Ask the angels to help you find a job
When it is ok to call on your Guardian Angel? Many people don’t like to ask for help as they feel that their problem is too trivial,but angels are, of course, always more than willing to help at all times.
So if like many in today’s tough economic climate you are finding it hard to find a new job then don’t hesitate to ask for a bit of angelic help.
But you do need to be alert to their suggestions which are often sent to you often in the most unusual of ways.
- Before the interview, send a silent message to the angels to ask them to bring you confidence and calm. They can assist you with everything, from what clothes to wear to preparing the right questions.
- If you’ve got as far as the interview, you know that you’re qualfied to be there, and it often boils down to how you perform on the day. The angels can help you with this by boosting your confidence. Ask your guardian angel – and any other relevant angels to help you shine and be at your very best! Be assured that your angels will be right there with you. Gadiel is ideal as he is an angel who can help you maintain a positive outlook, transform your life and release limiting beliefs. And Miniel who is the angel of love, well known in magical circles can also be invoked to help you find a new job or even a brand new career. Miniel will help you radiate positivity and show the true beauty of your spirit.
- And as always, remember to thank the angels for their help.

Zadkiel stands for freedom, happiness, justice, mercy and freedom of the soul.

How To Contact Your Guardian Angel
Robert Graham, well-known for his interest, and research into angels, suggests that we all have guardian angels that are willing to communicate with us, but that most of the time we are just too busy to listen. If we are attentive, he says, and are willing to remain open to this communication, we can receive subtle messages that can help us in our daily lives.
“If you want a clear and concise message from your angel,” Graham says, “you must ask a direct question. Your angel will always answer your questions. You must ask your question out loud. Clear, concise questions will get you clear, concise answers. Answers will always be tangible and explicit, something you can put your hands on. The answers I’ve gotten I could pick up and examine. Asking a frivolous question will get you a silly answer. The universe will match your level of sincerity.”
Angels are always willing to help us, according to Doreen Virtue, who is considered an authority on angels, but we have to be willing to accept the assistance since we have free will. “To ask for angelic assistance, you needn’t conduct a formal invocation ceremony,” Virtue says. The methods she suggests are likely to be much more familiar and comfortable to most people, including:
- writing a letter to your guardian angel – spelling out your problem and your need
- visualizing – “see” protective angels around you in your mind’s eye
- call them mentally – think your plea to the angels
- speak aloud – state your case verbally
She also suggests yet another method: meditation. “Make yourself comfortable, sitting or lying down. Be aware of your breathing… Let your body become limp and relaxed. Empty your mind; create space, just as though the whole of the universe was there, inside you. Now just be. No doing. Only being. Communicate to your angel that you wish to connect with her/him. Wait in peace. Be aware of what happens. It may not seem much at first. Be patient. Subtle changes will occur. You may see light, colors or form. You may be aware of a presence. You may feel tingling sensations. You may feel emotion. You will feel love.”
You’ll find even more suggestions for making contact with your guardian angel at “5 Hot Tips for Tuning into Angels,” which details how you can ask or invoke, use stillness for clear reception, use “heart sensing,” pay them by sending them love, and maintain harmony in your aura and home environment.
Is all this just superstitious folly? Is the idea of guardian angels just a human invention designed to help people cope with difficult problems? Or are they real beings? The matter cannot be proved or disproved definitively. Perhaps only your own faith or experience can determine their reality for you.

