What is an Angel?
The word angel is thought to be derived from the Greek word "Angelos", which means, "Messenger". In Christian, Muslim, Jewish and other theologies an angel can be one who acts as a messenger, attendant or agent of God/Goddess/Universe...
Angels are spirits without bodies, who possess superior intelligence, gigantic strength, and surpassing holiness.
They are composed of ethereal matter, which allows them to take on whichever physical form best suits their immediate needs.
Angels enjoy an intimate relationship to God as His special adopted children, contemplating, loving and praising Him in heaven. Some angels are frequently sent as a messenger to men.
Angels are the essence of pure unconditional love and joy, and stem from the heart of God/Goddess.
Now you will ask God or Goddess?
Is God male or female?
He is neither and both at the same time. What is referred to as God, is just the Supreme Source of the whole existence, a Spirit of such a magnitude, so unconceivable, that (S)He has no sex and could be both at the same time, if it chooses to. So the reference to God/Goddess was just to emphasize that however you choose to call upon Him/Her, it is of no importance.
Here are some of the ways that angels can communicate with us:
Through special songs that you suddenly tune into on the radio.
With surprising shapes or rainbows in the clouds.
In little sparkles of golden, silvery, or purple light that you might see at the edges of your physical vision.
Through special dreams of castles, rivers, sunlit corridors and other bright places.
Through animals that put in a sudden appearance (my angels often speak to me through bunnies! Bunnies always appear for me when I need encouragement – even on crowded city streets).
With moments of synchronicity or “cosmic coincidences” where something or someone comes your way in a strange but wonderful fashion, providing a message that you alone need to hear. Pay attention to what is coming towards you, because synchronicities are everywhere. Noticing bumper stickers on the car driving in front of you is an especially fun way to receive messages from your angels.

Also known as Saint Michael in the Catholic Church, he is considered one of the greatest of all the angels and the protector of spiritual warriors. Michael is a powerful spiritual helper who delivers souls to heaven after death. In his day-to-day service to humanity, Michael also functions as a powerful protector. He can give you feelings of strength and courage and help you overcome your fears. Michael is also powerful against negative people or situations, helping you transmute darkness. Call on Michael when you need protection, strength, or personal stamina.
How Angels Communicate
As servants of God or a loving Higher Power, angels are always sending messages to remind us that we’re not alone. Angels are not allowed to overwhelm us with their presence though, as that might frighten us and turn us away from angelic communication. Instead, they communicate in subtle ways, using signs, symbols, and daily events to give us messages which will be uniquely meaningful to us.
