Guardian Angels To Know


Most of us look for the guardian angels to come in and do something for us.  That is not how you should expect them to operate.  I have an upcoming book on reconsidering guardian angels.  


The word angel simply means messenger.  That is for the most part how they do their work.  They do before situations prepare the best way for you to go when the situation, dangerous or not, looms, but they make the way know.  After you consider the message given, it is up to you to move.


An explicit example of this is the case of Lot in the Bible.  The angels came with the message of the coming destruction of Sodom.  But it was up to Lot to flee with his family the destruction.  [What happened explicitly there usually happens implicitly in the world around us.]


As with the Magi who brought gifts to the child Jesus,

wise men

they were given the message, and they choose to bring the gifts.  Being astrologer they must have considered the meaning of the star that appeared.

Then after consideration, as astrologers do, and knowing, they acted.   


Often we receive messages and just do not pay attention.  I had an incident that is a good example of this as I was looking for something to write about in this, my next, book.  I could not think of anything.


I was at the restaurant one evening, and in the give-a-penny-take-a-penny bowl I noticed there a 1903 Indian Head Penny.  That is so rare.

I have not seen one of those in circulation since I was a little boy.  I had no idea that any of them were still floating around.  I just thought that was interesting and did not think about it.   But there it was staring at me.  I showed it to the cashier, and she look and put it back in the bowel.  


The next morning I was back at the cafe, and it was still there staring at me.  I thought someone is trying to tell me something.  No one has picked up or unknowingly used it?   A message popped in my head,  “It is waiting for you, Bill.”  So, I gave a penny and took a penny.   


All of the parts of this story are unexpectable.  What is going on?  I had to think about this.


I started contemplating what this meant.  Then I thought about ways to understand the angelic message.  I thought I can do psychometry or meditation, etc.  Maybe one of the alternative ways will tell me the message.  


As I thought, I occurred to me that I was trying figure out how to know alternatively.  I was thinking all these ways of knowing could make several books.  Then I realized I had been searching for a subject for a new book.   The guardians had pointed me to the path.  I started a book on pendulums and knowing with them.  Several other ways of are available and can make individual books or composite books.  Then I started this book on a compendium of alternative ways of knowing.


Thank you angels.  They had prepared that penny to be there for me when I needed it.  They got my attention.  When I at first missed it, it was offered to me again.   


Finally I got the message and acted.  That is the way of the guardian angels.  They provided and showed me the way.  I just had to listen and act.  I eased into my next book.  


Everything that happens good or bad has a message, if we just look for it, listen to it , and act on it.


To the masters of spirituality, everything has a message.  [I so often forget to look for the message.]  


When something unusual happens or catches your attention, look, listen, and act.  You will know what to do.


The guardian angels, often unseen, are a wonderful blessing to the attentive believer in them.   This is a magical way to know.
