A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST
Rewind to June 2016
Lucinda experienced a medical-related miracle in the spring of 2016 where archangel Rafael appeared to her revealing the way the light moved through.
After receiving this blessing, she spoke aloud in prayer that she vowed to paint what she saw in her angelic vision and to make this presence known in the world and the little ways she was able. The double caduceus of the medical staff was actually a spiraling vortex of two polarities that made an effulgent staff of light. She painted this image first, and then began praying with the other archangels and bringing forth these visions in paintings.
Lucinda began a practice of paintings these Angels of Light and saying prayers throughout to infuse the very paintings with the angelic energies she experienced in these prayers.
The signature angel of One Million Angels came to the artist, Lucinda Rae, the day after the devastating mudslides in Santa Barbara county where she lives. The community went into shock after the harrowing Thomas fire had burned the surrounding areas for several days and had threatened to burn more fully into the city of Montecito and Santa Barbara.
One day, like it seemed like it would never happen, the winds shifted, the fires moved to the back country and became contained, and the thick brown skies that rained ash became blue and clear again like iconic beautiful Santa Barbara.
But then barely a breath of air between the fires and peace of mind, there was a downpour of an inconceivable 5+ inches of rain in a very short period of time fell on the burn areas, the massive mudslide was created. Whole homes were taken out and neighborhoods completely rearranged, and part of the 101 freeway became a muddy river. 20 lives were lost and the whole community had to evacuate while bodies were being found.
Lucinda and members of her prayer team had agreed they had never in their lives prayed so fervently and tirelessly between the fire and then the mudslides.
In prayer and meditation the day after the mudslides hit, Lucinda received a vision of Archangel Metatron standing tall and mighty over the area of Santa Barbara and Montecito.
She was inspired to paint it immediately.
This painting also kicked off the first of a self-created “10 Expressions of the Angels” where she shared an angel painting one per day on Facebook and Instagram to put her focus on something positive.
The first angel she painted was the vision she had and named it Angel Over Montecito. The same day, she noticed a Facebook friend, Eric Greenspan, pushing a grassroots movement to raise money for the victims in the community. Lucinda wanted to donate, but wasn’t in a financial means to give, so she offered to sell her “Angel Over Montecito” as prints and would donate half of proceeds to his fundraiser.
The next day, the Montecito Strong/Montecito Mud Angels website was created and my angel art became the header for it. The prints started making their way around town and became an iconic vision of healing and hope for the community members who were still getting the mud off their hearts and homes, and for those that passed and all who were affected in the many ways.
The following week, another friend invited Lucinda to open a day of healing in Santa Barbara in the coming week and asked if she would sell her angel art there, too.
She asked for these as cards with a prayer on the back. And shortly after, Lucinda’s One Million Angel idea blossomed into something that could be shared in a larger way with others.
Hence this website and movement was created and shared for the world.
The following story is a small part of how Lucinda began devoting time and energy to painting and sharing the angels. Lucinda has held her vision to teach about the angels and share at least a million angel prints and/or originals of her art in homes and businesses around the world to bring more peace, protection, grace, and miracles through the power of light-filled art.
Currently she still works as a brand and website designer-developer and hopes to devote more time into making light-filled art to inspired on a larger scale.
