The Good types -
Are you going through a vulnerable life transition, such as an intense period of soul growth, an emotional unraveling, a dark night of the soul or a heavy change of any kind? A Guardian Spirit may be appointed to you to protect your vulnerable, energetic and soul self as you sleep to protect you from dangerous or predatory Spirits from coming into your life during this period of temporary weakness.

Or we attribute it to an authoritarian personality who abuses us, leaving us feeling shocked and betrayed. Or we direct our holy longing to the other world, devaluing the pleasures of human life. Or worse, like cult members or fundamentalists, we mistake death for transcendence and sacrifice our lives for uncertain paradise.
