Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
~ Hebrews 13:2, The Holy Bible. New International Version (c) 1984
Today I would like to share an experience that I had just yesterday. I ask you now to please pass this along to your friends because you never know when an angel may stop by and offer you a test of your compassion.
I had just seen my GP for my quarterly scolding over my blood work & high triglycerides, but this time they were better, 200, so he was happy, I was happy. The lab is right near his office, which is across the street from the hospital. So, on Lab Day I treat myself to Dunkin Donuts, which is literally a 2 minute drive away. Then on Doctor Visit Day I also treat myself to DD. Usually, this will occur all within the same week, as it did this week. So I had already gone to DD on Monday.
The way the parking lot is arrange is weird. You pull in & the lot is HUGE and along my left is one strip mall, directly in front of me is a 2nd strip mall. There is a bridal boutique, nail salon, Mexican bakery, and so on. Nothing out of the norm. To the left of all that is a stand-alone Dunkin Donuts that is somewhat isolated all alone on the left-hand side of the parking lot.
As I pulled up with DD on my left & I am looking for a space I park right next to the DD building because in the morning the entire area next to DD is covered in shade. This way my car doesn’t get too hot while I’m inside drooling over the donuts & making my 2 choices. So, I see the wall, the ENTIRE wall, and it’s normal, just a gray wall. I pull into a space so I’m still facing the wall that had been totally blank not 2 seconds before when I spied the parking space. However, when I look up after pulling my car into the vacant space (the only empty space up against the building) I see a Hispanic man standing there in a white t-shirt & khaki pants. He is looking past me across the parking lot. Meanwhile, I’m hoping for no cat calls as I would have to walk right past him.
I get out of my car & approach him since I have to walk right in front of him to get into DD. He says, “Good morning” and smiles. I say “good morning,” then he looks at me & I see such a WOUNDED look in his eyes, I mean, even great actors often cannot fake a look in their very eyes, you know? This guy looked like even though he was clean & well kept, that he had been going through hell. So I kind of paused right in front of him and then he went into a little speech asking for my help. He told me he’s a construction worker & yard laborer, but that where they hang out to get hired for the day, that lately some bosses were no longer showing up & so fewer men were being chosen, & he’s older so he hasn’t worked since Monday.
The look in his eyes is what got me. I don’t see how he could be faking it and lying to me. There was a huge scandal in the Houston area a few months ago as “homeless” people on the street corners near on-ramps for a major highway through town weren’t really homeless & they were in fact clearing at least $40,000/year by begging. Several were exposed and now that problem has decreased greatly & I don’t see them out much anymore. But this guy, his EYES. So I reached into my wallet as he went on telling me he’s got 3 kids, their ages, & I’m nodding & saying things like,”Oh, is that so??” and, “ah, that’s sweet” (something his little girl did for his wife). I only had $8 cash, so I gave him $3 knowing my 2 donuts & coffee would run me near to $4.
He thanked me and then the look in his eyes suddenly changed. Instead of the despair
I had just seen I saw a LIGHT. I have NEVER EVER seen that in ANYONE’S eyes before in my life. It was like someone had flipped a switch & a light bulb had turned on inside his head & the light from it was now shining out through his eyes. He then said, “God bless you,” and as he did I felt something. I don’t know what it was. I can’t even describe it, but it was all along my back. Sort of like a wave of energy? I really don’t know. I was shocked & managed to stammer out, “God bless you, too & God bless your family.” He smiled every so sweetly when I said that & bowed his head in gratitude.
I went into DD kind of freaked over feeling that energy & then thought, NO, I can get donuts another day. I turned RIGHT AROUND to give that guy my last remaining money, which was a 5 dollar bill. He was gone! I looked all around. NO man. Not anywhere. Only about 4 seconds MAX had passed. He was on foot. I never heard a car start up. So, WHERE did he go?????? I ran to the street, which is only about 30 yards away from where I had parked. No man. No one was walking along the street. No one was in the parking lot. I peered into surrounding cars & they were all empty. There is NO WAY that man could have made it anywhere in just 4 seconds.
My dad had several similar experiences over the years. One I well remember because my mother and I were with him. We were walking into a Ponderosa steak house for dinner. In front was a homeless man who had no legs. He asked Dad for money. My parents never had much, and honestly, just enough to get by on, but ANYTIME that ANYONE asked my dad for help he NEVER said no. He reached into his wallet & handed that man a twenty dollar bill. My mom gasped, but Dad held up his hand to shush her. The man thanked Dad & then told him matter-of-factly that he would pray for us. My dad then said, “well, we need money, too” and the man smiled, nodded, and said, “Done!” He then pointed to his absent legs and said to me, “This is what war does. Don’t forget.” I never have.
Three days later Dad won $8,000 in the Illinois State Lottery. He was firmly convinced that man had been an angel because after that he began to find money everywhere he went. I’m not talking quarters, dimes, or other loose change. I’m talking about nothing ever smaller than a five dollar bill. This new skill started about a week after he won the $8,000 and he told me it was the angel with no legs who was putting the money in his path. Two months later it was Halloween and Dad took me trick-o-treating, just like every year. However, this year was very different. Every new block we began to walk along Dad would find money. By the time I was done in our neighborhood collecting my candle Dad had found various dollar amounts that totaled nearly $100!! Dad then took me aside and said, “don’t forget that man at Ponderosa. You saw an angel, not a man. Remember, angels come to test us and it’s your job to never fail a test.”
I’m hoping I passed my test yesterday 🙂
I shared this experience with the Facebook friends in my Magickal Musings group. One of them named Sama commented, and halfway through her comment the tone completely changed and I realized she had begun to unwittingly channel a message from Spirit, then she posted a second comment saying she didn’t know where all that came from and that she felt a slight vibration throughout her entire body during the experience. When you channel, as I channel Archangel Michael on a somewhat regular basis, the entity you are channeling has a much higher vibration than you do, especially if it’s an Angel or other highly evolved being like an Ascended Master, for example. For us to be able to hear them in order to channel their words they must first raise our own vibration a little so that we can basically meet them halfway, then we’re able to hear them and write down their words or verbally share them, whatever the situation may be at the time. The vibrating Sama felt was the sensation one feels when channeling and their vibration is being raised. I used to feel this all the time in the beginning of my channeling relationship with Michael, which started back in 1998, but I haven’t felt it recently. Perhaps I’ve just gotten accustomed to it by now or maybe after all those channeling sessions my vibration has remained slightly raised, I don’t know. Here is what Sama channeled from Spirit for me, and it brought tears to my eyes:
That man was a blessing, just like you are to everyone you help.
The Angels have smiled on you and acknowledged your hard work and caring nature.
You are a blessed soul, like so many others, but you truly shine.
Bless You ♥
May God/dess and the Angels bless us all.
