Spirits of all sorts have been my companions since I was a small child. When the autumn winds start to blow, the spirits dance with the leaves. They call to me louder now that the veil between our worlds is thin. Sometimes, these departed souls become close allies. I value my spirit guides, from the earth bound dead to my animal spirit companions. Based on the number of messages I’ve been receiving, I think they are calling to many of us as the darkness grows. Here’s a short introduction to all types of spirit guides, including a journey.
Last night when I was out talking to the Full Moon, a movement in this distance caught my attention. A woman, clad in a 18th century clothing, all white, was walking up the road. My entire body was quaking. No mere illusion, she was the real deal. She walked on up the road, not at all interested in me. Not a new spirit guide. I breathed a sigh of relief. I’m full up on spirits of all kinds right now. That’s been my experience my entire life. Ghosts have always been part of my life as have all types of other spirit companions, from stones to my beloved witch ancestor guide, Doreen Valiente. Now that autumn is here, they’ll undoubtedly come calling in droves. I thought I’d write a bit about my experiences and offer some suggestions for walking with the dead.
