By Luke: Angels are kind; working in mysterious ways when they are called upon to help guide us, protect us, and much more. However, many times they are misunderstood. To further understand the way angels work, let’s relate them to humans and our ways of life.
The same way that you would kindly address a friend to ask for their help, angels very much appreciate when we call upon them kindly and respectfully. Angels are known to avoid and ignore hostile, aggressive, and anxious atmospheres. To make sure that you are in a peaceful and safe state of mind when calling on an angel, immerse yourself into a deep and peaceful meditation, envisioning your Anahata (heart chakra) as an open and inviting place filled only with love. Imagine yourself as an astral being. Turn your heart into a place that you would be happy to enter as an angel. Avoid treating angels as servants. It is disrespectful and they will be offended by this sort of treatment.
When your heart is prepared and you are ready to receive and accept an angel, call upon the angel you are seeking assistance from out loud. Speak kindly and genuinely to the angel and feel comfortable with the thought of them entering into your energy space. Demands are ignored by angels, so when seeking assistance from an angel, ask politely and do not expect results immediately. Listen carefully for the angel to speak to you. Sometimes messages are communicated much more quickly, or much slower than we communicate as humans.
Just the same as humans, each angel has a different job, a different specialty. Asking a mechanic to perform surgery would not be very useful. Knowing which angel to call upon for a certain task is important.
Envision the result that you seek from the angel you have called upon, and be detailed with what you want, but do not become attached to the outcome. Have patience and accept that sometimes the result you seek will take days, months, or even years. In rare cases you will receive immediate results; however, more often than not you will notice gradual progress over an extended time period.
