Guardian Angels

Post by Candlelight.kk on Sat 13 May 2017, 13:47

12 Jan 2008 07:33 pm

You have the sudden "urge" one morning to drive a different route to work and later find a terrible accident has occurred on your route at the time you normally would have been passing there.
On your way to the shops you realise you've forgotten your purse and have to return home for it only to find you've left your window open, an open invitation to burglars.
A "little voice" in your head is telling you not to go on that trip.
At the moment of sudden danger you somehow find the "strength from nowhere" to react in a positive way.

These things happen to all of us at some times in our lives. Many will put these incidents down to "coincidence".
I really don't believe there is such a thing as "coincidence".
I believe that each and every one of us has a guardian angel assigned to us from birth, to guide and protect us throughout our lives. Some will call this our spirit guide, or perhaps "just" intuition.
I believe the "urge", the "little voice", the "strength from nowhere" is that of our protecting guardian angel.
They are with us always especially in times of trouble, fear, danger.

Has anyone got any stories to tell where something strange and inexplicable has happened that they really can't put down to "coincidence".

I had a word with the angels last night went for a Job this morning only early morning cleaning in focus diy,I couldn't believe it there was three of us for the same job and the best one who done the cleaning got the job.We all had to do cleaning buffing and mopping if I didn't want the job I would have laughed,
Of course I got it  lol

I am made up to get me out of the house for a few hours and mum is still in bed when I come home so its suitable all round and it's a 20min walk there so hopefully the pounds will start coming off again.

I believe in the angels they always seem to help when it's needed,so going to bed now up at 5.30am it's so lovely to say that again getting up for work even tho is just for cleaning,it's a job and I'm working again.  very happy

Congratulations Liz and good for you on landing that job. Gives you more of a purpose to your days doesn't it. And I can imagine the determined steps all along the way of that 20 mins walk. I have a 10 minutes walk to get to work (and I must admit here I sometimes drive there, - my excuse is that when I have the car I can go home at lunchtime -hmm takes me longer sometimes though looking for a parking space) ...
Have to say though that on the days that I walk I really do feel so much more ready to meet the day and anything it throws at me. In fact, you've helped me to make the decision - from now on it's Shanks's Pony for me.

I can remember one, while going to visit my mum. She was going away on my last night with her. She postponed her trip till the day after I left. She should have travelled to the country with a friend. Her friend left as planned, had a major car accident, two of the other passengers were killed, and my mum's friend was in a coma for a while. To this day, mum says I saved her, as had I not been at home, she would have gone on that trip.

On two occasions with the train bombings in London, I happened to get on or off the underground at the stations, just in the nick of time. Looking back it is scary, that if I had sat and waited for another train, I would not be here to tell the tale. However at the time, nothing told me that I needed to get on the train, I just did.,

Sorry but one question has loomed up in the persistant and rational side of my brain. Why did the guardian angels of the ones who did get killed/hurt not warn them too? I suppose it was their time to go?

That makes more sense to me. I must learn to accept there are many mysteries I will never fathom. I have always shunned the idea of faith as being a poor second to knowledge but maybe we need faith first in order to be given the knowledge we are searching for.  Smile

I have a story!  thumb

I have read a few books in the last few weeks regarding Angels. I have always had a belief in them and a few experiences but last week I was feeling low and asked for proof that they exist and are with me. I asked for a sign, the sign being a feather. The next day I found a feather on the kitchen floor but I immediately dismissed it as a sign because I had washed the bedding, there are feathers in the pillows and it was obvious that it had been through the washer but for some reason I picked it up anyhow and put it on the work surface. the next day there was a lovely little white feather lying on the front lawn...again I dismissed it and told the "Angels" that it wasn't good enough...they would have to be more obvious than that for me to accept anything. So yesterday, again feeling low, I sat in the living room and asked outloud why these people whose books I had been reading could see these angels...why them and not me? If like they all say, Angels are with us then why is it so hard for them to give a sign when it is asked for. So I looked at my rug ( which is black) and said "If you exist...I will see a white feather on this rug". I sat and waited, I dont know what I was expecting...something like one floating down from the ceiling or to be slapped in the face by one but nothing happened. So then I go off on one and moan to nobody in particular about believing in something that might not exist.

