I always liked the idea of angels ever since I was small. My mum used to tell me about them and how they watch over us.
As I grew up, I developed anxiety. I was so anxious about everything, from getting sick to being away from my family in case something happened. I couldn't sleep at night, and I cried, and prayed that I would be at least able to sleep for a few hours.
My job at the time was a disability support worker which is so rewarding, but stressful, [because] sometimes I would worry about my clients. I went on a staff getaway up to Tambourine Mountain, in Australia, which is renowned for its spirituality.
I was unable to sleep there either, and was tossing and turning for hours. After a while I decided to just lay still and as I did I felt the loudest rushing past my ears and it felt like I was being sucked down into the bed. Usually I fight this feeling, but I didn't feel like fighting it this particular time. It was as though I was in a train tunnel.
I was still awake, but I saw myself rushing upwards towards a blue sky surrounded by clouds. There were people around me singing, but I could not see them, I could only feel their presence. They appeared as white blurs. I was speeding up through clouds and singing voices.
The main voice singing was that of a man, and his voice was so familiar, but at the same time I did not know him. He was singing a song I had never heard in my life and I still remember the lyrics being about freedom and being lifted up, "do not be afraid".
This experience ended quickly, and I was in tears from the sheer amazement and beauty of it.
I slept soundly after that. I believe that this man is my guardian angel, as his voice just sounds like heaven to me. Whenever I think about it I get goosebumps and feel teary. I am only 21 but have been told I'm an old soul. I love the idea that we have angels around us, and am thankful that I was helped that night.
