Angels are our guardians and guides. They are divine spiritual beings of love and light that work with humanity to help us in this lifetime. Guardian angels are unique to each person; we each have our own team. For some people this may be one angel, for others, it may be many, and you can always ask for more if you feel the need. The Angels respect your free will and won’t directly interfere in your life unless asked, or if your life is in danger before your time.
When you ask for guidance, your angels will communicate through your intuitive feelings and a variety of other ways. When you are uncertain about a decision, you can always ask them for a sign to confirm your feelings. Signs from the angels help us feel a direct connection, enhancing our intuition and giving us the confidence to move forward.
Aside from Guardian Angels, there are also Archangels who help humanity. The Archangels are a higher elevation of energy then our Guardian Angels (arch means above) and there are hundreds of them; each working with a particular purpose to provide guidance and help for us. The Archangels also respect our free will and will not interfere in our lives directly unless we ask, but they definitely give us nudges for our highest good and in the direction of our purpose.
Guardian Angels and Archangels work with our spirit guides to form what I like to call our “Celestial Guidance Team”. Together, this team can give each of us protection, healing, guidance, inspiration, opportunities, support, comfort and just about whatever else we may need. When asked, they conspire on our behalf for our highest good.
While there is no formal training or technique needed to ask your angels for help, there are some specific ways you can inquire that immediately align you with a manifesting mindset and focus; stating clearly WHAT you want help with, and leaving the door open for HOW it will come to you.
When you ask for help in this manner, you leave room for endless possibilities and avoid limiting language; allowing the angels to work their brand of magic to bring you what you need to create your intentions.
Here are 5 ways to call on your Angels for help (and which ones to ask):
1. I AM READY INTENTION
Feeling absolutely ready to finally have what you want? The “I am ready” statement is a powerful trio of magical manifesting words! You can use this statement to ask your angels for help with just about anything, but it is especially useful when you are trying to create positive changes in your life. Here’s a sample phrase you can customize to meet your needs:
“Guardian Angels and Archangels (you can name the ones you want for help, I will cover which ones help with what later in this article), I am ready to create/embrace ______________________ for my highest good. Please help me bring this to life and I will follow your guidance. Thank you”
Be sure to keep your words positive and focus on what you want (not how you want to receive it). You can write or say any of these intentions once or twice, but do not nag (repeated invoking demonstrates doubt and a lack of faith which attracts negative energy). After you make your request for help, pay attention to ideas or opportunities that come to you and follow them; your angels be giving you information intuitively to help you create what you desire.
2. PEOPLE AND RESOURCES REQUEST
We often need the help of others to create our dreams, especially if related to a business and/or our Life Purpose. The Angels are incredibly valuable resources to help us with these endeavors; part of their purpose is to guide and support us in serving ours. Asking directly for the help we need, once we know what we want, is an amazing way to quickly generate anything from new clients to new ideas and new opportunities. Here’s a sample phrase you can customize to meet your needs:
“Guardian Angels and Archangel Michael (if related to your Life Purpose), please bring me the people and resources I need to create _______________________. Please put me on the minds of anyone who can help me in any way and have them contact me for service. Thank you.”
3. IDEAS AND INSPIRATION REQUEST
Feeling lost and/or uninspired? You can specifically ask the Angels to reignite your brain and imagination so you can get clarity and take action! This intention is very useful when you feel a bit unsure about what you actually want and/or what your Life Purpose is. It is also great for creative endeavors like writing or art. Here’s a sample phrase you can customize to meet your needs:
“Guardian Angels and Archangels (you can name the ones you want for help), please give me ideas and inspiration to help me (decide, know, or create) ________________, so that I know the next steps to take. Thank you”
I use this intention frequently for writing blogs and articles. Part of my purpose is writing and I have my own blog, plus I am a freelancer and contributor for several others. I also write websites for entrepreneurs, often for businesses I know nothing about. I usually need ideas that will best suit varying audiences, and the Angels always come through to help inspire me!
