I can’t begin to count how many times people diving into the world of magickal entities end up asking me, what’s the difference between spirit guides and demons?
This question is an excellent one because when it comes to magickal energetic entities, things can get hard to define quickly and, especially when demons are involved, it’s especially important to acknowledge the kind of entity around you, to prevent any danger.
So, today I want to talk about spirit guides, demons, and how to work with them.

What are spirit guides?
Firstly, let’s start by saying that spirit guides are beings of light, whose task is to assist us in our life path. These entities have had many incarnations on Earth and, having reached an extremely high level of spiritual awareness myself, they then became guides for my soul in this physical body.
Their main role is to help us in our spiritual journey, and they are at our disposal every time we ask for their assistance.
They are real mentors, and we can consider them amongst our best friends or confidants. They have a very loving, compassionate energy and support us in all our decisions, but they can only help us if we ask for it.
Furthermore, these extraordinary beings are without judgment and never impose on us a decision or a way of seeing reality, so we are free to accept or disregard their advice without fear of being punished or scolded.
In reality, spirit guides never tire of helping us, even if we repeat the same mistake several times in a row. Plus, spirit guides can be someone who was very close to us like a relative, a friend, or someone who passed away but still wants to be part of our lives, showing us the right path and support when needed.
Signs a spirit guide is next to you
I really think that you know when a presence next to you is a good one. You might feel supported, not alone and a caring feeling around you. Another sign is if you are dreaming constantly of someone who might have passed away but that was very close to your heart, especially if you dream it while experiencing a very hard challenging time and this dream gives you guidance or special support, it might be a sign a spirit guide wants to connect with you.
What is the difference between the spirit guide and the guardian angel?
Some people think a spirit guide and a guardian angel are the same, but they are not. Spirit guides are usually members of someone’s family, ancestors, or deceased friends. Tradition has it that the spirit guides have the same personality they had when they were alive. Guardian angels, on the other hand, are entities never incarnated on earth, to whom we are entrusted by divine providence.
What are demons?
Demons, like any other spiritual being, do not necessarily represent “evil”. In religious culture and in Greek philosophy, the demon (from the Greek dáimōn, meaning divine being) is a being who stands halfway between what is Divine and what is human, with the function of being an intermediate between these two dimensions.
Over the centuries, the demon figure has increasingly taken on a totally negative connotation.
In fact, the Bible states that they are the fallen angels cast out of Heaven and that they serve Lucifer, the first rebel angel. However, there are spiritual entities that cannot be exactly identified as demons but which in popular culture have often been referred to as evil ghosts. Take for example poltergeists.
Signs a demon is around you
A demon, being a malevolent entity has an interest in reaching out to you and making you aware of its presence. One of the first signs a demon is around you is sensing a weird feeling of oppression, depression, sadness and drained energy all the time, especially if you sense it in a specific place like in a particular room or simply in your home, and, when you go out, that feeling is gone.
If you feel it, it may mean that a demon is attached to your home. If things keep happening no matter where you are, the demon might be attached to your persona. Another sign of a demon around you can be nightmares and dreams leaving you with a sense of emptiness and anguish.
In cases where demons are around you, you may find bruises or marks on your body and you can hear noises coming from the walls, like scratching or things moving around for no reason. Sleep paralysis, sickness, and fear are other signs to keep an eye out for that demons may be around.
Before we continue
Practicing magic takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended to do it alone in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” articles for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult an experienced spell caster such as myself and allow me to do the work for you.
This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and I’m also always here to answer questions about your casting and provide follow-up at no additional charge.
Protection Spell Casting
Protection Spell Casting creates a protective shield around you. It protects you from evil and negative energy, for a period between 3 to 6 months. It’s an instant spell, you don’t need to wait days for it to become active.
I have helped hundreds of clients over the years, and I’d love to work with you as well.
How to work with these entities?
Working with spirit guides
If you want to connect with a spirit guide you just need to listen to them. Follow your instinct because they are supporting you, follow the tips they give you in dreams, or simply connect with them with meditation or prayer (if you are a religious person). Working with a spirit guide is easy because they are there to support you by letting you know they have your back and that you are on the right path of your life.
If some obstacle is around you, spirit guides will give you hints on how to overcome it.
Working with demons
If you are into black arts and you want to connect with demons, you can choose to work with them using a vessel like an Ouija board to get to know that demon and exploring its powers. Remember that you must be extremely cautious when dealing with demons because it can lead to possession or hauntings.
I think a demon is haunting me. What can I do?
You should cleanse your space on a regular basis, order a protection spell casting, pray if you are a religious person, and try to keep positive energy all the time to raise the positive vibrations and fight any negative vibes created by the demonic entity.
