Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the difference between angels and spiritual guides?
- Do I need to "channel" my angels to get answers for myself?
- Is there such a thing as a "bad" angel?
Even though many people have been taught that there is a difference between angels or guardian angels and spirit guides, the opposite is true. The confusion comes in when you have been told that someone you have known who has since passed on is one of your angels or spirit guides.
In reality, if you come from a more religious background, you will call your spiritual team of helpers "angels." If you have studied metaphysics or Eastern philosophy, you may call them spirit guides, master souls or avatars, etc. They are one and the same, no matter what you call them. Your spiritual helpers are actually master souls that you chose to help you before you came in to your physical body. You also chose two other souls to be your "parents."
There is no greater or lesser in the universe. Everyone who is involved in the spiritual growth or evolvement on planet Earth has incarnated here at one time or another. Otherwise, your "angels" would not be able to help you. They have already mastered every concept or experience you are working through in your life so they can "guide" you and help you "graduate," just like them.
In addition, they have spiritual helpers that help them to help you. These are souls who have evolved past helping us directly and are now backing your spiritual guidance to guide you as well. Some people call these higher souls "Archangels" and have given them symbolic names, such as "Michael" or "Gabriel." These higher master souls can also work in teams and help with healing large groups of people on planet Earth -- and are always present in man-made or natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, etc. to assist in helping souls make their transition from their physical body to the spiritual energy around planet Earth.
Do I need to "channel" my angels to get answers for myself?
You do not need to channel your angels or spiritual helpers to get answers. Inner Expansion has shown thousands of people, just like you, how to connect immediately within 5 seconds, and get answers for yourself. You do not have to go to - or through - anyone else.
Anytime someone tells you that you have to go through them to get answers, it means their motives may not be clear, especially if they ask you for large sums of money to help you "connect with your angels" or "clear your chakras," etc. They may also want you to be devoted to them and keep coming back to get additional treatments - over and over again. Some of these people may be well-meaning, but ignorant of how spiritual energy really works.
It is easy to tap into the inspiration that your personal spiritual helpers give you everyday. As a matter of fact, you will get between 80 to 90 hunches, visions, ideas or feelings a day. Even though Inner Expansion is an educational service, we will never tell you that you have to come to us to get your answers. We are people, just like you, who have gone through the steps that it takes to learn about ourselves and to perfect our communication with our own guidance. We have the concern to make sure that you are "free" to search on your own and exercise your own free will. All we can do is provide "experience" - not answers. Our goal is to show you how to get your own answers.
With the simple and proven two-way communication technique that Inner Expansion shows you in the Inner Guidance Consultation Program (Intermediate Package), you will never have to go to another person to access the guidance that is available to you on a moment's notice.
Is there such a thing as a "bad" angel?
There is no such thing as a "bad" angel or a "demon", contrary to popular belief. There are, however, souls who have passed on in a state of confusion and if you find yourself getting depressed or angry, you may attract these thoughts and feelings from the universe.
Most people do not have a problem with this unless they allow themselves to "dwell" consistently on negativity. In special cases, some people end up in a mental institution because they do not know how to control their own energy and need additional help. This does not mean that they can't learn to be in charge of their own thoughts and feelings. Once they do, then they will lead normal lives, just like the rest of us.
If you want to bypass any confusion or negativity, Inner Expansion shows you how to do the Personal Energy Cleansing technique that you can use every day to buffer yourself from other people's thoughts and feelings. It only takes one minute to do it and is a part of the Personal Regrouping Program in the Inner Guidance Consultation Program (Intermediate Package).
In the Personal Energy Expansion Training Program (Advancement Package), there is also a technique to help you get out of depression in 5 seconds. It works!
