Angels have been around since the beginning of time. They are mentioned throughout the Bible. Some people have studied the angel realms. They believe that we each have a guardian angel and angel guides. The folks who have studied angels believe there are several levels of angels. Famous archangels include Archangel Michael (people pray to him for protection), and Archangel Raphael (people pray to him for good health or healing). In the study of angels, one learns how to be aware of messages the angels are giving you.
