Angels are a class of supernatural beings that occur in many religious systems, all around the world and throughout the history of beliefs. Angels are especially important in Abrahamic religions and people usually understand the concept of angels the way these religious systems present them.
The very term angel originates from Hebrew, later translated into Greek, as angelos, and later as angelus, in Latin. The meaning remains the same and it stands for ‘a messenger’. An angel was a messenger of God.
In time, angel became the term referring to a celestial being or a spirit that serves the divine order alone and nothing else.
Angels are beings of spiritual nature; they are not physical as human beings are, although they could take up a beautiful human form, if they were to appear in the human world. Angels travel from place to place and, in that sense, they were limited by some boundaries of space and time, though not in a way we, humans were.
Their bodies, in absence of a better word, were ethereal and close to the human soul, in its essence.
In addition, they do not appear in front of human beings in their heavenly splendor, but in an adjusted form we could comprehend better.
The belief in angelic guardians is spread worldwide and it comes in many forms. We will talk about it from the perspective of angelic numbers and angelic messages.
The belief in guardian angels, in that sense, is mixed with many other paths and spiritual systems or beliefs.
People have been always trying to understand mysterious forces of the universe, seeking guidance from the above, believing in light and goodness of the universe.
According to various angelic interpreters, to call them so, we all have guardian angels, regardless of what exactly we believe into. Those beautiful and pure spirits watch over us and care about us.
While many would say it was just a superstition, it is not that important what they say. There were many things we cannot understand and they still happen.
Guardian angels are caring celestial spirits that nurture human soul and guide us through our earthly lives. Every person has their own guardian angels.
According to beliefs, each person has a guardian angel determined to be his or her guide, even before the person came to life.
Your guardian angel would be present in your life, watching over you, letting other angels help you, in times of need.
Angels love human beings; in their angelic hearts, there is only pure love for us.
Even if you act and behave in a bad way, your guardian angel and all those that watch over you will still love you.
A guardian angel never abandons the one protected. However, angelic influence is very subtle. Angels do not interfere with our earthly lives directly.
According to interpretations of the biblical times, people have once talked to angels on a more regular level.
Our ancestors in paradise would talk to them. In time, we grew distant from our angelic friends, but they still deeply care about us.
Angels are around us, but we have to try harder to register their presence. Many subtle signs could tell you that angels were somewhere around.
Angelic Messages and Their Meaning
How do angels communicate with humans, if there were angels watching over us? Well, angels could use various channels.
They send us signs, in order to direct us towards some solution, to make us realize who we are and where should we be heading to.
Guardian angels do not make decisions in our place or resolve our problems. Angels are doing something much better.
They do their best to make us realize how powerful we were, but in the purest sense, not at the cost of others.
Angels help us recognize nobility in ourselves and others, they help us accept our weaknesses and give us hope for a better tomorrow.
Guardian angels give us courage to accept the world, to accept ourselves in the same world and to work on becoming better individuals.
Angels would always send you a sign of support and hope in times we fall and start doubting if we were good enough, if we even deserve this life.
Angels would help you see what matters and what does not matter. They are messengers of the godly, divine energy we strive for. Angels help us see the light at the end of the tunnel.
During good times, guardian angels are here to remind us to value everything we have and to become even better; to feel good about ourselves and about everything we have.
They teach us patience, respect, love, care, sympathy, compassion and all the good things that enrich the human soul and make us care for one another.
That all sounds very romantic, but how do they do that? Angels could use various channels to communicate with us. They often send us signs through mediums we frequently use, those we were familiar with.
It could be flickering lights, or something on a television program, a line in a book, something someone has said to you or so.
The message itself could come in any form. It could be a word, a symbol, an image or a number, which is the type of angelic messages we discuss here.
Of course, the more often the same symbol, number, a word or an image appears, it is more likely that an angel is trying to send you a message.
Sometimes, one time was enough; if the person has a delicate, very sensitive intuition.
Angel numbers are a type of angelic messages, coming in numerical form. Why numbers?
Well, we generally think in numbers, almost all the time. Numbers are all around us and we are equally aware and unaware of them.
Repeating numbers, just as repeating symbols or images, are striking phenomena that would easily grab your attention.
Any number could be an angelic number, a message from your guardian angel. However, your guardian angels would choose the number especially for you and the situation you find yourself into.
Angelic numbers are carefully chosen and sent to you by your celestial guides. Numbers have themselves been considered quite powerful. Numbers have specific cosmic vibrations.
Thus, a specific combination of digits would make ‘your’ number quite a powerful and a meaningful message.
Right, but how to know if you have received an angelic numerical message? Angel numbers usually occur in repetitive patterns.
The number does not have to be a striking one, in the first place (meaning, easily noticeable, of same digits or so).However, it is most likely it would occur in various places, more than once.
