Angels on Your Shoulder

Angels on Your Shoulder


Is there anyone else there?

posted by Susan Gregg

Years ago when I began my spiritual journey I had a hard time with the idea of God, surrendering and prayer. I had many long talks with my spiritual mentors. One day a friend told me this story and besides getting a good laugh it helped me see the futility in my resistance to letting go of my limiting beliefs.
A man was walking along a deserted road, against his friends advice. He was new to the area and there had just been a large rainstorm. It was pitch black, he could hardly see his hands in front of his face. Suddenly he slipped in the mud and plummeted off the cliff. He managed to grab onto the exposed root of an old tree and stop his fall.
He held on as long as physically possible. Then in desperation he finally he decided to pray. As soon as he asked for help the wind got quiet and he felt a sense of peace flow over him.
In the silence he heard a voice gently and lovingly say, “Let go.”
He thought about it for a moment and then asked, “Is there anybody else up there?”
In the morning his friends found him exhausted still hanging onto a root a few feet off the ground.
With love and aloha,
Susan

    To let go of doubt and fear is to begin to rediscover what lies beneath the surface of unconditional love.

    Thanks Liara – I like to think of fear as
    false
    evidence
    appearing
    real

Refelctions on the Vietnam War
I was surprised when I was reminded that it was the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. I was in high school when the war started and much of my early life was lived against the back drop of vivid images of the war every night on the evening news. When I was in college the massacre at Kent State

Why angels?
People often want to talk to angels, connect with them or be guided by them. Why? I often wonder why angels? My theory is that people are seeking the love. Angels are never judgmental and they radiate love. As human beings we often forget that we live surrounded by love and that at a core leve

How to talk to the angels
I get asked this question all the time. It really is very easy but our minds can make it so much harder. We can doubt what we are hearing or sensing or feeling. You are always surrounded by angels. The moment you ask them for help they are there. The problem is we often don't let the help in.
