It’s safe to say that our romantic lives are roller-coasters of emotions – we experience ups and downs every now and then. There might come a time when you will feel desperate, with no other choice but to have some distance from your romantic partner. Whereas, on the other hand, there would be times when you’d feel inseparable from your significant other! The point is, love isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. You’ve got to be prepared for the dark times. And you’ve got to look forward to the joyous moments which you’ll cherish till the end of your days. It’s completely alright to get help from a third person to sort things out – that’s what couples counseling is for. But, today, I’m not going to be talking about your average couple counselor. What I’m about to discuss is a professional like no other, one who belongs to the spiritual realm and is always there to help you out: your Guardian Angel!
Believe it or not, Guardian Angels have a lot more responsibilities than keeping you out of harm’s way! The purpose of their existence is to make our lives better, and that includes improving our romantic lives. Popular culture gives Cupid, the Greek God of love, all the credit, but the truth is that Guardian Angels are the ones who bring us closer to our soul mates. In this blog post, I will shed some light on how they can make our romantic-selves better. I’m also arranging an event called A Date with Your Guardian Angel on 12th October. You can get the tickets here (only a few tickets are left…so hurry up)!
They Give You Different Signals
Have you ever experienced/noticed a pattern of events that keeps on repeating itself, almost like a signal? These signs are coming from your Guardian Angel who is trying to tell you something. Since they cannot always take their physical forms to come and guide us, they make use of different signals to convey their guidance. That being said, have you ever felt extreme guilt after having a fight with your romantic partner? Or have you ever thought of contacting them out of the blue, only to find that they needed you desperately?
There is a very high possibility that those feelings/urges came from your Guardian Angel who just wants you to get closer to your significant other. In a way, you could call them the best friend who sets your mind straight, clears your head of negative thoughts, and guides you towards the path of absolute happiness.
They Heal Old Emotional Wounds
Guardian Angels are here to help. They not only act as professional coaches, but they also play the role of healers. In relationships, the tension from old emotional damage can build up gradually, causing complications in communication and your sex life. It’s crucial that you don’t let passive aggressiveness and pettiness get in the way of love and for that, you need to deal with your old emotional scars. Couples fight – it’s completely normal and a sign of a healthy relationship. At times, one tends to cross their limit and speak (or do) something unacceptable. But that doesn’t mean that it’s the end of the world, so just forgive and forget.
Your Guardian Angel tries to heal those wounds by comforting your soul, mind, and body, day and night, so that you get closer to your romantic partner and find it in your heart to truly forgive them.
Guardian Angels motivate you to act on your thoughts, provided that they are positive and would lead to beneficial results. Imagine that you come across a lovely thing while shopping, like a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolate – anything that would make your romantic partner feel great- and think of buying it. Or imagine that you did something wrong, are feeling guilty, and feel deep within your heart that you should apologize. We don’t always act on these feelings but our Guardian Angels do all they can to convince us to take the leap and act on our thoughts because they want us and our lovers to be happy. They implant these thoughts in our minds and make us identify the little things/situations around us that are beneficial to our romantic relationships.
Guardian Angels Urge Us to Connect More with Them
The reason why we don’t always benefit from the guidance of our Guardian Angels is that we tend to lose our connection with them. The modern world has so many distractions that it’s easy to forget about our spiritual-selves and become disconnected from the spiritual realm. This increases the distance between us and our Guardian Angels, making it difficult for us to receive their guidance. Because of that, our Guardian Angels leave us little signs and urge us to make the effort to connect more with them. An important thing to remember here is that there is no selfish motive involved – they only want that for our own benefit. By connecting more, we’d be able to receive better guidance, which would result in better romantic lives.
It’s beautiful how Guardian Angels are so committed to making every aspect of our lives better than it has ever been before. We should try to be more grateful to their services and learn the message of love from their efforts and even their very existence. Just remember: your Guardian Angel is always there to help you out no matter what, so don’t be shy to ask for assistance when you feel that all doors are closed and there is no way out. They are just a prayer away and will always be till death. I wish you the best of luck!
