I agree with Erin. I used to ask to see my guides or angels all the time, hoping they would be projected in front of me in some way, but it never happened (although i do hope at some time it could happen!!) anyway It didn't, and sometimes I would find myself down and out and almost as soon as I asked for an angel_ one of my cats would always come over to me. I brushed it off at first and told myself it was wishful thinking. but as time went and an incident of seeing 25 hawks in one day - I found an answer I had not been aware of for years. My guides talk to me through the symbolism of animals i believe. Various animals seem to show up around me (ones that shouldn't be in this area. They all seem to have meaning to the events in my life.
And if I don't seem to notice my little angel the cat will bring them to me. She has brought me more than mice I might add - robins, sparrows, flying squirls, bunnies, gophers ( and not all them are dead when she brings them to me.
Start noticing things around you, you'll be amazed how our guides try to comminicate with us.
Although Personally I think it might be easier if the just knocked on my door and delivered the message in clear plain english, !! But that takes the fun out doesn't it.
