The Gatekeeper Angel

March 13, 2014


The Gatekeeper Angel, Protector of the Home


It seems, that I have a period when I work with several paintings at the same time.


I know, that our Guardian Angels are also called as Gatekeepers.

This time, however, I painted an Angel who protects a home.


A Home can mean many things,
but for most of us it means a place that we are emotionally very attached to.

A home is an important scene,
it is a place for recouping
and a place that we share with our family members.

A home connects us with our family,
it’s usually a place where we meet our closest friends and relatives.

When we feel welcome somewhere, it warms our heart – it feels like home.


A home doesn’t have to be a huge, wealthy property,
a palace built with marble and gold,
not even a haven of peace.

The most important thing is, that we feel safe there.

This Angels tells me, that there are available angels to protect our homes.
Not only against burglars,

to prevent us from breaking the peace of the home.

With these old fashioned words, she means,
that we should not to fall into a bad behaviour:

we should avoid in every possible way hatred, resentment or accusations,
vain dispute and cross words.

In some way, a home is the heart of society.

She says, that we can ask angels to protect our home when we are away,

but we can also ask them to give us the patience and calmness.
To bring good mood, joy and balance into our homes.


Home is a basis:

those feelings we have at home,

make a huge impact on everything we do, and how we feel outside the home.
