Angel At Night

My family and I were going thru a terrible experience back in 2006 and to make long story short I had a chair next to my bed one night I was sleeping and I woke up looking towards my chair and there was a little girl dressed in all white with a hat on. She had beautiful glow but all of a sudden she walked away. I could not fall back asleep. I was terrified,but to this day I know she was an angel watching over me.

We never forgot

I’ve never told this story. When I was about 7yrs old I was left at home alone with my nephew who was three at the time. We were playing in a back room when something scared us. I don’t remember what I saw or heard but I knew I had to get out of that house or we were going to die. I clutched my nephew tightly, both of us screaming and crying, and ran toward the front door. Just before reaching the exit I saw a tiny ball of glowing white light hovering just above our front door. I stopped dead in my tracks. I could not take my eyes off that ball. Suddenly it started getting bigger and bigger. Eventually we were totally engulfed by the light. The next memory I have was floating inside this light. It was the purest most beautiful, soft light ever and I was transfixed by it. It felt so good. I can still fell it when I think about that day. Inside the light there was no sense of fear, pain, or worry. Somehow I knew everything was ok and we were going to be fine.

Being touched on back while asleep

Last year was the worse of my life. In six months I lost my brother-in-law, my younger brother passed away, I had my adult son and family removed from my house, and I divorced my absent husband. I have cried years of tears at unexpected times. When I went to bed I prayed longer and harder than ever. I ask the Lord, thru tears, to please give me a sign he was walking with me. About 3:00AM, I awoke to warm hands on my back and sit straight up. I was alone in the house and believe it was God giving me a sign he was with me. I was not afraid, just irritated someone laid hands on me. Then it hit me who it actually was and drifted off to a peaceful sleep.

Beautiful Bright Light

I've never experienced anything like this but it was amazing. Every night I will say a prayer "Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, guard me Jesus through the night and wake me with the morning light. " and it actually happened to me when I woke up out of no where and seen a beautiful bright light filling up my room. I thought maybe somebody turned on the light but I remembered the light in my room is very dim and then I thought about my window but I keep the blinds closed all the time. I soon went back to sleep with a great feeling and a sense of security.

Morning Sun Angel

It started with me keep seeing a figure at the end of my bed. I also kept seeing purple, green, and white balls of light in my room at night. One night I had just lay down. suddenly i was outside staring at this woman who had long black hair. Her wings covered the whole of the sky. She was massive. I asked her what she wanted, shouting at her. She smiled and she told me she was the angel of the morning sun. she flapped her wings three times and my body went all funny. I was back in my room. I could see myself lying in bed, I was on my ceiling. i was fighting an fell back into my body.. i straight away researched the angel of the morning sun and I found sculptures of her and pictures. it was 1000% the same angel. I'm still freaked out to this day as I had never heard of her before and also didn't believe in this type of thing. Could anybody tell me why this happened to me? Would be great.

bright light

I sat in the garden with my 7 year old son, suddenly I could see in the corner of my eye a very bright light. I looked to the left and down and the bright light was on an ornamental angel in the flower bed. Then suddenly the light disappeared. I have looked on the Net and it says I was visited by my gaurdian angel. Does anyone else know what this means. Thanks.

Reaching Out

I was four years old. I was in my brothers room crying. This is when I heard a sweet voice called me. I looked up towards the foot board and saw a woman with long hair lying on her right shoulder. She had on a white flowing cloth with light blue trimming surrounded by a white mist. Her arms were extended out with her palms facing upward as if she wanted to embrace me. She whisper towards me "come with me, I love you", in Spanish. I kept looking at her when I heard the bed room door starting to open. I screamed as I saw my mother walked into the room. She ran to the bed and lifts me up into her arms and ran out of the room. She sat down and started praying over me and kept pouring a sweet fragrance onto my head. I was not afraid of the lady but I do not know what happen between the time the door was opening and when I started screaming. We moved out several months later. However to this day I know I have someone watching over me and was protecting me for something else.

