Guides and Angels.

I do believe in Angels or Guides. Although I think many of us become stuck in the words we use to express that feeling of being guided.

Whether you believe in intuition, prophetic dreams, and many other senses of awareness, I believe it is all guided for our benefit. Some of us can experience the sensation of a scent and feel moved to do something specific - a scent can be that of a departed loved one and it moves us to look somewhere for an item we thought had been misplaced and there it is. Some of us feel a touch on our skin and are instantly brought back to a moment where we remember a bit of information that is necessary. And some people see angels.

Personally, I have had more than several occurrences of being guided by something other than my own consciousness. I choose to label it as little as possible since I believe strongly that while I love words and language, I do think that we tend to box ourselves into specific belief systems based on words, on labels and judgments and that what we need to do is feel more and sometimes think less. Otherwise, we run the risk of forgetting that we are here - again, in my opinion - to experience human life and all that it offers us. But that does not mean that we should be disconnected from whatever our source is, and the source often gets lost in the words we use to attempt to explain it.

One can not deny that we are connected to each other and that alone, for me, eliminates the illusion that left to our conscious minds, we can navigate the pathways of our lives on our own.

I do believe that we are our thoughts, however, I do not believe that we are even close to understanding how those thoughts appear. There are too many documented stories of people doing extraordinary things based on a hunch or a physical feeling that came over them suddenly to believe that some sort of wisdom other than our conscious selves is at place in our worlds.

And we, each of us, are someone else angel or guide in ways that perhaps we do not see. We meet, we connect in ways that might be unexplainable, we have different versions of a mutual experience, and then we move on -- guiding each others lives to a better place hopefully. And then, of course, there are experiences such as those I've had where the room is suddenly occupied by something larger than ourselves, something that consumes the air, something that lets us know in that moment that we are not alone, and that everything is going to be okay.

  1. angels, technically, are god's army. mankind, too, or those that eventually become His are part of that army. this is why angels can be found among mankind in a supernatural way. research also about fallen angels and how they also mingled with mankind before and after the great flood.

  2. Beautiful post!
    I know exactly what you mean about labeling.
    I especially resonated with:

  3. Random Student - I'll research about that.

    Anonymous - Thank you for the lovely comment.

    I think many of us look for a specific faith to practice, or a specific way to see the world and our relationship to it.

    But in my own life I have found that labeling what we see and feel is often a path to numbness.

    If we truly are spiritual beings having a human experience, then wouldn't it make more sense to feel both the spiritual and the human aspects as they come to us and let them live their truth without runing them with an expected explanation that might possibly come from someone else's box of crayons?

    I greatly appreciate you are reading my blog/post and adding your feelings.

    Have a fabulous day….:)

  4. hindi pa ako nakakakita ng angels or makaramdam ng presensya niya. Mas mabuti nang may mga taong nasa paligid mo na sila ang tinagurian mong angels ng buhay mo. At mas mabuti na ring maging angel din tayo sa kapwa.

  7. i have 7 angels watching over me..
    angels that were so dear to me.
    'coz of the blinding promises of love,
    they shed their wings and immortality

    now, my angels were mere mortals
    who still guide and protect me..
    mortals without any special abilities...
    human beings doing extraordinary things for me.
