I have been teaching about angels for a very long time now. I have dealt with my personal angel since I was fourteen years old when he started talking to me. Of course, way back when, you just didn’t go around telling people that you have an angel talking to you and even though I was a young teen, I got it. You keep this information to yourself.
In metaphysics it is believed that we are all born with three personal guardian angels and three spirits guides that are here to help each one of us. But the “law of non-interference” states that they cannot interfere with our free will and choices unless we specifically ask for assistance. I tell my students it is like having a butler, maid, cook and chauffeur on staff and they sit at the kitchen table having coffee waiting for you to tell them what to do. They are there, but not doing their jobs!
Angels wait to assist us and I think they must have an extreme amount of patience not to interfere when they know we are making a mistake or not taking an important opportunity for our best interest – but that’s what they do.
So, it is important to deal with them every day. I personally ask to be brought opportunities and people into my life who would be in my best interest, and so far it has worked out well. Yes, I’ve made mistakes along the way because I didn’t think the opportunities were right for me and I’ve been disappointed some time later to see that “they” were right and that my judgment was colored by emotional responses of what I “thought” I wanted.
The first thought that comes to your mind about anything (after asking assistance from them) is always the right thing to do. You have free will so you can do whatever you feel is appropriate for you; however, give the answer that comes to your mind first a second thought and reflect upon it. What would be the ramifications of taking that path? Would it be in your best interest? Would it be a risk worth taking? Think of these things before making a decision.
You may also ask the name of your angel if you go into meditation — or you can get ready for bed and once your head is on the pillow, close your eyes and ask (out loud or silently) that you would like to know the name(s) of your personal angels. The names will come into your mind. Don’t be discouraged if it takes several tries – sometimes, we just don’t believe the names that come into our minds and we dismiss them. Hear them and know that they are your angels’ names.
Ask for assistance in being safe while driving/traveling to your destination. Ask that the police don’t see your speeding by; ask that your family and you are healthy and safe and that you will always make the best decisions for all involved. Your angels can help you with whatever you can imagine.
You have all the power of the universe on your side, it would be sad if you didn’t use it.
It is so wonderful to know that angels surround us and are always here for us no matter what the problem or concern. Many pray to angels for guidance, or for such things as good opportunities, improving health, meeting a romantic partner, protecting their children, etc. There are many reasons to pray to angels.
But what do angels do for us?
They are here to guide us along life’s bumpy roads and to assist us when we feel as if we need an additional helping hand. Angels are really not here just to tell us what we should do with our lives because after all, we were blessed (or cursed, depending upon your point of view) with free will.
They can help us become aware of otherwise inconspicuous opportunities or give us deep insight into an issue that had been troubling us. Angels help with giving you (what I like to call) “super intuition” so you know in an instant if something seems right or if things seem just a little too good to be true.
Is it true that there is an angel for every building and plane?
I have heard this many times and it seems as if it should be true, but I have no proof. I guess one would have to go on faith. I personally asked if this was true, what happens to all of those in plane crashes or who died in the Twin Towers and my answer from Angel experts were that the angels were there to help the souls cross over easily. Transition was seamless. That does seem to be a good use of their time.
Is it true that Nature Spirits report directly to the Angels?
In the hierarchy of Angels, Nature Spirits, such as fairies, pixies, gnomes, trolls, etc., do report directly to the angels. They work with Mother Nature to make the flowers bloom in the spring and carry the cool spring currents which allow seeds to glide and land in various places; they keep the grasses green and keep the flowers vibrant in the summer as well as try to keep the water levels high enough to keep the flora from wilting! Nature Spirits help the leaves turn brilliant colors in the fall and aid the tree in pulling back its chlorophyll into the tree trunks and thereby getting them ready for a long winter’s hibernation. In the winter, the Nature Spirits guide the snow, wind, freezing temperatures and regulate ice storms, icicles, and the melting of this frozen form of water.
Why can’t I see Nature Spirits?
Some people can see them and it’s a delightful sight to see them aiding our planet. I always say why can some people see Angels and others not? It’s the same truth for the Nature Spirits. Be open to them and ask them to show themselves. They are very shy but if they know you are Nature Spirit friendly, they may surprise you and let you get a glimpse of them one day while you are in the yard or garden.
Can a soul of a loved one who has passed become an angel?
No. Angels are another life stream and cannot be your Mother, Father, Aunt, Uncle or any other relative. They can; however, become a spirit guide until it is their time to reincarnate to another earthly body.
Is it wrong to ask that my loved one stay with me when they have passed?
If you are doing it out of love, how can it be wrong? Most spirits stay earthbound because of the emotional bond between them and a family member. They feel as if they have to help their family who was left behind and who is emotionally spent. The best thing is to accept the death as soon as you feel it is appropriate for you (it can be up to a year or more) and wish your loved one well on their journey through the 12 planes of Heaven. You must tell them that you are now able to move on without them and that they must do the same. They must move forward.
Can Mediums give me messages from my Angels?
Many can and many are charlatans. Beware! Just be sure that it is a reputable channel or medium that you have contacted because they can say anything and how would you know that it is the truth? If you really need to know what your angel is trying to tell you – meditate, pray, or just be still and listen! You can always tell if you are hearing Heavenly prayers or wishes. If it feels uncomfortable or wrong to you, then you may have been tapping into something else which may be considered negative. Angels never lead you astray or hurt you (or anyone), so if you feel you are getting messages that may be considered “wrong”, then you can be assured you are not getting heavenly or Angelic advice or direction. However, most people can sense their angels and know what to do after asking for guidance, so try it.
Is there anything else I should know about Angels?
I think trusting their judgment is important and you will get this as you become more involved with them and you see the results of their input. Angels are always willing to listen to you and are waiting to help you in any way they can. You are a Light Being and they want to assist you get “the experiment” here on Earth so that your soul can be a more educated one when it progresses to the next level.
What if they don’t answer my prayers?
I hear this a lot from my students. Not all prayers can be answered and some of them can’t be answered for your own good. Maybe it is not the right time for your wishes to be brought into your life – maybe you are meant for another experience or another path. Just keep praying and keep the faith. Whatever you need will be there for you at the appropriate time.
