Seven Different Types of Beings You May See in Your Meditations and Why

So, here you are, minding your own business during a meditation and *BAM* something or someone begins to connect with you. This is normal. Don’t panic. When you begin to raise your frequency or become coherent through your meditation practice you awaken your intuitive abilities and can begin to perceive other worlds and other beings.

 

Keep in mind that it is your energy that draws in these beings. You will draw in beings that are in alignment with your vibration. If you are fearful and anxious you may create an experience that mirrors that fear and anxiety. This experience is a sign that you may need to go within and heal a trauma that is hanging over you at this time. If you’re having peaceful, loving encounters give yourself credit for opening your heart and being able to move into that realm of higher experience. Journeying in the higher realms is all about mirroring, and the better you get at owning your visions the more understanding you will receive.

Here is a list of a few archetypal beings you may run into during your journeys:

 

1) Angels

We all know what angels are, we have been told of their protective presence since we were children. These beings generally appear to be very beautiful, warm, loving winged beings. They come around to hold space for you, to let you know that you are safe, protected and loved. They are direct vehicles of the divine and imbue you with complete, benevolent, comforting love. If you connect deeper with angels you will also find that there are archangels as well as angels, and that you can actually call upon specific angels to assist you depending on your situation.

 

Angels often come around when you are going through a difficult time in order to provide a supportive energy from beyond the veil. They can’t completely take away our pain but then can help stabilize and clear channels for inspired knowledge within our subtle bodies. We also have angels around us from birth just waiting to be communicated with so they can deepen their presence in our lives.

 

 

 

2) Totem Animals

Totem animals are powerful messengers that can frequently appear in dreams and meditations, or if you are very in tune, in a waking clairvoyant vision. If an animal appears before you pay special attention to it and any details surrounding it. What is it doing? How do you feel? Does it notice you? All of these will hint at the reason why you have called in this animal. It also helps to know that all animals are archetypes and that they represent specific qualities. We can attract an experience with them when their particular symbology is important to us. For example, if you are in a meditation and you see a powerful lion slowly walking toward you, it indicates that confidence, healthy ego, and leadership is important at this time. It will not be referring to a small issue or something that you are unaware of. All guides come forward in response to a pertinent issue that you desire to understand. It can help greatly to research different animals’ spiritual meanings and have a few websites or books you refer to for insight.

 

Totem animals come forward as messengers and guides because their presence is very pure and their symbology very obvious. They have the ability to carry a more straightforward meaning compared to guides that are in a more human form. Each one of us has several totem animals that are kindred spirits for us in this life. The themes they represent are themes within our lives at large that we need to integrate to find balance.

 

 

 

3) Deceased Loved Ones

It is not uncommon to reconnect with deceased loved ones within your meditations and dreams. Even though the ones we love have passed they are still very active and accessible on the other side. Many times you may notice that they beam with energy even though they may have been battling a tough illness before they passed. This is to show you that they are at peace and thus allow you to release any worry or guilt you may be carrying about their passing. In addition, they may appear younger or wear a particular outfit that has meaning to you to symbolize that they are all right and open to connect from a very pure and authentic place.

 

Many times they will come forward when they have had a tragic passing or they know that you are struggling with their loss. They come forward to help you find peace with their death, give advice, and even to just hang out. Generally people feel as though a deep healing takes place when this occurs because they get to experience their loved ones’ pure soul forms, which can bring an intense understanding and higher perspective as to why people lived the way they lived. They may come and go throughout your life, allowing their presence to be known, or you may get a few meaningful connections and then it seems they disappear. How and when our deceased love ones connect with us will be unique, personal, and meaningful.

 

 

4) Star People

As we become more open and aware spiritually, we begin to realize that there is intelligent consciousness beyond human consciousness. Not only does consciousness exist beyond our Earth collective, we can communicate with it via the highest technology in existence: our heart, our full consciousness.

