Are you ready and willing to receive an angel visit? If we have negative intentions, such as, Gee, I sure hope I can do this, or I’m afraid to see the spirit world, or Will God punish me for doing this? then we will be blocked from having an angel encounter. For one thing, the angels love us deeply, and they wouldn’t do anything to frighten us, such as showing up if we don’t really want to see them. The same goes for your deceased loved ones. Your grandparents, mom, dad, siblings, or other loved ones see your fear as a giant KEEP AWAY! sign. They will respect that boundary out of love.

“I really want to see my mom, but I’m afraid that she’ll have Aunt Edna with her. And I don’t want any contact with Aunt Edna!” said Betsy, a woman at one of my seminars. She explained that her aunt had been bossy and verbally abusive. Betsy was afraid that by seeing her mother, she’d be opening the gates of heaven so that other “less desirable” relatives would show up uninvited. This is another area to delegate to Archangel Michael, who’s happy to act as your “bouncer” angel. He’ll screen your visitors, if you just ask him to.

One of the reasons why children are so psychic is because of their positive intentions. They don’t worry, Am I making this up, or is it real? Children know that reality comes in many flavors. They also trust their intuition to a higher degree than most adults. Additionally, their lives are simpler than adults’, in general, so their minds are less cluttered with distractions, worries, pressure, and noise.

So, to open yourself to an encounter with heaven, be “as a little child.” Let go of rigid expectations about your angel connection. Just hold a positive intention such as, I’d really like to meet my guardian angel, or I would love to see and talk with Mom, and then release the desire to the winds of the universe. Trust your angels to catch your wish and bring it to you in a delightfully surprising way.

That’s why it’s important not to dictate to God how you want your angel encounter to manifest. For instance, don’t say to the angels, “Please brush my hair as a sign that you’re with me.” Instead, simply say, “Please give me a sign that you’re with me,” and let them figure out the best method for delivering that request. Remind yourself frequently that the “how” of the way prayers are answered is up to God, not up to us. The infinite creativity of the Divine Mind is filled with happy surprises that defy the physical laws of Earth, which our human minds often worry about.

So, holding positive intentions is essential. Even if you don’t fully believe in angel encounters because you haven’t yet experienced one firsthand, hold a positive intention. Even if you’re not sure if you’re qualified or deserving of an angel encounter (which I assure you that you are!), hold a positive intention. Even if you want to see an angel or deceased loved one so badly that it hurts, hold a positive intention.

Here are some affirmations to help you elevate your intentions to the most positive and optimistic level possible. Read, write, or say these affirmations as often as possible:

  • I feel safe in opening my psychic abilities.
  • I am highly visual.
  • I am very clairvoyant.
  • I easily hear the voice of God and the angels.
  • I am open to seeing my deceased loved ones.
  • I welcome my angels into my dreams.
  • God and the angels love me very much.
  • I can feel the presence of angels around me right now.
  • God and the angels speak to me continually.
  • I notice signs from heaven.
  • I am open to Divine communication.
  • I trust God to protect me.
