Angels play major roles and often reflect and inspire the holidays’ or celebrations’ images and symbolism. The word inspiration comes from the Latin and means, “filled with spirit.” Inspiration goes beyond imagination as a “divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation.”
Whatever you believe or don’t think so, consider expanding and opening up your thinking that Divine Downloads can more easily flow by connecting with angels as muses.
It’s comforting and grounding that my first actions each morning include calling upon them –especially Archangel Gabriel–to start my Divine Dialogue Writing Practice. My first outer act is to later share their inspiration on social media.
To connect with any archangel or angel energy as you create or write, please consider:
* Calling upon the angel by name to guide you with visions, signs, and messages. “Ask and is it given.”
* Paying close attention to your surroundings after you ask. These signs will come in different forms such as songs, words in a passing conversation, and those unexpected things that pop up out of the blue. Feathers and pennies also often appear as “signs.”
* Recording your dreams by keeping a pad of paper with a pen, or a phone/recorder, next to your bed. Then, upon waking, highlight your emotional impressions and details that will help you recall the full dream later. Upon deciphering your slumber movie, you will see the message unfold.
Your Guardian Angel
Knowing your Guardian Angel’s name makes the relationship all the more personal and powerful.
Your Three Birth Angels
According to some angelologists and also in the Talmudic tradition, it is believed that you are born from Divinity.
You arrive in an earth suit with three angelic pieces:
Your Birth and Heart Angels (based on your birth date) and your Intellect Angel, based on the time you arrived.
Knowing your Birth Angels’ names is exciting and comforting. They each reflect specific attributes and inversions of your personality and abilities to provide a unique, Divine lens to view life; this lens also offers perspectives to emotional and physical challenges and how to better deal with them in positive ways! (I enjoy revealing this sacred and helpful information to clients and friends!)
The Annunciation with Archangel Gabriel sharing news of Jesus’s birth to Mary.
Use citrine and copper to connect with his/her energies. Considered the muse for writers, authors, poets, speakers, and all messengers, Archangel Gabriel is found in several religious texts including the Christian’s Old Testament, the Muslim’s Koran, and the Jewish Talmud.
His name personifies Divine justice, strength, courage, and war in Christian and Jewish mythology and angelology. Archangel Camael often appears in the guise of a leopard.
Use emerald or malachite to connect with his healing energy. In Hebrew, the word “rophe” means to “to heal.” According to Beliefnet, Archangel Rafael “aids in restoring and maintaining harmony and peace. He is also the patron of travelers…and clears away fears and stressors that may be adversely affecting your health…”
Thursday-Archangel Zadkiel, “Righteousness of God”
Use lapis lazuli to connect with his energy. Zadkiel is also called the Patron Angel of all who forgives. Rabbinical tradition considers him to be the angel of mercy.
Use moonstone to connect with her energy. Susan Gregg of Angels on Your Shoulders writes that she can help you “make new friends; create an outrageous love life; enhance any artistic endeavors, heighten your intuition, enliven your healing rituals (especially at new and full moon times) and; bring balance into all areas of your life.”
Saturday-Archangel Tzaphiel, “Knowledge of God”
Sunday-Archangel Michael, “He Who is Like God”
Use sugilite to connect with his energy. Michael is considered to be “the Prince of the Archangels and of the Angelic Hosts, the Defender of the Faith, the Angel of Deliverance. He is also the sponsor of the police departments an law enforcement agencies around the world. Archangel Michael has figured as the greatest and most revered of angels in many scriptures and spiritual traditions. In Muslim lore, he is the angel of nature who provides both food and knowledge to man.” -The Summit Lighthouse.
Again, you may or may not believe in the angels of the non-physical realm.
But surely you believe in “human angels”–people you know or even complete strangers who bless you with H.U.G.S. >Happy Unexpected God Surprises. They appear at the most unusual moments which are often labeled as being “amazing” or “funny” or “synchronous.”
