These beings are highly evolved souls who have undergone the transition from one or more earthly existence to the sixth or seventh Heavenly levels of the here after, and are living in the spirit world. Their role to us, is to provide guidance and help us also to evolve spiritually.
Our Spirit Guardians and Spirit Guides are the highly evolved Heavenly companions that help and nudge us along our life path. Guardian angels are sometimes confused with “spirit guides.” A spirit guide is a loving being who has lived upon the earth in human form. This person then received special training in the afterlife about how to become a spirit guide.
This training emphasizes that the guide is not to interfere with your free will or make decisions for you. The guide is there to give you general advice, comfort, and at times warning and protection. Most spirit guides are deceased loved ones, such as grandparents, siblings, beloved friends, and parents.
Unlike Spirit Guardians and Spirit Guides, Angels have never been human. Angels do however, guide and protect us during our earthly existence. They can also take on what appears to be a human form in order to deliver a message or to be a source of spiritual guidance to Guardian angels, who have never walked as mortals upon the earth, have a higher vibrating energy frequency. People who are empathic, who can “feel” the sensation of a spiritual presence, can tell the palpable difference between an angelic and a spirit guide appearance. Clairvoyants see that angels’ aura is bright white, whereas a spirit guide’s aura is not quite as bright and may appear as a bluish-white.
Angels are beings of light who respond to our calls for guidance, assistance, protection, and comfort. God’s thoughts of love create angels. The angels are here to help us, especially when our intent is to bring joy and healing to the world. Ask for as many angels as you want to surround you. Ask for angels to surround your loved ones, your home, and your business. Angels receive great joy at helping us, and they ask only that we occasionally remember to say, “Thank you” in gratitude for their help.
Since angels are purely spiritual beings, they have no time or space restrictions. An archangel can help many people in different geographical locations simultaneously. So, never worry about calling upon an angel because you fear that your need isn’t “big enough” or that the angel might be busy. Your call for help is sweet music to an angel’s ears.
Because of the “Law of Free Will,” angels and archangels cannot intervene in our lives unless we specifically ask for their help. The only exception to this is a life-endangering situation, where we could die before our time. Otherwise, it’s up to us to remember to constantly invite angels and archangels into our lives.
You hear the angels’ presence. A loving whisper in your ear that urges you to improve your life. Or an unmistakable shout warning you to, “Watch out!” A voice inside your mind counseling you to reach for the stars, and the sweet strains of music coming from out of nowhere. These are the sounds that angels make. When you suddenly get an idea that dramatically transforms your life, an angel has just delivered a message from God and tucked it safely within your heart. When you have an unmistakable knowingness that angels are near to you, trust that it is so. When they miraculously avert a near-tragedy, or an opportune door “coincidentally” opens for you at just the right moment, you know that angels are helping you in the background. When you walk through nature and feel free and joy-filled, you can be sure that angels walk beside you along the way.
These are souls that have lived at least one earthly existence, and who have evolved and crossed over to the Seventh Level of Heaven. Our Spirit Guides are most often, not related to us. Nor, have they lived in our current lifetime. They, like Spirit Guardians, are highly evolved souls. Having gained entrance into the Seventh Level of Heaven, and receiving the highest gift of grace, they have been given the choice to merge with God, or to be in service as a Spirit Guide. They are also given the gift of choosing whom they wish to guide, through an earthly existence.
Spirit Guides ultimately have a greater degree of power than Guardians in which to guide and protect us. They have the ability to actually perform tasks, and to move and or do physical acts. And, as with any spiritual guidance, in order to receive it, one simply needs to “ask” for their guidance and or protection.
These are guides often found by people who do energy work, such as Reiki. An ascended master who appears as a spirit guide is often a being that led a physical life and has moved on to a higher spiritual plane — for example, Buddha, Krishna, even Jesus. Ascended masters usually work with collective groups of souls — in other words, if you’ve got an ascended master hanging around you, you’re not the only one he or she is helping. Their primary focus is that of helping all of humanity. It’s not uncommon for an ascended master to have access to Akashic records. Also referred to as Master Teacher guides.
