Welcome to Guided by Angels

Thank you so much for stopping by, it’s good to have you here!

The topics may vary, but at the heart of it all will be my musings on how we can embrace the angelic and spiritual vibrations to create a more harmonious world. With a dash of ghosts, spirits and the paranormal, the things which drew me to the spiritual side of life in the beginning.

I look forward to connecting with you.

You can expect to receive your first issue of Guided By Angels very soon, as I publish a letter every Sunday. It will be delivered directly to your inbox, and all my past letters are available online here.

There will also be a monthly tarot card or Oracle card spread, to see what the month ahead could hold.

I would love to know what drew you here, hit reply, or send an email to tracyobrien@substack.com and tell me a bit about yourself. I love hearing from you, so don’t be shy.

Love and Light

New to me?

If you’re not one of my friends or family members who have subscribed to this newsletter because I asked you to, then hello! Here’s a bit about me:

My name is Tracy, I live on the beautiful Isle of Wight with my wife and partner of 23 years and our 5 rescue cats. No clichés here… Due to health issues, I do not currently have a job, but in the past have had many jobs - chef at the Savoy Hotel, cook at a couple of Outward Bound centres, Eton College, followed by many and varied jobs in the UK and abroad. I even designed a few knitting patterns, for more information look on my website. I am currently about to start my fourth year of an English Literature/Creative Writing degree with the Open University, three years down, three to go.


When I am not writing or studying I enjoy painting, both watercolour and acrylic, knitting, patchwork, spinning (yarn that is, not the bike things), and gardening.
