Happy Valentine’s Day from Your Angels


 

Happy Valentine’s Day my friends,

Whether you are in a relationship or not, my angels let me know that everyday needs to be Valentine’s Day. That no one needs to feel excluded. Because love does show up in our lives, in so many different ways. The most important one is of course is self-love. To appreciate who we are, and to know that who we are is unique in how we show up to ourselves and to others… A few years ago I had written an article for my e-zine, Off the Cuff E-zine,  on how we speak using the word heart.. I found over 100 different ways we could use the word HEART. Both endearing ways, and ways that may make us sad. It’s a multi-purpose word so to speak. For me. personally, at least in being aware of how we can use the word in a phrase, or short sentence such as “My heart is breaking” Or “He broke my heart” and then in a positive way,”He is a sweet heart” or “My heart is happy today”, shows the range of emotion, we can feel with this one word. I found the process to be quite amazing in finding the different ways Heart can be used. 

It is no secret that for me the symbol of the heart is very much a part of me. Even before I had become spiritual I had hearts all over my house. I was very much into the Folk Art Décor and so I had pictures, decorative boxes, pillows, you name it I had it … In thinking back to that, it was the precursor to my awakening, not totally understanding that at the time. I was newly married and loved the folk art décor. 

Anyways back to the angels. When I had written the article about Valentine’s Day and the understanding of how self-love is also very important… the angels did have a message for us. And so I thought I would share this with you again

Archangel Chamuel, and Archangel Raphael, shared with me a few words, to share with you, on this subject.

 First they said, to look at my list of words and phrases, I wrote using the word HEART.

They have some questions, they want us to ask yourself each day.

“What color does your heart feel to be on this day?

What heart song do you want to sing?

What words from your heart, can you think of that will help you to feel joy, peace?

What stories from heart can you share, with yourself or others?

Did you know that every day is Valentine’s Day?

You deserve, to feel love and to know love and to give love

It’s not something you attain, you are love.

And when you can see that deep in your heart, then you will know every day is Valentine’s Day.

Not just one day,

Valentine’s Day is every day!!!

Self-love is acceptance of who you are, no matter, who you think, you are.

Celebrate YOU and celebrate those you love everyday…

And as we sit on our heart cloud of love

Sincerely. We thank you all for who you are, deep in your heart and soul.

We share with each of you, a golden heart, to signify, the love each of your angels share with you each day….

Live your passion; embrace your creativity, understanding of living from the heart, helps you in creativity, relationships and all aspects your life.

Love from our hearts to your hearts,

Archangel Chamuel, and Archangel Raphael”        

Thank you to Archangel Chameul and Archangel Raphael for sharing with us, that we are loved always.  And that it begins with loving ourselves..  We all deserve to have love in our life, at all times and it begins with appreciating yourself and also what you have in your life at this time… 

Happy Valentine’s Day…

The Awakening


The Awakening

By Peg Jones

 

In recent days,

I have felt the energies of the universe to be so severe

Every fear and hope has come and passed through my being.

I have felt, all the pain that others feel

Their frustrations

My frustrations

And my hopes

I have been in a place of total discomfort that I can barely bear it.

I have heard from the angels and I have felt their love and expectations.

I have felt the pain of loss, because of the empathy I continually am a part of

Changes happen,

Beyond our understanding or control possibly,

It’s not a loss.

It is a change of place, within our universe,

The angels are with all who want to know them

They will speak to you through your heart and soul

As you listen to the words of the angels

Pay attention to what you see

What you hear

What you know

And what you feel

Paying attention to the synchronicities and the validation

In so many different ways

Know that these signs are to let you know of their love and closeness and accessibility to them

The angels help us to know of our God or source

His love for us and his concern.

With the help of the angels, ascended masters, guides, loved ones and elemental s and animal totems,

All in the universe, help us to see how we are all one and how love is all that we need to be in this life.

To go with the flow of all that is, to not be concerned and to only respond in love

Try smiling, each day, to all you see

To all you know

Be pleasant in word and deed

Ask your higher self to show you the way of the path of your life…

Know that the time line is not yours

It is the timeline of the heavens and all those that are there

Who is this you may ask?

