Angels on Your Shoulder

Angels on Your Shoulder


Angels, candles and prayer

posted by Susan Gregg

Thumbnail image for candle in hand.jpgI love the gentle flicker of candle light. Even though I wasn’t raised Catholic I have always loved going into old churches and Cathedrals to light a candle. Often when I want to pray I will light a candle on my altar first. When someone is going through a tough time and they ask me to pray for them I will light a candle as I say my prayer and then allow the candle to burn out on its own.

Angels are often pictured with a gentle candle like glow around them.  When I think of their loving touch in my life I certainly think of the warmth of candles. I find lighting a candle a wonderfu lway to call upon the angels.



Often in the Hispanic section of the grocery store they will sell candles in glass jars with a picture of a guardian angel on them. Perhaps find a special candle, say a prayer and invite the angels to bathe you with their love. Allow the light from the candle to symbolize their love and spend a few minutes filling your heart and your mind with that light.

Blessed be!

With love and aloha,
Susan

Angels are everywhere just open your mind and your heart to the signs.

    I agree with Charlotte. I have lost my spouse at a young age with children who were young at the time. Now my eldest who is an adult is taking his anger out at myself and his sibling brother who is younger . And advising my daughter his sister that its ok to do things that are not proper to do for a young girl who is about to turn 19 and has adopted his attitude. They are all treating me as not a parent but as there child. I have prayed and prayed for help it seems All my prayers are not working I need help in this. If everyone can pray for all my children. Mark, John and Lauren and now my granddaughter Autumn. I have a spiritual things happen. The night after he died he came back and gave me a kiss on the back of my neck to let me know he was ok. I think of that day often.

    I agree Dolly, those who have passed on haven’t truly died they are still very much with us just in another form.
    Sara, I am sorry you are having such a hard time with your children. Oddly enough watching a show about dogs has taught me a lot about improving the quality of human relationships. I love watching the Dog Whisperer. He talks about being a pack leader and as he says he trains people and rehabilitates dogs.
    Perhaps trying watching a few episodes and see what happens. I will also put you in my prayers.
    With love and aloha,
    Susan

Stories
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
