Demons And Angels


When I was 12 years old I experienced something that confuses me to this day. I was staying the night with my grandmother, who was going through a divorce and having a really hard time. She cooked a great dinner, I went to bed, and slept like a rock... That is, until dawn.

I awoke with the sun beginning to rise. I was wide awake. My eyes were drawn to the upper corner of my bedroom. There in the corner were several small apparitions, I believe they were angels. They were absolutely gorgeous, small (about 2 feet high), fluffy, and transparent. I closed my eyes, opened them, and they remained. I remember doing that several times then sat up in my bed. When I sat up, it was if I scared them and they faded away. I decided to go to my grandma's room.

That's when I turned and saw it beside my bed. There stood a small, dark figure, about 3 feet in height, wearing a black cloak with a hood, no face, about 2 feet from my face. It looked like a small grim reaper without the blade. I was in shock but not scared. I looked at it for about a minute, then it turned, glided out of my room. I got out of my bed and followed it down the hall to my grandmother's room, where it faded away. I will never forget how cold the floor was on my bare feet. I said nothing to anyone for about a year, in fear they wouldn't believe me. I was 12 years old for goodness sake. I thought my parent's, friends, and my grandmother especially would tell me I was dreaming, crazy, or lying. When I saw pictures of the grim reaper around Halloween or my friends dressed up like them it scared the crap out of me. But I continued to keep my mouth shut...

About a year later, my mother, grandmother, and I were driving to Memphis for a day of shopping. My grandmother was 57 years old, in good health (and mind). I was in the back of my mother's car when she said, "I have to tell yall something. I can't keep it to me anymore. I have been seeing things. Angels."

I anxiously sat up and said, "I SAW THEM TOO!" I have never been so relieved to hear I wasn't alone. She told about her first experience. She said she awoke in the middle of the night, her room glowing. She said she saw a beautiful angel, with wings, over her bead, with two small children angels with her. She laughed and said, "after they disappeared I got up and got a Coke and watched T.V. I thought I wasn't ready to die!"

Then I told my story. She kind of chuckled when I told about the black hooded thing and said, "Maybe he was looking for Larry" (my grandfather who had been married to her for 40 years and left her for a 23 year-old). She told more stories about beautiful sightings of angels and pleaded we wouldn't tell a soul. She never experienced anything ugly or scary, just angels.

She continued to see these things for about 9 months. She would only talk about them if you asked. I remember asking her about her last experience. "Yes, as a matter of fact, I saw one last week. But this one was different." I asked her what she meant. "This one was ugly, it had a big head. I said a prayer and told it, You can't hurt me, God won't let you hurt me. It just smiled back at me and disappeared." This kind of bothered me.

One month later, my grandmother developed a bad case of pneumonia. She went into the hospital. The fluid in her lungs began to crystallize and harden. It is called A.R.D.S. (Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome). She was put on a ventilator for a week, had a stroke, and spent 28 days in the I.C.U. At St. Bernard's Hospital in Jonesboro, Arkansas. My family made the decision to pull the plug the 28th day, May 1st, 1999.

I have not seen any angels or demons since her death. I try to refrain from talking about it because when I do speak of it, things begin to happen. The last time my mother and I talked about it, a bright light appeared in the room. We both screamed. Needless to say, I was 20, and I slept with her that night. I believe the angels were protection. I believe the demon was a sign of death. I think about it a lot. Sometimes it bothers me that when I sat up in bed that morning I scared the angels away and not the demon. I followed the demon. When something happens like that, you just can't explain it. I have talked to several pastors about it and they didn't have much to say. I believe I just freaked them out.

ashleydawn I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother, I hope you have not found her death too hard.

I don't think you scared the angels either. They are there to protect and reassure us, whilst demons may try and frighten us, which may explain why the hooded figure did not leave immediately. You may also be seeing omens.

Of course it's your choice whether you want to have these abilities or not, and if you'd rather not see the things you saw, then that's perfectly alright.

Wow, so I am not the only one that sees angels then, am I? I know they are supposed to be invisible to us but I see them all the time! When I am at church or just on the streets or in the car, I see them or their auras, on top of buildings, the sky or any where else, they just sometimes stop and watch me. They are beautiful too. I guess I am blessed with this gift but cursed when I might see something we might not want to see, demons or dark spirits, but I seem to have a protective barrier around me since they just flee when they see me.
How strange!

