Guardian Angel, spirit guide, spirit animal, Higher Self…whatever you want to call it, more people than ever wish to contact these otherworldly beings. Let’s face it; life on Earth can seem downright exhausting, confusing, and terrifying at times, but learning to connect with your guardian angel can help you navigate the turbulent waters and sail to smoother seas once again.
These times can feel very isolating and scary, but our guardian angels want us to know that they are here with us through it all, and can help guide us along our unique paths. Maybe you have tried to contact your guardian angels before to no avail, or maybe you’ve been interested in doing so, but have never really given it a shot. No matter your situation, we will discuss some ways to connect with your personal guardian angel in the article below.
Here’s how to contact your guardian angel:
Pay attention to your physical environment and how you react to it
Guardian angels like to communicate with us through physical sensations at times, so you don’t need to do anything except take note of how you feel. For example, if you start to get goosebumps on your skin for no apparent reason, or just get the feeling that someone or something is in the room with you, these could be signs of a guardian angel trying to make contact with you.
When something in your physical environment occurs without you being able to pinpoint the source, recognize that one of your guardian angels might be trying to connect. If we pay attention to our surroundings and really focus on the sensations we feel, we can have a better chance of contacting our guardian angel.
Meditate and ask your guardian angel to make itself known to you
Our guardian angels contact us in a different realm, so it can take time to receive their messages down here in our denser reality. However, meditation provides an excellent time to get in touch with your guide, as this practice increases your own vibration, allowing you to access higher realms yourself. During your meditation, simply ask your guardian angel(s) to make themselves known to you. They might respond immediately, or it could take some time, depending on how ready you are to receive the messages.
Guardian angels often don’t make themselves known unless we initiate contact with them, and meditation makes for a wonderful medium for them to communicate with us. During meditation, we can block out all the worldly distractions, and focus on just ‘being’ and receiving messages as they come along.
Make note of repeating numbers or other ‘signs’ in your environment
According to Doreen Virtue, seeing 11:11 frequently means that your guardian angel wants to send you a message from the higher realms, and that you’re manifesting your thoughts very quickly into reality. The more you notice repeating numbers, especially 1’s, the stronger the connection between you and your guardian angel. Learn to slow down and pay attention to these signs, as more and more people seem to notice repeating numbers these days. This shows that our angels, or whatever you’d like to call them, are more desperate than ever to make contact with us. Also, if you happen to hear the same song on the radio every time you get in the car, pay attention to its meaning and what relevance it has in your life. Our guides often like to communicate with us through music on the radio, believe it or not.
Ask your guardian angel to come to you in a dream
They also love to send messages to us in our dreams, since we have entered another reality and don’t have distractions left and right from daily life. In our restful state, we are much easier to contact. Before going to sleep each night, simply ask them to visit in your dreams, and make sure to write down anything you remember the next morning.
Your dream will vary depending on what messages or signs your guardian angel needs to deliver to you.
Pray to them for assistance in your life
Doreen Virtue, a well-known psychic, angel healer, and motivational speaker, says that “No angel shall interfere with a human’s life unless asked, with the sole exception of a life-threatening emergency” in her book, Angel Therapy. Just like in real life, to receive help from our angels, we must ask for it first.
As long as you have a true need and desire to connect with your spirit guide, they will make contact with you and offer assistance. Remember, they want to help you, so don’t hesitate to call on them for support when you need it most.
