Taking Your Hand: A Spirit Guide’s Guide

Just as people have guides, mentors, and teachers in everyday life, everyone is blessed with ephemeral guides and guardians who can offer help from the spiritual realm. There are many different types of spirit guides that could help you, from animal spirits to ancestral guardians, and each type of guide has their own energy and approach to helping you become the best possible version of yourself.

Here are a few different types of spirit guides that you may encounter in life. Remember – it’s quite common to have more than one leader at a time. You can interact with them equally, or they can (sort of) take turns, with one stepping back so another can help you through a particular section of your journey. They are all still there; They may not be your primary guide right now.

animal guide

Animal guides are exactly what they sound like. They can be the spirit or energy of a specific animal that has been part of your life, or they can resemble an animal totem. This type of guide is usually more of a companion than a teacher or guardian, although they can certainly step into these roles if the need arises.

ancestral leader

These spirit guides are usually deceased people who have some kind of connection to you. They can be deceased loved ones who were close to you, or they can be people further down your family tree. They often act as guardian angels. Ancestral Guides can help heal generational wounds so they don’t affect future generations of your family.

Ascended Masters

These spirit guides once lived on earth but have since moved on to a higher vibration and spiritual level. These guides usually work with select soul groups. Some Ascended Masters are Kuan Yin, Jesus, Buddha, St. Germain and Nobu. Her main focus is to help all of humanity.

patrons or matrons

In some traditions, people may have guardian spirits or guardians. These spirit guides are usually with a person throughout life, although they may never reveal themselves. Their energy can mirror your own, or it can be just the opposite so you can learn from them what you’re missing.


These are spirit guides who come into your life for a short time to help you with a challenge, a lesson, or some other aspect of life that you need assistance with. If you work with a mentor, most other guides will step back to allow this relationship to grow and fulfill its purpose.

Devas and Pathfinder Guides

If you are at a crossroads in life and need help choosing your path, you may find that these spirit guides can step in and help you find clarity. They are here to help you achieve your soul’s purpose, to rise above the physical world, and to make good decisions. You can usually connect with Devas and Pathfinder guides through meditation.

Gatekeeper Guide

These spirit guides are usually important to people who are learning about or trying to enhance their psychic abilities, especially those that are mediumistic in nature (i.e., related to connecting with or speaking to the dead). Gatekeepers help keep unwanted energies and spirits out, while also providing guidance on how to best utilize one’s psychic abilities. They usually appear when a person’s psychic gifts are first awakening so that they can teach that person how to use discernment and protective spiritual techniques.

Enjoy the company of your spirit guides

These are just a few of the many spirit guides you may encounter throughout your lifetime. There are also joy-bringing guides, messengers, healers, protectors, and energy/alchemical guides, among others. Most people can have between six and twelve guides watching over them at any one time. However, don’t worry about offending one by working with another. Guides and Divine Intelligence do not have the same petty feelings as most people. You can see the big picture and know that sometimes people need to go elsewhere for specific help.

By connecting with your spirit guides, either through meditation or consultation with a psychic, you can receive help in your spiritual development, learn more about which guides are connected to you, and hear the advice they have to offer.
