sounds like the experience was meant to be a confirmation or validation to you that your guide/s are with you and are here to help.
the next step is to pay attention to how they speak to you in your normal life. rarely do i actually "hear" or receive a direct/straightforward message from my guides. what you will notice though are indirect synchronicities all around you all the time. it's basically "signs" in your daily life. i have a good story/example of what i'm talking about.
about a week ago i did a candle ritual to ask for assistance in finding the next appropriate step for me to take in a specific spiritual matter. (the candle ritual isn't necessary, i just like to use candles because of the fire and because it creates a concrete vessel to transfer my intention into) so a couple days later i was at the mall getting my fiancee's engagement ring cleaned and inspected and i got a really strong urge to go into the bookstore and get a new book. my logical mind was saying that i shouldn't spend the money because i really didn't have any to spare, i had just enough to pay the bills and not much extra. but my intuition was screaming at me, telling me that there was a book meant for me. so i went into the bookstore and searched all of the sections of interest to me, but nothing turned up, nothing jumped off the shelf at me. feeling a little bummed out i left with no book, but i still had the urge to buy a book. another day passed and me and my lady traveled north to visit family for thanksgiving. we got there a day early because we had some errands to run for her dad. so we got into town and saw her dad, he needed us to go to the grocery store for him because he's a bit disabled and can't walk well anymore. we got everything on his list except for these cans of beef stew and his prescriptions. we were having trouble finding the stew so i told my lady to go get the prescriptions and i'd look for the stew. i went back to the soup aisle where the stew should have been, but it wasn't there. on a whim (a gut feeling really) i went to the next aisle over. this aisle had baking supplies on it, flour, sugar, spices, etc., a very inappropriate place for beef stew. but sure enough, on the bottom shelf, right below the sugar, the cans of beef stew we needed. i bend down to pick up the cans and right there on the floor in front of me is a $20 bill. i picked it up and waited a minute to see if it's owner realized that s/he lost it. no one came and i needed to leave so i took it. as soon as we checked out i got that urge to go to the bookstore again, so we popped into the bookstore next to the grocery store. i went back to their metaphysical section and looked long and hard. i wanted to get an AP book (even though i know most of the various AP traditions out there quite thoroughly already) just to keep my mind immersed in the subject, but i couldn't find any. they didn't even have astral dynamics, which was surprising. i was just about to give up when i felt that i should check out the occult books. i've been reading a lot more occult books lately, but i just didn't feel like checking that section until that moment. so i'm looking at the shelf, kind of bummed because i didn't see any AP books, kind of just goin through the motions to follow up on an intuitive feeling. then i saw it. right in the middle of a row of books on witchcraft, "ASTRAL TRAVEL" stuck out in big white letters. i didn't even read the cover, i knew that was the book i was there to get, i just took it and bought it. the total price came to $19.98 US, and if you recall i had just found $20 at the grocery store.
so through the candle ritual i contacted my guides with my desire to find the next step on my path. they let me know they were listening by giving me the first urge to go into the bookstore, but they knew that i couldn't afford a new book so nothing in that bookstore gave me that feeling of "that's the one". but when the time was right i was given the money i needed and the book i needed appeared. the book was perfect too. i had never read or even heard of these authors and they presented a slightly different take that i needed to read.
so if you pay attention you'll see that your guides are always talking to you, helping you along, especially when you ask for help.
