Feast of the Guardian Angels

Jesus said, "See that you don't despise any of these little ones. Their angels in heaven, I tell you, are always in the presence of my Father in heaven." I recently learned that today is the Feast of the Guardian Angels. One of the first prayers Catholic children learn is, "Angel of God, my guardian dear..."

Traditionally many parents have a picture in the room of their child showing the Guardian Angel protecting two children crossing a foot bridge. The presence of a guardian angel is the beginning of faith for a young child.

It is comforting to know that Guardian Angels are not just for children. Each one of us has at least one guardian angel that accompanies us on our sojourn here. Our angels love, guide, and protect us when we open our hearts and invite them into our lives.

The angels will connect us to our highest source of knowing, the Higher Self or I Am Presence. One school of thought is that our Guardian Angel is actually our Higher Self that became separated from us when we entered the earth plane. Our goal is to ascend, attuning our minds to that state of God-consciousness from which we fell.

The Angels encourage to stay in harmony in our feelings. We are moving constantly in great, magnificent vibratory activities, but our brains are too dense to register them. When you place your attention on your I Am Presence (Higher Self/ Guardian Angel) the currents of Light flow into your brain expanding the Light within every cell of your body. The more you focus on your Higher Self, the clearer your guidance becomes. Without this attunement, you only get fragments of promptings from your Presence.

When faced with a problem, still your mind and make the call to your Higher Self. Focus on the Light of your true Self, and not on the problem.

Our attention is our most powerful gift. What we focus on, we compel ourselves to become.

When you realize your attention has been on discord, seeing obstacles of all kinds, then know that when you turn and give your attention to the Presence, where all perfection is, you will see wonderful changes taking place.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.
