Guardian angels are spirits that help you in your daily life. Various religions and philosophies describe angels in different ways. Many times when thinking of a guardian angel, the picture of a winged gorgeous model in a flowing garment may come to mind. But does this representation make sense?
If a spirit is not bound by the physical reality, then why would a being like a guardian angel need to manifest wings? It could simply float and move around at will with no flapping necessary. Secondly, why would the angel decide to help us in the first place? Why me specifically? Why you?
This is what first spurred a conversation with Aur, a life mentor to many and renowned expert in the metaphysical realms. Aur’s upbringing placed her in the midst of monks, healers, and holistic life counsellors from a very young age. In these circles; ghosts, guardian angels, demons or even dragons were commonplace conversation and simply a part of nature. Albeit not one we are able to see with the limitations of our physical senses.
Aur explains that spirits or ghosts were simply people, just without the fleshy body. This means that what we would call our “guardian angels” were simply people too (just living in a frequency our eyes and other physical senses don’t pick up). But why again would they choose to help us?

This comes back to the idea of reincarnation, constant and continual rebirth until a point of perfection or “enlightenment” when birth is no longer necessary. In Buddhism it’s believed that to even become the level of a human being, one must be born into more than a billion lives (I’m paraphrasing, but it was a huge number). In that time we’ve done both good and bad. We’ve made friends, and enemies over all of those lives. These relationships continue today.
Our guardian angels are people (beings/souls) we have helped in the past or done something good for in a previous life. Our relationship with them may have been that of a father, a mother, a daughter, a son, a close friend, lover or otherwise. We’re connected to them, and they’re happy to help us in this life because of our good deeds towards them in the past (an example of good karma returning).
So how are they able to help you in your life? In more ways than you may think. Aur’s students often brag about always getting the best parking spots right at the front door, even when it’s in the center of bustling Bangkok, just because they asked their guardian angels to help. Or they asked a business conversation to go favorably, and people’s interactions with them noticeably change from the normal exchanges. You can virtually ask anything you would like from your guardian angel, including to know your own future.
BUT! Is it real or imagined?
Many people may think that they can ask their guardian angels for a parking spot or to know their own future. They may even get a clear answer and a great spot 60% of the time. However, if it is truly your angel helping you keep in mind that the results have to be accurate 100% of the time. Otherwise you’re likely simply talking to yourself. So make sure the answers or guidance you get isn’t just your imagination.
It takes a lot of power for a non-physical form to have influence on this world. Asking your angels for too much may mean they don’t have enough energy in this world to do so. One way in which to strengthen your guardian angel is to share whatever good karma comes from your actions with them. For example, if you spend each morning in mediation for 15 minutes, make a prayer at the end saying that you will share any good karma that comes from the mediation with your guardian angel. Or if you do something good for another person, you may also share this. There are certain laws which transcend both worlds and are at force in both. One is the mind, another is karma. Both of these is able to help strengthen your own guardian angel.
So first of all know that you’re are never alone and that there’s always someone with you that loves you. Whether you can see them or not. Then start sharing some of your good karma with your special companion and try to keep a focused and neutral mind (we’ll talk more about that later) to build up any possible positive influence they can have in your life. Lastly, test this for yourself. Try to make clear requests of your guardian angel to help you in your everyday life and see what happens. Remember, if you’ve truly been able to connect with them, the answers will always be accurate.
