Listening: Angels are Talking

With some down time and the recent holiday with family I gained fresh insight about the benefits of listening.  As I focused less on business and more on health and family I found I had even more opportunity for listening. The listening I am speaking of is the listening which takes place when we commune with Spirit/Divinity/God.  Spiritual listening is about taking the time to calm, focus and listen to our Higher Self. This type of listening has also been a topic many have recently talked about during classes and coaching sessions. In our present state of experiencing higher frequencies as we move into a higher dimension many are “hearing” the call to listen. Some individuals hear their name called and find no one in the physical is calling them. Others hear sounds such as tapping or knocking and find no one (in the physical) is there. Considering these statements and discussing the situations most individuals experience enlightenment when they recognize it is very likely their Higher Self is trying to speak. In these discussions I defined a few key tips about listening to our Divinity/God.

Focusing on the NOW and living in the moment for as little as 15 minutes while coming from that place of self acceptance and love will set the stage for quiet time. Affirmations such as, “I am peace; I am safe,” may help you feel safe when opening your heart to hear what your Higher Self/Spirit has to say. Take time to really feel this as you begin to relax.

If you experience what we often call monkey mind – that endless chatter within – relax as you look at these thoughts and then release them. Recently, while meditating and listening I came up with a great idea for a post on facebook – that is an example of monkey mind. I let the thought come and go and then I went back to breathing and my affirmation. I turned my focus to how I felt and the energy surrounding me.

Three tips on listening:

  • Be open to listening; Allow Self to hear the loving guidance and messages from Spirit/God/Goddess
  • Create a space where you feel safe, protected and peaceful. Use an affirmation you like which makes you feel safe.
  • Relax and allow the monkey mind thoughts to come and go – look at them and release them. Turn your focus to what you are feeling – the energy; the emotions

Just as we build a habit to “speak from the heart” we have the ability to build a habit to “listen with the heart”. Taking small intervals of time and meditating we have the opportunity to tune in and listen. Ask Spirit/Divinity/God to speak to you; you are ready to listen. In this state we are opening ourselves to be guided, directed and loved.

Permission: The Rewards of Allowing

This week I was not feeling well and fought the inclination to keep moving.  There is always so much to do and I began to be concerned about missed opportunities if I chose to take the time to rest and heal.  It did not take long for me to decide on my action.  I gave myself permission to take time and allow my body to heal.  It seemed as though giving myself permission was a turning point.  I immediately felt a weight had been lifted; I relaxed into the thoughts of healing and getting some sleep.

I have been finding out more and more the rewards of allowing my life and the world around me to unfold.  It is a habit which, in the beginning, takes some focus and effort however, the rewards are great.  When I began to develop this habit I noticed that as soon as I thought of allowing, my shoulders relaxed, then my entire body.  It is as though the responsibility of self judgment and judging others disappears and in its place is the knowing that all is as it should be.  As I continued to bring allowing into my life I noticed feelings of happiness, love and inner joy sprang into my being as soon as I let go of the negative feelings of self-denial, judging and control.

Permission and allowing are synonymous – closely related in meaning.  Often one word is more powerful than the other.  For me, in this instance, saying, “This is okay, Angel – you have your permission to stop and heal,” was very powerful.
So, I wanted to relay to you the fantastic rewards of allowing, giving permission, for your life to unfold.
  • Stress disappears, the body relaxes
  • An awareness of living in the present moment comes into focus
  • Emotions switch over to positive; seeing the possibilities takes place
  • Desires begin to pop into reality

What was my desire?  I wanted to let go and allow time for healing. I wanted to feel well, wanted someone to take care of me and wanted some assistance with healing.  All of these things came into my reality!  I appreciate you all for sending your love and healing.

Daily Pratices for More Joy

These are three good practices I use daily. Making these a part of my life has brought more excitement and joy into my life experiences.

  1. Letting go of control: Realizing that we are not in control over the events that take place in our life helps us let go of the attachments to the outcome.  By changing your thought patterns you may reduce stress and worry about how all the details are going to play out. When you realize you are pushing, pushing, pushing – Stop, relax, breathe and let go.
  2. Accept that you are amazing! From the moment you awaken, smiling and bringing up your energy, release the limiting beliefs of your past self. Create a fabulous new you every morning.  Always remember and give yourself permission to be amazing.
  3. Human – yes, you are! Mistakes are going to happen. People feelings are going to get hurt and you will sometimes feel hurt also. Give yourself a break! Be forgiving, compassionate and loving to yourself.

If these resonate with you, write key words on a piece of paper and tape it to your mirror. First thing each morning, review your key words and practice them until they become a part of who you are because you are amazing!
