So what is joy?

One of the things we often forget is joy is an inside job. Our thoughts are what create our emotions. I know that is a hard concept to swallow but it is true none the less.

That said, how do you personally define joy?
What does joy feel like?
What does joy look like in your life?

Now, ask the angels to help you create a joyous life. They will if you are allow them to and listen to the voice of love.

1. Ask the angels to surround you with their love.

Use your imagination. Imagine yourself being embraced by an angel. Feel her wings wrapped around you, breathe in love and let go of anything unlike love. As you move through your day imagine angels walking along side of you, surrounding you, protecting you and just loving you.

How would you feel if you were constantly surrounded by a group of loving friends? Feel it now.

2. Ask the angels to guide you.

When you have a decision to make ask the angels to guide your thinking. Ask for their help in making the most expansive and loving choice. Before you decide imagine the result of each choice, how does each choice feel in your heart of hearts. The angels will help you decide, if you let them.

3. Say a prayer each morning, asking for the guidance and love of the angels.

You have to give the angelic realms permission to help before they can help. God after all gave us all free will. So start your day by asking.

4. Ask the angels to help you see the world through their eyes.

When we see the world through the eyes of love judgment falls away and we see love everywhere. Only the love is real, all else is caused by the illusion that we can ever be separate from our spirit or the divine forces of creation. Each breath is a gift of life and when we see through the eyes of love joy abounds.

5. Give thanks for all the blessings in your life and ask the angels how you can be of service today.

When we give freely we are truly able to receive. Don’t be afraid to complain and whine, rage and shout. Get it out of your system, give all your angst to the angels and the let it go. Shift into gratitude, even if you are just grateful the angels will listen while you vent. Then ask how you can help. How can you be of service to another even if first you have to ask for the willingness to open your heart enough to want to be of service.

The angels are your friends. The most loving, accepting and helpful friends you could ever have. Treat them that way, let them fully into your life and allow them to teach you the way of love. You’ll be amazed at what will happen to your life.
