Angelic Atmosphere: An Angel Message

 

Yesterday, 11/28,  around 11:00 a.m. while carrying some items out to the garage, I got one of those angel taps to look up at the sky.

A cloud resembled a profile of an angel with large flowing wings, over the pasture next door.

When I turned around to face the sun, the blue sky was radiant, glowing with feathery rainbow clouds. Rainbow clouds so bright my eyes couldn't look directly at their spectacular beauty.  I ran for my camera; the battery was dead, and quickly replaced it, hoping the celestial phenomena would be waiting.  And it was.





With the camera aimed upward, I snapped away, unable to look at the glaring sun.  In that wonderful moment, it seemed like a glimpse of the bigger picture. A preview of what is yet to be. The atmosphere seemed filled with heavenly help.  A reminder that more is going on than meets our human understanding. A heavenly sign to keep having faith, the best is yet to be.

 

Love and peace,

Have a Grateful Heart: An Angel Message


 Recently I came across an inspirational book at the local flea market in town. Walking with Lincoln, Spiritual Strength from America's Favorite President by Thomas Freiling.  That's where I learned that President Abraham Lincoln issued more proclamations thanking God than any other president. 

He was responsible for setting aside a special day of thanks for our nation.  In the fall of 1863, he established a National Day of Thanksgiving to be celebrated in November, and every president since then has followed his lead. A national day "to render the homage due to the Divine Majesty for the wonderful things he has done in the nation's behalf."  

The author beautifully writes:  Lincoln provides a model for how to walk in gratitude before God.  At all times, for all things, we can give thanks--in the privacy of our hearts and in our public spheres of influence.  We should never forget the Giver of every blessing and the Father of all good things.  Let's remember to be grateful, especially during the difficult times.  We can trust, like Lincoln, that God's higher purposes are being accomplished in our lives and that he will give us the grace and mercy we need." 

Why not take a moment to remember how God has blessed you?

In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Love and peace,

We Deliver For You: An Angel Message

Did you ever wonder how you attract things into your awareness?  You buy a red Volkswagen-Bug, and suddenly you see them everywhere?
 
Years ago, in a government course, Investment in Excellence, I learned the key.  It's the work of a small part of the brain called the Reticular Activating System (R.A.S.)  The RAS works as a filter, allowing those things into your consciousness that mold your reality as you believe it to be, the special interests you currently entertain.

The R.A.S. directs your attention and brings things into your visual range according to your desires.

In 2017, when I took up a fun hobby of exchanging postcards around the world, mail trucks began to pop up wherever I went.  An uncanny postcard would catch my attention in a movie, and a trail of mail memorabilia crossed my path.  My RAS was fully charged to deliver my desires as postcards became a real focus. 
 
On a spontaneous outing in town, yard sale signs led to a detour in search of postcards at an annual church yard sale. No postcards were there, but something better came my way, unexpectedly.   A wintry postal scene,  matted and framed, filled a longing for snowy winter weather, I miss out on in southern living.    
 
 
 I imagined standing in the stillness of quiet drifting snowflakes, gazing at those distant white-capped mountains, and felt such a peace in that moment.  The mail boxes, with a red flag up, and tongues hanging, hungry for mail reflected a touch of humor to a new postal passion.   
 
Four years later, both sending and receiving postcards from around the world still fuels my desire. This year a rare sight appeared at the local gas station on World Postcard Day.  A roundup of US Mail trucks waiting in tandem to fuel up to deliver. 
 
 
 
Whenever I see, "We deliver for you", my thought turns to God's angels; a loving and gentle reminder from our celestial messengers,We Deliver For You.  Don't lose faith.  The best is yet to be.  
 
I'm so thankful for God's  angels who are constantly and selflessly ready to deliver and bless. Our thoughts are energy, (fuel) and where our attention goes, the energy flows, so why not think on the bright side.

Love and joyful blessings,


Rae Karen

Sunday Morning Glory: An Angel Message


This morning hungry birds were waiting by the lake, hoping for a breakfast of cracked corn.  The water- logged grass squished under my feet as I greeted the happy flock.  Muscovy ducks,  Papa and Mama sandhill crane, and mallards.  What joy to find the missing family of six juvenile ducks all present and accounted for since the storm.  

As you can see, the ducky's bright orange beak, with its blue tip, added color to the day.  Ducks are symbolic of emotional healing.  To let our heavy emotions roll off our back, like water on a duck's back...just head for the water, and keep paddling along in peace.

