Angel Wisdom For A Brand New Start

      Today the Posse of Angels wishes to say, ‘Bon Voyage’ and have a great journey. And a lot of you may well be thinking, “Thanks Posse of Angels for the wishes, but where am I going?”
                        
     This past week’s Fall Equinox marked the significant date of harvest time and heralds a brand new start for those who have done the work. And no matter who you are, it is important to know that depending how much you have honored your journey, meaning how much you have cleared and cleansed negativity, forgiven others and adopted unconditional love in your heart, will determine what happens from this month onwards.   
     And The Posse of Angels is quick to chime in, “Did you think that you went through all those relationship challenges and struggles for nothing?  Did you think that the storms of financial hardships that we weathered in order to learn true abundance were for naught?  Did you think that this amazing journey of discovering who we authentically are was just something that happened, and not carefully orchestrated for a higher purpose??

     Well, it is precisely this higher purpose that will be presented to many of us who have diligently completed the above tasks, as we step into those magical events that will unfold, revealing the circumstances for our new beginnings and exactly what we will be harvesting.
     The Autumn Equinox marks the arrival of the season of Fall, which is traditionally seen as a period of great change. Now the Posse of Angels is saying that those who release all attachments and expectations, fully letting go as to how and when these new beginnings or opportunities will occur in our lives, will fully open the doors for limitless possibilities, magic and miracles to manifest.

     As we watch leaves fluttering to the ground in the fall, we are reminded that nature's cycles are mirrored in our lives. Autumn is traditionally the time for letting go and releasing things that have been a burden; as we allow Spirit to take charge of our lives. If we have been diligent in doing the above, The Posse of Angels is now emphasizing that all that we truly need to do is surrender for God and the angels to easily show us how to best serve ourselves and  the Planet.
      Much like a writer or painter feels God’s grace working through them to bring forth their creations, we need to let go and get out of the way so that the flow of the Divine can work through us and appear on the canvas of our lives. And because the Universe is always working for our highest good, this fall season will see many of us being presented with fresh new opportunities, tailor made by God, to be of best service in order to share our talents and gifts with the world.
   
     Having experienced the budding of new growth in the spring, to it's blossoming in the summer, autumn is a time of leaves falling and branches becoming bare. The Posse of Angels is saying that we are very much like those trees shedding off our leaves, as we chose to be spiritually bare; unencumbered and weighed down by the past to receive the new starts in our lives. And when friends or family members set off on a new journey, we often present them with gifts to make their trip more enjoyable.
        The Posse of Angels is saying that the greatest thing that they can give us at this point is not extra money, nor material things, as we have 'the where with all'  to manifest anything that we choose. And they wish to remind us that we have always had the power and the wisdom to negotiate a Divine journey. Many of us were like Dorothy Gale in setting off on our journeys in search of our own Oz or Home, to come full circle, realizing that we always had the power within ourselves. Yet like Dorothy, we never would have found our strength without all the challenges and struggles that tested our faith along the way.
     Their send-off gift, is an inspirational poem written by a gifted Metaphysical Teacher  Leonard Milgraum and his poem is entitled:


The Wisdom God Placed in Your Soul.

Whenever you stumble, or falter or fumble
Or fail to advance to your goal, Take a moment in prayer
And see past the despair, to the Wisdom God place in your Soul
When you’re cut or confused, and your ego is bruised
And you feel that you’re out of control, yet, this feelings not true
There’s a you, within you, it’s the wisdom God placed in your soul.
There are times you’re so low, there seems no place to go
Still, there’s one place you always can stroll, when there’s nowhere to hide,
You can just go inside, To the wisdom God placed in your Soul.
In the silence you’ll find, Peace beyond peace of mind
The courage to make yourself whole, it’s a counsel unique
That you don’t have to seek, it’s the wisdom God placed in your soul
Only few come to know, that gratuitous glow
From the knowledge of life’s’ earthly role, yet, we all get to try
To decipher the why, in the wisdom God placed in our soul.
by Leonard Milgraum
     As The Posse of Angels watches us step on to our new paths of being of service, they have a tear in their collective eye because they are so proud of how far we have come. And just like any proud guardian that has watched over, guided, and protected their much loved charges, they have some extra tidbits of loving advice to impart that will help us enormously; as we faithfully step forward.

