Some of us feel alone. We think we are doing it by ourselves, with no assistance from anybody. As a professional intuitive I’ve run into this many times and I’ve comforted a lot of people. One of the main things I tell them is that they are never, not ever alone. Period. Point blank.
The truth is that we are surrounded by many spiritual beings devoted specifically to us and to our lives, as is described in this passage:
“For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands, that you do not strike your foot against a stone…” Psalms 91:11-12
Now, while I am not endorsing a specific religious system (far be it from me), I do believe that this passage reflects the truth. When creating us, Source Energy — that energy we would call God energy or Creator energy — put into place specific infrastructure and support, knowing we would need it throughout our various incarnations. God knew we’d need help from time to time. Friendly suggestions. A gentle hand to steer us in the right direction. Intervention in times of catastrophe. God knew we needed friends in Spirit, and that is why God gave us our angels.
Yes. We all have angels. Some of them are Archangels — one of which, by the way, directly relates to you — yet most of them exist within the angelic sub-classes which operate under the purview of the Archangels. All people have at least one personal angel. Most people have about five or six personal angels. Some people have even more than that. No matter who we are, or where we are, or even how good or bad we are…we all have angels standing next to us.
I realize it’s one thing for me to say that and quite another for you to feel or to know that. I get it. For that reason, I’d like to give you a little challenge. I want you to take a chance. I want you to strike up a relationship with your angels, operating on the presumption that they are in fact around. You might have to set aside your disbelief or your skepticism to do this. You might feel a little silly or childish. That’s okay; do it anyway. I’m asking because I know once you do you’ll see how engaged your angels really are, and this has the potential to change your life.
So, you may be wondering: How Do We Develop A Relationship With Our Angels?
Thankfully, it’s not hard. Follow the five steps below and you will be interacting with your angels in no time.
1. Ask For Confirmation That They’re There
In order to know for certain that you have angels, you might want a little bit of proof. Fair enough. The easiest way to get validating evidence from your angels is to directly ask them to let you know they are there, and also to identify or name themselves.
They will always answer this request. They will show themselves in one way or another, simply because you asked. However, keep in mind that at first angels communicate with us subtly, and usually on the periphery or the outskirts of our lives. They like to validate their presence through things like double rainbows, patterns, feathers, sequences of numbers, coins, serendipity, and flashes of light, etc. Look for these and anything else out of the ordinary, because it is quite possible this is your angels’ way of validating their presence.
If you’ve asked specifically for your angel’s identity/name, make sure to check for a specific name repeatedly coming up in your environment. Repeatedly means at least three times. For example, you asked your angel to name itself and the next day you meet someone named Christopher at the grocery check out. Two days later you pick up a book and the main character’s name is Christopher. Three days later you meet a new co-worker named Christopher and one week after that you hear someone outside your house yelling the name Christopher. If this happens you can be reasonably sure that your angel’s name is in fact Christopher.
2. Create A Special Altar For Your Angels
The more serious we are about our interactions in the world of Spirit, the faster and more powerfully Spirit shows up for us. For this reason, consider creating an altar in a specific spot that includes items dedicated to your angels and to your interaction with them. An altar is a sacred and set-apart place where you do devotional, contemplative, affirmative, and intentional work.
Once you’ve chosen a spot, decorate the altar with things like flowers that match the colors of your angels, or essences related to your angels, and other things like crystals, charms, medallions, and art. You don’t need a huge altar to do this; one level within a bookshelf will serve just fine. What matters is your sincerity and dedication, and your willingness to interact with your angels.
The more you interact with your altar and the items upon it, the more the altar is charged and “powered up”. Consider handling crystals on the altar while standing in front of it and saying your angel’s name. Or you can light some incense while saying a specific prayer that calls in your angels. (See below.) You will find that the energy of the altar will strengthen the more you use it in alignment with the purpose for which it was created (in our case, to interact with our angels). That’s because the altar itself becomes a kind of gateway between you and your angels, and this gateway will be powerful.
3. Write A Special Fiat To Contact Your Angel
A fiat is a kind of prayer or invocation meant to specifically address an angel, saint, or master. Some angels — such as the Archangels — have fiats already created for them by the church with which they are affiliated. You can use these fiats (irrespective of whether you are a member of the church) or you can create your own. I prefer to create my own, and suggest that you try this, as well.
Put on your creativity-cap and write a beautiful prayer that literally calls out to your angel. You can begin by addressing the angel specifically (using its name if you know it). You can also include the angel’s special attributes and characteristics that you would like to tap into. For example, you can reference Archangel Michael’s power and protection when seeking power and protection in your own life.
Your fiat can also directly ask for what you seek or provide a task for your angel. Whether what you need is health, protection, strength, love, or abundance — you can ask for what you want specifically and you can put that request right into your fiat.
Make sure to conclude your fiat with a sentence or two reflecting your thanks for their help. Gratitude is very high vibration, and the more we feel it (and direct it) the more we draw circumstances and conditions into our lives that cause us to be more grateful. Letting your angels know you are thankful is not just the right thing to do, it adds high vibration power to the prayer itself.
4. Talk To Your Angels … A Lot
One of the main ways we learn about one another is through talking. Spending time. Chatting. Feeling each other out. You can’t have a relationship with anyone without some level of intimacy.
The same thing applies when we are cultivating a relationship with our angels. We must make it a point to talk to them all the time. We can also talk to our angels about anything — even the clothes we should wear that day or the meal we should make. I personally chat with my angels (and my emissaries) all day every day, sometimes addressing them as a large group, sometimes pinpointing this one or that one and addressing them specifically.
I ask them questions. I tell them jokes. I ask for a hug when I need it. Because I know they are right there, I make it a point to interact with them as I would a cherished friend. Would you invite your best friend over to your house and then ignore her all day? Of course not. You’d have fun! You’d share things. You’d get deep. Do the same thing with your angels.
5. Be Observant
It’s one thing to talk to our angels and ask things, but it’s quite another to actually wait and listen for answers. Keep in mind that angels — especially in the beginning — will answer subtly, or softly. They answer in patterns, in whispers, in hunches, in shifts in energy. You must be paying attention to all of these if you want validating evidence, because that is how they give it.
I often tell my students that more than 90% of all Spirit messaging is completely missed by us, because we are not paying attention. We ask and then leave the conversation entirely. We knock and then walk away from the door before it opens. And it’s our loss! Because anytime we ask, Spirit answers. Your angel will answer. Yet if you’re not observing your environment and actively looking for that answer, you are likely to miss it.
Over time you will recognize how your angels prefer to answer you. Maybe it’s through nature, or dreams, or intuition, or direct vocal guidance (which is pretty rare). Whatever their angelic language, once you know it you will recognize them more quickly the next time they attempt to get your attention.
Relationships are back and forth. They are intimate. I realize some of us might feel at a disadvantage because we can’t actually see our angels, or hear them. We cannot feel that they are there. Nonetheless I am asking you to take a leap of faith and ask your angels to let you know they’re there. To give you a name. A sign. Tell them you want to have a relationship, and you need their help to do this.
And then watch, because they will give all of that to you, and so much more.
