Do Angels Appear More During the Holidays?
If you’re asking that question you need to learn a thing or two about Life, Angels and the Universe.
I could go on in romantic, poetic prose that sprinkles pixie dust all over us and is driven by unicorns, but I’m not going to. That doesn’t mean I don’t believe in unicorns, I’m just sayin’ I’m not going to talk about it here 😉.
I will say this:
Every single one of us is surrounded by an abundance of Support, Love, Fairy Godmothers, Friends and Angels. You might know who they are, they might be working somewhere in the background beyond your line of sight, but we all have a host of support just waiting to help us if they can.
I hear some of you saying, ‘yeah, right! Then why is my life so hard?’ Maybe the answer is straight-forward: You’re not asking for help.
If you don’t ask, you can’t receive!
I am going to use an angelic metaphor here, (and yes, I believe in angels) but you are free to insert any type of support you want.
Imagine, if you will, a never-ending row of beautiful Angels basking in loungers on an endless beach.
They’re your Unemployed Angels.
You haven’t given them a job or asked them for anything, so they just wait; basking in the sun until called upon. The beauty is that the instant they know how to be of service, a multitude of them spread their beautiful expansive wings and fly up into the ether to start making sh#t happen. They’re just waiting for you to tell them how they can help.
If you’re wondering how to ask? That’s easy; just ask. In your mind or out loud, just say ‘__________, I need help. Please help me find an answer/solution to X Y Z ‘ whatever it is you need help with. You can fill in the blank however you like. Angels, God, Universe, a Friend… or just plain ‘Whoever’s out there’. And if none of those are comfortable, leave it blank. That’s ok too. Whatever is out there isn’t waiting for you to call it by the right name, it’s just waiting to help.
Also remember, it's no good asking for what you don't want. First, what you want is often not the opposite of what you don't want, so they have to guess and often get it wrong. Second, it's important to think about what you really want without filtering it through the negativity in your life right now. Take a moment to imagine how you'd really like to live your life or how the result of your problem being solved can change everything (and don't focus on how that might happen). Anyway, this is a whole other blog, but you get the idea.
Putting this on a very practical level - particularly now as I am posting this during Covid-19 - if you're struggling, lost, overwhelmed, lonely, need a helping hand or just need a shoulder to cry on, reach out to your friends and family (who are angels in their own way). People generally can't read your mind so they don't know you need or want help. Getting over that first hurdle of asking is the hardest part. I KNOW that once you ask, an abundance of support will be there to help.
Now, why does it seem like Angels are more present during the holidays? Because at Christmas we tend to believe in them just a little bit more. We want to believe that magic is real and that miracles happen.
The thing is, it’s not just during the Holidays.
Angels are everywhere.
