Who is My Guardian Angel?
A guardian angel is a type of angel that is meant to protect and guide a person, group, or country. Belief in tutelary beings can be traced back to all of history. Ancient Judaism had a lot to do with the idea of angels who looked out for people. In Christianity, Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite made a lot of progress on the angel hierarchy in the 5th century. Since the 5th century, there have been many changes in the way people think about angels and tutelary spirits. The idea is that guardian angels are there to protect whoever God sends them to. Abraham of Worms, a German Cabalist, wrote the 15th-century book The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage. It talks about the idea of a guardian angel. Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers, a co-founder of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, translated this book into English in 1897. He called the guardian angel the “Holy Guardian Angel,” and he called him that. Aleister Crowley, the founder of the religion Thelema, thought that the was a good way to show how one’s truest, most divine self looked. He thought it was like the “Genius” of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the Augoeides of Iamblichus, the Atman of Hinduism, and the Daimon of the ancient Greeks. Following the teachings of the Golden Dawn, Crowley made changes to the rituals that were meant to help people get in touch with their guardian angels.
