8 Ways of How to make the Holiday Season Stress-free


8 Ways of How to make the Holiday Season Stress free

By Peg Jones

It’s the week before Thanksgiving and we are in a panic because, we have to cook three apple pies and 3 vegetable dishes, cook two turkeys, get 20lbs of mashed potatoes ready for dinner at 3 pm, with 20 people coming to the house, and five will be staying with for three days.  And to add to all of this, to the every burning fire, you have to work till 4 on the day before Thanksgiving.

That was last week’s problem……..

The Thanksgiving Holiday is finished.

And as you looked at your calendar, the Monday morning after the just passed holiday weekend, you see that you have less than 4 weeks to plan and decide what the Christmas or Hanukkah  or other traditions, of the season,  plans and events will be the next 3- 4 weeks for this  very busy season.

You see the craziness of all that is supposedly expected on social and traditional levels.  The expectations of your children, young and old, friends and relatives, and finding the time to do the shopping, the baking and the going to the concerts, and all the activities that the children are involved in, at school, and church, or temple, and the adult parties that can be a bit cumbersome, and expensive.

It can get quite crazy, wild.  But does it really have to be this way..  ?

Sometimes making the season simple can be the easiest way for coping with the incredible amount of marketing, and all of its expectations.  Making it simple, fun, and creative is what I am feeling.  I need to suggest for having the holiday to be something you and all in your life to enjoy the holiday season.

Tradition is a big part of the holiday season, and passing down the traditions of food, social occasions and of adults and children can be hard to keep up.

Of course this is not the way for all of us but those with children, married or single,  and wanting to uphold the traditions you choose to share with them, can be rather crazy. Or if you have to cook for  a party or lots of people during the day of the holiday, having company during this time,  can be a challenging task too.

I asked Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael, for some ideas on some main points to consider for this holiday season, to possibly make the season go a bit smoother with less stress…..Of course we have the weather to consider too, because inclement weather, can certainly change the plans for our holiday season.

The following are some points to ponder.

  • Make lists, of all you need to do. Take out your calendar, put in the kids social events and your events too, with or without your partner, and with friends..  The office parties, the neighborhood gatherings.  Then plan out shopping lists, for food and home decorations, in and outdoor..  And delegate, delegate.
  • Delegate tasks for home, tasks and include everyone that can help… Taking out the decorations and decorating can be a family activity over a weekend, and the same with cooking…  Preparing for the holiday food, can be delegated too,  to older children, who can cook or bake, or send them to the store for things you may need for the holiday… Also making homemade decorations for whatever holiday is being celebrated in the home is a good way to include all in helping the holiday be fun..
  • Planning a budget so that expenses don’t go to out of control is very important. Sticking to the plan is always a challenge, especially for those that have a kind heart, and want to make everyone happy….
  • Making your own holiday cards for those special in your life, can be done for those with older children. Making ornaments are also a fun thing to explore and research…  They look great on the tree or in a window, and make great gifts too.
  • Ten people are coming to your house on the day of the holiday, and you work or just very busy.. You can ask each person to bring a dish, or dessert for the meal and you cook the turkey, and a dessert or two,   Asking others to help is a good way to keep the amount of work down, and can help to keep all calm..  Also make some of the food ahead of time, such as dessert, and some vegetables or casseroles.  And ask for help too.
  • As for the gifts to be purchased, many buy all through the year, or buy gifts as they travel too.. OR you can make some gifts and start early to begin the projects, or to give to a charity of your choice.  There online shopping too and this can take time away from the shopping centers.  Make it simple, make it fun..
  • I remember days of watching relatives, and myself included of wrapping the day before Christmas, mountains of gifts, sitting in the bedroom away from the family activities all day.. Try wrapping as your purchase the items, or use bags, as this saves time for the laborious task of wrapping the gifts.  As others to help too..
  • How about the card list in sending cards to friend and relatives, and business associates… Can the list be cut down a bit this year? Do you have to really send cards to those you will be seeing on the holiday or in town?

The holidays are a time of community, and so many of us have this opportunity of being with those we love and cherish.  There are many that do not have this and the angels ask us to remember this, and to be kind to those who are with family or who are celebrating alone, for so many reasons, that I don’t need to write about.

