Working with Angels

IMG_0542Angel Meditation 

 

Allowing yourself to achieve a deeply relaxed state of mind.

Affirmations

Using an affirmation can help to create encouraging and optimistic thoughts about your goals.

Rituals

following an action (such as lighting a candle) while saying your affirmation will certainly help to make it memorable.

Altars and displays

Arranging your personal effects in such a way that they are a constant reminder of your links with your angels.

Candles

Lighting a candle is a ritualistic way of ‘opening to the light’. Therefore candles are useful for meditations and your angel ceremonies.

Oils and incense

Pure aromatherapy oils are also suitable for your angel work.

Crystals

These beautiful, natural objects are a joy to behold, and are sources of untold power.

Feathers

These are probably one of the most important of the ‘tools’; they are the chosen sign from the angels themselves.

The spheres of Angels and the Archangels

Over many years ancient scholars have tried to classify the angels and sort them into different groups. These groups are called, ‘the angelic hierarchy’ or ‘spheres of angels’. The angels work with humankind as guardian angels are the ones closest to us, the angels at the top of the tree are the angels who work right next to God.

The name ‘angel’ is thought to come from the Greek word ‘angelos’ which means ‘messenger’. In the bible angel Gabriel visited Mary with a message, (he informed her that she was pregnant with the baby Jesus.) This important task makes Gabriel one of two of the best known of all the angels. The other is Archangel Michael, the warrior angel – a protector associated with churches and other places of worship).

The three spheres of the Angel

First Sphere (working closet to God)

  1. Seraphim
  2. Cherubim
  3. Thrones

Second Sphere (looking after the planets)

  1. Dominions
  2. Virtues
  3. Powers

Third Sphere (working closest to humankind)

  1. Principalities
  2. Archangels
  3. Guardian angels.

The Archangels

The Archangels are the best known of all the angels, although their names and spellings do change slightly in different parts of the world.

Here are ten of the best known and their traditional roles:

Ariel

  • In charge of animals and birds.
  • Archangel Ariel is also in charge of the nature Kingdom, which includes the fairies – also called the angels of the Earth.

Michael

  • Often seen in paintings and statues in churches.
  • Archangel Michael is the head of the heavenly armies, so is strong and powerful and usually seen carrying his sword of protection.

Gabriel

  • The messenger Angel
  • Archangel Gabriel is in charge of communication and the patron of postal workers.

Raphael

  • The angelic healer.
  • Archangel Raphael works with doctors, nurses and healers of all kinds. He is also the patron of travellers.

Jeremiel

  • A kind and loving angel who sends you messages in dreams.
  • Archangel Jeremiel helps you to connect to your past lives.

Sandalphon

  • Because of the good work the human prophet Elijah performed on earth.
  • God made him into the Archangel Sandalphon.
  • Carries human prayers up to God.

Metatron

  • Archangel Metatron was once a human man called Enoch.
  • He is the angel who records all human thoughts and deeds and this information is stored in the heavenly ‘Book of Life.’

Uriel

  • The healer of the Earth.
  • Archangel Uriel helps to bring order after earthquakes, floods and fire.

Zadkiel

  • The creative force behind many great works.
  • Archangel Zadkiel helps with ideas and inspiration in your own endeavours.

Daydreaming and Angels …


We naturally fall into the state of consciousness called ‘daydreaming’ several times a day. This relaxed state of mind is where we manifest, create and imagine, it’s also a way of processing large chunks of information that we receive on a daily basis. This peaceful state of mind also puts us in the perfect condition to receive guidance from our guardian angels.

Signs of Angels’ presence

Angels show us they are in our lives in many different ways. They love to bring us visual signs, such as feathers. They bring messages from our friends and relations and they also bring scents and sounds. Angel music (the sound of the heavenly choir) is rare, but can sometimes be heard when reassurance is needed the most, during the loss of a loved one.

Angel secret

Sometimes angels work with humans to help bring messages of comfort to others. Be an angel messenger today. Share a smile or a few kind words with everyone you meet.

