Many, many years ago, long before Angels became 'fashionable' and I was going through a very tough time; I would call on Archangel Michael and ask him to stand behind me, wrap his wings around me. I did this whenever I felt afraid or unsafe and it felt as if he was holding me in a comforting embrace. I always felt much better for it.
But I never told anyone for fear of what they'd think!
I had been doing this for a couple of years, then one day I went for a palm reading. The reader (my mum!) said: 'I have never seen anything like this before - you have a huge angel standing behind you with his wings wrapped around you!' I then shared with her my story and she was amazed. Life continued and I kept calling on Archangel Michael whenever I felt the need.
So many times I have found signs from the Angels, sometimes they have appeared spontaneously, other times in response to my asking for a sign. I usually find angel feathers (and I have quite a collection) but sometimes single coins or small collections of coins in the most unexpected places. I always pick the up and keep them in a pot on my kitchen windowsill.
The angels always let me know they are near me, and they do help when I ask. The help or the answer isn't always in form I have asked for, sometimes that is because the angels know there is a better solution in hand. So I trust them to bring me what I need.
I often ask for help with a parking space when I am in a hurry, and they always oblige. I make sure that I am 'tuned' into them when I ask, and they guide towards the space I need. I recall taking my eldest grand daughter to Grandparent and Toddler Group when she was tiny - we often talk about the Angels together and she draws pictures of them. So often when we returned to the car for me to take her home, we'd find a fluffy, white feather and she'd pick it up, really excited!
I have many angelic ornaments in my flat - in the bedroom, living room and dining rooms. My grand daughter likes to gather them up and play games with them Often the games involve Angels healing her dolls or people she loves. It amazes me the games that she plays so carefully with my treasured ornaments; it's almost as if she has come into this life with memories of her life before birth.
Each night, she and her younger brother shout 'goodnight' to the angels before they go to bed and they ask for angelic protection to all the people that they love and care about.
Little did I realise or think all those year ago, that I would spend my time helping others with the healing energies of the angels - either through hands on healing; or like now through giving Angel Card readings. They clearly made themselves known to me all those years ago in preparation for my current life.