Jennifer, an experienced nurse in Connecticut, in the USA , believes that as she was nursing a dying patient that angels came to help him on his journey to the next life.
Jennifer writes: I’m a nurse, and primarily work private duty, which means I get hired by families through a nurses registry to care for their family member or loved one. I care for patients 95 percent of the time in their homes. Many cases are hospice cases, and I go in knowing that my job is to keep my patient comfortable and their family at ease, knowing everything is okay.
I was on a case in June in Redding, Connecticut. I was caring for a man who was 91 and dying. I was lucky enough to spend a day with him before he started his path to heaven. His path was hard, for him and his family. When people are “comfort measures only,” they usually have stopped eating and drinking, and receive only meds like morphine and Ativan to keep them comfortable. Around the 8th day of my patients transition, I was mentally and physically tired. I work the 12-hour overnight shift, and spent plenty of time alone with my patient, counting his respirations, waiting for his last breath, letting him know it was okay to let go.
Around 10:30 p.m., the family were all asleep, my patient in his hospital bed, his wife in hers, and me at his side. There was a mirror on the wall across from the bed, and I saw what seemed to be an image, a face. I looked harder since the room was dark, with only a faint light coming from the bathroom. The image became more and more clear. I looked behind me, around me, and nothing was there that could be reflecting the image in the mirror. Then, what I can only describe as a smoke, or mist, began to flow from the mirror.
At this point I’m frozen, unable to take my eyes away. within this mist, I start to see what I can only describe as pockets of energy, some just round, others actually taking shapes of people. As these entered the room, they scattered throughout the home, and tiny little flashes of white and gold light flickered when these energies came close to each other.
I was so confused and convinced my mind was playing tricks that I walked out onto the patio to get some air. Once outside, I slowly took some deep breaths and tried to shake it off, telling myself I was dreaming. As I turned around, I saw the flickering of lights still going strong in the house. This went on all night, until the family started to wake. I was so nervous to say anything, especially to the nurse coming to relieve me. We had worked together many times before, and I was sure she would think I had gone crazy if I told her what I saw.
I finally decided I would tell her, and told her of my story soon after she arrived. Her eyes filled up with tears, and she told me of a prayer she had prayed all day for our patient. At the end of each prayer she would add, “…please send the angels” for him. “They answered my prayer!” she rejoiced! I gently grabbed her arms, and cried, “Why didn’t you warn me?”
It was then that I realized I had seen angels that night. My life has been truly blessed by this experience, and since then have seen angels with two more patients. I was always skeptical when I heard other nurses tell of similar things that experienced. I know now wholeheartedly that it was real. I will never doubt again. If I never see angels again, I will never forget when I did.

7 Signs That Angels Are Around You
Angels exist on a different vibrational frequency to humans, and most of us are therefore unable to see them but we can often feel their presence around us.
Angels have a way of making their presence known and it’s not necessary to be deeply religious or to have a strong spiritual belief to sense the presence of an angel.
Below are seven signs that may indicate an angel is close by:
The temperature in the room may change. You may feel a sudden rush of warm air or a warm glow surrounding you. You may also get goose bumps or tingling at the back of your neck or head.
An intriguing fragrance may appear out of nowhere. It may be an unusual aroma that you have never smelt before, and you will probably not be able to identify it.
Different-coloured lights may appear from nowhere. You may see shafts of light streaming down or shooting across the room or you may catch glimpses or sparks of light or notice shadows. Don’t be afraid, you will not see an angel appearing until you are ready to, and angels of course have no desire to harm you.
You may hear angelic voices trying to communicate to you. If the voice is merely a whisper or is muffled, send a mental message for the angel to speak louder. Do not assume that the angelic voice you are hearing is a product of your imagination.
White feathers may suddenly appear in the most unlikely and unexpected of places. This is a sure sign that the angels are with you and are ready to help you achieve your goals in life.
Angels may appear to you in your dream state with a solution to a particular problem. By the morning, you will feel more positive and clearer about which direction to take.
You may feel as if there is someone in the room with you. As if someone has just brushed past you or you may experience the sensation that a presence is standing behind you perhaps placing a gentle hand on your shoulders.
Often the angels will make their presence very obvious. A common experience is when you are in a bookshop or a library perhaps unconsciously looking for guidance and suddenly a book will fly off a shelf and drop at your feet.
This is angels at work, trust in them and you will receive more signs.
They are here to help us on life’s path.

From the US comes the story of a mother who believes her desperately sick son was cured by an angel.
In 1998, Luke was diagnosed with bone cancer at the age of eight years old. As sometimes happens, he came down with an infection, which meant he had to go to the hospital. He was there for about two weeks, and that’s when something remarkable happened.
One evening, Luke’s mother was sitting at his bedside quietly praying as he slept. A nurse came into the room to check Luke’s temperature, but his mother noted something rather peculiar about her. The nurse was wearing an old-fashioned uniform of the type that would have been common 30 years previously, in the 1960s. The nurse noticed that Luke’s mother had a Bible by the side of his bed. She said that she was a Christian, too, and said she would pray for Luke’s healing. Luke’s family had never seen this odd nurse before nor again in Luke’s remaining time in the hospital.
“I came out of the hospital fully healed of my infection,” says Luke, who is now 19. More remarkable, he is completely free of cancer. “My mum believes this nurse could have been a guardian angel coming down to give my mum some hope,” Luke says. “If she wasn’t an angel, why would she be wearing 1960s old-fashioned nurse clothing?”

