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
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.

Sometimes after
something terrible has happened to someone – a car crash, a boating
accident, getting lost in the mountains – they will say that it was a
miracle that they survived. In reality they will have survived because
the Angels gave them that extra bit of strength to run faster, to
lift something heavy, the extra body heat they needed, that person who
came by at just the right time, or whatever was needed at the time.

Ask
God and the Angels to help you, but remember that sometimes they
won’t grant your request in the way you expect it; perhaps it’s not
the right thing. So yes, people do die in accidents, but the Angels
are there for them also, helping them to be peaceful and calm as they
take them on their journey to the other world.

Sometimes
a child is intended to live only a short time and the purpose of that
child’s life may be that everyone who comes into contact with them
grows more spiritual, becomes more aware of God and the Angels. This is
a miracle in itself.

Frequently
things we consider disasters – losing a job, a marriage break-up,
failing an exam – are in fact miracles in disguise and years later
when people look back at them, they can identify that this was a major
turning point in their lives.

This
is your life and it’s very precious – your job is to live life to the
full, no matter how desperate you think things are. Have faith that
things will work out and remember you are never alone.

My experience of this wisdom in action:

One day recently, while I was working on my book, I was walking along
a winding path with beautiful big trees in the grounds of Kilkenny
Castle. A father and son were walking with their dogs in front of me.
The father was very elderly and leaning on his son’s arm. I was shown
the father’s Guardian Angel and he turned and smiled at me. The
Guardian Angel was actually helping the old man to walk, the Angel was
taking the old man’s weight, keeping him upright, helping to keep him
mobile in those last years of his life. The Angel was signalling to
me, showing me how bent the old man’s legs were, and I’d say that old
man was in quite a lot of pain at times. It was wonderful to see that
Angel there – if he wasn’t the man would have had to use much more
effort to walk along, and would have become tired very quickly. He
might have fallen over and broken something.

The Angel was helping to carry him, to give him more out of life in his later years.

I’m
sure the old man had no idea of how much his Angel was helping him.
If I’d asked him, he might have said he didn’t believe in Angels, but
I know that at some stage in his life, he did ask God to help him.
Maybe he thinks that God hasn’t, that God ignored his plea, but that
day I saw just how much God and the Angels were doing to make his life
easier.
