That is one question that is not easy to give an answer to – how to describe the indescribable? I will try to be concise and simple. 🙂
Angels are pure love and light. I see them and feel them as light and unconditional love. They are also very powerful, so it is possible to feel a kind of authority, but it is gentle and very loving. They love us and protect us. We all have our guardian Angels and they are like a present from God. God loves us so much that he gave us an angel to be with us all the time.
There are so many Angels… Some of them will come with power of peace, some with joy, some with healing energy or something else – but they are all unconditional love and beautiful light. They are here to remind us of who we are, and how powerful and beautiful we are. They will always encourage us, remind us to love and accept our self. They are guides, empowering us to hear our own voice inside. Everything they do is empowering us and that’s why a person can feel only love, peace and joy around them.
When they are near or when we let them be present in our lives we can see them as light (orbs or lights that are similar to stars in the sky). Sometimes I can see them fully, they look a bit like us, but they are so much more beautiful, it’s impossible to describe. They are like some fluid, deep, never-ending light. One can feel the touch of an Angel. Some part of our body will move, or we can feel that gentle energy touching us. It is easy to feel the presence of an Angel, it’s an energy shift, especially when we ask them for a hug. 🙂 Some will feel heat, breeze or something similar. They will never do anything unpleasant. The only thing that can be unpleasant is our own fear – we are so afraid of so many things, sometimes even of something so beautiful as Angel’s touch.
As long as I remember, God was real for me. I’ve had a beautiful experience with Jesus when I was very young. My first “big” experience with Angels was 15 years ago in my bedroom. I was preparing myself to go to sleep and something strange started to happen. In one moment I realized that I couldn’t move, it was almost like something pressed me. Then all the walls started disappearing and I found myself in some “space” that I cannot describe very well. I saw something like black smoke that is coming towards me and I got scared. Then I found myself on a horse riding, with more horseman behind me. It was like I was in some kind of a movie but it was real. I spontaneously started to pray. At that moment I felt light in my spine. I felt that light went out from my spine, out of my head and then I saw a big, beautiful, powerful Angel with a sword above me. That vision was breath-taking.
Fear was gone in that second. Then I saw many other Angels above me. I felt a power inside and after that I could ride that horse through that dark energy without fear – with strong sense of power and faith. Then everything stopped. I fell down on my knees and I remember I made a vow to God. It felt to me as I if had made that same vow once before, but long, long time ago. It was in language that I didn’t recognise. I’ve surrendered myself into the Gods hands I ask him to guide me, to use me.
After that, I was in blissful state for three days. It was a state of expanded consciousness. No questions, no mind, just pure being. So present, so joyful. I knew everything was perfect as it is. Even my perception of time changed, colours were brighter than ever. When I was walking, people looked at me and smiled. Some of them even touched me. After those three days I “landed” into “normal” state I was before. But I was a different person. Everything changed inside me. All my friends noticed that. It was visible. For a while, everything changed outside of me also. That moment changed me for good.
I had that kind of experience (expanded consciousness) two more times after that. Each time it lasted three days. Why? I don’t know. 🙂
Later I found out that that powerful Angel with a sword was Archangel Michael.
After that experience, I started to hear Angels. First I was communicating with them through writing and then I could see them, feel them and hear them, on other occasions as well. I was very insecure in that period. So many times I thought that I was losing my mind. Angels told me that my mind was being liberated. I had so many confirmations from them, they guided me and they always sent me someone or something to confirm my experience. I was asking for signs from them all the time, I was so insecure. But being the unconditional love they were very patient. All these years they never left me alone in my doubts.
Even then, almost 15 years ago they showed me my path. The one that is today under my feet. 🙂 They told me that I am a bridge of light between them and people and that I should spread their massages. I didn’t want to do that. I was scared and I didn’t want that kind of responsibility. They helped me find courage and strength for that and I started to talk and share messages, but very slowly. In one period of life, I almost gave up. That was a very hard time for me. It was very hard for me to reconcile the world of Angels and the human world. I’ve had personal challenges on many levels but thank God I didn’t give up, I couldn’t. I felt that my soul would die if I stopped. I needed a few years after my first experience with Archangel Michael to start doing workshops, and even more to start doing one on one sessions with people. I think it took me about seven years (it is hard for me to put something in time). People got so much out of those sessions that it was a constant inspiration to go on.
