I was just curious if some of you more experienced practitioners would share with my encounters you've had with angelic spirits, I'm mostly curious about the Heavenly Host, those not fallen. I've had only one angel contact me and 'he' is rather subtle, patient and kind but I'm looking to read between the lines to see variations with Powers, Virtues and the Archangels.
I don't know anything about them but you have to be careful, it is said many are hostile torwards humans and more dangerous to hurt you. But yes there are the nice ones as well that are paitient, kind and all this type of stuff. Sorry for not being able to answer more.
I started studying the Archangel Michael duo to a funny thing that happened to me, which I do not mind sharing.
I meditated on angels but nothing specific, because I wanted to study and know further about them. At first I got drawn to Gabriel, when I was doing my research, however when I started writting down something for him, the name Michael came, instead of Gabriel. As if I blanked out while writting the name and it got switched.
I took that has a sign, so the next day I went to a store that sells a lot of things, from candles and candles wiht a magick purpose, to house things. I found a statue of Michael, and my face just lit up. Something I can not explain, I simply got happy about seeing his statue there.
I bought it and some incense as well, took it home and created a little altar for him. The very first time I meditated on him I felt something I have not felt in a very long time, I felt like I wasn't alone and that I was actually protected. The atmosphere was one of love, protection, care.
Agiel, I had a similar experience with my guardian angel, so perhaps Michael is your guardian. I didn't go looking for mine I was simply drawn to his name by a feeling of protection and care. And I always feel better when I'm in his presence. Its a nice feeling!
Archangel Zerachiel (or selaphiel) is one of my spirit guides. He's my primary guide. I speak to him a lot, and while he does retain that whole ethereal sophistication, I've gotten to know him better and he's pretty cool. He feels like he carries a lot of weight on his shoulders (and boy does he) and he takes every bad thing to happen to a child as a personal failure.
Despite being an archangel he indulges in me and is one of my best friends.
Its a really neat experience and more than I ever expected
