The universe that we all thrive in has been created in perfect balance. A place that is filled with blessings also has dangers lurking around everywhere. A grizzly bear could instantly turn a fun camping trip in the woods into a nightmarish memory. Or an evening at the amusement park could be ruined by a roller coaster ride disaster! All things considered, it’s safe to say that we all are extremely vulnerable creatures, constantly in need of protection and guidance. The common belief is that, like all mothers, God cares about His children the most, which is why He has appointed certain celestial beings which are constantly looking out for us and protecting us from harm – The Guardian Angels.
If you think about it, the idea of a magnificently glorious being keeping you out of harm’s way is extremely comforting. In the Holy Bible, subtle mentions of these beings have been made on many occasions, though the words “Guardian Angels” have never been used. Apart from that, one often comes across accounts of people (especially children) being miraculously saved from oncoming disasters, which further strengthens the belief of people in these divine bodyguards. But, is everything we hear about Guardian Angels actually true? In this article, I will discuss the common myths and legends about Guardian Angels and let you decide for yourself!
Legends about Guardian Angels
There are many legends associated with the existence of Guardian Angels and the purpose for which they have been put on Earth. Read on as I discuss some of them below.
Guardian Angels stay with us from birth till death
There is a common belief that as soon as a mother conceives a child, Guardian Angels are appointed for his or her protection and they then stick around for as long as that child lives. These angels are appointed by God Himself to look after us so that we stay out of harm’s way and make better decisions to lead a comfortable life. Saint Thomas Aquinas claimed that: “from the very moment of his birth, man has an angel guardian appointed to him” (Summa Theologica, I, 113, 5), which is an indication that all individuals, including you and me, have an angel watching over us at times even we forget to take care of ourselves.
Guardian Angels actually communicate with us
There are disagreements about whether or not Guardian Angels communicate with us directly, but logic tells that there must be some form of contact which prompts us to act in a certain way in order to protect ourselves. Hence, it is commonly believed that Guardian Angels communicate with us through thoughts, images, and, on rare occasions, by actually speaking with words (by taking on a physical appearance). It is believed that when we get second thoughts or feel doubtful about a risky situation, it is our Guardian Angel trying to plant thoughts to keep us safe.
You were chosen by your Guardian Angel
Many people believe that God appointed Guardian Angels for our protection, but there are some with the opinion that every person was chosen by their Guardian Angel. This implies that God gave them the chance to pick whoever they wanted to look after, which makes the idea of having a divine guardian so much more pleasing. Couldn’t this be the reason why Guardian Angels are so devoted towards their duty and have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to protecting their human? It most certainly could.
Guardian Angels are for everyone
Guardian Angels have not just been made to protect and assist Christians – Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, those belonging to other religions, and even atheists, have Guardian Angels protecting them at all times. This makes Guardian Angels non-denominational – they help and guide people to safety and the right path, regardless of their religion and beliefs.
Some Common Myths about Guardian Angels
Although we can’t say for sure whether Guardian Angels exist or not – this depends on your religious beliefs – there are certain myths that we often hear about them. Amongst all of them, these are the most popular ones:
MYTH: You become a Guardian Angel once you die
Many people believe that pious and/or those who lead a good life become Guardian Angels after they die. Children who lose their parents or siblings at a young age are often comforted by this thought. But, according to logic, it is impossible for human souls to do that as Angels are separate beings created by God to execute His command and become a part of His divine army, whereas humans, after they die, enjoy a deep slumber in the divine gardens or answer for the crimes which they indulged in during their time on Earth. Therefore, the opinion that humans can turn into Angels becomes invalid, however much anyone wants it to be true.
MYTH: Guardian Angels have halos & two wings
When we think of Angels, we picture an image of a beautiful humanoid being with a halo (or a “nimbus”) on top of their heads and a pair of glorious wings. In truth, there is no Biblical proof of any Angel having halos. The idea of halos or nimbuses was only implanted by artists who wanted a way to portray angels as pure and safe from all forms of evil. Moreover, there is no concept of a pair of wings, although according to the description of one group of Angels, some have been described to have six wings. But, those aren’t related, in any way, to Guardian Angels.
