Guardian angels affect risk-taking

Guardian angels affect risk-taking

You might assume that having a guardian angel watching over you would result in more risk-taking, but a new study has shown that the opposite is actually true.

Professor David Etkin from York University in Canada interviewed 198 people and discovered that 68 per cent of those who believed in angels said it affects how willing they are to take risks.

Indeed, a clear majority of this group revealed they don't tend to take risks such as breaking the speed limit, which non-believers are more likely to do.

The research paper is published in the journal SAGE Open and Professor Etkin said he was surprised by the discovery, as it was the exact opposite of what he had theorised before carrying out the interviews.

You might wonder how you can get in contact with your guardian angels if you're among the people who believe they are watching over you.

If this is the case, then psychic Liz Dean had a few tips in an interview with the Daily Express. She suggested watching out for signs and symbols.

"Sometimes the sign is finding a white feather or you may see the word 'angel' several times in one day. When you see the symbol, trust your intuition and know that angels are nearby," she commented.

Other indications might include repeating numbers on clocks or receipts, with the number four particularly significant for pointing towards the angels being ready to help you.

In case the signs aren't appearing or you're failing to notice them, it is possible to directly ask the angels for a signal. Liz recommends going outside into a place defined by nature, such as a garden or park.

Sit or stand quietly, then close your eyes and ask for a sign. When you open them again, really look at your surroundings.

Is there anything there that you hadn't noticed before? You might want to look to the sky, as these signs can appear as cloud formations.
