Spirit Guides And Dark Feelings


I'm Alex. I'm an Empath, a lucid dreamer and a beginning medium. I'm turning 17 in a few days and I'm a girl.

Just so you can get a better picture.

About a month ago was when I moved into my current home. Right around that time I was beginning to wonder about my psychic abilities, and whether I had any. I've had quite a few run-in's with ghosts in my old home and in my dreams. So when I moved into this house I made sure I was very aware that I didn't know the houses history, and whether there were any spirits still living in the home. And until last night, I believed it to be just me and my spirit guide (s).

First let me explain that I am very new to meditation and strengthening my abilities. I'm trying to learn new things everyday to help me, and I have a notebook dedicated to dreams I've had, information I've found and experiences I want to write down. I have also yet to "meet" my spirit guide (s). I believe my spirit guide is a woman, but last night made me wonder if maybe I had another spirit guide or maybe it wasn't a woman after all.

The reason I believed it was a woman was just a feeling I had. But it was a strong feeling, not just something my imagination created. When I felt my spirit guide when I meditated I felt almost a maternal protection, and to me it just felt strong and feminine (and still does). Also, once when I was meditating, a picture appeared, almost like it was in front of me but my eyes were closed. They were two brilliantly blue eyes. I opened my eyes and closed them once more and I saw them again. I had been trying to contact my spirit guide when that happened.

But last night weird things began to happen. I felt this bad presence looming in the air, watching me. I still feel it as I type this. Something different. Something that hasn't been here. I felt vulnerable to it all last night. I made sure to imagine myself with a white light around me and repeated the Lord's Prayer and a Serenity Prayer several times, out loud. But when in my room, I felt even more vulnerable. I decided to be brave because fear is what feeds these things. I went in and told the presence that negative entities and demons were not allowed in my home (because I've heard that unless invited they can't come into your home). But I felt even worse, more scared. So I called out for my spirit guide, trying to be brave. I asked him/her to protect me. I asked out loud whether they were with me and I heard a "I am here." but I didn't hear it out loud. I heard it in my head. It was clearly a woman's voice. And it made me feel better but I still left the room and slept someplace else.

When I was almost asleep on my couch, eyes closed, I began to hear a sort of flute like instrument being played. And at first I thought it was this rattly vent we have in that part of the house but it continued to play. The next thought that came to mind came with a picture. I didn't think of it, it just came to me.

Indian flute of some kind. And I saw an old Native American man sitting on the ground, green rolling hills behind him and a robin blue sky, playing the instrument.

I don't know whether the Native American man was a ghost, or maybe a second spirit guide, but I need some answers. I'm not sure what my questions are. I'm just hoping that somebody can explain the situation to me, and help me get over this looming, dark feeling I'm still getting when I'm in my room (and only my room).

Help would be much appreciated!

This story is very weird, and in all of my life I've never heard of a spirit guide until now. I need to learn how to contact one, because I also have the same thing going on in my life as you do.

Best hopes,

How to contact your Guides:

It is important to seek advice from your Guides. Unlike people, your Guides always have good intentions and their job is to guide you. Most can also protect you.

To confirm that you have Guides (and that they are who they say they are) ask them for signs then be on the lookout for those signs. I asked for specific detailed signs which are not easily found anywhere and they shocked me everytime by sending me those exact signs, so make your requests a bit challenging (but not impossible) and they will comply. Do not be scared. Think of your Guides as friends, Angels, etc. Your job is to develop and use your gift and their job is to show you how. Just make certain you only use it for good purposes. Also make certain they are Guides, not bad entities, by only thinking your thoughts to them rather than speaking your requests outloud, and first pray for your top level Guides to come guide you, and verbally outloud banish all bad entities from around you telling them they are not welcome.

Guides or spirits?

It is very important to confirm that they are Guides (who you are meant to help you) and not bad entities trying to attack or manipulate you. Entities can see you and hear your spoken word but cannot usually hear your thoughts, so the first thing to do is to pray for your Guides to protect you and advise you on what to do. As for the entities/spirits you must speak outloud to them to ensure that they hear you and tell them that you only welcome good spirits and ask all negative or bad energies/entities/spirits to leave. This is also important to do when using lettered cards, tarot cards, scrabble, etc to communicate with your top level Guides for advice and guidance. Always confirm you are speaking to them and not to entities/spirits until you are ready to do so.

How to make first contact with Guides:

-First be relaxed and in a location where you feel most spiritual and protected.

-Next in your mind and outloud ask for all negative energies/entities to leave for they are not welcome. They need to be told this.

-Next pray innerly (not outloud). Ask to be protected from negative, bad, evil, or dark energies/entities/spirits.

-Once you feel at peace and protected, pray innerly to communicate with your Top Level Guides. Only those who guide you, care for you, protect you, and are of the white light.

-You will then hear some inner thoughts, which at first you might feel are only your own, but they will catch you off guard because you will know you yourself did not think that thought. Reply to it. Listen carefully. Ask it questions. Listen for answers.

-Now at this point you will wonder if you are crazy, and are imagining things, or making it up in your own mind. This is when you need to ask to be sent signs as an assurance that they do in fact exist. They do not mind doing this. They understand. Request a sign which is challenging and not so common so you will know for a fact that it is from them, but do not choose a sign that is impossible.

Be aware and watch for the signs.

Keep in mind that Guides do not always come forward until we know they exist, believe in them, and need them. Even then it might be against the rules for them to come forward. Others like to remain hidden and watch over us silently (sometimes because they feel you are not yet ready for them or to use our powers, especially if you are a teenager). Remember that Guides are on another level and dimension and they do have to answer to the highest power aka God. So be careful when contacting and making unreasonable demands.

