Have you always felt like a stranger on this Earth? Is it hard for you to understand why people act the way they do? Does any form of violence or unkindness upset you greatly? Does this world baffle you? Do you often find yourself in the position of helping others and knowing exactly what you need to do? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, it could be that you really are a stranger in this world. You may be an Earth Angel.
What is an Earth Angel?
The simplest definition of an Earth Angel is an angel who has incarnated into a human body. Yet, this definition raises a lot of other questions. For example, what is an angel? How is an angel different from a human? How can an angel incarnate into a human body, and why would one do so? Read on for a discussion of these questions.
I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love. – Marilyn Monroe
What is an Angel?
In order to understand what an angel is, it is important to step back and look at the nature of Creation itself. Different traditions have different Creation myths. While the stories of these myths are often very different from each other, they all speak to Fundamental Truth. Truth itself is beyond our understanding, so it is given to us in stories so that we can understand it in our limited state. A discussion of these Creation myths is beyond the scope of this article, but some basic information would be helpful.
All Creation started from One Source, but at some point, the one split into two, and there began to be polarities. One of these polarities is the one between what is often called Good and Evil. It can also be called the one between Light and Dark, which should not be confused with the Day and Night polarity, which is much different. The polarity between Good and Evil forms the basis for the Great War. Ultimately, everything, even Evil, will go back to the One, but that is a mystery that cannot really be understood from an unEnlightened state. In the state of existence that we live in, though, the Great War is very real.
There are beings that were created to serve the side of Light and Good, and those beings are called angels. In many traditions, there are delineations of the hierarchy of angels, but that is not necessary to understand the nature of Earth Angels.
How are Angels Different than Humans?
Humans are Axial Beings. Axial Beings are those that are at the crossroads, and they alone in all of Creation have the power to choose. On Earth, so far as we know, human beings are the only Axial Beings on the planet at this time. This is what makes human beings different than animals. Some animals, such as elephants and dolphins, may be as intelligent, or even more intelligent than humans, but none of them show signs of being Axial. This means that humans can rise far above the level of animals, but they can also fall way below as well. This is one of the meanings of the number 4, which can appear as the Angel Number 444.
As the ones who can choose, Axial Beings hold a special place in Creation. This does not make them the highest beings, though. Angels, the ones who serve the Good and the Light, are far higher than humans, but they are not Axial. There may be exceptions to this, and there are stories and myths of angels who have turned to the Dark. As a general rule, however, it is in the very nature of angels to serve the Light.
Angels who Incarnate into Human Bodies
Most angels are ethereal beings. They do not have physical bodies. Angels are all around us, and they help us in many different ways. Some angels are sent to the Earth in physical bodies. They are born into a family in the same way that a human soul is. Angels may be sent to inhabit human bodies as part of their mission to serve, or they may be here to learn something that they could learn no other way. It could have been that they were allowed to come here by the Light because they were curious about the physical world.
These angels who were born in human bodies are known as Earth Angels. Most Earth Angels are not aware of who they are. When we incarnate into a new birth, we generally forget our previous lives, and Earth Angels also forget their origins as well. Earth Angels can usually do their mission whether they know who they are or not, but some awaken and learn the truth.
5 Signs That You May Be an Earth Angel
Does what has been written resonate with you? Do you think that you may be one of these Earth Angels? Read on to learn 5 signs that you may be.
1) You have always felt out of place in this world
One of the first and foremost signs that you may be an Earth Angel is that you have always had a sense that you did not belong here. Many of the customs and attitudes that people have are baffling and confusing. As a child, you may have felt it strange that you have the name that you do, or wondered what you were doing in your body.
As you were growing up, you may have felt very different from everyone else. You just did not think like other people. The things that seemed important to them may have seemed silly things to worry about. It may feel like you are always talking a slightly different language than everyone around you.
There are many people who feel like they do not fit in for some reason or another, but in this day and age, with access to the Internet, most people eventually find where they belong. If you are an Earth Angel, however, you may still be looking.
2) You prefer to be alone
If you are an Earth Angel, you are likely to prefer to be alone than in the company of other people. This may seem strange because, in the Higher Planes, one is rarely alone. Here on Earth, however, humans can be exhausting. This goes along with the feeling of not fitting in and finding it hard to communicate and find a basis for understanding other people.
As an Earth Angel, you are also likely to be empathic and to be a magnet for those who are having troubles and difficulties. This further adds to the sense that being with other people is exhausting. It is very hard for Earth Angels to say no to someone or to set boundaries, so in many cases, it is easier to just be alone.
3) You are often in the right place at the right time to help another
Earth Angels are servants of the Light, and as servants of the Light, they are led to where they need to be when they need to be there. If you are an Earth Angel, you may have experienced having an inexplicable urge to go somewhere or do something. When you do, you find that whatever it was you had the urge to do brought you to a place where someone needed you. This happens to human beings as well, and it is often attributed to coincidence.
If you are an Earth Angel, though, this may be a regular occurrence for you. It may have happened more times than you can count. The urges that you have experienced are really small missions that have been given to you by your superiors in the angelic realms.
4) You abhor violence and nastiness
If you are an Earth Angel, you will have a lot of trouble dealing with the horrors that can be found on the Earthly plane. Coming from the angelic realms, you are not used to them at all. Many humans have developed callouses to such things from lifetimes on this planet, but as an Earth Angel, you will not have been hardened to such things. You probably avoid television, the news, and most popular culture.
As an Earth Angel, you are likely to feel more saddened than most by the problems on this Earth, even the ones that do not directly impact you or your loved ones. You have an instinctive awareness that on a deep level, we are all One and that pain and suffering affect all of us.
5) You are unable to intentionally harm another
All of the above signs may indicate you are an Earth Angel, but many true humans also show those signs as well. This last sign, however, is a fairly good indication that you are indeed an angel and not a human. Angels are not perfect. They are servants of the Light. They are not the Ultimate Light. On the other hand, they are obedient to the Light. They may make mistakes, but they cannot knowingly and intentionally serve the Dark or harm a person.
If you are an Earth Angel, you will be constitutionally incapable of even thinking about hurting another. It does not matter how angry you are or how badly they hurt you, the idea of taking revenge or getting back at them will be abhorrent to you. In many cases, you will show kindness even to people who mean to do you harm. You will do so because that is all that you know how to do.
This is not to say that you will never make mistakes or hurt someone unintentionally. It is just that you will not be able to do so purposefully or even hold the thought of doing so for more than a second.
Angels are all around us, and there are some angels that live in human bodies. You may be one of these angels. If you exhibit some or all of these signs, take heart. You are not strange or wrong. Your differences do not make you crazy. On the contrary, these could be signs that you are a true servant of the Light. These could be signs that you are an Earth Angel.
