No matter what god or higher power you believe in, we are all part of a collective consciousness, both in this world and the next. Whether your reading comes from tarot, angels or archetype cards we are delving into that collective consciousness. If you are present with a psychic or clairvoyant who has strong connections, you may be connected to individuals but more likely you will be communicating with part of this universal energy which connects us all. Much of the connection comes through our own energies and this is particularly true of online readings.

Some of us are born to be leaders and some followers. The archetype shows up when perhaps we need to alter our inner beliefs about which we are. If you have a strong faith then this is likely to relevant to religion but can equally well refer to home life or career. Reversal is usually a warning to remind us that it is a rare person that can lead ALL the time and sometimes we need to put our ego aside and accept that we don’t always know what is best.
The angel associated with The Follower is The Angel Of Faith
Belonging to the REALM: Heaven of Creation, The Angel of Faith is in the group known as Virtues.
ANGELIC FUNCTION: To help mankind find faith in God and His angels
GIFTS FOR THE EARTH: This angel can help us to have faith when things are difficult; express our faith in the goodness of life; let faith be our guiding light throughout our lives
We may find, when life’s trials are weighing heavily on us, that we can find the faith that all will come right. This faith sustains us through the hard times. We may sometimes stumble along and lose our way, but faith that all is ultimately for our highest good can raise us above our doubts and despair. Faith is the belief that whatever it is you are asking God to deliver is already on its way. Faith is the acceptance of uncertainty and the firm belief that all comes right in the end. In this age of instant gratification we lack the opportunities to express our faith except when grave crisis comes along. Faith is something that only we can choose to develop for ourselves; no one can give it to us or even tell us how to cultivate it. People can tell us about it and recount their own personal experiences but essentially it comes to each of us from a deep inner connection with ourselves.
Life is really very simple when we have faith. We can follow our heart and live a committed and meaningful life in the faith that we are fulfilling a plan. We rise above our limited egos to have faith in the knowledge that this is a benign and loving universe and that we are a part of the catalyst which is changing the world to a better place.
Faith helps us to wait in patience for the light when we can see only the darkness in front of us. It is an essential component for life to have faith that whatever our destiny is, it is right for us. Faith is an ever-deepening knowledge that we are guided, loved and protected at all times. We need only surrender to that love to let the purpose of our lives be fulfilled.
We can pray to The Angel of Faith to help us renew our faith in the process of life. It will help us to accept those things which we cannot change, as well as all that has been given us to work with and refine in our lives. Ultimately, it will carry us through rough and difficult transitions and help us to renew our love for Self and humanity. The Angel of Faith is there to help us bridge the gap between this material, worldly life and the spiritual plane.
