Patricia Buckley is a down-to-earth mystic - gentle, funny and practical. In the last decade, through her joyous embrace of the angels in her life, she has been able to give hope to countless wounded souls who have come to her seeking guidance. From as early as she can remember, Patricia took for granted that she could speak to angels and dead people. And though her childhood was blighted by poverty, neglect and abuse, the spirit world made her feel secure and cherished. However, after many tough years - during which she was committed to a mental ward, was nearly killed by an abusive boyfriend and eventually became homeless - she gave up on that part of her life. Patricia found love in a good marriage and joy in the birth of her children. And yet for twenty years she remained fragile and dependent on tranquillisers. That was until a chance encounter woke up her hidden spiritual energies and revived her passion for living. The time had come to share her gifts with the world. Now, Patricia shares her story in My Journey with the Angels - a heart-breaking memoir of a Dublin childhood, a moving account of how she came to accept her extraordinary gifts, and an inspirational guide - full of examples from her life and work - to the wisdom of the angels.
