How I Met the Angels - Daisy's Story
It was November 1998. The rain on the windscreen of my car was pushing the wipers, it was such a heavy thunderstorm that night, I could hardly see where I was going. It was a manifestation of how I was feeling, I just could not stop crying and it felt like I had been in this state of bereavement for months, even years. I was driving to the West Country to get away from the despair I felt in London.
I had left the QVC studio after a very busy show; I was the presenter for the Dream Wizard Pillow ~ My job was to be happy, sincere and to sell as many as I could. I loved it and the pillows really helped people to sleep better and improve their posture. Every pillow sold had a big picture of Merlin on its label and on the packet. I didn't realize the significance at the time, but I had been working with Merlin for 7 years transforming people's lives and my own.
The rain was so persistent I had to stop at a service station; I rang a friend of mine, who suggested I came to the Shambhala Healing Retreat where she was staying in Glastonbury. I met the owner, Isis for the first time and she gave me a VortexHealing treatment, it was amazing, I stopped crying and felt this huge layer of despair lift from my body.
Isis told me that I was a master healer, that VortexHealing was from the Merlin lineage and that I would benefit from re- connecting with it, especially as I had been tapping into the Merlin transformational energies whilst selling the Dream Wizard Pillow. I was flabbergasted but it all started to make sense and I just knew I had to study VortexHealing.
In March 1999, Ric Weinman came to Shambhala in Glastonbury and gave Beginners Class. It was awesome, during the class ‘I lost my last Karma knot’ part of the VH process. Alexandra one of the students was about to become a Merlin, it was so exciting. VortexHealing was very new in England; there were only one or two classes a year.
The effect of VortexHealing was immediate and I couldn't do enough of it. Six months later I completed my first Karmic Intensive with Anthony Gorman at the Convent in Wimbledon, an amazing experience. This was closely followed by the Advanced Class back at Shambhala in Glastonbury with Ric Weinman. On the way home I decided to go to ‘The Stop the Mind’ class being held at the Convent in Wimbledon, yet another awesome experience. I spent quite a lot of time at the Convent during 2000 as I went to a number of Karmic Intensive classes. The nuns were never quite sure about us!
The next class was Multi Frequency in 2001 held in Galway, Ireland with Ric Weinman and Anthony Gorman. I was reunited with a fragment of my soul that had split from the rest during a very traumatic time of my life, in that class. I really felt like a Wizard Healer afterwards or was it a Healed Wizard!
In 2001 Paul & I went on holiday to Skiathos in the Greek islands with our two young sons. It’s a beautiful and idyllic island and we'd been there many times before. One morning we were making the long, steep climb down the mountain to beautiful Kriffie beach where we'd arranged to meet our friends. Half way down I turned and started to slip, rather than falling I started to run but 30 feet from the bottom I realised I was going too fast and was going to fall. I hit the ground hard.
I knew straight away that my arm was broken, I could see it! As I discovered later I had broken several bones in my left arm and shoulder, compressed two discs in my lower back, pulled my groin, hurt my knee and banged my forehead against the ground hard enough to give me concussion and two huge black eyes! Everything was in slow motion and I knew precisely what I had to do; I called the Angels for help. They came, in the form of feelings and knowing!
It felt very surreal, my VortexHealing just kicked in with the circular breathing, I was very calm. A voice in my head was saying "Everything's going to be ok, breathe, don't move too much."
We walked slowly back up the mountainside, it was quite a climb, one slow step at a time. I asked the Angels for help again. Paul put a cap on my head; he had his hand in the centre of my back. It felt like my elbows were being held by the angels, I couldn’t bear Paul touching my broken arm at all. I felt supported and it was almost as if I glided up to the top of the side of the mountain to our friend's car. She drove us to the town centre, two hours away. When we got there we discovered there was a health centre, not a hospital and the x-ray machines were closed until the morning.
Early that evening I just wanted to sleep; I was alone in the room. There was a massive bright light at the end of the bed. I thought the bathroom light was on, or there was a light on outside. I couldn't move myself, so I just kept talking to the angels, I didn't know who they were, I just kept saying 'Angels, help me, help me'. I went to sleep and was up very early next morning, the room was still light, I didn't think anything more of it. I asked Paul why he had left the light on all night? He told me there was no light outside the door and he hadn’t the bathroom light on. I was intrigued as to why the light at the end of my bed had been so bright.
On the second night, the light was still there. The room was filled with light coming from the end of the bed. I asked the light who it was and the light replied 'I'm your angel and you're going to be ok'. My guardian angel said 'my name is Merlina; I'm your guardian angel'. Half way through the evening, half asleep, I said “I want this fixed, I cannot be and won't be a victim, I don't want to be an invalid, I don't want there to be any lasting damage please fix it”. I awoke to a vision of Merlin pulling at my arm, pulling the bone straight, it was overlapped by one inch. Then with a very blue white light like a welding iron he pointed his wand at the overlapped bone and encircled it around the bone, fixing the bond and mending the bone. Then Merlin sent healing through the tendons, muscles and connective tissues.
