Angels on Your Shoulder

Angels on Your Shoulder


Allowing yourself to be touched by an angel

posted by Susan Gregg

I used to love the TV show Touched by an Angel. When the angels would reveal themselves and talk about god’s love I would often get teary eyed. Many of my readers have expressed the desire to meet an angel in person. I used to feel that way too until I expanded my thoughts about angels.

In the show Tess and Monica looked ‘normal’ until the scene where they revealed themselves and the light show began. When I look back over my life I have to admit that there have been many angels in my life. They just never made the big announcement with light affects!

There have been so many times people have come along just when I needed help. Some were friends and family and some were total strangers. When I first moved to Hawaii money was scarce, I didn’t know many people and I was worried. I took my dog for a walk and an elder oriental woman smiled broadly at me and pointed at a rainbow. Her simple act of kindness made my day and changed my life.

One way to be assured we are surrounded by angles is to be one yourself. I simple smile and sincere, “How are you?” when you are giving the cashier your money goes a long way. Driving ‘aloha’ is another way to show love and kindness. In Hawaii we talk about living aloha which means thinking of others and living lovingly. You can slow and allow drivers in and send love to the person that just cut you off.

The more loving we are the more loved we feel. Be someone else’s angel and see how many angels you meet along the way. By being an angel you can certainly be assured of being touched my one. My favorite Gandhi quote is, “Be the change you wish to see.” So be the angel you wish to meet and see what happens in your life.

With love and aloha,
Susan

    Great post!!! I truly believe in angels. I believe that they are all around us and come to us when we least expect them.

    I always liked that “Touched by an Angel” show too. I believe angels exist too and they are God’s messengers. Never saw one that I recognized as such yet, but that’s okay. I’m sure it would be pretty scary.

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.
