Thank you, Dr. Dyer

A month before Dr. Wayne Dyer had passed, he was in a dream I had one evening.  In the dream we were having a conversation, and from what I can recall, it was as if he was giving me advice, about my work. He was speaking and also sharing advice, about not giving up, at any time, no matter how difficult it can be at times.    I also recall the conversation, was very pleasant. One that two colleagues would be speaking of their experiences of their work over the years. The final feeling was that I could speak to him at any time, if I needed advice.

And I woke up that morning, saying why would he visit me in a dream? I mean how that could have even happened in the first place.  Some friends said it was as if your souls knew each other, and you were speaking Soul to Soul.  I thought but surely why his soul would want to speak to my soul?

Sunday, August 30th, was a calm day. My husband and I drove up to Kittery, Maine, to the Rockport Shoe outlet store.  They had a fantastic sale and he was able to get a great pair of shoes, at a fantastic bargain.  We stopped at a few more stores, along the road, and then decided to take the back roads home.  The sun began to set, and I noticed the interesting way, the sun rays were shining their light through the clouds.   I wanted to take some pictures, but we were going too fast, to get a good picture.   So I gave up and eventually we traveled back to the highway. I noticed the sky again, and how the light was shining through.  I took some pictures and thought they were pretty cool. One looked like a guy wearing a hat and being a bit silly, I thought to myself. “Oh maybe it’s God, wearing a hat today.”

Within 20 minutes, we arrived to our home.  I was on a call with some friends, and as we were speaking, I was checking out Facebook.  I saw a post, on my feed page, which said Dr Wayne Dyer had passed on Saturday Night.  I saw this and thought is this really true? The others on my call were able to confirm that he had passed. We were all very much in shock over this news.   We were all relaying stories of Dr Dyer for a few minutes, then we said our goodbyes, a few minutes later.  I had a feeling I needed to go back to the pictures, I had taken earlier, on my iPhone.    So I went back and checked out the pictures, I had taken earlier.  As I was looking at the pictures, I saw the man with a hat in the picture was Dr. Wayne Dyer!! Or maybe a likeness of to him, because of the hat and the way the eyes were and the shape of the head.  Then I received the message, in a very subtle way.

“I am always here, and I doing well”

“I am free.”

“I am free to help those I may not had been able to

with before.”

“I can work with many now at the any time.”

And then days later, I saw others were getting the same messages

“I am here and I will help you when you ask, you just have to ask for help or guidance.”

Here is the picture that I took hours, before I realized, Dr. Dyer had passed.

wayne Dyer 8.30.15

If you look almost mid line of where the trees and sky come together, with the light showing, you can the likeness of Dr. Wayne Dyer.  As the week progressed, I was able to see other spirits in the picture, and some symbols, a heart and a star, and also two angels above his hat in mid picture. I feel this was a true gift from Dr. Wayne Dyer, for me to share with the world. He is still among us, and he really wants to help us too.  As others have pointed out, “He is off on his next adventure.”  I believe that to be so true.

I have been trying to recall when I first heard about Dr Wayne Dyer.  I think it was late 80’s, early 90’s.  I had his paperback book Your Erroneous Zones, and read it in the early 90’s.  I liked the book, but I am not sure I really understood what he had written about.

In the fall of 2002, I had just finished watching his lecture on PBS, and started to reread his first book Your Erroneous Zones.  I decided I wanted to purchase a few other of his books over the year and also purchased, his CD, 101 Ways to transform your life.   I listened to this cassette tape on morning, noon and night, as I was cleaning and cooking or folding the laundry at times. The cassette had 101 quotes of what spirituality is for us. This cd helped me to understand the difference between spirituality and religion.  To be honest, it took me quite a while to truly understand the words, he was sharing with us.  It was so calming for me and helped me to understand who God is and how he can assist us and also how much he truly loves us too. I was learning about how we are spiritual and physical beings at the same time. It was the beginning of my spiritual awakening.

In 2004, I had the opportunity to go to Boston, to the Empire Theatre on Tremont Street, to see Wayne Dyer, perform his lecture for a PBS show, The Power of Intention, which was to be published by Hay House, the spring of 2005.  I was in line, waiting to go, in to the theatre, Dr Dyer, was passing us and saying hello to us, as he was walking down the sidewalk.

