Getting to Know Your Spirit Team

Artwork by Marina Petro

Your Spirit Team was assigned to you before you entered into your physical body and is here to guide, comfort, protect and reassure your soul on it’s earthly journey.

Everyone has a Spirit Team, and the more you invite their guidance in, the stronger the role they will play in your life.

There are 3 main beings that make up your Spirit Team:

1.) Spirit Guides

What are Spirit Guides?

Spirit Guides were once human but have ascended to a higher level of consciousness to become angelic guides.

Spirit Guides are assigned to you because they have a deep understanding of the soul lessons that you need to learn in this life time. They can also be a religious figure, a soulmate, an animal, or a loved one who has crossed over.

Spirit Guides are there to offer you guidance, support and clarity to the situations in your life. They will never tell you what to do, but they will always guide you to the right answer.

Most of us have more than one Spirit Guide and can connect with them through simply asking and staying open to the signs.

2.) Guardian Angels

Unlike Spirit Guides, Guardian Angels have never been human before and have only ever existed in Divine form.

They are high energy beings who are here to protect and watch out for your soul on its earthly journey.

They can be called upon when you need protection, or when you are feeling frightened or scared about a situation. They can also offer comfort, guidance and reassurance.

Most of us have more than one Guardian Angel and can connect with them by simply inviting them in and staying opening and trusting to the signs that are received.

3.) Archangels

Archangels are the master Angels and oversee all souls on earth and even other Angels and Spirit Guides.

They are of an extremely high vibration and can be evoked to help through any problem or issue, or when you need protection. No problem is too small for an Archangel!

While Guardian and Spirit guides can sometimes be unique to the individual, everyone has access to the same Archangels.

Culturally, the names of the Archangels may change, but these are the main Archangels that most people identify with:

Archangel Michael: a powerful archangel of protection, helps you to release fear, worry, clear negative energies and find lost belongings.

Archangel Gabriel: the archangel of communication, new beginnings and strength. Can help you to find your higher calling.

Archangel Metatron: is the Divine record keeper and a powerful spiritual teacher. Can help you to release and let go of the past and can help you tap into your Divine connection.

Archangel Raphael: the main archangel that oversees healing of all living creatures. Inviting him in can also help activate your own self-healing process.

Archangel Haniel: the archangel of energy, vitality and passion. She can release lower vibrations and evoke healing and love.

Archangel Ariel: a powerful archangel that is can be called upon to evoke personal power and strength.

Archangel Muriel: the archangel of peace and harmony, she oversees emotions, unconditional love and compassion. She can also help protect those with intuitive or empathic abilities.

Archangel Chamuel: the archangel of protection, peace and compassion.

Archangel Uriel: the light of God, she is an illumination of light for all human souls. She represents openness and willingness to receive love and allows you to deepen your spiritual connection.

Archangel Zadkiel: the archangel of cleansing, forgiveness and freedom. Can be called upon to help you raise your vibration and bring about forgiveness to a situation.

Archangel Azrael: assists souls in making the transition from physical life to the after life.

Everyone has a Spirit Team which is always available at any time, no matter the circumstances or the level of enlightenment.

It may seem simple, but connecting with your Spirit Team is really about welcoming them in to your life, keeping an open mind and trusting so you can remain open to their messages.