1.         Once we get busy, it is important to remember to take time to do nothing and just be; as it often brings everything back into perspective. They are reminding us to take time to rest, relax and sit in silence to regenerate our souls. This is especially important to remember because after being quiet for so long, many of us will be raring to go full throttle and may experience burnout.
2.         Do not become attached to the expectation of what you want, for sometimes you have to forget what you want in order to remember what you so richly deserve.
3.         As your fortunes increase and your financial strength grows remember to use that strength and abundance to lift others up. Pay it forward.
4.         Remember the trust in ourselves that got us to this point of a new start, and to not be afraid to take that leap of faith; for you have nothing to lose but your fear.
5.         Remember to be your remarkable self and not a carbon copy of anyone else.
6.         Remember that knowledge comes from learning and that wisdom comes from living it.
7.         After you have set your heartfelt intentions, all that is required for success is a vision of a destination. The journey itself will reveal the means that will open up the way to take you there.

Keep trusting and have faith in yourself and the journey will keep on revealing itself.

Happy New Journey!

"YOU CANNOT FAIL"

          I recently had a conversation with a former client and very dear friend who was in despair as his faith in himself had become shaky, making him lose hope. This gentleman is a brilliant speaker, a wonderful writer and his international workshops have helped people to transform their lives through the power of love. Yet because he does not choose to have a ‘normal’ or ‘conventional’ job, he has incurred judgment from his family who have called him crazy to waste his time on helping others. What prompted our conversation was that his parents called him and told him that he was a failure.
         The first thing that the Posse of Angels did when they heard the word ‘failure’ was to laugh. And they explained that if we really knew how powerful, limitless, and multi-dimensional that we are, we would realize that we are created by the loving hand of God to be magical alchemists that can create our worlds.
          I asked this friend if he agreed with his parents’ conclusion that what he was doing was a waste of time. He said that while following his hearts’ longing to be a presenter had been financially hard, every time he spoke as a motivational speaker it made him feel alive.

          He described that when he was scheduled to speak, he would be guided to not prepare anything. And yet when he stood up to present, he felt that God was speaking through him; as he easily brought forth the perfect words filled with inspiration, pathos and his talks were even sprinkled with comedic moments and jokes. I asked him what some of the responses had been over the years of sharing his unique gifts.
          He told me that people were so affected during his presentations, that many experienced huge heart openings and could clearly see their beauty within. He shared that many of the participants became conscious that the story that they had been choosing to tell themselves was simply not true and it was merely an illusion. They finally decided to acknowledge their power by changing the sad stories that they had chosen to believe in, and instead exchanged them with new stories of peace, joy and self-love.
          I then asked this dear friend if the results of his using his passion, gifts and talents as a presenter sounded as if he was a failure. He laughed and replied, “Not only am I not a failure, but to even consider doing anything else would be dishonoring to who I am”.

           So where did his parents get the concept that this inspirational friend of mine had failed? Well, the concept of failure, like many things. is not real and it is just a matter of opinion and perception. Failure is dependent on some benchmark of achievement and success that others deem is right for our lives. If his parents are calling him a failure because he is not making a certain salary, not driving a particular type of car, not wearing designer clothes, not owning his own home, and not following the status quo, then through their eyes and by their yard stick, he has definitely failed.
          There are decades of generations that have been brainwashed to believe that “Life is a struggle” and that “Life was never meant to be easy”. This way of thinking saw many people too afraid to explore and pursue a passion. Stopping themselves from developing a creative idea or pursuing the joy in their hearts saw many following the opinion of others by doing jobs that were soul destroying. After a while the accumulated energies of discontentment became so toxic, that in order to function on a day to day basis, many chose to hide. And whether they chose to escape their overwhelming sadness with alcohol, drugs, shopping, involvement in empty relationships, or other forms of medication, it provided a much too small band aid for a much larger wound.
            The Posse of Angels is saying that, 'YOU CANNOT FAIL'. And they want to repeat it for emphasis, 'YOU CANNOT FAIL!'
           They want to make it very clear that in order to fail, you have to have something to fail at and they are assuring us that there is nothing to fail at.
        
