The Letters Movie Review – Tribute to Mother Teresa

The Angelic Path Movie Review: The Letters 

Not many people know that, when I was a teenager, I had thoughts of becoming a nun.  Of course it would it have helped if I had been Catholic, but I was Presbyterian and we don’t have nuns.  And if I had ever voiced my opinion of about such a vocation, I would have never heard the end of it, as my Mother hated the Catholics (which is another long story for another time; essentially however it wasn’t her fault).

At any rate, I had thoughts of being cloistered away in some nunnery or at least doing good deeds for people.  Later as I explored my spiritual path, I found out that I had been a nun (and a monk!) in several past lifetimes, which no doubt helped with these thoughts of becoming a nun when I was teenager in this lifetime.

Today I watched the movie, “The Letters” which starred Juliet Stevenson as Mother Teresa.  The movie was about this wonderful woman’s life and how she was being considered to be a saint.  Apparently she wrote a series of letters throughout her lifetime as she moved from being a sister of the Loreto order in Calcutta, India in the 1930’s and 1940’s to the Reverend Mother of her own congregation in 1950’s.   She went on as an instrument of God serving the poor, the hungry, the unforgotten and the sick, accepting no credit but only insisting she was instrument of Christ and God.  She received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and remain steadfast this insistence, despite thousands, albeit millions of people wanting to give her credit for the works with the poor she had done over her lifetime.

The movie is very good, probably a bit too slow for many of today’s audiences, but none the less very important in its poetic justice to a woman of God many times over. I would encourage those of you who are so moved to see the film.

Many of spiritual folks who know about ascended masters believe that Mother Teresa is now an Ascended Master; I know she deserves that title as well as being beautified. I know very little about the woman beyond her reputation, most of us don’t and this movie helps clarify and tell her story. But her dedication and works have always fascinated me and I walked out of the movie with tears in my eyes, as I was deeply moved by her life story.

We should all strive for such love in our work and living with others, no matter whom, what or where they are in their lives. Mother Teresa is surely an instrument of God and personifies the works that Jesus is so credited with doing in his short lifetime.   We admire this woman for her dedication and her love and wish we all could rise to this measure within our own lifetimes.

And perhaps in a small way we each can, as we treat others with understanding and kindness, each and every day.  A simple smile, a helping hand goes a long way in this world.  A small gesture for sure, yet an important one and one that each of us can give every day.

The Angelic PathI have always been fascinated with Saint Francis of Assai; it is said that this quiet monk who loved man and animals alike is the one of the personas of Master Kuthumi.  As Master Kuthumi is one of my main guides and one of the Ascended Masters who I talk to regularly, perhaps this is why I find St. Francis so comforting.  I know I like the fact he cared deeply for animals, which of course, I do too.

During Mother Teresa’s thank you speech for her Nobel Peace Prize, she recited the Prayer of Peace which is most widely attributed to Saint Francis.  I am reproducing it here, as I was not really familiar with it; although I’m sure I’ve heard it before.

But during this film, I really heard it and understood it much more and of course, I grabbed the nearest napkin when Mother Theresa concluded her speech in the movie.  I hope you find this prayer helpful in your everyday quest to Hold the Light, walk the path of angels and give to others. In this turbulent time and in this season of love and peace, this simple prayer may be a worthwhile tool to use to remind us to keep the peace and to love one another, unconditionally as God does with us.

Prayer of Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.

O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.

As I finished this blog, I quickly did some internet research and found controversy surrounding the velocity of Mother Teresa’s work, the film, and the source of the Prayer of Peace.  Regardless, I stand by what I witnessed and felt today, based on my viewing of the film, “The Letters.”  If you decide to see this film, please note that the drama involved is minimal; this is not an action film, but rather a quiet contemplation of the woman called Mother Teresa, a saint to many in her lifetime.  And whose work from the Other Side continues today.

Prayer to the Angels

Dear Angels, God & Master Yeshua,

Hear my prayer as I proclaim the following and help me make it is:

I am at peace and all is well. I am safe and all is good. I am free. I am all that I desire to be. I am enjoying my journey. I am loved and I am safe. Divine wisdom guides me daily. I love life; I love my life. I am blessed in many ways. I am grateful for all by blessings. I am in perfect health. All my experiences allow me to grow and expand in harmony with my soul’s mission, and I am safe and fulfilled. Peace and harmony dwell within me. I am wealthy. Abundance flows easily to me and I gratefully receive my many blessings. I am capable of giving freely. I am happy and fulfilled. Thank you all for all my many blessings.


Best of Blogs: Numbers & Signs: Messages?

Are you finding the signs?  
How do numbers show up in your life?
Do they mean anything?

Lately I’ve seen the number 11 a lot, especially the time of 11:11.  I will look up and see these numbers on the clock at work, at home during the day or by my bedside.   I remember reading in Doreen Virtue’s book on angel numbers that the time of 11:11 (eleven after the hour of 11) meant that the angels were looking after me.  I always felt that was nice that the angels acknowledged that they were watching after me.  They let me know by nudging me to look at a clock at the right time, which they can do!

