ANGELS - The Basics

The word ‘angel’ is derived from the ancient Greek ‘angelos’, meaning ‘messenger’. Angels act as a bridge, serving as a channel between the spiritual realm and the material, physical world. 

People perceive angels in many different ways; the most profound encounters are as physical manifestations. Fascination with angels grows daily. Ordinary, everyday people all over the world opening talk about how angels have helped them, and stories of angelic intervention are becoming more frequent.

As people become consciously aware of angels, the veil between our world and theirs becomes thinner. Angels wish for and seek contact and communication with you on a daily basis. You don’t need to be clairvoyant or psychic to experience angelic contact - just open and receptive.

Angels are among us now more than ever with increasing numbers of people reporting encounters, healing remedies, lifesaving measures an timely messages. The angels know that it is time for us to heal ourselves, our lives and our world. The angels are helping us heal the challenges and ills that keep us from living at our highest potential.

Angels are a bridge into the heavenly realms. Angels convey a world beyond our normal sight which is around us and within us all.

Angelic contact varies greatly from person to person and in many different forms. Some people see angels in human-like form complete with wings, whilst others are able to see angels with their mind’s eye. Some people see coloured swirling lights, and others encounter angels through their dreams or during meditation. Other people are able to feel angelic wings encircling and enfolding them and others encounter angels by being surrounded by a beautiful energy signature.

Angels can be perceived by any and all of the human senses. Some ways in which you may become aware of the presence of angels include:

* The atmosphere and energy of a room or area suddenly changes. You may feel surrounded by a warm glow or sensation. You may feel a rush of energy down your spine, then spread throughout your body. You may feel or sense the air around you tingling or ‘sparking’.

* The room or area suddenly fills with a beautiful fragrance or sweet perfume.

* You may experience a particular sweet taste.

* An ethereal sound or angelic music may be heard, often associated with healing.

* You are overcome with feelings of love, appreciation, gratitude and joy.

* Twinkling silver or colour lights may appear around you momentarily. This ma be in the form of sparkles or tiny flashes of bright light, shafts of brilliant dazzling light and/or spheres of colour around you.

* You may feel the sensation of angels wings gently brushing against you or enfolding you. You may even sense or feel angelic hands touching you on your shoulders or clasping your hand.

* A gentle breeze from nowhere me pick up and play with your hair.

* You may become more aware of an increase in ‘coincidences’ that occur in your life and your problems may seem to find their own solutions - sometimes in the most unexpected ways.

There are many other ways in which angels give us signs that they are present in our lives. Some of these include:

* Clouds

Angels sometimes appear in cloud formations, particularly over sacred sites or when you have asked for angelic assistance. Clouds will also sometimes appear as feathers.

* Feathers

White feathers can appear in the most unlikely of places. These are little angel signs. When one presents for you, take it as a signal from the angels that they are with you.

* Flowers

Flowers offer us the essence of spirit and bring us joy on many levels.

* Words

Words are very powerful. Often after you have asked for angelic assistance you may hear the word ‘angel’ mentioned on the TV or radio, or someone will say the word in an unlikely context. You may then also hear your ‘solution’ or words of guidance then aswell.

* Crystals

‘Angelic crystals’ are Celestine, Seraphinite and Danburite and Clear Quartz. Angels are said to be able to suddenly appear in these crystals after you have started reaching out to the angelic realm.

We all have access to angels. These powerful spiritual helpers are beings of light who have never been in a physical body, differing from spirit guides who have experienced human life on the earth plane.

When you open your heart to the angels your life can be filled with wonder, love and miraculous joy. We know that we are achieving true angelic communication when we can acknowledge that we no longer feel ‘alone’. Protection, guidance, support and nurturing are there in abundance for us and is actively flowing in our direction influencing and improving all areas of our lives.

Working with angels most often challenges our outworn patterns and belief systems, shaking us out of our comfort zones. It takes courage to open the doors to healing. At times, the most beneficial life changes can be challenging.

An infinite number of angels are available to assist us at any given time. We also have one or more ‘guardian angels’ who are with us from birth and throughout our lives. These angels offer us their wisdom, help and advice, but never interfere with our freewill.