            They are reminding you that when you wrote your contract with the Etheric council on what lessons you would be presented with in this human incarnation, your contract provided a mere guide line for you to use your free will to make decisions. When you would make your decisions, they would never be marked as a pass or fail, good or bad. or right or wrong. They were only choices that brought about consequences, as all choices inevitably do. And when each one of us arrives across the veil in non-physical form and we have our life’s review, there is no judgment at all…zero, ziltch, nada, niente,……NONE!! Therefore, there is no failure!
          Only on our Planet do many feel fit to judge others as to what they should do, have to do, or ought to be doing. The Posse of Angels is drawing your attention to the word doing and they wish to remind us that the reason that we cannot fail is that we are not here to do anything. The act of doing is the old paradigm way of existing on our Planet that saw us generating by ourselves in order to bring about an expected outcome. When we were at a lower dimensional frequency, we only had the capacity to connect with our analytical, logical and rational mind. This made life very hard as we pushed and controlled for things to happen in certain ways.
         Once we open up to being unlimited potential, and not held by our thinking physical brain, we begin to raise our energetic frequencies, expand our consciousness and we are able to access a higher enlightened awareness by allowing ourselves to just be.

          When we are in this state of being and connect with our hearts, we feel abundant and motivated as we connect to our Divine eternal natures. It is through our hearts and not our minds that we connect with God working through us. The more we allow the seeds of our passion and unique gifts to blossom, that God has already planted within us, the more we allow a co-creative dance to bring forth the synchronicities, miracles and magic to help us take inspired action and live this passion. This is the reason why you are here.
          And whether that passion manifests as an overwhelming urge to write, to sing, to draw, or to be an inspirational speaker, like my cherished friend who was told he is a failure, it is through these heart-driven desires that will fuel our abundance within. Filled with the richness and wealth of abundance, each of us will emanate very new energies as passionate, ‘ALIVE’ human beings that will go on to create a very new age on our beloved Planet Earth.

Love and Angel Blessings,

'Robin Williams, You and Me-Making A Difference In The World'

     With the news that sent shock waves across our Planet, The Posse of Angels wishes to share with us that Robin Williams’ crossing over was in no way untimely; as each of us decides when and how we wish to exit the contract of our physical incarnation. The Posse of Angels wish to share with us the higher message contained in his passing, and how extraordinarily well-timed it was because of what many are currently feeling.
     In truth, many people are so weary, exhausted, and fed-up because of the level of violence and conflict that still exists on our beloved Planet. In addition to this, many of us have not seen the tangible, physical signs on how we can move forward with our lives; in order to share our gifts and talents with the world. This has made many Light workers and those who are living a conscious life of awareness lose heart and to question that with all of our efforts, if we even make a difference at all to this world.

     The Posse of Angels wishes to share that Robin William’s death was synchronistically timed in order for everyone to be made aware of the importance of one life-one life lived in true authenticity-and how it can affect so many people on the Planet. By sharing one’s gifts, talents and generosity with others, it is unbelievable how each one of us goes on to touch the lives of so many people that we know. And even more remarkable, is that we touch and influence the lives of those people whom we never have met.
     If you never met Robin Williams and yet, your heart and breath momentarily suspended upon hearing the news of his passing, then your life was touched in some way by this extraordinary actor, humanitarian, and generous kindhearted soul.

     The message contained in Robin Williams well timed crossing over is this:

      “Never ever forget that your individual spirit is unique and one of a kind. Always remember that you are such a special integral puzzle piece of the Planet that without you the grand design of the Earth’s ascension will not be the same. The Posse of Angels is saying that if there weren't any need for your special brand of individual energy to be on this Planet, than you wouldn't be here. You are not here by happenchance and you were actually chosen from billions of souls to participate in the ascension of our beloved Planet Earth.
     The angels are lovingly wrapping their arms around each of you saying, “Do not forget that no matter how overwhelming life's struggles seem to be, one person can not only make a difference in the world, but that one person can make all the difference and be the world to another person.” They wish to remind us that it is often because of one person that enormous changes come about in our world; one has only to look at Mohandas Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa and now Robin Williams. You are no different to any of these souls as the Universe is within you and just like them you are here to make a difference.”

     This enormous wake-up call of making a difference probably would not have happened had Robin Williams not crossed over. If he had lived, many of us would have gone on to marvel at his comic genius, laughed and cried at his movies, but not with the same depth that we are feeling now. In much the same way when someone is always there, we don’t give it our full attention. Yet, when they are gone, we really take notice as it leaves an indelible mark and such a vast enormous hole in our hearts and in our lives.
     In many ways, Robin Williams crossing reminded me of when the crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin died in 2006; from a fatal stab wound to his heart by a gentle sting ray. Steve worked tirelessly to bring environmentalism and animal protection to the forefront of our world. But as long as he was on the Planet, many others took a back seat; for they knew that the animals were in his very capable hands.

