Search the internet and you will find many stories and reports of angelic encounters. Beings that look just like me or you and turn up when you’ve run out of fuel on a lonely road in the middle of the night with a gas can only to disappear when you look away. Voices that jolt you awake when you’re falling asleep at the wheel of your car. Messages from strangers telling you to phone your Mother because she’s ill.
Of course, I can’t comment on the validity of any of these. We all perceive things in different ways. My main feeling is ‘Wow, I’d like to meet an Angel’. But you know, I did once. At least I think I did but who’s to say.
I was about thirteen years old and off from school with quite a chronic illness. My Dad was at work, my Mum worked part-time and my siblings were at school so I was all alone. Now, these were the days when you didn’t lock your doors during the day so, when I lay on the couch feeling pretty miserable and sorry for myself I didn’t give a thought as to who might walk in.
Anyway I was dozing and then opened my eyes and a figure was standing over me. I couldn’t make out any details because it was dark (not the light in the room – the figure). It was a human shape and it was standing with its hands on its hips and shaking its head at me. Then I went back to sleep again until my Mum came home.
Now, anybody could have walked in and stood over me but nobody ever said they did and, if it was a human visitor, wouldn’t they have spoken?
The other thing was the darkness of the figure. Aren’t we led to believe that this indicates dark forces and malevolence? If it was an Angel why wasn’t it shining and bright?
However, the really important thing about it was how the ‘encounter’ left me feeling: I was overwhelmed with peace. I was dripping in it. And I think that’s the key with angelic encounters.
We all perceive things in different ways according to our beliefs, upbringing and culture. But what we feel from an angelic encounter is probably very similar: peace, love, safety and security. And that’s why I think I had an angelic encounter when I was thirteen – because it felt good.
Whilst angelic visions are limited to a small percentage of the population, it doesn’t mean that they are excluded from the rest of us. Because the vision is not important. I’ll say it again – we all perceive things differently.
So, how do you tap into this energy? It’s very simple:
- You ask the angels to come into your life. You don’t plead or beg or negotiate or bribe. You simple invite the angels to be part of your life, to work with you and guide you and protect you. I find that asking through prayer works for me but you might do it as you meditate or by having a general conversation with them as you go through your day.
- You believe that they have accepted your invitation.
Using the angelic energy works really well with your children too, especially if they’re nervous, fearful or don’t sleep well. Children have no problem believing as we adults do. All you need to do is remind them occasionally if they forget that their Angel is with them.
And you need to remember too. A little angel statuette on your bedside table to greet you when you wake up in the morning works well or a beautiful painting that you can sit and contemplate.
The angelic force is for sharing too so, if a friend is in need send them an angel card. It will deliver the energy for you.
Although I’ve spoken to angels for many years it wasn’t until recently that I said ‘Okay I give up, let’s do it your way’. I decided to go with the flow and I really haven’t looked back. Opportunities are popping up for me to earn an income and I’m busy but not stressed. I’m not rich but neither am I worried about the future. All in all the angelic energy can reside with me for as long as it wants.
May the force be with you too.
