Sylvia Browne's A Book of Angels brings us into the landscape of angels that one might not be too familiar with.

At the start of each chapter there are glorious looking black and white pencil sketch drawings by Christina Simonds showing an angel of a diverse background such as an Asian female angel to a Native American male angel.
Sylvia also includes a quote from sacred texts such as the Holy Bible or Koran pertaining to the group of angels she is going to be discussing.

Sylvia introduces as to the reason why she believes in angels after a family tragedy. Her mother's brother, Paul, who had the gift like Sylvia was diagnosed with cancer too late. While he was in the hospital hanging on for life, a brilliant white light entered the room filling it with peace and joy. He told his mom that this was an angel whom had come for him.

She explains that angels most of the time communicate with us through telepathy or thoughts in our mind and not with spoken word which is why so many of us might complain that angels aren't talking to us..well they don't! Not in the way we expect anyhow.

There is an angel chart in the book that goes into detail about the ten phylum or levels of various angels that cover the Angels, Archangels, Cherubim, Seraphim, Powers, Principalities, Thrones, Dominions, Virtues and Carrions.
On this chart describes their specific animal totem, element, stone, color of their wings, purpose, and function.

Archangels totem is the wolf while their element is rain since like rain the archangels are fantastic for cleansing.

Never before have I read an angel book in which all of these angels are given the spotlight and told of what they are capable of.

Azna or Mother God is discussed as is Father God along with their group of angels.
She encourages us to ask Azna and the archangels for help daily.

You will find answers to twenty eight frequently asked questions given to her by fans over the years with such inquiries if everyone has a guardian angel, why did God create angels, why can't angels help us more, how to address angels,etc.

A great piece of information in this book is of your birth chart. Every person has a specified chart in which they made before their soul enters here on this planet and life themes to fulfill while alive.
Virtues govern over these charts and can deliver us when we are going through too much pain or difficulty than we can bear.

There are meditations for you to receive healing and gain intercession from each of these angels and true angel letters encountering angels.

Excerpt from page 138:


Sit or lie in a comfortable, meditative position. Close your eyes. Relax your feet, your ankles, your calves, your knees, your thighs, and your buttocks area. Relax your body up through your trunk, arms, fingers, neck, and head. Take three deep breaths, surround yourself with a golden light, and pray the following prayer.

Dearest Mother, please send your angels to help me with ______________(state petition), so that I will fulfill my chart, but I ask for Your intercession in this time of sickness,despair, grief, or hopelessness. Let Your angels come and watch over me. Remove all pain and suffering and help me to see the light out of this dark tunnel, and to give me health and insight into my life.

Sylvia's real yet loving attitude and charm comes through each word in this book.
She refers to the angels and God with such warmth it makes you smile.
