Angel Dimes of Hope

angels surround us

We all have angels in our lives.  Angels who have passed over to the other side often leave signs that their energy is still around us.  Indeed, while their physical bodies may be gone, their spirit lives on.  While there are many signs, the Dimes of Hope are one of those signs.

 

 

 

 

 

A friend of mine did not believe in heaven.  “There is one life on this earth and that was it.  We return to dust”, she told me years ago.  Then her mother, whom she adored, died.  All of a sudden dimes were showing up in the weirdest places.  For example one day when I was visiting her, she wiped off the kitchen table and then sat down to enjoy a cup of coffee.  A dime showed up on the just-wiped off table where she put her coffee mug. 

 

 

Apparently this grandmother used to stash dimes in her piggy bank.  When her grandchildren came to visit, she was always giving them dimes to buy themselves some penny candy or other little treat.  Grandma would take out a bunch of dimes to purchase those treats.  Her twelve children and many grandchildren associated dimes with Grandmother.  So it is natural that Grandmother would reach out to her family from life beyond this earth to reassure them that she was okay.  Her daughter became a believer of life after death.

 

 

The other day, another friend spotted a dime when I was with her.  She had recently moved and was stressed about the move to a new town and a new job.  Coincidentally she kept finding these dimes all around her new location.  She told me these dimes were being sent by her mother to reassure her it would be okay.  She said this was an old Irish belief system.

 

 

It is important to remember that when people we love die, they are just on the other side of the doorway.  Perhaps we can’t see them and perhaps we can.  My sensitive sister sees our father frequently when she needs to ask his advice on something.  This has reassured her immensely.  I don’t see people who have passed over, but I frequently will hear their voice with wise words whispering in my head.  I find it strange as I will catch glimpses of my animal friends who have moved to another world, but I don’t get to see people.  Other people will have them come in their dreams and appear as if they are very real and can be touched.  However the angels come to visit you, they are real and their message is clear.  There is life beyond this earthly life.   

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. Do you see angels who have passed over?
  2. Do you hear angels who have died?
  3. Do you dream of people who have left this earth?
  4. Do you smell the people’s unique smell when they are gone?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to being open to the angel messages.

 

 

If we had no winter,

the spring would not be so pleasant;

if we did not sometimes taste of adversity,

prosperity would not be so welcome.

(Anne Bradstreet)

Hugs and love from the Universe.

4 Love Notes to Bridge Life’s Loss!

Love notes to life!  Bridge that pain one day at a time.  Find life once again. It’s just on the other side of the bridge.  Love is the highest energy of the universe.  So find some form of love that will carry you across the bridge away from your painful emotions. 

 

 

 

Grief and loss is part of life’s journey. Sometimes our world is turned upside down seemingly in the blink of an eye.  Someone or a pet we love leaves us.  Our best friend won’t talk to us anymore. A job is suddenly over.  We move whether it’s across the city, across the country or across the world.   Our life circumstances change dramatically and we feel stressed.  Our world is no longer vibrant and alive.  In fact our world seems to be painted shades of gray and we are depressed. When any one of these life incidents happen to us, we need to take control of our emotions otherwise we can spiral emotionally downward pretty rapidly.

 

 

How can we stop that downward spiral?  Change the energy around you.  Empower yourself! Look in the mirror into your soul.  Your eyes are windows to your soul.  Say it 10 times in the morning.  Say it 10 times at lunch.  Say it 10 times before your go to bed.  Daily, tell yourself these 4 things until you feel better once again.  Repeat these affirmations throughout your day whenever you are feeling down.

 

  1. I love you. 
  2. I can do this. 
  3. Today is a new day. 
  4. I choose new energy around me.

 

Think of something you positively love doing.  Then choose one thing and force yourself to do it.  I know it’s not easy, but it stops the spinning down for today. Focus only on feeling better, just for today. Cross that bridge and start living life!

There are a thousand different paths to love.

Everyone will find his or her own way,

if s/he listens to his or her heart.

