How to Find Angels in the Garbage

This article of mine first appeared on Susan Gregg's Angels on Your Shoulder's blog on Beliefnet.

I wanted to re-post it again here.

Have fun!

I know what you are thinking stinky trash and angels go together? Yes, they do! You see all of us around this planet have dealt with garbage being thrown at us and at times we question what is going on and how to keep having faith in anything divine or angelic. I'm here to tell you that angels especially LOVE the garbage filled times. That is when they can really show off their mega cleaning skills!

If you ask the angels in a nice or nasty way(and I have done both) they do hear you.

You are definitely in a place of I don't care anymore and what now! I have been there so many times it could out do the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Here are how you know the angels are there:

*You get really really angry and you proceed to scream your head off..yep they are behind that. They need for you to express your integrity and what is making you feel negative and fearful. If you keep that to yourself you will feel awful and you'll have difficulty in paying attention when an angel sends a present through words such as seeing love, hope, or peace; angel statues, angel pins, angel images showing themselves in weird ways like on TV, in a video game, a card, an email or out shopping; someone who normally doesn't talk about, believe, or mention angels will say the word out loud or bring up the topic and it stands out because this is not a regular occurrence; an angel movie or Christmas angel movie that shouldn't be on TV or normally isn't will be on the programming and you happen to find it and put it on or somebody already flipped it to that channel; You have a friend come to the rescue and ask if you are alright and lets you know they have been praying for you and tells you everything will work out..they are channeling the angels. Your angels and their angels get together like a buddy system, talk it over and make sure you are not forgotten especially in a time when you feel that you are; You could also get a surprise in the mail or in person for a boost when you are going through a spike in your faith like someone buys you a coffee or wants to take you out, a small gift or thinking of you card; and lots of other amazing ways!

Angels love to get their wings filthy! They really do. Being an angel is no easy job and they realize that humans go through very dark and light emotions because this material world can be filled with pressure, stress, obligations, money issues, family dramas and tons more I can't list here and that's all you can focus on.

So, let them have that garbage..all of it. Every piece you have. Talk to them with a potty mouth..they enjoy it. I know this is not the way you think in communicating with angels or shouldn't I be saintly..the answer is no. Be yourself..the angels know your character and why are speaking or thinking this way and do not take offense. I always felt guilty when I got this way, but there is nothing to be afraid of. Angels don't throw halo ninja stars to get back at you.

Fun ways to have a one on one session with angels:

*Dress up with costume wings and a halo in private. Pretend you are your guardian angel or angelic being. Grab a doll or stuffed animal and place them on a chair in front of you. This will be you and you will role play as the angel(s). What messages do you get to say to yourself?

It might be, "Cherished One, I understand you are angry, but I am still here. Please fill my protective warmth and love I have for you inside your heart. It is okay to be upset, but do not give up hope on angels or acting as one yourself."

*Get a small garbage can or one you already have. Cut out angel figures out of white paper and write down what reeks in your life, and what messes you have. Then one by one crumple them up and say "Little Angel, Here's your junk, Give me some help to clear out this gunk. Thank you." Throw them in the garbage can until you are finished.

*Make yourself worry angel dolls. This is twist on the worry dolls. You can make these out of the wooden clothespins that have a head shape at the top, use yarn to decorate for hair, make little wings out of cardboard or by them, dress them in angelic robes or however you view angel helpers as, place them in a box you get at the craft store to look like a cloud or a pouch you decorate and give them all despair and burdens you have on you. You can make four, five or six of them.

*Have fun with Angel Karaoke. This is where you will sing all of your favorite angel and non angel songs with lyrics that pertain to what you might need some intercession with or just to let out a good cry. Before you sing let the angels know you are dedicating your performance for them and to send help pronto especially since it's a free show and you gave them front row!

*Draw an angel comic book. This is where you create some boxes like a real comic book, and place what is going on in your life and what outcome you want at the end. You can include you morphing into a powerful angel superhero that extinguishes your fears that come to life as horrible villains or a mini angel on your shoulder being there talking to you in each frame with messages. So, if you are feeling sad at the end you can make yourself with a huge smile on your face, and write on a T-shirt I'm with Happy while the angel has thumbs up. It's okay if you can't draw do stick figures or however you draw.

*Have a Celestial Movie Festival. Rent, borrow from the library or a friend every angel movie you can get your hands on! Michael starring John Travolta; City of Angels starring Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan; It's A Wonderful Life starring Jimmy Stewart, etc. There are many to choose from so get them will make you feel better.
