Ways Spirit Guides May Appear To You

Hi Friends!

If you are expecting to see a Spirit Guide in the flesh, as a solid substance the way you see a physical person, you will overlook the ways they commonly make their presence known. Here are some of the ways they may appear to you:

Out Of Body Experiences – If you, through meditation or lucid dreaming, come out of your body, you may be able to see your Spirit Guide as a translucent image in the room with you. This is because you will be looking at them from the vantage point of your Spirit, rather than your physical eyes.

Flashes of Light – Commonly, Spirit Guides may show themselves as sparks or flashes of light. If you see these flashes of light, take note because your Guides are letting you know they are with you. You can see these flashes of light in your daily life, sometimes right in front of you and sometimes out of the corner of your eye. You may also see bright light or flashes of light in your meditations.

Inward Viewing – In a previous article, I described a technique to see your Guides when your eyes are closed. Once you have practiced seeing with your 3rd eye, or psychic vision, you will eventually be able to see your Spirit Guides on your internal mental screen when your eyes are open.

Outward Viewing – You can see Spirit Guides in the room with you sometimes, but in my experience, they appear as projections from your 3rd eye and cannot be mistaken for physical people. It’s as if your 3rd eye shines a special light that allows you to see Spirits. The Guides still appear transparent, and you know you are not seeing them with your physical eyes, but your physical eyes are open.

Other People – Sometimes Spirit Guides may appear to you through other people. One time I had a question I kept asking my Guides, and then a person in my life came up to me and gave me insight about my question. With my psychic vision, I could see the bright light of my Spirit Guide talking through this person. It was as if my Spirit Guide was using this person as a puppet to communicate to me. This has happened to me several times.

Spirit Guides may appear to you in these ways and in many other ways. Keep an open mind and be on the lookout for signs that they are with you.

In what ways have your Spirit Guides shown their presence to you? Let me know in the comments below or on my facebook page.

    Hi Jade,please help me out. In a meditation,i was given a metallic symbol like a pendant. It was a big circle with 7 small circles evenly positioned around it and with 7 triangles also perfectly touching the outer side of the small circles……..what does this pendant mean?? thanks,
    Kassi

      Hi Kassi. Mark, I’m not sure what that symbol means. Usually, if I’m stuck on a symbol I’ll do a google search for it. If you’re looking for a picture of a similar pendant, you can click on “images” in Google search to just view the image search results. If you don’t see it there, you might want to ask your Guides for help figuring it out. You might come across the symbol in your daily life, find it in a book, or maybe someone will give you a pendant that looks like the one in your meditation. I also suggest looking up each individual symbol – I’d look up pendant, the number 7, triangles, and circles. Find which meanings sound right to you. Then, look at all the meanings together to see if it makes sense to you or conveys a message that is helpful to you. For resources on symbol meanings, check out my post on symbols in meditation –

    I don’t think you should discount seeing spirit with your physical eyes. I actually DO see my spirit guide as a solid being, but it took decades for me to master that skill. It’s an amazing experience!

      Hi Pattie, My intention with this article is to help people who are just beginning to see their Guides, and I’ve found that almost anyone can see them in their mind, but (as you said) it may take longer to see them with their physical eyes. That being said, some people see them right away with their physical eyes and not internally. It just depends on the person, the way their intuition works, and what they are open to or believe in. 

      Whenever I’ve seen my Guides with my physical eyes, no matter how clearly, I’ve always been able to feel that I’m seeing them as projections with my 3rd eye, rather than mistaking them for someone with a physical body. I appreciate that everyone has different experiences, and I’m glad you’ve shared yours! I think all ways of seeing Guides are valid and no way is better than another. The important thing to me is that people know that they do have loving Spirit Guides who are there to offer assistance whenever they need it.

        Absolutely true. Thank you for responding 🙂

    I saw a male shadow onenight, could it be my guide?

    • http://www.mymagicaljourney.com/ Melanie Jade Rummel

      Hi Alhena,

      I don’t see Spirit guides as shadows. I see them as light. But, everyone has different experiences. Whenever you have an experience like that and you wonder what it is, ask the question in your mind and see what comes to you. You can ask yourself now, “Was that my Guide?” and feel your answer inside of you. What comes? Your Spirit knows if it was or wasn’t, so trust the message you receive. You can also ask for your Guide to appear to you and see if they appear as the shadow or as something else. 
      I hope this helps, Alhena!

