little background before my question: There are two types of
meditations I do. The first is the official, lay-on-the-floor, meet
your guides in the meadow kind of deal.
second kind I just started doing a week or so ago. It’s where I kneel
before my altar, meet my guides, then say a quick good morning or
good night. The first kind is much longer than the second kind.
I am doing the second kind of meditation, I’ve notice these shadowy,
human-like figures (in the place where I meet my guides) making a
semi-circle around me but a little bit away from me. To keep their
distance I suppose, plus I also haven’t officially met them yet.
reading sopherielspeaks’ blog, he mentions that when you encounter an
entity you can say something like “…only
let those who come in light near me” to help you feel protected. I
thought that was good advice so I incorporated it when I say hello to
these figures because I don’t know who they are and have no idea what
their intentions might be.
are between 4-9 (with an average of 6) shadow figures when I start. I
will greet these figures, since I get the feeling that they are
here for me. But when I greet them, I will say something along the
lines of, “Hello spirits who are around me who come in
I’ve noticed that between 2-3 will walk away or disappear when I say
my salutations to them. After the first couple of times I tried to
reach out to them, to just feel
them, not to talk to them (I know I’m not ready to talk to them). And
they’re all pretty neutral or positive feeling. But even the few who
turn away are still strongly neutral feeling. (Note: I don’t
interact with spirits. I’m more of an energy person.)
when they turn away their attitude is not like, “Damn, I can’t fuck
up her shit today.” It’s more like me putting up a metaphorical “No
Boys Allowed” sign. They turn away with shoulders slumped, like,
“Aw, I can’t be by her today,” or even “I guess I’ll go somewhere else.”
Like they’re saddened or disappointed.
guess what I’m trying to say or ask is, even if I feel that all of
the shadowy figures are neutral or positive in feeling/attitude, why
is it that some of them walk away after I greet them and say my
little bit? I don’t think
any of them mean to harm me.
spirits be neutral towards a person yet not be able to be near them
because of the person’s warding? Also, can a spirit be positive
toward a person but not be able to be near them because of that
person’s warding? Also, if this spirit is supposed to be near me,
like be a guardian or a guide, why do they walk away?
is it not them but the wording in my greeting?
this kind of turned into more than a simple inquiry, but if you have any ideas, I’d be very interesting to hear.