The universe has been created in perfect balance. The planets revolve around their respective stars in perfect harmony without interfering in each other’s orbits. The sun rises from the east and sets in the west without crashing into the moon. Simply put, a path has been set for everything and all the citizens of the universe have to abide by the rules in order for things to operate in harmony. However, at times, this “balance” can be disrupted by external forces. The same thing applies to the human soul and body. The incredible noise of our busy lives can very well disturb our internal balance, causing us to face difficulties in coping with the daily tasks of life. To overcome this problem, it’s extremely important that we take a moment to look at this internal balance of ours from time to time and take the necessary steps to become centered again.
But, what does it mean to feel centered? While it may sound like something related to our center of gravity, it’s so much more than that. The meaning transcends the physical aspects of our existence and touches upon the spiritual side. In my weekly Spiritual Awakening classes (held at the Wellspring Metaphysical Book store, AZ, from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM), I often discuss this problem with the attendees. If you are interested in learning more about these classes, click here.
By being more centered, a person feels in better control of their life. This allows them to focus more on the things that really matter, like self-care, appreciating life’s blessings, and so on. Hence, if you have been feeling “lost” lately and think that it’s about time that you did something about it, then keep reading for I’m going to throw light on different tips and techniques on becoming more centered and regaining control of your life. Let’s begin!
Release the Tension with Deep Breathing
Sometimes, we are so caught up with thinking about the problems of our lives and how to overcome them that we don’t realize that the solution is as easy as breathing…literally! A great way of releasing the tension that has been accumulating inside your chest is to practice deep breathing. Inhale sharply and deeply through your nose and exhale through your mouth as slowly as possible. A rule of thumb to remember is to make your exhales longer than your inhales. Not only will this technique help you in normalizing your heart rate, you will also be able to actually feel all the tension get released with every breath.
For a person who has a lot on their plate, making smaller efforts and doing less might sound counter-productive. However, you must realize that your ultimate goal is to become more centered and regain your internal balance. And besides, by putting yourself in less pressure, you will eventually start to accomplish way more than you had already planned. Let me explain how. Have you ever been so stressed with your responsibilities that you spent a good 60 minutes only ranting about them to your friend? If only you had spent those 60 minutes actually doing the work at hand, you would have accomplished so much more. Therefore, to ensure that you fix your lost balance and achieve maximum productivity at the same time, try kicking back every once in a while and take your time to achieve “less.”
Think about the Things/People You Love
It is a known fact that we feel more centered and “at home” when we are surrounded by the people and things that we adore the most in the world. This is the reason why so many of us feel blessed, warm, and cozy when we spend time with our families during the holidays. That is the moment when we realize how blessed we really are and that ultimately makes us feel more grounded in our true selves. So, whenever you feel disconnected and lost, try to think about your family members, partner, pets, or any other loved ones and try to spend as much time as possible with them.
Do a “System Check” of Your Senses
Instead of being overwhelmed by the surge of sensations caused by the noise in your life, sit back, relax, and do a “system check” of all your sensory channels, which includes your eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin. Treat them like actual people and ask them questions along the lines of, “Hey there, eyes! What have you two been up to lately? Dear nose, what’s cooking? Oh, my ears, what do you hear? Hello tongue, it’s been a while since we had a chat, hasn’t it?” In short, I want you to feel, truly feel what your 5 senses are showing you at the moment. By paying attention to your sensory channels, you will definitely feel more centered and in control of your senses.
Meditate and Block Out the Noise of the World
At times, by sitting alone in a room and detaching yourself from the noise of the world, you might be able to find that sweet “balanced” spot. Having been practiced for centuries by people around the globe, there is hardly any problem which meditation can’t solve and this is why I always recommend it as a solution to my clients. Settle either on a chair or on the floor with your legs crossed. Remember that you must be alone for this process. Close your eyes, stop thinking, and start breathing deeply. Soon, the noise that has been bothering you will start to fade away and you will actually feel yourself being drawn towards your inner balance!
It’s completely normal for people to get lost and have their internal balance disturbed. However, it is crucial for you to try and regain that balance as soon as possible and become centered again, otherwise, you will find yourself moving further and further away from your path. All the best!
