It’s been a very exciting day. After a lot of discussion my daughter and I have accepted a dare. We are going to collaborate on a project for the Earth’s ArchAngels. Something that may take time, patience and perseverance. But something that will also be fun, intuitive and full of love.
I’ve known for a long time that this very special bunch of ArchAngels would soon push me out of my comfort zone again. For the last nine years they have stepped me further and further towards my authentic self. In that process I have re discovered my love of painting, writing and music. All of these creative things had slid off my agenda. They disappeared into the background. To that place of ‘might have beens’. But dare by dare the ArchAngels pulled all of these things forward again. Along with many other abilities I had relegated to that place too. Public speaking, channelling, teaching, healing. Lots of steps and lots of new beginnings. So recently, when Etieliel, the leader of the group, started to discuss something I could work with alongside my daughter I knew there was another dare on the way.
I am already working on the book about the Earth’s ArchAngels and the role they take as Guardian Angels of Mother Earth. It’s being channelled in by them to help all of us make the most of their energy streams. Because they have all sorts of wysdom to share. And all sorts of challenges to help us remember that life can be an adventure too. Most of all, they would like all of us to wake up to our own creativity. And so they have given me another challenge. But to help me understand it all I will be working alongside my daughter. It’s also time for her to explore one of her creative talents. But more importantly, for both of us to work together intuitively with these ArchAngels. And to understand how a collaboration can mirror their ways of working together.
It’s a dare to work as one rather than as two. I already know that this is the first step in adding more people to the collaborative process. In building an intuitive team who can link in to the energy of the ArchAngels and show how much can be achieved together. Rather than individually. So dare to create as you may find the ArchAngels working with you too.
Archangels took me by surprise. They walked into my life and turned it upside down. Today I was getting a print of ArchAngel Shimea ready to send out. It’s the first one to go out into the wider world as a result of a painting I did. I felt really proud to be connected to these Energy Beings because they have given me so much.
But right back at the beginning I really thought I had wandered into a strange space in my own head. Because I thought I couldn’t paint. And I was really uncertain if angels actually existed. Yet the energy I connected with was so loving, so patient and very clear. Every way I turned there was a confirmation. Or a message. And the paintings certainly took on a life of their own. However, it has taken me a number of years to feel confident enough to let my artwork speak for itself. Even getting the prints of Shimea done felt like a big step. And the ArchAngels gave me a gentle nudge because someone actually ordered a print when they saw a picture of the painting.
His painting is listed as part of my entry for Hebden Bridge Open Studios. Something I have been taking part in for four years. All to build confidence to show my work to the world. And to understand that other people can also sense the energy in the paintings and prints. Of course Shimea, along with the others in this group of Earth’s Guardian Angels, knew this already. His energy leaps out like the sun on a hot day reminding me to enjoy the Light. Yet he also draws on the energy of the cool places. Grass in the shade. Ponds, Sunlight through the forrest trees. And Shimea shimmers with the golden light of the fireflies, dragonflies and silver winged insects. He reminds me to take life easier. To hover above it all. Moving myself to where there is calm and ease.
I’m glad he walked into my day and reminded me that on a hot day it is wise to rest. That I can do what is necessary without driving myself too hard. And that the sunshine is here to enjoy too. Image posted. Time to wind down!
Unquestioning service? I’ve always had a ‘little’ issue with that. One that makes me smile when I think about it. Because I have often found it so hard to stay silent and get on with what I’ve been asked to do. I know I’ve already mentioned that I like to ask questions. But did I also explain that I also want to understand the point of it all?
I’m certain many people have found me hard work when I have crossed their paths. For me it’s always important to find out where what I am doing will fit. Especially about if it is going to make any difference. Because I don’t want to waste my time. I seem to have been born fed up with being here again and having to do all this life stuff. So when I was asked to do anything I would go into my ‘why’ dialogue. Even if I was debating it with myself. No wonder I procrastinated so much. Today I was chatting about the jobs I have done in my life. And I had a lightbulb moment. A flash of inspiration about unquestioning service that the Angels had been trying to show me.
