Because these experiences are “supernatural” and outside of the range of what is “normal” within physical experience, even when meant to be of comfort, or to support you energetically, consciously meeting a spiritual being for the first time can be a bit unnerving because it is in the realm of the unknown.

This uncomfortableness with the unknown is even further amplified when the being who is present does not serve in alignment with love and light, and is a “cosmic trickster”, or in the case of a ghost has not yet left the earth plane, despite their life ending.

There are spiritual beings who can greatly help you in your life as you continue to walk a path of awakening and increasing awareness.

How can you tell the difference?

How can you identify angels or tell if the spirit who is worth listening to, or if you need to be calling in protection and white light to release them?

It took me a while to learn this… I guess I should clarify and say it took me a while to learn that any spiritual beings were worth my time, because at first I lumped them altogether as “ghosts” and just tried to hide or look away.

It wasn't until after graduating from college, while I was meditating under a tree, that the light filled realms of spirit became apparent to me. It was as if a layer of illusion was pulled back from my eyes and I was finally able to see that yes, there are ghosts and cosmic tricksters, but there are also loving and helpful spirit guides, ascended masters, angels and more.

Some of these beings seek to serve, and some do not. By staying in love and light, and with the right intention we can consciously choose to only connect with and work with those beings who do.

I've first hand witnessed the results of friends and colleagues who chose (consciously or unconsciously) to work with beings who weren't serving in the light (it does not lead to a pretty outcome).

I've also experienced the blessings first hand (and seen the results of others ) who choose to work with high vibrational guides, angels, and ascended masters who do serve with light, love, and in alignment with Divine will.

I personally have been approached by beings on all levels of the vibrational scale at some point or another, and want to take this opportunity to share a bit with you about what I've learned in how to tell them apart, and who you want to avoid… And better yet, whom you want to work with to release lower vibrational beings back into the infinite field of light and love.

I also want to encourage you not to be afraid of any lower vibrational entities, dark beings, or ghosts… These spirits feed off negativity and fear based energy, but the truth of the matter is that love and light are infinitely more powerful. Therefore, if you do feel like a negative being has approached you, or ‘cosmic trickster' is messing with you, just call in a protective shield of Divine light.

You do not have to fight dark beings, but rather by just radiating love, light, joy, and compassion this will automatically dissipate them into the light.

An analogy I like to use is this… If you are in a dark room, there is no need to try to fight the darkness, just light a candle and even the smallest amount of light illuminates the dark. This same principle is true in a spiritual and metaphysical sense. When we shine light, darkness is by default illuminated. The light transforms the darkness into the light as it is released.

Intention and vibration are so important when it comes to identifying spiritual beings.

A benevolent spirit presence may startle you a bit, but it should not be associated with the energy of fear. Rather, you should feel a sense of excitement and well-being or even exhilaration from connecting with loving spiritual beings.

Here are some tips for telling spiritual beings apart.

1. Earthbounds (Otherwise known as Discarnate Spirits or Ghosts)

Encounters with ghosts and earthbound spirits is not a comforting experience, but it is also not one to fear.

My first psychic sense to develop was clairsentience or psychic feeling, which has served me greatly in being able to quickly discern the truth about people and spiritual beings.

When in the presence of earthbound spirits and ghosts, I just feel off… It is like a wave of awkwardness, sadness, fear, or even anxiety washes over me.

You may sense these spirits in a similar or different way. You may see a ghostly human image, feel a chill in the air, or get an eerie feel as if someone is watching you when earthbound are present.

The natural process when humans die is for their souls to cross over into the light. Some souls however resist this transition, especially in the case of sudden shocking deaths, wanting to stay with grieving loved ones, or due to belief systems and fearing judgment from God. ‘

Ghosts and earthbound spirits miss or avoid crossing over into the light, and then they must draw on the energy of people, or physical locations to stay bound to the physical plane.

This is why encounters with earthbound spirits is so draining… Because they are subtly draining you energetically to stay attached to the physical realm.

