There are as many and varied understandings about what an angel is as there are people.  I do not presume to be an expert, nor do I hold myself out as one.  I can only share my experiences with these messengers of the LightWorld, as they are sent by the Creator of All that Is to uplift us and encourage us as we struggle to understand our place in the Universe.  If you do an online search using just the word “angels”, you will get at least 33,999,088 results in 0.10 seconds.

There are books, massive websites, movies, music, and artwork all devoted exclusively to these unseen messengers.  People have devoted their lives to spreading the word about angels.  You can attend wonderful workshops about angels:  how to connect with them, how to communicate with them, how to invoke them.   There are angel cards, you can get an angel reading, even.

So I ask myself daily, since this whole project began, why am I being called to add to this mosaic? I know that someday the reason for this blog will become apparent.  For now, I will continue to put energy into it to help it grow.  The postings won’t be as frequent as those on the primary blog, but I will endeavor to allow the angels to inspire me, to let me know what they would have me share with you here.  I am but the instrument, and this project is definitely not born of my intellect.

I will write when I am inspired to, and will allow this site to unfold according to the Higher Will. I may share some of the angel artwork that has been coming to me in the past few years.  I hope that it will be of benefit to whose who are in need of inspiration and encouragement.  Thank you for taking the time to visit here.

In the Company of Angels- Notes on Today’s Event

From my Perspective

I participated in my very first webinar today, and will admit I was a little nervous.  It was almost like when just before I had to get up onstage to sing in front of a crowd of people.  I had a few butterflies, but they very quickly vanished as the call began.  Randy is a calming influence, and I was grateful that he has so much experience putting on this type of event.

I will say I felt like most of the time I was babbling.  I certainly hope I was coherent.  One of the things that  happens when I get into high energy situations, especially when Spirit wants to speak, is it makes it difficult to stay focused in my body, and the brain seems to go on autopilot.  Thank goodness I’d had the common sense to make some notes beforehand to keep myself on track. Somewhat, at least.

I worked on my presentation a bit earlier in the day, and as I was adjusting some of the notes on Mount Shasta, I could feel the gentle shift that meant the door to the LightWorld was being opened.  I have been told I am a translator for the Language of Light, and sometimes I feel like it’s a ‘on call all the time position’.  I told God 20 years ago when I was awakened that if I was to be a messenger, that if I could be placed in front of whomever it was I was to deliver the message to, then I would do my part to deliver it.  I will confess here that I did not  live up to that contract today.

In the Company of Angels – The Continuing Story

Published March 18, 2012 by mediumjuliamarie

When I arrived at the house Friday evening, we sat and talked, catching up on things going on in our respective lives.  Randy had been very busy working with and supporting other metaphysical presenters, and I had been focused on rearranging my life in order to allow more time for  painting and being home instead of out on the road.  I became obsessed with angels about four years or so ago when I was sitting in my booth at the Denver Metaphysical Show, and things were slow.  I do personalized artwork and a reading with the art piece, but the energy just wasn’t working for some reason.

I asked what I needed to do to shift things, and heard very clearly a simple message:  offer to draw their angels.  I didn’t have anything to lose, and besides, I wasn’t doing anything anyway.  I drew up a sign that read “Show Special: Angel Drawings $15.-“.  I barely had the sign up and had settled back in my chair when I had a line of people at my table.  I did seven or eight drawings within the next couple of hours.  Since then, I have offered angel drawings, and especially enjoy doing them for children, because the colors I ‘see’ and choose are usually the colors they later tell me they’ve ‘imagined’ their angel was.  By this simple act, I am able to validate their experience, to make it ‘real’ for them.  And that is some of the most powerful work I could do.

Since 2010, I have been really impressed to start painting the angels.  I don’t know why, or what they are for, or how the painting process differs from  the pastel work I do at shows, but the urge is very strong, and traveling so much doesn’t leave time to do the painting.

Back to the story.  By the end of the evening, we really were no closer to understanding what it was all about.  I only knew that we needed to be in the same space for the information door to open, which was a clue that this was a project that would require both our energies to accomplish.  That knowing was the reason I’d driven all that way.   Although we didn’t really have a clear grasp on things, I believe we both understood we’d been thrown together for a  Higher Purpose. We decided to sleep on it, and to meet the next day.  There were a few hours available in the morning, and that gave me the afternoon to visit a friend I knew in town.

When we sat down the next morning, we sort of looked at each other. I suggested we just get quiet and see what came.  Out of that silence and into my mind I heard very clearly the words: “In the Company of Angels”.  It gave me goose bumps to say it aloud.  We both were pretty excited to at least (maybe) have an idea or a theme for this joint effort.  I didn’t get a very clear sense of what was supposed to happen at this event, however and that part kind of worried me.  But I am a master at doing what comes next, and I was very happy to at least have gotten SOMEthing.

We tossed some ideas around, and had some discussion about a lot of things related to the project, and then I spent the balance of the day visiting the hot spots in town.  It didn’t take too long to get that done. We had a brief meeting the following morning, and then I set out for the drive home the next day.  It was an interesting journey, as it seemed to me that just by committing to do this project, the floodgates were opened.  I could not believe the emotional roller coaster I was on, nor  did I understand  where it was coming from.  I can look back on it and see the perfection there.  For what was to come, clearing of some baggage was definitely in order.  And the work started immediately.  I was exhausted by the time I got back home, and slept pretty deeply that night.

