The Archangel Gabriel first appeared to me in September of 2011 bringing the news that I was to have another child. At the time, I had two beautiful children and a husband who had little Interest In having a third. My husband and I felt truly blessed since we had suffered through four miscarriages by the time I had my second child, which I had assumed was my last.
I had spent years working privately with my ancestors and guides using Spirits based on the work of Allen Kardec. I was holding a spiritual mass (misa In Spanish) In which we pray to God, Jesus and Mary before asking the ancestors and guides for messages. This was only my third time to serve as a medium for a misa and I was nervous. So, I just sat listening and waiting when all of a sudden I heard a voice In my head ask: “Camille, don’t you see the Archangel Gabriel there next to you?”
In a flash, I saw In my mind’s eye the figure of a huge, glowing angel. It filled the tiny kitchen of my friend’s apartment from the countertop to the ceiling. Knowing nothing more than the names of a few Archangels, I stayed awake for hours that night researching Gabriel online. I read right past the description of Gabriel as one helps with conception, adoption and so forth. I focused Instead on his role In psychic development since that Is what I was doing when he appeared.
Soon after, Gabriel came to me, again. This time, she appeared during the reading of the Annunciation at church. As the scripture was read, I got chills and then, In my mind’s eye, saw Gabriel, along with Archangel Michael and Raphael floating above me. My attention was drawn to a part of the reading I don’t ever recall hearing before. “And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son In her old age: and this Is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be Impossible.” Tears began to roll down my cheeks as a knowing came over me. The Angels wanted me to hear Elisabeth’s story and know that the same was possible for me.
As I heard the last line of the reading, I knew also that the key to releasing my fears lay In Mary’s response to Gabriel. “And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be It unto me according to thy word.” I knew I had to follow her example and fearlessly open my heart to the miracle God wanted to bestow upon me. After I had taken communion, Jesus himself appeared In my minds’ eye floating above me. It was a first. I was overwhelmed, but tried to maintain my composure as I listened to see If he would speak to me. “I come to give you the same news that Gabriel delivered to my mother. You will bear a son… He will be of true greatness.”
Two weeks later, on New Year’s Eve, Gabriel sent a message: “In one week.” I knew It was the day we would conceive. During the week that followed, I finally told my husband about the dreams and signs, but left out the day we were supposed to conceive. He was hesitant. After some soul searching and consulting Archangel Michael cards, he asked me—on the appointed day—If I was ready to make a baby. I said ‘yes.’
I am now expecting my third child.
