The Purpose of AngelsJanuary 15, 2014
Angels are celestial beings who help us bridge the gap between our Earthly life and the Divine. These loving beings are messengers from the heavens who are with you throughout your life as a source of comfort, reassurance and guidance. While they watch over your life and can help you realize your purpose, they are not able to interfere with your free will. By learning more about the many types of angels, you will better understand how angels are at work in your life and how to stop fighting their assistance and embrace their goodwill.
References and descriptions of angels are found in the defining texts from every culture and historical era. Often, angels are described as human-looking beings with wings that are surrounded by halos of light. This light represents their connection to the Divine aspects of the Universe and their human characteristics serve as a source of familiarity and comfort. Many times, angels communicate with us via telepathy. However, some messages are so important that your angel will appear to you in their most spectacular and awe-inspiring form. These occasions will take your breath away and command your attention.
It can be quite easy to confuse angels with other spirits that provide us with guidance throughout our life. Even though angels and spirits share many similarities, angels are unique beings that act as guardians and messengers between Earth and the heavens. The other important thing to remember is that there are many different types of angels and each type possess specific characteristics that allow the angel to best fulfill its mission of providing guidance, love and compassion to those of us on Earth.
The Angels at Work in Your Life
Healing Angels — There are two different types of angels whose purpose is to heal your Earthly body. The archangels are messengers of hope and heal the human body by touching the afflicted part of the body with their scepter. The Powers are a class of angels who provide shelter with their wings and a healing energy that goes to every cell in your body so that your life force can freely flow to nourish and heal your body.
Guiding Angels — The Virtues are a class of angels who are responsible for charting our life’s path and with making changes when necessary. Their presence in your life begins before you are even born on Earth. If you are questioning the purpose in your life or the direction that your life should take, these are the angels who are best able to assist you. While The Virtues help create our life chart, The Dominions are a class of angels that are responsible for recording our actions for good or ill on our life chart. There are times when your guardian angel will work with angels of The Virtues and The Powers because these angels best understand your life’s path.
Guardian Angels — Your guardian angel is a loving force that stays with you from birth until your final transition to the other side. This benevolent and powerful being exists to provide protection, comfort and guidance during your journey. Through dedication and a sincere desire for spiritual growth, you have the ability to open up the lines of communication between yourself and your guardian angel.