Are you up for an Exercise?

Make an angel manifestation poster

If you could have anything in your life what would it be? Your goals only need to be realistic to you. You have to believe in them. Try not to add limitations on your goals or worry about how they might happen. Hand over the solution to your angels and follow their lead and suggestions.

  • Write down the numbers 1 to 20 on a large sheet of paper. List 20 things that you would like to achieve in the next 12 months. These goals can be anything you want.
  • Read through your list and pick out the top five. Highlight them in a bold marker pen. Read them again. Which ones make you feel really excited?
  • Pick, say two to start with. Get yourself two large pieces of white paper. At the top of the page write down your goals in large letters with a felt marker pen. Each page has its own goal.
  • Then write underneath, ‘I am really happy, angels, that I have achieved my goal of….’, and write in a little more detail about your goal, as if you have already achieved it.
  • Decorate your paper. Place a smiling photo of yourself in the middle, and add photos of family and friends around you, particularly those you want involved in the plan or goal.
  • Find photos that represent your goal – a plane, car, uniform for a new job, exotic location, for example – then place them around the outside.
  • When you have finished, put your ‘angel manifestation poster’ in a prominent place, where you will see it everyday.
  • Sit down right now and absorb yourself into your image. Ask your guardian angel to help you ‘see’ very strongly that you are in the situation of your choosing. ‘Feel’ the emotions you would feel if you were actually there or had achieved your goals. At all times know your angel is by the side helping to create exciting opportunities to further your goal – stay alert and follow through any likely situation that arises.

Angel clouds


Watching the clouds pass by is another great way to spot angels. A comfortable spot is very important even if you are just lying on an old blanket.

Fact Alert!

  • Cirrus (long fingers of blood above 18.000 feet) or altostratus (long formations of cloud between 6,000 and 20,000 feet) are particularly beautiful and angel-like.

Cloud watching exercise:

  • It is easier to lie down on the ground, but it also works if you are lying on a recliner.
  • Relax your eyes and gaze softly at the sky, being careful not to look at the sun.
  • Watch as the clouds blend softly together.
  • Can you spot an angel wing, or an angel’s head surrounded by a glowing halo?

Watching clouds helps to put you in a daydreaming state of mind. You might even receive inspiration from your angel when you do this.

True life story:

Angel voices

A few years ago lady J decided to sit outside in a quiet corner of her garden. It was late and the weather wasn’t as good as she’d hoped, but she carried on regardless. It was really gusting and showery but she snuggled under a quilt with a cup of tea. Despite the weather it was cosy!

Lady J was hoping to feel inspiration from her angels so she had a notepad and pen ready just in case. Just before midnight the wind dropped completely and the atmosphere became calm and peaceful. It was then that she heard singing. It was breathtakingly beautiful and the voice seemed to come from everywhere and no where – and then it stopped, almost as soon as it had begun. The voice really touched her heart and she knew that it was a gift. At that moment Lady J knew for sure that she’d had her first angel encounter.

Create an Angel Garden Sanctuary 

  • First you need a chair, a bench or perhaps an old log. A natural back chair is perfect. Back it into the corner or against the wall. 
  • If you are feeling inspirational you could upcycle a chair from a charity shop, design and make your own floral cushions to bring outside with you when the weathers dry!
  • If you have a hidey hole in your garden, this may be the perfect place for your ‘meditation’ area.
  • If you have no shaded spots in your garden, maybe you could shield off an area with scented plants in pots, or use screening from the garden centre, or better still, how about a rose arch, with an old gate and paint a sign then this truly is your area! Be creative, make it your own, somewhere to chill out and relax.
  • You may wish to hang lanterns or candles in pretty holders, as there are many to choose from on the market.
  • You could also string outdoor lights in different colours, to enhance your mood, and invite you in to meditate.
  • Sound is important in your sacred area, adding a water feature is soothing and relaxing, however, make sure you visits the toilet first! The sound of trickling water may make you have the urge to spend a penny!
  • If space is tight, you could use an old dish, place pebbles and crystals inside of it, and place this near your front door or on a windowsill. Keep it topped up with fresh water so it glistens in the sun – ensure you rinse it out regularly so it remains fresh and not stagniot, slimy water.
  • Add some garden angel statues or fairy figurines. Let your imagination go wild!
  • Your space will be magical because you have created a unique area just for you!
  • Gift shops and many garden centres sell natural bamboo wind chimes why not add a chime or two!
  • Also keep a look out for pebbles with natural holes in them – traditionally these are doorways to other realms.

