Hi everyone. I am here to tell you that I officially believe without a shadow of a doubt in my mind that these spirit guides exist. It took a good amount of dreams and incidences that have happened over the course of my whole 27 years on this earth to finally stop doubting everything. I woke up this morning and I can honestly say that all of this is real, we are always being watched over, and that we are never alone. I know that this may belong in other sections of the forum but I didnt know where exactly to post it.
Let me start out by saying that I kinda do have a "gift" (as Roberta had put it in another thread of mines), of remembering my visits to the summerlands in my sleep. I wont tell of them all in this thread but I can tell you one of my most longest dreams(which isnt very long). I can only remember very short "snippets" when I have these dreams. Hopefully with time I can somehow remember more and more.
So with that being said, in my younger twenties I had a dream that I saw a very androgynous woman walking in a building. She looked to be Caucasian, had very broad shoulders, short pixie like hair, and was very tall. It dawned on me at that moment that I was dreaming (lucid as you may call it) and I have always had lucid dreams ever since I was a child. I thought to myself that I must ask her a question before I wake up. I started to lose my sight of her and started to panic thinking I would wake up any minute and finally I turned around and she was standing right in front of me. I shouted out in panic "What is the name of my spirit guide?" She took her hand, placed it on my shoulder, and told me in a very gentle voice to "remain calm and that it is Kristen". Then she was trying to show me something on some kind of display board but I couldnít make out what she was trying to show me. I turned my head and she was gone. Realizing that I am somehow able to stay in this "dream" I noticed a door that was slightly open so I went and opened the door and the light that came out of it was brilliant. I had somehow transitioned to another place. First thing I saw were these little kids playing near a pond or a lake. All of them had full cheeks, happy, and filled with laughter. They were blowing bubbles only the bubbles weren't small nor did they pop like how they do here on earth. They were huge and they stayed afloat in the air. I just couldnt take my eyes off of these bubbles that these children were blowing. The rainbow colors in them was magnified alot more than what one is normally use to seeing on earth. And I was looking at them float up into the sky and I noticed that there were people in the sky haha. Speaking of the sky.. it was golden.. kinda orangey gold. Like a sunset but still bright as if there was a sun.. but there was no sun. There was another lake near where the children were playing and flowers everywhere. Inside this other lake were humongous colorful koi fish. Iím telling you these koi fish would put koi fish on earth to SHAME. I'm thinking to myself that I've never seen so much water and nature everywhere. No roads, no cars.. just one big beautiful piece of land filled with nature. Now here on earth I'm not a big fan of being outside and playing in water and sitting under a tree and exploring nature AT ALL. The bugs and humidity get on my nerves and to be honest nature walks bore me to death. But what I was seeing and feeling in my dream was very much different. The opposite of the atmosphere here. I wanted to stay. I wanted to see more. I wanted to jump in the water. I know I sound like a kid talking about it but it was really just exciting to me. And the thing that gets me when I look back on this dream was that I was alone by myself at this point and yet I did not feel alone. The people there wore either regular clothes like you and I or white robes. The children and younger people I see in these dreams usually wore regular clothes and the adults usually wore white robes. I sometimes find myself looking down to see what I am wearing and Iím sometimes wearing normal clothes and I am sometimes wearing a robe. So its your choice! You can wear anything you want! I then felt myself levitate off of the ground and that was when I woke up. I have had alot more of these visits that I will save for other threads one day. I remember these visits about once a month. Each one with the same plush landscape, lakes, flowers, sunset sky, and I'm either levitating or flying. I wish I can remember them in even more detail but I cannot.
So lets fast forward to now when I contacted my spirit guide last night. I had a friend that I would speak to everyday about spirituality and life and he has told me that he enjoys these types of conversations with me and that he sometimes never wants these conversations to end.. so everything seemed happy and dandy until I got into one of my moods. He called me and I told him that I did not want to talk and that somehow led to a conversation about my trust issues. He was telling me how great of a person that I am and how I needed to share that with other people and not close myself off when I get scared. I knew that what he was saying was correct but I got defensive and said that its best if we not talked anymore. He seemed shocked by it and inside I'm thinking that wasnít the right thing to do but we hung up the phone and I prayed last night asking for my guide to visit me in my sleep because I needed some guidance.
Now here is the climax of what I am trying to tell everybody. That night when I went to sleep I had a dream where I heard a womanís voice speak to me as if she was speaking mentally inside my head but I could not see her face. She told me that I need to continue my friendship with "him" (my friend) , because he is in great need of my spiritual help at this moment in time and that he needs my guidance. I couldnít remember much of what was said after that and it all became a blur. I woke up later and I heard the same womanís voice say "hello Bianca" which is my name . I heard it as if she was right next to me. My heart skipped a beat and I looked around my room and just laid in bed for a few minutes thinking about what just happened in my dream. I soundly went back to sleep and when I was driving on my way to work this morning I'm thinking that even though I was given the advice to re-connect with my friend that maybe he was too mad at me and wouldnít want to speak with me. So I had already made up in my head that I wasnít going to say anything and view this as another lesson learned. Then all of a sudden I received a text on my phone from my friend saying that he already misses talking to me. I was blown away and in shock!!
So after I finish posting this I will apologize to him and tell him about my dream and guidance I received. You never know how much of an impact you are making in somebodyís life whether you realize it or not. I canít believe that even when my guide gave me advice I was so close to still ignoring it out of my own fear of rejection.
The afterlife is alive and well my friends. Pray at night to remember your dreams and visits.
