Divine Guides & Helpers: Angels And Spirit Guides

Written By Rachael Alexander

 Divine Guides & Helpers

I grew up in a traditional non-denominational Christian household so it wasn’t uncommon for me to hear about God’s Angels and the holy spirit. But as I transitioned out of religion and into my non-label flavor of spirituality today my belief in light beings and messengers that we call Angels and spirit guides has evolved.

An angel to me is a light being that has the power to step in and help us in moments of need.

I remember as a little girl my mother telling me stories of how Angels had come to help her in dire times. Like there was one time she was driving home from work and she was a little sleepy and found her car in a ditch not shortly after. Because it was night time and not many people around she began to panic, but suddenly she says 6 big men out of no where comes and picks her car up out of the ditch and places it back on the road. Once she was on the road she noticed that the men suddenly disappeared.

Every time I would hear that story and others like it I remember feeling in awe of the mystical experiences and the light beings that we have access to when we need help. But as I’ve matured in my spiritual journey and path I’ve come to learn that not only do these being help us in dire situations but they help us in every day life events as well.

For me, when I am at a crossroads in my life or journeying through a personal or emotional challenge, I see repetitive numbers everywhere or butterflies or dragonflies a lot. I also see repetitive angels, hear owls, and hear certain songs playing over and over in my head with specific messages. It is a reminder for me to be still and listen to the guidance of my own personal guides. The numbers are representative of the presence of my guides, one being a powerful Angel and the others are from the angelic realm as well as people who have lived a human life before.

Now whether or not you believe they exist, or whether you call them Angels, spirit guides, or light being helpers it doesn’t matter. But what I’ve come to understand and simplify in my own journey is that we have access to energetic beings who are here to help us along in our human journey for the purpose of more joy, fulfilment, growth, expansion, safety, and expression.

What are Angels?

According to some spiritual teachers and mystics Angels are light beings and messengers from God to help humanity. They are selfless and egoless helpers of the divine here to help heal and protect humanity. According to some there are millions of them waiting for us to call upon them whenever we need help. There are also Archangels that are more well-known and commonly summoned upon that are here to do more specific huge tasks such as Archangels Michael, Gabriel, Rafael, Miriel and others.

Now here’s my two cents. Whether or not you believe in angels is totally up to you, but if you are like me (a spiritual pragmatist) I believe in utilizing all the help I can get. I also am very aware that I create my own reality, and so I ask myself “does believing in the power of angelic beings here to help and protect me beneficial to me or harmful to me?” And from that question I arrive at my answer.

So I personally choose to believe in Angels because it benefits me and others around me to do so. I know 😉 I’m super practical when it comes to spirituality. And I believe that our beliefs shape our reality – so believing in Angels and spirit guides to me is a no brainer. Because when my subconscious mind is acting a fool on any subject or life experience that I need help in I don’t mind reaching outside of myself for tools and guidance to get me back into alignment with my higher self and soul’s purpose and path.

What do angels do?

According to many, Angels are here to carry out the Divine Order of the universe in this physical plane – and in our experience on Earth. They speak to us through our clairs and appear in front of us in various ways to help us, guide us, and help us live out our soul’s purpose. So what does that look like in our day to day lives or even dire circumstances?

Well I’ve heard stories from dramatic healings all the way down to finding where you put your car keys. But pretty much anything that you need help with there’s an angel available to help you with it.

Even when you feel as though you are completely alone, there are divine companions who are always with you. Before your incarnation they chose to accompany you through your lifetime, from the moment of your first breath, until your last. Spirit guides are highly evolved beings that have completed the cycle of birth and death in the physical plane and are now serving as teachers and guides to further elevate their vibrations. They are as “real” as you are, they are just vibrating at another level and reside in another plane of existence.

They work to guide you by working through your dreams and intuition. That quiet voice you hear is often the voice of your teachers and guides. They may also make themselves known to you through signs and symbols. For me, when I am at a crossroads in my life or journeying through a personal or emotional challenge, I find feathers everywhere. I also see feather tattoos, hawks, and hear certain songs. It is a reminder for me to be still and listen to the guidance of my own personal guides. The feathers are representative of the energy of my guides, one being a powerful Shaman and the others are from the angelic realm.

