And then I started a devotion to my Guardian Angel. I've learned that these celestial beings are not figments of our imaginations, but truly do exist. God in His goodness has given each of us a personal angel, not only to protect us in
times of danger but to guide us in our decisions in life. They are however not like God in having the power to read our thoughts so we have to "ask" them for help verbally every time we need them. They are always on the sidelines waiting for us to call on them for help. They don't like to intrude since we are given free will, so the key is to "ask for help" or guidance. And sometimes, a tinkle of a bell, a feather and other subtle signs they give, affirm their presence in our lives. You can read more about these wonderful beings here.
Learning about guardian angels, I started talking about them to my little beaboo. And I was surprised, she instantly named her guardian angel "Chi". At first she was scared of Chi, just the idea that Chi is behind her all the time - just invisible. But when she started including prayers to Chi about protecting her from bad dreams, I was surprised that the night terrors we experience almost every night seem to lessen and disappear altogether! If that isn't sign enough of the presence of this wonderful beings, I don't know what does. Thank you Chi!
