Once more Archangel Uriel is standing in the wings, waiting for me to step up to the plate. Once more there has been upheaval that has turned my life upside down. This is how it started before. I entered into the final phase of this project having learned some very valuable lessons. I allowed Uriel free reign for his plate and he turned around and guided me by telling me whatever I picked would be wonderful! Okay, after the ordeal with Raphael I decided to tread softly. As it turns out Archangel Uriel would prove to deliver the most powerful message of them all.
I LOVE ARCHANGEL URIEL!!! Uriel has been the one who has remained silent for the most part...I went through his whole design with great care and reverence...ego was actually sitting in the corner for this one. The plate came out beautifully! I was so happy. Sitting down in meditation with Uriel was exciting, not only because it was Uriel, it was also because I thought I was at the end of the project. While in meditation with Uriel at one point he held out his hand and asked me to dance. When an Archangel wants to dance with you, you dance. And dance we did! He took my hand and brought me up into the cosmos where we danced among the stars! We were as big as a universe and danced across the cosmos! I laughed and stretched out my hand, letting star dust run through my fingers! It was amazing!
When we finished dancing he gave me the recipes fairly quickly and then I sat and waited for the messages....which didn't come. I had learned with Raphael not to rush these things, so I wasn't too startled by the lack of messages...of course, there were no names to them either...I just ended up giving them numbers. I put my notebook down and decided to pick it up in a day or two. Yeah, right.
The company I work for had been going through some upheaval, having been bought by a foreign interest wanting to legitimize themselves here in the U.S. There had been mutterings about "restructuring," for the past 2 years...and then the bottom dropped out from underneath my feet.
Just as I was coming to the "end" of the project for the Celestial Essences and the Power Plates, I was thrown into turmoil with the news that the new company wanted to make some "changes." The long and short of it was that in order to fall in line with industry standards they were cutting people's pay. Never mind the former company had always turned a profit...while respecting their employees and paying us well, not to mention there were no complaints from our clients about our work.
As it turns out, because I had been with the former company so long my pay would be cut in half! That's right...half. Panic ensued. I was devastated. I had no one to fall back on to help pay my bills! What was I going to do? I started applying for jobs, government jobs, medical health jobs, anything that I believed I was qualified for. The well started to dry up and I took a 2nd job. Somewhere in all this chaos I actually did manage to try to stay focused on Uriel's Celestial Essences, and he was staying quiet. I believed it to be at an end. I worked for nearly a year following directions, putting this all together and ending up short of the mark with only some recipes numbered 1 through 7! I thought to myself, well, if nothing else at least you should actually CREATE the essences, instead of just having them on paper.
Yes, dear reader...you've read correctly. I hadn't made a single essence to this point. I had all the recipes, but didn't actually put them together. I'm a little slow. My fear levels had risen to an all time high and my depression spiraled downward into a low that even I had never experienced. Through it all, Uriel remained steadfast, calm, ever present, ever silent, giving me support in the most quiet and powerful way! I could feel his presence with me and while it should have made me feel uplifted, all I could think about was that I was failing him! I was failing GOD! My ego then decided to step out in front, bring in the band, and march all over what little self-esteem I had left. Ever see the movie Music Man? You get the picture.
I took some time out from the chaos to place all 4 plates on my makeshift altar in what I call my "healing room," which also doubles as my dressing room since it's the one bedroom in the house that has closets.
It had never occurred to me to actually look at the recipes until that evening. I gathered my essential oils and bottles and recipes and started with Michael's first recipe. I looked at the list and thought, "really? Why would you put these together?" It wasn't until I started to blend and smell them and then feel their energies that I got the Ah-Ha's. GOD IS GREAT!!!
As I finished each series I placed them on their respective Power Plates to energize them. When I got to Uriel's I felt a pang of guilt. The little dram bottles were just numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. I still hadn't gotten any messages and through the blending process I rather hoped that Uriel would finally chime in with some wisdom. There was only silence.
So, there they were, all my little Celestial Essences, finally blended with no place to go! Plates in place. Now what everyone? Still, silence. I was becoming a bit frustrated, especially with everything else going on in my world.
My life situation became more dire. I was caught in the grip of fear. Losing my home was coming close to being a reality. It was getting to the point where I couldn't afford to put food on my table. Yes, dear reader, I contemplated the unthinkable more and more frequently. Then in the middle of the night, in the silence that comes from lying awake staring at the ceiling wondering what the next day was going to bring, Uriel leaned over and spoke my name! I mean to tell you it was spoken out loud like there was someone in my room! I nearly jumped out of my skin! My heart was pounding so loud and fast it was all I could hear for quite some time and my body wouldn't move, frozen, like a deer in the headlights!
All this time, Uriel had been patiently waiting, supporting me when I needed it most, walking beside me every step of the way, gently and calmly soothing my frazzled nerves, reassuring me that all would be well. It was time. I got out of bed and went into the other room, took pen and paper in hand, and he gave me the messages and their names. The series? SPARK! Of course! We had danced across the cosmos, it all made sense! I felt a sense of satisfaction after writing the last word. I could now put names to the little numbered bottles on their plate.
The lesson from Archangel Uriel? Perseverance. Grace. Through it all, Uriel's presence was felt, I knew he was there. The Archangels, ALL OF THEM, and my team NEVER gave up on me!!! GOD NEVER GIVES UP ON ME!
I have spent over 18 months now applying for various jobs, being rejected time and time again. I went through a refinance from hell so that I could keep my home...it took over 8 months for the whole processs to complete, and it did complete! This helped to loosen the grip that was around my financial throat for so long. I am so very grateful. It has taken almost 2 years to actually bring about the Celestial Essences and that is only because my fear got in the way...I got in the way of the Divine process. Another lesson learned (and still learning).
Through it all I have learned to trust the messages given me, even though others might look at me strangely or consider me odd. The messages I receive are always loving, helpful, and given with such love and compassion that I know it comes from GOD.
Why GOD chose me to do this work, to make these Celestial Essences, to work with these magnificent Archangels, I do not know. Perhaps it is not for me to know. What I do know is that I was directed to create these essences. The oils are there for those who need them most. There will be others, of that I am certain. For now, I will hold onto Michael's Knights in all their glory, Gabriel's Veils that lift away the fog and bring about clarity, Raphael's Winds that sweep across my soul and give me guidance, and Archangel Uriel's quiet strength and perseverance to Spark my life into a new and magnificent direction!
They are part of my team...my coaches, my friends, my blessings and so much more! There are times when I feel as though I am standing alone looking into the face of an oncoming storm. That is just an illusion that my ego would like me to believe...when I am quiet and can still my mind, I hear my team, I feel their presence, they are many and they are MIGHTY and I KNOW that GOD IS WITH ME!
