I am a firm believer in fear.
When it comes up, I look to it as my GPS to know what to do next.
One of my biggest fears growing up was flying. I feared flying so much that I almost missed a college graduation trip to Hawaii my parents gifted me.
In my late 20s, I decided to face it—I applied to be a flight attendant. To my shocking surprise, I was successful and got the job! Learning about the processes, safety procedures, and all the aircraft’s noises helped me to have an enjoyable experience in the sky.
I actually look forward to flying now!
With every takeoff, I grounded the plane and thanked my angels for being present. I always felt safe, and nothing exciting or “scary” ever really happened.
Until one day, it did.
I remember that morning. I woke up with a pit in my stomach. There was something that just seemed off. I didn’t want to go to work, and I was hitting resistance even driving there. I thought maybe that feeling would go away. It didn’t.
As a standard policy before the flight, the captain briefed our crew and let us know that there would be bad weather at our destination. That information is not out of the norm for a crew briefing, but an overwhelming feeling overcame me when he said it. I felt nauseous, and anxious energy swirled around my stomach. My initial reaction was a thought to call out sick. Being an employee of integrity, however, I simply wouldn’t do that. I knew there was only one other option—faith. I immediately went to my jump seat and invoked my angels.
I thanked Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael for being with us that day. I carried on a full-on angel conversation in my heart, keeping it present, in gratitude, and calm. One of the vital components I have learned to help angelic communication be more effective is the need for breathwork. Breath is the language of angels, and deep breathing makes it easiest to communicate with angels.
I took a few deep breaths in the little time I had. It wasn’t long before I saw a few tiny blue sparkles in front of me, and I knew I was heard.
The flight was easy for the most part, and I enjoyed the crew I was working with. I usually flew as lead flight attendant in first class, however, I had picked this trip up and was flying in the back, which was a nice break for me.
About one hour before landing, we received notification that the weather was going to be rough. There was a man who was hassling me for a beverage and a woman needing help with her child, but I knew I had to honor the strong nudge I had to “sit down now.”
I heard it, felt it, and saw a little light flickering movement I refer to as my angel sparkle. That was enough for me to have us finish up our duties, secure the space, and take our seats.
I don’t think I will ever be able to explain what happened from there. The weather was indeed rough; overhead bins popped open, and the plane was abruptly drifting from one direction to the other. I remember the loud sound of the metal bins in the galley clinking together and shifting around.
At one point, while seated in my jumpseat, the weather shifted the plane so abruptly, I bumped into the side of the aircraft, which shook my pretty little updo loose! I remember being there, yet at the same time, I don’t recall much of it, and the hour since we had left on the flight all of a sudden seemed just to disappear. I didn’t hit my head, I didn’t fall asleep, yet time was lost.
Before we knew it, we were on the ground, safe and sound.
I remember looking out the window and seeing ambulances and a fire truck between our aircraft and the Southwest plane next to us. I looked at my fellow teammate with an eek face, and he gave me a side frown back. We agreed the scene didn’t look good. I took a moment to send light from my heart to the plane next to us.
We thought the firemen and medics were there for them, but they weren’t. They were there for us. But we didn’t know it then.
After all of the guests were deplaned, my teammate and I made our way to the front of the plane. It was then we learned team on safety vehicles were sent there to meet our flight.
Our teammate working at the destination airport stood there holding a message from our plane on a piece of paper; it was our flight number, our captain. I saw it with my own eyes. It read the two teammates in the back of the aircraft (specific to our names and employee numbers) were injured and needed medical attention. We all compared stories and just stared at each other in awe and confusion.
I knew my angels were with me the whole time and helped create a miracle.
We carried onward and made our way to the hotel shuttle; everyone was a bit confused.
Once on the shuttle, I turned on my cell phone and was greeted with text messages from the chief pilot and colleagues who worked at headquarters and got word of our supposed injuries. They were reaching out concerned, making sure I was okay.
I am thankful my supervisor understood the person I was, and I could explain to her the magic and miracle in the story, which she very much took to hear. She said to me, “Gina, I am so glad your angels took care of you today and that you are okay.”
Even though I get it, I still can’t really explain what happened that day. Friends and colleagues have talked about parallel universe experiences, Divine intervention, and other theories. It doesn’t matter to me.
What I absolutely know was my faith (finding angels in the heart) was put to work. It was a true miracle, and I am forever grateful.
With travel picking up again, if you would like to invoke your angel team for trips, try this simple invocation (Archangel Michael is a master at protection, and Archangel Raphael is known to help with safe travel):
“Thank you, Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael, for being with me today on this day of travel. Archangel Michael, I am grateful your presence is keeping me safe, protected, and surrounded by a pure white light. Archangel Raphael, I give you thanks for ensuring this trip is peaceful, easy, on time, and safe. Thank you for being with me and ensuring travel that is high vibrating with the most favorable outcome.”
Vision yourself surrounded by a bright light. You can do the same with the plane as well. I also love to make a grounding cord from the plane to the earth.
Finally, hold the image that you are vital, happy, healthy, and consider it done. Allow the love to permeate your heart.