So today I get the pram out of the kitchen and take it into the living room ready to take Stevie to the shop. I put him in it and go to get my bag, when I went back in, there on the rug was a white feather! I looked at it and at the back of my mind was the recollection of the first feather which I had left on the work surface so I assumed that it had been blown onto the pram and to prove it to myself I went to check...no sign of the feather but something told me to go upstairs and there it was in my bedroom, on my dressing table...as soon as I saw it there, I recalled having put it there the other day but I had forgotten till then. Now there are lots of logical reasons of how the feather could have appeared on the rug but there is also the point that it was in the exact place that I asked for it to be! Which made me wonder why I had hung onto the original feather and maybe that was the intention....if I hadn't have kept it, I would have dismissed it as being that one so this proved that it was a different feather altogether.

So I take Steven for his walk to the shop and I am thinking about all this and as I queue for the checkout and keep hearing the word 'Angel' in the song that is playing over the speakers. I have read many times that when the angels are with you, these synchronicities will happen. So the timing was important, I had to be in the shop at that moment.

To end this story...and keeping with synchronicities....when I got back I got out ingredients to make a Yorkshire pudding later and I placed two eggs on the work surface which at the time I thought was dodgy thing to do...anyway...I reached for the flour out of the cupboard and knocked one of the eggs...as I watched it roll off the surface and at that EXACT time, I heard on the tv programme " The eggs will go splat"!  eek   It was The Cat In The Hat on CITV...a programme which I have since looked up to prove to myself that I wasn't hearing things and the episode is called Nest Best Thing...weird or what? I dont know what splatting eggs have to do with Angels but it was definately a case of synchronicity!

So there you go....it's not mind blowing but even if you can dismiss it..I find it hard to as I really did get what I had asked for.  very happy

Feather..

I'm sorry that you never got an answer. I think that you have to make your request in complete silence with no distractions and mean it from the heart. However, I think that angels will provide feathers for people in situations where they haven't asked for it. To give comfort and support in dark times. I dont think that an angel plucked a feather from it's wing and dropped it on my carpet.  Mr. Green I think that the feather was already somewhere in the house but somehow events were manipulated so that it appeared exactly where I asked for it to be as this would be the only way for me to accept it. This is why I was meant to keep the original one, to prove to myself that it wasn't that one. The strongest experience I ever had was during a Reiki session in which you are in a complete state of relaxation. On that occasion I felt and saw an enormous pair of wings enfold me. They were not white fluffy ones ( as many people including me would have expected) but shades of brown and gold and I was crying, I felt a big release and felt loved and protected. I have not had an experience like that since although I am going to have another session to try and deal with the depression brought on by hormone inbalance so maybe it will happen again..maybe it wont. Only the first time, I was not expecting nor thinking of it..it really came from nowhere but it helped me. I know that my angel cannot protect me from everything in life, I have lessons to learn but it's comforting to know that even when I feel that I am alone in this big bad world, I'm not really alone.

When you asked for your sign, were you specific? What did you ask for? I say this because I got my result after being specific..ie...asking for it to appear on the black rug, I said it out loud. Maybe it was a coincidence but where I saw it was the spot on the rug which I was looking at when I asked for it...just in front of the chair where I was sitting and it's a big rug..taking up most of the living room floor! When the doubts start to creep in..I just ask myself...did I or did I not get exactly what I asked for? The answer is yes!

I've had many, many really dark times in my life when I've cried for hours at a time, unable to stop.My hubby was an alcoholic and, unless you've lived with one, you can have no conception what it's like. It's like a poison in a relationship. All the precious things about your spouse, which drew you to him in the first place, just fade away and leave you totally bereft. It's worse than a death. The shell is still alive but the person you loved has gone. The last thing I gave up was hope. I always thought he would change back into the man I loved again eventually but he never did or could.He broke my heart every time he went on a binge which often lasted for 3 weeks. I would be lucky to get 4-5 normal days and then it would start all over again. I lived with this for 20 years but never had an encounter with an angel in all that time.Forgive me if I'm cynical as a result.

Feather, I can understand and sympathise more than you know. I was in a similar position although while alcohol played a part in things, it wasn't always the cause but it made things worse. In other words, my husband didn't need alcohol to poison what we had in the way that he did. He broke my heart over and over until there was nothing left to break so I know and my heart goes out to you. the difference is that my faith in spirit strengthened as my faith in humanity weakened. I could never understand how someone who was supposed to love me could treat me that way..I still dont and it's why I dont trust anyone... a legacy of 20 years of pain and humiliation and it's something that I have to work at on a daily basis.

