|And normally, I answer this question "I like all the seasons". That is always how I answer that question. But for some reason I said "Oh, summer, I suppose". And the cabbie replied "Really? I thought you would have said you like all the seasons." My jaw dropped and I just stared at the back of this guys head thinking "Who are you?". We were pulling up to my friends house - and he turned and said something very personal to me about making sure that my husband always treats me right and that I deserve that.|
wOW WOW WOW!! That's amazing! I've had other little things happen that make me think i've seen angels.
With my DD Raeden (the one I had the dream about before I got pg) I went into labour at 20 weeks. WAs on bedrest for every many many probs. Towards the end I started having lots of probs and worrying she wouldn't be born alive. I remember laying in bed near her play-yard one night BAWLING and praying soo sooo hard and out of the corner of my eye seeing something white and misty over her bed. This happened every night for 2 weeks. That I would see something white over her bed. I really believe it was her angel. Especially when she arrived at 36 weeks completely healthy!
|We talked about all sorts of things. He lived at an Ashram in India, altough he was European by descent. He gave me his holy book - which I don't know what it was but I do know what I read when I opened it up. It said
"Nothing happens in the cosmic play but at its foreseen time and place.""
And after I wrote that in my journal and said something else he got up and said my time is up here I have to go now and I never did see him again.
Does in a dream count? When I was TTC DD#2 I was told that after not ovulating on Clomid and Metformin the dr thought I should try IUI. We quit all meds. I had a dream one night that I was shopping in walmart and a super super sweet black woman came up to me and put her hand on my stomach and told me it would all be ok. I got pg 2 months later with NO meds
Sort of kidding but not really.
10 or 12 years ago I was single, and working a waitress job at night to
make some extra cash. I had just finished my waitress shift. I had a pocketful of money and hopped into a cab because it February and we were having a freezing bitter cold spell, like 20 below or more for several days in a row. Nobody was on the streets.
The cab started down the street and I looked over and saw a woman at a bus stop cradling a bundle. It was a new baby wrapped in a massive blanket. It was 11:30 or 12:00 at night, and I just shouted to the driver "pull over". I opened the cab door and motioned for her to get in. Without saying a word she slid right in. I asked her where she lived and she told me, but other than that we didn't speak, I think she was latino and mabey didn't have any English.
I had the cabbie drop me off at home, paid him and then gave the woman $$ to pay cabbie after her ride (in retrospect, I should have given her some extra)
Anyway, the whole situation was very surreal. I feel as if I was in such a great state of mind at the time that I was able to follow some higher direction from a source greater than myself, without even thinking. I feel like at that moment, I was her angel--I was available to be used as an angel and I was. In retrospect, it was one of the best moments of my life and something I'm very proud of. Not that I haven't done good deeds or charity work since that---but I feel that act was inspired, effortless, and completely in the flow of the universe---I also feel that it didn't come from "me".
I really think my sister is an angel. She is the most calming person in the world and makes everything better for everyone. Anytime something is wrong with me, she seems to be able to fix my problem with very little effort. I don't know how else to explain it. It's like she's here to make sure my life goes smoothly... (I hope that doesn't sound egotistical, because I don't mean it that way whatsoever).
Not really an angel, but before I got pregnant with my oldest I had a dream. In the dream I had a son who in the dream was 4-6 y/o. He boy was very cute and had blue eyes and blonde hair and a big, bright smile. Well, I woke up from the dream and thought "that's strange!" It was strange b/c my husband at the time and I both have brown hair/brown eyes (and of course they're dominant (sp?).
Well, my just turned 6 y/o ds has...blonde hair AND blue eyes and the best smile, lol! It gives me the chills just thinking about it. I got preggo with him with-in a few months of that dream. I'll never forget it as long as I live, that's for sure!
On more thing that's more recent. When I was pregnant with my dd I had a dream that my grandma visted me and she was comforting me (no words, just feelings). My grandma had been passed on for over a yr. when I dreamt that. I had been having anxiety about the pregnancy and it was SO comforting to have that dream. My grandma and I had always been very, very close.
