How Do Angels Help Us In Our Daily Lives?
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
1st Peter 4:10
The Angels do not interfere in our daily lives due to our free will. The only time they intervene is when a person’s life is in danger and it is not their time to pass on. They will however come to us in many different ways, all we have to do is ask. When we ask we are inviting them in to help us and they really will step in to help, offer guidance and clarity, and fill us with love when we need most, and sometimes in surprising ways.
Angels and Animals - Pets
Pets create healing in our emotional plane, cats, dogs, rabbits, whatever pets you’ve had; when they are stroked they take on our negative energy and walk it off into the earth.
When you look back and remember your pet memories come with a warm loving feeling in your heart. Your dog or cat who would wait patiently to greet you with unbounded love and joy at seeing you, jumping up and on you to say “Hi I’ve missed you!”. Your pet who would wrap themselves around you to go to sleep, even sleeping on or by your bed protecting you while you slept. The greatest gift your pet gave to you was the experience of unconditional love, you loved your pet and your pet loved you.
Our pets and the animal kingdom are an extension of the angelic realm, they come to us so that we can experience unconditional love in the physical realm, so many people think of their pets as their children which I can totally understand, the unassuming, non-judgmental, unconditionally loving being that loves you for you. When we are lonely or sad, our pets sense that and they come and sit by us or put their heads on our knees looking up at us as if to say “what's wrong? I feel your pain, I'm here for you now”.
The angelic realm will sometimes send us messages through the animal kingdom, the Robin is one of their special favorites. You may notice when you are outside in nature or in the garden and you are thinking about someone who has died, that a red robin turns up and watches you. This is a message from the angelic realm that your loved one is still around you in spirit, you may even sense your loved one through the robin's eyes.
I had worked at a company and the owner had his dog at the office everyday. I loved his dog! Everyday he would wait for me to come in the office so excited when I finally arrived. I made him his bed in my office, throughout the day I would play fetch with him, take him with me when I went to run errands. There came a time that I felt like I was going to lose my job. It was a strong feeling I couldn’t shake. I would pray and talk to the angels as well, if this was meant to be I trust you to place me in the right direction. I came in the office and Sparky was there waiting for me without the normal enthusiasm, he would just stare at me and lay at my feet not interested in playing, following me around the office and lay at my feet wherever I went. A few hours later I was laid off. Little Sparky knew and was trying to comfort me, I miss that little guy.
Believers from the world’s major religions view both angels and animals as creatures made by God, just like human beings. While angels may seem ethereal and animals more down-to earth, they both love people -- angels help care for us, and animals give us love and companionship. The love they give us often inspires us to love them back.
When reading over various sacred texts, there are mentions of angels and animals.
The Bible: An Archangel Uses a Fish for Healing
In the Book of Tobit, which is part of the Catholic Bible, Archangel Raphael uses an animal, a fish, to bring both spiritual healing to a woman named Sarah who was afflicted by a demon and physical healing to a man named Tobit who was blind.
The Bhagavad Gita: A Divine Force Lives Inside Both Angels and Animals
The Hindus believe that the same divine force that empowers angelic beings (called devas) also lives inside animals. The Bhagavad Gita declares in chapter 5, verse 18: “An enlightened person -- by perceiving God in all -- looks at a learned person, an outcast, even a cow, an elephant, or a dog with an equal eye.” The angelic devas may manifest in the form of animals when they appear on Earth. In this aspect it explains why so many statues of the devas in Hindu temples show as animals -- such as tigers or elephants.
The Quran: Angels and Animals Join All of Creation in Worshiping God
In chapter 22 (Al Hajj), verse 18, the Quran declares that angels and animals join human beings and other parts of nature in worshiping the God who made them: “Have you not seen that before God prostrate all that are in the heavens and all that are in the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and the beasts, and a great number among mankind?"
The Hadith: Angels May Appear to Animals
The Hadith (a collection of the Muslim prophet Muhammad’s teachings) says in Sahih Bukhari 4:522 that animals may see angels: “When you hear the crowing of cocks, ask for Allah’s Blessings, for (their crowing indicates that) they have seen an angel…”.
Angels and Relationships
Angels also help us with any and all relationships, Whether it be love, family, friendship, co-workers, bosses, neighbors, etc.
The angels can help you with romance, whether you’re in a committed relationship or single. Be sincere in asking for help, pour your heart out to them, ask for help finding the person who is meant for you who will match your personality and character. Thank them for helping guide you and your person to meet. Have faith and confidence they will guide you and your person to meet. Have faith and confidence they will step in on your behalf.
