Did you have an invisible friend when you were a child? I had an invisible dog friend. Mum says I had a real lead for my invisible dog and he went with me everywhere. I also talked to trees and still do as an adult. I no longer have an invisible dog, but I do talk to animal spirit guides and a few times recently, I felt a few of my old dogs around me, especially Jumper, who passed away just over a year ago. That was a lovely feeling. I was sitting painting and I could have sworn he was sitting behind me. I even turned around to say hello. Then I remembered he’d passed and had to think for a moment to remember what year I was in. I think painting can do that to you- make time stand still and even move backwards a little!

When I’m reading the aura, I generally find spirit guide energy above the client’s head. Assigning a specific area of the aura to ‘the colours of spirit guides’ is helpful because then I can discern spirit energy from the energy of any incarnated beings the client might be interacting with. Using the area above the head as the spirit guide area makes sense because this is the area governed by the crown chakra, our spiritual chakra.
I tend to see spirit guides as balls of coloured light, with the colour, positioning and size of the ball giving me information about the guide’s personality and purpose. These meanings are my own personal system, and certainly not a rule of thumb- everyone perceives energy in their own unique way. I like the ball of light idea because to me, spirit is energy…the image of a guide as a character or human is secondary to the idea of spirit being an energy field.
Larger balls generally represent ‘older’ or wiser spirit guides. White balls are ‘master’ guides- guides with a very high frequency. When a ball of light is touching on, or close to the body, it means the guide and human have a very good working relationship and have probably been together for a long time.
