A Camel Angel Message

                             
                                                                 Life is like a camel:
                                                                 you can make it do
                                                             anything except back up.
                                                                 -- Marcelene Cox


I'm not so sure my grandmother Jessie in heaven didn't pick out this camel gift in a storefront window at Christmastime. She had a favorite old rock shaped like a camel's head that would serve as a door stopper. Beige in color, it resembled the face of a camel, complete with eyes, a nose, and a smile. 

Camels are hardy creatures equipped to endure long treks across the desert. They represent perseverance and survival, carrying us through the dry barren patches of life. This morning I became aware of a greater significance of this animal and the role it played in the Bridegroom's visit in the ancient Hebrew marriage tradition. The Bridegroom must travel by camel to get his bride. He rides on the camel with an entourage of family and friends trailing behind him on foot. They make their way to the tent city of the bride whose family and friends are waiting to receive them. The groom dismounts from the camel and the ceremony begins.

This tradition takes us to a higher level as we see that God is the Bridegroom and comes to us across time and space. We are each the bride, and we only need to open up our hearts to receive Him.

Love and joyful blessings,

Creating Space For Change





      
  Angels can fly because
   they take themselves lightly.
--G.K. Chesterton

I learned a new word this week. Minimalism. To live with less. Maybe you've heard of it. There's a documentary on Netflix that I have yet to watch on this subject, but the trailer sent me on a quest that stirred up the nest. It's the idea of living lighter by letting go of unnecessary stuff and keeping life simple. Anything that I didn't absolutely love, or haven't used in several years was gathered up. Before long, the car was loaded with boxes and bags of kitchen ware, knick'knacks, books, dishes, pots and pans, CD's, clothing, decorations, etc. I plowed through closets and cupboards so fast that Elliot's head spun as we drove to the local thrift shop.

Living lighter feels better; the house is more spacious and the stagnant energy that had collected in the corners was freed up. The Angels encourage us to lighten our load.

I've always heard the universe abhors a vacuum, so I shouldn't have been surprised when my friend called the next day. Did I want some free furniture from her office that was closing down? As tempting as it was, I declined. More or less, I am getting there day by day. What better time to clear out the old and make space to begin a new year by sharing with others.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love is...



Early dawn this morning, a pink sky holds promise of a new day unfolding. A holy hush blankets the neighborhood, a stillness that speaks to my soul. Dark branches of towering trees silhouette the pastel canvas, as I pause to gaze out the window. The only sound is Angel cat snoring in a deep sleep tucked under the dining room table.

 The soft glow from the little Christmas tree warms the room in cozy comfort.  In the quietude, I can feel the presence of the angels. 

 What is...is. And what is, is always good and always Love. Love is quiet and constant, it has no need to boast or brag of its Power. A silent knowing of absolute certainty there is no other power.

Let the world have its petty tyrants who seem to rule with iron clad fists. 

In truth, gentleness holds greater power, like the water that naturally carves through a hard rock.

So, "fear not," the angels whisper, love will always prevail and we can always rejoice in a silent victory. Love can permeate and penetrate the hardest of hearts. Love will make a way.                                                     

            Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it does not dishonor others, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. ... It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. I Cor. 13:4-8 NIV
           

Love and joyful blessings,

The Monrovia Star: An Angel Message

The glow of a big white Moravian star caught my eye at Lowe's. The last one on the decorations shelf, I grabbed the box, and joyfully moved to the checkout feeling the Christmas spirit. 

After all, the Bethlehem Star had led the Magi to the babe in the manger and my own feet guided me to this big beautiful star as a reminder to keep following the Light no matter what.

The holiday glow faded a bit back at home.  Assembly was required to build the magnificent star;  26 large plastic rays needed to be snapped into a large grid orb.  What was needed most was patience to follow the directions step by step to create the symmetrical Star of Wonder. 


At first, some of the star's rays snapped easily into the grid.  Then, others were more resistant. And, then there were those rebel rays that popped out of place as new rays were inserted!

