Bits and Pieces of Angel Love and Lore
What is an Angel?
The word angel refers to the collective group of light-energy beings that hold a higher vibrational frequency than our 5 senses are typically able to interpret. Angels are Divine Beings of Light.
Angels are non-denominational and are our messengers, protectors, healers, and friends.
Angels love everyone unconditionally.
Angels see and focus on our divinity, not on our faults or shortcomings.
Angels can be in all places at one time.
Angels want to help in all areas of our lives and no request is too small or too large.
Is there an angel hierarchy?
Yes. These Celestial Beings of Pure Love and Light are here to help us in all ways that are needed, but there is a hierarchy. Angels are grouped into 9 Choirs. Within those 9 Choirs are 3 Orders. The order of hierarchy does not mean that any one angel group is less important than another. All serve a purpose and have specialties, even within their Order or Choir.
The 1st Order: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones
These Angels are vibrationally closest to God.
Seraphim – hold the highest vibration of pure light energy
Cherubim – hold the 2nd highest vibration of pure love energy
Thrones – bridge the material and spiritual worlds
The 2nd Order: Dominions, Virtues, Powers
These Angels are the Princes and Leaders of the Heavenly Kingdom.
Dominions –overseers and managers of the Angels
Virtues – govern the physical universe, watching over the Sun, Moon, Stars and all planets
Powers -considered “peaceful warriors” who help to purify the Universe
The 3rd Order: Principalities, Archangels, Angels
These are the ministering Angels.
Principalities – watch over our planet
Archangels – watch over mankind and are guardian of the Angels
Angels – oversee all life forms, human, plant, mineral, etc.
How do I know when the angels are near?
The angels are always sending signs to let us know they’re near. They are quite persistent in their effort to get us to notice them. Although the angels send signs that each individual is most likely able to recognize, some of the typical signs the angels place in our path include:
Finding feathers or coins on the ground
Smelling a pleasant fragrance when there’s no breeze to bring it to you
Hearing repetitive words or songs that have meaning at that moment
Seeing cloud formations in the shape of angelic beings
Having an inspiration seemingly out of nowhere
Seeing a cardinal especially when a loved on has passed
Do I have a guardian angel?
Everyone has a guardian angel! Our guardian angels are the ones who watch over us and are most persistent in trying to get our attention. They are the ones who send us the most signs – pennies, feathers, repetition of numbers, sounds, song lyrics…etc,. They are the ones who first come to our side when we call to the angels, whether or not we know to call them by name. Guardian angels are our “angel managers,” those who oversee other angels whose specialty happens to be taking care of the problem we are currently requesting help with.

Will the angels help me even if I don’t ask for their help?
With the exception of Archangel Michael, who is the angel of strength and protection, the angels need our permission to help us because they will not interfere with our free will.
Is there a right or wrong way to call to the angels?
No, there is no right or wrong way to call to the angels. The important thing is to just call to them. You may invoke a specific angel if you know their name or you may just call to the angels in general. Your primary guardian, whether you know who that is or not, will make sure the right angel(s) are there for you for your specific need.
What’s the best way to ask the angels for help?
As mentioned above, there is no wrong way to ask the angels for help. You may simply:
Say it – call to the angels and ask out loud, for guidance regarding your concern.
Think it – call to the angels silently through your thoughts asking for their help.
Write it – write down your angels name and then your concern.
Visualize it – imagine the angels are with you, and “see” yourself stating your problem, asking for help.
Affirm it – affirm your situation solved by thanking the angels for their help, either out loud or silently (don’t worry about “how” it was solved – just affirm).
How do I invoke the angels for a specific reason?
You can simply call to the angels by asking them to be with you and stating what you need help with. Or, you may create for yourself a personalized protocol for invoking the angels which is unique to you. Here is an example of a basic invocation.
- Sit in a comfortable position with your hands resting, palms up, on your thighs.
- Take three slow deep breaths, releasing any tension you may feel as you exhale.
- Close your eyes and focus on your breath inhale relaxation and exhale tension.
- Clear your mind by letting go of all thoughts (like you do before going to sleep at night).
- Continue to breathe normally and when ready say the name of your angel three times and ask that the angel be with you now (or if you don’t know which angel to call, say the word “angels” three times and ask for them to be with you).
- State what you need help with.
- Next be still and notice any thoughts that come to your mind, any sensations you might feel, any colors, shapes, numbers, or pictures you might see through your mind‘s eye or any sounds you might hear with your “inner ears.”
- When you’re done, make sure to thank your angel. Angels love to know you appreciate their guidance.
How do I Receive Messages from the Angels?
Angelic guidance is always gentle, loving, positive and inspiring. How we receive our guidance is totally individualized. One person may “see” while another may “hear” or “feel,” and then there are those who just “know.” The Angels communicate with us in ways that we are most likely to recognize their presence and messages.
Four ways to receive angelic messages are through Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, Clairsentience, and Claircognizance.
Clairvoyance refers to seeing your messages, or “clear seeing.” This when the Angels are sending you messages through your outer vision, through your inner sight (your third eye), or through your dreams. Repetition of symbols, signs, or other visuals is also a key that the angels are sending you a message.
Clairaudience refers to hearing your messages, or “clear hearing.” This is when the Angels are sending you words or sounds through that you either hear out loud or silently within your head similar to the “sound” you hear when you are reading silently to yourself. You may also receive by overhearing a conversation that pertains to the guidance you’re seeking.
Clairsentience refers to feeling your messages, or “clear feeling.” This is when the Angels are sending you messages through physical or emotional sensations. The sensations are felt somewhere on or in the body such as having a gut feeling in the pit of your stomach, or your hands begin to tingle for no apparent reason. You may also feel a warm or cool breeze somewhere on your body. These are all signs received Clairsentiently.
Claircognizance refers to having a knowing, or a message through “clear knowing.” This is actually the most common way to receive. The messages comes by way of your intuition. The Angels send messages by “downloading” information into your crown chakra. Many people doubt the validity of this guidance, but a sure way to confirm you are receiving Claircognizantly is if the “intuitive” thought is beyond your current scope of knowledge, point of reference, or awareness – you can be sure, the angels sent it.
What’s the difference between a Tarot card and an Oracle card reading?
A Tarot card reading is more predictive and detailed in nature and is often used by psychics. There are usually 78 cards in a Tarot deck which includes major arcana and minor arcana cards . The major arcana represent major life events or changes and the minor arcana, represent everyday events.
An Oracle card reading provides gentle guidance, messages for self-growth (both personal and spiritual) reflection, clarity and insights into ones’ own life. There are generally 44 cards in an Oracle deck and the focus of the reading may be on a specific issue or concern, or on an primary life theme.
