A psychic reading and belief in herself has lead Rosemary Louise Gallagher on a journey of faith, love and friendship.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would one day be a published author and be reading tarot cards for a living … but never say never!
I remember going to a psychic/medium when I was 45 years old who told me, at the age of 50, I would write a book and that I would became a very successful tarot reader. She also told me that I would meet a man who would change my life. At that time, I had just started learning how to read the tarot, so I was pleased to hear that I was going to be good at it! However, I definitely was not a writer and had never written anything, nor did I really have any desire to do so. Well that soon changed when I met the man she told me about a year later, and yes this encounter did change my life.
My spiritual journey escalated; and after a few years of emotional turmoil I tapped into a creative talent that I didn’t know I had. I needed to find an outlet to express my feelings; unfortunately they were unrequited! So at the suggestion of my sister I started journaling my thoughts and emotions and before I knew it my fingers took on a life of their own.
I wrote my story in just 2 months. Not bad for someone who had never written before. I believe my angels played a big part in channeling this story through to me. You see, I’ve always had a very strong connection with my guardian angel and the angelic world so I wasn’t at all surprised they ended becoming a big part of the story line of my book. Although, when I started writing I didn’t plan on that happening as I was always quite shy and a little embarrassed talking openly about my connection with the angelic world. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and some people think you’re crazy when you tell them that you talk to angels and that they talk back to you!
But I’m so glad it did as I think it adds a lovely spiritual touch to the story. I also wanted to enlighten readers who are not aware or open to the angelic realm that angels are around us all the time and anyone can have access to them, all you have to do is invite them into your life and they’ll be there to help and guide you – always.
