Your Spirit Guardians – The Archangels

We are never alone.  In our darkest times or brightest days we are surrounded by guides and angels who will come help and guide us.  All you have to do is ask.  During any kind of spiritual work, meditation, or just doing every day things, you can call upon your spirit guardians for assistance  and guidance.  Here is a list of the Archangels and their corresponding crystals, sign, scents, flowers, and attributes.

Archangels serve as guardians for our entire planet. Angels are messengers from the Divine, and as such, they will work with ANYONE who asks.  You don’t have to be of a certain religion and you don’t have to be religious or spiritual to ask for angelic assistance.  They are there to help everyone and that is their MISSION.  They do not make exceptions.


Be still, take deep breaths and relax as you breathe.

 Ask the Archangel that you need to join you, and visualize them standing beside you.

Thank them for coming. Ask them for their help and guidance throughout the day and expect great things to happen.

As you feel them and great things start to happen just take a moment to thank them.