So, no, maybe not angelic encounters. But, something extra ordinary, no sure what though.
Eli, there are Earth Angels but your sister is more an Earth Elemental.
Does she like Fairies?
|Yeah I do. They're very pretty. What a weird question.|
SO normally I don't recount this experience because it is so painful. But I think I can look at it now from a frame of gratitude and, yes, a visit from an angel even tho at the time I'd never believe it.
The days after DD was born we were both in critical condition. Emergency c b/c she lost 60% of her blood supply when my fibroids (the largest a SOCCER ball) interfered with her blood supply at 37 wks. She was in the NICU rec'ing mutiple transfusions. I hadn't even met her yet except to hear her beautiful, fragile cry in the operating room and give her a quick kiss before she was whisked away.
To say I was frightened was an understatement. I was rushed to ICU because of uncontrollable hemorraging and BP of 220/130 even though I had never had HBP throughout pregnancy. I was seizing intermitently - delerium followed by fear followed by more delerium.
Anyway, this went on for a couple days. I was pumped full of drugs and kept asking, pleading to see my daughter. She was too fragile to be brought to me - and I thought she would die without me ever holding her. They told me I was in no shape to get out of bed and that I'd have to wait until I was stronger. One nurse tried to get me up but the pain was so bad I would pass out and/or have to stop. She took my catheter out and told me it would 'compel' me to get up. Not really a nice lady, if you get my picture.
So, one night, in the dead middle of the night, a nurse I'd never seen before came to visit me. She was a warm, older, round black woman - so astonishingly kind and soft-spoken and called me 'honey' with the same inflection my grandmother used to. She told me she was going to show me how to get up without pain because my daughter needed me. She very carefully guided me through the steps of getting myself out of bed - verbally - I realize now she never touched me!
It was like she knew where my pain was. I lied on a specific spot on my side, propped with my elbow, used my knees and hands and managed to get up with minimal (relative) pain.
That morning I sat up in bed using the same technique. It took about 5 mins, but DH and the nurses were amazed.
I told them the night-nurse taught me, but my description didn't match the nurse on duty. It didn't match any nurse on the floor!
They tried to get me to lie back down, but I walked - used the toilet - and then got into a wheelchair. DH wheeled me to the NICU verrrry slowly to avoid painful bumps - and I held DD in my arms and nursed her. The great part? To see her heartbeat and BP on the monitor slow and even out as she snuggled into me!
From that point on, we were both steadily better...
So... thank you. Thank you my night-nurse angel, my grandma, whoever or whatever you are. You saved us.

|When he went in he found two elderly women dressed in their "Sunday" best, cradleing her head and soothing her as she made her way across. The owner yelled at these women that they need to be away from the body and outside. They just ignored him and kept on soothing her. He couldn't understand why they would not talk to him. So he went outside to get the police and get the ladies out, but when he came back they were gone. Nobody saw them come in or out.|
These are truly beautiful stories...
I have one.
My Step-sister-in-Law took her own life in 2002. She was suffering terribly from schizophrenia, in and out of institutions, etc. She was so sick that even her own sister knew that this could not go on much longer. The day she took her own life she went to a shooting gallery/range and asked for the last carroll so that she wouldn't be near anyone in case the bullet didn't go where it was intended. She was not an avid or experienced shooter. She was a well-reknowned artist and professor in Atlanta, GA.
But the bullet made it's way into her head. They evacuated everyone in the range. When everyone was out the owner went back into the building to attend to my ssil. When he went in he found two elderly women dressed in their "Sunday" best, cradleing her head and soothing her as she made her way across. The owner yelled at these women that they need to be away from the body and outside. They just ignored him and kept on soothing her. He couldn't understand why they would not talk to him. So he went outside to get the police and get the ladies out, but when he came back they were gone. Nobody saw them come in or out.
All of my ssil's family are eternally grateful that she had someone there to comfort her considering all her family members were thousands of miles away. After hearing that story, I will never doubt the strength and the benevolence of "angels".
