NEW GLASGOW – Karen Forrest talks to angels, but she says she isn’t special.

Karen Forrest, the Angel Lady, will be speaking at the library in New Glasgow on Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. 

She trained extensively in order to be able to communicate with divine beings, starting with a three-hour workshop in Petawawa, Ont.

“When I first started out, it was for myself,” she said, adding that it ended up changing her life.

She’s referred to as the Angel Lady and is bringing practical tips on how to be at peace to the New Glasgow Public Library on Wednesday.

Before she started on her spiritual path, she says she was always worrying.

Within three to four weeks, she felt very relaxed and peaceful.

“I haven’t always talked to angels and dead people.”

Since her first workshop, she has trained with numerous people, including Doreen Virtue, founder of Angel Therapy.

It’s described as a non-denominational healing method, which involves communicating with someone’s guardian angels. 

Forrest is a retired military nurse, specializing in mental health.

She uses that experience in her healing sessions.

She offers angel readings, which allow people to ask specific questions about their life choices.

She also works as a medium, reassuring people their loved ones are okay, giving them messages and offering healing through the grief.

She used to do grief counseling, but finds the healing process faster through speaking “directly to the source.”

As well as her sessions, she also offers training workshops on how to feel more peaceful and communicate with divine beings.

“If people weren’t worrying so much, they’d be peaceful.”

She doesn’t want people to have to rely on her and says everyone has the ability.

Holding intent and trusting your intuition is key. She says intuition and divine guidance are the same thing.

Everyone has at least two guardian angels from birth, she says, but it’s separate from your deceased relatives.

Forrest describes angels as “pure love and pure light,” and says they sit at a higher vibration than spirits.

As well as her talk at the library, she’ll also be doing a book signing at Coles in the Highland Square Mall on Friday from 12 p.m. until 2 p.m., where she’ll offer free angel messages, autograph her books and answer questions.

“I do it because I want a way to give back to the community.” 

She has written three books, two Angels of the Maritimes volumes and one called Canadian Angels.

Her lecture at the library will be an hour long, where she’ll talk about the number one contribution to world peace – being at peace yourself.

She’ll talk about how to get there, teach how to ask for divine help, and how to do a one-minute peace mediation.

It’ll be followed by a question and answer portion.

She says she’s surprised by how many people come to her lectures. Her target audience is the mainstream crowd.

“I enjoy talking to people,” she says, adding that this is her second time speaking in New Glasgow.

The free lecture starts at 7 p.m.

    God has repeatedly made it clear in his Word that guidance is never to be obtained from mediums, physics or sorcerers, but rather, from the Lord himself.If one cannot believe this then they cannot believe in Spirits Please educate yourselves with words of truth. 1 Timothy 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Psalms 115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence. Psalms 146:4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish Ecclesiastes 9:5,6 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10 1 Timothy 4:1,1 Timothy 2:5 Isaiah 8:19

    Surely full of good intentions, though there seem to be certain scriptural prohibitions on what is going on here. (Talking to the departed). Those who would call themselves Christian might want to deeply search their motives before attending such an event. This strikes me as a new-age-esque sort of thing which emphasizes the individual's contact with the divine and that the individual can obtain this on their own. Being at peace with oneself contributes to world peace. However, it is only when we see our neighbors as ourselves that such peace can be effected. The cult of self endorsed by much of contemporary society is the destruction of this peace. I can't help but see much of the modern angel industry as endorsing this cult. There is no replacement for a structured communal and private prayer habit. Revelation can happen in the Highland Square Mall as well as anywhere, but one is surely better able to receive it when prepared by prayer (especially the Jesus Prayer) . . . and what one finds is not always as comforting or affirming as a guardian angel.

    I spoke to God directly, and before my prayer was finished, He brought me the calm I needed...less than 4 seconds. Be very aware of be misguided by good intentions.