I think keeping these people in mind. In giving them a call, or sending a card, saying hello, helping out at a charity or soup kitchen, or just lighting a candle and asking our higher power, to be with them, and to keep them safe for this time, if they do happen to be completely alone..

If appropriate you could ask them to a meal on the day of the holiday or before or after the holiday, just to let them know you are thinking of them.

We also have to respect that some choose to be alone too, and that is ok too.

I believe I have pretty much covered the main things to consider during the holiday coming up.

As light workers, this can be a season of great challenge for the people we work with and on a personal basis..  We need to be sure that we are grounded and protected safely so that we can do the work we share with others, and for ourselves and family, so that we too are able to enjoy the holiday time, if celebrated.  Or it’s just a time personal spiritual celebration, of our source..  Having our own traditions and celebrations are to be celebrated too and respecting all ways of others celebrating this season too…

2014 is leaving us  and 2015 is quickly coming towards us….

I just want to say that the next month is a time of joy and peace for all and to know, that whatever difficulties maybe come about this time,   your angels are with you always  Especially, when you ask them for assistance… Asking them for help and trusting they are there for you, will help you to see how much the angels do want to help you today and always..

Having positive intent in all that you do,

Will keep you, from feeling a always so blue.

Helping your fellow man, in some special way,

Will help them carry on, throughout their day.

Going the extra mile and helping with a smile,

Will help you to share, and show you care.

If life gets tough and it’s hard to cope,

Know the angels are with you

we will guide you on your slippery slope.

When asking your angels for guidance, and telling them your woes,

 Know we are listening and offering you a rose.

The rose signifies love and the strength that you possess,

Listen closely to our whispers and know you are very blessed.”

Random moments of Inspiration are always present in our lives


Random moments of Inspiration are always present in our lives

I have been finding, that when I am writing with the angels is quite interesting, when you think of it, but it can be very harrowing, too. I say that because I usually have no clue what I am going to be writing, until the fingers hit the keyboard.  It’s all about trust. Trusting what you are hearing deep in your heart. When you are trusting deep in your heart, you are hearing your higher self speak.  This is your true self or your higher self, speaking to you . Your true self is the personality above the everyday masks we wear in our everyday lives. That is understandable because none of us what to be ridiculed or harmed in any way.  So we put on our public mask and live in a way that is not truly who we are. It’s who we want to show to others in a way that is safe. Its our spiritual self or our higher self.

Our higher self lives in our heart.  In our heart, there is only love peace and serenity. It is where we meet our angels and  our guides, and where our higher power is.

How can I get to this heart place when have a need to just be quiet and mindful?  I just imagine my angels and higher power, Source is present with me.  I feel their love and know I am there. Sometimes I listen to a visual meditation and bring myself to a place where I am relaxed and where I am completely calm. This helps me get to the heart place of where God and my Angels are.

I feel maybe sometimes the hustle and bustles or our everyday lives are so packed full of activity that we don’t make time for ourselves to really hear what our higher self has to say, on any particular day.  Maybe you do not want to hear what will be said, because it may be negative or demeaning.  If this is what you are hearing then God or the Angels are not speaking to you.  It is probably your ego speaking, thinking that it has to protect you for some reason.

Meditation in getting to this place helps a lot, even if its  a few minutes a day, or just listening to relaxing music.

Have you ever had a thought that was inspirational to you, but you didn’t know how the thought arrived on your mind?  Two days later you hear a friend speak of this to you and then that evening, you hear something on the radio about it…  You find the idea to be refreshing, fun, and really possible for this idea to happen.  You find that you encountering the right people and before you know it the vision you had in your mind has been manifested.  You can be sure that the angels had helped you on your way with this idea.  They helped you to find the right people and to be at the right place at the right time.  It’s all about the synchronicity of how this divine validation comes to us.

Sometimes it is a feeling or it is a knowing or is something that you see or hear that helps you to form your vision.  The angels play a big part helping  us with inspiration or Divine Guidance , and helping us to  manifesting our hopes, dreams and   experiences..  They are with us since infancy and they never leave us.  It is up to us to acknowledge their presence in our lives.  We hear about the angels more now than ever before.  It because they know we humans are beginning to wake and see how the  angels, can truly help us,  on a daily basis.