There is no such thing as scaring Angels. They actually scare us sometimes so that why they chose to take form of beautiful people to make us comfortable when in truth some Angels may look frightening, however Fallen Angels look far worst.
You have to watch out, Fallen Angels can take the form of beautiful Angels as well to trick us. Greet each Angel you meet with May God Peace be with you. You also must test the Angels of God, do they come in the name of God and to reveal their selves in name of Christ. Only the Fallen ones will answer no.
Do not be afraid of speaking to everyone about these Angels, they are meant to reach out to people like they have done with you.
God Bless

I do love your story. How I wish I could meet you. You see my dear, Angels never get scared because they are messengers of God. They are extremely strong and bold. Those lights and small dark figures could be evil spirits. Do you know that the devil himself can appear as an angel (2nd corinthians 11) just for you to accept him? He doesn't want to show his real ugly self.

Those "elements" could be disturbing you probably because you or your ancestors have a connection to the occult. You may not kow about this. Try to investigate& think but be careful and after you get an evidence, tell a man of God about it. If the pastors you told about this incidence couldn't help you then you really need to look for another church because the littlest of Christians (If there is) should be able to solve this.

But please don't try this except you are born again. Once you accept Jesus Christ by confessing your sins, acknowledging that he loves you, he came to die for your sins, that he Is now alive and you believe in your heart, then you are born again. You are now a daughter of God. You have the power to deal with those elements without raising a finger. Their main aim is to destroy you. After getting born again, get a bible to study and know more about you sonship with God and how much he loves you. If you need any more assistance my no is +2348057444038.

Glory be to God who has orchestrated our paths to cross. I'm hoping to hear from you.

Hi Ashley, as aliciap1214 I believe the cloaked demon was a forewarning, even your Gran knew her authority that nothing can hurt her or any believer. Looking back years ago I was wrestling with a demon I ask myself was it not an opportunity to rise to a position of authority
Which was my birthright?

When I spoke to an employee years ago. I questioned if he was sincere in his claim about God. Then we both heard angels wings as we chatted on 2 different occasions.

Yes I believe if we speak of angels they do manifest at times.

Thanks you for sharing a lovely testimony of love, light and protection

As someone that has had many dealing from both sides of the fence so to speak, the little demons may have been there to let you know the future of your grandmother but the angels were there to let you know that your grandmother was safe with them and they would be taking here when her time came. Don't be afraid to speak of Angels, trust me... They speak of you too!

When we get hurt we learn to hate

When we hate others we become hated

When we are healed we learn to love

When we love others we become loved

I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing

I was reading this verse last week and it sounded like Jesus was speaking to me, he sounded like many waters and his voice was soo peaceful and calm.

Fear imediately left me, and I was completely covered by the love of God.

The most awesome thing about prayer is that it is extremely powerful,

On July 17th 2009 I sent a prayer request to Equippers church, to help me be envolved more in Church ministry, and not get drunk on my 21st birthday and not to hook up with a random hot chick.

That same night July 17th 2009 my life changed completely and now 25th November 2009 I've never missed a youth event on Fridays and being attending church every Sunday!

My birthday was last month and I never got drunk or hooked up with a chick, Instead for the past 2 months I have being a youth leader, and our youth has grown from 5-8 youth to 25+ youth and growing.

And just yesterday night one of our youth steped up and he made a brave decision to become a youth leader!

God is Awesome,

Jesus loves us more than we know

Making Jesus Lord of my life was one of the most difficult decisions I ever made, because I had to give up on bad influenced friends, drunkedness, pornography, my online flyff rpg account, and leaving my negative family and surround myself with church leaders who encouraged me.

I gave up everything and Put God first.
On July 17th I made Jesus the lord of my life,

It may seem like a difficult decision to make at the time, but it is well worth it for the long run, I am grateful for God the father who sent his Son Jesus to die for our sins.

Making Jesus the Lord of my life has being by far the most important decision I ever made.

Hi Ashley,

Thank you so much for sharing your story. I would recommend that you pray and ask God for guidance. It is very possible that you, like your grandmother, have a gift. And if you ask God, He can show you how to use it, and also how to protect yourself.

Also, I don't believe you scared off the angels. If the cloaked being was a demon, the angels would not have left the room. It may have simply been letting you know to spend more time with your grandmother.

Once again, thank you for sharing.
