Dubliner Patricia Buckley is a down-to-earth mystic - gentle, funny and practical. After facing many challenges and much
struggle she finally accepted the presence of angels in her life a decade ago. Since then she has become a highly respected channel for the
wisdom of the angels.

From as early as she can remember , Patricia took the presence of the angels for granted. She also took for granted that she could speak to the spirit world. Though her childhood was often tough and she went through the torments of poverty, neglect and abuse, the angels and the spirit world made her feel secure and cherished.

As she got older , life got even tougher, she slept rough; she was committed to a mental ward and put on medication; a boyfriend tried to kill her. She gave up on the angels . Though she found love in a good marrige and joy in the birth of her children, for nearly twenty years until she was forty , Patricia remained fragile and dependent on tranquillizers.

In 2002 she was woken up by a chance encounter with someone who recognised her hidden spiritual energy. She gave up on the pills and she welcomed the angels back into her life. She knew the time had come to share her gift with the world.

Now she shares her story in My Journey with the Angels; a wonderful memoir of growing up in Dublin, a moving account of how she came to terms with her extraordinary gifts, and an inspirational guide - full of examples from her life and her work - to the wisdom of the angels.

Excerpt
From a young age, Patricia Buckley could see angels and speak to them, but it brought her a lot of misery when no one believed her except her Nanny Bridget, who also had the gift. After Bridget's death and the memory of childhood sexual abuse by a neighbour, as well as an abusive relationship in which she was so badly beaten she nearly died, Patricia was so exhausted she went to the doctor. She soon found herself in psychiatric care undergoing electric shock treatment. How she survived it and went on to embrace her gift, and even to help the Garda Siochana with a high-profile disappearance case, is revealed in this second extract of her inspirational memoir, My Journey With The Angels.

To the American reader, Patricia Buckley's memoir, My Journey with the Angels, will immediately bring to mind Frank McCourt's 'Tis. Born in Dublin in the early 1960s, her childhood and adolescence are almost too painful to recount: oldest of an ever expanding brood of children; daughter of an alcoholic, violent father and an exhausted, self-absorbed mother; beaten, overworked victim of aggressive, abusive men; sometimes homeless, often drunk, at one point imprisoned in a mental ward�too painful, in deed.
How does she survive? As a child Patricia saw and spoke with angels and often had fleeting contact with the dead. In this she was encouraged only by one grandmother and when that dear woman died, the girl realized she would have to deny these relationships or live at the mercy of those who thought her mad. Eventually she meets and marries a fine, hardworking and supportive man and has children, but she still keeps her angels at bay.
It is not until her family is grown that Patricia again makes contact with the spiritual world and has the courage to confess this to her husband. Amazingly, he encourages her and she finds that many other people are receptive as well. In fact, by the 1990s, a great many people in the UK and America were very interested in angels; studies show that well over half of us believe in angels and that they play an active part in our lives. Today Patricia and Stephen Buckley run a very successful business, Angels of Ireland, but it is clearly the spiritual readings she performs for those who come seeking wisdom and healing that give her the most satisfaction. Although Buckley was raised as a Catholic and lives in a nominally Catholic land, the spiritualism encountered and embraced by her and her cohort seems unrelated to any religious creed or sect.
The book, published by Penguin, is well written, formatted and edited while such colloquialisms as youse and howaya give it an Irish lilt that charms. Sure, and it does.





An Amazing Journey – A Glimpse behind the Scene of the Spirit World
“My Journey with the Angels” is Patricia Buckley’s remarkable story of growing up with a unique gift for communicating with angels in the spirit world. Her gift was misunderstood, often thought of as “madness.”
She tells of the trauma of abuse, poverty, exhaustion, fear, and loneliness. She learned to rely on communicating with angels for feelings of security and affirmation. They give her comfort and courage, healing and guidance, and help her with communication.
Patricia’s writing is compelling, magically drawing the reader into her story. Even in relating her deepest hour of trial Patricia has a positive word of gratitude, insight, compassion, and is able to see the humor in a situation. Patricia’s story takes place in Ireland and in England. The American reader will note that the vocabulary has a distinctive flavor and vocabulary of the locale with an Irish/English vernacular.
For many years Patricia laid her gift aside because of the tormenting harassment of ridicule and misunderstanding. Today she is exercising her gift and is able to offer comfort and help to many through her gift of communication with angels.
“My Journey with the Angels: An Inspiring True Story of Healing and the Wisdom of Angels” is a deeply moving spiritual journey demonstrating determination and courage.
A complimentary copy of the book was given me for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

My Journey with the Angels: An Inspiring True Story of Healing and the Wisdom of Angels
Patricia Buckley
2011

“My Journey with the Angels: An Inspiring True Story of Healing and the Wisdom of Angels” is the story of Patricia Buckley’s experiences with angels and how they have impacted her life. Patricia’s story includes physical and emotional abuse as well as years of depression and anxiety. Her relationships with angels have helped to free her from depression and to create a life in which she assists others in connecting with the spirit world. This is a story about spiritual openness and personal acceptance.

At the age of six, Patricia encountered the spirit of a little boy who’d drowned. It was the first time she had come face-to-face with a spirit, but little Patricia was already aware of the angels in her life. Conversations with the angels that began when Patricia was seven encouraged a sense of protection and guidance. But she learned early on that talking about the angels led to negative responses from her parents. As a result, Patricia learned to keep the angels secret while also learning to love and appreciate their presence in her life.

While Patricia embraced the angels and later shared her secret with her paternal grandmother who could also see them, her home life was rife with physical abuse by her alcoholic father and emotional detachment from her chronically depressed mother. As the oldest child, Patricia was burdened with helping her mother care for her many siblings. Once she grew older, Patricia also became the main breadwinner in a household where her mother stayed home and her father worked sporadically. During adolescence, Patricia gave impromptu readings to complete strangers when spirits of their relatives approached her. In her late teens, the hardship of working full-time and assisting her mother with caretaking duties became too much for Patricia and she collapsed under the weight of her responsibilities. After a three month stay in a mental health hospital, Patricia denounced the angels and continued to use antidepressants into late adulthood. Many years later, after marrying and establishing her family, Patricia re-opened her heart to the angels and began to follow the path that was her true destiny.

This story will challenge the beliefs of many who read it, but it is about more than accepting whether or not Patricia Buckley has the ability to see angels and communicate with the spirit world. The main theme of this story is having the strength and courage to be who you truly are in a world that will readily deny your truth due to fear or misunderstanding. The beauty in this book goes beyond the spiritual content. Patricia’s story is a simple testament to how the universe will open up to you when you exist in the world as your authentic self.

“My Journey with the Angels” is a stunning book that offers hope for every life whether you believe in angels or not. I highly recommend it.