Rainbow Bridge to Love

Rainbow Bridge to Love

Lost Love Relationship Bridge

 

 

The loss of anything we hold dear is always an emotionally difficult time in our lives.  Loving your journey through that loss can be a mystery of emotional reactions.  Our sanitized world does not like our grief.  So we learn to internalize it and distance ourselves from the difficult feelings.  We have closed caskets so we don’t have to look upon the face of death.  We have funeral services broadcast over the internet so we don’t have to experience all that emotion.  We can view from a distance, but not get emotionally entangled in the feelings other people distastefully exhibit.  Yet, what we don’t realize is that by burying those emotions, by tunneling underground with those emotions, they will one day surface as bubbles of grief.  Then we are forced to deal with them.  The ghost of grief!   No, it’s better to deal with the loss or the grief-fear face on.

 

 

Native Americans, among many cultures, have it right according to grief and loss counseling and theory.  My native friends permit themselves to actively grieve.  In my part of the world, it is not uncommon for the entire community to shut down to honor the time of passing to another world or realm of consciousness. 

 

 

I have been grieving now for 4 months in anticipation of having to put my beloved grandmother dog to sleep.  She is not in any pain, but it is difficult for her to move forward, since her hind quarters don’t function well for her anymore.  It is fitting that with the onset of winter, she is choosing this time to depart from this world.  She has been the alpha female of my “wolf tribe” of dogs for several years.  Of all the dogs I have had in my long lifetime, she is the one I love the most. 

 

So how can I bridge my grief and loss with my love?  I’m a visual learner.  It helps me to see a picture of a bridge and to raise my consciousness as to what is truly happening here.  Spiritbird sent me this picture to help me love my grief journey.

 

This picture reminds me that the path across that bridge is pretty direct.  There is no getting lost.  The map of her journey is straightforward.  Yes, my world can continue to be colored gray or dismal if that is where I choose to focus my emotional energy.  Our emotions are represented by water in astrology and in dream analysis.  There will be ripples of emotion along the way.  But the emotion can also be soothing and calming to my soul’s journey if that is what I choose to focus on. 

 

But look more closely at the picture!  While the bridge to death is travelling overhead, underneath is a circle of light.  That light can be the focus of all the good feelings and events about my loss.  I simply have to reframe when I spiral down emotionally.  I can stop my downward spiral of emotions by recalling moments of joy I have experienced with the one I have lost.  Then I can recall the time we shared travelling together as a happy time instead of focusing on my pain, my loneliness and my fears.  Walk the journey of the spiral of your life into the light of consciousness.  You can change your direction of your energy.  You are the mistress of master of your own world!  Empower yourself!

4 Secrets to Alternative Healing Therapy

Many people have heard of the stages of grief and loss.  What they may not know is that step-by-step process happens when we lose anything we value in our lives.  Furthermore we may wander back to a previous stage for a time. It’s okay for you to feel sad or depressed at your loss.  It’s okay for you to cry.  At some point you come to the acceptance stage and are ready to begin your healing journey.  Here are some alternatives to help you to heal yourself more quickly.

 

 

1.       laughter – It’s impossible to have negative energy and positive energy at the same time.  When you increase the positive energy around you, it dilutes the negative energy.  Fill your world with positive energy!

 

2.     joy – moments even briefly throughout your day help begin to dilute your dwelling in the shadow world of pain.

 

3.     hugs – when we touch someone, or they touch us, we jointly share the other person’s energy.  It makes us feel better having shared our body energy with another.  It is comforting.  If you feel uncomfortable hugging a person, then hug a pet!

 

4.     listening ear of a trusted friend in your inner circle.  Once again it is the sharing of your feelings in one way or another that helps to dilute your pain.

 

Losing a loved one is never easy, no matter how long ago it was.  We will still have those bubbles of grief bubbling up at a smell, a song, a word, or a gesture that reminds us of the person we have lost.  Reframe and think of that person or pet as one of your personal angels watching over you.  I believe that my father is one of those angels in heaven looking over my shoulder and gently guiding me!

 

The universe sends the rain to the earth to help promote vibrant growth.  The rain washes away the dirt and muck or air pollution that has accumulated since the last rain.  Similarly, our tears help to wash away our dirt full of fears, loneliness and negative thoughts.  The tears help to change our energy. So welcome your personal liquid as part of your healing journey!  The Creator gave us the tools when we look to the natural world as part of our secret map to healing ourselves!

 

Reflection Questions

1.       laughter – what makes you belly laugh?  What brings a fleeting smile to your face?  What makes you grin from ear to ear?

3.     hugs – who do you feel comfortable exchanging body energy with?