From 2005 till spring the of 2007, I continued reading his books, and continued to purchase his CDs and listen to his lectures of PBS.  That winter of 2007, I found out he was going to be in Boston, for a weekend Seminar, in April of that year.   I bought a ticket for the weekend seminar.  The name of the weekend was The Morning and the Afternoon of your life.  He spoke of how the morning of your life is in your 20’s and 30’s, possibly going into your 40’s and The Afternoon of your life from your mid 40’s to your 60’s and beyond. It was a wonderful weekend. I had this idea that I wanted to write Dr Dyer a letter, to thank him for the weekend of possibilities, presented to us.  I was able to get his address and I sent him a letter to his place in Maui.  A few months later, a package came in the mail for me, from Dr Dyer.   He sent me a card with a short note and two cds, some note cards and few other goodies…. I was quite thrilled to say the least, that he took the time to send this package and to receive a personal note from him too.

His message on the front of the card with a large oak tree on the front part of the card

“There is an ancient simple truth that the mighty oak was once a little nu that held its ground.

We’re all a mighty oak in the making and it’s all right to be a little nutty as long as we hold our ground.”  Dr. Wayne Dyer.

I thought was a perfect description for what I was going through at the time. Searching for answers but also in line with my life’s work as a preschool teacher at the time.  The acorns and tree reminded me of the song, “I am a little acorn nut” I use to teach my preschoolers every fall.

On the inside of the card, he wrote,

Peg-

I so enjoyed your deeply honest letter- Stay connected to Your Source- You are Divinity Itself.

Love

Wayne Dyer.

I was a giddy school girl for weeks and thrilled he had responded back to me.

And so the years continued and I continued to work as a teacher and case manager. I also started my work with angels and enrolled in my coach certification class and then perusing my writing and mentoring and teaching. I read his book Wishes Fulfilled and would listen to his show on Hay House Radio occasionally.

In the fall of 2014, I was listening to his show, and I had the opportunity to speak to him for a few minutes.  It was a wonderful conversation, about children, as he was writing his last book, and a few other things and then he says

“Well I could talk to you all day, but I better go.”  I said, Thank you for the conversation and have a nice day. After the conversation, I was thinking, it would be wonderful to speak some more, sometime.

And I guess I can speak to him anytime I am able or need to.

You can speak to him too, because he really wants to help all that he can.

Two weeks after I had spoken to Dr Dyer on his show, he sent me his newest book, written by his Daughter Serena and Dr. Dyer together.

Don’t Die With Your Music still in You.

 

I so resonate with that title, because I feel this is what we are all called to do in our own way.  No matter what your skills are or abilities are, we need to be empowered to be in a place of doing this for ourselves and for others.  Because as Dr. Dyer says “The only true emotion is Love.”  The rest comes from ego. And you all know what you do with the committee in the head, i.e. ego. You fire that committee.

Don’t forget to look at the sky, you never know who may be stopping by.

It could be an angel, or a symbol that may have some meaning for you, on this day

When looking for a sign or some validation, sometimes you can receive this by looking up at the sky…Peg Jones 2015

Angel Messages, Archangel Michael, balanced life, Healing with the Angels, Heart Place, journey

Happy May  


I was looking through some of the articles, I had written in past years. I am finding, that I speak of the heart place a lot. Of being in the heart place, of feeling the joy of being there, and knowing the peace, is there too.
And many tell me, “I have a hard time of staying in this place, the heart place”, OR I may hear… I can’t get there, no matter how hard I try to get there. Then, they give their reasons, and all very valid reasons too.
The angels over the years, have shown me, through visuals, and feeling, and also hearing, what the heart place is like. And they have shown me, how the heart place is truly a place where our ego is not the boss of who we are and how we think about people, places and things, life situations and all the drama that comes with it. Our judgements, and our values, and projections, traditions and culture, and every other thing that we are experiencing. They tell me that we are so busy dealing with the drama, that we don’t give ourselves a chance to just be, and to turn off the drama of what we call our lives.
The heart place is our place of higher thinking, our spiritual thinking and spiritual insights, practices, and who we truly are. We all have times of discontent, and we all have responsibilities, but can choose to decide which life drama to react to. The angels have mentioned to me, that a good way to measure the way our heart place is being forgotten is the amount of self-chatter we have…and how we are feeling at that particular time or moment.
And so I asked the angels what they had to say about the heart place today, a few years after my conversations with them about this topic.
Our message for May,
Living in the Heart Place, is letting the heart show you the way, to live authentically in every way. It’s a way of letting creativity creep into your life and let your self be you with full expression in many different ways we have the access to. It’s an allowing of letting ourselves be true to self and true to those that we love too. It’s the responsibility of sharing our authentic self, but yet able to learn, grow and share who you as a human, truly are, as human and spiritual being, both of which you are.. Keeping that balance, of knowing the truth of you. Listening to the insights you receive and understanding, the realms of the universe and how they do communicate with all of us.
It’s taking stock of us as humans, from a more spiritual point of view, and understanding how ego protects us, yet it keeps us in a place that may not serve us. Such as constant negative thinking, or ranting….not that ranting is negative.100% of the time. It’s knowing our worth, and understanding the potential of who we truly are.
It’s also a choice, whether to hold grudges or resentments, when the situation can possibly be changed around or to forgive, and to let self-move on. It’s to consider the chatter in our head that can go on for day’s months, years that may not serve us.
It’s keeping our boundaries intact and also understanding the root of where our values and truths lie. We also are taking that time for us, so that we may grow in ways that are proactive and healing, for ourselves and the world at large. And to be empowered on every level, of whatever we may be faced with in our life.
We are here on the earth plane, to serve others in many different capacities, but we have to also help ourselves too, as we are helping others too. So when we begin to understand, the heart place, changes do happen and we look for ways to understand the heart place, which we haven’t heard very much about, in our lifetime. Be we are understanding this so much more, and there is much talk about the heart place…
We your Angels, will help you to see and understand the heart place, when the connection has been made. They also remind us that there are different ways to know or call this heart place too. But all of us have this understanding…in one way or another.
It’s called Love. It’s the only emotion that truly counts, because it is so powerful.
We your angels are here for you always.
When I was channeling this message, I thought of when I was first married and I had hearts all over my apartment, in pictures, Knick knacks, and crafty things for the house… And I had no idea why, except that it had to do with love, and being a newlywed I thought it was pretty cool, I could find all these items with hearts on them. And I loved the country theme in decorating then too. American folklore decoration was a true passion for me too.
Many years later, realizing the angels had gently directed me to write a book, and seeing the theme was heart place, love, forgiveness, and healing with the symbol of the heart.
Love is all you need, and when we strive for learning and understanding what this heart place is all about, it all has to do with love, of others and most importantly, our love for our self, which for me is a work in constant progress.

