What miracles this past year has brought to us at Unity! A year ago, we had not yet found the property on San Juan, yet we did have a deeply held vision for the possibility of a true home together. We all affirmed that in right and perfect time and in a way that was highest and best for all, our very own place would be made manifest. And on the infamous day of prophesy December 12, 2012, we made an offer within hours of the listing. It was truly our shifting into the anticipated new world in a very special way. By December 21, 2012, we celebrated the Winter Solstice with a Labyrinth Meditation just hours after finalizing the contract. And on April 5, 2012 we became the new owners of our own church home. Together, we opened to an unfolding miracle . . . we made a leap of faith to have our dreams come fully true . . . together a way was created to finance it in an amazing, loving way . . . and then as a spiritual family we began the caretaking of our new home and the creation of our own spiritual space.
Just before all of this transpired, True Heart had presented Unity with another banner to adorn our walls along with those of world spiritual traditions. This banner has a globe suspended in the center with an angel ascending and an angel descending ~ both with arms outstretched from the heavens toward the earth. We got in meditation that the two angels were very significant with their symbolism and message regarding Unity manifesting blessings for the community and our world. Kimberly Marooney’s Angel Blessings Deck brought wonderful insights.
The first angel is Archangel Michael who brings protection, strength, and power to hold always for ultimate good. His masculine energy reaching downward toward the earth is symbolic of the preservation of the Spiritual Destiny of every soul. It is the angelic energy of manifestation that empowers us to fulfill our soul calling individually and together. The Scripture that blesses us from Michael is “For He will give His angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways.” (Psalm 91:11)
The second angel is the Angel Fortuna who brings prosperity and manifest blessings at every level of being, especially in the physical plane. Her feminine energy reaching upward is symbolic of the universe’s support for the fulfillment of your Divine Plan. It is the angelic energy of manifestation that allows miracles to be made visible when living your highest potential. The Scripture that blesses us from Fortuna is “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well. (Matthew 6:33)
Empowered Spiritual Destiny and Fulfillment of Divine Plan . . . the two touchstones that abide in our sanctuary to remind us that we never walk alone. When we seek to do that which is ours to do for the betterment of all, we are protected and guided. When we consciously co-create a world that works for all, we are comforted and inspired.
Stories of angels fill the world’s spiritual traditions. Aristotle, Plato, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine, and Shakespeare all speak of angels. The Ancient Egyptians, Persian Zorastrians, Jews, Christians, Moslems, Hindus, Shintoists, and others all include angelic presences in their theology. There are over five hundred mentions of angels in the Bible where they are found in Genesis, the Gospels, the writings of Paul and Book of Revelations. In Jewish mysticism, it is said that every blade of grass has an angel bending over it to whisper “grow, grow, grow.”
Angels are a profound spiritual presence in our consciousness however we each may perceive them. They exist for some individuals as winged beings invisible to this world and yet abiding near us. For others, they take can take physical form to bring us protection, comfort, guidance and inspiration. For some, they are simply imaginings or artistic renderings. Pope Pious XII said everyone, however humble, had angels to watch over them. Charles Fillmore described them as divine forces active in the spiritually quickened. Whether they are God’s representatives in spirit or in body, they come to bless us. They are in us, around us, and beyond us. We need but ask for their assistance, and they respond lovingly, wisely and gracefully.
The coming Christmas season is a time when the mystics say the veil between spirit and matter is especially thin, and that the angels draw near to earth to bring us wonderful blessings. Just as they filled the night sky above the Nativity and sang Glory, Hallelujah ~ so they fill the world around us, ever reminding us that the world is more amazing that we sometimes think.
May you feel angels abiding near you this holiday season. May you realize the angels unawares that you may have entertained in the past year. May you invite the presence of the angels in all their forms to bless you in the coming days. May you know that you can be an “angel with skin on” for others as you follow the path of the Christ Light bringing that Divine Presence into our world in, through and as you.
There truly are angels all around . . . I behold them in all of you. Blessings!
