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.
