“I have always been fascinated by the human desire to connect with the angelic realms. They appear in almost every culture, faith and religion, since the dawn of mankind. In this rapidly changing world of uncertainty, one thing is for sure: a universal source of guidance and love is easily accessible. We have been given the gift of angels. A gift for us to accept with gratitude, or to ignore. The choice is ours.” Chrissie Astell
