The angels have been a part of my life ever since I was 6 or 7 when I had a bad dream and my grandfather told me about Archangel Michael and taught me an old French prayer to Archangel Michael, so that I could call on him every time I was scared. Thus began my faith in and devotion to Archangel Michael and to this day, I say this prayer even in my sleep if I have an unsettling dream. It wasn't however until I moved to the UK that I found out that there were books and courses on angels. I read a few and the ones that resonated deeply with me, were Doreen Virtue's books. They were simple and deeply loving, which reflected my own experience of the angels.
In 2004, I became an ANGEL THERAPY PRACTITIONER® certified by Doreen Virtue Ph.D. in spiritual counselling and healing techniques as Dr Virtue describes in her books. These techniques involve calling on the clients' angels as well as the Archangels, Ascended Masters and other spiritual beings. For more information on this process, I refer you to Dr Doreen Virtue's website.
The angels are always present no matter what type of modality I use but in an angel healing session, although I start with the techniques taught by Doreen Virtue and I like to teach them to my clients too, I find that each session is different as the angels will provide what each person needs so I myself never know what to expect or what to do until I receive the guidance during the session. Sometimes they will guide me to do a technique from another modality, sometimes they will urge me to say something while the angels themselves send energy to the person. It's always gentle, it's always loving and it's always a blessing to connect to and work with the angels. I have found such joy in doing so, that I have just come back from a Master Instructor course of Integrated Energy Therapy®, which is also a healing modality with the angels.
We all have guardian angels and throughout our lives, angels who draw close for a period of time, to help us with a specific project or challenge. The most important thing to remember is that for the angels to help you, you must ASK first. We all have free will and the angels cannot interfere in our lives without us asking for their intervention.
To anyone interested in finding out more about their guardian angels, the Archangels and Ascended Masters, I highly recommend Doreen Virtue's books. Her words will go straight to your heart. Most of the information listed below comes from Dr Virtue's teachings and book "Archangels and Ascended Masters".
I have listed below the Archangels and what you can call on them for. However the best way to work with angels is to focus on the issue at hand and call on the angels, archangels and ascended masters who can help you with it. This way, you are open to receiving the best help in the highest way.
