Guardian Angel Encounters With True Accounts of Angelic Protection
Guardian Angels are loved by most of humanity, and for good reason – these special kinds of angels are tasked to protect people. It’s not even a matter of belief, meaning whether you believe or not in the existence of Guardian Angels, they are still around to protect you.
They protect you from those that may harm you, intentionally or not, whether it’s other people, animals, or various accidental situations.
You may be wondering why a celestial being such as an angel would be interested in you and your affairs as a human. Don’t they have other things to do, aside from doing all they can to keep you from harm?
Angels – the Messengers of God
The English word “angel” comes from the Greek word angelos, which means “messenger.” They are messengers tasked to do what God, or the Universal and Supreme Force governing everything, has asked of them to do.
Angels are a part of most major faiths practiced all over the world. From ancient times, up to the present, angels have commanded respect, awe, admiration, and love from humans.
Not all angels are Guardian Angels. In fact, an angelic hierarchy classifies angels according to their levels of authority.
Guardian Angels belong to the rank that is closest to humanity. One of their specific tasks is to see to it that the humans, to whom they are assigned, remain under their protection.
The online Encyclopedia of the Unusual and Unexplained has this to say about Guardian Angels:
An old tradition says that guardian angels are appointed to children at the time of their birth. The seventeenth-century mystic Amos Komensky (1592–1670) declared that each child has an angel "given to him by God and ordained to be his guardian, that [the angel] might guard him, preserve him, and protect him against all dangers and snares, pits, ambushes, traps, and temptations."
Those men and women who claim to have seen their guardian angels generally describe them as appearing youthful, commanding, beautiful of countenance, and often majestic and awesome. Manifestations of light often accompany them, which lend to the grandeur of their appearance and the feelings of profound reverence that suffuse those who encounter angelic beings.
Not all angels appear as blond, blue-eyed entities in flowing white robes. Angels are thought to have the ability to appear in a variety of forms and with a wide range of physical characteristics. They seem completely capable of shaping reality in the three-dimensional world to suit their heavenly purposes. In certain cases, they may even reveal themselves as beings of pure light.
Intervention from Guardian Angels
There are numerous accounts of Guardian Angels intervening in situations people become involved in; usually, the reports tell of a Guardian Angel saving a human, or at the very least, guiding the person away from risks to his/her life, or helping a person on their way back home to the Spirit World
Here are excerpts from narratives given by people who have had the good fortune to experience a Guardian Angel encounter.
This first excerpt is from emailed accounts found at the site Angel Focus:
“I was walking home from the hospital in the middle of the night. My husband had almost died and I wasn't thinking of anything but him and finally being able to go home and sleep. I unconsciously took the quickest way home. This wasn't necessarily the safest route. The other streets were busier and safer and that was the way I always walked, even in the daylight. All of a sudden I felt a presence. It was a feeling like a mother gets when she "feels" exactly what her children are doing behind her. I felt a large being who expanded huge wings and wrapped them around me. It was a feeling of comfort I never felt before. Then I realized the path I was taking home and the fact that I was standing in the middle of a dark alley. I shudder to think what was down that alley that this being was protecting me from.”
In this account, the person didn’t exactly see her Guardian Angel, but felt her angel’s protective wings instead. That’s one of the ways they protect you – by making you sense their presence, and letting you feel what they are doing.
Another way Guardian Angels protect you is by ensuring you receive good advice. They usually speak to you telepathically, with their words coming through as thoughts in your mind. Sometimes, you can actually hear their voices.
However, even if the angels give the best piece of advice to you, if you assert your free will and choose not to follow the advice, then they cannot be blamed for what happens. This is what happened in the next excerpt:
“One morning as I woke up I heard a voice saying over and over don't get on the boat, don't get on the boat. So I told my husband about it. That day we were going boating with a friend who was bringing another friend that we had not met yet with their own boat as well.
My husband and I talked about what I had heard and we made a decision to go met with them on the beach, but not to get on any of the boats that day. However at the end of the day after not getting on any of the boats, my friend talked me and my husband into getting on the boat for just a ride only. We gave in and went.
While they were pulling a tuber in a double tube, the new ski rope, snapped. It snapped because the tuber had fell off the tube and the boat driver who had been drinking continued to drive the boat at over 30 mph even after we repeatedly yelled at him to stop. The tube submerged and held fast in the water, the ski rope had an estimated 4,000 pounds of pressure place on it and it snapped. At first everyone thought someone was shooting at us. It sounded like two gunshots.
The first of the two gun shot sounds were when the rope snapped and the second one, when it hit me in the head. It knocked me out and cause great bodily injury to me. I am disabled now due to what happened. I wish I had listened to my guardian angel.”
As busy as the Guardian Angels are with protecting you, there are also times when their abilities are not enough to handle a human situation. In such cases, angels of a higher rank may be called.
The Ex-FBI Officer and the 9/11 Guardian Angels
Not all encounters with Guardian Angels end in the preservation of a person’s life. Sometimes, Guardian Angels appear to help souls of the newly departed move forward on to the Spirit World.
A good example would be what a former FBI officer experienced, at the site where the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 happenedduring 9/11,as described in the online site The Blaze. The name of this ex-FBI officer is Lillie Leonardi, and this is what she had to say:
“I’m used to crime scenes but this one blew me out of the water. It just looked like the ground had swallowed up [the plane],” she recalls.
But aside from the unpleasant smells and sights, Leonardi saw something so startling that she decided to keep it to herself for fear that co-workers would think she had lost her scruples.
“That’s when I started seeing like shimmery lights…and it was kind of misty and that’s when I first saw, like, the angels there,” she explains. “And I didn’t say anything to the guys because you can imagine if I would have said, ‘I just saw angels on the crash site,’ they’d have called the office and they’d have said, ‘She lost her mind and tell her to go home.’”
According to Lillie Leonardi in her book, the angels were standing in columns at the crash site. Since it’s common knowledge there were no survivors from the United Airlines Flight 93 crash, it is clear the angels were not there to protect the physical bodies of the passengers, crewmembers, and even that of those who hijacked the plane.
Instead, the angels were there, presumably, to help gather the souls liberated from their physical bodies, and escort them back home to the Spirit World.
So, it’s important for you to know, understand, and believe in angels, especially Guardian Angels, for your peace of mind. However, if you need additional information, particularly on how to communicate with angels, and learn their names, you can schedule an Angel Reading by clicking here.
