Angels on Your Shoulder

Angels on Your Shoulder


Allowing the love in

posted by Susan Gregg

Photo_012008_003 My dad has Alzheimer’s and he wants to come live with me. He lived with me for a few months two years ago, he hated it because I wouldn’t let him drive so one day ‘he ran away from home.’ Now he wants to come back and his disease has progressed a lot.

There are all sorts of legal and financial issues involved. I am about to leave for Lithuania for a month and was feeling a bit overwhelmed. Before I went to sleep the other night I prayed, asking all the celestial beings in my book for clarity, direction and help in resolving this situation. To the best of my ability I keep releasing the outcome and simply focus on doing the next indicated step.

I am not sure how it will look but I have no doubt there will be magic and miracles involved. When I was new to all this spiritual stuff some gave me a framed copy of this poem:

LET GO AND LET GOD

As children bring their broken toys with tears for you to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God, because He was my friend.
But then, instead of leaving Him in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help, with ways that were my own.
At last, I snatched them back and cried, “How can you be so slow?”
“My child,” He said, “what could I do? You never did let go.”

So I am practicing letting go and I will see what happens. I am sure the results will be a lot better than if I tried to micro-manage the whole thing!

So if you have a difficulty in your life, let go and allow in all the love and help the universe has to offer.

With love and aloha,
Susan

    All I can say is be nice to your dad. Alzheimer’s is difficult for everyone involved and he didn’t ask for it. It’s a hard decision to make but seeking God’s help is definitely a good course of action.

    Alzheimer’s is an amazing disease. It is like a long good bye. It helps to know that a lot of his angry, rage and frustration is part of the disease.
    I finally gave up on making him happy and realized the best I can do is love him, care for him and keep him safe.

    Hi Susan
    I imagine you are feeling pulled in so many emotional directions right now. A couple of which are probably…”can I handle this?” to “I’m not capable.” All of which are quite normal. Whatever your choice is, it will be the right one of course.
    A suggestion if you do assume responsibility for your father, look into support groups for caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients. Such groups should be able to give you the support you will need as well as offer techniques for managing your father. As you said, there’s certain behavioral changes that goes with this disease. People who have gone through it and is going through it with their loved ones can be of help to you and hopefully make it a little easier to cope.
    Love and many blessings to you

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.
