What Is An Angel

Angelic guidance is divine guidance. Angels are making their presence felt everywhere. Once I started opening myself up to the possibilities of the angelic realm little reminders began catching my eye every day. That brings up the question of what is an Angel? There are lots of Angel definitions that people have used to describe these celestial beings or even used when referring to earth Angels. Lets have a look at a few descriptions I have come across:

What Is An Angel?

~ A force of light with many different types all working for a higher power
~ They have been described as a celestial being that acts as an intermediary between heaven and earth
~ They have been the messenger of deities, which link God and man
~ Kind and lovable people who manifest goodness, purity, and selflessness
~ A divine or semi-divine being who is able to work with humanity for a number of purposes
~ The personification of the concept of holiness
~ A  light of truth, wisdom or guidance perhaps of a coming birth or death either literally or figuratively
~ An androgynous being of a light, fast vibration on a high spiritual hierarchy

Angels In Religion

Religion has try to explain angels and answer the question, what is an Angel? Throughout history religions and spiritualities have embraced angelic beings amongst their midst. The genus “Angelus Occidentalis” is a general term used for a number of angelic species within Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Zoroastrianism. It is believed that Gods word is communicated through these celestial messengers who serve his will.

The Swedish Mystic Swedenborg once said:

“I am well aware that many will say that no-one can possibly speak with spirits and angels as so long as he is living in the body;
Many say it is all fancy, others that I recount such things to win credence, while others will make other kinds of objections. But I am deterred by none of these: for I have seen, I have heard, I have felt”

My Angels Definition:

Personally I feel angels are indeed messengers of a higher realm, spiritual beings that connect with humans on earth when the human is ready to connect Angels can take forms that are easily recognised and identified by the one who is receiving the angelic vision. In other words they appear in forms that are not frightening. Forms that are unique for each individual experiencing them.

An angel is energy, of a high vibration that is essentially invisible to the human eye. Angels are however capable of slowing down this vibration to appear to either the naked human eye (rare) or the third “inner eye”.

Interestingly if you read the physical description of Angels in the bible they are a far cry from the sweet winged cherubs that are littered throughout historical religious art… but I will leave that for another time.

Angels Are Present

To me angelic beings come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, presenting themselves in the form that I need to see, hear or feel at that particular moment in time. I don’t have all the answers about angels, just an incessant curiosity to find out more about angelic beings, welcoming the ones that come and visit me and share what I know with people who are equally curious.