     But with his passing, suddenly this larger than life character that endeared us with his passion, his enthusiasm and his call of ‘Crikey’ was gone; and with him, exited a huge ball of energy from the Planet. This had to happen in order for others to step forward and get involved. With his death highlighting a new awareness for how important it is to stop destroying animals’ habitats, massive amounts of people got involved.
     The Posse of Angles is acknowledging that many light workers are fed up and weary and many have said that they wish to go Home. With Robin Williams choosing to take his own life at this crucial moment of the Planet’s ascension, we get to experience firsthand at a visceral, gut wrenching level what that would feel like if we did choose to leave our human incarnation. The repercussions and shock waves that would be sent out into the Universe would be enormous. This is because you are the Universe.

     One of the greatest movies that portrayed our importance to others is my favorite Christmas movie ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. When Jimmy Stewart wishes that he was not born, his wish is granted by an angel and everything changes in the lives of every person that he has ever known. In addition, everything changed in the lives of the people that they knew. This then set off a chain reaction that went on and on and on.
     The Posse of Angels reminds us that we come into this human incarnation with a complete tool kit to build, to navigate, and to form our lives perfectly. And while it may appear that some people have more things in their tool kit like money, resources, more connections, more time etc. we each have exactly what our individual soul needs to make a difference on the Planet with our special unique blend of being exactly who we are.

     And creating a difference in the world has nothing to do with the amount of time that we contract to be here in human form. When I was feeling sad that Robin Williams would not get to play other amazing roles, I tuned in to see if he had any regrets on leaving when he did. When he spoke, he spoke through the Posse of Angels.
     He reminded us that when the majority of souls cross over from human flesh to spirit and review their lives, very few of them have regrets for things that they did not achieve. He went on to explain that since we are infinite beings, with limitless possibilities to create, if we did start having regrets for the things that we did not achieve, we would be eternally sad because we never ever be able to accomplish all the things that we wished to do. The Posse of Angels were quick to add that the one thing that souls regretted the most when they crossed over, was not whether they achieved anything; but is was whether or not they tried.

     From the movie Jack, Robin Williams words touch many us deeply when he says: “Please, don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day, make a wish, and think of me. Make your life spectacular.” - Jack

     Robin Williams’s greatest gift in making a difference in the world was to show us how much he tried. And by trying, he made his world, and ours, spectacular. By trying, he, and so many of us, went on to experience his brand of unique magic and just what one person’s efforts achieved in making such an enormous difference in our world. Just like Robin, you are here to make a difference in the world.

