by Donna Wolfe Gatti

Twenty-one years ago, I received the following message from Angel Dalia: “I come to you from Zebulun, which is your original planet. Zebulun is also one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Each tribe was named for their planet of origin.

I researched the Twelve Tribes, hoping to learn about the twelve planets, but my efforts were unsuccessful. Even though many scholars have written books and articles about the tribes, I couldn’t find anything that corresponded to Dalia’s message. Then she gave me another clue:

You are learning and gathering knowledge from many sources and all manner of works. You also have the capability to gain knowledge from your guardians.

Instead of confining my search to material already in print, Dalia wanted me to contact my spiritual guardians and ask for enlightenment. So I did, and a host of angels responded.

Archangel Uriel spoke to me as if I were an adult who still believed in fairy tales. “Do not be so innocent as to think that mankind derived from two people. The story of Adam and Eve is a parable.

In order to populate Earth, souls from twelve ethereal planets volunteered to come here and procreate. The selection committee chose volunteers based on individual talents, and emotional and psychological characteristics. Our souls won the right to inhabit Mother Earth.

Every human being is from one of these planets: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, Benjamin, Dan, Naphtali, Gad and Asher.

Which planet are you from? To find out, come to a free 30-minute lecture at the Festival of Light in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, on Sunday, November 10, 2013, at 3:15 PM.

Leaning Into Loss heartLeaning Into Loss–A Weekend Retreat Experience
Priest Field Pastoral Center
Kearneysville, West Virginia
November 1-3, 2013
Loss calls to mind death, divorce, and other major life changes.

But, we experience loss every day …

  • Discarding a favorite piece of clothing that is worn-out …
  • Each sunset marking the end of another day …
  • The seemingly unstoppable physical changes that accompany aging …
  • Job and residence changes for family, friends and self.

We often brush aside these ‘little losses’ robbing ourselves of the opportunity to practice for inevitable large grief events.

Leaning Into Loss offers a gentle look at your relationship with loss. In group sessions, exercises, and individual time, you’ll learn about:

  • Research efforts and findings in the new science of loss and bereavement;
  • Tools to access your own healing and forgiveness;
  • Ways to support others in their grief and loss processes; and
  • Resources and creative ideas for integration and transformation in your personal life and in the lives of those you love.

You will also experience generous time for connection, reflection, and the exploration of the trails and natural treasures of 40 magnificent acres of historic West Virginia.

This all-inclusive retreat includes:

  • Two nights double-occupancy lodging. Each room has two double-size beds, a private bath, and a balcony or patio overlooking Opequon Creek with gorgeous pastoral views. Single accommodations are available for an additional charge.
  • Six meals––dinner on Friday and Saturday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday; and
  • Healthy snacks, coffee, tea and water throughout the weekend.

We begin at 6:30 pm on Friday evening and will finish by 1:30 pm on Sunday afternoon.

Book early! Space is limited to ensure an intimate gathering. Register by October 19, 2013 and receive $35 off the $349 per person (double); $449 (single) fee.

Your retreat leaders are Rev. Linda M Zupan (Rev Z) and Candi Byrne. Rev Z, an ordained Unity minister, has facilitated hundreds of grief and loss sessions in a variety of individual and group settings. Candi Byrne is a transformational life coach and creator of the program, “Change Your Story, Transform Your Life––Seven Keys to Discovering and Embodying Your Ideal Self.” Candi is also the technical assistance contact for Angel Academy.

“When Angels Speak”–Free 140-page ebook

When Angels SpeakTwenty years ago, I gave myself a life-changing gift, and now I’d like to share it with you.

In search of my purpose in life, I booked a reading with a well-known psychic, Nadira Duran. I learned not only did I have a guardian angel named Dalia, she’d been tapping her foot waiting for me to awaken spiritually.

I had a job to do.

Angel Dalia said my purpose in life was to walk with Spirit and write books for the angels.

You see, while angels can work miracles, they can’t put pen to paper and publish books–that’s a material activity for physical beings.

