“The Eyes to See”

paint-2985569_1920.jpg

I once asked in an intuitive report about connecting with the angels.  The response was that these energies were already available to me. I just needed the “eyes to see”.  This puzzled me a bit, and I came away from my first listen thinking that I was just not trained enough, maybe just not metaphysical enough yet.

But today the message popped up for me again (as messages often do), and I realized that wasn’t it at all.  It means that the angels already were communicating with me all of the time.  I just couldn’t see it.

They were whispering in my ear to pick up guitar again and play for the patients at the nursing home.  They were the voice of the volunteer coordinator who told me it was a great idea.  They were the kick in the butt that finally got me out the door and to the home for that beautiful experience with a patient and his family as he was getting nearer to transitioning.

They were the nudge to pick up The Vortex from the used book store, the voice of my coach telling me to read it, and in the voices of the patients who inspired me to leave the book in the waiting room after it had been sitting in my back untouched.  They were also in the voice of the waiting patient who days later read a passage from the book that I needed to hear as much as she did.

They are in the coincidences, the messages I receive from songs, words from friends and strangers, angel numbers, and feelings of inspiration and joy.

In another text I listened to or read recently, it said angels are always there.  It doesn’t matter whether you believe in them or not, they will continue to be there for you, loving you and helping you.

What a beautiful thing. ❤  Much love and many blessings. ❤

A Book Look: Ruby the Copycat & Penny and Her Marble

Why should an adult read a children’s book?

Well, first of all it’s FUN.  They can bring back childhood memories.  And lately I’m realizing that there are some great lessons in there for us, too.

Take Ruby the Copycat, for instance.  I chose this book for one of my tutoring students because it was recommended for practicing the ISAT Reading Extended Response, with a focus on theme.  The book is about a new girl, Ruby, who wants to fit in.  She immediately starts copying things that her new friend has and does.  It takes a broken friendship and a nudge from her teacher for Ruby to finally appreciate her own talents and start being herself.

This sounds like your typical children’s lesson, but then I thought: “Hey!  This applies to me, too!”   My intuitive health analysis said that I desire to align my vibration with others — expecting others to bring me up — when I actually need to hold my own vibration strong enough to lift others.  So, I am Ruby.  We both have come to recognize our own gifts and are learning to be ourselves.

Penny and her Marble comes from my tutoring student, and she summarized it as follows: Penny finds a marble outside her neighbor’s house and keeps it.  As time passes she begins to dwell on it, worrying that her neighbor is upset that it’s missing.  Her worries cause her to lose her appetite and have nightmares, so Penny finally brings it back to her neighbor, only to discover that her neighbor had left the marble there on purpose, hoping somebody would find it and enjoy it.

For my tutoring student the lesson was “Don’t take things that don’t belong to you.”  But it’s about more than that.  This is a story about the importance of communication.  How often do we dwell, worrying about something we did or said to another person, only to find out later that they hadn’t given it a second thought?  (Way guilty here!)  If Penny had confronted her neighbor immediately, she would have saved herself an upset stomach and a sleepless night.  How many of us have experienced the same?

So, don’t be afraid to pick up a children’s book.  They’re for grownups, too!

Have you reread a childhood favorite recently?  See if it applies to you today!  (And please share. :-))
