How to Ask for Help and Guidance from the Angels

Updated on April 18, 2016

Jo's Angel

Guardian Angels ...

People are asking “Should I change careers? Should I move? Should I leave my relationship, get married, change my name etc etc?” More and more people are questioning themselves as we are all living in a time of great personal and global change.

To help us with our choices we are able to enlist the help of the angels. Our angels want us to know that these changes are inevitable, and the key to enjoying and making the most of these changes is to be flexible.

Change can often seem frightening due to our own uncertainties and fears. With our choices we face uncertain factors such as “will this make me happy, more confident, competent and successful – or will I fail miserably and land in a heap?” or “how will this change affect others? Will they still love me, will they be happy, sad or disappointed in me?” The list of unknown fears and factors goes on ...

Our angels are able to assist us with all of our important and not-so-important choices. From their elevated perspectives, angels are able to know what’s the best for our highest good and to see to see contributing factors. They are able to make the variables known to us to help us make our choices. Our angels CANNOT make our decisions and choices for us, but rather, they will function like trusted advisors for us.

Allowing Our Angels to Help Us

· Create a quiet space for yourself where you are not likely to be disturbed.

· Hold the intention of connection with your guardian angels in order to glean guidance with your decision making. By holding this intention we give our angels permission to intervene and assist.

· Feel free to tell your angels about anything and everything you are feeling or are confused or concerned about. Trust and know that your angels are listening, always. Our angels already know our fears and foibles, our dramas, dilemmas and day to day decisions, and they stand by lovingly guiding us as best they can, all the while respecting our ‘free will’. Asking our angels to intercede in order to aid, guide and assist us is our personal responsibility.

· Ask your angels for help, guidance and assistance with any specific life scenario or issue that you are considering making changes to. When you are feeling ready, ask your angels a question such as “what changes should I make which would be most beneficial to my life?” or “which decision suits the situation best?”

· Take notice of the thoughts and feelings that come up in response to your question/s. These feelings and thoughts will give you clear indications as to which direction to take.

· Divine guidance may come in the form of certain ideas, thoughts and/or motivation towards a particular action. These are promptings from your angels and can be seen as answers or signposts.

· Don’t pay too much attention trying to figure out ‘how’ your request will be answered. Just trust that they will in divine right time and order. The Universe has an abundance of miraculous solutions available to us. All we need to do is ‘asked’ and the ‘accept’.

· Another method to use when making choices us to ask your angels to show you the future outcomes of your options. This can be particularly helpful when there are several options to choose from. Again, create a quiet space, then allow yourself to fully imagine that you have chosen the first option. Take the time to really feel and live in that experience. What are you’re emotions telling you? Are you excited, fearful, enthusiastic or horrified? Analyse your thoughts and ‘gut feelings’ thoroughly. Then go on to the second option, then the third, forth and so on, each time fully experiencing your emotions and thoughts. Trust your intuition and your inner knowledge to guide you, as your angels are whispering advice and directions to your constantly.

· If you are still in need of guidance and clarity from your angels, hold the intention to connect with them and your higher self. Ask which way takes you closer to your divine life purpose (if even you are unsure of exactly what that may be ...) Ask which option is for the highest good. Again, listen and take note of any impressions, feelings, thoughts and even direct words. And yet again, trust your intuition.

Tuning-in to and communicating with your guardian angels can be done at anytime and anywhere you wish. The angels wait for us to ask for their help and guidance, and revel in the opportunity to assist us, with unconditional love.

      Hi Light is Love,

      I have met my spirit guides many times during meditation and channeling ... one is shown as a 45 year old-ish male energy name 'Josef' and the other is 'Helly' .. a 7 year old girl who resided in the 1700's. I am aware though of other energies, entities, guides and angels around me, given differing circumstances.

      Be blessed along your path Light is Love.

      PsychicJoanne: I love the space that is created with each of your hubs. There is such a loving and peaceful presence that I sense while reading your explanations.

      Madam Joanne, your wisdom is a confirmation of my earlier experience with my guardian angel who lovingly forewarned and protected me from a falling lamp post right in front of my pathway one Sunday morning. I even felt the warm overpowering caring energy covering my body in that cold September morning. I just felt happy and comforted when this "LIGHT" or energy went into my head going down my spline until it reaches my feet. Then, i walk past the fallen lamp post with thankfulness in my heart to the one who did this deed. May the good LORD bless you always.

      Your hub is really beautiful.VoTED UP!i'm curios to one thing.One day i asked a question and asked for a sign from my angel as an answer to my qustion.After a week or two, my friend saw a feather and brought it to me.The feather was brown with white mixed.It felt like the feather was meant for me.Does this also mean that my angel gave me a signal?

    • PsychicJoanne profile image

      Joanne Sacred Scribes 4 years ago from Victoria, Australia

      Absolutely jirel! Feathers are messages and signs, and white suggests the energy of angels and positive energies, and brown suggests nature, grounding, practicality and being 'down to earth'.



