The angels have a mission to serve and assist you along your journey. It is important to know that it is an honor for them to do so. In the following chapters you will discover how the angels can help you in all aspects of your life: career, finances, manifesting your dreams, relationships, and so much more. You will learn about the specific angels, their roles, and how they can help you in your everyday life. You will discover the power of prayer and how you can use it to invoke the angels into your life so you can be touched and blessed by their miracles.
God blessed you with the angels who act as messengers between heaven and earth. He knew that you would be challenged throughout your life experience and He did not want you to feel alone or separate from His love. The angels are here to help you. Just as you have roles here on earth — being a mother, a brother, a student, a teacher — the angels have roles, too.
Because God loves you so much, He assigned you at least two personal guardian angels. They are here to help you in any way they can and they watch over you twenty-four hours a day until you leave this lifetime.
If you are working in any type of healing or helping profession, you have a team of angels assigned to help you. There are also money angels, weather angels, prosperity angels, healing angels, and angels for everything you could imagine.
The archangels, who oversee the angels, also have specific roles to assist humanity in both subtle and profound ways. They are very powerful and even if a large number of people are praying for their help at the same time, they can be with each person simultaneously.
Don’t worry about memorizing the specific angel names and their roles; just call out and ask for the help. For example, you’ve lost your sense of direction and you don’t know where you are. Call out, “Direction angels, please help me find my way or connect me with someone who can show me the way.”
There are legions of divine helpers here on earth and there is no task too small or unimaginable that they cannot handle. Just remember, your assignment is to ask for their help; otherwise, they will not intervene unless it’s a life-threatening situation.
Praying for Help
Many people who have experienced a strong religious upbringing struggle with guilt. Are you one of those people who feel guilty when you have a long list of prayers? Have you been taught that it’s selfish to pray for yourself and you should only be praying for the needs of others? It’s time to change your beliefs about the power of prayer. Here is what your angels want you to know when praying for help:
- Ask for help with anything and everything you need.
- There is no prayer too small or too big.
- You don’t need to pray in any certain way. Discover what feels right for you.
- There is no special place for prayer. Pray everywhere and anywhere.
- Prayers are never counted. Ask in abundance.
- The angels would never see a prayer as selfish. Ask for yourself as much as you do for others.
- God knows exactly which angels to assign to the task.
- Trust and know there are more than enough angels.
God and the angels want you to be at peace when you communicate with them. They love you unconditionally, so there is nothing you could do or say that would take away from this love. They want you to feel comfortable asking for what you need. As you discover the power of prayer, you will understand how loved you really are.
Once You Pray, Then What?
You have sat in prayer with the angels and you’ve shared your desires and what you need help with. A powerful way to end your prayers and requests is with the following statement: “I am open to my highest and best, better than I could ever imagine, and the highest and best of all.”
Think about the powerful intention of this affirmation.
“I am open to my highest and best, better than I could ever imagine.”
You are surrendering your prayer to God, asking for divine will, and trusting that He knows what’s in your highest and best. You are also affirming that you are allowing the best possible outcome to occur. This is significant if you have any issues around fear, guilt, or unworthiness. Can you imagine if your prayers were answered and the outcome was beyond your wildest expectations?
The last part of the affirmation, “and the highest and best of all,” is very important. You want to affirm to yourself and the angels that the desired outcome of your prayer will benefit all concerned. For example, if you are praying for guidance about a new job that involves moving your family, you want God and the angels to show you an answer that will benefit all concerned. So if for some reason things do not work out, you would know based on your prayer that it did not manifest because it was not in everyone’s highest and best to make the move. This can bring you great peace even in the midst of disappointment.
Once you pray to God and the angels and you ask for the help you need, your job is to surrender and then affirm that you are open to receive more than you can imagine. This gives the angels permission to intervene and it affirms your worthiness to receive.
Have Faith and Trust
Trusting in God and believing in something greater, especially when you can’t see it or touch it, is a challenge. It requires patience and determination. As you open your heart to the divine, you begin to experience these beautiful manifestations of love and naturally your faith and trust builds over time.
Faith means a firm belief in something for which there is no proof. Another meaning is belief and trust in God. Maybe that’s why in Matthew 17:20 Jesus says, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Isn’t it true that your faith deepens every time you witness your prayers being answered and fulfilled? But what happens when you feel your prayers are left unanswered? Have you ever gone through a time in your life when you questioned, “Is there really a God out there watching over me?” The truth is, your prayers are heard and answered, but not always in the way you expect. It could be a matter of timing, where everything needs to fall into place before the answer is shown. Some people call this divine timing, which means that your prayers are being answered in God’s time. It’s important to understand that you also have soul lessons to learn. You need to go through certain life experiences so you can learn valuable lessons. Instead of having them healed immediately by God and the angels, you might need to go through the experience so you can accept its gifts and the lessons it has to teach you. This is important to understand so you can keep the faith and truly believe that you have spiritual helpers assisting you along the journey.
If you want to enhance your faith in God and the angels, use the following affirmation: “I choose to deepen my faith and believe. I trust that all my prayers are heard and answered for my highest and best and the highest and best of all.”
