7 Steps to Connect with Your Angel Guides

Angels are truly all-encompassing. According to the Pew Research Center, 72 percent of Americans believe in angels. Because angels are central to the majority of the world’s major religions, this is a much higher percentage than the percentage of Americans who believe in any world religion. They can be found in Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Mormonism, and a variety of other religious traditions.

“Make friends with angels,” said St. Augustine, an authority on angels. He advised us to form personal relationships with angels and to allow those relationships to deepen, just as we would with any important, intimate relationship. 

One of our most powerful spiritual practices is to ask an angel for assistance. We can request immediate assistance from the angels at any time and in any location. Here are a few techniques that will assist you:

1) Request assistance – Angels are available to us 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The more open we are, the more assistance they can provide. When you reduce your receptivity, you limit the angels’ ability to assist you. Create your own invocations, or prayers, that specifically request the assistance you require. Recognize that when you summon an angel, you actually open yourself up to greater receptivity to their assistance.

When requesting assistance, it is critical to recognize that you are fully deserving of angelic assistance. Angels work with everyone, regardless of their personal histories or religious beliefs. Angels are infinite and omnipresent; your request has no effect on their ability to help the rest of us at the same time. They exist outside of time and space and respond to everyone with complete unconditional love.

2) Call on the angels for assistance as you connect with your inner divine child. Your inner divine child is whole, innocent, and true, and he or she recognizes angels as trustworthy Creator gifts. This will aid in the development of openness, receptivity, excitement, eagerness, and wonder as you prepare to receive the gift that your angels have prepared for you. 

3) When you ask the angels for help, give them everything: every issue, problem, worry, and fear, as well as every good intention and positive outcome you envision as a result of your request. Let go of any expectations about how your request will be handled.

4) Show your appreciation and gratitude. Discover and express genuine appreciation and gratitude for things as they are. If you are having difficulty with this, ask the angels to assist you in finding the love that is present in whatever difficulty you are experiencing. Allow yourself to be patient and let go of any expectations about how this love will be revealed to you. 

5) Recognize that it has been completed. Every request is met, and assistance is always provided. If you are concerned that your request will go unanswered, ask for clarification. You can be confident that you will see the love in every answered prayer. The angels know you completely and love you unconditionally, and nothing that will benefit you is ever withheld from you.

6) React quickly to the advice you receive. Accept the opportunity and act on it right away. Angelic assistance is infinite and limitless; you will never run out of it. You cannot ask for “too much,” and the angels are overjoyed to give you unlimited amounts. The sooner you act, the sooner you will receive assistance!

7) Appreciate yourself exactly as you are in the present moment. Leave any negative feelings or critical judgments about yourself, your life, or others in the hands of the angels for healing. Let go of everything that isn’t love for yourself and everything around you, even if it’s just for a few moments. The angels can do much more for you in this moment of surrender than you can on your own. Thank you for deepening your relationship with yourself and the angels.

This article should have given you some helpful steps for connecting more deeply with your Angels for help and assistance. Remember that Angels will be by your side every step of the way today. Angels are always present and eager to assist us.

Divine Companions: Angels and Spirit Guides

Even when you feel completely alone, there are divine companions who are always by your side. They chose to accompany you throughout your lifetime before your incarnation, from the moment you took your first breath to the moment you died. Spirit guides are highly evolved beings who have completed the physical plane’s cycle of birth and death and are now serving as teachers and guides to further raise their vibrations. They are as “real” as you are; they just vibrate at a different frequency and exist on a different plane of existence.

They work with you to guide you through your dreams and intuition. That soft voice you hear is frequently the voice of your teachers and guides. They may also communicate with you through signs and symbols. When I’m at a crossroads in my life or dealing with a personal or emotional challenge, I notice feathers everywhere. In addition, I see feather tattoos, hawks, and hear specific songs. It serves as a reminder to me to be still and listen to the guidance of my personal guides. The feathers represent the energy of my guides, one of whom is a powerful Shaman and the others are angelic beings.

Some people have one guide, while others have a plethora; much of this is determined by your life’s path and purpose. A teacher/professor, for example, may have several guides, one to guide them through the academic nature of their profession and others to assist them with the high emotional demands of such an important task. Much of who your guides are reflects your own personal life journey.

Spirit guides are almost never loved ones who have died. Although our loved ones remain with us in spirit and can be contacted, they do not perform the same function as a “spirit guide.” Some people have spirit guides in the form of archangels and angels who are always with them. The presence of angels, however, does not always imply that they are your spirit guides. Angels can be summoned in times of need to help you for a limited time. If you have an archangel or angel as a guide, your life mission is likely to be complicated.

Your spirit guide is always with you, whether you recognize them or not. You can’t summon them or send them away; they’re a part of you and your journey. You can, however, choose to learn about who they are and what role they play in your life. You can be more proactive in your interactions with your spirit guides. Simply inquire as to who your guides are. Put yourself in a quiet, meditative space and ask them to reveal themselves to you. Don’t be disheartened if you can’t figure it out right away. Spiritual beings frequently communicate through signs and symbols. You must trust your own wisdom once you have asked.

Pay attention to the images that come to mind. Stay with a man in a suit if you see him; he could be a philosopher or scientist. You might see a Native American, a Buddhist monk, or nothing at all. Maintain an open mind and intuition. Keep an eye out for things that keep coming up after you’ve asked them to reveal their identity. If you are having difficulty determining who they are, you can seek the assistance of a professional psychic/intuitive.

Working with your spirit guides can be a powerful tool for your personal and spiritual development. Unlike physical beings, their wisdom and advice are not influenced by the “world.” They exist on a higher vibrational plane, and the mundane details of your situation are irrelevant to them. For example, if you seek relationship guidance from your spirit guide, they will lead you to focus on what you are learning, what you need to learn, what you are teaching your partner, and what the true meaning of your relationship is.

It won’t matter if they leave the toilet seat up or are terrible at budgeting the household finances. The information you will be given will be actions that YOU can take to gain a better understanding. You can also request help from your spirit guides with physical healing. Before you go to bed, ask for healing to come to you while you sleep. 

You will never be alone. Never. Have faith in knowing and comprehending that there is a great deal of magic and mystery in this life. Allow the “world” to vanish for a brief moment. Raise your vibration and allow spirit’s beautiful gifts to wash over you. There is so much more to life than what we see. If you open your spiritual eyes and hearts, you will find a world of wisdom, beauty, and peace that you were unaware existed. You can, of course, choose not to believe. It is always your decision. But, really, why not? Why not ascend to a higher plane of existence? Why not have faith in magic? 

You don’t have to tell anyone, but you can embrace the wonders of spirit in your own heart. It will envelop you in a light of love and comprehension, mysteriously transforming you into a more connected and loving being.
