“Can negative entities masquerade as spirit guides?”

Transcript of the Video:
Hello and welcome to another episode of “Ask Erin Pavlina.” Today’s question comes from Alice. “How can we tell if entities we’re encountering on the astral plane are positive or if they’re negative beings pretending to be positive. I’ve heard that some negative entities will masquerade as guides to deceive and trick us.”

Well, Alice, that is true. As soon as you enter the astral plane, it’s every man for himself. There are definitely things out there that are of a lower vibrational quality than the things that you’re probably wanting to encounter and it is wise to be aware that these beings exist, so that you can avoid them. I like to think of negative entities as bees. So, when you’re at, like, a picnic and you’re enjoying yourself and the bees come or the ants come, it’s very annoying and you don’t want to agitate or disturb them, or they might sting you. So, the same is true of negative beings or lower vibrational entities.

So, there are four things I would recommend you doing before you go astral traveling so that this doesn’t happen to you.

The first thing is: Know your guides. If you know who your guides are, it will be easy for you to tell whether what you’re encountering is your real spirit guide or if it’s something masquerading as a guide. So, how do you get to know your spirit guides? There are a lot of different ways, but I highly recommend meditation and tuning in that way. There are a lot of articles on my website that will help you distinguish and identify your spirit guides and learn how to tune into them. So, if you know who your guides are, and something else presents itself, you’re going to be able to tell the difference. Trust me, you will know. They will not be able to masquerade as guides if you already know who your guides are.

The second thing I would tell you is that negative entities feed off of fear. And because they feed off of fear, when you astral project, if you’re in a state of fear, they’re going to be attracted to you. But if you encounter a negative being, or even if you’re encountering a being whose frequency you’re not familiar with, cast love at them. If they are a negative or lower vibrational being, they are going to flee from your love energy. Poof. Gone. So remember to love, love, love and they will not be able to withstand that energy.

The other thing I would say is before you project at all, or before you go to sleep and are open to projecting, ask your guides and your angels to protect you – to help keep the negative entities away. They can do that. Angels especially can protect your energy from the negative beings. So, if you’re going into a situation where you’re already being protected by angels, let them clean house and let them keep the negative entities away.

The last thing I would say is keep your vibration high so you don’t attract negative entities. Negative entities are only there because you are a tasty treat with your energy. If you are coming into an astral situation and you’re feeling fear, then they’re going to be attracted to you like a moth to a flame. So, don’t be attractive to the lower vibrational entities. Raise your vibration and be in a state of love, joy, and compassion, and gratitude, and you will not attract the lower vibrational beings. In fact, you will attract the higher vibrational beings and that is a much, much better place to be.

Great question! Be safe out there.
