Embrace Your Experience
Last night I was woken in the middle of the night by a bright light beside my bed. I don’t know what time it was but when I opened my eyes there was an orb floating just above my night table. I smiled, said “thank you” and watched the light slowly fade away before closing my eyes and returning to sleep. It was the first time I’ve seen an orb in person although I have seen orbs in lots of pictures. I feel like this orb was Sal, my guardian angel.
Why am I sharing this you ask? Well, I guess it just feels like it’s time. Time to share some of my personal experiences and encourage you to share yours?
Why is this important? Because if you’re like me or know anyone who has experiences like this, it’s nice to know you’re not alone………or crazy.
You see, for years I “hid” these types of experiences and rarely spoke of them. If I did it was with few people who I felt would understand. It’s only been in the last ten or fifteen years that I openly speak about this and I still get weird looks and eye rolls from some people. And my experiences with angels are even more suspect for some. So I’ve limited my sharing and been careful about when and where I do so……..but lately…….well, I think maybe this world would benefit from considering that there might be things happening around us that are beyond our scope of understanding and we simply haven’t created the technology to prove these things are real and true.
Before I go any further I feel the need to address those of you who think this is all foolishness……..these are my experiences and beliefs. You are free to have your own and I would encourage that, but please don’t dispute my experiences simply because you’ve not had them. And no, I can’t explain why some people do and others don’t. And yes, I am for real……..phew…….now my brother John will be happy :)
Here are a few ways I have felt the presence of others, specifically angels, guides or dead people……..
*the night my granddad died I woke up to see him sitting on my bed. He said “everything is okay”. I felt peace.
*when driving to Calgary I heard my grandmas laugh and felt her sitting beside me. I felt protected.
*at a difficult time in my life I woke up one morning and heard a male voice say my name. It wasn’t my husbands voice, he was asleep beside me and I felt safe and supported.
*when doing a reading I often feel a powerful, strong presence behind me……I’ve come to believe this is Archangel Michael.
*I visited the place where my friend had spread her parents ashes and suddenly I saw what I can only describe as a curtain blowing the in the breeze beside me. I think this is the veil between the living and dead.
*the morning my cousin had her daughter I woke up to see twinkling lights above the bed and heard “its a girl”. Two hours later I got the call that a beautiful baby girl had indeed been born.
*just this week when visiting my mom I saw twinkling lights around her head. I’ve seen these many times around many people.
Now you may wonder what all this means? I can tell you that I have never felt fear around these experiences, only peace and love. Which leads me to believe that I am being guided and encouraged to trust that all is well and to spread peace, love and joy as best I can. I know I’m not alone in these experiences and I suspect many people have them but justify or explain them away. I am learning to pay closer attention to message and explore what these mean…….not only for me but for others as well. I do believe there are forces around us yet we are so out of touch with ourselves and so bogged down with this human experience that we’ve lost touch with our higher power.
Which brings me to God………something I rarely discuss here because I know it’s a topic that brings out the best and worst in people……but I’m going for it anyway.
So here is my understanding of God………..very little. I cannot even begin to grasp the power of love and light that I believe is God. I think if we as human beings could feel even a sliver of this omnipotent force, war would end, prejudices would be unheard of, hunger would be eradicated and there would be peace in every corner of this planet. Our need for worldly comfort would fall well below our desire to support each and every being on earth. Our fears would be non-existent because we would know - deep in our souls - that all is well. In fact, I believe that our souls already know this………but most of us have forgotten that. (And maybe that’s what angels are trying to remind us of). Religion would be nonexistent because God didn’t create religion, man did…….and we would remember that nothing man created holds a candle to that which God has given us. I think Ziggy Marley said it best………”Love is my religion”……..I think God likes that……..
Don’t take my word for it. Get quiet, allow yourself to experience everything available to you and explore possibilities rather than facts…….and let me know what shows up.
Peace & Love,
