Angels are our guardians and guides. They are divine spiritual beings of love and light that work with humanity to help us in this lifetime; brining us messages, guidance, healing, protection and help for our highest good. Guardian angels are unique to each person; we each have our own team. For some people this may be one angel, for others it may be many; and you can always ask for more if you feel the need.
The meaning of the word "Angel" is messenger; communication and guidance are their specialties. Messages from your angels are always for your highest good; guiding to your dreams, your purpose, happiness, joy and peace. Your guardian angel(s) are excellent counsellors; think of them as your very own Divine Life Coaches. Their guidance is truly for your best interests, always positive, unconditionally loving and very honest, but never judgmental or negative. You can always count on your angels for the best advice, counsel and information available.
As an Angel Intuitive, I help people connect with their guardian angels and I teach people about communicating with the angels as well. I also ask the Angels for inspiration and ideas for my articles. With a new year coming, there are many things the angels would like us all to know. Right now there is an energy shift occurring on our planet that is making room for new paradigms. This shift brings about a range of emotions and energy for people, some of which can be very fearful. The Angels assure us that there is a very positive side to all that is happening, and there is a lot we can do to bring about a more peaceful state in all of our lives. Their messages give us insight into what we can each do in 2017 to improve not only our own lives, but the state of the world as well.
Here are 5 Angel Messages for 2017:
1. Trust Yourself
If everyone learned to trust their own instincts, without question, the world would have more peace, because there would be less drama and stress (we'd be a lot physically healthier too). Consider this, your higher self and spirit (Angels, God, the universe; whatever resonates with you) communicates with you through your intuition. When you dismiss your intuitive feelings, you are, in part, dismissing Divine Guidance. Your intuition is a guidance system, not an explanation system. It is based on energy, and energy doesn't lie. Learn to trust it without always needing to know why you are feeling a certain way. If you have doubts about your feelings, ask for a sign from the universe or your angels to confirm them.
2. Love Yourself
Self-love is the foundation of your life. When you are truly loving, forgiving and accepting with and of yourself; you can share and give that energy to others. We can only give what we already have for ourselves. When you are more unconditionally loving with yourself, you naturally give that to others; creating healthier relationships along the way. All love comes from within, and so does hatred. Self-hatred, even in minimal forms, puts that energy out into the world, and it is matched, because like energy attracts like energy (Law of Attraction). Self-love puts loving energy into the world and it is amplified and attracts more of the same. Loving yourself is loving the world!
3. Do What Brings You Joy
Joy is a very high vibrating energy, aligned with love. When you do joyful things, you give that energy to others. Each one of our individual Life Purpose is to serve others in a way that bring us the greatest joy (because when we do, we help raise the energy of the planet). When you spend your days stressed, miserable or unhappy, that energy affects everyone in your life ; it is draining! If you only act on one Angel Message for 2017, this would be the most important one; not only for your life, but for the lives of everyone around you and for the greater good.
4. Stop Comparing
When we compare ourselves or our lives to others, we lower our vibration. Comparing is either done to makes us falsely feel better or feel worse; it is a no win either way. The only path you need to focus on is your own, because the only person you can change is yourself. Allow others to inspire you and believe in your potential; feeling jealous or judgmental is a clear sign of destructive energy.
5. Seek Peace
World peace happens one person at a time. The more peaceful you are, the more peaceful you make the world with your energy. The first four messages all combine to help you have more peace in your life, but there are other practices that can support that. Meditation, creative expression, yoga, physical exercise, eating clean, energy healing, essential oil diffusing, Chakra clearing/balancing and healing crystal use are all tools for creating more peaceful,energy in your life. Create a spiritual practice that centers around this principle and you will change and impact your life in very positive ways. Namaste.
