I don’t recall when I realized that I could ask the angels for their help, but when I did, it seemed that they were always ready to assist me. This may be a new concept for you, so try to be open-minded. When you ask for their assistance with pure intent, they help you every time. It’s truly amazing. I have many stories about angels and how I came to believe.
Here’s a cute one: My husband and I landed in Detroit Metropolitan Airport late one evening. We caught the shuttle to pick up our rental car. As soon as we hopped onto the shuttle with 25 other people, the driver told us that our rental company was out of cars and that they were taking us to another rental company. Everyone just looked at each other and sighed. We soon arrived at the building and stepped to the back of the lengthy line. I said to my husband, “It will be OK; we will get a car. I asked the angels for help under my breath when we got in line.” My husband has faith, but in times like this he just looks at me — you know, with that weird look like, are you kidding me?
After about 40 minutes, it was our turn. The girl at the counter was so nice to us, and said, “We are out of vehicles.” Then she looked at us and said, “I have actually found an SUV for you to drive. The vehicle is at a better rate than you had originally booked and an upgrade, too.” We paid her and thanked her profusely. As we left the counter, I noticed her name tag. It read, “Angel.” (These things happen to me all the time. I think the angels mess with me a little just to see if I am paying attention.)
You can communicate with angels just as you communicate with God. I feel that the angels are God’s helpers. They are ready to assist us when we call on them. You can speak to the angels as you would to a friend. You can ask for their assistance when you need it. Please remember that the request has to be for your highest good, as well as for that of anyone else involved.
The angels will help with even the smallest things. If you are late for work, ask that the angels get you there on time. I have done this for years, and it always works; I began to realize that they may be able to manipulate time. I request that they watch over my children when I feel that my children need guidance and support. I call on the angels and ask that they watch over me and my husband in our travels, as they are God’s helpers. The key is to just ask. Do not be afraid or think that your request is not important. All requests are heard and answered. Maybe not always in your time frame, but in God’s.
Some years back I found myself lost in a large city. I had flown into the airport late at night and alone, and as I drove away from the airport, there were detours on the roads. I thought I knew the way, but I had gotten turned around. I was lost and started to panic; I was afraid. This incident happened in the days before cars were equipped with GPS systems. Finally, out of pure desperation, I said out loud, “Angels, I need your help! Get me out of here, please!”
Within a few seconds I spotted a familiar road and headed in the right direction. I know they guided me there. Have you ever had someone show up to help you out of a bind, and then they were gone, never to be seen again? This has happened to me a couple times that I am aware of and to others I have spoken to. Angels will take on different forms to assist you in life.
When my kids were little, I worked many hours as a single mom. I picked up the girls from their afterschool program, cooked dinner, dealt with homework, gave baths, and sent them off to bed. I was often exhausted at the end of the workday.
One evening I was so tired that I fell asleep on the couch after putting the girls to bed. I was not aware that I had forgotten to lock my front door. This was not like me at all. Suddenly I was awakened by a very loud pounding on the front door. Startled by the loud banging, I jumped up and quickly answered it. An older lady with piercing blue eyes stood there. I wasn’t completely awake, so I am not even sure what she said to me — wrong home, or something to that effect.
I do remember, however, that she had the strangest look in her piercing blue eyes, like “Lock your door, girlfriend.” It was the most bizarre thing. I locked and bolted the door behind her and wondered who that was. Then I thought, someone wanted to make sure we were safe and for me to lock the front door. Thinking back, I realized she must have been an angel looking after us, as I never saw this woman again.
Another time, I was leaving work late one cold and snowy evening. As I was pulling out my office parking lot onto the main road, my car got stuck in the snow. My car was halfway in the road and halfway in the parking lot. Now what was I going to do? Suddenly, out of nowhere, a young man appeared. He just showed up out of nowhere, in the middle of the snowstorm, and pushed my car out of the snowdrift. He was tall and thin, with a short haircut. He wore a black overcoat and leather gloves to match.
After he pushed me out, I turned to thank him, but he was already gone just as quickly as he had appeared. Angels are always with you and available to help you when you need them. You just need to make a request and believe. It’s important to acknowledge the help they give to you and to always thank them. Gratitude is very important energy, and the angels love gratitude, too.
