I have to disagree with God not being a figure. We were all created by God from a part of him which makes our soul divine. We are divine energy. I have 3 spirit guides, Helen, Manos and Jesus. I see them when they come to me but i also communicate with them every day. But i have also seen God, he has appeared to me. He has a face of an older looking man. I am a medium, and i was chosen for this, given the gift to see, hear, feel and communicate with spirit. This gift was given to me from God. One other gift i was given is i am a conduit for him, i channel the message for him. I can sit with people, hold their hands and the message comes through. He has spoke to me through them. i have done this with many who i do not know on a personal level. None of this came about until i turned 50. i can't explain how or why i am able to do this, But i know it's real. I know when we sit across from each other and i hold their hands, they look like they're jolted with electricity. Then they start speaking. When i close my eyes i see blue energy and then i see my Angels. I would gladly sit with anyone and show them. As long as they can handle the energy transfer. Did it with my sister, she started shaking and passed out.
