Are the angels really helping you park your car, or is it a coincidence? Chrissie Astell highlights how powerful a manifestor you really are
Angels are always close by. All you have to do is ask for their help and they’re bound to show up. This month, let’s explore how they even guide us to our desired manifestation destination and work with us to achieve what we were born worthy of.
Rule out coincidences
Back in the ’80s, it became popular to believe everyone had a ‘parking angel’. I was very sceptical and found it amusing at the time. My friend Sylvia squealed, “Angels, we really need a parking place here in the High Street, please find us one now.” Then she explained that we needed to trust and that if we really believed, they would find us a place. Of course, I went along with her enthusiasm.
Humouring my lovely friend, I drove along the extremely busy London High Street like a snail, when suddenly (or coincidentally) a car indicated and pulled out. There we were right in front of the bank and coffee shop just where we needed to be. Naturally, I was impressed. I had always believed that there was far more to coincidences than meets the eye. So, here’s some questions for you:
Are angels really interested in finding you a parking place? Are they really to be called upon for such trivial assistance? Or could it be that our mind, sense of intention and passionate desire is so powerful that by setting our intentions
and focusing, we connect to high vibrational Universal energies and attract what we create?
It is all initiated and manifested by us. But, because we think so little of ourselves and our capabilities, we dismiss what we have achieved or created and assume it must always have come from angels, a higher power, or just simply a mere
lucky coincidence. Please don’t get me wrong. No one believes in the power and guidance of angels more than I. I’ve experienced their magnificence time after time. But I’m now beginning to understand the immense power of human beings too. We make things happen, and without going ‘all religious’ on you… why wouldn’t we? We are all created in the image of God, are we not?
Embrace your capabilities
I often refer to a quote from Marianne Williamson which has been attributed to Nelson Mandela, as he used it in his inaugural speech. She says: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” She goes on to suggest that we play small because we don’t want others to be intimidated by us, or to feel insecure.
But actually, the point she is making is that we go around in a state of unawareness of our presence and our power, to the point at which we either attract into our lives the awful things we fear most or those miraculous things we believe (on some level) we are entitled to, and yet still lack the understanding that we have manifested it ourselves through the Law of Attraction.
Alter your mindset
Let me give you a personal example. When I went through a period of my life feeling constantly downtrodden, abused and unappreciated, that’s exactly how those years turned out. When I finally learned how to heal my pain, to trust and believe that I had celestial helpers who would bring the right circumstances and people into my life by asking for help in the form of meditation and prayer, my life completely changed. Seriously. I had job offers, new friends and a turnaround in finances. I began to attract all the things I believed were part of my new journey.
Instead of my mind and heart being full of negativity and ‘poor me’, I started using affirmations such as: “I am lovable, I am beautiful, I attract only loving helpful people into my life”. I developed a way of communicating with God and received so much help from the angelic realms that I completely dedicated the rest of my life to helping others to change too. By trying to see the positive in every situation we begin to attract the positive. When we feel nervous the angels can bring us the divine Light of protection to empower us, bringing the courage and strength we need to lift the energy and change any situation.
If I need love or want more money, I tell myself that I am so loving that love flows wherever I go, I attract only love into my life, I am surrounded by abundance and have everything I need. I speak from a place of gratitude rather than lack, and I ask the angels to help me to co-create a loving and abundant life. Then, guess what? I feel so much happier, loved and perfectly well off! It is affirmed to me that my needs will be met because I am powerful beyond measure and because my light attracts angelic assistance when I pray and respectfully call it in. When we learn to accept this and step right into our own light, we can just about manifest anything. Much, much more than just a parking space.
Now try something new
Give gratitude to the Archangels
Here’s a very effective prayer I put into practice in 1999 just after my whole life had changed. I said these words every day as I left my underground car park and headed off to my new nursing job. When I arrived at work people often commented on my positive ‘glow’ (even though there were lots of underlying challenges still to be worked out). I knew then, as I know now, that our power of manifesting here on Earth when matched with the divine light of the angelic realms, is absolutely phenomenal. Try it and see for yourself.
“Dearest Archangels with a heart filled with gratitude, I ask that you bring me your wonderful heavenly qualities.
Archangel Michael, I ask you to empower me. Give me personal strength and protection.
Archangel Jophiel, I call on your wisdom and illumination to help me to have clarity of mind and inspiration.
Archangel Gabriel, I ask for your divine light and guidance.
Archangel Raphael, please bring me your healing energy and knowledge.
Archangel Chamuel, allow me to feel your love that I may share it openly with everyone I meet.
Archangel Uriel, may I feel your peace now in my body, heart, mind, spirit and soul. Use me as a channel for peace.
Archangel Zadkiel, may I feel the transformation of your violet flame and may all my negative thoughts or fears be transmuted into positive energy, bringing joy to whatever I do.
May I feel your presence and set my intention to co-create a loving and peaceful world.
So it is. Amen.”