Angel Feathers …

Little white feathers have become the angels prettiest sign. Feathers appear when we need them the most, but they don’t have to be white. I am sure that those industriouss angels will use whatever is easily to hand, that might mean, even a black or bright pink one! Please note, that black feathers do not represent anything bad. 

Ask for a feather sign. The feather may turn up when you least expect it!


An angel feather is always one that appears just when you need it the most or it may appear after you have asked for a sign.

Collect your angel feathers and save them as if they were precious jewels. You can gather them in a pretty jar or box, you can then use them in craft projects, or give them away to loved ones as gifts.

Coincidences and Manifestation

Asking for a sign can mean many things, have you ever thought of a person and had that same person ring you later in the day? Angel coincidences happen all the time. Perhaps the most appropriate sign from your own angels is for you to have meaningful coincidences in your own life.

Let’s look at the word ‘ask’ once again. Asking for what you want is important for it to manifest in your life, so ask your angels for what you want. Always ask for ‘the most suitable solution’ after your request then allow for the angels to come up with an even better plan than the one you considered yourself.

Sometimes you can bring coincidences into your life by creating the vision first of all. Decide what you want, write it down, create an angel manifestation (see below-exercise) poster and then ask your angels to help you bring about your chosen goals.

Exercise: Make an angel manifestation poster

  • Materials needed
  • Three pieces of paper : 1 to write notes, 2 pieces for making posters
  • Marker pens
  • And yourself in a positive mindset!!


If you could have anything in your life what would it be? Your goals need to be realistic ‘to you’. You have to believe in them. Try not to add limitations on your goals, or worry about how they might happen. Hand the solution to your angels and follow their lead and suggestions.

  • Write down the numbers 1 to 20 in a large sheet of paper. List 20 things that you would like to achieve in the next 12 months. These goals can be anything you want.


  • Read down the list and pick the top five. Highlight them in a bold marker pen. Read them again. Which ones make you feel really excited?


  • Pick, say, two to start with. Get yourself two large pieces of white paper. At the top of the page, write down your goals in large letters with a felt tip marker pen. Each page has its own goal.


  • Then write underneath, ‘I am really happy, angels, that I have achieved my goal of …….’, and write in a little more detail about your goal, as if you have already achieved it.


  • Decorate your paper. Place a smiling photo of yourself in the middle, and add photos of family and friends around you, particularly those you want involved in the plan or goal.


  • Find photos to represent your goal – a plane, car, uniform for a new job, exotic location, for example – then place them around the outside.


  • When you have finished, put your ‘angel manifestation poster’ where you will see it every day.


  • Sit down right now and absorb yourself into your image. Ask your guardian angel to help you. ‘See’ very strongly that you are in this situation of your choosing. ‘Feel’ the emotions you would feel if you were actually there or had achieved your goals. At all times know that your angel is by your side helping to create exciting opportunities to further your goal – stay alert and follow any likely situation that arises.

How do Angels contact us?

                                 
Our angels are in contact with us every single day. Of course, that does not mean that we are always aware of that contact. I appreciate that if you don’t know what you are looking for then it is difficult to know when these contacts take place.

Are you a shy, or very quiet person?

Sometimes our angels’ communication is decided by our own personality traits. Therefore, if you are a shy or very quiet person, a dramatic contact from the other world would be frightening, and they would take this into consideration.