A few years ago I had some doubts about my path. I asked God and Angels to send an enlightened soul into my life. I needed confirmation from someone who is an enlightened consciousness. I couldn’t settle for confirmation coming from any lesser source. Then I met Mohanji. When I saw him I had the same feeling I have in my meditations with Jesus. For me, they are the same consciousness. As always, God gave me everything, an answer to all my questions, hopes, and intentions. And with Mohanji I received so much more. I’m eternally grateful. A few months ago Mohanji told me something I will never forget: “I empower people who empower people.” That is the only thing I want to live for.
Angels help us in any situation. But they won’t do something if it will interfere with our growth. Also, they will not interfere against our free will. In some situations, they will help us even if we don’t ask for help. For example – we find ourselves in some situation where our life is in danger. If it’s not our time to go they will interfere.
So many people have questions about their future. Angels will not give answers about future except in situations when it’s important for the higher good of all. In my experience people often have that kind of questions and sometimes they are very persistent but Angels are not psychics and it’s not their job to give answers to that kind of questions. They are here to empower us to be in deep connection with ourselves and the whole of existence, so that we can sense what the best path is for ourselves. At the beginning I had so many questions for them. Now I have less and less. They taught me how to observe, feel and listen.
I can say that there is a Martina before the experience with Michael and the other one after that experience. Actually, I had so many transformations during the last 15 years that I can easily say I’m not the same person I was 15 years ago. I’m not the same person I was seven or five years ago, or even a few months ago. With Angels, life is a path that is ever-changing, evolving and there is always something to learn, to realize, and to do to broaden our horizons on every level of existence.
Today I can say that I have everything one person can have. I’ve had every experience I wanted to have. And now I want to give that back to the world. I have less and fewer desires and more and more visions for a better, kinder world. I want to be a part of the New Earth and I’m doing something for that vision each day. That gives me meaning.
Also, I can see/hear/feel so much more today. My visions are deeper. I’ve had powerful “conversations” not only with Angels but also with some Masters and other highly evolved beings of the Universe. I don’t know where that will take me. And I don’t care as long as I’m in God’s hands.
The transformation that took part is one of the most beautiful things. Everything changes when we allow them to be a part of our lives. I am blessed with so many things, situations, and people in my life. And the most important thing is that I see the same thing happening with others as well. It is the best thing ever to see that someone changes his or her life after a workshop or an Angel reading. I read so many e-mails and messages about great things people have done after they allowed Angels to help them.
One thing I love is how they connect us. I have met so many beautiful people on workshops and reading, some became my friends and one of them is my partner. 🙂
To be honest, my challenge is sometimes people and their questions. 🙂 Sometimes I find it hard to meet people that are not listening, again and again. They come to me with ego questions and don’t want to hear what Angels are telling them. It’s a bit sad for me when someone, who is in the presence of unconditional love and grace, would then ask what kind of sink should they buy for their bathroom. 🙂 People don’t understand those big expectations and lack of responsibility in making decisions are a part of their suffering. Angels always guide us to our home – God and ourselves. So many people don’t want to hear that simplicity. They just want to know will they be successful in their business or relationship.
Sometimes it is hard to be human with all these spiritual experiences. In some meditations with Angels or Jesus or some other guides, I get this clarity about everything. Everything seems so easy and simple. And then I’m just a human again, again. 🙂 It can be very challenging. But Angels and spiritual guides helped me cope with all of that. I am accepting myself more and more and in that acceptance, I can easily accept everything and everyone. I’m still travelling towards total acceptance. :)))
Just be you. Don’t force anything. Meditate, ask your Angels to hug you, comfort you, to give you a sign. Our Guardian Angels are our best friends and we should approach them like that. Be you, be free to speak with your Angels with an open heart and mind. Meditation helps, not because our Angels need that, it’s because we need meditation to tune into silence. In silence it is easier to hear, see and feel our Angels.
I love to connect with light first. I believe we must be connected with “heaven and earth” at the same time. At my workshops, we meditate and share our experiences. We learn how to open more and how to see/hear/feel angels and even share their messages. Someone will say channelling. For me that is natural and I know we all can do it. So I don’t like fancy words like channelling 🙂 but that is it.
