Angel of Openness

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,