They live in a realm where service is never questioned. They have no free will so follow the Divine Law and Plan to the letter. I used to feel sorry for them when I first understood this. After all wouldn’t free will offer so many more choices? The ArchAngels soon set me straight. They gave up their free will of their own choice. In fact the last choice they made was to serve unconditionally. Their unquestioning service is an act of loving trust. They understand that an overarching consciousness works within the Law and Plan to offer unconditional love, forgiveness, gratitude and service back to them. They recognise this unquestioning service as a state of grace. In other words, the will to have no will. And that is what I have been doing all weekend.
Synchronicity pulled me out of my original plans into something else entirely. I never asked why. I went and did what I was supposed to do. And there have been so many confirmations that it was unquestioning service that I managed to provide. I feel really fortunate to have been able to surrender my free will in this way. To be of service for a greater good. Although I do have to admit I’m not sure how consistently I could hold to this kind of service. My lesson for the next phase of my life perhaps?
I had a set of plans for today. A To Do List packed full of ‘get on with it’ tasks. However I found myself slowly trying to get my focus back. It wasn’t the list. It was the peaceful drift from higher vibrational energy that sent me off plan. Sometimes I forget about adjustment I have to make when working with Angels.
It was a relief to find I was in good company. Several of the people who attended the workshop were also slowly drifting down out of the energy too. That was really good to hear. Because I got my confirmation that they had made strong and powerful connections with the angelic realm yesterday. I love that other people get the chance to experience the peaceful nature of this kind of connection. And the flow of reassurance that comes from the Angels and ArchAngels. A sort of ‘everything is going to be ok’ inner knowledge. A feeling of strength and the urge to let the everyday cares go. I have to say it’s the kind of energy I would love to have all of the time.
However, I also know that being in such close connection with Angels has to be worked on slowly. My physical body, as well as my Ego Mind, has to get acclimatised. I have to take time out to come back down to this vibration. If only to get on with material world issues. What I can keep with me is that feeling of unconditional love and peace that they always gift to me. Life becomes much less frantic. Emotions are less turbulent. And I can smile in the middle of any drama. What I also do is give myself permission to set aside my To Do List. Instead I do what I feel will give me time to adjust. So I had several meditations sensing out the love and healing from the ArchAngels.
Then I got my planner out and reflected on the first half of the year. As well as adding in time for some new ideas that came through yesterday and today. Finally I took myself off to a local cafe so I could slowly savour a coffee. That was so I could slide quietly back into the ‘real’ world. The ArchAngels are still around. They always are. But they have helped me get safely back to my human vibration. Ready to tackle that To Do List tomorrow!
I’m away from home for some reflection. Finding a clear space to work through the energy impact of the first half of the year. Sorting out the muddles and confusion. Getting sharpness back with my vision. And here are the ArchAngels ready to help.
Standing with me are Darashiel, Samesh and Parashiel. These of the Earth’s Guardian Angels are supporting me because I do need to have sharpness right now. There is no time left for distractions. I have to get in with what I came here to do. So Grandfather Samesh is grounding me and reminding me of the Earth as a planet of pleasure. Parashiel is giving me his healing Balm so that I can release myself from the prison of my thoughts. Whilst Darashiel is helping me to watch my emotions. To feel them, understand them and to let them flow away from me. All three of them bring me Divine love. And Divine understanding. I am floating in the energy of unconditional love reminding myself that I am a Spirit full of that love.
Sharpness can also help me cut ties that no longer serve my higher purpose. I’ve been rethinking the activities I do for the past month. And paying attention to the weaving energy of the year so far. I know that the Divine Feminine creative energy has been surrounding me. But have I used it wisely so far? This is about recognising what work will bring me passion and lock me in to more of the loving vibration. Because if I do what I love that positive flow of energy will be shared with all the people I connect with. Yet the niggles of this week have brought their share of wobbles to. Uncertainty replaced sharpness for a short while.
