From the moment you were born, you had spirit guides with you to help you on your journey of life. These spirit guides are always trying to reach out to communicate with you. Your spirit guides are entities (angels or guardians, some call them) who watch, teach, heal and help you on your physical journey into spiritual awareness.

Every human being on this earth has a group –or posse- of spirit guides and angels watching over us at any given moment. Some of them stay for a lifetime while others serve a purpose for a short while and then go. Not all spirit guides are alike – some are ascended masters, others are animal totems, some are teacher guides who are with us only for a short while in order to help us and “hold our hand” while we learn a particular soul/life lesson.

Here are some common spirit guide types:

Ancestral Guides:

As the name indicates, an ancestral guide is someone who shares some familial history with you. It could be an aunt, sibling or parent who passed away and you’ve known in this lifetime, or it could be an ancestor who died long before you were born.

Teacher Guide:

These guides are here to teach you something and guide you along a certain path. They typically symbolize an archetype such as a wise old man, a warrior, or a nurturing mother. These guides are here to help you deal with a particular problem or work through a certain life lesson. They are known to come to you in dreams or during meditation. They don’t stay throughout your entire life and leave when their job is done.

Animal Guides/Animal Totem:

As with spirit guides who appear in human form, you can also have animal guides throughout your lifetime. When you find an animal that you have a particular affinity to, this is likely your animal totem. u can have several animal guides through out your life. In some spiritual traditions, such as various Native American or shamanic paths, a person may have an animal totem, which provides teaching and/or protection.

Spirit guides/angels/guardians are not limited to the aforementioned types – these are just common spirit guide types.
