What’s The Difference Between Spirit Guides And Guardian Angels?

Life can be tough sometimes, but I find comfort in knowing that there are spirits protecting us as we live our lives. The most personal protective spirits that we have on our side come in the form of spirit guides and guardian angels. Even though they both play very important roles in our life, they’re two different things.

Angels are divine spirits and they have never taken any sort of physical body on Earth

As a result, they have the ability to vibrate at a much higher frequency and deliver messages to us from the divine. Spirit guides, on the other hand, are spiritual beings that at one point were a human being and had a physical and mortal human body.

More often than not, spirit guides are ancestors from long-ago or a deceased loved one/family member. It is possible for some spirit guides to be from dimensions and galaxies unknown by humans at this time. Life will have a lot of ups and downs for us and it’s the guardian angel’s responsibility to keep us safe until it is our time.

When we feel like our life is at risk or we’re extremely stressed out, our guardian angel is there to protect and comfort us. In dangerous situations, our guardian angel steps in and interferes with the situation, manipulating it to our advantage.

Just a quick online search will yield an incredible number of near-death stories, experiences and mysterious happenings where things should have gone bad but miraculously didn’t, thanks to guardian angels at work.

I personally remember hand washing dishes as a teenager once and I was holding a knife, about to wash it with a sponge when my brother ran into the kitchen, bumped me and I lost my footing and slipped on some water underneath me.

I didn’t let go of the knife because everything happened so fast and it was positioned in a way to go right into my chest but by some miracle, it stopped short and only pricked my skin a little bit. I remember being so extremely shocked at how lucky I got. Now I know it was my guardian angel protecting me because it wasn’t my time yet.

Spirit guides, on the other hand, come into our life at different stages to teach us much-needed lessons and guide us throughout our lifetime

They provide guidance for us and help us discover what the right path is for us if we listen. They can either stay with us our whole life or they can come and go as needed, depending on what we need at the time. Unlike guardian angels, spirit guides can’t step in and change our destiny.

They can’t undermine our free will

After our spirit guide relays the best path for us to take, it’s up to us to listen and make it happen. Guardian angels are assigned to us before we are even fully formed in the womb, while we are still little balls of energy. They stay with us for the rest of our life.

They’re with us whether we know it or not and they only want what’s best for us

Next time you’re feeling afraid, stressed, sad or just need help with something that’s troubling you, take some quiet time and ask your angel to help you. It can be hard sometimes to receive their messages because they can be pretty subtle but be on the lookout for new opportunities that come up and weird coincidences you experience.

Their messages can appear in the strangest of forms and in unimaginable places

With your spirit guide, you’re going to have to put forth more effort in the relationship so that it can strengthen. Take the time to get to know your spirit guide and to figure out their method of communicating with you.

Maybe they come to you in dreams or they send messages in the energy world that can only be picked up by skilled psychic mediums. If you’ve tried but feel like you’re unable to communicate with your spirit guide, don’t hesitate to contact an online psychic for help.

They function on a higher wavelength than us and are able to receive and relay messages to us. If a psychic ever tries to tell you that you have an evil spirit in your life, don’t fall for it! Curses and spells aren’t real. That’s why I would only suggest going through psychic networks that have been verified and can be trusted.

Once you have established a relationship with your spirit guide, you will be amazed by how much they can guide you and what important life lessons they’re trying to teach you. Both spirit guides and guardian angels are in our life to help us, despite being two different entities. We need to keep an open-mind to things we cannot see and ask them to come to us.

We should be receptive of their messages and think outside the box when we hear or see something that doesn’t make sense- that could be them trying to communicate with us. Read my article 5 Ways To Know Your Spirit Guide Is Trying To Reach You to know what other signs to look for.
