St. Augustine once said, “Make friends with angels.” He recommended that we make personal relationships with angels and let them deepen, just as we would with any other important relationship. And like your other relationships, asking the angels for help when you need it is part of the deal.

Asking an angel for help is one of the most powerful practices. You can ask the angels for immediate help at any time and in any place. I’ve gotten some questions over the years on how to do it, so here are some techniques that will help:

1) ASK!! Angels offer us help 24/7. The more receptive we are, the more help they can give us. If you diminish your receptivity you limit the angel’s ability to help you. Create your own invocations, or prayers, that specifically call for the help you need. Realize that when you call upon an angel, what really happens is that you open yourself to greater receptivity to their assistance. In other words, BELIEVE angels exist and that they WILL help you.

When asking for help, it’s important to realize yourself as worthy of angelic assistance. This is very important. Angels work with everyone regardless of personal histories and beliefs. Angels are infinite and omnipresent, your request does not diminish them in any way, nor does it affect their ability to help the rest of us. They exist beyond our experience of time and space and respond to everyone with complete unconditional love.

2) Connect with your inner divine child as you ask for help. He/she is whole, innocent, and recognizes angels as trustworthy gifts of the Creator. This will help create receptivity, excitement, and wonder as you prepare to receive the gift your angels have for you. Another way of putting this is to set aside your grown-up “logical” side and engage your imagination in believing in angelic help and that you’ll get it.

3) Hand everything over to the angels: every issue, problem, worry, and fear as well as every good intention and positive outcome you imagine as the result of your request. Release all expectations of how your request will be answered.

4) Express Appreciation and Gratitude for things exactly as they are. Yes, this may be hard, otherwise you wouldn’t be calling up to the angels, right? But find the tiniest grain of gratitude where you can. Gratitude is a powerful practice in and of itself. Have patience with yourself in this department, ask the angels to help you find it, and let go of any expectation of how this may be revealed to you.

5) Know that it’s done. Every request is answered; help is always given. Don’t fear that your request won’t be answered. Trust in your answered prayer. You’re loved unconditionally by the angels and nothing that will serve you is ever withheld from you.

6) Act fast on the guidance you receive. Accept the opportunity and act upon it immediately. Angelic help is infinite and unlimited. You cannot ask for “too much” and the angels are happy to give to you without limit. The faster you act, the faster you receive more assistance! On that same note, don’t be too married to “when.” We have a concept like “fast” is “now.” Let it go, just trusting that the help you seek is happening and may not “look” like what you expect. Stay open.

7) Celebrate yourself exactly as you are. Leave any critical judgments or negative feelings about yourself, your life, or others in the hands of the angels for healing. Even if it’s just for a few moments, let go of everything that’s not of love for yourself and everything around you. In this moment of surrender, much more can be done for you by angels than you can accomplish on your own.

Hopefully, this article gave you some practical steps to connect more deeply with your Angels and receive their help. Remember, Angels are at your side at every step. Angels are always with us, always eager to help. They live for this stuff!
