Angel communication | Learning how to hear the divine messages
World full of Spirits
Believe it or not, there are many spirits living among us, some good, some bad, some just inexperienced, the good ones are there to protect us, the bad ones are there to help point us in the right direction when we go too far from our destiny path, and the inexperienced ones are pretty much just like us but in a different realm, some may not even know they are dead and wander the earth in search for some guidance too. The materialistic society we live in has taken its toll on our belief systems. Many people, these days, don’t even believe in the existence of their own spirit, let alone in the existence of other spirits from other planes of existence. Nevertheless, they are still there, trying to reach out to communicate with us and sending us subtle messages.
Who are the Angels?
In this article we will focus on the positive spirits most people refer to as angels. Angels are all around us, it is said that each of us is given a guardian angel, when we are born, who looks after us our whole life. It is also believed there are more angels around you besides your guardian angel; I personally believe this to be true. I think there are positive light entities all around us trying to protect us. Think about a time when a situation could have gone very bad in so many ways yet you still had that “good luck” and somehow got out of it alright. That was most definitely an angel protecting you for your purpose here was not yet fulfilled so it was not your time to leave this existence yet.
Angels Reaching Out to Us
Angels are pure, light beings that just want to help us and point us in the right direction. For example, you know how, when you have to make a decision, weird synchronicities can start to happen to show you the right way. Also, I assume you have noticed that dim, not loud, almost like a whisper, voice, in your mind, that is always telling you to do the right thing. That is also a way by which angels are sending you messages. You may be receiving an angelic message through your thoughts, and yet remain completely unaware that your thoughts originate from a higher spiritual being and are not from your own consciousness. If you live very conscious and pay attention to your surroundings you will realize that messages are being sent to you almost all the time. Your part is to make sure you are open enough to receive and wise enough to understand them.
There are different ways in which angels are trying to reach out to you. You can receive very clear messages in form of packed thought-forms (frequency transmissions and higher consciousness thought transmissions ) if you raise your vibration high enough to be able to connect to the angels. This is the highest form of transmission you can receive from an angel. To manage to do this you have to center your awareness within, tuning into the divine core within you, completely silencing your mind and freeing yourself from earthly ego. If you are asking yourself how to do this, then the next part of this article is for you. Below is some advice to help clear your mind and bring your awareness to the present moment and guide it within.
Tuning In to the Angelic Messages
Meditation is key. A daily meditation practice does wonders for your level of awareness and your spiritual connection with the higher vibrational beings. At first, if you are a busy person, like most people today, you can try to start at just 15 minutes every day. After a week you will surely see the results. If you are new to meditating, just try sitting in an up straight position (your spine should be straight but you shouldn’t be too tight, try to relax all the parts of the body that you can) then start to focus on your breath, feel the breath going in and out. With each inhale you draw your attention inwards, trying to focus on your heart center, and with each exhale you feel your mind-expanding and releasing any negativity stored within. If meditating on your own doesn’t work at first, you needn’t get discouraged, it is hard at first to silence the mind. If this is your case, I highly recommend you to start with a guided meditation to calm your mind and relax.
The Practice of Yoga
Yoga is one of the best and most complete spiritual practices. If, when you hear the word yoga, you just imagine some weird positions you’ll never be able to do, I’m here to tell you that Yoga is truly so much more and it can be of great help. The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit word “yoke” which literally means union. So yoga is the practice of uniting your mind, body, and spirit through physical exercise accompanied by breath work (“pranayama”), keeping the right attitude, and making the right lifestyle choices. Yoga also helps you unite with the higher vibrational realms, making it significantly easier for you to receive and understand divine messages.
Be grateful. Try to start a practice of giving thanks when you wake up and before you go to sleep, give thanks for everything you got, even the simplest things. Also give thanks for the earth, the air you breathe, the water you drink, the nature that gives you everything you need to survive. Being grateful for even the smallest of things brings a great positive change in your vibrational field so make sure you make a regular practice of showing gratitude.
Taking Care of Your Body
You have probably heard the saying that your body is your temple before. Our bodies are the vehicles for our souls. If we don’t nurture and properly care for our body then our soul can never be truly happy and we cannot live a spiritually fulfilling life. To best take care of your body, you should pay special attention to what you consume. Stop eating meat or at least try to reduce it as much as you can. Meat-eating is one of the things that negatively affect your vibrational field the most. All the negative emotions that the animal felt during his life, up to the point it is killed in fear, get absorbed by you when you consume its dead body. There are so many plant-based foods that are highly nutritious and that raise your vibration, especially when eaten raw, so you can renounce the meat with no negative physical consequences.
Being Constantly Conscious
Being conscious and aware of your spiritual practices is probably the most important aspect of spiritual growth. It is not enough to meditate or do a yoga session and then go back to your normal society day to day living. All spiritual practices are a means for you to get into a higher vibrational state and keep that state for as long as you can. The final goal would be to be in that state all the time, but this takes time and a lot of practice, so don’t get discouraged if you see yourself falling back into old bad habits, just take a breath in and out and release any toxic energy. It is vital to accept the point in which you are while striving to be better because you will, it just takes time to unlearn years of inappropriate mindsets and false beliefs.
In conclusion, I just want to say that your angels are always there for you, they care for you and always want to help you. All you need to do is put in a little effort to raise your vibration and live a spiritually fulfilling life rather than a materialistic one.
