One of the ways that you can receive messages from your angels is through an Angel Reading. An Angel Reading usually involves going to see an advisor who communicates with your angels on your behalf and relays their messages to you. Some readers will work through cards and others will primarily use their intuition.
You can also do an Angel Reading for yourself with one of the decks of Angel Cards or utilize one of the many free online tools that are on the Internet. Read on to learn about the various different ways that you can receive an Angel Reading and get tips and suggestions for doing an Angel Reading on your own.
Why Would You Seek an Angel Reading?
There are several reasons that you might seek an Angel Reading. A common reason would be to get guidance on an issue or problem that has been on your mind for some time. You may also seek to have more general information about the coming month or year. Another possibility is that you are considering a course of action, and you want to know whether you are proceeding in the direction of the Light or in accordance with your Highest Self. You could also be dealing with an unhealthy pattern that is causing you difficulty or even a physical health issue. In that case, you may want to consider Angel Therapy.
Of course, there are many different types of advisors that you could see for such issues, such as psychics, astrologers, or Tarot Card Readers. What makes an Angel Reading different is that this type of reading specifically seeks to make contact with the angels, the benevolent beings that look after us.
What is the Right Kind of Reading for You?
Angel Readings may come in a variety of forms. Often they make use of Angel Cards or Oracle Cards, but there are some readers that use their intuition without the use of cards. You can see someone face-to-face, or seek a reading by phone, email, or through text. There are also free online tools to get computerized readings. Lastly, you can purchase your own deck of Angel Cards and do an Angel Reading for yourself in the privacy of your own home. The best type of reading for you will depend on your needs.
In Person Readings
A common way to receive an Angel Reading is through an in-person consultation. Of course, with this type of reading, you are limited to an advisor that you can find near where you live. One of the advantages of getting an in-person reading is that you will have personal contact with the advisor. Some ways to find an in-person Angel Reading is through local New Age or metaphysical bookstores or through word of mouth.
Another way to receive personal contact with an advisor is through a phone reading. One advantage of such a reading is that you do not need to live near the advisor. In some cases, you can receive readings by video chat, which has many of the same advantages that an in-person consultation has. Many of the large psychic networks have practitioners that offer Angel Readings, and there are many private consultants as well. The advantage to the large psychic networks is that you can usually see client reviews of the various readers. The disadvantage is that they tend to be more expensive, and they often charge by the minute.
You can also receive Angel Readings through email. In this case, you will send in a question, and the advisor will consult with your angels and send you a response. This type of reading is good for a more complicated question. This gives you the opportunity to carefully consider the question you want to ask and gives the advisor the time to send you a more detailed response. On the other hand, these types of readings do not give you personal contact, and you generally need to wait to receive the reading. In many cases, it will take about 2 or 3 days to receive your response.
There are advisors that will work by text message as well. Many times, these readings will be short follow-up sessions with an advisor that you have seen for one of the longer types of readings. The large psychic networks also often offer text options as well. Because of the nature of texts, they work best for small, short questions that can be answered clearly and concisely.
Free Online Readings
There are several sites that offer free online Angel Readings, such as this site. There are also Angel Reading apps available for your cell phone or tablet. These will generally give you a computer-generated card reading. While these types of readings are convenient and private, you are on your own, and thus, you do not have any advice about the type of question to ask or how to interpret the answer.
Readings for Yourself
You can also do Angel Readings for yourself using one of the numerous Angel Card decks that are available for purchase. Decks that you purchase do come with guidebooks that give instructions as to how to do the reading and how to interpret the cards. These guidebooks also often give suggestions for how to go about asking a question. On the other hand, it can still be confusing to do a reading for yourself, and it is hard to be objective. One advantage to Angel Cards over other types of decks, though, including the Rider-Waite Tarot deck, is that the messages on the cards are almost always positive, and you do not run the risk of disturbing readings.
Doing an Angel Reading on Your Own
Below are some suggestions for you if you are going to do an Angel Reading on your own, either through a free online site or with your own deck of cards.
Ask Your Angels to Guide You
The most important thing that you can do when seeking an Angel Reading in any form is to pray and ask your angels to guide you to the right place. This could be to an advisor, a website, or to a specific deck to purchase. Once you have asked for guidance, look inside and see where your intuition leads you. Do not think too hard about it, but go with what feels right inside.
When you have decided where to go or what you want to do, take some time to prepare yourself. Clear your thoughts and focus on the Light. As much as you can, clear your mind and your heart of negative thoughts and feelings. There are many spirit beings around, and not all of them are angels. Feelings such as worry, anger, jealousy, hatred, and revenge will attract darker energies to you. Thoughts and feelings of love and light will draw angels to you.
One way to protect yourself is to picture a shield of Light around you that will only let in beings of Light and will repel beings of Darkness. You can also call upon the Archangels, particularly Archangel Michael, for protection. If you belong to a religious denomination or group, you can use imagery associated with your religion.
You may also want to use incense or crystals. Rose quartz, clear quartz, and amethyst are especially good crystals to have around you.
Ask Your Question
Once you are prepared and protected, it is time to ask your question or set your intention. When you are doing any sort of card reading, the better the question you ask, the better the answer you will get. Unlike other forms of divination, with an Angel Reading, you are purposely seeking advice from benevolent beings, so they will not try to trick you or deceive you. On the other hand, if your question is vague or ambiguous, it will be much harder to interpret the answer. A good question is one that speaks to your present situation and is specific.
Interpreting the Answer
After you ask your question and draw your cards, you will get an answer. With Angel Cards, each card gives gentle and clear words of advice. The guidebook will give you more information as to what the card means. If you have prepared yourself properly, and if you have asked a good question, generally the answer will be self-explanatory. On the other hand, it may not be an answer you like. While it is fine to draw another card for clarification if you truly do not understand what is being said, do not draw another card just because you did not like what you received. Our angels give us the answers we need. They do not necessarily tell us what we want to hear.
You may find that after you do your reading for yourself that you still have questions or you realize that you really do need to speak with an advisor. If so, try to remember the question that you asked and the card or cards that you drew, and let your advisor know about them. They may or may not decide to do a new reading, but it is important for them to know about the reading that you did for yourself, particularly if it is about the same topic or question.
When you are seeking guidance from your angels, it is important to show gratitude. After you are done, take a moment to say thank you to the angels for helping you and caring for you.
If you are in need of Divine Guidance, one of the ways to receive such guidance is through an Angel Reading. There are many different types of Angel Readings, including those that you can do for yourself. When you are doing a reading for yourself, it is important to ask guidance from your angels, prepare yourself, ask a good question, an give thanks for their answer.
