Even though these techniques may set the stage, make you more comfortable and make your Guides and Angels feel welcomed, this is not necessary. All you need to do is call out to them. It doesn't have to be in words, all it needs to be is a thought “I need your help." They always come. If you open yourself up to their energy, you will feel their presence.
Once you feel your Guides and Angels, ask them questions. Be present in this moment, let your mind go blank and allow anything to flow. You may want to keep a journal and write down anything that comes to mind. You may even hear your guides and angels talking or you may feel what they are communicating, while others "feel" what they are saying.
You'll soon be able to identify your Guides and Angels by the way they "feel". Each Angel or Guide has a different energy, just like humans. You may be able to feel their size or colour; you may be able to tell how they smell, or how they sound. Again, no one way is better than the other, it's how they choose to communicate with you and what's easiest for you to comprehend. Have fun, Denise♥
