Calling Your Angels: Crystal Angelic Communication
By Sonia Acone
We’ve all found ourselves asking (out loud or to ourselves) for assistance from the Universe from time to time, although many people may not even realize it at the time. For example, you’re on your way to a job interview and you say (or think), “Oh, please let me get this job.” Or in other situations you may find yourself saying, “Please let me pass this exam,” or “Keep my kids safe.” What we’ve been doing all along is calling on our angels for assistance or guidance. When you put a question or intention out into the Universe, the angels, which happen to be messengers and guides, hear your call for aid and are prepared to help. And, since angels are energetic beings and crystals are energetically-charged conduits, it stands to reason that using crystals to communicate with our angels is a match, well, made in Heaven, so to speak.
So, how do you communicate with the angels using crystals? Ask yourself this: do I want to speak with a particular angel (my guardian angel, an Archangel, or another angel that resonates with a particular issue/day/month/zodiac sign, etc.), or do I want to speak with, basically, any one of the angels who may help with my situation? You might want to learn your own guardian angel’s name and this is done by simply sitting quietly, clearing your mind, and just asking. You may get a picture in your mind, or a name or nothing at all...yet. Sometimes it takes a while, but you may get a “sign” a few hours or days later, where a certain name keeps popping up in your mind or you see that name written in numerous places over time.
Another method of finding your angel’s name is by writing down the letters of the alphabet on index cards or small pieces of paper, spreading them out and, using a pendulum, allow it to move over the letters. You may find that the letters are jumbled, so you might have to rearrange them.
Now that you have your angel’s name, and have that “warm and fuzzy” feeling of being safe and secure surrounded by hugging arms (admit it, you do!), you can start to communicate with your angel wherever and whenever you want. How cool is that? Of course, you can always just ask the angels in general for guidance and either way, you’re going to want to have some crystals on hand to help with your communication. Crystals are like sound waves or giant speaker systems that send our intentions/questions out into the Universe so that the angels can hear them better.
What crystals does one use and how? Clear Quartz crystals, especially spheres, are the most universal stones to use when communicating with the angelic realm. Just holding one in your hand, clearing your mind and stating your intention or question is all it takes. You can always carry (tumbled) or wear your crystals (jewelry) throughout the day. Some angels, such as the Archangels, resonate with certain crystals better than others. In addition to Clear Quartz, for example, Archangel Michael is associated with Agate, Amber, Herkimer Diamond, Imperial Topaz and Rainbow Aura Quartz. For a list of crystals associated with more of the Archangels, see this series: http://www.healingcrystals.com/Crystals_and_Archangels___Series_Intro_Articles_1789.html. However, as a general rule of thumb, here is a list of crystals that can aide in angelic communication in no particular order:
Aqua Aura Quartz
By no means exhaustive, these crystals can better enhance your communication with higher realms. Use your intuition or “gut” feeling when choosing crystals, as some angels will actually choose them for you, giving you a bit of a nudge in the right direction. Whether you are holding the crystal in your hand or carrying it around in a pocket or purse, you can be sure that your angel is listening and guiding you. Blessings to you all!
