Angels are beings of pure spirituality. Below is a good summary explaining how angels differ from other celestial helpers and God.The power of The Angels*
Although the angel is only one spiritual being among the entire heavenly host, and merely one creature in all of Creation, it has no limitations of any kind upon its powers and abilities. This is for the simple reason that their entire existences of having the capacity to fulfill all tasks given to it are derived from God. One should not think, however, that because their powers come from a source outside themselves angels are weak and feeble. On the contrary, because angels' strength comes directly from God it is beyond compare and has no equal anywhere in the universe. Such a conception of angelic power helps to stress the close relationship between angels and God and the degree to which they are different from humanity.
* Based on writings in the book, Angels A-Z , by Matthew Bunson.The Nine Choirs of Angels
Angels are divided into different groups, each with their own purpose for existence. In turn, each individual angel, including your own guardian angel, has its own specialties. Most angels seem to belong to one or more of the hierarchies in the table below. The choirs below are the most widely accepted. As you will see in the table below, angels are not limited to belonging to just one choir.
The highest of the nine angelic orders brings the healing flame of love from heaven to earth and are often identified with fire.
Michael, Metatron, Sepheriel, Seraphiel and Uriel
Cherubs emanate the love of God and possess knowledge and wisdom.
Gabrielle/Gabriel, Ophaniel, Raphael, Uriel and Zophiel
Thrones emulate the light of God with brilliant fairness and honesty.
Jophiel, Orifiel, Raziel and Zaphkiel
Dominations regulate the tasks of the angels maintaining the order of the universe.
Hashmal, Muriel, Zadkiel and Zacharel
The Virtues preside over nature and every facet of natural life. They give us the strength to always turn to God.
Gabrielle/Gabriel, Michael, peliel, Sabriel, Tarshish and Uzziel
The powers defend the universe from evil keeping order and stability.
Camael, Gabrielle/Gabriel, Galgaliel, Michael, Raphael and Verchiel
These are the caretakers, or guardian angels of nations, provinces, counties, districts, cities, towns, villages, buildings and houses. Unlike personal protectors they have direct involvement in the affairs of all humanity. In light of world events, ask for the intervention of The principalities.
Amael, Anael, Cerviel and Haniel
This is a confusing order because most of the members also belong to other choirs. Their primary function is to intervene consistently in the affair of each and every life.
Barachiel, Gabrielle/Gabriel, Jehudiel, Metatron, Michael, Raphael and Uriel
The ninth and final order of angels according to the organization of celestial hierarchy. These angels are the closest to humanity and its labors and concerns. Most guardian angels belong to this order.
Chayyliel, phalag, Adnachiel

Before trying the meditations with the Archangels, it's helpful if you are familiar with the chakras and that they are cleared and balanced. Go to the webpage on Chakras for more information. Here's the meditation to balance and clear the chakras .
Guardian angels are assigned not only to every living human soul but to all the inhabitants of earth. They know exactly what you need for your development, your divine life purpose and your agenda is their agenda. Guardian angels NEVER leave your side from birth through death no matter what mistakes you make. Like God/dess, they love you no matter what. Everyone, even the most negative people you can think of, Charles Manson, Saddam Hussain, Adolf Hitler, all have (or had) guardian angels throughout their lives. However, when humans incarnate on earth, we come down here with no memories of what we are and where we came from. We are given freedom of choice. Our guardian angels can give us guidance and love but it is our free choice whether we listen to it or not. As you can imagine, often times, negative people dont listen to their guardian angels.How You Can Connect with Your Angels
You must ask your guardian angels for help even though theyre permanently stationed by your side. Angels want to surround us but cant help us unless we ask. A universal law that binds angels states, No angels shall interfere with a humans life unless asked with the sole exception being a life-threatening emergency.
Invite your angel to work with you. Welcome your angel so it's easier for you to work together. This will create great value in your life. Your angel is not a fairy godmother or a "cosmic vending machine." They can, however, help us in many ways that are often overlooked as coincidences.How do Angels Communicate with Us
Angels Help mostly by by communicating directly if you are able to receive or indirectly with omens (i.e. a book they feel you should read may fall off a shelf in your path for example). Out of nowhere, you may suddenly have a desire to contact someone or go somewhere. They can also send information in dreams and as compressed energy that unfolds over timeyoull have a knowing but wont be able to verbalize it or explain it for a while as the pieces of the puzzle come together. They can also send you very high-level healing energies and healing. If you are able to feel subtle energies you may feel this as warmth or tingling pulses of energy moving through your body.
