Dream meaning of angels

To dream of angels symbolize goodness, purity, protection, comfort and consolation. Pay careful attention to the message that the angels are trying to convey. These messages serve as a guide toward greater fulfillment and happiness In particular, to see three angels in your dream symbolize some sort of divinity. It is considered a particularly spiritual and holy dream.

In the earliest Biblical books, angels are merely servants or messengers, running errands for God. By the Middle Ages and after, angels are some sort of supernatural being, an intermediary between God and man. Angels are members of heavenly choirs, they sit around the throne of judgment, and they deliver messages of prophecy or doom. They fight battles and inspire hope. The variety of descriptions led scholars and theologians to conclude that there were several kinds of angels. After all, a huge creature with six wings and four faces would not be mistaken for a human by anyone, let alone Abraham. Hence, there must be different classes or species of angels, even fallen angels

Do angels still come to people in dreams? Yes! Just as in Biblical times, angels come to people when they are dreaming. Perhaps God chooses this way because we are more relaxed and open to his presence when we are asleep.

While most people never have such an angelic visitation, it is more common than most people think Angels are known as messengers, in fact, their name comes from the Greek angelos meaning ‘messenger’. Since angels are the deliverers of messages and since dreams are messages from the unconscious what do angels in dreams mean? How do they appear in dreams? Why are angelic dreams important?

Angelic dreams usually have a different quality of feeling than some other dreams. While all dreams are messages from our unconscious, angelic dreams may feel particularly important or may feel particularly uplifting or peaceful because of the divine association most people in most cultures have for the symbol. Angelic dreams have the feeling of being close with the divine–and never discount that one may very well be in contact with the divine.

Muhammed, Mary, Joseph, and Jacob had no doubt whatsoever about the source of their visitors! Why might angel dreams be important? One reason an angelic dream might be quite significant is that no matter how the angel appears, its appearance is almost always a herald that the issue it is representing is one that is spiritual in nature. These dreams may also deserve special emphasis since the symbol itself is so potent. If the unconscious has chosen an angel to deliver its message, the dream really wants your attention! Angelic dreams may give answers to questions, problems, or may provide much needed inspiration.

Another reason for the importance of the angel in a dream is that since angels symbolize the divine, they point toward a high degree of self-realization.

Angels may be seen as intermediaries between the upper and lower case self and self-one’s true being as opposed to one’s ego. Dreams of angelics may point to a high degree of communication between the two and may therefore be heralds of achieving a higher degree of individualization and self-actualization. Remember before Jacob wrestled, he watched. He watched angels ascending and descending a ladder to heaven and it was only after witnessing this conjunction of heaven and earth that he was able to overcome the angel with whom he wrestled Which brings us to a final thought on what angels in dreams may symbolize.

Not all angels reside in the region of the divine some are of the fallen variety. Therefore it is important to study the message being delivered as it may point to that which we need to wrestle in order to return to our own divine spiritual state.

A symbol of invisible forces, of the powers ascending and descending between the Source-of-Life and the world of phenomena (50). Here, as in other cases (such as the Cross), the symbolic fact does not modify the real fact. In alchemy, the angel symbolizes sublimation, i.e. the ascension of a volatile (spiritual) principle, as in the figures of the Viatorium spagyricum.

The parallelism between angelic orders and astral worlds has been traced with singular precision by Rudolf Steiner in Les Hiérarchies spirituelles, following the treatise on the celestial hierarchies by the Pseudo-Dionysius.

From the earliest days of culture, angels figure in artistic iconography, and by the 4th millennium B.C. little or no distinction is made between angels and winged deities.

Gothic art, in many remarkable images, expresses the protective and sublime aspects of the angelfigure, while the Romanesque tends rather to stress its other-worldly nature.