Some individuals have one guide and others have multitudes, much of this depends on the path and purpose of your life. For instance, a teacher/professor may have several guides, one to guide them through the academic nature of their profession and others to assist them with the great emotional requirements of performing such an important task. Much of who your guides are is indicative of your own personal journey through life.

What are spirit guides?

Spirit guides are companions who journey with us through life, chosen before our incarnation to offer guidance and support. They are highly evolved beings who have completed their own cycles of birth and death, now serving as teachers to help us navigate our spiritual path. Though they exist in a different plane, they are very real, and their energy can be felt through dreams, intuition, and signs.

When you feel lost or need clarity, spirit guides might send messages in subtle ways. Have you ever noticed a recurring sign, like feathers, numbers, or certain songs? These could be gentle nudges from your guides, reminding you that you are not alone. Personally, when I’m facing a difficult decision or an emotional challenge, I often find feathers in the most unexpected places. This gentle reminder from my guides helps me pause and listen to the wisdom within.

The number of guides you have depends on your unique life journey. Some people have a single guide, while others have an entire team. This might relate to your profession, life goals, or even the emotional challenges you face. A teacher might have a guide for their academic pursuits and another to support them emotionally. Ultimately, your guides are tailored to your life’s purpose.

It’s important to note that spirit guides differ from loved ones who have passed on. Although our deceased family and friends may still watch over us, spirit guides are dedicated to guiding us through life’s spiritual journey. Angels, too, are not always guides, though they can step in during moments of crisis or when extra support is needed. If you have an angel as a spirit guide, it could indicate a more complex life path, suggesting you have a significant mission or a challenging journey ahead.

Your spirit guides are always with you, whether you acknowledge them or not. You can’t summon or dismiss them at will; they’re part of your spiritual team. However, you can deepen your connection with them. To start, find a quiet place to meditate and ask your guides to reveal themselves to you. Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t happen immediately—guides often communicate through symbols, signs, and intuition. Trust your inner wisdom and pay attention to the subtle messages that come your way. If you’re struggling to make contact, seeking the help of a psychic or intuitive can offer additional insights.

Working with your spirit guides can lead to profound personal growth. They offer guidance untainted by the distractions of the physical world, focusing on what you need to learn, understand, and embrace for spiritual progress. If you seek guidance on a relationship, for example, your spirit guides will direct you towards the deeper lessons rather than focusing on superficial issues. This broader perspective can be transformative.

If you need healing, ask your spirit guides to work on you as you sleep. Many people have found comfort and physical improvement by requesting their guides’ assistance in this way. Always remember, you are never truly alone. Embrace the beauty of the spiritual realm, and let your guides lead you towards greater wisdom, love, and peace. You don’t need to share your beliefs with the world, but allowing the magic of spirit guides into your life can be a powerful and life-changing experience.

How our divine guides help us

Working with your spirit guides can be a powerful resource for your personal and spiritual growth. Unlike those bound to the physical world, spirit guides bring wisdom that transcends everyday concerns. Because they exist in a higher vibrational plane, they aren’t swayed by the trivial details that often cloud our judgment. When you turn to your spirit guides for relationship advice, for instance, they focus on the deeper aspects—what you’re learning, what you’re teaching, and the greater purpose of your relationship. They won’t concern themselves with mundane issues like unwashed dishes or forgotten anniversaries. Instead, they offer insights that can help you grow and improve the quality of your interactions.

If you ever feel the need for healing, spirit guides can help you. Simply ask them to work on you while you sleep, and many people find that they wake up feeling refreshed and lighter. It’s a gentle reminder that you are never truly alone. When you embrace the wisdom of spirit guides, you open yourself to a higher realm of understanding, where the magic of the unseen can flourish. All it takes is a moment of stillness to let the noise of the world fade away, allowing the energy of your guides to flow through you. As you do this, you’ll find that life has so much more to offer—rich with beauty, peace, and a deeper connection to everything around you.

The choice to believe in spirit guides is always yours. You can choose to see the world as a place of pure logic, or you can choose to believe in the magic that surrounds us. If you’re open to the idea of spirit guides, why not explore it further? You don’t need to broadcast your beliefs to everyone you meet, but you can allow these gentle energies into your heart and life. When you do, you’ll find that they have a unique way of enveloping you in a light of love and understanding, guiding you towards becoming the best version of yourself. It might just be the most rewarding journey you’ll ever embark on.
