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 have been burning candles years now-i had lost so many family members for they have passed on, I was told by an elder to keep there spirits close burn a candle which i do faithfully-I feel there presences so strongly until I can not be without a candle glowing in my home..i no they are with me,always

    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

Why angels?
People often want to talk to angels, connect with them or be guided by them. Why? I often wonder why angels? My theory is that people are seeking the love. Angels are never judgmental and they radiate love. As human beings we often forget that we live surrounded by love and that at a core leve

How to talk to the angels
I get asked this question all the time. It really is very easy but our minds can make it so much harder. We can doubt what we are hearing or sensing or feeling. You are always surrounded by angels. The moment you ask them for help they are there. The problem is we often don't let the help in.