 

These are beings that vary in their appearance, there is not just one type of star person and the ones that come forward to you within your meditations will have special meaning and history with you. Star people, although diverse in their own history and karma, are distant relatives and will feel familiar when you connect with them. You may even recognize their core frequency to be similar to your own!  They offer great practical insights as to how to live our lives and reveal deep secrets about lost human history.  Their presence may assist you in remembering other lives beyond Earth that can greatly help bring understanding and perspective to our purpose here.

 

Star beings show up with our dreams and meditations when we have an open and adventurous heart. It is easier to connect with them when we let go of our heavy dependency on Earthly paradigms. They respond to open space within the mind and heart. They often appear to people who have had recent lives within other star systems, and/or have an agreement to have a specific connection with them in this life. Anyone can connect with star people and they will become more and more accessible and prominent within our culture as time goes on.

 

 

5) Scary Creatures

Meditations are not always peaceful. Sometimes in our journeys we come across a frightening experience. Perhaps a grotesque or creepy being catches us off guard, or we may have a terrifying experience where we see troubling visions and feel hesitant to open up again. To that I say, congratulations. Yes, congratulations are in order because you have just gone through a shadow experience. A shadow experience is a “negative” experience where you feel helpless, violated, manipulated or frightened in the higher realms. I would love to tell you that this just happened for no reason at all, but that would be a lie. The truth is you have met another part of yourself. Everything that terrified you represents an aspect of your own consciousness, and if you begin to view your experiences that way it will becomes less scary.

 

Gone are the days when we can simply cry victim and blame others for our experiences. The higher realms are no different from our lives here. We attract what we are. We must use these darker journeys to understand ourselves more, knowing that the only reason we can actually perceive them is because they are within us. We must inquire within about the symbolism, emotional atmosphere, and potential message of the experience. What is it trying to say? Is it speaking to a negative personality trait that you are not realizing about yourself? Is it mirroring a real life event that you need to heal from but refusing to own? Or, is it a deep soul pattern related to another life that is coming through to give you deeper understanding of something you are going through? Scary experiences do not indicate that we are powerless in our meditations or astral body, but rather, they indicate that we need to heal something. All of our meditative experiences are tools, all of them.

 

 

6) Light Beings

Light beings are individuals (or conglomerates of consciousness) from a much higher level of reality, which makes their form difficult to comprehend, thus we simply perceive them as light. These beings can be confused as angels and it probably doesn’t matter too much, although light beings tend to be more active in the creation of this world, whereas angels are benevolent worker bees tending to our individual light. Light beings can come around when a very specific message needs to be given and understood. Often, these messages are directly related to life purpose or information about creating specific changes that will have a large impact on the whole. Light beings have access to the big picture and larger karmic patterns so their presence can come when a specific shift is very important for the whole. They are not personal guardians as much as they are collective guardians.

 

It is also common for ET beings, or other guides to appear as light initially, but upon tuning into them further you may notice a more specific personal frequency coming though. Light beings tend to work specifically in the higher realms with larger spectrums of consciousness.

 

 

 

7) Human Guides.

Beyond all of the higher dimensional beings we talked about, sometimes you will connect with plain ol’ human guides. These beings are individuals that have lived on Earth and have a specific message for you. It is highly likely that something within their life is similar to yours, especially at the time of the vision. The law of attraction is not just for the physical world, we also attract specific people in the higher worlds.

 

Often we have human guides that are with us from birth and are there specifically to help us with our journey here. Some of these individual will be guides who are available to assist you for your whole life, while others will come and go depending on where you are in your life. Sometimes we can also form strong bonds with friends or family from past lives. These bonds can become so deep that they actually carry on into other lives. A protective father in a past life may have such a deep soul bond with you that he comes around in this life; especially if there is a karmic journey that is somehow connected to one that you had with him in that life. One client had such a strong bond with a father figure in her past life that he volunteered to make his energy available for her in this life. I have also seen friendships that are very strong within soul groups where sisterhoods, or brotherhoods, step forward to hold space for a member in order to carry out work that was started in previous lives.

 

 

Many of our experiences with beings in the higher realms will be some variation of the above-mentioned beings. Always remember to have a sense of play as you journey: this sense of play will keep all connections and intentions pure.

