ANGEL HARPS
Presenter: Carolyn Weislogel

In 1992, during a trip to Texas, Carolyn discovered Angel Harps and has been making them and shipping them all over the world ever since. During the creating process, she meditates and asks that a healing An-gel be assigned to each one. In 2003, Carolyn discovered from a doctor who owns the largest alternative clinic in Norway, that she was tuning the harps to the same vibration as the Great Pyramid of Giza. They have been used in many healings, as well as just to bring comfort and peace. Come and have a chance to experience them yourself.

Carolyn Weislogel has been working with the angels for 12 years. She started healing work when she was 19 years old. Doreen Virtue, acclaimed author and seminar leader, told Carolyn several years ago that there were many, many angels around her, and also that the angels were lined up waiting to be assigned to her harps. Carolyn's angel harps are all over the world-balancing, centering, uplifting, and healing people from all walks of life.