Marie, from Newcastle sends this touching tale of an angelic encounter she experienced when she was a young nursing student.
When I was a student nurse back in the early 1980s, I was responsible for taking care of a middle-aged lady who was dying of leukaemia.
She was a lonely soul as her daughters , and her husband rarely visited her (he already had a new woman in his life). One evening, after making my patient comfortable, I glanced out of the window and saw a figure in the gardens outside. As I tried to look closely, the figure seemed to fade out, becoming unfocused. I put it down to tiredness and dismissed the whole episode.
As time progressed, and my patient declined toward her end, the figure appeared more and more regularly. I told some colleagues about it and they laughed, saying that I had an over-active imagination. Each day, I would look through the window and if the figure was there, and I would wave a greeting.
One day, arriving on the ward, I went to my patient only to find the bed empty. My lady friend had died in the night and I worried that she was frightened and experienced it alone. Looking through the same window in days to follow, I never did see that figure again. I can take comfort that this strange being was probably my patient’s guardian angel who waited to escort her away from this life to a place of peace and happiness. I certainly hope so!

Pushed to Safety by an Angel
From California in the US, comes the true story of one young mother’s encounter with what she considers an angelic helper when her car broke down on a dark, deserted road leaving her stranded with two young children and no way of getting help.
Back in 1980, Deb was a single mother with two infants in San Bernardino County, California, and occasionally she needed reliable babysitters. Fortunately, her parents lived only about 30 miles away in Alta Loma. Deb would usually drop off the children at her parents’ house, go do what she needed to do, then pick them up in the evening.
On this night, Deb had retrieved her babies from her parents’ place and was heading home. It was relatively late, about 11:30 p.m., and Deb was driving her “old clunker”. Among the car’s many deficiencies, the gas gauge was broken, requiring her to guess when the old thing needed fuel. Occasionally, her guessing was off.
“Halfway home, the car started to putter,” Deb remembers, “and I realized I was on empty. I pulled off the first offramp I could, and it just happened to be one that was slightly uphill. Almost at the top of the exit, my car died and there was absolutely nothing around except empty fields and distant lights at a truck stop about a quarter of a mile down the road. There were no other cars around me. It was pitch dark, other than my headlights. I remember I could hear crickets, and the babies were sound asleep in their car seats. I panicked because I couldn’t think of what to do. Walking in the middle of nowhere with a kid on each hip after midnight was not going to work, and I couldn’t – and wouldn’t! – leave them in the car.”
Remember that this was some time before mobile phones became commonplace. So with no means of communication, stuck in the dark with a dead car and two helpless, sleeping infants, Deb was feeling desperate. “I put my head on the steering wheel while saying a short and panicky prayer,” she says. “I hadn’t even finished when I heard a few taps on my window.”
When she looked up, there stood a clean-cut looking young man, who Deb estimated to be about 21 years old. He motioned for her to roll down her window. “I remember I was surprised,” Deb says, “but I wasn’t even the slightest bit afraid, even though I normally would have been terrified. He had on clean pants, a dressy shirt and had neatly trimmed hair. He smelled slightly of soap. He didn’t even ask me if I needed help. He just told me to put my car in neutral and he would push me over the slight hill down the road to the rest stop where I could get a couple dollars worth of gas – back then when it was a couple of dollars.
“I thanked him and followed his instructions. The car started moving. I steered it toward the lights of the truck stop and turned around to yell ‘thank you’ again to him. He was so nice! My car kept moving, but the young man was nowhere in sight. I mean, this area was completely remote. There was absolutely nowhere he could have gone that quickly, even if there was somewhere to go. I don’t even know where he came from to begin with.
“My car continued to roll down the road to the truck stop, and I was so grateful to be in a lit area with people around. The kids didn’t even wake up. I’ve always trusted in God to take care of us, but in relating that story many times to my children, who are now 30 and 32, they know for a fact that angels do exist and are sent to us if we just believe. I always thought it was so amazing that we were sent someone who I would trust instinctively without question. Since that incident, I’ve come to believe that we probably encounter angels all the time, and take for granted who they really are. I think they come in all shapes and sizes, young and old… and sometimes when we least expect them.”

