You are an angel!

 “Angel is a Greek word meaning ‘messenger.'”

angel-Don Jose Ruiz  
You are an angel – did you know that?  You are called to be a messenger.  In fact, that is what we are. What is the message we are bringing?  It is so easy to forget we are a messenger.  And if we are messengers, certainly our message is a high one. Anyone can bring a message of hatred or fear or just plain blah…But we are here to bring a message of Truth, of life!  This is a high calling and one that requires great awareness.  Here is the key to that awareness.  Look at your life and see who is in it.  Notice the kind of people that are in your world.  What is it they have in common?  It is that commonality that will tell you the message you are bringing to life.  This is fun to do and even challenging at times, because you may see things you aren’t interested in seeing.  But it will be a way for you to grow, for you to expand your soul.  Once you know the message you are bringing (especially if you don’t like it) you can change it!  Also notice how you treat yourself and that will be a wonderful clue to the message you are bringing.  Begin nurturing yourself more so you can live from this place of love and caring to others.
When you learn to act from the real you, the authentic self, or the soul of you, you will be a heavenly messenger!  When your life is about truth and supporting and uplifting others, you will be a heavenly messenger.
In light and love,

Moving Into Mastery!

Alice“…you finally have the awareness of what you are, but not with words. And because there are no words to explain what you are, you go back into peace, the place where you don’t need words to know
what you are.”
Don Jose Ruiz

Wasn’t there a time when you absolutely knew who you were? Here is a picture of me when I was kid. I absolutely knew who I was then. The innocence is so obvious, isn’t it? Wow – seeing this picture brought me back to the truth. I have always been connected to Spirit. I have always known the truth. It couldn’t be explained but I knew it – deep down inside. The Fifth Agreement reminds us of this. Each of us is the manifestation of God.

How old were you when you knew you knew God? How old were you when you knew you were connected? And connected to God yes, but everything. I remember times of going out into the woods and just being. I would listen to the birds and hear the crickets and see the light coming through the trees. I would hear the creek and watch the movement of the squirrels in the trees. I would be in that. I didn’t feel separate from it, but a part of it. This is the place we are all trying to get back to.

When did you first know you were connected? Let me hear your story! Post it on Facebook or send me an email to and please send me a picture! I would love to see your soul shining through you! The sharing of your story will help your soul remember. Remember that you are the manifestation of God!

roxanneFear creates the whole world of injustice and emotional drama, the whole nightmare that billions of people are living in.”
-Don Miguel Ruiz

That “nightmare” is the hell of the first attention we studied in the 9th chapter of The Fifth Agreement. I have been doing the homework I committed to on Sunday; when I have been irritated, aggravated, scared, or sad I have been taking a moment to BE AWARE of what I am afraid of; what lie I am telling myself.

One example: I told myself that I wasn’t going to be able to go to my niece’s wedding because I couldn’t afford it. In the next moment I reminded myself of the Truth; that God is my True Employer, my one and only True Source; and that Source is unlimited Abundance. Yesterday I went out on line and discovered that I had enough points to book the flight! Ha!

Happy Friday and blessings to you all,