It is the angels, spirit guides, totems, elementals, other dimensions, and loved ones too

We are human so we see only as a human may see

Until the illusion is noticed and we awaken… almost as from a deep sleep

We learn, we experience, and we grow to our biggest surprise,

We are human, we are spiritual

We go beyond our wildest dreams

And we see what we did not see before

And we think,

How could this be?

It’s not our fault…   we know what we know

Because we have remembered……who we are….

We learn too

And we see from a higher place

And we see the duality of spirit vs humanness

And we see this to be true

And we see so far beyond

And we thank our higher self

And ask

How could this be so that we saw our reality in the way we did for so long..?

And we hear it doesn’t matter,

You see now……

We smile and we say thank you

And the light has gotten a little bit brighter ….

And we are feel a bit more awake.

The cheers of the Universe are felt, deep with our heart.

Because we have remembered,

Our spiritual mission

Our gifts from the universe

For we remember so clearly right now

And we feel with such validity,

That we truly, go on and on.

Till infinity…..

Angels message for March…..


Angels message for March…..

On this Sunday afternoon, it is a sunny warm day of 35 degrees.  It has been a while since we have seen the sun out and warmer, then 20 degrees, in north of Boston, MA.

The town is a bit more awake, and there are some, that are even walking around in shorts, on this sunny day.  There seems to be a bit of energy,  that is much lighter, than I have felt in a very long time.

Yesterday, when, I heard the storm was on its way, I asked for the storm to be gentle, with all who live in the area.  Mother Nature did listen, to some extent.  There was some snow, causing me to stop my errands, but it was soft and lasted a few hours.  It was less than 3 inches of snow, to add to the 5 feet of snow, we have from the previous 4 storms.

There is so much more snow, upon us,  more than ever before, from what I can remember, living in New England, the last half century.

During this winter, I have been thinking, what are we to be learning from all of this cold, wintry season?  Why has the Arctic, taken a southern path this winter, to the Northeast?  Is Mother Nature sharing her fury, to us all, for a reason?  Does the universe have a few messages for us?

I have heard many times, that Gaia, Mother Nature is quite angry with the inhabitants of earth, in the way her planet, has been treated, through, pollutions,  smog, extinction of animals, natural resources, our oceans, ponds, lakes, cutting down of trees and natural habitats, all through her planet.   And she, is now letting us know, who is in charge.

So hence, the weather patterns of the earth have been totally out of the ordinary, and we are now feeling this fury.

Mother Earth is also asking for our help, and to no longer pollute her land and seas.  She asks that we help with the healing of the earth and of the seas.  She wants us to help the healing of the earth, by concentrating on this goal.  She encourages us, to send healing, to areas that are damaged, and to work together, to help with the healing of our home planet.  She really wants us to help with this, through recycling, cleaning our waters, our air.  She wants us to be kind to ourselves, to each other, and to our animals, on land, and sea and air.

The other night, I had the pleasure of joining a group, called The Friends of the Grandmothers, which is a worldwide,  group of women and men also, who are helping to heal the earth, through healing  ,in groups around the world.  http://www.grandmothersspeak.com/

They have gatherings, in homes to talk about the healing of the earth, and how we can help with this as a group.   The Grandmothers, speak of net of light, which is an etheric netting or fishnet, around out earth…  A blanket of protection, and we can send this net of light, over ourselves, others, geographical areas in the world.  A type of healing, that helps us to connect, with positive intention.  The net will connect to everything that lives.  You can find more information about the net of life on the website, above this paragraph.

The past two days, after our phone meeting, I had the feeling that the angels had been speaking to me, one in particular.  The Archangel that came to mind was Archangel Ariel.  Archangel Ariel is the angel who helps with healing of land and seas, and the animals and all things living on the earth.  I have been feeling her presence, of late.  I felt she had been with us during the call, I had with the Grandmothers.  I felt she had a message, to share, too.

So I have asked her, share her message with us tonight.

Dear Children,

We ask you to be more mindful of the how to help the earth to heal, with all that its been through, for so many years.  We ask that, you each take care to do your part and to help the heal the earth that is so out of balance, at this time.  You are all feeling this change, in your weather patterns, and all that goes with that.  We want you to understand that healing at this time is taking place and we thank you all for the work you have been doing or beginning to take part in.  The work being done, as a group or individually,  is helping with the healing of earth.

