Guardian Angels vs. SpiritsMay 9, 2016
Life is challenging enough, but it’s always good to know that we have spiritual protection as we make our way through life. Some of the most personal protective forces we have to consult are our guardian angels and our spirit guides. While they both play crucial roles in our lives, there are some basic differences between the two.
First, you must understand that angels are celestial beings that have never held a physical form on the Earth. This means that they vibrate at a higher frequency and are messengers from the divine, whereas spirit guides are entities who may have once been human with a corporeal body. Often, you will find that a spirit guide may have been a long-ago ancestor or a loved one who has passed. Some spirit guides are also beings from other dimensions and galaxies not yet recognized by humans.
You are assigned a guardian angel at birth. It’s your guardian angel’s job to protect you as you experience life in all its glories and challenges. Your guardian angel will protect you from harm and give you comfort in times of distress. If your life is at risk, then your guardian angel can step in and manipulate the situation to your benefit. There are countless stories of near-death experiences or unbelievable occurrences that can only be attributed to your guardian angel intervening on your behalf.
However, spirit guides enter your life to guide you and help you learn a necessary lesson. If you listen, they will give you guidance and help you find the right path for you. They may or may not be with you your entire life and may enter or leave your life as you learn lessons and move forward. They are unable to intervene in your life and cannot subvert your free will. Your spirit guide will let you know the best course of action, but it’s up to you to act upon it and make it happen.
Your guardian angel is assigned to you before birth before you ever start your human life and will remain attached to you throughout your journey. They are only able to act in your best interest and will be there whether you recognize it or not. Whenever you need comfort or aid, all you need to do is ask your angel for help, and they will be there for you. However, sometimes their message may be very subtle, so pay close attention to odd coincidences, new opportunities or the natural world after you ask for help. The answer may appear in the most unlikely place.
Your relationship with your spirit guide requires a bit more effort on your part to become strong. Spend time getting to know your spirit guide and learn how they communicate with you. Do they appear in dreams or send messages through the natural world? Explore your relationship with the spirit guides in your life so that you can better understand what lesson you need to learn.
Even though guardian angels and spirit guides serve different functions in your life, they are both here to help you. All you have to do is ask and open yourself up to their messages.
