Micro-Fiction: Countdown to Three O’Clock

Ten, nine, eight, seven, six……Why do seconds take so long when you are waiting?  She said she would be here at three o’clock.  Just a few seconds more.

My dream, my angel.  

Well, yes actually; both.  An angel that appears in my dreams.  Her last visit was only a few hours ago in my waking-dream time and she said she would return when I was fully awake – now! at three this afternoon.

Warm air drifts past my neck and the hairs rise on my arms.  I am sweating and my eyes start peering around, popping out of the sockets.  Nothing except the feeling and expectation of more.

I feel a touch where no one except me has touched before. I see no one.  Nothing. But I feel the presence.   

Close my eyes, focus internally, back to dreamtime.

The touch becomes firmer, almost a grasp, and I am responding.  I smile and squint through tight lids.  

A golden aura, crimson and silver wings from the clean uncluttered shoulder line. Blond hair falling around the neck.  Blue eyes looking directly into mine. The lips, oh those lips. I lean forward to meet them and the draft of air increases to a breeze.  I am drifting before it with no power of my own, losing all. Feeling the lips. A sigh behind draws my attention and I glance back seeing my own image.

 The breeze increases.  I am gone.

Recommended Read: Earth Angel Series Boxset

Earth Angel Series Boxset: The Earth Angel Training Academy, The Earth Angel Awakening & The Other SideEarth Angel Series Boxset: The Earth Angel Training Academy, The Earth Angel Awakening & The Other Side by Michelle Gordon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Description

This is the Earth Angel Series Kindle Boxset, which includes the first three books in the series – The Earth Angel Training Academy, The Earth Angel Awakening and The Other Side.

The Earth Angel Training Academy:
When Head of the Earth Angel Training Academy, Velvet, receives a call from an Elder on the first day of term, she knows that the new class will be unlike any other she has taught. While experiencing the most tumultuous time of her very long existence, Velvet must remember her buried past, and open her eyes to the future so that she can prepare the Earth Angel trainees for the toughest missions of their existence – to Awaken the humans before the world ends. Time is running out… The is the second edition.
Review: “The Earth Angel Training Academy packs wonderful and ancient truth into an imaginatively original tale that both delights and enlightens. The result: a read that is both fun and inspiring.” – Neale Donald Walsch

The Earth Angel Awakening:
Twenty-five years after leaving the Earth Angel Training Academy to be born on Earth as a human, Velvet (now known on Earth as Violet) is beginning to Awaken. But when she repeatedly ignores her dreams and intuition, she misses the opportunity to be with her Twin Flame, Laguz. Without the long-awaited reunion with her Twin Flame, can Violet possibly Awaken fully, and help to bring the world into the elusive Golden Age?
The Earth Angel Awakening is the sequel to the Earth Angel Training Academy, also available on Kindle. Warning: Contains expletives and therefore may not be suitable for younger children.

The Other Side:
Mikey is an ordinary boy who just happens to talk to the Faeries at the bottom of his garden. So when an Angel visits him in his dream and tells him he must return to the Earth Angel Training Academy in order to save the world, despite his fears, he understands and accepts the task. Starlight is the Angel of Destiny. By carefully orchestrating events at the Academy and on Earth, she can make sure that everything works out the way that it should, even though it may not make sense to those around her. Leon is a Faerie Seer. He arrives at the Academy as a trainee, but through his visions he realises that his role in the Awakening is far more important than he ever imagined. The Other Side takes the first Earth Angel Training Academy story and helps you to see it from a completely different perspective.

What I thought of it

I purchased this boxset after reading only the first chapter of The Earth Angel Training Academy: I had a sense that the whole series would be fun to read, as well as being sprinkled with spiritual truths. Will every theme and concept in the series resonate with you? Well, as with all books, that will be different for everyone, as we are each unique. Personally, I found a lot to enjoy, and was also left with much to think about.

Aside from the spiritual themes of the books in this boxset, I got caught up in the relationships between the various characters – human, angelic, faerie, and … well, I’ll say no more about them, as I don’t want to spoil your own Earth Angel Training Academy adventure!

The instant manifestation theme was certainly fun for me as a reader, as I imagine it must have been for the author to write! There are more practical topics now and then, too – like dowsing with pendulums, and guided meditations; and the struggles we awakening humans pass through as we gradually gain more understanding of ourselves and of our possible role in this vast, energetic universe.

If you’re aware you’re on a journey of spiritual awakening, and/or simply want to allow new ideas and perspectives to expand your thinking, then I think you’ll really enjoy this boxset. After reading the first three books, I have already purchased the fourth. I know that I’ll read it at precisely the right time, as and when I’m nudged by the gentle voice of my intuition!

So does this series appeal to you? Perhaps you’ve already read one or more of the books forming the series? Did you, too, find it thought-provoking and an enjoyable read? 🙂

A Duet of Tales for #FridayFictioneers: ‘The Wind Beneath Their Wings’ and ‘Land, Sea and Air’

Every Friday, writers from around the globe join to write tiny tales in response to a photo prompt posted on Rochelle’s blog. It takes discipline to write a piece using only 100 words! It’s also fun to take part in the blog hop and to read the stories written by everyone else. 🙂

As we’re gearing up to launch Mosaic of Light in just 10 days’ time, I (Joanna) will do my best to visit those of you who are kind enough to comment on our stories. Thanks for your forbearance if I don’t get to your blog straight away!

Hope you enjoy our stories, even though we don’t feel they’re our best work. 😉

This week’s photo prompt has been supplied by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

Joanna’s story ~ ‘The Wind Beneath Their Wings’

Angelique heard the engine stutter, saw the sudden bloom of flame. Acrid black smoke churned from beneath the wing. Around her, passengers screamed, a baby wailed, a man fainted.

Confusion. Panic. Drinks upset, food trampled; people everywhere, pushing and pulling, survival of the fittest.

Angelique remained serene. Spiralling her mind outward, she guided the pilot’s actions, calmed the co-pilot’s scattered thoughts, filled the aircraft with soothing light.

The damaged engine was isolated. The instruments normalised. The plane was back under control.

A young girl peeked over the seat in front of Angelique, and stared at her. “Pretty wings,” she whispered. “Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone there’s an angel on board.”

[111 words – some people believe 111 is an angel number, so for once I have deliberately exceeded 100 words!]


Ron’s poem ~ ‘Land, Sea and Air’

Silently passing above and below
Lifting pulling
Pushing me on
Further away than I have known
Over lands I’ll never walk
Unseen so needed
Connects back home

White horses and pushing clouds
Hair ruffled
Moving all unseen
Pulled in, pushed out, driving on
Powering on through
Left behind with you
With me everywhere

Touches us with distance between
Leaving exhaled
Into a mist
Seen through so unnoticed
Me not fulfilled
Outside this cocoon
Breathe together again

[76 words]