And now the Grandmothers, have a message. “We the Sprit Grandmothers, of the universe, ask you to be mindful, as your angels have asked, of the earth.  To be proactive, when there are practices happening. on the earth plane, that is harmful.  We truly encourage to becoming active, in a way that suits you, to help earths healing.

Sending good intentions to all areas of the earth, through thought or healing distantly or physically.  Every positive thought or intention will help this.  We encourage, each to make smart decisions, in how you treat your beautiful planet.  Every bit of healing, and prevention,  will help your earth to heal. We have one more, thing we want to speak of and that is to speak to us The Grandmothers.  We speak with the angels and the entire Universe.  We have seen the progression of what is happening, and we truly want to help in assistance of helping earth to heal.  So when you speak to us, ask us how you can help, or send healing to different areas, of the world.  All is spirit are just as concerned for Earth as you are.  Look for the signs and nudges of how you can help in respective regions of the world.”

We thank you for your attention in this urgent situation.

Love

The  Grandmothers

 

So yes Mother Earth is a bit upset with us, and she is out of balance…  So many of us do so much in our own way to help in taking care of our planet.  What do you see as something, you would like to begin the work with?  Is there a local group, or national group to get involved with?  Can you begin a group to help with helping  with healing our planet. Maybe yes, maybe no, but maybe, there is something, that does interest you enough to get involved in.  Then just do it.  Every bit helps, and sometimes it begins, with you at home, or your neighborhood.

Just ask your angels, your guides, maybe even an animal totem, how you can take part in the care of earth.

Have a great month of March, and Spring will be here..  really soon..for us in the Northeast.

A Different Perspective of Valentine’s Day, from my heart to yours


By Peg Jones

Did you ever think of the different ways we use the word heart?  The ways that we use the word HEART, in positive and also in ways that can be negative.  Well I thought about doing just that today, and so I sat down, and I was able to come up with over 100 different ways, we use this word HEART.

I am finding that ”HEART”,  can really cover a range of emotions, feelings and other concepts, when you actually sit down and think about it. And why would I want to do such a thing

My article is due today…..And I wanted to write about Valentine’s Day for this months issue.

From what I can see, this list, I wrote, can be put into several categories.

  • Emotions, positive or negative
  • Feelings
  • Essence of someone.
  • Referring to heart using medical terms
  • Using different modes of creativity, that speak of the heart
  • And phrases we use when using heart in our thinking or speaking..

It is truly an amazing word.  HEART, is one of those words that can be used in so many different ways, that can speak of our lives as a both a spiritual and human …

Our human heart is what keeps us going, if I speak in medical terms.

It is central for our existence, because if it stops, our earthly life as we know it can possibly end, if not able to be revived.

How about my heart stopped when he walked into the room..  My heart melted, as he came to ask me my name.  He had such a good heart.  I knew in my heart, our hearts were meant for each other.

Or

When I go to my heart place, and I check, how it is feeling at this time.

I know in my heart, that I feel joyful, creative, passionate, happy, and peaceful..

I have written a lot about being in the heart place.  It’s our true center, of all that we are..  The heart will help us to peel back the layers, of what, we know longer need.  It is our higher self, of all that we are.  The higher self, can be our angels, our guides, our Source of all, our intuition, our guidance system.  We don’t all have the same models of what is meant by the Heart or our heart place.

When my heart is blissful, I feel blissful, too.  When our heart is joyful, we can create from the heart.  Because it is pure, and authentic, and it’s coming from the purest part of ourselves.  When we create art, dance, write, essays, poetry, it comes from our knowing and being.  It is expressions of our authenticity.

There is ying and yang in all ways of living and our expression of how we choose to live.  We are human and we always have choices.

But we also, have baggage that we don’t totally realize we have, or may not completely understand… or want to understand. And sometimes, this baggage has a lot of little bags, and compartments, inside the larger bags that we may, or may not show to the world…  The layers cover our true essence of who we are…  The layers can cause illness, addictions, bitterness, anger, frustration, self loathing, judgments, or maybe, in activities, that are not in our best favor, that keep us from being in that place of peace and love and grace..

