sathya-saiSai Baba Enters

“Sai Baba has come to sit in for your reading,” said Olgaa with a surprised smile. “This is the first time this has happened in one of my sessions. Oh, now He wants me to offer you a glass of water.”


My eyes flew open and I gasped audibly, for at that exact moment I was overcome by a thirst so great that it felt like I had been walking for miles across an arid desert and had just fallen onto my knees exhausted and dehydrated and very close to death.


My husband and I had gone to Olgaa Fienco for an angel channelling session. Richard, a programmer, was between job contracts and was seeking a new position. He called a former work colleague to confirm his role as a referee and during their brief telephone conversation, Olgaa’s name came up and by the end of that short exchange he had booked an appointment for us to see her. Olgaa, the partner of Richard’s work colleague, channelled angels and did intuitive readings. I had not met Olgaa or her partner before. I went along with my husband on a trickle of curiosity. For Richard to have booked a session of this type was out of character.


A few days later, I took a deep breath and stepped through Olgaa’s front door. After the initial introductions, appropriate small talk and the offering of refreshments which we politely declined, Olgaa ushered us into her lounge where she did her channelling. The first thing that met my eyes was a photograph of Sai Baba on her mantelpiece.  Next to Baba were images of Jesus and other angels.


I knew then somewhere deep within that I was meant to be there. I had prayed to Sai Baba for years and my most fervent prayer to Him was to make the marriage between my husband and me a happy one. I prayed desperately for better communication between us and I prayed to be a good mother to my two sons and a caring daughter to my mother. But somehow it felt that the more I prayed for a happy marriage, the more I was challenged. Many bad tempered conversations with Him followed. Frankly, I felt that as God and the universal teacher He was failing hopelessly. To say that the relationship between my partner and me was strained would be a euphemism. Furthermore, most of the conversations with my mother, who lived with me, ended up in fits of fury and rants and rages. I felt like a ship lost at sea with its hull being bashed against a powerful iceberg that would not budge.


After I had the drink of water that Olgaa brought to me, we settled into the session once again. My mind was reeling, I was in awe and my scepticism of the authenticity of angel channellers was receding. This time Olgaa was a channel for Sai Baba and Baba had one message for me.


            It was: “Read those books.”


           “What books are these?” I asked.


Baba then showed Olgaa three books and told her that I had them already. He even showed her where they were in my house! Olgaa described them to me and this was how I was led to, A Course in Miracles, a book on Positive Thoughts and a book on Sai Teachings.


I asked Baba for some guidance for my husband and me and according to Olgaa, He held a yellow birthday cake in His hand, smiled mischievously and then left.


At the end of the session, Olgaa gave me a recording of all that she channelled.


The hunger of the mind can be appeased by the acquisition of knowledge.
