Angels as Guides
“Angels are all around us, all the time, in the very air we breathe.” – Eileen Elias Freeman
Angels are truly universal. The Pew Foundation reported that 72% of Americans
believe in angels. This is a much higher percentage than Americans who believe
in any world religion because angels are fundamental to most of the world’s
major religions. We find them in Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism,
Judaism, Mormonism, and many other spiritual traditions.
What are Angels?
An angel is a messenger. They are not only the bringers of messages; sometimes,
their presence is the actual message. They are holy beings documented and discussed
in multiple religions as being in service to a higher power, the holy spirit,
and the general greater good. Some believe angels are the god sent, while others
say they come from a divine mother. They work with our souls and the collective
consciousness to help us raise our awareness and energy in reminding us of the truth
and interconnectedness of all things. Angels can look like humans and may be unaware
that they are angels. In multiple scriptures around the world, angels oversee
every living thing.
Guardian angels are assigned to humans to oversee their lives across a lifespan or
during a particular juncture or event. They can protect a person from danger or
manage challenging times. They can also bring one into more conscious awareness of
their actions and words and help them follow a better path, more in alignment with
their truth as a spirit. Angels are often said to be present during a near-death experience
and at the moment of a person’s passing.
Connect With Your Angel Guides
St. Augustine, an authority on Angels, said, “Make friends with angels.” He
recommended that we make personal relationships with angels and that we let
our relationships with them deepen, much as we would with any important,
Asking an angel for help is one of our most powerful spiritual practices. We can
ask the angels for immediate assistance at any time and place. Here are some
techniques that will help you:
1) Ask for help – Angels offer us service 24/7. The more receptive we are, the more
help they can give us. Realize that when you call upon an angel, what happens is
that you open yourself into greater receptivity to their assistance.
If you diminish your receptivity, you limit the angels’ ability to help you.
Create your invocations, or prayers, that specifically call for the
help you need.
When asking for help, it’s important to realize yourself as fully worthy of divine
assistance. Angels work with everyone regardless of personal histories and
beliefs. Angels are infinite and omnipresent; your request does not diminish them
in any way, nor does it affect their ability to help the rest of us simultaneously.
They exist beyond our experience of time and space and respond to everyone
with complete unconditional love.
2) Connect with your inner divine child as you call upon the angels and ask for
help. Your inner divine child is whole, innocent, and accurate and recognizes angels
as trustworthy gifts of a benevolent creator. This will help create openness, receptivity,
excitement, eagerness, and wonder as you prepare to receive the gift your angels
have ready for you.
3) Hand everything over to the angels when you ask for their help: every issue,
problem, worry, and fear, as well as every good intention and positive outcome
you imagine as the result of your request. Release all expectations of how your
request will be answered.
4) Express Appreciation and Gratitude. Find and express genuine appreciation
and gratitude for things exactly as they are. If you are struggling with this, ask the
angels to help you to find the love that is present in whatever difficulty you are
facing. Have patience and let go of any expectation of how this love may
be revealed to you.
5) Know that it is done. Every request is answered, and help is always given. If
you fear that your request will not be answered, then also ask for help in
understanding. Trust that you will see the love in every answered prayer. You are
known completely and loved unconditionally by the angels, and nothing that will
serve you is ever withheld from you.
6) Act quickly on the guidance you receive. The faster you act, the quicker you receive
more assistance! Accept the opportunity and act upon it immediately. Angelic help is
infinite and unlimited; you can not use it up or run out of it. You cannot ask for
“too much,” and the angels are joyously happy to give you without limit.
7) Celebrate yourself exactly as you are in the moment. Leave any critical
judgments or negative feelings about yourself, your life, or others in the hands of
the angels for healing. Even if it is just for a few moments, let go of everything
that is not of love for yourself and everything around you. In this moment of
surrender, much more can be done for you by the angels than you can
accomplish on your own. Thank yourself and the angels for deepening the
relationship between you.
A Psychic Perspective
Angels can be seen as spirit guides that offer insight, healing, and help in times of need. Angels may appear in a more classic likeness or something else. They can be in human form or earth angels. They may be called upon at will and used in healing practices. They can facilitate your manifestations or mock-ups and hold space for you during challenging times.
During a clairvoyant reading, an angel may be called upon to hold space or provide insight into the readee. As with any guide or being without a body, it is essential to use your discernment to determine if they are beneficial. When developing clairvoyance, relying on guides rather than looking from the perspective of your awareness is not recommended, as it takes you out of your power and makes you dependent on something outside of yourself. As with any practice, look at it yourself, and use your discernment.
Hopefully, this article gave you some helpful steps to connect more deeply with your Angels for help and assistance. Remember, Angels will be at your side with every step you take today. Angels are always with us and are eager to help.
