Hello, my friends!  Oh, I just love the angels’ sense of proportion and balance.  My last post was a call to bring you out of the depths and now the angels want to invite you back into the depths.

If you’re coming from the Christian tradition, you may be aware that yesterday was Ash Wednesday — the beginning of Lent.  For many people the 40 days and 40 nights of the Lenten season is a time for deep reflection and contemplation.  Some traditions call for a sacrifice to be made — giving up some luxury or pleasure for this time frame.  That’s a step toward purification of body and mind, so that the spirit has a chance to swell and bloom.  Other traditions call for a deeper study of ancient texts or an increase in prayer and meditation.  These are ways to deepen our connection to the divine and to bring Christ into our hearts and souls.

In past years I have found Lent to be a time of significant spiritual awakening.  I come from the Protestant Christian tradition where we take on deeper study or prayer during Lent.  Those times have been very fruitful for me.  Taking on a meditation discipline for 40 straight days can be a challenge, but the challenge we feel is coming from our ego (who doesn’t want us to realize our full relationship with divine, but instead wants to keep us trapped in a power struggle with God).  Once we learn ways to overcome the struggle (or just muscle through it), we come to a place of beautiful peace — a glimpse of heaven on earth.

So the angels ask you to try meditation or prayer — or strengthen your practice.  Meet them in the center of your perception.  Like the spiral (my favorite spiritual symbol) that circles around and around, moving always toward the center, the angels invite you to travel that path of inward movement through deep breathing and visualization until you near the center.  You’ll find them there, waiting for you, loving you each moment.

Sit with them there and drink in their beauty and peace and know that that is who you truly are.  You are beauty and peace.  You are calm and wisdom.  You are generosity and light.  You are in the world but not of it.  You are a child of heaven.

Yes, you are.  You are loved beyond human measure.

In this center space, you may find things that need to be shed from yourself — old worries, false beliefs about yourself, limitations that no longer fit, old grievances that are ready to float on, old grudges that no longer serve anything, other people’s false teachings that you know in your heart aren’t from God.  Release those to the angels.  Just hand them over.  They’ll gather them up and fly them heavenward where they’ll be transformed by the love of God into something of beauty that can bless you.

Sometimes when I’ve worked with clients that image looks like a black box of filth that the angels carry upward.  When they get into the heavenly realms, they open the box and out fly hundreds of butterflies.  It’s a gorgeous sight!  Don’t be afraid to hand over your ick — once the angels and God get a hold of it, it turns into breathtaking beauty!

(That’s how the power of love and forgiveness works — and there will come a time when you will be able to do the very same thing for yourself and for other people!)

As you come back out of the spiral and back into earthly perception, carry these Truths with you throughout your day.  Carry with you the beauty that you are.  Be the beauty.  See the beauty.  Share the beauty.

The angels invite you back into the depths — to share some time with them.  Blessings on your hearts and souls — you are magnificent!

Hi, everyone!  It’s funny, I’m sitting here at my computer, getting ready to write a new post and instead of a topic, the angels gave me the title:  “From Out of The Depths”.  I wonder what they’ll say . . .  [giggle]

The angels say that they know that many of you are feeling like you’re in the depths — they’re saying like in the bottom of a pit or well and it’s feeling dark, damp and very uncomfortable and scary.  They want you to know that they are in there with you.  You’re not alone — you’re not alone in the dark.

Light is brilliantly shining from the angels and is illuminating the space where you are.  It may not seem like it.  It may seem completely dark and lonely to you right now.

They implore you to close your eyes, begin to breath deeply and calmly and to turn your attention inward.  Begin to fold the edges of your conscious perceptive field in and onto itself.  Let it begin to fall into itself.  Feel the sensation of falling (similar to how it feels as you begin to drift off to sleep, but hold onto your consciousness) and then maybe the feeling of rising.

You are in the hands of the divine in each moment of your life.  I love the image of sitting in the palm of God’s hand.  That’s where you are — and your angels surround you in this moment.

