Life gets real lying on a gurney staring at the cardiac ward ceiling while circled by murmuring masked strangers, bleeping heart monitors, IV needles snaking out of every orifice. My rug of life had been abruptly yanked out but, based on the outcome, I’m confident today I wasn’t alone, and I’ll explain.
During a doctor’s examination, I was rushed to the hospital…stat. In the lobby I was met by a masked “concierge” directing me to lie down on a gurney. Later, frightened, and alone on my hospital bed, the cardiologist straightforwardly told me to get my affairs in order.
Until then, I trashed my earth suit like a rock star a hotel room. Socially programmed, I obediently “sleepwalked” through life: empty, less than whole, disconnected from my source and what I now believe are my guardian angels. I hadn’t yet evolved to realize the connection between fresh, highly vibrating food from earth’s garden and healthy cellular health relating to clearer connectivity to a higher, bigger-than-me power or energy.
Several nights later alone in darkness, I repeatedly felt and brushed away micro-puffs of air on my cheek. A flying insect? Surely not in a sterile hospital room? To get my attention and groom me for my life’s purpose, I’m now convinced my angels, or an energetic intelligence much bigger than I, healed me and ignited my deepest passion because I waltzed out of the hospital two weeks later totally healed, a true miracle, although baffled cardiologists offered no explanation. Phew, that was close. I’d nearly killed myself and destroyed my once-in-this-lifetime mulligan to live my life’s mission to help others.
Although, I’ve lived this 3-D reality long enough to know we don’t live it alone. It took a decade of reflection however, to realize the micro-puffs were from the wings of my Guardian Angels miraculously healing my heart.
It was acclaimed Brazilian author of “The Alchemist”, who said, “No, I never saw an angel, but it is irrelevant whether I saw one or not. I feel their presence around me.” Plato and Aristotle were convinced angels exist. In modern times, polls suggest nearly 70 percent of Americans think angels are real. Books and movies about angels and angelic contact are enormously popular: "Where Angels Tread", “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Ghostbusters”, popular television shows "Highway to Heaven", "Touched by an Angel", “Angel in the Outfield,” and current paranormal TV reality shows helped root the eminence of angels and spirit guides in American culture’s subconscious.
A Baylor Religion Survey found that 57 percent of Catholics, 81 percent of black Protestants, 66 percent of Evangelical Protestants, and 10 percent of Jews reported having a personal experience with a guardian angel. And 20 percent of those who identified themselves as having no religion also claimed to have encountered an angel. And then there are skeptics requiring scientific evidence.
According to the New World Encyclopedia, Hinduism uses the term devas to refer to divine beings comparable to angels. Buddhism and Jainism believe in the existence of devas. Angel-like beings called Tennin and Tenshi appear in Japanese mythology. “Today, belief in angels, especially the popular idea of guardian angels, is deeply comforting to many” Each person has his or her unique perspective, meaning it’s purely subjective. Drugrehab.com expounds, “For many, God is a higher power. For others, a higher power isn’t associated with religion or a deity. It’s a connection we share with all living things.”
Some truly see and communicate with angels, like Lorna Byrne, who wrote the international best seller “Angels in My Hair”. “I see angels every day and always have … I cannot remember a time when I have not seen angels,” she said in her book. “I see them as physically as I see my daughter sitting across the dinner table from me and I talk with them as I talk with other people, although I can also communicate with them without words.” Byrne says every person has a guardian angel, regardless of his or her religion, nationality, or belief in God. “Your guardian angel is trying to help you. It is a gift from God, and it never leaves you for one moment, from before your birth to after your death,” she said.
Learnreligions.com explains “Since angel communication happens through an exchange of electromagnetic energy at a high vibrational level, we can perceive more of what angels are trying to tell us if we raise our own vibration to a higher energy frequency.”
Apparently, it wasn’t my time, so over the next decade, as my mission slowly revealed itself, I lost 100 pounds and reclaimed my holistic wholeness while preparing my earth suit for my gradually unfolding mission as TV host, journalist, author and corporate presenter regarding the mind, body, emotional and spiritual benefits of earth’s nutrition to attain our highest, truest potential.
This grateful high-'vibing' survivor no longer believes in coincidence. Our loving guardian angels watch over and always protect me. All we must do is make self-compassionate food and lifestyle choices, believe, maintain a high vibe, humbly ask for assistance, and receive with gratitude.