 Rays were snapping and popping. 

Elliot and I sat on the sofa, side by side, intently doing our light work, with the pile of rays waiting to be launched.  Humor set in as we fumbled with the unwieldy nova. My husband has the patience of Job, but I must say at one point, I popped, ready to return the Star for a refund. 

Perseverance paid off.  We stuck to it, one ray at a time, and asked the angels for help.  It worked!  Within an hour the beautiful Moravian star was shining in the dining room window, and I had learned another lesson in light.   


"A Light from on high
will dawn upon [us]... 
to shine upon and give light to those who sit in 
darkness and in the shadow
of death, to direct and
 guide our feet... into the
way of peace."
                                                                       Luke 1:78-79
                                                                                                  AMP Bible


Enjoy your journey with the Angels.

Archangel Gabriel - The Winter Solstice



Today we welcome the Winter Solstice and Archangel Gabriel. He is the governor of the winter season and his name means God is my strength. Archangel Gabriel is the heavenly Annunciator who brings glad tidings of new life. He was the angel who announced to Mary the role she would play in birthing the Christ child. According to scripture, he also appeared to Zechariah announcing God's plan for his barren wife Elizabeth to conceive a baby. Their precious child would become the forerunner of Christ Jesus, the Light of the world. 

Archangel Gabriel helps to stir a greater appreciation for the divinity within each of us as the angel of Love and Hope.

The winter solstice is a time to kindle our inner Light in spite of the outer darkness. By spending quiet time in contemplation and meditation we can awaken to our true divinity.

During this time of year the entire angelic hierarchy draws close to the earth, basking the world in rays of divine love. This outpouring brings an expansion of consciousness beyond the physical world for those who still their minds and attune to it.

Thank you, Archangel Gabriel.

Love and Joyful Blessings,


Rae Karen

An Angel Lesson: Unity of Light

My heart was feeling troubled over the state of our country and its dividing factions.  Red states, blue states which when blended harmoniously red and blue transform into purple, a spiritual color reflecting higher consciousness.   I was praying for peace and the words divine order came to mind.  Then I was shown a colorful strand of Christmas lights.  The bulbs although different in color: red, green, blue, orange, and white all were lighted by the same Source energy.  The light coursing through the unity of one cord was at the core of each reflection.  And so I could see how it truly is with humanity; on the exterior we may appear to have a different complexion but underneath the material projection is the Light that makes each of us glow in our own shade.  I was so thankful for this simple lesson.  And several days later, while waiting in line at Lowe's, there on the shelf was this package of multi colored lights that brought a smile.

I am beginning to see the more I stay plugged into the universal light, the higher consciousness can shine bright for miracles to abound.  The evergreen tree that holds the lights symbolizes eternal life and brings joy to the heart as we celebrate our spiritual identity.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,

An Angel in the Atmosphere

During the blessed month of December, the angels draw closer to the Earth, spreading love and peace. You can feel their joyful presence in the air.  This morning a wonderful sign appeared in my email box.  A gift from a friend in England. His daughter had captured this amazing photo of the northern lights shining bright over Iceland.  A reminder perhaps to let our hearts grow warm as we open up to receive and share the gifts of divine love this month.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Thanksgiving Angel


Outside the open window
The morning air is all awash with angels.
     --Richard Wilbur

One thing usually leads to another as far as the angels are concerned.  Sunday morning a beautiful Monrovia star popped up on the shelf at Lowes. These stars are an absolute favorite. I had gone for flowers and returned with more light.  

That evening when the star shone in the dining room, I was guided to bring Mom's  Light angel from the porch to the large picture window in the dining room for those passing by to see.  Her countenance illumined the dark of the night.  But more was to come.

When sunshine poured through the window the next morning, the angel of light appeared in a beautiful silhouette on the floor.  A reminder that our Angels are with us in times of dreary darkness or bright sunshine, their presence is constant and the message is always Light.

