The topic of Angels and their presence in our lives is experiencing a boost in popularity. It’s one of those subjects that never really goes away thanks to the constant presence of these beings, but every decade or so it seems that there is a surge in people looking for information on them.
This could have to do with the generational cycle, or maybe it’s just the way trends roll. But the fact is that many people are returning to knowledge that has been popular in the past. More and more people are getting into yoga, holistic healing, herbs, and angels.
So why is this a compelling subject that comes up time and time again?
Well, as we probably all know, there will never be enough “evidence” to support the existence of angels for many skeptics. They will always write angelic experiences off as something cheap, such as fatigue, hallucinations, a chemical imbalance, or straight-up crazy talk.
But let’s put that group aside for a moment – leave out those who will never believe in the unseen no matter how many others believe in it – and look at those who do believe. Why do we believe, and why do angels keep coming up?
For many people, it is as simple as the fact that angels exist. Different people describe them in different ways – some referring to them as “high-vibrational,” others using terms like “divine,” “heavenly,” and “of God.” They manifest in different ways in many people’s lives, but so many of the stories hold the same thread of truth that you have to think that something is going on here.
Looking back into history, it is difficult to find a civilization that doesn’t mention angels in one form or another. Beings that come and go without the confines of a physical body, but yet they are not disembodied spirits. They have vast amounts of knowledge, and so show themselves to be directly connected to the creator. Generally they have special skills, such as healing, and something about them is distinctly inhuman – they are always spoken of or depicted as though they are something more than us.
There are the wings are well, which are a source of controversy. Many people say that they have seen angels with wings, but these appendages are not generally used for flight. The wings are treated more like a sign – a way of letting people know what they’re talking to. But many people experience angels without wings, which shows that the wings are more for our benefit than anything. It’s hard to know where the wings started, or who started them (humans or the angels) but the fact is that they are part of the whole angel package, and have been for a very long time.
But going back to the fact that most civilizations talk about angels in one way or another, this just highlights one reason why angels are so popular. They are a worldwide phenomenon, and they appear to individuals regardless of race, age, or religious views. These beings are non-denominational, and are simply here to assist anyone who asks for their help.
This makes them very attractive to many people, since calling on their angels is a great way to gain powerful assistance and guidance in their lives without having to subscribe or commit to any religion.
The bottom line is that angels are a compelling mystery, and that we’re not likely to see an “explanation” for these beings in the near future. But that doesn’t stop people from experiencing them, or keep angels from being a popular topic in music, art, and life.
