Has an angel appeared before your eyes or made its presence known to you in some other way? Here is a collection of stories shared by readers about their angel sightings, angel experiences, dreams, and memories. Some of these amazing stories may make the skeptic question his thinking.

Archangel Michael - I was giving a new client a Reiki treatment. My hands were focused on her body, as were my eyes.

I felt a presence in the room. When I lifted up my head I saw an angel step through the wall into the room. He was so very tall that he had to stoop so as not to bump his head on the ceiling. My first thought was this must be the Archangel Michael because I had been told once that the archangels are tall. I don't know why I thought it was Michael, it was a knowing I had. I also wasn't sure that I should tell my client about the angel visitation, so I kept quiet. Before the session was over the woman asked if I ever sensed angels. I quietly answered yes as I continued to look over at the beautiful being of light that was sending enormous amounts of love and caring into the room. She then told me that she had always felt a strong connection to the Archangel Michael. So, I gave it up and told her he was in the room. Amazing experience! ~Paula

A Blanket from an Angel - My baby was in the hospital having a 4 hour surgery.

My estranged husband was not present and seemed not to care. At this time our marriage was crumbling and I fought to keep it alve although he openly cheated on me. But even worse I was afraid for the baby's life and when I arrived in the waiting room an older lady was sitting there working on a quilt with the Serenity Prayer on it.

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference." She asked me if the little baby boy is mine and when I confirmed she took my hand and said a prayer with me. I asked who is she is making the quilt for and she replied that God will show her who will need it. Hours later I was called into the wake up room and my baby son was fine. When I came outside the lady gave me the quilt and told me she now knows who she has been making it for. I have kept it in honor and my now 5 year old son is sleeping in his bed covered by it. ~AlexandraMaria

Angel Force - I was headed home to my children driving in the slow lane. The next thing I knew I was flying in the air in my Ford Windstar. I had no control. When my van landed it looked like a crane put it there. It was in the ditch perfectly. I had little room to get out. It felt like some force lifted me up out the ditch. I then saw this man who was so calm. He put a calmness in my heart. I never saw him again. I still can't explain how perfectly my van was in the ditch. ~momma

My Son and His Angel - In my home we are not religious by any means. One night I was putting my son to bed and he started telling me that the night before Jesus brought an angel to him because he was scared.

He said "she was so beautiful and her wings were so big they almost touched my walls." He said she sang to him and layed with him until he fell asleep. He then said Jesus came back to get her and he brought her back to a door with him where they started to sparkle and then went through the door. Ever since my son has been obsessed with Jesus and angels. He prays to an angel often and prays for Jesus to come back. The other day he was crying because he said he keeps praying but he doesn't think Jesus can hear him. He said that he keeps praying for him to come back because they make him feel so happy. I acknowledge what he says but I don't push it. I just let him talk about it when he needs to. Not sure what i should do, he gets genuinely sad when he thinks Jesus can't hear him. He is only 4yrs old.

My Healing Angel - When I was very young, maybe 8 or 9 I went to bed one night with a severe earache. I woke my mother up several times for comfort but nothing made it better. I laid in bed with tears in my eyes and then suddenly the pain stopped. I opened my eyes and saw something like a cloud hovering over me. I was amazed but more so relieved. I knew what it was. I soon after fell asleep in peace. ~M

Angels Are Among Us! - My 15 yr old grandson and I were putting up garage sale signs several blocks down the street. When I got back in the car to head back home I looked at Dawson, he was looking out straight ahead and asked if he got stay the night. No sooner than he asked the question while driving, in a flash of an eye, I saw Huge white Angel Wings encompass my windshield and at that very second Dawson shouted "Grandma did you see that"? I said yes I saw Huge Angel Wings covering my windshield...he said no Grandma I saw a ball of fire. We were both shocked as to have seen two different things? We are strong believers and have experienced many miracles but who is ready for something like this. No trees fell no storm, why Angel Wings in front of me covering my side of the windshield and fireball flash for him? Cannot understand this. But, Awesome! I could actually see the inner wing with all it's brilliance and feathers. Huge! Gone as fast as it came. ~dlapaust

Angel At Night - My family and I were going thru a terrible experience back in 2006 and to make long story short I had a chair next to my bed one night I was sleeping and I woke up looking towards my chair and there was a little girl dressed in all white with a hat on. She had beautiful glow but all of a sudden she walked away. I could not fall back asleep. I was terrified,but to this day I know she was an angel watching over me. ~Eduardo B

We Never Forgot  - I’ve never told this story. When I was about 7yrs old I was left at home alone with my nephew who was three at the time. We were playing in a back room when something scared us.

I don’t remember what I saw or heard but I knew I had to get out of that house or we were going to die. I clutched my nephew tightly, both of us screaming and crying, and ran toward the front door. Just before reaching the exit I saw a tiny ball of glowing white light hovering just above our front door. I stopped dead in my tracks. I could not take my eyes off that ball. Suddenly it started getting bigger and bigger. Eventually we were totally engulfed by the light. The next memory I have was floating inside this light. It was the purest most beautiful, soft light ever and I was transfixed by it. It felt so good. I can still feel it when I think about that day. Inside the light there was no sense of fear, pain, or worry. Somehow I knew everything was okay and we were going to be fine. ~Palmetto, FL

Orbs in Photographs - I have believed in Angels all my life. In my younger years I lived an exciting life, caution to the wind, and put myself in dangerous situations. I used to think I had worked my Angels overtime. My life changed when orbs showed up in the photos I took at my son's wrestling tournament. I don't see things like that, no matter what other people say they've seen. I was upset! My middle and my youngest son both told me not to worry, they believed they were Bryce's Guardian Angels. Since then, I have captured a wonderful variation of these beautiful orbs. One has moth like wings. Gorgeous pink on the top, and fairy green on the bottom. Again, since this one was so different I was a bit upset again. But when I'm out with them, I always feel so happy. They are playful, fun loving, and I feel they really want to be a blessing to me. They have helped me with unreasonable fears. I have peace and serenity like never before, and see God's hand on everything now. Love and light, they go together. ~Penny

Being Touched on Back While Asleep - Last year was the worse of my life. In six months I lost my brother-in-law, my younger brother passed away, I had my adult son and family removed from my house, and I divorced my absent husband. I have cried years of tears at unexpected times. When I went to bed I prayed longer and harder than ever. I ask the Lord, thru tears, to please give me a sign he was walking with me. About 3:00AM, I awoke to warm hands on my back and sit straight up. I was alone in the house and believe it was God giving me a sign he was with me. I was not afraid, just irritated someone laid hands on me. Then it hit me who it actually was and drifted off to a peaceful sleep. ~KC

Beautiful Bright Light - I've never experienced anything like this but it was amazing. Every night I will say a prayer "Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, guard me Jesus through the night and wake me with the morning light. " and it actually happened to me when I woke up out of no where and seen a beautiful bright light filling up my room. I thought maybe somebody turned on the light but I remembered the light in my room is very dim and then I thought about my window but I keep the blinds closed all the time. I soon went back to sleep with a great feeling and a sense of security. ~Brishauna

