Chrissie Astell shares her beautiful experiences with angels in all their forms
We are spiritual beings engaged in a human experience and we are different in vibration from angels. Angelic beings and celestial helpers
exist universally, in every religion and world culture, and energetically they are omnipresent, appearing everywhere or anywhere at any given time. As angels are pure spiritual beings, without the encumbrance of a physical body, they can manifest in any form and have a mysterious knack of turning up in exactly the right moment in exactly the shape or presence we need at that time.
Reconnect with the Divine
First hand accounts have a common theme: the experience leaves the recipient with a profound sense of an ‘other- worldly’ presence, which we call Divine. People describe a real and moving feeling of connection with a source of love so intense that it has been almost painful. What remains is an overwhelming feeling of spiritual love and a renewed sense of well-being. The experience often leaves a desire to reconnect or to transcend the mundane aspects of life and turn to what they see as a more meaningful spiritual path. It is following such an experience that some begin to
seek their soul’s purpose.
I’ve already shared with you the story of my mum’s encounter with an angel, who came to her in the form of a nurse when she was a little girl and her mother (my granny) was seriously ill in hospital. I have heard amazing real-life encounters where ‘someone’ with superhuman strength has shifted a car from dangling over a precipice, then disappeared. I’ve heard from people who have seen an angel arrive to escort their loved one away at the end of their life. Sometimes they are in the form of children. I’ve heard from women in abusive relationships who have met a wise old woman or homeless person, whose wisdom has set them back on the right track before disappearing without a trace. I’ve received wonderful examples of angels as stray animals arriving in someone’s home and staying through a ‘dark night of the soul’ as if to guide them lovingly through grief or depression.
Align with your soul
Of course angels are inseparable from the Source, Divine Creator, God or
Goddess – whatever you wish to call this divine power. It is my experience
too that once their presence has been felt there is no separating the observer from the observed. There is a merging, An alignment, a deep heart and soul connection that will never disconnect. It really doesn’t matter whether or not anyone else believes you – once you’ve experienced the powerful energetic presence of an angel and perhaps heard your calling, it really is between you and your God.
Regrettably, for those who need hard evidence, the angels don’t leave footprints. It is also probably true to say that the people most likely to have such a strong mystical or angelic experience are those with an open heart.
Not everyone will have the dramatic angelic visions of historical or Biblical accounts such as Joan of Arc or Daniel in the lion’s den, but we can all, if we develop this open-hearted attitude, invite the angels into our lives and begin to feel the benefits of their presence and love. Many beautiful souls are unaware of their angelic guides. Others are dedicated angel followers. For some people it is as simple as calling in a specific angelic being to help find a lost object or a parking spot. But I always think this is pretty much the beginning of the journey. For although it takes faith, hope and belief to trust that your lost purse or whatever will appear again, or your parking place will vacate just as you reach the right spot (and it really does work), we know this isn’t what being a lightworker or an Earth angel is actually about. It goes much deeper.

Feel your way with angelic light
Divine light is in every cell and it’s within this light that we exchange connectivity with angels.
1 Light a candle and allow your eyes to softly focus on the flame for a few
seconds before gently closing them.
2 Call upon your guardian angel to help you ‘feel’ into your spiritual purpose and give you signs in your body of any changes you may need to make.
3 Breathing more deeply, take your focus to your feet and feel where they connect with the Earth, visualising them filling with bright light. Now thank them and think about where you stand in your relationships, family, at work and in life. How does that make you feel? Is there anything you need to do or change?
4 Draw the light up your legs, thanking them. Think about the direction your life is taking. How do you feel?
5 Breathe the light into your hips and pelvis, thanking this area, thinking
about all the joy in your life, your sexuality and creativity. How does that feel? Is there anything you need to do?
6 Drawing up the light now with each breath, take it into your abdomen and all the digestive organs. Think about how you are processing life and allow the light to illuminate any toxicity or blockages. How does that feel? Do you need to make any changes here?
7 As you breathe the loving light into your ribcage, heart and lungs, ask
yourself if you are fully open to give and receive love. How does this feel? Are there changes you need to make here?
8 Breathe the light up into your head, fill your face, mouth, nose, eyes, ears,
your brain and out through your crown. Does the light flow easily through
your senses? Do you always hear, see and communicate everything clearly,
holding to your truth? How does this feel as the light flows through you?
9 With gratitude, take a breath and let it go with a sigh. Imagine your aura filled with light, protecting and enfolding you with love. Then open your eyes.
