Angels are real, and even though logic might not explain the existence of these supernatural beings, reality does. In fact, it is strongly believed each of us has a guardian angel.
It is also possible that some people have more than one guardian angel watching over them.
According to some experts, there are actually three guardian angels for each of us. The first guardian angel corresponds to our physical body, while the second corresponds to our emotions and feelings, and the third our intellect.
In addition to a guardian angel, you also have an archangel assigned to you. The easiest way to know your guardian angel is first to understand the guardian archangel assigned to you.
Determining Your Guardian Angel Based On Name And Birthdate
To determine your guardian angel, you need your name and your birthdate.
The process starts by taking into consideration the full name initials you were assigned at birth. So, you have to disregard your marriage name or any other name changes you made for this purpose. After all, your guardian angel predates such name changes.
Each of the letters making up your initials represents a number between 1 and 9, and that is how your name will help you determine your guardian angel.
Here are the numerical assignments for the letters:
A, J, and S = 1
B, K, and T = 2
C, L, and U = 3
D, M, and V = 4
E, N, and W = 5
F, O, and X = 6
G, P, and Y = 7
H, Q, and Z = 8
I and R = 9
Once you have assigned a number to each letter in your initials, you should add them up.
For instance, if your initials are A, D, G, the total would be 1+4+7, which is 12.
The second step is adding the numbers in your birthdate. For instance, if the above person was born on 10/08/1993, the total would be 31.
The grand total of the two numbers would be 31+12, which is 43.
From there, you should add the numbers 4 and 3, which would give you the number 7, which is the number of the guardian archangel assigned to you. The number 7 represents Raphael, the archangel of healing and truth.
Here are the 9 archangels for other number combinations.
1. Archangel Raguel – Means the friend of God. The archangel of justice and harmony.
2. Archangel Uriel – Means flame of God. The archangel of wisdom.
3. Archangel Jophiel – Means beauty of God. The archangel of beauty and peace.
4. Archangel Haniel – Means joy of God. The archangel of joy and grace.
5. Archangel Jeremiel – Jeremiel means mercy of God. The archangel of visions and dreams.
6. Archangel Michael – Michael means he who is as God. He is the leader of God's army.
7. Archangel Raphael – Raphael means he who heals. The archangel of healing and truth.
8. Archangel Raziel – Raziel means secret of God. He is the keeper of secrets.
9. Archangel Ariel – Ariel means lion of God, the archangel of nature.
Now that you have figured out your guardian angel, you are very close to finding out who your guardian angel is.
All you have to do is contact your guardian archangel through meditation.
That means you have to reach a meditative state, which might not be an easy feat for a beginner. To move things along, you should find a quiet room and block out any distractions.
Once you enter the meditative state, ask your higher self the name of your guardian angel and it will pop in your head.
Knowing this name will make you feel peaceful and delighted. Also note that some people think that you cannot know the name of your guardian angel, although the angel exists.

Signs You've Been Visited By Your Guardian Angel
When your guardian angel visits you, you will know. All you have to do is look out for signs that you have had an angelic visitation.
The angel can communicate to you through dreams. The angel can also be revealed to you through numerology and symbolism.
Additionally, if you feel a presence around you even though you are alone, know that you might have a guardian angel close by.
It is also possible for a child or animal to see something you can't see. Children and animals can pick up on cues adults miss.
Some people believe that other visible signs that an angel is in your presence include seeing a feather, a rainbow, sudden changes in temperature, muffled voices, tingling at the crown of your head, strangely-colored orbs, presence of a sudden sweet smell, and butterflies.
You can also see angels in the clouds. The image might not be so clear and might appear like shadows or shapes like hearts.
To get in touch with your guardian angel, you can go out in nature and find someplace peaceful and undisturbed.
Also remove any restrictions from your body such as watches, bags, tight clothes, or hats to allow the energy around you to flow more naturally.
After that, some bit of meditation starting with deep breaths can help invite the angel into presence. You can then use your inner voice to speak to your guardian angel.
The Importance Of Having A Guardian Angel
A guardian angel exists for your own benefit.
The guardian angels offer us guidance along a path of goodness. They, therefore, act as trustworthy advisors, and they stay by our side and guide us towards salvation.
This angel will be on your side when you are being fought by strong invisible forces in your life. That is why you might not notice their presence in your life as much.
Another important role of a guardian angel in your life is bringing messages from God and understanding what it means.
A guardian angel is an invisible friend who is always by your side. Unlike what some people think, your guardian angel is not someone you know, like a close friend or a family member.
