What’s the difference between a past loved one and an angel?

It’s all about the feel for me. Everyone will experience something different, but I instantly distinguish the difference between angels and past loved ones by feel. What many don’t realize is that when our loved ones pass on, they are not an angel. Angels are angels and they have not lived on earth. When our past loved ones move on towards their journey, they can indeed become out guides. This is not always the case. I have had one client who lived in New York and her guide originated from several states away. When she googled him, he was indeed a person who lived and died. He told her his name directly and was not a relative at all. Though for some this may sound frustrating, as that guide is working with a stranger and not
their loved ones, it is important to understand why. When we cross over, we are shown everything that we did or did not do. We get to feel every emotion that we ever made another feel. So at that time we are pretty much shown that we have work to do and for some this may mean community service.

Some will choose to guide the actual people that they did not love or help in their lifetime. Some others will choose someone outside the family. In many cases, they will choose to help someone who has a similar mission as themselves, so that they can help that person maybe not make the same mistakes that they did. My New York client was a business woman, who worked hard and put more time into the office than she did at home. Her guide was a lawyer when he was alive and so as you may guess, he had some making up to do. He wanted to help her change her routine; to stop and smell the roses he never took time to notice; to pay attention to her family and most importantly to live her mission, which was to do healing work. She eventually took up his suggestions and studied Reflexology, hypnotherapy and other therapies and began practicing them, while gearing up to retire from the office.

Angels and guides come to help us live our fullest potential. They want us to smile, live like there is no tomorrow. The difference between the two is that your angels don’t need to help you in order to evolve. Your guides on the other hand may have selfish reasons for helping you. However, it is a win, win situation. They get to pay off karmic debt for 2 souls by helping you ‘change your ways’ and to perhaps redeem their “evil ways”. LOL.

It’s not important to know who is helping you, but it sure helps. Ask your guides to tell you who they are. Close your eyes and jot down what you see (colours, numbers, letters…) as these are all clues for helping you know who they are. You can do the same for your angels. Ask them their hair colour, their name, their signs that they bring to you. Working with your guides and your angels are very similar. They often bring you similar signs and will often work together to help you. Your job is to pay attention, to listen and to be open to them. If you see a sign only as a sign, then you may not receive signs from them. If you see significance in a penny that you find, then more pennies will come. I know one client that even after finding hundreds, and that is no exaggeration, of pennies in a day did not see it as a sign. Afterwards she realized it was a sign and then thought, hmmm what did they want to tell me? If you don’t understand then ask them what it means. Or like I say,”Thanks guys!!! I have no clue who gave this to me, and I have no clue what it is you are trying to tell me, but I see this as a sign. Wonderful! Great job! Now… Can you bring me a sign that I CAN clearly understand? Thank you so much. You’re so wonderful and I thank you for guiding me.” So it’s up to me to notice the next signs. And either I can see them or I can’t. Sometimes I’m blocked and sometimes I just don’t noticed. You know though, the more I try and the more I see beauty in every little sign. Great or small, the more signs come.

Listen and Pay Attention.

Those voices are real! You used to hear them quite clearly when you were a child. Somewhere along the way you learned that it was all pretend. At the same time, you knew what you heard or even felt was real. Deep down inside you know the truth. They stopped because you stopped them. Allow yourself to hear the voices again; those of angels, of your higher self and God. The only pretending now is that they are not real. Ask Spirit for help and hear the answers. Listen. Really listen.

The answers come to you in quiet moments after you’ve asked for assistance out of frustration. They come after you’ve busied yourself with some other thought. Sometimes your answers come in forms of inspiration and other times it takes a book falling off the shelf, and bopping you over the head, for you to finally read it. Sometimes Heaven will pick things up and move them to new locations to get your attention. They may even leave you a penny or a feather, whatever tickles you.

Signs come in all kinds of manners. Whether we listen or not is our truth. Are you being true “to you”, by listening and allowing these answers to be heard? Take time out today to quiet your mind. Get beyond the ticking of the clock and ask your angels and God what it is that they want you to know “now”. Pay attention to the images, symbols and messages that come to you. They are all important. They may be clues to the puzzle that you have been playing with. Listening and opening up these channels can only bring you closer to your true self and that self is worth hearing. It’s been speaking to you since you were born.

Law of Free Will says, Be Specific!

Your angels, guides and past loved ones all want to help you. They are relieved when you ask for help, as they are bound by the law of Free Will not to help you unless you ask.

On top of that they can only help, to a certain degree, extending out only when you ask SPECIFICALLY for what you want. In a nut shell, the law of Free Will basically means, You can be as happy or as miserable as you like and we can’t do anything about it until you ask! Sorry for the inconvenience. Come back again when you really want help! As brutal as it sounds, I have had endless readings where I had to tell the loved ones on earth to ask for help or those in Heaven could not help them. God himself cannot help us unless we ask specifically.

I remember taking a CPR course years ago and Free Will was one of the first basic rules that they taught us. They said to make sure that the person you are about to help wants the help in the first place. Get the verbal consent. They said we are here to help them, not to play God. Thinking back, I didn’t realize how important those words were until now. What if they wanted to die, we had to stand back and watch I wondered? In some cases, the answer is yes. For example, refusal of blood transfusions are a controversy with persons of a certain religion and the hospitals even have to sit back and do nothing without consent of family members or the patient themselves. We on earth feel bad, not being able to help. Imagine being from above and seeing an even larger picture and not being able to do anything because of your stubbornness.

Many of us don’t believe that we deserve the help from above. We are afraid to ask and feel that when we do ask that we are bothering our past loved ones or God himself. We get frustrated because we asked in the past and nothing came of it and gave up asking feeling unworthy and secretly mistrusting Universal Wisdom as a whole. It is important that you get clear on what you really want and that way there will be less confusion. Some give me prayers I have found not answered in my own personal experience, but when I humbly came from a balanced state and asked for help in certain areas of my life I found that help always came.

1. What? Be very specific when you ask for what you want. If you are searching for a soulmate then state it and be specific about what you want them to be like. I want him to play guitar, for example. But they may have him play electrical guitar and you wanted acoustic. You later may be frustrated with your guides and angels and they will turn and say what did you expect? I gave you what you asked for and you gave me no more specifics than a guitar. Be specific and detailed.

2. Reasons. When you start giving reasons for every item that you asked for then you will find more and more whats.

3. Believe. You need to believe. You need to believe you deserve it most importantly and write all of those reasons why you believe you deserve it down.

4. Dont compromise. It’s is important that you dont compromise with yourself and make your list smaller just because.

You may not get everything you asked for. However, you never know, you could even get better. I often will say, This is what I want or something better. Who is to say that what I am asking for is the right thing? If it comes, I trust that it is right and if it doesn’t I trust that my angels and guides can see better than me and because I handed it up to them, my Free Will and often stubbornness did not for once get in the way of my true happiness.

Ask for what you want and they will bring you what you need.

Love, light, healing and protection from my heart to yours,
