A guardian angel is an angel that is assigned to protect and guide a particular person, group, kingdom, or country. Belief in guardian angels can be traced throughout all antiquity.The role of the guardian angel is both to guide us to good thoughts, works and words, and to preserve us from evil.Angels are non-denominational, omnipresent beings. They can be in many places at the exact same time. Though angels dwell among us, they do so in a different dimension. Something which seems impossible and yet, quantum physics has been providing answers as to how this can be (though that is a subject for another time).
Guardian Angels and Archangels are beings of Light, who exist primarily at varying frequencies and vibrations of energies within the realm of Light. They are often genderless in being and form and as such, need not have a physical body to define their characteristics. However, just as your Spirit Guides and deceased Loved Ones want to make their appearance and support known to you, your Angelic guides do as well. The best way they can accomplish is by making prime use of their energy – the energy of Light.
It is possible to see the full form of your Angel in a dream, surrounded by light, or in your awake light, as a full physical being, glowing of light. However, it is much more common to see a flash, a stripe, or a ball of light.
He has charged His angels with the ministry of watching and safeguarding every one of His creatures that behold not His face. Kingdoms have their angels assigned to them, and men have their angels; these latter it is to whom religion designates the Holy Guardian Angels. Our Lord says in the Gospel, “Beware lest ye scandalize any of these little ones, for their angels in heaven see the face of My Father.” The existence of Guardian Angels, is, hence a dogma of the Christian faith: this being so, what ought not our respect be for that sure and holy intelligence that is ever present at our side; and how great our solicitude be, lest, by any act of ours, we offend those eyes which are ever bent upon us in all our ways!
Everyone has a guardian angel, with no exceptions. I’ve met people who doubted whether they deserved to have a guardian angel. Please know that you have a guardian angel with you, guaranteed! This is the angel who constantly stays with you, from birth until your transition back to heaven. This angel’s love for you is unconditional and bigger than anything on this earth. Your guardian angel makes certain you are safe and guided always.
Guardian angels are sometimes confused with “spirit guides.” A spirit guide is a loving being who has lived upon the earth in human form. This person then received special training in the afterlife about how to become a spirit guide.
This training emphasizes that the guide is not to interfere with your free will or make decisions for you. The guide is there to give you general advice, comfort, and at times warning and protection. Most spirit guides are deceased loved ones, such as grandparents, siblings, beloved friends, and parents.
Your spirit guide may have passed-away in the physical life before you were born. However, this loving being was there at your birth and has been with you every day of your life since. Just as you will always take an interest in your family’s future offspring, so do the deceased family members whom we may have never encountered in physical form.
Angels and many other beings of Light live in a realm of higher and faster vibrational energy than the denser energy of the physical world here on Earth. The lower the vibration, the denser the matter and energy, and the higher the vibration, the lighter and higher the energy. Angels, have a much higher and faster vibration than humans do. This, is why I often feel that many spirits appear to float, to be glowing, or to be higher off the ground, than those with physical body.
To begin seeing your Angels, simply look up, pay attention to the corners of your vision, and keep an awareness for unexpected and explained visions of Light around you.
Spirit guides act in the capacity of guardian angels, in that they bring many gifts to our lives. The main difference is that true guardian angels, who have never walked as mortals upon the earth, have a higher vibrating energy frequency. People who are emphatic, who can “feel” the sensation of a spiritual presence, can tell the palpable difference between an angelic and a spirit guide appearance.
Clairvoyants see that angels’ aura is bright white, whereas a spirit guide’s aura is not quite as bright and may appear as a bluish-white.
Essential elements about the Guardian Angel
Through the almighty Divine Will itself, to each human being is associated from the moment of birth, a so called Guardian Angel. As the name shows it, the Guardian Angel is a sublime, bright angelic entity, of whose main responsibility, connected to the human being that s/he is protecting, through a divine mandate, is to protect, guide and inspire in a secret, godly manner.
As the great divine model, Jesus Christ shows us, even the smallest and most helpless human beings each have a Guardian Angel who inspires, guides and protects them: “Do not ever despise any of these little ones, I tell you a truth to you: their angels are in the heavens and they see forever the face of My Father, who is in Heaven.” (Mathew 18:10)
According to the spiritual level of the being, his\her guardian angel can belong to any of the 9 hierarchies of light, starting from the hierarchy of the Angels (in the case of the ordinary beings) to the hierarchy of the Seraphs (this in the case of the human beings who came to Earth reincarnated and already having a level of consciousness and godliness that is extraordinarily elevated).
There is one guardian Angel belonging to one or the other hierarchies and angelic legions (in accordance with the spiritual dimensions of the divine protection that they have the mission to ensure) also for each human community (ethnicity, nation, human race) and for each heavenly body (planet, star, galaxy, etc.).
