This morning my angel card was the Angel of Openness. "Let it all in," came to mind as I looked at her arms opened wide. "Don't hold back the love that is ever present. Don't block it with your self-imposed barriers, Let it in!" seemed to be her message.
A short time later while watering the meditation garden, I was appreciating the serenity of this patch of sacred space. The mist from the garden hose created a lovely image of a tropical rain forest. A thick wall of wild growing heart shaped potato vines canvass the back fence, giving privacy from our neighbor's lot. A tiny thought disturbed my peace. I thought about her weeding those vines off the link fence like she'd done last fall. She works full-time and with her extra large lot, I wondered why she bothered.
I should know better. Thoughts are things. A few minutes later, I caught sight of her kneeling down by the fence doing the very thing I'd dreaded. It was amusing--I am working with The Angel of Openness, and a barrier was coming down.
The first thing I had to do was to make peace with myself, and not react, not let it spoil my peace. I began to silently ask that this grievance in me be healed. I must admit that I wasn't so open as to give a cheerful Good Morning over the fence, but I recognized that I was slowly getting better in surrendering to what is. Remembering we need to love our neighbor, silently I sent her a blessing and came into the house to get busy writing.
Anything that disturbs my peace is an unhealed area, a wall I've built to shut love out. There is nothing going on outside my mind, my world reflects the thoughts I think. Today hopefully I'll allow the Angel of Openness to do a little more housekeeping and help me see the love of God everywhere. I keep forgetting the Universe is always conspiring for our highest good.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and blessings,
