It wasn’t about YOU: An Inspired Conversation with God

Today’s Inspirational Message

As I was headed on my way out the door this morning to a martial arts class taught by the amazing and extremely talented Theresa Byrne and Chris Natske, I encountered a brief conversation with God.

———————————————————

God: Take your headphones with you.

Me: No. I don’t have time to look for them.

I leave the house.

And as I’m backing out of my driveway…

God: Go get the headphones, now.

Me: Ok, fine.

Following my instructions, I ran back into the house and grabbed my headphones. (I have a few pairs)

Went to my awesome class and learned some pretty cool moves …

And then….

Went to visit Trigger …

So there is a 14-yr old girl who helps care for the horses ….and she has a piece of my heart. She’s had it a little “rough” in life, in and out of foster homes, so whenever I have the opportunity to say something that can either inspire, teach or maybe just an ear to listen, I’m there. I make it a point to tell her that horses are awesome communicators and will give great advice if she can listen to the whispers. I also mentioned once that if she’s having a hard day, to sit with the horses and just begin talking about whatever is on her mind.
So today when I saw her she said, “I sat with Harley (sick horse) yesterday for about 30 minutes and we talked about the pros and cons of life.” (Mind you, Harley was set to be euthanized a few days ago; but somehow, someway that didn’t happen and is making a full recovery)

Me: “Cool. Have you ever watched horses communicate within the herd?”

Her: “No. I don’t know how. No one has ever taught me.”

Me: “Well, I can share with you what I know but also watch utube. Sometimes you can get great information.”

Her: “My headphones broke.”

Me: “Here you go… take these.”

So on my way home:

God: It wasn’t about you. It’s about being there for someone else.

Me: Got it.

Namaste:)

The advice I was given when having a Conversation with God–“Turn on the Light”

Last week I was invited to speak at a private healing retreat to give an “In-Spirit-ational” talk and teach a half-day workshop. As I prepared to share an array of pragmatic skills and/or techniques I’ve acquired from studying with gurus from around the world; I also have a clear understanding that often times during a conversation, I’ll be inspired to contribute a story about my “Extra-ordinary” teachings that have provided me with valuable insights.

During the lecture, one of the participants stood up to ask the question, “Why can’t I change my life? I’ve hired the best coaches. I’ve read all the best spiritual books. I’ve tried positive thinking but nothing works! I’m out of hope. My business sucks, my marriage is over, and to top it off, I crashed my motorcycle last week. So what can I do to fix my life??”

In that moment, it was clear to me that this man was experiencing a tremendous amount of pain while also knowing he was in the midst of a personal transformation. Whether he wanted to face this cold reality or not, he was being given the Divine opportunity to master inner aspects of himself that were manifesting in his external world. This was his golden opportunity to “dig” deep into the vastness of his heart and to willingly grow as a spiritual being having a human experience, and heal his life from the inside out.

I could feel this man’s angst. I know because I’ve been there, too. There was a time when my life was a complete train wreck and there wasn’t anything comfortable about feeling uncomfortable in my own skin. But in retrospect, this was the “perfect storm” to become aware of the choices I was consciously or unconsciously creating. These were the moments to get brutally honest with myself, my life, and build an unwavering relationship with the Truth.

But before I responded to him, I took a deep breath, made eye contact and said, “You might want to sit down for this. I have an “out-of-the-box” encounter that I’d like to share you. Are you willing to have an open mind and listen?” He nodded yes and proceeded to sit.

I then said, “I may not have your answer but what I do know is this: When your life is no longer working for you, beating yourself up or pointing fingers ridden with guilt, anger and resentment is NEVER the answer. But what WILL raise you out of this conundrum is to add more “Light” to your unanswered questions and greatest fears.  In fact, add more authenticity. More integrity. More Unconditional Love. Add more God into everything. Choosing to pour these essential ingredients into your life will energetically shift the frequency of who and what you attract; therefore, changing the quality of your daily experiences.

****And… I would like to share with you a personal, mystical experience that was my “wake-up” call into knowing this.  During one of the darkest moments in my life, literally, I spent more time ruminating in fear and in victim mode than I did dwelling in Love and gratitude—-and my attitude was about to get an “Inspired” adjustment.****

This happened one morning while I sitting at the foot of my bed having one of my many conversations with God…. (Yes, I talk to God, all day, everyday)

God: Are you going to open the curtains this morning?

Me: Nope. I’m going to choose to sit in the dark.

God: Are you sure?

Me: Yes.

End of conversation.

I then stood up, took a shower, got dressed, walked down the stairs and out the front door.

—————————————————————-

8pm that evening:

I arrived at home after a long day of running in circles being a “chaotic busy body.” As I ventured up the stairs and into my bedroom, right before my eyes was an “Awe-inspiring Ta-Da” moment! Every light was turned on full-blast and beaming towards the middle of the room. Yes, I know, sounds crazy, huh? But God stopped me dead in my tracks and humbled me like no other.

Me: (In my best grumpy voice) “Really? What is this about?”

God: “We thought we would add light to your situation.”

End of story.”

This Magnificent experience was a game changer for me because I was being forced to shift my way of thinking, followed up with mindful actions. My given challenge was to shed more light where there was a shadow of a doubt. Period.

——————————————————————————

After I shared this story in the workshop, of course, there were a few participants who looked at me with a stare of disbelief; but then there were those who didn’t. The Light turned on.

As my mentor once told me, “Thank God for those of us who are cracked because we are the ones who let the Light in.”

Namaste,

Angela

P. S. If you should ever find yourself sitting in a room full of darkness, the answer is: Turn on the Light. 🙂

Love never Dies: How our Loved ones Connect with us from the other side

** IN-Spirit-ational Story**

While I was on my walk this morning, the thought occurred to ask permission from a dear friend if it was okay with her if I shared her story on my FB page in a public forum. And her response, verbatim, “Absolutely ok with me!!!! I know how difficult this journey is so if it helps someone else…that is a gift that I can share.”

So my intention is that this experience may offer a sense of peace and solitude for those who may need healing and hope … along with the understanding that it may also “ruffle a few tail-feathers” and challenge particular belief systems. Either way, I trust in Divine timing and know that NO ONE is ever alone on this journey. With respect, Angela

A few months ago, *Mary’s 30 year old son suddenly passed away, in which, led her into my office for additional insight on death and transformation. Mary also wanted to know if her son was “ok” and mentioned that she would be traveling to spread his ashes over this past weekend (didn’t tell me where) and wanted to know if he would give her a sign that he was present. And my response was, “Yes. You will see a starfish with 3 rhinestones. He wants you to know that he is happy, healthy and is surrounded by Unconditional Love. All is well.” Moments later, she left my office …..

The following day she sent me this picture and message via text…..(photo available on my Facebook page)

“A beautiful day. *Michael was here as we celebrated. Within minutes of stepping off the plane I spotted the starfish!!!! As you said! Three rhinestones. We shared, cried and laughed. Michael is happy. Michael is home. You have helped me so much.”

Love never dies; it only transforms. Everyone, whether you are aware of it or not, is on a path to discover who you are at the core of your Being. Trust in the process and connect to the Source from which you were created. YOU are a Divine creation and the power to change your life is only a breath away….

Namaste 🙂