Follow Your Amazing Inner Barometer of Intuition

The Posse of Angels wishes to remind everyone, and they do mean everybody, that we all have intuitive abilities. This is not just relegated to those who call themselves clairvoyants, and one does not have to utilize it through a professional business in order to benefit from acting upon their intuition. If we follow this God given inner barometer, our lives go from a constant effort of struggle and control, to one of allowance and ease. So, if listening to our intuition and acting upon it will help our lives flow and bring outcomes more incredible than our rationalizing minds could ever conjure up, why do many people tend to discount their intuition? The Posse of Angels is saying that most of the world was programmed to think with their heads and not their hearts. I am sure that many, like me, have experienced situations where our intuition told us to do something and then we chose to not follow it. And in the end, we may have experienced an outcome that was not wholly satisfying; as it seemed more like a compromise, and less than what we truly desired. In many instances, people do not follow their intuition because to do so would make them appear very different from others who follow the rules and go about their lives in very logical ways. It isn’t always easy to go against the expected ways of living. But I can tell you personally, that having lived this way for the past 11 years, my husband and I have listened and stepped forward solely when we heard the voice of God speaking in our hearts: as He showed us the signs as to where to live and what actions to take. As a result, we have experienced magical synchronicities that have lead us to live in amazing places, and meet incredible connections that have presented opportunities to further the fulfillment of our dreams. And while I have experienced countless miraculous stories as a result of following my intuition, one of my favorite examples came about four months before I met my beloved husband Pete. You see in the four years leading up to January 2003, I was going through the darkest times of my life. Anorexic and devoid of all hope, I prayed for God to end the pain and darkness. His answer to my prayer came in the form of my Walk-In experience and spiritual awakening; as I remembered my Divine eternal nature once again. By reconnecting to the Divine within myself, I acknowledged, honored and respected who I was. In doing so, I was able to clearly discern the voice of God speaking through my heart as to how to be of best service to myself and others. Wishing to have a beloved cherished partner to walk this path of service, I felt compelled to write a Decree to God thanking Him for my Twin-Flame Relationship. I not only wrote his characteristics but that we were the best of friends, nothing was more important than our relationship, we traveled the world together, we worked together and he treated me like his princess. After I finished writing this Decree, I saw it as a sacred pact with God and I slept with it under my pillow and read it out morning and night. And as I read it out loud, I didn’t ask God for my Twin-Flame, but I thanked Him for my beloved because I knew that he was already mine; even though he had not manifested in the physical as yet. After about 6 weeks of doing this every day, I could energetically feel him with me and I felt like the time was drawing near that we would meet. In that week that I began to feel his presence, I had just started to look for a financial advisor and I synchronistically bumped into a dear friend who I had not seen for a very long time. When I mentioned my search, she got very excited and highly recommended her financial advisor; who I then contacted and set up a meeting with. A few hours before the appointment, the advisor called, and asked me if I minded driving out closer to his office as he had a very tight schedule that day. As his office was almost an hour away, I was going to reschedule for another time, but immediately, my intuition told me to drive out to meet him. We agreed that we would meet at a cafĂ© next to a new shopping center not far from his office. After my appointment was over, I had a strong urge to check out this new, unexplored center. As I entered the mall, I looked at the directory and saw that most of the stores were on the higher levels. Walking into the elevator, I felt that something was pressing me to go down to the basement. As the elevator door opened onto the basement, I saw that this level contained services like the Post Office, Health Services, a Bank, and a Pharmacy. It was then that I saw a small sign that had arrows pointing around a corner and it read, ‘Your Divine Destiny’. Upon reading the sign, I received shivers up and down my spine as confirmation of my intuition telling me to follow the arrows. At the end of the corridor, I saw Tibetan flags surrounding the entrance to a New Age shop. When I entered the store, the girl behind the counter said, “Hi, Mirabelle will be ready in just a minute for your reading.” Upon hearing the word reading, massive shivers shot through my body. All of a sudden, a large woman appeared, smiled and gestured for me to come over. Feeling as if some energetic force was drawing me over to her table, I sat down. She told me to pick 11 cards from her Tarot deck. As I was choosing the cards, she said, “You have undergone a great shift within” and her light green eyes seemed to be on fire. She then continued without even glancing at her cards, “You have come from another realm, the angelic realm and your mission is very grand.” Taking the cards that I had drawn, she looked at them, and smiled. “My dear sweet child, did you know that you are supposed to be meeting your Twin-Flame?” I smiled and said that I knew that he was coming. All of a sudden, a dark cloud seemed to appear on Mirabelle’s face, and it completely changed her expression. With great seriousness she said, “In your present condition, he will not be able to see you and your meeting will never take place. You hardly have any body fat on you, as you choose to not eat and live primarily in the etheric world. Your beloved is an Earth sign and you are of the Earth now and you must eat my dear child. Go home, fatten up, gain weight and then, and only then, will he be able to you see you and be attracted to your physical form.” Looking down at the cards again, she stressed in a very stern voice, “Heed their warning.” When I enquired as to whether there were any other messages they wished to give me, Mirabelle said, “You two have a very sacred mission of God indeed. Once you meet your Twin-Flame, all else will fall into place.” When I took out my wallet to pay her, she smiled and said, “There will be no charge.” From that moment on, I could not stop stuffing food into my mouth and slowly my skeletal form started to fill out. It was 6 weeks later that I was invited to attend a, “Come as your favorite rock star” party. I went as Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac and when the only Elvis at the party walked in, he grabbed a chair and put it at my table. We spoke for the next 5 hours and 5 days later he asked to marry me. Pete was everything that I had written in my Decree to God. The Posse of Angels is reminding us that they are constantly arranging and rearranging connections for us and then sending us signs as to how and when to step forward. By listening and acting upon our intuitions, we allow ourselves to take advantage of God and the angels’ heaven sent clues that will lead us to experience magic manifesting in our lives. P.S. I never did end up employing that financial advisor professionally, for his role was simply to draw me to that shopping center and for me to receive that fortuitous, heaven sent reading with Mirabelle.

