Angels are messengers in spirit who bring higher thoughts to humanity.
"Angels are spirits, but it is not because they are spirits that they are angels. They become angels when they are sent. For the name angel refers to their office, not their nature. You ask the name of this nature, it is spirit; you ask its office, it is that of an angel, which is a messenger." - St. Augustine
Angels are from the light, having come from a higher perspective and place of understanding. This state of a being is different from the mind of lost spirits, who have not yet been freed from fear.
Angels Quotes: What do Angels do?
To think that we are all alone and not having a greater audience around us might be a bit naive. Angels, I have come to find out, are with us whether we know it or not:
"We not only live among men, but there are airy hosts, blessed spectators, sympathetic lookers-on, that see and know and appreciate our thoughts and feelings and acts." - Henry Ward Beecher
"We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses." - Hebrews 12:1
"Make yourself familiar with the angels, and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen, they are present with you." - St. Francis de Sales
Many a spiritual writer has known and shared this very idea of unseen spirits with us, maybe even in disguise:
"Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." - Hebrews 13:2
"We are like children, who stand in need of masters to enlighten us and direct us; God has provided for this, by appointing his angels to be our teachers and guides." - St. Thomas Aquinas
Angels Quotes: How do we Hear Angels?
Most of us have a myriad of thoughts that run through our brain daily. This chaos can muddle the ability to perceive the deeper thoughts that bubble forth from within a person:
"Let us be silent that we may hear the whisper of God." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
When we learn to temporarily silence the mind, we tune-in to something greater deep inside of us. This is a great quote about angels and how they speak to us:
"For, as it is written in the book of the Prophets: 'And the angel that spoke in me, said to me...' He does not say, 'Spoke to me' but 'Spoke in me'..." - St. Augustine
And when we hear these greater ideas borne upon the wings of love, it is then that we know that we have touched something higher, something that brings peace. And if these messages can be brought to us by others in spirit, then we, too, might one day share the thoughts of enlightenment to others:
"Every man contemplates an angel in his future self." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angel" - Luke 20:36
Sometimes, we become so earthly-focused that we cannot wrap our minds around the idea that there is something much greater at work. It's within us and we are within it. This energy of which I write is all-loving, ever-forgiving, blissful, joyous and the truth of who we are. We are sons and daughters of this "most high." - LC