Inspiration, “In Spirit” is something we all possess and when we are aware of this we can watch our inspiration grow with love, peace and compassion. We see how the healing in our life is taking place and we can nurture ourselves with love peace and compassion. We all deserve to feel at peace and to live the dreams we have been inspired by.  Our life is a path of wisdom and through our different experiences; we can see the growth that has occurred in our life.  This is something we all go through and each time we learn something that is powerful and enlightening.  Our journey is our own and we all experience different paths.  Yet our goal is the same.

What are the things that inspire you the most?  Do you make use of your inspirational thoughts?  How do you go about doing this creativity and its different ways that this creativity even exists,  show us how our creativity is truly Divinely Inspired. What are the different ways that you may use this inspired creativity?  What are you favorite ways to use create?  There are so many different ways to work in a creative way.  Are you able to use your inspiration in your everyday job or with others?  We all have the capacity for inspiration/creativity.  Let your dreams be your realities and your truth of who you are.  Enjoy the journey of your life and always know the possibilities are endless.

What will you create today?

 “Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.”  Mary Lou Cook

Spiritual Journal


Have you ever thought of starting a spiritual journal?

From the time, I received my first diary as a young girl till I was in my 20’s; I had always done some kind of journaling.  In my 20’s, I kept a journal/ diary, about the ups and downs my life was taking at the time.  I had at least two or three going at the same time.  I enjoyed doing this writing very much, until I found my house mates, my privacy had been violated, as I had found out the journal had been looked at without permission.  In thinking about this time in my life, I was going through some real spiritual dilemmas.  During this time, I was living on my own and could barely make ends meet.  In my journal, I wrote about some of the milestones, I had experienced and also my dreams and hopes, to God many a time.

In many ways, I had lost the connection to my spirituality, because of some setbacks; I had gone through, just before I had gotten married. This period of disconnect from spirit happened for over 15 yrs following, the date of our marriage.

I made many attempts to do some writing in my journal, but to be honest; I had no time to write in my journal.  During this time, I had been a teacher of young children and I didn’t have the time, or patience, to do any writing of a spiritual nature.  In looking back, during that time, my writing consisted of writing lesson plans, IEP’S, daily anecdotal reports, yearly reports.  I had no time or particular interest of doing extra writing of any sort.

And then there was a time in life when I began a new spiritual journey of self healing, and feeling the need to express myself more.  I began to take some creative writing, online classes.  I found this had helped me to reach my heart and soul and see the spiritual connection that I doubted was genuinely there.  I was writing more creatively and writing poetry, essays, and having a column on a few spiritual sites.

My creative writing was mainly poetry and essays for publication and also began writing some meditations.  I found, I was doing a lot of writing of poetry about the angels, as I was becoming more involved in doing angel readings and angel meditation healings.    Angel were becoming very important to me and found that a lot of this writing was channeled writing, which I had know Idea I was doing, until someone said to me, that some of what I was writing was channeled.

About 3 years ago, a friend of mine asked me to share a daily message on her website. I also shared them on social media and kept them in a blog.  About 2 months later, I felt I was being asked to develop journal questions for the messages that were shared, each day.  As I was doing this each day, I realized that even though the messages were personal on some level, they were messages to help everyone to notice how the angels are truly in your life.  I also realized that the journal exercises had nothing to do with automatic writing.  The journal exercises were to help you start to notice the signs the angels were there for you.  Helping you to be in your heart place, more consistently, healing, and knowing you are being supported by the universe.

In thinking about a spiritual journal, and how you would use the journal I had several ideas and insights.

  • It can be the same as any other journal, but its thinking in a different space.
  • The spiritual journal can help others to notice their angels, or guides.
  • It could be thanking the universe for the day you experienced or for something more specific.
  • Speaking from your heart what is on your mind for that day.
  • You would write message, you feel you might be sensing, or it could be an experience in working with one specific angel over a period of times and telling them what is on your mind or asking for help.
  • Writing a prayer of thanks of concern of gratitude.  What is in your heart at the time?
  • It is a place where you can contain and see the spiritual growth taking place in your own life.
  • Asking questions and writing the answers, to and from God, angels, guides
  • You could put a meditation, poem, prayer that you had created.  The possibilities are limitless.

The angels are telling me that we get so caught up in our lives that we truly forget who we are.  When you keep a spiritual journal, it’s a time where you and reflect and have time for you.