When someone comes to me having suffered in many different ways, as related above.
I ask the question. Who, in the future will be able to help someone else in the same situation, ie. counsel them, someone who has not had that experience or someone that has?
Never discard, as useless any experience. I have said many times, when people come to me. I say. They cannot say I do not know how they feel. One of the only good things about getting old er, is the experiences which should make us nicer people.
In spiritual circles, they do say that we choose this existence, then some say. Don't be silly, I would not choose to have these problems. lol
Cool

I do think someone up there has been looking after me.
Just two occasions.
In my early thirties I busted my lower spine playing football, they wanted to take bits out of my spine, I took my chances and spent a lifetime in sport. (I did break lots more bits) much later in life I broke the top of my spine and all of my ribs, in a skiing accident. Looking back I could have ended up like poor old superman. They must have had other plans for me.  excited

Someone who has.

I accept that I chose this existence but I'm not sure what lesson it is that I have to learn. Forgiveness? While I still feel anger, I can't help anyone although one day I would like to. Just writing the above post made me feel angry. To a certain extent, my heart is closed. This is why I am working on it on a spiritual basis. It is possible to feel real pain in your heart which doesn't come from disease. I will keep trying until the day comes when my heart is open again but for now the fear is that it will happen again.

The plans were that you help people to heal. That is your life purpose. You are a good man who cares about others. It must be very rewarding to know that you have helped people.  thumb

Hi Pixie, I know exactly how you feel  lol
A long time ago, I said to myself. I will never let anyone hurt me like that again. (That was an instruction to my unconscious mind) In doing so I did close my heart to many opportunities to find a new partner after my wife died in 92. so I end up a lonely/alone old maaan.  Rolling Eyes I was obviously meant to be on my own, it has allowed me to go where and when I felt the need. I think my wife left early to allow me to do that.

You obviously are not silly, you know the only person that suffers when you get hurt/angry, is you. I suggest that you look up EFT via my site, and let it all go. Do not waste your thoughts on something that is past, thank someone for the lesson. Sounds rediculous doesn't it?
I am sure you will use what you have learnt, if not already, in the future.

I have to say that now I feel no anger towards my husband--who passed in 2006. I feel only love and longing for the guy I fell for when we were both so young.I know he loved me with all of his heart but the illness took him away from me long before he died. If we are here to learn lessons, then he taught me a lot. Now I feel compassion for everyone who has succumb to the demon drink and for their loved ones who suffer so much.
Terry, you are a brave man who always finds something positive in the darkest of experiences. I salute you.

I understand everything that you are saying and I agree with it. While I dont dwell on things knowingly.....things people say or events trigger the memories and the anger comes to the surface. I know I will get better....it's a matter of time. It took years to get here so it wont be mended in five minutes. Terry you are a wonderful man...just reading your posts lifts me up Smile

That is exactly what I am talking about Feather.
It is just my thoughts, that no matter how bad we thought the experience was, thank that person. They may have been put on this earth with the soul! purpose to give you a hard time.It moves on to what some people think is their soulmate, life is so easy, they learn nothing.

You are right, I do see the good side of everything, (note I did not say, try) sometimes I have been dissappointed, learnt something new.   lol

When I broke my spine, I lost a inch and a half, (off my height Pixie) as I have said before. My physical problems have taken me to many healing centres where I end up instigating healing in the healers.
For me life always seems to happen for a purpose.
Keep  excited where's me banana, don't answer that.

I like positive thinking. very happy  I need it to survive my difficult life...for most of the time when I feel I'm going into one (low thoughts) I give myself 5 minutes to dwell on it and then cut it off. Fortunately, after a lot of practice, it's easy to do. The brain being the brain has other idea and it pops back in of course but I never give up ..not trying would mean sinking into depression maybe.

I refuse to let bad past experiences control and ruin my whole or a significant part of my life. I usually take action sooner than later and cut people out of my life if I need to.
I've been accused of 'being hard' by some people I know but I feel pain just the same as them. The only difference is I try hard and make wise decisions. This has come about after I've made a lot of mistakes, taken a lot of hurt and I put myself first more than I ever have done.

I still make mistakes, I still don't know how to make wise decisions all the time-who does?
But I deliberately put nice things/moments in my life to make me happy. I create them in order to give myself more happiness and 2011 I"m going to make a lot more nice things happens. You can't always stop the bad things in life happening but you can put things in place to make you smile more often.

No such thing as a mistake, just a new way of learning how not to do something.  lol

You mentioned interfereing thoughts.
In the sixties there was the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. He brought Transendental Meditation to the west. The idea was, he would give you a couple of words to keep repeating, when meditating, other thoughts will continue trying to get in, if you continue to repeat the words, eventually the thoughts stop trying to get in.
I later came the conclusion that really any two or more words, will do.
Most nights I say to myself, if I have trouble going to sleep, or wake in the night with something I must do the next day.
I say. "I don't want to go to sleep" silly as that may sound, the unconscious mind does not recognise negatives, ie. don't, so in fact I am saying. "I want to go to sleep" fooling the conscious mind. lol  sends me off very quickly, really it is just updated counting sheep.

