Please let me introduce myself, my name is Carmen Chapman and I am seeking people who have had encounters with angels in order to improve my guardian angel prayer. I myself have had the pleasure of meeting one. I would like to share this encounter with you and through it you will come to understand why I have written to you today.
1998 was a very hard year for myself and my family. We had gone through many trials and tribulations. Our youngest son was diagnosed having epilepsy, he has at least 100 seizures every 20 minutes through testing and CT scans it shows that his right side of his brain is slightly larger than his left and he has an abnormality in the center of his brain just to the left. He is only 2 years old. Through the year we have experienced death at our door with family and friends that have been killed on the road at different times. This is only a couple of things that have happened, I will not bore you with details.
During the year I was extremely frustrated and angry with what was happening in my life. One night, when I was praying my guardian angel prayer, I became very upset. I demanded God to give me a miracle, I did not ask. Well he did, my brother-in-law was killed in a mysterious trucking accident the very next day. I blamed myself for his death. He was a good man, and I thought that God was punishing me for being so demanding. He was killed August 13, 1998. To this day, no one can figure out what had happened. No, it was not murder. I didn’t realize it at the time but this is where my miracle begins.
One of the things that I have found very odd is that I did not and have not mourned his passing. He was a good man and a good friend. He was the type of man that would give you his last dollar to help you. I know that this is going to sound awful to most people, but I rejoiced his passing. What was going on in my mind was that he was finally home, he was with God. He was a man who deserved to be there, because he was such a good man. Strange right? That’s how I felt and still feel. As the months went on, we had lost 2 other friends and co-workers. They too died in accidents. They too were good people. You are probably wondering to yourself what does this have to do with you, right?
On December 27, 1998 I had the most extraordinary experience that I have ever had. I do not know how it happened, but I do know that it did. I can not prove it, but my heart does know the truth, and the truth must be heard. I have documented this and have it sealed away for the time being. This day I realized my guardian angel prayer was wrong.
I was sitting in my recliner in my living room with candles glowing and supplying my light. I had a tape on with the relaxing effects of the sounds of nature. My kids were down stairs playing and the silence was golden. I thought to myself that this was wonderful and that I must do this more often. The next thing I knew I was sitting on the floor with my legs crossed and my palms resting on my thighs. ( I have never meditated before, in case that is what you are thinking). Before I could realize what was happening, I found myself standing in front of a tall building. When I looked up to see the top of the building, I noticed that there was no roof. It just went up and up and up. Never have I seen anything so tall. When I looked around my surroundings on the outside I noticed that I was surrounded by a white mist. It was not a mist though, it was more like a white light.
The voice that belonged to the arm, told me quote “It is time”.
As I entered the building, I noticed that the Lobby was a beautiful room and the floors were made of a marble, I noticed that the room was completely empty with the exception of an elevator. When I finally made this observation, the doors to the elevator opened. There was no one in the elevator itself, but a man’s hand come from above the elevator and I noticed that the sleeve was made of a cloth of ancient times. The cloth was old and shabby and well worn. The voice that belonged to the arm, told me quote “It is time”. Without questioning, I stepped into the elevator and the doors closed, we preceded up to the higher floors. The voice again spoke to me “God loves you, I love you”, it was my guardian angel speaking to me. Just then the elevator doors opened, and before me was the most beautiful sight that I have ever seen. Before me was an angel. She was so beautiful! She was in a long flowing white gown and she radiated with such a beautiful white light. She had long blonde hair that was up in a soft and loose bun. Her eyes were soft and full of love. There is no TV show or movie that could even come close to reproducing the sight that was in front of me.
Before the elevator doors closed, I heard myself asking what it was they wanted from me and what is it that I am to do. The man’s voice from the elevator said to me, “There is much work for you to do, you will help those who’s hearts are broken. They (pointing to the angel) will help you.”.
The elevator doors then closed. I realized then that was my guardian angel himself. As I turned to face the angel, she said to me “yes, it was him. It is time” . Again those words, it is time. Time for what? I heard myself asking. “Come” she said. I proceeded to follow her unto the floor. I observed that this floor too was also empty. It was more like an office building. There were no walls or furniture only pillars to hold the ceiling in place. I noticed that there were many windows and I noticed that on the outside of the building it was night time. She walked me towards the windows and began to speak to me. “There is much work for you to do, are you willing to help us?” I replied to her “yes”.
“There is much work for you to do, you will help those who’s hearts are broken. They (pointing to the angel) will help you.”
He taught me how to pray for him, he told me what is the right guardian angel prayer. A prayer that is full of love and compassion. A prayer that creates light and not complains about darkness. This is a good guardian angel prayer, this is what will help me find redemption.
