No, not at all.
You don’t have to be religious to connect with your Spirit Guide, Ascended Masters, Angels or any form of Spirit.
Spirit doesn’t see creed, colour, sex or sexual orientation.
Spirit sees beyond all these earthly trappings and sees only our true selves – our spirit and the light we are in the world. It doesn’t matter what you believe, or look like. Spirit wants to connect with each and every one of us to love and guide us.
Why do Guides that are tied to certain religions appear then?
While religious figures like Jesus, Mary, Vishnu, or Buddha, do show up as Guides or to relay messages, they don’t come with religious intent. They come to bring you support and guidance in the area they are most known for. Guides take on forms that match our needs. (Read about why Guides take particular forms).
For example, Mary is most known for being a Mother. When she shows up for someone it is usually for one of two reasons. One is, that person has a mothering/nurturing bent and Mary is there to help with that. The other is, that person needs a Mother figure in his/her own life and Mary has come to be that figure.
Can I be religious and connect with Spirit?
Yes, most definitely! The majority of faiths are rooted in connections with Spirit. Most religions believe in angels that serve as messengers or intermediaries for God. (Read more on this)
Anyone can connect with Spirit. Spirit is here to love and guide us all.
