Angel to Angel
Years ago, my minister spoke to us about how you could solicit the help of your guardian angels to help with conflict resolution. She told us stories about how she and others had successfully asked their guardian angels to speak to the enemy's guardian angel. The idea being that when you find yourself in an argumentative situation with someone, that you could request that your guardian angel talk angel to angel with their guardian angel about finding a win-win situation. She gave us examples of times when after asking for the angels to help mediate the problem, that the other party suddenly softened and the solutions began to easily show themselves. As she told the stories of her successes with this approach to problem solving, I began to think about how to use it in my own life.
I'm not much for praying in the traditional down on your knees with templed hands approach. I can't concentrate like that. My knees hurt and I pay more attention to keeping my hands in that saintly position and forget to really connect with any form of a higher celestial type being. It works better for me to take out pen and paper and to hand write a letter to my angels. In really thinking through what I want to say in the letter, I guess I end up sending out a prayer after all. It's just a different form of prayer. So, when I decided to use my minister's advice about requesting angel to angel intervention for my problems in life, I immediately started writing letters to my angels and sometimes I wrote the letter directly to the other person's angel if I could get a 'feel' for which angel was looking after them.
It really worked very nicely. I don't usually have enemies per se, maybe just grumpy coworkers and such, but I did see a softening of spirit and things always got better. Yes, I admit the softening may have come from me, but that's not what's important. What matters is that the process served its purpose and peace and harmony was created much easier than before I had started writing to the angels.
So, if they can help us with bad relationships, then why can't they help us with good ones too? I started using the letters to the angels to help with my love life. I'm sorry to report that the angels will NOT help your crush fall in love with you. Bah! But they will help someone who's a bit shy but interested feel more comfortable about taking that leap of faith and asking you out. Okay, fair enough. When you just can't find the words to tell someone that you care about just how much they mean to you, then try writing it to your guardian angel and asking them to deliver the message for you. Again, whether you pray to them or write to them, it forces you to find the words to say exactly what it is you want to say. Perhaps that's where the magic lies. I don't know, but when I just write to some vague nothingness in the sky, then nothing happens. It only works when I'm writing to the angels. Maybe they're real and maybe they're not, but believing they're real and that they'll help seems to work its magic on me and on my relationships.
I read an email from a new friend who had read somewhere that this was a good way to repel negativity. She gave some examples of how she had used it recently in her personal life. The one I thought was very interesting was how she used the angels' help to protect her sense of personal space. She doesn't like feeling crowded by strangers and asked that the angels keep everyone back to a comfortable distance. Apparently it worked. That's an area I hadn't thought to use it in. I am reminded of walking in dark parking lots to get to my car, or when taking small children to the fair and not wanting to get separated. I will try asking for the angels' help with these little comfort and safety areas.
I've also used the letters to angels technique in my work too. One such letter became an article because they told me it was a universal prayer and needed to be typed up formally for everyone's benefit. Click here to read The Entrepreneur's Prayer if you haven't already. In the past, I've used the prayer letters to help me find start up capital for my business and to help me find the right office space to lease. I keep an open-ended request for guidance in all of my spiritual work. I ask them when to write, what to write, when to pitch my work, when to rework the website, and when to have a toes-in-the-sand-at-the-beach-day so as to become re-inspired again. As long as I'm listening, I pretty much always get great advice and am in the flow of some sort of cosmic divine timing. When I can't 'hear' them and need direction, then I will write the letters again. Soon afterwards, I am able to 'feel' their presence and can spot the signs again that they're still here helping me.
I don't use them too much for personal gain, because I have this funny little voice that says I'm not supposed to bug them for money and material possessions. I am working to get past that belief system because when I have asked them to help with creating a new car or to find the new home we're meant to live in, they've always taken excellent care of us and found the perfect car or the perfect home for us at that time.
Find your form of prayer. I don't think it matters how you create the prayer, but I do know that it works. Call on them and they will help you, in their way, in their time.

Thinking Out Loud (Answers) Part two of a two part series
(Channeled)Spirituality is about everyday life, which includes getting up in the morning, getting ready for the day be it work, school or play. It is about knowing yourself and the connection to your environment. It is about defining who you are and then living a purposeful life within those definitions, it is about changing those definitions and making adjustments to accommodate them. It is about saying to the world "I AM," and demonstrating it within the physical body that you created.
Understanding the Gospel of Matthew and Why it Matters - Part 4
No one appreciates mothers enough. In this life, that's a given. The only one who comes closest to a real appreciation is a woman who has become a mother herself, and even she probably doesn't fully appreciate the woman a generation above her.
Achieving Spiritual Health
Spiritual health is generally an overlooked aspect of healing. However, it is actually the ultimate goal of holistic medicine, and leads to a heightened awareness of the Divine Spirit referred to by all religions. It doesn't matter what name you give it. What matters is that you come to know and attune yourself to its guidance in all areas of your daily life. Doing so will reduce your feelings of fear, and provide you with a greater capacity for loving yourself and others unconditionally. It will also help you reconnect to your special talents and gifts so that you can use them to fulfill your life's purpose."
