Angels Are Throughout History and Every Religion

St. Francis De Sales (1567-1622), French churchman and devotional writer wrote,

"Make friends with the angels, who though invisible are always with you...Often invoke them, constantly praise them, and make good use of their help and assistance in all your temporal and spiritual affairs."

Throughout history and in almost every religion there is mention of Angels, Archangels, or some type of angelic being(s) imparting wisdom, great news, spiritual protection or guidance to everyone from high kings and queens to lowly farm hands and fishermen, from good news to catastrophic, and from both women and men of all ages. Angels hold no prejudice, nor anything but God's love, and vibrate at frequencies much higher than most physical forms we are used to seeing. But whether you see them or not, or even whether you choose to believe in them or not, believe me; the angels are most certainly there...surrounding you and protecting you at all times.

Some believe that each soul is granted one angel spirit to protect and guide them throughout their entire lives. Others believe there are a host of angels suited for this purpose changing when the times are needed. Other still believe that those angels whom protect and guide you are your great ancestors helping you on your spiritual paths. Whatever the case may be, and whatever you believe, just know that you have loving spirits around you whenever you need them, and even when you aren't noticing, they are there loving you.


How To Connect With Angels

Connecting with your angels or angelic guides isn't as hard as you might think. No special chants or religious rites are needed. It's really pretty simple if you go into it with an open heart and mind. Angels are always happy that you want to connect with them. They love when you are acknowledging their presence and are giving them thanks for all they do. They only want what is best for you, for your highest good and the continuation of the growth of your spiritual self to become what you are meant to be.

First thing to do is to make time for your angels. Just setting aside time for the purpose of this connection is a wonderful thing to do. Take a few minutes out of each day to connect, commune or just thank your angels for being there. Don't worry if nothing happens at first, you're already doing the most important part and that is acknowledging that they are there.

When you want or need help from your angels, all you have to do is simply ask. Nothing you do, say, think or feel can ever make your angels leave your side.

Find a quite space and take some long cleansing breaths; in through your nose and out through your mouth. Don't let the mind clatter distract your meditation. Notice the thoughts that come, but don't focus on them, just let them float on by without any judgment or without putting any other thoughts or energy into them.

Now imagine that you are now calling on your angel (s) and/ or spirit guides, and sense a brilliant angel/energy being of love surrounding you. Imagine a golden/white light enveloping your entire being. Once your are in this quiet sacred space ask your angel any question you wish. Like "What is your name?" or "What do you want me to learn today?"

Example Of Request Or Prayer To Connect With Your Angels or Angelic Guides

Angels are there to help you any way they can, and also they can even help you repair damaged areas in your aura. (Take note: When first you attempt to call on your angels or spirit guides, be sure to state that you are only inviting into your sacred space those lights or spirits who come with the purest form of unconditional love and offer advice in a loving manner.)

Here is an example of a prayer you might request from your angels or angelic guides,

"With a light heart and pure mind I offer this prayer to my guardians and guides, the archangels and spirits of light who watch over and guide me. Your presence is requested in this sacred space. I ask for * *(powerful healing, joyful love, renewal or almighty protection * your choice) I ask only for profound truth and guidance. I ask for God's pure love and light to be with us and all those we love and cherish. Thank you."

Be sure to always thank your angel (s) for being there and for answering any questions you might have. Also, look for answers in everything you see, hear, feel that day or for the next few days, these may be signs just for you. Maybe a song, or a butterfly or a beam of light on an unexpected object, a feather, or a dream; any of these could be signs, just stay open to receive any guidance or signs which could come in many different forms. You will know that you have heard from your angel when you are receiving loving and repetitive messages.

Don't expect to receive direct or explicit answers to solve all your problems and issues; that is not how the guides and angels work. Your angels want to assist you in growing and because of that will often bring you counsel, guidance or advice in ways to help you make the changes or shifts in yourself that will bring about the healing, or solutions you are looking for. Also, don't expect to receive future predictions or messages from deceased loved ones (although these may come through on occasion).

"Angels and Guardian Angels have a way of letting us know exactly that
which is most beneficial for us at any given time...no more no less ..perfect angelic guidance - always -- eternally."

