The soul at it's highest is found like God, but an angel gives a closer idea of Him. That is all an angel is: an idea of God.
As a child, Sophy Burnham longed to write words that would be immortal, like those of the ancient Greeks. With thirteen published works, including three New York Times Bestsellers, she is well on her way to manifesting her wish. If you are familiar with Burnham’s books, you know that in recent years they all deal in some way with spiritual matters or mysticism. In the 1990s her A Book of Angels ignited a cultural obsession flooding the market with books and films about angels. Her latest book, The Art of Intuition: Cultivating Your Inner Wisdom, concerns how to reach your full potential. Twenty years ago, my mom gave me another Sophy Burnham book called Angel Letters. Last week, that long-lost book resurfaced on my book shelf right around the time that all sorts of sweet little coincidences were taking place in our home. Naturally, I wanted to reach out to the author to say Thank You. Her book makes me feel a little less crazy for believing in the power of angels and synchronicity. Her words make me feel a little less alone, knowing that others like me have caught a glimpse of something completely unexplainable “out there.”The playwright, novelist, doting grandmother, horse enthusiast, cat lover and former journalist is a sought-after speaker on angels, forgiveness, intuition and other topics. Sophy was kind enough to agree to an interview for this blog. We made plans last week for this interview, before the massacre in Connecticut. On Monday, when we finally talked, the tragedy overshadowed our conversation, so that we kept returning to the theological and practical implications of that horrible event.

Thanks to Sophy, here is something new I learned today for this addition of "Sky's The Limit" in what you can learn.
Did you know Familiar with a capital "F" is an ancient word for angel or messenger or guardian. You do now!
