When I use the term ‘angel’, I’m using it as an umbrella term to describe anyone who helps us.
– Doreen Virtue
Despite the variety of our religious backgrounds, I think that at one point or another we have all acknowledged the existence of angels. Even if some people don’t believe in angels in the ‘traditional’ sense of the word (winged, tall and luminous beings that are more prominently mentioned in the Christian tradition); there are moments in life that open our eyes to the fact that there is a larger Universe that contains many unknown factors that include such phenomenon as support and grace at the least expected time or in the least expected way.
Our angels may be the spirits of our ancestors or loved ones. We can feel them with us at all times, if we pay attention; but their presence tends to become stronger when we face particularly challenging moments. Sometimes we may even see them in our dreams. Other times, the angels manifest in our closest friends; co-workers or relatives. How many times have we forgotten that they are there to watch over us, until a time comes when something happens and they are immediately there – ready to help us, to protect us and to catch us when we fall.
In a spiritual sense, we are never alone. The positive energies we gather throughout our lives; as well as the beautiful memories, remain with us. We also attract into our lives different spirits and persons, or even creatures (dogs, cats) who become our angels in every sense of the way. Sometimes we don’t realize how many angels we have in our lives because they are subtle; and only come to the rescue when we need them the most. Wouldn’t it be great if we could acknowledge them on a daily basis, so that we can constantly feed into them our love, and our gratitude?
