Faith is the Key

If you want to see and recognize angels, you’ve got to have faith. Faith is the number one prerequisite for seeing angels. It’s the key that unlocks the door to consciously witnessing angelic manifestations. The Bible talks about faith being ” … the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. … ” (Hebrews 11:1, KJV)

There are numerous, biblical examples that pertain to angels appearing on earth (for a detailed account, see my book, Lessons from my Guardian Angel). One of my favorite examples is when Father Abraham entertains angels in disguise. (Genesis 18:1)  He didn’t know that angels would come calling, but he never stopped moving once they arrived. He served them nonstop, giving them the best he had, even though they were strangers disguised as Arabs, people he’d presumably never seen before in his life. Legend has it that these three “men” were none other than the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.

Incognito

When angels come calling, they come in disguise or, incognito. That’s because angels, 100% made of light, appear so bright in their true form that it would overwhelm—possibly kill—us if we were to see them in their true form. That’s why they appear disguised. Angels can do this because they live in the fourth dimension, one step up from our third dimension world. In the fourth dimension, things like war, hate, crime, lies, and disease do not exist. In the fourth dimension, communication happens on a higher level than on earth. Angels communicate telepathically and speech is only used for creative functions like singing. In order to understand the fourth dimension, we need to perform a radical shift in our thinking.

God’s love

They say that there are millions of angels who worship God on the Mount of the Congregation, positioned in front of his temple in heaven. Angels, however, are not static beings who hang out on clouds twiddling their thumbs. Angels are active beings who move back and forth between higher dimensional space and our third dimension world. As God’s representatives, they have wards and perform missions that God assigns them. Haven’t you heard the testimonials, too numerous to count, where people claim that an angel or angels in disguise rescued them from certain tragedy?

Mysterious creatures

Billy Graham calls angels “God’s secret agents.” I believe that he coined this term because of the mysterious aspect connected with the way angels appear on earth. They must appear disguised in order to be able to complete their heavenly assignments. As we go through our daily lives, we need to be ever ready for the unexpected, the unexpected being the way in which God moves in our lives. It rarely happens the way we think or believe. It’s most often original, amazing and breathtaking.

God bless and may you see angels,

The Name of the Game is Patience

If you want to see angels, one of the things you’re going to have to learn is patience.

There were many times when manifestations were supposed to happen, but didn’t. This is because angels work on their schedule, not mine. Angels appear when they want to, not when I want them to.

It’s imperative, therefore, to follow the instructions your guardian angel gives you, be patient, and not get upset if things don’t happen the way you thought they would or think they should. Manifestations are often aborted for reasons that are outside our purview.

The best thing to do after you’ve received instructions is to wait. Yes, wait. I know, it’s not a lot of fun to just sit around and wait, but that may be precisely what you’ll need to do to learn patience, gain your angel’s trust, and be included more and more in the manifestation process.

The waiting game

In The Truth about Angels, Part I, I talk about how you you may have to strike a pose while waiting. Striking a pose may mean positioning your body in such a way as to not attract attention to yourself as you wait for your angel to manifest. How you do this—and you’ll need to be creative—will depend on your circumstances. I also discuss invisibility moves. This could involve: reading a newspaper, magazine or book; appearing to be absorbed in your cellular phone; picking at your skin, etc. These are very human practices and gestures that make you fit in and make others both accept your presence and not give you a second thought. In other words, performing such practices and gestures will give you the luxury of observing without being noticed.

Practice makes perfect

I also explain how manifestations happen with a certain order. Unlike our third dimension, the fourth dimension—one step up from ours—is very ordered. Angels do things in a certain, prescribed order. They don’t operate with the chaos and confusion that often characterize our third dimension. For example, my guardian angel has a perfect memory and remembers everything I’ve ever said! If hearing such a thought disturbs you, imagine what it would be like to have a relationship with a being who has this capacity.

Withstanding the test of time

Life offers a smorgasbord of learning experiences. Some are pleasant, others wonderful, yet others disturbing, distressing and debilitating.

Without the help of angels—and more specifically—our guardian angel, we wouldn’t be able to make it through the most difficult moments of our lives.

Whatever happens on the physical level of our existence is supported by the non-physical. This means that no matter what life throws at us, we are supported in the most perfect way.

The whole idea is to learn how to reach out to your guardian angel and develop the intimate relationship that will enable you to build the faith it takes to get you through anything in this world.

God bless and may you see angels,