I realized at that moment what made her so beautiful, it was the love that was inside of her that she had for me. That was also the light that was surrounding her, it was coming from within her. The light was love! I have never in my entire life felt anything like it. It was so overwhelming. I found myself blurting out “I LOVE YOU!” her reply to me was “I know, I love you too.” To try and give you an idea of the feeling I had at the moment is to say that the day I gave birth to my children and the love I had for them does not even come close to what I was feeling that moment, and I love my children with all my heart.
She then told me to look out the window, and I did as she asked. What I saw was magnificent. I saw all the angels above the earth. They were flying around watching, once in a while one would descend down towards the earth like a falling star, the only difference was the light grew brighter instead of fading away. Such bright lights, more brilliant than the stars at night. Diamonds that shine in the light are so dull compared to these heavenly beings. I was mesmerized.
I found myself blurting out “I LOVE YOU!” her reply to me was “I know, I love you too.”
What happened next was miraculous. The angel asked me if I would like the aide of all the angels, and I said “yes”. The next thing that happened was they all started to come towards us, I backed up and was astonished, they were coming towards me so fast. They surrounded me and engulfed me, each of them was going inside and through me, I felt my spirit being cleansed and knowledge was being placed inside my soul. Knowledge, that I had no way of knowing. The message that I received the strongest is that God does love us, he loves all of us. He has not forgotten us nor will he ever. And that I need to make my guardian angel prayer everyday according the instructions.
The angel then said “It is time to go back” . I did not want to leave, I wanted to stay. Even though the room was empty of furniture, I did not want to leave the love that was there. She told me that I must go back, that there was much work for me to do. She told me that she has always been with me and will always be there for me as well as the other angels now. She told me that the angels will tell me what to do. Somehow I knew this to be true. They will guide me.
She then walked me back to the elevator and as I turned around, it was like she knew what I was going to ask. She replied “He had to go back to his kingdom, but he is with you. You have a long journey ahead of you and many will mock you, but know that God is with you and he will be your strength”. Just then the elevator doors opened and I stepped in. On the way down to the Lobby, I knew my life has changed forever. I did not know what lies before me, but I knew that I had God’s love and nothing else matters.
She told me that the angels will tell me what to do. Somehow I knew this to be true. They will guide me.
When I stepped out of the building, I was back in my living room. Still sitting on the floor. The difference now was that I knew I had changed. I still felt the love that I had felt inside the building. I called to my daughter that was downstairs and told her of what had just happened. I knew that she looked at me as if I was completely nuts. I then felt the presence of three angels in the room with us. I could not see them but I knew that they were there with us. Their presence was so large. As if they were giants, I could feel that they were smiling at me, they were pleased. I said to them “I love you and thank-you”. For the record, I was wide awake through this whole experience. I was not asleep nor was I dreaming.
The next morning, I woke up and I knew that I was to sit down and write out my experience on paper and document it. I also wrote out other information that after I was done, and I reread it, I was surprised with the outcome. I wrote things down on a belief of what was. A belief that was entirely new to me. But through it, I understood why I did not mourn the loss of my brother-in-law nor our friends. This too is documented and when the time is right the angels will give me the message to reveal it.
The angels have come to me everyday since then and have guided me. They have even played with my son (the one who has an abnormality in his brain). I have witnessed him being tickled by the angels. Laughing and rolling around on the couch trying to escape the tickles. I have witnessed him laughing at them and watching them fly around the room. Going “what’s that?” Laughing the entire time. He has seen them fly out of the patio window and when this occurs he says “bye”. Then he will calm down.
I have received a message from the angels to spread the guardian angel prayer, to help spread the message that they have from God. This is where you come in. I am looking for people who have had angel encounters who are willing to donate their stories. What I am looking for is, what you were like before the encounter, what happened during the encounter, and how the encounter changed your life. But mostly, what was the message that you received from the angels. The stories do not have to be dramatic, nor do they have to have an angels voice. It does not matter if the person even saw one, but if they felt their presence, and received a message. Any encounter that someone has with a heavenly angel is a special gift from God. Through us we can be their voice and help them to spread God’s message. If you would like to submit your story, your true identity will be kept confidential, because for many people it is hard for them to share something so sacred, and they do not wish to be ridiculed by friends and family. Each story that is submitted will have a different name.
I am a housewife and a mother of 4 children. I do not claim to be a professional writer or anything else, I am who I am and nothing more, the only thing that is special about me is that God loves me and he finds me special along with everyone else on the earth. I would not blame you if you thought I was nuts, but this really did happen. This is not the miracle I had demanded from God, but this is the miracle he gave me. Praise God for knowing me so well!
