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’ (or spirit guides) 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.


Writing to the Angels is an excellent way to align and connect with them, and it can help you gain clarity on personal issues. Writing to them, just as you'd write a letter to a close friend, helps to strengthen the contact you've already made by establishing a mind/heart link. That link develops as you bring the angel into your mind and heart to direct your thoughts to it.

When you have problems, you can write to your angels. Open your heart and let your true thoughts and feelings flow forth and pour them out onto the paper. Once done, let go of the issue or problem and ask the angels to resolve the problem and find a solution to suit your highest good and the good of all.

A simple way to purify your thoughts and receive angelic help and healing, is to write down all your concerns. List everything that makes you feel angry, sad or that causes you to behave in a fearful or negative manner. Let it all out to your angels. Be honest about what makes you feel fearful, disappointed or disillusioned.

When you have finished your list, rather than going over what you’ve written, burn the piece of paper. Do not dwell on old issues and hurts as this relives the negativity - just burn the paper so that the past is cleansed and you can receive healing.

The act of writing also helps you to organise your thoughts and clear your mind of clutter. Writing will allow the angels to come through to you on a high frequency. Corresponding with your angels clears out the static and mind chatter that interferes with good reception. Another benefit is that when you externalize your intentions and desires, you begin to release them. A thought on paper is encapsulated and complete. In writing it down, you clear out the portion of your brain that held it, making room for something new.

Writing can also help to loosen your attachment to desires. When you put them out, you can let them go. If you keep clutching them, there is no way you can release them to your angel, and to get the support you need in getting what you want. We can only receive with an open, empty hand. However, if what you want does not come to you when, or, as you wanted it, keep track of the outcome. Very often you will find that something better occurred instead.

Remember that angels are beings of 'connection', not of control. The way in which they support us will come from love and not from power.

When we ask for help, our angels will always respond and back us up. But they do this from a wider perspective that we are usually unable to see. What we perceive as the perfect lover or perfect job for us, may not be the proper choice for our highest good in the long-run – eventhough it may look good to us in the moment, and fit our current image of what we want. Through conversing and communicating with our angels, we learn to upgrade our desires – to want not simply what we want, but what is best for all. Over time, we discover that this give us a deeper sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. And this is only one of the gifts angelic contact brings.

You can also write to other people's angels. This is not about trying to control somebody else; it is about expressing what's so for you. You may sometimes find yourself in difficult or unfortunate situations with people you can't talk to, or fear you might hurt them if you say the things you want to say. You may also have things to say to people who have passed out of your life or who have passed over to the other side.

  1. very intersesting

  2. This is fascinating, and I'm going to give it my best try; I'm ready for my Angels to assist me in the many ways I need them to at this point in my life. Thank you for this inspiring column, I feel it will change my life in a positive way and hope it will for others as well! :)

  3. I'm actually seeing some 'angel numbers' since last year. I started seeing 123, which means 'live your life simply,' and I thought that's quite fitting back then because I WAS a pessimist. I had always felt that I'm unfortunate in my social life, family, and school, or that everyone hated me and thought little of me. It was like I carried all the burden in the world.
    But when I acknowledged the meaning of 123, I started to become fascinated by the 'signs' I have read from most books. So, I looked them up in the net and I encountered this one video that talked about the repeating number sequences. And then I later knew them as 'angel numbers.' That's when I started seeing 1111 more often until I encountered your site for the messages beyond the numbers. Your site served as my guide throughout my change.
    So, now I feel more connected to the world, including the spiritual world. And I believe my angel lead me to where I am now - a more confident and more courageous individual. I actually don't leave comments like this one because I'm unsure of my grammar or any mistakes I might commit, since English is not my first language. But now I don't pay much heed to how people might think of it, as long as I express what I feel.
    I'd like to thank you for being a part of my greatest change. You're an angel yourself, and you've shed some light into my life.
    Thank You! Keep on inspiring people! :)
