What is it like to be your Guardian Angel?

Quick … what is the first thought that came into your mind when you read this title? Be honest and post it in the comment section below before you think about it too much.

Was it My Guardian Angel has it easy peasy because I’m so intuitive, open and willing to be guided. Or was it more like I need to give some battle pay to my Guardian Angel because even though I wish for many things, I subconsciously fear change and I dig my heals in the ground every step of the way.

We all have a guardian angel, and some of us have many. What do you think it is like to be your guardian angel? If you are like most people, did any of these words come to mind: difficult, challenging, stubborn, won’t listen, won’t move? For years, I know that I was a difficult subject for my guardian angels. I have several guardian angels, each have names, and many are animals. They have come to me at various times over the years through dreams or by having their name/message come into my mind. When that happens, I know they were talking loudly to get my attention. Guardian angels generally talk softly to us … in whispers. And if we can tune out the chaos that surrounds us, settle down into some quiet time, and talk to them, you will be amazed at what guidance you receive.

If we listen to our guardian angels:

  • we would have peace
  • we would have perfect guidance at all times
  • we would be in the right place, the right job, the right relationships at the right time (check out this great article from Doreen Virtue on How to Meet your Soulmate’s Guardian Angels)
  • we would have a smoother life and would handle bumps and roadblocks with more faith and grace
  • we would have balanced and vital physical and emotional health
  • we would have courage to take a leap of faith and know that all would be well
  • and we would have faith in knowing that no matter what storm you are in, sunshine is just on the other side

When we don’t listen to our guardian angels:

  • we are stressed
  • we are physically and emotionally ill
  • we are question every decision
  • we hold ourselves back from change
  • we talk ourselves out of that perfect job, home, relationship
  • we question everything
  • and we go through life with fear and uncertainty

Now which life would you rather lead? One with guardian angel guidance or not?

Several years ago, after I became an Integrated Energy Therapy Master- Instructor (which is all about angelic healing), I found myself talking to angels all of the time. When I travel, I talk to Archangel Michael for protection and Archangel Gabriel to get me easily to where I need to be. There are dozens of angels that I frequently converse with, even starting the day by asking What would you like me to do today? And when I give myself even just a minute to close my eyes, breathe deeply, and listen … I always get an answer.

This is one of many angel oracle decks that I work with on a daily basis.

Since doing this, my life has been divinely guided. And while everything is not perfect and rosey 24/7 (because sometimes I fall back into the pattern of not listening), I can say that when I talk to my guardian angels, listen for their guidance and heed it, life is so much better and I have little, if any, fear.

So how to the angels talk to me? It comes to me as:

  • a thought that crosses my mind
  • an idea to do or create something
  • an image of a person, pet or place
  • a definitive yes or no in my mind when I ask a question
  • a strong feeling in my body (usually my stomach) when I meet someone or I’m asked to do something
  • seeing outward messages (like license plates, business signs, formations in the clouds, pennies or feathers on the ground)
  • through working with oracle card decks
  • and through this divine oil blend from Young Living called White Angelica

White AngelicaIf you wonder who your guardian angels are, simply ask and then get quiet to hear the answer. You won’t lose anything by talking to your angels and you can do it privately. What do you have to lose?

Call on your angels

Do you believe that you have a guardian angel? Do you believe that there are angels that you can call on to provide support and protection when you need it? Most people have not thought about angels or may be dismissive of them. Yet most religious traditions talk about the work of angels.

Disclaimer: This post is discussing angels in a non-religious manner. Speaking to or working with angels is not intended to intervene with your connection to your Higher Source; rather, connecting with angels is a way to enhance your spiritual connection.

 Whether you believe in angels or not, they are at work everywhere and for everyone. Each person has one or more personal guardian angels. There are many nonphysical things in life that we do not understand and humans tend to be dismissive of anything that cannot be proven through a scientific test or seeing with your own eyes. And that is a very limited way to live. But if you open your vision (your eye sight as well as your inner sight), you may realize that you have had angel encounters.

Angel encounters come in many different forms. You may shift your driving down a different road and avoid a big accident; you may hear a voice telling you to stop or move; you may feel a warm embrace during a moment of grief or sadness; or you may actually have a physical encounter with an angel. Let me tell you about one of my encounters.

SedonaIn January 2012, I was visiting Sedona, Arizona. While sitting on a hillside looking over the valley in one of the energy vortices, I was thinking of things in my life that needed to move on and other things that I wanted to bring in. While sitting there, I did not see anyone else on the hillside. Yet out of nowhere, a man in his mid-60’s appeared, walking with a stick and whistling. He was truly the happiest person I had seen. He walked directly to me and asked me if I was enjoying the energy of the vortex. I replied that I was. He then told me to take anything that I no longer wanted, old energy or old situations, and send them into the vortex. He said that the vortex would transform the energy and send back what I am ready to receive. It was like a prophet was speaking to me.

He then handed me a red rock in the shape of a heart. I collect rocks and crystals in the shape of hearts. Did he know this? He then smiled, turned and walked away whistling. I looked down at the rock and then back up to thank him and he was gone. It was only 1-2 seconds that I looked at the rock and he literally disappeared on the side of the hill. What I have described is a classic physical angel encounter.

Angels come to us to offer wisdom that we are ready to hear, to give us gifts, and to help and guide us when we ask for help. We always have free will. But you will notice that when you ask for help, it will come to you. And when you take the guidance, everything works out for the best.

Here are a few angels that you can call upon when you need guidance or help:

  • Archangel Ariel – for manifesting and nature
  • Archangel Azrael – for comfort during grief
  • Archangel Chamuel – for career and life purpose, when you’re fearful
  • Archangel Gabriel – for direction and creativity
  • Archangel Haniel – for grace
  • Archangel Michael – when you need protection and courage
  • Archangel Raphael – for physical healing
  • Archangel Uriel – for harmony and problem solving
  • Archangel Zadkiel – for forgiveness

Archangel card deckIf you want to learn more about how to communicate and work with angels, Doreen Virtue has written numerous books. One of my favorites is Archangels and Ascended Masters: A Guide to Working and Healing with Divinities and Deities. Doreen Virtue has also created several angel oracle card decks. My favorites are Angel Tarot Cards and Archangel Power Tarot Cards (see card layout to the left). When you work with the cards, you can receive angelic messages. Check out these videos where I demonstrate how the cards work.

I would love to hear from you about any angel encounters or guidance you have received. So post a comment or send me an email.
