I miss so much about California!!! I wish I could come and go. I need my own plane, pilot, and house by the beach. When you dream, dream big right!!!!

Angels surround us, they pray with us, they light the way when guiding us. There have been people in my life that have guided me to grow in the way of career, artistic creativity, and spirituality just to name a few.

A few years ago I had a much needed massage, I had so many aches and pains I wasn’t sure where to begin when asked what I wanted done. She was amazingly healing not only with the massage. Her hands felt like butter on my aching body. I had a great healing experience, felt great and returned many months later.

This time I asked about Reiki and what she knew about this healing approach. She was very familiar with it, so I went for it. The best way to describe this experience is spiritual, higher level of consciousness! I felt a love that enveloped me I had never felt before. I sensed and saw angels surrounding me creating a tunnel like space that felt warm and so protective. Today I could draw this vision as it is still very clear in my mind. I will never forget the experience years followed, years of joy that made me feel sooooo loved and protected.

Yesterday I had a hodge podge of things worked on and done at the spa. This time I opted for stone therapy which I never imagined would feel like electrifying warm glowing purple firing as the stones moved across my back. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I have previously had stones places on back without massage.

I didn’t realize that my experience was unique and that each persons experience is different. I’m a whimp for pain, but with the stones it wasn’t possible to hurt me or apply too much pressure, it felt so perfect that I asked her to press as hard as she was able. I felt one with the stones if that’s possible.

She worked on right shoulder and arm which is always sore from my photoshoots, computer work and art. Once again her hands felt like butter, more like she was touching me with a cotton ball. Suddenly my arm felt elevated as if her cotton warm hand was guiding it to raise above my side. She was doing Reiki. The pained shoulder and arm felt weightless. In fact, my whole body felt elevated I felt light as a feather and did not feel I was on top of massage table. As my arm felt elevated the angel showed up on right arm hovering over it surrounded by a purple color in a long flowing white gown no wings I might add lol. It kind of felt like her hand became the angel or her angel was guiding her hand.

I’ve not delved into the world of angels, but I truly believe they exist. Each time I’ve seen this lady for a healing massage I’ve left feeling as though her angels that guide her had a big part in my healing.

I know there are millions of Angel stories out there, I have a few more to add and will do so in this blog. Feels good to write this story. Can’t wait to hear other people’s stories and continue this Angels journaling.

Tattoos tell so much about a person, sometimes it’s like looking into their soul. I used to really dislike tattoos, but the older I am the more I have come to appreciate the artwork, the symbolism and how deep you can see into someone’s being just by looking at their tattoos. I sometimes encounter people with beautiful tattoos and no longer afraid to compliment them. At times I ask to photograph them. I recently saw a guy at CUB Foods, I wish I had my camera, he had the most amazing tattoos up to his neck all color and beautifully designed. I do not like needles and a or pain so I know I will never own a beautiful tattoo. But maybe in another life I will get huge eagle wings designed on my lower back and I mean huge not tiny little wings lol. I do love tattoos these days. I have come across people with amazing tattoos and just viewing the tattoo I pick up energy from the person hosting the art work. I can see more than they imagine. Their canvas has become my window. I am pretty intuitive, and for some reason the tattoo makes me even more in tune with their story on a level that is or may be incomprehensible. I never tell people what I see or feel, I never want to alarm people so I keep it to myself.

What an interesting place Rome is. People everywhere, I felt like a sardine in a tin can. I had to lose myself in my photography and forget that every inch of Rome is covered with cars and people. So much to see surrounded by too many energies. I love people, but the energy in Rome is such that you wonder why everyone is drawn to such a place that feels so cold and rigid. I love the photography but when you enter these “Holy places”. The feeling is so frigid. It’s hard to describe but will do so. Stay tuned. :). These are just a few things I picked up in Roma, Italia.
