The Hum of Angels

By: Gloria Marie

the hum of angels, scott mcknight, angels

Most of us believe in angels for three main reasons: references in the Bible, experience with angels and Christian art. In the Bible alone, there are over three hundred references to angels. “The Hum of Angels” is filled with hundreds of references from the Bible and real-life stories of people that encountered angels.

Scott McKnight, the author, believes that angels are messengers from God and that angels are active in our world and all around us even when we do not take notice of them. It was fascinating to read that not all angel experiences are the same. Most people see angels as the traditional figure dressed in white. However, other experience angles as human-like figures, a scent of some sort or a bright light.

Angels provide God’s presence by expressing God’s love, confirming God’s presence, and they bring God’s comfort. The many stories were fascinating. Angels provided comfort during death and rescued people. McKnight writes, “That angels are all around us even when we don’t take notice of them. We are wise to believe they surround us, rather than expect them to announce themselves.” They appear when God thinks something special is needed.

One story gave an example of a women that did not listen to the hum of angels. She was scheduled for a cosmetic surgery procedure. She had to keep delaying the time because her baby sitter was late and got a flat tire. The sitter finally arrived over two hours late and she had the procedure. Of course, it went into complications. The angels intercede, but, we must listen to the hum.

The core teaching from the Bible about angels:
God is Love.
All that God does is loving.
God sends angels to us because God loves us.

I recommend this book. It will fill you with hope and love and you will most likely pay attention for the hum of angels.

I received this book for Blogging for Books to write this review.

The Secret To Climbing Mountains

There is so much written about being mindful and staying in the moment. You are probably reading this and thinking, of course I stay in the moment. At work, you concentrate and get the job done. At home, you concentrate and do your chores, make dinner and take care of your family. At leisure, you may play an awesome match of tennis. However, are you mindful or just going through some rote, learned, and familiar experiences? To be mindful and present will give you the secret to climbing mountains.

That mountain may be out of your comfort zone. It may be taking on a new career. It may be trying a new sport. It may be doing what makes your heart sing and that requires that you stay in the present moment. It takes walking by faith not sight.

Walking by faith not sight.

Recently, I fell and broke two bones in my foot. It required surgery and I also needed to stay completely off my foot for at least two weeks possibly longer. I had all sorts of things planned including a trip and suddenly everything came to a halt. Just getting out of bed and getting dressed was an enormous feat. I have a daily spiritual practice and always thought I stayed in the present moment. And maybe I did, but, this new challenge was a whole new level of mindfulness.

If you want to climb a mountain, you need to go one pitch at a time. One rope at a time. When you finish one small climb, then you prepare for the next. You do not know what you will see on the top of the mountain. You cannot see beyond the peak as you climb. You go step by step.
With my broken foot, I was forced to go day by day. I did not know how I could function over the next several weeks. I took it one day at a time, just like climbing a mountain, one pitch at a time. I walked, or in my case, rode my scooter, by faith not sight.

How do you prepare for life challenges and they will come? The only way to survive is in the present moment. You can begin today to develop a practice that will only deepen with life challenges. These can be the rope you use to climb that mountain.

1. Pray daily. Ask for God’s Infinite Love, peace and harmony to surround you.
2. Repeat daily. Be Still and Know That I am God.
3. Practice deep abdominal breaths.
4. Clear your energy. Ask Michael the Archangel to protect you, use sage, open your windows, take salt baths.
5. Do something every day that brings you joy. Make a list and commit to incorporating one item into your life every day.

Walk by Faith Not Sight.

Miracles are Seen in Light

Miracles are seen in light. This statement is from “A Course in Miracles.” Miracles can and do occur in our life. But, we must remain in God’s light to experience the miracles.

What causes us to be in darkness? When we are filled with fear, when we are weak, and when we are doubtful, that is when we are in darkness. When we are in darkness, we are not putting our faith in God and any miracles will remain unseen. In darkness, we are putting our faith in our problems and in our fears, instead of in God.

We have the power to be strong, have faith and go to what we want. We have the power to instruct our mind and be in God’s light. That is when we walk and live in the light. God’s strength and love can become yours. Become a flashlight and remove the darkness.

We can remain in the light by quieting our minds every day. Spending at least ten minutes every day in meditation or prayer will allow you to leave your weakness behind. It will allow you to get in touch with your Inner Self that is perfectly created by God. By setting aside some quiet time, you will for a few moments, disconnect from the physical world and enter the realm where miracles occur.

Meditation will also allow you to undo any negative thoughts you may have about yourself.

I am not weak, but strong.
I am no helpless, but all powerful.
I am not limited, but unlimited.
I am not doubtful, but certain.
I cannot see in darkness, but in light.

Living in light is where we are meant to live and thrive. Turn on your flashlight and remove any darkness, that is when miracles will occur. Keep track of your miracles, write them in a journal. It will serve to remind you of God’s strength and love.

The Way of Abundance

By: Gloria Marie

gloria pierson, manifest abundance, the law of gratitude, faith and prayer

The way of abundance is through our words because they manifest into our lives. We are conditioned and brought up using phrases. Some of them are so ingrained into our sub-conscious mind that we may not even be aware of them. “Too good to be true.” “You have to work hard for your money.” “Money does not grow on trees.” “My luck won’t last.” “I am desperately looking for a new job.” Do any of these sound familiar?

Most of the time, we are not even aware of using phrases like these. The tape recordings in our minds are programmed for many years. But, once you become aware of your words and thoughts, you can begin to change them.

The examples I gave above will positively, absolutely manifest into your life, if you believe them and if you say them enough. Your wish is the Universes’ command. Instead of the above phrases, how about the following:

I am fully equipped for the Divine plan of my life; I am more than equal to the situation.

God works in unexpected and magic ways. I have perfect confidence in God.

I do not limit God by seeing limitation. With God all things are possible.

I am fearless in letting money go out, knowing God is my immediate and endless supply.

The above sentences help to put your confidence in God. With prayer and gratitude, you can change your beliefs and increase your faith. To believe is to have faith a thing is true. In the beginning a thing is belief, and if held to, it because faith. Believe and have faith in God’s invisible supply. Do not depend on only the visible supply of this Earth.

Recently, a friend of mine needed money for his son’s college tuition. For many months, he would complain how broke he was and that he had no money. He felt that he would only have the money for the tuition, if he could sell a property he owed. He was limiting his beliefs and the power and magic of God. Of course, the property did not sell and he was unable to pay the tuition. His wish was granted!

Start today to attach yourself to God. Let your wishes be granted in magical, unexpected ways.
