A New Year is Upon Us

The Angelic Path
The New Year is almost here!

2017 is upon us.  In just a few short days a new year will be here.  Numerological speaking it’s a “1” year for all – 2 +0+1+7=10; cross out the zero and you have “1”.  What does this mean?

“One” years are foundations for things to come over the next 10 years and new beginnings.  The old falls away and the new begins to take shape.

So what will the new year bring? In America, as well as many places around the world, new and different types of leaders are ushering in new and different types of leadership.  For those who can tolerate the changes, or even welcome those changes, this time can be very exciting.  For those who do not trust their leadership, this type can be upsetting, confusing, frustrating and a host of negatively charged vibrations and emotions.

How people react to the world around them will always set up their own emotional patterns and set the tone for any year.  For this upcoming year, the energies are added to by the new beginnings energies.  One should have this in their mind going forward. 

Change can be difficult for many and yet so many have asked for change.  New beginnings energies enhance 

The world is changing.

this change for new beginnings in and of itself are change.  So this upcoming year will be a year full of changes.

It will be doubly important for humans to take care of themselves physically, emotional and spiritual as a result of all of the new energies that swirl around.  It is best to separate yourselves from those that refuse to stop rocking the boat – not only globally but as local as your own personal life.

The more peace you allow into your life and purposeful intent, the better off you will be.

This means separating yourself from news stories that can and will upset you; remaining diligent in your own intentions, personal vows and aspirations and doubly down on being with people who uplift you  and situations that make your heart sing.

Reading biographies (or watching movies or inspirational TV or YouTube shows) on people who have come through adverse times and struggles may help you understand what change is all about.  Support groups may also help, as long as they are constructive and not destructive. Reading spiritual material and following spiritual people that resonate with you can also be helpful. 

It’s time to let go old energies including toxic people, jobs and other situations that do not lift your spirits, but degrade them.  Begin easing toxic and negative people out of your life by blessing them and sending them mentally on their way.  Ask Archangel Michael to cut their cords from you. 

The economy is now better for many; time to get additional training and/or schooling; re-edit your resume and start looking for new opportunities, if your job is toxic or not fulfilling.  Just switching jobs may help you in the long run, if your place is too toxic.  Remember in today’s current economy long-term jobs are a thing of the past.  Aim for short-term if you must or try your hand at entrepreneurship.  There are plenty of online and local community college courses business courses that you can take, that cost next to nothing.  Ask others how they got started for free advice.  People love to talk about themselves and what they do –take advantage of this pleasant fact. 

2017 is a year of new beginnings and new opportunities.  Avail yourself of the knowledge and opportunities out there.  Begin a new year journal and jot down daily your intentions, activities, reactions to previous day’s events and what you are looking forward to. 

You’ve heard every January that “This is Your Year”….but truly this is your year of “1” with new beginnings, new information and new activities.   Watch for your expectations to begin to manifest in your life in new, pleasantly unexpected ways – and as always, ask your angels for help, any time and in almost any way.  You simply have to ask and then look for the signs as newness appears before you.

Happy New Year!!!

With Love and Light Always,

Why Do We Celebrate the December Holidays?

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!

The snow storms are frequent this year, adding to a festive nature of the season.  Folks have strung colored lights on their homes and Christmas trees.  There is change in the air as snowflakes fly.

On TV there are plenty of cheer with seasonal favorites and at least two cable channels with ongoing Christmas-themed movies (Lifetime, Hallmark Channel Freeform). These shows all help to put us in the mood for the holiday season.  This year, unlike some years recent past, celebration of the season is strong.  But how did we land here in December with so many celebrations?   We have Christmas, Hanukah and Kwanzaa, Yuletide and several others.   Why is the season of light and love, of giving and receiving?

We have to look at the darkness of our nights that are falling earlier and earlier. Today, the winter solstice, the day when daylight is the shortest, is here beckoning the official start of the winter season and then the sunlight will start to shine forth again – our days will actually start getting longer again –although you won’t be able to tell until mid-January or even February.   Yuletide was the celebration of the season for the pre-Christians.  The honoring of the new light was the purpose of the ancient pagan festivities, and the start of this whole celebrating at this time year thing.

It is a symbolic time of year for many because of the diminishing sun, which is a natural phenomenon that has to do with astronomical occurrences. Three days after the winter solstice—the ancients noticed that the day wasn’t quite as dark and so they celebrated this phenomenon which eventually turned into a birthday for a pagan Sun god and which the early Christian Church took on as the day declared as the birth of Jesus the Christ, since they believed him to be the Son (Sun) of God (Light).

