Ask an Angel . . .
Receiving Help from Your Angels
By Christopher James Dilts



The room you are in is filled with Angels!

The next room you go to will be filled with Angels, and Angels will be at your side with every step you take today. The Angels are with us and are eager to help us.

How do I know that? That's my specialty - I am an author, workshop leader and Ordained Non-Denominational Minister whose specialty is Angels. For the past 15 years I have been helping people connect more deeply with their Angels for help and assistance.

Angels are truly universal. The Pew Spirituality in American Life Project reported that 72% of us believe in them, which is a much higher percentage than Americans who believe in any established religion.

Angels are fundamental to all the world's major religions. We find them in Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, and many other spiritual traditions. The majority of the people in the world follow a spiritual tradition that includes loving, helpful Angels.

Accounts of Angels, what they do, and how they are perceived, are universal across all major religions: from the Old to the New Testament, from the Vedas to the Koran. Angels are a universal human experience.

They bring messages of a higher order of loving consciousness to us; messages that help us to realize that we are not alone, that we need not be afraid, and that call us to rise to the best of our abilities to help one another.

St. Augustine, an authority on Angels, said, "Make friends with Angels." He recommended that we make personal relationships with Angels and that we let our relationships with them deepen.

The message of the Angels is consistent across all cultures and all times: the Angels are here to help us. It's their only reason for being. All the world's major religions speak to this: the Angels were created to care for mankind.

St. Thomas Aquinas said, "Angels transcend every religion, every philosophy, every creed. In fact Angels have no religion as we know it... Their existence precedes every religious system that has existed on Earth.

"What is an Angel?
Angels are the expressions of God's loving care for us. Angels serve very specific purposes, very much in the same way that professionals who work with us provide us with specific skills and expertise.

They are the individuated aspects of God's love for us. Each Angel embodies a specific quality that we experience - Peace, Love, Courage, Strength and Truth are a few of the thousands of qualities Angels bring to us.

Angels specialize in every quality that we can experience - they amplify and strengthen our ability to maintain these helpful qualities when we need them.

What can we do to receive their help?
Our part is learning to be receptive to our Angels and accept their help as it is offered to us.

We learn to trust their assistance and accept their guidance. Angels know us completely and intimately. They know every step we have taken, our every thought, word and action - and they offer us help unconditionally at all times.

Everyone has an Angel story. In a recent workshop I taught a 2-3 minute process that anyone can do at anytime. Bedtime is an especially good time for this: simply to hand everything over to your Angels for the night. Every problem, worry or concern, as well as every intention, plan and dream we hold dear.

Place everything in their loving hands and let them carry it for the night. This is a powerful way of practicing the wisdom of "letting go and lettingGod." Our part in this is simple, but is not necessarily easy until we have practiced it. Our part is to truly let go for a time.

You don't have to believe in Angels to receive their help! Continue asking for their help for at least 21 days and carefully note the results. Note also how your perceptions shift. Note how your attention shifts to seeing the results of your requests in new ways.

Angels are always with us and are eager to help us. They are loving and supportive partners in all of our endeavors. They help us to reach beyond our fears to our highest and best expressions of ourselves. It truly is as simple as asking for their help.
