For years I have maintained a collection of the wonderful little tokens you see below. I gift them to people to whom I’m wanting to send extra doses of love. My aim is to provide a sense of peace during an especially trying time. Whether kept in a pocket, in a purse, or left out openly somewhere, it can’t hurt to have some heavenly mojo at the ready!
My friend John is a recipient of one of these angels. He keeps his with him, by this I mean on his person, and every once in a while when we’re together, he’ll pull out the contents of a pant’s pocket to show me his angel, which rests in the palm of his hand along with his change. He’s lost one or two along the way these many years, but replacements were quickly sent and all was right again with the world.
It’s nice to have and to hold a physical symbol of love/peace/healing. Such an object can help focus awareness; it can be a reminder that we are wrapped in love even though it may not feel like it at all. Though there are a great many challenges to be faced in life, I believe that the energy of the Universe surrounds us, its subtle hellos offering a respite from the chaos that confronts us.
Angels are thought of as spiritual beings, messengers that serve as intermediaries between the heavenly and human realms. Throughout history, works of art have depicted angels with halos, which represent the light and grace of divinity, a divinity, I believe, that also created us.
A great big remembrance of our own light can come in very small packages, and my hope is that the memo is well received! So, whether you have an angel in your pocket, a hug from a loved one, a kindness from a stranger, or a sighting of a dragonfly, allow it to connect you to the love that you are, these outer expressions reflecting your halo within!