Ways to communicate with your Guides:

-Rune Stones
-Asking for and reading signs

To get your Guides to TALK to you in a more physical voice they need to develop this ability just as you need to develop the ability to HEAR them.

Until then they will use whatever other methods they can in which to communicate with you (Inner Thoughts, Tarot, Rune, Meditating, Radio, Signs, etc).

Remember not to pressure your Guides with being able to communicate better with you. They want this as much as you do and it is a two way street. You try more on your end, and they will try more on their end. Teamwork.

alex, a basic book is by Ted Andrews how to meet your spirit guides. Protection is always good to start out with, centering yourself, balancing energetically. But things to note: what do you experience from times past from your guides. Mine just showed up-saying what happened in growth.
One showed himself in a dream. So its not always necessary to meditate inorder to meet up! Some start showing things and it is felt at the throat chakra. Always ask and question, inquiring that they confirm what you believe they are bring through. Blessings

xtjrx; Yes, it's a new living space, but no we haven't done anything as big as the things you've mentioned. I've been careful not to because I've read up on the same thing you told me. Spirits don't like when things are moved and torn down. The most I've done is moved my bed two inches closer to a wall and clean up my room. My floor is now much less cluttered, which you would think would make a presence happy.

PathR; The flute player sounds about right to me. At that time I needed to feel protection and happiness and when I fell asleep I had a smile on my face and felt this unexplainable happiness.

StormTree; Thank you so so so much! You've made me feel a lot better and more confident. I'm so happy to hear that you think so positively of me, because it makes me feel like I've been doing everything right!

Update: Last night when I entered my room I still felt that dark presence. I didn't sense an older man though. I sensed a young child. When I walked around in my room and I felt the presence the word child repeated in my head. Whatever it was I confronted it and told it to go away and leave me alone. That I wasn't scared anymore.
I slept peacefully that night, and this morning and afternoon my room felt much brighter.

I do have another question though. Is there any way I can contact my spirit guides, and talk to them? I would like to get to know them better. Maybe some names, and a small conversation. Lately I've felt a little distant because I know so little and other people seem to know a lot about their spirit guides.

You clearly have excellent instincts, and I think that you can trust your own words. "Robin-blue sky, green rolling hills..." And the man was not looming over you in a menacing fashion. He was sitting and playing a flute. You have not stated in so many words how the magic of the flute affected you, but it seems to have been a comfort. It can be good to have a variety of spiritual supports, and something in my heart is joyful to know that you have both maternal and male spirits watching over you. You are loved and protected.

It is not uncommon for a dark presence to become more ominous when confronted. Babies throw tantrums, bullies flare up, and spirits get loud when they are challenged. This can be alarming, but it does not mean that you are doing something wrong or that you are ultimately in danger. While some spirits can be dangerous, physically as well as otherwise, it seems that your helpers are supporting you right where you are. Your instincts to clear yourself of fear, focus on light, and call for help were right on.

What's interesting to me is that, as you described the invasion of your space, I kept seeing sage and a flute, and I kept thinking of Native medicine. Then I read the paragraph about your new protector. Sage is commonly used in Native rituals for spiritual cleansing. You might want to smudge your house... Burn some sage and use the smoke - first to cleanse your own field, then to clear the rooms, and finally to guard the windows and doors. This sort of cleansing ritual, along with music and prayers, is generally a good idea when moving into any new space.

Rattles. Rattles can be powerful to drive away spirits, as well as center you for a journey.

You are a good spirit with lots of white light around you. You are a young woman who is stepping into the moccasins of a strong woman early in life. I see a warrior in you, and I am proud of you.

Hi alex, it sounds like things are progressing for you. There is a metaphysical theory ref'd to: energy follow thought, by Einstein. If you focus on a shield, or your aura as a shield. Sensing it expanding strong resilant it will be.
But walking in our protection is something we must cultivate by knowledge and understand that fills right to us. So we know!

Sounds like you have more than one guide,
American indians are keepers of our blessed earth. You might look up the Kokopelli Flute player:symbol of happiness/joy. His music flys on the wind and sky to great spirit/elders whom watch and teach. So he played a sacred song of protection. "That is nice"! The neg spirit sounds elderly and do not forget us older folk can carry a lot of emotions. So this is my filling you speak of. You could help the spirit move on by looking to some old ways of your guides, look at his example-send joy/peace/happiness to him, create a hill with peace, encircle this spirit, ask help from spirit to speak and move him on... Blessings p.s. You could use herbs/with prayer

Alex: Perhaps seek the wisdom of a local indian shaman. Look up a tribal indian council in your phone book. They may be the most efficient way to give you the guidance. Based on what you have said, I don't feel like this spirit is dangerous. Indian spirits are often very powerfull, and can give you the clear impression that they are serious. I'll never forget being 8 years old with my parents driving from chicago to california. We stopped at an indian trading post. I was walking up the steps and I saw who was clearly a tribal elder. I will NEVER EVER forget the way that man looked at me-even right through me-so I am bold enough to say I cn relate to the gaze you describe.

Hi Alex: So... This is a new living space for you right? And you say it is specific to your room yes? You've been there a month, and just felt a new presence, and you aren't sure about it's intentions?

Have you changed anything about the house, or your room? Knock out a wall, expand a closet? Cut down a tree ourside your window? Anything like that? Sometimes spirits are territorial, or make it clear that you changed something, and they do not like it. Unfortunately you may have to do some research on the house/grounds to fully understand what's going on.
