1. Every living thing has a unique spirit – plants, animals, humans etc. Recognizing your spirit is an important step to take before you can begin to recognize the presence of your spirit guides and angels. It will help you to find out who you are and help you to see others in a different light. It will also help you to easily see energy that surrounds us all. Your spirit is what makes you unique and what makes you, you. It is the essence of you and your authentic self - your soul and the life that is you.
