Guides of all types

QUESTION: Masters: Would you enlighten me about Angels and spirit guides – Do they intervene in our life and if so when do they do that or refrain from being involved. Do they really hear us when we speak to them? ~Mary, USA

ANSWER: Souls who are not in a physical form frequently act as advisors for those on Earth. The operative word here is advisors; although most people refer to them as guides, they do not intervene and take the lead in your life’s journey.

All souls have total freedom of choice, so each decision for a direction in their lifetime must be made by them. You may argue that those who are under the influence of other humans who demand they do exactly as instructed are not making choices – but they are. Their choice is to give up their power to exercise freedom of choice to those controlling individuals. The only lesson they learn in this scenario is to be controlled and experience a total lack of self-confidence and esteem.

When souls incarnate into human bodies, they ask friends back home to assist them by acting as guides. What they are asking is that the spirits provide information to them that they are unable to see or recognize on their own. These guides do not give unsolicited assistance. They must wait for those in human form to ask for help. They will not tell you what to do.

Nonphysical spirits can hear anything that is addressed to them, whether they are at Home in the light or have chosen to stay in the third dimension as discarnate or negative beings. Beings of the light must always wait to be asked and must tell the truth as it exists. Negative spirits, being in the duality of Earth, can interfere any time they choose and can mislead, make demands, and try to trick humans.

If you do not specify you wish to speak only to beings of the light when you address the universe, you invite negative energies to butt in if they choose. If you are communicating with spirits and they tell you that you must do something, they are not from the light. Beings of the light give you options but refrain from imposing their beliefs.

All souls who are nonphysical are considered to be spirits. The term “angel” has a lot of religious connotations, but it may also refer to souls who have chosen to be guides but have not incarnated and spent time in a human body. Some of the earliest pieces of Source who became individualized were grouped together as angels. It is a descriptive term and not an indication of a higher status than other souls. All souls are the same.
