How To Connect To Your Spirit Guides And Angels

Everyone, whether you know it or not, has spirit guides and angels with them. There are several ways to how you can connect to your spirit guides and angels. Keep in mind that you do not have to be a professional psychic in order to connect with these energies.


What's The Difference Between Angels And Spirit Guides?

Angels are a completely different type of energetic being. They have never incarnated as a human being. Angels are just names we give those energies. They're extremely high vibrational and very powerful beings that are guardians and keepers of the realms, basically.

On the other hand, spirit guides a lot of times have incarnated as some sort of being, whether it's from earth or elsewhere. They've had physical incarnations, and that's why they're more suited to help us with earthly experiences.

What Are The Power Differences Between Angels And Spirit Guides?

Angels are more powerful; they have more duties and permissions. They are the ones that can interfere physically. They're the ones that can take the wheel of your car and redirect you back or push you out of the way of a car if it’s not your time to go yet. For example, you may hear a story where a person got in a car accident, got thrown out of the windshield, and the only injuries were scrapes and bruises.

I've talked about this once in a portal video, where angels can open up portals and move you. It happens so fast, you don't even know what happened because it feels like there was no break in time. Experiencing this type of angel intervention can feel surreal when they open up a portal and transport you.

A lot of people might say “Oh it's probably my grandpa in the afterlife who might have done it and saved my life”, but it actually could have been an angel. Grandpa was probably there trying to help too, but the angel had the power to do it.

Spirit guides will be more trying to guide you and you might feel or hear them say “Don't do it” or they'll try to surround you with energy.

Occasionally, family members and loved ones can manipulate things but again it's like a dance for them. No one can violate your free will at the end of the day.

There is a hierarchy and order on the other side; however, it's not driven by ego. It's driven by efficiency so that we can get all the help we can get, in the best way possible. It's not like a corporation; it's more because those are their duties. Both angels and spirit guides’ souls need to grow too. That’s another reason why it’s broken up in a hierarchy system.

Can Angels And Spirit Guides Can Protect Me From Evil Spirits?

Here's the thing: If it's in your soul contract to experience something like that, they can't violate your free will or your soul contract. However, what they can do is if you ask for help from them, it shows that you're aware and that you're willing to use your free will to empower yourself through a situation. If you ask them for help, they can give you support that doesn't violate your free will.

For example, let's say something is supposed to happen, because the trajectory for the rest of your life is set into motion because of this one moment, or experience that is going to cascade into the future. They can't prevent that experience from happening, but they can give you support to help you get you through it.

Now, if you use your free will and you're about to get hit by a car and it’s not supposed to be your time to go to the afterlife yet, an angel can jump in and move you out of the way or a spirit guide can be give you a gut feeling that says “Don't do it”.

They both are walking the line between your freewill and destiny, and they offer support in those gray areas.

What does the hierarchy of spirits on the other side look like?

It's very complex and I'm still trying to learn it. What I have found so far based on the beings I’ve seen:

First off, there’s Source Energy, the epicenter that's the most powerful and it’s where we all come from. Then there are these concentric rings around Source Energy. Beings that are closest to that Source Energy have the most power, but it's not because they're better beings. They were created for those specific duties, so they may have that certain purity of not having had incarnated in human form.

I haven't fully figured out how to classify them, I'm only able to classify it in human terms people understand. There are several levels of beings that have not incarnated in human form, that go beyond just angels. There are beings I’ve met, like that one time Minerva came to me. She may have been above an angel, almost like a demigod, but not in the way that we think of, like the character in the movie “Thor”.

These beings can be considered almost like demigods, and that may have inspired ancient pagans. They really did see them as gods, but in reality they could have been extraterrestrials that had a lot of power, or they could have been actual beings that broke directly off Source Energy that were powerful. Then people interpreted them in a human form, just how people do with certain religions.

Then you have these very high-level beings that manage the angels. Then you have the archangels, and the angels that report to them. Those angels aren’t less cool or less awesome. Their vibration starts to bridge closer to us humans so they are able to handle more earthly things.

I see at least two or three different tiers that accompany each angel. To visualize, you can think of a department in a corporation where Archangel Michael's is the protection department. He's got the team of protection angel associates. Those angels have beings that they manage.

It's hard for people to pick up on angels because they're very high vibrational. There are other beings that people might think are a spirit guide, but it's actually a lower-level type of angel, like an associate-level angel. An example of a story of an encounter with them is when someone says, “I was walking down the street and an old man came up to me. He told me this [really powerful thing]. Then I turned around and he was gone .” That’s exactly the kind of thing that those angels (associate level) might come down and do because they can manifest more easily here on earth for just a very brief time. They can't maintain that for very long because it's still very hard on their vibration.

There are several layers of angels starting from Archangel, but I have not fully fleshed them out. I'm sure over the course of my life, I'll start to hear and see more, but it's vast.

Keep in mind that we're no less than an angel or one of these demigod-like energies.

What Do My Spirit Guides & Angels Look Like?

As we talk about potentially seeing guides clairvoyantly, it's important to know that guides can be anything. They can represent themselves as absolutely anything. It really just depends on what you need to see.

