Well...that was the confirmation I asked God for earlier. Later on in my life, I learned that Tara is part of the Hindu and Buddhist cultures since the 6th century. Tara is Tibet's most beloved deity. In the Sanskrit language, Tara means "one who liberates." Tara is seen as the female manifestation of enlightenment, the Mother of all Buddhas. she is seen as a helper to those wanting to reach enlightenment, a Bodhisattva.
The myths explain that she was a normal woman on her path with her meditation practice. A male monk told her that she would have to be reborn as a male in order to be enlightened. Her response? "There is no ma, no woman, no self, no person, no consciousness." She did attain enlightenment in her lifetime and became a champion of women everywhere. Her work on earth after that experience with the male monk was to help others, encouraging them to overcome social injustices, prejudices, inequalities, and general discouragement. She was perhaps the first feminist!
I believe we do have guardian angels, even if our dreams and prayers are pointing us in the direction of learning about things we never thought about before. As our elders who have passed away still give us wisdoms from beyond the abyss, our guardian angels are helping us on our path of life too.
