If you’ve been wondering why you should connect with your angel guides, this article can help you. Everyone is believed to have a guardian angel, no matter what your religious beliefs. There have been various accounts throughout history of people seeing angels. One of the most famous was during World War 1 when several British and German soldiers shared accounts of something they described as an angel, coming out of the sky. This became known as the Angel of Mons. There are also countless books where a variety of people, including people with scientific backgrounds who you wouldn’t expect to believe in angels, describe miraculous encounters with angelic beings.
St. Augustine, an authority on Angels, said, “Make friends with angels.” He recommended that we make personal relationships with angels and that we let our relationships with them deepen, much as we would with any important, intimate relationship. The more we connect with our angel guides, the more divine guidance we will receive.
Asking an angel for help is one of our most powerful spiritual practices. We can ask the angels for immediate help and they will assist. We have free will and they are unable to intervene unless we ask. Here are some ways we can connect with angels to help us enjoy a greater sense of purpose in our lives.
7 Ways you can Connect with your Angel Guides
1) Ask for assistance – The more receptive we are, the more help they can give you. You don’t have to create any fancy rituals. You just need to ask and they will intervene. Angels are non judgmental and will work with everyone. They are also infinite and omnipresent and your request does not diminish them in any way, nor does it affect their ability to help the rest of us at the same time. They exist beyond our experience of time and space and respond to everyone with complete unconditional love.
2) Connect with your inner divine child – As a hypnotherapist, I do a lot of work with the inner child as this is the key to releasing what is no longer serving you and healing the past. Your inner divine child is whole, innocent and pure and recognizes angels as divine helpers who can guide and support them. Lots of children see angels and other things that adults are unable to see because of their innocence and lack of judgement and skepticism when it comes to things we can’t explain.
3) Hand everything over to the angels – surrender everything connect with your angel guides: every issue, problem, worry and fear as well as every good intention and positive outcome you imagine as the result of your request. Release all expectations of how your request will be answered. Sometimes, you might think you have the perfect solution that you’d like the angels to help you manifest, but they will often give you something much better than you ever could have imagined if you release attachment to any outcome.
4) Express Appreciation and Gratitude – When you can show you are happy with things exactly as they are, that’s when the angels can help bring more good things into your life. Keeping a gratitude journal is one of the best things you can do to connect with your angel guides and help manifest more happiness into your life.
5) Know that it is done – Every prayer for assistance is answered and help is always given. If you fear that your request will not be answered, then also ask for help in surrendering fully and not being attached to the outcome. The angels want the best for you and will give you what is for your highest good, even if it might not seem that way.
6) Act quickly on the guidance you receive. – Part of soul wellness is becoming more intuitive. Once you connect with your angel guides and ask for help, watch out for any signs or coincidences that may come into your life in the days that follow. Angelic help is infinite and unlimited, you can not use it up or run out of it. You cannot ask for “too much” and the angels are joyously happy to give to you without limit. The faster you act, the faster you receive more assistance!
7) Celebrate yourself exactly as you are in the moment – Leave any critical judgments or negative feelings in the hands of the angels for healing. Let go of everything that is not of love for yourself and everything around you. In this moment of surrender, much more can be done for you by the angels than you can accomplish on your own. Thank yourself and the angels for deepening the relationship between you.
