Doreen Virtue on developing relationships with angels

Doreen Virtue

Ray: Doreen, you said when we are born angels are assigned to us. How do we develop relationships with these angels?

Doreen: The first thing is to ask their names. When you are feeling really relaxed — say you’re outdoors in nature — close your eyes and pose the request to your angels: “Please tell me your names.”

Everyone has at least two angels. A lot of people have more than two. Have a pad of paper handy, because you are going to hear, feel, see, or think names.

Some of the names may be recognizable. You might hear “Michael,” and it is Archangel Michael. He can be with everyone who calls on him, simultaneously, with all of the people having unique individual experiences.

You also may hear names that do not sound like ordinary names. They may even sound like verbs or adjectives.

The next step is to ask your angels to give you clear signs you have heard their names correctly. You will be bombarded in the next few days with people saying each name you heard. You will read it in headlines, or suddenly look up and see it on a billboard.

Then you’ll know: That’s your real angel.

Relationships with angels are like all relationships you develop. You pay attention to them. You talk to them a lot about your true heart’s desires and your fears.

Developing a relationship with an angel is just like developing a best friend in a human.