Every workshop is different. I don’t know what will happen when I sit in front of people. Angels guide me all the time and they give people what they need at that moment. Usually, if there is enough time, I give people personal messages from Angels. That is a favourite part of most of the participants. 🙂
People who are coming to my workshops changed their lives for the better in so many ways and levels. Sometimes they just realize that nothing changed in the outside but that everything changed on the inside. They are different people with different reactions (or no reactions :)).
Angels are also here to heal us, and to help us heal others and the world.
The best thing is that people who come to my workshops are becoming better people, kinder but stronger, more peaceful, joyful. And many of them can see, hear and feel their Angels in everyday life. That is a way of living. I cannot imagine how someone can survive in this world without God. Angels are here to connect us with God and ourselves.

On the banks of river Sarayu, in the small village of Chitrakoot, farmer Dhaniram worked hard in the fields to produce a harvest that fulfilled his family needs and also that of some others who came to him for help. In his many years of hardships, he had seen spoiled harvests, sometimes diseases infesting the crops, sometimes pests and hailstorms and sometimes a bountiful harvest. He had been through all the ups and downs of farming and held his skill of farming dear to his heart despite being tired of it.
One day he was passing by the village temple where he saw the temple priest Nakulananda humming a bhajan and moving around joyously in a carefree manner. He stopped and observed him carefully, then went closer and curiously asked, “Hey Nakula, how do you manage to be so joyous and carefree. I have never known such a state; I am either working hard in the fields or worried about my crops. Please share your secret of joy so that I can also benefit.”
The priest cheerfully replied, “It is no secret, I just worship my God and he takes care of all my work. It is so simple!”
Dhaniram was amazed on hearing this, and said: “Ah! You are so lucky. If you don’t mind, can I borrow your God for few days?”
Now this was a strange question for Nakulananda. No one had ever asked him such a question, and he was not prepared for it. None of the scriptures he had read had instructions on how to loan a God! This was such an odd question, how to answer it! Moreover what would a temple without an idol be like? All this thoughts flooded his mind in that instant and his joyous face turned into a worried face that moment. Seeing him worry, Dhaniram was puzzled and asked, “What happened, don’t you want the people in the village to be as joyous as you?”
Nakulananda reverted in defence, “No, you cannot take the God of this temple, but to keep you happy, I will give you a new God.”
The priest was unsure about the results of giving this ‘God’ to Dhaniram so he added, “But only if you worship Him properly will he take care of you.”
Dhaniram was happy at the prospect of getting God at last, and said, “Don’t you worry I shall worship to the best of my ability.”
Nakulananda went inside and picked up a stone that he used as a paper-weight and gave it to Dhaniram saying, “See here is your God, now it’s all between you and Him.”
Dhaniram was overjoyed, he thanked the priest for his gift and hurried back home. He called on his wife, and exclaimed, “See I have brought God home! Now all our worries will go away.”
His wife was a bit puzzled and asked: “Where?”
He showed her the stone that the priest had given him. She thought that the priest had fooled her naive husband but didn’t want to interrupt his stream of joy, so just smiled at him.
Dhaniram then asked her to bring food for God, as he would have food only after feeding God. He bathed the stone while his wife brought food. He was overjoyed at the idea that God would eat food from his hands. Dhaniram was so simple; he never thought that a stone could not eat. In fact, he never believed he brought home a stone, all that he knew was he brought God home. He offered the food lovingly to the stone. But the stone won’t eat. He was disappointed, but then thought “I must pray Him to eat. The priest had said to worship properly.”
So he folded his hands, bowed before the stone and pleaded to eat. Nothing happened. He then thought, “Nakulanada sings bhajans, maybe God will be pleased by it. I must sing to please Him.”
He sang for the first time in his life. He could feel his voice was coarse. The stone still not ate the food offered.
Dhaniram felt, probably God is feeling uncomfortable in this hut, I should arrange a better seating arrangement to please Him. He went out to get some fine cloth and decorations to prepare a seat suitable for God. The whole day was spent in preparing a decorative seat, after which Dhaniram was so tired that he didn’t know when he fell asleep. He went without food that day.