Angel Number 1017
What is number 1017 starts popping up all over the place? At the first look, this is not a particularly special number; it is not like 1111, 666, or some other symmetrical one or a one-digit number (those are very easy to recognize as a message, if you keep seeing them).
However, if you start seeing this number in the world around you, including both the physical and the abstract world (dreams, for instance), then your guardians want to tell you something.
If you had a specific, inexplicable feeling about this number, upon sawing it, we suggest you look into its meaning. Angelic numerology could help with that.
So, what is angel number 1017 about? What message your angels try to communicate?
Angel Number 1017 Composition Meaning
Before we summarize the overall message of this angel number, let us analyze it step by step. If you look into it, you will see that it consists of numbers 10 and 17, which is a common division when interpreting four-digit angel numbers.
Furthermore, it gives us numbers 1 and 8, when we sum up digits of these two. The overall sum of digits equals 9.
Number 1 represents the self, the Ego, the first and the best, as expected. Number one emphasizes one’s essential characteristics, temperament and traits, with an accent on improving them.
Number 1 represents the beginning, but also the goal. It embodies our ambition to reach the goal, as well as our freshness and enthusiasm, when we start pursuing our goals.
In angelic numerology and numerology in general, this number has always had great potential.
It symbolizes independence, courage, self-confidence, dignity, activity, leadership, fame and glory. It emphasizes masculine attributes in a person. On its bad side, number one could represent arrogance, egocentrism, aggression and dominance.
Zero represents infinite source of everything and it intensifies the vibration of other numbers.
The other number here, number 7, has always been associated with mystical properties, spirituality, spiritual journey, spiritual enlightenment and awakening, inner wisdom, inners strength.
Number seven is about chastity, dignity, isolation, solitary path, philosophy, wisdom, learning, science, invention, specialization. In short, we could identify number 7 and its vibration with all the concepts that enrich a human being on the inside, mentally and spiritually.
The one who is born under this number or otherwise affected by its vibe is a knowledge-seeking individual.
On a negative side, number 7 represents being anti-social, instead of being introverted in sense of researching realms of wisdom, spirituality, knowledge and else. It is not the same as self-isolation or even ascetic life.
It could also represent hypercritical attitude, lack of persistence, morbid thoughts, over-analysis, and depression.
Besides numbers 1 and 7, there are also subtle vibrations of number 9 and 8 in here.
Number eight is like a background ray in this construction. It represents authority and executive attitude, abundance, prosperity and stability, amongst other things.
The sum of all the digits gives 9 and this number stands for spiritual laws, for karma and enlightenment, empathy, duty, optimism, divine, higher wisdom.
Meaning and Symbolism of Angel Number 1017
Now when we have interpreted components of the angel number 1017 or, even better, its layers, what can be said about the overall message your guardians are trying to suggest by sending exactly this number to you?
Angel number 1017 is focused on belief in yourself, on both spiritual and mental transformation through learning. This angel number could direct you towards needed change.
We are all afraid of changing, mostly on a sub-conscious level. Most of the time, we dwell in routines or systems of belief or attitudes towards life that were harmful.
Number 9, in the background, is a karmic number. It suggests you carry the karmic burden from the past and rely on old patterns of thinking, behavior and acting.
Number 1 suggests you should focus on yourself, but in a good, transformative way.
Number 7 suggests the way you could change, through learning about the world, inner world, but also the world around you.
Open your mind towards new ideas and dare explore corners of your mind. Only then, you could get to know yourself and actually realize where your strength lies.
This number is very complex and its message is kind of spiritual and philosophical, but a very precious one.
Your good guardians would never send you such a message without reason and without believing you could comprehend it. Besides, number 7 is often identified with luck and fortune, so it adds a bit of divine optimism into the message.
Overall, this message is a very positive one and it usually comes to people who are thoughtful, very intelligent, with philosophical minds, those in search of knowledge and purpose.
Angel Number 1017 in Love
Apart from general meanings, everyone always likes to know what their angelic numbers say about love and love life.
Well, we have to agree that love was, indeed, the most powerful force in this world.
Number 1017 is associated with more philosophical and spiritual aspect of love.
It simply reminds you of the type of love you need in life. It tells about high standards in love, but also about some other forms of love that are not related to romantic relationships. First, there is love for knowledge.
You are probably very passionate about learning, about how the world functions and about spirituality, about reaching higher levels of being, the enlightenment and so on.
While this is great, do not get lost in this realm, even if you deeply love it. There is always that earthly aspect of love, a love between two human beings.
This number, however, suggests that you search for a person who could match your intelligence, who shares your passions for spirituality and knowledge.
This number, being so strong and complex, possibly suggests that you could soon meet such a person.
It could even be someone who would actually help you enter your process of inner transformation; someone who would bring some light into your world and make things clearer for you.
