Southwest Angel

Over the years many of my friends and loved ones have given me angels.  Maybe they think I need all I can get 🙂  Who knows?  But I’ve kept them all.  I mean, who would even think of getting rid of an angel, right?  I believe we all have a legion of angels, God’s emissaries, who surround us 24/7.  Sometimes I even remember to thank mine for always keeping me safe.  I really should do that more often.  There have been many times in my life that I KNOW FOR SURE I was assisted by the angelic realm.  Sometimes in the disguise of human beings.  One time in the body of a sweet, grandfatherly man but that’s a story for another time.  (I promise I’ll tell you later).

Since I plan to have this blog printed and bound into a book at the end of 2012, I thought it would be appropriate to include my angels.  Some are resting (packed away in storage) and some are sprinkled around my house and outside.  Today’s photo is my Southwest Angel, who suspends herself right outside my kitchen window.  Her wings flow with the breeze and she reminds me to be grateful every day.  She’s made of straw and burlap.  I added the red chili peppers.  I think she likes them.  Namaste’

Do you believe in angels?  Were you ever helped by an angel?  I’d love to hear about your experience with angels.

  1. If the angel isn’t there to bring you good luck, then the chili ristra she’s holding has you covered! 🙂


    1. Allright! I’ll be glad to receive any good luck I can get. I didn’t know that’s what they represented. Must be why I see these all over the place made into wreaths. Thanks for your comment. Be well and stay blessed.


      1. My parents live in New Mexico where chile ristras are very common. They are used for decoration and are said to bring good luck and good health. Almost EVERY house in southern New Mexico has a ristra hanging by the front door!


  2. Absolutely. Quite often we listen for voices, want to “feel” something or see something. Humans likes fireworks and displays to believe. However, it is often subtle unnoticed occurrences that are the miracles or guidance from Angels or Guides or God. When I look back at certain things, or simple things about how clients got to me – I just smile and say thank you, because I am in awe.

    Love the softness of the photo Gina, perfectly captured. Really really nice.


    1. You are so right … someone once said that we are constantly getting messages from God, our angels and guides, but who listens? Sometimes I’ll get an answer to a question through hearing a song, through an email or a phone call. Consciousness is rising, Ken! We are all so blessed. Thanks for your comment.


  3. I am the one who believes in angels… In my life I experienced such an interesting moments and made me to believe in angels… And also I do believe there are people who are angels without wings… even they don’t know this too… I loved your angel dear Regina, I have some of angels too in my home, but not too many as yours… and no one gifted me I bought to myself 🙂 This was a wonderful post, let me say this, for you too, angels, muses, beauties and the sun be with you always. Thank you, with my love, nia


  4. I think there are entities from the ether around us all the time. Good ones, not so good ones and indifferent ones. I believe some of them are guides. I also believe fairies, elves, tree spirits, animal spirits and those little guys that come out at night in your house and move stuff around are there all the time. Sometimes you can catch a fleeting glimpse out of the side of your eye.

    What bothers me about the title angels for these helpers is the fundamental Christian myth of departed souls on clouds with wings and harps. If that were true I kind of think the space shuttles and Hubble telescope would have reported some sightings.


Say something! Let me know what you're thinkin' ...
