This is an excerpt from my book The Complete Encyclopedia of Angels:
Guardian angels are spiritual beings created expressly to guide and direct spirits incarnated into the physical realm. They work with people, animals, plants and all aspects of the earth and the universe. Guardian angels protect you and most importantly they will guide you and bring you messages from Spirit. Scriptures say angels were created by God because their existence brought him joy. Perhaps it pleases God to have heavenly beings assisting all of his creations.
The idea of guardian angels is found in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. You are born with a least one guardian angel who watches over you your entire life. From time to time other guardian angels will come to your assistance you when you have a particular want or need. Your angel will encourage you to make choices which will create joy and deepen your spiritual connection. They can’t take actions for you or stop you from hurting yourself, but they can gently remind you of your perfection. Their greatest pleasure comes from seeing you succeed in life.
If you begin receiving advice about the stock market or other speculative ventures, chances are that your mind is pretending to be an angel!
Call upon your guardian angel often. Express your desire to know your angel. Open your mind and heart and allow yourself to develop a life-long relationship with your angel. Close your eyes and try visualizing your guardian angel.You can ask the angel’s name if you’d like. It might take a while until you are able to see and hear your angel, but if you practice on a regular basis it will be well worth your effort.
Your guardian angel is best at:
Filling you with hope and joy
With love and aloha,
Angels are everywhere just open your mind and your heart to the signs.
Make Angels on Your Shoulder part of your daily routine and share it with a friend!
