from Karen in France
I have come across your website whilst doing research to support my own sightings.
In December 2004, I was rushed to a hospital with a suspected appendicitis. I had my operation on December 22nd. I woke up in February 2005, having nearly died and still being gravely ill. On Christmas Day 2004 I almost lost my fight for life after contracting Septicemia following a medical mis-diagnosis and surgical error. However during the time I was not conscious of the outside world, I saw two angels, who came to me to tell me I would be alright. Obviously I was confused as I did not know what they were talking about, but I did feel safe and calm and I can remember smiling at them and saying, "Thank you."
My angels spoke English; I am English but I was in a French hospital with non-English speaking employees. So, it could not have been any of the staff talking to me. When I came around in February, I told my fiancé what I had seen; he is not a sceptic thankfully, and I have felt the presence of my angels ever since.
I spent 15 months in the hospital, and during this time was visited by a group of people who practice reiki. I knew that they would help me, and I can say that my recovery started the day they guided me with their healing. This is the first time I have seen my angels but not the first time I have been near death. I also died and was revived as a child.
I have in the past sought spiritual counselling, and been told I have two spirits constantly with me. I know now that my spirits are angels, and though I am not devoutly religious I have always believed that there is more to this world than we can see - and that we are all here for a purpose. My life has been full of trials, hardships and successes. I have yet to find out my purpose of being here, but it helps to know I have guardian angels.
We find it fascinating that the angels in this story communicated in English with Karen, leading us to surmise that family - loved ones in spirit - were with her, even when she was in another country!
