“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference”
‘Oh what a perfect day!’ Some days are just like this; they fall into place and everything flows beautifully. When this happens life is smooth, easy, accomplished. We smile at the world and the world smiles back. It’s easy to feel thankful and in tune with the Universe – these are the high vibe days that spark joy.
“Listen to your vulnerable feelings as they contain wisdom and inspiration.”
But life’s not always so simple is it? We can be challenged, distracted or boycotted. How we respond, of course, depends on the recipe of our lives and the ingredients of our experiences. On days like this it is important to listen to the wisdom of your feelings but oh how easy it can be to get stuck in frustration and forget about appreciation in the process.
“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
I love that quote. It brings my thinking, feeling and doing actions right up to where they belong. Gratitude helps us step closer to the voice of Angels. We hear their pure and loving words that little bit easier when we are in this zone. Angels come on the wings of friendship, compassion, understanding and grace. Their intention is to ‘spark joy’ in us so we can access it in our lives and give it to others. It’s an uplifting, liberating and reciprocal thing.
“CHERISH THE NOW. TROUBLE NO MORE AND WE WILL GUIDE YOU.”
How comforting is this Guardian Angel guidance to help you change the way you feel and to see frustration as a sign that it’s time to call in the angels for lighting the way and re-framing intention – to seize the moment and make that call.
“Each day brings new miracles to celebrate. Each moment can be a miracle if we choose to perceive it that way.”
SOUL TIP: When the voice of my resistance gets in the way; when I’m finding it hard to genuinely connect with the emotion of gratitude, I ask my thoughts to step into the wonderful for me instead – that’s the wonder of miracles above and beyond me e.g. a glorious sunrise, an azure blue sea, a beautiful rose, bird song at dawn, birth of a child. This instantly transforms and realigns my mindfulness.
Whether you need to let go with grace, step into the power of moving on or, like the Serenity Prayer, accept what is for the time-being, gratitude is the rescue remedy that positively recalibrates energy – The Serenity Prayer invites Divine wisdom to elevate energy. You’ll feel the change and when you do, it’s as if the angels are smiling with you – you become the change you wanted to be: no longer stuck in frustration but standing happier in appreciation – and when you find you are smiling involuntarily to yourself, you’ll know an Angel has whispered directly to your heart.
In the power of this moment I recognize that appreciation is a state of mind.
Thank you Angels.
