[?] About spirit guides
 
In Carl Jung's works, I've read that he says, what people call 'spirit guides" are simply archetypes of the unconscious.

Now, I wonder - in my experience spirit guides really feel like impersonal energies, not conscious entities.

On the other hand, my expectations, of course, influence the experiment.So, if I expect them to be conscious, probably they will feel like such.

If I expect them to be not, then they will feel not.

But, are spirit guides independantly conscious entities or not. Because, if my expectations give them life, it simply means that I communicate with myself and not an independent conscious being.

Right, I know, I'm a little confused, but this one has been bothering me for some time...

I tend to think that it is all coming from within ourselves, it does not really matter how they appear, from you or from outside of you, there's only one source so you could say all it's coming from within.

Just my opinion.

I saw my guides right in front of me too, Native spirit. And have seen others' guides too when they chose it.

I guess I have to have some more faith then...

My thought reading your deep thoughts were as we are all part of the whole, part of universal consciousness, all one then they could be either or both. depends on where you focus your consciousness. It’s a paradox.

I've gotten a dry, detached "that's refreshing" when I've finally done a thing a different way.

When I called Jezus to save me out of some troublesome situation... he just made me feel how hilarious it was. And I laughed. Not realizing that it was just that. At least for someone ENTIRELY not attached to my suffering lol. I did get a lot of love too

I deeply respect Carl Jung especially his work on dreams, but I think he has his limitations when it comes to the spiritual worlds. Sure some of the entities we meet are archetypes of our own unconscious, especially in dreams, but many others aren't, or are both as Kaliope points out.

I think it can come from ourselves, our higher self
but too ... it can come from others. I have noticed few are having the looks, the symbols on them that I don't understand what they mean at the moment and some has taken me years to finally get an answer too.
Could it be that as long as we have both positive and negative feelings that we attract different set of spirit guides?
