My Guardian Angel’s name is Thomas. My Spirit Guides are Ethos and Addie. I’ll explain later how I happen to know this.
Raised in a Catholic household, we were always aware that we had a Guardian Angel looking out for us, 24/7. I imagined they looked a great deal like the statues of angels in our church, St. Rose. I didn’t think of my angels daily. Not very often really. Not until after I moved from Ohio to Atlanta in 1988. I was really on my own for the first time in my life, in a big metropolitan area, 600 miles from home. I needed reinforcements! My mom would send me a Guardian Angel pin periodically. This was her thing. I kept one in my car. Since Atlanta is a driving city and I would usually spend over an hour in my car for my daily commute, this seemed like the most logical place for protection. The other angel pins are in my home. Naturally.
My parents started driving down to visit, probably a year after I moved to Atlanta. I was worried about their 12 hour or longer drive, so I would say a prayer for my Guardian Angel to watch over them. Little did I know, my sister, Janine, was doing the exact same thing. We realized we were both doing this a few years later. It is a part of my routine, when I travel or when a family member or loved one is traveling, to ask my Guardian Angel to watch over us all. It gives me piece of mind. Which is a good thing in this crazy world we live in.
My Guardian Angels and Spirit Guides communicate with me in a variety of ways.
After I bought my first home in 2002, I started hearing my name called. Usually in the early twilight of dawn. It woke me out of a deep sleep, it was that loud. And clear. Thinking about it later, I couldn’t tell if the voice was male or female. Androgynous? That made me lean towards the angelic. Since I lived in the South, I heard from a few, very southern people, do not answer the voice! It is Beelzebub. Or the Devil to you and me. Well, that scared me and made me question myself. My mom’s theory was that someone was thinking about me or praying for me and that’s what I heard. But at 5:00 a.m.? It comforted me to think it was my Guardian Angel, letting me know they were there. Better than the Devil coming after me!
I hear doorbells too. I have heard them for years. But no one is ever at the door. Just heard one this past Sunday, as I was waking up from a nap on the couch. My boyfriend Jeff was in the house and he didn’t hear a thing. I know that I am clairaudient. I am trying to development this gift further. Stay tuned for that!
Do you ever see repetitive numbers? I see ‘111’ all the time. On clocks. Treadmill distances. My birthdate. The exit to my home in Atlanta was #11. Jeff and I text back and forth now when it is 11:11 or 1:11. I don’t stare at the clock until that particular time pops up. I just happen to glance at my watch, or my computer, and it is there. It doesn’t happen every day, but several days a week, at least. You can Google the meaning of repetitive numbers – 111 means that your thoughts are manifesting instantly, so when I see this number I think of something I need in my life and stay positive. Repetitive numbers are your angels communicating a message. A good book to find meanings of numbers is by Doreen Virtue, ‘Angel Numbers 101’. When I pray for guidance or ask for help in finding a solution, I usually start seeing 111 everywhere. It means I am on the right track, so this is a very positive experience for me.
Back to Thomas, my Guardian Angel, and Ethos and Addie, my Spirit Guides. Addie will be introduced in a later chapter.
I was first introduced to Thomas and Ethos during a Past Life Regression, back in April of 2010. I know what you are thinking – what in the world is a Past Life Regression. I will get into the details in the next chapter, but for edification, you are put into a meditative state or hypnosis and walked through steps to reach a past life. You experience your death in each of the lives and what happens to your soul. It is f-r-e-a-k-y if you have never experienced it. Amazing. I always wondered about a few phobias and things that bothered me in this life, things that have carried over from previous lives. But I digress. During one of my past life experiences, I met Ethos, my Spirit Guide. Let me just tell you that I was so emotional when I met him that I started sobbing uncontrollably. I was so happy to see him again! (This is all on tape by the way.) He looks like Socrates. His task is to guide me along on the path I have chosen in this life. I am constantly asking Ethos if I am on the right path, or to protect me from harm. Spirit Guides are typically not Angels. They were alive on earth at one point but chose to be a guide instead of incarnating again. I asked Ethos when I met him who my Guardian Angel was, and he said ‘Thomas’. I didn’t get a chance to meet Thomas then, but I see him all around me. By his signs.