After asking your angel for assistance, watch for repetition of words you see, hear or think. Notice patterns like repeatedly hearing a song, seeing a bumper sticker or having a friend unknowingly repeat the very same message your angel gave you. Keep asking until you feel you completely understand the answer.Beginning to Contact Your Angels
The following suggestions may help you in making initial contact with your angels.
Choose a regular time each day to communicate to your guardian angels. Before going to sleep or when you first wake up may be the best time.
If you have depression, negative feelings, fear, nightmaresask your guardian angels for extra protection.
Remain open to messages from your angel at all times. Especially when you sense a warning that you are making a mistake or a prickly feeling of danger.
Dont be irresponsible and risk your personal safety. Your guardian angel cant override your free will.
Be positive! Your angel will guide, heal and protect you but you must be responsible for your own actions. Dont dismiss your problems in your life as something is against you or curses.
Angels vibrate at a very high level and it may take a while to attune yourself to this high vibration. Be patient! The most common blocks to getting angelic guidance are:
Diet (meat, caffeine, shellfish, most junk food, prepackaged foods that contain chemical additives and preservatives and chocolate are all low vibration foods that can block divine guidance)
Drugs (even over the counter products) and alcohol can cloud clarity.
Negative people Make changes where you can in your own life and try to avoid negative people. If you can't because of your circumstances, it may take you longer to connect but keep trying, eventually you'll be able to tune into the higher vibrations.
Drama Whether the chaos is yours or originates from others in your life, it can make you distracted and agitated which adds to the difficulty of connecting with angels. Ask your angels to clear away all negativity and fear and fill you with the energies of peace and love.
Disorganization Angels are attracted to clean, organized, quiet atmospheres. provide a welcoming atmosphere to appeal to angels.
Inexperience If you havent done a lot of spiritual work or find it hard to relax and quiet your mind, be patient and realistic with your expectations. Try to increase your awareness of angels by heightening your all your senses and meditating regularly.
It can take days, weeks even months to receive an answer you fully understand. And sometimes, the answer comes through an event or moment of sudden insight. It may come to you unexpectedly during a casual phone call from a friend, something you read in a book, newspaper or magazine, from a conversation between strangers you inadvertently overheard. The main thing is to be aware and open.
patience will allow you to persevere, even if you do not get results right away. patience will help you build faith in your Angels, trusting that at the right time they will come through. Faith endears you to your unseen supporters, as well as creating the space for miracles, which is where they gather and thrive. Miracles do not have to be earth shattering. Miracles can be tiny happenings in your daily life that make you feel good or that make you laugh or even cry from happiness.
The power of Asking
Angels, and this includes our own and others' guardian angels, can do nothing for us unless we ask. If you need help, just ask! That's why God sent angels to be with you for life. Your angels are just waiting to be asked for help. Don't worry about asking for too much. There is no sense of linear time in the spiritual realm. Have you ever been driving somewhere and all of a sudden had an urge to make a turn you didn't plan on and then later found out there was a bad traffic jam you avoided by listening to that urge and turning off the road That's your guardian angels assisting you. Don't forget to thank them when you notice the correlation.Working with Others' Guardian Angels
You can also ask others' guardian angels for help or assistance. If someone, say your boss or a coworker, is making life more difficult than you think is fair, ask their guardian angel to have them be nicer to you or leave you alone altogether. If you are having problems with a loved one, plead your case to their guardian angel and ask for their help to bring peace into the situation. Others' guardian angels are willing to help as long as our requests are positive and won't hurt the one they are to protect. If it's a big issue, write a letter to the person's guardian angels asking for help. It may sound bizarre but works.
One day I was at the beach with a close friend and her son who was very sick with cancer at the time. Her son was so weak he barely had the strength to walk but wanted to go to the beach that day. He looked longingly at the swings and said, "I'd like to go on the swings Mom." My friend looked up the hill at the swings and saw a group of sulky young teens there. She tried to convince her son that it wasn't a good idea. But I said, "Wait, let me ask their guardian angels to tell them to leave that area." You see, earlier that day I had told her about asking other's guardian angels for assistance. I had learned this from Doreen Virtue at her ATp course and found the results amazing. Of course, she gave me a skeptical look when I told her. Who could blame her So I asked the teens' guardian angels to have them leave that area so Chris could go on the swings for a few minutes. She was amazed when less than 30 seconds later they all got up and walked to a different part of the park. And she was even more amazed when, while we were walking up the hill, two more teens came into the park and started walking toward the swings. I asked their guardian angels to have them leave too. Both boys, at the same time, got a confused look on their face and turned around and walked out of the park (without even saying anything to each other!). My friend never again doubted the power of guardian angels after that event.
