I finished reading the Chicken Soup for the Indian Soul Book of Miracles yesterday and posted my review yesterday ( Read my review here).
I gave it a 3.5/5 and shared my general impression about the book. I saved this bit for a separate post because I thought it needed to be handled differently than the rest of the book.
The book is divided into 12 parts and the very first story will stay with me for the rest of my life.
The story is called ‘Angelic presence’ under the first topic ‘Signs From Above’ by Seema Agarwal. In that story, Seema has explained her experience with the angel therapy – ‘The Archangel Michael‘ in particular.
According to her, He (Archangel Michael) protects and guides those who call upon him. We can even ask him for signs that he is actually with us.
The signs are varied like an inner gut feeling, a thought or physical signs like seeing feathers, encountering the name Michael, the picture of Archangel Michael, a rainbow in the sky, a shooting star, angel-shaped clouds, flashes of blue and purple lights, any number in trio like 111,222,333,….
When I read this list, I really wanted to put it to test. I am a Reiki Channel and believe in angels but I have never really had (or registered) any encounter with them.
Somehow all others seemed possible and too generic but the appearance of Trios was something that I thought would definitely stand out and prove to me the presence of The Archangel Michael.
That night I read a few more stories from the book and before going to sleep I asked The Archangel Michael to give me protection and show me PHYSICAL signs over the course of a week that he was with me.
I dozed off.
That night I woke up feeling very thirsty. I went to drink a glass of water and when I came back I couldn’t fall asleep. After waiting for some time, I decided to go to the window and look outside.
I followed my instinct and saw that it was snowing. And then I remembered that I had asked for one last snowfall before the winter ended in Seoul (as I am apprehensive about the way my life is going to change by next winter). I think it was the 19th of February.
It was the last snow of winter!
That is not the only little prayer that I got answered. After a few minutes of looking at the snow I decided to click a picture from my window. I switched on my iPad and it was 3:33am. A chill ran down my spine followed by a sudden sense of calmness. I clicked a few pictures and then went back to sleep.
The snow had melted by 10 next morning and I went about my routine not thinking too much about the previous night. My husband called from his office when I was having lunch. When I disconnected his call, we had talked for 1 minutes 11 seconds! The rest of the day passed normally.
The next day, I logged in my blog and one of the pingbacks/comments was by someone called Michael. I couldn’t help smiling at the coincidence. For the next four days also I kept on encountering triple digits once or twice per day. It gave me joy and helped me feel protected since I live far away from my country and know very few people out here.
I thanked The Archangel Michael for taking care of me and also the writer of this story, Seema Agarwal.
I had gotten interested in angels right when I received my Reiki attunement. I am much more interested in learning Angel therapy now. I am definitely going to check out Doreen Virtue‘s books on Angels and Angel Therapy in future.
Do you believe in angels? Have you felt their presence?
