Last evening at sundown, I said a little prayer, opened my front door, and greeted five angels, inviting them into my home to stay for five days. Marley, my faithful little dog, witnessed their arrival. Immediately as I opened the door and welcomed them, there was a surge of energy that caused a warm sensation throughout my being, followed shortly by goose bumps that happen when you experience a bit of magic. Marley ran around like she does when I have a visitor, barking and wagging her tail. It was a friendly bark, and I know she was feeling the same thing that I was. There was a peaceful energy that settled into my home. Very subtle change, yet noticeable nonetheless. Since I have never experienced the visitation of five Archangels, I really didn’t know what to expect. As my candles flickered, I allowed my guests to make themselves at home. I sat in silence and listened to that still small voice inside, and it was indeed a time of joy and expectation. I realized that the real magic in life comes from that which is unseen. Love, joy, gratitude, peace–emotions and feelings to which there is no price tag. I listened to songs about angels, quietly reflected on my many blessings. I had unexpected surprise messages from people I haven’t heard from in a long time. I wish I could bottle this emotion and give it to all I know for Christmas. I feel very blessed. I look forward to all that these heavenly bodies have to teach me.