"It is impossible to see the Angel unless you first have a notion of it." -James Hillman

I totally believe you, even for the fact that I haven't invoke my guiding angel.

But am actually working on it because I don't no what to do in other to invoke it but I truly know that the do exist

Hi! I'm taking a huge risk in telling you this. I have not received very many positive responses or been believed at all. But here goes. I have been physically touched by my angel on several occasions.. She has saved my life, probably more than once. I feel her physical presence and the emptiness she leaves when she's away - which fortunately is seldom. The other day I was sitting on the edge of the bed, half asleep. I do this a lot, sometimes sleeping sitting up all night long. I've been doing this for 15 years, and I don't know why. I guess she thought I was about to fall off the bed because all at once I felt her poke me three times on the hand. I startled fully awake, but she had gone invisible. That wasn't the only time she touched me. The first time, I was asleep when someone poked me on the arm. I woke halfway up, and she poked me again. This time she wasn't completely invisible, but appeared as a warm glow, about 5' tall, in the corner of my bedroom. Her glow lit up the room, but only for me. I had awoken my ex husband, who had been sleeping on the other side of me, but he saw only complete darkness. Much, much more happened that night, but I don't think you would believe me. She saved my life, and my ex husband's, that night. Her name is Anneliese. I didn't make it up. She found a unique way to tell me. Right now I'm searching for a better way for us to communicate. She sends me a barrage of numbers, sometimes one after the other for minutes at a time, and I get feathers virtually every time I go outside. But I'm finding this frustrating, and I think she does too. She has directed me to study numerology, & I want to learn reiki. Hopefully this will open the door for our communication I know that we have a mission together. I see ghosts (and other things), and I have just been given the gift of helping them to cross over. This will be a strange addition to my future psychotherapy practice, but it makes sense when you look at the totality of my life. I have experienced a great deal of PTSD, primarily associated with sexually related trauma. I have been able to bring these experiences to my practice, with great benefit to my patients. So my life with the paranormal just adds to my abilities. So I've thrown a lot at you, I know, and I expect most of you won't believe me. Please don't tell me I'm crazy, delusional, evil, sick, or lying. I've heard it all before. If you don't believe me, please just say nothing at all, OK? God bless you all!

thank you so much for sharing your story!!! :)

Candice Collins (author) from WestCoast Florida on July 27, 2012:

thanks for sharing that Heather... beautiful story :)

Heather on July 15, 2012:

While writing a screenplay for a motion picture about our purpose in life, and why no one should commit suicide, I was told to write down that not only does each of us have a guardian angel, we each have more than thirty of them -- an entire football team of protectors and guides.

I was shown an image of a dejected, suicidal person seated what they think is alone in an empty dark room... and then the air above that person lit up with an entire Sistine Chapel ceiling of winged beings all gazing sorrowfully down at them, discussing how to reach them, and what to do.

I never forgot that, and I am sharing it here.

Candice Collins (author) from WestCoast Florida on July 08, 2011:

:) ty for all your comments...have an angelic day!

Katie McMurray from Ohio on July 28, 2010:

I sure could use a guardian angel thanks for a guide to connecting with your Angels.

I'm coping this and taking it with me as I know gratitude is vital and have not thought of thanking my angels, maybe now they will feel needed and appreciated and reveal themselves more and more. Blessings

"With a light heart and pure mind I offer this prayer to my guardians and guides, the archangels and spirits of light who watch over and guide me. Your presence is requested in this sacred space. I ask for * *(powerful healing, joyful love, renewal or almighty protection * your choice) I ask only for profound truth and guidance. I ask for God's pure love and light to be with us and all those we love and cherish. Thank you."

billyaustindillon on July 16, 2010:

Beautiful images and I agree the prayer is wonderful also.

Candice Collins (author) from WestCoast Florida on July 16, 2010:

thanks for the wonderful comment!

Audrey Hunt from Pahrump NV on July 10, 2010:

Absolutely beautful hub. Enjoyed the pictures so very much. Iknow that I have a guardian angel - in fact I have more than one. You make an important point in your hub - to thank your angel. The example of the prayer you give is eye opening. How strange that I have not thought to do this. Thanks to you, I will now.