Today we celebrate this phenomenon with different holidays.  Yule is actually on the Winter Solstice; Hanukah celebrates when an oil lamp stayed lit for eight days– when there was only oil for one day.  As such it was considered a miracle.  Kwanzaa was adopted to honor the African-American home, family, honor, life, love and light.  All deal with light and love and good will and miracles.

Which is why for Christians, Christmas is so special – it is a reminder to us all that the Light is here for all of us to enjoy and take pleasure in. As light workers, we know the importance of Light, not only from our sun, but within our hearts. This is the Christ Light that we speak of – that Light of unconditional love and non-judgment for all –including ourselves. This is what Jesus of Nazareth was attempting to teach and that the resurrected Jesus the Christ attempts to emulate today. This is the season that we are reminded of the Spirit of Light and Love for all humankind, whoever we are and what ever our belief system is or isn’t.

This is why we celebrate with friends, family and food, laughter, gifts and song. It is more than just the birthday of a pagan sun god or the fictionalized birth of Jesus (biblical scholars agree he really wasn’t born at this day or even time of year). But it is a time to remember what Jesus, who I know as Master Yeshuah, was trying to teach us –to: do onto us as they would have done to you—be with peace and have goodwill towards all.

It’s time to remember –to awaken this holiday season and get into the mood that reminds to love one another and be kind to each other –at least for one holiday season of the year.

Merry Christmas!

With Light and Love Always,

Big Changes This Year of 2015

The Angelic Path
Merry Christmas!

Over the next two weeks, you’ll find our Best of Blogs as our Christmas season has begun.  Christmas is a time of light and love, to remind us of all the good we are capable of if we choose to go down that path. It’s a time to reflect upon the year behind us and see how far we’ve progressed in our expansion process or how little we’ve come.  This year was most interesting year — it certainly was a roller coaster ride!  We all seemed to have our ups and our downs.  How we cope with each one is important though.

If something ever-shifting didn’t happen to you this year of 2015,  I’d and the Team would be surprised.  It was a year of triumphs and tragedies.

I personally found my self stumped at every turn and found myself in a valley of defeat.  But God doesn’t keep us in the valleys forever — he eventually rises us up and this is what I’ve experience lately.  I’m moving out of the valley and back up into the mountains of victory!  I hope this year has been good to you; but know that it will be OK in the end, whatever your challenges may have been.

What will 2016 bring us?  Less of the same, I’m hoping for me personally.  I could use good news, peace, prosperity and contentment.  Remember to keep the faith whatever you’re challenges have been or are.  Remember to ask your angels for help, that’s what they are there for.   The Divine Guidance Team will be chiming in with their messages for 2016 soon.

For us here at the company, as you most of you know, we changed our name this year from the Illuminated Engagements Centre for Whole-Being to The Angelic Path.  We’ve updated our web site, brought you new Daily Messages from the Divine Guidance Team on Facebook and Weekly Angelic Messages from our newsletter site.  We’ve published our “Connecting with Nature’s Angels” book and released our “Entering Heaven’s Gate” CD about the afterlife.  We worked on a lot over at our Facebook page which under The Angelic Path, but still holds the old Illuminated Engagements name.

We’ve managed to get the blog subscribers and newsletter subscribers combined for the time being –which is why if this is your first blog from us, it’s because you were on a separate mailing list.  And vice versa.  Usually our blogs are more informative about many spiritual subjects.  Check out our library of blogs!

We’re planning more great books, audio and video recordings for the new year!  Be sure to watch for them.  We’re offering other products too such as gemstone pouches and perhaps note cards too.

Thank you for a glorious year!  We want to wish all of you a very blessed holiday season full of light and love, peace and joy for you and your family!  Without you we won’t be here—so thank you so much for reading our weekly blog and for being part of The Angelic Path family.  We have lots of stuff planned for 2016 – so stay tuned!

Merry Christmas,
Happy Holidays and Seasons Greetings!

See you next year!

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

First Thanksgiving
The pilgrims celebrated the First Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

How are you celebrating this holiday?
Will it be turkey again this year?
How are you appreciating your life?

