Is it possible to hear voices of angels. If so, how we can we hear angels?
Some may want to hear angels, while others wonder if we can hear angels at all. In this short article, we'll attempt to answer both questions.
Throughout history, various religions have taught that angels can be perceived by the five senses. Such an experience of perceiving angels is known as "angelophany."
Appearances of angels to mankind has been described in many different ways. So hearing angels is really only one way which angels may be experienced.
The meaning of the word "angel" is "messenger." In the Bible, an angel simply denotes a person who brings a message, whether with, or without a physical form. It is no surprise then, that for many centuries, the description of angels has varied and even been debated by religions. Angels have been seen within dreams and visions, often described as looking human in appearance. Sometimes angels have been described being winged, but often, this was simply a way to insure we understand that the messenger was from a higher place, namely spirit.
Angels, or spirit messengers, speak to us through thoughts. Often, we do not recognize their thoughts, for we deem them to be from ourselves. Within every person occurs a wonderful thing: higher messages of truth are resonating within the heart (or center) of one's being. Sometimes, we do not recognize this inner voice, but choose to ignore it by following what our head is telling us is going on outside of ourselves.
To hear angels better, or if you wonder, "How can I hear angels?" you must first learn to meditate which means to quiet the mind. Our mind races with thoughts of daily activities, being very busy. Meditation allows a person to relax, calm down and work to silence the mundane thoughts that permeate our cranium. With practice, relaxation of the mind and body can be achieved. By meditating, we disconnect from receiving information externally. This is the state one wants to get to in order to listen to the deepest part of our being, Spirit.
As all of us are living lives accompanied by spirits, it is not a matter of if we can hear, but more a matter of what will we hear from such messengers. Spirits watch over our lives and provide guidance and direction, much like a control tower does to an airplane. Do you want to receive the message? Allow me to note that fear will not allow one to open up to the messages coming from spirits. Fear is always false, linked to the past and comes from focusing our lives on external things. By quieting the mind, we should somewhat be silencing any fears. Fear must be overcome to be able to listen better internally.
Angels, being enlightened spirit messengers, will share thoughts of truth expressed with feelings of love, joy and peace. So there is nothing to fear. In addition to sharing messages that enable us to understand truth, one may hear angels expressing a direction for his or her life. Often, our greatest desires are really just our life plan being revealed, or more likely reiterated to us, in order to help us stay the course. One might say that to hear angels brings enlightenment - a revealing of what the individual needs to know. And knowing is better than believing, for knowledge is powerful.
Be encouraged that you can hear angels. It's not something that's impossible, for you are hearing them already. One simply needs to discern the voice of spirits from the thoughts we create on our own. The path to knowledge (and to hear angels) is never outside of one's self, but always found within.
