When we first start on our quest to invoke the Angels to join with us, we can start with the Archangels as they inspire confidence with their presence and lead us to our own guardians, the manifestation of our miracles and our messages of love.
The Archangels are the more well known Angels of the Angelic realms. Although there is more than the four listed here we will start this page with the better known Archangels.
To invite the energy of Archangels into your life, take a moment to read about them and familiarize yourself with their associations.
Once familiar with the Archangels you will find that they will wing their way into your life, bringing with them great love and compassion for you and your endeavours.
To begin with start with a weekly ritual (daily if you like). Light a candle in the name of each Archangel. Request their assistance, ask that they bless you with qualities of their energy. Let the candle burn in a safe place whilst you take time to settle quietly. In the silence of ourselves we will hear the voice of our messengers. In the silence of our minds you will hear the Archangels breathe.
Take a moment to invite them into your life while you are meditating.
