I'm just new to this site but you're chat caught my attention.
I'm 23. I think(?) I met my spirit guide when I was 17.
I've seen a man, very large - almost 7feet with long black hair. He's quite scary/intimidating looking (looks like a warrior) but the times that I've seen him I have felt a surreal almost euphoric sense of safety.
He has only appeared to me once or twice but others have seen him with me and described him in the same form as I remember.
I think I fully realised/accepted his presence a couple of years ago when I was going through a really bad patch and went to visit my boyfriend at the time for comfort. I was crying and he was lying in bed huggin me and got up to go to the kitchen to get a drink of water. I begged him not to leave me but he said he was only going to the kitchen and I would be fine alone for a minute.. Long story short - this particular bf is a science student and doesn't belive in anything including god, ghosts etc but he opened the bedroom door, turned white, started shaking and jumped back into bed and promised not to leave me. He was obviously shaken up and when I coaxed information out of him he told me that when he'd opened the door there was a really large man with dark hair standing blocking the way and he had an overwhelming feeling that he wasn't allowed to leave me (this is coming from a COMPLETE non believer + I'd never told him about my spirit guide - let alone the details of his appearance). I think that was my spirit looking after me?
My spirit guide hasn't let me hear his voice either? I have seen him standing about 3feet away from me in full colour/detail and i begged him to speak to me (i was scared outta my brain) but he wouldn't answer. But.. unlike you I am constantly amazed at my guide's strength. I can't believe I'm saying this - I feel a little bit crazy but I swear on my life I have seen him enter someone elses body. I was camping with a group of friends once and one of the girls was having a nightmare and whimpering/crying in her sleep. Another friend went really strange (we were the only ones awake), he kind of went into a trance and walked over to her - as he was standing there I watched him transform into my spirit guide and he placed his hands on her head and she immediately stopped whimpering and started sleeping peacefully?!
I've had several conversations with that person - he believes the man is his spirit guide not mine but I disagree because he has shown himself several more times and is still with me years later regardless of whether I'm alone or with other people. I read somewhere that spirits can guide more than one person at the same time? Is it possible he guides both of us? OR could my friend be right when he says that its his guide that he's 'leant' to me once or twice because of the close bond/friendship between us??
I like to consider myself a spiritual person but I am studying psychology and work in a Mental Health facility so I believe that sometimes 'social norms' and my familiarity with mental iillness causes fear and inhibits my receptiveness.
But.. Despite my fears and my logical rational I am still a believer. I have seen ghosts, sensed/known things that I shouldn't/delivered messages from people who have passed, I have dreams that come true and more often than not i just 'know things'.
I have so many questions...!!
Is it true that spirit guides can enter your body? Or just spirits in general?
I was meditating one night and a nasty spirit entered my room. It was horrible, I went dizzy, there was this pressure around my whole body and I couldn't see - my vision started going black and fuzzy around the edges and got smaller and smaller until I couldn't see anything - but I remembered being told that a spirit can't stay in your home if you refuse it admission so I just started saying in my head 'go away, you are not welcome here, you are bad, you can't stay etc'. It took awhile, but I won and it left.
I have also felt my guide during a car accident. Four witnesses expected me to be dead after rolling and flipping a car I walked out with barely a scratch (actually i crawled/was dragged out the other side cauz my side was too smashed up). The roof had caved in almost 60cms just 3inches left of my head, its only by gods grace that I survived. The man (truck driver) who pulled me out of the car told me I was blessed and he was going to buy a tatslotto ticket in my honour cauz he'd never seen anyone so lucky! haha I hope he won.

I am so jealous you have experienced your guides stroking your hair etc. I can't associate with that - the closest I have had is someone sitting on my bed or standing at my doorway. As long as I can remember I have occasionally felt the pressure/prescence and occasionally the figure of someone at the foot of my bed.
I agree with aluna, the internet can be a wonderful (and cheap) tool in meeting your guide. I just found a site with 11 lessons on how to communicate with your guide, I haven't had a chance to try it out yet but here's the link: http://www.crystalinks.com/spirit_guides.html
Anyway all, I'm so sorry for making this msg so long. I have a tendancy to get carried away... I'm just really excited that I've found somewhere where I can talk/get advice so thanks for listening n would love to hear your feedback etc.
