6 Main Differences Between Angels and Spirit Guides


It is not surprising many get this mixed up and think their loved ones in spirit are in fact their Angels and if that works for them and gives them comfort I don’t have a problem with it.  However, I am believe there is quite a difference between the two and have created this simple list to help you understand the 6 main differences between Angels and Spirit Guides.




Angel’s main role is to keep you safe. Spirit Guides main role is to give you guidance.
Everyone has at least one Angel and up to three Angels. You can have many different guides who will come and go through out your life.
Angels have not been on the earth plane. Spirit Guides have been on earth before.
Angels need your permission to help you. Spirit doesn’t need your permission to help you.
Angels are not a loved one who has passed over. Your Spirit Guide maybe a loved one that has passed over or maybe someone you have never met before but has some expertise to share with you.
Your Angel will never leave you and stays with you all your life. Your Spirit Guide will change depending what help you are needing.


Connecting with your Angel and Spirit Guide are a lot easier than you think.  This month in Angel club we are are covering all you need to know to connect with your Spirit Guide.  You can find out more by clicking here.

Or if you would like to meet your Guardian Angel I am giving away copies of my free meditation to meet your Angel below.

  1. Thank you this is so help full xx

    • Glad you found it helpful. x

  2. I’ve been asking for help from the angels for the past 13 months to help me with a particular stressful situation. Whilst they take my stress away the situation remains. Is there a reason why they do not help?

    • This is a great question and one I will answer in a blog, please look out for it Jayne. Thanks for posting. x

    • They Angels always help and you have said they have taken your stress away. We are the creators of our own reality and the Angels will always support us. However, if you are focusing on the situation and it being there that is what you will get more of. x

  3. Interesting read. Thanks Amanda xxx

    • Glad you enjoyed it x
