Working with your angels in your everyday life can be helpful in a number of ways that you might not have considered. For example, did you know that your angels can lead you to wonderful new opportunities? Did you know that they can keep you away from dangerous situations? Or that they love to help you solve problems and overcome challenges?
Most of us don’t call on our angels nearly enough. Why is that? Most often it’s because we don’t remember to do it, and perhaps we even doubt that angels are willing to help us.
There is a common belief across many cultures that each person on earth is assigned one or more angels that work directly with them. Whether you believe you have your own personal angels or not, you can still create a daily practice of asking the angels for assistance and working more deliberately with them in your everyday life.
Here’s how to enter the realm of Angels:
First, it’s important to raise your awareness of your angels on a daily basis. Most of the time you are probably focused very keenly on the physical world, which is understandable since that’s where you are; but there is another realm beyond the physical where your angels reside. This spiritual realm is called by many names, including Heaven, the non-physical, and the spiritual plane.
To become more aware of this realm, you simply need to close your eyes and sit quietly for a few minutes a day. Do your best to quieten your mind and release tension from your body. Breathe deeply and get as centred as you can. Then start thinking about your angels. Think about how brilliant and beautiful they are. Think about how helpful they are, and try to feel the deep love and kindness they feel for you. Stay in this awareness for several minutes, perhaps as long as 10 or 15 minutes if you can. Do this once or twice a day, first thing when you wake up and again before you go to sleep.
During these sessions, your angels may reveal themselves to you through a soft touch, a quiet voice, or even a mental vision; but if you don’t experience any obvious sign of them right away, it’s okay. More direct communication with your angels may come later.
Next, be sure to start asking your angels for help. You may be used to struggling along on your own, but your angels are eager to jump in and help whenever you ask. Ask for help with problems you are having, or ask for insights and ideas on a new project. Ask for comfort when you feel frightened, and ask for guidance when you feel confused. Word your requests very simply, as if you were speaking to a trusted friend: “Angels, please help me find a way to solve this problem. Angels, please show me if there is anything I can do to make this situation better.”
After making a request, sit quietly and turn your attention to your angels again (just like you did during your morning and evening meditation sessions). Keep your mind as quiet as possible and wait to see if any insights or ideas come to you. If they do, be sure to write them down so you don’t forget them.
Most often, your angels won’t mince words; they will get across their point in the quickest, simplest way possible. They might give you a simple reminder, like: “Release your worry and trust that all will be well.” Or they might give you practical advice that gets you moving in the right direction: “Call Jenny; she can help.”
If you don’t receive any obvious answers right away, just trust that the answer will arrive with perfect timing, and let go of it.
The more you work on opening the lines of communication with your angels, the more you will notice them helping you, sometimes even before you can ask! As time goes on, your angels may introduce themselves to you during your meditation sessions, in your dreams, or even by whispering their name into your ear during a quiet moment. Write these experiences down so you can look back at them later.
In fact, you may want to designate a special journal for your angel work. This can be a fancy leather journal or a cheap lined notebook, or anything in between. In this journal, write down the requests you’ve made to your angels, their answers or insights, and any experiences you have with your angels. Over time, you’ll be able to see how much progress you’re making with your angels’ help, which will encourage you during moments of doubt or fear.
Most importantly, remember that your angels are eager to help you in any way they can. If you allow them to become a part of your daily life, they will make everything flow much more smoothly and easily for you.
