How to Connect with Your Angels | Written By: Nikki Novo
In my mid-twenties I reach that utterly lost point in my life where I was either going to settle for a mediocre relationship and job, start using drugs and alcohol, see a therapist, or visit a psychic. I decided to meet with a psychic (not to say I didn’t dabble in the other options, too).
While in this space, I just wanted someone to hand me a map that led to my happiness. For the first time in my life, I just wanted someone to tell me what to do to find my pot of gold.
My hope was that the psychic would tell me I was going to marry a doctor, have kids, become super rich, and live happily ever after. But she didn’t. Instead, she told me I was going to “get into the metaphysical.” “The meta, what?” I thought.
“What am I paying you for, lady,” I said to myself. She was supposed to tell me I was normal and that my life was the most magical one she’s ever seen insider her crystal ball. Instead, I heard that I was about to become a wizard of some sort. “Great, now I’ve really hit rock bottom,” I thought.
Metaphysics is just a fancy term for the philosophy of being. Those who study metaphysics are determined to make sense of it all — they’re searching for meaning. And she was right, I found myself at a crossroad. I could either keep on feeling like a victim or I could find some sort of way to take matters into my own hands. So I decided to start looking for the meaning in my life and why I things felt a bit off
Before I knew it, I found myself knee-deep into topics like Christianity, Kabbalah, Buddhism, Yoga, energy, hypnosis, and angels. I grew up Catholic, so I was blown away to find out how other people and beliefs seek to explain life. It’s all very fascinating.
Within my seeking and education, I became very involved with the topic of angels. I had no idea we had these energy beams that hang out with us all day just to keep us safe and in the light. The idea blew my mind. I found myself reading anything I could get my hands on, including every angel book written by Doreen Virtue (doesn’t she resemble Cher?!).
What Are Angels?
So, angels carry messages for us from God. In fact, the word angel means “messenger of God.” We see them in Bible performing their job often. Remember when Mary was visited by Angel Gabriel? According to the Bible, this is how Mary finds out who her son, Jesus, was destined to be. There are many other examples of these holy messengers throughout history that I’m sure you can recall.
Even today, angels are working to communicate God’s message to us and protect us. Pretty awesome, right? They are not to be worshiped. They just work for God. They are helpers. They also hold tons of info that can help us along our paths.
The best part is you can connect with them and score some really valuable guidance. Remember that psychic I mentioned earlier? Turns out she’s really a medium: someone who can communicate with angels and passed loved ones.
In fact, I was so inspired by her gift, I decided I wanted to see if I could do the same. And today, the majority of my clients come to me for just that. I serve as almost a translator between my clients and their angels or passed love ones. Honestly, it’s one of the most rewarding parts of my work.
While it’s always nice to have a mediator to bounce ideas with, you are completely capable of communicating on your own. We’re all born with the ability to connect to the divine. Just sometimes we get so used to living in this dense world that we forget how to make the connection.
So, here are a few ways that can help you with connecting to your angels:
How to Connect with Your Angels
[IF !SUPPORTLISTS]1. [ENDIF]HOW DO YOU GET YOUR MESSAGES?
People receive messages in different ways. When I heard about angels, I remember saying out loud, “I’d love to talk to you guys, but please don’t show up in my bedroom in the middle of the night. I do not want to see you.” For a long time, I didn’t see them in physical form. But some people do see angels regularly.
Other people simply hear messages, which is how I started. It’s almost like hearing yourself, but quicker and with less B.S. and more piece. They’re pretty straight to the point.
Some people get their information in a combination form. For example, I see a picture that comes along with a message. That’s how they communicate with me.
This is important to understand, in case you get your information in a different way, I don’t want to think you’re doing it wrong.
[IF !SUPPORTLISTS]2. [ENDIF]ESTABLISH COMMUNICATION
You want to start by addressing them the way you would in a prayer. “Hey Angels! I heard you exist. Would love to chat.” Keep it casual.
You can them tell them how you’d like to communicate. When I first started I would ask them to talk to me in my dreams. I thought that sounded safe. And they did! Doreen Virtue suggest writing a question and placing it under your pillow.
You can ask them to speak to you through your writing. You can grab a notebook and just start free writing without thinking. Ask them to speak through the movement of your hand.
Another strategy is to start by asking for small signs. You can ask them something like, “If you hear me, show me a butterfly throughout the day.”
You can try connecting through meditation. Sit on the floor. Close your eyes. Connect to your breath. Address your angels and then ask a question. Notice if you see any images in your mind’s eye. Can they some how be an answer to your question?
[IF !SUPPORTLISTS]3. [ENDIF]EDUCATE YOURSELF
My last tip is to learn more about angels and how they work. You can read books like “Angel 101,” “How to Hear Your Angels”, or “Healing with Angels.”
Take a visit to a trusted angel medium. There are people out there whose life work is all about angels. They have so much amazing knowledge.
Chatting with your angels is just like any relationship: it takes time and love. But, of course, way worth it!
