Depending on your point of view, asking an Angel for help may seem like an entirely whimsical fantasy or an incredibly presumptuous undertaking.
Angels are part of all major religions: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and more. They also span all time--the experience of Angels pre-dates Christianity and exists across many cultures. Angels are a powerful unifying presence for all of us, regardless of our spiritual beliefs. When Americans were recently surveyed about their belief in Angels, over 73% said they did believe in Angels.
The purpose and presence of Angels are almost universally consistent: they carry the message, or presence, of God to us in ways we can experience and comprehend. The word Angel means "Messenger of God." It is derived from the Greek word for messenger, "Angelos". Angels were created as servants of creation and their service is to work with each of us and each of us, regardless of station or situation, has equal access to Angels and their divine assistance.
Angels translate that which is beyond our ordinary consciousness into a form that we are capable of understanding. They choose the method of communication that the individual they appear to, will be most receptive to--whether this be via our ordinary five sense or via our more subtle senses of visions, dreams, intuition, feelings or simply the sense of suddenly knowing something with absolute convictio--something that a moment before we were not even aware of.
Angels remind us of the good we carry within us, the good that we truly are. It is their mission to strengthen our awareness of our innate good. As we grow stronger in our own good we become more and more able and willing to share it.
Our highest qualities, abilities, talents, feelings and perceptions of love that we carry within us, are the jewels of our soul and the seeds of our heart. They are our most blessed gifts and we carry them for ourselves and others.
Angels assist us in developing and expressing our gifts and stay with us throughout our lives for encouragement, support, guidance, and protection. Our guardian Angels are devoted to helping us to express our noblest qualities.
Angels' ability to help you is truly limited by only one factor: your willingness to allow them to.
The simplest way to ask an Angel for help begins with calling upon them--by name, or simply call "All Angels that can help me now." Focus upon the Angel, or Angels, you feel most drawn to. The most frequently mentioned Angels are Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel. The "el" in the names of so many Angels means "of God."
Angels are invoked by the simple and sincere calling of our heart. At a gathering of those sharing methods of invoking Angels, the most touching came from a six year old boy who, with a big smile, said: "I just say, 'Come here Angels!' "
When we call upon Angels, we are calling ourselves to be receptive to them. Angels are always present, always at hand to give assistance.
When we call upon Angels in meditation, prayer, sacred ceremony, or with a simple thought in daily life, we are really preparing ourselves to receive communion with them. Our awareness heightens, our consciousness rises, our subtle senses begin to open and expand. Our energy increases and the frequency that we vibrate at also increases. Generally one of our senses leads the others in sensing heavenly Angelic presence. Whether this is feeling, seeing, hearing, heat, tingling, visioning, or knowing, one sense tends to be out front and, with practice, becomes the signal that we are making a deeper connection.
As we ask Angels to work with us to help us bring forth our greatest gifts, often obstacles that we have long been struggling with will fall away. We find resources and paths that moments before we did not realize were there for us. Synchronicities increase and the loving hand of serendipity may touch us more frequently.
Remember that every time you ask an Angel, you are heard and the Angels help you. Be careful to release your expectations of how they will help you, how it will look, what you will receive. Your soul and the Angels know much better than your mind what will most serve you. Practice simple awareness and observation of what comes to you after asking the Angels for help. The small and subtle is often much more powerful than the dramatic.
Practice acknowledgement and gratefulness for each gift--these are the stepping stones along the path of allowing Angels to be more present in our lives.
The practice of calling upon Angels becomes more practical as we work with it. Stay with it. Angels help us to have the very things our hearts and souls most dearly wish for. Trust the wisdom of your soul for guidance and allow yourself to move more deeply into relationships with the Angels--let heaven help you!
