definition of angel is messenger. Often these messengers come to
us through intuition, to warn or guide us. Every person has a guardian
angel that is with him or her all the time. This companion angel
was with us as far back as when we decided to come into life as
the person we are today.
Most people primarily think of their guardian angel as a protector.
This does not mean, however, that we can go through our life journey
with no bumps in the road. There are certain things we are meant
to experience in order to learn the lessons those experiences teach
Angels bring us into harmony with
our higher selves. They serve as muses who help us transform our
talent into genius. They offer inspiration. Angels give us new insights,
new creativity. In Catholic school, children in the first grade
are taught about their guardian angels.
One way that angels communicate to human beings is through synchronisms.
Since synchronisms are personal, we must figure out the meaning
of each synchronicity for ourselves. Angels bring new friends and
people into our lives who become kindred spirits in our journey
here on earth. Angels can manage miracles. Angels can remove anxiety.
Sometimes angels even appear in human form.
Other roles which angels play in our
lives are spiritual guide, soul guide, healer, humor transformer,
happiness trainer, mirth maker and prosperity broker. In other words,
angels act as our life coaches.
We can create angel consciousness
within ourselves when we initiate an angel mindset and invite the
angels into our lives. We can get to know our personal angels by
heart. There are several indications of the presence of angels -
tinkling bells, an unexpected fragrant scent (especially rose and
jasmine), the feeling of a strong presence of someone when no one
Angel consciousness occurs when we go beyond focusing on the power
of angels and choose to use the gift of life to love God and do
his works. To have an angelic mind-set involves focusing on faith,
Inspiration and imagination are highly
responsive to angelic guidance. Love vibrates rapidly and angels
vibrate at a high frequency. Therefore, if we develop qualities
that resonate with a high frequency (such as love, peace, gratitude,
humor, joy and compassion), we attract the angels. In order to receive
divine qualities, we must give out divine qualities. "Angels
are here to lead us to our higher selves and to God."
We put ourselves in a better position
to be present both for grace and for angels when we realize that
a special consciousness is connected with the state of grace. Grace
is a gift from God and the angels. Our response to grace should
be gratitude. Gratitude comes when we appreciate the gift of life
instead of feeling entitled to it.
There are training steps to happiness
and some of these are journaling, meditation, gratitude, love, humility,
happiness and harmony. One way of removing worry and negative thoughts
from ones life is to keep a trash bag page in the journal for putting
them in. Other steps to happiness include waking up and experiencing
your senses, bringing humor into every situation, not letting other
people affect your happiness and spreading love throughout the universe.
Harmony can be achieved through a
life that includes prayer, contemplation, meditation, spiritual
study, self-awareness, kindness, compassion and service. If we learn
patience, which is a way of "letting go and letting God",
we will certainly experience more peace than if we are impatient
and feel we must be in control of everything in our life.
The Dalai Lama said that mental stability and mental peace is the
main source of happiness and joy. Practicing compassion is a way
to develop this inner stability. Since we are consciousness, it
isn't other people or events that are enemies to our peace of mind;
it is our internal states and how we react to things. When our minds
are at peace, we are able to draw upon an unlimited energy source.
Nurturing angel practices help us
establish ways to interact with the angels. Wonderful things will
begin to happen in our lives if we spend one hour a day focusing
on spiritual growth. The hour doesn't have to occur in a 60-minute
segment, but can be split into small segments.
Angel consciousness starts when we
establish a personal connection with the angels - allowing ourselves
to be open to them and aware of the possibilities they bring into
our lives. Their language mostly consists of symbols, colors, sounds
and feelings. Often we receive their messages through dreams, intuitive
flashes and fantasies. Angels also instill ideas into our thought
We can also communicate with the angels
through angel mail. Angel mail involves writing your request on
a piece of paper and mailing it to the angels. When you ask for
something, always be sure to add, "for the highest good of
all concerned." Then express gratitude.
Act as though the request has already been granted. Address your
request to your angel and the angels of those involved in your request.
Your angel mail can be "sent" by placing it in a Bible,
jewelry box, wallet, journal or altar - someplace you consider special
You can even call an angel conference,
bringing to it specific people - God, Jesus, goddesses or famous
people who have died. It's fun to do these conferences with a good
friend or small group.
If you are worried about another person's
health, etc. write to their highest angels, asking that they be
given what they most need. Keep in mind, however, that people have
free will and you cannot "make" a person behave in a certain
Since dreamtime is a time when our
spiritual lives flourish, if you clear your mind and gather your
angels around you, you can go to sleep in a higher state of consciousness.
With the angels as our guides, we
can restore balance to our lives. One way to do this is through
ritual. Some things that might be registered with the angels are
goals, dreams, images, and noble thoughts, among others. These can
be registered with the angels through prayer, song, dance, painting,
walking, writing, mediation, building an altar and trance-inducing
We can awaken our prayer voice through
an earnest appeal, a gesture of thanksgiving or an expression of
hopes and needs. There are three kinds of prayer which are (1) confession,
(2) asking for blessings for self or others and (3) giving ourselves
over to God, expressing gratitude and trust in the universe.
Praying connects our light to the Divine Source and is one way we
seek divine wisdom. It is a way to tap into the source of all pure
love. The four basics of prayer are greeting, praise, request and
Our prayers are an expression of our
own relationship to God; therefore, everyone's prayers will be different.
Just as the angels are in the world
but not of it, the same holds true for us when we are spiritual
beings who are guided by the angels. The angels want us to embrace
life, but with consciousness and nonattachment to worldly things,
including our own lives. We need to get past the idea that death
is a punishment.
When we separate ourselves from God
and the angels, from what is right and true, the results are war,
injustice and hatred. The angels request that we stay connected
to God and the light and to our fellow humans.
Remember that there is no power greater
than God and that He shines in every person. Know that with God
all things are possible. We entertain God when we free our spirit
and are true to ourselves. Our angels are always near. It is up
to each of us as to how important we let them be in our life.