Morning Sun Angel - It started with me keep seeing a figure at the end of my bed. I also kept seeing purple, green, and white balls of light in my room at night. One night I had just lay down. suddenly i was outside staring at this woman who had long black hair. Her wings covered the whole of the sky. She was massive. I asked her what she wanted, shouting at her. She smiled and she told me she was the angel of the morning sun. she flapped her wings three times and my body went all funny. I was back in my room. I could see myself lying in bed, I was on my ceiling. i was fighting an fell back into my body.. i straight away researched the angel of the morning sun and I found sculptures of her and pictures. it was 1000% the same angel. I'm still freaked out to this day as I had never heard of her before and also didn't believe in this type of thing. Could anybody tell me why this happened to me? Would be great. —Guest

Bright Light - I sat in the garden with my 7 year old son, suddenly I could see in the corner of my eye a very bright light. I looked to the left and down and the bright light was on an ornamental angel in the flower bed. Then suddenly the light disappeared. I have looked on the Net and it says I was visited by my gaurdian angel. ~fugthiz

Reaching Out - I was four years old. I was in my brothers room crying. This is when I heard a sweet voice called me. I looked up towards the foot board and saw a woman with long hair lying on her right shoulder. She had on a white flowing cloth with light blue trimming surrounded by a white mist. Her arms were extended out with her palms facing upward as if she wanted to embrace me. She whisper towards me "come with me, I love you", in Spanish. I kept looking at her when I heard the bed room door starting to open. I screamed as I saw my mother walked into the room. She ran to the bed and lifts me up into her arms and ran out of the room. She sat down and started praying over me and kept pouring a sweet fragrance onto my head. I was not afraid of the lady but I do not know what happen between the time the door was opening and when I started screaming. We moved out several months later. However to this day I know I have someone watching over me and was protecting me for something else. ~Just Stay Here

God Answers Our Prayers In His Timing - I prayed that God would show me an angel and he did twice many years after I prayed for this. Both encounters happened when I was sleeping. I suppose angels will come to visit us on occasion when we would be most relaxed and receptive to their visitations. The first encounter I had was when I was in a dream state walking along a dark path at night. Then suddenly the entire environment setting lit up with incredibly pure bright light as if the sun itself was shining on me. Suddenly I woke up, but no one was in the dark bedroom that I could see. So I asked in bewilderment "What is it?" as if it was someone I was speaking to. No voice or words came forth, but the angel conveyed thoughts/pictures to my mind telepathically, showing me that I left the side door of the garage open with a picture in my mind and then reminding me to close the door and to lock it. So, I thanked the angel and got out of bed and sure enough the door was wide open. ~Jeff

Red Lights - Over this past few months when I have been at work I have encountered a very intense red light which has shone for about 4 seconds and then disappeared. When I have seen this light I have asked others present if they could see it but they all said no. I wondered if I was seeing things so I don't always say anything when it appears, but a couple of weeks ago it appeared and one of the people present with me saw it. In the building I work in it is impossible for this light to shine in. I saw it again last night but no one else did. ~A Yates

Death Angel - When I was twenty years old I was almost nine months pregnant. I was sitting in my bed wide awake. A vision of a ....well the best way I can explain....a bright light came into my room the vision as best I can say was like a man but his facial features were lion like and it seemed to have a bright light shining thru. I don't know how else to explain and I wish I could draw it but I'm not artistic . .42 years old now..this has haunted me to the day. That night my baby was killed by the umbilical cord. An angel took him I've no doubt at all. ~Sara Scully

Amazed - When I was younger I was going through a lot of things that a young 16 year old girl shouldn't have to endure; You can try to imagine. Well, my mother and I where arguing a lot and she stayed very angry because she was going through things of her on. She took it out on my little brother and me. I went to sleep that night after crying and praying to God; I prayed for hours until I drifted off to sleep. I woke up in the middle of the night to a bright light in my door way. It was so bright that I had to squint my eyes to look at this beautiful light, then a very tall what appeared to be a man walked out of the light to the edge of my bed walked to where I was laying kneeled down over me. He spoke my name and put his hand on my arm and started to whisper something in my ear. I could not understand what he was trying to tell me because as soon as he touched my arm I started feeling really tired and fell back to sleep. He made me feel so much comfort. I still think of my angel till this day. ~Erica

The Presence - Not long ago, my father was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer, and not given much hope for survival this past Christmas season. Although the odds were devastatingly against him, he chose to go through a round of chemo to take some comfort in the idea that he did give the whole attempt to be cured a credible shot. Although God has other plans, I take comfort in my faith that he will be taken care of by Christ and the angels themselves. I was up at the wee hours of morning after not being able to sleep in my unending thoughts and prayers. I stood in my driveway in the moonlight and meditated with chills indicating the presence of the Holy Spirit. As I prayed, my cat kept clawing and biting my ankles. I then telepathically said, "Jesus, can you please stop this annoying cat from biting my ankles while I am trying to talk to You?" At that very second, the cat refrained and sat up in a calmed state, although he still followed me as I strolled about the driveway. Coincidence? Ah-ah! ~johnowl01

Angel in the Navy - In 1974 while stationed in Pearl Harbor, someone I had been drinking with spiked my wine with LSD. He did so with several others. We all went back to the base barracks, and some of the guys were going crazy. I prayed for help. A sailor open his door and asked what was wrong. I told him. He asked me to get everyone and bring them to his room. I did. He asked if we believed in God. We all shared our experiences about God that is when I noticed I was sober. It was way too soon for LSD is an 18 hour experience. It had only been a few hours since our drinks had been spiked. The next day I went to the room to thank the guy. When I went to the room, no one had been in that room for months. I was in communications and there had been no ship movements. No one but the guys who had their drinks spiked remembers the man. It has been a mystery for nearly 40 years. There can be only one explanation, that sailor was either a ghost or an angel. Because of how he spoke of God I believe he was an angel. ~Gordon Marble

My Father Came to Me - My father passed away on the 1st of Feb 2012 and soon afterwards I had a dream that my father was waiting for me, but the closer I came to him the further he moved away> He was standing at the top of a flight of stairs which was very high and I could not get to him, as if he was watching over me, then a few nights ago he appeared to my mom's neighbor who was sleeping in mom's bed as an angel. He just stood there and then dissapeared after she told him my mom is being taken care of by me and she is fine. I miss him so much. ~sharon

Moonville Ohio Angels - Moonville, Ohio is an old town that was over taken by a plague, almost everyone died. All that is left of the town is a tunnel. We went through the tunnel and 3 of my grandsons climbed the hill to the top. There was a thin beam of light that looked like a sword. It was right in front of us. I couldn't see when I looked up to take the picture the light was so bright. I took the picture any way. When we got back to our cabin I looked at the picture, there was a bubble in the middle of the the thin beam of light, it was right in front of my grandson Jordan. Jordan lost his father at 9 months old he killed by a train. When I blew up the picture there were angels as plain as day looking right at Jordan. My 5 year old grand daughter Masyn said "I told you mommy, I saw an angel." I have the picture of the angels in the bubble, I want to share with the world. What a blessing we saw at Moonvill that day. ~DianeVentura

