Create An Angel Altar
To celebrate your connection to angels on a daily basis…why not create
an angel altar? This altar can be a beautiful reminder of the loving,
healing presence of the angels of light in your life.
Now when I say to create an altar for the angels, this is not to
worship the angels. This is only to celebrate them. There are many
types of spiritual altars you can create. Denise Linn has an excellent
book about altars called Altars: Bringing Sacred Shrines into Your Everyday Life.
I have to admit that I was simply stunned by the cover of this book
because the angel on the cover of the book looks so much like the angel
on my very own angel altar!
Your altar will celebrate your daily connection to angels and
connecting with your altar reminds you to “touch in” with this
connection all the time. When you see an object that has meaning to
you: it reminds you of that person or place or circumstance. So
naturally creating an angel altar will encourage you to have a closer
connection with your angels.
Place anything you like on your angel altar: figurines of angels, angel
tea lights, books about angels and pictures of the angels. Add your own
personal items that have meaning to you about the angels such as people
you would like the angels to watch over or your own letters to the
angels or things from nature that remind you somehow of the angels.
Have you thought of creating an angel altar? How do you see angels in your daily life? Where could you put an angel altar?

Blessings of Oneness Realized in All of Life- during my volunteer work with 11th Hour hospice patients, I witnessed many extrodinary things beyond the veil of this earthy realm. I will give one angelic descriptive reference. A man who had lived a good life crossed over while I was administering to him. I read Jonathan Livingston Seagull aloud but quietly, I played meditation music with verbal requests for angelic assistance and silently read certain biblical passages since this person was Christian. About two hours before he left his body, I witnessed two Angels of Light float into the hospital room at the head of his hospital bed and began administering to him and during this whole time They let me See them and that They were there to further assist this person in every way. It was/is such a fine experience that I know how we are protected, influenced positively and given intuitive notions and Angelic Ideas that will always benefit us if we choose to act on those. I know that I have been able to call on Angels and to send them to those who are really in dire need of angelic assistance. It seems to me that it is always important (not to "will" or "force") to just spiritually know (because it is Truth) to always think and manifest without really using intention or mind, but more like using Heart to See the Light Divine (it may be pure white and it man have a golden opalescent glow) I mean to See this Light everywhere an Angel has been and especially where each Angel usually abides---when They leave that area I believe it is important to See that that area is filled with divine Light that will remain there until the Angel returns. It will be that special Light for that particular Angel and nothing else can occupy that space except the Light Divine until the return of that Angel. When requesting angelic assistance, even if we cannot See this, we should know that it is actually happening. We should pray for angelic assistance for thos children in Darfur in the Sudam and the Congo and anywhere else by forgiving the afflicted person for anything they might have done or left undone in this life or in any other life. This type of forgiveness is also a Heartfelt energizing, not really a mental williing of anything. It is achieved through a union of Heart and Mind.

Yes Dartz. i think it is worth sharing. i would gladly share this article also to those who love angels. and it may be a good idea for them to create an angel altar. my best friend loves angels and i think this is a great idea for her.

Sounds like something worth trying out, I'm not much of an angel person but I know a handful of people that are. I'll forward this article to them.

Well Melvin, creating an altar does not have to be expensive. and you can always make it easy to do it. just make it simple. right? for me, an altar does not have to be that big, you can give a little space for it. just like the altar i have at home, but not an angel altar. we made an altar at the top of the cabinet for our component. and we did not spend too much money for it. the simple the better.

Creating and angel altar seems to be a very good idea. But I think it would be hard to because of the space that it eats up as well as it maybe expensive and many people could not afford it. Besides why not just create an altar like the one in church rather than an angel altar? I think the former is better.

that is nice Melvin. although i do not have an angel altar and books, i still collect angel figurines because i always feel safe and every time i look at my angel figurines collection, i can feel that they are real and are watching over me. they are also very pleasing to the eyes which makes me look at them more.=)

I have an angel at my room. But not an altar though. I always feel relaxed upon looking at the angel displays on my room and how they largely make me relaxed. I do also have a book about angels. I love reading about angels and how they become angels. It's interesting to see the process.

Wow, that is a great story Tia. You said that angels know when you need help. and i agree with you. that is very true. just like what you have experienced in your story, those people knew that you needed help. and i think that they are human angels which God has sent to you.

Hi Julian. you mentioned it right. when we create an alter in our home, office, etc, we are just going to leave it there. but when we create one in our mind and feelings, we will always have them in our lives. i am not speaking literally but i really agree with you that we should create them within ourselves.

this is a great idea. i never tried creating an altar for angels because i thought that if you do that, you will worship them too. but i think that if we create an alter for them, we are already worshiping them. it is true that we are just celebrating and letting our angels know that we do recognize them and i think it is also a way for us to thank them.