Thanksgiving can be a difficult time for those who have lost loved ones.  Look for angel messages of comfort this week.  They are heart whispers from our loved ones that may appear unexpectedly as feathers, pennies, songs, or whatever speaks to your memory of your dear one.

We give thanks for all the blessings we receive and share to make this season filled with gratitude for all Life, eternal Love.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,

Angel of Transformation and Synthesis


Today two angels stuck together when I reached for a card from the angel bowl.  What a pleasant surprise, both were associated with the rainbow!  Rainbows continue to be a theme and show up in surprising ways.  Yesterday at the lake, the fountain spray reflected the sunlight in a warm array of rainbow colors.

At this time of spiritual transformation, the angels encourage us to keep the faith.  More is going on than we can understand so trust in the Love of God to break through any clouds. Call on the Angels of Transformation and Synthesis today and see what happens.

Peaceful blessings,

Another Rainbow Angel Message

Sunday evening while sitting on the porch, it was almost sunset when another rainbow appeared in the sky across the street.  I got a glimpse of it with the cellphone camera.  

These wonderful signs in nature encourage our thoughts to come up higher.  

We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies.
                          --Emily Dickinson

We have help with our spiritual acceleration. Thank goodness, the angels are here in full force.  Watch and pray for divine assistance. 

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Rainbow in the Clouds: An Angel Message





Try to be a rainbow in someone else's cloud.  
                                                             --  Maya Angelou

The angels speak the language of synchronicity.  The evening of 11/11 on our way to dinner, the angels directed our attention to a circular rainbow!  There it was high up in the clouds!  A wonderful sign of hope. 

The morning after the election, I was feeling blue and turned to something green for healing.  Kermit the Frog singing The Rainbow Connection.  You can listen here:https://youtu.be/S2DTLbTQj0I?list=RDS2DTLbTQj0I

After finding this rainbow photo on line this morning, the angels guided me to the perfect companion quote.   Enjoy listening to Maya Angelou's wisdom on rainbows and clouds on youtube.

11:11 Angel Portal Today





Cosmic energies are blessing the Earth today as the 11:11 portal is open.  Take time to focus on what you want rather than what you don't, as your thoughts will manifest more quickly today.  It is a portal of possibility for the highest good.  Take time to meditate and focus on bringing more Light into the world.  Make a wish and ask the angels for a sign that your heart's desire has been heard.

Love and joyful blessings,

The Man Who Talks With The Flowers

Dr. George Washington Carver (photo from Washington Daily News)


The Angels deliver messages in subtle ways. Sometimes we may find ourselves tuning in to a  TV program just in time to discover a book we are ready to read.  

That happened several years ago when a Christian talk show was discussing a fascinating book. I caught the title The Man Who Talks With The Flowers. Who was this man? Imagine my surprise that a brilliant scientist, Dr. George Washington Carver, the famous botanist who discovered the many uses for the peanut, as well as many other outstanding contributions was such a man. 

I'll admit I was relieved to learn that a gifted well known scientist could talk with the flowers.

A quote in the book gave me great hope:

"Dr. Carver said, "Last night as I rode to the auditorium I was holding a little white flower in my hand all the way, and in the silence while we rode, I was talking to it and it was talking to me. It told me some wonderful things. And the flowers have never failed to tell me the truth. It told me that there is going to be a great spiritual awakening in the world, and it is going to come from people up here, from people connected with you and me, from plain, simple people who know--not merely believe--but actually know that God answers prayer.

"It is going to be a great revival of Christianity, not a revival of religion. We can have religion and still have wars. But this is to be a revival of true Christianity. It is going to rise from the layman, from men who are going about their work and putting God into what they do, from men who believe in prayer, and who want to make God real to mankind."

Ihe intimate life story of Dr. George Washington Carver gives insight into his genius as well as his spiritual connection to nature that revealed many secrets to him. 

Glenn Clark's wonderful book about his spiritual friend, Dr. George Washington Carver, The Man Who Talks With the Flowers, can be found at  http://www.kessinger.net/ and also on Amazon.

