What are angels?The word Angel comes from the Greek word ‘angelos’, which means ‘messenger’ their purpose, is to serve us and encourage us to grow and expand your consciousness. Angles exist on a different frequency, which is why we are unable to see them in ordinary ways. Angels never have been human and humans never evolve into angels. Angels can assume human form temporarily however.
Don’t confuse angels with your guides because your guides have lived on this planet as humans. In fact it is Highly likely that you have met your guides we usually have several in previous incarnations. A spirit guide may have been a deceased loved one such as a parent or grandparent someone who may even have passed before you were born. You can ‘feel’ the difference between an angel and your guide as angels have a higher vibratory energy frequency.
We all have our own special Guardian angel and they journey with us throughout all of our numerous incarnations, they know you inside out and love you unconditionally. We also have another accompanying personal angel who works along side your guardian angel but is present only in one incarnation. This angel is present with you from the moment the soul decides to reincarnate until the point of death. In your next incarnation a different angel will accompany you.

Communicating with your angelsThe angels will not normally intervene in your life unless you request their assistance, so normally unless in an emergency your angels won’t interfere. There are many ways you can call upon your angels we will go deeper into this a little further on. Remember when you do decide to call your angels your request must be positive and must never be harmful or hurtful to others.
It shouldn’t interfere with your karma either there are certain lessons your soul must learn if progress is to be made in this lifetime. Part of the law that governs angels is that they may not interfere with your free will, except in times of danger when your life may be threatened and it is not yet time for your soul to transition. When calling upon your angels remember to go to the special, sacred place you have created when you wish to communicate with them.
You have probably heard from your angels at some time or another but you just didn’t realize it. It’s that feeling or voice that says ‘watch out’ or makes you feel like you just have to do something, your inner voice.
How to communicate with your angelsFirst you must find a quiet time and place in your day. Go somewhere where you know that you will not be disturbed. Take the time to sit and relax. Take a few deep breaths and let any negative thoughts or feelings drift away. You will find this simple breathing exercise helpful in relaxing your body and mind. Take a deep breath from deep in your diaphragm, in through your nose. Hold this breath for a count of 4. Then slowly exhale through your mouth to a count of 4. Repeat this at least 3-4 times.
Try to keep your mind alert but peaceful. Now make a point to personally invite the spirit of the angels to enter your heart. You may simply say “angels, I invite you into my heart and into my life.” Focus on the areas you require guidance in. Make up your mind that you will receive whatever guidance it is you’re seeking. Believing this will help you to receive it. Just be patient and let it happen.
Remember that angels are gentle spirits. You must listen carefully for their quiet, inner voice. Let your heart and mind go with the spirit and allow their gentle presence and that quiet, inner voice to speak to you. You may feel a sense of peace and clarity, a quiet energy, and sometimes a chilly or warm tingling coming over you.
This all depends on how much you are able to let go. You may want to have a notebook or a journal handy so that you can write down any thoughts or words that might come to you. Just try to record what comes to you, whatever pops into your consciousness. If you have a particular need, ask a question and just listen. Remember that, like everything else that’s worthwhile, it might take a little bit of time for you to become comfortable enough with the process for it to be able to fully work for you.
Be grateful after an angelic experience. Let the angels know that you will be contacting them again and that you will try to become more aware of them in your daily life. Invite them to bring peace, protection, healing and guidance into your life. You may find that if you seek their presence on a regular basis that your relationship with them will only continue to grow and become an even greater benefit to you.
The angels hear the prayers of your heart, and just by your mental cry for help, they flock to your side. You can also consciously ask for more angels to surround you or your loved one. Parents can ask for angelic baby-sitters to guide and protect their children throughout the day. If a loved one is travelling, ask Raphael and the angels to watch over the journey. Ask the angels to help your friends who are in need of comfort and direction. Some ways to call upon the angels include: Writing a letter to the angels. Pour out your heart when discussing your confusions, hurts, and anxieties. Hold nothing back, so that the angels can help every part of you and your situation.
Angels are glowing with the light of love, so they don't have a physical form. However, angels can take on a physical appearance by projecting a mental image to us, if this will help us. So if you visualize cherubs, large glowing beings, or a beautifully dressed angelic woman, the angels will take on this form to help you recognize them. Mentally calling upon angels. Think, Angels, please help me, and they are with you instantly. If you are sincere in your call, the angels hear your mental cry for assistance. You can word your request as an affirmation, such as "I have hundreds of angels surrounding me now," or as a petitional prayer: "Angels, I am in pain and need your help now." You can ask God to send you angels, or you can call the angels directly.