MYTH: You have to worship your Guardian Angels
Another common myth regarding Guardian Angels is that in order to get their help, you need to worship them directly. This opinion is invalid.Why? Because of the fact that all angels serve God and obey only His command. They, thus, do not act on the prayers which they receive from humans directly. All power belongs to God and we should only ever ask Him for help, not our Guardian Angels.

It goes without saying that belief in the supernatural is something which isn’t very common these days. But those who believe let their thoughts guide them every single day. One such belief which Christianity and a few other religions teach is that of the existence of Guardian Angels – Divine beings sent on Earth to protect, guide, and make the lives of human beings better. However, even the believers have some misconceptions about the actual role which Guardian Angels play in our day-to-day lives. In this blog post, I will tell you everything you need to know about how these magnificent creatures affect our worldly journey. And if you’d like to understand and get closer to your Guardian Angel, I invite you to attend my event “Guardian Angel Myths, Legends & Personal Messages by Luci McMonagle” on September 13th.

The 3 Roles Played by Every Guardian Angel
The universe has everything planned out for every being but at times, these Angels, by the will of God, interfere to change the course of action. We avoid injuries and emotional and financial losses on a daily basis, both consciously and unconsciously. Most of the time, the latter is the case and Guardian Angels are usually behind this. We don’t even realize this but Guardian Angels impact our lives on significant levels by playing three roles. But, which ones? Let’s find out!
As the name suggests, the main purpose of Guardian Angels is to “guard” or protect. This protection may be offered in a number of ways but for now, I just want to focus on the physical aspects. Human beings are extremely vulnerable – so vulnerable that even a little bump on the head can end our lives immediately. The thought is scary and puts everything into perspective. For that very purpose, God created Guardian Angels to keep us from harm’s way. How is it that your children stay safe every time they leave home to go to school? How come your grandparents keep their balance while going up and down flights of stairs? How come you never crash when you are driving really fast on the highway? The simple answer is that we are saved most of the time by Guardian Angels!
This is one of the primary duties of Guardian Angels. They either protect us by taking a physical shape and interfering or by whispering thoughts that divert us towards the safer path, one where the threat doesn’t exist. In any case, it’s really beautiful and comforting to think that there is someone out there who deeply cares for us and keeps us safe.
Apart from physically protecting us from harm, Guardian Angels also play the role of guides in our lives. Every once in a while, we feel lost and confused, so much that we start questioning our very existence and the life we’ve lived so far. In this situation, it becomes difficult to make the important decisions in life – ones that could either make or break everything, like proposing to your significant other, making a risky business decision, choosing what career to pursue, etc. Because of the frustration, things stop making sense. In this case, Guardian Angels show us the correct path and clear all those confusions and doubts. They either guide us by implanting positive thoughts in our minds or take physical forms to come to our aid (despite being purely spiritual beings).
Guardian Angels don’t just guide us with everyday decision-making. At times, when we are thinking evil thoughts, the Angels (who want you to do the right thing, the thing that’s best for you) whisper things that stop evil thinking. That’s because they are programmed that way – the word “evil” doesn’t exist in their dictionary so they try their best to stop you from taking the wrong path.
Guardian Angels want what’s best for us. That’s their eternal purpose and that’s the most important role they have to play. At times, Guardian Angels are unable to protect us because of God’s will and the way the universe has planned events out. For this reason, Guardian Angels are constantly praying for us. If we have been good in our lives, they call out to God and ask Him for our protection and overall betterment. And the beautiful thing is that their prayers are extremely effective and carry weight in the eyes of God. So you should consider yourself lucky because a divine being, who you have never formally met, is your well-wisher and wants you to achieve happiness and success in life.
Remember that Guardian Angels are God’s creations. And every creation has certain limitations. It’s true that Angels have far superior powers than the souls of human beings but they too turn towards God to seek help.
An Important Thing to Remember…
People often question the existence of Guardian Angels by saying things like, “If Guardian Angels exist, then why do we get hurt, make bad decisions, and feel lost all the time?” The answer to these questions is straightforward – Guardian Angels do all they can to fulfill their duties but, ultimately, we are the ones who have to make the final decision. Guardian Angels might try to guide you to the correct path but the ultimate decision lies in your own hands! For example, a person who got injured on a hiking trip must have experienced bad feelings before they left the house. These were likely coming from their Guardian Angels but they chose to ignore them. That is on the individual entirely.
