Stay together, friends. Don’t scatter and sleep. Our friendship is made of being awake. – Rumi

A Story Told in the East

It seems God had just created human beings. Realizing that He made a terrible mistake, God called a council of the elders to get some help. When the elders were gathered, God reported, “I have just created humans and now I don’t know what I am going to do. They will always be talking to me and wanting things from me and I won’t ever get any rest.” Upon hearing God’s dilemma, the elders made several suggestions telling God he could hide on Mount Everest, or the moon, or deep in the Earth. God responded hopelessly to all of these suggestions saying, “No, humans are resourceful; eventually they will find me there.” Finally, one elder walked up to God and whispered something in his ear. Then God shouted in delight, “That’s it! I’ll hide inside each human; they will never find me there!”

Angel Gabriel


Two nights ago, during a sound healing event, I received a message from Angel Gabriel. The angel said to me, “Rejoice! Help is on the way.” So many times, I feel alone on this earth. I wonder, “Where are the celestial beings?”

There are many energies on this earth. We can not see the air, but it is an energy. There are many different forms of energy that are invisible to the human eye. In Western culture, we are not taught to see or feel celestial beings or spirits. In many tribal groups around the world, children are taught from a very young age to see and honor the spirits.

I come from a Catholic background, but I usually do not pray to angels. However, I am open to all loving, spirit energies. I am so grateful that I received a message from Angel Gabriel. We are in changing times. We need help to let go of the illusion of separateness and duality, understand everything as energy, and become our ultimate true nature as love.

During the sound healing event, the shaman played crystal bowls and Tibetan singing bowls of different sizes. She also played a gong and a rain stick. During the higher pitch singing bowl, I could feel the energy change in the room. The singing bowl sounded like a laser beam, and I imaged it eradicated my negative energy.

As I laid on the floor during the sound healing, I felt my awareness open up. I am no longer dormant or asleep. I felt the spirit world. We are not alone. 

It is time that we see the divine again. We must wake up!

Keep up your determination and spiritual willpower.

Help is on the way.

Namaste, world.
