Tutor Ann Marie Mullen explains what her night class in Old Bawn Community School, Tallaght, Dublin 24, entails
“I believe that, for every problem or need you have in life, God has an angel who can help and guide you. I believe angels live in the spiritual realm, that they are always close to us and, if we can relax our busy minds and tired bodies, we can make contact with them, receive their love, wisdom and blessings.
In the classes which I have been running at Old Bawn for the last 18 years, I try to help the men and women who come to them make their own personal connection to the Angelic realm.
I try to show them that angels are everywhere even if they are not aware of them, even if they don’t know what angel is in charge of what. That there is energy, rays of light coming from God to help us and each ray is an angel. An Angel with qualities and gifts we can have access to.
In order to do this, I teach them to slow down, how to relax their bodies and minds so that they can become more aware of all the other energies going on in and around them. In order to do this, we practice relaxation techniques, give one another head, hand and foot massages, hands-on healing in the fragrant atmosphere of Aura Soma Colour therapy oils, pomanders and quintessences, in candlelight with soothing music playing in the background.
During the classes, we use all sorts of different kinds of Angel Cards that are on the market. Explore their artwork, the printed messages and what effect this information has on each one of us personally. To help us relax further, we use Bach and Bush flower remedies to help stabilise our emotions. At the end of the evening, I lead the group in a guided meditation. As they recline on the sofas and bean bags, I invite them to meet the Angel of the evening. They leave relaxed connected in a more meaningful way to an angel who supports them for the following week.
