[Excerpt from TT: 2002-02-28]
[ludmila] What can you tell us about our individual guides and angels? Do they have overleaves and are they our discarnate ET’s or TC’s?
[M_Entity] Guides do not have Overleaves. Unless you are referring to a Physical Plane Guide, such as a Tour Director, which we believe you do not mean. We do not differentiate between “angels” and “guides,” in terms of nonphysical support and assistance. Most of your more intimate and “felt” presences of Guidance do tend to come primarily from discarnate Entity Mates, Cadence Members, Essence Twins, Task Companions, and Cadre Mates.
[ludmila] What is a tour director?
[M_Entity] We would define a “tour director” as a human being in a position to direct a group of fragments through a popular setting, pointing out its history, features, and entertainment, etc.
In general, ALL fragments have at least 3 nonphysical Guides.
[Talyn] Do our discarnate spirit guides ever “resign or hand us off ” to a new guide during a single incarnation or lifetime? As in a prearranged “agreement” on the other side? Particularly if our task companions this lifetime are discarnate guides?
[M_Entity] We would not describe a Guide as “handing you off” to another Guide, but there are Guides who are temporary, and Guides who are “permanent” for the life of the Fragment. Each Fragment has at least the 3 Guides permanently for the life. The three Guides are specifically related to the Centers/Axes. Each working with that element of that Fragment’s life, such as the EMOTIONAL/Higher EMOTIONAL Guide, the INTELLECTUAL/Higher INTELLECTUAL, etc.
[Talyn] So it would not be totally unusual to sense the presence of a newly discarnate recently deceased guide?
[M_Entity] It is fairly unusual for a recently deceased Fragment to become a Guide, though it does happen, of course. In most cases, that which “feels” like a Guide is merely the etheric presence of the Personality remaining attached to the relative or friend as a means to help comfort in both directions. That is part of the process of the 7th Internal Monad. The successful completion of the 7th Internal Monad is not merely in dying; it is in comprehending the extended impact on those who were attached to that Personality.
[sam-nemo] How can we attract guides, people or entities with similar goals to ours?
[M_Entity] There are parts of the life in which the Personality manages, and parts in which Essence manages. “Attracting” Fragments, physical or nonphysical, is managed by Essence. Personality need only communicate to Essence if there is a particular interest determined.
Communicating to Essence is as simple as thinking. If you choose to be clearer, set aside time before and/or after sleep to softly communicate to Essence what you seek.
Essence has a limited “view” of the lifetime, and without the conscious input from Personality, the lifetime can be in agreement with or against the wishes of a Personality. When Personality is clear in what it wants, or seeks to attract, Essence is there.
