Interview With Donna Terody
Do angels really exist? There
have been countless tales of their interactions with mankind for centuries.
Recently, Donna Terody gained national recognition by appearing on the
cover of People magazine. The feature described her encounters with
the angelic realm and how it has changed her life. Since her near death
encounter in 1992, Donna Terody has remained in constant touch with
angels. Their guidance inspired Donna to create her own company called
Angel Visions which is currently developing an animated television show
for children. Scott Catamas, Executive Producer of New Earth News interviewed
Donna Terody about her upcoming projects and inspirational views on
life. Her touching tale provides a very intimate look at a courageous
woman who has survived a number of personal tragedies to become an angelic
ray of hope for humanity.
Scott: Tell us about Angel visions?
Donna: Well, Angel Visions was an idea I had several
years ago to bring spirituality to children through a line of products
and merchandising. There are a number of things planned such as stories,
audio tapes, video tapes, a movie and films.
Scott: Please explain to our readers how you came
up with the idea for the rainbow angel and what it is all about?
Donna: The rainbow angel is a concept that came to
me after my near-death experience in 1992. Doctors pronounced me "clinically
dead" from kidney failure but actually I had gone up into the celestial
realm and connected with the angels. After returning to this dimension,
I felt it was time to make some big changes in my life so I started
to pray about what I was here to do. A man who was connected to Make
A Wish Foundation told me about all these children who were in a lot
of need. I thought this is where I should utilize my energy and felt
inspired to start writing children stories, even though I'd never written
Meanwhile, I went on with my painting career. One day, I was commissioned
to do an angel for a little girl who was about 4 years old. While I was
painting, she came over to me and said, "I have something so important
to tell you -- you better sit down for this. The angels want me to tell
you they can be any color at all. Just remember that." She described
to me an angel with rainbow colored wings. So this particular little character
appeared in front of me one day and he had these big, heart-shaped wings.
So, I combined the ideas -- my story, the vision, with what the child
had told me and formulated the rainbow angel -- which is in development
for a children's animation series.
Scott: What is the show about?
Donna: Well, the rainbow angel is on his first earth
assignment. So he is very childlike and he is learning about the earth
plane along with the children. So each episode deals with a different
child's personal dilemma. In order to solve their problems, he takes
them through his imaginary world to teach them different lessons. I
think a lot of children don't have a support system now -- both parents
work, some children are in abusive home situations, so this character
can actually become an imaginary friend. Even though its only a television
show, they can feel like he's always there for them.
Scott: What would you say to someone who feels like
they have been victimized in their life, or they haven't had divine
Actually, I have had a very tragic life. My son just died June 1st while
I was giving birth to him. Now how do you think I feel? I have these
angels, but God took my son. We all have things that happen to us, but
it's not about constantly staying in that victim mode. It's about what
are you going to do to make a change to make the world better? I think
if you focus on that -- you don't have to focus on yourself. I still
had to move forward because I have work to do. We all have work and
each person helps in their own individual way, no matter how small it
is. When I go to the grocery store, I bless the guy behind the counter
because I think, thank God he is there so I can buy my groceries.
is blessed in what they're doing. No one is better than another person.
Just because I was on the cover of People magazine doesn't mean anything.
Everyone has their own mission and their life is important -- no matter
what they do. I think when people look at things from that perspective
they can get out of a of victim mentality.
Scott: Have you through your angelic contact had visions
of the future and if so, what are they?
Donna: The biggest thing I can tell people is to have
more faith in your spirituality and in God because that transcends whatever
will happen on this planet - good or bad. You know, the Earth has it's
own living cycles and we can't totally be in control of God's will. The
best advice I can give to people is to connect to spirit, whatever that
means to that individual, so your faith can sustain you -- even if something
