The angels tell me that many of us are so busy that we forget to live life and enjoy the ordinary everyday pleasures. We try to cram so much into our busy lives that we actually forget what is important. Many of us place too much importance on money and material things. Having some money is of course important but the angels keep telling me to remind you that when you die you can bring no money or material things to Heaven with you. What you do bring with you are your memories and all the love you felt on this earth.
Each and every one of us has a unique role to play in this world -- no one else can play this part. No one is supposed to end their own life, when they do, it's as if a link in a chain is broken and it slows down the progress of humanity. We all need each other. When someone commits suicide it's as if everyone around the world shrinks a little.
Mother’s Day is a time for all of us - those of us who are still lucky enough to have our mothers with us, and those of us who have mothers in heaven - to honour our mothers. Don’t let this opportunity to acknowledge your mother, at least in a small way go past.
The first time I saw an American gathering angel was when I was about six and growing up in Ireland. I have been seeing angels since I was a baby, I see them physically as I would see someone standing in front of me and no day has passed in my life when I haven't seen an angel. This was the first time though that I had seen an angel that looked quite like this.
As the Sikh man walked towards the circle of unlit candles he was surrounded by angels. Behind him stood his guardian angel and as he reached to taper out to light the candle, his guardian angel reached out as if to hold the taper with him. The Sikh man lit one of the candles on the table. Beside each of the candles stood a very tall angel, dwarfing both the people and the other angels in the room. Their folded wings reached far up above the ceiling which seemed to have disappeared. These angels all looked alike. They appeared to be draped in golden robes which fell in perfect folds. The angels were so bright, and the light from them radiated out into the room.
Christmas is a very special time for me and for everyone regardless of their religion.I'm a Catholic so I celebrate the birth of baby Jesus.But the angels tell me that this time of the year is special in all faiths and traditions and not just for people who are Christians. The angels tell me that from November until the new year there is great celebration in heaven and here on earth there are holy occasions in all religions.
"I don't believe in angels, or guardian angels... I don't believe in any of that nonsense at all," said the woman I met in Bewleys Cafe in Dublin last week. I smiled to myself. I could see the light of her guardian angel behind her and there were six big beautiful white angels around her.
Yesterday I spent two and half hours on the phone with a journalist in Colombia. Talking with her really brought home to me how similar the issues we are all facing. So many countries are in turmoil at the moment. And the angels are telling me that we need to pray for all in our countries – not just our families and friends, not just for the people we support – but for everyone.
Life can be very tough at times for all of us. But don’t ever think that God or the Angels have deserted you. They are beside you all the time. When a child falls and cuts its knee, an Angel will break its fall. The Angel can’t interfere to prevent the child falling because God has given us freewill and Angels won’t overstep that, but an Angel can and does break its fall. Without an Angel there the fall would be much more serious.
We can’t just keep pulling at the earth, taking and giving nothing back. We know that if we keep overloading a human organ like the kidney, we get sickness and perhaps ultimately death. The same is true with the earth. When we put too much pressure on her she responds, she needs to fight back for her own survival. Global warming is exactly this. It’s nature’s response to how we are mistreating the environment.
