These are the Angels as I know them.
I only know Angels through spoken word, tapes, DVD's then video, cards, dubious personal experience and over the last four years, through Grimoire.
This Michael, prayer/meditation/invocation, is pretty indicative of what was available as I began to interact more with online media. I had been pretty Ludite until 2014, aside from a stint in the mid '90's. Not just refraining from online, I am talking no T.V. also. It was a little overwhelming, the Spirituality marketing and media campaigns were well underway, at this stage. Doreen Virtue was, well, in retrospect, High Priestess reigning over the SEO and Franchise and Copyright models.
Within my earliest esoteric, still have literature. I can't find anything pre 1988, there exists no Angels.
Within the people I know, I met an Angel twice in 3d in 1996.
He was a healer and he sniffed, with his nose, illness. His eyes were very sensitive, too sensitive to look at illness, maybe, so he sniffed.
I never doubted he was an Angel or that he could heal. I have seen them occasionally since. Angels in crowds. If I had not met the first one, up close, in person, I do not think I would ever notice another, in a crowd.
But once you have met one, you cannot mistake an Angel.
So, I had met an Angel and had various experiences around Angel's for a few years. That was nothing to the bombardment that hit me when I came online.
My pre online world life was all chakra and meditation, distance healing, herbalism, leaning into homeopathy, yoga, health food, women's sport, shadow work and affirmations.
This was being backed up by some not cool enough distance varsity studies. which required an online presence (mid '90's) And the internet and my onlineness, grew from there.
As did Angel's. Pretty soon the internet, it has only taken around 25 years, took over, almost everywhere, so too Angels.
Before I knew it Angels were everywhere, not just online, but in stores and in meditation classes. Not the 3d ones I had met, but the imagery artistic, flaming sword and Gods messengers ones.
And I who am easily led and can channel whatever it is that Spirit am, or is supposed to be was pulled into that world also.
And it is strange, the Angels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, that I have played with in the last seven years, have been incredibly strong forces, arriving through the crown chakra upon asking. Not with any need for prayer, just a breath out and an asking, and they have always felt damn good and worked through me very clearly, yet, I am very aware, if I had not of come online, I would not of been or be playing with them at all.
