Heart Do You Believe In Angels?

I'm a Christian woman. I'm not deeply religious as going to church every Sunday. However, I do have a deep faith and believe in God. As deep as my fairh is, I never could have imagine, nor ever think a miracle would happen to me one early afternoon. I walked out to my garage to light a cigarette and sat in my chair. As I had just put my cigarette out to stand up and walk inside, I suddenly saw a figure standing before me. In complete shock and surprise, I thought I was looking at a ghost. I know I felt like I turned pale as I'm stunned by this man standing in front of me. We caught eyes and he stared so deep into my eyes like he was looking into my soul. Crazy? Yea I thought so at first too. I was still in shock and disbelief. I suddenly had looked all around taking every inch of him into my mind. Still a ghost I thought if you believe in ghost.
Suddenly, as I looked him up and down, I noticed something on his back sticking out.
Wings, yes they were wings. Now, I am realizing what he is. Still stunned, I looked at him again to take another look. He is so beautiful and bright with a bright aura around him and dressed how many believe angels are dressed. Once my mind settled down and I looked back to his face to get another look, his wings opened up. Like lightning, his wings went up and wrapped around me like I'm being hugged by him.
Every beautiful thing imagineable you can ever think God's love and heaven feels like I felt. There aren't enough words to describe what it felt like, nor any emotion that I have ever felt can ever come close to the feeling I felt in that moment. It was holy, love, happiness, peace, serenity, warm, and etc... It felt like heaven, it felt like home.
A minute later he disappeared and the feeling was gone just like he was.
Surreal it was and still is to me. I remember thinking and asking myself if I really saw what I think I saw? Yes
Am I crazy? No.
I thought to myself again if I really saw this beautiful angel, yes I did see him. Not only did I see him, I felt him too! It was overwhelmingly powerful and good!
Why did this happen to me? What makes me so special? I don't have the answers. But, I did go to my church to talk to one of my pastors and ended up talking to several of them there. I honestly thought when I told them what had happened, they all were going to say I'm crazy, but none of them did. Instead, to my surprise they all believed me. So much so they opened up a Bible and showed me a chapter that talks about the gifts God gives to all of us. Not all have the same gifts, but each of us are given a gift from God.
Do I believe in angels? Yes, I believed in angels before this blessing. If I ever had any doubts before, I don't have any doubts now.

Diamond Tiger: I don't believe in beings with wings like you mention.

I believe in our own Angel Energy surrounding us by being kind and positive and trust all is good for us....We are our own angels. I WAS born religious and took a lot of years to find my TRUTHS.

Happy you found your angels...

My Mood: Do You Believe In Angels?

This is an interesting thread.

One important thing for me is my whanau (my kinship group or big family). Your whanau is not just your parents and any siblings you may have. It includes uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, grandparents and so on.

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.

Belief and the brain's 'God spot' | The Independent

This an interesting newspaper article that touches on a scientific explanation of religious experience.

I believe you Diamond Tiger<3. Yes. I believe in angels. Angels are talked about through the Bible in the old and new testament, and I certainly believe what the Bible says. There are a great many of them in heaven and on Earth doing many different things. They are in the invisible eternal realm and God may open some people's eyes to see them from time to time. I've never seen one, but I believe that they are around us, and protect the heirs of salvation. BF

"Spirits" I guess would be the general category. I have seen one visually, have encountered two other beings. It is my belief that all three were former living humans that had died, and were, well, ghosts.

I found that line very moving. I recently looked at Creative Corner and there is more poetry in that single line than one guy's entire output.

I respect your beliefs. Your thoughts about it and personal belief in each individuals own angel energy is unique. I can't say I have ever heard that before. Thank you for commenting and sharing your thoughts.

Best wishes!
