Hello there. Do you believe so, that every person has their guardian angel? What's the basis of your faith?

On papers I'm Orthodox (not sure how to type it :)). But in reality I only believe in science. I think it's only a matter of time to get answers for everything... So my answer is no I don't believe in guardian angels... I think it's only luck.

Hi. Why you said you are Orthodox on papers? Aren't they believe in science? Yes I believe in science too even Bible speaks of science. But we cannot deny that there is something extraordinary that there is really spirits roaming around.. Thanks to your comment.

I'm pagan and I believe we all have spirit guides. Almost but not quite the same as the concept of a guardian angel. I don't believe that spirit guides protect us and I think that is a common thought about "guardian" angels. I think they are with us to help remind us what we are meant to learn in this life & to guide us through situations we encounter, if we listen & ask for their insight.

Hi eden32. You have said that you don't believe that spirit guides protect us. But reminding and guiding us I think that's one way of protecting us. And how can we listen and ask for their insight? How's that?

"But reminding and guiding us I think that's one way of protecting us. And how can we listen and ask for their insight? How's that?" I should have specified, that I don't think they can physically prevent harm or change our lives. I think the term guardian angel implies that this spirit is able to intervene & keep negative things from happening to us; but sometimes negative things are part of what we are meant to experience. I don't think an angel/spirit can for example stop a burglar from breaking into our home or prevent a fire from taking all of our possessions; but perhaps they can alert us in these situations so that we only lose possessions & not our lives or our families. As far as asking for their guidance, I think there are many ways we can connect with them. Meditation, prayer, pendulum use, the tarot, Reiki treatments, etc and I think the more we acknowledge their presence & seek their insights the easier it becomes to hear them.

Hi eden32. Maybe we have different views in life because we are different in faith. With due respect, I do not believe in rituals nor anything made by men without the basis from the Bible. My faith is based from the teaching of God in the Bible. And I believe God sent His angel that fear Him, and delivered them. Thanks to your comment friend. Good day.
