HOPE IN THE CITY
altering perspectives by Audrey HopeHOW TO PURCHASE AN ANGEL IN SANTA
This was the summer of 92. Donna Sheratan and her husband were
sailing on their yacht from Palm Beach, Florida to the Bahamas. Donna
suffered with kidney problems since the age of 4 and now at age 30, she
was bedridden. She decided that a few months of living on a boat was better
than dying in a hospital. She put her life in Gods hands. Then there
was the storm!
After the angels healed Donna, she had the courage to leave her husband and her two million-dollar townhouse and head for Los Angeles with her suitcase and her dream. As a little girl, she had an inner light that had manifested through her hands as a gift for painting. She discovered her talent after an experience that had left a deep impression on her soul. When her grandmother took her to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Goya painting of a little boy in a red suit, the "Don Maneul", transfixed her. Donna says, "I stood unable to move, as if the painting spoke to me, and I knew I would become an artist."
After 92, and the boat and the white light, her next painting was an angel, and then another one and another one. Her amazing work has found its way into the homes of celebrities, humanitarians, and spiritual leaders. Their market value range from 10,000 to 25,000 dollars and they are sold all over the world. Donna even graced her story in the major media with Larry King, CNN and the cover of PEOPLE MAGZINE. Because when you see her work, you are healed!
When she paints the angels she feels their energy flow through her. Her work is really an extension of her life experience. She dreams or has a vision of the angelic realm and then transfers a feeling of peace to the viewer. Each painting is unique and had its own purpose. It is a process that usually takes 60-90 days. To prepare and infuse the highest vibration, she prays and meditates and maintains a strict diet.
Her art enables others to have their own angel encounter. This aligns
with her mission to help others follow their dreams and their life purpose.
Once for example, George Hyatt, a straight-laced newsman from Washington,
interviewed Donna. He was the perfect skeptic, a man with a reputation
for detail and hard facts. In the middle of the interview, the blood drained
from his face.
And then there are the miracles that are documented. One in 1995 Donna was strolling on Venice Beach with her friend Rama. Suddenly Rama was hit by a stray bullet to the upper back. He was bleeding to death. Donna put one hand on his heart and one on his wound with 100 percent faith. When she took her hand off, the bleeding was stopped. Rama fully recovered and left the hospital the next day. At UCLA Hospital, they call Rama the "miracle boy."
Donnas life is a testimony of faith. She has met all the challenges. There was the kidney problems, having to leave her husband because of her desire to paint, and the death of her son Avery, who died while she was giving birth. She told me that it was the angels that gave her the strength to move forward. The desperate fight for survival took her inside her self, where she discovered a well of creativity. Her words-"Through all the darkness, there had been a consistent reminder of light always shinning, always guiding me. I am grateful for the conflict because I believe the suffering had forced me to come closer to that divine light, which shines in each of us."
It might be hard to believe in angels. There is no evidence that would hold up in a court of law-Angels dont leave foot prints. But for those touched by an angel, their experience brings their own ring of truth. This is proven by the way peoples lives are transformed, in the peace they find by the experience. In our sane scientific world, 75 percent of Americans believe in angels and almost 35 percent claim to have had a personal encounter with them. Of the 20 million who had a brush with death 8 million said they were met by angels.
Angels hover all around us. They had existed in every religion, in every culture, in every civilization since the beginning of time. Though scientists try to explain them, and theologians debate them, and artist and poets try to capture them, angels remain. Their significance is not in who or what they are, but in what they do. By putting our attention on them, we are led into the extraordinary, into a landscape of miracle-minded thinking-that can expand our consciousness, open our hearts and turn humanness into divinity.
Donna currently lives in NY, and paints in a church, but now she feels it is time to come back west, if the opportunity presents itself. Experience Donnas paintings. To have them on your wall , is look at Gods grace. Donnas are for sale. A small price to pay for a touch of heaven. Contact Donna Sheratan at 310 288-3514. www.angelvisions.com
