James Van Praagh’s Angel Story

James Van Praagh

I love angel stories. Spiritual medium James Van Praagh told me a very cool story when I interviewed him for my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything. Here is an excerpt from that story:

It was past midnight on a Saturday night when I left a party at a friend’s house. I was driving an old car—I think it was a 1967 Impala—because I had just moved to Los Angeles and I had no money. The gas gauge on the dashboard didn’t work so I had to go by mileage to estimate how much gas I had left. Sure enough, on my way home at one in the morning, I ran out of gas. Thank God it was at a busy intersection in Hollywood and there was a gas station right on the corner. I walked over to the station and they filled up a gas can for me.

Like a lot of older cars, the gas tank was under the license plate so I went around to the back of the car and kneeled down to open it. That’s when I found out that the gas can they had given me was leaking. Still, I was trying to make it work when, suddenly, I noticed an older man with snow-white hair standing to my right. I remember that he had very sweet eyes. He said, “You must go back to the service station and get another gas can right away.” (more…)