We got back to England, an X-ray from Kingston hospital showed the arm bone was now pulled tight and there wasn't a break, it had mended! The consultant looked at it and said ' Wooooooo! That doesn't happen very often!' I wanted to see it, I couldn't believe my eyes! I told him about what I had seen in my vision, that Merlin had pulled the bone straight and he'd welded it together and it had all been in my dream. He said "I don't care what you do, stand in the corner and pour pepper on your head! If it works and you believe it fantastic!" He was a very cool consultant.
The Angels in Skiathos were the opening of my direct contact with Merlina. She is gatekeeper to all of the other Angel realms that I work with now, or who come through me or come to me and shine their light. I had no idea how big an impact they would have on my life but I knew my life was changing. A friend sent me a bumper sticker that said 'sometimes you have to be pushed to know you can fly' - how very apt!
In 2002, a year after the fall, I was very wobbly, I still had concussion and I was numb from my waist downwards. I was meditating and practicing VortexHealing every day. Each morning I would write about my thoughts and fears in my Morning Pages' Journal, a technique from the Artist’s Way. I would spend most of the morning healing, centering myself and getting myself together. I realised after a few months that I was actually talking and communicating with Merlina, my Guardian Angel on a daily basis.
The Daisy Centre is born
The anger that I felt as a result of the fall was dissipating and ideas were flowing fast. One day I filled 13 morning pages with guidance from the angels. The Angels had given me a complete business plan, they were telling me to open a centre called the ‘Daisy Centre’ with a big floppy daisy logo, to write a book, to make CDs, hold workshops and conferences, take groups to Egypt and other sacred sites around the world and to become an International Angelologist, with Daisy Centres all around the world. It was a full circle eventually bringing me back to being a TV presenter, but this time talking about my Angels and Angelic products.
After that download, the fun really began. I had a mission. I was still healing from the fall, reading lots of books and taking every class I could - The Flower of Life, Reiki. Magnified Healing, all the VortexHealing classes available to me at that time, I think it was 5 in all. Every month I improved.
In January 2003 I was fit enough to start work part time. I started at Presents and Presence in Richmond, a well established centre for all esoteric, angels and spiritual knowledge. It was a fascinating book and gift store where I gave Angel card readings and VortexHealing treatments for the next 2 years. I really loved working with the owner Peggy O'Hare, who taught me a lot and introduced me to many wonderful people; I bless her every time I think of her.
In March 2003 I went to Egypt on a sacred journey with a group and the connection to the Angels just grew. I learnt a lot about myself and Paul! On the first day we went to Mount Sinai to climb to St Catherine's chapel on the top. It was a particularly hairy camel ride and by the time we had reached the top and come down again, Paul had asked me to marry him. Then the Angels really set about guiding us and helping us - they were everywhere, it was really funny!
We continued our sacred journey down the Nile from Luxor to Aswan and the group was very excited at the prospect of a sacred wedding. It was amazing how everything just appeared; one lady had a daisy sari, one had shoes with daisies on. Paul asked his Angels for the right clothes to wear as he hadn't actually bought anything suitable. We were on the boat and there were little traders in the water, about 30-40ft below us and he held out his hand and said to one of the traders 'do you have a Galabeya suitable for my wedding?' This trader threw it from the boat into his hand and it was sapphire blue and white, with gold trimmings and absolutely perfect Instant Angel manifestation.
We continued on the boat, by the last stop before Aswan the only thing we hadn't got were flowers. Every Egyptian we spoke to looked at us as if we were mad when we asked for them! Cut flowers die in the heat, so it is just not done. We asked the Angels for help at Komba Temple. We had already visited many times before but this time when we got off the boat there was a big sign saying 'flower garden'. We went into the flower garden and all the trees and bushes were filled with white acacia flowers. A man saw us looking at them and started to take them down for us. He made me a beautiful bouquet from them, we paid him 'bucksheesh' as a tip and then he ran away! We realised that they weren't his flowers to sell! We figured that we couldn't put them back on the trees, they must have been a gift from the Angels. The Captain of our cruiser was so impressed we had found some white cut flowers he put them in the fridge over night.
We were married the next morning at sunrise at the Temple of Philae, home to Isis, the Goddess of Love. We were with 44 of our dear friends in Trajan's Kiosk overlooking the Nile for an amazingly sacred ceremony. Everywhere you looked there were white feathers, a definite sign from the Angels. When we got back to England we had our official wedding, where once again the Angels provided and manifested everything we required, it was truly magical.