An Angel Nun Brings Comfort to Grieving Relatives.
Chris P in America, believes an angel dressed in nun’s clothing appeared at his grandmother’s hospital bed shortly after she passed away not only bringing comfort to the grieving family but also helping grant his grandmother’s last wish.
“ My grandmother had been sick for quite awhile and it was only a matter of time before she passed away. The family was taking turns spending nights at the hospital so that she would not be alone when she died. My grandmother was a very devout Catholic who prayed for hours each day. Her last wish was that upon her passing, whomever was there in the room would say the rosary over her body.
One night, the waiting was over and my grandmother passed away in the early hours of the morning. A couple of my aunts, a few of my cousins and I were there when it happened, and remembering my grandmother’s wish we joined hands to start praying. There was not one of us who could remember how to say the rosary. We were all rather distressed as we wanted to do this for my grandmother.
Just then, a Catholic nun walked into the room and asked us if there was anything she could do. I asked the sister if she could please join our circle and lead us in saying the rosary for my grandmother. She was more than happy to help us. After the prayers were said, she blessed my grandmother and left the room. I quickly went after her as we did not have a chance to thank us for helping us grant our grandmother’s wish. The sister was nowhere to be seen.
My grandmother’s room was situated in front of the nurse’s station at the end of the hall. I asked the nurses where the sister had gone, and they looked at me strangely. They were quite certain that no one had gone into my grandmother’s room. Given the early hour of the morning, it would have been impossible for someone to enter or leave without the nurses noticing. I explained to them what she was wearing and they told me that the nuns in this hospital do wear the “traditional” habit anymore. The nun that helped us did.
After the funeral, I had gone to that specific order of nuns and explained to them what happened. I had never been a religious person and have always questioned the existence of God, but I needed to know what happened. According to the sisters, they had stopped wearing that particular type of habit about 50 years ago.
Who was that sister that helped us out? My family and the other sisters say that she was sent by God to grant my grandmother’s last wish. Could it have been an angel, a ghost? All I know is that she looked as real as you or I.

I Met An Angel On A Train
Lou Willcock’s true life story shows how her encounter with some kind of supernatural being came at just the right time in her life
“The angel appearing was an enormously powerful experience which got me through the worst of times as well as the challenges and opportunities to come”
Last December I had been up to London with my best friend Sarah. It was the week before Christmas and we’d been to see The London Community Gospel Choir perform at a little venue in Notting Hill. It had been an uplifting evening with lots of clapping, smiling faces and great music.
This was exactly what I needed; only days before I’d been diagnosed with breast cancer and was still reeling from the shock.
After the concert, Sarah and I made our way back to Paddington station and caught a late train back to Oxford.
We took our seats in what was almost an empty carriage. Within minutes of pulling out of the station, a tall, handsome, and dark stranger approached and asked if he could sit with us. As two lone females we would normally be wary of such requests but in unison we instinctively said ‘yes’.
Within seconds the stranger embarked on the most extraordinary of conversations. Without knowing anything about us, he started to tell me that I had a passion for travel (which I do) and that Sarah shared this passion – although should also follow her own dreams.
He told us that our friendship would be a lasting one and that we would always take care of one another. But most significantly, and without knowing anything of my ill health, he told us not to worry about the future and that everything would be alright.
In spite of lots of gentle probing, the stranger avoided answering any of our questions.
He said his name wasn’t important and that what he did for a living changed almost on a daily basis. He was actually waiting for instructions about what he’d be doing next.
Before long, the train began to approach Slough and the stranger stood up and asked if he could give us both a hug. Normally we wouldn’t, but we found ourselves embracing him with open arms.
As we stopped, he said goodbye and walked to the exit. Sarah and I both went to the window to wave him off but he was no where to be seen.
Somewhere between the train doors and the station platform our stranger had vanished.
We looked at one another and knew that we had just met an Angel.
And we knew everything to come would be fine,
…and that there would always be an angel with us keeping us safe from harm.

How to Meet Your Guardian Angel
HOW TO MEET YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL
Angels are all around us at all times. All we need to do is call upon them and ask for their help. They cannot intervene without being invited to do so.
Here is a guided exercise to help you become closer to your angel and allow them to help you in ways that you never thought possible.
To raise the energy in the room, light a candle and have crystals, plants or flowers around you. Spiritual books in the room also helps lift the vibrations as does beautiful music.
Before you begin your inner work put out the intention that whatever happens is for the higher good. Ask for the angels of light to come to you to protect and heal you.
TO MEET YOUR ANGEL
- Sit or lie comfortably
- Breathe slightly more deeply than usual, relaxing on the outbreath until your whole body feels calm
- Invite your guardian angel to come close. Feel its gentle wings enfold you and relax you into safety.
- Ask your guardian angel its name. If nothing comes to mind don’t worry
- Enfolded in the love and security of your guardian angel, become aware of other angels around you and much love each has for you.
- Breathe in all the love available to you. Remind yourself you deserve to be loved
- When you are ready open your eyes gently

