Guardian Angel Appears
When I was a child I used to have a lot of nightmares. My mother told me to pray to God when I had these nightmares and he would take them away, but sometimes these dreams were so frightening that I couldn’t go back to sleep because I was afraid I would have it again. One day my mom put a picture of Jesus up on my bedroom wall, and she said that he would protect me. I was comforted by that picture and my mom’s gesture. When I would have a bad dream I would pray to God and when I fell asleep the dream would be gone.
One night I was awoke to a breeze in my room and when I opened my eyes there was a beautiful woman standing next to me. She wore a white gown and had a beautiful light to her. She never spoke but I could feel that she was there to protect me, and after that night I had no more nightmares. Thanks to my Guardian Angel!
Angel of Protection
From Rob Jacobs, Los Angeles, CA
One day toward the end of 1999, I asked my father if he would like one of my angel art pieces to hang on the wall above his bed in his retirement home. He enthusiastically said, “yes,” and chose “Angel 5.” Then the following words came out of my mouth: “this angel will protect you.” I believe this was truly a spiritually-evoked statement, because about six months later this angelic premonition came to pass, which literally saved my father’s life.When I visited my father, who resided at a retirement hotel in Westwood, California, the ritual was to call him first, planning our visit together, which I did every time, without exception. Heading home from my studio one day, the thought “see your father” flashed in my head. It was so strongly pronounced that I immediately turned around and headed for Westwood. I had not called him or planned to see him that day, but “see your father” kept pounding in my head.
My heart was racing by the time I got to his room on the seventh floor. I banged on the door, but all I could hear was the television blaring. I ran down to the office, got the staff to open the door, and found him lying on the floor, unconscious. It took the paramedics only a few minutes to reach us, and they were able to revive him from insulin shock. Without the paramedics help, he would have been gone. I knew then, without a doubt, that the angel hanging over his bed had protected him by acting as a messenger to me. He had been plucked from his body’s eternal rest. However, a year later, he passed on peacefully during the night. He was ninety-three years old and had lived in every decade of the Twentieth Century.
If we live our lives in the light of our own angels, then we will live, as God lives, without fear. As God is real, our angels are real, and they are here to help, guide and protect us in every way. They are not just hanging on walls, or sitting on tables; our angels are within us, and all around us. All we have to do is realize this wonderful truth.
Saved by the Angels!
From T.L., San Luis Obispo, CA
In March of 1995, the Angels told me that I was going to be involved in a serious head-on car accident and that they would protect me and I would be alright. This was the first time I had a direct experience of the Angels! They assured me I would not be hurt and told me not to worry. Despite their loving presence and assurance, I deliberately pulled over to delay my travel for 20 minutes, thinking that if I did this, I could change my fate and avoid the accident.
As I was driving along at 55 MPH on the freeway, a man came across the divider and hit my car, crashing into the driver’s side door. As my car slid across the freeway, the accident continued to worsen and caused a five-car pileup. Some of the cars flipped over and several people died due to the severity of impacts. However, all the while, I was not afraid. I knew the Angels were taking care of everything, and I felt completely at peace.
There were a few military reserve people involved in the accident, and they helped me out of the wreckage of my car as the three ambulances and highway patrol officers were arriving on the scene. Later, as I was standing next to my car, an officer said ‘How terrible- the driver of this car must have been killed.’ And I replied, ‘Oh no, I was the driver!!’ He shook his head no, looked at the car again to inspect the damage on the driver’s side, and insisted that the driver would have definitely been killed.
Even the tow truck driver, when we were arranging to remove the vehicle, offered the consoling words, ‘I am so sorry for the loss in your family.’ He had never seen a wreck like that where the driver had survived.
Despite the obvious conclusion that I should be dead from such a horrible accident, I came through the accident without even a single cut. I felt a few slivers of glass in my hair later when I washed it, and glass was embedded in the car seat when I returned to look at it, but I was completely unscathed.
I would never have reacted in the peaceful way I did without that guidance. I believe in Angels and know without a doubt that they are watching over me!
Help is on the way…
From D.L., New York, NY
I had just driven hundreds of miles from New York to a rural part of Vermont, and it really was ‘a dark and stormy night…’ The rain was coming down in sheets, there were no lights to be seen anywhere, and suddenly my car engine failed. I immediately asked for help from the Angels, but there didn’t seem to be anyone at hand. But, as my car was coasting to a stop at the side of the road, I saw headlights coming over a hill. Before I even came to a complete stop, this car had pulled over behind me. It was a first responder and his family on their way home. He offered to give me a ride to where I was staying. The next morning, when I returned to my vehicle, I discovered that it had broken down less than Â¼ mile from the only place that could fix this problem within 100 miles! I often call upon Angels for help and immediately appreciated their presence and help with what otherwise could have been a difficult and frightening experience.
Connect with your Angels
7 Steps to help you connect with your Angels
Asking an Angel for help is one of our most powerful spiritual practices. We can ask the Angels for immediate help at any time and in any place.
A Jewish proverb says that…
“Every blade of grass has an Angel bending over it saying, ‘Grow, Grow!’”
Just as every person has one or more Guiding Angels that help and assist them, every human activity – partnerships, businesses, organizations and relationships – also have one or more Angels that preside over offerings of grace, assistance and blessings for them. Call upon your Angels whenever you are in need.
Angels offer us help 24/7; the more receptive we are, the more help they can give us. If you diminish your receptivity, you limit the Angels’ ability to help you. Create your own invocations, or prayers, that specifically call for the help you need. Realize that when you call upon an Angel, what really happens is that you open yourself into greater receptivity to their assistance.
Angels work with everyone regardless of personal histories and beliefs. Angels are infinite and omnipresent – your request does not diminish them in any way, nor does it affect their ability to be with and help everyone else at the same time. They exist beyond our experience of time and space. They respond to everyone with complete unconditional love.
Connect with your inner divine child as you call upon the Angels and ask for help. Your inner divine child is whole, innocent and true — and recognizes Angels as true and trustworthy gifts of Creator. This will help create openness, receptivity, excitement, eagerness and wonder as you prepare to receive the gifts your Angels have prepared for you.
Practice doing this especially during your time of invocation and prayer. Place every issue, problem, worry, and fear, as well as every good intention and positive outcome you imagine as the result of your request, into the hands of your Angels. Let go and release all expectations of how your request will be answered.
Find and express genuine appreciation and gratitude for your life exactly as it is. If you are struggling with this, ask the Angels to help you to find the love that is present in whatever difficulty you are facing. Have patience with this and let go of any expectation of how the love may be revealed to you. Love is infinite and you will find ever-deepening levels of your awareness to presence of love as you follow this practice.
Every prayer is answered and grace is always given. If you fear that your prayer will not be answered, then ask for help in understanding and seeing your answered prayer more clearly. Trust that you will see the love in every answered prayer. You are known completely and loved unconditionally by the Angels. Nothing that will serve you is ever withheld from you.
Accept the opportunity and act upon it immediately. Angelic help is infinite and unlimited—you can not use it up or run out of it. You cannot ask for “too much” and the Angels are joyously happy to give to you without limit. The faster you act, the faster you receive more assistance!
Then Remember to …. Celebrate yourself exactly as you are in the moment
Leave any critical judgments or negative feelings about yourself, your life, or others in the hands of the Angels for healing. Even if it is just for a few moments, let go of everything that is not of love for yourself and everything around you. In this moment of surrender much more can done for you by the Angels than you can accomplish on your own. Acknowledge yourself for making a choice of love and reaching out for the Angels. Thank the Angles for thier assitance. Set your intention for a loving deepening of the Angels relationship with you.
