Do you talk with them in general, or they teach you certain things?
My guides are a tad more cliché (really like them, though): a wolf, a snake, a lion, and a monkey. The snake and lion have their own names, which have told me themselves, and which later turned out to be relevant to what they were teaching me. I named Demon and the monkey myself too, though. Wolf doesn't seem to care for having a real name
Could the ageless spirit be your way to communicate with a higher existence? When I "graduated" from the basic teaching sessions of my guides they told me that my teacher would be now the World. In analogy, it sounds like your ageless spirit, in front of which you see yourself always as someone really young.
Hey that is really interesting I never thought of that. I never ask the ageless spirit anything, and that entity doesn't come when it's "called" per se. Just that sometimes I go into the garden within to have a pow wow and that's the guide that shows up.
When I had my menarche, my first period, my Dad told me that psychics have a strong power surge during the crossing over of the threshold into adolescence. He went into the forest and gathered some herbs, and I had to fast for 3 days while burning the herbs in a little brazier. I had to go into nature and find 3 signs to "anchor me." One of the signs I found was a heartwood of an oak tree, another was three crow feathers that fell from the sky and pierced a leaf in front of me.
He told me to waft the smoke over my face and ask for a vision.
In my vision, among other things, I encountered a murder of crows roosting in a linden tree and two of them flew down onto my shoulders and slid their beaks into my ears!
The only spirit guide that I ever "talk to" is Angela. But even then at this point I rarely ask questions, when we talk it's just to mull over issues that my ego muddles. When I chill with her, though, everything becomes clear.
They were...not absent...but silent, and unwilling to interact with me, when I was addicted to any kind of stimulant drug in the past. Never judging or telling me to stop. I think it was part of the process I had to go through.
