Spirit Guides: Get to Know the 6 Different Types

Regardless of where you come from or who you are or what your life is like, it is reassuring to know that you have spirit guides that are sending you helpful messages. 

In this article, you will be able to identify your specific and unique guides and open yourself up to their wisdom.

The Six Different Types of Spirit Guides

If you are into spirit guides, you most likely already know that you have spirit guides that have been with you your whole life, even before you were born.

Interestingly, other guides came to you as you needed them at certain (and various) times in your life.

This might not be common knowledge but you can also use your free will to summon more spirit guides.

Your very own spiritual guidance squad, the team of spirit guides assigned to have your back can include any (or all) of the following:

01: Guardian Angels

Guardian angels are exclusive to you.

And here’s something that will surprise many—we each have more than one!

Guardian angels are devoted to just helping you out.

You can call on them anytime you are in need of immediate assistance.

Your guardian angels will also love you unconditionally, forever.

It is important to keep in mind that guardian angels are non denominational.

This means they work with people regardless of their spiritual beliefs and faith.

02: Archangels

Archangels are considered the leaders in the angel world.

As such, they have a very large and powerful energy signature.

If you are sensitive to energy or an empath, you might feel an energy shift in the room when you call on an archangel.

Each archangel has a specialty.

For instance, Archangel Raphael is known to help with healing.

He can also help countless people all at once.

03: Spirit Animals

Spirit animals can be the pets you once had who passed away and have now become a part of your spiritual guidance squad.

Spirit animals can also be any of the animals that have something to teach you.

Case in point: a wolf can show you how important it is to get your survival needs met.

Or a peacock can teach you about the importance of owning your beauty and your gifts.

04: Ascended Masters

Ascended masters like Mother Mary or Buddha were once mortals, living lives of powerful and deep spiritual influence and growth.

They have earned a special place as leaders in the spirit world.

They also serve as guides or teachers to humans who call on their help.

05: Helper Angels

Helper angels, also known as “freelance angels” are assigned to help humans in specific situations like finding the best office space or finding great friends.

06: Departed Loved Ones

Family members or loved ones who have passed on may choose to be one of your trusted spirit guides and support you actively in very practical ways like sending great career opportunities your way. 

Any human who has passed on can be your spirit guide, regardless if you were close to them or not while they were alive.

How Your Spirit Guides Communicate With You

Spirit guides will enter your life by sending you signs.

These signs are also referred to as synchronicities.

Carl Jung defined synchronicity as a “meaningful coincidence.”

For instance, your spirit guide is sending you a sign when you find a book about improving romantic relationships from out of the blue after longing to improve your relationship with your significant other.

Spirit guides can also communicate to you through number sequences like 111.

Spirit guides can also communicate to you through music by letting you hear a song that lifts you up after a long and rough day.

Spirit guides can also provide guidance to you through dreams.

Over to You

It is reassuring to know that no matter how tough life gets, you have a lot of spirit guides you can summon for help and who will be there to help you every step of the way.
