Late Sunday afternoon I was sitting on the patio and looking at a rainbow after the hailstorm, wondering, “What is at the end of it.” Without devoting too much energy into this fleeting thought, I went to bed and fell into a deep sleep, and began to dream. And in my dream, I was in Las Vegas. I was wearing a black dress and standing at the craps table, alone, and there was NO ONE in sight. It was just me and the dealer. As the dealer was pushing the dice towards me, I asked, “Where’s everyone.” He looked at me and replied, “You may have to stand alone, but do not be afraid.” I suddenly awoke, but didn’t have the wherewithal to think clearly. In fact, I did my best to fall back asleep. When the 6am alarm chimed, I opened my phone to become consciously aware of the horrendous act of evil that’d consumed human lives, but was also aware of the acts of generous heroism. Pain. Darkness. And Unconditional Love all wrapped up in One. In these circumstances, I'd venture to say, that for the majority of “us”: economic status, social values, whether you pray to God, a Higher Power or nothing at all, it doesn't really matter, because chaos requires your inner Spirit to "step up" despite your PERSONAL beliefs. During moments of devastation, reckoned with the overwhelming state of grief, the ever-evolving world is destined to transform right before your eyes, and your decision to help is based upon your heart's inner calling and your willingness to be of service to others. Regardless of it's rescuing a living creature from the wrath of rising waters, digging trenches, throwing water onto burning timber, or hovering over a stranger and hauling their body to the hospital, God works through all of us; and in ways that you wouldn't have imagined…until the situation presents itself. Your choices matter. So however you’re spiritually, emotionally, physically or financially connected for making a contribution in life: your decisions make a impact on those around you. If you shall ever feel alone in life, you’re not. There are people ( and beyond) who love and care about you. But remember, during intense atrocities ridden with heartache and pain, darkness has the tendency to pervade the soul and drive you towards the feeling of despair, and this is when you behold the opportunity FOR A MIRACLE to occur, from within, as the Divine invites you to “work” against the challenge of fear. YOU are a Divine being, and VERY capable and stronger than any voice feeding any thought of doubt and insecurities. Keep the Faith. You are loved. And you are never alone on this journey. With love, Angela
When you deliberately ask for a “little or a lot” of help from Grace, you’re creating space in your life for the Miraculous to appear. Based upon my extraordinary experiences, when choosing to invite acts of the Divine to orchestrate possibilities beyond your level of thinking, you will be required to suspend all feelings of fear, doubt and disbelief. There isn’t a specific way to ask for Divine guidance. It’s an intimate conversation between you and God that begins within the truth of your heart and manifests itself into tangible evidence—and all in Divine timing. You will also be required to give up the desire to control external circumstances and be willing to discipline yourself to witness Grace in motion. Regardless if your personal preference for calling upon Spiritual assistance is elicited from: God, archangels, guardian angels, spirit guides, or loved ones from the other side, trust the source of healing energy that’s bestowed upon you is a gift from God. NO THING or NO ONE is excluded from Divine healing and guidance, ever, as all forms of creation are significantly held within the arms of which it was created. —————————— Years ago, I had a blue Persian cat named Essa. (Stories about her are also in my book.) She was quite the lady. She was mostly blind and deaf, but loved being pampered; and she was in my life to teach me numerous lessons. Anyway, this story took place over Christmas break. My brother spent the holiday at my house, but when he left to return home, apparently, Essa darted out the door without him noticing. When I came home later that afternoon, Essa was no where to be found. I didn’t have much time to look for her as I was on my lunch break but figured she’d be back that evening because she’d be hungry. Well…that didn’t happen. And after 3 days of looking for her day and night, scouring the streets for her whereabouts I surrendered to the fact that she wasn’t coming home. As I often do, when I find myself stumbling through life seeking answers during times of uncertainly, I sit down and get silent. I know myself well enough to know that I seldom receive solutions to my dilemmas when I work my brain into a frenzy of rational thinking. I allow Wisdom to arise through me as I immerse myself in the feeling of gratitude and surrender to, “Thy will be done,” —-and I follow the instructions that I’m being given as well as utilizing common sense. It was 9pm, and in my last attempt to find her…I decided to do this: Create a “Lost” flyer to paste on the community mailboxes. And while I was busy designing the sign, I remembered I’d read somewhere that if you call upon “the angels” and more specifically, Archangel Raphael (God’s healing messenger for healing and animals) well, anything can happen. Hey! At this point, I had nothing to lose, so asked for Divine help in bringing Essa home. I focused my attention to be open for anything but expect nothing. So after creating my black and white flyer, and with duct tape in hand to make darn sure "my sign" was going to securely stick to the metal mailboxes, I opened the door, took one step, and here comes Essa, nonchalantly walking in like nothing ever happened. My response: Speechless. Dumbfounded. Awe-mazement...as I spoke many words of gratitude for bringing Essa home safely. Angels amongst us…. “You’ll see it when you believe it” ~ Dr. Wayne W. Dyer End of story….
I'm going to address a question that I frequently get asked as this question appears in my inbox at least 3 times per day and during all hours of the night 😬😬😬 The question is--> "How do you write a book?" So here it is! I'm giving you everything that I know about this subject... Which isn't much. So this post will be short and sweet! Writing a book is clearly not my forte but I figured out how to get it done... The hard way!!! (PS.. I'm not recommending this approach 110%😉) But this is how I did it.... Step 1. One day I sat down, opened up my laptop and began typing...knowing that I was NOT going to stop until I was done. I refused to let myself "off the hook." I held myself accountable, everyday. Step 2. When I was finished writing the entire manuscript, I prayed about it, and asked God what to do next. And one night, I got out of bed at 3am and googled various words; including the word "editor." And on page 5 of Google, I found someone who appeared as if he could help me...sent him an email.....and we were a match!! Step 3. Found my cover designer on Craig's list... (I prayed about it first, tho😉) Step 4. Found a local publisher who put all of the "moving parts" together for me. Step 5. Done! I'm off and running That's it!! Like I mentioned earlier, how I completed this project was definitely not the "norm" and possibly not for everyone. You will figure out which way works best for you 😊 In addition, if you're mission is to write your first book, my advice would be to seek out a "writer's coach" and follow a structured path. If they have a proven, successful track record, there is something to be said for that... Listening is good! And finally .... Everyday, someone asks me how I got Dr. Wayne Dyer's endorsement.... And my answer is quite simple. I prayed about it. The wisdom came to me on how to find his address, what to say, and what color of envelope to send it in... And when I dropped my book off at the post office it, I detached from the entire process. And two weeks later, I received an email from Dr. Dyer along with his endorsement, and he told me that when he came to Denver he wanted to meet me in person. That's it!!!! This "entire thing" was Divinely guided. And it wasn't because I knew someone who knew someone, or I bought my way "there". I hope this post was inspiring and maybe even motivated you to "do whatcha gotta do" to make yourself happy. Namaste 😉
