Guardian Angels Part 1: Do You Have A Guardian Angel? + How To Connect

A few weeks ago I was on the road, sitting in the passenger's seat while my mom was driving the car. As we stopped in front of a traffic light, I suddenly got a strong urge to ask my guardian angel for protection. I didn't know why, but I knew it was important and I'd better do it.

Some time after we started driving again, I was rudely awakened from my daydreaming by my mom's agitation over the recklessness of another driver. The car that passed us by swayed dangerously from side to side. The driver was clearly drunk, but passed us by without any harm. Immediately I understood that this is why I had the urge to pray. I thanked my guardian angel, knowing that I had been protected by them yet again.

Each of us has a guardian angel. You have one, too, though you might never have noticed them. They have been by your side since you were born, through the good times and the bad. For all your life, they have been trying to guide you to the best of their ability, patiently waiting for you to notice them.

You guardian angel has been assigned to you before you came this planet, to watch over your soul. They hover around you, softly whispering guidance in your ear to improve your life. They love you unconditionally, more than you can even imagine. No matter how badly you may mess up, they will never stop loving you.

Some people can see guardian angels. Angels don’t have a material body like ours, but they are just like beautiful, strong energy beings. Therefore, they choose to appear to humans who can see them in any way they can understand.

Sometimes they appear to have wings, other times they don’t. Sometimes they look human, sometimes they look like a very bright light. There is, however, something that is always the same: when seeing their guardian angel, humans feel completely safe and loved.

Your smile is the most beautiful sight in the universe to your guardian angel. Therefore, they always want to make you happy and help you. However, they are only allowed to help you when you ask. Before you went to the earth, they made a promise to you: they would always stay by your side to guide you, but they would never break your free will.

This means that they can never make any big changes to your life unless you ask them to. In other words: no matter how much they want to help you, if you don’t ask them, they just can’t!

However, when you invite them into your life, they will not let you down. They will guide you in every decision you make and present you with opportunities to improve your life. All you need to do is open your heart and ask.

The fact that you are reading this blog post and did not click away might be an indication that the timing is right for you to start connecting with your guardian angel now. In fact, it’s highly possible that your guardian angel guided you to read this!

Maybe you do not believe everything I have written so far. Maybe you don’t really believe that there is an angel with you. That is completely okay. To be honest, when I first read about angels, I didn’t believe in them either. It just sounded too beautiful to be true! But let me tell you, I have been proven wrong.

Having said that, there’s a way to test this for yourself. All you need to do is ask. Just ask your guardian angel for a sign. Don’t worry too much about what this sign should be. If you want, you can use the following prayer:

You don’t necessarily need a formal prayer though, just asking in any way is enough. Then just let it go. Just stop thinking about it. I promise you that your angel is overjoyed that you’re finally allowing them to help, and they will definitely send you a sign. Don’t worry about how it will happen.

When I first started reading a book about angels, like I said, it seemed to good to be true. Yet one evening, as I was reading the book, a double rainbow appeared in the sky. It was really beautiful and it stayed in the sky for at least 15 minutes. It seemed unusual, but nothing special.

Yet the next day, exactly when I was reading the angel book, a double rainbow appeared yet again! It stayed in the sky just as long. At that moment, though I didn't yet know that rainbows were a sign of angels, I was ready to pay attention.

After that, I started finding feathers EVERYWHERE. When I went to the garden feathers would lie in front of the door. On the streets I walked there would be more feathers than usual. When I parked my bike somewhere, there would be a feather next to it when I came back. After those few weeks, I've never found this many feathers again all at once. It was a magical time for me.

When asking for a sign, you can choose something specific, like an animal that you love or a song, or you can leave it to your angel. They are very inventive: they will make sure it’s something out of the ordinary that will blow your mind. Below is a list of signs that angels will often send.

Once you have opened up to the possibility of having a guardian angel, you can ask them to guide you through all your days. Just ask them in the morning, or any time at all, to send you guidance that will improve your life. They’ll be more than happy to do so.

Then, during the rest of the day, pay attention to your thoughts and feelings. This is generally how a guardian angel sends you information. It’s sometimes also called your intuition. To tap into your intuition, when you make a decision, ask yourself how you feel about it.

Do you get a peaceful, happy feeling? Then your guardian angel is most likely letting you know it’s a good decision. Do you get feel a weird feeling in your stomach, or you mentally feel like you’re being pushed away from something? Often this will be your guardian angel warning you for something, or telling you to stay away from it.

Your guardian angel will also start sending you ideas. They will appear in your mind like a normal thought, but feel slightly different. They will feel calmer, more beautiful, and more peaceful. Often, these angelic ideas will come back time and time again. You will know that it comes from your guardian angel, when it’s something that you can help other people with, for in the end that is what brings true happiness.

It might take some time to distinguish angelic guidance from your normal thoughts. But the more often you pay attention to it, the easier it will get. The most important part is that you’re willing to listen: then you will surely start receiving some messages! It is your guardian angel’s deepest wish to connect with you.

To prevent this post about guardian angels from getting too long, I have made it part of a series. Part 2 will discuss ways to ask your guardian angel for help. Part 3 will go into more detail about how to hear your guardian angel: how can you tell if your guardian angel’s telling you something, or it’s just your own mind?

If you have any questions about guardian angels right now, please look forward to the next blog posts in the series. It is very likely that I will answer your questions there. Until that time, you are of course completely free to ask your question in a comment!

I really enjoyed writing this post, because learning about my guardian angel has improved my life so much. I sincerely hope that this post has opened your mind to the existence of your very own guardian angel, if even just a little.

Do you believe in angels? And have you received the sign you asked for?

Wishing you a magical and joyful week,
