Before Day One
Trudy Griswold and Barbara Mark
Even before you were born your angels were taking care of you and
protecting you. You were their work even then. Imagine a great group
of family members, friends, and angels all gathered around you on
your birthday giving you best wishes, congratulations, and hugs.
That is how it was on your original birth day. Loving beings were
sending you on your way to be born onto earth to do work and to
learn lessons with other family members and friends who were waiting
on this side to welcome you into your present life. It was a great
celebration, and those same angels and beloved friends on the other
side are still with you guiding you and helping you. Believe this,
because these souls are the ones who give you the messages that you
can receive from your angels when you request information.
Little babies are aware of what is on the other side. Have you ever
heard a mother say, “Look, I know she is looking at her angels.”
“Look at his eyes…he is seeing his angels.” It is true.
Q: My child was very sick when he was born. Where were his
The Angels Speak: We were right there beside him helping him
in the ways that his tiny soul was requesting. Every soul, from its
original day is learning lessons and is aware of the work he or she
is to do on earth. Illness is sometimes a way to learn. The prayers
you offered for your son’s health were heard. It is good to pray for
Q: My friend’s child died. It upsets me to see a child die.
It seems like they missed the life they were meant to live.
The Angels Speak: Every soul decides how long he or she will
live on earth. Sometimes, to you who love the child, it seems like
it is far too short. But each soul, from birth to death, lives a
perfect, complete, and full life according to the plan he or she
chose with God’s help. We stay with the soul from birth to return to
make sure every life lived is perfect. Especially the short
ones--for there was much to do, even in such a quick interval.
Q: Barbara and Trudy teach in their books that we can talk to
our dead relatives. Is this true?
The Angels Speak: Yes. It is the same as talking to your
angels. Say a quick prayer and Ask for the person to whom you wish
to speak. Then wait a moment for the feeling of your loved one to
come to you. Believe it is him or her. Then just Let Go and become
aware of what he or she wants you to know. Often it is a message of
love and comfort. Love transcends time and space. Love is more
perfect on that viewpoint than it was on this side.
Q: When do the angels come to the soul about to be born?
The Angels Speak: We are always there guiding the soul to
it’s purpose. A soul exists from the beginning, for it comes from
God. There is no beginning and no end. A soul just IS. We are always
with it. Angels are assigned to it to love it, teach it, protect it,
heal it, and support it. That is our work.
Faith Builder: Today, think of someone you love who has died.
Then feel the love his or her soul still has for you.
