Introduction to “FOAL and the Angels”

 

lorymountainsquotes OK, this is a little different from my usual posts, but I thought I would like to share with you the introduction to my little book “FOAL and the Angels”. Without going into too many details, I do explain how it came to be.

INTRODUCTION

I consider and have always considered myself to be a very well-balanced, totally grounded person, leading a very normal life.

I was born in a Western European country and stud­ied several languages in order to become a simultaneous interpreter. My father was a doctor, and despite the fact that he was the best person in the whole world, he never talked of God or spiritual things. In my family I was the only one who went to church, maybe because I always felt this profound love for God inside. Nevertheless, I was always sitting alone in a dark corner of a small chapel inside the church, rather than taking an active part in the service.

But then, when I was 21, a very special thing hap­pened. I was invited to a Tibetan meditation by a friend, and I remember being very nervous about it. It was a first for me. I had never meditated before in my life, but I was interested in Oriental cultures, and so I joined the medi­tation. The most vivid memory I have of this event is that as the Lama was approaching each of us with some sacred objects in his hand, all I could think of was that he would immediately know that my mind was all over the place and was doing anything but meditating. So when it was my turn, I was really ashamed of my unmanageable thoughts and got mentally ready for a scolding.

What happened next defies logic or any rational explanation. As the Lama touched my forehead with some kind of relic, the world disappeared. I had this great sense of Light, like successive waves of Light coming out, rising out of me, out of my belly, and reaching out and out and out. It happened. Like that. Unexpected, not even asked for, since I had no idea what to expect or ask for.

After this I found I was changed; so poised, so bal­anced, so perfect. And I just could not get angry. Try as I might, even in provoking situations that would have usu­ally strongly irritated me, anger was nowhere to be found, it just could not rise. I clearly remember myself thinking “Oh, my God! I will never be able to get angry again!”  🙂 I was in blissful synch for a few weeks. Then it faded away, but it left a deep mark within me. To this day, I still don’t know why it happened so spontaneously.

The moment of short but intense momentary enlight­enment in Foal’s story gives a detailed picture of how it felt to me. It left me stunned and dazed, forced to believe the unbelievable.

While I received all the messages and dreams described here between 2004 and 2010, this experience actually goes back to 1975. And this is actually one of the very few liberties I took.

Then, just a bare month after this incredible thing happened, I met my Asian husband-to-be; I quickly and overwhelmingly fell in love, got married, and settled down in a foreign country. Adjusting to an Asian culture so totally different from mine absorbed the whole of me and took all my energy and time. I was preoccupied with being a good partner to my husband, raising kids, and working, all while learning a completely new language, culture, and cuisine, so that for almost 30 years, spiritual matters were left at the back of my mind, simmering there, relegated to a tiny corner in my brain.

Before going on with my story, let me stress this. I was so not a New Age person. I can’t stress this enough. New Age was just not my thing. I had actually never even heard of the term New Age until, about 10 years ago, I found it in a book I was reading, but it was used in such unflattering tones that, from the very start, I was totally biased against it.

Well, as it goes, one Christmas, just before I turned 50, one of my daughters presented me with a New Age book, On Wings of Light, channeled by Ronna Hermann. I still remember so clearly that the only reason I started reading it was that I was worried that my daughter might have gotten into a cult, and I wanted to check it out. Well, talk about spirituality! In fact, this wonderful book proved to be a true revelation to me and changed my life in more ways than I could have imagined. More than the words themselves, it is what happened while I was read­ing through it that was a true “wake-up call” for me. As I was reading a certain passage, the words, “I am Archangel Michael,” clearly stood out, totally overwhelming me.

I don’t know how to explain this, but while my eyes fell on those words, it felt as if a huge presence had just landed in front of me and physically struck me on the chest so strongly that I felt like falling back a few feet. And in my mind I heard a voice saying Hey! It is Me! Wake up! Dont you remember?

I was shaken to the core. This was so incredibly real to me that I struggled for a rational explanation for sev­eral days. To me, this was not one of those things that I could share easily, at least not in my world, so I kept it close inside. And as I struggled to come to terms with it, the stunning dreams started and the out-of-body experi­ences, too. What’s more, there was this feeling I could not shrug off of Essences all around me trying to com­municate something to me. As I realized that all these incidents must be connected somehow, I came to see that moment with Archangel Michael as a true Clarion call.

All this happened almost at the same time, raising a thousand questions inside me and a desire to know more, to understand more. I naturally fell into this pattern of daily prayer and nightly meditation that started me on this journey of self-discovery. I received all the messages (and there are so many more, actually) in this book dur­ing meditation or just before falling asleep at night. The words would flow so fast in my mind, that often, to keep up with that pace, I had to skip a word or two, if not part of the sentence itself.