    Hi Miss Melanie Jade! I’ve very recently (in the past two weeks) started researching on how to get to know my guides. There is one who sticks out very clearly and he’s very talkative! lol In the past 3-4 days, I’ve learned so much about him, his name, his past relationship to me, where he was from in one past life, religion he practised on earth, etc. I found out most of the information through a dream I had. I’ve been also done automatic writing with him. It’s very exciting and comforting! I don’t know how to explain it, but it feels very natural and peaceful. He comes when I need guidance or need to talk and responds very quickly. It was almost like he was excited that I finally figured out how to communicate with him. lol For almost a year, my husband and I have seen the number 11 a lot, daily, sometimes multiple times a day. We were very in-tuned with that. It just feels like a big step, like a light went off. : ) Very cool and fulfilling! Thanks so much!

      Hi Natalie! I’m so excited for you! It is amazing, isn’t it, how we have an idea that it is going to be difficult to communicate with our Guides, but once we start, it’s so easy and natural! You can ask your Guides for insight about every area of your life. I’m sure that communicating with your Guides will make a big impact on your life! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with me! 

      Lots of love to you!

    My mom finally confessed to me that my father has cancer but he can’t get treatment for it. It is a colon or prostate cancer. For about a month I have seen flashes of light around the house. Normally I get shadows or full on quite views of people but never a flash that makes me think a camera has gone off. Today for example right before my dad walked in I saw it and moments after he was in was almost right behind him than nothing after it. Am I dreaming? Or is there something be told to me that I don’t want to know..

    • http://MelanieJadeRummel.com/ Melanie Jade Rummel

      Hi Chantal, My guess would be that your Guides or relatives who are in spirit are paying special attention to your dad right now as he’s going through this, and you’re probably seeing light from them. It doesn’t necessarily mean anything negative, just that they are there with you all. I hope this helps ease your mind, as I’m sure they are there sending love to your dad, you, and your family.

    Hi Melanie Jade, I just came across your website when searching for information on spirit lights. I sometimes see flashes of light, usually from the corner of my eye, but on occasion have seen them in front or above me. However, last year, just before new year, I saw two dark entities. The first one came out from behind a large board I had on the floor. I thought it was a stray cat that had gotten into my house and started looking for it. It literally came out, stopped, then returned back behind the board, towards the floor. The second one was like a dark shadow, that flew over my head. Shortly after that, I was attacked by 7 guys. Thankfully, the damage was very minimal and I’m perfectly fine. As far as the dark ‘entities’ go, should I be concerned? I am also interested in learning about the flashes of light I see and how I can communicate with them.

      Hi Bernie! My Guides have said to never be afraid or worried about dark entities. They are very weak energy, no matter how scary they may seem on TV 🙂 However, I personally wouldn’t want them in my home, so for you, I recommend doing all you can to raise your energy level and the energy of your home. This may involve meditation, visualizing your home filled with light, saying a blessing or prayer to fill your home with brighter energy, playing happy music, cooking healthy meals, exercising, watching happy shows & movies on TV instead of ones with a lot of violence and negativity….basically anything you can think of to raise the energy level. Lower energy Spirits do not stay long around high energy areas.

      As for learning about how to communicate with the bright flashes of lights, which are probably your Spirit Guides, check out my online course, Life With Spirit Guides: How to Easily Tap Into Loving Support. In the course, I also teach about meditation, raising your energy level, and how to communicate and work with your Guides to help you in every area of your life. You can find out more at http://MelanieJadeRummel.com/LifeWithSpiritGuides.

      I hope this helps, Bernie!

      Many blessings to you!

    Hello! I have been seeing a series of numbers and one of them is 11 and the number 31. One time i was waking up and i heard a clear voice saying, “It’s 11:11 Melia.” and when i woke up my head turned to the clock and it was 11:11 the voice was very clear and it wasn’t one of my own thoughts. A second time something similar to this happened was i was sitting and i was thinking of a number of ways to have fun for some reason. then a voice popped into my head and it said “231 ways to have fun.” i looked at the clock and it was 2:31 p.m. was this my spirit guide?

      Hi Melia! Yes, those could be messages from your Spirit Guides. Many people experience messages through numbers like that, and you may find that over time, different number sequences mean different things to you. I hope you’re writing the messages you’re getting down so you remember them and can learn from them over time. The more you pay attention to the messages from your Guides, the more you will receive!

      Much love to you, Melia!
