This month I completed the angel certification program with Charles Virtue. Doreen Virtue, his mother, is someone whose work I have been following and I love her books! When I heard that her son (surely one of her greatest creations!) was coming to Hong Kong, I had to attend!
I started connecting with angels in 2005 when I was living in London. It was a time when I was questioning my direction in life. I began reading lots of books about angels and asking for signs and guidance. I started following the work of Diana Cooper and was guided to attend a presentation that she gave about Atlantis. I have always been interested in the legend of Atlantis and it was a memorable evening spent with like-minded people. When working with angels, we all experience times when we wonder if it is “just our imagination” so the opportunity to share our feelings with others is a wonderful part of the process. At the end of the evening, I was able to meet Diana and she signed my book with the message “Joanna – it is time to fly!” Whenever I have doubts or question my path, I just open that book and am inspired to continue!
In 2006, I attended the Angel Awareness day event with Diana at Hampton Court Palace. The theme was ‘Healing of the waters’ and we released rose petals into the river that we had blessed with our angelic prayers. It was during this event that I first heard the angels sing. As a group, we had all been singing in the garden room to welcome the angels before moving into meditation. I heard the most beautiful angelic voices above me! As usual, I started to question whether I had really heard it or if I was imagining it but when Diana asked if anyone else had heard the angels singing I knew I was not alone! I wonder why we always doubt ourselves?
Fast forward to 2010 and I decided to take the angel certification program with Charles. For those of you that have been following my blog, my writing is about opening up my heart and expressing my true self. I have always been shy about working with the angels for fear of what others will think of me. The course with Charles has helped me to work through these blocks and I can already feel a huge shift in myself. We learnt how to deepen our connection with the angels and how to give angel card readings for others. We were also fortunate enough to experience a past life regression with his partner Tina and this has helped me to realise that a large part of my fear is connected to one of my past lives.
I met so many amazing people and am happy to have made lots of angel friends! I received so much encouragement from these new friends, and of course from the angels, for the book that I am writing and I am so grateful. The course definitely gave me the ‘kick-start’ that I needed to stop procrastinating and to move forward! When I got home from the first day of the course, my husband had bought me a surprise birthday gift – a new laptop! Wow! I am so lucky and I have no excuses now! He said that he bought it on the spur of the moment so I like to think that the angels guided him into the shop! The book project continues – thank you angels!
