The people I consult with in my work as an empathic psychic reader and angel channeler are often going through a difficult time in their lives. Many feel abandoned, helpless, frustrated and alone. For some, a relationship has ended, a job has been lost, or a loved one has died unexpectedly.
The first message the angels usually give me in these readings is: “Tell them they are not alone.”
But while the angels are here to support, guide, and comfort us in our daily lives, they are not meant to live our lives for us or make decisions for us. It’s important to understand the role of angels in our lives and how we can accept their guidance without giving up our own agency. We grow in strength, wisdom, character, and self-esteem when we face and overcome challenges of our own accord.
There are indeed many stories and reports of angels intervening in life-threatening situations, which is wonderful. This phenomenon is well documented. But we must not confuse divine intervention in extreme, life-threatening situations with their constant intercession in our everyday lives. That is not their role or calling.
Over the years, I have seen time and time again that some of the most important primary purposes of the angels in our lives are to remind and reassure us that we are not alone; but also that we can and will overcome whatever challenge is in front of us at any given moment.
Understanding the true purpose of angels is essential to recognizing their impact and significance. Angels are celestial beings who serve as messengers and guardians, offering help and comfort to individuals as they navigate life’s tumultuous journey. They play a significant role in our daily lives, providing support, guidance, and comfort as we navigate through the complexities of existence. But they are not our nannies or babysitters.
The Truth About Angelic Support
The angels have known us since before we were born and continue to watch over us as we go through triumph and tragedy. They are ever vigilant, ever cheering us on, ever guiding us with signs and messages toward our highest good. They are unwavering in their belief in our ability to rise to the full expression of our heart’s desire in this lifetime.
The true purpose of angels transcends conventional understanding as they serve as emissaries of divine intervention and compassion. Their existence is intertwined with the spiritual fabric of the universe, radiating an aura of benevolence and protection. Angels are not meant to overshadow human action, but to act as beacons of hope and reassurance, gently nudging us toward enlightenment and fulfillment.
Angels are friends to all of us, regardless of faith or dogma. They are truly here to serve. Most of the time they are subtle and their voices come through in feelings of comfort, love, peace, or a very deep sense that a course of action we are about to take is either joyful or dangerous.
They are not our judge or jury. They are always our advocate, without question. While they cannot interfere with the consequences of our choices, they can support and help us heal, learn from our choices, and create more happiness and success.
Angels provide unwavering support by instilling a sense of strength and resilience during challenging times. Their ethereal presence brings a profound sense of guidance, offering clarity amidst the chaos of daily life. Through subtle whispers of encouragement and gentle nudges in the right direction, angels become pillars of comfort in moments of distress and uncertainty, enveloping us in a blanket of comfort and serenity.
But they have no power over us or our lives. They merely remind us of the power within us and strive to show it to us. This inner divine power has its roots or spiritual origins and is expressed in our daily choices. How we treat ourselves, how forgiving we are with others, how we share with those less fortunate than ourselves, and most importantly, how we treat those we claim to love.
Accepting personal responsibility means acknowledging and embracing our free will and the power to make our own choices. While angels offer guidance and support, it is ultimately up to us to exercise our free will and make decisions that align with our values and goals. This empowerment through choice allows us to take charge of our lives and move toward our desires.
Respect, Gratitude, Honor, Integrity, Joy. Calling these qualities out of ourselves is why they are here. Our physical expression of these things is what grounds love and all that comes from love in this realm. This is truly the calling of the angels in our lives.
The Nature Of Angel Guidance
Angel guidance therefore serves as a source of wisdom and insight, offering us perspectives and possibilities that we may not have considered. By being open to these divine messages, we can learn, grow, and make informed decisions that are in harmony with our true selves. It’s important to recognize that angelic guidance is meant to complement our decision-making process, not dictate it.
Angels do not have magic wands that they can wave to make things instantly better. We are personally responsible for our own free will journey in this lifetime. Instead, angels are creatures of service, love, support, and protection. They always answer when called, but our hearts must be open to receive their comfort, protection and support. Some people call them “spirit guides” or “spirit guardians,” which is fine. The label is not important; it is the message and their service to us that matters.
The more pain someone is in, be it emotional, financial or physical, the more I see the angelic realm around them. Surrendering to the presence of these beautiful beings and allowing yourself to be bathed in their healing, loving energy is a profound and powerful experience.
Finding a balance between trusting in angelic support and exercising self-determination is key to accepting personal responsibility. While we trust in the benevolence of angels, we also understand that we are empowered to shape our own destiny through our actions and choices. This harmonious blend of faith and empowerment allows us to navigate life with confidence and accountability.
Angels are beings of unconditional love. There is no judgment, no condemnation in their nature. They have known you before you came into this time and place, and they will be with you when you leave. It is your choice and your responsibility to acknowledge them, to communicate with them, and to allow them to be present in your daily life. They love nothing more than to be called upon to do what they were created to do: be of service.
When seeking guidance and support from angels, it’s important to respect the limits of their assistance. This can be achieved by expressing gratitude for their presence and guidance, and by being open to receiving their help without expecting immediate solutions to all challenges. Understanding that angels are facilitators and not decision-makers in our lives cultivates a respectful and balanced relationship with them. Recognizing these boundaries ensures that the relationship with angels remains harmonious and beneficial.
Connecting With The Angels
Asking the angels for guidance, protection, and support is a deeply enriching and transformative spiritual growth experience. The following are powerful ways to tap into the wisdom and peace of their loving presence:
Simply express your desire to connect with your angels, and then speak to them as you would to a trusted friend. You can begin by saying something like, “Angels, please help me,” or “Guardian Angels, I am open to your guidance and support.
