We share the world with many energetic beings. There are angels, guardian angels, archangels, spirit guides and spirits, just to name a few. And even though these names are often used interchangeably, there are actually specific differences between all of them. So, let’s get to know spirit guides and angels, what makes them different, and how we can connect with them better!
Spirit Guides and Angels are Light Spirits
Both Spirit Guides and Angels are what we call “Light Spirits”, they exist completely and fully in Divine light. Because of this, they are loving, compassionate and only want the best for you. They’re always ready to assist you and help you navigate your life here on earth. However, it’s up to you to reach out to them and let them know you’d like their help.
What Are Spirit Guides?
Their very name, “Spirit Guide” already is a lovely indicator of who and what these energetic beings are. They are the spirits or souls, of those who’ve once lived on earth as men or women, just like you and I. They might even be a relative who’s passed on. Therefore, they understand what life is like, complete with all of its joy, pain, and countless experiences. Now that they live in Divine light and love, they are like life experts and perfectly adept at guiding you in life.
Some teach that before you became incarnate, you actually chose your spirit guides. Others suggest that they are assigned to you. Either way, your spirit guides are matched to you specifically, based on what your earthly path looks like and the challenges that await you here. They may come and go depending on your life situation, but if you call on them, they’ll be there for you!
Who are Guardian Angels?
Their name also implies who and what they are. Guardian angels are spirits who have a specific task of guarding and watching over you. But there’s so much more to them than that! The biggest difference between guardian angels and spirit guides is that guardian angels have never lived as human beings. Instead, they only and always live as spirits. Therefore, they exist on a much higher energetic level than spirit guides.
These energetic beings are assigned to you at birth, and many teachers believe that you have at least two guardian angels. While spirit guides assist you as experts, guardian angels can take on a more protective role, and surround you with Divine love and light. They can assist you when trouble arises and can make you feel better if you’re going through a difficult time. Not only do these angels protect and comfort you, but they’ll gladly look after anyone you ask them to.
How to Interact with Your Guardian Angels and Spirit Guides
It might seem intimidating to approach your angels and guides, but you don’t have to be a psychic or clairvoyant to do so. In fact, the single, most important thing you need is the intention to contact them. Even though they’re ready to help you, they’ll only intervene when you ask them to. Of course, they’ll nudge you and guide you as best they can, but ultimately, they want your directives!
And remember, you don’t have to pray or use elaborate words. You can simply speak to them sincerely and honestly. It’s true, they do live in a realm that many of us are unfamiliar with, but don’t be afraid to engage with them. They can only help you!
