You are welcome, and as I've gotten older I've become more of a deep critical thinker...for years of my life I bought what was tossed to me...now, I question EVERYTHING. For me, I was given a lot of negative stuff from the religious world and worked for years to find my Truths.

Just a quick reminder here to be sure this discussion stays on topic and within guidelines.
This is what is posted at the entrance to the Sanctuary Forum

So where a discussion about angels is fine, it just should not turn into a debate about religion.
Thanks

I think most people do believe in angels whether it is tied to a religion or not. I think we all hope there is another place that is beyond our human body whether some may call it heaven ot something else. If such a place exist, (I believe it does,) where you are on cloud nine for lack of a better word and there is no pain or suffering I want to go to that place. If this experience I had with this angel is a indicator, I have no doubts this place exists.

In a world of so much pain and chaos there are so many people who feel like they are all alone. If anything, I can only hope that sharing my experience is a reminder to all those who believe that you are never alone when you may think otherwise. I know for sure I'm not alone.

I am a 6th generation member of both (mother and father) sides of my whanau. It is now 8th generation thanks to some of my nieces and nephews and their partners.

The importance of your whanau can be explained by some ideas from evolutionary biology like kin selection and reciprocal altruism.
That is interesting. I'm not sure that I understand it. I may have to do some research on it. Thank you for sharing! 😃

Again I believe if we think good will prevail vs walking thru life in gloom/doom mindset, that these are the angels...my thinking from enough years of positive mind work.

I meant to add to my posting, look at your glass as half full vs half empty.

That is great you have a positive mindset. We all need that in our life to look to the positive. I do understand the conceot of a glass half empty and half full and believe in it also.

I also wanted to say to you about your mom how deeply sorry I am for your loss. It doesn't matter how old you are, always need mom.
From my experience with the loss of my mom, I only begun to dream about her last year and she has been gone since 2000. I believe our family and friends are angels and they are granted a chance to come to us in out dreams. Just maybe you have dreamed of her and may not remember? Just a thought.
I read a article which I will have to find a few years ago that depending on where you are in your grief process may decide how and when you hear from loved ones who have passed on. I believe she is a angel watching over you hun.
Please stay positive and happy. We need more of that in this world. I am not judgemental overall. I accept everyone the way they are. By sharing my experience with my angel encounter, I had hoped it would bring that to people, positivity, love, and hope.
I did have a second encounter with another angel earlier this year. I just have not gotten around to posting about it yet. I will do it soon.

Kiwi,
Your comment and is very interesting. Not sure I understand it. As I had said before, I will have to do some research on it. You can always explain more what it is too. It would be greatly appreciated.

Brokenfriend,
It is wonderful to hear people do believe me and my experience. I do believe in the Bible and all it says about angels. I must admit, I was hesitant at first sharing my experience with my church. I truly was not sure how they would react to it. I was so relieved and thankful the church did believe me and help guided me to a somewhat answer as to why I had this experience and another since my first encounter. What my church had said is, I have the gift of discernment. Forgive me, I don't recall what chapter and verse it is. The church also had me take a test right after I had shared my experience that would say for sure what gift I do have from God. Two things came up clear.
1. Gift of discernment
2. Gift of wisdom and knowledge.
As I had said before, I never could have ever dreames, nor imagine this would happen to me.
Once my church had explained to me what all it means it made more sense then. I thank God every single day since this miraculous experience happened to me. To feel God's love and grace in that moment was heavenly in redible. So powerful and good!

I also spoke to a friend who is also a therapist to get her thoughts on it. She also is a Christian. I thought to myself, who better to ask. To my surprise, she also believed me too and confirmed I'm not crazy. Furthermore, she had shared with me a conversation of a child had also expressed having a similar experience as my own and was dressed much the same as I had described to her. Thank you so much for commenting!

I meant to add this to my last post. Yes, I absolutely believe there are all around us, whether we are blessed to see them, or not.
Protecting us this I do believe too. You actually made my mind up on whether to continue and share my second angel encounter with you and everyone else. After I share my next experience, I have no more experiences to share. Unless, for some unknown reason God wants me to see one again.

To be continued......

Default Do You Believe In Angels? Pt 2

First, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who commebted and liked my post. It means a bunch to me, thank you again! 😃
Its ok to not believe in angels too or feel there is a scientific exolanation for it. I respect everyone's thoughts and feelings on the topic. Even if I may disagree, I still want to hear from you and your persoective on why you may not believe just as much as I want to hear from everyone who do believe.
I mentioned in the first post I made on this topic that I also had a second angel encounter earlier this year. Here it goes....

I was home on this day and made the decision to lay down to take a nap. As I had just entered my bedroom and layed down in my bed to close my eyes, I suddenly was forced to open my eyes back up from a noise I heard that sounded like a swooshing noise. As I looked around I saw this angel dropping down from my ceiling into my bedroom. Stunned a bit by what I'm seeing again for the second time now, only not so stunned I couldn't move or grasp what I'm experiencing again.

Here I am looking at this gorgeous being standing atvthe foot of my bed with his wings still wide open for me to see. He was not the same angel that I had saw prior. His fearures were different just by the color of his hair. Also more mascular built than the other angel.
Before I could even open my mouth to ask him a question of who he is and why was he here, he turned around facing away from me and he reached down into his waistband and pulled out a sword. Ok, now I'm a little more taken back by it and the reason for it. I tilted my head to look at what he was looking at and why he had a sword. Before I could get a look, his wings opened up even wider and shielded me and my view.
He was there protecting me from something. What exactly, I'm not sure, I don't know I can only speculate.
At this point, all I could do is say ok I'm safe and will be ok. I'm in good hands. I layed back down and closed my eyes.

That may sound crazy that I just closed my eyes and went to sleep like I didn't just have a angel drop out of the sky through my ceiling. Lol This vary thought and question as why I reacted the way I had, I also pondered about. My only answer is I have already experienced a angel prior, at this point the shock is out of my system enough now. I even told myself if I were to ever encounter another angel I would be more relaxed in the hopes of asking questions. At this moment when it happened, I felt I had my answer. He was there to protect me. I still would have wanted to ask questions but he was no longer facing me for me to talk to him directly face to face as the last angel had done. Still crazy thinking that? I suppose it is. What would be the right reaction? I'm not sure. Its not everyday you encounter a angel. I'm thankful and blessed I got to have this second encounter with aother angel and he is on the God's side from my personal view and beliefs.

After having this second angel encounter, I have zero doubts about my first experience and that angels are real. Not to say I doubted it before. The more you experience something I feel your faith and belief grows. 🧚*♀️🌈❤

What are your thoughts, do you believe?
