Are you dependant on them? What I mean by this is that if they are an emotional security blanket then you've probably made them up in your mind. Real guardian angels and such are here to help you to believe in yourself, not to make you completely dependant on them for your every thing. If you can't make a personal decision without your guides and they allow that kind of neediness, then they aren't real. If you require they're presence in order to create your art, play your music, or to write your great masterpiece, then chances are you don't have enough self-esteem and you created a third party in your mind to give credit to. That's not same as occasionally co-creating with them but being able to also work independently. If you are unable to do your spiritual works or offer your gifts to world without their assistance, then they are probably not real.
Finally, upon meeting with spirits and building a strong mentally healthy relationship with them where neither is a control freak bossing other around and both are free to come and go as they please. Then last thing to consider is impact that relationship has on you. Are you called to do some sort of spiritual work? Are you shown how to give some kind of a gift of love to world whether it's music, writing, speaking, art, cleaning up planet or whatever else? Most people who come into contact with divine find themselves with some sort of an undying need to spread love and joy around planet. Real angels, fairies, and spirit guides teach us how to give our greatest gifts to world. They empower us with self belief that we have always had whatever is needed to make a difference in world. If relationship isn't spiritual and inspirational, then it's doubtful that it's really spirit guides or angels that you're talking to.
It is universally understood that angels, fairies, spirit guides, or whatever other name your culture gives to those messengers of love and light, it is understood that they come from God. Again, it doesn't matter if you call it God, Mother Nature, Light, Force or whatever name you like. These little spirits are divine helpers from heavens come to cheer you on and to help you find a spiritually divine path. They are not owned by us and cannot be bossed around. They have no control over us and cannot boss us around without our consent. They can work amazing magic when co-creating with us, but they are here to show you your own magic and divinity within you. Once that's done, they tend to slip back into shadows to allow you to shine your own light on your little corner of world.
