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.
In 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
If 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.
