How do we go about receiving help from our angels? The angels have a purpose to enact God’s will, which is peace on Earth, one person at a time. These beings know that if each of us is peaceful, then we’ll have a world of peaceful people. So, really, your life’s purpose is to be at peace, and the angels want to help you with this.

While it’s true that challenges do help us grow, the angels also say that serenity leads to even bigger growth spurts. Through tranquility, our schedules and creativity are more open to giving service, and our bodies operate in a healthy fashion. Our relationships thrive and blossom, and we’re shining examples of God’s love.

Sometimes people say to me, “Well, God already knows what I need, so I won’t ask for anything.” True . . . however, we were created with free will. This means that God and the angels can’t intervene into our lives without our permission. In other words, we must ask for their help before they can assist us.

It doesn’t matter how you ask, but only that you do. You can say your request aloud, silently, or in writing. You can sing, whisper, type, or even scream your request for Heaven’s guidance. You can word it in positive, affirmative ways or as an appeal of supplication. Any form of asking for assistance is enough to give God and the angels permission to intervene.

I also hear people say, “I don’t want to bother Heaven with my small tasks.” To celestial beings, though, nothing is too small or too large. They simply want to help us with whatever brings us peace, and many times it’s the small favors that result in long-lasting peacefulness. The angels say that it’s also the small stressors in life that erode peace. So ask for help, as your contribution to world peace.

If you don’t know what to ask for, that’s okay. You can simply say, “Please help me to be at peace,” and they’ll get to work on your behalf. Or request something specific and say, “This, or something better, please, God,” since Heaven always has higher standards than our own.

Just don’t hand God and the angels a script about how to fix a situation. Similarly, don’t waste time or energy worrying about how Heaven will help you. The “how” is up to God’s infinite Divine wisdom. Your job is only to ask for help and then to follow the guidance sent to you.

I’m sometimes asked, “Why should I talk to angels when I can talk to God?” This is an excellent question! When I posed it to God and the angels, here’s the reply I received:

“When people are afraid and most in need of Heavenly help, their vibrations are too low to hear and feel the pure love of God. The angels, who are closer to Earth, are easier to hear and feel when someone is fearful or stressed. Then they can lift the person’s vibrations and help him or her be unafraid and at peace and return to a clear connection with God.”

Everyone can hear and talk with God and the angels. You don’t need to be specially trained, qualified, or deserving. All are equally qualified and deserving of Heaven’s love and help. You were created in the image and likeness of God. So you share the Divine qualities of love, abundance, health, beauty, and goodness. We all do.

You might ask, “Since everyone has guardian angels, why is there evil and suffering in the world?” Another excellent question. If everyone listened to their guardian angels, we’d have a world of loving and peaceful people. There would be no evil, which stems from fears about a lack of resources, which in turn causes people to act selfishly.

When you work with angels, in contrast, you begin to understand that there is no need to compete, because there is plenty of everything to go around for everyone. You begin to share freely, without fear of running out of resources.

Angels are different from departed friends and relatives. While these people can act like angels, they’re still humans with egos and fallible opinions. There’s no problem in talking with your grandma or other departed loved ones to keep in contact. To get pure Divine guidance, though, you’ll want to direct your conversations to God and the egoless angels (and Jesus or other ascended masters with whom you feel aligned).

The spirit world, where angels live, isn’t a faraway place. Heaven is all around us, in a different dimension. This is similar to the frequency bands of different radio stations all existing simultaneously. Your angels are celestial beings who have not lived on the earth before as humans, unless they were previously incarnated angels, who manifest into human form either temporarily to avert a crisis, or for an entire lifetime so that they can more directly help and guide people.
