The Angels remind us that there will always be naysayers who spend their energy criticizing the work of others. Though disheartening, we need this balance. We can be open to their message, hold onto any nuggets of insight they share, and keep moving forward anyway, with new wisdom and inner strength.

The Angels remind us that when we feel small, we can remember that we both exist within this vast universe, and that the universe also exists within us, connecting each of us through the powers of creation, light, and innate wisdom.
The Angels remind us to let our minds got to the places that frighten us most, those places deep inside that we pretend don’t exist. There, we find a well of wisdom and knowledge, just waiting to be shared.
The Angels want us to know that all they have to tell us is already in our hearts, embedded in our souls. We don’t get new information, only reminders of what we already carry within us, ageless wisdom and endless grace.
The Angels want us to trust what is coming from the heart. Inner guidance resides in the heart center. They ask that we put aside the process of thinking so much and allow the heart to speak. Listen to its wisdom, then let the mind carry out the heart’s desires. The mind is the vehicle, while the heart is the North Star.
When we plant the seeds of wisdom
We grow with the truth inside
Connected to all that is
Fear cannot overtake the truth
Hidden deep within
On the surface
Etched in stone
Carved into the essence of all that is
True wisdom lies in the willingness to let go
Faith in a path laid out in lifetimes past
A compass for life
Now reflected in the light
A path to follow to the light of all that is
The Angels remind us not to second-guess ourselves so much. Some decisions may lead to unpleasant outcomes, yet any decision we make is an opportunity for wisdom and growth.
In this life, the walls created
Promise to provide shelter,
Protection from the greatest storms,
The wildest, rockiest intrusions man can concoct
And they do—
Shuttered up tightly, my walls guarded me
Each day and night so that nothing unwanted
Or unpleasant was granted willing entrance
This didn’t stop the storms from rattling at the doors
And breaking out the glass,
Ripping from the roof and foundation fragments of debris,
And still, I all but disappeared behind my fortress
And the voices, pleasant and gentle, whispered,
“Let me in”
Promising joy and thrills not found in safe places

We all want to be seen for the magnificence and wisdom we carry deep within. We wait for others to acknowledge this about us, to find this inner jewel as if we didn’t know for ourselves that it existed. But if we’re really honest, we know. And we don’t have to wait for someone else to acknowledge it. We can live now as if we really believe we are magnificent and wise, because we ARE. And we can lift up others in the same way.
Majestic old man
Sits in the corner
Silently he watches
Then strolls wordlessly away
What does he think of me?
What advice can he share?
Like autumn leaves falling from the trees
Silently he speaks about the cycles that guide us
His eyes, wise and sad
His words, symbolic
And with one flash of greatness