Angels are obedient to Cosmic and/or Universal Laws. According to the Spiritual Law of Free Will, angels are unable to intervene or help us unless we specifically ask. The only exception to this rule of free-will is if we are in mortal danger of dying before our time. That is the only time angels are able to intervene un-asked.

The angels are here to help us heal from issues and challenges that are seemingly mundane, to those that seem important and urgent, or spiritually profound. There are no limits to the angel’s healing powers. They can help us heal our relationships, career concerns, finances, housing or accommodation issues and any other challenge we may face in our lives.

One of the angel’s healing tasks is to help us lift our vibrational frequency.

There is a perfect solution for every problem. The answers lie in the Higher dimensions – and often our human-self cannot access them. In order to find the solution, we have to hand the situation over to the angels, then listen to and act on the prompting of our intuition. The angels ask that we turn to them and ask for help with the smallest and largest of our problems. There is always a solution and the angels love to provide it for us in many and varied ways, whichever is most appropriate.

When we call upon angelic aid, we must do so from a place within ourselves of love, trust, humility and clarity. As long as your requests are positive and does not interfere with your own life’s plan, the angels are able to answer your call and give you appropriate, loving help and guidance.

For the angels to heal your situation, you must completely release it and let it go. This allows the angels to deal with it and heal it. We need to trust that the infinite wisdom of the Universe will come up with the best solution possible.

After releasing the problem or situation to the angels, you may be prompted to take some human steps to help resolve the situation. The instructions will come to you intuitively, either in a dream, as a voice or a ‘knowingness’. These directions are the answers to your prayers and you are to take ‘right action’, whatever that may entail, to resolve your challenging situations.

No situation is too big or too small for the angels to resolve it for you. There is no task that angels cannot help us with. Angels are completely dedicated to helping humanity spirituality as well as in practical ways.

Keeping in contact with angels helps to attune the mind and heart to your higher-self.

You can ask to be surrounded by as many angels as you like, and it is advisable to ask the angels to surround your loved ones - children, partner, family, friends and associates. You are also able to ask the angels to direct their energies and blessings towards others all over the earthplane.

You do not need a specific ritual, ceremony or invocation … you simply need to ask with sincerity and with the highest intentions in mind and heart.

The guidance you receive from angels will help you abundantly, no matter what you believe about how the Universe works or not. Whether you see angelic guidance as an opportunity to change a bad habit or negative attitude, or whether you see it as ‘repayment’ of a ‘karmic debt’ - you are going to be helped by it.

When you consciously engage angels in with heartfelt intentions, asking for their help and support, amazing things are guaranteed to happen. You will be helped in unexpected ways by unforeseen and unexpected sources.

Nothing happens without a reason. We are always given what we need. We are never given more than we can handle.

Just accept the gifts when they start to come … just say yes and accept them for what they are. It’s a matter of trusting and following guidance that you may hear most clearly as an inner voice or experience simply as a nonverbal, psychic and/or intuitive urging.

Right actions are the real agents of positive change and by always relying on our angel’s guidance to pursue whatever the next ‘right action’ maybe - and helps us to gain a deeper appreciation of the larger ‘karmic’ purpose of the paths we want and are encouraged to take.

All we ever need do is trust that guidance will come - then trust in it when it comes. We simply need to listen to the answers we receive, then take the actions that those answers imply.

Angels are wonderful healers as their essence is of pure love. Angel view s through the ‘true-self’ world, which only knows perfection.

Angels afford us a means of spiritual communication that we can access in no other way. They are messengers. Their single focus is to help us grow and thrive materially and spiritually.

To transmit their messages to us, angels will use any means or form to maximize the effectiveness of their message. They may take the form of humans, they may communicate to us through a song lyric or tune, they can send us a familiar scent, whisper suggestions, show us repeating number sequences (or Angel Numbers) or show us an image. They want to convey precisely what they know you will take notice of and understand best … in whatever form that may take. Your angel will make sure you ‘get the message’.

The angels support us and are empathic to people who feel that they are on the wrong career path. The angels know of our natural and innate talents and abilities, and wish for us to work in professions that helps others and incorporates our natural interests.

