Communication is generally telepathic, clairaudience with archetypes and visual imagery, clairvoyance, observed during meditation, dream time, or just learning how to focus, look and listen to messages received. Some people call this method of connection, channelling. The more you practice, the easier it gets.
The number of spirit guides one has various within that person's experiences. The strongest connection is with the aspect of your soul referred to as your ‘twin flame’- dual aspects of a soul, above and below, programmed to seek reunion to feel complete, oneness. The twin soul reference to 'spirit guide' remains with you until you rejoin when leaving the physical body.
Spirit guides can go by many names. Often they connect with more than one person at a time, using identities that are comfortable to those they communicate with.
Each guide generally comes to you for a specific purpose - creative abilities, healing issues, spiritual development, etc.
Some people will attract negative experiences and blame it on their guides or dark forces. Not true in most cases. Guides are there to do just that - guide you to the positive. If the voices in your head confuse you, place you in conflict, and drive you crazy, please seek professional help and get evaluated, especially if you deal with substance abuse.
Many great men and women have accredited their genius to the guidance received from spiritual influences. For example, the pianist Liberace believed that, at times, he was paranormally inspired. He owned the piano, which once belonged to the classical composer Liszt. "When I play his compositions on it, I have the most eerie feeling, as if I'd played that music before in another time." And just like Liberace, Lizst was a flamboyant dresser.Lucille Ball believed that she received help from the dead actress Carole Lombard. Jayne Mansfield also received spirit guidance: "The woman I admire most, Ethel Barrymore," she said, "spoke to me. Then my Aunt Kathy, who had been dead these 15 years, talked to me and her voice was exactly as I remembered it. Aunt Kathy always had a great sense of humour. She still had." Jayne also held séances in Rudolph Valentino's former home, Falcon Lair, and received guidance from the "dead" silent-screen legend.
Sports men and women have also said that they sometimes feel guided by the spirits. Donald Campbell, the former British car and speedboat racer, believed in life after death. He spoke on a number of occasions of feeling the presence of his dead father, Sir Malcolm Campbell, with him in the cockpit of his boats and rocket cars. As he sat in the cockpit of the Bluebird and prepared to achieve his 648 kph (403 mph) land-speed record on Lake Eyre salt flats, Australia, he saw his father's spirit. "He was crystal clear and looked down at me with the half-smile on his face I knew so well," wrote Campbell.Then he heard the spirit say, "Well, boy, now you know how I felt on the morning of September 2 at Utah in 1935"--the day his father burst a tire at over 480 kph (300 mph). His father's voice encouraged Donald Campbell. Like his father before him, Donald became holder of both the water- and land-speed records.
Perhaps one of the most intriguing comments about spirit guides was made by Sir Winston Churchill who said "I have a feeling that we have a guardian because we serve a great cause and that we shall have that guardian so long as we serve that cause faithfully."
