How To Tell The Difference Between Your Mind And Your Spirit Guide
There are some significant ways to tell when it is your ego mind talking, and not your higher self or your sprit guides. These are going to be outlined general rules for everything involving a spiritual experience.
- If your experience is ever threatening
- or terrifying
- or scary
- or negative in any way
- the advice you receive makes you feel uneasy or threatened – you can be 100% sure that is your ego mind creating unwanted things. It stems from you, your anxieties and fears, and nothing else.
We will touch base on these things, because it is very common to run into when first beginning to communicate with spirit guides. You hear all the time, of folks who have some unsettling experiences, or misunderstand the information given to them, and immediately blame it on their spirit guides.
If your experience is:
- Discouraging, or abusive
- Consists of frightening thoughts or depressing thoughts
- Or has fear, negativity, anger, resentment, false pride.
This means your mind is getting in the way of open communication, and you are creating hostile events.
Your spirit guides are none of those things. That is your own mind.
Do NOT jump to conclusions that your spirit guide is “evil”. They are not, it is only your own ego mind creating the situation to be threatening towards you. Your own mind can be a lot more scary than you think. Please note, that it is so easy to mistake situations.
If you want to make sure you are protected, and make sure they are loving high frequency beings, make sure to read the chapter called “Opening Up A Meeting Safely“. If you have an assumption they are negative entities bothering you, that chapter will give you guided descriptions and explanations on how to tell the difference properly, and what to do.
This is spiritual information derived from a viewpoint of a loving belief, for purposes of following a loving spirituality. I do not believe in evil, there is only fear, which is the lowest frequency out there, which can manifest into very solid things. In a high percentage of negative spiritual experiences, those experiences are not real, and are only our subconscious manifestations of fear.
Fear is the root cause to all negative emotions. For example, fear is the root cause to anger, as anger only comes to exist when a person feels threatened, or any of their personal securities are threatened, or if they are afraid of something. Fear is also the root cause to many physical and mental illnesses, as well as addiction. Fear is promoted in society, by means of the media, brainwashed into its people. Fear is what creates many negative situations in the world. Fear attracts negative events to happen. Likewise, fear is known in spirituality, as the only evil. And fear is: False Evidence Appearing Real.
For the purposes of spirit beings, there are two kinds, high frequency and low frequency. Low frequency does not mean “evil” it means the “spirit being” is vibrating and operating on a low frequency such as a four dimensional human frequency, therefore examples of low frequency spirits are humans that are passed on, that have not ascended into high frequency, particularly ”ghosts”. Look around the world and you will also see low frequency in alive people. I will never advise communication with low frequency spirits, not because it is “evil” but because they are not ascended into the pureness of divine love and have nothing to teach us. Your spirit guides and angels will be of high frequency, all unconditionally loving beings that work for the higher good.
When people report seeing “demons” it is their own minds manifesting fear, as fear is a mental sickness. It is only their own inner fears and shadows. The sad thing is, fear does truly manifest into things which can take on a realness. But anything manifested from fear is not at all strong enough to exist in the presence of love. All negativity and darkness transforms into light, as soon as it is touched by light and love.
I hereby believe any belief which is situated in brainwashing fear towards people is not a truly loving belief. My higher power(s) are loving and that is all.
Even if you still gravitate towards the illusionary realness that bad spirits are real and are to be afraid of, please know that the statistics for mistaking said events falsely are very high. What we can create in our minds and manifest from our inner shadows and fears, is by far more terrifying than any possible “bad spirit”, and that fear and that manifestation is inside you, to be accepted and transformed into light. On your spiritual path, you will come to realize the importance of letting go of your shadows, and transformation, harnessing love, and being in the presence of Divine Love. That you do have to accept and love your shadows, in order for them to be released.
That being said, the many consequences of fear can easily be cleansed away!
So if you happen to have a fearful or negative experience, do not be so quick to judge it as bad. It’s probably just your mind.
If you live in fear of negative things, you are existing in low frequency, suffering from fear, anxiety, and that is a mental sickness caused by the mind, which is not a spiritual cause, though ultimately caused by fear, which is a spiritual problem. The best thing for you to do is self work to release your fears, come to the root cause of all of your fears, connect to your higher power and fill the void with love, as well as seek therapy. Fear does have a spiritual cause – the root cause is usually dislocation from Source, feelings of betrayal from Source, but the answer to resolving this is both taking into consideration the mind, and spirit and body. You must take care of your mental health too.
Whether or not bad spirits exist, they operate on the same low frequency as fear, and both kinds can easily be cleansed away with love. In a situation where you are faced with a fear or a possible bad spirit, you would face it by keeping calm and realizing your inner strength. By taking a deep breath, remaining calm, calling upon Arch Angel Michael, or other high frequency beings to protect you, stay within the divine love of your heart, be courageous, brave, and imagine the situation or object of your fear to be engulfed in a beautiful white light, send it love and positive vibes, think of memories or things that make you feel safe, protected, warm, strong and loved. You can even cleanse yourself and the area, to be rid of low frequencies and negative energies. And you may just come to realize that the situation illuminates itself into what it really is (something positive), that perhaps you had just mistaken your beautiful spirit guide to be something scary. This happens more times than you may think. Our perceptions of things are not always correct, nope, not at all, in fact when you are vibrating on low frequency and in a place of fear, your perception will not be correct. Most times on your spiritual path, you will come to times of having to work on your shadows – your shadows will come to the surface as soon as you begin following a sacred spiritual road.
There is nothing in the spiritual realms that can harm you. Nothing.
Many times when people first get into Astral Projection or discovering realms, or even new spiritual experiences that are new to them, they feel vulnerable, rightfully so! It is the unknown, somewhere you have never explored. Naturally the unknown both intrigues and terrifies human minds. The first time people experience being Out Of Body, it feels different. They are used to their human shells protecting them, so they often feel vulnerable. The only real way to overcome a fear of the unknown is to be courageous - just do it, and also by connecting to your higher power, love, and having trust.
But the truth is, your human soul is more powerful than your body could ever be, and your spirit body harnesses more protection than you can imagine. As long as you can comprehend the possible outcomes you may face, such as the things we have covered, and that they cannot harm you at all, you will be fine. They cannot harm you unless you allow it to, just the same as any negative situation in your life cannot effect you unless you allow it to. If someone says something hurtful to you, you have that choice to brood on it, grudge, or you have that choice to move on. But in the spiritual realms, you have more power than in a real life situation.
We will talk more about spiritual protection and cleansing in the next chapters.
