When the little things get too much and anxiety seems to seep into every aspect of your life – it’s time to quit trying to figure everything out by yourself and ask for some guidance from above. Here, spiritual advisor Radleigh Valentine shows you how to feel more centred by tapping into the power of the angels
Everyone experiences periods in their lives when they feel anxious. Perhaps things are not going well at work or your primary relationship is feeling really rocky. Maybe you’re struggling financially or your children are not doing well in school. Whatever the reason, living on the edge is simply no fun.
Working with your angels can help you to smooth out the rough spots and reduce your anxiety during these times of challenge. Here are 5 simple steps you can use to calm your nerves.
Give Yourself the Gift of a Few Moments
The first step to getting out of your anxiety is to find a moment for yourself. Just 15-20 minutes can make all the difference in the world! Find a quiet spot either indoors or out in nature. Turn off or mute your phone. Take a few deep breaths. Ask your angels to come sit with you and to calm your nerves and to surround you with a sense of peace.
Get Help from Your Personal Guardian Angels
Everyone has at least two personal guardian angels. These loving beings are always with you, though they are not allowed to intervene unless you ask them to. Their purpose is to help you have a happier life. By asking them for assistance, you allow them to feel happy and fulfilled.
Take a moment to focus on the issues you are most concerned about. Scan your feelings so that you can tune in and get real clarity on why you are feeling anxious. Then ask yourself: “If I had a personal assistant standing by, what would I want them to help me with?” Tell your guardian angels what those issues are and that you’d very much like to have their help. Don’t get focused on how those challenges should get resolved. Leave the ‘how’ to your angels. Ask them to handle things in the best way possible so that you can focus on the happier aspects of your life.
Break the Worry Cycle with Archangel Michael
Archangel Michael is one of the most well-known in the archangel realm. He carries a sword made of light that can cut through energetic attachments of fear which are getting in your way. When your thoughts about a given subject or person become obsessive, it can be very difficult to stop worrying. This can turn into self-fulfilling prophesies. Ask Archangel Michael to use his sword of light to break the cycle of your obsessive thoughts so that you can focus on having a successful day.
Heal Relationships with Archangel Raguel
Archangel Raguel’s name means ‘friend of God’ and one of his primary skillsets is to smooth out troubled relationships so that things feel comfortable again. You can call on Archangel Raguel to heal any disagreement with another person. He can also help all parties involved to have more compassion for one another and to see each other’s point of view.
Harness Positivity with Archangel Jophiel
On any given day, there are aspects of life that bring forth feelings of fear or gratitude. Unfortunately, it’s very common for people to zoom in on what has them scared and to completely disregard what they should be happy about. Archangel Jophiel’s name means ‘the beauty of God’, and she can help you to stay in a place of joyful gratitude rather than walking around in fear. With Jophiel by your side, things suddenly look more optimistic. You’ll find yourself feeling lighter and happier. Those positive feelings attract positive experiences. Suddenly, you see that your worry was unnecessary.
Breathe, Ask, Repeat
These easy steps can significantly reduce your levels of anxiety. If you find as your day progresses that you are slowly creeping back into worry or fear, just gift yourself with another few minutes of grounding, deep breathing, and talking with your angels! The more you practise this, the longer your feelings of peace will last and the easier it will be to stay in control of your emotions.
