How Do I Connect with my Guardian Angel?

Updated on February 19, 2014

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.

LIGHTEN UP!

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.

ARCHANGEL RAPHAEL

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.

ARCHANGEL MICHAEL

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.

      I have been very ill for around four years now, and at the moment I can no longer walk and use a wheelchair as I have to have both my hips replaced, I have also been told a few weeks ago I will never be able to stand up straight aftet my surgery, before this I had cancer removed 4 times and before that I was ill with stomach problems. I feel like something or somebody has put a curse or something on me, as before that my life was quiet happy. Awhile ago I got a email that would tell me the name of my Gardian Angel, and I have not told them any of my problems but I've been told somebody gave me there carma dept and this is what is making my life unhappy. Now I am being asked for money to remove this dept, it is not a lot of money but I feel Im being scamed. I have been told my Angles name is Amuel. But I feel now there is an angel helping me finally as it bought me to your site and I already feel at PIECE a bit. Also my relationship ended so I'm going to pray and hopefully my Angel had bought me to you where I will really get help. If you have any information on where I should start and get my life back to being happy, you have no idea what this would mean to me. I also feel my Surgeon does not like me, why I don't know, but one thing I do know !!! Is I am going to stand up straight and walk just like I used to. My goodness I'm writing a novel to you, sorry it's just so much bad luck had happened to me and continued to do so. I pray from the bottom of my heart I am now in the right place. Please try to find time to give me some advice. Yours truly Diane.

      What should you do if you get no signs at all? My guess is that you might be very unlucky,or maybe haven't paid attention.

      @JamieLucy: Is it possible that he would ever show himself to me? Is he trying to get me to physically see him? Or is this not something that a guardian angel would do?

      As an author, many stories go through my mind and many ideas. There was one I couldn't get out of my head and it was about a girl who is being watched by two angels. One of them was harder to write about than the other but one of them just seemed to come to me. I felt like it wasn't me writing about this angel. Could this be my own guardian angel trying to tell me about himself? I can't seem to get this angel out of my head. Is he trying to contact me?

      @Lonelyauthor: I feel that this story was 'channelled' through you. Often when we are in our creative mode, we can enter a trance-like state. Being in this state makes it easier for our Angels and guides to channel through us and easier for us to receive what is being given. I feel that this story is one that the Angels would like others to read to help them to feel their connection to the Angels. Yes, I would feel that one of these Angels is your guardian angel and the other was assisting in the channelling of the story to you. I hope this helps. xxx

      I want to connect to my angel but I don't think I can do it myself, how about someone who has experience talk to my angel for me and revel it to me, just ask the angel for its name and how i can invoke him for help and protection from evil