Can you find that place within yourself where you recognize this dark, damp pit to be an illusion, like a bad dream?  That you’re really, truly safe, warm and cuddled?  Can you begin to feel the swelling of your heart in recognition of your connection with the divine?

Your angels want to comfort you right now.  They want to guide you up and out of that dark, lonely place.  They want to shine their light on you so you can bask in that warmth and love.  They want to show you your truest essence — love and peace.

They also want you to realize that if this feels like the depths of a “dark night of the soul”, that they can help you with the transformation that comes from a time spent in the desert or in the darkness.  This temporary place of heavy darkness may be instrumental to an opening and expanding of your heart and mind.  It may be extremely healing to your soul (even while it’s challenging).  Remember that after the 40 days in the wilderness, Jesus was attended to by angels — you are too, my friends!  The angels are there to attend to you and this growth that is happening for you.

The surest way out of the depths is go inward, embrace silence and stillness and prepare for the little voice that will call you out.  Expect it, because it will come for you.  That will be your guidance — from your angels or ascended masters.  That will be your pathway out of the depths.

Friends, you are never alone!  The angels say it again and again — you are never alone.  You are never alone.  You are never alone.

They say some of you are hearing this like it’s just a pretty little thing to say, but you’re not letting the Truth and fullness of the message in.  They say your mind is blocking it from reaching your heart where you can emotionally respond to it.

However, they also assure you that when they speak, it’s a message for your heart and soul and although your intellect may judge and reject it, the message still gets through and that’s why the voice is small and quiet — it originates from the heart and soul space.  That is why you must make some time for meditation and contemplation — to gain practice on quieting the mind so you can hear your heart and soul messages.

That and they encourage you to ask for help — to not feel like you must do it all yourselves.  Their purpose and joy it to be of service to humanity and they eagerly wait for our invitation to take part in our lives.

Hear the angels calling you and let them lift you out of the depths and into the light!

Sending out waves of love and comfort from the perspective of the angels.  Oh, my friends, so many of you are in fear!  The feelings of fear have become so commonplace — so comfortable, actually — that you’ve begun to see them as normal.  As a part of you.

Sometimes out of our fear we create these heavy, stone walls around us — to protect us.  From what??  These are not the boundaries I wrote about the other day.  These are fortresses to keep out stuff.  What stuff??

Relationships?  Closeness?  Love?  Realizations of our connectedness with each other?  New thoughts and ideas?  Expanding consciousness?

Oh, friends.  I just had a conversation with someone who is so filled with the fear that she is separate from God — so separate from God that she has to work really hard to find her way back.  But in no way is she separate from the divine — the divine runs through her veins, through her lungs, through her hair on a breezy day.  The divine surrounds her in each moment of her life.

In her desperate striving to connect again with God, she has agreed to live by a very narrow list of “rules” that will take her back.  And, if she can help others adopt that set of rules for themselves, I think she feels it will accelerate her own journey.

With deep compassion and light-filled love my heart connects with hers in a gesture of connectedness.  Poor, dear one — you don’t need to feel like you’re in a dark forest with little hope of seeing the light of day again.  Just open your eyes!  Open your heart!  Your angels are standing right by your side, extending their hands to you to help bring you to a place of beauty and peace.

That’s your Truth, you know.  You are beauty and peace.  Please don’t be afraid.  Don’t be afraid that you’re lost.  Don’t be afraid that you’ll never find your way.  Just sit in silence for a moment and feel the love that is coming to you.  Feel how beautiful heaven thinks you are.  Realize that when you chip away at those things (thoughts, beliefs, fears, memories) that are getting in the way, you will radiate pure love within yourself and outside of yourself for the whole world to see.

And, that would be bringing the Christ who is within, outward onto the earth.

Bless the Christians!  Bless the Hindus!  Bless the Jews!  Bless the Buddhists!  Bless all the paths to the divine!  Bless all who wander and seek!  Bless those that are sitting this one out!

Bless us all!
