Angels have such beatific faces, however they are depicted, and all with the same look. I begin to wonder if they are related; one big happy family; some pugnacious, some fallen, some a bit wishy washy. Catching sight of an angel – even in stone – having a damn good time is rare, not wishing to offend aficionados, I do believe, some days, especially when things go well, but usually think to call on them only when things do not.
The name Muriel derives from Myrrh. Courtesy of Angel Reach, (everything you ever wanted to know about angels) , here is an explanation for Angel Muriel
‘Muriel’s name means “God’s perfume.” Her angelic responsibilities are said to include tending the plants and animals of Earth. She is often shown with a crown of flowers, which she lovingly places into the river of life. It’s said that when she is around, you may smell the subtle scent of your favourite flower.
Muriel brings messages of peace and harmony, reminding us that every selfless good deed never goes unrewarded. Muriel is said to teach you how to love unconditionally.
As you invite Muriel into your life, it’s suggested that you will become more aware of how you can help others and actively look for opportunities to be of service i.e. You may find yourself suddenly find yourself thinking about how you can help the homeless or other charitable acts. Muriel is said to teach that helping others is the path to true happiness. ‘
The title of the book, Murielle’s Angel, is complete coincidence, although I was thinking of angels in human form: people who are uncommonly kind, generous, brave, or have any or all of the virtues in spades and whose kindness, generosity, bravery etc. has an effect on others. Perhaps the point of angels, in human form at least, is to foster the practice of virtues. It always seems if one person sets an example other try to follow. Perhaps we are back with random acts of kindness.