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.”

A Thanksgiving Message: 8 Ideas about how we can be grateful for all we have in 2014 By Peg Jones


 

 

A Thanksgiving Message:

8 Ideas about how we can begrateful for all we have in 2014

A year has passed and the Thanksgiving holiday is upon us.  This day marks the beginning of the holiday season for those of us in the USA.  Before I write of the activities of what happens after Thanksgiving Day, I want to speak of Thanksgiving, a holiday to share with family friends and a time to be thankful for what you have at this time.  For me, it’s about the relationships with my family and friends.  It’s also about all that I have to be grateful for in my life and letting the people in my life know how I feel.  It’s about thanking my higher power and all that are in our universe, protecting and guiding us on a daily basis.  Thanking them for the help and guidance they have shared with me this past year.

I have found over the years, that when I am not in a place of appreciation, that is time for me start writing down what I am grateful for.  And it’s also time for me to write at least three things that was positive as I live my day.  I have found that when I do  this, I find that I am feeling better,  about all that is happening in my life, no matter how small.  The fact that there is positive activity going in my gives me hope and gives me confidence that all is well.  I am also letting the universe know, that I am grateful too.

When I write my grateful list I try to write at least ten things on a given day.  If on the next day when I write my grateful list I make an effort to write a few more different items but if I find I am running out items I repeat some of what I wrote the previous night.  After about a week, I try for 15 items, and continues for a few more each day…  I usually go to up to 20 over a period of a few weeks.  I have found that when I make this list I do find myself becoming very grateful for all that I do have.

So in thinking about the grateful list, I thought why not include children, grandchildren, partner, friends, or a even a group of friends in making this list in  a creative way.  So here are a few ways, I have been inspired to share today,

  1. Instead of a list, each day, purchase or decorate notebook or a journal that you absolutely fall in love with.  Use this journal to write down all that you are grateful for..You can draw, or paint, what you are grateful or write poetry about being grateful too.
  2. Maybe invite your children, no matter what the age to do the same..
  3. Make a grateful affirmation board of all you are grateful and add to it as you find or think of thing. You can do this for you personally or invite family members to participate too.
  4. Another thing you can do with family is to have a journal for the family members to add as they go through their week or day.. Then put their name next to what they had written.
  5. Have a white board to write down all you are grateful as your day goes by.
  6. Draw a large heart or purchase one at a craft store and have kids or partner write / what they are grateful, and or they can draw as above,  put pictures in the heart too signifying , what they may be grateful for. Making it as colorful as desired.
  7. Thanksgiving is agreat time to do some of these projects too.
  8. Thanksgiving or holiday time is a good time does them with family. Or any other time for that matter.

I asked the angels, their take on what they want to tell us about Thanksgiving or the reason for the holiday.

