Heart of the Soul

Jodi Chapman - AngelsI believe in angels. 

And, as a former skeptic, I realize that this isn’t something that everyone believes in. Sometimes the things that we can’t necessarily see become myths in our minds. Sometimes the things that we have yet to experience stay in the realm of the impossible.

I used to roll my eyes when I heard someone talking about angels. I used to think they were either crazy or hallucinating or wishing on a star somewhere deep within their mind that angels were real. I knew that they weren’t. I knew it with all of my being.

And then, a few years ago, my world began to shift and open. I began to feel angels all around me. I began to open my heart and let love in. I began to experience massive shifts from the very core of my soul all the way out into my cynical brain – I began to see the world through a different lens.

At first, I tried to explain away these angelic experiences to coincidence or just a strange dream or a fluke. Someone would share an angel reading that would be exactly what I needed to hear, and I would think they got lucky. Or I would have a dream with a beautiful angel that felt absolutely real, and I would remind myself that it was just a dream. Or I would hear them in my mind and feel them in my soul – sending love and pushing me forward. Gently asking me to follow my heart. And while I ignored them for years, eventually it was easier to simply let down my walls and believe.

To let them lift me up when I was filled with grief. To let them fill me with lightness and their loving energy – something that I had never felt before. To allow myself to feel it all and to experience it all. I finally got to the point where explaining them away no longer fit – it no longer felt right. And my skeptical beliefs began to shift into simply believing – in angels and in love. 

So now I can honestly say that I believe in angels.

I don’t exactly understand how they are able to be with me. I don’t exactly understand why they chose me and not someone else to hang out with. I don’t exactly know how it’s possible that I can call on them and they will immediately be right next to me. I don’t understand exactly how any of this works.

All I know is that it does. All I know is that I feel their light guiding me and nurturing me and loving me.

And that is enough.

I don’t need to know. I just need to open my heart and continue giving myself permission to hear them – to feel them.

That is enough.

I don’t need to know. I just need to have faith that they know so much more than I do, and that they will show me the way.

That is enough.

I don’t need to know. I just need to soak up their wisdom – to embrace their messages. And to know that they are here with me for a reason.

That is enough.

I don’t need to know anything else. Only how loved I have always been by these beautiful beings who want nothing more than to shine light on me and surround me always with their infinite love. 

That is so much more than enough. It is absolutely everything. 

I believe in angels. I do. I believe that we are all surrounded by them and loved by them all of the time. Every second of every day during our time here on Earth.

I am still learning how amazing this gift truly is. I feel so blessed to have their presence in my life, and I will continue to open up to their love. I would love for each of us to accept this beautiful gift into our hearts and move through this journey knowing that we are never alone – knowing that we are always loved.

Hugs,

Jodi
