Description

Like fellow Dubliner, Lorna Byrne, Patricia Buckley - the author of My Journey with the Angels - is a down-to-earth mystic. Patricia is gentle, funny and practical and 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.

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.

Our customer reviews

Patricia Buckley's memoir, My Journey with the Angels, will immediately bring to mind Frank McCourt's 'Tis. Born in Dublin in the early 1960s, her childhood and adolescence are almost too painful to recount: oldest of an ever expanding brood of children; daughter of an alcoholic, violent father and an exhausted, self-absorbed mother; beaten, overworked victim of aggressive, abusive men; sometimes homeless, often drunk, at one point imprisoned in a mental ward too painful, in deed. How does she survive? As a child Patricia saw and spoke with angels and often had fleeting contact with the dead. In this she was encouraged only by one grandmother and when that dear woman died, the girl realized she would have to deny these relationships or live at the mercy of those who thought her mad. Eventually she meets and marries a fine, hardworking and supportive man and has children, but she still keeps her angels at bay. It is not until her family is grown that Patricia again makes contact with the spiritual world and has the courage to confess this to her husband. Amazingly, he encourages her and she finds that many other people are receptive as well. In fact, by the 1990s, a great many people in the UK and America were very interested in angels; studies show that well over half of us believe in angels and that they play an active part in our lives. Today Patricia and Stephen Buckley run a very successful business, Angels of Ireland, but it is clearly the spiritual readings she performs for those who come seeking wisdom and healing that give her the most satisfaction. Although Buckley was raised as a Catholic and lives in a nominally Catholic land, the spiritualism encountered and embraced by her and her cohort seems unrelated to any religious creed or sect. The book, published by Penguin, is well written, formatted and edited while such colloquialisms as youse and howaya give it an Irish lilt that charms. Sure, and it does.
