What do you believe?
Get a blank piece of paper and make some notes about what you believe. What do you think an angel is? Have you ever talked to your guardian angel? What would your life be like if you talked to your guardian angel everyday? What kinds of questions would you ask? How would it feel to know you had a guardian angel watching over you all the time – like your own personal spiritual counsellor?
So what is an angel anyway?
1. A typically benevolent celestial being that acts as an intermediary between heaven and earth, especially in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Zoroastrianism.
2. A representation of such a being, especially in Christianity, conventionally in the image of a human figure with a halo and wings.
3. The last of the nine orders of angels in medieval angelology. From the highest to the lowest in rank, the orders are: seraphim, cherubim, thrones, dominations or dominions, virtues, powers, principalities, archangels, and angels.
4. A guardian spirit or guiding influence.
a. A kind and lovable person.
b. One who manifests goodness, purity, and selflessness.
[Middle English, from Old English engel, or Old French angele both from Late Latin angelus, from Late Greek angelos, from Greek, messenger.]