In July of 2013, my book, Living in the Heart Place with Your Angels: Daily Angelical Whispers Throughout the Year, is a book of messages from the angels, for each day of the year.  Each message has a daily journal message, for you to think about and write your thoughts on the message and journal exercise.  It is a way to connect with your angels and also to help with self empowerment, and lots of messages of self healing, living in the heart place, forgiveness and some exercises that encourage creativity in your writing too.

Spiritual journaling with the angels is all about transformation of what is real and true for you as you travel on your spiritual path.  I think in many ways, it can help you to reconnect with yourself, and with the universe, and especially our Source, who ever that may for you.  The balance of body, mind, and spirit is so important for us to strive to make happen for ourselves, and self -expression in these concepts is also important for our growth on our life path, and enjoying and see the positive milestone, we each can make every day.

A message to the Light workers, from Archangel Michael


Archangel Michael's Feastday
Archangel Michael’s Feastday

Today, September 29th, is the feast of Archangel Michael. He is one of my favorite Archangels and he one of the Archangels, I work very closely with. He is the one I always ask to accompany me on a trip in the car, along with Archangels Gabriel, AA Raphael and Archangel Ariel. I always make sure AA Michael is in the in front passenger seat next me, as I am driving to my destination. Sometimes they speak to me and sometimes they don’t speak to me but I know they are with mei in the car. It is a feeling of safety and protection when they all accompany me. I look for the synchronicity in the time I spend driving and the messages I will receive in all that I see on my journey. Its really quite amazing what I see . Tonight I was doing some research on the feast day and found out it was also Archangel Gabriel’s and Archangel Raphael’s feast day too.. Michelmas is what the feast day is called. The feast day is acknowledged in most Christian religions on this date. Other religions acknowledge Michael on other dates during the fall.
Archangel Michael is known is all the major religions: Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Greek and Russian Orthodox religions too. He is celebrated on this date because of his fight with standing up to Lucifer in a war in heaven. There are many versions to what the feast of Michaelmas was and still is.
In the past few years I have noted the day in offering an Archangel Michael meditation circle or messages from Archangel Michael.
So tonight I have asked Archangel Michael, what his message is to us tonight on the state of what is happening in our world today and the next few days.
So this is what he has shared with me tonight:
Children,
I am here tonight and assuring you that your safety is of apparent concern to all of us, in all realms of heaven and the universe. We ask you to be at peace and know we are here for your protection too. The negative forces that may on the earth plane is something we are taking care of and that we are helping to keep all to stay safe at all times. The negative forces will not win for the negative is not as big as they think they are. The light will always prevail in all areas of the world …..even when it seems not to be there.. Yes there is suffering but the light is beginning to shine on these places too… So please believe that we are here helping this to truly be and more noticeable as time goes on. So many see the light .. You see the light, the people reading, or hearing this message, see the light. Share this light with all you know and meet. Peace and love start in the home and with yourselves.. See the light that you are and all that is precious to you, right in this moment in time. The people you work with, the people you play with, the people who are closest to you. And of course yourself too. I am Michael and you are all precious to me . The light, shining tonight is bright and the beams of light that you send out in the different points of where you are situated, right at this moment, shine brightly to all. And they will feel this light as you now feel this light, tonight. I hear the pleas of all who ask for guidance and protection. The Source of all does too. No matter the back ground or belief or no belief I hear you and I say to you in this very moment to just ask for the help you need, and I will be there for you. Then feel this peace shown to you and know that I am here with you ….Also look for the synchronicity in your lives and know that I am helping you to know of my presence and of the other angels who can help you too. We are of love and you are too and know that the love has always been there. And soon it will be there for all to truly feel all that this love entails. And now I say to you, go in love and service to all you know… Smile to all you see and when they smile back you will know they see your light as bright as the sun.. I am Michael and thank you for the light that shines bright, when I see your in all your different locations on the earth plane..

Thank you AA Michael for this message today and I wish you a happy feast day and thank you for all you have done for all reading this today.
Michael is our Angel of protection of safety and protection and justice. His name means “like God”. He is the highest and closest Archangel to God.
What stories do you have in asking AA Michael for guidance or help? I would love to hear your experiences, if you have any to share. Be safe this next month and know that AA Michael is always close by.. You just have to ask him for help…
I have just had a book published a few months ago. It is a book of angel messages for the day and an journal exercise too. I would like to share today’s message with all of you .
September 28
What message do you have for us today?
Focus on what is right for you at this time. Be an individual in this matter and do what is good for you. Today so many people only focus on the accepted way to approach a situation. It is okay to hear a different drummer. It seems to us, your angels, that we can help you with this. It’s time to be who you really are, not just who you think you are. Ask us for help with this. By focusing on the positive you will always succeed.