Did You Use Your Sword Today?
It's real easy to look at the physical world around us and not see swords being used. To even find one it is often necessary to go to a museum. So what am I talking about?
Youre Standing Between Two Clouds
On one side there is a dark cloud. It is full of pain, sickness, disease, poverty, and death. All of the curses talked about in Deuteronomy 28 are swarming in circles.

Traveling Out Of Body
I can see the cops coming! They're a good thousand feet away. I can clearly make out their uniforms and swinging nightsticks. How can I be seeing this?
The S Word
We all sin. To avoid using the "s" word, we may call it by other less penetrating names; politically correct names. But sin by any other name remains what it is, sin. It is not uncommon for man to blame external causes and conditions for our troubles and sicknesses, while all the time the real trouble is sin.
Unification of World Religions
If anyone says that his/her religion is the only path to God and that other paths lead to hell, I have one humble question. The question is for every religion without any trace of partiality. The simple question is: Today I have heard your Religion and if I follow that, I reach God and if I refuse I will go to the hell for my own fault. This is very much reasonable. But before your ancestors discovered our country, the literature or even the name of your religion was not known to our ancestor and he could not reach God for no fault of him. But your ancestor reached God through your religion at that time.
Ego, Duality, and Paradise (Why You Cant Get to Paradise on an Ego Trip)
If you've been on a conscious spiritual journey for any time at all, you have likely figured out that there is an aspect of you that is working overtime to keep you out of Nirvana. That pesky entity is none other than your ego. Your ego, however, does not realize it is a problem; instead, it believes itself to be your heroic savior and the only thing standing between you and extinction. Indeed, the ego is correct in this-without your ego, there would be no "you." Your ego is the aspect of your psyche that maintains the idea that you are an individuated, separate, autonomous being. Laboring under this notion, it attempts to steward your life according to this model, and rebels at the notion that you are actually one with all Creation.
Connect With the Moon Phases to Manifest Your Desires
Connecting with the Moon phases, the Full and New Moon phases in particular, is something anyone can do very easily. It is all about energy (isn't everything?) and directing the energies in a positive way. In other words, there isn't anything "woo-woo" about using the Full and New Moon energies, in case certain images of running around naked and chanting in the moonlight are coming to mind! As many of us already know, we as humans, the animals and our planet Earth are highly influenced by the Moon in various ways.
People Fail in Life Because They Do Not Plan
Life is growth. For many people life is like a merry go round. They feel life is going to work, paying bills, spend time with family that is it. You must always ask this question. Is this all I want in my life? Are you utilizing your God given potential? You must make a choice of how you want to live your life.
40 Days and 40 Nights
I am beginning a journey starting tomorrow. I have decided that doing some serious soul searching is in order for me. I have been getting messages so to speak that make me realize I am changing into someone I don't particularly like right now. I feel ashamed and unworthy as a spiritual person and I need this chance to prove my worth not only to my self but to the One who created me. I am making some promises on this day, that I intend to take seriously and to heart, not just to heart though. I need to take this into my soul.
What kind of foolishness is astrology? You read about Sun Signs in the paper and you can see almost every sign says something ambiguous or relevant in some general way. Surely no real science or serious people ever believed such foolishness. Yet all your heroes from the past were believers! Even Ronald Reagan and others of today order their lives according to astrological implications. I don't and never have, but that is because I have studied the field in great depth. It isn't just astrology that is at work or through which the forces interact with all life on the planet. The palm, the foot and the head or facial make-up can be read to see what effect may have determined some of how a person will approach life. The hand has all the astrological knowledge available 'right in the palm of your' as they say. The mount of the Moon and the girdle of Venus (should you be so lucky to have one) are there along with Saturnine and Mercurious deflected energy.
New Hope For Global Peace
In a recent article entitled "Some Evidence of How We Are Spiritually Connected" I reported on a case study where I was able to give some evidence as to how individuals who have overlapping life histories share such histories as information stored in what I term "interpersonal", "shared" or "collective" thought fields. These fields hold all the overlapping memories, experiences and beliefs that the individuals who are connected to those fields hold in their consciousnesses.
Thou Shalt Not Judge
Judgement; What does this mean? The encyclopedia definition is, "The process of forming an opinion by discerning and comparing". The bible says, "Judge not, lest you be judged", and, "How many times as christians, do we do this?" Are we not to,"judge the sinners?" No, that is not our responsibility. Remember, what Jesus said, " I have not come to judge, but to save those that are lost". Jesus, the great I AM, did not come here to judge us by what we looked like. He, came here to save us from sin. So how, "If the great I AM accepts us, can we not do the same for others?"
