Spirit Guides & Spirituality


I am intrigued by this entry by my friend pansyfilmmaker. It seems pretty obvious to me that he was visited by his spirit guide. I am equally intrigued whenever sistercoyote or akirashima talk about their own spirit guides. Actually I haven't been this excited about anything spiritual in a long while. Now I am ever so curious - perhaps this is an avenue I should explore. Hmmm.

So, while I'm at it - quiz time! :D

I know i had other guides or more like friends that were spirits when i was a kid. I always saw them my entire life and coming from a family where that was not uncommon it was years before i realized it was weird Though i was for a time convinced by my stint in Fundamentalist Christianity that they were evil.

I still remember my first visit from Coyote Very Very well
Maybe someday if want i could tell you about it

The readers digest version
Back in about 90 i was laying on my bed and was wondering about my path in life as i dozed off. As i drifted off I fell deep into hyperreal state. I could feel with all my senses. As i got up off my bed i walked outside and all the landscape was Black but the sky was lit from myriad stars which all moved slowly but much faster than they do now. Occasionally Lightening would flash and illuminate the landscape and My sister (who was in the vision as well) and I saw something hideiously deformed and stalking around the base of the nieghbors house. My sister gave chase and i felt it was delt with so i went back into the house and laid back down on the bed. Suddenly i realized she was in trouble and i felt my breathing and heartrate change. My body felt like liquid wax and i realized i was laying on my back which felt entirely wrong. I rolled to my side and saw my hands now feet pointing away from me and finally got to the floor on all fours and i realized i was no longer human. i ran from the house and carried myself fast to where my sister was and tried to help her with her fight. I remember i could not completely help her but i did what i could and after the fight was done i walked home. Which was weird because by this point i could feel my body waiting for me there. When i got back i I jumped up on my bed and melded back into my body. Where i woke with a start and mud on my hands. Standing above me was Coyote who placed a paw/hand on my eyes and told me i was not done yet. BAck into the deep hypereal state i went. This time i was alone in the woods with a stone medicine wheel around me and demons (at least thats what i thought at the time) were dancing around me. and i kept yelling at them i am in the circle you cannot touch me. Along came coyote holding a civil war era sabre. (whoa that just sparked something but thats for later)
Anyway while i was screaming they could not pass Coyote steped in and shoved the sword through my neck and told me "All are a aprt of the circle of life and all can walk in it" and he left as did all the "demons" I was suddenly surrounded by friends i highly respected that were well versed in this type of thing and they all tried to remove the sword but it was always right back there. Then i was in the woods and Coyote told me it would stay til i found the person that could pull it out. I remember a bright light like the sun coming up and it formed into a person that tried to remove it and they could not and neither could the earth mother. and then i woke up quickly and breathing hard and sweating heavy. I had a pain in my neck where that sword had come in and for a long time after til i met the person at Pennsic (say it is not so) i could see it and severla people who had that beyond sight could also see it. As to the soemthing that i stumbled on there in the retelling I found out last year i had a realitive during the civil war who's name was Theadeaus. ..... Weird

however, REAL Burmese do not consider it to be Myanmar, they still call it Burma because the military gov't took over against the people's vote for Aung San Suu Kyi who is under house arrest quite against the people's wishes.

Sounds like all my Vietnamese friends - none of whom are from the North. Vietnamese unified? Like hell! The South Vietnamese flag is still proudly used, and I don't think I've ever seen the (unified) Vietnamese flag anywhere.

I have an amused dis-interest in spirit guides. Comes from hanging out with Neo-Pagans in the late 80's and everyone was hunting power animals... You couldn't have a conversation without someone having a claim on the "Big Four" Bear, Wolf, Eagle, Raven. it got very... tiresome. Well I've spoken to all of the above when they bothered to notice me and just as happily ignored them as well. Spirits are. I don't find them particularly interested in guiding me or even having sensible things to say most of the time. Neither do I find them hostile or scary. Or friendly.

I will say that several animals have been associated with me by other people: Koala, Otter and Black Bird. No one can tell me if they are connected to me because of who I am or if who I am is led by the Spirits. Hmm not saying it correctly

I see what you're getting at, and it's an interesting point of view. Whenever I hear of spirit guides in the context of dreams and meditations, however, there clearly seems to be an effort to lead the person to something, whatever it is they need at the time. "Disinterested" isn't a word I hear used - in fact, yours is the first I've heard.

Very interesting!

Have you thought that maybe your spirit guide has all-ready chosen you? After all, people do call you Moo.