Angels All Around Us
What is an Angel?
There are Angels of Light, of Mercy, of Death, of the North and even Hells (on motorbikes). There are Angels on horseback, (a food) Angel cake, Angel fish, Angel hair (the rutile in rutilated quartz crystal), Angelica, Angela and Angelo, Angel slides (beams of light coming down to earth through clouds) and Angelite (another crystal). In fact, the world is full of Angels!
Everyone has his or her own image of what an Angel looks like. Perhaps it’s the very first picture you ever saw of an Angel or maybe you just ‘know’ what yours looks like, whether it’s an image of Angels generally or your very own guardian Angel. For some it’s just a vague floaty apparition, for others, a very beautiful humanlike form in flowing robes with heavenly white-feathered wings. Many will hold in their minds a very detailed religious icon, perhaps based on the gloriously colourful 15th century drawings of the Qabalist scholars depicting the Tree of the Angelic World. Whilst some are huge and impressive, occasionally, they can appear in almost cartoon form and create merriment with their antics!
Christmas is a time when Angel popularity literally soars – to the tops of Christmas trees! They adorn just about everything, schoolroom walls, shops, greeting cards and even knitted Angels appear on clothing! They are everywhere. It’s a time when, collectively and consciously we acknowledge and celebrate their presence.
What we believe they, and the extremes of their capabilities actually are, varies greatly, as does what we call an Angel. Often a pretty child is referred to as angelic by a doting relative, while someone sweet-tempered or kind or courageous who has helped out, whether by doing the washing up for someone else or by saving a life, is declared an Angel too.
There is also very much a hierarchy in the angelic world although opinion seems to be varied on exactly how this is ordered:
In medieval Angelolgy, branch of theology to do with Angels, there are nine orders of spiritual beings. Listed from the highest to the lowest in rank, they are Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominations or Dominions, Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels and Angels.
Children talk to theirs all the time but sadly, by repeated denial of their existence by many adults, most children eventually lose sight of their Angel or Angels. Later in life some have good cause to remember and reconnect with their Angel and this can be a very moving, beautiful and emotional experience. Others have retained their Angel from childhood and connect regularly and freely with them – it’s all as natural as breathing. However, many people either keep quiet about this for fear of being accused of being ‘away with the fairies’ (literally!) or it simply doesn’t occur to them to mention it as they believe that we are all in touch with them!
How do we know they are there?
Angels can let us know that they’re around in many ways. Some people say that they hear Angelic sounds totally beyond human description and so beautiful that the sound can almost be seen hanging like a delicate filigree in their inner vision. Others have a feeling of sudden warmth or comfort, or, in times of sadness or grief, a gentle cloak of feathered wings wrapping softly around them. Sometimes Angel energy may feel entirely different – like a sudden rush of air created by the passing by of an ‘Angel on a mission’, at the speed of light. This is often noticed at times of impending disaster. At other times, simply an inexplicable presence is felt.
What are they here to do?
Angels are here to watch over us, to heal and bring peace and these are the ones that most people have their experiences with. However, they also look after the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms. Trees especially have specific Angels that stay with them. Perhaps people who regularly communicate with trees will have encountered them?!
Sometimes Archangels appear and these indicate different things. Of these, Gabriel denotes change, and after sight of him we may experience shifts in our lives, either sudden ones or gentle ones. Michael brings sunshine and encouragement for the timid, allowing personal growth.
Angels are messengers. Sometimes their messages are too subtle for us but whatever it is, and in whatever form it comes in, it will become louder and stronger until we listen!
They bring messages in all sorts of odd ways! If you’re not listening they will make you aware of everyday things to convey that message. A person driving along, wrestling with a problem of what to do for the best in a tricky situation, or where there’s an important decision to be made may find themselves intensely aware of a road sign that seems to yell at them – STAY IN LANE! or KEEP YOUR DISTANCE! It sometimes really is one big clue!
Library Angels use books to get a message across. They do this either by guiding your hand to a certain title, or leading you to open the book at a seemingly random page where something that is useful or enlightening literally jumps out at you, perhaps giving you insight into a nagging problem or a new suggestion which may alter the path of your life! You may have experienced this!
Encounters of the angelic kind!
