Angel Episode in Matanglawin

Angels around us No Comments »

In my previous post, I have mentioned that I was supposed to be interviewed by a researcher of Pinaka, a TV show in Channel 11, about my angel collection. I was contacted by Aubrey, one the show’s researcher but apparently the said interview didn’t happen. Nevertheless, my love for angels and my small angel collection continuous to flourish. :)

About 4 months ago, my post entitled, My Angel Finder, received another comment. It was from Phillip Manalang, a researcher of Matanglawin. Matanglawin is anchored by Kuya Kim Atienza, which airs every Sunday at 9:30AM.

In his comment, he said that the show will have an angel episode and they are interested about my angel collection and my personal encounters with my guardian angel. :)

We had a phone interview first and the day of the shoot has been set. The interview was done at our house. Since we have a pretty small house, my angel figurines are not on display anymore. Once in a while though, I take them out of their storage box and clean them up. That time, since a video shoot will be done, I need to put them on display again. :)

I really had a good time while cleaning the angels. It was like reuniting with my babies. :)

The date of the shoot has arrived and it actually lasted for about 3 hours! Before the interview started, I prayed and asked my guardian angel’s help in having a good interview. I would like to share to the audience the joy of accepting and recognizing guardian angels in our life as God’s special guard for us. In that way, our faith in God will grow deeper. :)

Matanglawin’s Angel Episode was aired last November 18, 2012. :)

Ciao! :)

My Angel Finder

I should have had an interview with QTV 11′s Chances Are staff this evening about my angel collection. But according to Aubrey, there were some changes made by the producer and the said interview will not happen anymore. Well, that’s fine. Anyway, there had been good things that happened for that “supposed to tete-a-tete” with Chances Are. :) One of the good things was that, we’re able to maintain the cleanliness and ordiliness of the house! :) Well, my mother is really glad about it!

Then, as I prepare my collections for that supposed interview, I realized that having an angel collection is something that can be considered as stress reliever. As I brushed the dust from my little angels, I felt a very calm and relaxing feeling. You bet, I didn’t get easily angry! :)

As I checked on my clippings and articles about angels, I thought that it wasn’t good enough to be called as a collection. So, I asked my youngest sister, Pauline to accompany me a bookstore and find some books about angels.

We went straight to the religious books as soon as arrived into the bookstore. It had been 30 minutes already but we can’t really find any book about angel! As in! Then, I spoke to my angel and told him to help us find one. As I turned into another shelf, I immediately found a book entitled, “Who is your Guardian Angel”. I checked on the price but it was around Php500! I told my sister that maybe the book could be on its discounted price. It wasn’t look brand new. At the back of my mind I was praying hard that the book should be on sale.

When I verified it from the counter, I learned that the book is only Php103 only! It was an amazing incident! :)

Well, even if the interview didn’t happen, I will continue to post my angel experiences here on my blog. It may not be as extraordinary as it is, but these experiences happen to let us know that they do exist. That we can count on them no matter what. :)

Angel loves French Fries!

Angels around us, movies 4 Comments »

Well, I guess only in movies. :) I have not collecting angel stuff yet when I first seen this movie. I was in grade school, still. I haven’t watch the movie in cinema, for this movie was released in theaters sometime in 1987. I was only 6 years old then! :) Even at a young age, I have love angels already. Date with an Angel, is one of my all-time favorite movies. The story is about an angel who fell from heaven to take Jim Sanders soul back to heaven. Well, check the plot synopsis here.

Date with an Angel

Emmanuel Beart played the angel. While Phoebe Cates played the fiancee of Jim Sanders (played by Michael Knight). One of my favorite scenes in the movie was when Jim’s buddies, kidnapped her using a french fries as a bait. Oh, how she loves french fries! :)

Emmanuelle Beart

Well, even though she’s an angel, they still ended up together. What happened? Well, you’ve got to see the movie! :)

Angelic Collection

Angels around us 4 Comments »

It was a happy feeling when someone appreciate my everyday stories that I share here. :) One of my readers, Aubrey, happened to drop by my journal one day and found my fascination about angels. Well, its been a while since I have shared my stories about our angels. Aubrey contacted me and asked about my fascination about these heavenly creatures.

