Mary Jane Miller highlights a collection of Byzantine style icons inspired by San Miguel Allende’s patron saint, Archangel Michael. Angel Iconography, Celestial creatures are spiritual beings without physical bodies that are agents, or messengers of God. They are the unseen designer of creation.
Even though we may not be able to validate that angels exist, we can and should praise the mystery of things we cannot see. It encourages the possibility that these entities bring more goodness into the world. I have often been asked, “Does everyone have a guardian angel?” I cannot say that I would know the answer, yet I do believe there are spirits all around. Some say they guard and/or protect our souls. Perhaps angels are more involved than we think in communicating truths. Maybe they are inspired messages come from some other supernatural dimension. Surely it is comforting to imagine each of us is protected and encouraged by some unknown benevolent force that permeates creation.
Some may call angels energy, intuition, grace, physic ability, or divine wisdom, but whatever the name, angles may be reminding us in powerful ways that we are never alone. Celestial creatures, may not be able to prevent our crashing into disastrous situations or manipulate the physical world so to avoid suffering. Few will deny there are amazing circumstances that present themselves completely by surprise. Having an image of an angelic creature around your home may inspire thoughts of some sovereign purpose that is unfolding. It is yours in the form of instruction, knowledge ,or insight as mysterious spiritual beings.
Our lives are designed to allow conscious access to our “Angelic” self, to accept it and become it in essence. In this way we finally experience true spiritual contention with something greater than our self and one another.
