Sometimes the ghosts from our past stop us from experiencing happiness in the present moment. Ironically angels are always present whether it is in the past, present or future. All we need to do is open our minds and our hearts to their presence. They can help us release the past and be more present in the moment.

Almost daily I get e mails from people that start out by telling me about the past and then go on to tell me why they aren’t happy or why their lives aren’t working today, in the present moment. For years I did the same thing. I kept telling the story of the past and using it as an excuse for the choices I was making in the present moment. As I began to embrace my spiritual path I began to change my story.


When I saw the past through the eyes of judgment and fear I had a very different story about my childhood. As I began to see the world through the eyes of love where before I saw abuse I began to feel the loving presence of angels and I could see love instead of fear.

Believe it or not it is never too late to have a happy childhood or a friendly divorce. That seems like a lot to swallow but it makes life so much nicer when we are willing let go of the past. After spending sometime working with the angelic realms on forgiveness I was able to revisit images from the past and see things differently. I remember one time in particular when I felt very judged by my mother. After working with the angels I was able to see the love in her eyes and understand that she was just trying to help me.

Spend some time talking with the angels, ask them for the willingness to be willing to see the past differently. Ask for help in seeing the perfection of all the events in your life and see what happens.

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!
