Spiritual entities can be anything from angels, spirit guides, passed on souls or God. Each one feels and manifests differently.
Today I feel angels. They are subtle and their presence is soothing and calm. I may hear music or singing when they are near. I will feel a soft brushing against my cheek or my hair.
When I ask them to draw near for a particular reason they always do. There is almost never any interference as that would not allow my free will to do what I please with my life.
