What Are Angels?
Angels are messengers from God. They can act as the link through which you can communicate between heaven and earth. Their role is to watch over you, protect you, and guide you along your human journey. The word “angel” comes from Greek word angelos, which means “messenger.” Angels are divine celestial beings who have not experienced living in a human body on the earth plane. God gave you the angels so you would never feel alone or abandoned by God. They vibrate in the same loving energy as God, and they are here to serve and help humanity with compassion, grace, joy, playfulness, and peace.
Throughout history, in almost every culture and religion, there have been stories and validations of the angels and their roles as messengers from heaven to earth. Their presence is portrayed in many different forms. In different religious scripture such as the Bible, the Koran, and the Kabbalah, the angels have been described as healers, messengers, and guides. Artists throughout time have been inspired by angels. Their paintings depict angels in various forms — a glowing light and aura surrounding them, human-like beings with glorious wings, some with a halo above their head or a musical instrument in their hands. Their appearance and purpose may vary throughout the world and its history, but their universal influence over mankind is a presence of love, guidance, and a reminder that we are not alone.
The Bible affirms God's love for all in Psalms 91:11–12 “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”
One important reminder: You were given two gifts to experience in this lifetime: free will and free choice. Whatever choices you make and however those choices play out, the angels are there to watch over in unconditional love. One important point about this gift of free will is that the angels will not interfere in your life unless you ask them. The only time they will intervene is if there is a life-threatening situation and it's not your time to leave this earth plane. This is called divine intervention, and they will do whatever it takes to save your life. Many have shared their personal experiences of divine intervention when they were miraculously saved from a life-threatening situation. So the most important thing to remember when working with these divine celestial beings is to ask for help and guidance when you need it. This opens the doors to invite miracles into your life and to receive clear communication from God and the angels.
