Fear be gone

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 23, 2022 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (2)

If you have faith to move mountains, you must remember that this is what also removes our fear.

Let no fear hold you back from the truth.

Let no fear stop you from doing what is right.

Let no fear freeze you for your faith is strong.

When you remove the fear then the reality of the truth is all that remains.

The truth is love conquers.

The truth is love brings forth hope, guidance and peace.

The truth is love does not create fear.

Love shines like a flashlight in the dark when we most need light to calm the anxiety of our mind.

Know the light is always there, Breathe in.

Breathe out.

And release all doubt.

Accepting Yourself

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 23, 2022 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (2)

Did you know when you die your problems remain.

If you can't find peace on earth, know it is the same in heaven.

The truth is that being on good terms with people allows you the easiest transition to live your life fully in spirit and with spirit.

Yes, in heaven there is peace.

Peace comes as you melt into the oneness of creation.

Yet those that remember you will always remember if you had peace on earth, and peace with them,

Wishing you peace on earth this holiday season and always

. Now for the how: Getting peace on earth begins in your heart.

Accepting yourself, others and the world. And trusting acceptance doesn't always mean believing in certain values.

Acceptance gifts you peace. Peace to know you don't have to be judge, jury, or the change.

Peace allows you to follow your heart.

To know all are created with intention to be exactly who they are.

And that is perfect for them.

Maybe not perfect for you but know the grass is only greener when you care for your world.

Your world is the world.

Make it better by choosing to accept, love and be kind to all.

Retracting Hand

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 23, 2022 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (1)

Lives are lived. Stories told. Events unfold.

People grieve, people give, and friends share news that their life goes on and on.

Mistakes are not intentional.

No one is perfect.

Look in the mirror, and one should fall in love.

Even those that have violated you can love.

But forgiving them can only be done when they know they were wrong.

Hear the apologies from the sky.

The absence has only been to allow you to heal, to accept and to forgive.

People are genuinely good.

Friends only try and do what is right. Try to help.

Sometimes a helping hand goes too far, and sometimes not far enough.

So retracting the hand, there is a silent cry, waiting to know if you are alright.

Yet knowing everything will be right in the end.

Do You Remember Your Dreams?

Do you remember your dreams?

Do you understand the lesson of which it brings?

Daniel could before he entered the Lion's den. 

And even then, he knew everyone has a purpose.

Every encounter has a reason, and every memory shares a lesson to find love meant to be shared.

Friends and Strangers

Meeting a stranger to share a thought, begins an act of friendship to which one may question whether they should have stopped.

A Murderer in the Mirror

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on March 31, 2018 at 8:00 PM Comments comments (2)

Unknowingly, yet intentionally you merged with a victim's' soul.

Cringing in the mirror, your reflection screams, "You killed ME."

Thankfully, he has no courage to kill himself because silently he knows he will have to face her and HIM.

He lives his quiet life, seeking therapy as a victim for he too has suffered loss.

We, the victims, have created the support group.

He is welcome to come forward but he won't. There is too much at stake.

He must face us all, and within us he will see her face.

He will learn is that it is actually better to suffer on earth than after, for the afterlife never ends.

Anyone seeking peace, know it is best to make peace for your soul in the body, than trying after its gone.

God will find new ways for those that repent, truly repent. But if you haven't repented on earth, he will give you eternity to make ammends.

The only option for the Murderer is to come forward and receive the punishment.

Restore justice to the world so her spirit may be released back to ONLY those that loved her.

The Glass will show the Murderer in the silence of the truth.

And in the silence of the after party, the smiles and hugs will gather all those that she loved.

Wait and See

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 9, 2017 at 6:55 PM Comments comments (180)

"Wait and see" they said to me. "But what is it like to die?" I asked.

These ascended ancestors explained to me that the hardest thing about accepting death is knowing it effects others so deeply.

"More than you imagine and definitely more than you ever thought it could." They explained, "Death is the beginning of the next great experience, and should always be a blessing. But arriving naturally is the question left behind. There is a chain of events to happen for even the smallest of accidents. So we must remember that as much as we seek control, utilize our free will, and give ourselves permission to accept responsibility; There is a greater hand than ours."

