Angels on Your Shoulder

Angels on Your Shoulder


Prayer and meditation

Aloha everyone,

Words really do have power. When I type the words aloha everyone, I really do send love to each and every one of you who read those words. I just thought I would take a moment to remind you what the word aloha means. It refers to love and the infinite power of your spirit.

In many of my recent posts, I have talked about prayer and meditation and I have received several e-mails asking me to explain the difference, so I thought I would talk a little bit about them. We are always surrounded by angels, we live embraced by their love, and it is only through prayer and meditation that I become aware of their presence.

 


When I first began my spiritual journey, I was told prayer was talking to god while meditation was listening. My favorite prayer is attributed to St. Francis:

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury,pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen

When I began meditating, I would sit quietly, focus my attention on my breathing, and think about the meaning of that prayer. As I slowly thought about the prayer, I would have a feeling of peace and serenity fill me. I would sit quietly, allowing myself to be filled with that feeling. I would breathe in peace and breathe out anything unlike peace.

When I think about being held in the arms of an angel, I feel relaxed, safe, and profoundly loved.  I can also use that as a starting point for a meditation. My favorite way to pray is by writing a letter to god or my favorite angel.

Perhaps try writing a letter or sitting quietly while you read your favorite prayer, and allow the love, peace, and wisdom of the divine fill your being.

With love and aloha,
Susan

There are angels on your shoulder so allow yourself to talk to them and listen to their answers!

    I want to ask for the Holy Spirit to fill my heart with faith and gift to mankind. I want to spend my days giving back to society and to represent God through Jesus Christ. I need angels on my shoulders to do so and I pray this for my family, friends and world. May we all be blessed with such awesome love from our Father.

What do angels know that we don't know?
The main thing angels know that we tend to forget is that this is a safe universe and that we are loved, unconditionally. They know that only the love is real and that everything else is an illusion or delusion created by our filter system: our beliefs, agreements and assumptions. Love, happin

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
