|"Another Angel" by Liz Wright|
I am often asked: “How can I get in touch with my Guardian Angel?” The answer is simple. All you have to do is ask. Angels love to teach us how to communicate with them. They send us signs and messages and when we are open and ready to receive our life takes on a whole new meaning.
Originally Angels were not depicted with wings and the earliest example of a winged Angel in art is in a 5th century mosaic in the church of St. Prudencia in Rome. Angels in biblical and ancient non-biblical Jewish and Christian texts are portrayed as spiritual beings, superior to humans in both power and knowledge. The Renaissance artist Raphael—whose angelic name is surely significant—painted angels in breathtaking beauty. Angels, as Divine messengers, inspired mystics such as Emanuel Swedenborg (1688 – 1722), whose spiritual awakening and encounters with angels (as he described them) from 1746 onwards led to increased psychic and prophetic ability.
At this time in history, more and more people are now connecting with angels and have the chance to evolve as a result.
