On Becoming Anew: An Angel Message

(Photo by Karen)

I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep. In my mind I kept hearing, "Behold, I will do a new thing now. I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." I recognized the Bible verse from Isaiah in my weekly lesson.

Hearing those affirming words, I become energized as I began to really take hold of and own God's promise. I was reminded that "with God all things are possible." As I laid in bed, in the dark, I could see the outline of the old camphor tree outside. I felt such a sense of promise and fullness, soon I fell back to sleep.

In the light of a new day, as I write, I can see more plainly that this sacred tree is an example of how God works, in time. What a radical change in identity... from a tiny hard seed laying in the darkness, it has grown into a towering citadel offering food and shelter to the birds and squirrels.

The birthing process seems strange, but is essential to becoming all that God intended us to be. Pushing upward toward the Light, we expand anchoring our roots deep into the earth while exploring a brand new world in higher consciousness. It truly is exciting to be alive in Christ. To be open to the infinite possibilities and ready to flow in a totally different and exciting paradigm. To make rivers in the desert or a path in the wilderness, are major transformations. Where there seemed to be no way, one will appear. We only need to trust and let go, knowing that we are in the company of God's loving angels. With the Holy Spirit, we cannot help but succeed.

This morning I watched a flock (over 30 red breasted robins) feeding on the many black berries from the camphor tree. I wondered what the robins symbolized. There were so many.

 In Angel Messages, The Oracles of the Birds, I learned, "The joyful notes of the robin's song signify confiding trust, triumph, and happiness in love, and when it comes to you, as well as these things it brings a merciful burying and laying-to-rest of old problems, old conflicts, old issues, and old selves which need to be declared dead and buried. That your life path is clear for forward movement; the red breasted robin offers itself as a guide, bearing before you a light from the angels to quicken the speed of your journeying soul."

Many blessings to you as you become more than you know.
