MY FATHER WHO ARE IN HEAVEN
Do you find that you seek your father out in most of your relationships?
Forgiveness is an incredibly powerful practice but it can only come after deep healing work is done. It is not about forgetting what happened but about healing the deep wounds that we carry so that one day we wake up and we no longer feel the pain. Also, it is not about the person who hurt us but a gift to ourselves. We don’t even have to let the other person know that we have forgiven them. In fact, it is probably best if we don’t.
In my memoir about my father, I explore this subject in depth and share the tools that have helped me come to peace with my father and his death.

My Father Who Art In Heaven is not an ordinary memoirI wrote My Father Who Art in Heaven after my father’s death in 2014. He was diagnosed with a non cancerous brain tumour in 2008. In the summer of 2013 after years of treatment, he was given a clean bill of health and told to go home and enjoy the summer with his wife. When he went for his check up in September, the tumour was back with a vengeance. As it was inoperable, it was only a matter of time before he would die, but only after he slowly turned into a vegetable.
My memoir starts in November 2013, as I sat in the plane to go visit him in Paris for the first time in months. It is structured in three parts (thank you Shakespeare):
- Your father is going to die
- Your father is dead
- Your father never died
My Father Who Art in Heaven is not a morbid book. It is a story of love, magic and forgiveness. The main idea underlying the book is that it is never too late to make peace with your father.

It rests on a philosophy that everything is energy and there is no deathI was able to write it thanks to ten years of therapy on myself followed by over fifteen years of self development and training as a reiki master, clinical hypnotherapist and psychotherapist, emotional freedom technique therapist and a psychic. I am thrilled to have been able to evidence that these tools can be used effectively to deal with life as it comes, with no spiritual bypassing.
What people say after reading the first three chapters“I have been reading My Father who Art In Heaven and I cannot get enough! Last night I struggled to put it down to go to sleep it is so captivating. It is the perfect mix of raw and feel emotion and experience along with a fantastically real and informative magical side I feel is missing from alot of literature. A definite must read!” – Sara Selene
“Ange has a way with words that as her story unfolds it captivates the reader who then becomes entangled in the emotions, the story and engages all who read her beautiful story. This personal story about the relationship of a father and a daughter until the end of life is a must read for everyone.” – Joy Fairhall, Grief coach
It was also really interesting to see how you were guided all along but only realised that you were sometimes months after the events. This is very comforting as it evidences that the spirit world is always helping behind the scenes. There are no coincidences.
The biggest take away was the idea that everything is unfolding perfectly and that we need to trust the intelligence of the Universe. The most surprising aspect, even though it was a confirmation, was how your Dad contacted you psychically long before he died. All along you keep a healthy skepticism about it all which makes it more credible.” Stephanie Kakris, Law of Attraction and Manifesting Mentor
This has turned this journey into a beautiful opportunity to be in the present moment. Chantal, like me, is grateful that she has tools such as meditation and journaling to help her through the roller coaster of emotions that this is taking her on and urges us to learn these techniques NOW before the crisis hits, so that we are equipped to navigate these difficult times with grace. Chantal Vanderhaeghen is a mindfulness and intuitive coach. You can find her on Facebook at Unfold your Freedom.
Naomi Sturrock-Whitehead was drawn to my memoir because of its title and the fact that her father was in heaven and she felt she still had unresolved issues with him.
Naomi and I discussed how she committed to do work on herself so that her children would not suffer abuse at her hands but in her words, she abused herself and wondered if this was really better for her kids. Like me, Naomi has had a strained relationship with her mother and my memoir has also invited her to deepen her capacity with her mother too. In this interview, Naomi and I talked about forgiveness, growth, karma, what we choose before we incarnate on this earth plane and much more.