Of course, I must add this won't always work. It needs to be for the highest good for the ones the angels guard.
Before trying this meditation, it's helpful to be familiar with the chakras and assure they are cleared and balanced. Go to the webpage on Chakras for more information. Here's the meditation to balance and clear the chakras .
The following prayer should be spoken, mentally or aloud before making contact with your angels. You should change it so its one you feel comfortable saying.
God/dess, Holy Spirit, Jesus, Archangel Michael and the angels
(and/or QuanYin, Mohammed, Moses, St.Germain, Mother Mary, Father Wind, Mother Earth, a specific Goddess, Saint or Master. Substitute your preference for a devotional figure)
I ask your protection and help in giving me detailed information from my guardian angels that will help me attain my highest purpose and joy. please protect me from all fear and negativity and assure that who I intend comes through as a clear channel for the light.
Thank you so much for your love and assistance.
Sit in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. place both feet on the ground and begin to mentally prepare for you meditation. Begin by grounding and centering yourself. Close your eyes and imagining roots growing from your feet into Mother Earth. Then follow this simple breathing exercise to relax your physical body: breathe in through your nose, hold it for 7 seconds, and release it very slowly through your mouth. Repeat 3 times then unconsciously continue breathing this way throughout the meditation. Tell your Ego-self to move toward your left shoulder. Let the Ego-self know that its only an observer during the clearing and know this is so. Ask your Angels, Guides and all that you desire to accompany you on this meditation now.
Ask The Creator to send down a beam of protective white light. The Creator hears your request and in your minds eye you can immediately envision a beam of light coming down from the universe. Watch it surround you in a protective glow.
Now i magine yourself in a beautiful place, it can be a forest, a meadow, a beach, wherever you will feel comfortable. Find a comfortable spot in this beautiful place to rest and relax.
Now, in your mind's eye, look around you, and notice a path. It is a beautiful path filled with love. This path is very long; it seems to go on and onyou cant see the end of it. Keep your focus on this path.
Mentally ask for your Guardian Angel to come forth. Express your interest in wanting to meet him/her. See an illuminated ball of light in the distance.
It may be white or may be a color. Notice the color you see. See it slowly coming closer and closer becoming aware that the light is getting larger as it comes closer to you.
Your Angel may decide to make itself known in another form. Just let this happen. Note what the light looks like as it come closer
Now your angel is directly in front of you. There may be more than one as your other angels, guides, relatives and pets may want to connect with you.
Greet your angel. You may get impressions, emotions, and tingly feelings. Its not uncommon for Angels to talk to you in your own voice, so dont discount your inner voice as your imagination. Feelings of love, encouragement and warmth are most common markers of Angelic contact.
Thank your Angel for all the times that they have helped you, comforted you and protected you.
Mentally invite the intervention, guidance and assistance of your Angel in your life from this point onwards.
Ask your angel the name they wish to be called. Angels true names are unpronounceable by us. They will either make up a name or let you choose one. If you dont get one right away, don't worry. You may get a color or a musical note, every contact is different. Just know that whatever you receive is correct for you.
Ask your angel to communicate any messages to you. Absorb any communication such as thoughts, visions, knowingness and feelings, love and emotions.
Ask your angel any questions you have, one at a time. Note the answers. Dont doubt the information or emotions you are given, just let your angel communicate to you in their own way.
Now say the following prayer to your guardian angel:
Angel of God, my guardian dear
To whom Gods love commits me here
Ever this day, be at my side
To light and guide,
To rule and guard,
Now ask the Creator to bless you and your Angel. See the both of you showered by the Light and Love from the Divine
Thank your Angel for meeting you in this meditation. Let your angel know you look forward to contacting them again soon
Know they are always by your side.
Focus on grounding and centering yourself by picturing the roots from your feet into Mother Earth.
pause a moment and open your eyes.
