How Angels Brighten My Life

In continuing this exploration of the world of angels, I offer my personal story with these celestial beings of light-filled love.

So valuable to heaven is the dignity of the human soul that every member of the human race has a guardian angel from the moment the person begins to be. — St. Jerome

Do You Hear What I Hear? Do You See What I See?

Angels entered my life at an early age. Actually, it was at birth. I’ve later wondered if they were called in because my Mom lost her first child (my sister) at only 18 months. My Mother’s prolonged, immense grief over my sister’s death was finally lifted when an angel spoke to her in a dream.

This framed painting of a guardian angel was given to my parents for my birth. I still display it all these years later.

So it is in rugged crises, in unwearable endurance, and in aims which put sympathy out of question, that the angel is shown. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Some say the word angel is derived from the Latin angelus and the Greek angelos meaning messenger as one going or one sent. The el is said to come from the Hebrew Elohim which means God. Together, angels are messengers of God.

The Power of Words

Do we ever truly know the power of a word, sentence or message and the significance it may play in our life?

At only 5 years old, I serendipitously received in the mail a coin inscribed With God All Things Are Possible on the front, and We hope you will carry this piece with you always as a reminder that God loves you on the reverse. Growing up in a dysfunctional home where rage and chaos were the norm, I often held tightly to this pocket piece for comfort.

I still carry that same piece with me today.

Decades later I received another pocket piece, this one the Angel of Hope

For He will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. Psalms 91:11

The Power of Perception

Angels continued appearing in my life and particularly when I began noticing and appreciating every day gifts — when I really started to become awake myself…and living more consciously. One does not have to be religious to encounter angels, but having a spiritual life certainly helps to recognize their messages or when they appear in human form. Believing and accepting is key.

I think we all do have a guardian angel. I believe they work through us all the time, when we are thoughtful and good and kind to each other. — Roma Downey.


About 15 years ago when discovering the concept of synchronicity and understanding that there are no coincidences, I began experiencing the magic of chance encounters. Life became more interesting, more pleasant, and I became more grateful. I’ve learned that coincidences are God’s way of speaking to us, and synchronicity is the Universe working for our higher good.

One of my most memorable encounters with this phenomenon occurred 11 years ago. Never having any surgeries and not knowing if a suspicious mammogram indicated cancer, my anxiety levels ran high. After a lengthy 3AM drive to Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in NYC, my husband needed a coffee.

Imagine my disbelief when stepping on the doorstep of the tiny coffee shop to see a stone inscripted Angels Gather Here.

Later, while I was in surgery, an angel (in male human form) who we first saw in the coffee shop repeatedly reappeared near my husband — in the chapel, at a crowded 12-step meeting across town, and later in the hospital waiting area. Looking directly at my husband, he stated, “Angels are everywhere.” (I was cancer-free by the way.)

I now have my own Angels Gather Here stone which welcomes visitors in all seasons to my home…

Chance Encounters of the Angelic Kind

Many of us have had Oracle experiences, though we may not have called them that.

Have you had the feeling there’s a guardian angel looking out for you? Or heard an inner voice that is not your own? Gotten a profound insight that you would not have otherwise considered? Had your prayers answered? Especially in an unexpected way? These are a few of the ways that the invisible world guides us.
Cristina Smith

Help increase understanding of angelic beings by sharing your personal experience. Perhaps they have come to you in times of need, offered comfort, or protection for a loved one. Spread the word and help fill the world with light.

May Angels Enlighten Our Days and Nights with Love

  2. Indeed, WP IS glitchy. I just replied to you and again it’s invisible! I wanted to tell you not to be so hard on yourself; you have been and are going through massive changes, not all pretty ones either. Whether you were asleep for 30 years or not, you are awake now and so awake you are a wonderful Warrior for the Truth. Be patient. Stalling may actually be biding time while the right scenario is in vitro. Trust and keep the faith. I do think God will fortify you to continue on. 🙂

  3. WP is glitchy. Angels helped me even when I went away from my faith, being red-pilled brought me back to Christianity and away from new age/occultism which misled me. My life feels like a daze, like I was asleep for 30 yrs. I think God is trying to help me but depression is the obstacle. I’m stalling when I should be actively doing things. I think I feel overwhelmed but thank you for the encouragement.

  4. Gosh, I could have sworn I responded to this yesterday but alas my tech woes continue it seems. So happy to hear you have experienced a lot of synchronicity but considering how wide awake you are, I am not at all surprised. 🙂 Your insight and encouragement are also appreciated as sometimes the weight of evil can feel so heavy, we need to call in those angels. I am sure they will assist you in your upcoming changes as well.

  5. I’ve experienced direct assistance from angels too, I’ll write about them sometime. I agree that synchronicity is often loving messages from God, I’ve experienced so many in very specific ways. During dark times it’s crucial to remember we’re not at the mercy of evil.

  6. Bless you, we are all being guided one way or another, even the bad guys holding their pathways are helping the Earth and ourselves liberation.
    For the tighter they hold onto the keys of our prison, the more we all rise to release ourselves into the freedoms we all were meant to be. 💚⚘💚
