The angels are here to ensure that our lives run smoothly. They protect, guide, encourage and heal us, the ultimate cheerleaders. Though sometimes we ask for too much, putting ourselves in precarious situations without making full use of their angelic power.
We can change that by following these steps:
1) Get to know your Angels
It seems like everyone wants to meet their angel, find out his or her name. And why wouldn’t we be excited to make their acquaintance? Not only do they have lovely ethereal energy, but they also do so much for us! By getting to know their energy, we also make it easier for their guidance to cut through the noise of our daily lives. Invite your angel “over” for a friendly chat, grab yourself a cup of tea and find a place where you will not be disturbed. Follow this meditation to ground yourself, clear the air and sense your angel's beautiful energy:
Do this every day, if only for a few minutes. Soon you will recognize your angel’s energy when you are out and about. They may interrupt with a friendly message or a timely warning.
2) Practice Mindfulness
Guardian Angels are the kings of multi-tasking. Their most vital role, however, is to keep us safe. This is also where they need our help. The angels do everything in their power to intervene when we find ourselves in a pickle. Unfortunately, many of us are wrapped up in a bubble of thoughts, making it hard for them to get through. We may be standing on the corner of 3rd and 59th street, but our mind is miles away. Thank God for that Earth Angel that pulls us out of the way when an SUV comes barrelling around the corner. Our angels will find this safekeeping role much easier if we are aware of our surroundings. Intuitive messages will also filter through, pointing out opportunities as much as risks.
3) Look after Yourself
You know the drill: get some sleep, eat well, exercise, and have fun too! Join a dance class, or go to a game with friends. Coping with the everyday pressures of life can be relatively painless if we are in good mental shape. We will also be better equipped to notice angelic guidance.
4) Listen to your Intuition
Guardian Angels are assigned to us for life, they know exactly who we are. Just like our spirit guides, they coach and encourage us (not quite from the sidelines), but we do have to take action when opportunity knocks. Your intuition will kick in when the moment comes, so listen and go for the gold. It can be easy to miss the signs if we are feeling stressed, and scheduling intuitive breaks during the week will give us the space to receive their guidance. At the very least, we can ask for a thumbs up to let us know that we are on the right path. Teaming up with the angels makes for an unstoppable force, as opposed to an angelic rescue mission.
Oracle Cards can also jumpstart that guidance if meditation is a challenge. Join a class to make friends who can complement your intuition with messages of their own. Nothing beats having a team of Earth Angels on your side!
5) Let Go and Let God
How many of us ask the angels for help and keep on worrying about the problem? Focusing on the issue keeps it in our corner, making it hard for the angels to do their job. We may even miss the solution when it finally appears. Let the angels run with the ball and wait for a sign on how to proceed. Ground yourself and keep your attention on the task at hand. The answer to your prayers may be a miraculous resolution, or possibly an exit route that you hadn’t thought of.
Still nervous? We can also ask our Guardian Angels for a sign, letting us know the request has been heard. It might be a horn honking, a feather or even a bird at the window.
6) Upgrade Your Self-Talk
Our angels lend their wings to give us courage when we fall down. The hardest knocks are often in our own minds: disappointment, self-doubt and fear. Most of us live with an internal dialogue. It’s time we became aware of our thoughts, and redirect them when they take a wrong turn. Some of us may be Book Smart, others Heart Smart or People Smart. Turn your attention to your strengths; you are a beautiful and capable soul. Do not let your self-doubt tell you otherwise.
7) Be an Earth Angel
Everything we have discussed so far makes our own life easier. The seventh is how we pay it forward, by volunteering our services as an Earth Angel. Now that we are familiar with the angels, passing on intuitive messages should be a piece of cake. You may sense that a friend is tired. Ask them if they have a lot on their plate. If so, have they considered taking time off or rethinking their priorities? By phrasing the message as a question, we can make it less direct and more effective.
The Archangels also have special missions on Earth; we can help by volunteering for a related charity. The angels act through us, inspiring change but it’s up to us to make it happen. Let’s choose a cause that we are naturally passionate about. Here is a brief overview of the main Archangels:
By helping the angels we are ultimately helping ourselves. Follow these steps to strengthen the bond with your Guardian Angel, making your life and your angel’s job that much easier.
