There are no slacker angels. There is no Archangel Chet, who would rather eat nachos while playing video games than respond to our requests for help. Angels are angels, not human. It is their job and their joy to support us. When we free ourselves from any beliefs of what they can or can’t do, we become even more receptive to the their help.
The system that works well is to let the angels know what we would like and to hand that completely over to them. Our job in this is to let go of all expectations about how things “should” happen. They will provide us with actions steps to take, which often involves a shift of focus (off of a problem and onto peace). We are then free to witness the angel’s work, often providing a result beyond what we thought possible.
