Soul Kisses Angel Chronicles
Help in a Fire...
This incident is not so laughable as helping the pigs in
Angels and Pigs... - but my life was spared
because of the intervention I received by my guardian angel.
It was Boxing Day morning very early (5:00a.m.) I lived in a 12
story high-rise - and unfortunately a fire broke out in the basement
of the building. I lived on the 6th floor - I also had a roommate.
I awoke to hear some commotion in the hallway - and went to the door
to see what was the matter - I was met by a haze of grey smoke when I
opened the door - realizing we had better get the cats and leave - we
tried to do that - I put my cat in a duffel bag that I had splashed
water in and over - grabbed my coat and ran down the hall with the cat
in the bag.
I opened the end stairwell door and started to descend - the smoke
was getting thicker and thicker - I kept going - and I knew I was near
the ground level - all I could do was hold onto the railing for
guidance - I could see nothing but black smoke.
All of the sudden a voice right in front of me said "Elaine... Do
you really want to die"?? I shouted out "No"... then I turned around
and instantly headed back up the stairwell - I heard a voice up above
me saying "Elaine... you can't go that way" I followed the voice up to
the top (which turned out to be the 3rd floor) - I was just half a
flight of stairs away from the fire itself in the basement when I
My roommate met me at the 3rd floor stairwell door, and said that
we where trapped in the building... there where 6 of us with our pets
stranded out on the balcony of someone's apartment for 2 hours until
the smoke had subsided enough for us to exit the building.
Hours later we where given permission to return to our apartment,
and I was shaking at the thought that I almost opened the door at the
bottom of that stairwell exactly where the fire was burning. I
was spoken to by my guardian angel whose voice was a clear and concise
as anything I have ever heard. Once again - I gave thanks for
the guidance that was provided for me that day.
As I said before - we are never alone!
