I'm a fellow newbie and Angel as well ^_^
So what lead you to believe that you're an angel?
Hope you have a good time here.
What led me to believe I'm an angel? Oy... Well, when I was a kid, around 11 or so, I had a conversion experience that eventually led to me becoming a Christian. Not long after that, I started learning how to hear spirits. I was always a little sensitive, but my conversion basically flipped a switch in my soul. It turned certain things on, so to speak. I started talking to angels not too long after that to the point where I just got used to it. I know that sounds odd, but it was just part of my life. Thing is, I didn't think I was too odd. I just thought that there was some reason, some usefulness that God could get out of me doing this and I kind of rolled with it. When I was around 15, my friend's mother got a job at the Episcopal Church here in town playing organ. My friend didn't like the other kids in the youth group too much so she told me that if I didn't show up on my own that she was going to pick me up in my pj's. My friend is bit of a bitch (LOVE HER THOUGH) so I believed her. After the second time I went, it was pretty much love. It was like coming home. During high school, there was a lot of stuff going on and I kept getting in situation after situation that involved what I would describe as spiritual warfare. I thought, once again, that I was an ordinary christian who just happened to talk to angels because it helped her do God's work. Somewhere during this time I met Michael the archangel (I told my guardian when he showed up that I was naked and wet and was not going to talk to a stranger, lolz... I was in the shower, which was one of the few places you could have privacy in our house.) and several other followed him. Once again, I thought I was pretty ordinary except for... You get it right? Denial isn't just a river in Egypt. It runs through my backyard. My last year of college I re-met a guy I'd known when he was a freshman and after several incidents I found he thought he was an incarnate angel. Well, this was the most insane I'd ever heard---except he wasn't insane. He didn't come off as insane at all. By this point, I'd had half the hosts of heaven and many of the saints who've gone before lolz at my house off and on and I was still convinced I was totally normal. Long story short, two years, and several past life memories later I finally admitted to myself why this was all going on because I started remembering things. It was weird, because for the longest time I was willing to do anything for my angel friends but I didn't want to be 'lumped in with those people' at all. But yeah, the memories, guilt by association, the fact that I'm told by psychics that I have totally weird but flat out white energy, and the sensation of wings. Though, the wings, in my opinion, are the least of the reasons I think this.
With regard to my religion, I want to preface it with several things: 1. There is absolutely NOTHING in Anglican/Episcopal doctrine about being an incarnate angel. NOTHING. The Book of Common Prayer, which is pretty much what our theology is derived from, does not cover it. Holy scripture doesn't really cover it either except as a reason to be nice to strangers. 2. Reincarnation is NOT one of my religious beliefs, it is just something that happened to me. Again, I don't really think that Christianity excludes it, it just isn't something that we believe routinely happens. 3. I am NOT a Christian because I'm an angel and I'm not an angel because I'm a Christian. The two are intertwined but they didn't cause one another.
Did I miss something?
In Heaven an angel is nobody in particular.
