Thanks for exploring Ruth L Miller’s site!

Ruth L Miller is an eclectic scholar with degrees in many fields of science and the social sciences and is ordained as a New Thought minister - because she keeps on seeking answers to the fundamental questions that make it possible for the spiritual beings we call humanity to live well and in harmony on this planet for generations to come.


Why do some people have a throng of spirit guides surrounding them, and some people only one or two?

As I understand it, we experience only what we are currently resonating with/as and are emotionally and intellectually prepared to accept. This applies to the material, as well as the semi-material (astral) and spiritual-energetic (etheric) worlds we’re experiencing all the time.
Given that basic assumption, we can anticipate that whatever we are experiencing is a function of our current resonant pattern and our emotional-intellectual readiness.
At the same time, most traditions teach (at the advanced/esoteric level) that the guidance we receive is not from a person, but is in fact, a field of information that we’re tapping into (akashic records; Source energy; Infinite wisdom; Holy Spirit; collective consciousness; Oversoul). And, like everything else, how we experience it is a function of our resonant field (we get the info that we resonate with) and our emotional-intellectual framework (the form it takes is what we’re prepared to experience).
Most of us are not ready to experience multiple perspectives and possibilities at the same time, so most of us “interpret” what we’re experiencing as a single input: a Voice; a Spirit Guide; a saint, angel, Christ, or god. Julian Jaynes, in his work on the Bicameral Mind, has said that when a predominately left-brained person receives intuitive info from the right brain it’s experienced as a voice from outside the person. Swedenborg, Goethe, Emerson and Jung suggested that the collective consciousness is constantly being tapped into and transformed into inner experiences of archetypal forms and voices. The Greeks and Romans called them the Muses. Many people who channel higher wisdom have been told by the informer that they’re receiving from many entities as one voice: Jane Robert’s Seth and The Betty Book material are examples. Esther Hicks has said that when she started receiving her information she felt a need to name the source so she named it Abraham–but the voice that speaks through her refers to Itself as Source energy.
Some of us either don’t trust a single voice and so want corroboration from other sources, or we experience different resonant states in which we receive different kinds of info, which we associate with different “Guides.” So we experience many of them.
Basically, as you can tell, it’s all the same: One infinite Intelligence permeating all matter-energy, of which we are a part and to which we have as much access as we are willing to let go of our normal thought patterns and allow.