Now I have been able to step out of the rush of life I can apply the sharpness of vision I require. I really do know where I am going. Because I am listening to my intuition. To my heart as it sings when I find the right things to do. My life has a point. It’s up to me to stick with it.
It’s New Moon energy. All day I’ve been sending out wishes and dreams so the energy of my desires will return to me. Yet I’ve also been aware of the Earth’s Archangels. They have come into every conversation and also into my meditation. I felt the pull of their grounding energy sinking me knee deep into Mother Earth.
On Sunday I am giving a talk about these interesting ArchAngels. They have been channelling through me for a long time. Filling my mind with challenging questions. And testing tasks. It’s taken me a while to get accustomed to their energy. As well as to their mind-set. But in everything they have given me there has been one loving push. That of getting me to ground myself in the Earth’s energy. Reminding me that if I have fallen to Earth then I have done so for a purpose. A purpose that requires grounding into and accepting the energy of this place. Like locking myself into the energy waves that are unique to this place.
I know grounding myself here on Earth has been hard. I’ve resisted being human quite a lot. I certainly didn’t want to find myself back here quite so quickly. Yet I volunteered. I wasn’t pushed. My reward has been to work with lots of people who felt the same as me. And to help them ‘click’ into their human lives. Or not. Because it is always a free will choice. At every step of the way I could have said no. Refused to do what was asked of me. Stopped the energy and ignored what I was being asked to do. I’m glad I haven’t done that. The ArchAngels have gifted me so much. Now in this time of New Moon wishes I know they want to give me more. All I have to do is ask for it. And be ready to receive it in return.
That’s the interesting thing about grounding though. I have all of my requirements met. Most of my dreams are already on their way in. But I feel the pain of the planet. So I am asking for others. For the planet, for the animals, for all of the people. I’m asking that the Earth’s ArchAngels help all of us to realise our full potential. That in doing so we discover the peace and contentment of sharing the energy together. As one whole, united Earth bathed in loving kindness.
I guess you could say I have been paying attention to Archangels ever since I first connected with Archangel Michael. It was a period in my life when I needed some serious, heavy duty support. To raise me above all of the negativity I felt I was drowning in. Of course, I wasn’t entirely sure he was an Archangel. Because I was mostly a sceptic.
I know about angels and archangels because of my upbringing and studies of world religions. They have been a thread through my life. I’ve called on them for help. Disbelieved that they exist. And hopped from one foot to the other about them being a figment of the human mind. Yet there was something intuitively right about the connection that began to form many years ago with an Energy Being who finally revealed himself as Archangel Michael. Although I took a long time to trust his presence. Or even to listen to his guidance. Yet when he finally channelled through me with my trance mediumship all my doubts fell away. If you have felt an angel inside your skin you will know what I mean.
After that experience it seemed I was ready to channel other Archangels. The ones who have been here, close to the Earth, for millennia. The Earth’s Guardian Archangels sent me on a rapid learning curve to understand all things angelic. It’s a good job Michael had already put so many interesting books in front of me. Because the Earth’s Archangels expected me to sit my exam and get a pass. So they crammed information in to me. I repeatedly asked for confirmation. If you have been reading my blogs you will know I am the eternal questioner. Trust is earned. So their contact and information had to be cross checked. I’m delighted to say that it was. Especially when I was sent more obscure books and lore about angels.
Now I have a wonderful flow of inspiration from the archangels. Every day they send me an interesting idea, an inspirational thought or a message to share with others. They hold me in their unconditional love. Especially at those times when I am making my own love conditional. And they continue to expand my knowledge. As well as stepping in and channelling their energy vibrations into the world. Is it time for ou to take another look at the angels and archangels in your life?
