Write a letter to an angel…your personal angel perhaps**

To my guardian angel,

Are you really out there? I recently wrote a letter to God and asked him or her the same question. If you both exist, do you work together?

What is your role exactly? Does God create and you help us on our way? When I’m running late and I think I’m going to miss the train, are you the one who causes a minor delay, so I can catch it or do you do bigger work? Do you help me get exactly where I need to be and meet the people I need in my life at the exact right time?

Who are you anyway? Are you someone already in my life posing as a mere mortal or are you constantly floating around me like a free spirit? Are you fate? Are you destiny? Are you free will or power? If you could please give me a hint, that would be nice.

If you look down on me, is it from Heaven and does it really exist? Will I have somewhere to go when my time comes and do you know when that will be?

I have more questions than answers, not just for you, but about life. Will I ever figure it out? Angel, if you’re out there, can you please help me find my way?

I think that’s all the questions I have for you, I’ll leave it here…for now.


Talk soon.
