No, I have not had experiences with Angels. But I believe that (just like with fairies or a devil) you need to believe in them in order to see them or experience them.

I used to believe in Angels, but then one day my 6 year old made a comment that we only believe in the "good" stuff. That woke me up to a new understanding.

To me angels represent the good, as the devil represents the bad. I think our mind can't comprehend that God could talk to us directly so we create in our mind images in order to hear the message.

It's not that they are real or unreal, but that they (images) serve a purpose until the no longer serve a need.


Don't try to grasp with the mind that which is beyond mind.

I believe in angles, especially guardian angels. I have had several experiences that I can not explain how I survived them, except to say that someone, possilbly an angel was looking over me.

I used to joke that angels were about an inch long, because that seems to be the distance my children came to being within bodily harm! I can't tell you the number of times their little heads barely missed the coffee table by an inch....

I've never had an experience myself with angels, that I'm aware of. But I like the quote from Conversations with God: "I have sent you nothing but angels."

And here's a quote from Emmanuel, who speaks from another dimension:

Quote:
Breathe into your hearts your deepest desire
to perceive Beings of Light and put aside any expectations
of how we will be perceived.

You have no idea how limiting expectations can be.
Give yourselves permission, at this very moment, to touch the world of
spirit. All it take is your permission.
We are here. Sigh into it.
Your mind does not know the way.
Your heart has already been there.
And your soul has never left.
Welcome home.

Am I here? Yes, I am here.
Reach out your hand and it will be touched.
If you say, "That's my imagination," so be it.
Then I am a figment of your imagination.
And so are you. And so is your world. And so is your longing.
And so is your love.....

There are many being of various intensities of Light,
physical yes, non-physical certainly,
all stirring around, intent on fulfilling their own Selfhood.
The miracle of God's creation is evident as one watches these darting sparks
of love and consciousness, weaving in and out, lives upon lives touching and leaving, loving and disappointing, but learning, always learning.
It is a tapestry of such magnificence and marvel that I cannot begin to tell you.

Do not despair. There is never a moment, regardless of how it may seem,
when God is not fully aware of every minute flicker of your human awareness.
It is only the shadows of you own self-forgetfulness that cause the darkness to manifest. Your world needs mine, and mine, my dears, needs yours. We must do this together.

As we meet more and more often, threads of golden awareness are weaving our realities together. There will be, at some future time, the most beautiful moment when all the illusion is dispelled and we stand in mutuality and in unity.

In the meantime, it takes a great deal of faith to be human, does it not?
So, who's to say if angels do indeed walk among us?

OK, here is one...

Last winter we had a really bad snow storm, and I had to go pick up my husband at work. The road I had to turn onto was banked and covered with glare ice. On the right hand side is a steep ditch. I carefully and slowly drove out onto the road, and immediately spun out. I really thought that I was going to roll down that ditch. Somehow the car came out of the spin and was on the proper side of the road. I was right there, where I should have been in the ditch and upside down. Instead, I went on my way and made it home again with out another incident. It was amazing.

It doesn't sound like much here, but it seemed to last for hours and it really was amazing that nothing happened to me.