Enjoy your day with the Angels and look for quiet time to reflect on nature and the beauty that surrounds you.

White Orchid Angel Message

"My holiness shines bright and clear today."  
           A Course in Miracles  

Orchids are  beautiful exquisite flowers. They  appear fragile and in need of high maintenance but the Angel of Education, my angel card for today, was about to teach me a lesson from nature. 

 Many months ago when my orchid had shared her final bloom, I tucked her underneath  a yucca behind the garden bench. I decided to just let it be, hoping she would bloom again...sometime. 
  
This morning while watering the garden, my heart leapt when I caught sight of a tall white flowering plant peeking over the garden bench! At first glance, I thought the white petals were from an ornamental ginger from Virginia Beach. 

But when I reached down and saw the pot, I smiled at the resurrection energy. 

My old hardy orchid had grown a new thick stalk to rise to the light and bloom. It was the tallest orchid I had seen. My thoughts turned to the recent high winds during the hurricane, and I was amazed by her endurance having  weathered so well in the storm.  With God all things are possible.

As I studied her white gentle blossoms, an angel message came regarding our own relationships with people and things.  When we let go of the need to control the outcome, Providence will take care of the results. 

Things bloom on time in amazing ways!  And the pink volunteer impatiens seeded by the wind in the same pot bloomed in a flowering testimony. Patience has its own reward.  Trust.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,

A Ladybug Angel Message


I've always loved ladybugs, but even more so since my Mom's passing several years ago. These friendly visitors have an uncanny way of making an appearance just when I need it most. 

This morning I was nudged to send my uncle a copy of my book Spiritual Lessons from Nature.  I wasn't so sure Mom hadn't given me the idea.  I scribbled a note to him regarding my favorite story in the book, Ladybugs on Parade, about Mom.

With the book mailed, I noticed the front yard was in need of weeding. Trumpet vines had overtaken the bushes from the recent rains.   

With the weeding complete, I got rearranged the potted flowers to add color to the front yard  I had moved a large pot of burgundy mums when I discovered a ladybug on my wrist! 

Her cheerful presence evoked a tearful, Awww, Mom.  It had been a long time since I last saw a ladybug.  

And to my delight, she immediately flew to my other hand, and landed on the tip of my finger. I watched her in wonder, this tiny messenger of love. 

Having completed her mission, she quickly flit her colorful red wings and departed on a new adventure. Mission accomplished. 

My heart was so thankful for the ladybug visitor. It was just the angel message I needed today!  Our departed loved ones remain very much a part of our journey by bringing joyful touches of love.  

By the way, in Nature-Speak, I learned that Chrysanthemum represents opening the heart, healing and vitality growing.  How perfect is that?

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,

Keeping A Watchful Eye: An Angel Message


                                             Mama Peacock and her chick after the storm

Thanks for all of your heartfelt prayers and watchfulness during Hurricane Matthew last week.  With Category 3 winds, rather than worry about the birds, I asked the Angels for protection for all Life as Elliot and I sat on the sofa watching the winds roar by our  large picture window. 

Knowing the power of Psalm 91, I was able to be still and quiet my nerves   I even playfully imagined gigantic angels sitting on the edge of our roof, their legs dangling over the eaves to keep the roof attached!

We knew something special had happened though...after the storm our pink plastic flamingos were still standing in the garden.  I do believe in the presence of God's angels and we are so thankful for the blessings and safety. Duke Energy had the electricity restored in several days.  Another lesson in gratitude for all that we do have.

                                 
A drive to the rehab to check on the peacocks today was extra sweet. Mama and her two baby chicks came out by the car to greet us!   Peacocks bring a message of watchfulness, and so they are a wonderful reminder to watch and pray in all kinds of weather.  Miracles abound.

Love and joyful blessings,

White Ibis: Angel Message of Gratitude

Stopping by the park for a touch of nature, it's fun to see what birds may be  waiting with a message.  A large flock of white ibis were feeding by the lake this morning.  These tall legged waders use their long beaks to dig down deep in the earth for nourishment.  

