Connecting with your Guardian Angels need not be a difficult task – requiring years of training, practice, or even a great deal of effort. After all, your Guardian Angel is meant to provide you with guidance, assistance, and insight on your life path – specifically tailored to your needs and with your best interests at heart.
Since messages from your guardian angels are meant for you, is there any reason as to why your angel would want your connection to them to be anything less than immediately available, right when you need it? Nope – not at all.
And while you can certainly practice different techniques of forming a connection to your Guardian Angels, such as through meditation, channeling, oracle cards, watching for signs and symbols – you can also connect with your angels easily, as you naturally relax in dream state. In our daily lives, with stress, worry, and the constant chatter of the mind, it can be difficult to become calm, focused, and centered. Isn’t it when you most need the information – in a time of confusion or fear – it’s the hardest to concentrate?
Dreaming is available to all of us. It is the path of least resistance, since during your dream state, you are least likely to doubt what it is you receive. Right now in this moment, you can acknowledge and recall (even if you have to try to think of it!) a time when you had a vivid dream. Perhaps you have a difficult time remembering your dreams, or when you do remember your dreams, it’s few and far between – even still, you’ve had a dream! At least once. And as long as you can remember dreaming even one time, you can connect with your guardian angel to receive message, guidance, and insight as you sleep.
How can you begin to connect with your Guardian Angel with dreams?
1. Set the Intention
Before going to bed, set the intention that you are not only going to have a dream, but that you are going to remember what it was about! Ask then, a question for your guardian angels. You can address one angel in particular, if you are aware of their names, or you can just address them as a group. Ask anything you are interested in knowing, and it’s often most helpful, when you ask your angels to assist you in understanding a situation or finding a solution to a problem. You are free to ask your guardian angels anything that you want to know about or desire to understand on a deeper level. No question is off limits.
If you don’t receive a dream the first night – keep trying – it may take several attempts of setting the intention, falling asleep, and then doing so the next night. Often times, especially if you have a hard time remembering your dreams, your guardian angels are helping you in ‘flexing’ your dreaming muscles. Each night, while you are asleep they are sending you an increasing amount of angelic energy, gently opening the dreaming pathway over a period of several nights. Keep dreaming, and the dream will come.
2. Use Crystals
With crystals next to your bed, specifically crystals that facilitate dreaming – such as blue kyanite, iolite, and amethyst – you can passively improve the clarity of your dream state. On nights when I am particularly interested in receiving guidance – such as when I am going through a difficult time – selecting just one of these stones to place under my pillow can assist in passively amplifying the ability to connect to my guides and angels. You may also choose to sleep with these crystals every night, to improve your dream connection over time, or closer to your intuitive center – with a crystal inside your pillowcase!
In addition to opening my intuitive abilities with helping crystals, I will often call in and symbolically welcome in my guardian angels with crystals. For this, I use selenite and place a piece of selenite on all of my windowsills, to welcome guardian angels into my home. Additionally, I place a large tower of selenite next to my bed. Selenite is used to draw in energy, light and transmit information from the spirit world into the physical. By placing other crystals, such as angelite and celestite, on your nightstand, you are also drawing in and welcoming the Light of your Guardian Angels.
3. Be Open to What you Receive
Many times, I’ve woken up from a dream, and when recalling the details, thought to myself, “What on earth was that? It’s such non-sense!”. Then immediately, I dismissed the information as useless.
Since dreams often include symbols and metaphors to explain the message, it’s important not to dismiss the information immediately. Consider the metaphors, symbols, and signs woven into the dream. Often, when sharing it with someone else, the signs and symbols appear more obvious to an observer of the dream. The reason for this is that the dreamer, often attempts to weave their own interpretation of the dream into what they WANT the dream to say, rather, than what the dream actually meaning. Just as in anything, it is easier for an outside party to ‘see’ what it really going on than it is for you to see it for yourself.
Thus, share what you receive with an intuitive friend, coworker, or partner, and see what their interpretation is. Usually if you share the dream with 2-3 people, you’ll see that several of the interpretations match, or are similar to one another. The symbols, signs, and metaphors that are used in dreams are those that are commonly to you and those around you – they are symbols in your culture. For many of the signs used by Angels to convey a message, most are universal, some are regional, and others are personal – your dream may contain a mix of these tools.
Your Guardian Angels will be working to use signs that will get your attention and encourage your contemplation about the dream itself. Thus, a dream that needs to be thought about, isn’t always one that is to be dismissed. If you’ve set the intention to dream, and then receive a dream – it’s important to be receptive to any message that was sent in your direction.
4. Record the Message (even if it doesn’t make sense right away!)
Often times, your Guardian Angels will deliver a message over the course of several dreams – sometimes recurring over the course of days, weeks, months or even years! With a written journal – whether digital or hand recorded – you have the ability to compare themes in messages, uncover your personal symbols, and find messages that are being delivered over time.
Additionally, once written down, you can return to your dream notes to re-read your previous nights dream with a clear mind, perhaps after you’ve woken up a little bit more. I often find that reviewing dream notes not only helps me remember forgotten parts of the original dream, but also assist me in coming to big realizations that I didn’t see at first – when I was just recording the dream.
How can you take the best notes? Record the dream the minute you wake up – as soon as you are conscious and before you get out of bed in the morning! Recording your angelic message immediately assists you to getting down on paper and in your notes, the most vivid and meaningful symbols – before any of it fades away.
