Last weekend my good friend Pat passed along to me her collection of angel books. The timing couldn't have been better with my upcoming talk at the ARE Edgar Cayce Forum on Angels in Everyday Life. I found one book especially helpful. Angels of Grace by Anselm Gruen, a German monk. His book introduces 50 attributes of God in angelic form. I took a suggestion from the Introduction and made my own deck of these angel cards. With the New Year coming soon, he recommended drawing an angel and trusting that the one you picked is the very angel you need for the New Year.
The book is a wonderful reference with practical everyday applications. I was so inspired by the idea, I prepared a basket of Angel cards for the Forum attendees to choose as an angel for the 2011. The more we open our hearts to the angels, the more we become aware of the loving presence that enfolds our lives, moment by moment.
By the way my Angel was The Angel of Courage which I definitely need when speaking in public.
P.S. Although the book was published in 1998, it is available on amazon.com