The one shown here struck a pose with one leg up before taking the next step. Since the ibis is a bird associated with the ancient Egyptian alphabet, I took note as a reminder of a recent lecture on the healing power of thanksgiving. The audience was encouraged to write down everything we have to be grateful for. If we dig deep down giving thanks for all things, big and small, during the good as well as the  not so good times, we will learn a powerful truth. The gift of thankfulness will bring both relief and release from any resentment or self-pity, creating space for the healing blessings of love and peace.  Gratitude is a powerful practice every step of the way.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful journeys,

When Pigs Fly!: An Angel Message


"When pigs FLY!" Do you remember that doubtful retort when you were being overly optimistic? 

Today in town, Elliot turned down an unexpected side street; one we had never used. But the detour was perfect!  To my surprise I caught a rare sight A PIG FLYING!  

This gigantic smiley PINK PIG  gliding in a blue sky above the tree tops made us both laugh.  Mom was up to something! 

 My 96 year old mom passed on  two years ago.  I had just been saying how much I missed her. This week she seemed especially close as I went through a challenge.   

Mom loved pigs. As a child she had a pet pig Suzannah on the farm. Over the years, her pig collection had hogged most of her curio cabinet. So this wonderful perfect pig fly-by gave me even more faith to keep on believing in the impossible.  Nothing is too difficult for God. Expect the unexpected.  

 What joy  our loved ones can surprise us by reaching through the veil with an uplifting message just when and how we need it most. We can rest in peace that our loved ones are closer than we think, watching over us with a heavenly smile of encouragement. 


Enjoy your day with the Angels, and look to be a Happy Learner as we travel the road back home.

Love and joyful blessings,

Breaking Free: An Angel Message



This unusual photo of concrete angels flying high turned up on the web. It made a lasting impression of how hard it can be to defy gravity on our own. Thoughts of doom, gloom, and guilt weigh us down. With the help of the angels, we can lighten our load and break free to experience a more concrete reality of our higher state of existence as a spiritual being, a holy Child of God. 

Becoming lighter we can lift upward in thought, no longer dragging the weight of outgrown limitations from the past.  With gratitude for the blessings in each moment, we become aware of the infinite love and beauty in all life that surrounds us.  

After writing this late at night, I found myself reaching for a book on angels, half way hoping to find a closing quote. Imagine my surprise at the very first one I came to:  "Angels make God's goodness concrete."    

Angels show their love for God through their
service of other creatures, just as we are 
enjoined to show our love for God by serving
one another.  Angels make God's goodness
concrete, both in this life and in the life to come.
     --Rev George Maloney

Enjoy your day with the angels. They love you and hope you will invite them into your experience.  It will defy gravity and your life will never be the same again if you just willingly meet them half-way.

Love and joyful blessings,



Rae Karen

Guardian Angel Prayer

Walking down the streets of historic St. Augustine, Florida, this praying angel posted by a house caught my eye.  I'm so thankful to God that I have a guardian angel accompanying me on my journey while on Earth.  In Bible days, people believed in the power of the angels to guide, watch, protect, and comfort. 

I've discovered what a blessing to invite my Guardian Angel to be with me as I go about my day.  It has made a world of difference.

Prayer to Your Guardian Angel 

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God's love commits me here,
Ever this day be at my side,
To light and guard,
to rule and guide.
Amen 




Enjoy your day with your Guardian Angel.

Love and Joyful blessings,

Angels Believe in You!


Angels often deliver a perfect message at the perfect time, and you know in your heart that it was meant for you in that special moment.  You can't help from smiling as you feel the joy that something significant is happening, something that goes beyond the physical senses.  Unseen loving help is with you, and you are not going it alone.   


Many years ago, when I was wrestling with a deep fear of public speaking, I found the strength and confidence needed when I stumbled upon this little angel statue, ANGELS BELIEVE-- IN YOU.  

