Aloha to each and everyone of you,
A big Mahalo (thank you in Hawaiian) to everyone that sent me birthday wishes. People often ask me how to connect with angels, so I thought I would share the story of my birthday hike to the lake at the top of Mauna Kea and how the angels let me know they were there.
I find working with angels is often a practice of patience, expanded awareness, and paying attention to the details. None of which were one of my talents when I began.
I travel a great deal, taking people to sacred sites around the world. About six months ago, I was driving out toward the highway wondering where in the world I wanted to be for my 60th birthday. Mauna Kea is usually shrouded in clouds and is only visible from one place on my road. As I was driving, I looked up and there was Mauna Kea in all her beauty, with a cloud that looked just like an okay sign. Had I not been looking, I would have missed the message. I had a good chuckle and knew where I would be on my 60th birthday.
So, yesterday morning I took my journal and set off for Mauna Kea. At the 9,000 foot marker, I sat at a picnic table and wrote two letters. One was of all the things I wanted to let go of this year, and the other what I would like to create. Then I began the long drive to Lake Waiau, one of the highest lakes in the US, at 13020 ft (3,969m).
As I was hiking up, I began talking to God, the angels, and anyone else who was listening. I began praying out loud and talking about what I wanted to release. I looked up, and in a sky devoid of any clouds, there was a cloud directly ahead of me that looked just like an angel. As I repeated my list, the cloud began to fade. One piece remained, so I asked what else I needed to release. I heard ‘all doubt,’ so I spoke that out loud, and the cloud disappeared completely.
I walked over to the edge of the lake and dipped my letter of ’what I wanted to create’ into the water and then sat on a rock and read my letter out loud. Slowly, a cloud began to appear. At first it looked like a bird, then an angel, and by the time I finished my list, it looked like a large heart, and I felt filled with love.
Had I not paid attention, I would have missed the clouds. Were they signs from the angels? Perhaps not, but to my they were, and they filled my heart with joy. I have been reading the Tao lately and I was reminded that, “Seeing the small is clarity and remaining flexible is strength.”
So if you want to experience a more direct connection with your angels, be open to the signs and remain flexible. They are always there, just a thought away.
With love and laughter,
Angels are everywhere if we open our eyes to see.
