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.

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