i kinda think we manifest angels by putting out a request to the universe.
i remember one time i found a large sum of money, but i knew deep down it wasnt for me. i was getting lots of grief from family/friends to spend it, etc, but when i told them i think the money had a greater purpose they all thought i was crazy...i felt pretty alone and chastized over the situation. i put a request out to the universe to tell me what to do with the money as i meditated one night, and deposited money in the bank and forgot about the whole incident.
then a few days later i walked into a resturant. as i was ordering my food i notice a man sitting in the distance just watching me. as i went to sit down, the man smiled at me as if saying "good morning" and i smiled back. when i sat down, i noticed this man walking toward me from the corner of my eye. he walked over, put a newspaper down for me to read. i said thank you, and he walked away never saying a word to me.
as i was reading the newspaper i stopped and thought how strange this was. that man could have given paper to anyone else in this resturant, but he chose me. i went back to reading the paper, and when i turned to page 2 i noticed a shelter that was going to close unless they got money to keep operations going...they already had power cut off and article said children were being affected terribly without formula and needed help quickly. it was sad. i knew just then what i was being shown, and given just this section of the newspaper (Part B - Local News), for a reason...it was the answer to my request for guidance.
after i donated the money, i told this story (and much more details left out here) to friends and family. they were shocked what happened. one friend told me in her culture such people (the man in resturant) are angels sent waiting to help you. i thought it was silly, and dismissed the whole thing.
then that night i woke up around 2am hearing a tune playing over-and-over in my head. i recognized the tune because that was the same thing that was playing over the muzak system in the resturant when the man gave me the newspaper to read. i didnt know the words, since all i heard was the melody in the resturant, but i knew what the song was. it was the last beatles song recorded in the mid-90s, called "Real Love".
i went and looked-up the words to the song. here are the first few lines:
All my little plans and schemes
Lost like some forgotten dreams
Seems that all I really was doing
Was waiting for you
Just like little girls and boys
Playing with their little toys
Seems like all they really were doing
Was waiting for love
Don't need to be alone
No need to be alone
It's real love
It's real, yes it's real love
needless to say, on that day i became a believer in angels...specifically the ones that are sent to help us and walking amongst us.