Angelic Words - My angel spoke to me once and told me his name. It happened when i came back from shopping. My mom told me to ask who my angel was. I was barely forming the question when he told me. One name: Gabriel. Afterwords i could feel him standing near me: a soft light with golden swirls. ~Shassari

Digital Angel - Well I had 2 one when I was 10 and I heard someone whisper my name but no one was there and my angel communicates with me by using digits on the clock. Last night I was on my iPod and I randomly felt someone lightly squeeze or touch my arm. I was confused at first and started looking around but no one was there so I looked at the time it was 2:23. I just missed 2:22 one of the #'s when they let me know they're there. I was amazed:) ~Courtney

Bus Stop Angel - I'd had had a difficult two years full of losses and sadness and major changes. I had been recently diagnosed with depression and I had had some very strange experiences and some moments of pure bliss. One day I was sitting at the Bus stop and something (that I couldn't see) sat next to me. Something so beautiful that I felt pleasure and tingling all along that side. A very spiritual friend said it was evil but I didn't feel it as evil. I think so it was an Angel that wants to guide me and has done just that, through a chance encounter with a friend of a friend who has set me on the right path for healing all my hurt and resolving my depression and more. And this friend of a friend is like an angel here on earth for me. ~rosalola

Angel Helps Me Save My Son's Life! - My son called me because he wanted to die,but after trying to convince him that I should fly there to help with the children he hung up! My 7yr old grandson called me crying and said please grandma come! I called the airlines and had to be at the airport for the last 9pm commuter plane. The terminal was under construction so I was left at a shuttle site in the parking lot in pouring rain it was 8:45pm. I had never used this airport so I was terrified and began crying. A black woman appear from the black night and said why are you crying I don't know where to board the plane! She asked for flight information, then said don't worry I'll get you there as a shuttle showed up! She got me to the terminal and I was the last to board! I stayed up up all night with my son, then I called the suicide line at 4:00 am. convincing him to talk with a psychiatrist. A friend came by went to talk with him and came out with a loaded gun and sleeping pills he talked into giving up! An angel saved him! ~ruth k

Guardian Angel Encounters - At 18 I was in a car wreck. Out of nowhere a lady in white clothes like a nurse appeared. She held a towel to my head stopping my severe bleeding as the firetrucks were coming she said "You will be fine now." I looked away and she was gone. I asked the fireman where was the lady he said "what lady?" I pointed to where she had came from and he said she could not have come from that area. It was a 500ft cliff to the Pacific ocean. She said I heard the accident and was at the beach and came to help you. All my friends saw her 30 years later. My girlfriend died the next day I am walking my dog crying wishing it was me instead of her a gold truck drives up. The blonde lady gets out and walks over to me and says "You are going to be okay, everything will be fine." She walks away and I turn around and realize it's her again, my guardian angel. ~mel s

Angel's Touch - My mom passed away June 2011. About a month after her death, I was at the fair crying alot. That night I felt a touch on my arm coming directly from above me. I realized it was mom and I felt so comforted. It was the same exact touch I wanted to give her to say goodbye in the coffin and couldn't. ~Donna

Beloved Angel - I had an experience where I felt something is touching my head in a strange but soft manner. And I knew I received a blessing because I was from church that day and from time to time I also see this little orb. And for some reason I just had a feeling it was my angel, and whenever I see it I smile and say Amen. ~Faith

Angelic Visitation - It was on 2011 May I was not feeling well everything seemed to be falling down. I would spent a lot of time on Facebook and internet. I felt I was challenged by evil spirits by then I was supposed to complete my authorisation as a distribution regional controller and was tasked by my employer eskom national Control South Africa. I was feeling like I was dead most of the time would see my spirit get out of my body and wonder the my mantor my dad will come in a spirit form to bring my soul back to my body. I thought it was one of the many dreams I had since I was young I always had dreams until now last year the stated date it was at night I was from my work place at midnight I was walking at night a risky place Germiston. I prayed that night. I saw a light from above and I collapsed then, my hands were lifted up by that light the save light picked me up and danced with me then I was happy ever since I am always! ~billysigudla

Angels at Christmas Mass - My non-catholic friend went to Christmas Mass with me and my family. He said that he saw Angels- Michael, Uriel, etc as well as St Lucy (the priest had lost an eye that year..) she is the saint- of eyesight, and her name means light. As well as St Anthony of Padua- who is devoted to Jesus the baby and also who was a great preacher, and the priest struggles with good homilies. Also Mary Magdalene was there too. I was uplifted, and felt that I was given a gift of having this shared with me. ~Suzanne

Angel Helped with Emotional Release - I know I needed healing. I wanted help to allow my emotion to flow out instead of wearing a protective mask, or being like a statue. I asked an angel connected with Mount Shasta for help with these blocked emotions. Within 5 minutes I was in tears of gratitude for a dear friend who brought me to this healing meditation. I cried every morning for the long week end and released many un-cried tears from old pain I knew I didn't have to remember....and I just allowed this healing release to begin a new journey for me. It felt odd not to be embarrassed, by my emotional state of releasing.... but felt so good to let go. I was so grateful and realized angels are always here for us if we but ask for their help. What a gift. I had never felt such love, such freedom, such connection after this retreat. ~Syena

Prediction in My Dream - I totally believe in my Angel. On 12th Nov. night I was praying to my Angel to connect with me in my dream as usual, that night I saw lots of dream which I don't remember but I woke up by a male voice and only thing I remember was he was saying Earthquake between 4-5. His words strike me a lot but I was confused that 4-5 he means was the time or the rectar scale and to my surprise on 14th my Husband called me around 2pm n asked me that if I'd felt the shake that morning around 5am? and that was 5 richter scale. ~Smreetee

Encounters of Divine Protection - Since I was a young kid I've never had ANY doubt that my guardian Angel(s?) protect me whenever I need protection. That's how I've lived & prayed through many encounters of Divine Protection & Safe keeping. Today I'm a semi-retired veterinarian belonging to our local Guardian Angels Group. Developed Type I diabetes in 1967 - now a happy 66 years old with A LOT of faith that Jesus with all His Love will ALWAYS carry me until He needs me at the next level. Bless you all - With God's grace & all overpowering love. ~Stan in Windhoek, Namibia

Who is My Angel? - I have several angels and see them each in different ways my father is rainbows, my grandma as butterflies there are orbs in pictures I know they are there when i photo them, they are red and often in shapes of angels. I have been told I have 5. One day I took my very sick dog Who to the vet and we were at a stop light and Who was on my lap getting hugs and love for his day was tough on my dog. Our light turned green and I began to accelerate and Who coughed and lost breath. I immediately stopped and looked down at him in fear I'd have to run him back inside to vet, in seconds a truck sped through the red light with lightening speed rocking my SUV and that would have been the end of us, my mouth was open and I gasped huh and Who looked at me (and Who is blind) and I said wow Who you saved my life with your little cough and he laid his face on my arm as if to thank me for saving his!! He is now one of my angels near my heart and at my feet right now! ~Angelina

