I’m almost done with my seasonal training.  It still remains to be seen if I even get hired or not.  (That depends on a few factors, one of which is a final exam.  I don’t test well, we’ll see how it goes.)

             Amongst the upheaval that six long days of personally being bombarded with new and complicated information brings, we’ve been experiencing far too much negative news, on a global and national level.

             While I’m certainly not saying that it’s best to ignore this type of information, I was reminded earlier that spending time with it is not productive.  Yes, acknowledge.  Yes, do our part to help.  Yes, drench every soul involved with love and light and blessings and prayers and power and and and…..

             But no, please, the Universe says, don’t let it pull you down.  Don’t let it blanket you in sorrow or smother you in fear.

             Here’s what I heard:


             Because THAT is the truth.  There is ALWAYS and FOREVER much more Hope than there is poor behaviour and heinous activity.  There is more Hope than despair.

             The reason for this spiritual truth is because WE SAY SO!  We make it happen.  We are the relief.  We are the potential for a better tomorrow.

             And we do it by holding on to Hope.  We do it by stopping somewhere in our day and looking at pictures which make us smile, listening to music which soothes our soul.

             We do it by holding the hand of someone we love.  We do it by texting our phoning a person with whom we can share a laugh.

             We do it.  We choose Joy.  We see the promise of tomorrow.  We ARE Hope.

             And, according to who dropped by our card altar, we are also in no danger.  While this may not be our favorite illustration, the message here is powerful.  Plus, it has a beautiful and distinctly validating feel.

Archangel Michael

“You Are Safe  ~

Archangel Michael:

‘I am protecting you against lower energies, and guarding you, your loved ones, and home.’

Additional Message:

‘Let go of worries, as I’m surrounding you, your love ones, home, and possessions with powerful loving light.

This light repels lower energies, and attracts loving experiences.  Focus on this light and love – instead of on fear – as you’ll attract the object of your focus.

With your mind free of fear, you have additional time and energy to devote to your life’s missions.  You are free when you are fearless.

Know that you are safe at all times, and that my protection is flawless.’

Working with Archangel Michael:

Michael’s role is to escort away the lower energies of fear.  If you become worried or anxious, mentally ask him to bring you peace.  You can also ask that he clear your home, office, vehicle, or community of toxic energies.

After you call upon Michael, you will likely notice a warm feeling.  That’s because he has a fiery warrior spirit.  You can ask Michael to stay with you continuously, as he is able to be with everyone who calls upon him simultaneously.”

One thought on “Realism, Hopefully

  1. Really a fabulous message and card; I needed it on Wednesday, when I got home from a long day to be confronted with the shooting in San Bernadino and a barrage of “persecuted Christians at Christmas” postings coming at me on the facebooks. I was able to disengage, and reading this, reminds me of how to balance it all. I am picking this up on Sunday morning, after one of our busiest days of the year (Tuba Christmas round 1). Thanks for a good message at a good time!
