Angel Cards – How Do They Work?
Most people believe in angels, even though they have not seen one. The thought of spiritual beings being all around to protect, guide, and help us is simply comforting. For those who want the opportunity to connect with angels in a unique way, connection using a deck of angel cards are the way to go.
Angel cards are cards that access angels or angelic beings. They are similar to tarot cards in the way that they are cards, but they differ in terms of the way higher energies are accessed. Tarot cards rely more on esoteric symbols and numerology, whereas angel cards rely more on channeled information from the angelic realms. There is a connection between the seekers questions and the energetic interaction with the angels.
Angel card readings
You can do angel card readings yourself or you can work with an angel card reader. In the book Angelic Messenger, Meredith Young-Sowers states that there are six realms that angels can give us instruction about:
- Reflection, which can teach us about our spiritual selves
- Partnership, which can teach us about growth in relationships
- Integration, which can teach us about integrating mind, body, and spirit
- Alignment, which can teach us about aligning with our soul’s purpose
- Rejuvenation, which can teach us about cycles of life renewal
- Nourishment, which can teach us about feeding ourselves things that will nourish mind, body, and spirit.
It is her assertion that an angel card will help us in one or more of these basic six areas. For example, if you attend an angel card reading, you will be able to choose a number of cards from the angel deck. Many times it’s between one and six cards. The angel card reader will line the cards up in a certain spread and each card’s location may have a certain meaning as to why it’s where it is.
Ask open-ended questions
You can ask the angels to answer a question for you or give you general direction. It’s best not to ask “yes” or “no” questions, but rather open-ended questions. For example, it probably won’t serve you well to ask whether you should break up with your boyfriend or not. Instead, ask how you can go about the relationship in the best way that will serve your primary purpose in life.
The angel card reader work in a similar way as a Tarot card reader. The psychic will take some time to get acquainted with you and find out about what questions you’re seeking answers for. He or she will allow you to pull your cards and then align them in a certain way. Then, he or she will read each card to you and you can take in the information. You may even want to write it down. Much of the time, the angel cards offer encouragement and inspiration for readers, giving them much wisdom and guidance moving forward.

Before your reading
Before you do your own reading or allow an angel card reader to read for you, center yourself. Get quiet and in a meditative state, as you want to be in your center and not allowing a hundred thoughts to be swirling in your head. Take a few deep breaths and relax. Ask the angelic beings to help you to be directed in the way they wish; in a way that benefits your best interest and the greater good of all.

- In what ways can I better my emotional, physical, and spiritual health?
