The Angels remind us that just because everything seems to be crashing down around us, we’re not required to crash down with it. Each day, we have a choice to gather our internal forces or to shrink in the face of difficulty. Some days, shrinking may truly be the best option. Other days–most days–we can choose to rise in strength.
The Angels remind us that this world needs us, in all our glory, all our shame, all our joys, and all our pain. There is no need to hide behind perfection; we are asked only to come as we are, and give what we can.
The Angels remind us to lean into the little nudges that give us insight into our deeper feelings and the deeper context in situations around us. Our natural receptors are keen, if we observe and trust the information they provide.
What are you purging,
What need not be part of you anymore
That it so forcefully releases
Like fireworks in the night sky
Within the heart of your own being?
What pain can you let go,
What ancient past emerging
Asks not to be still buried
But rather to be free,
Out of the cave of your belly
And into the light to be atoned
Its particles scattering to the Universe
Becoming the fodder for your growth
Instead of caged rebellion,
Becoming the light
Which feeds your soul
