There are many various beliefs regarding the Guardian Spirts. Most believe that they are Angels assigned to you at birth, some believe that they are dead ancestors come to watch over you, a few feel that they are Faeries or Nature Spirits who wish to guide you. Some believe that the guardians were once Humans, but that they reached a sort of enlightenment or holy state of sainthood, which caused them to be transfigured into guardians at the time of their death (the Virgin Mary, Jesus, Joan of Arc, and Saint Francis are all examples of this belief). There are even some who believe that the guardians are an alien race from some distant galaxy, who have taken a vested interest in our planet, and has assigned members of their race to look after members of our race.
There are countless theories about the guardian spirits, some claiming that the guardians are here simply to watch and learn, while others claim that they take an active part in preventing our physical harm, and still others claim that their role is to provide inner love and emotional support, while others say that they are here to whisper advice on how to live our lives.
Some theories say that every person born has a single guardian who watches over them through out their entire life or even throughout many life times. Others say that a guardian is assigned a family or house to watch over and protects everyone in that family or house. Still others say that each city, town, or region is assigned a single guardian and it watches over every one in it's assigned area. And finally, there are others who believe that each person has, not one, but several guardians, each guardian assigned to looking of a selected area of your life (sleep, career, eating, childhood, old age, ect.).
The question we must now ask ourselves, is: "Who is right?". My answer to that question is this: "They all are." How can all of those views be correct? Well, let's think about it for a moment.
We are, ourselves, spirit beings who have chosen to come to Earth to esperiance what it is like to live a physical existance. We were spirit beings before we were born. When we die, we will become spirit beings once again. This fact tells us that it is possible for your ancestors to become a spirit guide at some point in your life, maybe not through all of it, maybe just for a single fleeting moment, say after your grandmother died, you were very upset, but than had a dream or vision of her comming to you and telling you that she was alright now, that you need not be upset. This would be a case of an ancestor guide coming to comfort you.
Than you have the Fey. What are Faeries exactly? What do they do and say? They all do and say about the same thing: "save the planet, save the animals, protect the environment, keep the Earth green for the children of tommorow". The Fey are the enviromentalists of the spirit world. They teach us to take care of the Earth for future generations.
The Guardian Angels guide us through dangerous times to places of saftly. The Avenging Angels punish the ones who have straied from their assignments and are hindering the ability of others to do their assignments. They work together as a team to see to it that you are safe and can get your job done.
Every being in the spirit world has a job, a purpose, a goal, an assignment. Like you, they are here on Earth to do a job and get it done. Some of them are assigned regions, others are assigned individuals. Some will stay with you forever, others will drop into your life and than be gone without you ever knowing they were there.
And where do we as Humans fit into this picture? Some, get all high and mighty and say that we as Humans are superot, than they point out their proof, pointing to the angels and saying: "See how they jump to serve our every need? They serve us because we are their masters and lords over them. They jump to serve our every need, because they have no choice but to serve us higher beings." This is a foolish and vain way of looking at angels and one that could very well lose you your angel. Yes, your guardian angel may very will STOP helping you! Why? Step outside of your vanity for a moment and take a look at the big picture: You are a child. You are in school. Are your teachers your servents because they teach you? Is your principle your servent because he provides you with textbooks? Humans are not superior to Angels. Can you call down fire from the sky? Can you become visible or invisable at will? Can you stand in front of a moving bus and it not hurt you? No? Why not? If you are so superior, shouldn't you be able to do everything an Angel can do and more?
We are children. We are here to learn. Earth is our school. The Angels are our teachers. Can the studant be more superior than the teacher?
We are spirit beings, but we are young spirit beings. Being spirit beings, means that when we are born we came from somewhere and when we die we go to somewhere. The question is, where? Think about it. It's a BIG universe out there. It doesn't make good sense for all of the deep space and only one planet have life on it. But what if we ourselves live many lives, and each life we live, we live on a differant planet? And as we progress from one life to the next, we grow spiritually, until we advance to becoming the teachers or spirit guides of those who have not yet advanced? Logic tells us that this is true, and tells us that we after many millinia will eventualy become the guardians who come to Earth to protect and watch over us. And that Heaven literaly is the Heavens aka the Universe.
There are a lot of us out there. Over six billion people alive on Earth at this very moment. That's a lot of people. Every one of them has a job. Not a job, as in a place to work, but a job as in a thing that they are meant to do, more like a homework assignment. An assignment that they must successfully finish before moving on to the next assignment. Earth is a school and life is it's classroom. As young spirits we are given an assignment to complete and we take a trip to school, to be born, so that we can live a physical life here on Earth in order to complete our assignment. Once each person has completed their job, there is no more reason for them to live on this Earth and their spirit leaves their physical body and moves on to it's next assignment.
The physical body dies, but the spirit body lives on. Over six billion people are alive on Earth at this very moment, and over a million of them will die before you finish reading this sentance. By the time you finish reading this sentance a million more will have been born. The spirit world is a busy place all those millions of spirits coming and going each day. And Earth is just a school house, not the school, but one school out of many schools. If one school, has that many studants coming and going on a daily basis, can you even begin to imagin how many spirits there are out there, who are NOT in school, not to mention how many other school there must be besides the Earth?
Here's on more tidbit to chew on: Did you ever notice how Angels, Faeries, and Aliens all look vaugly Human? If they were beings of a different race, you'd think they would look . . well . . . a lot less Human. There is only one possible answer as to why or how these non-Humans could look so very Human, and that is, that they ARE Human. We are them, they were us, we will become them, they are our future. What all of this tells us is that, Humans, Angels, Fey, and Extraterrstrials are all in fact once big constantly evolving race and that we look out for each other. Once we understand this, we also understand that we have within us the power to do ANYTHING, think about it: ANYTHING. All we have to do is learn how to unlock that power so that we can advance to the next level of our existance. And that is where our guardians come in. They are our teachers. They have already been on the path that we are now on. They have already done the things we are now doing. They have already advanced to the point that they are at. They have overcome the need for a physical body. They have reached the point of enlightenment and saintly transfiguation. And now, they have come back as teachers. They are here, to teach us how to become as they are. Remember that 30 Day Ritual I was talking about earlier? Yeah, that's the first step to progressing past our Earthly schooling and advancing to becoming full Spirit Beings without the need for a physical body.