So this is what I heard:

“Letting go of the ego and letting  go of what is in our head, and going to the heart place, we are able to wipe away the negativity or  frustration of what we don’t have, cant’ have and focus on, what we do have in our life that will help us to be grateful  forthe gifts in our life.  Letting go of the ego, we can begin to see differently and we  can begin to understand how lucky we truly are in our life..  The angels of protection and the angels of healing are with you always. All you have to do is to ask for guidance and they will help you immediately. They also say that when we go to our heart and ask for their help, they will be with us“ Thanksgiving is a time of being with family and friends that matter. Celebrating each other and knowing that time spent together is precious.  They add, Make this the best holiday possible, to celebrate, uniqueness of each person you will be spending time with, this holiday.”

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

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.

Summertime and the Angels


 

By Peg Jones

Summer time is here and the going is easy….  I love the summertime, even though its only 3 -4 months in the Northeast of the USA.  The days are full of warm sunny days and we live our days pretty carefree, and lot less thinking negative thoughts.  Life seems to be much lighter, and all is well in our part of the world.

So I asked the angels, today, what do they want to me to talk about this month. Did they have a message?  Did they have a subject, they want to speak to us about,  or did they just want to just stay in the back ground, and let me do some writing,  of what is on my mind, today.

The answer I was received was, for me, to write what is in my heart today, on June 30 th, 5:30 pm.  One thing that I feel in my heart, is gratitude for all the universe has bestowed upon me in my world and the people who are in my life, at this time.  I am grateful, for the sunny days and for the days that are not all that sunny.  I am grateful for roof over my head and the food that I eat.  I am grateful for peace in my heart and joy that is around me.  I am grateful my health and for the direction I receive in trying to continue to living a healthy life.  I am grateful for the people who I speak to each day, whether it is on the phone or in person.  I am grateful for my husband and for the way he shows his love to me each day.  I am grateful the gifts that have been given to me by the universe and for the way they help me to remember my worth in this world.

Life isn’t always easy to live, and we all have issues we have to face that are upsetting, very troubling to us.  Yet on the other hand, when we learn to be grateful despite the negative happenings, the act of listing the things we are grateful for can for even a few minutes, help us to focus on the good in our life too..  Sometimes, it takes some really hard work to find that, because our human way of approaching our life shows up continually.  But when we remember that we too are spiritual beings, and let our spiritual self take over a bit, that we can find some reprieve for the feeling that may block the feeling joy and happiness, and help us to understand that we are more that what we may be feeling at a particular time.

In my work with the angels, and understanding what my purpose is for my life time,  and helping others to see their purpose,  the common thread I see in all of this is to learn about love.  Love of self and love of each person that comes into our life.  To understand, that we are here and that we know each other for a reason.  Whether is there is a lesson to learn, or a something that may be needed to heal from, or working out something from the past.  Sometimes, the most difficult people in our lives are put there for a very important reason, to help to learn specific lessons in our lives.  We don’t always understand them or appreciate them at the time.  And we may never see the lesson in meeting this person or situation.  That is ok…  It may help us in some way as we live our life on the earth.

The angels remind me many times of our worth, and love they have for us. That the plan of our God and the guidance we receive as we live our life from the universe and from those we come into contact with each day is important, and to look for the good in all.  The universe is here for us, and so many of go through our day with a prayer, of asking guidance and direction.  We can also go through our days of just reacting, from the stress or from the happening of each day…  Our angels are with us, and our God is with us, too.  They are truly helping us through our days; we only need to take time to listen to the messages and to the synchronicity that occurs each day.

Embracing our spiritual self and our physical self together and knowing both aspects of them are so very important for us understanding how the ego plays a big part in our life and how our higher self is important too.  So many of us have different understanding of this concept of higher self and the importance of embracing both, yet keeping a balance, of our body, mind and spirit.

It has taken me a long to understand of all three being balanced, to help us understand our purpose in our life, and who we truly are..  Many time we hear, we are who we think we are,  in our body, or physical self. We have a spiritual side too, and when we understand all that this entails, then we do have a different understanding our existence and reason for being here.

I wanted to end this article with a message from my book, Living in the Heart Place With Your Angels: Daily Angelical Whispers Throughout the Year.

July 2

Ask in your heart, what is the most important thing to do for yourself?  We, your angels, ask you this question because we feel that when you know the answer you will know the next step on your journey. When you know the answer you will not need to be concerned about other peoples’ opinions and views of the angels.  We ask you to stay in your truth and to do for yourself what you do for others. Let your vision be the goal point of your journey and know that all is well.

Journal exercise:

Ask yourself, “What is the most important thing to do for myself?”  Take some time to answer this. Think about it and journal about it.

 

Wishing everyone a wonderful July, where ever you are.  The angels are helping us to remember, all that we are and how each of us is truly worthy of all we have to offer to those in our world.
