I would like to share my own personal experience on taking a leap of faith with the angels. In 2003 I was working away quite happily in Glasgow, Scotland but I knew there was something else I should be doing and somewhere else I should be. I went on holiday to a beautiful and remote island on the West Coast of Scotland. I went there for a weekend and ended up staying a month! Whilst I was there I was given the book 'Healing with the Angels' by Doreen Virtue. I read the book and loved it, it made so much sense. I came from a Church of Scotland background and went to Sunday School as a child. I knew that angels existed but I didn't know how to tap into their energy, let alone communicate and receive messages from them.
After some time I heard that Doreen Virtue was going to be in Edinburgh, Scotland for a workshop. My friend and I got tickets, I remember saying to her 'I wonder what it'll be like?' The workshop was amazing, I loved Doreen's energy and I gained so much from going. I saw that her Angel Therapy Practitioner Course was being held in Glastonbury, England the following year. At the time I put it to the back of my mind but as time went on I was getting gentle nudges in the form of feelings to sign up for the course. I had recently moved into a new flat and needed to get a new bathroom. I wondered how I would pay for the course and also have my new bathroom. I had the money to pay for one but not both! One night I thought 'Oh I must do this course, I just have to!'. I signed up and decided that I'd try and manifest the money for the new bathroom some way. In fact I did manifest the money for the bathroom not too long after!!
The Angel Therapy Course was life changing for me. It was one of the best experiences of my life. Being held in Glastonbury was extremely special too, the place has an energy that's hard to describe. You have to go there to experience it. I spent six days there and came back a different person.
Before I went to Glastonbury I had a dream of living in New Zealand. I had been there twice before and absolutely loved it. I knew I had to go back and had a desire to emigrate but I didn't know how. I was single at the time and didn't know if I could leave my family permanently to live at the other side of the world. When I was in Glastonbury we were doing readings every day, we paired up with each other, there was 150 of us in the class. I asked the question a few times 'Should I go to New Zealand?' The answer kept coming back was Spread your Wings, The Timing is Right and Go for it! Before I went on the course I didn't feel that I had the confidence to do emigrate on my own. After I came back I felt I really could do it, I had the confidence and started getting the ball rolling and applied for NZ Residency. I kept visualising myself in NZ, I remembered Browns Bay beach, Auckland and I took about fifteen minutes every day and saw myself there in my mind. I keep affirming 'I am living a happy life in NZ'. Eight months after I returned from Doreen's course I had the permanent residency stamp in my passport! I was over the moon. My dreams were coming true. I gave away just about everything i owned, it was a great feeling giving my things away to charity shops and friends.
I moved to Auckland in Oct 06' and I haven't looked back. I settled in straight away and it felt like I'd never been away. I got a job and found friends, I started my Angel Workshops and loved travelling up to Keri Keri, Northland to run them as well as in Auckland.
I also had a dream when I was in Scotland that one day I would meet someone, get married and have a child. When I was visualising my NZ residency all those years before I remember part of the visualisation I saw myself standing on Browns Bay beach (Auckland) with my husband and a small child. Roll the clock forward a few years, I met my husband in 07', we got married in 09' and had our daughter in 10'. The house we live in is very similar to the one I saw myself living in and we live five minutes from Browns Bay! It all came true.
I feel very grateful for my life, I am very blessed to live in this stunningly beautiful country. If there is something you'd like to do or have a dream but you don't feel that you can do it please know that you can. The angels gave me the push I needed. They gave me the confidence and especially Archangel Michael, I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for him.
The angels give you messages in the form of feelings, thoughts or ideas, an intuitive hunch, in your minds eye, through dreams and by speaking to you. They will repeat their guidance over and over. Its like that thought you can't get out of your head to get in touch with someone or go somewhere. Pay attention to these its the angels guiding you. Just know that you can have the life you really dreamed of. If someone had said to me a few years ago that I'd be living out here and doing what I am doing, I would have fallen off my chair! Anything is possible! Please know that. It will happen. I took that leap of faith and it paid off and you can too.
Love and Angel Blessings, Clare x