Speak to them from the heart. There is no right or wrong way to pray. Feel free to use your own words and express yourself in a way that feels natural to you. Just be honest and open about your challenges and what you hope to accomplish.
You can ask for guidance, protection, healing, or any other kind of support you need. Be specific in your request and set a clear intention. We can only receive the help or guidance we specifically ask for, no more and no less.
It is important to pray on a regular basis. The more you pray to the angels, the stronger your connection will become. Try to set aside some time each day to pray, even if it is only for a few minutes.
The most important thing is to have faith that the angels will hear your prayers and answer them in the best way possible. Trust in their love and guidance, and know that you are never alone.
After you finish your prayer, remember to take a moment to thank the angels for their support and kindness. Express your sincere gratitude for their presence and willingness to help you.
Positive, empowering statements that can help strengthen your connection with the angels and increase your faith in their ability to help you. Some examples of affirmations you can use are:
Angels surround me with love and light. I am open to divine angelic guidance. I am grateful for the love and support of the angels. I trust the angels to guide me to my highest good. The Angels keep me safe and protected each day. I am open to receive the wonders and blessings that the Angels bring.
Begin by relaxing your body and focusing on your breathing. Visualize a warm, protective white light or stream of energy surrounding you, emanating from your heart and expanding outward, creating a safe and protected space.
Now call upon the angels. Reach out to them with your heart, mind and soul. You may call upon your guardian angel, specific archangels, or simply ask for the presence of loving angels.
Visualize the angels appearing before you. They can take any form that resonates with you, be it human-like figures, shimmering lights, orbs, energy sparkles, and so on. If you have difficulty visualizing, focus instead on the feeling of the angels’ presence.
Feel the love and support emanating from the angels. Open your heart and mind to receive their guidance and wisdom. If you have a specific request or question, share it with the angels.
You can speak to them directly or simply hold the thought in your mind. Pay attention to any thoughts, images, feelings, or sensations that arise during your meditation. These may be messages from the angels offering guidance, comfort, or inspiration.
When your meditation is complete, remember to thank the Angels for their presence and support. Feel their love and light filling you with peace and joy, then slowly return to your body, take a few deep breaths, and when you feel ready, slowly open your eyes.
Repeat this meditation regularly to deepen your connection with the angels and experience their guidance in your daily life. There are many guided angel meditations available online and in audio recordings that can provide additional support.
ANGEL CARD READING
Angel card reading is a very inspiring way to connect with the angelic realm and receive the guidance and inspiration of the angels in your life. Here’s a guide to doing your own reading.
Choose a deck. There are many different angel card oracle decks available, each with its own unique artwork and messages. Choose one that resonates with you or feels right for your situation.
Clean your cards. Some people like to cleanse their cards before using them to remove any negative energy. You can do this by smudging them with sage or incense, placing them in the moonlight, or simply holding them to your heart and asking the angels to bless them.
Choose a space. Find a quiet and comfortable place where you won’t be interrupted and can concentrate on your reading.
Set your intention. When you are ready to begin, set your intention for the reading with a prayer, affirmation, or visualization. Be clear about what you want to learn or receive from the angels through this reading. Are you seeking guidance for a specific situation, or are you simply looking for general support or inspiration?
Choose a spread. There are many different angel card spreads you can use, each with its own focus. Some popular spreads include the Three of Cards, the Celtic Cross, and the Relationship Spread. Choose a spread that feels right for you or the situation you’re seeking guidance for.
Shuffle the cards. Hold the cards in your hands and shuffle them thoroughly. You can shuffle while concentrating on your intention, or just use a random shuffling technique.
Draw the cards. Pick the cards one at a time and place them face down in the positions of your chosen spread.
Interpret the cards. Begin by looking at each card individually and considering the image, the message, and any keywords or phrases associated with it. Use your intuition and let the Angels guide you as you interpret the meaning of each card in relation to your chosen spread and intention. Look for connections and patterns between the cards in your spread. Consider how they relate to each other and what overall message they are trying to convey to you. Don’t be afraid to ask the Angels for further clarification if you need it.
Record your impressions. Take some time to immediately write down what the angels have shown you in the cards. This will help you to remember, process, and reflect on the messages you receive. Be open and receptive to the messages in the cards.
Take positive action. Based on the guidance or suggestions you received in the reading, consider what changes you can make or actions you can take to move forward in your life.
CONSULTING A PROFESSIONAL
While it can be rewarding to do your own angelic meditations or angel card readings, there are several benefits to consulting a professional angel reader or channeler. Professional angel practitioners have extensive knowledge and experience and can offer deeper insights and interpretations than you may be able to achieve on your own. Truly gifted readers have developed intuitive, psychic or mediumistic abilities that allow them to pick up on subtle nuances and deeper levels of spiritual wisdom from the angelic realm and the Akashic Records. This leads to deeper and more insightful readings.
It is also difficult to be completely objective when reading for yourself. A professional reader can offer a fresh perspective and help you see things you may have missed. Reputable angel readers also create a safe and supportive space where you can feel comfortable sharing your concerns and receiving guidance. They offer unconditional acceptance and non-judgment, allowing you to be vulnerable and open to the messages the angels have for you.
Investing in a professional angel reading can be a valuable investment in your well-being. The insights and guidance you receive can help you make positive changes in your life and achieve your goals. Ultimately, the decision to seek a professional angel reading is a personal one. However, if you are looking for deeper insights, expert interpretation and support on your journey, consulting with a professional angel practitioner can be a valuable resource.