Usually, the guardian angels are spontaneously manifesting their support and divinely-protective influence when the human being truly needs them, because the mission they have from God, in respect with our being, is of acting like a sublime Providence (as a rule, apart from this responsibility, they are also in charge with numerous cosmic functions).
Their joy is immense when the human being they are guarding, is firmly orientating towards God and does great progresses on the path towards perfection. Also, as the respective human being is advancing more and more on the path of sanctity, more and more angels from the superior hierarchies are associating (sent by God) to the guardian angel of that being. In this way, the advanced spiritual yogis are assisted, protected, inspired and sustained not only by their guardian angel, but by many other angels; in the end, when the being reaches the state of spiritual liberation, God’s all angels of light can help that being in any spiritual action, that he/she does or aims to do.
This phenomenon of multiplication of the divine help, which the aspirant, full of passion towards the Divine Grace, receives it from God through His angels of light, is as possible as it can be, if we take into account that, to the extent of his spiritual elevation, the aspirant is submitted to tests and initiatic attempts that are more and more difficult.
Sometimes the human beings who are extremely fallen, unfortunately can orientate irrevocably and consciously, on purpose towards evil, against God’s Will. In this tragic situation, those abject beings will go through (most of the time without knowing) a terrible experience of losing the guardian angel.
Then, that unhappy being will enter under the incidence of a “personal” demon, appointed by Satan himself.
On the other side, through his guardian angel, the human being who is pure and full of the aspiration of ecstatically uniting himself with the Divine Supreme can easily enter into a sublime state of resonance with any of God’s angels of light.
Each guardian angel is unique in his way and is different from any other guardian angel, just as we are different from the other human beings. And since our guardian angel is intimately connected to the profundity of our soul, the better we know ourselves and we get to awaken our soul (to be aware of the sublime energies of our soul), the more we will spontaneously grow closer and more “familiar” to our guardian angel. Usually does necessary a profound self-know in order to discern the unique characteristics (resonances) and sublime inspirations of our guardian angel.
Even in the absence of this high spiritual level, we have at our disposal a very easy and efficient method, accessible to anyone, of opening our heart towards the guidance and divine protection of our guardian angel. All that is necessary for this is a great innocence and purity of the soul: it is about of the –apparently “ordinary”- prayer: “Angel, My Guardian Angel”.
Because our guardian angel was chosen and offered to us by God Himself, the relationship between us and our guardian angel is meant to be one of the most intimate connections in our lives. Our guardian angel always knows everything about us, and his/her love for us is complete, unconditional and unchanging, because it is deeply rooted in the Absolute Love of God. Thus, our guardian angel in reality is the dearest and closest friend and protector, until the moment we meet our Spiritual Master, who will take over this divine mission of spiritual guidance, though the connection with our guardian angel will continue afterwards, being involved. Thus, even after meeting the Spiritual Guide, our guardian angel will also fully contribute to our spiritual growth under the guidance of our Master, as the guardian angel was the one who led our steps in silence towards meeting the Master. A strong connection with our guardian angel will help us a lot to defeat the different inferior temptations and deviations from our spiritual path.
Indeed, the mission of our guardian angel, related to our being, is the one of accompanying, inspiring, rousing us spiritually- according to our level of inner superior receptivity- our entire life, just like a divine guide and protector.
“Because our physical life is a sort of path of returning home (to the residence of light of our heavenly Father, God), a path dotted with many dangers, inner as well as outer, God offers to each one of us, as long as we are on this path (The Spiritual Path), a protective angel (guardian). But when we have reached the end of the path, we no longer have a guardian angel, but we share with all the angels of light, the entire splendor of the godly Life.”
As we become more and more aware of the divinely inspiring presence of our guardian angel, a sublime pure and unconditional connection of love takes shape between us and him, and implicitly, according to how we participate to this divine love relationship, we gradually gain, through telepathic resonance, certain aspects, characteristics and spiritual gifts of our guardian angel, because our love towards him, putting us automatically, in a state of empathy with him.
The human being who becomes aware of the secret connection with his/her guardian angel and opens up more and more towards the angel’s guidance and divine inspiration, should not be afraid of anything. Through his guardian angel, the human being can obtain much easier the telepathic contact with any of the 9 angelic hierarchies, or with God.
On the other side, so great is God’s Love and Compassion for the Creation, that God not only offers a guardian angel to each soul, but he offers a guardian angel to each nation, planet, city, town, village etc. and the guardian angels of these places have a great importance for those specific areas. Thus, according to the human beings from those areas, who will start to open up more and more, in order to receive the protection, spiritual guidance and the sublime joy from the respective guardian angel, many of the bad things and sufferings they are facing will cease to exist, as well as the subtle-perverse and malefic influences of the infernal levels.