My first public angel talk was coming up in a  few weeks, and I was scared. The little angel on display in the lobby of the Association for Research and Enlightenment was strategically placed, outside the bookstore entrance, along with other items for sale. I found myself vectoring over to check out the angel selections after I entered the lobby.   Somehow, I zoomed in on the perfect one:  "ANGELS BELIEVE-- IN YOU."  

Me?!" I murmured, picking the little winged one up. "Angels believe in me!"  I laughed, nervously.
I always say, "I believe in angels," and even rubber stamp, I Believe in Angels on my outgoing mail.  But...really? 

This new angle hit the mark, causing an inner stirring, boosting my spirit with strength and courage that I could do it.  I could step out in faith and speak on their behalf.  The Angels believed I could do it.  So who was I to doubt?

 For added confidence,  I bought the little angel and placed her in plain sight at home so I wouldn't forget if I became anxious as the speaking date drew nearer.  Angels Believe -- in You.  I wasn't doing this alone; there was a fullness of presence, and more peace in knowing that unseen help was guiding the way. It became a steady mantra.


More confirmation came the day of  my maiden voyage  Before my first angel lecture began, I got everything set up on stage.  I looked down at the little ANGELS BELIEVE -- IN YOU statue on the podium, hidden from view except by me. I smiled, waiting for the audience to arrive.  My husband had been setting up the chairs, and to his surprise, discovered a little white angel feather on the auditorium floor. "Angels are here," he laughed.

"I"ll take it!" I laughed, needing all the help I could get, remembering the feathers in Psalm 91. The little feather took its place by the ANGELS BELIEVE-- IN YOU statue. 

 All went well that afternoon, thanks to the help of the angels, and a little willingness on my part.  That day began a three-year volunteer speaking engagement where I shared the good news about the angels, once or twice a month at the A.R.E. as part of the free activities provided for visitors.  

So, if you have any fears that are holding you back from stepping out today, this message is for you, too. Angels Believe-- in You.  And, the back of the angel message is our ticket.  GIVE YOURSELF WINGS TO FLY!



Enjoy flying with the angels.


Love and joyful blessings,

Rose of Sharon: An Angel Message

                                              A Promise Fulfilled, The Rose of Sharon

I am a rose of Sharon,
a lily of the valleys.
            Song of Solomon 2:1

A dear friend showed up at my doorstep last winter with an unexpected gift.  A straggly bush called a Rose of Sharon.  Not much to look at, it held a promise of hidden beauty yet to unfold. 

I planted it in the front yard and waited, but all through the spring and summer not one bloom. I began to make plans to replace it. Until this morning, to my surprise, a smiley full faced blossom greeted me in the sunlight.  I got it, Practice patience, worthwhile things take time.  

And so it is with us, often we want the quick and easy way to success, but nature teaches otherwise.  An oak tree takes a hundred years to reach full maturity.  The roots need time to sink deep into the soil to anchor the tree safely during storms.

I just read that The Rose of Sharon was taken from the Song of Solomon 2:1.  Some Bible scholars see the Rose of Sharon as Christ.  Another message, in order for us to grow and  become Christ-like, it takes time and patience both with ourselves and with others.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,

The Protection of Psalm 91

                                         
     

                                                          
Lately, I've been guided to share more about the power and Presence of Psalm 91. Years ago during a visit, my mother encouraged me to memorize that wonderful Psalm. After all, for years I'd been reading it from the Bible to close the Sabbath every Saturday at sundown.  

In the Jewish custom, the comforting words of Psalm 91 helps to set the tone for the upcoming week. It assures that we abide in the company of angels, God's representatives, who have been assigned to watch, guide and protect us as we go about our daily duties. Angels can help us to avoid stumbling blocks on our path if we let them. They will lift us up so we don't dash our foot upon a rock. 

