I have believed in angels ever since I was a little girl. I remember wanting to be an angel in the nativity play at primary school but for some reason, I was made to wear a tea towel on my head and sing in the choir. I was not happy. I remember seeing the other girls dressed up as angels in their pretty costumes and wings and I remember feeling most put out.
There were angels everywhere when I was little and on Sundays at church I remember not wanting to move up close to the next person in case my angel got squashed.
You see them as statues in Churches and Cathedrals and it always surprises me that they don’t get mentioned much during religious ceremonies. It was the one bit of the church experience that I could really connect with growing up because I could feel them all around.
Angels are God’s messengers at work in the world today and they are our connection to the higher realms and they come in many forms.
An earth angel is someone who selflessly assists others or it could be a helpful animal or stranger.
A Guardian angel is a specific type of spirit guide that is assigned to protect and guide us. They accompany us through birth and are with us in every thought, word and event we experience in life. They are pure love and bring to us only what will help us, guide us, protect us and encourage us to aspire to the very best qualities of our soul.
An Archangel has special duties and we can call upon them whenever we need them. There are many Archangels but the most well known are:
Archangel Michael who is the leader of all the Archangels and he is in charge of protection, courage, strength, truth and integrity. Archangel Michael protects us physically, emotionally and psychically. He also oversees the light worker’s life purpose.
Archangel Gabriel performs acts of kindness and brings important messages. Archangel Gabriel can bring messages to you just as she did to Elizabeth and Mary about the birth of their sons, John the Baptist and Jesus. If you are considering starting a family or adopting a child, ask Gabriel for help and support.
Archangel Raphael is a powerful healer and assists with all forms of healing in humans and animals. Raphael also helps with inward spiritual journeys, assisting in the search for truth and guidance.
You are surrounded by angels 24/7 and everyone has the ability to connect with them. You don’t need to be religious, gifted or psychic and you don’t need to be in a place of worship, wear purple clothes or own any special jewellery. The secret is to go within. Turn off your mobile phone, TV, computer and find somewhere quiet. It could be your garden, kitchen, car or any place you won’t get disturbed. Listen to the peace and feel the stillness. Close your eyes for a moment, breathe deeply, and feel their presence. If you still can’t sense the angels, keep practising. They want to make their presence known to you because they want to be involved in your life. Become aware of being in that moment without the mind taking you off in different directions.
You can ask the angels for help or just tell them your worries. Acknowledging their presence is the first step but you may not experience them straight away. They may come in as a thought, a gentle touch or they may come as a sensation or an inner knowing.
You can invite them into your dreams by writing them a letter and placing it under your pillow.
Look out for signs around you like white feathers. These are the angels calling cards and if you find one in an unusual place that is a sign. They are usually white and very fluffy.
Also, become aware the next time you turn on your radio. What are the first words you hear? Is that a message for you? What song is playing?
Butterflies signify transformation and I always feel the angels are near whenever I see one. I also love cloud gazing and I quite often see feather or heart shaped clouds.
Have you ever heard your name being called and thought you imagined it?
Have you ever seen a beam of light that you cannot explain? Lights in the corner of your eye and orbs on photographs are also said to be angelic energy. These are all signs that the angels are close by.
If you would like to connect to the angels but are finding it difficult there are lots of books to help you. Check out the link to Hay House Mind, Body & Spirit books and DVDs here.
