Opening Up Meditation (and Connecting with Your Angels!)

Today's topic: “Connecting with Your Angels” 

We all have angels. The question is, what can we do to start noticing them? Or to feel and see them? I first discovered Angel Readings at the College of Psychic Studies in 2010. My teacher there was a brilliant lady by the name of Amanda Roberts. One of the first things Amanda taught us how to Open Up Safely before giving a reading. The idea is to activate your energy field so that you can see, hear and feel your angels. We activate our psychic abilities and then close down again afterwards. It takes some practice but soon, the images come through clearly.

Today I’m going to talk you through an Opening and Closing Mediation. The opening up process has three basic steps: 1) Grounding Your Energy, 2) Connecting to Divine Light, 3) Activating Your Aura. SCROLL DOWN TO THE END FOR THE VIDEO

Before we start - an image of the Chakras!  

Start by finding a quiet place to sit. Close your eyes, put your hands on your lap. Make yourself comfortable. Take a deep breath in, hold it, and release. Focusing on your breathing makes it easier to let go of your day.  

  • Grounding in Mother Nature. Bring your attention to the weight of the chair under you. Feel the ground below your feet. You can do this by visualising roots growing out of the bottoms of your feet, into the ground. They go through layers and layers of concrete, dirt, and rock down to the center of the Earth, where we find a HUGE crystal formation. Your roots wrap around this crystal and soak in it’s healing energy. Feel the energy travel up the roots, to your feet. It brings tingles to your toes, ankles and calves. The energy goes up your calves, over your knees, past your thighs to your Root Chakra. Feel the energy as it grounds and activates your physical intuition. This includes feelings, hot, cold and other sensations. The earth energy continues up from your Root Chakra, through the Sacral & Solar Plexus to your Heart Center. Let it sit there.   
  • Connecting with Divine Light. Still firmly grounded, take your attention up to the atmosphere. Visualize a beam of light extending from the top of your head, past the stars, to the purest source of light and love. Connect with that light. Stay there for a moment and then let the light travel down the beam, through the universe, to your Crown Chakra. Your energy body fills with light as your Crown, Brow and Throat Chakra activate. It travels down, to your Heart Chakra where the Celestial Light and Earth Energy mix. Stay there for a few minutes and let it sink in. Our Chakras are illuminated. We’re connected above, and below. 
  • Activating your AURA. This step makes it easier for us to sense the energy around us, including angels. Our Aura is usually held close tot he body, about a foot and a half in any direction. Picture it as a bubble of light around your body. We're going to use the Divine Light and our Intention to expand it. Intend for it to fill with light from above, growing stronger and stronger, as it expands. The light clears and protects your energy. Your boundaries are strong, filled with light. Stay there for a few minutes and feel your energy grow stronger. We're almost ready to connect with our angels! Bring your attention back to your Heart Chakra. The grounding roots, light beam and protective bubble are firmly in place. Call on Archangel Michael and ask him to protect your energy. You are grounded, connected and fully safe in your body. 

NOW - You’re ready to chat with your angels!  

Start by saying Hello. Introduce yourself if this is the 1st time you've talked to them (for your benefit mostly, your angels know who you are!) Tell your angel how you feel. What’s your day been like? Ask for advice or help if and when you need it. And listen. Everyone senses them a different way. Some people get flashes of color, sparkling light or feelings. You might feel an overwhelming sense of emotion or love. It helps to keep a notebook handy and write or draw what you feel. If you do this for 10 minutes each day, soon you’ll recognize their energy. And remember, your angels love you unconditionally. They will always support you. If you ever feel energy that makes you uncomfortable, send it away.  Archangel Michael can also help with this if you ask. 

When you’re ready:  its time to CLOSE DOWN AGAIN. 

  • Disconnect from Divine Light: We start by thanking the Angels for their help. Take your attention up to that Highest Source of light and disconnect. Your consciousness travels down the beam, through the universe to your Crown Chakra. The beam dissolves as your Crown Chakras folds in on itself, very gently. Bless it. 
  • Desensitizing our Chakras: Take your attention down from your Crown to your Brow Chakra. The light switches off and your Brow Chakra folds in, gently. Followed by the Heart Chakra, the Solar Plexus and the Sacral Chakra. Our chakras switch off one by one, desensitizing us to the psychic world. We come to the Root Chakra, between the legs. Now bring your attention back to the Root Chakra, between your legs. It draws in a bit, so we’re still connected to the Earth. Living off its wonderful energy. 
  • Close and Protect your Aura: The last step is to draw your AURA in around your body. We began the meditating by expanding, now we bring it back to "normal" size, whatever that means to you. Fill and surround yourself with pink, violet or white light. Check your roots. This keeps us grounded and safe. Bring your attention back to your body, your legs, your feet. Take a deep breath, flex your ankles. Have a drink of water. 

And with that, we are done!  

This is how we activate our energy for angel readings. Or any kind of intuitive reading! Please let me know how you get on with the meditation. The more we practice grounding (see here) and clearing (see here), the easier it is. And please remember to close down at the end, no matter what you do! =)
