How do you begin to communicate with your own, personal group of Angels? How do you even know that they are there, and how do they respond?
Of course the argument for and against the existence of Angels will continue for as long as there are people to agree or not, but I have certainly had my fair share of experiences.
For the first thirty years of my life it had never occurred to me that Angels didn’t exist somehow, somewhere…..but nor did it ever occur to me that I would be able to communicate with and even see them. I normally don’t see them like a solid, physical person standing in front of me. Initially at least, they showed themselves to me as impressions in my mind’s eye and as glowing fields of energy around me and also around my clients.
If I remember correctly, my very first awareness of communicating with an Angel was at the verbal level. A message being sent clearly to me in response to a specific question. Again, it wasn’t like a verbal message coming from another person to me, it was like a voice speaking clearly inside my mind. (…but don’t tell anyone I just told you that, for some people that’s the definition of insanity!)
I read whatever books I could lay my hands on about Angels, Spirit Guides, Guardian Angels and how to stay connected to and be in communication with them. I was amazed that so many people already knew about these things back in the days before the huge boom in Angelic communications that we in the Mind, Body, Spirit field are so familiar with now.
Because of the advice given in these books and from the urging of my own Angels and Guides, I developed the habit of talking to them in my mind and out loud (again, another definition of insanity :-)) giving thanks to them, asking them for help, writing letters to them and sitting with a pen and notebook asking them to give me any advice they would care to pass on.
Many of these efforts would seem to lead to nought, but being the stubborn type, I decided to persist and began to notice little signs and signals that clearly stood out to me from the canvas of everyday life. White feathers would appear in the most unexpected, and sometimes impossible places. One day, while I was packing a suitcase in a mad hurry, stressed about moving to a new home, I walked out of the room for a few minutes and came back to find a white feather sitting on top of the luggage in the case! The window was closed and I know that the feather had not been there beforehand. I felt a sense of peace and knew that my Angels would help my move run smoothly.
Sometimes they would signal to me through rainbows, and not just big rainbows in the sky after a storm. If I needed reassurance or encouragement I would find that a rainbow could appear just about anywhere. On one occasion a random conversation in the supermarket queue with a complete stranger was all about rainbows and on another – when I was having a particularly bad day in a part-time job I loathed – a woman came up to pay her fare wearing a T-shirt with a rainbow printed on it.
By far the most amazing response I’ve ever had was during a very difficult time in my life. I’d been married for a couple of years and I just knew in my heart of hearts that it wasn’t what I wanted. Looking ahead at the next few months, I knew that I was going to have to deal with that awful process of hurting and upsetting my then husband, and proceeding with a divorce. He was a lovely man, but I just didn’t want to be married to him. I felt so low and rotten.
Desperate for some guidance and support, I sat down one afternoon and wrote a long letter to my Angels and Guides, pouring out all my woes and asking for help in many areas of my inner and outer life. Once completed, I wondered how to ‘send’ the letter. In the past I had buried, burned and even stamped and mailed letters to my Angels (yes, there are letters somewhere addressed ‘To My Dear Angels and Spirit Guides’) goodness knows what Australia Post does with them?
The guidance came soon enough, to go throw the letter into the ocean at the next high tide….little did I know that it was at 10.30pm!!! But out I went, into the howling cold night, my caring husband accompanying me so I didn’t have to wander around in the dark on my own. I felt awful about throwing paper into the ocean. “Isn’t that littering?” I wondered. But my guidance told me it would dissolve and it was okay this once.
After several attempts to get the letter into the waves without being swept away myself it finally disappeared and we went home to warm up. The following day was cold, wet and windy, so I wasn’t able to get outside for a walk until late afternoon. There had been no obvious response to my letter thus far and I’d forgotten about the whole thing for the time being. As I wandered up the beach I could see a big message written in the sand. When I came close enough to read it I nearly burst with excitement and amazement. It read…
“WEDNESDAY 10TH OF MAY, HOPE YOU HAD A NICE DAY, WE LOOK FORWARD TO READING YOUR LETTER”
Can you imagine how I felt when I saw that??? Manly Beach is frequently covered with love-hearts, peoples’ names and smiley faces, but long message like this? I had never seen anything like it in my life and there wasn’t another soul anywhere on the beach.
I ran home, grabbed my camera and took the photos that you see here in this post. Some of the message had been washed away by the time I returned, but I got most of it.
I felt SO blessed, and for me at least, this was a wonderful confirmation that not only are my Angels and Guides always with me, but also that they are listening and always willing to help.