We each have a ‘life purpose’, which is like an assignment we need to fulfill during our lifetime. The ‘life purpose’ enmeshes with our natural talents and interests, and we have enough time, intelligence, creativity, money and other resources to fulfill this task completely.

Our angels tell us that there are infinite ways for a dream or vision to be made reality. When we let go of our fear-based limited expectations that our dreams have the best chance of manifesting. The angels ask us to release the human doubts that say ‘it can’t happen’ and/or ‘cannot be possible because it is illogical and/or impossible’. The angels are able to rise above human logic to an elevation where all things are possible. The angels ask us to release all fear and doubts so that they can bring about our desires, no matter how unlikely or illogical they may seem.

‘Vision’ is far wider and deeper than just a simple ‘visualizations’ exercise. We are able to connect to a clearer picture, of what you want in life, and of who you are.

‘Wisdom’ isn’t a passive state of looking ‘wisely’ upon human affairs from a distance - wisdom suggests a plan of ‘right action’ and practical insight.

‘Strength’ is the spiritual stamina to continue on your path. It is not exertive power over circumstances. Strength is the infinite energy that runs through all things and is always accessible and available to us. All you have to do is ask for guidance, trust in the response, be courageous in taking the ‘right actions’, and enjoy your journey.

The angels live for the joy of service and wish that we would ask for their assistance more often. Working with angels offers us the opportunity to develop inner-wisdom whilst strengthening self-understanding. By connecting with your inner-light you will easily be able to overcome obstacles in your day to day life. We can reinforce our angelic connection by asking the angels to assist us in achieving our goals. They help by motivating us towards our dreams and desires.

Angels have many and varied tasks to perform. ‘Messenger angels’ have the ability to show up just at the right moment to help, assist and/or save a situation. 

Some angels are ‘inspirational’, teaching us through cosmic virtues such as goodness, kindness, honesty, humility, purity, joy, beauty and blessings. 

Other angels act as ‘joy bringers’ or ‘blessing bringers’, gladdening our hearts and guiding us towards positive experiences.

  7. I cannot even begin to say that your foundation of this angelic meaning and concept couldn't had explained with everything going on around and within of myself. I feel more significant,self identified, and blessed with all these things relating to these beliefs and guidances you willingly chose to present to us. I no longer feel lost and without purpose. So thus in conclusion I would love to take this time to most sincerely appreciate, acknowledge, and thank infinitely to Joanne, Melissa and of their angels. Thank you so dearly much.

  8. Hi Joanne, all this is pretty new to me, and i fell on this page yeasterday because i wanted to understand why i kept seeing 420(it was annoying) until i read this. It has given me a different understanding but aslo has strengthen my spiritual beliefs. But how did you get all this info. I figure its the angels that have said what they mean? Must admit, i normally as Jesus, boudha ,god to help me, but im spiritual by choice, because i know its the rigth way to believe... But if i still pray to him(god,Jesus, boudha) doe's that still count as getting help? Or i must ask a specific angel name to help me or my situation. Thanks for clarifying. You have won my attention, and my open mind to this new chapter to add into my spiritual journey.

  9. Thanks for the eye opener. Joanne

  10. Awesome and insightful! Thanks so much ��

  11. So beautifull. Thank you for all that you do ! Blessingso to you !

  12. All of this is explainable by science. Yet, our understanding of the Universe's energies is still limited. Many types of intelligent species live around us as well as around the globe. We have not been that much in contact because of governments disinformation, closed-minded society and our psychic primitive abilities. It is not ''paranormal'', in fact these angels are pretty normal.
    That said, these entities see this universal love hidden within us and therefore want to make us notice it A.K.A the human nature.
    In my case, I entered in contact with them few months ago right after I've been seeing huge lot of numbers and synchronicities. As time went on, I relied upon Joanne's angels numbers blogs more and more until I began to see sparkles of light.
    My life changed completely. I could never thank them enough and I say that to you too Joanne for your amazing blogs that helped me translate these messages. I love you all!

  13. Everything i've read on here has made so much sense to me. Thank you so much Joanne.

  14. Hi Joanne, I would like to thank you for giving me a understanding of Angels as I feel my inner self and been opened in many ways at the moment. wow wow wow I've just had a FB message from my mum with a Angel message she as had for ages.
