Just Wing It!: An Angel Exercise

I believe the angels inspired my friend with a joyful way to deal with customers in  her store.  Whenever she encountered a grumpy person rather than react, she imagined herself pasting big angel wings on that person's back.  Whenever  she remembered to wing it, there was an uplifting shift in their interaction.   "After all, it's hard to be upset when you're pasting on wings,"  she told me. "Some wings fall off and must be rehung." With a smile, she confessed, "It's much more difficult to paste angel wings on myself."

Our women's spiritual study group practiced seeing fluffy large wings on everyone for a week. What fun to imagine throngs of angel wings among us. A strange thing happened as I pictured myself with white wings while pasting feathery plumage on someone. I felt a little zssst like an angel buzz.  I found myself taking things more lightly that day when I winged it.

Love and blessings,
