Angel1 [?] 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.
The truth.

There are two sources, one is Spirit and the other is the unconscious. It's the appearance that comes from ourselves, either way.

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.

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.

Original Guide

i was a sickly child when i was younger i suffered from unknown problems no doctor could find out what i was suffering from apart from lack of iron in my body i was 12year old which was called a secondary modern school in those days for a year or two from that age id feel queezy or sickly like a feelings of non existence to feel better id try to stay were there was a lot of fresh air one school session i sat by a window the sun was shining
but it was not hot or even warm that day i wanted to open the window but the teacher would not let me open the window a short time into the class period i started feeling sick and faint i tried to get to the school classroom door as i could feel myself drifting into unconsciouness i was fighting it at the same time
but it was no use so i surrendered and thought this is it everything went totally black i thought id died then all of a sudden as if like magic this red indian chief appeared before me face only screaming at me
i could not understand what he was saying but his eyes were bulging and glaring at me all of a sudden i woke to the real world the school kids were laughing at me the teacher looked confused and
was talking to me but i could not hear him at first when i became fully conscious i asked the teacher what had gone on and why the school kids were laughing at me, he paused and said nothing
at first he must have thought i was pretending to get out of class. i
said to him look i dont remember anything between the period of time you saw me acting that way i was up until now i was not lucid, he said brian you were talking in slow motion and moving very very slowly
i was sent to the nurse but she could find nothing wrong with me. this was not the first time i saw a guide or angel the last time was when i was nearly four years old

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?

I have never met mine but I do believe that I have at least one. There have been many times when I know things before I was told. Yup- E.S.P. I do have it not strongly but every now & again it will click to MY surprise. I know that is my Spirit Guide.
