 Share! Where are some places you’ve unexpectedly found your divine messengers?


  1. So true! A few months ago I was out walking and crossed paths with this homeless man. Normally I don’t make eye contact … You know safety concerns … Anyway I did this time for some reason. We made eye contact and he gave me the most luminous smile ever. No words were exchanged just smiles/nods but it was one of the most profound moments in my life.

    • A life-changing smile! Thank you for sharing your experience with the homeless man. How important for us all to hear the message.

  2. At Yoga once, years ago, I had a glimpse of “eternity” at the end of a guided meditation. Sheer bliss, a word I don’t often use, but that is the only way I can explain it. Angels?

    • What a beautiful experience that must have been for you, Geri. Yes, undoubtedly, angels guided you there and felt you were ready for the “glimpse of bliss” in that moment!

  3. Funny thing– I was driving home from your office today, thinking about my definition of God, which led me to think about this post. So, I’m sitting in my car, trying to define God and angels and how my ideas about “angels” must inform my ideas about God, and suddenly I see a man on the sidewalk (clearly the worse for wear) turn around and make several crosses in the air, as though he was trying to bless the people who had just passed him on the sidewalk. He just happened to be angled right toward my car, as well. Then he just turned and kept walking. I had to smile at the timing!

    • Erin! Good you caught the blessing of some random and disheveled stranger on the street at the same time you were deep in thought re your concept of God and how your divine messengers might show up! This is a meaningful story and I thank you for sharing.

  4. I am so fortunate to have several Angels in my life. My son, now 30 years-old has been the most dynamic Angel since his conception. For me he is the epitome of life. My oldest sister has been my Angel as an extension of my Mom. She has been my Angel of my roots. Through her I have a connection to all those of have gone before me.
    I have been blessed with 4 women through the last 10 years that have provided me with Strength, Compassion, as I never thought was possible from strangers and Guidance to help me
    get through this most difficult time in my life. And I look back thinking of you Heather, you’ve been my constant Angel of Spirit. You have kept that line of communication open and alert for me when I would become lost in myself. You are my reminder. You trigger the chimes of awareness that I often need, and for that and much more I Thank You.

    • Lee! We’ve been walking this path together, shoulder to shoulder, for many years now, and I value our long and steadfast connection. Thank you for a beautiful post. I love your expression, “…trigger the chimes of awareness.” Blessings to you and your angels! Love.

    I know this is a bit off from the other posts but I get this a bit when I pick up the dog poopies. My dogs live in the back yard. Every morning I clean up after them and this post and your post about mandalas goes through my head. I usually clean up during the morning, when the dew is still on the grass and the birds are singing. I walk in somewhat of a circle, going back and forth, dragging the small rake behind me. It seems a strange way to meditate but I’m surrounded by Angels at this time: birds singing, dogs watching, trees, dew on the grass, and a quietness that comes in the early morning.
