|Who are our Guardian Angels?
No evil shall befall you, nor shall
affliction come near your tent, for to His Angels God has given command about you, that
they guard you in all your ways. Upon their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash
your foot against a stone.
A heavenly spirit assigned by God to watch over each of us during our lives. The role of the guardian angel is both to guide us to good thoughts, works and words, and to preserve us from evil.
A Mother's Prayer to the Guardian Angels of her children
I humbly salute you, O you faithful, heavenly Friends of my children! I give you heartfelt thanks for all the love and goodness you show them. At some future day I shall, with thanks more worthy than I can now give, repay your care for them, and before the whole heavenly court acknowledge their indebtedness to your guidance and protection. Continue to watch over them. Provide for all their needs of body and soul. Pray, likewise, for me, for my husband, and my whole family, that we may all one day rejoice in your blessed company. Amen
Prayer to Our Holy Guardian Angels
Heavenly Father, Your infinite love for us has chosen a blessed angel in heaven and appointed him our guide during this earthly pilgrimage. Accept our thanks for so great ablessing. Grant that we may experience the assistance of our holy protector in all our necessities. And you, holy, loving angel and guide, watch over us with all the tenderness of your angelic heart. Keep us always on the way that leads to heaven, and cease not to pray for us until we have attained our final destiny, eternal salvation. Then we shall love you for all eternity. We shall praise and glorify you unceasingly for all the good you have done for us while here on earth. Especially be a faithful and watchful protector of our children. Take our place, and supply what may be wanting to us through human frailty, short-sightedness, or sinful neglect. Lighten, O you perfect servants of God, our heavy task. Guide our children, that they may become like unto Jesus, may imitate Him faithfully, and persevere till they attain eternal life. Amen
Another Prayer to the Guardian Angels
My good Angel, Thou comest from heaven;God has sent thee to take care of me. Oh, shelter me under thy wings. Lighten my path, direct my steps. Do not leave me, stay quite near me and defend me against the spirit of evil. But above all come to my help in the last struggle of my life. Deliver my soul so that with thee it may praise, love and contemplate the goodness of God forever and ever. Amen
Guardian Angel Exercise
1. Find a quiet spot to sit for a moment.
2. Close your eyes and imagine you can feel the presence of your
Guardian Angel. If you could see this Angel, what would it look like to you? Any shape or
form is fine, for your angel will take on the shape you need the most, the form you want
to see. Your Angel encourages contact from you and is quite willing to mold its form into
a shape that you find comfortable with. Imagine this as clearly as you can.
3. Imagine that this Angel is smiling, that this Angel is radiating
a love that surrounds you with comfort, safety and security. Really feel this feeling in
your body if you can. Feel it in your emotions.
4. Imagine that your Angel is saying to you these words "It's
all right. It's all right, It's all right." Allow your body to feel the relief that
accompanies these words. Allow your body to feel relief in the knowledge that it *is* all
right. For it is all right for you to be who you are, to think what you think and to feel
what you feel.
5. If there is something else that you would like your Guardian
Angel to say to say to you - something that is loving, that holds no judgement, only love
- a greater love than you have ever experienced in this lifetime - then imagine your Angel
saying this to you. Feel the words of your Angel moving through your body, settling your
unsettled emotions, calming your confusion.
6. Thank your angel for this gift. And know that the words your
Angel has said and the feeling of comfort your angel has brought you, the feeling of
safety, is yours. You can tap into this at any time, in any place. It is your birthright.
Through the use of imagination, to imagine that your Angel is there,
you tap into the reality that your Angel *is* there. Through the use of your imagination,
you begin to develop a relationship with your Guardian Angels or with the other High
Beings and Angels around you.
These exercises in imagination are the beginnings of a wonderful
reality in which you begin to understand the essence of who you are.
Invite your Angel to be with you at other times. Acknowledge your
Angel's presence when you are sitting in the theatre watching a movie, enjoying a
beautiful song, or during a time of discomfort or stress. Know that your Angel is with you
at all times, in good and in bad, and you give yourself the gift of safety, of security,
of knowing that you are not alone. You do not have to face your world alone. You have