Next morning he woke up and saw that God had still not eaten the food. He bathed the stone and dressed it in the new clothes he had brought for ‘his God’, seated Him on the decorated seat, burnt some essence, offered some flowers and fruits and tried singing a bhajan to appease Him. All this to no avail, he kept calling upon God from morning to night but God still did not eat the food offered. Three days passed like this. Dhaniram tried his best to please God, but He would not accept his food. Three days Dhaniram too went without food. His wife was worried for him. She pleaded him to have food, but he refused and said until God accepts my offering, I will not eat.
An old beggar came to their house that day and asked for something to eat. Dhaniram’s wife told the beggar that her husband had not eaten since three days, and unless he had his food how could she offer him food. The beggar asked her why he had not eaten; and she told him the whole story. He then asked to see Dhaniram. She took him inside where Dhaniram was pleading his God to eat. The beggar went over to the altar where Dhaniram had placed his God. He kicked the ornately adorned stone and in his tattered rags, seated himself on the altar. Dhaniram was in a state of shock. For a moment he wanted to scold the beggar for kicking down his God, but then he lovingly picked up the food and fed the beggar with his own hands. He wept tears of joy as he did so. The beggar hugged him, fed the remaining food to Dhaniram and said, “Now that you have fed me, can we go to the fields.”
Dhaniram realised that the one he was trying to propitiate was not the real one. That was only a medium to beckon the real. And the one who was real, needed no appeasement.
Later when he returned, his wife asked him “This beggar threw away your idol and you still fed him?”
“I was angry only for a moment when he kicked my idol, but then I thought, if the feeling to feed God was not within me I could not have fed him either in stone or human form. But the feeling to feed him was strong enough that it didn’t matter what form He came in”, replied Dhaniram, with a never before smile. And he walked towards the temple to return the borrowed God. He had found his own now!

The Universal Absolute Birthless, Formless, Unmanifest and Infinite, takes on the imitations of name and form on its own initiative and concretises itself on many occasions as Incarnations, Avatars, manifesting countless instances of Divine intercession and grace…
God incarnates not merely for the destruction of the wicked. That is just the obvious reason, which is but an excuse. God in truth incarnates for the sake of His faithful devotees. The cow has milk primarily as sustenance for its calf but man also uses it.
So too God primarily incarnates for the sustenance of the faithful, the virtuous, the good. But even the faithless, the bad, use the chance for their own purpose… God has no bondage to time and space and to Him all beings are the same. He is the Master of the living and the non-living. There is no limit to His potence; there can be no boundaries to His achievements. He comes as the Inner Inspirer for some definite purpose. He comes to close an epoch and inaugurate another-the Incarnation of the Age (Yuga Avatar).
The Avatar behaves in a human way so that mankind can feel kinship but rises to His superhuman heights so that man can aspire to climb and through that aspiration reach Him. Realizing the Bond within as the Motivator is the task for which He comes in human form.
Excerpt from Sri Sathya Sai BHAGAVATAM

When I was around 8 or 9 years old, my mother had been sick for some days. I asked my father “when will Mummy be well again?” He said, “If you write a letter to God to make Mummy well, she will get well soon. God responds to small children very quickly.”
I took his word and tore a paper from my school note-book and wrote a letter to God asking Him to make mummy well. I even decorated it with small sketches colored with crayons to make it appealing for God to read. Then I went to Papa and asked him for a stamp. He said that letters to God did not require stamps. So I simply glued the edge of the paper, folded inside like an inland letter, addressed ‘TO GOD’ and posted it in the post collection box near our house. I was still unsure if the letter would reach God without the stamp. But in my heart I hoped it would. I waited for a reply too. Each time I heard the postman’s bicycle bell, I would run out to see if he had got a letter from God. After 2 weeks Mummy was fine, and I gave up on receiving a reply from God, and gradually stopped thinking about it.
I kept hearing about God from people around me, but like I could see or communicate with people, I was not able to see or talk to God, let aside the possibility of receiving letters! God seemed to me, some distant power residing in some far off heaven whom I may or may not be able to see. But with life catching up, this search didn’t seem to hold any meaning, as ‘He’ didn’t seem to be concerned with the daily events of my life, except calling up on Him before appearing for the exams. Yet whenever the talk about God arose, it stirred me. I wanted to ‘see’ God, at least for once, and know who this, that the world speaks of, to be so great, looked like.
