Guardian Angels

The concept of a guardian angel is extremely old. In Zoroastrianism, guardian angels were called fravashis. Before Christianity, the Romans had protective guardians. Men had a genius and women a juno. Jesus Christ confirmed the existence of guardian angels when he said: "Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 18:10) Origin, an early Christian theologian, believed that everyone has both a good and evil angel. The good angel guides and protects the person and the evil angel tempts him or her. St. Thomas Aquinas believed everyone has a guardian angel.

In Catholic belief every person receives a guardian angel at birth to look after and guide them through life. On October 2nd, every year, Catholics have a feast day to celebrate guardian angels.

In the Jewish Talmud, it is said that every Jew has 11,000 guardian angels.

Muslims have four guardian angels, known as Hafaza. Two watch over their charges during the day, while the other too look after the night. These four angels are kept busy writing down their charge’s good and bad deeds. These records will be used to assess each person on Judgment Day.

It is important to communicate with your guardian angel in good times as well as bad. Your guardian angel will provide you with peace of mind in times of sorrow and misfortune and will fill you with good ideas, positivity and a desire to do good in the happy times.
