Angels on Your Shoulder

Angels on Your Shoulder


I am off to Lithuania

posted by Susan Gregg

Aloha,

For the past five years, I have gone to Lithuania in September to teach workshops for a month. This year, I am going earlier because Latvia has asked me to come. When they asked me to come the first time, I had no idea where Lithuania was or anything about the people or the country. I just knew they were literally half way around the world from me. I absolutely love going there and have fallen in love with the country and the people.

It takes me a long time to get there. I will leave tonight and won’t get there until Thursday. I learned the hard way to stop half way there and rest. Lithuania was the first country to break away from the Soviet Union. Latvia and Lithuania are the only two Baltic countries that still have their original languages. So what does all this have to do with angels?


The first time I went to Lithuania, I was deeply moved by people’s openness and desire to connect with their spirit. There was one woman who carried a photo of an angel that helped her survive WWII. Over the years, I have brought home many angels that were lovingly given to me, long before I wrote my book on angels.

They are amazing people. When they became independent, their economy was in ruins and they had to reinvent themselves and their country. I have learned so much from watching them change and grow, and I look forward to sharing some of that love and wisdom with you in the coming weeks.

I thought you might like to see some photos of their beautiful country. I will be blogging from there and sharing all the love, magic, and wonder I experience. Just open your hearts and feel the wonder in these photos.

With love and aloha,
Susan

Angels really are on your shoulders, just loving you, now and always!

    Dear Susan, Thank You so much for your kind words about Lithuania. Thank you! You are very Welcome in Lithuania. Best of luck in your life! Please, come to Klaipeda. I am sorry that you were not here for the summer… we had here such a great time… Sea Festival (with Tall Ship’s races ending in Klaipeda) and Europeade in Klaipeda with 4000 people from all over Europe dancing and singing their national songs. It was so nice here and still is – we are looking forward for a great autumn. Samogitia.

    Hope you have a safe journey. Seems like a wonderful destination.

  • Darrin Ingram

    I’ve been there twice myself to work with the teenagers. They truly are amazing people.

  • Susan Gregg

    Aloha Samogitia – I will be close to Klaipeda, I love taking the ferry there. I really love your country and feel honored to work there.
    Terraworks, thanks for your safe wishes and Darrin they really are amazing people!
    I am off to the airport in a few hours and then I begin my journey in earnest. I am looking forward to meeting interesting people and having a wonderful, magical journey.
    Sending you all lots of love and angel hugs,
    Susan

    It’s nice here in Lithuania, but things may have changed since you were last here…
    For instance, the law that criminalizes giving minors information about homosexuality also makes it illegal to tell them about supernatural, paranormal, or even some well-known childrens tales.
    So watch out for the camera people, and the kids who get paid to squeal!

    Aloha Mike,
    That’s interesting. It always amazes me the laws fear causes us human’s to create. Wonder if any day soon we will notice that laws only create law breakers and do little to change people’s behaviors, while love changes everything.
    With a big smile and a tired yawn in the airport,
    Susan

    It’s good to hear that such people do the honors to LT with the visit ;). Would suggest to visit Plateliai town, an ancient Samogitian gem, if you have some time.
    And nevermind those rumours about “that law”, the law is not completed (under the “process”) and nothing is illegal ;)).

  • Susan Gregg

    Thanks for the suggestion. Glad the law is a myth!
    With love and aloha,
    Susan

    Aloha Susan,
    My father is from Lithuania and although I never learned to speak the language myself, it does sound beautiful! I recall going to the American-Lithuanian Club as a child and watching the dancing! My mother was from Guatemala and she met her Lithuanian husband in Memphis, Tennessee. :) She told us a couple stories of angels she had seen that had brought her messages, such as one about my father returning soon from the military when she was in Guatemala expecting my older brother. Anyway, just wanted to share and wish you a safe and wonderful trip to the Baltic countries!
    K:)

    Actually – Estonia declared its independence from the Soviet Union 1 month before Lithuania did.
    Also – Estonia , the third baltic country – HAS kept its language very much alive.

  • Susan Gregg

    Thanks for letting me know – I found the information on the internet but now I know the truth.
    With love and aloha,
    Susan

  • kristiina

    Dear Susan –
    thank you for your precious heart and for your love messages.
    I found your thoughts on how to overcome fear today and it gently guided me to take the path beyond my fear.
    P.S.:
    Lithuania is a real gem. I always enjoy and rejoice in the fact that there are two such heavenly countries next to my homeland.
    You are definitely most welcome to Estonia, our islands are havens of peace (yours is probably a source of vivid life energy=).
    Aitäh Eestist, Tartust (Thank you from Estonia, Tartu).

  • Susan Gregg

    I would love to come and teach classes in your country.
    With love and aloha,
    Susan

    I don’t know if it is accurate to say that Latvia and Lithuania are the only two Baltic countries that still have their original languages. Estonia is also a Baltic country, and they still speak Estonian. But then again, some people consider Estonia more of a Nordic country than a Baltic country, as Estonia is very linguistically and culturally close to Finland. And couldn’t Poland also be considered a Baltic country, one that definitely still speaks its original language?

  • To PhoenixOrion

    Hi. There probably is some confusion among the native english speakers.
    First, there are several countries situated around the Baltic sea. I don’t know if they should be called “Baltic countries”, i’m not a native english-speaker. We do not call so.
    Second, The Balts is the linguistic and ethnic group, sort of. Don’t know how to describe it more precise in english ;). And only Latvia and Lithuania still have their original languages, because Prussians, Curonians and Yotvingians assimilated or ceased to exist.
    Third, ‘The Baltic States’ is an english equivalent of a russian “Pribaltika”, which is a short form of the “Soviet Military District Near the Baltic Sea”, literally. Estonia and Kaliningrad district were the part of it. Finland escaped such fate, more or less. So, now it is sort of a “trade mark”: “three Baltic countries” :) . But only Latvians and Lithuanians are The Balts.
    And Estonia was first, who declared the independence, I’m 100% lithuanian and there’re no discussions among us :) . But i read different information in english language many times :) .
    I’d say that there exist some myths which live their own life in their own reallity ;) .

    Aloha PhoneixOrion,
    I really don’t know which country is Baltic and which one isn’t . I just mistakenly repeated what I read on the internet. I just arrived in Latvia yesterday and it is a beautiful country but then again I have never been to an ugly country. They all have their own unique beauty.
    With love and aloha,
    Susan

I remember playing the game ‘telephone’ as a child. We’d sit in a circle and one person would begin my whispering a story into the next person’s ear. The story would slow travel around the circle. The last person would share the story with the group as then the first person would share.

How do I know if it is the voice of the angels?
I used to drive myself crazy trying to decide if I was listening to my mind of the voice of the angels. The short answer is love, love, love , love. The voice of the divine NEVER judges … NEVER NEVER NEVER. If there is any judgment then it is simple human beings trying to control other hu
