Artists have painted beautiful renditions of angels for decades. Angels are also mentioned frequently in many religious and spiritual texts. I often wonder why there isn’t a lot of talk about them regularly. Today I wanted to share two very personal experiences where angels protected me, which is why I am still here today.
After these experiences, I began doing more and more research about angels. We all have guardian angels, yet they will not interfere with your free will or your life unless it is a life or death situation and not your time to go. Both stories I am about to share were life and death situations where my angels intervened. I am beyond grateful.
I am sure I saw and spoke to angels as a child, but as we grow up we also begin to focus only on what it tangible outside of whatever religious faith we may have been brought up in.
I grew up Christian, and there was not too much mention of angels outside of the stories in the Bible. After beginning my career as a professional dancer, and just returning from an eight month tour, I moved into an apartment in Brooklyn. The location had access to both the G and L trains.
I can’t even remember what I had done that day, or who I had spent it with, but I returned home very late. That night I had taken the L train home. When I got off at my stop, it wasn’t very long before I noticed two men in dark clothing following me as I walked home alone. I also found it odd that there wasn’t anyone else around since New York City is always so busy.
When I realized that this wasn’t looking good, I heard two very loud voices telling me how fast to walk, which way to go, and even which entrance to use for my apartment building, since there were two options.
One voice was male and the other female. By the grace of God I made it into my apartment building safe, yet very shaken up. I had never heard voices come from out of nowhere before. Feeling grateful yet confused I asked their names. One of their names was Michael. I discovered later that it was Archangel Michael, who is known for providing protection for anyone who called upon him.
My second experience was in a pretty bad car accident. I grew up in Viriginia, and I had driven in extreme thunderstorms and torrential downpours since receiving my driver’s license. I considered myself a safe responsible driver, and was of course extra cautious when it snowed. When I moved to Los Angeles, I had no idea why everyone was so freaked out about rain. It was only rain!
I didn’t understand that because it hardly ever rains in Southern California, the streets have no drainage systems. On top of that, there are layers and layers of oil and other car related residues that build up on the roads. On this day I was meeting up a friend to go shopping.
After coming around a curve on Sunset Blvd, my car hydroplaned. I lost complete control of my car as it spun around twice before hitting a tree. I have no idea how my car did not hit anyone else’s since the road was very busy as usual in LA.
While my car was spinning everything was in slow motion, and I felt a presence with me holding my body completely still from head to toe.
When my car stopped, I took off my seatbelt and got out. I had absolutely no injuries, just a bit of an ache which appeared later that evening and completely disappeared afterwards. A gentleman pulled over, jumped out of his car, and was in shock that I was okay.
My car was completely totaled, but I was fine. This was a huge blessing since my body is not only my art, but my income as a professional dancer. My life changed completely after that.
These experiences were major wake up calls, and I began learning as much as I could about angels. No matter if you think you are alone in this world, you are not. There are loving presences with you every day no matter what. Angels are here to help you even with the smallest mundane things in life. All you have to do is ask. I wish I had known this years ago, yet I am so grateful to know this now.
