Just before I went to bed last night I wrote a short post about asking to see events through the eyes of the angels. In passing I mentioned the events in Joplin. When events like that happen I watch the news, feel the pain of the people affected and send love knowing the angels are already on the job. I know the shock of losing everything because my senior year in high school our house burned to the ground and we lost everything. Literally, all I had left was the clothes I was wearing.
My dream was one of those dreams where each time I woke up as soon as I went back to sleep I immediately found myself back in the dream. In the dream I experienced the death of my parents again and a whole series of dramatic events. First from a place of loss, anger and fear. Then I began to understand that only their bodies died and I wasn’t really losing anything. It was a powerful reminder. To say the least my dream was emotionally rich.
I grieved the death of my mother even though I knew she would always be there. I grieved, released the emotions and then returned to gratitude, peace and love. In the dream I was reminded not to deny or avoid my feelings. I was reminded to feel them, release them and then reconnect with my spirit.
When I watch images of Joplin I feel sad and powerless, I let those emotion go and then I send a great deal of love and healing to the people there. I know from my own experience their lives can be enriched by the experience or they can spend the rest of their lives angry and bitter.
Each moment of our life is a turning point, one in which we can reach out and deepen our connection with our expansive loving nature or deepen our connection with limiting, fear inducing beliefs. Life is too short to waste on fear and the feeling of separation it engenders. We are all one, we are one with God, we always have been and always will be. We live immersed in a sea of unconditional love.
It doesn’t matter if we are Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, atheist or non-denominational we are all one and we are all going back to that oneness. Any thought that says otherwise is just part of our limiting belief system and causes a perception of separation. The angels reminded me that we have the birthright to live in heaven, right here and now on earth and that the creative force of the universe never punishes anyone. We punish ourselves by thinking thoughts that stop us from feeling that expansive, unconditional love.
Hell only exists only in our minds. It is a creation that is defined by our limiting beliefs. Once you surrender to your spirit you see only the love in everything, even tornadoes. But to get to that point we need to mourn, scream, yell, do whatever we need to do until we are once again quiet enough to hear the loving voice of our spirit.
It was quite a dream. Tonight, here in Tokyo I get to speak to a group of people that have just been through incredible loss and hopefully help them begin the healing process. Life is such a wonderful adventure and when we remember to keep returning to the untarnished, expansive connection to our spirit we can see the perfection, love and expansion in every moment and event life holds. It really is all perfect.
I send my love and prayers to anyone who has suffered loss, especially the loss of their profound connection to the unconditional love of the creator.
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!
