Creating an Angel Altar
by John Pacifico and The Angels
For the longest time I've been getting intuitive nudges to make an angel altar for my home. I kept putting this off since I had no inclination to build one, but could not dismiss the fact that the angels thought it was a good idea. So after much consideration I decided to finally make one, since I could not deny my intuitive feelings. It's been said that angel altars are a wonderful way for you to gift the angels with a place to dwell in your home. It's as if you're asking them to set up, along with your help, a small space for them in your home that's just for them. Also the energies of this small space will be different and vibrate a bit higher than anywhere else. It's as if you're making a higher vibrating abode which in turn will radiate this energy outward to the rest of your house.
All you need to do to start is by asking the angels, your guardian angels, the angels of making angel altars and any other angels you wish to work with (in my case I felt the need to include archangel Rafael), to help you construct this alter. Tell the angels you wish their input, and guidance to make this altar very special and joyful and blissful and healing. You can tell them anything you wish and even ask them to give you wonderful ideas of what to put on it. I know from my first recollections, that I had this "pull" towards ringing the altar with small pieces of rose quartz, I actually had a vision of this, a quick flash presented itself in my mind (I mention this because as soon as you decide to make an altar and ask the angels for help, ideas and quick flashes or inner pictures of what the angels suggestions would be will flood your mind). I have all sorts of crystals on my altar as well as an angel stature given to me by a dear friend, I have a white angel candle plus some pictures of angels…. but I think the most important thing on my alter are photographs of loved ones, which make it very special indeed.
In an angel book called "Spirit Guides and Angel Guardians" by Richard Webster, there is a whole chapter which can be very helpful to this process. I'd like to put in some of the information from this chapter just to give my readers an idea of what's out there:
"As soon as I walked into Sarah's home I could feel the energy all around me. It was an astonishing, enveloping feeling that was comforting, soothing and spiritual. I looked around the living room for some sign as to where all this energy was coming from. When Sarah left the room to check on the dinner, I got up and walked around. The energy seemed to be coming from a small side table that stood against one wall, next to the grandfather clock.
The energy was definitely spiritual, but there seemed to be nothing special about the table. It was made of mahogany and was obviously very old. On top were several framed photographs, including one of the friend I was staying with.
I was still standing in front of this table when our hostess returned. Sarah stood in the doorway, a half-smile on her face, waiting for me to say something. "This table," I said. "There's something spiritual about it. I could feel it as soon as I walked in. What is it?"
Sarah beamed. "I'm glad you can feel it," she said. "It's what keeps me going. That's my angel altar." Over dinner she told me about her altar
"It stared as a place where I could call on my guardian angel," she explained. "It was not originally an altar. I just wanted somewhere in the house where I could feel especially close to my guardian angel, and I also wanted a place for her. It worked out better than I thought it would."
Sarah began by placing a Bible on the table, thinking that this would make the table and immediate surroundings more spiritual.
"But it didn't work," she told us. "It only began working when I put a few of my most valued possessions on it" After a week or two I changed them to see what would happen. Then I tried crystals, and finally I put my precious photographs on it. For some reason, that really made things hum. My altar has transformed the whole house. It used to be gloomy and sort of sad, but now it's vibrant and happy. The house seems to have moved from permanent winter into perpetual summer."
"How do you contact your guardian angel at your altar?" "That's easy." Sarah smiled. "She comes whenever I want, but I always feel so close to her when I'm by the altar. I sit down in that chair over there, and immediately start talking, and my angel responds."
"What else do you do with your altar?"
"Everything that comes in or goes out of the house stops at my altar for a second or two. Even the groceries, I believe that putting things on my altar blesses them. If I have a gift for someone, I always rest it on my altar after I've wrapped it. That gives the present so much more power and energy. It goes straight on my altar and gets charged with angel energy."
"What do the photographs do?"
Sarah shrugged. "I think it must be because they're photographs of people I love. Those feelings of love must make it a special spot for my angel."
In closing Richard Webster has this to say about making your own angel altar:
"By setting up an angel altar and using it regularly, your relationship with your guardian angel, and the entire angelic kingdom, will become closer than ever before. You probably know what it feels like to have a special close friend with whom you can freely discuss anything at all. If you use your angel altar, your relationship with your guardian angel will be thousands of times better than that. Your angel altar can transform your life."
I'd like to include a short-channeled message from the angels about altars:
"Greetings our beloved friends! We wish you the very best of holiday tidings! Building a small altar just for the angels in your home can have such wonderful energetic affects on everyone who lives there that we would like to suggest you give yourself this gift of an angel altar this Christmas season. The power, the love, the healing, the bliss the heavenly angels can bestow upon you while sitting near your altar can be amazing. We the angelic kingdom will be very happy to help you set this up. Just ask us, and we'll immediately get to work for you. Our beloved energies will blend with yours and become this incredible symphony of love. Please invite us in, we would love to dwell in your homes, and in turn help you create heaven on earth. The key here with this altar is bringing us closer, asking us to be with you all the time, and making us all loving friends. We know this may sound a bit hum-drum but the energetic consequences of this will be astounding. Do consider this wonderful gift to yourselves. We share this with you and intend to be as present in your life as you'll allow us to be. Think of us often, ask us as many questions as you desire, call out to us for help all day long, for we never tire of your requests, our love for you spands universes. Come join us in the heavenly fun of being in the presence of the Creator, grow close to us and feel our energies blend.
As always, we wish you all the best, this holiday season can be a profoundly spiritual one, one of such warmth and love that you'll be forever wondering why you waited so long to share our presence."

Peoples response to this Angel article on the message board "Indigo Rising":
"That looks like a great idea! I figure since I work with some of the angels it seems only natural. As soon as I responded I dug up a photo I did on an angel in Cambridge and printed it to use as part of the alter. I need to read up more to see what I need, or rather ask for their help to build what is right for me!" – Indigo Eyes –
"Yeah good stuff J.P ...." – Sir Chi -