One holiday season, I caught part of an old movie (Plymouth Adventure) that celebrated the pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock.  That ship ride apparently was a doozy.  Many perished on the trip here and with the first year.  The pilgrims were a brave bunch of folks and we have much to be grateful for as a result of their journey.  My Cahoon ancestry stretches back to the Mayflower; not sure which passenger anymore though.  I am proud of my heritage as a member of the founding families of America.

Thanksgiving Day was celebrated first by the Massachusetts Colony pilgrims in 1723 to celebrate the end of a long and hard drought.  Almost fifty years later, President George Washington declared it a national holiday in 1789 and it became an annual holiday throughout the United States in 1863.

On Thanksgiving Day, we still give thanks and honor those that came before us.  We honor those brave men and women who were pilgrims coming to this country for the first time and who survived the journey.  We express gratefulness and appreciate for the year that is almost behind us and all the blessings the year has bestowed upon us.  Thanksgiving Day is uniquely American (Canada has their own Thanksgiving Day) and we celebrate with parades, feasts and football.

happy_thanksgivingI happy I get to visit family for this Thanksgiving; this year the day falls on my birthday so it’s a double holiday for me!   I anticipate eating lots of great food and having at a wonderful time.   I intent to have a good time of celebration filled with laughter, family, delicious food and good cheer.  Indeed, I do appreciate this time of year and am so grateful for all my blessings.

We here at The Angelic Path want to give thanks to all of you who have been reading our blogs, providing comments and attending our events, classes and taken advantage of our other services too.  We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for wonderful folks who allow us to serve with such blessing.  So here’s to you and your family—thank you and we wish you all the very best this holiday season.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

With Great Gratitude and Appreciation,

Love and Light Always,

8 Tips to Keep Communication Open

During the holiday season, we all need to remember to communicate better.

How are you showing up when you talk with others?

Communication is key when you’re attempting to get your message across to others.  This is true for our jobs as well as our friendships, family relationships and loved ones relationships.  Too often we speak in vague, even abbreviated language to each other which lead to half-heard conversations and half-understood meanings.

Between our social media and our advertising billion dollar industry alone we are bombarded with misleading, propagandized and non-truthful messages all day long.

How much conversation do you truly have with another person anymore?

As a member of what I have long termed ‘corporate world’ I see this type of ‘non-communication’ communication all the time.   It takes email after email just to get a simple point across or a simple discussion to be had.  And half the time, employees are so much in a rush, they only half read the email at best.  And thus miscommunication – and misunderstanding is born.  I call this: ‘non-communication’ communication.

IMG_1947Parents of teenagers are well aware of ‘non-communication’ communication.  Ask a teen what he’s doing and he will shrug and probably said, “Nuthin’.”   Ask him a more direct question and she’ll answer or whine, “I don’t know,” followed often with a roll of their eyes.

That kind of behavior from my niece in her teenage years drove me nuts  — bless her patient mother!  I’m just now beginning to establish relations with my niece now that she’s now 65 years old!

Husbands and wives get into fights because they don’t communicate.  A grunt does not a conversation make.  A whine or a shrill voice will only make another shut down.  Walls are created when communications break down.

Suddenly you are like two countries –fighting about semantics and dealing with bruised egos.  Over what?  Is it really that important?  Or are we holding on to false belief systems that no longer serve us?

This upcoming week is Thanksgiving week — how are you and your loved ones plan to celebrate?  Will it start with good conversational habits?  Maybe it’s time to start communicating effectively.

Here’s are 8 communication tips to get started:

  •  Try to really stop and listen to each other.
  • Don’t attempt to figure out how you’re going to respond and what you’re going to say while the conversation in in play.  Listen and then form an opinion or response when it’s your turn to speak.
  • Gain clarity if a meaning is unclear.
  • Do it in a neutral tone.
  • Don’t get angry or frustrated.
  • If the conversation is important, write down salient points that can be discussed.
  • Learn to compromise.
  • Let your ego go and know you don’t always have to be right.

Communication is key to relationships – no matter who they are with.  Opening yourself up to good conversation etiquette can help you in your work, your family life, your love life and with your friends.

Be kind to yourself and others this holiday season and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

How are you communicating with others?
Do you practice good conversation etiquette?
Are your conversations working for or against you?

Share your communication practices with us and let’s learn together how to change habits for the better!  Practice allowing yourself to attract that which you desire and wish to manifest by learning from others.  It starts with you!   What are you telling the Universe?

Remember: The Universe always agrees with you.  What are you telling it?