Human beings are one of the most vulnerable creatures when compared with other life forms on this planet. Right after you were born, you were unable to walk. You were brought up with unconditional love, care, and protection from your family. Without all of those things, you would never have lasted a second on your own. Spiritually, we are extremely powerful and have the ability to overcome all challenges, provided that we struggle for it. However, physically, we aren’t so strong and are susceptible to disease and weaknesses. The point is, in this worldly life, we need constant protection and assistance from other beings to survive and go about our daily lives. Unfortunately, not every person on this planet is lucky enough to have people by their side at all times. For that very reason, God has appointed Guardian Angels who stay with us from the day we are born till the day we die. We are unable to see these majestic beings but they are always with us, watching over us, ensuring we stay out of harm’s way and don’t ruin our lives with silly mistakes.
That being said, we live in a world of distractions. Modern technology has increased the distance between us and the spiritual realm. Think of your Guardian Angel as your romantic partner, who is always there to help you through thick and thin. And like all loved ones, you need to work on your relationship every now and then in order to connect more with your Guardian Angel. This will open doors which you never even imagined and make your life significantly better! To help you in this regard, I’m soon going to set a date with your Guardian Angel. You can get tickets here.
Meanwhile, in this blog post, I will discuss some tips which you can use to mend your relationship with your Guardian Angel. Let’s start!
Get to Learn More about Guardian Angels
To get closer to your significant other or any loved one, you need to get to know more about them – that’s the basic rule of love. The same thing applies to Guardian Angels. To strengthen your relationship, you must understand more about Guardian Angels, their history, their purpose, and so on. For this reason, read different books and blogs about them. Watch videos discussing their existence. Or better yet, meditate and try to directly connect with them – ask what your Guardian Angel wants you to do and in what ways you could get closer to them.
Mention Them in Your Prayers
Prayers are the most powerful tool that human beings have been blessed with – they have the power to change destiny itself. If performed correctly, you can accomplish almost anything you want in this world. To pray, close your eyes, think of the things that your heart desires, and ask God to make it all come true. While praying, you could try mentioning your Guardian Angels as well. This will delight them and win you their approval. You’ll start noticing the difference yourself and find your prayers being answered more often.
Create an Altar for Your Guardian Angel
An altar is any space (at home or work), designated for spiritual enrichment and/or praying. It’s where you channel the divine and get closer to the spiritual realm. You can even build an Angel altar for your Guardian Angel, where you can establish a direct contact, have deep, meaningful conversations, and just get to learn more about them. This would surely bring your Guardian Angel much closer to you than they already are, reducing the gap and allowing you to interpret their signals in a much better way! You’re going to thank yourself later.
Work On Your 6th Sense
In science class as a kid, you must have been taught that humans have 5 basic senses – touch, sight, smell, hearing, and taste. But there is one more sense which is linked with our spiritual-selves and isn’t mentioned in school. The 6th sense allows you to sense what the naked eye can’t see, feel what your skin can’t sense, smell what your nose can’t pick up, taste what your tongue can’t savor, and hear what your ears are unable to. To deepen your relationship with your Guardian Angel, you must strengthen your 6th sense or intuition so that you are able to sense the messages coming from the spiritual realm.
Make a Journal
Another great way to mend your relationship with your Guardian Angel is to prepare a journal. Write daily letters to your Guardian Angel, telling them about how you feel, how your day went, and your goals for the following days among other things, and reassuring them that you will always be there to return the favor. In time, you might even start receiving Angelic guidance. Keep your journal by your side at all times and write everything down.
Guardian Angels work tirelessly to protect us and to make our journey on Earth a little easier. The least we can do in return is to mend our relationship with them and try to get a little closer. By following the tips discussed above, you can easily manage that and start receiving Angelic guidance. Always remember, they have been appointed to you by God Himself. They have no other choice but to fulfill their duties in the best way possible and please their creator, regardless of whether you try to make an effort or not. It’s all about how you, as a person, think. The universe wants us to live on the principle of give-and-take and we should strive to do whatever we can to play our part and make life more beautiful than it already is!
The universe that we all thrive in has been created in perfect balance. A place that is filled with blessings also has dangers lurking around everywhere. A grizzly bear could instantly turn a fun camping trip in the woods into a nightmarish memory. Or an evening at the amusement park could be ruined by a roller coaster ride disaster! All things considered, it’s safe to say that we all are extremely vulnerable creatures, constantly in need of protection and guidance. The common belief is that, like all mothers, God cares about His children the most, which is why He has appointed certain celestial beings which are constantly looking out for us and protecting us from harm – The Guardian Angels.
