If you want to read really inspiring stories of people who have seen angels or have been helped by angels I would like to recommend 4 books on this subject all by doreen virtue. The first one is called ANGEL VISIONS: True stories of people who have seen angels and how you can see angels, too! Amazon.com: Angel Visions (9781848500983): Doreen Virtue: Books
There is even a chapter devoted to people who saw ascended masters - like mother mary, Jesus, St Therese, etc.
In part 2 there are many sections devoted to talking about what you can do to see an angel yourself. Including a one week detailed plan on what you need to do so you can open up to see an angel.
The 2nd book is called: ANGEL VISIONS II: More true stories of people who have had contact with angels and how you can too! Amazon.com: Angel Visions II: More True Stories of People Who Have Had Contact with Angels, and How YOU Can, Too! (9781561708505): Doreen Virtue: Books
The 3rd book is called SAVED BY AN ANGEL: True accounts of people who have had extraordinary experiences with angels and how you can too! Amazon.com: Saved By An Angel: True Accounts of People Who Have Had Extraordinary Experiences with Angels...and How YOU Can, Too! (9781401933616): Doreen Virtue: Books
Also, doreen has a weekly column in womans world magazine
(available at all newstands every week) called: My Guardian Angel. Every week there is a new inspiring story of how an angel sent hope or intervened or sent guidance, etc into someones life. This is the 4th book I want to recommend and doreen has put all of these stories into a book Amazon.com: My Guardian Angel: True Stories of Angelic Encounters from Woman's World Magazine Readers (9781401917531): Doreen Virtue, Amy Oscar: Books
