Have you met an angel?
No, I am not joking. This is a serious question.
The word "angel" derives from the Greek word "angelos", which means "messenger". Typically, a messenger from God. Or, if you prefer, a messenger from the Universe. One who comes to tell us how we can play our rightful part in the Universal plan, and also how to become open to the good things God, or the Universe, wants to let us have.
Personally I believe in spiritual beings who are "personal angels", just as I believe in a spiritual being who is my "personal God". But this is really only one small aspect of the concept of an angel, and you do not need to believe in angels as spiritual beings in order to gain enormous benefits through your interaction with angels.
An angel can easily be your next door neighbour. A work colleague. A relative. A close personal friend. If this person gives you a message from God or from the Universe, even if they do not realize they are giving you this message, then they are most certainly an angel. An angel in disguise. An angel who does not even realize he or she is an angel. An angel who is flesh and blood just like you and me.
Let me answer the question I asked you. No matter what you think I can assure you that you HAVE met an angel. Not just one, but many angels. And you will meet many more. The angels you have met have probably always been in disguise, so perhaps you have not recognized them. They have carried messages to you, but either you have not heard the message or, if you heard it, you have rejected it as nonsense.
Do you know the story of the time Abraham and Sarah met with angels? Those angels promised them that Sarah would have a baby. This was difficult for Abraham and Sarah to believe, as he was 99 and she was 90. Imagine that - conceiving and giving birth at the age of 90! But it happened anyway.
Although they found the message difficult to believe, at least Abraham and Sarah heard the message and knew it was from God. And what had been promised happened 9 months later when Sarah gave birth to their son Isaac.
Maybe you believe this story from Genesis 18, or maybe you do not. But whether or not you believe it, know for certain that angels are constantly giving you messages, all of them about very good things and all of them true. Usually you need to be receptive to those messages in order to receive those good things from the Universe. If you fail to hear the message, or refuse to believe it, then it is unlikely you will be able to receive the blessings God, or the Universe, really wants to give you.
Be more open. Be more ready to receive the messages the Universe is constantly sending you. Change your state in this way and you will be amazed at the way your life can change for the better.
Everyone on earth performs as an angel many times during their lifetime. Again, usually without realizing that is what they are doing. So if you feed someone who is hungry, clothe someone who is naked, visit someone who is in prison, you are doing those good things for an angel, a messenger from God. And the Universe sees this and will bless you even more for doing it.
Finally, if everyone on earth performs as an angel many times, clearly that means that you too are an angel. You are an angel in disguise. You carry messages from God to those around you whether or not you realize you are doing so. If you recognize this is happening, then you can tune yourself more clearly so those messages come through more strongly and so even more messages come through. Just like tuning a radio properly so there is a clearer signal. Become more in tune with the Universe, more in tune with your purpose in life and you will find not only are you helping those around you far more than you may have thought possible, but also you are becoming far more receptive to all the good the Universe wishes to give you. This is perhaps one of the most important secrets of Manifestation, so learn it well!
