Have you ever had a stroke of luck, near miss, or sudden burst of insight? These are just a few ways our guardian angels talk to us. But guardian angels aren’t just our once-in-awhile protectors and guides; they are always there to help us when we need it most. A wonderful way of asking for your angel’s help is by first learning his or her name.
There is so much power in a name. If you’ve researched your own name or specially chosen one for a child or pet, then you already know how important and meaningful it is. Even though our guardian angels are always available to us, learning their names is a fast and easy way to get their attention in our times of need. Knowing our angel’s name is the first step in developing a relationship with him or her that can provide us with blessed security, comfort, and protection.
So go ahead—find out your guardian angel’s name and introduce yourself!
Start by finding a calm, comfortable place where you won’t be disturbed.
Try a peaceful clearing or meadow, or even your bedroom or office when you have some time alone.
Sit comfortably and take a few minutes to really relax.
Make sure you’re wearing comfy clothing that lets you breathe and doesn’t distract you. Go ahead and take off any belts, jewelry, or other items that could get in your way. Place your feet on the ground and sit up straight, but not too rigid.
Spend just a few minutes letting the business of the day melt away, and focus on your breath. Relax your face, neck, shoulders, hands, and anywhere else you feel tension. Imagine you’re breathing in only good things and letting go of what you no longer need with each exhale. Let your breath out as a sigh of relief until you feel calm and serene.
Start to count your inhales.
Count each breath in until you reach twenty.
Ask your guardian angel his or her name.
At breath number twenty, simply ask your guardian angel what his or her name is. You can ask with your heart or out loud; do whatever feels right in the moment.
Your answer can come in any number of ways, but be patient until you know you’ve received it. The name may come as a thought, a voice you hear in your mind, a mental image, a sound, or even a feeling. The important part is to pay attention to the message received. If you feel that you’re not getting a message, just ask your angel to speak up a little so you can hear better.
Your guardian angel’s name is unique to you, so don’t be surprised if it’s not what you’re expecting, or not even a typical name at all. Accept the response that you get to your question and know that if it feels true, it is. If you aren’t confident you received your angel’s name correctly, simply ask him or her to provide a few signs here and there. You’ll start to notice little hints that will confirm your guardian angel’s name for you.
Developing a beautiful relationship with your guardian angel is simple — and it starts with learning his or her name. All you need to do is ask - so try it! Be open to receive, and you will!
