Psalms 91:11-12 For he shall give his angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
Sometimes we may feel like we are being bombarded with negative energy. Maybe we are not sleeping well and are having nightmares. Perhaps there is trouble at home or work and we feel we are carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders. We may be stressed out, frightened, angry or anxious, or even all of these things. If you are feeling upset or fretful it’s time to call in the angels for help.
All around the world people put their trust and faith in the angels. They are messengers of God, and extensions of Divine Will. And though they are certainly not here to do our bidding, they are here to offer guidance and support for the highest good of all in a form that is easily accessible, and essentially pleasing, to us mere mortals.
Throughout history there have been many tales told of powerful protecting angels and certainly the most popular of these protectors would be Archangel Michael. Usually depicted wearing a coat of mail and wielding a sword, Michael is a protector and defender of the innocent. He has battled demons and legions of darkness, and some religious scholars declare that when we are in trouble he will appear.
Uriel is another one of the protector angels, and is said to guard the gates of the Garden of Eden. Also known as the “fire of God,” Uriel is frequently depicted with a flaming sword. Another powerful protector angel is Ariel, or “Lion of God.” Ariel has power over demons and doles out their punishment in the underworld.
When calling upon the angels for protection, it’s important to pay attention to our own inner feelings and intuitions. It’s not likely that the angels are going to appear to us in full splendor, so they communicate with us by feelings. And by listening to our “gut” feelings we may be guided to avoid unpleasant situations.
Call upon your guardian angel or Michael, Uriel or Ariel, when you feel you are in need of angelic shielding and psychic protection. Ask them to clear the negative energy surrounding you, and to help you release your fear and anxiety. Place your worries in their hands for when the weight of the world is upon your shoulders, the angels are ready to assist.
