About C.A. Starfire

C.A. Starfire has been exploring the metaphysical and spiritual all her life, beginning with several out of body experiences as a small child, then learning Transcendental Meditation as a pre-teen, alpha brainwave programming in her mid teens, and energy work and self-guided meditation and visualisation in her late teens. She began doing readings and guided visualisations for friends, family, and coworkers as a young adult.

Having been partially raised by her maternal grandmother who enjoyed saying, "You can call me anything, just don't call me late for dinner!", she cheerfully answers to Chris, Carys, Cats, Starfire, and quite a few nicknames.

Housebound due to disabling chronic illness, she enjoys spending time with her husband and cats, "seeing" her friends and family online, and writing.

In 2009 she found was again able to do intuitive and psychic readings and opened Starfire Studio.

Her hobbies include reading, organic gardening, herbalism, digital painting, knitting, felting, photography, cat-herding, and rainbow collecting.

She lives in a funny cattycorner-shaped cottage on 20 acres in the Lorane Wine Valley with her husband and nine house cats. They share the acreage with Luna, a Maine Coon cat who shuns houses, deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, hawks, owls, snakes, lizards, and many other sorts of wildlife. The land is covered in Douglas fir, Oregon white oak, apple trees, crab apple trees, grapes, medlars, blackberries, wild roses, and an abundance of herbs and wild plants.

Her first book, "Visits From Beyond: True Stories of After Death Encounters", was published in June 2012, and her second, "Angelic Encounters: True Stories of Angelic Protection, Assistance, and Comfort", was published August 2012. Both are available at better e-book retailers everywhere.

Review by: Britt Oosterlee on April 19, 2013 :
An interesting work in which the stories of people who believe they have seen angels are told. The book contains stories relating different encounters and ways in which angels have helped people, directly or indirectly, in a corporeal manifestation or just as a voice or sensation.
I personally don't believe in angels and find it especially interesting to see how people are sometimes willing to interpret anything as an angelic encounter. Sometimes they meet a person who somehow helps them, and then they assume that just because this had a positive outcome this person was an angel, whereas in my opinion it could very well just have been an ordinary person who just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
That being said, there are also stories that are unexplainable and leave you guessing at what could explain an occurrence.

One thing that I find odd about the angelic encounters is that often only some people are saved, and not everybody. It seems strange to me that, if there are angels, they would act so randomly, saving for instance one child, but not his or her brother or sister. Usually some void explanation is given ('it was his/her time', 'he/she fulfilled a purpose'), but there is no real reason as to why some people are saved and others not. I know it is said that we cannot know why god takes away some people, but it leaves me somewhat dissatisfied with the concept of angelic intervention.

This book is a great collection of Faith-Inspiring Real And Original Events collected by author through her Facebook. These are events which show us how Angels were sent to protect People. Some Angels Helped By Their Actions, Some By Their Advises, Some Providing Relief by Dancing over deathbeds of Dying People. So, Concludingly i Would say that the collection is just enough to regain ur Lost Faith In God and Angels.

The short, choppy sentences distracted me from really enjoying the book. People in the stories were only identified by initials, making it seem more like fiction than true story. That said, the stories were interesting and inspiring and I would like to read another book by this author.

Review by: Susan Frances on Jan. 22, 2013 :
Celestial bodies in the form of angels possessing supernatural sensory abilities play a significant role in each story cited by author C.A. Starfire in her book Angelic Encounters: True Stories of Angelic Protection, Assistance, and Comfort. Most people are familiar with angels through movies like It’s a Wonderful Life when the angel Clarence endeavors to earn his wings by helping Jimmy Stewart’s character George Bailey to see that his life is worth living.

The encounters which Starfire describe have a few common denominators with the depiction of the angel Clarence such as their intent to help and do good. The angels in the person’s vision are faces which have never been seen before, though it’s not the angel’s face that the people remember afterwards but the glowing aura of theses celestial forms. It’s also not the words from the angels that make an impact on these witnesses but the impression which the angels leave in the people’s minds.

The collection which Starfire has accumulated on angelic encounters show several differences with the preconceived idea of angels formed by Hollywood screenwriters and filmmakers. Still, Starfire’s book fodders the belief that angels do come to mortals in visions and their purpose is to help much like the angel Clarence did in Jimmy Stewart’s movie.