The swollen lake mirrored the sky in the morning sunlight. Native Americans saw a lake as a smile of Great Spirit.  In the Zohar, water is a code word for light.  The lake is abundant with fresh clean water, a renewal of Spirit, a baptism of sorts.

From a distance, I watched a large crane swoop down from the sky, a bird of creation, and creativity. He stood high on the power-line, looking at the sunlit lake. A reminder that all real power comes from above. 

As we sat by the lake, I was cloud-watching, when I looked up higher, a rainbow had appeared. A wonderful sign of God's promise.

I'm thankful for the angels that guide us in all of our ways.  I owe a debt of gratitude to the birds.  They get me out of the house, and feed my heart a dose of nature's beauty and peace to begin each day.  A chance to be spontaneous and expectant of the joyful things of God.

Have a peaceful day, and remember you have a guardian angel by your side.  The best is yet to be.

Love and peace,


Rae Karen

After Nicole: An Angel Message

Before 6:00 a.m. this morning, Elliot took the trash can down the driveway for pick up. The sky was so beautiful, he invited me to step outside and take a look.  I slipped on my shoes and together we stood in the moonlight gazing up at the stars.  The balmy sky revealed a full moon shining over the still pasture.  Above the treetops, a rainbow circled the moon, enhancing her radiant glow.  I watched a veil of wispy clouds swiftly sail across her face, and fade away.  To her left, a tiny star shone bright in the night as if keeping the moon company. Playfully, I wondered if the moon had a guardian angel.   

 I was thankful for the glorious view of the bigger picture.  A welcomed contrast from the stormy, wind-filled skies of Nicole's fury yesterday.  Now, a stillness filled the morning air, as if washed with angels--something sacred and holy was happening before daybreak on 11/11.  

Thank you for your prayers and spiritual support during our second major storm.  Please remember the people living on the East coast beaches in your prayers.  They took a big hit. 

Yesterday morning we found comfort in reading the Nov. 10th message in God Calling for the day. The timing was perfect, and I share it with you to offer encouragement and strength during these times of trouble: 

"REMEMBER that life's difficulties and troubles are not intended to arrest your progress, but to increase your speed.  You must call new forces, new powers into action.  

Whatever it is must be surmounted, overcome.  Remember this.  

It is as a race. Nothing must daunt you.  Do not let a difficulty conquer you. You must conquer it. 

My strength will be there awaiting you. Bring all your thought, all your power, into action.  Nothing is too small to be faced and overcome.  To push small difficulties aside is to be preparing for big troubles. Rise to conquer.  It is the path of victory I would have you tread. There can be no failure with me."

Later this morning, while putting things in order after Nicole, I grabbed the large, heavy Psalm 91 statue tucked away in the garage to move it outdoors again. 

To my surprise, a small gecko poked his head out from under the angel's wing.  Instead of scurrying away like in the past, he rode her wing to freedom. Fearlessly delivered by an angel, he was set free in the sunshine. I realized it was an angel message for me.  Over the last month, the wayward gecko wasn't willing to cooperate whenever a helping hand was offered to set him free.  

Today was effortlessly different.  

The symbolism brought a much needed smile. Psalm 91 helped me find peace in the storm. The angels given charge over us in Psalm 91 are real guardians. It is a powerful psalm of protection and guidance. 

 I recalled a lizard represents letting go of old fear, and also a symbol of dream-time.  With the help of our guardian angel, we, too, may find peace and freedom from fear, and find God's Love in the light of a new day. 

Love and peace,

 

 Rae  Karen

Chance to Change: An Angel Message

It's not everyday an albino squirrel crosses your path.  My son forwarded this picture (sent by his dad) of a white squirrel hanging out in a tree in a Pennsylvania neighborhood.  It seemed like one of those deliberate angel messages.

An on-line search revealed, albino squirrels have been a symbol of peace since the early 14th century.  The rare sighting of a white squirrel symbolizes good luck, and the end of troubled times.  A sign that you have found an aspect of yourself worth exploring.  

It can also be a message from your guardian angel.  A symbol of change and good luck and financial abundance. 

 Although a little topsy-turvey, this precious upside-down albino squirrel clings to the tree. His pose is a deliberate "heads-up".  Sometimes it just takes a small shift in the way we approach a challenge that results in a wonderful and much needed change.

 

The best is yet to be.  

Love and peace,
