Do you believe in angels? Do you believe in guidance and help from the other side? I’ve always been a believer in possibilities while not always knowing if they truly existed because I couldn’t SEE them. I still believed in them, or perhaps I wanted them to be true, but I was a ‘show me’ girl, so until I could see, I would just have to believe in the possibility of the connection to something bigger than what I could see. I had dreams as a kid and even as an adult of loved ones gone. Some of the dreams were with full knowledge they were dead while others were as if they were still alive. I had dreams of my uncle Bob (dad’s brother) jokingly taunting me after his passing and other dreams of him telling me not to go somewhere. I dreamed of my grandma (dad’s mom) also telling me things. All of which was interesting and a little scary at times, but I still didn’t feel like I knew…until my dad died.
My dad died in May of 2006. He was diagnosed with a terminal illness and was given five years and left us within a few months of the diagnosis. I wasn’t ready! I don’t know that you are ever ready, but I knew I wasn’t. It was before I had started Positive Focus and most likely what had me take a deeper dive into the power of positivity and spiritual growth. He was my anchor in life. When the going got tough, Carol went to dad! He didn’t always agree with whatever I’d gotten myself into, but he always was there in full support to help guide me out of it. Unknowingly, I knew I needed that connection to the other side as that is where my dad now was. It wasn’t as if I set out to read books on how to be closer to my dad, but his death catapulted me into where I find myself today. At the time of his death, I was taking my first Science of Mind class. I was really enjoying the class, the teacher, and the other students. I missed class during the week of my dad’s funeral and when I returned, they had a very touching card and a plant to give me. What happened next, was my first sign from my dad. We were getting ready to take a break, and one of the students said she had to share something odd that had happened to her that night before class. She goes to the same restaurant each week before class and they always give her an after-dinner mint. That night, they gave her a small box of red hots and she found it very odd as this was May and not around Halloween. Red hots were the only type of candy my dad liked! A sign he was still with me. Over the years, I’ve had more experiences with my dad – especially when I’m really stressed about something. I used to only talk to him when I had a problem that he would have solved for me when he was alive. Now, I talk to him daily. Sometimes asking for help and sometimes just to remind him to hang out and show up.
Along with talking to my dad, I’ve learned to talk to my angels too. Just like dad, it started when I needed something or was stressed about something. Now, I try to make it a daily practice to remind them to hang out and show up for me.
Moving forward, I encourage you to start talking to your angels and loved ones by:
Being open to believing. As I said above, I believed in possibilities, but didn’t know if it were true until I had personal experiences. Be open to believing and ask your loved ones gone and angels to show you signs.
Asking for help. Whether it be a loved one now gone or an angel, let them know that you need help and then look for signs that they are answering.
Knowing who to ask. Of course, I talk to the Big U (God, Source, the Universe, etc.), and my dad, but knowing which Archangel to ask for guidance is helpful too. Although I must admit, I often just say all of you who can assist, please do so. 😊 My mentor and dear angel expert friend Sunny Dawn Johnston has a mini guide to the 7 Archangels that you can check out.
Mostly, I want you to feel supported from the angels above and the human angels in your life. The ones who are there to remind you how awesome and deserving you are to live life passionately and purposefully. Just like the song below says… I’ve been talking to my angels, and they say that it’s alright.
Until next time, the angels have your back.
Big Hugs and mucho love,
Carol (and daddio)
