A friend of mine had a life changing experience. When he saw an angel, he told me it terrified him at first, “It was huge, ten feet tall, and looked just like a person, except for its glistening wings. ~Spirit guides & Angel Guardians, Richard Webster
The shift towards higher consciousness gives us the opportunity to connect with higher realms or the universal divine energy. This energy can be felt or received through angels or spirit guides.
Several cultures, literature and religions have mentioned the presence of these pure beings of light who offer guidance, protection, healing, and comfort. Angels are endowed with the task to aid & protect humans in their needs and deliver divine messages through whisper, dreams, inner voice and intuition.
We might interpret this energy in different ways and is largely dependent on what you believe and what resonates with you.
Archangels & Angel meditation
The archangels have the power to be omnipresent. In order to receive their help, we have to reach out to them and request them for their aid. You must be centered, clear of any judgement and truly believe and accept their presence. They appear when they are called upon lovingly and patiently.
My experience with angel meditation has been very soothing, full of warmth, and calming. After a while of practice, I could hear them whisper in my ears. The kind of ease you will feel in your life, once you do this meditation can only be experienced.
Locate a place of silence and add light music, candles, crystals if you like. Lie down and focus your attention on breathing for a couple of minutes. Once your breathing is steady, try to relax your body completely and focus on the angel(s) in mind and call upon them.
Here are some of the archangels and their specialties:
The most revered of archangels in many scriptures and spiritual traditions, Michael has traditionally been called to free a person from evil spirits. He appears in art with a sword in hand, battling Satan himself. Michael translates to “who is like god.”
Michael is the epitome of strength and valor. He guides us away from fear and you can call on him for protection and courage to make the changes necessary to grow on our path. He also helps us in recognizing our true purpose in life.
Call upon him whenever you want to dispel negative energy and cleanse your aura. Also, if you feel fearful in any situation or lack motivation in any task, you can ask for his guidance.

He’s wonderful to call upon whenever you need a solution, such as at business meetings, when writing, while studying, or when taking a test.
