A Penny: An Angel Blessing


I enjoy spreading hopeful messages.  Sometimes I'm guided to toss a penny here and there as I go about my day.  To find a penny is a sign from the angels that everything is in divine order--so try not to worry.  It will all work out.

I recall a time in 1999 at the Association for Research & Enlightenment (A.R.E.) in Virginia Beach. There is a beautiful meditation room on the top floor with an expansive view of the ocean. While sitting alone that day, I closed my eyes in meditation. I asked for clarity about my life's purpose. A healing energy is always present in that special place.  Nothing significant came to me, but I had more peace. Afterwards, I opened my eyes, enjoying the vista of the garden terrace outside the window on the open roof deck. Tall angel statues, rocks, the ocean waves just beyond. On a whim, I said out loud, "God, if I see a penny out there, I'll know You really are listening to me."

Gazing out the windowed wall, there was no penny on the patio. It didn't seem very likely anyway.

But, to my surprise, a thought came to me. Leave a penny for someone else.  I tried to open the balcony door, but it was locked--so much for my plan. As I turned around... a shiny penny was there on the padded chair. On the seat directly behind where I had sat in meditation!  I jumped! "Thank you, God!" I grinned, picking up the joyful sign in somewhat disbelief.

The veil seemed thin at that moment. Feeling lighter and curious, I checked the large Bible opened on the table. What page was it on? I wondered.

Psalm 92.

 I read these words: "It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord and to sing praises unto thy name, O most high."

I was grateful for the message.  To give thanks to God for Life is a most worthy purpose. Everything else will unfold at the right time.


Wishing you a day filled with joyful enthusiasm!

P.S. Last week this directional  arrow in the public library parking lot caught Elliot's attention as we walked by. A penny was embedded in the concrete. A permanent penny on the path! I laughed.   I wanted to return with my camera and get a photo. When the idea came to write about the penny in a blog, how disappointing.  The arrow had been repainted along with the copper penny.

 Oh well, I knew it was there--that sign from the angels. When I returned to the car, Elliot and I laughed as Frank Sinatra sang on the radio...She talks like an angel talks...she walks like an angel walks.. The synchronicity was amusing, and the angels seemed to be having fun. I love the symbolism of angels pointing the way--the heavenly arrow.  Whether we see them or not, angels definitely find ways to make their joyful presence known.