Today, I heard a TED Talk from Dr Lissa Rankin,  speaking of how so many of us, are  living according to how we think we need to live because of what or society tells us or what we were brought up to believe.  And that is fine, because that is how for hundreds of years, we thought we had to live.  She specifically spoke of our careers, and how we choose a job for reasons that may not truly be the right choice.  That we may come to a point, and say enough, no more..  Its killing me.. We become burnt out, tired, ill, sick, angry and a lot of other negative concepts..  In many ways, our world is having a big wakeup call…  To really, stop, review our careers, relationships, values, and how we just are not sure we want to stay on the merry-go-round of life as we think it is or we think it should be..  Our elders may or may not understand this thinking at all and maybe they do.

Dr Rankin, spoke that many of the diseases and issues, we deal with today, are due to not healing  from the different layers of what is blocking the pathway to our heart place.  These blockages,  need to not only be healed through medicine, but also spiritually, how we treat our body,  through the food we eat and  how we exercise our bodies and our minds..Our spiritual connections, She also mentioned how creativity in all the different ways we are able to creative can help this immensely..

Dr. Lissa Rankin,  speaks of  when she left her prestigious Dr position,  moved to the country with her family,  and began a life of helping others more holistically.. Prescribing, herbs, tinctures,  remedies, energy healing and all the different ways of how energy healing can help..She found that people were still hurting, emotionally, and all that came with that..  She said she felt that whether, it was holistic healing, or western medicine, the main thing that they needed to understand was that they needed to get to the root of the issues, and to heal from the inside and that starts in understanding  the root of is making us not balanced, body, mind and spirit. When one part of the triad is not balanced, others parts of the triad can have some issues…  Who does not have issues?  http://https://www.facebook.com/PegWolffJones/posts/101549974010717  91bit.ly/1JnIBXJ I was speaking of in this article.

  • Broken heart
  • Shattered heart
  • Heartless
  • No feeling there in my heart
  • Heartsick
  • Painful heart
  • Sad heart
  • Hungry heart
  • Heart of the matter

When we sing, are we ever sad, or angry?  We loved to sing when we were kids, and we would sing all the time.  For 34 years, I was a preschool teacher, and I sang every day with my students.  Many times we would sing the songs from the song book and we would make up our own words, for new songs of our own.  We would add new verses for songs we already knew.  Sometimes we would dance and sing, and sometimes we paint and sing.

  • Joyful heart
  • Blissful heart
  • Singing from the heart
  • Heart song
  • Singing heart
  • M y heart is singing
  • Musical heart
  • Creating from the heart
  • Talking from the heart
  • God bless your heart
  • Speaking and singing from the heart
  • Happy heart

And by now, you are thinking, and what does this all have to do with Valentine’s Day, the day where we celebrate our love and appreciation for our partners, our families, and our friends.

We see and hear how commercialized Valentine’s Day, and we rush to buy the cards, gifts, toys etc, do we  think to include ourselves, as to how we can celebrate how we care for ourselves? We see the candy heart boxes for our kids our partners, or the special cards to our people who are special in our lives, the restaurants that advertise special deals for you and that special person, the candy, the stuffed toys,  It’s a commercial day of mayhem and expectations, from the department store, jewelry store, card store, and restaurants.

Is it the mindless accessibility that we buy into the commercial traditions and pressure of the day?  It’s what we do, did we include to do something for ourselves for this day..

And so I asked the angels, what suggestions they had for including ourselves some love, in honoring positive self-love, for ourselves.  I mean we are busy human beings, with jobs, careers, kids, businesses, & family to care for.

Who are we to do such a thing, as to celebrate ourselves on this day or any day for that matter?

Archangel Chamuel, and Archangel Raphael, shared with me a few words, to share with you, on this subject.

First they said, to look at my list of words and phrases, I wrote using the word HEART.

They have some questions, they want us to ask yourself each day..

“What color does your heart feel to be on this day?

What heart song do you want to sing?

What words from your heart, can you think of that will help you to feel joy, peace?

What stories from heart can you share, with yourself or others?

Did you know that every day is Valentine’s Day..

You deserve, to feel love and to know love and to give love

It’s not something you attain, you are love..

And when you can see that deep in your heart, then you will know every day is Valentine’s Day.

Not just one day,

Valentine’s Day is every day!!!

Self love is acceptance of who you are, no matter, who you think, you are.

