Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all of you who read my blog every week. I appreciate your support and love. It’s hard to believe the year is almost over. It’s been quite a year and many are happy to see the year-end.
We have been encouraged to “go within” to surrender, to trust, and to “accept what is” and what we can and can’t control. I can’t control the government or vaccines or mandates. I can control and am responsible for my reactions, keeping myself in peace and my vibration high in love and gratitude. I do what I can and leave the rest to Spirit.
I met with a couple of friends this week for a holiday celebration and the question was posed, “What are you most proud of this year?” I said, “I am most proud of my EXPANSION and my ability to love and connect with others. I know we are all connected and ONE.
I feel such joy walking in the morning on the path overlooking the ocean and looking people in the eyes and saying, “Good morning.” I often start a conversation and know many locals by name. They remember my name as I am called Pat with the hat. A woman asked if she could take my picture because she loved my hat and wanted to show her friend.
A couple of weeks ago, while sitting outside at the coffee shop, a woman (who I had never seen before) walked by and looked me in the eyes and said, “You are amazing, you are amazing.” I thanked her and wondered what she meant?
A couple of minutes later the woman walked by me again. I decided to ask her what she meant when she said, “You are amazing.” She said, “I’m German and my words aren’t always correct. What I meant to say is that I see your aura. I said, “You mean my light?” She said, “Yes.”
I was so touched I just sat there smiling and in gratitude that my light was bright enough for someone to comment about it. About 15 minutes later, the woman walked by again and handed me a beautifully wrapped bag of cookies from the bakery. She bent down so I could hear her and said, “You are an angel.”
I took a deep breath and allowed myself to take in her words. I said, “Thank you so much and what you see in others is also in you. You are also an angel.” We chatted briefly and she said she owned the bakery shop a few doors down from the coffee shop.
I floated for the rest of the day thinking about what she said. Was I really an angel? My grandmother nicknamed me “angel.” Are we all angels in disguise?
What I do know in my heart is that we are here to walk each other home to the truth of who we are. We are divine and human and not separate from one another. We are connected to Source, God, Universe, or whatever you choose to call the Power. We are loved, safe, and protected.
I went to the bakery a couple of days later to drop off a thank you card to Christine for the cookies, and most importantly that she recognized me. She was behind the counter when I walked into the bakery. She immediately ran around and gave me a big hug. We looked deeply into one another’s eyes as I said, “Thank you for recognizing who I am.” I don’t know anything about this woman, and yet I know everything about her by just looking into her eyes. It was such a powerful experience for both of us.
I went to the farmers market on Saturday and there were many vendors with hand-made Maui gift items for sale. I bought a small Christmas angel for Christine and brought it to her at the bakery shop. She was touched as we again just looked into each other’s eyes. What a blessing. We plan on visiting after the holidays as we both know we are meant to get to know one another.
What I see in YOU is in ME. What you see in ME is in YOU. Claim it, celebrate it, believe it, and live it. We are all angels in disguise. We are needed on this earth to BE the light that shines in the darkness. Let your light shine and let the fun begin!