Mom thought I should know Psalm 91 by heart after years of reading it each Saturday night. Her playful remark, made me think of the time I often waste surfing the web, or just idly waiting in line at the store.  So I took it as a challenge, jotted down the Psalm on a note-card and tucked it in my purse.  I began memorizing a few lines at a time, adding more verses as often as time permitted.  Writing down passage by passage, I studied day by day building up momentum.  It took many months to commit to memory, but something amazing happened in the process.  As I closed my eyes to recite the new passage adding it to the memorized verses, I could feel a palpable inner strength within.  There truly was power in The Word.     

Now I pray Psalm 91 daily and carry it in my heart, thankful for the protection and comfort it offers. I've said it during hurricanes and other times of great distress, and find such peace from the spiritual truth from the power of these affirming words.  
.  
The Psalm begins: "He that dwelleth in the Secret Place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty," and later describes that protection as covering us with his feathers.  This happens when we dwell in the Place of the Most High (not a physical place but a restful state of higher consciousness).  In that Secret Place of the Most High we are  free from human error because we abide under God's Law of Love.  To abide in the Place of the Most High means to live there, to remain in that consciousness, and not run to it only in times of trouble.  

The angels abide with us in that high state of consciousness, when we open our hearts to know God, He will know us and deliver us from the snares of the fowler.  He will deliver us from adversity and set us on high.  

Have a wonderful weekend.

Joyful blessings,


Rae Karen

Happy Autumn Equinox! Welcome Archangel Michael!

                                Archangel Michael - Wikimedia Commons


Autumn is a season to reap a bountiful harvest from the hard work done over the summer. Archangel Michael, the governor of the season brings a higher shift in consciousness.  His name means "Who is as God". A fierce warrior, he  comes with his mighty sword of Truth to slay the dragons of our lower ego mind.  His powerful light triumphs over negativity. Often called the Dragon Slayer, he will remove obstacles on our path; he will set us free so we can make new decisions and plant the necessary seeds for next year's harvest.  With his help, self-doubt and fear will be conquered.  He provides the courage and strength to face any extreme difficulty with great determination. 



As the Archangel of transformation, Michael comes to assist all who have chosen to follow the spiritual path.  The Prince of Light, he brings the gift of patience and understanding. He is also called the Prince of Splendor and Wisdom, a powerful force for imparting divine consciousness to humanity.  



Fall is a testing time of the soul, a willingness to give up that which is most cherished.   It is comforting to know that we are not alone in the quest for inner freedom, strong spiritual support is available as we go through our trials and initiations.  During this time of year, guidance is strong through contact with nature, so time outdoors is good for soul growth. Enjoy the beautiful trees as they turn their colorful leaves and let go of the past to prepare for a new spring. 


Autumn is a time to:

--Harvest what has passed and let it go.
--Purify and transmute the lower self
--Overcome cherished obstacles that block our path
--Sow new seeds for next year's harvest
--Gain protection and guidance from Archangel Michael in order to advance

Welcome, Archangel Michael and thanks for all that you do to help our spiritual acceleration. 

Love and joyful blessings,

The Victory of the Palm: An Angel Message


And to you who are troubled, 
rest with us,
when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from 
heaven with his mighty angels.   
(2 Thes. 1:7 KJV)


The Harvest Full Moon as well as a lunar eclipse both occur today.  Change is in the air and the veil is getting thinner.  

I love synchronicity, the language of the angels.  You really can't make it happen.  So when it does, you get a burst of enthusiasm in your soul to awaken.

For instance, yesterday's palm tree energy came up again early this morning. My husband Elliot, up before dawn, was guided to pull out a small red book from the bookcase in his office.   I was still in bed when I heard the soft hooting of an owl outside the window.  The owl is known as the bringer of wisdom and had come when Elliot was reading  The Return of Jesus, a weathered old book that had once belonged to my Grandma

 Tucked away all these years, you can see the faded cover showing Christ standing by a tall palm tree and pointing to the upward way.  His comforting words are remembered in the lower right corner, "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again."

Dating back to the ancient Near East and the Mediterranean, the branches of the palm symbolize victory, triumph, peace and eternal life.  A wonderful reminder for this chaotic time in our history.  The Kingdom of Heaven is within us and the victory is in Christ.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,