Celebrate YOU and celebrate those you love everyday…

And as we sit on our heart cloud of love (HEART GRAPHIC INSERTED BELOW_

From the bottom of our hearts.  We thank you all for who you are, deep in your heart and soul.

We share with each of you, a golden heart, to signify, the love each of your angels share with you each day….

Live your passion; embrace your creativity, understanding of living from the heart, helps yous in creativity, relationships and all aspects your life.

Love from our hearts to your hearts,

Archangel Chamuel, and Archangel Raphael”

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.”

Have you lost your JOY?


 

 

Have you lost your JOY?

By Peg Jones

We get busy with the day to day things,  our jobs, our children, whether they are kids or young adults,  our relationships an everything else in between,  We get caught up in the planning, and dealing with organizations, government regs., paying our bills and dealing with our health,  the doctors and everything else in between. We hear about the state of the world or of an incident to that are upsetting and then we see how it is all dragged out day to day on every media channel station that speaks about the state of our world.

I will stop there.  I lost my self and forgot I was writing about JOY.

So we forget about our joy, because we are so busy dealing with life… that maybe troublesome or time consuming, and also our daily routine.  Life can be crazy, funny, fun, disappointing, tiresome, overwhelming, and boring.  We forget about the joy in life, and we forget how to find that joy.  And so I asked the universe about joy, particularly some angels who love to talk about JOY…

Ok back to joy…  Summer time is good time to talk about JOY, well anytime, I suppose.  Do you sometime find that the times we say are going to be joyful; are the most stressful times too?  I guess its how you choose to deal with these joyful/ stressful times.  Like pre-wedding planning, and the holidays we have at the end of the year, and graduating from college or high School, or any of the other joyful times/ stressful times.

How can we keep these time a bit less stressful?

But that is not what I am particularly talking about.  Although it is something to mull over, possibly.

What I am talking about is just going through day to day life,  doing all what I wrote about above,  but forgetting about the joy,  as adults who are making transitions,  with family friends and our careers, needs, wants, and day to day worries that keep us from the joy that use to be so easy to feel.

In speaking with friends recently, I mentioned something about forgetting the joy and how we have forgotten that the joy is still there.  We just have to embrace it and to access it regularly.

I asked the angels about Joy, which by the way is one, their favorite things to speak about…They have given a few pointers, that I hear a lot, from them and others also.  So they have encouraged me to write about how we can access our joy a bit more quickly.  Of course they say that being appropriate when accessing the joy is a good idea to take into consideration.

These are some their ideas for us when wanting to invite joy into our lives again, when we have forgotten what it was… so here are some pointer they have shared.

  1. If life gets so very stressful for you, take that time for you to relax and to take total down time.
  2. When there are decisions to be made, be sure you have all the facts and then evaluate the pro’s and con’s of the decision
  3. Talk to the friends that make you laugh
  4. Do something different, that you would enjoy doing.
  5. Go outside, go to the beach, to a lake, or pond,  or go the mountains or on a hike,  embrace the beauty in your surroundings
  6. See a funny show or movie with friends or close relationship.
  7. Do fun activities with your kids, or grandkids
  8. Play board games with friends
  9. Sing by yourself or with friends and family.
  10. Giving your worries and stress to the Universe, the Angels too and know that they will help you to feel this joy again..
  11. Having a sense of humor helps too.

The list could be endless.  But taking the time in reading this article, and thinking about JOY, in our lives, is a positive thing to consider.  Especially if we forget that we truly deserve joy in our lives.  And you know you do deserve to have this joy for yourself, and for your loved ones, even when it seems to impossible to think of this.  Bringing the JOY in our lives and thinking of ways we can do this is something to consider.  We all deserve this joy, to help with the stress and frustrations of our life.

So in thinking about joy and how to bring more in, I bet we all can come up with some really creative ways, and I am sure you all have some great ideas, for letting the joy, continue in our life.

I keep hearing that life wasn’t’ suppose to be this difficult, that balance of body mind and spirit can certainly help too.  So get outside, enjoy the fresh air, and thank the angels, our higher power, friends, and family (those that bring us joy) for being a part of our life, and SMILE…..

Can you feel the JOY?

 

Sometimes, your joy is the source of your smile,

but sometimes your smile is the source of your joy.

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.
