Archangel Uriel, whose name means Fire of God, has been my close companion this week. Have you ever noticed how, when you’re “on fire” there’s always someone wanting to steal your spark?
I mentioned a few days ago how it feels to me as though spring has sprung and my mood and energy are dancing along nicely in the warmth of the sun, under these unseasonably blue skies occurring over South Yorkshire, UK. I’m inspired, joyful, filled with light and love and enthusiasm and what I’ve noticed is that everyone wants a little piece of it… That’s wonderful because it means they are recognising what they want and how good it appears to feel… the problem is, they want a piece of mine…
Now, I’m not mean and having siblings I was brought up knowing how to share, but did you know that this good feeling stuff is actually free and in abundance everywhere in the universe? People flock like moths to a candle flame when someone is full of light but there is always a danger of their flapping wings putting the candle out.
Archangel Uriel has been working relentlessly to maintain my inner glow and keep it burning at a steady and sustained rate… here’s how you can do it for yourself:
To get that spark going… Take your foot off the gas with whatever you’re doing and get busy with some day to day physical stuff, “chop wood, carry water” as the Chinese proverb goes. For me its gardening, baking, going out for a walk in nature (or just cleaning the bath, which for some reason is when I have my coolest ideas). It’s all about relinquishing control over the stuff that’s cluttering up your mind.
Fan the flames… learn something new. Six months ago I was so stressed because I had no idea how to create this site, I taught myself and when I got completely stuck, I asked one of those siblings for help to get me unstuck… but I didn’t ask him to do it for me, that’s the key you see, fanning the flames is about recognising little by little just how powerful you are. You can sit there and say “I don’t know how” or “I can’t” or you can say ” there’s a world full of information out there and anything is possible.” Once you make even the tiniest bit of progress or have a mini aha! moment, you’re on fire…
Protecting the flame… don’t let other people’s drama deplete your energy and don’t deny them their right to fan their flames. You may think you’re helping but you are simply creating dependency… show them the light and then let them fly towards the inextinguishable source of all light.
The fire is within you, so go on and stoke it… ask Archangel Uriel to help.