Until after 4 years, we had a seminar in school. This seminar was to be conducted by Father Ivo Fernandes from the Holy Redeemer Church. All from my class were required to attend this seminar. I was curious and hoping to know about God from this holy man. After all he held an authority in the church and was supposed to know about God. When the seminar started to roll on, the subject of God came up, and this was my chance to express my concerns. I told Father that I could not see God, and inquired how it was possible to see ‘Him’. At this he replied that ‘just as milk contains butter in it, but is not visible unless the milk is churned, the world had God in it but He cannot be seen. He had given an appropriate answer as per my state at that time, but that too didn’t seem to satisfy me, as I kept reasoning with myself that the butter still becomes visible at some point, then why not God?
The discussion, however, was carrying off too long and it was difficult to convince me how God would be visible, so he dismissed it to proceed with the seminar. Seeing God seemed like an eternal mystery, solving which was something I didn’t know how to go about so I kept postponing it for reasons that were not clear to me then.
Over years I kept meeting all sorts of people, ranging from theists, atheists, agnostics, fanatics and god-men. The broad range of views brought huge insights, opening to me a new reality each time. Each reality seemed to have an element of truth to it. Books and literature on related stuff too brought fresh viewpoints, or rather old view points seen in newer light.
These revelations through people, books, and other sources kept enriching me, until this discussion with my son. It happened one day that I asked him what he thought about God, I wanted to know his views. His reply surprised me as to how he had been knowing the views I had held and how his simple reply undid it in that moment, “Ma, God is not somebody in some far off heaven, God is very ordinary, found everywhere. I see God everywhere.”
Hearing this made me inevitably compare the views of my childhood days to his… it had been a long journey from ‘far off heaven to everywhere’. I learnt that it wasn’t about what you saw but how you saw it that mattered.

If there are 7 Billion people on earth, there are as many personalities, with concepts, ideas, fears, conditionings, and all other flavors of life that one could possibly think about. As I have always mentioned, constitution wise, we are “hand-made” and not a factory product that looks and feels alike and whenever man tried to create evenness among his subjects, serious tragedies took place; wars, death and displacements happened.
Each being on earth is unique, irrespective of the species. This also implies on one’s free will. We create our destiny. We ourselves, through our own thoughts, words, emotion and action created our own destiny. We are the creator or script writer of our own life. Soul is only the aiding factor or the fuel that fulfils the journey – the energy that made the script into action. Nobody else is responsible for your life, your experience, even though many a time, you need co-actors to bring forth effects in experience. So many actors sequentially join and leave the play and each actor has his or her relevance in the play. None is less or more important. Everyone added their flavor.
In your life story you are certainly the hero and the rest are the supporting actors. But for each supporting actor, they are the hero of their own script. Comedy, tragedy, drama, action, horror, satire and all its variations are usually part of every script. Each actor represent different flavors of life. They join hands and spice up the drama of your life. They make it worth it. Sometimes the show makes you cry, sometimes it makes you laugh, sometimes it creates fear, sometimes love. The story continues. Many characters happen in the play.
Concepts and questions such as why cannot God remove evil from earth makes no sense when we understand how the infinite power operates. God is neutral, just like our own soul. It is objective, non-interfering and in perfect detachment from the actor or the action. God allows all characters to come and perform on the stage or it never interferes at least. Since each player is also the script writer of his own drama, God allows the experience of the play, irrespective of its theme and reason. There is no good and bad in God’s realm. There is only truth and experience. Man goes through many relative truths before he understands and attains the absolute truth. This trial and error is part of every being’s life.
God shall not take away this experience of existing in duality until one finds his unity. Duality is indeed the state as well as experience that leads one to unity. This truth cannot be underestimated. Without duality, there is no creativity. When me and my father become one, there is nothing to experience anymore. Only when the object and the experiencer are separate from one another, there is an experience. When eyes become one with the sight, there is nothing to see. When tongue becomes taste, there is nothing to taste. When ego and all identities dissolve and man becomes one with God, there is no more search. There is only beingness.
This state can be achieved only at the end of the drama. The chosen script should be acted and completed before the merger can happen. The audience or the operator cannot interfere and change the script nor duration. Sometimes, some characters attain sudden death and disappear from the drama. Even this is part of the original script even though it may seem to the audience as quite dramatic. This is the chosen effect, by the script writer. If a Wow happens in the lips of the audience, the script writer attains fulfillment, even if it means a tragedy.
