How often have you had dreams of angels? When was the last time you heard that soft voice of guidance in your ear during the day in a daydream? People have been having a love affair with angels and dreams since the beginning of time, as seen by statues of angels all over our world.
Our dreams can take us on a celestial journey into the greater mystery of our subconscious and the superconscious world which can lead us into the realm of the angels. We hear the word angel so often we may have become numb to it. What exactly is an angel?
According to the Webster Dictionary, there are 2 definitions for an angel.
a spiritual being believed to act as an attendant, agent, or messenger of God, conventionally represented in human form with wings and a long robe.
“God sent an angel to talk to Gideon.”
a person of exemplary conduct or virtue.
“women were then seen as angels or whores.”
synonyms: saint, paragon of virtue;
gem, treasure, darling, dear;
“she’s an absolute angel”
In this article our focus will be on the first definition; beings believed to be a messenger of God.
The idea of Angelic Messengers interacting with humans will be discussed even further in a Video Podcast Panel of Angel and Dream experts available for your watching and listening pleasure at the bottom of the article.
Angels can appear to us in dreams and/or… in the waking world. They can show up in our dreams, or we can be warned of their coming in our waking world during a dream. We often think of angels appearing to us in dreams with messages of love and reassurance. However, angels are also known as warriors who can take human form and walk amongst us, with no wings, and no halo.
Angels can look so much like us God had to warn us in dreams that his warrior angle was on the way and to obey.
Behold, I send an angel before you, to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place which I have prepared. Give heed to him and hearken to his voice, do not rebel against him, for he will not pardon your transgression; for my name is in him. “But if you hearken attentively to his voice and do all that I say, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries. “When my angel goes before you … and I blot them out. (Exodus 23:20-23)
The second message in this message concerns the Rule of Permission. You must ask for help in order to receive help. The words “Ask and you will receive…” have a deep meaning.
In medieval angelology, angels constituted the lowest of the nine celestial orders which are seraphim, cherubim, thrones, dominations or dominions, virtues, powers, principalities or princedoms, archangels, and angels. Prayers are powerful and do not go unheard. Your prayer can trigger the Rule of Permission.
The Rule of Permission is a Universal Law that allows for Heavenly Help when we request it and deters interference from celestial being, deceased loved ones, and spirit guides, when we do not.
We have freedom of choice that is respected throughout Heaven and earth, and everything in-between.
The Rule of Permission is the saying “Ask and you will receive,” in motion. Prayer is a way of asking for help which triggers the Law of Attraction. And your dreams are a Divine Doorway through which help in the form of angelic guidance is sent.
The name “angel” comes via ecclesiastical Latin, from the Greek word angelos or the Hebrew word malakh, both meaning “messenger.” Angels are pure spirit, in other words, they have no physical bodies. Angels do, however, take on human form sometimes, as clarified by St. Thomas Aquinas in his Summa Theologica, and as you can read more about in the book of Tobit, for instance.
