Hello dearest ones I am here at the bequest of my own dear sweet channel Joseph who has been being rather hard on himself these last few days. He wanted to know what I made of that – so here I am to tell you a little from an angel’s perspective.
Being kind to yourself is not a luxury or a thing to be done when you have the time, it is a necessity on the path to angelhood.
You are so hard on yourselves dearest ones, and I am here to tell you that right now it is time to give yourself a break. There is nothing in the world or indeed the universe that is worth the chastisements that you are currently giving yourselves.
You see you scold yourself as you would scold an errant young child and talk to yourself as you would your worst enemy. And to what avail? Does it make you feel good? Does it brighten your day? Does it enlighten your mood? No, it becomes a swift downward spiral into the grips of fear himself.
There are many times as an angel guarding your precious human ward when you wish to step in and stop what is about to happen, none more so when we see you reach for the stick to beat yourselves up. There is no joy in picking up that stick and yet how often you do so!
So I would offer you a little of my wisdom and a little of my humour too – firstly I would like to remind you that being human is a real bugger! There are so many ‘built in faults’ in the human mind, psyche and physical body that it is no wonder that sometimes you despair! So be a little kinder with yourselves and realise that the ‘human frailties’ that you were born with will always be there and therefore accept that is it just part of the deal of being human.
Say to yourself ‘‘Oops! There I go again exposing my human frailties! – Why I believe it is time to celebrate that fact with an ice cream or perhaps a bunch of flowers!’’ – how we angels will delight when there comes the time when you come home and greet your partners and loved ones with ‘’hey! You know I really had a great day exploring my human frailties today – so I think we are going out to celebrate what do you think?!’’ believe me when I say, that day WILL come.
Secondly might I remind you as I have often said before that there are NO LEDGERS IN HEAVEN. We do not keep score of all the mistakes that you perceive you have made, in fact if we were to keep any kind of ledger it would be the ledger of celebration and remembrance! For from where we stand all we see when you make a mistake or have forgotten is an opportunity to celebrate!
So let me give you a new mantra to remind yourself that in every forgetting is a remembrance waiting to happen! Next time you catch yourself having forgotten, when you have been caught in the drama of being human, rather than beat yourself up, congratulate yourself on remembering that you have forgotten.
Yes, that’s right, you heard me correctly – CELEBRATE THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE REMEMBERED YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN! –
Let every mishap and every forgetting be an opportunity to remember the truth of who you are. To reconnect with your angel self and celebrate in great joy!
If only you knew quite how much you were loved and held and supported, and how often we cheer you on from the sidelines. You are doing miraculous work! It is perfectly natural to slip sometimes – so forgive yourselves, let yourselves off the hook and be kind!
Oh.. And that stick that you use to beat yourself up? Might we suggest that instead of a stick you put feathers on each of the ends and transform it into a feather duster! – Go on, do it now while you are reading this! – Then even if you do pick up your stick it will only bring a tickle, much mirth and laughter! –
With all the universes love Emmanuel xxx