Did your mother say? "Don't touch that, it's hot" and of course, you did.
So remember, do not use the word, don't.
hmm Cool

Excellent advice, merlin!

The idea was, he would give you a couple of words to keep repeating, when meditating, other thoughts will continue trying to get in, if you continue to repeat the words, eventually the thoughts stop trying to get in.

This record (an example perhaps of the word repetition that you mention - the record went on for ever and ever ... just repeating the same thing over and over) was recorded in the 1960s - by John Lennon - who of course along with his fellow Beatles members went to India and studied under and followed the teachings of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Indian religious leader, founder of Transcendental Meditation (TM). He took a degree in physics before going to the Himalayas to study the Advaita school of Vedanta religious thought with the yogi Guru Dev for 13 years. He arrived in the U.S. in 1959, preaching the virtues of TM; in the 1960s the Beatles were perhaps his most celebrated followers. The Maharishi (the title means "Great Sage")

He charged a weeks wages for the words he gave, didn't do too bad with the beatles.

The lady that put me on my path, Christine Davies was ask by him to run the business in this country, she declined. She did tell me stories of being around him. She did say that he rediated love and energy.
Some were surprised that he ate meat, he was surprised that people thought he should not, said it was just a transference of energy. He sat, while talking, pulling the petals off a flower, again some thought it was terrible to destroy the flower, again he said it was just changing the energy.

Found the Mythbuster thingy  Wink

Talking helps plants grow.
plausible

Seven small greenhouses were set up on the M5 Industries roof. Four were set up with stereos playing endlessly looping recordings (as having the Mythbusters actually talk to the plants could contaminate the samples with their expelled carbon dioxide): Two of negative speech, two of positive speech (Kari and Scottie each made one positive and one negative soundtrack), a fifth with classical music and a sixth with intense death metal music. A seventh greenhouse, used as a control sample, had no stereo. The greenhouses with the recordings of speech grew better than the control, regardless of whether such talk was kind or angry. The plants in the greenhouse with the recording of classical music grew better, while the plants in the greenhouse with the recording of intense death metal grew best of all.


Maybe I should treat my Basil to a bit of Slipknot!  Mr. Green

Rainbows and Kitkat both smoke and they have had spiritual experiences so it's obviously not a hard and fast rule. Against that, I smoke and I don't get them. Maybe the two of them would get more if they stopped smoking. There's a thought for them.

The Barefoot Angel

Author Unknown

Barefoot and dirty, the little girl just sat in the park and watched people go by. She never tried to speak, she never said a word. Many people passed, but not one person glanced her way, no one stopped, including me. The next day I decided to go back to the park, curious if the little girl would still be there.

Right in the very spot she was yesterday, she sat perched on high, with the saddest look in her eyes. But today I could not just walk away, concerned only with my affairs. I found myself walking over to the little girl. For as we all know, a park full of strange people is not a place for young children to play alone.

As I began walking towards her, I could see the back of the little girl’s dress indicated a deformity. I figured that was the reason the people just passed by and made no effort to care. As I got closer, the little girl slightly lowered her eyes to avoid my intent stare. I could see the shape of her back more clearly. It was grotesquely shaped in a humped over form.

I smiled to let her know it was okay, I was there to help, to talk. I sat down beside her and opened with a simple "hello." The little girl acted shocked and stammered a "hi" after along stare into my eyes. I smiled and she shyly smiled back.

We talked ’til darkness fell and the park was completely empty. Everyone was gone and we were alone. I asked the girl why she was so sad. The little girl looked at me and said, "Because I am different."

I immediately said "That you are!" and smiled.

The little girl acted even sadder, she said, "I know."

"Little girl," I said, "you remind me of an angel, sweet and innocent."

She looked at me and smiled slowly, she stood to her feet and said "Really?"

"Yes, dear, you're like a little guardian angel sent to watch over all those people walking by."

She nodded her head ‘yes’ and smiled, and with that she spread her wings and said, "I am. I’m your guardian angel," with a twinkle in her eye.

I was speechless, sure I was seeing things.

She said, "And when you began thinking of someone other than yourself, my job here was done."

Immediately I stood to my feet and said, "Wait, so why did no one else stop to help an angel?"

She looked at me and smiled, "You’re the only one who could see me," and she was gone. With that my life was changed dramatically.

When you think you’re all you have; remember, your angel is always watching over you.

Mine was....
