What’s the difference?
So before I get into the main questions people have, I want to tell you my belief. As I learn more I may change my mind on what is true to me or I may add more. 🙂 I believe you choose your Spirit Guide or they choose you. You may or may not have had a past life with them before this life. You meet up with them on the Other Side (a close friend and/or have shared a past life with them) and ask if they would like to be your Spirit Guide. And whoever is your Spirit Guide right now, obviously, agreed to do it. And we often have Spirit Guides of different origins and animal guides (sometimes called our Totem Animal(s)). Spirit Guides and Angels are two separate entities. They both are here to help us, in different ways though, of course. And there are more than one of each for all occasions and events during your life here. 🙂
Spirit Guides vs. Angels
Angels are, I believe, on a slightly different plane, and seem to have a slightly different purpose for working with humans. Angels, I think, especially Guardian Angels (there are many types of Angels as well as Spirit Guides) seem to be more the type to hover nearby and assist in emergencies even without our asking them to. However, Angels (unless it’s an emergency) must be asked for their help in your life. So ask and they are more than willing and even waiting for you to just ask so they can help you (or your highest and best good of course!) Spirit Guides are the same as us, only on the Other Side. Meaning they have lived at least one life before and are now assisting us from the Other Side as we agree prior to coming here. Our Spirit Guides have the knowledge of the Other Side and our blueprints (what we want to accomplish in life on Earth.) There is much more to it than this small description, but we’ll keep this as is for now. And I do believe that we have many Spirit Guides to help us through our many different endeavors in life (to teach us, etc.), but still having the one main Master/Teacher Spirit Guide. It’s quite possible that as Spiritual Guides and Human we are Angels in Training!? Say what!? You never know how far our evolution will take us! As we ascend it could be…. We just won’t know all the answers for sure till we cross over. I talk in depth about Angels in my book How I Found My True Inner Peace in this intrigues you.
Spirits vs. Ghosts
Spirits and Ghosts (had to touch base on this one quickly.) They are two different things. Although each can contact you, if they choose to do so. Ghosts are entities that are “Earth Bound”. (See my Ghost Facts Page for more information on Ghosts.) They are caught between this plane of existence and the Other Side. They have died, but have not walked through the tunnel to get to the Other Side. Some may know they are dead and choose to stay for their many different reasons. Some don’t know they have died, whether it was from a traumatic death or not. Either way, they are just like us, without a physical body. Ghosts will be (usually) just as they are when they were living. Meaning personality wise. So if they were nice, they will most likely be nice. If they were malicious. They will most likely be malicious. They haven’t passed over to the Other Side yet, so they aren’t surrounded with that unconditional Love and Knowledge yet. These entities need help crossing over, usually. Spirits are entities that have crossed over to the Other Side. They have lived a life or many. They are also just like us, only without their physical body anymore. They are on the other side in a plane of existence with love and boundless knowledge. I do believe once over there, they still grow spiritual in other ways (like guiding us in our incarnations on Earth). Or they (us) will choose to come back (incarnate) into life again to perfect our Souls and to help the God experience.
