The Angel of Discernment teaches us to honour our inner voice and to listen to our hearts. If we are given complex choices which involve making difficult decisions affecting our spiritual evolution, this angel helps us to choose the right path. It is always guiding us towards what will serve our growth and help us develop our strengths and gifts. Discernment eliminates what is negative, ineffectual and maybe potentially damaging to us. Learning discernment is refining our skill at sensing what is the healthiest and most joyful path for us.

Discernment is the ability to know what is ultimately for our greatest good. It is not necessarily the easy or the popular path. It is, however, the path best suited for our good. We can know what is right for us when we listen to our hearts and reflect on our choices. The Angel of Discernment is there to help guide our way in making the wisest choices.

Discernment is that ability to know in your head and heart that something or someone is right for you. Many people struggle to try to make a situation or a person right rather than asking if that person or situation is the best for themselves. When we are discerning we value ourselves at every level, and make choices which reflect that level of self-worth. The Angel of Discernment helps us to see things clearly and to expand our vision beyond our fears and doubts about ourselves. It helps us know what we may be afraid to see and allows us the possibility of making intelligent and heart-felt choices.

We can pray to The Angel of Discernment to help us develop our ability to listen to our inner voice. This will help us hear the angels whispering to us, and know the right choices to make. When we have learned discernment then the angels help us open fully to the treasures of our inner knowing. They never risk exposing that deep inner knowing to rejection. Discernment protects our deepest sensitivities. The angels want us to make only the best decisions for ourselves.

Book Details
Angel Encyclopedia: Their paradisal life ends, however, in Genesis 3 when Eve is tempted by a serpent to eat the forbidden fruit of the tree of life in the center of the garden. She does so and gives fruit to Adam to eat. As a result they fall from grace. God, angry, curses the serpent to crawl on its belly, curses Eve to be submissive to her husband and to have pain in childbirth, and curses Adam to sweat and toil and suffer pain and death. The two are sent out of Eden. God places CHERUBIM with a turning flaming sword at the east gate of Eden to guard access to the Tree of Life.