If you think about it, the idea of a magnificently glorious being keeping you out of harm’s way is extremely comforting. In the Holy Bible, subtle mentions of these beings have been made on many occasions, though the words “Guardian Angels” have never been used. Apart from that, one often comes across accounts of people (especially children) being miraculously saved from oncoming disasters, which further strengthens the belief of people in these divine bodyguards. But, is everything we hear about Guardian Angels actually true? In this article, I will discuss the common myths and legends about Guardian Angels and let you decide for yourself!
Legends about Guardian Angels
There are many legends associated with the existence of Guardian Angels and the purpose for which they have been put on Earth. Read on as I discuss some of them below.
Guardian Angels stay with us from birth till death
There is a common belief that as soon as a mother conceives a child, Guardian Angels are appointed for his or her protection and they then stick around for as long as that child lives. These angels are appointed by God Himself to look after us so that we stay out of harm’s way and make better decisions to lead a comfortable life. Saint Thomas Aquinas claimed that: “from the very moment of his birth, man has an angel guardian appointed to him” (Summa Theologica, I, 113, 5), which is an indication that all individuals, including you and me, have an angel watching over us at times even we forget to take care of ourselves.
Guardian Angels actually communicate with us
There are disagreements about whether or not Guardian Angels communicate with us directly, but logic tells that there must be some form of contact which prompts us to act in a certain way in order to protect ourselves. Hence, it is commonly believed that Guardian Angels communicate with us through thoughts, images, and, on rare occasions, by actually speaking with words (by taking on a physical appearance). It is believed that when we get second thoughts or feel doubtful about a risky situation, it is our Guardian Angel trying to plant thoughts to keep us safe.
You were chosen by your Guardian Angel
Many people believe that God appointed Guardian Angels for our protection, but there are some with the opinion that every person was chosen by their Guardian Angel. This implies that God gave them the chance to pick whoever they wanted to look after, which makes the idea of having a divine guardian so much more pleasing. Couldn’t this be the reason why Guardian Angels are so devoted towards their duty and have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to protecting their human? It most certainly could.
Guardian Angels are for everyone
Guardian Angels have not just been made to protect and assist Christians – Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, those belonging to other religions, and even atheists, have Guardian Angels protecting them at all times. This makes Guardian Angels non-denominational – they help and guide people to safety and the right path, regardless of their religion and beliefs.
Some Common Myths about Guardian Angels
Although we can’t say for sure whether Guardian Angels exist or not – this depends on your religious beliefs – there are certain myths that we often hear about them. Amongst all of them, these are the most popular ones:
MYTH: You become a Guardian Angel once you die
Many people believe that pious and/or those who lead a good life become Guardian Angels after they die. Children who lose their parents or siblings at a young age are often comforted by this thought. But, according to logic, it is impossible for human souls to do that as Angels are separate beings created by God to execute His command and become a part of His divine army, whereas humans, after they die, enjoy a deep slumber in the divine gardens or answer for the crimes which they indulged in during their time on Earth. Therefore, the opinion that humans can turn into Angels becomes invalid, however much anyone wants it to be true.
MYTH: Guardian Angels have halos & two wings
When we think of Angels, we picture an image of a beautiful humanoid being with a halo (or a “nimbus”) on top of their heads and a pair of glorious wings. In truth, there is no Biblical proof of any Angel having halos. The idea of halos or nimbuses was only implanted by artists who wanted a way to portray angels as pure and safe from all forms of evil. Moreover, there is no concept of a pair of wings, although according to the description of one group of Angels, some have been described to have six wings. But, those aren’t related, in any way, to Guardian Angels.
MYTH: You have to worship your Guardian Angels
Another common myth regarding Guardian Angels is that in order to get their help, you need to worship them directly. This opinion is invalid.Why? Because of the fact that all angels serve God and obey only His command. They, thus, do not act on the prayers which they receive from humans directly. All power belongs to God and we should only ever ask Him for help, not our Guardian Angels.

