are fairly common miracles that indicate there is
more to life than just this physical dimension.
Numerous authors, poets, artists and visionaries
have reported angelic visitations. Many books and
documentaries have described angel experiences by
people from all walks of life. As with NDEs, the
greatest proof is the sheer number of such
encounters, especially those that are confirmatory
interventions are described in scriptures of all
religions. The Jewish Kabbalah says there are 49
million angels. The Koran speaks of angels wafting
down by the grace of their Lord. In the Bible,
Psalms 91 states, “He shall give his angels charge
