It’s taken 9 years, but now I’m ready to tell you… THERE’S AN ANGEL IN MY OFFICE! 








Let’s go back to when it all started…

I was in the deepest and lowest of a recent chemo hit when my niece Simone turned up one morning. With a big smile on her face, she produced a big beautiful painting of an angel!

 As we sat down to a cup of tea, she proceeded to tell me that the same night she found out I had breast cancer, she woke from a deep sleep at 2am. She said, “I couldn’t see anything, but I knew I was not alone. Then, I heard someone saying, “Simone you must paint me for your Aunty. It’s important she knows she isn’t alone.”

I did what a sane person would do. I rolled over and tried to sleep it off. But it was like trying to sleep with the Aurora Borealis in my room!

By the third night I relented. I said yes, and to my word, I did paint her. And as I painted, I felt an urgency – something, someone, was asking to be brought into the now, from wherever it existed.

Who was this most insistent Angel? She gave “Anael,” as her name, and the message? “Tell her she is not alone. Tell her I am here to help and comfort her.”

Anael has been in my office since that day in 2005. But, it’s this year that I have come to truly know her. But why now, why this year? And then it occurred to me. This year, 2013, marks the end of a nine-year cycle for me. A nine-year cycle, which began with the diagnosis of advanced breast and lymph node cancer in March 2005!

With my next birthday in 2014, I begin a new nine-year cycle of experience. Am I scared that cancer might return? No! My Angel’s message was and continues to be so totally comforting, “Tell her she is not alone.”

These are more than words for me; they are testimony to the Divine being ever present in our lives, in your life and mine. I know I am OK. Regardless of what happens to me, I intend to respond with the knowledge, courage and wisdom, which comes from knowing I have Divine back up!

I can tell you without reservation that this is all you are ever asked to do. To respond to what happens to you, with the knowledge, courage and wisdom, which comes with the Divine backing we are all so lovingly given!   

What are your thoughts here…Do you believe in Angels? What do you think of the painting? Anna B.

    Hey Aunty, It still gives me chills reading the story and looking at the picture. Angels are ever present in our lives. Even though she was meant for you, this one made quite an impact on my path. What a lesson, to suspend disbelief and fly by faith alone. Anael influenced my future, I wrote a book about Angels called The Estrella. I painted Angels all my life, I realise how they were my companions through the most difficult times of my young life. How “outing” myself as a believer in Angels wouldn’t be as bad as I thought it would be…(looks around**nervously)

      Simone, it’s amazing, your words here are revealing even more to me about this beautiful Angel – her influence on you! Maybe your next book can be, Awakened by an Angel. xx

    Dear Anna,

    What a beautifully inspirational story. I am a huge believer in angels and it all started 10 years ago when my mother was diagonosed with cancer and a friend gave her the book “Angel Speak”. Mum gave the book to me and after reading it my life was never the same again. I talk to my angels every day and thank them for all that they do for me and the love they send me. For your niece to receive this powerful message about painting the angel picture for you is amazing. This means that the angels are definitely looking after you. P.S. I hope you are still taking the Transfer Factor Plus for your cancer. This product did amazing things for my mother also.

      How lovely to hear from you Christine, and what a beautiful Angel connection you and your mum have! Thank you for sharing your experience and for your beautiful words.I haven’t read the book, but from what you tell us it sounds like it’s worth reading. Some doctors now say that those who believe in a Divine Power, actually heal faster. One of my specialists actually said this to me. They are catching up! Yes, I am still taking TF as well as a few other supplements. Christine, I hope your mum is cancer free now and in good health.

    Oh Anna, she is beautiful! Your story has really touched me very deeply… Not sure what I think of angels but I hope they are there, watching over and protecting us. I am sure that there is much more than is seen and dreamt of in this world.

      It’s so good to hear from you Rosemary, thank you for your beautiful words. I must tell you I’m a realist, but I must also say that there is a far greater Force out there than we know. And I can also say, without hesitation, that it’s a most powerful and gentle Force of love..

    Hello Anna
    I do believe in angels. I have a special group and II call them “My Boys”. They are always there ready to help whenever I need them. I often send them to family members when they are in distress. I have several stories which have had amazing outcomes.