The grief we carry yearns to reconnect us to our loved ones. To hold them again, to be with them the same as before. 

They never wished sorrow unto you. So mourn for a moment, but let the thankfulness of who they were in your life linger longer. Much longer.

Don't question. Don't blame, and certainly... Don't find yourself in doubt. It was their time. Even when we wonder if they didn't win the fight, they did.  It was the right fight for their life.  You must live life knowing they remain in your heart, and  in your life.

Your loved ones say, "Though I had to leave for awhile. Don't be sad, for my life was blest and you see I did my best. Now you do your best and one day you too will be at rest with me. Until then, Smile when you remember me, fight the urge to cry, and know You are the reason why I am extremely blest."

Words from your beloved loved one..

Words from your beloved loved one...

I will keep my distance when asked as I don't want to scare you. I never would.

I amso thankful to you. You were an angel on my journey, and an angel to many.

So much of what you know is true. And I just want to share right now, that I am OK.

Yes, it was hard. Feeling alone in the hospital, even when I know you were there.

But I knew what would happen. No matter where I was, life goes on.

Whether it was here, New York, Boston, Pittsburgh, Paris or Baltimore, wherever. Life goes on.

I never wanted to interrupt my family's life. I never wanted to see you sad.

It sucks that I had to have this disease. And yes, it put me at DIS-ease.

Sometimes still when I see your hurting, that dis-ease returns again.

I am  thankful for what I did on my journey. I have no regrets. None. Not even the anger I felt. I realize now that it was OK to be angry.

That anger is what allowed me to accept and heal my own journey.

Oh how I wish we could have talked more about where I was headed, and how the transition would happen, but I know many are uncomfortable and well, I needed to fight. Fighting to live is the right thing to do. Always.

We need to want to live, a will to live. And in fighting, there is a time to surrender, and it was my time.

I wish I could have prepared you more or even given you more of each moment but I did the best I could.

Everyone can be an ass at times, and I am just thankful that I had so many fun moments in my life that have built memories for my family, my friends and myself. No matter how small...I remember it all. The good, the  beautiful, and the loving.

Let me just say, that I know everyone worries about making mistakes, and taking chances, and even forgetting important stuff. But don't worry. Everything truly does happen for a reason.

It is beautiful here and I can be everywhere. Everywhere I choose to be or where I'm called to be. And I will never take advantage, never scare, and I will always Shine light to bring forth God's unconditional love.

So the message I bring today is. Do Good. Be Good. Spread Good, and Cherish Good. Know that God owns our decisions, it is GOOD.

G = God

O= Owns

O= Our

D= Decisions.

He will guide as we decide.

Choose faith and I promise you will be saved.

I am here, I am there, I am everywhere.

I am with the Lord.

It is all one Good spirit.

The Meeting, The Revelation & The Gift

And he said, "When I drink I feel no pain."

And he learned, Life was hard but it wasn't as bad as He thought.

And he said, "I needed the drink. It numbed my thoughts."

And he learned, To change my thoughts I could have changed the outcome.

And he said, "Never did I think of you. I actually didn't even really think of me. I just drank the drank my body craved. I caved and now I'm gone."

And he learned, I am loved.

And he said, "I want to apologize. I didn't mean to hurt you then or now. I am sorry."

And he learned, I saw no option at the time.

And he said, "I no longer suffer with the craving. I realize I cannot ever have an awakening to undo what I have done."

And he learned, In heaven's peace, I take on a mission to save another from that place I was at.

And he said, "Life is a gift, never wish it away. A day can make a difference to chose your fate."

And he learned, Heaven is made of the best of who you are. I wish I had been better. I cannot change that now, but I can ask Him to show me the way.

And the Lord said, "You numbed the thoughts that would have healed your growth."

And he learned, Those that face their fears, gain their strength. Now my strength is my weakness. A weakness that others need to overcome, when they do, I shall move on.

And he said, "Thank you for loving me just the same. And they embraced."
