Do Angels Exist?
The last few decades the subject of angels is often dealt with in books, films, t.v. serials. It was always a favorite subject with painters. Music has also been written about them. Generally it seems that it is a subject well liked. Seminars now everywhere inform us about every detail that concerns angels, guardian angels and how to contact them, how to hold discussions with them, how to know their names. The majority of people believe in their existence and why not since so do the greatest religions. There are, of course those skeptics who never accept anything which they do not perceive with their senses.
So, do angels really exist?
The word “angel” has its origin in to the Greek word “angelos” which means the one who carries the message, i.e the messenger. Such an Angel was in Greek mythology Hermes, the messenger of Zeus. He was also the messenger between Heaven and Zeus and the Underworld, the Kingdom of Death. In this capacity he also accompanied the souls of those who died to their last abode.
Human imagination portrayed angels with huge wings with which they presumably fly. As Christian religion also accepts their existence, icons are full of them and there is also ample mention of them in the Old and New Testament. We also meet angels in the Koran. In Hinduism we meet similar entities called devas. In many mystics’ writings we find them with all the hierarchy and numerous names. Actually it is said that there are more angels in existence than humans. This is understandable since it seems they are immortal.
It was, after all, Archangel Gabriel who offered to Virgin Mary the lily and prophesied the birth of the World’ s savior, Christ.
However the question in the Modern World arises again: Do angels exist then?
Well, it depends what exactly we mean with this question. Are there beings with wings flying about which qualify to be called as angels? I doubt it.
Angels belong to the invisible World, a non-material World, a World that definitely exists in other energy levels with different energy vibrations and waves than that of the material world. Any beings, or better energies existing in those worlds need no wings in order to move about. The existence of angels, if any, is not similar to humans. Angels have no form.
Furthermore, since from times immemorial, in different parts of the world there is a belief in their existence must not be ignored. Does this belief spring from an inner knowledge like the belief in God?
Science has up to now confirmed that the whole Universe comprises of different vibrations of energy. Even our material world is just energy. Many different vibrations and waves of energy create different forces in the universe. Some of those energies we are aware of and understand. However there is more that we neither conceive nor understand and we know nothing about. Sometimes only the result of their existence becomes known to us.
I cannot dismiss the belief of millions of people in angels lightheartedly as many do. I am not that arrogant, to dismiss what I do not see as non-existent. The only reasonable explanation I can give, basing my conclusion to both the deep rooted beliefs and to what science has so far discovered, is that angels probably exist but not in human form.
They are those energies close to human energies, easy to come in contact with, and perhaps even assimilate their force. This could explain the guardian angel myth.
It seems that believing in them creates the necessary vibrations to reach them and, as is usually nowadays said, projecting our wish mentally and directing our attention to a desired result, multiplies our own force and energy and affects the energies around us and what we wish is accomplished.
In this sense, yes, angels do exist and, yes we can come into contact with them and have them join us. We must however always remember that angels have no form whatsoever and they are only energies, invisible and intangible.
