I have a sweet story for you today.
It’s about how Archangel Michael held my hand and guided me back home last Saturday (27th February 2016). He has done this for me before. There are many stories by others too about being guided home by him.
Why do I want to share this story? 1. Because I loved what happened. It made me happy. 2. Because I want you to have faith that we are not alone. 🙂
I was to travel back from San Francisco to San Jose on Saturday evening by the 6:15pm train.
Sounds straight forward enough? Yes. Except that I was the traveler. 😀 There are a few things I am absolutely terrified of: 1) Cockroaches 2) Grasshoppers 3) Driving long distances or traveling alone. “Driving long distances or traveling alone” because I have no sense of direction. You must have heard of people with a good sense of direction or a bad sense of direction? Well…I don’t have one. Not even a bad sense of direction. It really terrifies me.
Normally there is one single, simple, straight train from San Francisco to San Jose. But that day it was going to be different. There was some construction on the way. So the train would go only till Burlingame. There I’d need to take a bus to Hayward Park station, where I’d get the next train to San Jose.
For most people that’s no problem. But remember, we are talking about me here. So I tried getting my husband to agree to driving all the way to San Fransisco and picking me up. He tried telling me it won’t be scary. But I was getting more terrified by the minute. Finally my husband asked me, “It will take 1.5 hours for me to get there with the current traffic. Do you really want to wait that long, or just take the train?” I was about to say — JUST DRIVE HERE FOR HEAVENS’ SAKE!! But suddenly my left arm got very very hot. When Archangel Michael wants me to know he is around, he “holds” my left hand, which gets hot. This evening, instead of my left hand getting hot, my entire left arm got hot, so I knew he was trying to say something. And he said, “Take the train, I’ll take you home”.
So here I was, at the Caltrain station. Bought the ticket, and saw there were several gates to several platforms with several different trains. Brain freeze moment. Which gate?? Which train?? It didn’t say anywhere which train went where. I am not comfortable talking to strangers, and was wondering who to approach, when a lady standing near the gate closest to me turned to her friend and said, “This is the 6:15 train”. Cool! 😀 Problem solved.
Got a seat and sat down, and started to get nervous again. I thought to myself, “I wish I knew someone here who was going to San Jose so I’d feel better”. Almost immediately, the man sitting in front of me turned to someone else and announced loudly, “I am going to San Jose”. Cool! Problem solved. Plan of action: Follow the man.
All this while my left arm remained hot. I knew Archangel Michael was with me.
When we arrived at Burlingame station, I got off the train with others, but to my horror the man who said was going to San Jose had disappeared. I was going to press the panic button in my brain, when I spotted the ticket checker, and a lady walked up to her, and said, “I need to go to San Jose. What should I do next?”. The ticket checker gave her directions to go and look for the Hayward Park bus. So I took my finger off the “brain panic button” and mumbled, “I want to go to San Jose too”. The lady smiled brightly at me and said, “Let’s go!” 🙂 Another problem solved.
So I followed her, and suddenly found many people asking me which bus they needed to take to go to San Jose. Somehow knowing that others were as unsure as me made me feel a lot less of a dimwit. haha! Maybe I looked like I knew what I was doing even though I was pretty clueless.
Found the bus that had “Hayward Park” written on it, and all of us settled in.
My next problem was — how would I know which train to take from there?? Remember…this is me we are talking about – I’m morbidly afraid of going anywhere alone. The only thing scarier than traveling alone is the cockroach.
When the bus stopped, and I was reaching for the panic button again, I saw that there was only one train. I could go nowhere else. Phew! But just to be sure I asked the Caltrain employee standing there who confirmed that was the train. I was beginning to feel like a real pro by then.
Got settled in the train near a young Russian family. They had a 4 year old son. Just when I began to feel a little uncomfortable about being alone, the Russian mum called out to her son, “Mikhail!!” 😀 And I knew that was Archangel Michael saying he was there.
And in an hour I was at San Jose.
What was amazing was how I was guided at every step. I had to think of a question…and someone answered immediately.
There are so many instances of angels saving lives. My experience wasn’t really dramatic like that. But to me it meant everything, because I am not joking when I say I am afraid of traveling alone. So his being with me, and guiding me at every step was very important to me.
He has done this before for me. There have been other stories when I have been lost, and he guided me home.
Nothing is too small or too big for your angels. Never be afraid to ask for help and guidance. They will not live your life for you. They will not take away important life experiences from you. But they will make life much more pleasant and easier by guiding you and loving you.
