Musing on the Oil Spill (Angels on My Shoulder)

 Thanks Susan for sharing this, I completely feel the same way. We should be finding ways to send love into the area instead of fear, and also using all our wonderful technology for finding new ways of using alternative energies to power our grid :)

"I often wake up early and spend an hour or so meditating, praying and reflecting. I've been seeing images of the live feed of the oil spill and this morning began musing about the fact that we have the technology to watch the oil come gushing out but see unable to stop it.

As I was meditating this AM I was also wondering how many of the people who voice concern about the oil spill helped create it in the first place. For years now I have grown fruits and vegetables because I enjoy doing it, used solar hot water and this year I put solar electric panels on my roof to generate my own electricity. I try to make sure my footprint on this earth is as loving and gentle as possible.

A long time ago I realized how powerful my everyday choices are in my life and the lives of those around me. The angels show me a world of love and I can share that love freely or be miserly and think only of myself.

In February I am leading a retreat to Baja to spend 5 days with the whales. Once you have looked into the eye of one of these amazing beings life is never quite the same. I love the ocean and this planet. I know that everything is perfect and that each event is an opportunity to deepen our connection with our limiting beliefs or with our divinity. I get to make that choice moment by moment, thought by thought and action by action.

As a nation what choices will we make in the days to come? Will we add more love or anger to this planet? When we see images of wildlife dying will we judge or open our hearts and pray? This world, our leaders and the CEOs of the world need more love and divine guidance and not more anger, judgment and fear.

Help me imagine the light of love filling the region and everyone affected even remotely by this oil spill, including you and me. The angels have the power to work miracles and a miracle sure would be nice.

With love , 

Angels are everywhere just open your mind and your heart to the signs.

Invocations for the Archangels and Angels

 We are eternally in the company of angels. Perpetually guarded and constantly surrounded by celestial beings, they are always there to call upon whenever there is need.  Countless ways can be used to call upon the aid of the angels.~Whatever works for you is my motto~
I say, "Connecting with your angels is a peaceful way to start your day", (I know, corny, but it really feels good and seems to get the point across well :)) It doesn't matter if you've never tried it before, it's easy if you open your heart to them.
Read more on How to Connect With Your Angels here. 

Also I'd like to give a shout out and a heartfelt thanks to Rex Hauck for his excellent interview with Joan Borysenko on on her version of invoking the Archangels: (see more here)

Invocation of the Archangels:
Uriel, Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael

Rex Hauck:
Each day you make contact with the angels. Can you tell us how you do that?
Joan Borysenko: My own practice of meditation is informed in part by Jewish mysticism. And Jewish mysticism has a belief in the angels. I grew up Jewish and I never knew that Jews believed in angels. My Catholic friends had guardian angels--my Jewish friends, no angels.
Several years ago I was leading a women's retreat, which started on a Friday night. And I thought, "Let's welcome in the Sabbath." In Judaism, when you welcome the Sabbath, you're welcoming the Shekinah, the feminine principle of God. And there's a song that one sings called "Shalom Aleichem/Welcome to Peace." As I researched this, I found it was a song of welcome to the angels--who come in to help you keep the Sabbath, to protect you for this holy 24 hours during which you pull yourself out of the world and you come into the divine presence. And so I found an old meditation that really changed my spiritual practice.
It has to do with the invocation of the four archangels: Uriel, Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael. And, first of all, I want to say that oftentimes when you talk about angels, people go, "Oh damn, they're all men, the patriarchy has taken over again here." But in Hebrew, those names are neither masculine nor feminine--they're all aspects of God.
Uriel--ur, in Hebrew--means "fire." And you invoke this as it comes up in the east. So, if I am facing east, as you would in prayer, I invoke Uriel in the space in front of me. The fire of God is all about clarity, so I'll ask Uriel, "Please give me clarity in this day. How can I best be of service?" Or, if I'm going through some problems, I'll ask specifically for clarity on that problem.
Then I'll move to my right, which would be south, and the angel of the south is Gabriel. Gabriel in Hebrew means "the strength of God," particularly the strength to face and overcome one’s fears. And so I'll think, "What are my fears and where do I need strength?” and I'll ask for Gabriel's help.
To my western side, in the back of me, I invoke the angel Raphael. In Hebrew, Raphael means "the healer of God." And the west is the gate of death and rebirth--this is very much like the "medicine wheel" of Native American culture. And the guardian of the western gates is Raphael. So if there's particular healing I need--physical healing or emotional healing--I'll ask Raphael for that. But I'll also think about what's dying away in my life so that something new can be born, and I'll ask for illumination or help about that thing.
The last angel would be directly to my left and that's the northern side and that's Michael. In Hebrew, Michael means "how like unto God" and is the energy of wisdom and of love. In the Native American tradition, the north is "the great frozen lakes of winter." You look in that lake and it allows you to have a mirror of your life--to get insight on the meaning of your life, to reflect deeply on things. So that's what I'll do: spend a moment or two reflecting on my life, and if there's something I really feel I need some more insight on, or true wisdom about, I will ask for the help of Michael.
The last part of the ancient Jewish practice is that after the invocation of the four angels, one is supposed to imagine the light of the Shekinah, the "divine principle of God," and that is everything created by the feminine, the nurturing, the womblike aspect of God. And you imagine that washing over you--washing over you and pouring through you. As all my own negativity and doubt wash away, I imagine my heart becoming lighter and lighter and lighter and expanding to encase me in an egg of light, which interweaves with the light of the divine. That's how I start my meditation every morning, and then I just sit in that divine presence for a period of time afterward as the bulk of my meditation.
Rex Hauck: Are you aware of angelic presence throughout the day?
Joan Borysenko: Definitely. And let me tell you, I was surprised by this initially. I started to do this practice and almost immediately I became aware of presences around the different sides of my body during the day. I'm frequently aware of the presence of Michael to my left, and I find particularly, if somebody says something in conversation that I should really take note of--or if I'm reading something that I should really take note of--I feel almost not a tapping on my shoulder, but a sense of the presence moving really closer, a sense of "pay attention!" And when I find myself afraid of something, some old fear coming up, I'll consciously call upon Gabriel. Or if I find that I am totally confused, I'll call upon Uriel. Or if I feel that I'm emotionally ragged, or if I have a headache, I'll call upon Raphael. It has become a very important part of my daily life.

If you've read my article on How to Connect with Your Angels,
then you'll note the basics of dealing with your angels only adds to a deeper connection when invoking the Archangels for specific wants or needs.
Just remember, they are not personal assistants to retrieve or help you with everything YOU see that you want, they know your higher potentials and only want what God wants for you find who you really are, and the angels will give you all kinds of helps, signs, suggestions, nudges throughts, through all kinds of ways; specific lyrics of a song, music or a bird call, a flower, a note on the breeze, a specific animal energy for you to find meaning in, a significant sunlit area, it could be anything at all if you're open to receiving the message.

A few notes;  don't expect to hear from deceased loved ones (tho' on occassion, it's been known to happen), and don't expect them to give you everything you's not going to happen, they are there for a specific purpose (s). Just be thankful that they are there to protect and aide you however they can.

This review is for: Evidence of Angels (Hardcover)
I found out about this book after visiting the Authors website and was impressed by her work. I didn't expect what a gift this beautifully printed book would turn out to be for me. It is about how Angels inspire us to access the strength inside us all to better manage life's joys and sorrows. Scalora's message is simple, direct and doesn't stand on religious pretense, it's universally human in its delivery and it brought tears to my eyes the first time I read it. It's a book you want to leave out so you can pick it up again. As a picture book by itself it's superb. Each page contains stunning color photo illustrations that ride with the text like a friend and do not overpower the message. I find myself repeatedly attracted to this treasure. It's the kind of book that will give a parent as much as it gives the children and friends they share it with. "Evidence of Angels" is dedicated "To every person who has ever felt alone", I feel it is a book for every person with an open heart and the will to follow it. A gift to all and a joy to read. This inspired vision won't disappoint. I bought multiples to share with friends and family this holiday season.

Lyrics and Video to "The Prayer" by Josh Groban and Celine Dion


lyrics by Josh Groban / Sung by Celine Dion and Josh Groban Edit HTML
I pray you'll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don't know
...Let this be our prayer
As we go our way
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe
I pray we'll find your light
And hold it in our hearts
When stars go out each night
Let this be our prayer
When shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe
We ask that life be kind
And watch us from above
We hope each soul will find
Another soul to love
Let this be our prayer
Just like every child
Needs to find a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe...
