The Love of Angels

Updated on July 21, 2014

All About Angels and their Love

Do you believe in angels? I think they are some of the most magnificent creatures ever created. Their beauty goes without saying.

Many people feel like they have been blessed by a visit from an angel at least once in their lifetime. Some even feel that an angel has saved their life.

When I first started to learn about angels, I was surprised that were different types and that different ones were to help with different things. I also had no idea that certain angels were associated with certain colors. How much do you know about angels? Maybe we can learn from each other.

Where do Angels Come From?

From what I've read on the subject matter, angels were originally created by God. They were made from pure love and are perfect in every way. Their purpose is to help.

There have been many reported cases of an angel suddenly showing up when a person needs help. They are often credited with preventing fatal car crashes, for example. Sometimes they show up in human form, while in other cases a person might catch a glimpse of one of them out of the corner of their eye.

Sometimes when people are dying, they report seeing angels. It is believed by some that angels will come from heaven to help people cross over at the time of death. In my opinion, anyone who is lucky enough to have an encounter with the angel is very lucky.

Are Angels Good or Evil?

The answer to this question could rely on your belief system. In some religions it is taught that there are fallen angels. The entity of Satan is known as one of them. Supposedly once God's favorite angel, Lucifer rebelled against God and was kicked out of heaven.

Not everyone believes this to be true. According to well-known psychic Sylvia Browne, there are no bad angels. In fact, there is no evil entity known as Satan, either, although there is the angel Lucifer who is still very much in God's good graces.

As for myself, I would like to believe that all angels are good. What do you think?

Names of Archangels - Angel Names

Angel
Angel

Do angels have names? Yes, they do. Many people are familiar with the names of certain angels. Michael is believed to be one of the most powerful angels of all. Another well-known angel is Gabrielle whose name means "messenger of God."

Both Michael and Gabrielle are archangels. The names of the other archangels are Ariel, Azrael, Chamuel, Haniel, Jereiel, Jophiel, Metetron, Raguel, Raziel, Sandalphon, Uriel and Zadkiel. So, what about the rest of the angels? Do they have names, too? There are those who believe that all angels have names.

Want to find out the name of your angels? Try meditating on it. Clear your mind and envision a tunnel of light and ask your angels to come through the tunnel and introduce themselves. At the same time, concentrate on getting the name of one of them. If you're lucky, you'll not only meet one of your angels, but learn its name as well.

Angel Ornaments

I love angel ornaments. They can be put just about any place. Here are a few cute ones.

Need an Angel?

Are you currently in need of an angel? All you have to do is ask. Angels are here for all of us in whatever capacity we need them in. I recently had to undergo minor surgery and was quite nervous about everything. I asked my angels for help and immediately felt a bright glow around me.

Sometimes angels appear and help us, without us even asking for help in an effort to save our lives. In Doreen Virtue's book, Angels 101, she cites several ways that these angelic creatures can help. Don't be afraid to ask for transportation help while traveling, along with hotel check assistance.

It's OK to ask an angel to help find a missing object such as a wedding ring, favorite earrings or car keys. Let your angels help you with your everyday relationships, whether it be with family or work members in your life.

Angels are true blessings who want to help us.

Great Family Angel Movie

If you're looking for a feel-good Angel movie, I recommend Disney's Angels in the Outfield. Starring Danny Glover, Christopher Lloyd and Tony Danza, this movie is about a foster child who prays for help and gets it from a group of angels. It's a wonderful movie for the whole family.

      I do believe in angels, but I don't think we are supposed to meditate on them. I believe that they are messengers from God, and move according to His will, but they are not to be worshipped. I do believe that they may intervene in our lives at specific times, in fact I wrote a novelette about this very subject.

      I think they are a nice symbol and a metaphor for the powers of good - but do not literally believe in them.

      Nice lens...yes I believe in Angels because the Bible says so and I believe the Bible to be the true word of God. By the way Sylvia Brown is just a near mortal, she can not tell people the opposite of what God has said, she can just give her opinion, it's dangerous to pick and choose what you want to believe in the God Word.

      I have a very open mind about all of this as I don't believe that this is it, I believe that there is a lot more after death although I am not sure what, do we come back as angels to help the misguided get back on track again or do we work for angels to many things happen that have no explanation, like people that have been in a serious car accident and have seen things and felt things that there is no explanation for. There is definitely more to all of this