We Both Knew Who He Was -  It happened at TalzaiDevi Jungle pune we knew we were lost.. both of us had almost decided that might be we will have to spend the rest of the night at the jungle... but suddenly from somewhere a man appeared... his looks were serene in spite of meeting him at that day of the hour in a jungle. Not even for once did we get scared of him. He looked so peaceful, such serenity on his face and his hands were till the knees.. just like sai baba... and as we followed him... myself and my friend stared at each other... we both knew that... either he is an angel of a man sent by an angel for our help... and one of the signals to know if you have had an angel encounter is. If the person along with you also enlightened about it... and certainly my friend was... we are so sure that never again in our lives we are going to meet or see that man. I'm sure he wasn't a common man because nobody comes for a walk in that area at 7.30 when its getting pitch dark and he knew the road which nobody else would know. ~Anjum

Angels in Backyard - Taking picture in my backyard 1-1/2 yrs ago, I look to see how the pics appeared at present & found that a great awesome cloud came down my alley & three UFO's shape like pyramids were in my back yard. Three men wearing silver suit & silver cone shape hats advanced from the UFO's toward me. The one closest to me (about 8 ft) had a great smile & reach out as if he was going to hug me. He look as common as any man except for his silver suit. I was overwhelm with excitement & surprise. Being new to photography, the photos were lost when downloading them to computer. The message error said something about my space on memory card was used up so that I could not transfer pics to it. This was extremely frustrating. Nevertheless, the experience shores up other encounters with the Kingdom of God in various visions. ~Edgar Ronnie Barton

My Daughter's Angels - I have a daughter who is permanently disabled and who had open heart surgery when when she was only 3 months old and we were told when she was being prepped for surgery that we shouldn't do it and that her prognosis wasn't good and that they would make her as comfortable as possible till she passed. Obviously we didn't do that and now she is simply amazing. Since this surgery we have been stopped 4 times in the last yr all by different people who have said they see angels all around her and I 100% believe it. God gave me my daughter for a reason and I am grateful for the angels who always take care of her. I just thought that after 4 different people I don't know have come up to me and my wife stating there are angels all around my daughter that they must be on to something. God is amazing. ~tjohnson

Clear Sign - Hi, yesterday I just asked into nowhere really: please just give me a sign on what to do ( I want to relocate from Ireland to Spain but was not sure if I should go for it or not ). The next day I was looking through one of my many handbags and I just put my hand in to grab some coins out of it. Suddenly, I found myself with a silver ring in my hand with a cent coin stuck in the middle of the ring. The story behind all this is the ring is very important to me. I got it from a boy on my very first holiday in Spain when I fell in love with the country and I thought I had lost the ring forever ( searched everywhere but just could not find it ) and the coin in the middle had the Irish Harp on it. So its Spain/Ireland. Although I am confused as it is Spain/Ireland really. But I still believe this is my own personal sign to change my live. ~Lora

I'll Never Leave You Nor Forsake You - At the age of 15 years old I was riding my four wheeler. I found myself being a boy when I tried to climb a hill with my four wheeler all by myself with no one there if i had wrecked. As I got to the top of the hill my front tire came upon a rock in the trail. My four wheeler began to flip back, and I had already felt the point of feeling helpless at gaining control as the front end was pointing toward the sky. At that point I knew I was in trouble, then at a instance I felt a hand of force catch me and drove me forward with so much force I thought that I was going to go over the front of the four wheeler as it hit the ground. From that day forward I vowed to never try to climb that hill again. I am now 28 years old and a preacher for Christ. Thank God for that unseen hand that watches over us each day. ~Tony

The Squirrel That Saved My Life - I know I have Angels by my side. I've been so close to death a few times. For instance, I was driving down the road approaching a major intersection. The light was red and I hadn't reached the stop light yet, before I got there it turned green. I said to myself cool I don't have to stop I can keep going. That's when a squirrel ran out in front of me and I slammed on my brakes, no one was in front or behind me, but I was ready to go thru the intersection at the same time as a speeding car running a red in the opposite direction. If that squirrel didn't run out in front of me I would have been killed. The guy who ran the light was going about 60. Maybe an angel threw a nut across the street for the squirrel or gave him a poke in the rear. Or maybe the squirrel was the angel. Oh, by the way I didn't hit the squirrel. He ran on his little hero way. ~Jenny

Angels and Demons - They both exist and according to the Bible there are twice as many angels as demons. They are all around us and we are to judge over them in the future. Be sure to worship and give thanks to God for sending his angels to protect you! ~Jan

Angels Are Real - I have been living a reckless life for quite some time. I have put myself in situations that most people would not have survived. As my life became more reckless and dangerous, my family told me "something has to be watching you or protecting you." I had started to lose my faith, until one night my mother came to my bedroom and told me "Please change... death is following you... I have never seen someone go through so much and live... please change." After not praying for years, I laid in bed and prayed "Lord, please send me a sign... anything... I need help because my luck is running out... for my sake and my families sake, help me... please." So, no sign came... that is until I started to doze off and awoke in a state that I cannot explain...I could not move, I opened my eyes and above my bed was a light...the brightest most beautiful light I ever seen. It was pulsating and glowing white... so bright it lit my room up... then it was gone... I know it was an angel sent from God. ~Heather

Signs I Can't Explain - I'm not sure if it's my grandmother, but I see a woman, she follows me as though she's watching me, protecting me. She's my light. every now and again I go through moments in my days. feeling like I've already done this. And now there's a sign. Pops in and out of my head at random times. I just cant leave it alone. i find myself drawing it so much because I need to see it on paper. ~Guest shield of light in the dark

Angel at the Mall - During a very rough time last week, my daughter and I went to the mall. At the bottom of the escalator a 'lady' approached us and started a conversation. She asked me a lot about where I was from, etc. She then told me that this rough time would pass, the girls at school were jealous of my daughter, and she just needs to hold her head up high and not respond... wow! How did she know there was a showdown at her school the day before!?!? She also said that my daughter will have her pick of colleges to choose from...(she is a straight A student since K now in 10th grade)...she also looked deep in my eyes and told me that she knew I had been to hell and back but this will all make me stronger! Before we left she said that she sees 6 angels around my daughter and six around me... we aren't alone... oh! she also reminded me to keep surrounding myself and my daughter with protection. that it works! (i surround myself and my daughter with the white light everyday...how did she know!? ~lindy61

My Mom's Angels - My Mom is 89 years old and lives alone. She says that angels are constantly visiting her and bothering her. Waking her up when she sleeps too much. They scare her and don't make her feel comfortable. She can't understand what they want. ~Karen

