Who, or What are our Spirit Guides?
All of us have guides. These include angels, ancestors, spirit guides and animals. All of these are loving energies who are with you to offer support. They make themselves known to you in moments of relaxation, like just when you wake up, or in moments when you have asked for help. Regardless, they are around, and can be easily communicated with – we just need to ask. That might sound like: “Thank you for being with me. I’d like to get to know you better.” That statement is one of free will. You are offering them gratitude and letting them know what you would like.
Working with guides has nothing to do with religion (unless that serves you), and everything to do with making your world bigger.
Who’s who in the spirit world:
Angels are beings of light. They embody a consciousness and intelligence that is available to you. Their job is to bring forward the truth of who we are – to help everything on this planet be as vibrant and positive as possible. The Angels respond to the law of free will, meaning we have to ask them for help. When we do, an entire universe opens up, full of ease and grace. Your connection with them brings forward lightness and peace.
Spirit guides is a broad category, so we’ll break it down a bit.
Ascended Masters are people who walked the Earth and achieved spiritual mastery, like Joan of Arc, Saint Germain and Jesus, who are available to help us.
Masters are people who shared their gifts masterfully while on the Earth, and are here to help you express yourself. These would include Shakespeare, Julia Child, Jim Morrison, Martha Graham and Botticelli – basically anyone you have felt a strong affinity for is likely available to be part of your team and help you.
Spirit Guides are beings from different faiths or traditions who are here to help you. This would include Ganesh, Kali, Brigit, Lady Portia, Padre Pio, Hilarion and Kuan Yin.