For example, some people are more open to seeing the more unique forms of their guides, so their guides might look kind of like mythical creatures. If you find that’s too scary, they might change to a more human form that's more palatable for you at that time. Then as you grow, you might start to be able to accept them in a different form. You might feel that they're the same guide, but they can look different over time.

Angels all feel very different when I talk to them, they each look like different pure auras of color. I personally do not often see them as winged humanoid beings. Other people may feel more comfortable seeing them as pictured in religious scriptures, because that is aligned with their cultural point of reference.

Are Some Spirit Guides Our Loved Ones Who Have Passed Away?

Loved ones can act as a guardian, but they're not spirit guides. You could still pray and talk to them to ask for help, but they're not trained for that necessarily. Spirit guides are specifically contracted to do certain things, whereas your family members will come in whenever and just kind of help you in different ways but not in the same way as an angel or spirit guide would. Your family can work with your guides and your angels to help set things up for you, look out for you, take care of you, and warn you about things.

Spirit guides could have had a lot of reincarnations as humans, or as other types of beings, such as aliens or elemental energies.


Do I Have The Same Amount Of Spirit Guides And Angels Throughout My Entire Life?

Each of your spirit guides has a different purpose, as they come in and out at different phases of your life, depending on what you need to grow and learn at that time. Some guides do stick with you throughout your entire life, but it's not uncommon for guides to change guard, or even evolve to different forms to meet your needs.

How Many Angels On Average Does A Person Have With Them?

I see a lot of times at least one angel that works with people. It depends, though. There are some people that come and have four or five angels. I'd say when they have that many angels around them, a lot of times I do notice they tend to be the type of person that can help a lot of other people. They need a little extra support because it's really hard to be a natural healer, as it can be a very difficult life, so I do see those types of energies that come in to protect and guide. It really depends on what kind of path you're walking and what kind of soul contract you have.

What Are Ways My Spirit Guides And Angels Are Trying To Connect With Me?

It all depends on what your strength is. Some people might feel or see something when they're dreaming or meditating and that could be guidance.

Everyone has a different natural psychic tendency or gifts; the information will come to you in a variety of different ways. It could be through a variety of any of the following “Claires”: Clairvoyance (seeing), Clairaudience (hearing), Claircognizance (knowing), Clairsentience (feeling), Clairscent (smelling), Clairtangency (touching), Clairgustance (tasting), Clairempathy (emotion).

Spirit guides and angels love to give signs and messages through other people that are around you, such as friends, mentors, or family members. They can even communicate through pets and animals such as birds, butterflies, and insects. They can also put synchronistic events in front of you, so you are aware that there's a pattern forming, but you may not fully know what's going on.

They can also send messages and give you information through dreams. That's why a dream interpretation or dream journaling can be very powerful in understanding what messages are being passed to you when you are in that relaxed state, when your consciousness is readily expanding beyond your physical body.

You can also get messages from your spirit guides and angels through certain divination tools, articles, or books that you may be suddenly drawn or compelled to buy and read.

You also might suddenly feel compelled to go on a trip to drive or visit somewhere. Thus, you can be guided to people, places, or certain things. It can come to you like a sudden urge or flash of insight. A lot of times it comes almost like a gut feeling. It's more of an “I need to do this” feeling.

Your spirit guides and angels are there for you to communicate with you all the time through anything and everything that they see you're paying attention to, so just stay open and know that the best thing to do is to not judge the information that's coming through if it feels like it's of the light or of guidance or teaching. If it's a dark, negative, or destructive thought, that is not from your guides as that’s not high vibrational beneficial energy. Your spirit guides and angels would not put forth that kind of information or ever act in that way, so that's another key thing to remember.

Do I Need To Know How Many Spirit Guides I Have, Who They Are, Or What They Look Like In Order To Connect Better With Them?

Even though I'm a psychic medium, I know only some of my guides. What’s more important is that I just know that they're there, so I don't care to know all their names. Sometimes I get curious, but I can feel that they're supporting me and that's the most important thing.

You don't need to know exactly what they're wearing or what they look like; that's a very human three-dimensional requirement. Therefore, you can actually loosen up the load and pressure on yourself. There are a lot of meditations out there about how to figure out what your guide looks like, how to find their name, and what their background is. However, do not get hung up on these pieces of information, because they are not necessary for you to be able to feel the support from your guides, and communicate with them.

All you have to know is that they're there ready to help. And all you have to do is ask for help and feel their presence. The important thing to know is that you have an army of support behind you.

Each of your spirit guides have different energies. I have some guides that are more energetic, some guides that are very peaceful, some that are kind of stoic, some that are comforting like a grandmother feeling. Feel that energy. It's a similar feeling as if you were to meet a human being and get a vibe off of them.

Do You Need To Do A Ritual In Order To Be Able To Connect To Your Spirit Guides And Angels?

You don’t need to do rituals, but they can be a good gateway if you are new to this and if it helps you to feel connected and safe as you ease into learning and become more accepting of your abilities.