2004 was the year I gathered as much information as I could about Angels, I was still communicating with Merlina on a daily basis. I saw Doreen Virtue a few times and learnt about Diana Cooper's ascension course. I started to run my own Angel workshops and made my first angel CD. It was a year of consolidation and formulating my first book. I continued to learn as much Vortex Healing® as I could. At the end of 2004, just before Christmas I met 26 year old Damien Nola who and had a direct channel to his Angel, Elon.
Early 2005 Paul and I arranged to go to Egypt with Damien and 10 other people on a sacred journey through the temples of Egypt into the great pyramids in Cairo. We specifically went to meet with Hakim Awyam, my spiritual teacher of Khemition history, pre pharonic knowledge of the Giza Plateau. During our trip the transformation of the group was astounding. We collected keys and codes and really connected with our Angelic selves. By the time we got to the great pyramid at the end of the ten days we were totally transformed. Although I had been in the pyramid on many occasions over the past seven years, this time the Angels truly were there to meet us. It was during this encounter that the energies of the Alpha, Omega and Zenith Healing Angels (AOZ) appeared. These angels are from the 13th dimension and they are the Zenith Angels. This was the beginning of a wonderful association with Alpha, Omega, and Zenith Healing Angels. Elon was our channelled guide, with his help we set up AOZ Healing and ran three workshops. We made 12 guided meditation CD's of Elon's cutting edge channelling, they are full of wonderful teachings and attunements.
In May I came to Glastonbury fleetingly on my way to a workshop in Frome, when I met Doreen Virtue and her husband Steven Farmer in the High Street. I had seen her the previous Sunday at her workshop in London and she remembered me. I asked her if there was any chance of joining her Angel Camp at short notice, she said 'Yes! Come along!' I duly turned up at 7am on Monday morning to be the first in the queue, when the doors opened at 9am I was the first one in, although I didn't have a ticket. They told me to stand at the side and wait. Eventually, after one and a half hours they said that I could come in. It was a very interesting and wonderful week of Doreen Virtue teachings I met some wonderful angel friends. The course confirmed much of what I already knew as well as learning much more. At the end I qualified as an Angel Therapy Practitioner®. I was still working with the AOZ Angels.
In July I came to Glastonbury again to be ordained as a Reverend in the Madonna Ministry®, a church without walls. It was on the Lion Gateway day, which has a very big connection to Egypt. On the way home I was talking to my crystal Marina and she asked 'Why don't you buy a house in Glastonbury?' When I got home at 2am in the morning and conveyed that to Paul he said 'How’s Marina going to pay for it?'
The next day, looking on the internet we found a house in Church Lane that was to become the Daisy Centre Angelic Healing Retreat in Glastonbury. Two days later, on the Friday morning, we went to have a look, but the agents said it had been taken off the market. We left a note for the owner saying we were interested. She rang me and asked me what I did, I told her I was an Angelologist and I connected people with their Guardian Angels. She asked me how I knew if there were Guardian Angels around and I told her that there were normally lots of white feathers. At which point she sat down and went very white and said 'You're never going to believe this! My husband found a white feather in his breakfast this morning and asked what it meant! He put it in his top pocket and went to work.' I said that his Angel obviously had a message for him.
We loved the house and arranged to come back at 7pm that night. When we met her husband he beamed as he walked towards me, pulling the feather out of his top pocket, he'd had it there all day! By 7:30pm that night we had made arrangements to buy the house. It was a truly Angelic encounter, yet there were still many things to sort out before we moved in.
By September VortexHealing had arranged for an 'Energetic Journey to Egypt' for 10 days, I went on it with about 30 other VortexHealers. It was all about the divine masculine and the divine feminine coming together as one. During our stay in Luxor we had a ceremony where eight divine beings came to earth through three of us in the group, of which I was one. The energy of these beings was incredible and they were here for healing the earth. When the VortexHealing trip ended in Cairo my group arrived for another ten day Angelic Sacred Journey. Paul, Damien and twenty others all gathered and we went around the same temples, this time with the Angels. Our journey culminated in the Great Pyramid in Cairo. This time the Alpha, Omega and Zenith Healing Angels revealed themselves to be the Angels of Awakening. It was at this time that Elon ascended. Damien is now known as Shekhinah Melchizedek.
The Angels of Awakening channelled through me, I was creative writing every evening from 10pm until midnight , the 'Angels of Awakening, Lessons of Love, Life & Creation' birthed over a period of six weeks. My friend Laraine Krantz who had been on the Egyptian journey when Paul & I were married, took the photographs of stone angels to co-create the book.
