Divine Afflatus: An Angel Message

The past few weeks, the word enthusiasm has been a recurring angel thought bubbling up.  The original definition meant "as being filled by divine afflatus (which is to blow upon or toward)."  A little cherub statue is a perfect illustration.  Filled with divine afflatus, he blows a kiss.  

The Greeks spoke of ecstasy meaning to be "out of yourself" and enthusiasm "to be in God".  Happiness is an inside job. 

Enthusiasm is a choice. A decision that we get to do something rather than have to do something.  A simple change in attitude makes a world of difference.  Sometimes it begins by choosing to sing, or dance, break out of the routine.  Reach out to a friend.   Send a card. Paint a picture.  A little willingness to follow your passion as best as you can will help to break out of a slump.
Just by remembering the word enthusiasm, a feeling can stir within; an awakening that bubbles up, adding effervescence to life.   

There is truth to that old saying. "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."   (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
 May your day be filled with an abundance of divine afflatus, filling you up with joy, peace, love, harmony, and good will from your angel to share with the world.  You are never alone. Isn't it wonderful to know you have a guardian angel to accompany you as you go about your day.  Rejoice! The best is yet to be. 

Love and peace,
