Believing in Angels is Empowering - Looking Up Newsletter

September 3rd, 2012
Looking Up Newsletter

Good morning,

Years ago, I had a lot of readers asking all kinds of questions about spirit guides and guardian angels. There were articles being written all over the Internet about this topic. Yahoo chat groups went on and on about it. Now, I don't hear anything about it anymore. I cannot remember the last time anyone mentioned angels or spirit guides to me. Does anyone out there still focus on such things? Did the angels all go silent or did we just get bored with them? Just wondering whatever became of it.


take care,
Skye Thomas

Feature Article of the Week:


The Power of Believing

This article is about a phenomenon I have observed. It is NOT about religion; so do not send hate mail. The phenomenon occurs regardless of what religious belief a person has chosen to embrace. For the sake of a universal voice, I am going to refer to angels rather than God, Goddess, Jesus, Mother Mary, Mohammed, Buddha, Aphrodite, Zeus, Allah, or any of the other entities that people pray to. Angels also will be used to cover the concepts of fairies, divas, sprites, the Tuatha de Danann, and all of the magical helpers of the cosmos. I am using the word 'angels' because as St. Thomas Aquinas said, "Angels transcend every religion, every philosophy, every creed. In fact angels have no religion as we know it...their existence precedes every religious system that has ever existed on earth." Remember that I write for a global audience with many different belief systems and I am trying to make a point without favoring, endorsing, or thumbing my nose at anyone else's religious belief systems. With that said... what is the phenomenon that I want to share with you today? There is an unexplainable magical power that comes from believing deep down in your heart of hearts that angels are real and that they are here to look after you. It does not matter if we ever prove that they are real or not. It is the belief that seems to trigger the magic.

What is the power that comes from believing in angels? We have all witnessed the power of prayer, especially in groups. We have seen loved ones heal from fatal illnesses. We have heard that angel voice whisper in our ear to avoid taking a flight before the plane crashed. We have transformed our lives simply through believing that a higher power was cheering us on. We have sobered up, found soulmates, and even earned a living by listening to the loving guidance that comes from our guardian angels. We have avoided pain, poverty, and sudden death by heeding their warnings. We have saved children, fed the hungry, and helped the dieing to transition over to the other side because we believed that is what our angels would have us do. We have learned what it really means to love one another because our angels told us that we needed to do so. We have learned how to say we are sorry and to really truly mean it because our angels told us it would make us stronger. We have learned universal laws like "do unto others as you would have done unto you," karma, "what comes around goes around," "live and let live," and "and it harm none, do what ye will." Why do all religions have some form of this rule? Because the angels want us to be free to explore life's mysteries and lessons, but to also be kind towards one another. Free Will is the name of the game here on earth. Thankfully we have the angels to look after us because we do not always do so well when left to our own devices. Nothing is more amazing than when miracles are performed in the name of angels. When we call on them for their help, guidance, and reassurances that we are doing the right thing and they send us a sign from the heavens that yes they are still there and yes they are still looking after us. Perhaps it is just the increased self-confidence mixed with a bit of serendipity, but magical amazing things do happen when we believe in angels.

How does the belief in angels create the power? Science can argue that it is the psychological effects created by faith that pushes us to search for signs of miracles. We believe they will happen, so we become more perceptive at a subconscious level, constantly searching and seeking for proof that our beliefs are valid. On some deeper level, we are choosing to ignore that which does not support our belief in angels. We only gather to our hearts that which verifies that angels really do exist. Clergy can argue that the fact that miracles happen is proof that whatever name and dogma they have given to the phenomena is absolutely true and real. How else can so many different religions be so completely positive that their particular version of heaven is real and proven? They argue that since the phenomenon exists, it proves that their explanation of the spirit world is valid. There are many holes in both theories. It does not seem to matter which form of god or goddess we pray to, we all have examples of beautiful magical results. Does that mean that we are all just psychologically tricking ourselves into performing our own miracles? Or does it mean that there is one god disguised as many different gods and goddesses so that everyone can relate on their own level? Does it mean that there are multiple entities at work and we have to pick and choose which one to pray to for each different topic? Even though Christians believe in one god, many of them also believe in patron saints that are in charge of different aspects of life. Is that so very different from the multiple Greek gods all answering to Zeus? Is that so different from the Pagan's beliefs? Are we even meant to find the real answers? Is mankind ever supposed to know 100% of the facts, the absolute truth, and without a doubt who or what it is that seems to work around, over, and through us? Personally, I don't care. I call them angels because it feels right and if that is the one true god's way of speaking to me, then so be it. Who am I to question how that creative life force chooses to express itself to me? Isn't that the point of blind faith? We cannot know for sure.

What can we do with the power that believing in angles can bring into our lives? We can transform ourselves from the inside. We can heal our childhood wounds with the help of angels. We can cure our bodies of many diseases. We can find creative outlets for the love that lies within our souls, expressing it through our daily works. With the belief in angels, we can detach ourselves from the need to force others to see things our way. We can trust that the angels know what they are doing and that they will touch the other person's heart in a way that is meaningful to them even if it seems stupid and wrong to us. Angels allow us to feel safe that mankind is not the very highest form of intelligence and that this is not as good as it gets in a cosmic sense. Please let there be someone or something in charge of my universe that is smarter, wiser, more loving, and more compassionate than those of us here on earth. What was it Jesus said? Something about only needing a mustard seed of faith to create miracles just as He was doing. Sounds like an angel's advice to me. Do angels ever come down in human form? Yes of course, we have heard the stories since the days of the caveman. Looking for something to believe in? Conduct yourself as if you were an angel, the rest will fall into place in its own perfect way.