What I Believe Must be an Angel - I was the manager of a radio broadcast station. I worked the morning show in which I had to wake every morning at 3AM in order to get all my prep. together by 5AM which was airtime. The night before, I abruptly woke up at 11:00 pm and was sound asleep by 9:30 yet had to call the radio station urgently. I was initially disoriented yet driven and barking orders to my equally sound asleep husband who responded beautifully to my orders. I asked my husband to get on the cell phone and get ready to call 911. When I called the station the talent on air informed me that there was a stranger in the studio with a gun. I signaled my husband to call 911 while I asked to speak to the stranger who was highly agitated. I was able to talk to the man who threatened my friend my staff member and engaged him until the Sheriff's office arrived and my staff member was saved. There is no other explanation other than an Angel informed me of danger and guided me though on how to handle it. ~pjbcww

My Angel - I have an angel that was sent by God to be my eternal companion. Before this encounter I was having some very vivid nightmares. The nightmares were so violent and disturbing that I had insomnia but falling asleep during daylight only made the problem worse. Finally I prayed for God to help me. Within a week I was taken into heaven and introduced to a special angel. It took a while for me to trust him but for 1.5 years now he has been by my side. First he appeared in many vivid dreams to drive out any threats that appeared there. Then he made himself known at other places in my life. Often when I lay down at night I feel his arms wrap around me and I fall asleep knowing I am protected. At times when I begin to feel filled with doubt he gently reminds me to seek God. This angel's love and devotion for God has really inspired my own relationship with our Creator. I have kept a journal of all of the significant encounters over the last 1.5 years. I thank God for this wonderful friend. ~Ann Kaycee

Angelic Being at Bedside - I have a dear friend battling cancer who is in the hospital with liver failure from chemo. She told me yesterday that she opened her eyes to see an light angelic being hovering over her with arms spread wide and that the Angel circled her bed holding her hands close to my friends body sending healing energy to her. I asked "Did the Angel have wings?" and she told me that it did indeed have wings. ~S_Khalsa

Sitting in Silence - The other night I came to stay for the Christmas holidays with my dad and brother. My brother sometimes is a person I still don't get along with even though we are adults. He keeps to himself and seems to ignore me most of the time. I feel very sad about this every time I visit my family. He is not nice to my mom at all who lives separate from him and my Dad. On the first night I was here I held back tears as we ate supper. I played cards with my Dad. I could have talked to my dad about it but I didn't know how to put it into words. That night I cried when I went to bed and in the middle of the night I woke up to see a woman in a black and orange dress sitting beside my bed. She never said anything, just sat in silence but after awhile I fell back to sleep. In the morning I felt refreshed, like I'd been talking with a good friend. ~Yhohannah

Angel Encounter - It was an extremely sad day for me and my husband. We had just left from our veterinarian’s office after taking our female Persian (she was 13 years old) in to have her put to sleep. She had been suffering from liver disease and I could see in her eyes that she was telling me it was time for her to leave us. We were on our way home, and waiting at a stop light. Just as it turned green and we were about to enter the intersection, something made my husband and the people in their vehicle across from us hesitate. A lady, who was apparently talking on her cell phone and not paying any attention, sped through the light. I know with all my heart that my little girl had somehow let us know and saved not only our lives but those of the people across from us. We miss our little sweetie every day, but know that one day we'll see her again. ~CWhitefish

Angel Story - I was out shopping today with my husband and mum. I had not been feeling all that good, but had read an angel book, I then thought about it and said if there were such things then for me to have a sign. Today a young man appeared from nowhere and said I had a lovely smile and was pretty when I used it. Was he an angel? He was a small man, but was handsome, he bought very little at the shop and went out afterwards. ~kaz

My Angel Sighting - I was 10 years old and visiting my nana. I went down the hall and I had to pass her room to get to the room I was staying in and ther was a crack in the door. I stopped and looked in and there was a woman standing right in the middle of the room wearing a white or really light yellow dress. She had long brown hair. She had a light glow all around her. I felt at peace. I haven't seen her since but I feel that she is my guardian angel. ~daisy757

MY GUARDIAN ANGEL - My daughter was age 3 when I was taking her to daycare. I had left the house and traveled 2 blocks when I came to a major intersection that was being widened. I was the first car at the light, my daughter was in her child seat in the front. The light turned green, as I readied to go through the intersection, loud and clear I heard the words "Don't Go." It was so clear that I thought someone was in my backseat, I checked the rearview mirror, there was no one, at that point I thought, "oh, I am holding up traffic" and started to proceed through the intersection when a dump truck full of hot asphalt ran the red light. I was told that if I hadn't delayed the impact from the dump truck it would have killed us and if not the hot asphalt would have burned us to death. I always thought it was my daughter's angel. Years later I spoke with a psychic, she said she was mine and that I had 3, one strong woman and two men. The psychic said, you know "the men that help you do things around here" I thank them a lot. ~LINDALOULALA

Invisible Hands - Years ago, I was out with my two good friends and we were walking around in this big shopping centre. Over an hour we hanged around in the perfume section looking for the right smell, so in the end we were quite dazed. Coming out of the main entrance right ahead was a huge crossroad and all the lights for people were green, but just before the big crossroad, there was a little crossing with no lights. I was so dazed that I wanted to walk on the other side, because all I saw was green lights, but at that moment just behind a corner was coming a bus, driving very fast. It was a split second where I was taking my step and the next moment I heard bus sirens and all I felt was strong hands around my shoulders pulling me back to the pavement, also I saw the bus going just inches from my nose passing very fast. My friends were behind me, but none of them could remember grabbing me. They were stunned, but had to admit that they stood watching when angel saved me, Thank you, my guardian angel! ~Linda

Angels from the Air - I remembered when I was very little. I don't remember what age but my mother and I were on the airplane when I looked out I saw the clouds shaped as Jesus with angels. The angels look like they were like babies, like cupid with a diaper like thing with no shorts. They looked so young and in the middle I saw jesus with long hair like i usualy see in pictures. I think I only saw his hands, arms and head, neck I don't remember that clearly. I pointed to my mom and she said it does look like it but didn't really look that much. I asked her occasionaly that if she remembers that day. Sometimes she said yes, sometimes she says no ,sometimes i think i was just dreaming, but some how I know it's real. ~Daryl

Eight Angels  - I was in a bad place in my life. I was having terrible problems with my 22 year old son. I was literally at the end of my rope. One night on my way home I was alone in the car and I starting praying out loud. Dear God - please send someone to help me - let me see angels as a sign - a sign that things will get better. I'm so lost and in such despair. Please send me an angel to help me. Nothing happen. I was about 5 minutes from my home when I received a text message from my best friend. The message read "Eight angels have been sent to help you." That was it - the whole message. Confused, I called my best friend - asking if she had sent it to me. She said she received it about 15 minutes prior (around the time I was praying) from her son - who when questioned said he never sent it. She saw it - and thought to send it to me!! After that message things took an upswing for my son. He is alive and thriving. I know in my heart - these angels are with him and me too!!! ~Millie 

