I agree, it's not easy to discern what it is you're talking to. I've grappled with that issue myself, and then I read the book "The Siren Call of
Hungry Ghosts" by Joe Fisher, a pretty harrowing book. After you read it, you will stay away from all channelers.
Here's the book in a nutshell: The author, a journalist, stumbled upon a group surrounding a channeling medium in Canada to write an article about
them. Each member of the group had their own "spirit guide" that came through via the medium. The guides claimed they'd been previously incarnated
humans and were now advanced beings to help their "guidees" with their spiritual advancement. Joe soon got hooked and became a member of the group.
The guides told very detailed stories about their past lives, including places, jobs, names of colleagues and family members, etc.
Curious, Fisher traveled to Europe to check out the stories of the guides, but found to his amazement that while the names of colleagues, etc. often
checked out and places, events and dates were correct, the guides themselves had never existed as persons. Back in Canada, he confronted the guides...
and all hell broke loose. All of a sudden the loving, caring, spiritually advanced guides showed their true colors and started turning the other
members of the group against him.
It's a very eerie tale, but the eeriest part is what I found on the Internet. I looked up Joe Fisher to see if he'd written other books or what had
become of him, because at the end of "Hungry Ghosts," he said that months and years later, he still felt like he was being watched and stalked by
those entities. Turns out one day he called his publisher saying again that he felt they were after him, and the next day he "jumped" off a cliff and
died. (Or WAS jumped?)
I myself had a really bad experience with a Ouija board, whereupon I was haunted for months by something that apparently had come through. I got rid
of it, but seven years later, the same haunting started up again... like this thing had just been dormant for a while, waiting for the right moment to
attack me again.
I do pray to the Great Spirit, my angels and spirit guides, and I can always rely on them. I also often get responses -- sometimes in words, but more
often through signs and synchronicities along the way. How I can tell they're "good"? Because they never let me down when I need them, and it's only
about benevolent things and requests.
However, if you talk to entities and they are trying to make you talk to them more often, or tell you that you're special and have an important
mission to fulfill, then you can bet they're the bad guys. Also, if you hear the sentence "Do this, and you can have ANYTHING YOU WANT," they're the
In fact, if they try to make you do ANYTHING at all, they're the bad guys. God and your REAL angels and spirit guides don't want or need anything from
you; they're only there to support you and provide guidance to show you the way. If you ask, "What should I do?" and you get a distinct answer, urging
you to do a certain thing, they're the bad guys. There is no "should," really, only what's in your highest and best interest and that of all
I don't have all the answers, but it's at least something to start from.