If we’re in a mess, is it because we created this mess?

Sometimes their contact with us is dictated by the situation we find ourselves in. If our angels jump in too soon and sort it all out, then what have we learnt from the situation? Challenges in life help to strengthen the soul, giving us more confidence in our own abilities.

Listening angel friends

Have you ever been in difficulties in your life? Of course you have. We all have problems in our lives – it’s part of being human. It’s great though, when you have a good friend. Friends give us the shoulder to cry on when times are hard. We all have a person in our lives who tries to tell us how we might handle a situation better or how we should have done it differently. This can be very frustrating! When we’re down we don’t want some ‘smarty-pants’ to tell us what we did wrong. The best friends are those that listen – just listen. Angels are the friends who listen the best.

So do not be afraid, you always have angels nearby, who are listening to you and your concerns. Start your angel journal today. Write down your questions, or issues you want help with, and await angelic action!

Do you want to have an Angel notebook or journal?

When we write things down we reinforce the message in our minds. Committing something to paper helps us to bring that ‘something’ or something into our lives. It becomes more permanent or fixed as part of our intention. Your angel notes are special and need to be cherished in a special place.

Look out for a hard-cover notebook and cover it with sticky-backed plastic decorated in an suitable pattern. Another thing you might try is to stick your notes (taken from your angel exercises or experiences) in a scrapbook. Cover the scrapbook in pretty angelic paper; or alternatively, you may prefer to use a loose-leaf binder.

Be inspired when creating this most basic of angel tools, your angelic notebook – have fun with it.

Here are some suggestions for your notebook content:

No doubt you will come up with lots of ideas of your own. Take care of your notebook and keep it safe.

Watch this space I have a creative mind so will add some downloads here for you to download for free.

What is the role of an angel?


An angels role in our human existence is fairly straightforward. They protect and they love, this happens in many forms. Generally, angels help us when we are trying to solve problems, however, they are not permitted to take over. Our life problems are what helps us grow. Anything that gives angels power over humans is not allowed, and anything that means they are trying to make someone do something they don’t want to is not permitted.

Angels love to help us to achieve our goals but prefer to act as do-creators rather than magicians. Ask your angels to bring into your life people who can help you with your problems rather than to solve your problems for you. Imagine how empowered you will feel when you achieve your own goals ….. with a little help from your friends.

What angels can do…

  • Send us feelings of love and support
  • Perform dramatic rescues when it’s not our time
  • Appear to warn us of danger and steer us away from hazards
  • Provide important information to help us with decision-making
  • Being human support and guidance when we need it most
  • Help us to help ourselves
  • Mend things
  • Assist with healing
  • Be our friends
  • Substance
  • Matter


What they cannot do ….

  • Bring us the winning lotto numbers
  • Solve our problems
  • Make someone fall in love with you
  • Achieve our goals for us
  • Interfere with our life lessons
  • Spy on our neighbours
  • Hurt/harm others
  • Manipulate the free will of ourselves or others
  • Force us to work in their interest
  • Function
  • Energy


Giving the angels permission to help

Consider the point about manipulating free will, what does this mean? 

Imagine you create your first garden and your very proud of your efforts. If your new neighbour was a fantastic gardener, and came round to your house and started moving plants about without your permission, you would quite rightly get cross. Why are they messing about with your things?

Let’s look at the above example again. With your new garden you have experienced some difficulties, and you pop around to your neighbours house to ask for advice. Your neighbours offers you a few suggestions, giving you the opportunity to follow their advice or not. It would be your choice, your own free will. 

If we use the same rule with angels, you can see that we need to invite the angels to work with us. As humans we have the divine right to free will and freedom of choice, and as long as you don’t try to manipulate the free will of others (or break any laws) then most things will be OK.

How do I give this permission?

Simply ask out loud for help or support with individual things, or ask for help at the beginning of each day.

You could write down a request, call on God directly in the form of a prayer, or perform some sort of ritual.