I started to recall my obsession with angels then. Until, I finally establish a very close relationship with them. I just finished reading an article about our guardian angels and would you believe that God sends us legions of angels to protect us!?! Well, God really treats us like VIPs, right? :)

When Aubrey called me, she asked if I have collections of angels. Well, I certainly do. It is not a big collection though, but I managed to have around 30 pcs of angel figurines. This lead me to dig into my “abubots” and found interesting items about my addiction with angels!

I have always been an angel believer. If I remember it correctly, I started collecting angel figurines when I was in highschool. I just love them! :) My little collection grew in numbers when I was in college. But, we experienced financial difficulties then that my collection got affected. :(

Anyway, my love to these little babies led me in naming most of them. :) The first angel figurine I had was named Frannie. It was the same name I called my diary, then. I just learned about this again today when I scrumbled through my “boxes”. :)

Then, I had this 3 little girls which I named after my favorite names, Emmanuelle, Mikaela and Gabrielle. Would you believe that when I gave birth to my little girl, I have not used any of these names?!? Well, my daughter’s name origin has its own little amazing story. :)

Then I have these “band of angels”. I tagged them band of angels because they play instrument and one of the angels (which I named Princess Anne) is singing. I named her Princess Anne after my name. I have been a “royal” fan, too. :) The girls are Yana (named after my sister Pauline), Princess Anne and Jane (named after my sister Patricia Jane), respectively. Then the boys are John Gabriel, Prince Leonard (named him after ney, who plays drums very well!) and Paul Michael, respectively. The boys name (except for Prince Leonard) are my two favorite names which I intend to name my baby if ever God will bless me with a baby boy. :)

Band of Angels

Angelic Band

I’ve got few more significant angels which are nameless. I have one angel figurine who is sitting on an airplane. I’ve got that one because I have this big dream of working abroad, then. But, when I become a mother, plans changed. I would really miss my daughter if I work abroad.

Part of my collection also were clippings about angels, prayer books and books about them. I told Aubrey that I had a angel pin but when I checked on my things, it was actually an earing. I guess I lost the other pair for I only got 1 pc of the pair. :(

I had my calling cards and address stickers with angel themes, too. And, because of this angel-addiction, I remember my projects in college were all decorated and designed with angels! :)

I have forgotten about it already. I was smiling to myself this afternoon as I reminisce, while I arrange the little collection I have. I felt amazing and calm the whole day. The angelic ambience in our house is really wonderful. :)

Well, I know that my collection will start growing in numbers again. That’s for sure! :)

Ciao! :)

I say thank you Lord

My shift schedule at work is 2AM-11AM. When I leave the house, almost all my neighbors are still in deep slumber. My sister and I had a little chat earlier this morning while I was still in the office. She told me that, one of our neighbors forgot that he was cooking something and left it. Their house is just a house away from our apartment. My mother noticed a thick smoke coming out of their house. She then ran to another neighbor who went over the said house and found out that the food is already burning.  Maybe, it was just minutes away and the house would have been on fire if my mother had not notice the smoke from that house.

I talked to my mother about it this evening and she said that, if it wasn’t for my daughter who bragged her to buy her breakfast that she wouldn’t discover it. God sent a little angel to save us and our looban from fire.

I did say a thanksgiving prayer. That wasn’t the first time that a similar incident happened in our compound. There had been incidents like that in the past and God has always been on guard and that nightmare wouldn’t happen.

It has always been my habit to pray before God to keep our house and the whole neighborhood from harm especially from fire. I know that God hears my prayer. I always tell Him not get tired listening for my pleas. I know that inspite of all my shortcomings and not being perfect, God’s love for me, for us, never ceases.

