“I’ve had an angel on my shoulder all my life.” — Barbara Hale
“I wish I had someone right now…” “No one needs me.” “I just need a shoulder to lean on.” These phrases are not new. Some of you, who have reached here today, may even have had such a thought at some point in your life. These are the words that come out of your mouth in the gloom of despair. But do remember, from the peak of darkness, begins a new morning, a new day. Whenever in life you felt that you had no one, not even your family, your guardian angels were sitting right next to you. They sent signals your way and all they were waiting for was the allowance of your free will to let them intervene.
Who are your Guardian Angels?
Do you remember how your mothers used to wrap your lunch so you do not have to stay hungry during school? How did she mention specific details about you to your teacher in case of allergies or an illness? She did it to protect you on your journey from home to school and then way back home. Your ultimate parent (call it mother or father) was equally concerned for you while sending you to the material plane. Hence, she/he assigned you the guardian angel/s to protect you in the journey of your life.
Guardian angels are with you right from your incarnation (as you enter your mother’s womb) and assist you till your soul departs from here. They may even guide you to the next incarnations. They are the light beings that remain with you to aid you in every concern you encounter. They help you resolve things daily and answer each query of yours. You just need to think of them and allow them to intervene in a situation. Their divine guidance includes the message of the Ultimate as they are the ‘messengers of God.’
Why they have not heard me until now?
Like any other divine being, guardian angels need your permission to get involved in your situation. Some folks think that good or bad karma of the other lives contributes to the communication with angels. But this is nowhere near the truth? It does not matter what kind of karma you have created in past or current lives? Guardian angels will always be there to turn on the switch of your ‘higher consciousness.’ And I can’t stress this enough, “they need your approval” to mediate.
7 Signs of Communication
They must have been trying to talk to you until date, but you may have been ignoring their signs. Here are the signs that would help to understand that your guardian angels are sending you signals.
- Feathers- YES! The one sign that is most commonly noticed yet most commonly ignored. They are the soft, delicate, and white feathers. You may often spot them on your shoulders, stuck to clothes, or they just flow down to your feet. This happens especially when you are really looking for a breakthrough. I spotted them since I was a child. They appeared whenever I was sad or looking through the sky for help.
- Currency- If you ever found a bill or some cash at a place you didn’t expect at all and when you need it the most, you have encountered your guardian angels. This is the way of the angels to tell you that your prayers are being heard and answered. Just go ahead and ask for more! This instance was very common to me, especially when I was unemployed. I came to believe it only when I read an article of Doreen Virtue on the very similar aspect.
- Music- Angels love to communicate through music. This phenomenon resonates more with those who have clairaudience. Let’s put it this way- have you ever asked a question to the source and you hear some music that immediately draws your attention? You may hear it over and over in the leading days after you put that query to the divine. If not music then maybe some song. By music, angels are willing to draw your attention to something very specific. Other times, it is just a straight answer to your question.
- Writing- By writing, I don’t only mean handwriting but words in a book, too. This is when you read a book, a letter, or an email and a peculiar set of words click a particular thought inside you. For example, I was once worried about the kind of job I should choose. No matter what I picked up to read, a set of words were common everywhere, artistic, creative, and intuitive. It simply made me realize that my work was not supposed to be clerical. Whatever I had to do had to be connected with my intuition and my artistic abilities.
- Visuals- The angels come to this option when you are more of a ‘believe in what I see’ person. Maybe you are not able to perceive things through reading, evident signs, or even music then you may be drawn to things that you can visually relate to. As career was a big concern for me previously, I often released the query to the universe. Miraculously, every alternate day I happen to spot ‘3 Idiots (Hindi Movie)’ on television. I always tuned into the channel when Aamir said: “excellence ka peecha karo, success jhak marke peeche aayegi” (don’t run behind success but excellence, success will effortlessly follow you).
- Thoughts- Have you ever laid your head down to relax and perceived a whole picture of your life in seconds? This is no accident. The angels are clearly indicating you that there is so much more ahead and they are with you. You would not be imagining these things for long, it would happen in an instance. Your eyes might be closed and you would just open them up in a rush. These thoughts would not be dreadful instead you would feel calm and more confident afterward.
- Offers- There may have been a day in your life when you wanted to buy something but you were low on funds. It could have been a book, a device, or an online course. But, within the next few hours or days, the price of that one thing dropped down to a discount. It means it was meant for you and you got it. Or your inbox receives an email with the desired job opportunity right when you needed it the most. I needed to bag a job that could pay me 25K back in 2016. I thought it was impossible because I was working very hard to earn with freelance writing and tuition. I was not sure that any company would agree to pay me that amount, since I was not in a permanent job. But it happened. In a few days, I received an opportunity to work with an exhibition group who were immensely impressed with my writing skills.
The upshot is that your guardian angels can drop you signs but cannot take over till you allow them to. They will guide you at every step, you just have to connect with them mentally. With their presence at every second of life, they help you realize that you are a child of God and he is willing to help you to come out of the dark. God intends a great life for you indeed.
P.S. So when next time you feel that you have no one to help you in tough times, remember that you are not alone on the journey of life. Your guardian angels are there, guiding you and guarding you at every step. They love you. God loves you. I love you.