Still more leavings and joinings to go! Yesterday I wrote about the changes that have been happening. How I felt that letting things go was also bringing new things forward. Today it’s all been sunshine on a rainy day.
I woke up to the rain on my window. The clouds had arrived so the sky was gray. One of the changes in my Centre has been to stop renting out my healing room to other practitioners. I’ve been getting the signal from ArchAngel Parashiel, one of the Earth’s ArchAngels, that it’s time to offer his healing more widely. Today I got the push to get his room decorated. I’ve already had to order his new therapy bed. And reorganise what furniture is going to be in his room. As I stood looking at the colour charts in my local paint store he pointed to a bright, almost fluorescent green. What! Bright green, I thought. It’s a ray of sunshine he told me. Get it in silk not matt.
Enjoying a little chuckle to myself, these ArchAngels can be a bit insistent (make that bossy), I purchased the green paint. Yet when I started to paint the walls I understood at once. The colour has gone on a wall that catches the sunshine when it’s about. I saw immediately that the healing rays of the sun would bounce from the wall right onto the therapy bed. Clever ArchAngel! It might have been rainy outside but I could feel the warmth of the sun already and I’d only done a little bit of the painting. Now I have a peach and green room that reflects Parashiel’s warmth and healing love. No wonder he calls his healing a Balm.
I can’t wait for my first client on Monday to road test the sunshine for me. I’m sure there are going to be many happy people walking out of that room.
And Parashiel jumped in later this evening too. I’ve been getting some design work done for one of my new adventures. Chatting with Kirsten, my lovely graphic designer, I mentioned that I would need a logo for the Parashiel’s Balm healing. She started doodling as I mentioned the room colours and before we knew it there was Parashiel’s burst of sunshine captured on paper. How to design a logo on the back of a beer mat, so to speak. Of course it seemed obvious to both of us that he had already picked his colours. All I needed to give Kirsten was a little more information and it was done. Parashiel pushing me forward yet again.
I’ve grown used to being unsure until the relevant Energy Being speaks up. That’s because it happens such a lot. I love the way their beams of sunshine bounce around me. Bright inspirations drop in endlessly. All I have to do is ask. Then be listening for an answer. They don’t control me though. I have my own free will choice so I could have picked any colour of paint I wanted. It happens, however, that I agree with the choice that was made. I love my newly freshened room. It’s going to be a pleasure to work in there.
Only one little issue. ArchAngel Parashiel want some his energy painting hung on the wall. Currently the space is occupied by ArchAngel Arsheliel’s energy painting. Arsheliel doesn’t want to give way. We are in his month so he feels he should stay. I wonder who will be on the wall come Monday?
Although I had some readings to do today I also managed to spend a little bit of time peacefully painting. Like my writing, painting is a way for me to find another voice.
In a busy world it’s all too easy to get swamped by responsibilities. Carrying out the things I feel I should, must or ought to do. Of course if I find any of those things are not really what I want to do I may be too polite to say no. Of even feel the pressure of guilt getting me to say yes. It’s almost as if being able to peacefully go about doing the things I get most pleasure from is wrong. When I began writing every day it took me a while to shake the feeling that I ought to be spending the time doing something else for my business. If I could find an hour to write surely it should be about the accounts. Or looking at bills. Perhaps doing next year’s business plan. You see, the writing gave me pleasure. I enjoyed it – mostly. It’s strange really. Why do we think work has to be hard?
That’s an interesting question. When I was growing up the pressure was on getting a job. Any job. It was good if it was a job I could enjoy. But really my enjoyment or otherwise didn’t matter. A job would mean I could ‘pay my way’. That was the underlying assumption. I would become a contributing member of society. How long that attitude has stuck with me! As if my writing voice can’t add any value at all. So how much bigger the resistance to painting. Paintings only have value if you are a famous artist. Yet paintings can move people emotionally whether they are considered good or bad. The artist uses the paint as a different kind of voice.
Of course I no longer believe that paintings only have value when you are well known. I have learned that beauty is in the eye of the beholder even if I am the only one to see my paintings.
