A spiritual self-help guide for people who need harmony in their lives, A Harmony of Angels invites readers to rediscover the long lost tradition of calling upon angels for help. Angela McGerr describes seven angels, one for each day of the week. At some point in our lives, each one of us has stumbled upon a tiny white feather, curiously picked it up, turned it over gently in our fingers, and wondered where it came from. A Harmony of Angels teaches readers to see these delicate feathers as messages sent by angels. The word angel means messenger - it's derived from the Greek angelos. These messages can take many forms, such as unexpected aromas or colors, tingling in the air, or sudden feelings of loving warmth, but they have one meaning: we are not alone. A Harmony of Angels awakens readers to these signs, teaches them how to find the names of their guardian angels, and guides them in creating home sanctuaries to recharge the spirit. "In learning how to commune with angels you will never be alone or lack spiritual guidance," author Angela McGerr writes. The book includes daily tips, practical exercises, visualizations, rituals and meditations to help readers find tranquility every day of the week. Angel enthusiasts, people who are seeking spiritual guidance to help them through stress or difficult situations, and seekers of spiritual direction who aren't comfortable with the traditions of established churches can all find comfort by calling upon the seven "beings of pure spirit" described by Angela McGerr. These angels, Gabriel (Monday), Camael (Tuesday), Michael (Wednesday), Zadkiel (Thursday), Haniel (Friday), Cassiel (Saturday), and Raphael (Sunday), transcend any onereligion: they're found in the sacred texts of Christianity, Judaism, Islam and other religions.
The idea of calling upon angels for help can be traced back two thousand years to the Essenes, a religious group focused on healing who believed spiritual and physical well-being must come from communing with angels daily. The Essenes are thought to have written most of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