You could also indicate your permission by wearing an angel pin, carrying an angel coin or a worry stone – a pebble or crystal into which you project your worries. Or by placing angel figurines in your home, car and place of work.

EXERCISE

Ask the angels to help you…

How would you like to indicate your permission to the angels?

Do you want to read or say specific words to your guardian angels?

This is, perhaps, one of the most direct ways of giving permission.

  1. Choose your words carefully and write them down. Remember to say thank you after your request. Here are some examples of the things you might like to say:
  • Angels, I love my collection of white feathers – please bring more signs that you are close. Thank you in love.
  • Angels, I love it when I feel you around me and it makes me flutter with excitement, but I felt frightened when I heard a noise in the kitchen last night, so I would that you don’t indicate your presence in that way. Thank you in love.
  • Angels, I really enjoyed the dream with an angel message last week and am happy for this sort of communication in the future. Thank you in love.
  • Angels, I am nervous about feeling a physical touch and would prefer that we explore other ways of communicating with each other. Thank you in love.

   2.   Do you have other ideas of your own for giving permission? Are there things you         want to do,say or even wear?     

  • Make notes of these too and then date your experiences. If you wish, read out your request to the angels now.

As with all exercises, write up your final requests in a notebook – leaving space to add others at a later date.

How do people see angels? Do you want to know an angel secret?


Many people see angels as human-type figures with wings, and others see twinkling lights or bands of rainbow-coloured lights.

Some people have been known to have seen angels the size of ‘fairies’, others believe them to be the size of ‘giants’. People see these magnificent beings with their hands through the roof of the house and their feet through the floor. Traditional reports of angels include beings in fire and grotesque figures with hundreds of eyes.

Angels don’t mind how we ‘imagine’ them. They are comfortable and happy with our images and understand them to be representations of themselves. Angels have no egos and have no wish to be worshipped as gods. As humans I think it is important for us to have some images in our mind – our own personal representation of the angels and how they look to us. If you think about it right now, what is an angel to you?

Angel secret

It is the angels’ greatest wish that they comfort you and bring you joy. If you feel the angels close to you, remember to say thank you and acknowledge that you are aware of them. If you’re happy with the way that they appear to you (by bringing you a feather or touching your cheek or shoulder), let the angels know you are happy with this approach and they will use this method on other occasions.

Likewise, if you feel fear at the way they approach you, let them know so they can adjust their behaviour accordingly.

Talk to your angels!

See your angel meditation

Read through the meditation a few times to familiarise yourself with it, then go ahead. Don’t worry if you don’t get it exactly.

  • Sit in a quiet room and close your eyes. Take three deep, cleansing breaths by breathing in through your nose and blowing the breath out through your mouth. Then breathe nice and normally. Feel yourself becoming more relaxed.
  • Imagine you are in a beautiful garden. This garden is a safe and happy place, full of deep peace and love. You are comfortable here.
  • Spend a few moments creating the perfect garden around you. What can you see? Are there flowers? Can you see trees in your vision? Water? Birds?
  • Find a place to sit in your garden and wait for the angel to approach you. Up ahead of you an angel is beginning to form. Look carefully at it. Is the angel emerging from light or a doorway of some sort? Do they appear in colour? Do they appear with nothing? Can you see their feet? Look around and see if there are colours or shapes around the angel. Are they carrying anything? Is any other symbolism attached to the figure that you see before you?
  • Then the angel sends love towards you. Feel this unconditional love. Spend a few moments enjoying this wonderful energy. When you are ready, the angel will begin to pull back again. Then in your own time, open your eyes and bring yourself gently back into the room. Recall where you are in the here and now and ‘be’ sitting back in your chair.
  • Make as many notes as you can remember. What did the angel look like? What did the angel feel like? Remember, the purpose of the exercise is to ‘see’ the angel.
  • Next take a pencil and make some sketches of what you can remember. Don’t worry about your drawing skills, just draw. If you have coloured pencils, use these to make any impressions you might have. When you are finished, date your work and save it.