Another reason your prayers may not be answered in the way you expect is because God and the angels know what’s best for you. Think about it: Have you ever looked back on your journey and realized that an unanswered prayer was a blessing in disguise? For example, you were ready to sign a purchase and sale agreement on a new home and it fell through, leaving you feeling disappointed and discouraged. Because of this situation, you found a house that was better and less expensive than the first one. Later on you found out that the first house had water issues. You can believe that your angels are working behind the scenes and they do know what’s in your best interest.
Feeling Worthy and Deserving
Many people struggle with the issue of feeling unworthy and undeserving. They have trouble receiving what’s rightfully theirs as a child of God. The angels will remind you that you deserve the best and it’s your divine right to be happy, joyful, fulfilled, and prosperous.
If you deal with these issues, then it’s your job to shift your thinking. You need to change your beliefs so they match your worth as a child of God. This is so important when you think about the angels answering your prayers. Let’s say you asked the angels to help you fulfill your dream of going to Italy, but deep down inside you feel unworthy of receiving such an expensive and luxurious trip. Believe it or not, you are very powerful, and because of your inner beliefs, you could block that trip from happening, even though the angels have everything worked out to make it possible.
Ask the angels, “Dearest angels, help me change my thinking so I can believe and know beyond any doubt that I am worthy and deserving of the best. I am a child of God and I am open to receive the kingdom of heaven here on earth.”
Another question to ask yourself is, “Can you accept help and do you deserve it?” Take a couple of moments and reflect on this thought. Are you willing to let others help you so you can experience more peace, health, fulfillment, or prosperity, and if they do, do you deserve it? This is significant because the angels might send people into your life that act as earth angels. They come as an answer to your prayers and it’s your job to let them in, allowing them to help you in any way they can. This may be hard for you, so get ready to be humbled by the help of others. Did you ever stop to think that when you allow others to help you, you might be helping them?
When you ask the angels for help with certain aspects of your life — relationships, finances, health, home, or career — make sure you check in and affirm to yourself that you are worthy and deserving of receiving the best. This will clear the way so you can easily receive what you’ve asked for and more.
Now that you have planted the mustard seed of faith in your heart and you feel worthy and deserving of the best, your next step is to believe that anything is possible with the help of God and the angels. Release your prayers and requests to the angels and then let go of the specifics. You don’t have to know how it’s going to happen, when it’s going to happen, or where it’s going to take place. Your job is to hold the vision and believe that anything’s possible. When it does come fruition, you need to play your part. If action is required and you need to initiate it, then do so. The manifestation of a prayer is a cocreation; the angels do their part and so do you.
Stay away from negative people and situations when you are focused on manifesting your dreams into reality. Surround yourself with people who believe in you and support your vision.
Here is an example to help you understand the power of believing. You’ve asked the angels to help you find the perfect job, at the perfect place, with the perfect people, and at the perfect pay; therefore, you’ve set your clear intentions on what you want. You take the time to research the market and you spend time looking for that perfect job, but still there’s nothing out there that matches your desires. When this happens, you need to keep the faith and stay focused on your dreams and desires. Affirm your dream, visualize it, and keep surrendering it to the angels. Ask the angels for patience and perseverance and then continue to believe that anything is possible, and most importantly, don’t settle for less. You will witness your faith and belief in the angels paying off. Before you know it, you will be sharing your story with others and encouraging them to believe that anything is possible.
Throughout this book you have learned some key steps to take when working with the angels. Here is a quick review of the basics:
- Ask the angels for help.
- Surrender your prayers and feel worthy to receive your highest and best.
- Have faith and trust in God and the angels and believe anything is possible.
- Pay attention to the signs, synchronicities, and coincidences.
- Take action.
This last step is one of the most important steps. You need to take action on any guidance you receive. You need to follow every clue the angels give you until your prayers are answered. Here are some great examples:
You are praying for more prosperity and someone crosses your path and recommends a book about creating more abundance in your life. Do you buy the book or do you ignore the message?
You ask your angels to help you meet your soul partner and you unexpectedly get invited to a social event. Do you have the courage to go or do you remain in your comfort zone and stay home?
You ask the angels to guide you toward your life purpose. An old coworker from a previous job calls you and says she’s starting a new business. She wants to know if the two of you can meet. Do you respond in fear and question her motives or do you approach it with curiosity, wondering if there’s an opportunity waiting for you?
When you think of miracles you think of Jesus. He was a teacher and He was the embodiment of Spirit in human form. He performed miracles proving to everyone that when you become one God and you create from the divine power of love, miracles happen.
You play an important role in helping the angels answer your prayers. It takes courage to follow the clues and, when you take action accordingly, you will discover that you can cocreate with the angels so you can manifest what you really want in your life.
One definition of miracle is “a wonder or a wonderful thing” and another definition is “an extraordinary event of divine intervention.” When you look at these two definitions, miracles occur every day. Some miracles are small, such as you think you’re going to be late for work and you get a green light at every intersection and you actually get to work on time. Other miracles are extraordinary, like a man falling fifteen stories and surviving with only minor breaks and bruises.
When you work with the divine power of love, expect miracles to happen in both subtle and profound ways. A powerful affirmation you can say to invite miracles into your life is: “I am fearless. I embrace today with love in my heart. I am expecting miracles and I am accepting miracles.” As you say this statement, feel your worth and believe that you deserve to receive miracles in every aspect of your life. Then begin to notice the blessings of love all around you. Say thank you to God and the angels each and every time you witness a miracle and share your miracles with others so they, too, can be open to their blessings.