My Angel - I was 5 years old when I encounter a altar church boy about 10 or 11, I entered my bedroom in broad daylight and he emerged from the wall and levitated across the room then disappear, the loose door of a heavy armoire fell to the floor and missed me because when I saw him I just stayed at the door speechless, My mom heard the noise and came running, I was accused of touching the door when I was told not to because of the loose hinges, they did not believe me and I never repeated this story to anyone. ~avantgarde33009

Angels Leave Feathers for Me - Angels in my life... simply divine. Ever since I invited my Angels into my daily life, it has changed for the better. I know with the Angels guidance I can make the best decisions for my future. Often the signs I receive are feathers... they come in all shapes sizes... and the craziest places. ~Karen Borga

Always Felt Angels - Since I was little I've put myself in more than dangerous situations, I had always know they or he was there. When he is around my palms get very hot. I've always loved people regardless of their agenda who or what they are about always felt that oneness, He told me to walk on the other side of the pavement to experience what others reasons were for the negatives in their lives. I love to hug and tell people that I love them, I know this has come from my angels and they have saved my life more times then I can count. Now I'm starting to heal others with love and the heat in my hands. God bless them xoxox and whoever reads this may an abundance of love touch your life always. ~shine03

Sign of Hope - Feeling very lost, as I was about to fall asleep I entered into another dimensional place. I was looking down at myself without any emotion. When I looked to my left it slowly started, a light, as it was coming closer, became brighter, then-the face of an angel, huge, looking right at me and me at him, right into each others eyes. Then I was back, fully conscience of the experience. I still have deep moments of sadness about my life, and yet I still can't explain what it was like to look an angel in his eyes and him at mine. Maybe it's a sign of hope. ~bostoniangal

Healing Angels - My brother and sister-in-law are going through a difficult divorce. She is trying to jail him through deceptive and untrue acts. My bro awaits trial tomorrow. Being an avid Angel believer, I opened my Angel Inspiration to a random page for guidance. It told me to send angels to 3 people. 1 I know well, 1 I do not know, 1 who is misusing their position of power. Hence, my brother, the judge, my sister-in-law. I went into meditation to initiate this task. It lifted my spirits and I will send loving thoughts to all. Asking all for their prayers for a positive outcome for all. Love and light! ~angelized

My Son Saw a Angel - My kids an I were sick one morning and I was so scared. I got on my knees and prayed and I kept calling the name of JESUS. All of a sudden my 3 year old son said (mama why you keep calling him, there he goes right there), pointing up to the window. We all felt so much better. He said it was a lady standing there with one hand in the other. It was a great feeling to know someone was watching over us. ~travismn

Angel Story Worked - I am sitting in my office suffering from terrible cold, my boss is nasty and somehow I chance upon this article, and in the story "I must have a male Angel or Guide" the angel asked the man to breathe and I felt someone telling me to do it too and I did the same, and it worked . My cold disappeared. I am not sneezing anymore and I can complete my work now. Angles exist truly. Hopefully someday I will be able to see my angel. Thank you angel!! ~gina.josep

Embrace by Love - One Wednesday night back in the late 1990's, I decided to sing for God under the evening stars. We live in a semi-rural area, so thankfully I wouldn't be waking anyone up. I suggested to God that He may want to have some angels doctor up my lame singing voice-- as I'm sure He is used to hearing beautiful angel choirs in the Heavenly Realms! I sang all of the old hymns to God under the night sky-- anything that came to my heart that made me feel closer to Him. While I was singing, I felt a feeling of being surrounded or embraced by Love. After I finished, I instinctively looked up to the rooftop of our home and saw a tall glowing figure-- completely surrounded in a warm yellow/white light standing there on our roof. I smiled at this Being-- still feeling that sense of Love surroundng me. Then this Light person flew off of the roof and up toward the stars as I stood watching in shock. I ran inside to excitedly tell my mother- we were both encouraged! ~Boldylocks

An Answer - As I was meditating I was looking for a sign as I came out of the meditation I found a beautiful feather next to me, then this site was on my computer! As I open it they were explaining about guides and angels. So I believe that was my sign to what I was looking for. My guide's sign that she is with me. ~Mary

Angel Experience - My ex-husband was a Reiki practitioner and one night he was giving me a treatment for repetitive strain in my shoulders. I was afraid to open my eyes during the treatment because I didn't want to lose my mind's eye view of all the wonderful visitors in our living room, but at the same time didn't want to discover they were really there! I could see five "people" around the recliner - a Mandarin, a twin boy and girl, a French monk (don't know why I thought he was French) and a girl dressed in a 1940s trenchcoat. That was weird enough, but when I looked beyond them in my mind's eye I could see the most beautiful male angel standing at the far end of the room. He had huge white wings which reached right up to the ceiling. I'm sure everyone thinks I'm losing it, but I know what I was experiencing and it was the best encounter ever - the French guy was a bit imposing mind!!! ~scotswummin44

Easter Angel - I believe that I saw an Angel when I was about 6 or 7 years old. It happeneded on the night before Easter. I had fallen asleep in my parents bedroom and I woke up and my mom was sitting on the bed and she told me to go upstairs and to tell my Dad to come downstairs, and so I went upstairs to get my Dad, and as we were both walking towards my parents bedroom I saw an Angel standing by the bed, She was looking directly at me, She was barefoot, and she didn't have a smile on her face or anything, I can't even remember what her mouth looked like but she had blue eyes and long black curly hair and she was wearing a long sleeved yellow dress with flowers on it, her dress almost looked like a night gown, she was glowing and she had almost like a white beam of light around her. As I got closer to her she started to vanish, and once she was completley gone I told my parents that I had just seen an Angel. That's the only time I've ever seen her. But I believe that she is my gaurdian angel. ~Taylor

I Must Have a Male Angel or Guide - I had taken myself away to spend a few days on my own as a treat. I had booked a lovely room overlooking the bay. After a hot bath, and 1/2 hour yoga I sat meditating. This male voice came out of nowhere and shouted "BREATHE" I was startled, and opened my eyes and as I did his voice repeated "Breathe, you need to breathe" His voice was deep, demanding and had an urgent undertone to it. I started to cry and I felt like a child when I started answering that I would. It has puzzled me to this day, but it was then that I started Breath meditation. ~Pennie

Saw a Man Smiling and Watching Us - I am 54. I have a close relationship with our heavenly father. My wife was in the hospital having cancer removed from her body. My daughter and I saw her off as she was being prepared for surgery. I was so scared and in tears trying not to show any sadness. My daughter and I stepped outside and went down the escalator. We were going to go outside to pray again. We have had so many people praying for my wife. As I was going down the escalator I felt somthing warm comforting. I happen to look back up the escalator and there stood a man looking at me with this wonderful smile. I looked at my daughter who had already turned the corner she looked at me puzzled. I turned my head again to look at this man. He was still there with this wonderful peaceful smile as if he was proud of us. He was wearing a handsome suit I guess I turned my head and he was gone. I quickley ran up the other side which was next to me. He was gone. There was no where he could have went. ~Dave

