Spirit Guide?

Although I was not raised in or practice any specific religion, I do consider myself spiritual and have had many mystical events throughout my life. Since I was a child, I've always felt a connection to something larger, a certain security in life like I was blessed with "someone" watching out for me. I could tell stories of incredible spooky-luck just when I needed it...! My interest in the paranormal (everything was pretty much lumped under one catagory at my library) came without influence from my family except from a scientific view (psyics, etc.). From my teenage years to now the number 111 has "followed" me (the term I used without a clue to its' significance) and I often hear my named called when I'm alone.

Recently my focus has been trying to communicate with my spirit guide(s); actively seeking a conscience relationship with her/him/them. I've been watching for signs from my guide(s) and am pretty sure I recently received a sign to which I responded "I'm listening". That evening this happened:

I had been dozing on the couch for about 45 minutes when I awoke suddenly for no reason (all was quiet except for a TV on very low volume) and to my horror my living room had filled with thick, white, billowing smoke! I smelled nothing, but instantly (and still half asleep) I jumped up to find the source. Amazingly, it simply dissipated into nothing in about 20 seconds or so! I know I saw this "smoke"! I'm certain I wasn't imagining it. It blocked out parts of the room! Aside from the initial panic, I was not frightened and did not notice anything else unusual in the room. This isn't the first time this has happened to me but it was definitely the "thickest" or most concentrated its' ever been and it lasted longer than the previous incidence. The first time this happened was about 8 months ago and it (the "smoke") was concentrated mostly over my lap. That time I thought I had fallen asleep with a cigarette.

Recently I came across a thread on ATS regarding "static" in vision learned about the medical conditions that could cause it. Maybe this an optical condition?

Does anyone know about this "smoke"in either context? Should I see a doctor (I feel fine!) or is this another mystical event in my life?

Hey there Anna Kronism

You might find the article I wrote about 'how I met my own spirit-guides' interesting ... it might help you to recognize the signs too.

Just click the link to my website in my signature below this post (it's a non-commercial site and there's a link on another page that will bring you straight back to ATS when you're done)

i couldn't say one way or the other...

but in my experience(s)
i have the more than occassional 'cloudy' or 'fuzzy' vision, which seems to 'creep up' on me...

maybe its tired eyes, maybe its being in a AC environment, but it is not directly related to just waking up...

i only suppose your 'smoke' is similar to my experience/situation, as the condition is very subjective.

in any event --- I do not put any weight into the esorteric explaination,
where other worldly beings or spirits are causing an influence on my senses.
but thats just me...

happy trails

Please go here

Read this lady's book called "Betrayed be her spirit guide".

It might just save your live....

Thank you for the link to your story and pics. It is very interesting and I will most likely post the same question on that site, too.

Although I see the mist in your photographs, it isn't as intense looking as what I experienced in my home, Maybe because it was taken out doors?

Interesting story, nonetheless. Do you believe this is a guide, a wandering spirit, or an earth spirit?

Spirit guardians are very real. I'm sure one of mine tried to evoke an OOBE once.

We all have our spirit guides aka guardian angels. Caught somewhere in the ether of global consciousness. They are most real.

"I'm sure one of mine tried to evoke an OOBE once. "
(sorry - I haven't learned to pull text to quote another member....I'll learn today!)

So, Angry Potato - Would you please describe your experience? Are you thinking this may have been an attempt to pull me OOB for a connection on that plain?

I've had OOBE's and once I was over the fear of it (and asked for guidence) found it exciting although I felt a bit drunk....banging into things, so to speak. I don't recall any mist or smoke but I wasn't really concentrating on contact with a guide at that time.'ve got me thinking in that direction, friend.

Question to jpm1602: Are you saying they are one in the same (Guardian Angles and Spirit Guides)?:

I have read that they are different entities.

As for the smoke. Your guide might be trying to gain your attention.

I have communicated with my guides for over the past ten years.
My daughter can see and communicate with her guide. What is freaky is she can see and talk to my guides as well.

The best dream of all the dreams I have ever dreamt happenend around a few months back. I've posted it before, but I feel compelled to post it again because it's ownage.

So there I am, all asleep and stuff and then a dream commences.

I find myself in a vast field with short grass and plenty of hills. The grass was a very light green, and nothing was around me. There was a fenced of area that wasn't actually fencing anything off at all. A little patch of grass had been boxed off by this fence. I look around the iron fence and discover a padlock. I thought this was extremely absurd, and devoid of anything meaningful. I climb over the fence, and then climb back over it again.

Now I'm walking around and stuff and then I hear a voice. It was a nice, soft female voice and it repeated "I love you". Over and over again the voice plays on, and I try to find out where the sound source is. I look to the ground and find some sort of electrical device or a switch or something. I don't remember what it was, but I think it was blue. The voice had turned off and I proceed to float up to the sky. I look down to the ground level and a puzzled looking bipedal wolfman character looks up at me.

