Archangels visited me as a child/teenager
As a child I was brought up in a negative environment, my parents were in an unhappy marriage and lots of violence and alcohol were involved.
I remember one night waking up to feel a presence I can only describe as angelic. I don't remember seeing anything, but I knew I was in the presence of a male angel who I felt had just appeared. I just remember feeling really loved and comforted by him and he embraced me and I got the message (he kind of telepathically told me) that he was going to be there to protect me.
From the ages of 12-16 i started seeing and feeling a very negative presence around me. I don't want to go into detail about it but I felt this thing was evil.
I went though a really hard time in my life as well, I left school and had no friends and became really depressed.
The entity was around me when I was alone until one day I sat down and told it to leave in my mind. I had a vision of falling through space and into the sun.
I never saw or felt the presence again.
A few years later my life improved, although events in my life still make my life hard I feel like I'm no longer sad or angry or anything bad. I feel like I have a guardian angel that led me to read spiritual books and re establish my faith in God.
I first learnt about Archangel Michael when I was 18 and as soon as I saw his image I felt drawn to him, I wonder if he had been with me to protect me from the negative entity (or even he was the one who got rid of it)
A few weeks ago I was looking at these Archangel cards I had and was thinking about Michael when a bright purple light flashed infront of me. I've heard that Michael sometimes appears as blue or purple flashes so I really hope that was him.
The next night I went to bed and was thinking about when I saw the light and I was wondering why I had negative entities around when I was younger, then a few minutes later I closed my eyes and I had a vision.
A figure came up to me. He stood before me and I could feel his powerful presence. I could tell he was an angel because of the power that he had. I didn't get to see much of his face but he looked just like a man and he was wearing a long white gown/dress (like the ones you commonly see angels wearing) He reached out and handed me what looked like a piece of paper with a message on it. I could see odd symbols written on it, then a voice said "We must teach forgiveness" and the vision ended with a loud BANG sound in my ears.
It really shocked me, and it kind of scared me because the vision was that powerful. I haven't experienced anything like that before. It definitely was not a dream or just my mind because it was so vivid and I could feel and hear him.
The message about forgiveness makes sense to me, because I have forgive everyone in my past and I understand that forgiving lets go of negativity around you and lets you be free and happy. I think if you want God to forgive you, you must forgive others.
I'm still wondering who the angel was, I don't think it was Michael because it didn't look like him and his hair looked kind of short and possibly brown.
I was thinking perhaps it was Archangel Zadkiel because he's the angel of forgiveness.
I really hope that the angels through God will help me in my future to help others.
