I’ve always been an “angel person.”
When I was growing up, visits by angels and spirits were considered a natural part of life, so it was not particularly unusual when, as a young adult, I delved into a deeper relationship with my guardian angel. I called on her for help with just about everything. And I still do today.
It amazes me how many of us have forgotten that we have access to this great gift.
Or we never knew in the first place that we have untapped assistance nearby. We all face challenges every day that could benefit from a little supernatural assistance, and the help we need is standing right behind us. Yes, they are right here.
Guardian angels are ever-present gifts from God sent to assist us in life’s challenges. I know it’s a little hard to believe, but stay with me for a minute. It’s totally worth it to learn a little more about your angel and to understand how you can foster a beautiful relationship.
No matter who you are, or what your belief system is, each of us has a guardian angel who stays with us for our entire lifetime. This angel is overflowing with unconditional love for us. We can ask them for help with absolutely anything, and they will do their best to steer us in the right direction — always whispering, always guiding.
It takes a moment of quiet focus, but connecting with an angel is as easy as talking to a dear friend — and life changes completely when we make friends with our angels. We don’t have to endure the difficulties of this day alone. We only need to call on our friends in high places.
Here are a few tips for connecting with your angel:
1. Ask often.
Your guardian angel is here for the sole purpose of assisting you, but he or she will never interfere with your free will. Angels act on your behalf only when called upon. So, when you want their assistance, you need to ask for help.
You can talk with your guardian angel in an uncensored way—as you would talk to your best friend—about anything and everything, silently or out loud. You can request assistance in all aspects of the day. Angels are helpful in the smallest, most mundane decisions, and in the most impossible, seemingly hopeless challenges. Once a request is made, help is on the way.
2. Pay attention.
After you ask for assistance, pay attention to the guidance you will receive in the form of signs, feelings or an intuitive sense of what to do next. Answers can also be received through a message from a friend or stranger, through something in the natural world like a feather or a rainbow, or even in the lyrics of a song. Signs can be found in billboards and in pages of a book. Be open-minded to your angel’s unique way of capturing your attention.
3. Act on the guidance you receive.
When you receive a sign, something in your spirit will be activated and you will know what it means and what to do. You might have an “aha” moment, and you will know which road to take based on this new understanding. Trust your intuition and act on the guidance you receive. The more you act on guidance given, the more you will notice guidance given.
4. Ask on behalf of others.
Another way angels can assist you is with your relationships. You don’t directly communicate with someone else’s angel, but you can ask your angel to enlist their angel’s help in healing, in sorting out a problem between you, in helping them with their lives or their health today. You can ask them to work on impossible situations from higher realms. I have seen misunderstandings and family fallouts melt away after diligent requests for angelic intercession. When it feels like all is lost, there’s always hope because angels are near.
5. Give thanks.
It helps to give thanks before you even get an answer—as if it has already come to pass. Gratitude in advance can be offered right along with asking for help. For example, you could say or think, “Thank you for guiding me through the details of this meeting,” before the meeting has occurred, or “Thank you for solving this problem with me,” before the problem has been resolved.
Then after the help has been received or the support given, thank your angel for the assistance.
6. Leave room for something better.
You may have asked for a particular outcome, but it’s possible that the resolution of your request could come in a way that you had not thought of. Leaving room for a variety of results opens you to answers beyond your wildest dreams and expectations. You could say or think, “May this or something greater happen for the highest good of all,” or “I ask for the best possible outcome for all concerned.”
These simple tips can lead to beautiful changes in your life. As you go about your day today, know that the time is always right to renew your relationship with your guardian angel. You will be overjoyed that you did. And your angel will be too.
