Do you believe in guardian angels?

MNHQ have commented on this thread. Read here.

I have an 2mo DD and recently I have been finding white feathers in her cot, pram, Moses basket ect. I mentioned it to my mum and she suggested it could be an angel, I'm a little sceptical but I must admit it is a little bit strange.

So do you believe and have you had any experience of this?

Whilst I absoloutly believe in there being more than we can see with the naked eye, I would first look to a more realistic reason for their being feathers everywhere such as a feather pillow losing it's stuffing, or living by the sea so lots of seagulls etc!

I find feathers everywhere. We have a lot of birds nesting under our eaves and in the garden just now.

I don't have feather pillows/duvet ect and i have hens and nesting house martins but these feathers are unlike any I've seen before they are perfectly white and formed. I find one every 2/3 days the last on was yesterday and it was inside DD's grow bag so highly unlikely it floated in through the window...

I don't but I think of all the things that could be possible it is the loveliest idea smile and I really get why people want it.

Yes I do. I don't believe they show their presence with feather though. Although it's possible. We each have our own guardian angel watching over us.

Yes i do believe in feathers, they are fluffy white feathers, or a single feather on its own. Ever sice i lost my mum suddenly i get random feathers on and off when special things go on. But also when we lost our dog after 14 years after we got back from the vets after we had him pass there was a white feather on his rug there was no windows open.

I do see them as a sign from a loved one to say they are around/thinking of you.

Yes. I believe in guardian angels. Hope you are finding some comfort from all the feathers x

From the 91st Psalm.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Of course there are guardian angels.

Jesus said "see that you never despise any of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in heaven are continually in the presence of my Father in heaven" Matthew 18:10

I do believe in angels in the Christian sense but I don't believe that they leave feathers. I think that they are higher spiritual beings who exalt God and have specific missions.

YES. I absolutely believe - Without any doubts whatsoever, and I too have found feathers everywhere smile
May I just be so bold to thank you for asking on here, as in this day in age there are thousands of people who will still not ask for fear of being ridiculed.

When I was younger, I thought they were mythical, make believe imaginary creatures, on a par with the tooth fairy, pixies and unicorns. I thought that everyone else thought that, too. But I completely believe that everybody has a guardian angel, whether you have faith or not. If in danger, or fearful, have a word with your guardian angel, or at any other time, for that matter. x

misfitless, YES. I have had my life saved by mine, and I am extremely grateful. You make good points.
I also speak to my child's gaurdian angel, and as part of my energy healing work I forged relationships with many angels, including conversing with my client's angels.
They are real. They love to be spoken to. They love leaving quirky little signs, and not just feathers. All you have to do is ask. Then listen. and observe.

No.

I believe everyone has a guardian angel.

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Mon 19-May-14 21:33:55

Yes I do. I am perfectly aware that it may just be something I believe as a coping method, rather than something real - but I definitely do.

I have believed in it since the day, a few months after my dad had passed away, when I was crying my eyes out & incredibly stressed that my then 6 year old DS1 was in trouble at school again. I went outside and a pure white feather was on the front doormat. In an enclosed porch. In mid winter.

I still find white feathers now, but always when I am stressed or upset about something - otherwise never. I have found them in odd places (like INSIDE the car!).

I may be mad, but as stressed as I am when I find one, it always calms me down & makes me smile. So, whether there is anything in it or not, it helps smile.

The guardian angels that belong to the asylum seekers who spend their time squashed and dying, must be pretty poor at their jobs sad perhaps they're just trainee guardian angels which begs the question, are they suffering from the decline in educational standards that this country is.

Are not feathers a choking hazard? You need to find out where they are really coming from.

I also second what hiddenhome said.

TheOneAndOnlyAlpha Sat 31-May-14 20:42:44

No. It's a lovely idea. But no. I find feathers too, and they come from our one feather cushion. They get everywhere.

As Hidden says, if they did exist then they are doing a pretty piss poor job at watching over those who really need them.

IndigoBarbie Sun 01-Jun-14 10:23:01

Yes, it can be a touchy and harrowing subject regarding those who die and those who don't and those who are 'saved' and those who are not and suffer tragic life events.
I wouldn't say I have always believed in angels, but years ago I started speaking to mine and time after time the proof has been there. I would even recommend starting a dialogue with yours and just see what happens.
The feathers thing is just a way of communicating their presence, until you can hear them or see them (if that is your wish) and accept that they are real.

Misfitless Sun 01-Jun-14 11:23:20

This sounds fascinating, Indigo. Can you share some experiences, or is it all too private?

Sorry for being so nosy, completely understand it you don't wish to share x

We have just done a Christian study on angels, it was interesting though fairly basic. I think that they are higher beings spiritually, who are sent with direct purposes, such as to proclaim, protect people in peril or to move people to do something physically, when they haven't been led to this by the holy spirit.

I am interested by those who channel angels, do you believe in a higher power and if so what would prohibit you from speaking directly to that deity? It is a fascinating thread and am genuinely interested in different perspectives.

MollyGetsHerWandOut Sun 01-Jun-14 13:11:31

There are bad ones as well as good ones, like humans you can't tell by looking at them which they are.

I would put your faith in the createor/God.

sunshinemmum Sun 01-Jun-14 15:34:35

That is a good point Molly. If you believe in good angels, do you also believe in bad or fallen angels. Also if you channel angels directly rather than speaking to a higher power, how could you discern between the two and their influences?
