All You Have To Do Is Ask

I am frequently asked how to communicate with a guardian angel and the answer is simple: all you have to do is ask.

Your guardian angel is there all the time, waiting and hoping for you to start to listen to it. It has in fact, been touching you all along, willing you to realize that it is there.

As you read this, acknowledge the fact that there is an angel by your side. If you find this hard to do, just suspend your disbelief for a short time and imagine it. Have a little faith and be open to the possibility that there is someone there beside you who never leaves you even for one second, who wants to help you. Even if you are very afraid to do it, acknowledge your guardian angel and welcome them in. This is the first step.

Angels go to great lengths to try to communicate with humans. I have seen angels pulling people’s clothes or make them drop things to try and get their attention. We have so much help available, so many angels wanting to guide us but many of us don’t want, or are too busy, to listen. We believe that we can do everything ourselves.

Consider for a moment how often you have had an experience like this. You are heading off somewhere and you go right instead of left.

Deep inside you knew that you should have gone left and you kick yourself. That would have been your guardian angel telling you telepathically, or whispering in your ear, that you should go left.

Each time something like this happens remind yourself to listen the next time. So many times we ignore our guardian angel or do the complete opposite and then we complain that things do not work out for us. God wants us to be happy and to enjoy our lives but we need to listen to our guardian angel.

Angels love to teach and are brilliant teachers. If you are willing and open to learn, they will teach you how to communicate with them. One of the great things about angels is that they never give up. Even if we give up on ourselves, the angels never will. I don’t know where they get the patience from.

In the early stage of teaching you how to communicate, the angels will teach you using trivial things. Perhaps you have left your house when suddenly you get a feeling that you have forgotten something, but you know you have everything with you. Well go back in and check – this is how the angels teach people. More than likely you will find that there is something that you hadn’t thought of that you had forgotten or there is something that needs to be done. The angels use ordinary, everyday things as teaching tools. They are trying to get through to you, they want you to respond. We humans go around looking for meaning in everything. Stop looking for meaning all the time. Don’t over complicate matters. The angels will tell you when to look for meaning.

Angels are very good at giving signs. If you are only starting to develop your communication then ask for a small sign. Keep asking too. Perhaps you might ask for a particular friend who you haven’t been in contact with for a while to ring you, or you might ask for the lights in your room to flicker when you are thinking of, or talking to your guardian angel.

Be alert for signs, often we miss them. A person asking for help may feel a gentle breeze flowing across the room, sometimes an angel might touch your hand or you might feel a sensation of pins and needles out of the blue. These little signs are your guardian angel’s way of telling you that they are there and that they can hear you.

A sign from the angels, no matter how trivial it may seem at the time, is a symbol of hope that reminds us that we are not alone, no matter what may be happening in our lives.

We need signs because we are only human and we need reassurance. We need to know that God and his angels are there. God gives us many signs and if we keep our eyes, ears and hearts open we will see them and they will help to fill our lives with hope, joy and laughter.
