I never really had experience talking with guides, but I would just like to share some incidents that happened.
A few weeks ago, I was very upset because my life wasn't going so well. So one sunny day, when I was getting some air at my backyard, I heard a voice. He told me it will take a while but it will be okay. Instinctively I knew it was my guide somehow, and I asked for his name. He told me he's Marchoa, and the communication just ended like that.
Sure enough, a few weeks later... everything is great once again. I however, haven't heard from him at all since then. Maybe I should consciously try to connect? But I do not exactly have a purpose, or a question to ask, hence been putting that off for quite a while.
On the other hand though, I was waken up by this push on my butt this morning. And when I wanted to sleep in again, my guide... he shook my bed and I was like okay okay... you win... I'm getting up now. :P There was another incident when I got this smack on the head that I totally jumped from my bed when I was trying to sleep in. So yea, funny things that guide(s) do I suppose even though I hasn't been talking to him/them.
