Have you ever heard that voice in your head that cautions you to take the sharp turn in the road a little more slowly, and then an accident happens right in front of you, an accident you just narrowly avoided? Or maybe you’ve heard the stories of mothers who suddenly develop super strength to lift a heavy piece of furniture off their children, or of other miracles in which fraying ropes hold long enough for last-minute rescues or a search team finds an unconscious missing hiker in a remote part of a park because someone had a “hunch.”
More Than Luck
Incidents like these are quite common, but that doesn’t make them any less astonishing! It’s more than luck. The simple reason for the frequency of these amazing events is that every single person has their own guardian angel, protecting them at all times.
Your guardian angel is present right now, watching you, keeping you out of harm’s reach, and stepping in to help in the face of danger. That mother was able to lift a heavy item because she was blessed with the assistance of a heavenly hand. That search party member who had a “hunch” was receiving a message from an angel—perhaps both his guardian angel and the lost hiker’s angel. As a spiritual teacher and energy healer, I can’t tell you how many stories I’ve heard similar to these in which “miracles” are really the result of angel bodyguards doing their duty. Take a minute to think about your own close-calls. I bet at an angel was involved in at least one of them.
Angels are celestial creatures who are connected to God or Source or Spirit, or however you define the unconditional love of the higher realms. Angels’ “job” is to act as messengers between Source and you—they’re quite literally light bearers, bringing light to Earth and inspiring people to be their best selves. This is why invoking angel guides and the study of angels work so well in tandem with energy healing—the goal of each is to expand your awareness and facilitate your transformation into the beacon of light you were born to become.
Of course, in order to be your best self, you have to be healthy and safe, and angels can help you with that as well. Here’s how:
1. Angels are always available when you ask for help.
Aside from life-or-death situations, like the examples above in which angels actually saved lives, angels will not interfere with your free will. Angels’ purpose is to spread light and love, and taking away your ability to choose your own path goes against that purpose. Angels will sit back and let you do as you please, but if you want guidance, all you need to do is ask.
You can call on angels for anything that feels threatening, from a creepy person who seemed to be following you, to an abusive relationship, or even if you just need a dose of divine love from a judgment-free celestial being, angels can be by your side in less time than it would take to send a text. You’ll soon remember when you thought text and email were fast! With angels, you can call them in a tiny fraction of a second. You can even contact your angels in your dreams, or through meditation. Once you know how to contact your angels, they will feel as close as your shadow, easy to turn to for guidance, comfort, or protection when you need it most.
2. There are multiple angels on your speed dial.
Your guardian angels are yours for life, always keeping an eye out for your safety, but there are also additional angels you can call on in specific times of need. For example, Archangel Raphael is associated with healing. Even his name means “one who heals.” Raphael would be a good choice for angelic assistance anytime you need healing.
Other angels have different areas of expertise, and there are many different types of angels, though only some are available to receive contact from humans. Angels, like humans, have their specialties, and learning more about which angels can help you when, and how to contact each type to ask for help is a great place to begin your angel studies. With only a little bit of effort, you can begin contacting your angels anytime you need help with anything from the energy to get through a tough day at work to guidance about whether or not to buy a house or start a business to whether or not to consider someone a potential partner.
3. Angels help you release negative emotions.
One of the tenets of energy healing is that it’s vital to keep your chakras and energy field clear of negativity. Over time, if lower level feelings of anger or shame or envy or what have you are not dealt with, they can get stuck in your body, creating crimps in your energy flow, which eventually lead to physical health issues.
Likewise, if traumas from the past are not properly processed and released, they too can become trapped in your energy field. Whatever the source of the negative emotions, once they become body-bound, they act like plaque in a clogged artery, and must be removed in order to allow for the free-flow of energy to resume.
Angels can help you start processing these emotions, so you can begin to clear your energy field. Before you go to sleep, ask for your angels to gently begin to lift some of the emotional baggage from your body and field, and notice in the morning that you may feel lighter. Just by asking an angel to work on you brings light into your field and body, which pushes out the darkness. Attending healing courses and working with a trained energy healer is also a beneficial move to rid your body and field of unwanted negativity.
These are just a few of the ways in which angels keep you safe. In addition to steering you away from physical danger like falling ladders or car accidents, angels also keep dark forces at bay, lead your spirit on adventures while you’re dreaming or during deep meditation, and teach you what unconditional love truly feels like. Once you’ve experienced the presence of your angel, you’ll feel less alone knowing they are always ready to jump in and help, and you’ll feel more secure, more at peace, and full of a love that goes beyond any human limitations.