    Thank you for sharing these insights!

    A while ago I have been connecting to I don’t know what to call it, Maybe elemental energy.

    One time I felt like I was water, feeding all both good and evil, the best of humans and the worst of humans. I was flowing throught all living beings on our planet, I felt like being a river and the oceans. The energy felt like being of service to all without any discrimination. It felt very expanded, very loving, very awesome.

    More recently I have been heaving a lot of visions of trees. They give off this beautifull peacefull and grounding energy. In my vision I saw this huge ball of beautifull white/golden light that got grounded through this beautifull strong tree surrounded by shallow water. Also in real life I have been more and more attracted to connect to trees, They seem like antennas that can be tuned to receive higher energies and ground/transfer them into our planet.

    I know Bashar talks a bit about tree whisperers but otherwise I don’t know much about it. It feels good though so I am just following my excitment. 😀

    • Gigi Young

      Beautiful visions! I agree that tree’s have a spiritual presence all their own. I know the druids certainly felt that tree’s were messengers and full of powerful medicine. I have even see a few oracle decks that get into the archetypes of tree’s. I will have to try to find that “tree whisperer” material from Bashar, that is very cool. At the end of the day I feel like people could learn a lot from plant consciousness, even crystalline consciousness, but because we are so different ( species wise ) we can over look them.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Hello!
      So, I was listening to your interviews… and when I found out you were from .. BC?!?? I nearly cried. Made my 2017!!!! I always felt a very strong connection I couldn’t describe. This is it! I’m from northern BC :)! Going through a massive awakening and your YouTube is making everything ok. Thank you SO much, words can’t describe my appreciation. Going through this very much alone. I try to connect with others, and they freak out. Things have been ‘there’ since childhood, but I didn’t know what – and it made life a challenge, but I am overcoming a lot, mainly addictions, much healing and work to do, but you are empowering me. I signed up for the wait list for a reading!. Can’t wait!!! Just wanted to say this is the first time on your moonbird blog – it’s amazing!! I have much work to do. With the tree connection, It’s possible this is your strong connection to BC! I’m sure you have your reasons as to why arent in BC now (so do I) but it’s pulling me hard to go back. The last time I was there the forces were so strong I could hardly bear it. This is just too cool. Gosh I feel like a stalker, lol, but I seriously am so intrigued! All the best! I can’t wait for a reading one day… at the same time I don’t feel I’ve ‘prepped’ enough yet, but I plan to 🙂 I have anxiety about connecting but am getting braver every day. It will change everything, I know, but I don’t understand why it’s so hard to do, why I’m scared.. part of my reason for wanting a reading. Ok – have a wonderful day! P.s. I woke up just before 4am, and was thinking Gigi is from BC!!! And both of my ears were ringing like never before! So I’m following my heart.???? Thank u for being you! And being so strong!

    Hi Gigi

    Great information once again. I find that when in a state of meditation you almost become like a radio that can connect to different frequencies depending on the clarity of your own signal.

    The clearer your lightbody, The higher your vibration can become.

    Thanks again

    Peace & Love

  3. Kajal

    Hi, I have a question about seeing flashes of light. I see light all through my day/night – during waking hours. Most of these light flashes are white light, but some have been colors – turquoise or a deep pink. Do you know what these are? And almost always in all my pictures there is always an orb present.
    Thanks for your guidance, Gigi!

    x

    • Gigi Young

      Hello Kajal,

      These are most likely your guides. I would recommend trying to tune into their frequency via the heart chakra, feel them out. Feel their energy, visually seeing them is just the beginning.

      Much Love,

      Gigi

  4. David

    What does it mean if you’re meditating and out of the void a face/presence appears, and then, you know that familiar feeling… But as it comes into view, it’s you… An indepentently functioning mirror image of your most current version. This happened during the Eclipse last night. It gave me chills.

    • Gigi Young

      Hi David,

      This is very common, although it sounds strange. All of our visions and guides are actually directly connected to our soul/oversoul and identity, your vision is just not removed…at all. This may symbolize that you are coming full circle within you life! Perhaps it is time to look over the last few years, as you stand before yourself, and see how far you have come!

