You don’t have to believe me.
You don’t have to believe in angels.
But if you join me for this journey, no matter what you believe today, I guarantee you’ll be thinking differently by the end.
This is a story about my life, and it’s a story about angels. What you will read in this book is, to the best of my recollection, the absolute truth. While I have trouble keeping the timeline of what happened straight, the events themselves are crystal clear. My imagination has never been strong, but my recollections are vivid.
When people first hear my stories, sometimes they think I’m stretching the truth—until they spend some time with me. I completely understand. In many ways, my life resembles a blockbuster film. The lows are extremely low, the conflict is real and intense, and there’s a mega-super happy ending. If you have doubts, keep reading—spend a little more time with me, and you will see the truth.
Over the years, I have discovered that there are two parts of me, and these two parts are in constant battle with each other.
First, there is the part that can manifest whatever I desire, at lightning speed, by doing nothing more than wishing, imagining, seeing it as done, and putting action behind it. This is the part of me that is helped by angels—lots and lots of angels—surrounding me, protecting me, and guiding me in each moment.
This side of me is the believer. When I allow myself to reside in that part of me, I know that dreams can come true. I understand that I am, in actuality, living a dream in each moment.
Then there’s the other part of me, the part that is forever in doubt. This side considers the situation, starts to stand up, then pauses, and sits back down.
This part of me says things like:
Naaaaah. No way. Can’t do it.
You may have a similar battle going on inside you. In this book, you’ll read about the roles both these parts have played during my life, and how they have shaped who I am today. Most of the lessons I have learned in my life, as you will see, have involved a battle—or at least a negotiation—between these two sides of me.
I don’t always learn a lesson the first time it is presented. Like you, I repeat mistakes. I know if I keep trying, eventually I’ll get it. It’s encouraging to see that the amount of time it takes before I learn a lesson is shorter, now, than it used to be.
All these lessons have been written into the distinctive—and beautiful—design of my path, which you will learn about as you read this book. Your life path has its own unique design. It is my hope that, by offering you some insight into my life, you will receive insight into your own.
Whether or not you currently believe in angels, when you finish this book, I trust you will. I would be overjoyed if this book helps you to become aware of the role of angels in your own life.
I know if it had not been for my guardian angel as a child, I would have been molested behind the corner church and would have died—in an auto accident, from being asphyxiated, in a fall over a cliff—and the list goes on. I should have been dead seven times already, but angels intervened to keep me here.
Angels have intervened for me over and over again. They have kept me from harm, have helped me find my path, and have given me a better life.
For years, I wondered:
What makes me so special that angels would go out of their way to save me?
What is my purpose that I should be spared when so many others are not?
The answers to these questions and more are within the pages of this book. As you read about my experiences, you will meet my guardian angels and earthbound angels. You will hear their voices and see how they shaped my story.
As you make your way through this book, it will become apparent to you that there was a plan for my life. There were people I needed to meet and people who needed to meet me. There were vital tasks I needed to accomplish for myself and for others—including the writing of this book.
Thirty years ago, I was shown my life’s purpose. This knowing has been the inspiration for everything I have done as a speaker, a singer, a book mentor, and a publisher. Everything I have done in my life and in my business has been a preface for this book.
I was told I would write a book called Walking with My Angels.
I was told to wait for an angel voice to tell me when to begin.
I waited, and waited, and waited some more, as I went about my business living my purpose.
It was a long wait.
Not long ago, I was hiking in the beautiful mountains of Vermont with my dear friend, Amy Todisco, who happens to be a skilled life coach.
She asked me, “So, when are you going to write that angel book?”
I told her “When I get the call, so to speak. I was told I would be instructed when to write it. I’ve been waiting for twenty-nine years.”
“Oh, okay. Well, I think it’s a good time for it.”
“Yeah, you and me both.”
We continued to hike.
Then I heard a voice, from over my shoulder, say, loud and clear: It’s time.
I replied silently: It’s time for the book?
Yes, the book. It’s time.
I stopped walking. Amy looked at me questioningly.
“Amy, I just heard the voice, and you were right—it is time to write the book. Thanks for asking that question. I’ve waited so long, anticipating this day. I’m so excited!”
Amy jumped immediately into coaching mode.
