The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: guardian angel

DEFINITIONS

Guardian Angel: Although the biblical concept of an angel is that of a special class of non-physical created being, the popular concept is that of a highly-evolved soul or spirit of a deceased person, as if “angel” were a degree of advancement after ghost. In this concept, certain angels are assigned (by God?) to watch over and protect a specific person. Among some, the concept of the guardian angel is synonymous with spirit guide.Don
