This week’s angel and spirit message is about change, renewal, transformations and new beginnings. Life may seem like a whirlwind at the moment, but trust that there is Divine order to your present situation. What may appear as chaos is often angelic forces of the Universe at work. As the storm clears, you will be steered in a new direction-a time of renewed health, joy and abundance. As always-this is a “general” reading and may not apply to all. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
Does it feel like you have been running a marathon and you're about to collapse of exhaustion? Do you feel like life is testing you? Have you been spreading yourself too thin? Have you been denying your own needs and putting others before yourself? Do you overextend yourself? Are you a “giver” but not the best “receiver?” It is time to trust your feelings, especially as they guide you to make positive changes.
Have you been assessing the "cracks" in your foundation? Your work, your relationships and your very being are underwritten by your values, ethics, morals and core beliefs. This is a time when your focus needs to be on the foundations you build your life upon. Perhaps your values have changed and it is time to strengthen your convictions and let go of the things that no longer serve the vision you have for your life. Perhaps you have come to realize there is a situation in your life that is just not right for you anymore. This is a time to remove the “rotten pieces” and reinforce your core moral strength and integrity. Be honest with yourself and with others.
Can you pat yourself on the back? You’ve done a good job assessing thought patterns, habits and situations that are either working or not working in your life. It seems you have taken inventory of situations in your life that are no longer fulfilling. You know what changes need to be made and what relationships you need to release that have served their purpose in your life. You are aware of outdated habits and thought patterns that have been self-sabotaging. Releasing this energy will allow you to put your energy into something that uplifts you-and I think you know where you want to put your energy. You know that now is the time to take positive action and release these patterns/habits/situations. You might need to establish boundaries or re-establish boundaries in your relationships. You may find that there are current relationships that need a little nurturing. Be grateful for all your relationships-for they have given you knowledge, strength and/or support.
Through any change, you might experience emotional and mental upsets. This is temporary and part of the releasing process. You have the right to your feelings even if others disagree with them. Stay mindful and compassionate towards your emotions and thoughts. Pay close attention to your emotions to notice any unwanted patterns in your behavior. If you are about to sabotage yourself, call upon St. Dymphna for immediate assistance. You can release any upsetting emotions to God, Saint Dymphna and the Angels for healing and guidance. Allow yourself to receive support and help from those in your physical environment and those in spirit-God, Angels, Ancestors, etc.
Hang in there, you are making REAL progress in your journey of life. You-have had/are having/will be having-major revelations and epiphanies about what is truly important to you, what your values and core beliefs are. It’s like you are three-quarters of the way through this current movie of your life. Another chapter, another movie is right around the corner offering a new beginning in a certain area or areas of your life.
This is going to be a positive adventure, worth “investing” in yourself. You are at the moment of putting your plan/dream/vision into action. Change is needed and you might feel resistance-this is natural. It is probable that you’d rather stay in the familiar routines of your life; resisting the change. What if you knew-if you proceed in making the necessary changes you know you need-you will succeed? Repeat after me…”Change is necessary, Change is beautiful, Change is good.” This change is a blessing. Consider this time of your life as a beautiful work in progress. You are making changes that will affect everything in a positive way. Your destiny is a remarkable and beautiful work of art.
Change your perspective and look for the hidden blessing in every situation. Proceed confidently with your plan-confidently knowing that you can achieve your heart’s desires. Act with honesty and integrity. Only conduct activities that you believe are right. This is based on no one else’s code of conduct but your own. Engaging in behaviors that you feel guilty and ashamed about erode your self-esteem and self-confidence. Conversely, you feel great about yourself by doing that which you feel is right. Again, this is based on your own moral compass and no one else’s.
Make a commitment to “receive” joyfully for balance in relationships. Let someone “give” to you. Whether it’s a compliment, an offer to help or a gift-accept it joyfully. Know that you deserve “good” and simply say “thank you.”
Life bestows her blessing. She is the wind of change flowing through you and change is your blessing. Don’t try to hold on, no matter how unsettling it may seem for all will magically transform when the time is right. When you look back, you will see only love.
For Integrity-Align your actions so that they match your values and inner knowingness of what is right for you.
Lie down and meditate, allow your mind to daydream and your imagination to roam free. Instruct your mind, heart and soul to show you a mental movie of you living your life at its healthiest and highest levels. Watch this movie and notice how it makes you feel.
Then say “Archangel Michael, I ask that you help me arrange my life and daily activities so I’m fully immersed and engaged in actions that reflect my higher self. Please help me to let go of any behaviors, habits or actions that have engendered guilt or shame in the past-and replace them with actions I feel good about.”
-”Archangel Michael, thank you for tucking me into bed tonight and helping me enjoy a wonderfully restful night’s sleep. I invite you into my dreams as my teacher, guide and healer. Please allow me to understand (specific situation) on a spiritual level and give me guidance.”
-It is safe and comfortable for me to move on. I consider all my options and then take action on my own behalf.
