I find symbolism to be very powerful. I have been getting lots of e-mails from people who are in distress over the economy, who are looking for jobs, and who are just feeling anxious and alone. When I was meditating this morning, I remembered about posting about my angel box. What a wonderful way to engage your heart, mind and spirit.

When I first began my spiritual journey, a friend suggested I create an angel box or God box. At first I used a manila envelope. I wrote ANGEL BUSINESS on the front of the envelope and put it in my closet. Whenever I was afraid or worried about something, I’d write a short description of the problem and put it in the envelope, trusting the angels would take care of it.

At first, the trust part was a problem for me. I didn’t have faith in anything or anyone. But, as the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding. It worked. I began to find solutions to problems I never would have thought of, I even took an angel with me on a job interview and I got the job. Magic started occurring.

So I found a pretty box, decorated it, and put a prayer or invocation on the lid. I would read the prayer every time I put something in the box.

I place this issue in your capable hands. I know you have a far more expansive and loving vision for my life than I do. I humbly ask for your help and the willingness to totally release all of my cares and concerns about this issue.I ask for the willingness, courage, and strength to take all the necessary actions. May my heart and my mind be open to your loving guidance.I give thanks in advance for the miracles I know will occur.

The other thing I did was create a bill box. I decorated it with angels and images that reminded me to be grateful. I put it on my desk where I could see it, and every time I looked at it, I gave thanks for the opportunity to pay my bills. It made a big difference in my life.

I never took a picture of my angel box, but I can still see it clearly. I hope you enjoy creating one of your own. Feel free to share about your miracles in the comment box.

Calling the angels into your home

With love and aloha,

Angels are dream weavers and miracle workers and they are sitting on your shoulders.

Make Angels on Your Shoulder part of your daily routine and share it with a friend!
