In this episode, Teal explains what spirit guides are, why they are here and how to communicate with them. She explains that a spirit guide is an incorporeal being who is gaining personal expansion and benefit from their intention, which is to assist in and learn from another being’s physical life from their specific (more objective) vantage point. It’s a mutual symbiosis. An invitation and Acceptance.
Teal discusses the five basic types of spirit guide:
1. Your Higher Self
2. Light Bodies (what many call angels or ascended masters)
3. Archetypal Guides
4. Ancestral Guides
5. Animal Guides

Run time: 17 minutes. Normally, I tend to sit back and absorb whatever metaphysical types like Swan have to say. This time, I felt a huge amount of resonance and synchronicity; enough to feel compelled to write some of this down. I’m too lazy to mark down the minutes, but I will keep my notes in sequence to the lecture.
I think I chose to come into a place of relative poverty. This is something that comes up a lot in my various methods of minor divination.
I must have been a real hell-spawn when I was a boy, because I attracted some of the worst demons you can imagine, all the way up to my mid-twenties. I believe I was cursed either from birth or shortly after birth, most likely by my stepfather’s family. The reason being that I was conceived before my mother met that man, and his family resented me from the start. My abusive stepfather was also a very demonically tormented man. The demons in my young life first started to manifest to me, that I can clearly remember, took place when I was ten years old. After over 40 years, I think I have finally shed those darker entities off and am finally working with neutral and positive types.
I’ve never experienced any beings of pure light.
I believe I am here to learn, to decipher, to philosophize, to pass on what I learn, and to write really cool fantasy stories. I think I am passing on what I see and hear to beings in another dimension, or to my Akashic Records, where these beings are studying the news I bring.
This idea that all that exists in the universe is already knowledge, and that we have to tap into that knowledge, resonates very strongly with me. Everything humans create first begins as a human thought. Under Hologram Universe Theory, there is a quantum server set up, and our minds, which are not reservoirs of knowledge but only keyboards, must type in the right commands in order to access that knowledge. To me, that sounds like a collective of all the Akashic Records that have ever been pooled together, or we are tapping directly into the mind of the Construct, or possibly even Source.
At times, I fell I have an affinity with the spirit of my grandmother, who passed away when I was close to thirty years ago. This is a rare sense, however. Most of the time I feel I have been left alone or abandoned by my spirit guides.
My guides totally set up signs and synchronicity, to the point that I can now recognize inside jokes between them and myself. I agree with the statements that guides set things up for inspiration and meeting others, even in the dream state.
Thought creates energy. This is a very important truth. This is how bad guys amass power over the weaker minded. This is why the masses are kept in fear and subdued to The Powers That Be. This is also how curses work, past all the mumbo jumbo and exotic preparations and rituals.
I guess I am occasionally / seldom a physical intuitive. I used to get a lot of hunches and deja vu of where to go and what to do, and who / what to avoid. This sort of intuition has dropped off a lot for me, to be replaced by the same sort of advice from my dreams, both regular and lucid.
I am greatly lacking in emotion. I am a very reserved person in general.
The description of spiritual intuition matches me best. It feels as if I read a book many years ago, and when certain situations come up in my daily life, my mind refers back to that book and tells me, here is what you should do about it.
I don’t like rituals. When a person cannot focus well, a ritual with several complex steps helps to clear the mind and to narrow down the focus so one can get on with whatever the purpose is. If a person can jump into a blank state of mind quickly, and move on to meditate or dream or whatever psychic pursuit is aimed for, the ritual is unnecessary. This is how remote viewers increase their skills. They go through their rituals, but when they have gotten an RV mastery, they leave the rituals behind and jump right into their tasks. The biggest problem I see is that too much attention on ritual makes the ritual more important than the objective. This causes Mystery Schools to crumble under the burden of what becomes their dogma. Masonry is a good example of this, in that you have to get past 30 levels just to see the end of the playing field. The spiritual aspect should be started up early, as it is in Shaolin Buddhism.
As Swan suggests, I do create a safety space in my apartment, and I set an intention that only good entities / positive energies may enter. I’ve done this in my place for three years now and feel I’m doing pretty good at it. Every so often, a negative entity / demon will try to come in through nightmares or manifestation, but I can always thwart them and drive them away, even in lucid dreams.
I’ve asked my spirit guides to show themselves for ages, but they refuse to. They are as defiant to hide as I am stubborn to see them. Their behavior is contrary to what nearly all spiritual gurus say it should be. My spirit guides distract and divert me, so much that I don’t think they are all that much higher than I am. If I see their true level, I think I will compare that to my level and will quickly size them up and be their equals. Take that as you will, but I’ve tested my guides in many ways and am fairly certain when I say that.
I have been given some names through meditation and automatic writing. They are Amon-Ra, which is nearly the same as my given name of Ramon. This may have been my code name in an ancient Mystery School. I also visualized the name Sturgis or Stoorges, which is apparently some ancient name of mine from before I began to incarnate. The Amon-Ra name resonates highly, while the name Sturgis is a big blank for me. I don’t think either name is false.
Swan describes imagining a black slate. This is how I begin my automatic writing. I do open myself up, objectively and receptively. Initially, I would see one word at a time, with an occasional image or a rare symbol. As I got better at it, I would see a string of words like on a ticker tape, one word after another in a smooth flow. There were times when words would run together and I would miss one or two, or when I saw multiple words with the same meaning. There were also times when I saw an incomplete word and had to add in letters, and I would go back later to make sure it was in context with the rest of the communication. By the tone of the writing or the emotional tone that accompanies the words I see, I can sense the difference between speakers / dictators. I’ve never had to switch hands.
I’ve never been able to do astral projection. I have interacted with real people in lucid dreams, and met those people months later.
We are never alone. However, if we are self-centered or negative, we will attract self-serving entities. At least, that’s the way it works with most people who are not cursed like I was. I have always been a good guy, but I have been tainted so much by negative energies that it has become like a second aura around me. I figure the best thing for me to do is to pay less attention to the negative and more attention to the positive until the bad energies are shaken loose and finally drop away. Maybe they will and maybe they won’t, as I have tried many different tactics, including from multiple religions, in order to get rid of them. It is almost like a drug recovery program, where one is clean as long as that person stays away from drugs or alcohol. For most people, the Dark Side is miles and miles away. For me, and despite that I am a Service To Others good guy, it is right over my shoulder. Through my auto-writing, this has been described to me as a symbiotic relationship, as if I’m growing a second head on my back or something like that.
Anyway, it is what it is. Be happy, do good things and think good thoughts. Your spirit guides should be right there for you when you need them.