For example, it is beneficial especially when you're first starting out to set the ambiance where you may want to do a meditation or some sort of scrying ritual which is where you're using something like a black onyx mirror, crystal ball, or pendulum.

It might be beneficial to turn down the lights a little bit, light some candles that make you feel good, put some good aromas in the air like essential oils, and say a little opening intention or prayer.

An example of what you can say is “I am setting the intention to only speak with my guides and receive information that's only of the light for mine and everyone's highest and greatest good.”

What Are Some Ways On How To Connect To Spirit Guides And Angels?

A way you can communicate and get messages from your spirit guides and angels is by automatic writing, relaxing your body, and letting information come through that way. You can also meditate and request to see what information your guides can give you.

Forms of active meditation can engage your body, so it can go in an automatic state which allows your consciousness to go to a higher level. An example is taking a nature walk because you're in nature and you're moving. Other active meditations could also just even be driving around, taking a shower, doing the dishes, and folding laundry. It’s doing the repetitive tasks over and over which occupies your body so that your mind can go higher. That's why it works for a lot of people and they can get ideas or solutions that seem to come out of nowhere.

What If My Strength Isn’t Clairvoyant And I Don’t SEE My Spirit Guides & Angels? If I’m Claircognizance (Knowing), Clairsentience (Feeling), How Do I Know I’m FEELING My Spirit Guides And Angels In A Meditation?

It can be a lot of different things and it can build over time. If you're still a little anxious, worried, or are unsure, it might come in very faintly at first as if you’re feeling a presence. It can feel like someone is standing next to you, but you can't quite articulate anything else. It could also feel like someone is touching you, or you could feel a tingle in one of your chakras or another part of your body.

A common thing that you can feel is this overwhelming feeling of love or a feeling of peace or tranquility; all of a sudden you feel as if your worries have lifted. It’s a reassuring feeling. That can be another way a guide can be letting you know that they're there.

When Someone Is In Their Darkest Moments In Life And Are Doubting Everything And Are Contemplating Self-Harm, What Do Spirit Guides Or Angels Visually Look They Are Doing?


Okay, so the fact that you're still here reading this means your guides are working with you.

What I’ve seen them do is that they'll stand around the person like a circle, and they'll push energy into the person’s field to try and bolster the person up, enough where they can get through the difficult circumstance. The person may still not feel great or healed completely from it, but the person will be able to get through it so that they don't actually take their own life, interfering with their soul contract. Then there are times for example a person may be trying to do some self-harm, but they aren’t successful, or someone walks in and stops them, and they end up surviving it.

Spirit guides and angels will do all these things to guide you. Especially if you ask for help, they're going to come around you and start bolstering your energy. I’ve even seen angels coming around and protecting a person’s energy, nurturing it. They go in and they're adjusting your chakras, changing the ambient energy around you, and clearing energy in your space.

As long as you ask them for that, they will come in. You can say “Help me in the way that's best for my highest good,” and they'll take the liberty and adjust energies, but you have to give them that kind of permission.

Some people could argue, “Well, where were you when I was in my darkest time?” Did you ask and give them permission to help you? Also, sometimes we are meant to experience darkness and to learn to gain strength from those experiences, and they cannot interfere with lessons we have placed in our soul contract to learn.

Also, know that the help you receive is likely not going to be a quick miracle fix. However, your guides can help you get to the next day, and the next day, and then over time, heal. We want instant gratification, but sometimes it really is just getting you through that day, even if it wasn't a good day. We have to think of it in terms of long term help that they give us.

Spirit guides and angels do work very hard, and they have to let us make “mistakes”. It's not easy for them to watch us do these things, but they're so full of love and acceptance that they know that is part of our experience here on earth.

They Say There Are Spirit Guides For Everything. So Does Everyone Have A Parking Spirit Guide, A Healing Spirit Guide, Etc.?

I think it's really cute that people give them labels but really it's unnecessary. A “parking spirit guide” is really maybe more of an Earth Guide, one that can help more with the earthly logistics such as meeting deadlines, getting through tough times with work, or with home life.

Then you might have a guide that has more experience in the spiritual side of things that is a spiritual master, who might be there to help you get to a higher level of consciousness. They may put healing things in your life or guide you towards certain pursuits of knowledge.

Then you might have a guide that's specific for getting through education, all types of educational experiences. They might get you through all those tough times and different schools that you go to.

Side note: Because I'm listing these examples doesn’t necessarily mean you have this type of guide. It depends on what purpose you're here to serve in this life.

For example, if you're the kind of person that's meant to experience marriage (ie. you get married early, you stay married your whole life, you have lots of kids), you might have this domestic type of life, so you might have a guide that specifically has experience with that domestic life, and they might lead you to fulfill that path. Of course you have free will, but you might have a guide that's meant specifically for domestic things.

As you add experiences in your life, a new guide may appear. So, they might be there just to get you through this one relationship or one circumstance. Let's say you're starting a business, you will have a business guide. It all just depends.

To sum it up, think about it more like, what kind of energy a guide is governing.


I hope this was insightful and informative for you in learning more about how to connect to your spirit guides and angels and finding out who these wonderful and powerful beings you are surrounded by!
