What is the Meaning of 'Angels'?

By Susan Gregg

When I began thinking about how my life has changed since working with angels. I decided to make an acronym from the word "angels."  Looking at the acronym, I realized it was a list of the six most important lessons I have learned by working with angels.

Find out what 'angels' mean and the lessons angels can teach you.

Acceptance

When I see from an angelic perspective, I have the ability to accept life as it is and make choices based on love. Instead of resisting life or fighting what is happening, I can make my choices based on what I do want to create in my life.