Journal exercise:
Are you having difficulty deciding on the right way to solve a particular issue? Do you want to walk on the path that everyone perceives as being the right way to solve it or do you have your own opinion which is different from what others may think? Think about it and journal about it.

I am on Amazon and the book is in paperback and also Kindle version too. Here is the link to the author page and when you click on the paperback icon it will bring you to the book page and you will see the reviews written too…..The name of my book is,
Living in the Heart Place With Your Angels: Daily Angelical Whispers Throughout The Year.

A message from our angels


This post says it all to me in a nutshell. When we ask the angels for help, it is given to us, even if we feel that nothing is happening in our lives. We sometimes think that because a wish or a goal, we may have for ourselves or others and nothing is happening that the angels are not there for us. They are teaching us patience at all times, and when we trust their guidance miracles can happen. The vision or goal we have for ourselves may not be what we thought it would be or it will be exactly what we thought it would be. It is always for our highest good. They love to teach us lessons along the way too. And they will let us fail and they will help us to succeed at all the same time.. When we fail it maybe because we need this lesson to progress or change our path a bit in order for something better to come along. The angels teach us to be open to change in our lives, and to help us with forgiveness. They want us to take the lead in the positive moves for our lives and they will be behind us watching our back and keeping us safe…So look for the signs in all that life brings to you. Trust that when nothing is happening or occurring as fast as you think it should happen that there is a reason The angels also say that patience helps with the process of day-to-day living and planning for our life’s journey. The angels want to us to enjoy our life’s journey and to accept the failures and accomplishments.. Both are important for us to see and grow from..545218_496333580444820_2008906206_n

Angelical Whispers, angel message for December 2012

I cannot believe it will be December of 2012 very soon. This year has gone by really fast. There have been a lot of interesting things happening this past year, for everyone living on the earth plane.  We have had times of great happiness and times that have brought much sadness or times being feeling worried.  We have explored times of great inspiration and times of feeling sad or angry.  When I ask the angels about this last year, this is what they say to me, about this.

Asking Archangel Raphael for healing and Archangel Michael for protection will help to heal the stress that you may be feeling at this time. Also giving your worries to the Universe is a way that we can surrender our will and letting the universe help you more.  As a human I know when I put my demands on the universe for things to happen on my time schedule, that is when I meet with trouble.  I am dealing with my time clock and it is expected to happen at the time I want it to happen.   Now there is nothing wrong with our ego, as it is protecting us but sometimes it goes about protecting us in a roundabout way.  We seem to talk big out of our head and forget that the heart place is where we truly get heard from the universe.  The heart place is where your angels are and where you have your guides too, It is where you feel love not only for yourself but for everyone around you.. Its where you take notice of another’s pain or joy, happiness and gladness.  You make room for others in your heart.  And you make room for the most important person in your life and that is you.   You have no judgment in your heart and jealousy doesn’t exist there either.  The heart place is your direct connection to all in the universe.   There you will learn how the universe can help you.   You learn to let the universe show you the way on your path.

This year has shown me, that the universe is truly with us, even in time of illness and other issues that can occur.  Doing the footwork, and working with the universe is so crucial in helping us to find our heart place.  Our angels are around us and they respect us and will not interfere into our lives unless we ask them for help.  They work swiftly and not always how we expected a situation to be solved.  We can be given situations that are difficult only to learn that we have come out of the situation in a most positive manner.  I have found these situations help us to appreciate all that we have in our life and all who we have as family and friends in our life.  The angels have helped me to appreciate the big things and the little things in our lives.  The angels love us so much, and when we know this to be true, we start to see the many ways that they do care.  They remind us again to be aware of the synchronicities in our lives.  Each occurrence has a special meaning.  Living in our heart place we will begin to understand love and peace in our heart.  We will see the true meaning of life and the true meaning of love for ourselves and for others too.  Angel Blessings to all of you.  I wish all of you a very Happy Holiday and a wonderful year in 2013.