Give Yourself Credit

The Posse of Angels has asked me several times, ‘Why are people so hard on themselves? And, why do they choose to focus their attention on what they haven’t done or how they could have done something better?’ As the majority of angels that make up my angelic family have not lived a human life, they have never had to experience duality. Seeing themselves only as Divine Source energy, they not only feel whole and complete, but they also feel joy as to what they accomplish. With their deep, profound connection to God, they know without a shadow of a doubt that whatever they achieve, or have not achieved is not only Divine, but it is perfection. Many of us were brought up to not to draw attention to our accomplishments and to underplay who we are. Whole generations were programmed to not draw attention to their gifts and abilities and to give themselves credit. Giving ourselves credit is something that is natural for all of us and we can see it in very young children. Their unbridled enthusiasm and openness is infectious. This willingness to share sees many of them quite candidly shouting out answers and excitedly waving their hands to be called upon. Unfortunately, this natural urge of wishing to share ourselves with others is often met with discouragement and we are taught to be quiet and to not make a fuss. This programming saw many us falling silent and resigned as we stifled our pride in ourselves. Yet, even though this Divine natural instinct of ours to give ourselves credit has remained dormant, it is something that can be encouraged to reawaken as I found out in 2008. With our move to the Monterey Bay area 6 years ago, I was synchronistically lead to join an organization called The Professional Women’s Networking group. Before each meeting, every member of the group was given 30 seconds on a stop-watch to state who they were and what they did. It was called an elevator speech. The significance of the name was that, if you met someone in an elevator and just had a fraction of time between floors to introduce yourself, what would you say? I found it interesting how the speeches fell into three distinct categories. 1) Those of us who were new to the elevator speech, started by stating our names and then began inserting ‘ums’ and some ‘errs’ and then basically crashed and burned as the buzzer went off. 2) There were those that knew their elevator speech. But as they were not very confident at publically acknowledging and giving themselves credit, they spoke in inaudible voices and haltingly. Even though this group of women recited the words perfectly, there was very little belief in themelves and their delivery did not carry much conviction. 3) And then there were the masters of the elevator speech. These verbal warriors stood like implacable, steadfast vigils delivering and enunciating who they were and what they did as if it was a creed written by the hand of God almighty himself. The confidence and assurance that they exuded, made the audience excited to find out more about them. And I marveled as not only did they manage to get all this information across in a nonchalant, confident, non-arrogant manner, but some of the gifted few even had time to wrap it all up by ending with their business’s signature quote. Desiring to be one of these elevator speech masters, I went home and practiced and by next month’s meeting I stood up, smiled and said with great confidence, "Hello my name is Claire Candy Hough and through my wonderful Healing Practice Angel Healing House I am a Licensed Reiki Master/Teacher, an Angel Practitioner, an International radio host a write and an author. I help clients improve their emotional and physical well-being, live lives of joy, peace and love so that they can go forth and fashion a beautiful life for themselves"! And all of this was said in under 30 seconds! The funny thing that I came to realize after saying this speech meeting after meeting, was that I really did not care if anyone got who I was, but how good I felt in acknowledging me. The Posse of Angels is laughing as they are reminding us that giving ourselves credit doesn’t involve inflated egos, puffing out our chest and strutting around like roosters, crowing about what we’ve done in order to get recognition. It is merely the open acknowledgement of our individual capabilities, and the deep knowing that our efforts and accomplishments do make a difference as they hold special meaning for the betterment of the Universe. As so many of us have been programmed to be human doings and not human beings, we have received a lot of our recognition and attention from doing things. Because of this, the very minute that we accomplish a task, we instantly set our attention on the next task to be done. By taking time to pat ourselves on the back and really enjoy our achievements, we allow it to become part of who we are. The energy and resonance of achievement sends messages to our brain and body and actually fortifies the frequency of self-confidence and belief in ourselves. If we choose not to honor our accomplishments, we will always be on a hamster wheel of perpetually adding things to endless lists, ticking them off and never really getting to the end. With this constant worry that there is always more to do, we do not give ourselves the much needed sense of…… I AM ENOUGH. The Posse of Angels is reminding us that before we incarnated in human form, our accomplishments were just things we chose to do; as there was nothing more attached to them. No grading scale, no comparisons, their certainly was no competition, no extra prizes or even extra money in our pay packets that were attached to anything that we did. By giving ourselves credit for what we have done, we are encouraged to try more things, be adventurous and experience more of life. And when we give ourselves permission to acknowledge our achievements, the Universe has a magical way of revealing more connections that provide us with even greater opportunities to be proud of ourselves.

