Spirit Guides and Angels: A Cheat Sheet

No Comments

th

A new client was here the other day.  During the reading, I picked up some pretty specific information about one of her spirit guides, but when I relayed it, she admitted that she was a little confused about “guides” versus “angels” -which was which, who does what, etc. No shocker: the subject can be very detailed and dense, so I gave her this handy quick breakdown.  Consider it your spiritual “cheat sheet.”

 

SPIRIT GUIDES: our allies on “the Other Side.” They are most often human, but can also show up as animal or elemental (fairies, nature spirit) entities.   Generally, guides are a spirit who was human at one point.  They help us because they’ve “been there, done that.”  We’re each assigned one “main” guide at birth, who stays with us until we cross back over.

Although they’re always around, actually meeting a guide occurs during regular meditation.  This is the “quiet space” where they can reach you more easily.  If you only meditate for a few minutes each day, you will go a long way towards being able to sense their presence.

-Our main guide is with us from birth to death. Throughout life, other guides come and go as we need them. Ask for an appropriate guide to be sent to you when you require help with something special — like a job, family or health issue.  I wrote more about 8 specific guides here.

You may be given their name during prayer or meditation — maybe not.  You can call them whatever feels “right” to you — they don’t care!

ANGELS: Angels assist us on a more powerful, divine level. Angels have never been human; they are pure, divine energy.  There are many “ranks” of angels; whether you know these ranks or not doesn’t matter.  Simply asking for angelic assistance gets the message across.

-Guides are especially useful when dealing with human “issues.”  Because they understand what we go through, they can send us information, insight, etc. to help us deal with these earthly problems.

Angels, on the other hand, are for when you need to call in the really big guns. Their divine influence really kicks it up a notch or three.  There are no special rules for choosing a spirit guide’s help over an angel’s, or vice versa.  Ask for what will best serve you and leave it up to them.

-While we may actually “see” our spirit guide at some point (usually in our mind’s eye), it’s unlikely that we’ll see our angels (except in super-extreme circumstances – i.e. if they push us out of the path of a car, etc.).

-Guides and angels observe our FREE WILL; therefore, you need to ask them for help.

-The influence of guides and angels is subtle ; look for coincidences, signs, help or info that comes “out of the blue” or just pops into your head.  “Imagination” is the bridge between worlds, so TRUST what you get…and BELIEVE.   Don’t “overthink” — but remember, that whatever signs or information come from a guide or an angel will ALWAYS be positive.  They don’t deal in the negative, so be discerning with what you receive.

-Build a relationship with your guides and angels, as you would any other friend; acknowledge them regularly (say “hello” in the morning, count your blessings at night). Don’t always ask them for stuff – just be with them.

-You can ask for specific assistance (a big wad of money to drop in your lap when you need it) – but be open to the other ways in which their help may show up to address your problem ( a new job offer vs. winning the lottery).

-Track your encounters and experiences with a journal and check back to see how guides and angels have helped you.  And always remember to thank them!  It’s only decent.

The Abundance Tree

Money issues are always a biggie when someone comes to me for a reading. Unless you’re a Trump or Kardashian, cash flow is on most of our minds these days.

 

Now, let’s be real: I believe one has to be practical in money matters (balance the checkbook, be responsible, blah blah blah). But I also believe that our attitude plays a huuuuuge part in our prosperity picture.

If you worry constantly about not having enough, feel limited in how much you can earn, anything that signals “lack” –well, that creates an energetic block. It’s that self-fulfilling prophecy thing.

Money is one of those things that affects us on a very deep level. Changing your beliefs about money can be tricky – but this is where the angels can help.

Angels are super-tough but super-loving beings, with only one thing on their daily “to do” list: to help humans achieve their best life. They are very keyed in to the fact that the Universe ALWAYS provides – its just that we get in our own way. ‘Cause we have a hard time seeing past our own noses.

So here’s an exercise that can help you get in touch with the innate flow of abundance and prosperity that’s always available to you.

THE ABUNDANCE TREE

Start by turning off your phone, taking a bunch of deep breaths and totally relaxing. Take as much time as you need to really get comfortable and quiet.

Now picture yourself standing outside, with a beautiful gate in front of you. On the other side of this gate is a gorgeous private garden housing your very own Abundance Tree. Open the gate and step inside. Take a look around and notice the sights and smells. Really make this a real place.

In the distance, you can see a gorgeous, richly leafed tree. Walk towards it.

As you get closer, you see that the tree is made up of currency. Now you’re right under it, and as you look up into the branches, you see bills of all denominations – even checks made out in your name. The tree is loaded – literally.

As you gaze at this amazing sight, your Guardian Angel arrives and stands next to you. In their hands, they are holding a receptacle. Look at it: is it a small cup, a bushel basket or something even larger? If it feels too “small,” ask your angel for a bigger one – because you deserve it!

Now take that container and stand beneath your tree. All you need to do now is to gently shake it and let the money rain down on you.   Feel all that money falling around you. Feel it as it brushes past your face and hands. Its an endless shower of money! It piles up around your feet.

Now gather it up in your special container– don’t be shy. Gather it alllll up, knowing that there is – and always will be – plenty. For you. For everyone in your life. Because this is your very own Abundance Tree.

Now that you have all the money you need – and know that there is always more where that came from – how do you feel? Take that feeling into your day, tapping into the endless flow of abundance that is always available to you.

Because the Universe does not want you to suffer for lack of resources.

Thank your angel for bringing you to your Abundance Tree – and know that you can visit it anytime you wish. Ask your angel to help you remember the wonderful feeling of having all the money you want or need.

Breathe in, gently coming back to the present moment. Open your eyes – but remember the feeling of having stood in the shower of your Abundance Tree!

 

So I know that I’m loving this exercise. Let me know YOUR results with it!
