The Difference Between a Relative and a Spirit Guide

Yes, of course a relative who you were close to can connect with you. They can give you advice and help you feel supported and loved. One thing most people don’t know is that spirit guides go through a very rigorous training program before they are allowed to be guides for us. That is the primary difference between a relative giving you guidance and the work of the spirit guides.

Spirit guides have rigorous training, a very long apprenticeship program and there is ongoing review of their work. It’s not an easy job and they take the responsibilities of being your guide¬†very seriously.

An example to highlight the difference.

Here is one way to think of the difference between a relative giving you guidance and the work the spirit guides do for us. It’s kind of like the level of care you would get when you are sick. Your grandmother or other relative will take good care of you and help you feel better. This is very different from the level of care or treatment you would get from a doctor. Both have very good intentions, but the doctor has more training and does this professionally.

We all have spirit guides, but not all of us have relatives offering guidance.

Some of us have relatives offering support from the other side and some of us don’t. There isn’t a right or wrong, or good and bad with that. It just is.

What is true and consistent for all of us is that we all have spirit guides. Some of us have a good awareness of our guides and some of us don’t. Again, there isn’t a right or wrong, or good and bad with that. It just is. What is nice is that if you want to, you can choose to reconnect with your Trueself and connect with you guides. You can have stronger, clearer communication with your guides.