When I awoke in the morning, the ideas were coming so fast I had to grab a notebook and start scribbling.  Over the course of the next few weeks, whatever it is we are building began to take shape.  That is still in process, but I am beginning to have some sense of exactly what it is Spirit would have me do.  I also know that all of what I think I know is subject to change.  The first webinar about this event is Sunday, March 18th at 1:00PM my time.  It will be available for listening afterwards as well, however, and is free. If you are interested in the details, just click here.

I promised another installment today.  I have kept my promise.

In the Company of Angels – How Following Spirit is Unfolding This Project

Published March 17, 2012 by mediumjuliamarie

I would like to take a moment to share some of the story about  how this came about.  It  is a direct result of living my life according to the impetus of my guidance without needing to have full understanding of why I was being inspired to do something.  Hindsight in these cases is truly 20/20, for it is when we look back that we can see with clarity the true beauty of that Divine Design. Before I begin the story-telling, I wish to extend an invitation to any who are curious or who are feeling called to do so to join us in our first webinar this coming Sunday, March 18, 2012.  Details can be found by clicking on the link below.

What I can say about this event is it is Spirit-guided and directed by a Company of beings of far greater Light than my humble self is able to generate (at least at this level of awareness).  Much of what this is about cannot yet be revealed, but then as humans we do love a mystery!  The photo above does provide a clue, however.  The event will be at the base of majestic Mount Shasta in Northern California in September of this year. ITCOA –In the Company of Angels  was an idea that took form organically, and I will tell that story here so readers can see how the Spirit can move in our lives, and how we play such an important part in the unfolding of the Divine Plan if we just do what we are prompted to do.  One step at a time, we will be led to where it is we are supposed to be, if we can just get out of our own way long enough to keep walking forward in the right direction.  If you would like more information about this event, please click here.

Back Story – The Beginning

In early 2010, I was suddenly overcome with the idea I needed to get some additional training in Past Life Regression.  I already had certification, so I didn’t really understand the impetus, but followed that energy anyway.

In May of 2010, I ended up in a little town  attending a week-long training as a  Past Life Regression Counselor.  I made the decision just before the training was to start, and there was a whole series of things with the facilitator that led to it being in that location instead of in Sedona, AZ.  It’s not likely that I would have traveled there to do the training, but I would get in my car and drive to a nearby state.  So I did.

Five minutes after I arrived at the Bed and Breakfast some of us class members were staying at, another student showed up.  The week went quickly, and conversation was had with this fellow student about the possibility of working together.  I was excited, as I’d been told I would be doing presentations to larger groups.  I have been very comfortable in my little pond, and was reluctant to be thrown out into the big ocean alone, so to me it was perfect that there would be someone else to share the burdens and the blessings of those larger gatherings with, at least the first time out.

We made some preliminary plans, and actually discussed  a potential joint effort.  Although we built it, they did not come.  I was a bit confused, as it seemed to me there was something to be done there together.  When something falls as flat as that did, though, it certainly bears looking at.  So I did.  Perhaps I had made an error in reading the energy.  Maybe my antenna was broken or something.   A little tip for all of you who are working at following your guidance:  If it feels like you are pushing the river with something, you probably are.  When you figure that out, the best thing you can do is just quit paddling upstream.  Let go, and just let the current of your life carry you along for a while until you can get your bearings again.

We kept in touch, but both of our lives are pretty busy.  We did trade regressions just to practice, but that was pretty much all.  I visited that area and did some readings early in 2011.  I had broken my foot in October of 2010, and totally understood that part of the reason for that was to slow me down.  It did.  I took some time to look at my life, and reassess where I was devoting my time.  I made some changes, eliminating things that were eating up my time and energy and yielding little in the way of a sense of peace in my Spirit.  That process continues.  Each layer, I move more out and feel so much better.

In December of 2011, just when I had become comfortable with moving forward as I always have with whatever Spirit would have me do  next, a telephone call came from my Past Life Regression classmate.  I will be honest, it surprised me.  We’d not spoken in a while.  We meet people, we learn from them, we move on most of the time.  Once in a great while a gift of authentic, deep friendship comes our way.  When I find a gem like that, rare and beautiful, I do my best to treasure it.  You know who you are, you jewels in my crown.  I love you and treasure your presence in my life.  And now the whole world knows it, too.

”I feel we need to do a workshop or something together,” the voice on the other end of the phone said into my ear.

”I know,” I said, “I’ve been feeling that since we first spoke, but figured since there’s not been any progress, I  concluded that wasn’t going to happen.”

By the end of that conversation, we had made plans to meet within a couple of weeks.  Our schedules did not allow for each of us traveling half the way and meeting in between, which is what we’d done before. At that time, I didn’t have the ready money to  pay for a hotel either.  A dear human angel (you know who you are) opened her house to me, and made it possible to keep this very important appointment.  Did I know what we were even going to be discussing?  No.  I only knew there was some sort of timing element involved, and waiting until April of 2012 (the time when both our schedules were freed up enough to permit a halfway meeting) would mean we would miss the doorway, the gateway, the boat, whatever analogy you choose to use here.  This meeting needed to happen sooner rather than later, and I was the one with the time to do the driving. So I did.  Because it was what I was being asked to do next.

And the rest of this story will be written tomorrow, so you’ll have something more to read over the weekend.