What I describe here is almost exactly how it hap­pened, or at least, how it was felt and registered by my mind and in my mind. The main liberties I took were to squeeze the six-year span into a story that lasted just a few weeks and to leave out some repetitions. As for the dreams, I have reported them all exactly as they were. I have tried to keep as close to reality, to my reality, as I can.

So, is all this true? I don’t know. How could anyone possibly know? But genuine? Yes. It totally comes from the heart. The fine line between my imagination and inspiration was unknowingly blurred into one of a bigger Truth, becoming a sort of thick pipeline between two dif­ferent worlds. I experienced this from the inside out, liv­ing the fascinating and captivating dreams, being amazed at the beauty and wisdom of the messages. Nothing could be truer to me than this experience; nothing could be more real to me. It was an intensive course of wisdom,imparted through dreams, messages, and voices. I called it Angels’ School.

It took me a long time to get over my ever-present self-questioning doubts. And now, at last, I have finally set it down into words—words that feel so inadequate, wanting, and imperfect to describe such an experience. But if the angels’ messages and Foal’s experiences can help people understand their lives better, I will find value in it, and it will all be so worth my efforts. And I wanted so much to share it anyway; it is just too beautiful to keep it all to myself.

Besides, I was asked to write this down. And God does not take no for an answer. My greatest hope is that this may be read and cherished not only by already spiritually connected persons, but also by the “layman,” and that this may be the beginning of an awakening for them too, as it was for me.
This is a fairytale, a true fairytale.
It is about Foal and the angels.

  1. FOAL. I wanted this to go on and on. I felt wonder, the silence of inner knowing, and the joy of coming forth. The best thing I could read next would be your announcement that you are writing a book of your life. I will surely back and promote it as much as possible. Marco

    • Marco, these were my thoughts before I read your comments. “You know” what “they” say about great minds (well, you have enough greatness for both of us).

    • Marco, thanks ! feeling happy !! You said it so beautifully my eyes are wet…
      And your support has been and is the most invaluable help FOAL ever received !
      To simply say Thank you doesn`t feel enough in any respect!
      As for my life story, it is not that interesting after all ( although it was for me, of course !! 😉 ), and besides, as I guess you know by now, I am a very private person and don`t really like to talk about myself much (FOAL was my way out 🙂 ).
      So a book about my life story is pretty improbable, BUT am working, albeit slowly, on FOAL 2 !! Rejoice !! 🙂
      P.S. had to edit the post because the last two paragraphs had been left out !

  2. FOAL, it was fun to revisit this introduction! Thanks for posting it.

    You must surely have a great many more adventures to share. When can we expect a second book?!?

    Dana

    • Dana, where have you been ?!!! I miss you ! 🙂
      Well yes, since we dream every night , FOAL has many more adventures and lessons to share, but the writing of FOAL 2 is proceeding very slowly for several reasons (among them this BLOG , i guess 😉 , it is taking a lot of my time !)…
      Thank you so much for stopping by !!

  3. Thank you so much for posting this! Your words inspire me in ways I don’t know how to express. You have a wonderful way of sharing your experiences in such a manner as to allow your audience to be there with you; feeling that moment of instant enlightenment; how wondrous that must have been!
    Even though I have not often commented, I always enjoy your posts very much. Looking forward to the more to come. Rose

  4. Rose, so good to see you here ! you know , mainly (and almost only) people of the …`CLUB` (!!!) ever comment here … so you are in the right place LOL 😉
    Thank you for your words,and it`s funny, because this is exactly how I feel about your way of writing !! you know i love it !
    I also understand how it may not be that easy to comment on my posts , since they are essentially on my personal dreams and OBEs, so don`t worry ! leave a word only whenever you feel like ! ❤ THANKS AGAIN !
    P.S. the moment of (temporary) enlightenment was truly an experience that cannot be forgotten although unfortunately the impact somehow gets less strong with the passing of time. I do talk a bit more in details about it in one of the last chapters of FOAL ( …interested 😉 ??) 🙂

  5. Yes, thank you very much for posting this FOAL. I wish I could convey all I have inside my mind the way it is done in this book. I love the style, it’s such a refind art, and at the same time it is very scientific. I agree with Rose, I don’t know how you manage to introduce us into your dreams, feeding our imagination and making us think we are the dreamers. This is called Magic. And it is a guift. 🙂

  6. Aww Khalid! Thank you ! I really wish i could say the Magic is mine, but it does rather feel like it has been poured through me just for the sake of writing this book !
    I am so glad to hear that somehow I was able to take you all with me into the world of my dreams !!! 🙂 THANK YOU for letting me know !!!
