ANGEL WORDS

Happy Friday Angels!

I hope this message finds you all well and getting ready for the weekend.

I thought I would share with you the below book I have been reading that of which I have found rather interesting.  The title of it is “Angel Words, Visual Evidence of How Words Can Be Angels in Your Life, by Doreen Virtue and Grant Virtue.”

As you know and can feel when spoken words have an effect on those speaking them and those receiving the message spoken.  Take a look at the Love and how it is reflected in the many emotions of which it is said. Here are a couple more examples:

It’s rather quite interesting and makes one stop and truly think before you speak.

Angels, you have a chance you should check out this book by Doreen Virtue and her son Grant Virtue.  They have put a lot of work into a book to make one stop and think about being more positive in life and about the words one thinks of and says.

I hope you all have a fabulous day and weekend!

ALWAYS with Light & Love!!

10 THINGS SMART PEOPLE NEVER SAY

10 THINGS SMART PEOPLE NEVER SAY

I’m not talking about shocking slips of the tongue, off-color jokes, or politically incorrect faux pas. These aren’t the only ways to make yourself look bad. Often it’s the subtle remarks — the ones that paint us as incompetent and unconfident — that do the most damage.

No matter how talented you are or what you’ve accomplished, there are certain phrases that instantly change the way people see you and can forever cast you in a negative light. These phrases are so loaded with negative implications that they undermine careers in short order.

“This is the way it’s always been done”

Technology-fueled change is happening so fast that even a six-month-old process could be outdated. Saying this is the way it’s always been done not only makes you sound lazy and resistant to change, but it could make your boss wonder why you haven’t tried to improve things on your own. If you really are doing things the way they’ve always been done, there’s almost certainly a better way.

“It’s not my fault”

It’s never a good idea to cast blame. Be accountable. If you had any role — no matter how small — in whatever went wrong, own it. If not, offer an objective, dispassionate explanation of what happened. Stick to the facts, and let your boss and colleagues draw their own conclusions about who’s to blame. The moment you start pointing fingers is the moment people start seeing you as someone who lacks accountability for their actions. This makes people nervous. Some will avoid working with you altogether, and others will strike first and blame you when something goes wrong.

“I can’t”

I can’t is it’s not my fault’s twisted sister. People don’t like to hear I can’t because they think it means I won’t. Saying I can’t suggests that you’re not willing to do what it takes to get the job done. If you really can’t do something because you truly lack the necessary skills, you need to offer an alternative solution. Instead of saying what you can’t do, say what you can do. For example, instead of saying “I can’t stay late tonight,” say “I can come in early tomorrow morning. Will that work?” Instead of “I can’t run those numbers,” say “I don’t yet know how to run that type of analysis. Is there someone who can show me so that I can do it on my own next time?”

“It’s not fair”

Everyone knows that life isn’t fair. Saying it’s not fair suggests that you think life is supposed to be fair, which makes you look immature and naïve. If you don’t want to make yourself look bad, you need to stick to the facts, stay constructive, and leave your interpretation out of it. For instance, you could say, “I noticed that you assigned Ann that big project I was hoping for. Would you mind telling me what went into that decision? I’d like to know why you thought I wasn’t a good fit, so that I can work on improving those skills.”

“That’s not in my job description”

This often sarcastic phrase makes you sound as though you’re only willing to do the bare minimum required to keep getting a paycheck, which is a bad thing if you like job security. If your boss asks you to do something that you feel is inappropriate for your position (as opposed to morally or ethically inappropriate), the best move is to complete the task eagerly. Later, schedule a conversation with your boss to discuss your role in the company and whether your job description needs an update. This ensures that you avoid looking petty. It also enables you and your boss to develop a long-term understanding of what you should and shouldn’t be doing.

“This may be a silly idea/I’m going to ask a stupid question”

These overly passive phrases instantly erode your credibility. Even if you follow these phrases with a great idea, they suggest that you lack confidence, which makes the people you’re speaking to lose confidence in you. Don’t be your own worst critic. If you’re not confident in what you’re saying, no one else will be either. And, if you really don’t know something, say, “I don’t have that information right now, but I’ll find out and get right back to you.”

“I’ll try”

Just like the word think, try sounds tentative and suggests that you lack confidence in your ability to execute the task. Take full ownership of your capabilities. If you’re asked to do something, either commit to doing it or offer an alternative, but don’t say that you’ll try because it sounds like you won’t try all that hard.

“This will only take a minute”

Saying that something only takes a minute undermines your skills and gives the impression that you rush through tasks. Unless you’re literally going to complete the task in 60 seconds, feel free to say that it won’t take long, but don’t make it sound as though the task can be completed any sooner than it can actually be finished.

“I hate this job”

The last thing anyone wants to hear at work is someone complaining about how much they hate their job. Doing so labels you as a negative person and brings down the morale of the group. Bosses are quick to catch on to naysayers who drag down morale, and they know that there are always enthusiastic replacements waiting just around the corner.

“He’s lazy/incompetent/a jerk”

There is no upside to making a disparaging remark about a colleague. If your remark is accurate, everybody already knows it, so there’s no need to point it out. If your remark is inaccurate, you’re the one who ends up looking like a jerk. There will always be rude or incompetent people in any workplace, and chances are that everyone knows who they are. If you don’t have the power to help them improve or to fire them, then you have nothing to gain by broadcasting their ineptitude. Announcing your colleague’s incompetence comes across as an insecure attempt to make you look better. Your callousness will inevitably come back to haunt you in the form of your coworkers’ negative opinions of you.

Bringing it all together

These phrases have a tendency to sneak up on you, so you’re going to have to catch yourself until you’ve solidified the habit of not saying them.

DAILY MAINTENANCE

Daily maintenance for choosing Light with Archangel Michael

  1. Ask Archangel Michael to disconnect you from the collective conscious/unconscious.
  2. Ask Archangel Michael to clear, repair and solidify your connection to God and the Heavenly Realms. (This connection goes out the top of your head)
  3. Ask Archangel Michael to vacuum (it can have 1 hose – or many) out any lower energies that you may have within you or your auric field. When he is done, ask him to reverse the vacuum and fill you with the highest frequency of light you can easily accept at this time.
  4. Ask Archangel Michael to buoy your faith in God and mankind, to lend you his faith if need be.
  5. Ask Archangel Michael to help you know and clearly see the truth in all situations, cutting through all illusions.

Thank you to “Your Inner Landscape” for sharing such great guidance!

My Angels, all we have to do is “ASK” for Guidance and it will be shown.  Do not be afraid to reach out and ask.  Have Faith and Keep that Inner Strength.

Always with Light & Love from your Angels!

I Always Say, When In Doubt ~ Look Up…

I Always Say, When In Doubt ~ Look Up…

I had been having a really hard time and while attending a softball game with my husband, I prayed to my Angels, Guides, and my Lord above for a some peace, a sign, a light… something.  I had been crying so much and my heart was breaking so much that I couldn’t take it any longer.  Then, when we arrived at the ball field, I looked up in the sky and this is what I saw.  The sky was simply beautiful and without a doubt, I knew all was going to be well and I would be at peace soon.

Angel

For me, I see Angels everywhere.  The fluttering of wings, the entire being, the sign of peace and the light within.  I as well find many feathers around and almost always they come from no where. Another sign from my Angels above!

With this my Angels, know that Life is a gift and though there are struggles and many at times, know that you are loved, you are never really alone, and should you find yourself down, look up – smile – talk to your Angels and they will be there.  We here at Enlightenment Angels are always here for you, always.

With Light, Love, Strength, Guidance, Enlightenment and Your Warrior Within!  Cheers Angels!
