When I was a child, my Mom told me everyone has a guardian angel. This angel watches over and protects you. I also learned through church that their were angels mentioned in the bible. Even though I had this cognitive knowledge, I didn’t feel angels in my life until I was older. I learned once I was aware and open, I could connect with my angels at any time and any place.
Tips for Connecting with your angels
Here I have listed some general ways to connect with your angels that have worked for me. You may already be doing some of these or perhaps using other ways to connect. Share your methods in the comments down below after you finish reading the blog to help others connect.
Be open- Remember to ask for help. We all have free will. Your angels cannot step in, unless you are willing or specifically ask for their help.
Trust- Believe and know you are worthy of receiving angelic help. If you don’t feel worthy, act as if you are. In fact, expect help because you are a Divine child of God.
Express gratitude- Thank the angels for their connection. You can phrase an affirmation: Angels, Thank you for your presence in my life.
Create some positive energy- Positive energy will increase your frequency and help you connect.
Create a scared space or time. Make sure you are in a quiet place where you will not be interrupted. Shut off your phone and any other electronics. Light a candle and play soft music.
Practice a meditation or visualization. Center yourself through your breath and slow your mind down, in order to receive angelic messages.
Pick some angel cards. I often pick angel cards for myself and my clients during spiritual coaching sessions.
Writing. Connect with the angels through writing. You can start by writing out an intention and write down any and all impressions you receive. Ask the angels a question and allow them to direct your writing instrument.
Prayer. Prayer can be a wonderful way to connect with the angels. Pray to God or address a specific angel with your request.
How Do I Know It’s an Angel? Recognizing the Signs
Angels attempt to connect with us in a variety of ways. It is often ourselves who are blocked or resistant to the communication, either consciously or subconsciously. Once you learn to be open and receive their communications, you won’t doubt anymore.
You will come to learn each angel has a unique sign to connect with you. In general, these are some tell tale signs of connection after you ask for help. This week notice, write down or record all the signs and synchronicities you receive.
Trust your intuition knows. If you feel or know it is an angel, it most likely is.
Here are some ways angels reach out to contact you.
You receive an idea or inspiration
Repeating numbers 1:11, 12:34, 3:33, etc.
The message is direct or lighthearted and full of love
You receive a peaceful feeling
You hear a word or sentence
You hear a song with a specific message to you or you hear songs about angels. There are an endless list of songs about angels. Some songs are Send me an Angel, Calling All Angels, She Talks To Angels, etc. (Helpful Tip: You may want to listen to your favorite “angel” song to increase your frequency and chances of connection)
You see an actual angel
Some angels have a scent associated to them. You may smell a specific scent after your request for help.
You have a dream of an angel
You suddenly meet or see the name of an angel, such as a person named Michael offers you help, after you ask Archangel Michael for assistance.
These are a few of the many ways, angels let us know we are not alone, always cared for and protected. Keep an open mind and an open heart.