Over a three-month period, Nadira channeled 18 messages from 13 angels, and I transcribed and compiled them into my first book, When Angels Speak: Messages from the Keepers of The Lion’s Gate.

The Messengers in When Angels Speak are: King Solomon; Mary, the Mother of Jesus; Chadeau, Protector of the Children; Sundar Singh, Ascended Master Teacher; Archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel; Isaac, Son of Abraham and Sarah; Carmen, Protector of the Abused; Vyada, Universal Master Teacher; Prophet Muhammad; and Queen Esther.

Some of the topics the angels speak about are: Star Children, The Awakening, How to Heal Yourself and Others, the Prophecies in Revelations, Fear, Depression, Soul Power, Physical Rejuvenation, and Love.

The print version of When Angels Speak is no longer available. Many people who’ve read my other three angel books–Angels and Alchemy, The Angel Diet Cookbook: How To Lose Weight and Gain Enlightenment, and Swedenborg’s Daughter: Memoirs of a Mystic–have lobbied for a reprint.

They want to study and absorb the messages of comfort, joy, and enlightenment delivered by God’s holy emissaries through Nadira and me.

My gift to them–and to all–is an ebook version of When Angels Speak.

No strings attached. Nothing else to buy, or sign up for. No fine print.


Please share the love–tell your Facebook friends, Twitter followers, LinkedIn contacts, and blog readers.

Hope this gift of When Angels Speak will prove as transformational for you as the original channeled messages were for me.

Do You Have An Angel Story?


Angel Academy invites you to submit a written account of your experiences with angels or spirit guides for inclusion in the forthcoming anthology, Angels in Action: Heaven Helped Me.

You can make a difference in this world when you share your story.

Your story can bring hope, comfort and peace of mind to those who question the existence of angels.

Your story can help others overcome fear and come out of the spiritual closet to share their experiences of angelic encounters.

Your story can affirm that help from heaven is available to anyone at any time.

Here are some words of encouragement from God’s angelic messengers:
Angel Dalia said, “It is most important to write down your stories, your thoughts and your feelings. Mark well your ledger of life, for there will be those who will come after you who will gain from your words. Perhaps the meaning will be quite different for them than it was for you.”

Angel Odessa said, “Do you feel that you cannot write down your ideas and experiences? Do you feel that you are not of the same greatness as others who came before you? You must recognize your own abilities, as this is one of your lessons.”

Ascended Master, Sundar Singh, said, “I say to you that there is great power within the words of mankind. And these words, when shared with your fellow man, can change the consciousness of that person.”

The Details
No need for concern about your writing skills–we care more about your story than we do about dangling participles!

We’re accepting stories up to 1,500 words in length; though the average submission is between 500-700 words.

Submission deadline is March 31, 2014.

You may submit more than one story.

You will receive one complimentary hard copy of the anthology.

We expect the book to be available in Fall 2014.

Please send your stories to: donna at angelacademy dot com

Many thanks and blessings for considering sharing your story.

Happy Father’s Day
By Donna Wolfe Gatti


I was stunned when my guardian angel, Dalia, said, “It was your choice as to whom you would be born to. You chose your parents.”

Angels don’t lie, so I believed her. And yet, I couldn’t help but wonder why I had chosen Clarence Eugene Wolfe to be my father. Our relationship was formal and distant, and no one ever called me Daddy’s Little Girl – that was my sister’s title. They were two of a kind and practically inseparable, while I was a loner, an odd duck amongst the Wolfes. Read more…

Have We Met?
By Candi Byrne

Do you believe in love at first sight? Instant chemistry?

You’ve come in contact with thousands of people, but very likely, you’ve only experienced insta-love a handful of times.

What is it that causes two people to “click” immediately? You can’t force it to happen…you can’t avoid it happening. It just happens. Read more…

Star Children–Radio Show Replay

As always, it was a pleasure being on The Divine Connector Radio Show with April Reynolds.

We talked about Star Children, in the wake of the shootings in Connecticut. We also chatted about my new book, “Swedenborg’s Daughter: Memoirs of a Mystic,” and I gave Angel Readings to three callers.

Listen to the end for a special offer from Angel Academy.
