Guardian angels are heavenly beings who serve as messengers of God and our protective guides. They’re always on hand to guide us in life and can appear in many ways. People often question their presence or existence because they have no tangible proof or an angel coming to them and saying, “hey, it’s me, your personal angel!“
What many people forget is that just because we can’t see something doesn’t mean it does not exist, or that we should doubt its existence. You don’t even have to be religious to experience the presence of angels.
Below we’ll look at what a guardian angel is, if you have one, and the signs to tell they’re around.
What is a guardian angel?
Guardian angels are spiritual beings who are assigned to each of us at birth to act as our protectors, advisors, and guides. They are there to help us with problems when we need assistance, even though we can’t always see or hear their assistance. The concept of guardian angels is not unique to Christianity but can be found in other religions and cultures.
Guardian angels are not created equal. Some are assigned to protect us from particular dangers, and others are more general in their protection. Some offer advice and guidance in many aspects of our lives; others are more specialized.
How do I know if I have a guardian angel?
The best way to find out, or rather to ensure that you have a guardian angel is to keep your eyes open and notice the signs coming at you from all sides.
It could be a butterfly landing on you, a fox visiting your backyard daily, or different numbers, smells, or shapes. Other common signs include:
Angel numbers are a language that angels use to communicate with us. When you keep seeing the same number repeatedly, it is a sign that the angels are trying to get your attention or give you some important message.
Everything in the universe – your thoughts, every atom in your body, every hair on your head, and numbers is constantly vibrating. So when you understand these vibrations, interpreting your personal angel number will be easier.
Angel signs and symbols
One of the reasons that angels show us angel signs is because they want us to know they are with us. They want us to feel their presence and know they are there to guide and help us.
There are a number of ways that angels show us that they are near. Besides angel numbers, these are white feathers, random coins on the ground, a cloud in the sky in the shape of an angel, or the word angel that you hear on the radio or see on a wall. These are subtle yet beautiful signs that you’re in the company of angels.
Pay attention to your life. Look for the things that go right when they could have gone wrong. Find the places where you feel protected when you should have been vulnerable. Discover the moments when you receive helpful advice that should have been out of your depth. These things can be signs of your guardian angel’s presence in your life.
How to communicate with your guardian angel?
If you want to get in touch with your angels, you need to be in a calm environment with a calm head, and know why you want to contact them. The more often you practice this exercise, the easier it will be to connect with them.
Some people can communicate with angels as if they were talking to a friend on the phone. It is not because they are born with a special or psychic ability. It’s practice, effort, and persistence. Here’s one of the great ways to initiate a contact with them:
Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Feel the energy around you.
Imagine you’re surrounded by white light, created by your guardian angels. They are here, guiding you, protecting you, and loving you unconditionally. Feel the presence of these holy beings who are always there for you – no matter what happens in your life, they will be there to help you through it all. Feel their love, peace, and serenity envelope you. Take your time. Not everyone has a good imagination.
Speak to them. Tell them everything that’s on your mind. Talk to them as if you were talking to someone close or loved. Take a deep breath, speak slowly, and whenever needed, take a break. Speak kindly and try to focus more on what you want than what you don’t want. Describe to them your whole situation and what is bothering you. It can be the most personal things that you would never tell anyone else. Finally, express your gratitude.
Open your eyes and carry on with your day as usual. Your angels are always with you – even when you’re not consciously thinking about them – so don’t feel like you have to ‘do’ anything special to contact them. Simply stay connected with them in your mind; ask for their help and guidance as needed throughout your day; and know that they’re there whenever you need them (both when things are going well and when they’re not).
We all have a guardian angel
We all have our personal heavenly messenger who watches over and protects us in our physical realm. So, the next time you hear someone doubting angels and their existence, ask them, “what if you just don’t want to see their signs and feel their presence because you’re not open to it? “
See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. Matthew 18:10
