You probably know that you have at least one angel with you at all times, your guardian angel, right? And there are also many angels and guides that come in and go out of your life at various times, there to help you and comfort you? They can give you nudges, little whispers, send synchronicities your way, and they can comfort you during difficult times, but they cannot interfere with your free will unless you give them permission to help. Yes, by simply asking your angels for help, you give them the permission they need. And as you speak to and work with your angels, watch this relationship change your whole life in ways you probably never dreamed or imagined.

My friend and working partner Jeannie Barnes, Angelic Channeler (you can learn more about her at, channeled this message from the angels:

We are always around. That just is. Many of us are surrounding you during times of crisis or when the need is great. We can comfort without permission. Our presence in itself is comforting. But if you have a specific issue or problem you are dealing with, we cannot come in and fix it without your permission. We can be there to comfort and gently nudge and give you signs of what to do, but we cannot go in and interfere without your permission.

They also said they can "step in" if there's a life-altering situation that was not part of one's life contract, especially if one's life was at risk and this person was not destined to leave the earth at such a time. In these cases they can intervene without permission.

Jeannie also channeled the words:

A miracle is nothing more than God’s love in action. This is why prayer works.

Remember that when you give your angel permission to help you, it is a partnership. You are working hand in hand with your angels for your highest good. You cannot and must not expect your angel to do everything for you; it is a partnership, a most beautiful partnership. Sometimes they do step in and completely intervene, but usually you are working with them.

Speak to your angels as you would to a friend, out loud, or you can do so in your mind. They hear your thoughts as well as your spoken words. You don't need to get in some yoga or meditation position and have complete quiet or anything. You can talk to them while shopping at the store (okay, you may choose to speak in your mind in this case) or when waiting for the kids to get out of school, or while doing the dishes. You can ask them right now in this moment!

Ask them to show you signs. They will show you they are indeed listening and will grace you with guidance. If you feel unsafe, they can protect you. If you are sad and depressed, they will comfort and bless you. Expect magic and miracles when working with your angels. They often work through synchronicity, meaningful coincidences, to give you messages.

For instance, they may whisper to you to turn right instead of left, and you meet a stranger who becomes your new friend. They may whisper a song to you when you wake in the morning, and in those lyrics is a message that will guide you that very day. They may tell you to look at the clock now! And it may be 4:44 (known to be the angels' sign of the power of God's love) or 11:11, or any number in triplicate to get your attention, or another meaningful string of numbers for you.

More and more people are waking up to signs from the Universe as well as their angels. After I published my book, I Can See Clearly Now: How Synchronicity Illuminates Our Lives, scores of readers have shared their synchronicities that are miraculously mirroring my own synchronicities shared in the book. Not only are their angels nudging them awake at 4:44, as I describe in the book, but they are showing in many ways that this is real, and they are really here for us.

For instance, in I Can See Clearly Now, I speak of the many signs I've had with Chihuahuas. One reader said that "since I have started your book a Chihuahua mix dog keeps appearing at the end of the driveway," and she had "never seen it before these last few days."

Also, I shared the story of how I almost hit a dog while in my car at the very same time Don Henley sang on the radio, "it's about forgiveness, forgiveness," just after I got angry and hurt over a friend's phone call. A reader, shortly after perusing that chapter, had a similar experience of a dog cutting in front of her car. She heard a "light thud," but when she got out found that the white dog was fine and had "almost 'pink' eyes." There was no tag on the dog and the kids who witnessed it said they had never seen the dog before. Earlier that day, she heard Johnny Nash's "I Can See Clearly Now" on the radio, and the very next day she heard another song I shared that I also experienced powerful synchronicities with, Seal's "Kiss from a Rose."

And yet another reader when in the car stated she was going to look for 444s (meaning on license plates, address, signage, etc.) while riding, the moment she stated it, she saw my last name on a building.

Our angels are showing us in magical synchronistic ways that they are very real, and when we experience the magic again and again, we reach a point where we realize that there is so much going on behind the scenes that we've closed our minds to. It is time to open our minds!

Yes, our angels are working hard to get our attention. They most want us to know that we are loved, we are not ever alone, and they want to help us. Again, all you have to do is simply ask...

Jeannie Barnes and myself are leading "Meet Your Angels!" Workshops to help spread the messages from our angels. We have joined forces to bring about greater awareness of God's messengers. Soon after we formulated a plan to do so, synchronicity validated our decision and partnership as I was led to re-read one of my favorite books, The Light Shall Set You Free, by Dr. Norma Milanovich and Dr. Shirley McCune.

It stated that "the angels grow especially restless for they have so many gifts to bring. Their full potential lies as dormant as the trees in winter while they await the calls from Earth's Spiritual Warriors to join forces with their strength." It voiced a call to "reduce the unemployment rate in the Heavens." For all of you who this resonates with, may we work to reduce the unemployment rate in the Heavens.

Author's Bio: 

I am the author of the three-time award-winning book, I Can See Clearly Now: How Synchronicity Illuminates Our Lives, published March 2008 by iUniverse. One of my greatest passions is to spread the word about synchronicity (meaningful coincidences) in order to help others recognize this gift in their lives. You can learn more about this book at

My spiritual path began in October of 1994, when I realized that we are constantly graced with meaningful signs, not mere coincidences, through our relationships, nature, numbers, events--basically all things this world is made up of. In my book I share my twelve-year spiritual odyssey that describes my awareness of these mysterious forces that guide, validate, and help us live our lives. I'm grateful to as another vehicle to share my messages.

I Can See Clearly Now: How Synchronicity Illuminates Our Lives is available on and other online book sites, as well as for order in any bookstore in the world. I also lead workshops about synchronicity and angels, and created the CDs Ask Your Angels for a Message (Meditational) and Feeling Joyful & Abundant in a Changing World (Interactive). Please visit my website for more information at Check out my radio show at, or my blog which features the "Synchronicity of the Month" at If you're on Facebook and love synchronicity, please consider joining "Mary Soliel's I Can See Clearly Now ~ Synchronicity Group."
