One of my clients asked me this recently and it stumped me. I didn’t know how to answer. I had never really thought our Spirit Guides in terms of being angels. And yet I’ve explained to clients that some people refer to Spirit Guides as Guardian Angels.
So I went to the source and asked.
My Spirit Guide Stephen explained it this way.
“Yes, we are angels but not always in the form people typically think of angels being. We take on shapes/bodies, characteristics of people, animals or things that will have meaning for the person we are guiding. People think of angels in heavenly robes with wings – and we can appear that way, too, but not always. We aren’t like the heavenly masters Archangel Raphael or Archangel Gabriel and the other Ascended Masters. They have a specific universal purpose for all. For example, Archangel Raphael’s main purpose is for healing and Gabriel’s is for care of children. We as Spirit Guides have a specific purpose too, but for individuals rather than the universe. That’s not to say either that the Archangels can’t be a person’s Spirit Guide. They can do that, too.”
So there you have it. A glimpse into the spiritual realm. Karen will explore in more depth the different types of angels in coming blogs but for now, Spirit Guides or Guardian Angels or whatever you call them – angels here to help us.
