The Mysterious Mechanic

December 17, 2011

Apparently, a full squadron of angels is deployed on the nation’s highways every winter. How else do you explain this story from Claudia Scott or the following story from Amy Brady of Charlotte North Carolina, which appeared in the January 2012 issue of Guideposts.

A policewoman, stranded on an empty interstate highway on Christmas, receives some very unexpected assistance

There’s one good thing about being on the road Christmas Day, I thought, driving from my parents’ house in Richmond, Virginia, back to Charlotte, North Carolina. No traffic. I’d barely seen another car on the interstate all day.

Most people were home with their families. But not me. I was a policewoman, new enough on the force that I didn’t get a choice of shifts. I’d managed to score time off Christmas Eve, but I had to be back on duty tonight.

My sergeant made it clear: “Be here for (more…)

Snow Tow

December 16, 2011

Some stories are so unbelievable that they strain credulity. The following story, which was featured in a Guideposts e-letter, is bound to raise an eyebrow or two. Yet, with all I’ve learned and experienced, I believe anything is possible. Frankly, I hope it is true, because I love what it represents. The storyteller is Claudia Scott from Carlsbad, California, just up the road a few miles from me.

When the snow forced us off the road, I didn’t know how I’d get my two babies home. Until a mysterious stranger pulled up

The snow often fell hard and heavy during the winters I lived in Colorado. It was coming down like crazy one afternoon when my boss closed the office and sent us home. I hurried to my car. I had to stop at the sitter’s house to pick up my two baby boys.

I made it the sitter’s house without too much trouble. “Be careful,” she said, as I strapped Nick, six months old, and Jon, 22 months old, into the backseat of the car.

“You know I will,” I said.

But almost as soon as her house was out of sight, (more…)

A Breath of Fresh Air

When lives are at stake, do angels step in? This chilling story by Sheri Bull of East Moline, Illinois, was featured in a Guideposts e-letter. Click here to sign up for Guideposts‘ free Mysterious Ways newsletter.

Her husband was away, the furnace was broken, and the front door was open. Did someone break in?

Here in the Midwest, we’re used to frigid winters, but that morning seemed colder than usual.

Maybe it was because my husband wasn’t sleeping next to me. He had gone out of town on a long trip. It was just me looking after our three daughters. We lived out in the country—no neighbors within shouting distance, and I felt vulnerable. At night I made sure to lock the doors and I prayed God would watch over us.

I’d woken up shivering, with a pounding (more…)

Laurie Baum: Protected, Guided and Mentored by Angels

May 16, 2009

Laurie Baum in front of the Self-Realization Fellowship temple in Encinitas, California

My good friend Laurie Baum, who, like me, follows the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi and founder of Self-Realization Fellowship, is a clairvoyant intuitive. I love the stories she’s told me about her angelic encounters and alternative healings, so I asked her if I could share them on my blog. To my delight, she agreed to write them up.

In yesterday’s post, she wrote of her physical and spiritual recovery from cancer. In today’s post, she shares stories of her angelic guidance and offers a primer on how to communicate with your own angels.

I’d like to mention that Laurie is also a licensed psychotherapist and astrological counselor in private practice in California. She is a former newspaper and news magazine reporter who is profiled in the books Psychic New York and The 100 Top Psychics in America.

Laurie is the author of A to Z Acrophonology: Discover the Power of the Letters in Your NameEverything You Need to Know About Your Astrology SignWhispers from the CosmosSacred Mysteries of Egypt, and Astrological Secrets for the New Millennium.

You can visit Laurie’s website for more information. For counseling appointments, click here to e-mail Laurie, or call her at (760) 753-7676. Thanks again, Laurie, for sharing your stories with me!

ange-flying-holding-little-girlFor as long as I can remember, I’ve talked to angels and they’ve talked to me. Sometimes I wonder how other people manage to get by without this angelic guidance.

Angels served many functions in my world as I was growing up. One of my earliest memories was when I was three years old, I was about to run out of my room, down the hall, and into the kitchen where my mother was cooking. When I was halfway down the hall, the angels cried out, “Laurie, run back to your room. Your mother is about to drop a glass bowl filled with food and if you’re in the room, she’ll blame you and punish you.” I turned around and ran back to my room, and sure enough, I heard the sound of a glass bowl shattering, food spattering all over the floor, and the sound of my mother screaming. I was spared being yelled at or hit by the intervention of my angels.

My angels would compensate for my parents’ erratic messages by (more…)

The Last Time Doreen Virtue Didn’t Listen To Her Angels

March 12, 2009

Doreen Virtue

I enjoyed interviewing Doreen Virtue for my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything. Doreen, a spiritual clairvoyant, Doctor of Psychology, and prolific author, explained why she always listens to her angelic guidance. Here is an excerpt from her amazing story:





Throughout my career, I had gotten in the habit of ignoring my divine guidance because my angels had been hounding me to quit my job as a psychotherapist and to teach people about spiritual healing instead. There was no way I was going to do that! I was a published author and a well-respected psychotherapist. If I were to start talking about things like angels and life after death, I would lose everything!

I stopped arguing with my angels on July 15, 1995, the day that ignoring their advice almost cost me my life. I was getting ready to go to an appointment in Anaheim, California, from my house in Newport Beach. I was alone in my bedroom getting dressed when I heard a male voice very clearly say, (more…)

James Van Praagh’s Angel Story

February 23, 2009

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…)

Set Off a Chain Reaction of Kindness

January 25, 2009

kind-boy-with-popsicleSharing the joy in your heart through kindness to others is the equivalent of sending a thank you card to God.

You may never know how your simple acts of kindness—a friendly smile and greeting, carrying someone’s groceries, offering a few quarters to an exasperated driver at a parking meter—touches others’ hearts or restores their faith in humanity.

It is not the act of kindness itself that touches people, it is the caring, the love, the compassion that accompanies it.

Your kind gestures may inspire others to act in kind, and perhaps set off chain reactions of good will that karmically circle back to you.

Ultimately, we are all messengers. Let kindness be (more…)

Good Night and Good Sleep!

January 4, 2009

woman-sleeping-glasses-on-bedEver notice how you don’t sleep as well when you go to bed with troubles on your mind? That’s a typical night for many of us—worrying about financial, job or relationship issues as soon as the light is switched off.

It recently dawned on me how to break this habit and drift off to sleep peacefully and joyfully, which naturally results in waking up well rested and energized!

What works for me might not work for you, but just in case it does, I wanted to share it with you.

A few days ago, I recalled the following parable: (more…)

Fear Takes Flight

December 21, 2008

I love earth angel stories! This one, by Vincent Yeo of Pasadena, California, appeared in the January 2008 issue of Guideposts.

I’m a motivational speaker, flying all over the country giving speeches. But for years I had a terrible fear of flying. My hands would sweat and my pulse race the minute I reached the jet way. This is irrational, I’d tell myself, but it made no difference. The fear was overwhelming. I’d grip the armrests till my knuckles turned white. Takeoffs and landings were particularly hard. The irony of giving speeches to help other people yet having such a crippling fear myself wasn’t lost on me.

I began to pray every Sunday, asking God to remove the fear. But months passed and my fear remained. Then one Sunday, kneeling beside my wife in church, I looked up. At that moment, a man stood several rows in front of me. He turned and smiled at me, then walked up the aisle, stopped at my pew and handed me what appeared to be a business card, then he continued up the aisle. How odd, I thought. I finished my prayer, stood and glanced at the card. (more…)
