What’s the difference between spirit guides of the Light, and other unseen entities? How do you know if your spirit guide is of the Light, or instead a troublemaker or even a dark entity? We’ve had many experiences with both benevolent and malevolent spirits and want you to understand the difference so you can avoid trouble.

Here’s a recent e-mail we received about the subject:

“Hi guys, I’ve recently become aware of the spirit world and I have been talking to my guardian angel through my friend. I recently discovered that my guardian angel is falling for me. So I guess my question is what do I do if I have the same feelings? I know this kind of thing is forbidden, but what really would happen? I don’t know if you can answer any of this but I need to know. Thanks, Christi”

Real guardian angels or guides of the Light do not fall in love with people who are incarnated. Their love for you is a higher form, unconditional, not conditional like romantic love. They are beyond needing to go through the typical love life roller-coaster game in which humans get caught up. Their role is to help you, not own you, as a traditional relationship partner would attempt.

It’s possible your friend misinterpreted messages from spirit or they were your friend’s imagination.

Another possibility is that this is actually a dark entity or lost soul, which is one who has not yet gone to the Light. They are no more helpful spiritually than someone who is incarnated, and can be harmful. For more information and how to send (cooperative) lost souls to the Light, please read Edith Fiore’s The Unquiet Dead.

Besides falling in love with you, here are seven other things spirit guides of the Light never do:

Drain your energy

Helpers of the Light will make you feel peaceful, uplifted, and loved. Entities who are not of the Light will make you feel fearful, drained, negative and can cause nightmares.

Give bad advice

Spirits of the Light will always give you helpful advice when you ask for help, or at the very least, give you signs that point you in the right direction. Keep in mind that sometimes you aren’t supposed to know all the answers to your questions, and you’ll know what you need to know at the right time.

Use foul language

Helpers of the Light might speak your language, but they typically don’t use words that are associated with anger or lower energy.

Judge you

Man-made religion sometimes involves judgment, but that’s not the purpose of spirits of the Light. Instead, they accept you unconditionally and encourage you to make better choices.

Expect something in return

Helpers of the Light never ask for anything as payment for helping you. On the other hand, make deals with the dark side and you’ll be forced to do their bidding for a very long time and find it extremely difficult to break free.

Tell you to harm yourself or encourage suicide

Guides of the Light would never encourage anything that would hurt you or destroy the opportunity to make the most of your lifetime. They want you to succeed with your earthly tests instead of having to return and repeat the same lessons over again.

Encourage drug or alcohol use

Spirits of the Light understand that drug use and alcohol abuse make life more challenging, interfere with your ability to receive divine guidance and remain connected to the Light, and open the door to negative entities.

The best way to get guidance from spirit guides of the Light is through daily meditation. With experience, you’ll be able to tell what is your imagination, what is interference from dark or lost souls, and what is truly divine guidance.