  5. Camille

    Hi Gigi!
    Sometimes when I meditate, I feel like beings are watching me, and it makes it difficult to keep focused into my meditation, and often it scares me to be suddenly surrounded. Any tips to kind of relax more next time, or maybe what are they?

    Thank you so much for your great work!

    • Gigi Young

      Try using affirmations throughout the day like: I trust myself and am deeply protected. It is safe to sink deeply into my heart and higher-self. Meditation and spiritual connection comes easy, I am calm when I connect. It sounds simple but it really works. Sometimes we have to reverse engineer the feelings we want.

    • natalie

      Hi Camille,

      This happens to me sometimes, and my teachers just told me to ask for protection from your guides/spiritual helpers, which always helps, especially if you combine that with visualizing yourself surrounded by a golden light (doesn’t really matter what color it is, just the idea that you are protected in a bubble of light). Also, realize that as you explore higher vibrations, spirits/entities of those higher vibrations will notice you and become curious and want to visit you. My experience is that they are usually very polite. You can tell them that you are scared, and ask them to show themselves as non-threatening entities. You could also ask them to communicate with you in a way that won’t frighten you, or just tell them you are not prepared to communicate with them right now and either ask them to kindly leave or come back later.

    Hi Gigi,
    I love the images you found! So beautiful!
    I had an amazing experience! Not long ago I did this super short, spontaneous meditation. I follow James van Praagh on FB, and he posted a short meditation to connect with your guide. I clicked ‘play’ and followed his voice. I didn’t even feel that I got deep into a meditative state at all, but when his voice prompted me to see my guide I was amazed to see a tall blue male ET in a beautiful long purple robe that had a gold trim around the shoulder-chest area. He had a big head and no hair and I’d say human facial features. At first I thought “Ha! funny, an alien!” and almost dismissed this vision. But then I looked into his eyes. He looked at me with so much fatherly love! I’ve never experienced this before! He opened his arms to welcome me, and I was kind of small like a child but I looked like my adult self. I would dismiss this vision if it wasn’t for the INTENSE love I felt coming from him toward me. And it felt specifically fatherly and so real it made me cry! I have not managed to make contact again, but I also don’t meditate enough! Was he an Arcturian? Was this even real considering how short this meditation was?

    • Gigi Young

      How beautiful!In order to make that connection again it will help greatly to condition yourself to hold longer and deeper meditations. That makes it easier to connect. Blue skin could be arcturian or andromendan or even a hybrid or unique race. Have fun re-connecting and finding out more!

    I wish you a happy day and thank you for helping me sort out all this stuff that I am experiencing. I do feel overwhelmed and frankly dumb, because I know so many interactions are happening and I cannot understand. I know I am not being allowed full access because I have denied my empathic abilities for so long that I am being drilled on how to perfect it and how to use it for my own development. But my mind and heart feel so full of information that I cannot grasp. I see Hathor a lot and she keeps putting a bright circle on my head and horns come out of my head to hold it, like her headress. I know it’s a tool and very important but feel that my lack of understanding is almost ungrateful. I don’t know what to do. I keep seeing totem animals and I get that, started with a black wolf and now a white owl and other animals. The numbers 1,5,7 and 12 pop up all the time and I think it has to do with the dementions guiding me. Oh, but my favorites are the ones I know for sure, the source, mother mary, bright star, fairies and my buddies, Angels. Michael and another that doesn’t interact but she sends me images, like saying I am here, but that is it. I am also having unsettling experiences, that my friend who recently died has been helping me with. I just feel like I am not worthy of all the guidance because I cannot process the information. Any word of wisdom you can offer would be a gift. Blessings.

