As the media keeps labeling today as Black Friday I certainly don’t have images of happy shoppers and retailers. For me it’s a time to avoid the malls and enjoying relaxing at home. I am not fond of trying to find parking or jostling with crowds.
When I had my stained glass studio I would spend months gearing up for the holiday season, making lots of small panels and terrariums and stained glass angels. I am glad I am no longer in the retail business, but oddly enough I am still in the angel business.
Every Christmas I was always disappointed that I didn’t make more of one thing and less of another and sales were usually less than I hoped because back then I lived in a fearful universe. Fear always prevents us from being in the moment.
One of the most important questions I ever pondered was, “Is this a safe universe or a hostile one?” I started out living in a fear based world but then as I deepened my connection with my soul and my spirit that changed. The more I was open to the presence of angels and willing to follow the directions of my spirit I realized that this is a totally safe universe. Sure my body can get bent and mutilated but I am not my body I am the spirit that resides within it.
When I was pondering this question one of my mentors said to me, “God either is or isn’t. There are no other choices.” God, that energy of creation is infinite, eternal and immortal, it knows no bounds so how could I be anything but safe?
So next time you are afraid, take a deep breath and remember you are safe, you are loved and you are lovable.
With love and aloha,
Angels are everywhere just open your mind and your heart to the signs.
Make Angels on Your Shoulder part of your daily routine and share it with a friend!