    • Joanne 4 years ago

      Hi Joanne, can you help me believing in Angels, there are thousands around me and I run away from their messages all the time.

    • PsychicJoanne profile image

      Joanne Sacred Scribes 4 years ago from Victoria, Australia

      Listen to your intuition Joanne in order to 'hear' the messages from your angels, and you will never be led astray. Faith and trust is the key.



    • anne91 4 years ago

      wonderfully written joanne..i want to see my guardian angel too.what i have to do for that?

    • PsychicJoanne profile image

      Joanne Sacred Scribes 4 years ago from Victoria, Australia

      Hi anne91, thanks for your comment and question. Often during meditation, if you ask, your guardian angel may present themselves to you. If not the very first time, keep at it and eventually you will be shown an image or two.



    • trihumanish 4 years ago

      I have been having dreams where there is someone or some "character" standing behind the right side of me telling me things such as info on some nerve ending...and something about codes. Could that possibly be a guardian angel? The dreams started early this year, by the way.

    • PsychicJoanne profile image

      Joanne Sacred Scribes 4 years ago from Victoria, Australia

      Yes, it can absolutely be your spirit guides, angels, guardian angels and/or passed over loved ones bringing you messages in your dreams.



    • trihumanish 4 years ago

      Thanks Joanne. Is there some way to find out if it is a spirit guide or angel or guardian angel and is there any importance in differentiating between them? I am relatively new to this subject.

    • PsychicJoanne profile image

      Joanne Sacred Scribes 4 years ago from Victoria, Australia

      It is different for every person and circumstance ... but often you can intuitively 'ask' who it is (angel/guide/spirit etc) and you may get an answer straight away or in time. With practice you may be able to differentiate between the energies as you become familiar with them. The importance is that you receive the message, whatever it may be.


    • trihumanish 4 years ago

      Thanks Joanne. I will keep that in mind. :)

    • Heather 4 years ago

      Hi Joanne, I have sensed my angels and guardian spirits around me all my life. My question pertains to my fear. I am worried that if I open a channel to the presences that I feel I will channel a negative spirit with ill intentions. I always call upon Archangel Michael to surround me in his protective armour only letting in the light and love of Holy Spirit before I start a meditation, but I'm more referring to sensing presences or when I feel I'm being watched. Is this a necessary concern? I've been putting out a request to the universe for a guide or teacher on the physical plane someone to help guide me in this area until I feel comfortable with understanding the nature of different presences. I refer to your index guide daily as I constantly see repeating number combinations, the messages have helped so thank you kindly for the dedication you put into enlightening others.

      God bless,

      Can my angels communicate with me in concrete way, to let me know they hear me? ie making light bulbs or other electronic devices go on and off?

    • PsychicJoanne profile image

      Joanne Sacred Scribes 3 years ago from Victoria, Australia

      Absolutely Mark ... look for the signs and you will see them and know them ;)



    • SurroundedByAngels 3 years ago

      Hi Joanne, me and my husband have been contemplating moving to Australia, but are still very confused whether it would be the right thing for us to do. I have been seeing repeating 3s (3, 33, 333, 3333) everywhere lately. I saw their meaning on your blog and it guided me to call upon the angels and ascended masters. I did the same. After that I followed a link to this page and the first thing I saw was an ad saying - Australia is waiting for you! My heart just skipped a beat! Can this be really a message, or am I reading too much into it?

    • Gemini1969 3 years ago

      Thank you, thank you for passing messages of faith and spirituality. I so needed to hear all that you have posted. Interesting enough I have been going through a lot of changes in my life and this morning when I woke up my instinct led me to your teachings. I have been visited by one of my angels, she's an old woman, it was more like a vision...AMAZING!!!!

    • mylissa 2 years ago

      Thanks you for the positive work, through your efforts in creating this page!

      It is one thing to be surrounded by energies/angels.

      It's another thing to feel connected to the energies/angels.

      And then it is a totally New Level, to be able to HARNESS those BLESSED GIFTS, and to BELIEVE in them, and to most of all BELIEVE in YOURSELF, so that you can then set out to fulfill your life's purpose and create a life-altering-webpage.... like you have done right here, Joanne !

      Thanks Joanne for motivating me through a learning chapter within this lifetime and for also mentoring my direction so that i can fulfil my life's purpose in this lifetime...... i was starting to fall off the tracks.

      With much love, Mylissa

      P.S. Thank you Jay for sharing this lifetime gift with me. I will always be appreciative.

      Luv you, my brother from another mother!

I AM faced with the lack of confidence & will to exercise my gifts & skills for a living (financially). Intellectually/emotionally, I can identify the blocks from past experiences but get stuck there. Any innersight or suggestions would be a true lifesaver. When I AM out of alignment with purpose & spirit, my wounded self takes over with distraction, then depression ; back down that hill.

      What a wonderful hub Joanne on how to contact our guardian angels. (I hate when other people spam it with their own information to comment IMO.) Real useful and inspiring. Voted up!
