Make yourself familiar with the angels
and behold them frequently in spirit;
for without being seen, they are
present with you.
~St Francis De Sales~
I was raised as a Catholic; 12 years of parochial school, church every Sunday, no meat on Fridays, gave up candy for Lent, confessed my sins, feared going to hell . . . I am now an ex-Catholic, but I believe my upbringing in the Catholic church taught me a lot, and for that I am grateful. Although I no longer accept many of the church’s doctrines, I still believe in God (albeit in a different image than the God of my childhood), and trust that my guardian angel and other guardian spirits are watching over me.
Ever felt an angel’s breath in the gentle
breeze? A teardrop in the falling rain?
Hear a whisper amongst the rustling
of leaves? Or been kissed by a lone
snowflake? Nature’s an angel’s
favorite hiding place.
In my early education we studied the archangels and the ones I remember are Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel. I know there are more, but their names escape me now, as does much of what I learned in Catholic school. I am presently taking an e-course called “Michael’s Seven Golden Steps” taught by Mary Soliel. Much of the material in the course are messages channelled from the Archangel Michael. One of seven lessons is delivered to my inbox every Monday morning and I look forward each week to the quiet time when I sit down to read it. I must admit there are times when I have to suspend my disbelief and just keep reading, because there are a few things I have a hard time accepting fully; however, I always come away with a heart wide open, feeling boundless love going both ways – in and out! I also feel closer to my guardian angel who has consistently been with me on my journey, but who I too often neglect. I have the nuns and priests of St. John Nepomuk school to thank for my ongoing relationship with, and trust in, my guardian angel. My friend Susan told me about Mary’s course and at first I wasn’t sure it was for me. However, when I read that the course would, among other things, “help me lead from my heart rather than my brain, dispel negative thinking, embrace rather than fight change and allow the miraculous help being offered by our angels and the Universe to grace our blessed life”, I realized I had nothing to lose and much to gain. So with that information, and the fact that I trust Susan beyond measure, I signed up for the course, and I’m here to tell you it’s worth so much more than the $55 it costs. If you are interested you can find out more about the course at http://marysoliel.com/ecourse_287.html.
If you can’t hear your angels, try
quelling the static of worry.
If trouble hearing Angels song with
thine ears, try listening with thy heart.
We are all kissed by angels but some
of us never think to pucker.
Don’t forget to pucker up and ask your angels for help when you need it!