The angels will also help you if you are currently in a relationship, they will add a new level of passion, love, and understanding. Ask them to help you and your partner recover your playful side, which is an important ingredient of romance. The angels say that many couples become overly focused on work and responsibilities, and they need to make time for playful and loving interactions. The angels can help you find time for this important task, and also give you the energy to carry through.
When asking for help with your relationship be aware that the answers you receive may not be what you were hoping for. I was once very much in love with a man who was my world. I felt he was perfect for me and he was my person. At one point in our relationship it started to feel out of balance, so I asked for help. I wanted to know if he truly loved me so I asked to see his true colors, I asked this for three days. On the fourth day I was shown his true colors. I was shown he would really never be there for me when I really needed him. I had to have emergency surgery, my appendix no longer liked me. It ruptured when the doctors cut me open and I died on the table, respiratory failure. I was in the hospital for 10 days. It was a horrible ordeal. My person was nowhere to be found. He never came to see me in the hospital and when I came home his attitude was that my being ill was somehow a hindrance to what he had going on. So I do advise you to be open to all the answers you receive when asking for help or guidance within your relationships.
Relationships with Friends
Our relationships sometimes change when we commit to a spiritual path, which includes working with the angels. If you have a friendship that began when you were focused on the material world, you may feel yourself pulling away from that friend as your focus becomes more spirit-centered.
For one thing, your interests may grow apart. For another, the Law of Attraction says that we’re attracted to people who are on the same wavelength as we are. So, someone who’s focused on love and peace won’t be attracted to someone whose focus is fear. Personally I lost many friends when I began my spiritual path. I had changed and they longer wanted to be around me. Ask your angels to help you through these shifts and changes in your relationships. Ask them to bring peaceful resolutions to any relationships that are ending. The angels can also bring you wonderful new friends, if you’ll simply ask.
Relationships with Family Members
In the same way, your family interactions may change as you become more spiritually focused. If you come from a more traditional family, they may at first worry about your spirituality. Don’t try to convince or convert anyone to your new way of thinking. The best way to handle this sort of situation is to be peaceful and happy. In that way, you’re a walking advertisement for the benefits of living on the spiritual path. As people notice your peacefulness, they’ll soon ask you about the secret to your happiness. The angels guide us to release resentment and anger as an avenue to peace.
Most of us have experienced pain in our relationships with family, friends, and lovers.
The angels ensure that this pain doesn’t ruin our present and future health and happiness. If someone has performed an action that you feel is unforgivable, the angels won’t ask you to change your mind and say, “What they did is okay.” Instead, the angels want you to release the poisonous anger within your mind and body. When we hold resentment, we attract similar relationships and situations to us.
If you’re tired of unhealthy relationship patterns, the likely culprit is unforgiveness toward a family member. The word forgiveness is a synonym for “releasing toxins,” and replacing them with health and peace. The angels can help you with this, if you’ll ask. One effective way to release emotional toxins is to call upon Archangels Michael and Jeremiel as you’re falling asleep. That’s because when you’re sleeping, you’re more open to angelic intervention. When you’re awake, your ego’s fear can block the angels’ help.
Ask them to clear away any old anger, pain, resentment, judgments, bitterness, or unforgiveness from my mind, body, and emotions. In a short amount of time you’ll notice a positive shift. It doesn’t matter whether you recall your dream interactions with the archangels or not, as their work is on the unconscious level. The angels can clear old issues with people who are living or deceased. These healings don’t mean that you have to reignite a relationship with the person. The intention is to clear the path for you to feel love, peace, and harmony in all areas of your life. There are also many meditations on YouTube that can help with this as well. Just search meditations for healing and there are plenty to choose from. What most people won’t tell you is that when you invoke the angels for healing it can be a very emotional process depending on the wounds you are carrying with you. You must acknowledge and feel these emotions so you can process them and release them. It’s a very important step in the healing process, so don’t ignore or avoid those emotions.
Relationship Healing with the Angels
Although the angels can’t violate anyone’s free will, they will intervene into any situation that’s affecting your peace—including relationship troubles. Tell them about your fears, anger, disappointments, and desires. Ask them to bring about peace in the relationship. Don’t tell the angels how to do so, or you’ll slow or miss the answer to your prayer. Allow the infinite creative wisdom of God to come up with an ingenious solution that will delight everyone involved. Doreen Virtue Angels Blog 101