2. Loved Ones in Heaven

Visits from your loved ones in Heaven, is an entirely different experience than that with ghosts and earthbound spirits. The main difference is that your loved ones in Heaven have crossed over into the light (Heaven) and have returned into direct presence with Source… They have received a great deal of healing, and their energetic being has been restored.

Once spirits have crossed over into the light, they are then able to contact you in the physical realm, with the help of your and their guides and guardian angels.

When a loved one visits you, you may sense, see, hear, feel or even smell their presence. My grandfather still carries the scent of his favorite cologne even though he exists solely in spirit now.

You may also feel a shift in temperature, or suddenly get the chills, as you suddenly think of you loved one, remember certain times you shared with them, or just get the sense they are with you, or watching over you from Heaven.

Ancestors and deceased loved ones may also contact you through a dream, or during meditation to bring you a message of love and encouragement.

Much different from the encounters with earthbound spirits and ghosts, visits from deceased loved ones can be beautiful, healing and positive experiences.

3. Cosmic Tricksters

I use the term ‘cosmic tricksters' to lump together the variety of entities who are not earthbound spirits, guides, angels, ascended masters or loved ones, and who also do not serve according to Divine will in alignment with light and love.

I don’t feel the need to identify them by name here, but rather will just say that cosmic tricksters like to mess with, mislead, and cause all other sorts of trickery and deception for those whom they connect with.

Often cosmic tricksters will be drawn to those who engage in drug or alcohol use, as this creates a subtle (or sometimes huge) crack in the aura field in which they can move in. They also visit those who are engaged in denser vibrational emotions, like jealousy, envy and fear. Or those who want to seek revenge in some way.

Cosmic tricksters may act like angels, or deceased loved ones at first, and they can offer accurate psychic information, and even spiritual teachings while simultaneously draining you energetically or preparing to deceive or mislead you in the future. They cannot however hide their true nature or vibration.

Ask any beings who you connect with if they serve according to Divine will and in alignment with love, light, and for the highest and greatest good. If they do, they will be happy to answer the question and prove themselves, if not… I highly recommend you ask the being to leave, or ask Archangel Michael to release them into the light!

You can also place the intention to only connect with high vibrational beings of love and light. With this intention and by keeping your energy protected with light from the Divine you can avoid unneeded encounters with the cosmic tricksters of the energetic realms.

4. Spirit Guides and Angels

High vibrational spirit guides and angels on the other hand carry an incredibly high and light vibration, which may even make you feel a bit light headed or disoriented while you adjust to the increase in energy.

When angels come into your presence you may feel a shift in energy, notice a slight breeze, or you may even see a sparkle, orb, or flash of light keying you into their presence.

Your spirit guides and angels are always available to help, whenever called upon… But they will sometimes connect with you without your direct asking, in the cases of emergencies, or when you're in need of an encouraging hug energetically, to help protect and comfort you, or when someone else is praying for you and invites them in.

When angels, spirit guides, or ascended masters make themselves known to you, there is always a reason why. By quieting your mind and opening your heart, you can tune into their love, guidance and healing frequency.

Because angels are protectors, comforters, and healers who are in direct alignment with the Divine, being in their presence will help you to feel loved, uplifted, joyful, and comforted.

Release Lower Vibrational Beings Into the Light

If you do encounter a lower vibrational being, you can simply ask the angels, Archangel Michael, Jesus, and Mother Mary (or other high vibrational spirit guides, angels and ascended masters you’re connected with) to release the lower vibrational beings into the light.

Connecting with the loving guidance of the higher vibrational realms is incredibly healing, uplifting, and will empower you to more fully embody your authentic self and accomplish your purpose.

By staying in a stare of love and joy yourself, and with the intention to connect with high vibrational guides for healing, wisdom, and truth, you can avoid the challenges of dealing with lower vibrational beings while tuning into the blessings of the higher spiritual realms.
