Connecting with Spirit Guides and Archangels has become such a beautiful, everyday habit for me – like stirring tea into my honey – that I almost take it for granted.
Over the last year, I’ve connected with my team daily. Sometimes for miracles or healing, sometimes for business advice or parenting tips, often for peace and bliss. There are many ways to connect, as you’ll see, and your Spirit will feel nourished every time you do.
If you’re looking to open up to your own Divine Team or strengthen the connection you already have, the following guide can help you.
Your Divine Team
You have a whole bunch of Guides with you in this life. You chose each other before you incarnated. Most of them will come and go, but your main Spirit Guide is with you for life (and many lives previous)… no matter what. They want you to live the best life possible according to your Higher Self (your complete Soul), so they may gently challenge you at times, but they never judge you, no matter what you do. They are pure love.
You also have a different Guide for everything you’ve got going on. You have a Career Guide, Spirituality Guide, Parenting Guide, Marriage Guide, Nature Guide, Health Guide, and so on.
These guides used to live as humans before they became enlightened, and now they never need to incarnate again (this is simplifying it, but stay with me). They deeply understand your humanness in all its shades of light and dark: joy, love, sex, food, pleasure, nature, pain, anger, guilt, shame, and everything else about being human.
Archangels, however, have never incarnated as a human. They’re literally on a different level. Although we’re all made from the same Love and Light, Archangels fly pretty close to the Source; they are the messengers of God/Goddess.
Archangels help with big decisions, protection, healing, forgiveness, spiritual growth, communication, creativity, and unconditional love. Oh and so much more. They’re the ones I turn to when I need a miracle. Spirit Guides help more with everyday or specific things.
If your intention is good and your heart open, you will connect to your Divine Team effortlessly. You need to TRUST… trust that you will receive the information you need or what they need to communicate to you, and trust that you know what it means. Trust that you have Angels and Guides all around you at all times wanting to love, guide and protect you. Trust that you are safe with them.
Once you’ve established a connection with them (see the meditation below), you’ll notice their signs and guidance more regularly. Personally, I see feathers, butterflies, and other signs on a daily basis, I see orbs of light when the Angels are trying to get a message to me, and I feel goosebumps and shivers when they are telling me I’m on the right track.
Often I hear their names when I need to know who is with me and why. Sometimes it’s spontaneous and in a dream or meditation (in the past I’ve had to look them up because I have no idea who I just met!), other times I’ll keep meeting people with the same – or similar – name to an Angel and it’s a sign I need to meditate and spend time with them, or journal if they need me to know something. It’s all very intuitive, but it has happened so slowly for me.
Don’t worry if you don’t know who is trying to speak to you, they’re all available. Simply connect to the one who most appeals, and go from there.
Sit somewhere comfortable with your feet flat on the floor and your palms turned upwards. Slow down your breathing. Breathe in, filling your belly and expanding your ribcage. Gently breathe out. Feel your connection to the core of Mama Earth through your feet. Open the top of your energy field above your head to establish a Divine connection. Keep breathing slowly.
Now ask an Archangel to come close to you – you can choose a particular Angel or let them choose you. Soon you’ll feel their powerfully loving presence. Notice how you feel when they’re close. See if you can sense their colour. Ask them for their name and a sign or a message. Trust what you feel, hear and/or see. The first words that come to you is your message; the first thing you see is your sign. Take your time with them until you feel your connection is complete – this may take a few minutes or half an hour. When you are ready, thank them. Close your energy field by imagining a bubble around you. Feel back into your body and open your eyes.
When you are finished with your meditation, you may want to take notes or get creative and draw or paint. Or you might just want to savour the feeling. Stay away from screens for a while as they will feel jarring after such a connection.
Also, if you ever feel uncomfortable during a meditation, simply ask that Only beings of pure light and love be with me now. And if you ever feel like saying a prayer, showing your gratitude or asking for help, say And so it is when you are done so you feel and know that it has already been answered for your highest possible good.
