Remember when we ran this Angel Wing contest a few months back? I chose the angel wing theme on purpose because I really wanted to spread a little angelic energy around . I wanted to remind every one of you out there that there are angels everywhere, around us and among us. I was so delighted to read the inscription choices of our 3 winners too, as they were a direct reflection of the whole point of the giveaway. Words like "light" and "clarity, courage and joy".
Words and sentiments like these, provide the catalyst's for the changes we all want so badly to manifest in our lives. Things seem so tricky these days don't they? I've been feeling like Alice lately--everything has been "curiouser and curiouser..." I don't know whether I'm coming or going but that's alright. It's part of my process and it's proving to be a valuable part.
I think it stands true for most people that on one side of the coin, our world seems crazy, dangerous and chaotic but on the other, it's beautiful, peaceful and downright amazing. The main difference really, is in our perception. Did you get that? We create our own reality. When we expect the best, and are able to really see the truth of it all (which is that everything is always perfect (for us)) the world becomes wonderful. It sounds cheesy, I know. But try this; the next time you're stuck for an hour in traffic, instead of making it an irritating experience where you sit in frustration and seethe over the inconvenience, look out the window. Look for hawks or flowers or beautiful cloud formations. Make funny faces at little kids in the cars near you. Turn on the radio and sing. Call someone you've been meaning to connect with for ages and haven't had the time to. Practice watching your breath, are you breathing? Are the breaths big or small? How much time do you allow between breaths? Make the experience a pleasant one instead of the opposite. We completely control our experience. Do we choose bitter or sweet? That is the question.
So, back to the subject of angels. True, we are the masters of our universe but what happens when we simply can't muster up the energy or enthusiasm to catch flies with honey instead of vinegar? We ask for help. When we believe in angels and ask for guidance or wisdom from our higher selves, spirits and guides, we open up a whole new universe of support. Helpers appear out of nowhere. All we have to do is pay attention (reference that whole watching your breath thing because that's how you can train yourself to do that whole paying attention thing) We are all powerful and we are not alone. This is the reason I'm having so much fun with the Angel wings right now. I love the idea of them being out in the world, serving to remind the women who are wearing them that they are supported in manifesting their dreams, wishes and desires.
