Interacting with the Spirit World
Robbie Holz, I can hear you saying, I need to know how to reach out to my angels. I’ve got more than a few problems I could surely use their help with.
Fear not, I will not leave you in the lurch. But before we get started, I want to emphasize one pivotal point: communicating with the celestial realm is a process. Contacting angels is not a matter of raising your face toward heaven and asking–even earnestly pleading–for assistance. All your problems will not be magically solved with the stroke of an angelic wand.
However, if you take the process of “reaching out” seriously and learn to view it as a series of steps, I promise you it will yield exponentially increasing results that will impact your life in many positive ways.
First, you must open up to the most powerful being in your celestial team, your guardian angel, because it all begins with awareness of your chief protector in the angelic kingdom.
Reaching Out to Your Guardian Angel
You have your own personal guardian angel, a being that has watched over you since the minute you were born. It should be an enormously comforting thought that you’re never without access to this angelic being. Never. Your thoughts will always bring its presence front and center, but first you must ask.
Angels, even your specific guardian angel cannot just announce themselves. You have to actively engage them by asking for their help. Angels are in your life to be of service. They respect your free will far too much to simply intrude into your world uninvited.
Let’s do a mindfulness exercise that will prepare you for experiencing your guardian angel.
Find a tranquil place where you feel secure and comfortable. It should have some personal significance. Ideally you will be alone.
Once settled, close your eyes and picture everything in your life that you associate with your sense of “self.” Thoughts will begin to fly around into your mind so let these thoughts, impressions and pictures wash over you in waves. Visualize these thoughts as ocean waves washing up on the shore.
Begin to imagine that you are standing in the light of truth and beauty, and that truth and beauty, like rays of sunlight. That’s your divine essence shining through––the most beautiful and essential part of your being.
Now, let’s turn our attention to communicating with the angelic realm. It’s important to know that when you “talk” to angels in your mind, they “hear” you telepathically. Your personal guardian angel is aware of every single thought you have. Every thought, be it a little flight of fancy or a huge epiphany, is transmitted in full directly to your guardian angel. Since this is the case, it is only natural that the way to begin your “ask” to your guardian angel is through your thoughts. If you specifically direct your thoughts to your guardian angel, you will let that compassionate, concerned, and loving entity know you are trying to communicate directly–that you want them to enter your consciousness in an entirely new and exciting way.
Intention Is the Key
To communicate your thoughts to your guardian angel, you need to fill yourself with intention. Make clear that it is your intention for your guardian angel to be a larger, more active presence in your life. Once you set that intention through your thoughts, then simply tell them that you need their help, and be very specific what sorts of help you need.
Over time you will develop a closer and more satisfying connection with your guardian angel. Spend time with them, as you would with a friend. Get to know them. Provide yourself with a very quiet environment where you can sit with your intention and call forth your guardian angel. Ask that they be with you in a more conscious way. Thank them for their presence. But persistence and consistency are key. You can’t do this just once every few months. You can’t develop a close relationship with another human being if you only see or hear from them every six months. The closer you are in this relationship with your spiritual support, the more you will benefit from it.
Angelic relationships resemble human ones. The difference is that your guardian angel will never let you down or betray you in any way. Humans might lie to you or cheat you but angels are quite literally incapable of such negative qualities. Your guardian angel’s purpose is to guide you through your human experience, helping your divine essence to shine through more and more each day.
Once you’ve established a thought-based relationship with your guardian angel you can begin asking for help with specific matters. Never feel like you’re asking for too many things–remember our angels’ mission is to aid us, and your guardian angel’s purpose is to aid you. You can ask for help with anything and everything in your daily life, big or small, specific or general.
You can ask your guardian angel to help you live the highest vision of your soul. You can also ask for smaller things, such as the courage to try something new, or the strength to forgive someone. You may also ask for help with the simplest of things in life. It doesn’t have to be a crisis. They can help you with your next exam. They can help you when you don’t know how to communicate with someone. They can raise the vibrations around you, causing your general mood to improve and for you to be able to share your positivity with others. They can even give you a little extra bit of energy to finish a challenging workout.
Because your relationship with your guardian angel is truly a symbiotic one, it may be easier for you to ask for support if you realize that every time your guardian angel helps you, it enables them to grow because they are serving you out of tremendous love. In truth, you and your guardian angel are in a cooperative, mutually beneficial relationship.
As you focus on your guardian angel, you will become more aware of them and the impact they have on your life. Of course, this takes time and requires some patience. But eventually this will become second nature, and you and your guardian angel and other members of your celestial team will be functioning as a well-oiled unit. At this early stage in your relationship with your guardian angel, make sure to not become frustrated with yourself, or your guardian angel. Keep reaching out with pure intention, and soon miraculous things will happen.
