One of the most powerful messages coming out of the USA this week was, for me, from Hilary Clinton in her concession speech when she addressed her followers the morning after her defeat in the race to the White House. She said: ” This loss hurts, but please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.”
Whatever your political views, and whether or not you believe the best man won America needs your Light and your prayers now. The world needs all our Light and our prayers. I, like many others had been watching the run up to the presidential election with disgust at the behaviour and some of the language of Donald Trump, and praying and asking for ‘the best possible outcome for the highest good”. Many spiritual leaders including James Twyman, who wrote in his newsletter today that he had prayed for the same, have put out messages that we have to trust that there is indeed a higher plan at work. That something really good, and surprising, will come out as a result of this situation.
This is a message urging you to open your heart, let harsh judgements turn into blessings, do not allow disillusionment to cast shadows on your enthusiasm for life, and never ever give fear a way in. Don’t let anyone suppress your passion to fight for a good cause, or to stand up for those who have no voice.
My father once told me that working with angels need not ‘make you soft’ … when you think of angels think of the power of the Light surrounding them that reflects power, light and love. And if ever you are scared, think big! After all there is nothing stronger or more awesome than the powerful presence of Archangel Michael.
I am calling on all you wonderful Earth Angels and Light Workers out there reading this. You all know who you are. If you have been waiting to find your purpose, this is it. Now is the time to believe in yourself as a beautiful being of powerful light, and shine it with all your might. Everything you have learned about working with the angels needs to come bubbling to the surface now as you gain confidence in saying what you know to be right, standing up for high standards of fair play, and share love and kindness in thoughts, words, and actions. Lets all put love into action and watch it spread.
I’m determined more than ever to put what I understand into practice and I hope you will share that passion too.
We are all attracted to light in its many forms. The sunlight, the light from a house window, bright shop-windows in a winter high street, and what about the ‘lightness’ in humour, and a ‘light-handed’ manner which we find so charming. What is the most attractive aspect of the human face? For me it is definitely the sparkle in someone’s eyes. Don’t we just melt as a baby’s eyes light up when it giggles and coos? That light in the eyes, which is said to reflect the human soul.
As I’ve probably mentioned many times before, when I was a little girl one of my favourite Sunday School songs was ‘Jesus wants me for a sunbeam’, and I would sing it at the top of my voice. Now for almost twenty years my website has been called AngelLight, and my next book is to be called Seven Steps into the Angel’s Light.
For ever and ever I have had a deep knowing that we are beings of ‘Light’, pure spiritual energy, having a down to earth human experience. By that I mean that we are sparks of the one Divine Light. Tiny aspects of the God-Source, the one loving and magnificent, all-knowing Creator.
Science has proven that light is the fastest moving energy in the Universe. So, for me, and many more like me, who are teaching about energy and the relationship between physical and spiritual energies I am delighted that so many more people are starting to ‘get it’.
The point is that we are talking about not just the light we see by and take for granted, but Light, the Divine intelligence that is in all things. Light is in the foundation of all form in the universe, Light is life in all things, the centre of all things, and in each and every one of us. When we are living within the source of light, there can be no darkness. When we are seeing through the eyes of love, there can be no judgement, no criticism and no condemnation, we are then living in the light.
It’s my passion to ignite the spark of Light within hearts which may for whatever reason have lost their shine. Like most people I’ve experienced my own shadows and know what heart-ache feels like. During my re-emergence from a deep ‘dark night of the soul’ I was lucky to find a teacher who mentored me without judgement. Two of the first books I was recommended to as I re-entered my spiritual life quest in my thirties were: Living in the Light, by Shakti Garwain, and The Awakener, by Sandy Stevenson. Both of these books certainly re-ignited the light within my soul. They spoke to my heart. Then I found more and more books, and courses, that reminded me of the beings of Light we know as angels and archangels. Now I’m teaching people how to re-connect to these energies for themselves. There are many shadows cast as our own light becomes brighter. And just like like a giant ocean wave we surf that tide of enlightenment with its many energetic sensations, and its highs and lows. But ultimately, our goal is to become pure light once again. Living a life where there is only pure love, no darkness no condemnation, no judgement.Read More
As Raphael is said to be the ruling angel of the planet Venus I thought it would be a good idea to choose this Archangel to talk about during the Zodiac sign of Libra. He is closely associated with the energy of universal love and healing, and has become the one angel to whom many of us turn for all levels of healing – from personal to planetary. One of the magnificent seven Archangels of the Presence of God – and well known as one of the four Archangels of the directions who watch over the whole of creation. The most well known symbol of Raphael is a caduceus which is a staff entwined by two snakes, and this is still used as a traditional symbol in medicinal sciences.
Raphael is also closely linked to the science behind all the healing arts and his service to humanity is to lead the medical professions and other healers by radiating his powerful loving light through them.
All names carry a vibration which we human beings need to intellectualise and turn into meaning. If we consider just for a moment what Raphael means “God has healed” we can see that the vibration of healing from this wonderful archangel energy is instant. It doesn’t mean God will heal , but God has healed . We ask for healing, we bathe in the energy of the name in our meditation – have faith – and we are made whole. Just like the Biblical miracles where Jesus the Master of healing told people that their faith had healed them. For some of us that is a huge leap isn’t it? Our imperfections and our ailments have become part of our story.To become whole, or healed, needs a completely new script.
Many of us have to contend with physical, emotional or psychological pain at some time in the course of our life. Working with the powerful God-force of this angel can help by attracting and channelling healing energy through our being. Raphael can also bring relief from stress and anxiety. Working on many levels, both physical and psychological he is able to help a persistent pain to lessen or disappear, or enable us to see an emotional problem in a clearer light.
Visualise Raphael’s green light enfolding you. Ask him to grace you with the energies of healing with this affirmation: “Raphael, I am transformed and healed as I recognise my connection with the Divine”.
Linking back to the connection between Raphael and Venus the Planet of Love, here is a lovely meditation for you to try:
“Exercise for Sharing and Attracting Love”
As we know, like attracts like. To bring more of something we need to give it out as much as we can as well as be ready and willing to accept. This Universal Law applies to everything, but especially money, friendship and love. To attract more love into our life or a loving relationship when we feel ready, we must first open our own heart fully, (not close it down in an effort to protect ourselves, no matter how much we feel we have been hurt in the past) and send out bucket loads of love to others.
A lovely exercise I teach for doing this was inspired by an Indian story called ‘Indra’s net’ and all you have to do is to imagine a beautiful sparkling net in the sky. Where ever there is a crossed strand it is knotted with a bright sparking gemstone, just like a fishing net strung with a thousand jewels. This is especially easy on a brightly lit Autumn night when the sky is full of twinkling stars – particularly if you are fortunate enough to be away from a city where there is very little light pollution. Take a seat, or even better lie down on the ground and take some deep breaths, imagining this beautiful spangling net, … imagine throwing it out into the Universe with all your love, from your heart. Now imagine that by all of those shining stars, or gemstones stands a beautiful angel sending out light and love. Now imagine yourself as one of them, beaming your own love and light all over the world. As you shine your love it is reflected back to you by all the others.
Allow yourself to feel that loving energy and then bring yourself back into your own space and reality, drawing in the net towards you along with all the loving energy that you need. The more you ‘cast your net’ of love and sparking energy around you, the more the Universe recognises your readiness to give and receive unconditional love in your own personal life. Enjoy.Read More
