Chrissie Astell shares her father’s experience with angel messages
We have seen messages from the angels throughout history encouraging us to work for the ‘greater good’, while at the same time seemingly personal and meaningful to the person who channelled the message. You may know from my writing that both my parents were channels for the angelic realms and saw them often. I’d like to share this particular message given to my dad Fred. He’d been desperate to get the message out and was ecstatic when I was able to write it all into one of my books (Gifts from Angels, published by Watkins) just before he passed away. Now I’m able to share his story again with you here. It is super relevant for our time and brings a powerful message of love.
Welcome angel messages
“I was woken from a deep sleep by a woman walking across my room. Although she was in Victorian clothes, I knew by her familiar glow that she was an angel. She said: ‘My way is better than your way,’ as she passed through the wall. As I focused my thoughts and realised I wasn’t dreaming, she walked back the other way and said it again. She reappeared for the third time repeating her message and I sat bolt upright knowing something important was about to unfold.
“My room began to fill with bright light, and I felt a profound spiritual presence surrounding me. As my eyes cleared, I saw a large male figure in the corner of the room. As I watched carefully it was like a 3D film happening all around me. All my senses were enhanced and I was participating in a battle. I could hear the clash of shields and swords and smell the horses, witnessing the bloodshed of many men.”
The vision stopped, but Fred knew he would see more. “This time many soldiers were trying to march in step along a long dusty road in pairs, many limping and wounded, wearing the uniform of World War 1. They were singing ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’ and suddenly I knew that the war had been more profound than I had ever understood and that it was a far cry from any divine plan.”
Knowing that his visions always came in a series of three, Fred waited for the next.
“I could see a vision of such incredible natural beauty that it caught my breath. I found it disturbing. I felt a deep, searing pain in my heart. As I looked about at the rolling meadows, majestic trees and magnificent mountains, I could see all the countryside I hold dear to me but my heart was breaking with unbearable pain and immense sadness. Something was missing, it was eerie and silent and I noticed the colours were copper coloured and unnatural. Then I realised what was being shown to me. There was no birdsong, no flutter of wings, no movement, no sign of life.”
In an instant, Fred knew he was being shown a time in the future. He was aware that his angel guides were giving him a clear view of a time in the future when the world had suffered a terrible manmade disaster. The aftermath of potential nuclear war. He was overwhelmed and confused by what he’d witnessed then to his surprise found himself lying back and staring up at the sky.
“It had started to snow, big beautiful snowflakes swirling in front of my face, faster and faster falling everywhere. But as I watched carefully, I saw that they were not snowflakes at all, but millions and millions of tiny snowflake-sized pieces of paper. All raining down from the heavens. Miraculously, I could read them all at the same time, as if each piece was speaking to me – I could see that they had identical words written on them: ‘Love one another, as I have loved you.’”
As the vision faded and Fred tried to process his experience, to his delight he realised that he was not alone, and in the glow of bright light remaining in his room was the large angel – he was still there. The angel began singing a beautiful old song that Fred recognised from his youth. He sang the song three times so there was no mistaking the message of the lyrics: “We yearn for love the whole world over, yet the love we seek is always there.”
Meditate and channel universal love
Join the Angels of Love and receive signs from angelic realms
1 Sit comfortably in a quiet space and if possible light a candle to focus on connecting with the angels.
2 Scan through your body as you breathe, relaxing any tension you may feel.
3 Imagine your space filling with a vibrant pink mist, rising around and enfolding your body, filling you with loving, positive energy.
4 Call upon Archangel Chamuel and the Angels of Love to come closer to you now. Let go of any sense of unworthiness or lack of self-love, knowing that you are loved and valued by God and the angels.
5 The angels invite you to step forward into their radiant light. Feel the warmth of the rays of love from their hearts to yours as they surround you. Take it in.
6 One of the angelic beings reaches towards you and offers a beautiful deep pink rose representing the unity of your heart with the angels. It is a promise of everlasting love and support. As you accept the gift, thank the angels and stay for a moment in that sense of love and acceptance. In this loving space, you may ask for answers.
7 As you watch the rose, its petals begin to slowly unfurl and you can feel your own heart opening too.
8 In the centre of the rose, there is a drop of dew like a crystal ball. As you look deep into the light of the dewdrop you may see a vision, a symbol or colour. You might hear or smell something. Whatever pops into your mind, however mundane it might seem, stay with it without analysing. Be open to a sign, message or vision without judgement.
9 When you are ready simply breathe deeply and return slowly into your quiet space. Remember this light of love is always with you.