There have millions of sightings of these heavenly beings since time began. Many people are convinced of having had experiences. Angels of all kinds appear in the vicinity of disaster and troubles, in healing rooms and places of worship, and in quite ordinary places such as shops, cafes and streets. There are numerous reports of Angels at near death experiences and other times of trouble or seemingly hopeless situations. They help by intervention, prevention, rescue, comfort and healing. Sometimes, at the scene of an accident, they are there to return a person’s spirit to their body, if it’s not yet their time, or to convey them elsewhere if it is. Angels always respond swiftly to a cry from the heart for help, whether that cry is given consciously or unconsciously spoken or silent. Time and space no object.
Guardian Angels are the Angels about whom most curiosity is felt. They intercept at many junctures in our lives and help wherever they can to make our lives run smoothly. Sometimes this is by inspiring a thought to spur us into action, at others it is to lend us super-human strength, such as in the case of a woman being able to lift a car long enough to free her trapped child. Or we hear of a runaway truck, with an unconscious driver at the wheel, inexplicably swerving sharply at the last moment to avoid a bus stop queue of people. In fact, there are many instances, which are often put down to luck, coincidence or even a miracle, but which have the touch of a hand of light behind it.
At other times Angels must stand back, whilst giving loving support only, as we work things out for ourselves – these are the times when we feel alone, the dark before dawn.
Are they really Angels?
There is a theory that there are no Angels and that people are merely connecting with their Higher Self or that they are symbols produced by the psyche to illustrate the subconscious workings of the mind. Or are they are Immortal Spiritual Beings, attendant upon God, or Spirit Beings of the Native American or Chinese variety? One eight-year-old girl calls them The Light People. Yet another possible explanation is that the light, which is seen and interpreted as angelic presence is pure energy, generated by one’s own intense emotion at a time of trauma, and transmitted as light.
Another interpretation is that the appearance of an Angel at a scene of disaster is the thought projection of a person spontaneously (or not spontaneously – time and space, does it exist?) having a vision of that disaster. Their involvement creates a projection of sympathetic thought, which manifests as the Angel. This in turn reassures the person that they are not alone and brings some comfort, even if the situation is hopeless and death is inevitable (Angel of Death?). Or even better, the Angel is able to bring about a miraculous rescue. Who really knows? We could talk about it forever and never really know the answer
But if we are willing to listen and open up to the Angelic Ones, we can receive wisdom, love, compassion and understanding as well as success, inspirational creativity and abundance. If, from time to time, we wonder why things are no longer going well (job, relationship, the car!) perhaps we need to remind ourselves to reconnect with our Angel and to readjust the mirrors of our minds to reflect onto others the unconditional love they send to us.
Connect with your Angel
If you’d like to connect with your Angel, try this simple meditation.
Make yourself comfortable, sitting or lying down. Be aware of your breathing; slow it down, lengthening each outbreath. Let your body become limp and relaxed Empty your mind; create space, just as though the whole of the universe was there, inside you. Now just be. No doing. Only being. Communicate to your Angel that you wish to connect with her/him. Wait in peace. Be aware of what happens. It may not seem much at first. Be patient. Subtle changes will occur. You may see light, colours or form. You may be aware of a presence. You may feel tingling sensations. You may feel emotion. You will feel love. Any or all or none of these is perfectly fine. Your connection is personal. When you feel you have connected, Just bask in whatever you experience. When you are ready, thank your Angel for her/his presence, (if you didn’t connect this time, that’s ok – practise some more!) and bring you awareness back to where you are, take a deep breath and, if you’ve closed them, open your eyes. Feel wonderful and look forward to more connections!

Ask An Angel
Many people have a strong belief in angels, and reports of these heavenly beings are to be found across all cultures and religions.
Indeed history is peppered with sightings of angels usually in response to some great need by man. During the First World War, soldiers afraid for their lives before great battles reported sightings of angels. The most famous sighting was in August 1914, at Mons, in Belgium, when the British Army was involved in a desperate clash with overwhelming numbers of German troops. It was reported that an angelic army came to their aid and brought hope and comfort to the men so that they were able to successfully defeat their enemy.
And how many times have you heard stories of “dramatic rescues,” or “near miss death incidents,” when the person surviving the danger was reported as saying that they felt that “someone” was watching over them and keeping them safe”?
SO HOW CAN I ASK AN ANGEL FOR HELP?