She said, “That’s great. I am so excited for you. So, when will you start? Will you write daily or commit to a certain amount of hours per week? Will you set a date and time to begin?”
“As soon as I get home,” I told her, “I will get my calendar out and schedule time to write. Thanks, coach!”
I started the book that day. As I sat down to create what I call the roadmap for this book, I realized how much time this project would take. My schedule was heavy with work assisting other authors, and as I looked at my calendar for time to write, I felt overwhelmed. I was already booked out a few months. It was frustrating not to be able to dive right in.
One day, my wife, Maura, said, “You are a marathon writer, Honey. You know you can get a lot done if you sit down and write for an extended time. When are you going to block out enough days to write your book?”
“I don’t know. My schedule is completely full. I know it’s time to write, but I don’t want to cancel commitments, or shift things around. It’s all feeling a bit daunting at the moment.”
I left to run errands, and when I returned, Maura had my schedule book in her hands.
“It’s done,” she said. “I looked at what was scheduled already and found nine days that weren’t booked yet. They’re six weeks away, but the days are right here, in the schedule. Do you think you can write your book in nine days?”
“Wow, nine days?”
Because I had already written it repeatedly in my head, I was sure I could do it.
The heart of this book was written in those nine days. If you have ever written a book, you will be aware that this is incredibly fast. My hands typed at record speed as my angels assisted me, and it was a joy and a pleasure to write with them.
During those nine days, I remembered the stories I wanted to tell in sharp detail. I had vivid visions of conversations, remembering every word. It was like actually going back in time. It felt so good to experience all of it again—even the scarier times. It was a joy being taught again by my angels, and being reminded again of my purpose.
Looking back, I felt proud of all I had done to live into that purpose. Over the years, I have helped thousands of people to write their books, to elevate their mission and their message.
Now it is time for mine.
My suggestion, which comes from my own grateful heart, is that you read this book with an open heart and an open mind. This book is meant to uplift you, to raise your energy, and to take your awareness of yourself and your angel helpers to a higher level.
You have been assigned a guardian angel, whether you know it or not. If you pay attention, you will notice your angel helping you. Of course, you might not see this assistance as angelic—you might be calling it intuition, divine guidance, or inner knowing, and that’s fine. Angels don’t care what you call them as long as you listen and take action as they guide you. They are not in it for the glory or recognition.
Their main goal is to help ensure that you stay here for the time you are supposed to be here. There are so many moving parts in the course of a life, and angels are here to do what it takes to make sure you make it to your predetermined expiration date.
As you read this book and the stories within it, take time to reflect on your life and to notice. Notice the times when something happened to alter the path you were walking. These are probably some of the times when an angel has stepped in to help you.
Was there a time when you changed your routine or took another way home from work?
Have you ever had a feeling you shouldn’t do something, and you altered your course because of that feeling?
Have you ever given a friend some remarkably sound advice and thought to yourself, “Where did that come from?”
Have you ever conquered a fear that was so great and strong that you were sure you received some otherworldly help or guidance?
Have you ever had a near death experience, and lived to tell the story?
It is likely that an angel has been by your side in these moments, lending a hand. They are there, all the time, making a difference in our lives. They are usually unnoticed, and receive no credit for all they do.
Angels are among us, and they take many forms. I once had an earthbound angel stay with me for over a year. He took me from not believing in anything to believing in everything, and, let me tell you, this was not an easy mission. He would show me a miracle on Monday, and I would have myself talked out of it by Tuesday. I used to call him Job because Lord knows he had the patience of that biblical man. His mission was to save me from myself. He succeeded. I would not be alive today if it were not for him.
This book tells the story of my journey, walking with these angels. My wish for you is that you enjoy every word. I hope the words in this book awaken something within you that perhaps you didn’t know was there.
If you haven’t been aware of angels in your life, I trust that you will be inspired to notice them. And that your eyes will be opened so you can recognize the many times in your life when angels have touched you, protected you, and helped you to make choices.
If you were already aware of your angels, you will be able to experience another level of understanding and connection after reading my story. This book, above all, is about ascension and awareness. There are no accidents. This book has landed in your hands at the perfect time and for the right reasons. Allow the process of your ascension to unfold in its perfect time in the most perfect way.
