Angels on Your Shoulder
December 2009 Archives

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. One was love the other two wealth and success.

As a little girl I remember wondering if angels ever were afraid. My mom assured me they always felt safe so I wanted to be an angel.

I love this time of year with all the beautiful decorations and the idea of peace on earth, goodwill toward all. That would be the best Christmas present ever!

I went through my angel book and found some angels that will help you enjoy the holidays more thoroughly, no matter how you feel about this time of year. I think of angels as old friends so I’d like to introduce you to a few friends that may be new to you.

The holidays in and of themselves create neither joy nor sadness, they are emotionally neutral. The holidays are an event, then we tell ourselves a story about the holidays and then we create our emotional response based on that story.

I recently released a new meditation CD done in collaboration with an incredible composer Devakant. He actually composed the music specifically for each meditation. To say the CD is awesome would be an incredible understatement.

As the days grow shorter here in the Northern Hemisphere our bodies seem to want to curl up in a ball and hibernate. Most of the major religions and earth based spiritual traditions see this as a time of rededication and new beginnings.

As I thought about my Fearless Fridays post I was reminded that faith really can erase all of our fears. As one of my mentors reminded me one day years ago, angels either are or they aren’t

Over the next few weeks I will be writing a series of posts to help put joy back in the holiday season, relieve stress and just help everyone have an angel filled, magical holiday season.

Depression and the holidays often go hand and hand for some people. Joy to the world seems allusive at best so how can angels help?
