Your guardian angel is the spirit of someone passed on, to guide a person or group of people. The concept of guardian angels dates back thousands of years and is widely believed in by many faiths, some gone some still here. Even some more obscure faiths like Zoroastrianism teaches that we’re each guided through life by a guardian angel – a protector from heaven.
Guardian angels were the original belief of many Pagans. It was something the Christian faith, as well as some others, appropriated. Pagans believed that angels were simply highly evolved spirits that had a higher calling: to watch over the world and guide the people living on it. In Norse mythology, angels were known as Valkyries. Celtic mythology called them fairies, or sprites.
