IRENE MARIE ANGEL BAGS STORY
When I turned 40 I began to contemplate the more profound questions about my existence and true purpose in life. One night, as I sat in my office on Ocean Drive looking at a magnificent golden moon rising on the horizon of the dark Atlantic Ocean, I called out loud to the emptiness surrounding me, from a deep place in my soul, "God, why am I really here?!"
I have learnt over many years that all one needs to do is ask, and answers will be revealed. Since that soul seeking night decades ago, I have had many experiences that one might call mystical or psychic.
I have come to know with certainty that I do believe in God –The All Knowing - Divine Intelligence – Creator of the Universe - The Supreme Being, so many names we use to describe this Loving presence. And I believe in, and have experienced, Angels, Illuminated Beings and Spirits of all kinds.
In 2010 I received inspiration from an Angel I describe as my Guide or Guardian Angel, his spirit - yes his energy is masculine - seems to move with me day and night and I think he learns and grows wiser through his travels with me as I do with him. He told me I should carry a handbag of red. His inspiration, and my creative eye, lead me to create a red feathered bag to honor his suggestion- an Angel Bag.
As I started to carry my Angel Bag people would stop me all the time and comment on the beauty and uniqueness of the bag – and asked where they could get one. I decided to make more of my Angel Bags, right here in my hometown of Miami, Florida. I soon began to experience almost daily, a feeling of being pushed forward by a powerful mysterious force. Images would come across my mind – different colors, different shapes, different feathers, it was like a storm of information and pictures that were being sent to me along with beautiful sweet messages. And so began IRENE MARIE ANGEL BAGS.
