyfriend what happened (I could not say it on the phone that night, I was quite nervous too) and told him about the word. He said, that word, shidish or shadish is a Russian word which means something like this "come, take a seat and rest"... Isn't that wonderful, at least even I'm alone in the flat, somebody is there to take care of me.
There are instances too that whenever I wash clothes and would cook rice or just to reheat my food at the same time, my Guide will always do something to get my attention in case she knew that I have forgotten; I left something in the cooker, either she'll make a loud sound or will try to bump on me or touch me or anything or call my name (she did that earlier)...
The story never ends here and I would say that every now and then my Spirit Guide would always make her presence known especially when I am in deep thought of something.
