Angels - Do you believe they help you in times of emotional or physical crisis?
The Angel within us
Do you believe in Angels? Not necessarily the obvious Angelic beings that are portrayed in the Bible. There are many different interpretations of what they actually are, and whether they came down to Earth. But take away the religious context, and ask yourself the question, Angels, do you believe they help you in times of emotional or physical crisis? And what does that actually mean?
First of all let me explain what I mean by Angels. There are the obvious ones, with large white wings, and Heavenly aura, and other similar, but with slightly different interpretations. And then there are those that are a lot more subtle. Angels are sometimes another word for an unseen Being. Or maybe a ghost of a long lost relative. Even a stranger who suddenly appears, just as you are in danger, and maybe saves your life, then totally disappears back into the crowd. The latter are real people. But why were they there at that exact time? Did an unseen force point them in you direction? Maybe they were going to the movies and suddenly 'decided' to go by a different route, therefore being in the right place at the right time.
Your Inner Mind
For example, you are going to work, and being late, you run across the road. Suddenly there is a hand guiding you to safety. You look around but nobody is there. Is that an Angel? Or is it just your subconcious mind seeing the danger and halting your muscles so that you don't run under the car! What do you think? There are many books on the subject. The only trouble is, many of them lead you to believe that everything that happens, is like the story above. Automatically, your Angel keeping an eye on you.
The subconcious mind is a very powerful thing. A recent study showed that, your subconcious mind actually works four seconds before your concious mind can see danger. In other words, if you are indecisive about what you are about to buy in a shop, your subconcious has actually already given you the answer four seconds before you decide! So is that the answer? Well, yes and no.
Subconcious and Danger
So we now know that our 'secret' minds, are actually working ahead of time to keep us safe. We know this is true because we have all driven to work, walked across the beach, run up stairs or even crossed the road without actually being aware of what we are doing. Especially first thing in the morning. Many of us are surprised to find ourselves pulling into the office car park without actually being fully aware of how we got there. Our minds have been 'somewhere' else. Either thinking about what we are going to buy for dinner, or how to save up for our vacation. So, we work on Autopilot. Four seconds is a long time to help us notice danger. Try counting for four seconds, and see just how long it is.
So is that the answer? Are Angels just our subconcious mind saving us from an accident? Maybe.
But what happens if we are not in danger?
There have been many times when something happens that is not within what you would call the danger zone. Take this senario. A woman always pushes her baby in the pram, along a wide stretch of road to get to the park. One day she has a really horrible feeling, and decides to go the other, longer way. When she gets there, she can see, across the park, an ambulance. After talking to someone, she finds out that, at the moment she would have been walking that way, a car had mounted the sidewalk and hit a pedestrian. Did and Angel save her and the baby's life? If not, what was it?
Our Five Senses.
We all have five senses. Smell, touch, sight, hearing, and taste. We know how they each work. Some are more powerful than others. But what if we have 'Super' hearing, etc? By Super hearing, I mean that as in the example above, maybe the woman with the baby actually 'heard' the car in the distance, and subconciously realised that there was something wrong with it. Even though it was a mile away. Sounds bizarre? Maybe. What about smell? Did your subconcious smell the fire that was in the house three blocks away? Sounds fantastic I know, but maybe it is an area of science that we haven't covered yet.
Impossible to Explain
Now we have covered all the 'Super brain' theories, let's get to the crunch. Not all Angel sitings or feelings have a scientific explanation. I am a great believer in Telepathy. There are many tribes of people living in the world today who take this seriously. If you look at it in a scientific way, the brain produces electricity, and without going into how Atoms work, let's just say that it is possible that we can 'hear' our sister calling to us just before they phone. We have all mentioned someone, then a few moments later, they either ring us, or we bump into them in the supermarket. I am trying to clear away all the other explanations for Angelic appearances. So, I think that's it, unless you can think of another one!
Now we come to the main point. Angels.
When I was a baby, my mother always placed me in the cot beside her bed. The cot was never moved, and I had been sleeping in it for about 10 months. One day, my mother ran up the stairs, grabbed me, and literally shot out onto the landing. At that exact second, the roof just above my cot, fell in! Two seconds later, and I would have been marmalade! How on earth did she know? Her explanation to me later in life was, 'I just had this most horrible feeling'. Another time, when my mom was in the R.A.F. She decided, for some reason unknown to herself, that she wanted to change shifts with someone else. That meant taking the nearest weekend off compared to the next. Just as she was about to ask someone, a girl who she worked with, said 'Can we change weekends?' My mom was pleased and headed off to go on leave. When she returned on the Monday, the Conning Tower, where she worked had been completely blown away by a bomb. Suffice to say my mother was mortified and relieved.
And last but not least, another weekend leave arrived, and just as she was going off duty, the officer in charge told her off because she said 'Your skirt isn't correct, go and change it'. So, my mom went and got changed. When she eventually got out, she realised that she had missed her lift. Every week she hitched a lift with an American service man, who drove a lorry. Luckily she got another lift, and on the way back to her town, to her utter shock and grief, there was the lorry halfway up a tree where it had been hit once again by a bomb. I believe for some reason, an Angel was looking after her. At that time, all she could think about was her friend driving the lorry.
A Hole in the Road
A few years ago, while talking to a friend, she mentioned something that had happened to her. This is her story.
'Me and my sister were coming home from a night out, and knowing the road really well we were driving along at a steady speed. The road at that time of night was nearly empty, so we picked up our pace and were going really fast. We just wanted to get home to bed. Suddenly my sister screamed, 'look out', and I looked to where she was pointing. There, in the middle of the road, was a woman. She was waving her arms about, and thinking that there was something wrong, we pulled up to stop. Taking our eyes from the road for a few seconds to open the doors, we noticed to our surprise that when we looked back, the lady had gone! There was nowhere to go. The road was surrounded by a large open field and trees in the distance. When we went over to look at where she had been standing, to our horror, we found that there was a massive hole in the road! If she hadn't stopped us, we would have had at the least, a nasty accident. To this day, we never saw her again, she just disappeared!'.
So, Was a Guardian Angel keeping an eye on them? What do you think?
If you are interested in Guardian Angels, Theresa Cheung has written a series of books telling her story of how Angels influence her life. In this book An Angel spoke to me There are many real life stories of how Angels touched the lives of normal everyday people. I was really engrossed, it is a fascinating look at how we know little of the Angelic realms around us. Great Reading.
