ArchAngel MichaelThis web site is about Supernatural Beings.
It's about Angels!

Angels are ethereal beings whose primary duties are to assist and to serve God. They act as God's liaison, agent or messenger to life on our planet; in addition to being God's attendants and guardians to humankind. In many ancient scriptures and writings, it is predominantly Angels that carry out the will of God.

The Etymology of the English word Angel, originated from the Latin word angelus. That was derived from the Greek word angelos. Translated, the word means "messenger." The presence of Angels can be found in many ancient and current religions including Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Zoroastrianism to name but a few. In Hebrew, the word mal'akh has the same meaning.

What's particularly interesting when studying Angels, are certain similarities to other beings, Not-Of-This-Earth, as found in the myths and legends of other cultures. Were their gods and goddesses really what we have come to know and call Angels? Could it be that our ancient predecessors were more sensitive to the supernatural than we are? If Angels are close to humanity, do we come in touch with them on a regular basis, only not to see them?

Certainly the billions of people who adhere to a devout belief in today's structured religions, combined with the billions of previous inhabitants of our planet, can not be wrong. ANGELS REALLY DO EXIST!

How Can I Recognize An Angel?

The Three ArchAngels with TobiasMany ask "how can I recognize an Angel?" The most important first step to "tuning in" to an Angelic presence is as simple as it may be difficult. YOU MUST BELIEVE THAT ANGELS EXIST! If you cannot bring yourself to acknowledge their existence and reality, one can only hope they feel that your life-purpose is important enough for them to reveal themselves to you.

For those of us who do believe in Angels, there is no question that it would be much easier recognizing them if all Angels wore uniforms or, better yet, were required to announce their presence. Unfortunately, they do not. The truth is, "it is not important to the Angels that we recognize them for who they are." That is not germane to their mission when they are interacting with us.

In fact, when reviewing the many recounts of Angelic appearances, it seems that Angels materialize most frequently when and where they are needed. Then, they mysteriously disappear or become invisible. Generally, it is believed that Angels can only be in one place at a time.

I Think I Just Met An Angel!

ArchAngel ChamuelRARELY are there instances where a contactee is aware they are interacting with an Angel at the time the visit is taking place. Most often, they become aware of their visitor's identity once the event has concluded and they are reflecting upon it.

TIP: Here's a nifty little trick to help you determine if you have been blessed by a visit; Add the result of the contact to the phrase "Had it not been for ..." For example: "Had it not been for stopping to help a stranger with directions, I would have been standing precisely where the car jumped the curb!"

 

What Do Angels Look Like?

ArchAngel Gabriel Delivering the AnnuncinationIt's particularly interesting that the form most people associate Angels with is the traditional Angel with wings. Some say the wings are to identify them as a Spirit and to emphasize their role as a messenger. To the best of our knowledge, Angels reported on in the Bible never appeared this way. Nor did they ever appear as plump little children with mini-wings. They always appear as full-grown adults.

Why is that? Because the human mind needs a form it can relate to. As a result the "Supernatural" Spirit takes on the physical form of a human. The more familiar, comforting and pleasing they are to the individuals to whom they appear, the more acceptable they are.

Keep in mind that when they do appear, their purpose is to help us and guide us. Not to shock us into a cardiac arrest. Often, Angels will appear as humans who are so beautiful or handsome that our thoughts prevent us from recognizing them as an Angel. We are mesmerized!

Reports from various contactees would indicate that Angels can and have appeared as male, female, young, old, of various ethnicity, well dressed, poorly dressed, affluent, destitute, virile, crippled, handsome, beautiful, ugly, serious or care-free. In essence, they can appear in virtually any form they choose. However, no matter what form they choose to use, their goal is to provide help and guidance in a non-intrusive way. Our supposition is that it is their mission that ultimately determines the necessary appearance needed to accomplish it.

Do Angels Always Take Form?

Angel Resting in FormAngels are essentially “Spirits” and are not dependant on a physical body as we humans are. They can be visible or invisible, auditory only, unseen and unheard but "felt." They have the freedom to assume any form necessary in order to accomplish their mission. In other words, there is no standard form or method they use to interact with you.

When they are not in the physical form, there are different ways to tell if you are in the presence of an Angel. Often the smell of flowers or another pleasing natural scent will accompany their presence. Sometimes an Angel will announce its presence with a slight breeze even if all the windows are closed. The breeze is believed to be the "flutter" of their wings. Sometimes you may hear a faint or distant sound of bells, chimes, or trumpets.

How Do Angels Appear In The Angelic Realm?

Angel with TrumpetEven though they are Spirits, it is said that Angels are individual and have distinct features causing them to differ from each other. Artists who have been inspired, either personally or by another, tend to depict Angels as beautiful, androgynous humans with wings. Their hair is almost always long, and their figures often delicate.

At times, they are shown as powerful beings bearing drawn swords or other weapons in their hands. Other times, they may have a halo over their head and be wearing a red or blue robe. Other popular depictions of Angels are to show them blowing trumpets or making music in heaven.

While no one can confirm or say for sure how Angels might appear in their natural environment, it is just as easy to believe that they have left their mark on humanity by inspiring some of us to show them as best we can. In all their glory!
