Leigh Anne Marshall
Leigh Anne Marshall is
inspired to create Angel portraits as a reminder that there is a
magnificent angel of Love and Light within each of us.
Because of my near-death experience, I tend to agree with my
Recently, Leigh Anne had her art displayed on the cover of the
July 2003 issue of the Texas-based new thought magazine,
"Indigo Sun." The cover image is titled
“Betty” and was inspired by my dear friend and best-selling
author, Betty J. Eadie, who has touched the lives of so many
people with her book, “Embraced by the Light.”
I remember the first time I saw the Angel portrait of Betty.
It took my breath away. In fact, I was so moved by the
exquisite piece that I asked Leigh Anne if I could keep it until
it was to be given to its rightful owner. The moment Leigh
Anne brought the drawing into my home, I put it up on my office
wall, next to the computer where I compose all my music.
Thank goodness I kept the portrait, because it helped inspire me
to write what I think to be one of my most important songs to
date ... "Ode to the Angel."
I had a dream one night about regular people turning into Angels
right before a plane was to crash into a tall building. In
the dream, the people were scared of a mad man who had taken a
plane hostage. After an hour of threats and cruelty, one
man had had it! He stood up boldly on the plane, shouting
out that God had never intended for us to give in to our fear!
Once he said this, I saw all the people on the plane grow huge
wings, which ripped through their clothing and exposed diamond
like shimmering garments underneath. I saw all get up,
drop their old clothing to the floor and surround their would be
hijacker holding hands.
Even though the plane did crash, no one was really hurt.
In fact, I realized that the plane was nothing more than an
illusion, as was the rage the mad man was projecting forward.
After a great explosion of fire, shattering glass and falling
debris, I saw all who were on the plane hovering in the air,
forming in a circle around the angry man. Everyone stood
unmoving until the mad man came to terms with what it was he had
As soon as he realized he had caused a travesty, I saw all
members of the circle bestow nothing but forgiveness and grace
upon him. And in what seemed to be a very short moment
later, I watched as all ascended into Heaven to be with God.
This dream just happened to occur two nights before 9/11.
I remember waking up having a very ominous feeling after the
dream was done. I felt as if I had been on that plane
myself. Actually, what I thought was perhaps I was to be
in a plane accident of some sort. The next day I told a
few of my loved ones what I had dreamt and what I thought it
meant. Of course no one wanted to hear what seemed to be a
terrible premonition. The next night I could not sleep.
I got up and decided to start working on a new song. As I
was putting drum loops together, I glanced over at Leigh Anne's
Angel portrait of Betty, and was instantly reminded about the
people emerging as Angels in my dream. A few short hours
later, I had composed "Ode's" instrumental track with
much of the song’s lyrics intact. Just as I was
finishing up the song, I got an instant message on my computer
from my friend Christine and then Leigh Anne, saying that the
World-Trade building had been crashed into by a plane. As
I watched the second plane crash into the other building, I
realized that this is what my dream had been about. I knew
the time for all of us to realize the Angel within had come.
Leigh Anne agrees totally with me. We are here to realize
the Angel within! This is why she works tirelessly on her
amazing Angel portraits.
Leigh Anne's renderings of Angels never cease to amaze me, for
every one she paints, a slightly different style comes forth in
her pastel images. I always look forward to seeing what
manifests, always knowing that Divinity has moved through her.
Leigh Anne is here to remind all of us that no matter
who we are, we all have the potential to touch lives and be
each other. Practicing Love in everything we do brings
that Angel forward.
Now having worked side-by-side with Leigh Anne Marshall since
2000, I have seen nothing less come from her. For she has
been nothing but an Angel to me!
