In last week’s article, I discussed Spirit cards and how they function. Spirit cards serve essentially as channels for seekers to connect with Spirit and receive messages to help, heal and guide us. In this article, we focus on how Angel cards work and who Angels are.
What are Angel cards, and how do Angel card readings work?
Angel cards usually come in decks of Angelic numbers such as 33 or 44. Each card contains a picture of an Angel or Archangel, along with a keyword and/or message that the Angelic being represents. Every card in the deck is unique; no cards are repeated.
During a reading, the seeker asks a question. The Angel deck is presented face-down to the seeker. The seeker randomly draws a number of cards from the deck, selecting these cards using his or her intuition, before turning them over to discover the Angels’ answer.
Many times, while the seeker is selecting the cards I can see that person’s guardian angels standing alongside and slightly behind the seeker, gently nudging the seeker to pick certain cards. I sometimes also see the Angels represented in the cards channelling their energies into the deck, giving certain cards an energy boost to attract the seeker to them.
So I can guarantee you this: when you select the cards, you’re not alone. You have an Angelic support team that’s literally behind you all the way, and is willing to intervene in your life once you call on them for assistance!
So who are the Angels, anyway?
I’m glad you asked! Let’s get some facts straight about these awesome, loving and powerful spiritual beings RIGHT NOW. <3
First and foremost, you don’t have to be religious to believe in Angels. Angels exist whether you believe in them or not. They are servants of God, Source, Origin, or whatever you wish to call the Divine Creator Spirit. Like God, the Angels are not constrained by religious belief, cultural tradition, or whether you’re a good or bad person.
We are all born with at least one guardian angel. Their mission is to guide us through this strange little thing called life, and to help us achieve our highest and greatest good possible. After all, we are co-creators of our destiny, and within each of our souls is a spark from the Divine flame. The Angels see the Divine in us, and love us for what we can become. Isn’t that wonderful?
So it doesn’t matter if you’re Christian, Catholic, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, pagan, agnostic or atheist – it doesn’t matter who or what you are – your guardian angel exists, loves you unconditionally, and wants the best for you.
Angels are not human. They are a different race of high-vibrational Spirit beings who take on a human-like appearance so as not to scare the crap out of us. So, to answer a frequently-asked question: No, I’m afraid your deceased loved ones don’t become your guardian angels after they cross into the Light. Many of them do return as Spirit Guides, though. Or simply as themselves! (I’ll cover that in the next article, so stay tuned.)
What’s the difference between Angels and Archangels?
In one word: rank. An Angelic hierarchy exists. The top generals in the Angelic host are known as the Archangels. They each have a specific portfolio, and contribute in their own way to anchor more and more Light in a world that needs it so desperately.
The Archangels are powerful enough that they can be in more than one place at a time, so go ahead and call on them whenever you need. Some examples of Archangels and their portfolios include:
- MICHAEL: The Warrior Archangel and Upholder of God’s truth. He’s the head honcho amongst the Archangels and the most well-known, for good reason! He’s always willing to provide assistance in the service of Light. Call on him for courage, strength under pressure, and protection.
- GABRIEL: This Archangel’s main task is to act as the messenger of God. Call on him/her (this Archangel is androgynous) for emotional release, the healing and empowerment of the Divine Feminine within your soul, as well as assistance in communicating important messages.
- RAPHAEL: The Healer. Call on him for healing, recovery and rejuvenation from all sorts of disease and dis-ease, be it physical, mental, or emotional. He also watches over travellers, and it’s good to call on him for protection when going on a trip. Raphael’s keen sense of humour proves that laughter truly is the best medicine.
- URIEL: Call on this Archangel if you desire a clear perspective in a confusing situation. He’s the Guardian of the earthly realm, and your go-to Archangel for anything to do with environmental conservation, animal rights etc! You can also call on Uriel to help improve your relationship with your pets.
If Angels exist and love me so much, then why do I still have so many problems? Also, how do I call on my guardian angels and the Archangels?
Angels are bound by the Laws of the Universe. As agents of God, they cannot and will not overstep their boundaries. One boundary in particular is set by our free will. You and I have the autonomy to decide how we want to lead our lives, and the Angels will respect our choices. They won’t intervene unless we ask them to – so maybe it’s time to start asking!
How to talk to your angels: Go somewhere peaceful and quiet where you can relax. Make yourself comfortable. Close your eyes if you’d like, and breathe deeply. Concentrate on your breathing until you reach a state of calmness. Then speak to your guardian angels in your mind and heart. No worries, they can read your thoughts.
When you’re done, give them your love and thanks. Then you can end your session of prayer and meditation (yep, that’s what just happened!) with a nap. Or some gentle stretching. Or a burger. Whatever makes you happy. It’s that simple. 🙂
Alternatively, you might like to try an Angel card reading. If so, feel free to book a reading with a Spirit worker you trust, and who works with Angels.
May your connection with the Angels bless your life richly!