Angel in My Dream - I believe in angels because I have lots of experiences wherein I know they talk to me. Angels don't only watch and guide they also make us a better person. I was in a bad situation two years ago and I am angry with myself but I never noticed it. On my dream there was two men standing on a platform. They called me. I noticed the three gray stones in their forehead (I don't know why they had that). One guy asked me, why are you angry with yourself, what is bothering you, why are you punishing yourself, he said you have everything you have nice family, house, people love you, then why don't you still love yourself. His tone is in annoyed tone, I cannot answer because I know he is correct. I just said I am terribly sorry and I cried. When I woke up, I remembered I was still crying. I felt scared by my experience that time. But it make me realise that those two guys are correct.I am a happier person now, there are ups and downs in my life but we have to learn to count our blessing. ~Mojaru

My Spirit Guide is an Angel - Recently I have been experiencing ghostly things in my house and the height of this I was attacked in the shower, I called out a spiritualist to help me. She brought with her two other mediums and they took pictures of my house and talked to me. One of the mediums was also a healer and he decided that a healing session was needed to help me as it seemed the things that were happening in the house were down to me having the psychic gift. When he was performing this I was told to bring forward my spirit guide. It soon was obvius that my spirit guide was an angel and not just any angel but the angel Gabriel. I was told this was very important and that my psychic gift was extraordinarily strong. ~sofie

My Angel Put Me to Sleep - As a kid, my parents fought like crazy. One night it got so bad, I locked myself in the room and cried for this to stop. As I clenched on to my sheets, I felt a hand stroke my hair and I immediately fell asleep and did not wake up till the next day. Remembering this, the next day, I smiled and felt as though nothing happened the night before. I love my Angel and that's not the only time I've been helped. I feel like they are with me even when I don't deserve them to be. ~Sheren

Angel Encounter Programs - I first heard an angel come to my room when I was sober 2 years and the angel woke me to tell me my job was to help others. Then I found out there is a way to communicate. One way is to ask your angels for directions on how to help yourself and others. We are all angels sent by God to help others, we forget after the age of two. A group of us on Friday nights talk on the phone and pray for others with their angels to help heal others. It is all free. I clean myself before I help others, like the sign of the cross, only a little differently. I encounter my angels every moment and miracles still happen for those we pray for. God is so good he gives us people to help others and gives our life the true purpose of being here, go for the light. I have 4 angels since birth. They have saved my life so many times. I love my angels. ~Anna Wooten

Angels, The Underemployed - I was raised Catholic, my mom incorporated Angels into our everyday life. Sometimes to reassure us: like thunder is just the angels bowling, lightning is the angels taking pictures (that one led to a bit of danger as we all wanted to run outside & smile at the heavens during a lightning storm). As an adult I left the Catholic church and the Saints and Angels to explore other spiritual paths. So I was quite surprised when in my mid-40's Raphael & Uriel came to me. I'd worked as an intuitive healer for years. When they angels came I was so surprised I said, "I don't work with angels." Uriel responded, "nevertheless, we are here." After a few days I became use to their presence. Over the next few weeks they guided me in many ways, including teaching me new healing techniques. They asked me to be a channel for them, which I continue to be. Raphael has been in the passenger seat telling me to slow down or speed up a bit during snow storms in mountain passes. I live with them, joyfully! ~ColeenRenee

Little Kid Angel - When I was little I was walking with my grandma holding her hand on this trail to the store. Then there was this kid that walked right by me with blond hair and blue eyes. He said, hi Jimmy. Then kept walking. I just looked back at him and he never turned back. My grandma did not seem to notice him either. ~Jimmy

Angel Alerted Us to Fire - My husband, six children and my daughter-in-law lived in the same house. But one day my husband and my younger 3 sons went and stayed at our new place. My oldest daughter was out that night, my oldest son went to work the night shift. So my daughter-in-law, my granddaughter and I stayed up watching movies. I asked her if she would sleep in my room just for that night. She did and in the middle of the night she woke me up whispering my name cause she said she felt someone open the door very slowly and shut it again very slowly. She was very scared thinking someone broke in. I went real fast to see who it was, but when I went to go look there was smoke all over the house. A fire was starting on my stove. We must have forgot we left a pan on the stove. We ran outside. We believe whoever opened the door was an angel who saved our lives. It wasn't our time to go yet. I do believe in Angels. My daughter-in-law felt a presence that woke her up, which was the door being opened. ~mari hernandez

Purple Orbs - Occasionally I see a number of purple orbs at the corner of my eye or in the corner of the room. I believe these are my guardian angels. Also, whenever my son is ill in bed at night I see a purple orb and that is my son's guardian angel looking after him and letting me know he is going to be ok. It's very comforting. ~mandy

Angels Exist! - In the dead of the night an angel whispered loud and urgent to me, "I smell smoke." It woke me up and saved my life, my husband's life and my dog. We lost the house and everything we owned! ~Believer

An Angel in Disguise - When I was leaving the grocery store, there was a sweet old lady and she seemed like she had appeared next to me. I was laughing and when I glanced over at her she had a warm smile on her face. I couldn't help but smile, too. When we were standing outside of the store, she had mumbled, "Now where did I park that car?" Then my mother said, "That makes two of us." My mother then found her car, and she had mentioned it, too. Then the lady said, "I think I parked my car over there, too. I'll just follow you." So, as my mother and I were walking towards the car, I had turned around to see if the angel was still following us. She had disappeared. I knew this because I had looked from left to right, everywhere she possibly had gone. I just didn't see that smiling face of her's anymore. When we got in the car, I couldn't help myself from smiling, she just made me feel so warm. ~SCM

Protective Angels - 3 times an angel or angels have intervened and saved my life- and these are just the times I can account for. Once when I was 9, my bro, cousin and I were playing in this empty house where the garage had been left partway open. I was attempting to crawl back out when my cousin had found the opener button on the wall and was pressing it, unknowingly crushing me in the process. My young life flashed b4 my eyes and then, right to the side of me (my face pressed to the ground) I saw a bright like form of feet legs and hands. The garage suddenly felt lighter and I hurried and climbed out from under it just as my cousin sealed the door w/ him and my bro still inside. ~Kim

An Angel Spoke to Me and My Sister - When I was little, I had an imaginary friend who was a lot more real than a pretend one. His name was Michael, and I talked to him often. But that's not the freaky part... my younger sister also had an imaginary friend, and when my parent's asked her what the name was, she also said Michael!! (And she never heard of my pretend friend.) And I wondered if it was the Angel Michael, protecting my sister and me. Years later, a friend asked a psychic a general question about me. (Nothing to do with angels or anything.) And one of the first things she said to my friend was, "Tell her that the angel she thinks talked to her as a child, is that angel... and he's still there, always listening, whenever she wants." !!!! ~Anne

