Do what you are called to do

After years of working with angels I truly know they love everyone, no matter what. They certainly do not say everyone's behaviors are loving, but they do love all souls. They see all souls as simply trying, to the best of their ability, to find God's love, whether they do so in a way that is evolved or completely ignorant. And so they love the protestors and the bankers, the victims and the perpetrators and they are more than willing to point out the lessons for all involved.

Years ago in my thirties when I was complaining about "God sending me" (in other words me attracting) two boyfriends in a row that easily took advantage of me and were abusive," the angels lovingly pointed out that my tendency to martry myself was a perfect fit for a sociopath to find a way into my life! We fit together like a hand and glove. I kept giving. They kept taking. I was willing to be abused while trying harder to be loved, they were willing to not try at all and to dump on me. Our lessons were a perfect marriage! Only when I started loving myself and treating myself with respect did I attract the absolutely amazing people that are in my life now. Likewise when I was willing to work 90 hour weeks in my past life as an engineer, the corporation was more than willing to let me. A friend who was not willing to do so, kept attracting better and higher paying consulting jobs. She knew she deserved it. We really do find each other to l earn what we need!

As a result of the angels' teaching, I have changed over the years. I no longer feel I must set my soul aside for love or money. It took time to learn to treat myself better. The changes do not happen overnight. In the case of my career it took a few years to bring changes about. In the case of relationships I put myself through a decade of tough lessons! But if you start treating yourself with more respect, then the world starts to show it. If you start to pray for a job that honors your soul, the ideas will start to come. If you treat yourself with greater kindness, you will walk away when others do not.

As I watch the news, I feel somewhat detached from all the unrest in the world. The greed in the world does indeed affect me - my utility bills were so insanely high this summer that I nearly passed out after opening one particularly large bill. I took a few breaths and asked the angels to put me back into a higher truth, and then or course truth hit me again - either I give the world my power, or I give it to God. I chose God. "Hey God," you've got some big bills. Tell me what to do next. Either I need to make more or get this utility bill down. My water heater prompty broke, because the heating coil was coated with barnacle looking things caused by hard water. It was inconvenient but a huge energy drain was revealed! I had to get a water softener to prevent this from being a persistent problem. That cost more money, but the company let me make payments and in the long run I'll have good water, better skin, less home maintenance, and lower ele ctric bills because the water heater will work. God can handle all your problems if you just pray and believe.

So, if you are called to protest, do so with love and with a desire to open up a humane and loving dialogue. But if you protest from a place of feeling that your lack is caused by others' greed, you give others all your power, and energetically you negate the very thing you are trying to achieve. It is hard to take responsibility for our own lives, but in the end, that is where we find the truth and the love of God. In this space, you have earned the right to speak up about the world's injustices, because in this loving space, you are simply wanting all souls involved to know that there can be solutions that honor everyone's needs... for that is the truth in God's reality.

The movement the angels wish to create upon the earth is simple - "Occupy your own life!" Fill your life with the love of your own spirit. Share your gifts and talents with the world. Speak your truth but do so from a place of love. If all of us could do that we would no longer support greed, injustice, etc. We would be living in a heaven on earth. It may be a far goal, but certainly one worth reaching for. It works for me :)
