Your angel has always been with you.
I find it comforting to know that I am never really alone. That there is someone with me whose sole purpose is to look out and watch over me.
What's even more astonishing to me is that God decreed that this angel would accompany me through this life, on this journey and that I - as in my soul - is so important to him he did this for me.
Have faith in your angels and communicate with them daily. Ask for their help and assistance at any time.
Remember to always thank them for their help - after all it's only good manners and we like to be thanked when we have done something nice for another.
I find myself in a most beautiful glade. Tall trees surround me, with soft green grass speckled with delicate flowers. It resembles a sway of multicoloured jewels on a carpet of green as they dance in the breeze and glimmer in the light.
Before me is a large tree stump. Something silver attracts my attention on it. I walk towards it.
It's a large silver ornate hand mirror. I pick it up but to my astonishment it doesn't reflect my image. I examine it more closely, front and back. But its surface does not reflect me or my surroundings.
I feel the presence of my Angel near me.
'What is it?' I ask.
'A mirror, of sorts.' she replies.
'I don't understand.'
'The mirror does not reflect you or this place. It is more a portal or viewing mechanism to see through.'
'Where? What can you view through it?' I ask.
'It's simply a mirror to reflect your soul, your true you, dear one.'
'Oh!' I reply in wonder.
'Clear your mind, allow yourself to connect with your Soul. The connection may be difficult at first but with time it will become easier.'
I sit by the tree stump, taking the mirror in both hands, I begin to clear all thoughts from my mind. I close my eyes to concnetrate further.
Slowly i feel myself become lighter. I gently open my eyes and stare into the mirror. The surface begins to ripple and move like waves lapping a delicate shore. The mirror's surface becomes smoother as the rippling continues at the edges. From the shimming surface an image begins to appear.
Love and Strength

We are often told to open our hearts to love and to show love to others especially those who hurt and upset us. This allows us to forgive and move on, opening us up to further love and grace.
Most of the time it is easy to open your heart and shower those you love and the world in the healing glow of your love.
On the other hand there are times when this is the most difficult thing in the world to do. There are days when our loved ones hurt us, either through actions or words and these actions gnaw away at our souls. They pierce a thin membrane and wound us deeply. We are after all human and the fragility of being human can at times make us paper over aches and wounds so we can muster the strength to face another day. Therefore it doesn't take much to peel this fragile layer away and re-expose the wound.
At times like this having strength of the soul can help you to face this wound, take on its pain and see it in the light of day. You can examine why this wound hurts and why are you carrying around this hurt? Every little question you answer and expose can help you to permanently remove these hurts and wounds allowing your strength to overcome and fight on.
To love means you have to be strong, because love has many facets and dimensions, many ways it can be used against you, many ways to hurt and wound you but its greatest treasure is that it can be the answer to all your questions and be the one part of you that you take with you. It never subsides, never dies and never ever leaves you.
Have the strength to love.

This last week I spent quite some time chatting with my Sister on Skype. Nothing fantastic just the usual updates and goings on in the families. To my horror I realised it was almost 3pm and i'd nothing done. We swiftly said our good byes etcs and I rushed about getting some order on my kitchen.
Suddenly I realised i'd forgotten to go to Costco to do a quick stock up and dashed to the car.
As I ran out the door my daughter informed me to go easy as there was road works and at this 'awful' hour it would be a bit manic. Yes the school rush time is the time to avoid the roads if at all possible.
Without thinking I headed off hoping that all would be OK and announcing to my Angels in the back seat - 'Over to you guys' .
I put the radio on, rubbish nothing great to drive to so I had to make do with my hubby's CD of Garth Brooks - not bad; a few sing along types did me fine.
Got to Costco within 35 minutes - a record but not even noticing the time I dashed out of the car and in to the store. Wow I couldn't believe my luck, instead of being thronged with frazzled mums and snarling kids it was almost empty. I dashed around got all my stuff and headed to the checkout in record time.
Only 2 checkouts open and one with some very full trollies so I decided to go to the other. As I approached a member of staff finishing at a nearby checkout said 'Allow me to sort your trolly,' naturally I didn't refuse. And again the other side the same kindly soul filled it again.
I smiled as I left the store only to get a fantastic blast of cold wind and rain in my face. I dashed to the car. Luckily with the boot raised it blocked the advancing downpour and as I reached for the last few items I pondered if I should return the trolley to the trolley bay or the front of the store. I hadn't made up my mind on reaching the last item when from no where a young man, said behind me, 'I'll take that back for you, save you getting wet!" "Thank you, you're very kind," I responded but I doubt he heard as he rushed off - i noticed he wasn't even wearing a jacket as I dashed to the driver door and got in.
"Thank you all," I said as I took a quick moment to thank my Angels.
A short while later I retuned safely home and there waiting for me on the door mat was a pristine white feather.

We are all going along living our lives, day after day. Our priorities change as we get older and our interests and hobbies evolve. No matter who you are, where you live or what you do you have at least one angel with you every second of your life. Some are aware of their angels others are not.
I'm not here to tell everyone they must be communicating with their angels daily. This is their own choice. We all have free will and we can use it anyway we choose.
We are all at different points in our Spiritual Journey and for some this will mean needing to find out more about their Soul, Soul Journey, Spiritual Journey, Inner Self, Inner beliefs etc. The angels have guided me all my life and shown me a different way to others. They guided me to set up this 'blog', my website and other pages on social network sites. This in turn has help others to find a focal point for their journey and clarity on different points and issues. The best advice I can give anyone who is searching is to learn to 'just be'.
To 'Just Be', is difficult, but with practice, meditation as well as listening to your guidance and knowing you too can 'Just Be'. To be present in the moment, to experience every moment for its clarity, beauty and existence is amazing and when you achieve it you too will understand what it fully means.
Please share your moments of clarity, inspiration or beauty with us all, they help us all on our journey too.