All of a sudden, the dream disappears and then turns into sleep paralysis. My eyes are closed, and I'm vibrating intensely. I then appear as my astral self and I am floating up towards my bedroom ceiling. I try to shake off the sleep paralysis, but to no avail. I open my eyes, but they only open halfway. You could probably say I was caught in two worlds. When I opened my eyes (halfway, mind you) I would get out of my astral form, but they'd force themselves closed and I'd continue to float up to my ceiling in my astral form. I go to cancel out of it again, but then my eyes shut again. This time, though, something different occured.

You know what your vision looks like when it's a sunny day and you have your eyes closed? That red colour? Yeah, well, I saw that and a new little addition. A big, white orb then came in from the left of my vision and then I saw myself floating up toward the ceiling again. After that, though, I just managed to cancel it and resume sleep. The next thing that happens makes my heart feel all warm and fuzzy.

Probably around 20 minutes later or so, I'm asleep again. I have another dream. I'm back at a field with the same colourings as the filed in the previous dream. I'm walking around trying to get somewhere. I end up seeing an extraodinarily beautifiul girl, around my age in front of me. She had an old fashioned bike with her and was amazing on the eye. She was at least 6'2", had a nice tan, long blonde hair and deep, mysterious blue eyes. Her eyes showed a lot of knowledge and intensity. She was heavenly. Anyway, she was wearing an old fashioned blue dress and had a name badge that some mormons have displayed on them when they do their door-to-door routines. This leads me to believe that she was a symbol of wisdom and guidance.

Disoriented, I ask her something along the lines of "Do you know which way I can go to get home?" She looks me right in the eye with the beautiful pair of eyes she had and softly replies "Sorry, I'm afraid I'm not sure. I'm not from this area, and I cannot help you".

Then out of nowhere my mum walks up a bank to the area where me and the girl are and congratulates me on being able to see the dead. This struck me as really strange. The girl still looks at me with her deep eyes and continues to smile at me. The dream then dissolves and I feel very content (no, it was not a wet dream).

I believe that the girl that was in this dream may have tried to invoke the OOBE, or she is my astral guardian. She may have been the orb that had floated in my closed eye visual. I don't know, but she displayed benevolence. Her mesmerising eyes held knowledge and mystery and I could just tell because of those eyes of hers.

Please tell me how your guides gain your attention, more specically how did your guide begin communicating with you? Was it a dream, feeling, voice or vision or something tangible like a certain animal appearing at odd times or a song? How do you know it's a guide and not coincidence?

Can anyone help me understand how to identify signs from my guide(s) during times I'm NOT in a meditative state? If this is was an attempt to gain my attention (the "smoke") and I flailed around looking for its' source rather than recognizing it, maybe I've blown it! Oh No!

Angry Potato: your dream sounds incredible! Beautiful! You said something I find intriguing and had not put together with contacting a guide but rather the onset of an OOBE and it happens so often I'm sufficed to say ALL THE TIME!

You said you were "vibrating intensely"
Gee...I never related that to contact/communication. It usually occurs when I am awakened suddenly for no (apparent) reason. - like the times I saw the "smoke"- I was vibrating then, too! I thought it was my body trying to "catch up" with itself since I had just awakened.

I feel this vibration when I dream what I know are NOT "just dreams". I experience the euphoric feelings mentioned in Angry Potatos' post that last long after I'm fully awake and remember details down to the blades of grass. My grandfather comes to me in (lucid?) dreams and I navigate them with a certain control of myself; with an awareness while they are happening. I consciously seek symbols and ask specific questions and never forget even the slightest details of them.

I'm starting to think I may have a guide who may feel like they are talking to a brick wall - you know, like having a really krappy charades partner.

You might want to read this book.

She is the reason I started talking to my spirit guide.

I started the communication with my guides. I get "flashes" of information in my head. I wish they were lottery numbers or something.

I don't believe in coincidence. I believe in synchronicity and that everything happens for a reason. I have the 11:11 phenomenon as well. That is another tread alltogether. I think that is a tool for communication. Just what and why, I really don't know.

Nice dream Potato.

& check out she has a vast library of information.

Hey there Anna Kronism,

(YOUR 'VIBRATION' POST); You just answered your own question !

There are many ways to determine contact with spirit-guides / guardian angels / dimetional entities etc. It sounds like yours is vibration ... mine is a high-pitched ringing in my ear. But above all it's just a 'knowing' that you will come to recognize with experience.

I'm always advising people to keep a journal of their experiences because it's the best way to pick-out repetitive signs (images / words / symbols / colours) etc.
