“Adoption—Your Guardian Angel and You!”

“When I was a child I saw an angel hovering over me. She had a kindhearted, sympathetic expression. I imagined her as my friend and made believe that she was my mythical sister. She was a beautiful girl with a sparkling smile. Her intrinsic nature was exhilarating and her presence stirred a sudden euphoric emotional high. Positive thoughts lingered in my heart and mind. Everything that transpired before the dawn lingered in my imagination.” —Judith Land, Author and adoptee

The idea of Guardian Angels is a universal belief that transcends time and culture. Every culture has within it the concept of a Guardian Spirit who is there to guide us. Find a quiet place for contemplation and tune in to the transcendental signs and signals to hear what your Guardian Angel is telling you. 

Do you have the goal of making an internal connection to a spiritual being that exists solely to help you find your way, your path, your true will, the purpose of your plan and your place in it? Your whole life is simply a search for what it is you are supposed to do in this life, and do it to the best of your ability. Should you search for your birth family and write a book about the inexplicable reasons for the mysterious deviation in your life’s trajectory? Guardian angels exist to patiently guide you every day through the divine plan that you embody. If you follow the path God has provided for you, you will find real happiness, peace, and freedom, the universal goals of life. For as long as human beings have been recording their thoughts, dreams, and ideas on stone, wood, and paper, there have been accounts of guardian angels. Across many different cultures, geographic regions and religions, accepted views of this ethereal mystical phenomenon are remarkably similar, and show us examples of divine intervention at moments of danger.

There are many stories from the Bible, and anecdotes from individuals who believe these spiritual beings have affected their lives. Some believers insist that everyone has a spiritual being assigned to assist them here on Earth to make our lives run more smoothly. Many people have offered their opinions on how to enlist their help in the form of an inspiring thought to spur us into action; lend us super-human strength in an emergency; give us the endurance to survive life-threatening events; and help us make critical choices during pivotal events. Believers insist there are many instances assigned to luck, providence, coincidence, or even a miracle, that have the touch of a hand of light behind it.

Our spiritual assistant is always there during good times and bad, as we learn to work things out for ourselves. They provide loving support and sympathy during emotional crisis, inspire us by giving us hope and encouragement when we are feeling all alone, and celebrate our positive accomplishments. They offer sympathy and comfort following the tragic loss of a loved one. They serve to remind us that God created the sky, the oceans, heaven and earth, and all the plants and animals that dwell upon it. When we feel their presence we feel self-assured and we are not afraid.

    What a wonderful blog post! I also saw an angel as a child. I thought she was the tooth fairy. Today, I know she was my guardian or guiding angel. I was adopted into an abusive home and that spirit saved me for much better things as an adult. The journey of searching for ourselves is multi-faceted, and fraught with heartache. However, I would never change a thing. Why should I? I am clearly not the one in charge. Thank you Judith for the sentiment and message.

      Vickilynnb, May the peace of the Lord always be with you. Learning to be happy because an experience is over is always preferable to feeling bad because of something unpleasant that happened in the past. I am glad knowing that things are better for you now. Life is about moving forward, focusing on the future, and aiming for magic moments and glorious endings. The journey of searching for ourselves is difficult for many adoptees, especially for those who feel trapped, confused and uncertain how to relieve the tension. Finding ourselves magnifies the positive effects of serendipitous experiences and even the smallest of blessings we receive. With maturity comes wisdom and experience, increased understanding and forgiveness of others. These are the things that bring us inner peace. Belief in guardian angels can be traced throughout all antiquity when the idea developed that angels are the intermediaries between God and man. It is widely believed in many religions that everyone has a heavenly representative who serves to protect the person God assigns them to guard, and prays to God on that person’s behalf during their life, and at death, and leads the soul into the afterlife. I wish you all the best. Thanks for stopping by. Judith
