Angels Speak - Where Do Things Begin?


If you could focus on what changes are happening inside your body right now, you would be amazed and in deep awe of just how perfect that you are.

If you could hear how intelligently your cells talk to one another to keep you together and to keep you healthy by fighting off infections, bacteria, and numerous maladies, you would be more grateful for your body.

If you could see your blood roar through your body at the speed of a raging river, you would laugh and clap at the wildness of the flow.

If you could watch the light that shines within you, you would know that you are perfect.

Buddha Speaks - Powerful Truths



When I think that I have lost my way, I remember that there are truths out there,

Sometimes I find that I search these truths out when no one seems to care.

I wonder where the truths came from – what other world.

Did the Angels bring them here on wings unfurled?

Did those folks that received them just throw the truths away?

Or do the folks who have greed and lust and power have that much sway

To bury all the truths below the layers of empty promises and lies?

Perhaps it is time to change all that and let the lies all cease.

It's time to turn to all the truths and settle on inner peace.

Buddha Speaks - Action


Human beings are creatures of action.  As we move down a spiritual path, we sometimes forget that we still need to do, or to be part of an ongoing action.  It might be raising a family, or being a forest ranger.  It may be that we need to run or to work out.  Whatever action calls to you is the action that you need to honour.  It is a different calling for each of us because we are unique.  And yes, the calling might be similar but it will not be exact.

How do we move through the changes as we get our calls for action?  First, recognize that the call is a blessing.  We may get it early in life or very late.  Some get the calling and ignore it. Second, realize that the call to action may change you, and, it may cause your family and friends to forsake you.  When people say that you have changed, they do not necessarily mean it as a compliment. Third, know that it will take some planning on your part to make the change gracefully.

Angels Speak–Building Strength


The Angels tell us that we change over time.  How that change occurs is your choice.  You can choose to accept and meet the new challenges that show up every day.  A challenge can be something at work, with your family, with a friend, or even with yourself. 

You can choose not to accept the challenges.  As you push away from the challenge, you will find that you have a headache or a pain in your body.  The more you reject the challenges, the more your body will hurt until one day you have a disease. 

The Angels tell us that this too is a challenge, one that you need to face head on, or not. 

Life is about learning to build your character with love, in love with yourself and the rest of creation.

Angels Speak - Do You Want To Change The World?



Changing anything is never easy because we like our habits.  So changing the world is a huge task. 

The Angels say that if you want to change the world, do not ask for permission.  Ask if you need help for some task.  Go out and do the best that you can.  Expect some set backs.  Plan for the big picture. And, do not give up.

Achieve your change in small steps and enjoy life while you are working at the change.

Angels Speak–Endurance


Have you ever had a job that you needed to do, and left it because you were too tired?  I think most people have had that experience.  The Angels tell us that we can ask for help to rejuvenate or to re-energize to finish something.

The Angels directed me to these affirmations that appeared on

  • All the energy I require is mine for the asking.
  • All the positive energies of the universe are flowing through me.
  • All the positive energies of the universe are flowing through me.
  • As I breathe slowly and deeply, I become more relaxed and energized.
  • Being energized is easy when I am living my purpose.
  • Boundless energy infuses my body and soul.
  • Divine energy is flowing through me with every breath I take.
  • Each day I wake up with more energy than the day before.

These may help you when you are bone tired.

Angels Speak - Know Who You Are


The Angels tell us that it is WE who determine what happens in our lives.  We make the choices, we do the work.  Or not.  If we do not put in the effort then nothing happens and nothing changes.  We can always ask for help to get us over a rough patch in our lives but it is still up to each one of us to make the effort.  Chop wood and haul water.  Fire does not happen on its own.  Water does not slack one's thirst without some effort.

Angels Speak–Have You Complicated Your Life?


The discussion was about how busy our lives were and how it was hard to do different things.

Later, the Angels asked why humans made their lives so complicated, and why there was so much drama in their lives.  I thought about it. Here is my list:

  1. Spending time with negative people – friends or family.
  2. Trying to acquire new things – autos, clothes, shoes, etc.
  3. Judging people and trying to change them.
  4. Not communicating clearly with the people that matter to us.
  5. We procrastinate.
  6. Sometimes we are just lazy.
  7. We worry about things that may not happen.
  8. We turn events into drama.
  9. We promise things that we cannot do and then beat ourselves up.
  10. We blame others instead of taking responsibility.

Angels Speak - Do Things


The Angels encourage us to try different things.  Some things we will be good at and other things we may fail at.  Along the way, we learn and we make new neural connections in our brain.  Our body responds differently, and our life force changes.

Trying new things is a way of moving through life with action.  And, it seems we need more action in our lives as we become involved with technology, and become less mobile.

Spirit Animal - Fox On Life



The Fox was moving through the meadow and stopped when it saw me.  Instead of running, it sat down, and it seemed we would have a conversation.  However, I did not do any talking.  Fox had this to say.

-Why is there such a distance between humans and animals?  Do humans not realize that animals are always connected in Nature as are humans?

-Why do humans tear up the meadows and the forests to build wooden homes that are much bigger than is needed?  A den is a place to be safe.

-Why is food becoming more scarce for animals and for people.  Is it because there is no understanding of what it takes to make food?  It takes time to grow what ever it is.

Spirit Animal - Buffalo Speaks


The buffalo herd was resting or grazing in the late summer sun.  There had been lots of rain and the grass was rich.  It will fill them up and add to the fat that the animals will need to get through the winter. 

The sound from a buffalo caught my attention.  Here is what she said:

  • Enjoy the quiet times for they do not last.  Yet they are a time of peace so that our bodies can become balanced. 
  • Take advantage of the good food, and do not indulge in what tastes good but has no value to your body.  When you do this, eventually your body lets you down.
  • Community and comradery keep the herd healthy. 
  • Everyone in the  herd understands that the main goal is to keep the herd fed, watered, and safe.

Angels Speak - Mental Illness


This week, think about all the people that you know that have issues – especially those with mental issues.  It can be depression, Alzheimer's disease,  a form of dementia, manic-depression, bi-polar disease, a head injury of some sort, or any of the many diseases or disorders that are out there.  Know that these folks are ill and need our compassion. 

At the same time that you find compassion for them, if they are in your life, you do need to set boundaries with them about what behavior is acceptable when they are with you, and what behavior is not.  When you find that they are manipulating you by using guilt or emotions, it is time to look at the relationship, and determine if it is worth keeping.  Sometimes, you need to say good bye.  Other times it is manageable.

If the person is a family member, the decision is harder because there is a blood tie that makes one want to help.  Most of us are not trained to help those with mental illness of what ever degree.  We need to find good professional help, and, find a support system or group that can help us through the dark, painful times.

And, always, talk to your angels to make the day brighter!

Angels Speak - Words About Herself



A friend sent me the most wonderful, empowering words written by Judith Kusel, called She Has Come Home To Herself.  You can read it here..

It begins with

She has come home to herself

To ALL of herself: – Her physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and soul self

She nurtures soul, her inner self, and she is intimate with ALL that she is, all which was before and is yet to come.

She embraces her physical body, in its entirety and she refuses to negatively compare herself with others.  She rejoices in the fact that it is…

Read it and enjoy.

August 2016


August always seems to me like the beginning of the end of Summer.  It is sweet because it brings all of the harvest in from the garden.

Here are some important dates in August.

  • August 2 - Leo New Moon
  • August 18 - Aquarius Full Moon
  • Mercury Retrograde - August 30

August is a time of preparing to finish off the old and to go on to the new.

What new will you be working on?