On March 11 2006 the Daisy Centre Angelic Healing Retreat was officially opened and the Angels message to me was 'build it and they shall come' a quote from the film, Field of Dreams. Everything in the Daisy Centres just fell into place. Paul and I were amazed how much had been waiting to come from our garage, our house and our friends’ houses. It was as if the Daisy Centre had been building on the etheric since 2002. The Angels really helped us that first year, I asked the Angels for the perfect house keeper, one who lived close by, who had leisure industry experience and knew about Angels. I was driving from London every Friday for the first few months to meet the guests. One day a lady walked in who was to be our first house keeper. She lived on the other side of the car park, she'd spent a lifetime working in hotels and attended Doreen Virtues Angel Therapy Practitioner workshop in Australia - perfect! Just what I'd asked the Angels to provide. There were many Angelic stories in that first year, just to confirm that we were really meant to be here.
By November the Angels of Awakening book, Lessons of Love, Life & Creation was ready and we launched it at the world famous Atlantis book shop in London. It was so exciting to finally see it in print. We sold quite a few copies and are still doing so. The Angels were very clear that it had to be a 10 inch, square hard back and that it had to be in black and white. This represents the yin and the yang, the male and female, the alpha and the omega.
In May 2007 the Daisy Centres was going very well. The workshops were coming along and I was reintroduced to Damanhur, an eco society based in Italy. It is a phenomenal experience and Paul & I went with some friends to the full moon ceremony. Damanhur is a closed community who welcome guests and have a great deal of ancient esoteric knowledge to share. By the Autumn Equinox we took a group with us to experience their ceremonies, it was a sacred journey. We slept and stayed the night in the temple and the Hall of Spheres.
In December 2007 we held our first Angel Conference in conjunction with Wizard Well Being. We were really pleased to have Edwin Courtenay and Andrew Collins as our main guest speakers, along with myself, Jayn Lee Miller and a few others.
By 2008 the Daisy Centre was feeling well established and we had guests coming from all over the world. The Angels are certainly spreading the news. We birthed the Angels of Awakening Process, a series of four workshops based on the book, teaching the universal spiritual laws. Those people that started the process transformed themselves quite quickly. It was a joy to see. Ruth had joined us as our housekeeper, sent by the Angels to take the centre to the next level.
We continued our liaison with Damanhur and took the first year of the mystery school which we thoroughly enjoyed and learnt a great deal from. The main thing it really taught us though was not to be distracted from our path. On our return I started to write articles for magazines and to consolidate the Angels of Awakening range. Merlina was still very vociferous and I was continuing to live and work in both London & Glastonbury. The pathway along the A303 was filled with Angel light, I call it the Ley303! A Leyline to Avalon. It was as if I got in my car at one end and just arrived in the blink of an eye at the other. At this time Claire came as a guest with her friend as a birthday gift and treated themselves to a pampering weekend of Angel card readings, Vortex Healings and EIP sessions. Claire read Soul & Spirit magazine and had read the article on the Daisy Centre in the third issue. I was struggling to get my newsletter together to give to them to take home, in it I was thanking Ruth my PA (Personal Angel) who was leaving Claire said 'does that mean you need a PA? I'm a PA!' she moved into the Daisy Centres and started work the following week.
We had our second Angel conference in 2008, this time William Bloom was our main guest speaker, I spoke again on the Angels of Awakening and Jayn Lee Miller sang a beautiful song. In 2009 my grandson was born, it was wonderful transforming to the next stage in my life ~ Grandmother! We had a stand at the Mind Body and Soul Exhibition at Kempton Park with Shirley Ann & Ruth meeting and greeting everybody. It was lovely to reconnect to lots of previous guests and clients as they came to our stand, we had a wonderful response. The summer months were our busiest yet, with lots of international groups and visitors staying at the centre. Peter Sterling the international harpist who played at Doreen Virtues workshops stayed and we went to the crop circles together. My oracle cards were launched in the October issue of Soul & Spirit magazine. I continued to write articles for magazines, Soul & Spirit, High Spirit and Connections. 2010 year started very well, we had a meditation at midnight on New Year's Eve and the Angels came. They were from all seven realms that I work with. The energy portal of 01.01.10 was very strong. The message was very clear ~ "Be very present, in the moment. Allow everything to arise and be very flexible".
Then the snow fell! It was the heaviest fall for 25 years. Glastonbury looked gorgeous all dressed in white! The next 3 weeks all our plans had to change as our guests were snowed in and out of their homes. I took the Angels advice and converted most of my Angel and VortexHealing to telephone and Skype appointments, it is a very good alternative way of receiving healing.
It is all very exciting, I launched my 2nd new set of Oracle cards, Angels of Awakening Angelic Wishes in 2010. Since then I've been so busy I haven't had time to write it all down, so watch this space!
