Happy Easter!

What joy to find Jesus' forehead lit up with a rainbow this morning. The glass wind chime sun catcher hanging in the living room delivered a perfect message. He has risen!

Many blessings,

An Easter Bunny

I saw a baby bunny in the meditation garden at dusk this morning, but he hopped away before I could take his picture. So Easter is on its way. A glorious time of year to reflect on the resurrection energies. Nature shows it best. The yellow irises are in full bloom. The Sweet Williams made it through the harsh winter and are singing their own song.

Yesterday I moved a fake boulder in the Magdalen garden. Underneath the hollow rock, I was saddened to find daffodil shoots. They had done their best to grow, having pushed through the dirt, they reached maturity, but with no sunlight, they never bloomed. Last winter, I moved the large rock to a new spot without realizing spring bulbs were sleeping there. Although I was sorry for my lack of planning, it was a good lesson about not hiding under a bushel, but coming out in the light to reach our full potential. To blossom. Rabbit symbolizes new beginnings, fertility, and overcoming old fears. Now is the time to rise and shine.

Happy Easter in the Name of the Living Christ,

Jesus in the Garden

An opossum stirring in the garden woke me up last night. It was a gift to see the moon shining brightly through the old apple tree. Having watched the movie Jesus of Nazareth, I thought about him as I looked at the moon. This was the same moon he saw in the garden as his disciples were sleeping. The Son of Man was all alone. He prayed, "Father if Thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless, not my will but thine be done." (Luke 22:42). It turned out at that crucial moment an angel came to help him, strengthening Him.

Moonlight flooded my bed and I soaked it up. I thanked the Father for his gift of the Christ. I thought about James Dillet Freeman's poem, I Am There. It's on the moon. Looking at the moon is comforting. God is always with us, we are never alone. He has given his angels charge over us.

Many blessings,

When Angels Visit...

My new friend, Mary,  in DeLand, shared this wonderful explanation of angels shortly after we met. Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy explains that "they are pure thoughts from God."

 "When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of  a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts.  Oh, may you feel this touch,--it is not the clasping of the hands nor a loved person present; it is more than this: it is a spiritual idea that lights your path!
 The Psalmist saith:  "He shall give His angels charge over thee."  God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies.  Never ask for tomorrow:  it is enough that divine Love is an ever present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment.  What a glorious inheritance is given to us through the understanding of omnipresent Love!  More we cannot ask:  more we do not want:  more we cannot have.  This sweet assurance is the "Peace, be still" to all human fears, to suffering of every sort."

Truly when we still our minds, divine inspiration comes on the wings of Love.  What a comforting thought that He has given His angels charge over us.

Releasing the Power of Psalm 91 for Protection

Don't wait until the next storm to begin releasing the power of Psalm 91 in your life.  This scripture is for protection and the key to its success is abiding in the Shadow of the Almighty.  To abide some place is to live there, not just stop by as a last resort when everything is falling apart.  The Secret Place of the Most High is not a physical place but a state of consciousness.  As we begin to fulfill our part of the Psalm by staying close to God, we are assured that God will deliver us.  That He will give His angels charge over us to guide us in all of our ways.  They shall raise us up in their arms, lest we dash our foot against a rock.  In other words, as I go about my business, angels surround me, raising my mind to Christ consciousness, so I don't get tripped up by my ego or mortal mind.

I started releasing the power of  Psalm 91 over three years ago.  Now  I spend time reciting this powerful psalm of strength and encouragement every day.  Although this scripture doesn't promise that we won't experience times of trouble, we do have the assurance that God will answer our calls, because we know Him.  He will not only deliver us but He will set us on high and honor us with long life and show us His salvation.

Our last night in  Florida, a terrible T-storm hit the area with high damaging winds.  We were in the house, watching the storm when  I remembered the words of an old friend who once advised us on what to do during a  storm.  Go to the window and raise your hands, softly speaking to the storm by saying,  "Peace be still in the name of the Living Christ." 

After praying Psalm 91, I did just that.   Soon the storm calmed down. I know that I was not the only one praying., but prayer is powerful and it works.   It is often said, why worry when you can pray. 

Imagine our surprise, after the storm passed,  we were amazed that a heavy  tree limb had fallen in the driveway.  Its branches just inches away from our parked car.  The car was packed, ready to head home the next day.  Elliot's keyboard and studio equipment were in the trunk.  We clapped, thanking the angels for watching over us.

If you want to learn more about this psalm of protection, you may want to sign up for a  free e-class on releasing the power of this psalm.

Duties to Our Guardian Angel

1)  Always remember that you are in the presence of your Guardian Angel.  In whatever place you may be, in whatever secret recess you may hide, think of your Guardian Angel.  Never do in the presence of your Guardian Angel what you wouldn't do before the Lord.

2)  Refrain from using every word or gesture, or taking any action that would displease or grieve your heavenly companion. 

3)  Keep your thoughts at a higher altitude.

4) Call for his/her help to overcome temptation, for protection, for guidance, and for all necessities.

5)  Remember to express the most profound gratitude for the countless blessings he/she provides.

We are so blessed to be aware of the presence of these divine messengers.

Have a joyful day,

The Guardian Angel of Where We Live

 (Archangel Raphael)

Several months ago while traveling , I came across a little booklet, The Guardian Angels.  It was a perfect find. I read a wonderful recommendation that I took to heart. It helped me see things differently.  It was to remember that all the towns or cities we drove through have as many Guardian Angels as there are inhabitants, and to send them a loving salutation. I already knew about honoring the Guardian Angel who oversees the city where I live, but the idea of greeting the Guardian Angels as we traveled was something new. 

 I followed this timely advice for the rest of our trip, acknowledging the Guardian Angel as  we were driving by each city. . Coming upon the sign on the highway, I would greet the Guardian Angel of Saint Augustine, Daytona Beach, DeLand, etc.   The results were amazing.  Blessings unfolded enriching our travels. We were in the flow of divine timing.

Many of you may know that Archangel Raphael is the Angel of Healing, of Travel, of Happy Meetings, of Marriage, and of Joy.  The next time you plan on taking a trip, you may want to pray to him for a smoother journey.

Entertaining Angels. Is Anybody Home?

The busyness of our daily lives competes for our attention, lessening our likelihood of recognizing the influence of angels.  To stay angel-minded is to still the mind and tune inward, listening for divine inspiration.  Our true spiritual home is in the One Mind, in God and to entertain angels unawares it is important to be at home in the Mind.  We were made in God's image.  We are spiritual, dwelling in the divine Mind.  By remembering this wonderful truth, we can feel the presence of angels and we can "entertain" them.  By being at home to angels, we find ourselves in heaven. Our thinking is at a higher altitude.

When an angel message comes to us, our thoughts are lifted to a higher idea of God, of Christ consciousness. We have a clearer vision.  If we take time to open the door and invite these messages into our minds, we find ourselves to be more use to those about us.  By keeping alert  to entertaining our angel visitors, there is nothing we shall not know.   But often our distractions drown out the heavenly rap on the door, and our celestial visitors are shut out. We miss the golden opportunities, the Thoughts of God that come enfolded in angel wings they bring. 

Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science defines angels this way:  "Angels are not etherealized human beings, evolving animal qualities in their wings; but they are celestial visitants, flying on spiritual, not material pinions."

Today I will try to stay more alert to entertaining angel visitors by keeping my mind at Home, in God.  When inspiration comes, I will welcome them,  grateful for their visitation.  "Angel food cake, anyone?"