Well, I would be praying harder for our safety. And I will never forget to say thank you Lord for everything. That inspite of my imperfections, my sins, I know in my heart that I love God so much..

Ciao! :)

Ofcourse, Angels exist..

My dear friend Mami Grace and I had a small chat before she went out to lunch with her husband. She said that Nicole, their baby fell down the bed and got a bruise on her face. Then I shared my own experience with my baby. Then out of nowhere, I uttered, “siguro totoo ang guardian angels.” Ofcourse they exist! I never doubted their existence in my entire life. I know they’re just around me. Infact, I had several encounters with them. Not exactly that I have seen them in their astral figures or talk to them. But there have been a lot of instances that when I asked for help, then a help has been extended.

angels

I am not sure if I have shared this experience in my previous posts about angels. It happened about few years ago. I was on my summer vacation then. I stayed at my aunt’s house. There were no faucet in the bathroom. You need to fetch the water from the water pump at the backyard.  I finished my bath late afternoon and I had to return the pail. Due to my stupidity then, I didn’t put my ring on my finger, instead let it hang on my finger. After I placed the pail near the water pump, my ring slipped off my finger. The ground was covered with gravel and it was getting late already. There was no electric light at the backyard.

angels

I looked around but couldn’t find it. Then I uttered a prayer and asked help from my dear angel to help me find my ring. When I turned around I found my ring!

Actually, everyday, I feel their presence. I am not sure if I only got one guardian angel or more than 1. The thing is, I know they are there with me.

Another outstanding experience about guardian angel was when my daughter Antoinette is less than a year old. She’s really a very active kid even when she’s still a baby. One day, my sister left her for moment on the bed to get something. When she got back, she found Antoinette sitting at the rear side of the side. My sister called us for my daughter will fall down. We were stunned, for with her position, her head will be the one to hit the floor first.

But then, with her guardian angel around, she fell slowly. Her head touched the floor first but it touched the floor carefully. She cried, though. That’s because she heard me screamed.

I know a lot of people has their own personal experience with guardian angels. Though many people also denies the fact that these heavenly creatures do exist. But they do.. :)

Angel in Disguise

Angels around us, It's my Life 1 Comment »

I was rushed to Medical City last Wednesday night.  I had a terrible pain on my nape and I really got dizzy then. My mother was so worried about me. I never experienced that pain before. The doctor did a check on me and she said nothing to worry. It could be some muscle spasm. She also said that if I am experiencing mental stress, then that area of my nape and up to the head will be greatly affected.

They gave me a tablet to relax my nape muscles and also a pain reliever. We stayed in the hospital for another hour for the doctor needs to check if there would be any changes in my conditions. After about an hour, I felt a little better yet there still some pain, but it is tolerable already.

As we leave the hospital, the rain is pouring so hard. We didn’t bring any umbrella. Then I told my mother that we’ll just take a cab going home. It was really a blessing that as we turn our head to where taxi’s usually pass, there’s one coming and it is empty. I told the driver  where we live. Inside the taxi, I felt a pleasing feeling. I looked around the taxi and its plate number is TYP 430. 430 when add up is 7. Seven who happens to be God’s number.

Others may say that it was just a coincidence. But then, I believe that God is with us and He sent as angel through the taxi driver. :)

Angels by Our Side

Angels around us, It's my Life 4 Comments »

When we heard of the word angel, we always think of a super natural being or spirits. We often depicted angels as beings with wings and halo. It could be someone who is usually in a form of light. But little did we know that angels are not only those spiritual beings that we have grown up with.

When we were younger, I’m sure that most of us have learned the prayer to our guardian angels. Do you recall that prayer? Well for your recollection that prayer goes like this, “Angel of God, my guardian dear to whom God’s love commits me here. Ever this day be at my side to light and guide, to rule and guard. Amen.” This is actually the first prayer that I have taught my little girl.

Up until today, every morning when I leave the house for work or if I go somewhere, I always utter this prayer. And I personally had my own encounter with my dear angel. It’s like the wind. We can’t see them but we know they’re with us.

