Growing up as an atheist, I viewed angels as a lovely décor piece during the festive period or a flirtatious costume choice for a Halloween party. I never imagined that one day I would form a powerful connection with my own guardian angel. Receiving a sense of support and guidance that would match no other.
Belief in guardian angels can be traced through Greek philosophy, the old & new testament, Judaic rabbinic literature and the mu’aqqibat of the Qur’an. These angels are devoted to protecting and guiding us in this physical world from birth until death. Our guardian angels will not intervene in our lives unless they are invited, or we face a life-threatening situation before our time.

I know my guardian angel is with me and listening when I close my eyes. I see a tiny but very bright speck of light dancing energetically behind my eyelids.
Angels will also give you a friendly spiritual style nudge that they have an essential message for you. Do you wake up at the same time in the middle of the night? See numbers regularly, get unexpected energy bursts or feel a pull to do something? This might be a sign that your angel is trying to communicate with you. Believe it or not, my guardian angel sometimes gives me signs…