Angels in Philadelphia - I believe that I saw several angels on several occasions. The first siting was at a devastating fire in West Philadelphia of a church that once was affiliated with the People's Emergency Center. The building was gutted and there appeared to be about two or three pacing back and forth. Two enormous ones, both young white rather Raphelite styled males, about 5 building stories high appeared to be standing on either side of Market Street, about one block south of City Hall in 2001. My third experience was while riding a SEPTA bus east in 2003 on Spruce Street near Penn. gain, both appeared to be the rather traditional Raphelite types in their 20's, who stood about 12 feet tall, walking in a pair together and they strided right directly in front of the bus. In each case, my mind was on something entirely unrelated, as were my tasks, to anything except the most mundane activities of walking, busing and thinking about personal matters--but there they were! ~PrsntLife

How My Life Changed - My mum died in July 2005. I not only lost my mum but my best friend also. We always believed in fortune telling and I had had a very bad experience in her bedroom a few years before she became very ill. I was visited - by what I can only explain as an evil spirit - I felt I was being crushed into the bed and could not breathe - my mum witnessed this and the air in the room was icy cold and she could see her breath - the only way it stopped was when she started saying the Lord's Prayer. I was sore all over my body, especially my neck and shoulders for a few days. After my mum died I was afraid to try to make contact and I was unhappy, sad and very lonely. After a year I was walking past the Holistic Centre where I live and was drawn to Angel Card Readings - made an appointment - and how my life has turned around in unbelievable. The lady who gave the reading is not a medium BUT my mum came through and was standing on my right side - I felt her presence and I broke down. ~Rienne

Angels - I had just done the Reiki 1 and then at night I could not sleep. Around midnight I felt that I was floating though I was still on bed. When I opened my eyes I saw the whole room was filled with white shadows but I was not scared and I tried to make what they were. Then I realized those were the angles which were circling round my room. The feeling was so nice and comfortable that I did not wish the night to get over. When I was being attuned for the 3rd Master Reiki, though my eyes were closed I felt Jesus beaming on me (I am a Hindu) and after the attunement, when I opened my eyes I saw Jesus as a boy in gold and surrounding him were the angels. Jesus was talking to me saying that I have to heal as many people I can and I will go a long way in this treating people. Every time I do healing I always call on the angels and when I feel or sense them I start the treatment. I know that I am always with my Angels and a Guarding Angel. I do get answers from them if necessary. ~Tara

Homeless Angel - Driving home from work going through a neighborhood I saw a homeless man pushing a grocery cart filled with odds and ends. I suddenly felt the need to stop and give him money which was something I did not believe was a good idea. I felt compelled to do just that. He said that he had no shelter to go to but that God always took care of him. I gave him the money and he blessed me. I turned a corner and felt compelled to go back again. He had disappear into thin air. He was there in the middle of the street in the middle of a subdivision in the middle of a block and then he was gone shopping cart and all. My mom woke up during the night and there was an angel sitting on the end of her bed. She was wearing pale green, had red curly short hair and had a round rosy face. She held a large open book and spoke not a word but had a sweet smile. My mom smiled back then laid back down and went to sleep. She said she slept like baby. My mom was in her late 80's. ~Deborah

Little Orb Angel - I've been in dangerous situations in my life before, and somehow I've come out of it unhurt and safe. I attribute this safety to my angel. Sometimes when my eyes are closed this one little bright dot appears and blinks, just once. Immediately I say that's my angel and smile. I don't consciously say it, just my instinct. Somehow I know the little orb that blinked is my angel. It sounds strange, but I have the feeling I am not wrong. ~kat

Car Accident - The accident happened around 1979. My girlfriend Donna was driving the car on Bronx Expressway one evening with another friend and myself. We were in the left lane when the car decided to stall. Normally you would glide over but Donna hit her brake. That is all I remember until someone called my name "Veronica, wake up." I was in the back seat and we were hit from behind. The person pulled me out of the car. When we got to the hospital I asked for the man that pulled me from the car and the police said no one pulled you out of the car. You woke up and got out yourself. Someone helped me and I believed it was an angel or my guardian angel. I'll never forget that moment. ~Veronica M Kniffen

Angels Are Among Us - I believe in angels and my mom was one of them. Shortly before she died, she began preparing an amazing "shindig." She wanted to look nice, have great food, and enjoy and celebrate her life. Two days later she unexpectedly died. Don't tell me she didn't converse with the angels. Don't tell me she wasn't planning her entry into the hereafter with the angels and saints and our God. She had never ever been so happy in our life and she told me so. She brushed off all the materialistic things of this world - told me to get rid of her house - a house she had clung to with tenacity for years. But now all she wanted to do is party and celebrate. How fitting for my mama - how fitting of the greatest gift she could have ever given me. I am truly humbled and blessed by this last gift from my mother. When we laid her to her final rest, she had no wrinkles on her face whatsoever. The peace of the Lord was with her and I am forever grateful. It's only been eleven days, but I speak with her daily. !lola1948

No Doubt - There is no doubt in my mind that angels exist. They are a very active complement to my practice. Years ago, during a choir rehearsal at my old church, I was drawn to the prayer room in which was sitting a council of angels. I was told at the time they would be taking an active role in guiding us. Shortly after, the Times Magazine feature an article on our beliefs in angels. I asked another choir member to go into the room and he experienced the same wonderful loving experience that brought us both to tears of joy. ~Rev.Frederick

Guardian Angels - My two dearest friends of fifty years were each killed in similar head-on collisions seventeen months apart, AND each occurred two days after the birth of my daughter's children, which convinces me that the timeliness of these two accidents was predetermined, so that each baby could have a very special guardian angel. One friend was my daughter's godmother, and the other was my daughter's namesake. The second child was born five and 1/2 weeks early to coincide with the death of my friend who had been on life support for a week. As soon as the baby arrived, she died two days later. ~carolgould

Bright Light in Bedroom - I had a surgery a year ago. One night I was reading a book, how to communicate with your guardian angel, then I fell asleep. Around 3:30 I woke up and there was one bright light in my room. I saw a big person dressed in baby blue color. I could not see his or her face. I saw her leg was immense, was near the end of my bed, I got up and began to read Psalm 23 aloud, but that was an experience I will never forget, never thought I would get a experience something like that... I did not if was angel or spiritual guide, but was very blessing. ~Oneida pineda

Angel in Disguise - An old boyfriend broke my heart by leaving one day without explanation. Years later I receive a phone call from his mother, he was dying of brain cancer. She feels seeing me would bring comfort to him. This was a very emotional situation I found myself in. I decided to visit him and ended up being committed to him in a nurturing way for the rest of his life, which ended up being a year. This time was an emotional roller coaster and I often felt confused. One day while going to the train station, an old woman dressed in black stopped right in front of me and said "God loves you, you are doing the right thing" and she walked away. I quickly turned around and she was nowhere to be found. After my friend passed away, I saw the same woman again, dressed the same way, this time she said "God loves you and you did the right thing." Angels needn't have wings to bring messages and comfort. Thanks for listening. Peace, ~Kathy
