Calling All Angels
The more we call upon the angels, the more they can come to our assistance. Here are some ways to call the angels in.
Angels want to surround us, and they greatly desire to give us help. Our joy brings them enormous pleasure. Yet, they cannot help us unless we ask. A universal law that binds angels says, "No angel shall interfere with a human's life unless asked, with the sole exception of a life-threatening emergency. An angel will not make decisions for a human, but-when asked-an angel may offer advice and different ways of looking at the given situation."
So an angel may nudge you or encourage you, and an angel may create a miraculous coincidence for you. However, an angel cannot help you unless you choose to accept the help, because you have free will.
To ask for angelic assistance, you needn't conduct a formal invocation ceremony. God and the angels aren't complicated, due to their true nature of pure and simple love. Only our lower-self ego believes that spirituality is necessarily complicated, because it cannot believe that something so powerful and great could be accessible to everyone instantly. Yet, it's true.
The angels hear the prayers of your heart, and just by your mental cry for help, they flock to your side. You can also consciously ask for more angels to surround you or your loved one. Parents can ask for angelic baby-sitters to guide and protect their children throughout the day. If a loved one is traveling, ask Raphael and the angels to watch over the journey. Ask the angels to help your friends who are in need of comfort and direction.
Some ways to call upon the angels include:
Writing a letter to the angels. Pour out your heart when discussing your confusions, hurts, and anxieties. Hold nothing back, so that the angels can help every part of you and your situation.
Visualizing. Call it your inner eye, your imagination, or your third eye-the term doesn't matter. Visualizing angels is a powerful way to call them to your side. See the angels flying in circles around you or your loved ones. See powerful angels thronged by your side. See the room you are in crowded with thousands of angels. These visualizations are angelic invocations that create your reality.
Angels are glowing with the light of love, so they don't have a physical form. However, angels can take on a physical appearance by projecting a mental image to us, if this will help us. So if you visualize cherubs, large glowing beings, or a beautifully dressed angelic woman, the angels will take on this form to help you recognize them.
Mentally calling upon angels. Think, Angels, please help me, and they are with you instantly. If you are sincere in your call, the angels hear your mental cry for assistance. You can word your request as an affirmation, such as "I have hundreds of angels surrounding me now," or as a petitional prayer: "Angels, I am in pain and need your help now." You can ask God to send you angels, or you can call the angels directly.
Speaking to angels aloud. You can verbalize your request, and sometimes we do this unconsciously, such as when we say, "Oh, God" during distress. You might find that spending time alone in a quiet setting, especially outdoors in nature, is a wonderful opportunity to have a verbal conversation with the angels.

Angels - A Spiritual Perspective
Since times immemorial the concept of angels has fascinated mankind. Angels appear in the religious, mythological and other literature across all cultures. They are invariably depicted with wings. Many people pray to angels. We conducted spiritual research on various aspects of angels with the help of extrasensory perception (ESP) or sixth sense. Through our findings using spiritual research methodology, this article demystifies the topic of angels and offers fresh insight into them.

Angels - How they got their Wings
How did they get their halos and their wings?
And what are they really? Gods or men?
Beato Angelico, San Marco Museum, Florence -- Click the picture for a larger view
George Bernard Shaw made the observation that "in heaven an angel is nobody in particular", but there is nothing commonplace about this description of angels from the Bible's book of Ezekiel:
"They had the likeness of a man.
And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.
And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass ... As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle."
With angels like that, it is easy to see why they have caused so much controversy over the centuries.

Are angels male or female or both? Eternal or mortal? Messengers from God or shapers of destiny?
What do the Scriptures tell us about them? Are they messengers from Heaven? What do they look like? Do they continue to guide and help us today? And what happened to the "fallen angels"?
In an attempt to resolve these and other questions regarding the nature of angels this A&E program (part of the Mysteries of the Bible series) looks to a variety of sources for answers: the Bible, the Apocrypha, Dante's Divine Comedy - even Phoenician drawings.
The material is organized into five acts, with titles like "Celestial Guardians" and "Earthly Spirits". While the essence of angels isn't ultimately resolved in this program, viewers do get an eyeful of some of the more famous visions of angels by artists, including da Vinci, Raphael, and Botticelli.
Duration: 45 minutes.
For me it makes no sense to ask are angels eternal or mortal. They are obviously eternal beings. We are eternal souls. We are just in a body form at the moment trying to keep soul and body together while living on the earth ...

Angels in History and Cultures
They are the link between heaven and earth: Who are the angels, where do they come from and what is their purpose and meaning? Why is it that now more people than ever before are reporting angelic experiences?
This documentary is an exploration of the enduring mythic and symbolic presence of angels in human history for more than three thousand years. Further an exploration of their influence on humankind and society both in the past and in modern times. Includes interviews and information about peoples personal experience with angels, and visits 'New Age' seminars where meditations leads seekers to their guardian angels.
It's similar to the movie 'Entertaining Angels Unawares' - but this docu is probably the original, an Opus Television production for S4C.

Angels in Dream, Myth, Literature and History
Ellen G White, in "Who Are the Angels?" wrote:
"The connection of the visible with the invisible world, the ministration of angels of God, and the agency of evil spirits, are plainly revealed in the Scriptures, and inseparably interwoven with human history. There is a growing tendency to disbelief in the existence of evil spirits, while the holy angels that 'minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation.' (Hebrews 1:14) are regarded by many as spirits of the dead. But the Scriptures not only teach the existence of angels, both good and evil, but present unquestionable proof that these are not disembodied spirits of dead men."
Before the Creation of Man, angels were in existence; for when the foundations of the Earth were laid, "the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy." After the Fall of Man, Angels were sent to guard the Tree of Life, and this before a human being had died. Angels are by nature superior to Humankind. The psalmist had said the Man was made "a little lower than the angels."

Angel of the Thames
Naturally for earlier sightings we have to rely on sometimes unreliable written accounts. As we move into the photographic age we inevitably see more concrete evidence of the Angel sightings.
This particular etching is charming for its very literal interpretation of an angel. It is clear that the artist has represented what he has read about the incident in his own way.
Among the early photographs is this rather poor shot taken shortly after the outbreak of the Great War in 1914. Many people had turned up near Southwark docks after a reported sighting.
Why is the evidence being kept back? I have seen the footage and in my opinion it is the best documentation yet.
