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?"
