I – Connecting with Angels

Psychic is the new normal. Well, almost. Many new age practices encourage the development of the third eye, and learning to communicate with the angels is a very popular activity today among healers, psychics and the like.

Let’s start with a question. Suppose you know a lot of influential people, or say, brilliant, knowledgeable doctors, would that make you more spiritual than someone who doesn’t? And yet, it is commonly perceived as a spiritual thing to be able to communicate with angels. Just because you know all these doctors, does that mean you will never get sick, or that if you do, you will definitely be cured? No. Just because you can communicate with angels, does it mean you will have less trouble than your neighbor? Also, no.

It is very critical to understand this before we communicate with angels, because there is a widespread misconception that angels are here to help us become happy. Well, they are; just not the way we think we want to be happy. They’re here to help us transcend our limitations – which might mean going through extreme difficulties to learn important lessons. They are not here to remove those difficulties.

They are always here anyway

Communicating with angels doesn’t give you any more access to them than normal people. Sure, you might be able to receive a little extra help clearing out the traffic and finding lost objects but in situations that really matter, it doesn’t make any difference. Because they’re with you anyway. Many people end up talking to their guides, only to find that the guides have been sharing their pain the whole time. If anything, it is reassuring, but that is pretty much it.

The Angels are not superior to human beings

If we didn’t have a higher being to pray to and rely on, life would become quite difficult and unpredictable. We all crave security, and finding it in the angels is very convenient. However, the angels are not superior to us, they are merely energies here to assist us in our work, just like our other human colleagues. Nobody is higher or lower, we are all one, and the angels operate from that space – so should you.
