The Bible tells us, “Beware that you don’t look down on any of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven, their angels are always in the presence of my Heavenly Father” (Matthew 18:10). This is one of the key passages in the Bible regarding guardian angels. We know from Scripture that the role of guardian angels is to guard men, institutions, cities and nations. However, we often have a distorted image of the functions of these angels. Many of us see them as beings that are good just to obtain advantages for us. Contrary to popular belief, this is not their only role. Guardian angels exist above all to help us in spiritual difficulties. God is with us through the action of the angels and they participate in our struggles to help us fulfill our calling. Life is full of struggles and dangers, both material and spiritual. Because of this, our Divine Creator has placed an angel to watch over each and every one of us. Often, we read about ways that guardian angels communicate with us, but we don’t always hear about ways that we can reach them. Here are seven dynamic ways to communicate with your guardian angel.
Identify Your Guardian Angel
Before you try to contact and communicate with your angel, make sure that you know who your angel is and what your angel’s special powers are. If you are trying to contact a specific angel, then take some time to learn a little more about that angel. After doing this, watch for signs. Pay attention to names and symbols that come up a lot. For example, if you notice the name Michael keeps coming up, then your guardian angel might be Michael. You may also choose an angel to contact based on that angel’s associations. For example, Raphael is associated with healing and protection for travelers, so you may want to contact him if you have been dealing with illness or you are planning a trip.
Walk With Your Guardian Angel
Another great way to communicate with your guardian angel is by establishing a close relationship with them. One way to do this is by including them in your daily activities. Get outside and take a walk with your angel. You can either talk as you walk, or just allow your mind to open and be receptive to what they have to say to you. Watch for signs and synchronicities of their presence as you walk such as coins, feathers, sounds or other signs.
Meditation is also a good way to connect with your guardian angel. Breathe deeply and clear your mind. Light a candle and close your eyes. Try not to think of anything, not even your guardian angel for a few minutes. Focus on keeping your breathing steady and slow. If you notice that you have started thinking about something, and then take a moment to acknowledge the thought and then focus on your breathing.
Write Letters to Your Angel
Writing letters to your guardian angel about specific situations and your feelings associated with them helps you to become clearer about that issue, circumstance or problem. The clearer you are, the more specific you can be when you ask for help. Something some people do is to create a journal and write down your hopes and desires. Once you’ve made contact with your guardian angel, start logging all your experiences. Record all the ways they have helped you, the wisdom they’ve shared with you and the thing they brought to your attention that made you laugh, as well as they beauty they shared with you throughout the day.
Talk With Your Angel
Don’t be afraid to reach out to your guardian angel. This can be very casual, but in a personal and direct way. Speak to your soul’s deepest desires just as if you are speaking to your best friend over a cup of coffee. Share with them how much you love them and appreciate their guidance. Also, you can use this time to ask them for help. Pay attention to your guardian angel’s responses to your questions. Remember, they are here for you.
Designate a Time to Contact Your Angel
You can come up with a daily or weekly time to connect with your guardian angel. To increase your chances of contacting your guardian angel, you should designate a specific time each day to mediate. Having a daily practice will give your guardian angel more opportunities to contact you. For example, you might start or end each day with five minutes of connection. You can also contact your guardian angel in times of need, but make sure that you make regular contact with your angel as well.
Pay Attention to Your Intuition
Our intuition is the inner voice of the soul and is like a muscle. The more it is worked, the stronger it will become. In fact, most of us use our intuition on a daily basis and don’t even realize it. Just like everyone has an intuition, guardian angels also have intuition. To welcome divine guidance into your life, all you have to do is ask and then stay open to the signs they offer you. Communicating with your angel can be an effective way to enhance your intuition because often, if you are open enough, your angel can send you signs to help validate your intuitive hunches.
Just as angels are largely unseen by us, so also is their work. If we knew all the times angels were at work and the things they were doing right before us, we would be amazed. God does many things through His angels including giving us protection in times of danger, and not just physical danger, but also moral and spiritual danger as well. Hopefully, these six signs show you how guardian angels are at work in your life and remind us how great and powerful God is.