In conclusion, the connection of the human being with his guardian angel is the easiest to develop, is the most intimate, and if the respective being has not met yet his Spiritual Master, is even more the most efficient connection, from a spiritual point of view, because it transforms life very quickly (both spiritual as well as material life) of that being, through the immense power of the guardian angel. Becoming aware of the connection with the guardian angel can be the first step, made by the human being, towards God.
As part of the awareness about the presence of angels in general and of the guardian angel in particular, although the declared materialism, atheism, or even the Satanism are especially present in our age, nevertheless there are some extraordinary experiences which have allowed some ordinary people to become conscious of the sublime angelical entities. Most of these experiences are represented by the so called “clinical death” or coming back to life after the physical body apparently has shown all signs of death. In certain cases, the subjects were saying that the entities they met in the so called “tunnels” were in reality their guardian angels. For example one of these entities of light (ANGEL) said to a dying person: “I came to help you only in this situation, but you should know that from now on i will entrust you to another spirit.
Presently there are numerous statements of this sort, but maybe the most impressive testimonies of the providential help, which is offered by the guardian angel, who helps his/her guarded human being with avoiding some tragic or catastrophic situations.
In other situations, the human being gets to be projected into the future, thus becoming conscious of all the tragic successions of the accident, and then as through a divine miracle, that person succeeds to avoid the accident.
In other situations, the help of our guardian angel manifested long before a tragic or dangerous situation, through a dream which was upsetting us a lot or through multiple phenomena of synchronicity. For example most frequent case is the warning dream, dream that cannot be forgotten, and which determines us to do a certain thing or to act in a certain way in order to take an almost immediate decision. And although, generally we don’t exactly know why, we take that decision. After that we ask ourselves why did we take such a decision, but only after a few weeks or maybe after a year we discover that we did a very good thing. This kind of inspired dream cannot be forgotten and can never be mistaken with the ordinary dreams.
The same applies to the extraordinary phenomena of synchronicity or to the totally unexpected helpers whom we receive exactly when we need them, and in this direction, the casuistry is huge.
Of course, in all these situations, the inner purity of a human being, who receives the help which is unselfish and full of love of the guardian angel, is an important factor, because this makes the being capable to feel through telepathy, entering into resonance with the sphere of manifestation of the guardian angel, the agent of providence?
Thus, we can now understand why these divine invisible helpers are not manifesting for everyone in the same way, or other times, although they manifest as warnings, these are not taken into account by the dull and brutish human beings.
For example we meet cases, where after a terrible aircraft accident, only one person remained alive, and moreover, that person was sane and unharmed. Or, in a line of cars which collided against each other, we can meet one, out of the 50 injured cars, which is untouched. Or, in the same chain of accidents, a woman, immediately after the shock of the collision, is inspired to go out of her car immediately and to get away from it; 5 sec later, a truck crashes her car completely, etc., etc.
Of course, there is very much this kind of extraordinary cases, where the ones initiated in YOGA can identify the unmistakable hand of the Divine Grace, which often manifests through our guardian angel. On the other side, there are many researchers of a worldly prestige, who had the chance to contact the sublime entities of light who are the angels, out of them the most known are. There are, many distinctive aspects of meeting beyond the physical body (astral projection) with a spiritual entity:
1) These entities emit a love which immediately inspires an unconditional trust, as well as the safety of the subject who is astral projected.
2) Generally, at the beginning they present themselves with the face hidden in a sort of “shadow”, in order not to scare. And when the subject had familiarized himself with their presence, usually he does not perceive but a very bright light.
3) When these entities of light are talking, they limit themselves to the vocabulary known by the subject.
About the angels, he also said: “It is about entities who are undoubtedly superior to us.” Indeed, each angel who has reached the stage of guardian angel is situated much more above the spiritual level of the being that he/she will protect or inspire. The guardian angel is with us from the moment of incarnation and until the moment of death, and in certain situations even in the world beyond – between two successive incarnations).
Therefore, we can state, in finalizing this presentation about the essential aspects of the guardian angel, that is very important for any human being, who intensely aspires towards the spiritual perfection, to enter into as deep as possible connection with his/her guardian angel, this being able to help immensely in his /her effort of godliness. Not one prayer is refused, if it’s addressed to our guardian angel, with the condition that this request is to get us even much closer to God. Moreover, if we wish to communicate much better and more profoundly with someone (loved being), we can, for example, ask the help of our guardian angel to communicate and to fuse with the other person’s guardian angel.
Angel of God, my Guardian dear,
To whom God’s love commits me here,
Ever this day or night be at my side,
To light and guard,
to rule and guide. Amen.