In the end, I would like to advise everyone to listen to their 6th sense or gut feelings more often. At times, these feelings might be coming from your Guardian Angels trying to set your path straight and eliminate dangers from your life. In order to do that, you have got to have a little faith. And to build faith, you’ve got to live your life the way you were meant to – by tackling things as they come along and believing in a higher power.

Physically, humans are meant to have a pair of eyes, which enables them to see the beauty of the universe in all its glory. However, the extent of this vision is limited, and certain phenomena and entities remain hidden from the naked eye, mostly for the best. The invisible realm, the spiritual realm, has magnificent creatures lurking about that exceed our imaginations. They cannot be seen by ordinary vision, and can only be felt by some people who have been blessed with special gifts. An example of such creatures is your guardian angel – A glorious being, sent on Earth to protect and guide you throughout your life! A person’s guardian angel stays with them from birth till death. Their purpose is to guide and direct us away from harm and towards success and safety. They can’t be seen and we are not 100% sure of what they look like, however, it is possible to communicate with them. In fact, and this may come as a surprise, your guardian angel tries to contact you every single day!
As a medium, I possess the gift to cross the barrier and get in contact with beings in the spiritual realm. I use this gift to contact with guardian angels and help them establish a connection with their humans. If you’d like to learn what your guardian angel has to say about you, then I invite you to try my Channeled LOVE Letter Directly From Your Guardian Angel program.
Meanwhile, in this article, I will share with you a few messages that we all receive from our guardian angels on almost a daily basis, but tend to ignore because of our busy lives or limited perspective. By getting to know what signs to look for and how to interpret them, you’d be able to make far better decisions in life and heed the advice of your divine partner. So, without any further ado, let’s get right to it:
Finding Coins in Unusual Places
A coin is one of those common objects that can be found lying around in a home. You can find them in the spaces between your sofa cushions, beneath your bed, and your drawers. However, at times, we tend to find them in the weirdest of places, like under our pillows. While I certainly don’t believe in the tooth fairy, I do have a firm belief in the existence of guardian angels!
If you recently found a coin in a highly unusual place, chances are that it was left by your guardian angel. What are coins, really? A medium of exchange which you can use to buy goods that sustain you and make your life worth living. Therefore, this mystery coin that you just found could be your guardian angel trying to express their support and reassuring you that no matter what, they will always have your back.
Noticing Shapes in the Clouds
Every single person on this planet has at least once looked up in the sky and tried to identify shapes in the clouds. While seeming like a fun or even a childish activity, there could very well be a deep meaning hidden behind all of this. Angels are incredibly strong beings. They can’t be physically seen or touched, however, they still have the power to manipulate matter, including clouds. They usually communicate this way to inform us about
some exciting news in advance.
The next time you look up in the sky and notice the clouds forming the shape of a specific object, try to remember it, wait for a few days, and see what happens. For example, if you notice the shape of an airplane, ship, or a cloud, see if you end up planning an unexpected vacation a few days later.
Finding a White Feather
One of the most common ways in which angels like to communicate with humans is by leaving white feathers lying around their houses(usually on the door steps, side tables, and a few other places.) But, what does a white feather really mean? If you’ve recently found one, then you should rest easy because it actually represents a sign of hope, strong faith and protection, and reassurance. It’s like a friendly pat on the back or a shoulder to lay your head on.
These mysterious white feathers are most commonly found by people who experience the loss of loved ones. According to one famous interpretation, it is a reassurance that the loved one(s) they’ve lost are happy, safe, and in a better place.
Receiving Unexpected Favors
From time to time, we all tend to experience lows in our lives. This could be anything, ranging from something as simple as finding out that your favorite restaurant has closed to something as serious as losing thousands of dollars on a bad investment. Whatever the situation, at times, we tend to find the solutions to those problems in the most unexpected of ways.
Have you ever received unexpected favors from the universe? For example, going through a financial crisis and finding out that you have won the lottery. Or losing your job and bagging another, higher paying, and much more reasonable one only a week later. Angels rarely interrupt the course of the world, but when they do, they do it in such a way that it changes our lives on a large scale. So, if you have experienced something similar, then there is a very good chance that it was a gift from your guardian angel!
Guardian angels interact with us in many different ways. However, to interpret their messages on a deeper level, you need certain gifts and abilities.