But as I was saying, angels are not only those spiritual beings and forms that we usually think of. In our everyday life, we find an angel from our friends, family and colleagues. In times of trouble, they are there to catch us and help us. These are people who play the role of an angel in our lives. They may not know that once or twice they’d been an angel to us and could still be playing an angel role in our lives.

Well, angels are around us. God did not only send us angels in spirit forms but also angels in people around us who love and care for us. Whoever that angel is in your life, a little thank you and appreciation will surely make his/her day! :)

Mighty Archangels

Angels around us 1 Comment »

Every October 2, the feast of the 7 Archangels is being celebrated. Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Judiel, Sealtiel,Uriel and Barrachiel. Maybe not all of you guys believe in angels but they have been around since the beginning. :)

Monday: Archangel Gabriel (Special Messenger of God)

Angels around us No Comments »

St. Gabriel is the bearer of God’s secret messages to His chosen ones. He is the angel who announced to the Blessed Virgin Mary of God’s plan for her to be the Mother of His Son, Jesus Christ.

PRAYER: St. Gabriel, Holy Archangel, you who are known as the bearer of God’s secrets meant specially for His chosen ones, we, God’s children are constantly keeping watch on God’s message. Through your powerful intercession, may we receive God’s words and messages so that together with Mary, our Blessed Mother, we may give glory and praise to Him. May we also radiate God’s love to others by our exemplary deeds. Oh, St. Gabriel, obtain for us the grace and present to the Father the following requests… through Jesus Christ our Lord together with the Holy Spirit forever and ever, Amen.

Sunday: Archangel Michael (Prince of the Heavenly Host)

Angels around us No Comments »

 

I wasn’t able to continue writing about our dear Archangels. I started out with Archangel Raphael which I have posted in last Tuesday. Archangel Raphael is the angel assigned to look over people who were born on Tuesday. There are 6 more Archangels more the other days of the week. I know that not all of us the day when we were born. Of course we know the date of our birthday, but we don’t exactly know what day of the week it is. I’m still researching for the Perpetual Calendar wherein you may be able to know the day of the week that you were born by simply typing your birth date.

Since today is Sunday, I have here Archangel Michael (Prince of the Heavenly Host).

St. Michael, The Archangel, is the Commander-In-Chief of all the hierarchies of the Heavenly Hosts. He is usually known as the angel who defeated Lucifer and his followers in the first rebellion of creatures against God. He is the first defender of Jesus in His sacred humanity and of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Mystery of the Incarnation. He is usually associated with the miracles manifesting the almighty power of God with the Blessed Virgin Mary.

PRAYER: O Mighty Prince of Heavenly Hosts, St. Michael, we beg you to protect and defend us in all our struggles against everyday temptations in this world. Help us to overcome all evils and strengthen us, that we may declare our faith in and loyalty to the Most High so that together with all the angels and saints in heaven we may glorify the Lord. St. Michael please intercede for us together with the Blessed Virgin Mary, and obtain for us the following requests… Present to God, the Father of all petitions through Jesus Christ, our Lord together with the Holy Spirit forever and ever, Amen.

Tuesday: Archangel Raphael (Healer and Guide for the Christian Pilgrims)

Angels around us 1 Comment »

St. Raphael is the Archangel of the Christian’s journey to heaven. As his name Raphael connotes, “medicine of God”, he is the Angel that brings good health and abundant provisions during our journey.

PRAYER: Oh great Archangel, St. Raphael, you have been appointed by God to become our healer and guide us in our earthly pilgrimage to our home in heaven. I beg you to assist us in all our undertakings and in all the trials and pains of this earthly life. We pray for constant good health both physically, mentally and spiritually. We beseech you to guide always our steps that we shall walk with confidence towards our journey, and enlighten us with our doubts generated by intellectual pride and worldly ambitions. St. Raphael please present to God the following petitions…