Let Go of Fear and Live The Life Of Your Dreams

I don’t know about you, but I am very excited about this much spoken about month of April. For those of us who have honored and respected our lives, we will experience a magical month indeed. The Posse of Angels is reminding us that unexpected opportunities and connections will manifest in physical form in order for us to begin to fulfill our intentions of stepping forward into our dreams. And there is a big difference between those that take advantage of these connections, and those that let these chances go by. The difference is that those who will take advantage of the opportunities will allow their commitment to their dreams to be of greater consequence, than any fear that they may choose to have. The dictionary definition of fear is that it’s an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause us harm or pain, or is a threat. And if fear is a belief that we have had programmed and educated into us, then with our free will, we can choose to go beyond our fears and educate them out of our lives by simply not choosing to believe in them. And this is precisely what The Posse of Angels wishes to address today, letting go of fear in order to live our dreams. Choosing to be so committed to our heartfelt desires so that no fear whatsoever will stop us. Yet fear of stepping forward and sabotaging our dreams may not be obvious, as I helped a client of mine discover. A lovely client and Reiki student of mine is one of the most gifted and talented spiritual Teachers that I know. Several years ago, she experienced gang violence when she was shot and a Dr. told her that she would never walk again. Not liking her Doctors prognosis, she got a second, third, fourth and fifth opinion and each Doctor told her the same thing that she would not walk again. While speaking with her physical therapist , he told her that there was hope and a chance for her to walk again. Choosing to align herself with this hope, she went through grueling physical therapy. By not taking no for an answer and with her iron will and determination, she eventually walked again. And if walking again was not enough of a success, she is an inspiration as she has gone on to become a physical fitness trainer. She is a remarkable teacher because she has taken the hardships and adversities in her life, learned from them and gone on to affect her world; not with hatred, anger and revenge, but with great love, compassion and forgiveness. And even with overcoming this enormous physical challenge, because of her fear and long held issues around worthiness, she sabotages herself in a very sneaky way that stops her from stepping forth and being of service as a Teacher. She is constantly studying and taking course after course for ever more certifications to make herself ‘good enough’ to be a Teacher. Now, The Posse of Angels is reminding us that there is nothing wrong with bettering our minds, and learning things. But there does come a time when we must face our fears and know that we are well taught and have all we need to offer our gifts and abilities to others. What I find amazing is that she physically defied the medical Doctors and walked again and yet her fear of being worthy and measuring up stops her cold in her tracks when it comes to sharing her gifts with others as a Teacher. And I can understand exactly what my student is feeling because there was a time when I was also in fear of teaching. You see, in 2003, I had been well taught as a Reiki Master/Teacher and had established my Healing Practice for over a year, when I received a random call. The caller asked when I would be holding my next class to learn Reiki. As I gave Reiki healing and Intuitive Counseling sessions but had never taught Reiki before, I literally laughed into the phone and said, “Oh you don’t want me, you want my Master Teacher who lives about 2 hours away.” I then gave them her number and hung up. A few minutes later, I received another random call from another person who wanted to study Reiki with me. Again, I giggled and I thought how synchronistic and directed them to my Master Teacher. Well, when God and the Angels want us to do something, they are tenacious and will not give up and keep sending us signs. Over the next few days, I received more calls from people enquiring about studying Reiki with me. The penny finally dropped that a) the Universe was encouraging me to teach even though I had never taught Reiki before and b) that I would have the wherewithal to be a great Teacher. After attuning many hundreds of Reiki Master Teachers and Reiki Practitioners over the last 11 years, teaching Reiki is such a delight and absolute joy for me. But like with anything new, I had to start with my first student and get over my fear and just do it. And The Posse of Angels is nodding their heads and saying that having one’s dreams and stepping forward to living them are two very different things. Many people sabotage themselves from actually living their dreams because everything in their life is not quite right yet or in perfect order. One client of mine who was offered to be host on a TV program said, “I can’t possibly step forward yet, as I have so much more weight to lose.” And if we do play this game of waiting for everything to be perfect in order to live our dreams, it probably will never be the right time. The truth is that God doesn’t listen to what our ideas of how life needs to be before we can step forward into our dreams. He knows that the perfection already exists in the fact that the offering of those opportunities and connections were Divinely given to us. The Posse of Angels is assuring us that when opportunity comes knocking at your door, please know in that instance that you have all the expertise, courage, strength and wherewithal to step forward through that door and share your gifts with others, because God’s grace has allowed it to manifest and appear on your doorstep. And if God believes in me, and presents me with opportunity knocking, that is all the reassurance that I need to walk through the door and live the life of my dreams!