At my art table today I continued a painting I started last week. Peacefully dotting the paint here and there, getting my fingers involved, I had time to relax. Whatever is emerging on the canvas will be interesting to me. When I paint I am always open to the connection with the Energy Beings around me. I let them guide my hands. Although I may have an idea of what is being painted it often turns out my idea was only a little bit right. There is an energy building on top of the background. It is represented by the colours I have picked up and the way they are blended. I enjoy the feel of the paint on my fingers. I try not to influence the way I move my hands. The picture is birthing it’s own ‘voice’.
Today was about reminding me that work can be enjoyable. In fact I feel that I want to only work at what I enjoy. There are business tasks that are necessary but that’s not my work. That’s me with my admin hat on. When I am working I am writing, painting, connecting with Energy Beings and supporting others. Siting peacefully in Heber Street Spiritualist church this afternoon, with a little bit of paint still under my fingernails, I knew I was working in the best of all ways. The way that I enjoy. Each day I get to do things that I love. Who can ask for more than that? Don’t let your work become the way you pay your bills. Find what you enjoy and trust yourself enough to know that you can do that. If you do the Universe is there to send you enough abundance to pay all of your bills!
Mission: a task or job that someone is given to do; self imposed objective or purpose. I’ve been thinking about my mission today whilst writing about one of the Earth’s ArchAngels.
On the 21st of this month several years of work come to an end when the Earth’s ArchAngels online course is launched. As I channelled in the info from ArchAngel Nushiel today – she’s the first one to go live in public – I thought about the journey from there to here. I never expected that I would be bringing twelve ancient Energy Beings back into the public view. But it seems that was the task I was given. Many times I’ve laughed at myself inside my head hearing the words ” Your mission, Annie, should you choose to accept it is …” Just like the opening lines in the Mission Impossible series from the 1970’s (or if you are too young for that, the movies that have been made in the noughties).
It actually goes back long before they started to connect with me. When I started to develop my mediumship I found that I was being drawn to work in a state of altered consciousness, often called Trance or Transfiguration mediumship. This was something very new to me. I had to do a lot of reading to understand what my Guides were asking of me. Yet I also accepted working this way. The finer points of how it works are for another blog. The main reason for mentioning it is that during my Trance sessions I found I was connecting to Archangel Michael. As I developed that connection other Archangels stepped in. The group sitting with me took careful note of what was happening. We found that we were on a mission to get me used to higher energy beings.
It seemed somewhere along the line I had accepted a mission. There was a purpose in what I was doing even if I couldn’t see it completely.
Moving forward several years I met Jan Booth of Ostrich Angels. Together it seemed we were presented with a mission. Once again I was asked to channel though high energy beings. When I accepted that mission, probably not fully aware of the shape or demands of the task, we began to get all sorts of information and contacts. I have to say we had no idea what we were doing. Recalling the early prompts to do things I know we were going with the flow. It felt right to me. My experiences with the Archangels and Ascended Masters made it possible for me to recognise the energy vibrations of these new beings as being the same.
So we persevered in encouraging the connections. Though I know both of us had no idea what we were letting ourselves in for. It became our self imposed purpose to follow their lead. At times I wondered what we were doing. The Earth’s ArchAngels took up our time and energy with no apparent purpose. Yet the pull to follow this mission to it’s end was strong in me. I wanted to understand the why, what, where, how and when of these beings. It’s clear to me that although one phase has now ended there is another mission on it’s way in. I have only scratched the surface of their energy. They have only downloaded a small proportion of their Wysdom. There is much more to learn, discover and share with others.
My purpose in life has always been to teach. Not in the formal manner of an educator. Rather as someone who shares their experiences so others can try the same things too. The online course is a new way for me to do that. I’m looking forward to lots more channelled information and contact from the Earth’s ArchAngels. That way I can support those people who will be discovering the energy connections for the first time.
