How to Give an Angel Reading
An angel reading is similar to a psychic reading, except that you’re directing the questions to guardian angels and spirit guides for the purpose of healing some life area and/or for guidance about someone’s life mission.
It’s best to give an angel reading to a person you don’t know really well, someone who’s open-minded and nonjudgmental. A new friend in a spiritual study group would be an ideal angel-reading partner. Still, you can definitely do a reading for a family member or old friend. It’s just that your ego will scream at you: “You already knew that about this person!” If you can ignore the ego’s rantings that “you’re just making all of this up,” you can give a reading to anyone, whether you know the person or not.
Let’s begin with a mutual angel reading, where you and another person are reading each other simultaneously. Begin by saying a prayer to whomever you’re aligned with spiritually, asking them:
“Please help me to be a clear channel of Divine communication. Please allow me to clearly hear, see, know, and feel accurate and detailed messages that will bring blessings to my partner and me. Please watch over this reading and help me relax and enjoy it. Thank you, and amen.”
Next, sit facing your partner. Then both of you should take a metal object from your body (such as a watch, ring, necklace, belt buckle, hair clip, glasses, or car keys) and hand it to the other person. Each of you should hold the metal object that you received from your partner in the hand that you normally don’t write with. This is the hand where you receive energy-your “receptive hand.”
Then, hold your partner’s free hand with your own. Place your hands where they’ll comfortably rest for the next few moments, such as on your or your partner’s knees or lap. Now, I’d like to take you both on a vacation, okay? Please close your eyes and breathe in and out very deeply…
Mentally imagine that the two of you are in an exquisite purple pyramid that has magically transported you to a white sandy beach in Hawaii. The purple pyramid lands with a gentle plop on the sand and opens up, forming a natural blanket for the two of you. It is a perfect day in Hawaii, and since this is a completely isolated beach that’s only accessible by boat or plane, you and your partner have total privacy.
You feel the gentle summer breeze blowing across your skin and through your hair. You smell the delicious salt air and hear the waves’ melodic crash upon the shore. You feel a beam of sunlight dance warmly over the top of your head, as if it were going right in and illuminating the inside of your mind and body.
Off in the distance, you notice a pod of dolphins swimming playfully in the ocean. You tune in to these creatures, and you feel them send you a huge wave of Divine love energy. As your heart swells with warmth and gratitude for these beautiful animals and this perfect day on the beach, you realize that you’re one with the dolphins. And then this realization extends even further: You are one with all of the life in the ocean-including the sea turtles and the colorful tropical fish-and you’re also one with the waves, the sand, and the sun.
You realize that you’re one with all of life, including your partner. And so you mentally affirm to your partner, You you … and I are one are I and you … and me are you and … you am I … one I are one. You realize that this oneness that you share is real. Although you may look different on the outside, on the inside you and your partner truly do share one spirit, one light, one love. You mentally affirm to your partner: One love … one love … one love.
As you revel in this knowingness, you also realize that you’re one with all of the angels. As you scan your partner with your physical eyes closed and your spiritual sight wide open, imagine what it would be like if you could see your partner’s angels in your mind’s eye. What might they look like?
Do you see any that look like small cherubs? How about medium-sized angels? Really large ones? You might see these beings in full detail in your mind’s eye, or as fleeting glimpses. Or, you might simply feel or know their presence.
As you continue to scan the space around your partner with your spiritual sight, you might also notice some people who appear to be deceased loved ones. The beings who stand directly behind your partner are usually the person’s deceased parents. Do you see a man or a woman standing directly behind your partner? If so, notice any distinguishing characteristics, such as something unusual that he or she is wearing, eyeglasses, hairstyle, facial hair, eye color, or anything he or she is holding.
Then, scan around your partner’s head and shoulders. Do you see people with light or gray hair who appear to have passed away when they were elderly? What other distinguishing features do you notice about them? How about any people who look as though they passed away when they were middle-aged? Anyone who passed away young? Be aware of details relating to anyone who appears to you, not worrying about whether you’re imagining this or not.
Do you see any animals around your partner? Any dogs or cats? Any small or large animals? What do you notice about their fur? Is it light, dark, or multicolored? Long, medium, or short?
As you scan around your partner one more time, notice any other angels, deceased loved ones, or animals that may be present. If one or more of these beings especially attracts your attention, tune in to them now by holding the intention of connecting with them.
Even if you don’t see anyone around your partner, or you’re unsure of yourself you can still receive accurate messages from your partner’s guides and angels that will bring blessings to him or her. As you breathe in and out deeply, hold the intention of having a mental conversation with these beings.
Then, mentally ask them, What would you like me to know about my partner? Repeat the question as you take note of impressions that come to you in response. Be aware of any thoughts, words, mental pictures, or feelings that come to you as you continue to ask the question What you would like me to know about my partner? Don’t try to force anything to happen. Simply trust that the answers are coming to you now, and notice even the subtlest little thought, feeling, vision, or word that you hear in your mind.
Next, mentally ask your partner’s guides and angels, What message would you like me to tell partner, my from you? Again, be cognizant of any impressions that come to you as thoughts, feelings, visions, or words. Don’t judge or discount these impressions. Simply view them with detachment.
Then, mentally ask your partner’s guides and angels, Is anything there you’d that like to tell me? Be sure to breathe while you take heed of the answer.
Finally, mentally ask theseguides and angels, Is hing ty an there you’d that like me to tell my else partner Again, listen for the response from many levels.
The most important part of giving an angel reading is having the courage to tell your partner everything that you received, even if you’re unsure about the information or worry that it may offend the person (you can always pray for a diplomatic and loving way to deliver potentially offensive messages). While the angel messages may make no sense to you, they will probaby make perfect sense to your partner. Spend the next few moments, then, sharing everything that you saw, felt, heard, or thought during your mutual angel reading.
