  1. i dreamt of an angel dress in white with wings of a white dove and black hair up to shoulder.. he is standing between two paths the one was lighted by the sun which he is facing and the a path that seems headed in the forest. his face isn’t clear because he is few meters away from me and it seemed he is just standing by staring at me… before i sleep i asked my guardian angel his name and the moment i fell asleep i heard “malakus” i woke up and look for the word in google and the word that first appeared was “malachi” which means messenger or angel… our guardian angels appreciate whenever we pray for them to be blessed by God because like humans angels need prayers too… God bless us ?
