How Do I Connect with my Guardian Angel?
How Do I Connect with my Guardian Angel?
I am an Angel Energy Healer, Angel Card Reader and Reiki & Seichem Healer and the one question I am asked regularly is "How do I connect with my Guardian Angel?"
Firstly, let me tell you that everybody can connect with their Guardian Angel! People often think that you have to be very holy or psychic in order to make this connection - THIS IS NOT TRUE.
Your Guardian Angel is like a best friend by your side since the day you were born and all you have to do is talk to your Angel - its as simple as that. Your Guardian Angel is waiting and hoping that you will make contact - they want to help and guide you but cannot without being asked.
Connecting with your Guardian Angel does not have to be sombre and serious - relax. The more relaxed you are, they easier it will be to pick up on the signs you are given.
If you are new to this, there is a fun and easy way to know that your Angel is with you-
FEATHERS! Try this exercise, you will be amazed at the results - Relax yourself (you can use breathing techniques or listen to soft music if you like). When you feel relaxed, just ask your Guardian Angel to show you a sign in the physical world to let you know that he/she is with you. My favourite sign to ask for is feathers - just ask your Angel to leave feathers for you. In the few days that follow, you will be amazed at how many feathers you will find. Some people like to ask for coins or other items - it is completely up to you!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I know that I have made contact with my Guardian Angel?
There are a number of ways that the Angels use to let us know of their presence. You may feel a very light breeze on your face, maybe a gentle touch on the arm or just a feeling of love and warmth. Do not try to explain or doubt any sensations you feel - believe these feelings and the connection will be all the clearer
Can I find out my Guardian Angel's name?
Absolutely yes. Just ask. You will not hear the answer like a voice outside of you - more like a name that comes into your mind suddenly. Whatever name you get is right. It may be a very ordinary everyday name or maybe more angelic - it doesn't matter.
Is it possible to see my Guardian Angel?
Angels show themselves in different ways and not everyone can see them at first. Practice meditation and relaxation as much as possible. I see them as lights- sometime small sparkles, sometimes larger coloured lights.
Do I have to protect myself when I do anything like this?
Definitely. The simplest and easiest way to protect yourself is to ask Archangel Michael and the Angels of Protection to surround you in white light. You can visualise an orb of white light and see yourself in the centre of it.
I find it hard to relax enough to meditate - is there anything I can do to make it easier?
Personally, I just use soft music, candles, burn incense etc but if you are completely new to meditation there are a lot of guided meditation cds or downloads out there. I have recommended some of the most powerful and helpful aids below.
Would I not be "bothering" my Guardian Angel by asking for help or guidance all the time?
I am asked this a lot and the simple answer is NO! Guardian Angels are here on earth with us to help and guide us as much possible. They never grow tired of helping. But just remember to thank you Guardian Angel often.
Angel of Healing
Because I am a healer, I work very closely with Archangel Raphael and his team of healing Angels.
I always begin a healing session by calling on Raphael. I then allow Raphael's energy to flow through me (chanelling energy). The effect is instantaneous. Raphael's energy is very calming and soothing but at times can be very intense when a lot of healing is required.
You can ask Raphael to aid healing for yourself or a loved one. You will sense his calming energy easily. Sometimes you may see emerald green light as this is the colour of his healing rays. Don't worry if you don't see it - you can visualise green light to strengthen his connection.
Angel of Protection
Archangel Michael is another angel I work very closely with. He is the Angel of Protection and is often pictured with a sword and shield. The colour associated with Michael is blue.
I call on Archangel Michael before I begin any healing, reading, meditation or any other kind of spiritual practise.
I simply ask him to wrap his blue cloak of protection around me and surround the blue with an orb of white light. Try it - you will feel safe and protected instantly.
You can also use the following prayer if you wish
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Divine Power of God,
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
