Twenty years ago, between airline flights,
I watched people gambling at slot machines
in the airport.
To see folks standing hypnotically tossing
money into a bottomless machine, money
they had worked hard for...well...it was
Last week, a family friend wanted company
when they went to a Casino, so I reluctantly
tagged along, feeling out of place.
They bought $10 worth of "tickets" to
put into the machine.
We walked through mazes of brightly-
circus colored electronic slot machines,
searching for "the winner."
Folks unsmilingly pushed buttons, as
the flashing machines madly gobbled
up their money.
My friend must have thought I was
good luck and wanted me to "play."
I hesitantly sat down, and thought,
this is so out of my league, how can
I gamble and stay comfortable in my
I watched the spinning animations on
the machine and thought, "look at all
"Imagine, if every time a button was
pushed, it was a prayer could go out
into the world!"
We could hear folks yelling encouragingly
at their deaf machines.
Their addiction was paramount to the
Wanting to avoid falling into the same
addictive trap...I thought about sending
out a loving prayer, instead of a panicky
need to win thought every time I played.
This felt better with each push of the
computerized machine's button of false
Well we got hits and dings and bells and
whistles over and over.
The poor folks next to us got clunking
machines and they eventually left.
I sent prayers to my friend Atira,
and to her two cats that went missing,
(a coyote was seen in her neighborhood.)
I said prayers to all the mothers who
had lost children, and for folks in hospitals.
I sent love out to the world wrapped in
Angel Scribe newsletters as a prayer.
Every minute meant a new prayer
was winging its way around the world.
Then I sent a prayer to Atira's mother
for lovingly taking in 52 foster children,
then to Atira's father for loving her mother
enough and supporting her to take care
of children who needed love.
On and on the prayers went.
When I got bored, actually when I ran out
of things to pray for... we left...basically
with our money intact.
Because our machine was a penny machine,
we had over an hour of "play" time on $10,
then I glanced at the machine's credit points
and they read 1,111. ($11.11)
I knew the moment was worthy of a photo,
but had no camera handy.
Little did we know how soon our loving
prayers would be Divinely acknowledged!
That night at 1:11 am the phone woke
It was Atira. She was ecstatic!
Even though Atira has the gift to see and
hear folks on the other side, it is like a
dentist who can't work on themselves.
It is hard for Atira to tune into her parents,
and they have both been gone for over
Atira had being lying in bed, praying for
events in her life and asking for direction...
AND...then...her father came in a dream...
more a vision than a dream.
(In the thirty years since his passing, he
has only appeared one other time!)
The experience was too clear for a dream
... she saw accurate details.
He wore a blue shirt and referred to the
contents of her prayers with, "Everything
will be all right."
This gave Atira a renewed confidence and
direction to carry on her work.
Atira has the enviable gift of hearing
Angels and one spoke to her and said,
"The reason your father came through
is because of the power of prayer."
"Prayers were sent out, by Mary Ellen,
with no motive other than love attached
and it gave your father the energy to
come to you."

Dear Angel Scribe!
Dear Angel Scribe,
I checked your website on triple numbers,
numerous times the last several weeks.
I work in broadcasting, and had begun to
notice some weeks ago, as my life has gone
into tremendous loss and turmoil, that I seem
to frequently turn to look at the countdown
clocks on the songs on our broadcast computer
exactly as they reach 1:11.
This morning, I turned to the clock that counts
up instead of down, which I hardly ever do,
and it read 1:11.
I have been in a period of tremendous grief,
loss and mourning.
I had thought that the 1:11 sightings were over
for now, having not had the experience for a
week or so, but today, it's back.
I've already had four experiences with it
I've been very ill this week with an infection
from a cat bite.
Today , I stopped by Safeway for a replenishment
of my Excedrin PM.
The total? $11.11
I don't know what it means.
I only hope I have some divine help, because
I could certainly use it about now!

Dear Angel Scribe,
My experience with triple numbers started
when I awoke in the early morning and
looked at the clock.
It was 4:44.
This continued to happen for weeks.
Then, I began to see the numbers
I am not sure of the significance of the
numbers, however, I am now learning
that they show up when I am having
doubt in my life and somehow they
encourage me to see beyond that
I believe that the more I see them, the
closer I am to my spiritual destination.

Dear Angel Scribe,
I found you again!
