Angel of August – Acceptance

Let the mist of unworthiness evaporate. Move forward and embrace life as it presents itself to you. Practice the art of inclusion and allowing.

Self-acceptance is a gift of internal belonging that embraces who we are and who we are not. It widens our perception so that we can include the many paradoxes of life.

Acceptance reduces the conflict levels inside and around us and invokes change. It releases us from the struggle against reality and then new possibilities can open up to us that did not exist before.

Angel of July is Abundance

Cultivate an attitude of generosity and act as though there is plenty for you and for everyone, everywhere.

Give freely and generously.

One of the biggest fears held within humanity is the fear of loss. This may be of a job, partner, image, youth, life style (especially money) or finally – death of the body. But, fear can serve us and turn us around to call our attention to what we have and gratefully remind us to take steps to care for what we have been given.

Holding tightly to what scares us produces heart-quakes and moves us out of the universal flow causing us to live in ‘scare-city’. The energy of wanting; things a certain way, circumstances to change, feelings to be different – is an ineffective approach because we can only want things to change according to what we think we know.

Angel of May is Transformation

Change happens when you take responsibility for your awareness and apply it to your everyday life, small moment by small moment.

Life is an alchemical process of constant change from our bodies to our circumstances to our environment. How we respond to the evolving world of form directly relates to our ability to internalize our awareness, and focus our actions from the sacred inner space at the depth of our beings.

It is not about eliminating the ego or lower self. It is about allowing our higher nature to absorb the ego into itself and thereby transform it. To become a kind, loving, generous, and respectful being, we have to put effort into it by conducting ourselves according to our highest values. Every moment is an opportunity to recreate ourselves and it happens one feeling, one thought, one act at a time.

Angel of February is Trust

Move from a place of knowing within you rather than as a result of adaptation to outer experience.

Let go of your assumptions and need to control life’s creative process.

It does not matter what spiritual path you’re on, an ultimate sense of peace comes down to one question: Can you let go of the need to control your life, and trust there is a benevolent force guiding all that ever has, is, and will happen?

Trust is the soul’s way of attuning to the fundamental laws of reality. There is a deep rhythm that moves through all life that cannot be controlled by our will. When trust informs our experience, it allows our psyche to relax and our soul to be at peace with our situation. We can rest in unquestioned confidence that the universe provides, that we have and will receive what we really need. In fact, often beyond what we alone are even capable of imagining.

Angel of November is Play

Maximize every moment of aliveness. Experience
pleasurable involvement in all your activities and enjoy what you are doing.
Have Fun!

Play is at the heart of our creativity and animates our being in our most carefree moments. It helps us live with absurdity, paradox, and mystery. It feeds our childlike joy and wonder. It keeps our search for meaning grounded and on to earth.

There is so much going on in the world, and within us, that our stress levels have adjusted upwards to a new ‘normal’ creating a hidden epidemic of fun deficit disorder (FDD). Play is an antidote to stress. It can totally absorb your attention and cause a cascade of feelings that greatly impact your happiness quotient.

Angel of October is Abundance

Cultivate an attitude of generosity and act as though there is plenty for you and for everyone, everywhere.

Give freely and generously.

One of the biggest fears held within humanity is the fear of loss. This may be of a job, partner, image, youth, life style (especially money) or finally – death of the body. But, fear can also be healthy and serve us as it calls our attention to gratefulness and reminds us to take steps to care for what we have been given.

Holding tightly to what scares us produces heart-quakes and moves us out of the universal flow causing us to live in ‘scare-city’. The energy of wanting; things a certain way, circumstances to change, feelings to be different – is an ineffective approach because we can only want things to change according to what we think we know.

Angel of September is Synthesis

Act with a win-win attitude.

Use your creativity and sensitivity to blend all the diverse parts into a unified whole.

We inter-face with the world in numerous ways; as a partner, a family member, child, parent, pet pal, neighbor, customer, and community member both culturally and nationally to name a few. Who is the ‘one’ that is behind the many faces — who is the ‘one’ inner-face?

The world we live in does not always appear to support the experience of essence living and this creates pressure. To protect our core expression we build defenses. The tension is felt as a suffering that closes our hearts, contracts our spirit, and limits our creativity.