Allow Yourself To Be The Voice

With one of my favorite shows starting its’ 6th season, it reminded me of the wonderful opportunity that I was given to see it grow from its' very first show in the US, to becoming an award winning program. With my husband Pete having worked on the first 5 seasons of ‘The Voice’, he was able to get me tickets to many of the tapings. If you have not seen this wonderful show, it is quite different from other singing competitions; as the coaches, not judges, have their chairs faced away from the singers. In these Blind Auditions, things like age, dress, gender, and culture do not play a part in their selection as the coaches are solely choosing the contestants on their voice. Having been at the tapings season after season, I realized several consistent themes with this show. Firstly, I’ve watched these talented singers pursue what they passionately believe in. Each season there are several contestants who say that they used to have jobs other than singing, but by not pursuing what they love to do they felt as if a piece of them was missing. This feeling of not being whole had led many of them to quit jobs and pursue their music. When they were asked what their fall back choice was, they simply said that there is no fall back; for this is what made them feel alive. Having the courage and the conviction to be who we are is not always an easy path to follow. Many of these contestants sing for meager wages, and their families have had to sacrifice much. They endure whatever it takes for their talent and none of these hardships are enough to dissuade them from turning away from singing; turning away from whom they divinely are. This theme of enduring is not only relegated to sacrificing for the pursuit of their talent; as many of the contestants have also had to endure heartache and loss. Some have spoken about losing a parent to illness; many speak of having a life threatening disease or being bullied as a child. In each case, their suffering pushed them and made them even stronger. And for those who experienced a loved one who crossed over, they have seen just how precious life is and it made them even more determined not to compromise the pursuit of their dreams. And even though each contestant has their unique path that brought them to ‘The Voice’, once they get picked by a coach in the Blind Auditions, they begin anew on a level playing field. The thing that surprises me most about whether the singers continue to advance toward the finals has so much more to do with allowing themselves to be who they are, rather than having an incredible voice. This is so because everyone who gets through the elimination process to make it to the Blind Auditions already has a great voice. What I have been able to observe is that the difference in the contestants and the level of their performance is directly affected by how much they believe in themselves. This determines how much they will connect with the song and sprinkle their performance with magic. This intangible magical element that one may not be able to explain is something truly Divine when it happens. This magical moment tugs on our heart strings, as it stirs something deep inside of the listener. When the contestants practice their songs, coaches most often comment on whether or not the singer has connected with the song. And when the contestant has pressed their coach for more explanation, they simply say, “You just have to believe in yourself more.” In fact, when I have seen the really magical performances, the singer was not singing to be better than anyone else or even to sell more itunes. They were merely bringing forth their God given talent and being themselves. Just recently, when season’s 5 winner of The Voice, Tesanne Chin, was asked what it feels like when she sings, she simply stated, ‘I really don’t know, as something within me takes over and I almost feel like I am not there.” The Posse of Angels and I surmise that what she allows to take over is the grace of God coming through her as she uses her natural abilities. Allowing yourself to be who you are comes from a peaceful, deep knowing within, that you are a child of God and allowed to shine your own special brand of uniqueness. This illumination from within lights us up like Christmas bulbs and it gets the world’s attention. But the funny thing about allowing ourselves to be who we are is that we are not doing it to get attention. In fact, we are not doing it for the money, nor the recognition or the fame. For like Tesanne, we are allowing ourselves to be who we are divinely meant to be. The Posse of Angels is saying that there is nothing that you cannot accomplish, if you have the courage to allow yourself to voice who you are. If you have faith in your abilities, and remain determined and focused on what you love doing, then you allow the beauty of what you love, to be the beauty of what you do.” By allowing yourself to be The Voice you have an infinite number of ways that you can use this powerful instrument. You could be the Voice to bring light to injustice. You may use your Voice to help soothe, heal and bring more love to a world that has been ravaged by hatred and war. Or you may use your Voice, like I do, to empower others to reconnect with who they are in order to step forward and realize the fulfillment of their dreams. And unlike the show ‘The Voice’, life is not a competition that we have to out sing anyone in order to win. All we need to do is to honestly speak up and share our passion with others. And The Posse of Angels is reminding us that whether the contestants on ‘The Voice’ make it all the way to the final show and win the competition is not the overriding goal. Just by the mere fact that they are pursuing who they are, they are successful. For success is not to be measured so much by the position that one has reached in life; as by the challenges and obstacles which one has endured and overcome. Because the contestants have dared to believe in themselves and their talent, each one of their lives has been irrevocably changed. And as a result, their lives have grown so much grander and fuller then they ever could imagine and their world expanded in direct proportion to their courage to be 'The Voice' and pursue who they are. Until next month, go out and share your voice with the world!