I’m here to help!
To help you connect with your Guardian Angels and learn more about their existence, I’m planning a fun-filled evening for curious people like you! Register yourself for this event and join me on September 13th, 2018 at 6:30 PM. To find out more about it, visit: Guardian Angel Myths, Legends & Personal Messages by Luci McMonagle
Let’s face it. Most of us came into this world alone. But all, not most, of us, will leave this world alone. That’s the single, most concrete and unpleasant truth of this universe, right? It appears that our existence was ultimately programmed for solitude. We all chase after relationships and intimacy all our lives while being completely oblivious to this one truth. Some people are lucky enough to find human companions during their time on Earth while others aren’t so lucky at all. Notice that I chose to use the word “human” – this means that your companion can be a completely different being too. And I’m not just talking about animals!
Every single person on this Earth has a partner we are unable to see, but one whom we interact with on a daily basis. Guardian Angels, the magnificent beings sent to Earth by God Himself to protect mankind, stay with us throughout our worldly lives and make them a whole lot better. In many ways, they are like the ideal romantic partners, who love us unconditionally. This means no matter how many mistakes we make along the way, our Guardian Angels stick with us through thick and thin and keep on fulfilling their duties without rest. We are blessed to have these wonderful creatures expressing their undying love for us all our lives. To celebrate this beautiful relationship, I’m arranging a special date for you and your Guardian Angel on October 12th, where you can get to strengthen your bond! You can get the tickets to the event here.
In this blog post, I will shed some light on how Guardian Angels express their love for us every single day so that you are able to notice and appreciate it. Here we go!
By Keeping Us Away from Danger on a Daily Basis
People will do anything to protect the ones they truly love. They will go to unimaginable lengths to keep their significant others away from harm, despite having limited physical power. Now, just imagine what lengths our Guardian Angels, who are purely spiritual beings with an astounding amount of power and unworldly abilities, go to in order to protect us! Whether they protect us from an oncoming disaster by subliminal warnings, through direct messages or by using their physical strength, it is the purest way they express their love for us. We should consider ourselves lucky to receive glorious expressions such as these.
By Showing that They Care for Us
A partner’s best quality should be the ability to actually express their care. You don’t want the love of your life to get into harm’s way, do you? From a common cold to a life-threatening car accident, you simply don’t want your loved one to suffer from anything. So you start expressing your care. Asking them to text you when they get home, asking if they had lunch, buying them a bottle of water so they don’t get thirsty… these are the little ways in which we express our love. Guardian Angels do the same. Unfortunately, we are not always able to see that due to certain barriers set by God. But trust me, they do care and their care is far superior to what any human being could possibly ever provide. Try to notice those little signs every now and then.
By Guiding Us to the Right Path
It’s true that we should love those closest to us unconditionally but, at times, we have to step in and prevent them from going down the wrong path. This only means that we love them too much to let them deviate from the right track. That’s one of the main responsibilities of Guardian Angels – they guide us to the correct path to protect us and those around us from harm. They do not want us to make bad decisions based on evil thoughts. This makes them the perfect guardians who just want us to excel in life and avoid getting into unnecessary trouble.
By Staying with Us from the Beginning Till the End
True love is perpetual. It goes on, even long after we have left the world. The definition of a perfect partner is that they keep on loving us and stick around forever. The most beautiful thing about Guardian Angels is that they stay with us from birth till death. As highlighted above, they keep on loving us unconditionally. Their duties end only once our journeys on Earth come to a stop. In other words, their love is for life. This gives the words “till death do us apart” a whole new meaning. Only death may sever the magnificent bond between a human being and their Guardian Angel.
Everything considered, Guardian Angels are the purest and the loveliest companions which human beings are lucky enough to have on Earth. In simple words, they are one of the most beautiful gifts from God who protect us, guide us, care for us, and help us when there is no hope left. In the end, I would just like to point out that we should be more thankful towards the blessings we have in life and not take them for granted. The universe can be cruel at times but find peace in the fact that these divine beings will always be there to help you out and get you through the storms of life without so much as a scratch. Moreover, we should trust them and aim to establish a strong connection with them. Don’t let this love be one-sided… vow to play your part too and try to get closer to your Guardian Angel.
