Whether you realize it or not, you play a part in the divine plan of creation. Once you recognize this, you can gain access to the immense power of the Universe. It’s simple: when you engage the right celestial helpers, anything becomes possible. In Hiring the Heavens: A Practical Guide to Developing Working Relationships with the Spirits of Creation, author Jean Slatter explains how she learned to hire the Heavens and shares a fresh, revitalized way that we can bring spirituality into our everyday lives. We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from the book.

Just for fun, imagine that the spiritual world is every bit as diverse as our own physical world. Imagine that it possesses every personality, style, skill, interest, motivation, talent, and ability that we humans do. For example, here on Earth we find people with all kinds of personality traits. Some are funny, some are analytical, some are spontaneous or assertive or efficient. We also find people with every possible talent, ability, and job description. Some are exceptional as teachers, some as negotiators, some as gardeners or counselors or child-care providers.

Now imagine that all of these characteristics and job descriptions also exist in the nonphysical dimension, that every subject has a match in the spiritual realm. Science, mathematics, art, music, philosophy, construction, and every other possible arena all have their spiritual doubles. For a talent or ability to exist here on Earth, its corresponding nonphysical energy must also exist.

Next, imagine that this entire universe of celestial experts and attributes is yours for the asking. Imagine that the Spirits of Creation are standing ready to assist you in making your world. Believe that not only is the power to summon that creativity flowing through you, it is your divine right — divine assignment, even — to wield it. 

I have seen that what I’ve just described is true. How could this reality change your life? What if all of these skills, traits, and talents were indeed at your fingertips?
The Universal Yellow Pages

Let’s go even further and imagine that each of us has access to the expansive, unabridged, revised-every-minute Yellow Pages of the Universe. Next time you’re in need of a special talent or skill, let your imagination do the walking! Whatever project or need you may have, I invite you to open the Universal Yellow Pages and choose the professionals with the perfect skills to assist you.

If a talent or ability exists here on Earth, the Universal Yellow Pages has a section for it. In fact, even if you’ve never heard of anyone with the exact package of skills and traits you’re looking for, you can be confident that somewhere in the Universe, precisely what you need is lined up and ready to serve you, just waiting to be asked.

This concept is easy to work with because it utilizes a template you are already comfortable with. Your conscious mind is familiar with the process of hiring from the physical Yellow Pages, so to imagine doing the same thing in the nonphysical dimension is also a simple process. Suddenly, connecting with Spirit becomes as conceivable as any other endeavor. You create the thought, you bring in the talent and energy and ability, and then your request begins to fulfill itself. 

Contemplate for a moment how easily some things just fall into place as if they were meant to be, how chance meetings serendipitously occur as if written in a play. What about the way you sometimes get an impulse to go somewhere that puts you in the perfect place at the perfect time? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to increase the frequency of these amazing so-called coincidences? That’s what can happen every day when you open the Universal Yellow Pages and let the Universe arrange and orchestrate the details of your intentions.

Think Heavens First

On the physical plane we always seem to be dealing with limited resources: not enough money, not enough time, not enough people or experts. If we switch our perception to the Universe, those restrictions don’t apply, so just imagine that you have all the money, time, and resources in the world to hire whatever kind of assistance your mind can come up with. 

Let’s say you’re planning a trip to another country. I encourage you to think about the heavenly resource pool first and hire a spiritual travel agent and a spiritual activities coordinator to help make it the most enjoyable visit ever. But don’t stop there. Remember, your invisible helpers can facilitate anything you think of. You can bring in a spiritual tour guide to show you around, a spiritual translator to bridge the language gap, and a spiritual comedian to make sure there’s plenty of laughter during the trip.

Likewise, if you want a new house, think Heavens first and hire a spiritual real-estate agent.

Ready for a better job? Get some inspiration from a spiritual job hunter.

Looking for a new car? Hire a spiritual car salesman.

Feeling overextended? Ask for a spiritual time manager.

Having trouble with your computer? Requisition a spiritual computer tutor to figure out how to solve the problem. 

Feeling uneasy about driving in an unfamiliar neighborhood alone? Call spiritual 911 and request a celestial police escort.

Are you getting a feel for this? You can enhance every aspect of your life by tapping into the aptitudes of the Universe. Help from the Divine can facilitate everything you do. Think Heavens first, and you’ll thank Heavens!
Angels for Hire

My guidance wants you to know that there are thousands of unemployed angels. Don’t ever think your problem is too trivial for you to call upon divine assistance. Don’t ever think you might be bothering the celestial helpers. You’re not bothering them; you’re giving them a job! Think of the world of Spirit as someone you can talk to about anything — or nothing in particular. There’s no reason to put on airs or speak in a stiff, formal voice. Spirit knows you. Be real, be spontaneous, be silly — be anything that makes you feel close to this incredibly warm and loving energy. Know that Spirit is honored to be included in every detail of your life. Truly, this is where you’ll find unconditional love and the best friend you could ever have.