How are numbers showing up for you?

The angelic message is received and once again I’m reminded that I’m always surrounded by my loving watchful angels.  What numbers are showing up for you?

God provides us (or the Universe/Source/Goddess—whichever you prefer) signs along the way.  Of course, we have to interpret the signs and often don’t do so correctly.  But the first thing to acknowledge is that it is a sign.  Interesting number combinations is just one way of God sending us a message.

I have learned that the number 4 is the sign of the home.  This makes sense, if you think of a 4-sided box –which is often how we draw a house on a piece of paper when we are young.  I was looking for an apartment last summer, thinking I was moving out of the area and the apartment I was shown had a number combination that added up to 4!  (The apartment number was something like 112: 1+1+2).  So I was certain it was sign that my move would happen and this apartment was perfect for me.

It probably would have been—if indeed I had moved out to New York.  Instead I found an even better place in Wisconsin.  My house number?  9903 3rd Avenue – which is a lot of 9’s and 3’s, both which are powerful divine numbers (think the Trinity and pyramids).  So I knew that I right this time!  (It is a much nicer place then the apartment in NY).

Often we ask God or the Universe or even our angels for requests through prayers, etc.  Some of us get that they will always answer—it’s just a matter of deciphering the clues the Universe provides to us.  Some of us don’t even get that signs are a method of letting you know God is listening and your order is being processed.

Are you looking for the signs?
How well can you decipher the clues and solve the mystery? 
Are you grateful when you had your eureka moment? 

Remember – the signs are there.  Whether the signs show up for you as a song lyric, a set of numbers on a clock or an address, or a movie or TV conversation,  look for the signs coming to you in a set of 3 over a short period of time (a few days at most—perhaps 3?).

Tell us what sign mysteries have you uncovered lately?   What number show up for you on a regular basis?  How can you tell that you’re receiving signs?  We’d love to hear from you!

Leave us a comment and let us know how number show up for you!
And remember we’re here to help you unravel the mystery!

Love and Light Always,

Blake’s  home in Wisconsin is perfect for her.  She followed the signs and found her little home in the woods.  She’s  had some setbacks in the past, but pushed on, trusting the Universe would provide – which It did and always does, in all ways.

CEO: Prayer and Meditation Changed My Life

Illuminated EngagementsIt is always refreshing to me when I hear that a CEO discovers that prayer and meditation can be the key to a remarkable life.

It is a simple practice, really.  Yet we make it so complex sometimes.  Many of my students ask me about how to pray or how to meditate.  The article below helps explains this.  My philosophy is that the simple and the most direct way often will gain the best results — although that isn’t the only reason people prayer or should pray.  Although it probably is the most common.

Which is really OK.  But prayer can be much more than a direct request line to God or Divine Source.  It can open up channels in us for the divine to flow in a more productive way.

When we seek, we will find and every prayer is answered –in some form or other.  It may not be on our time table, for there may be wheels spinning in the background of our request that doesn’t concern us, but will lead to our answered prayers.

We don’t have to be concerned with the how of what is to be done; we must trust in the Universe that it will be and the outcome will be for our best benefit.

Read the article below and let us know how prayer and meditation has changed your life!

Thank you for allowing Blake and the Divine Guidance Team to help you live a remarkable life!

The Power of Prayer

Morgan of Illuminated EngagementsYesterday I took my beloved cat, Morgan to the vet, thinking he was on his last legs.  He didn’t look well at all and I believed I was taking him to be taken out of pain and have him join the angels.  Rarely, do I use my Facebook platform for personal use, but I couldn’t write my usual blog yesterday—so caught up was I with my cat’s illness.

On Facebook, I posted that I would like prayers and support for my cat—most light workers are animal lovers and they could sympathize my plight, as well as my cat’s.

This morning, the vet called—lo and behold—Morgan was improving!!  He wasn’t in renal failure as I suspected or thought (this is why I’m not a vet!)…instead he did have digestive problems and while he’s not out of the woods yet—the prognosis is one of life not death!

I am truly grateful and I truly believe that it was the support of the Facebook fans that provided prayer and support, along with family and friends that turned the tide on this situation.  So again, thank you to all who prayed over my cat’s health.

Scientific studies have shown that the power of prayer works.  The power of thought is now being harnessed and is a powerful force.  Words come from forth from these thoughts and they add to the vibration of thought.  Prayer, I believe, is thought magnified and directed and enhanced by powers unseen.

I was asked recently, why angels?  And I said because angels are a symbol of hope.  We all need hope, especially in today’s world.  This is why I teach people about angels.

Today, you are my angels—for with your kind thoughts and prayers my beloved cat is on the way to recovery.  I am humbly in true appreciation and thankfulness to all.

Keep the hope!  Keep believing!

With Love and Light Always,