God Answers Our Prayers In His Timing

I prayed that God would show me an angel and he did twice many years after I prayed for this. Both encounters happened when I was sleeping. I suppose angels will come to visit us on occasion when we would be most relaxed and receptive to their visitations. The first encounter I had was when I was in a dream state walking along a dark path at night. Then suddenly the entire environment setting lit up with incredibly pure bright light as if the sun itself was shining on me. Suddenly I woke up, but no one was in the dark bedroom that I could see. So I asked in bewilderment "What is it?" as if it was someone I was speaking to. No voice or words came forth, but the angel conveyed thoughts/pictures to my mind telepathically, showing me that I left the side door of the garage open with a picture in my mind and then reminding me to close the door and to lock it. So, I thanked the angel and got out of bed and sure enough the door was wide open.

Red lights

Over this past few months when I have been at work I have encountered a very intense red light which has shone for about 4 seconds and then disappeared. When I have seen this light I have asked others present if they could see it but they all said no. I wondered if I was seeing things so I don't always say anything when it appears, but a couple of weeks ago it appeared and one of the people present with me saw it. In the building I work in it is impossible for this light to shine in. I saw it again last night but no one else did.

Death Angel

When I was twenty years old I was almost nine months pregnant. I was sitting in my bed wide awake. A vision of a ....well the best way I can explain....a bright light came into my room the vision as best I can say was like a man but his facial features were lion like and it seemed to have a bright light shining thru. I don't know how else to explain and I wish I could draw it but I'm not artistic . .42 years old now..this has haunted me to the day. That night my baby was killed by the umbilical cord. An angel took him I've no doubt at all.

Amazed

When I was younger I was going through a lot of things that a young 16 year old girl shouldn't have to endure; You can try to imagine. Well, my mother and I where arguing a lot and she stayed very angry because she was going through things of her on. She took it out on my little brother and me. I went to sleep that night after crying and praying to God; I prayed for hours until I drifted off to sleep. I woke up in the middle of the night to a bright light in my door way. It was so bright that I had to squint my eyes to look at this beautiful light, then a very tall what appeared to be a man walked out of the light to the edge of my bed walked to where I was laying kneeled down over me. He spoke my name and put his hand on my arm and started to whisper something in my ear. I could not understand what he was trying to tell me because as soon as he touched my arm I started feeling really tired and fell back to sleep. He made me feel so much comfort. I still think of my angel till this day.

The presence

Not long ago, my father was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer, and not given much hope for survival this past Christmas season. Although the odds were devastatingly against him, he chose to go through a round of chemo to take some comfort in the idea that he did give the whole attempt to be cured a credible shot. Although God has other plans, I take comfort in my faith that he will be taken care of by Christ and the angels themselves. I was up at the wee hours of morning after not being able to sleep in my unending thoughts and prayers. I stood in my driveway in the moonlight and meditated with chills indicating the presence of the Holy Spirit. As I prayed, my cat kept clawing and biting my ankles. I then telepathically said, "Jesus, can you please stop this annoying cat from biting my ankles while I am trying to talk to You?" At that very second, the cat refrained and sat up in a calmed state, although he still followed me as I strolled about the driveway. Coincidence? Ah-ah!

Angel in the Navy

In 1974 while stationed in Pearl Harbor, someone I had been drinking with spiked my wine with LSD. He did so with several others. We all went back to the base barracks, and some of the guys were going crazy. I prayed for help. A sailor open his door and asked what was wrong. I told him. He asked me to get everyone and bring them to his room. I did. He asked if we believed in God. We all shared our experiences about God that is when I noticed I was sober. It was way too soon for LSD is an 18 hour experience. It had only been a few hours since our drinks had been spiked. The next day I went to the room to thank the guy. When I went to the room, no one had been in that room for months. I was in communications and there had been no ship movements. No one but the guys who had their drinks spiked remembers the man. It has been a mystery for nearly 40 years. There can be only one explanation, that sailor was either a ghost or an angel. Because of how he spoke of God I believe he was an angel.