If you feel lost, try this. Ask Archangel Michael to take you safely to your destination, and see what happens. By the way, he also helps if you are feeling lost in life, and need guidance in what step to take next. 🙂
Next week I will write more about Archangel Michael, how he helps us, and how to know when he is around.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your story!!! It is so cool how you got all those signs, both physical in your body, as well as, all the people answering the questions you were mentally asking! It makes me feel so very loved and taken care of. Thanks for sharing your story. It’s such a wonderful reminder that the spirit world can easy help us (me) with anything…we (I) just need to ask!

jennifer anderson says
Aw so glad you got back ok. Such a lovely story xxx
Swati Nigam says
Thank you Jennifer :-)))
I absolutely love what happened to you with Archangel Michael. He is so awesomely coolio 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing. Even though I have absolutely no sense of direction either, I drive people nuts asking about directions lol I’m totally pain-free asking 20 people the same way if I’m too dumb not to be able to figure it out on my own 🙂 When I was an au-pair-nanny some 20 years ago they had no automatic navigation system in the cars yet and one had to read the direction map, those huge paper things which I never figured out how to fold back again after using lol anyway, lucky me found a “map for dimwits” 🙂 On it were the streets painted and on each corner they wrote the name of the hotel or restaurant there or from a mall etc. That means if I looked on the map, it said your hotel is located directly next to Dunkin Donuts across from the mall xy and the hotels is painted in the colours blue-white… something like this 😉 Yayyy me, I found it every time :-))))) I guess as I’m a visual person I need it “painted” to get it lol
I’ve another AA Michael story to share: When I still “worked” with Jim (Savior’s Fire), he came to Germany to give a workshop. As fate would have it, some luggage of his got lost during his travels, so my aunt and I had to drive with him to the airport again to pick up his now found luggage. My aunt and I are both helpless direction-dimwits -and it was still the time without no navigation system in the car or at least she didn’t have one lol- so when the only way we both knew how to get to the airport was under construction, we did have a huge problem. We were afraid to tell Jim that we had absolutely no clue. He the American, we both from Germany, in our own city – soooo embarassing I can tell ya! Well, Jim said “No problem, let’s ask AA Mike for help.” My aunt and I looked at each other and said “Right” with that look of “omg, he’s gone nuts, how would AA Mike now how to get to the airport” looooooool Well, lo and behold AA Mike gave Jim directions (Jim said Mike stood like a traffic cop on the side of the road and gave directions with his hands, like waving left or right… I would have given my left arm to see HIM lol…and 30 min. later we were at the airport…my aunt and I were totally stunned 🙂 For a moment we told each other never ever to share that story, ‘coz two dimwit Germans get directions from an American and an Archangel…right… people would send us straight to the loony bin 😉
I totally get that yuk-feeling re. cockroaches, nothing more disgusting than those creepy crawlies. A friend of mine told me once that they are the only living beings who can’t be killed by poison or anything, they would even keep on living if the atomic bomb would hit, that means one needs to kill them by trampling on them, nothing else ends their disgusting life. I don’t mind grasshoppers, as long as they don’t jump on me. They are supposed to bring great luck, but so does a four-leaf-clover 😉

LOLOLOL!!! I LOVE that story! And the conclusion, “coz two dimwit Germans get directions from an American and an Archangel”!! hahaha!! This is too cool!!
That is such a cool story and I know how you hate the travelling alone thing so that is very exciting you did that even if it was scary as it was happening! Yay you! <3
Swati Nigam says
Thank you Anna! Lovely to see you here! :-)))))
I don’t feel lost. I feel so deeply sad. Maybe I am nothing, but wanted to be a bit something. Family, am myself …. no it is not good. Am lonely. But I am not unhappy. I had my love, was happy, so may it is enough for my life till now. I will be good. I have dogs, they need me, and am happy to give them home. So it is not bad.
Swati Nigam says
Jolanta, what do you want to be? Sending you love…
Thanks for sharing this. I have one main fear – fear of not being safe/protected. All my other fears branch off from that main one. I’m understanding slowly when and how I developed the fear. The teasing and ridiculing from my family started before I turned 5…It didn’t stop until I got sober almost 2 years ago, I’ll be 46 in July. I’m trying to protect the child inside me and learn better behaviors.
I also wanted to ask if you can check to see how many newsletters I’m getting? I only need 1. Thanks again for sharing your story!
Swati Nigam says
Elaine, have you done EFT to let go of the fear? Try it yourself. If it doesn’t help, book a session with me, and we’ll get rid of the fears.
You must have signed up for 2 different books, that’s why you get two emails. Is this the email address you signed up with?
