I’m sitting here chatting with Angel Hosus about what I should write about for the newsletter and he told me to write about the things that are on my mind. I was thinking about people feeling lonely, but not just lonely, feeling like nobody loves them at all.
As we sat in Carton House Hotel in January last year I told my friend and agent Jean that I could see love as a physical force. Jean, who has known and worked with me for more than ten years, was shocked.
Last week I was in London with my son Owen for lunch with a friend. We were early so we went for a walk in Hyde Park. It was a crisp, cold morning with the sun peeping through every now and then. There were lots of people in the park, all of course with guardian angels.
Parents are having a tough time at the moment; many are finding themselves under financial pressure and are struggling to give their children the material things that others have. There is much more to life than material things and being a good parent doesn’t depend on giving your children everything they want. The most important thing you can do for your child is to love them, and teach them about love.
If you feel cynical or disbelieving about the whole idea of angels, why not give yourself a little Christmas present and suspend your disbelief for the season. The angels ask that everyone try and open up to the possibility that there is more to this life than the material – even just for 24 hours this Christmas. What have you got to lose?
I have been seeing and talking to angels since I was a baby. I see angels physically as I would see you standing in front of me. I see and talk to them every day. I know that for some people this sounds crazy -- your gut reaction may be to stop reading this now -- but I would ask you to suspend your cynicism for just a few moments and see if anything I am saying resonates with you.

The angels tell me that many of us are so busy that we forget to live life and enjoy the ordinary everyday pleasures. We try to cram so much into our busy lives that we actually forget what is important. Many of us place too much importance on money and material things. Having some money is of course important but the angels keep telling me to remind you that when you die you can bring no money or material things to Heaven with you. What you do bring with you are your memories and all the love you felt on this earth.
Each and every one of us has a unique role to play in this world -- no one else can play this part. No one is supposed to end their own life, when they do, it's as if a link in a chain is broken and it slows down the progress of humanity. We all need each other. When someone commits suicide it's as if everyone around the world shrinks a little.
Mother’s Day is a time for all of us - those of us who are still lucky enough to have our mothers with us, and those of us who have mothers in heaven - to honour our mothers. Don’t let this opportunity to acknowledge your mother, at least in a small way go past.
