Spirit companions are spiritual entities that form a partnership with an incarnated individual. They can be friends, family, guides, guardians, and teachers, and can greatly help you through your journey in life. This can be any spirit that accompanies you during this life, and multiple of these spirits can be brought together to form spirit families. The spirit families are simply made of many different spirit companions that have come together, because of their connection to a specific spirit keeper. People who have a spirit companion are considered to be practicing spirit companionship, or spirit keeping, and are known as spirit keepers, or spirit companions themselves.
There are a couple differences between Spirit guides, and spirit companions. Spirit guides are already connected to you before you incarnate. Spirit guides can also be sent down later in your life by your higher self to interact with you and to bring you knowledge, and wisdom. Spirit companions will not be connected to you before this incarnation, and before you get to know each other both of you will agree to communicate, and work together in this lifetime as companions. A practitioner is also able to have spirit guides, and spirit companions at the same time with both of them filling different roles in the practitioner’s relationships, and experiences.
Any form of spiritual entity can end up becoming a spiritual companion as long as the spirit keeper, and the spirit begin to associate with each other in order to form this companionship.
Spirit companions can be summoned through normal summoning practices, or can be met through astral projection, or astral travel. You would also be able to meet, and connect with spirits by simply moving through the mundane world as you do normally, so that you would be able to get to know the spirits that you meet, and take them on as companions, if they would like to do so.
Spirit companions can be matched with you through spirit companion shops, where conjurer’s will connect you with specific spirits that fit your personality, practice, and life. These practitioners will charge you for their time, and effort, for matching you with a specific entity. Spirit companion shops can be legitimate places of business ran by very talented individuals, though there are quite a lot of scam shops that go through the process of scamming people out of their money, that you will need to watch out for. Legitimate Spirit companion shops also will flush out harmful, or negative spirits as best as they can ensuring safer communication, and companionship for the practitioners that will be receiving the spirits, and would usually provide many other services that would help the keeper, and the companion begin to form their relationship.
These entities are also sometimes bound to a vessel in a primarily non forceful, or obstructive manner, usually by the spirit keeper, or by a conjurer once the spirit have been taken on as a companion. These vessels usually act more like magickal communication devices between the spirit keeper, and the spirit companion, allowing them to act as direct connections to them when communication is needed, or wanted. These vessels can be pretty much anything, but they are usually something that is more special, or connected to the personality, and being of the spirit companion. They do not need to have a vessel, though this vessel acts as a connection point, and grounding point, and is also used as spiritual housing for the entity.
Once the spirit keeper, and spirit companion begin their relationship they may work with, and communicate with each other. The spirit keeper may even create the spirit companion an altar, and give them offerings. From there the relationship can change into many different forms depending upon where they would like to take it.
