One evening I was sitting playing with a piece of white sculpting clay someone had given me, that sparkled my love for clay angels. After 30 minutes I was holding an angel with arms stretched outward, arms and wings being one. This rough looking angel spoke to something deep within myself, which was loving and encouraging me to continue practicing this sculpture, until I had it so beautiful that they would inspire others.
I am not a trained artist but I was becoming very spiritual at that time and felt that I was channeling when I did anything artistic. I trusted an inner urging of a heavenly presence to share these visions I had of the angel sculptures.
So I embarked on a journey into trust and learning to listen to my angels (intuition) regarding my life and the making of these clay angels
So I embarked on a journey into trust and learning to listen to my angels (intuition) regarding my life and the making of these clay angels. It seemed that the better I got at listening, the more wonderful spirits joined in on the quest. I have many angels with me all the time now and I can discern the difference between many personalities. They each have a different reason for working with me - all want these angels to heal, help and inspire.
The first 13 clay angels I made were very fragile and all were originals, made for individuals in mind. I mailed and gave all away - some as healing gifts for people I had never met. I could sense things about the spirit of the people I was making them for and would share this experience with those I gave the clay angels to.
When I started working on the final angel which was intended to be the first in the collection and would be made into a mold, I started having very profound experiences with my angels. Seeing, feeling and knowing their love for me and the peoples of the earth. Sharing a river of powerfully loving and healing energies, they opened me up to the possibility of heavenly communication. They have cleansed me of many old hurts, easily bringing me out to feeling brighter and more complete. Able to help others even more for having being made more whole.

I worked very hard at making this angel exactly as my inner angels wanted her to be meticulously filing until the exposed area was exactly as *they* wanted her to be.
One evening while I was sitting by myself with a grouping of candles and my angel, I was contemplating all the work I had done on her during the day. I was looking at her freshly - as the new angel she had become over the course of the day. Again, they showed me what needed to be done to her the following day to make her perfect. I was getting discouraged, more work!! I had thought she was finished. I sighed a deep heavy sigh... As soon as this feeling was in my gut only took a moment to feel my heart drop. I felt quite clearly a hand on my arm. I opened my eyes and saw nothing but felt comfort being infused into me. I felt another hand on my back and then another on my knee and leg. Another holding my head (hands on forehead and back of my head). These felt like I was really being held my many many arms and hand, comforting me, making me feel OK, gently. Then I felt as if the hands were gone, all except the first one which was on my arm and I felt a huge wave of energy, like someone was covering me with a blanket and the wave was the breeze created by the blanket being thrown over me. I was being hugged by my angel 🙂

This I sensed and the blanket feeling was her wings or her energy field or maybe it was just what *she* felt I needed at that moment to be held. My husband had been away for 5 days on a business trip at this time and I was in desperate need of a hug from someone other than my kids (I run a home day care and get many hugs and kisses every day).
The next day, I finished making her and started the process of getting molds made and reproducing her in porcelain - something I have never done and frankly was a little more than apprehensive. My angels gave me so much encouragement to carry on with this wild dream for people to own and listen to the guidance of this beautiful porcelain heavenly angel.
She still speaks to me, as I do the pouring and the fine sanding before the firing in the kiln. Many of them have symbols in the skirt and hair which I feel are intended for the people who will buy her. If you look at her and be patient, she will speak to you in whichever way you can receive her message. She will encourage you lovingly to grow in peace and love. She is 4 3/4 inches tall with a wing span of 6 inches.
Each angel is individually signed and numbered. She is make of fine porcelain, and chosen with the owner in mind. Essentially I go into my shed asking which one wants "so and so". They actually call out to me. 🙂 Sounds insane, but...it makes me happy, and it appears that they are so well accepted in the hands of their owners 🙂 , so.
In light and love,