  15. JOANNA

    Thank you Gigi,
    Since a young girl I’ve always felt different than others and at some points I thought I was mentality unhealthy. I always felt lost and never had a true connection with my earth family. I shared some of my experiences with a friend and a family member and they would look at me oddly. About 2 years ago, I had an amazing experience and I was told some amazing things about who I was and things began to make sense. Recently… I began to investigate with excitement, curiosity, and yes I admit fear. I looked a little further and read about Pleiadians and many things I was told 2 years ago were exactly what Pleiadians are. I found your videos which helped me connect and feel safe during this amazing New Life… it gave me a sense of family. As I decided to mediate again yesterday… I asked for peace and to have no fear as you recommended. I saw a beautiful light above my head and a sense of relaxation and peace but still was a little scared. I heard a loud noise and the connection was gone. I wasn’t sure how to connect and what would I see. My fear is what I will visually encounter. This article will HELP me so much in my new journey, your work feels so pure and with so much LOVE. Sending you Love and THANK YOU ????

  16. Leah

    Hi! Thank you for this! One question I keep asking…..is it only my imagination or am i really seeing this in my meditation. How can I tell the difference? I’ve been doing guided meditations so when it gets to the part to meet my spirit guides then I see and connect with these different beings and sometimes i wonder if I’m just making it up in my head. Your insight would be appreciated. Thank you!!

    • Gigi Young

      Hi Leah,

      Anytime you are doing intuition work like this always go with your first impression, assume it is correct. This keeps the energy open. Follow your gut more than your head.

      Thank You for stopping by <3

    Hi Gigi 🙂

    Thank you so so much for all you do. I am over the moon to have discovered your channel. You are such an honest ,natural and positive person.

    I would like to ask you something. I have started to meditate recently, I watched many of your videos and I always set good intentions in my heart and mind, get rid of negative energy and focus on meditation. But for some strange reason I always seem to get an angry face coming at me at great speed, it appears to me like it is trying to engulf me… I am really not sure why this keeps happening. It is not like I am doing it on purpose, I do have a lot of negativity going on in my life, family drama, friendships breaking down, and that is why I started to mediate to forget about problems.
    Would you have any idea why I keep getting those scary angry faces attacking me?

    Much love 🙂

    • Gigi Young

      Hi Klaudia,

      Believe it or not it is actually common in the beginning of a meditation session to see faces. I have even known certain initiatives to consider it moving through the astral realm. The quality of the face will indicate something that you may need to clear or explore within yourself. In this case it is an angry face so I would recommend asking your higher-self what you need to understand about this image. Ask why it is significant.You may get an immediate answer, or if there is a block around understanding it you may get it a bit later, when you least expect it, or in dreamtime.

      The key here is to know that all that we experience in the astral, or simply higher realms, is an representative of ourselves. We have a lot going on and we are not always aware of the deeper messages within our consciousness. Layers whether they ask to be healed, or they are just pure creative insight, are always floating to the surface to be understood and created with. It is our nature. I would suggest exploring and working with what you feel it means and as you do this you will get faster at deciphering what the message is.

      Thank You,

      Gigi

    What is your visual technique for clearing out some of the negative energy in the beginning of a typical meditation? I focus it into large black rocks I throw into a well.

  20. Michael

    I’ve been practicing meditation for a few weeks now and this is the first time an entity came to me. I was in such a deep crown chakra trance after trying root chakra, but since I feel most at peace when higher frequencies are occuring I went back to crown. I was in space admiring the beauty of the sun at an angle just chilling there with protective energy around me. Next thing you know it an angel cherub comes to me and I guide the entity into my arms. We sung the frequency together and I could feel the subtle alterations in my throat even though only my soul was singing, not my physical self. I cradled this entity in my arms and felt so much love for one another. The only thought I could exude onto it/him/her was protection and this golden ring of light closed it’s plethora of beautiful eyes into my arms like my child. As I dwindled back down to our physical plane I tried to ask for a name but it was in its/his/her own language that was impossible to even try to pronounce so I laughed and decided next time we will find a nickname.

    All in all, thank you for this article that reassured me to whom I was connected with. It’s an amazing experience. ☺️

    During my meditation I saw what I thought first was a brain then I realized it was some type of maze. I have been meditating for over a year and have never seen this. I wondered if you might have any ideas to why, and what it means. I appreciate any feedback.
