Once again after getting my composure back the Angel I now knew as "Michael" literally picked me up enfoldiing me into his huge wings. (*and I DID find a website recently that named this ONE angel as being one of my "Chief Guardian Angels!*)
We ascended higher and higher-at a rate of speed I cannot even humanly comprehend!
I tried to look around me but it was all a blur.
Once we stopped-I was lowered back onto what felt like silk! I looked down and saw green grass cradling my bare feet-but the texture was amazing!! It felt ALIVE! I looked around and spotted a huge waterfall the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen. I glanced up at Micheal who was smiling. Without my saying a word-he spoke, "Go ahead-it IS real." I looked back again at the crystal blue waters and let out a sigh. "There is just one problem," I moaned, "I can't SWIM!" Michael gazed at me and in a lower voice whispered, "Awww but you CAN swim-at least HERE you can. You can do anything you want to. See, your physical body WOULD drown-but you're SPIRIT here-your form is TRANSFORMED into pure energy and the fears you once had on earth cannot control you here. You have no boundaries here on what you wish to do that used to thrive on human fears and limitations!"
I stood staring at him and the words he had spoken
made total sense
"Have you LOOKED at yourself my dear girl-as I don't think you have paid much attention to several things here," he continued on. "#1 you are now SPIRIT and as such you are still recognized for who you are; BUT you are no longer in a human body which has its limitations. You are pure energy-a being of spirit; and spirit has no boundaries. Those 'things' you once could not do-will no longer hold you back from what you WISH to accomplish and more. I thought about his words, "ok..but then WHY could I not do the 'same things and accomplish them' when I was in a human BODY?" The reply was clear, "because YOU had human fears and YOU set boundaries on what YOU could do or not do BASED on your own FEARS. In other words, you HAD that same capability to do more and accomplish more-but the SPIRIT within the body of human flesh can succumb to our deepest fears and doubts. You are free of the limitations of being controlled by what fears your body knew-some fears being placed within you grow stronger with time."
I thought about what was said and glanced back
at the waterfall, glistening in the
I remembered a scripture I had heard someone quote
about 'having the faith of a child'. My lack of my own had
cost me dearly about who I 'was' or became as
Suddenly I heard voices but they were laughing-and also I recognized it was a childs' laughter!! Here?? I began to look around and listened carefully.
A little boy I guessed to be about 8 came strolling from the nearby waters. He was holding the hand of a little girl who appeared to be only 2 or 3 years old. He came before me and smiled "Hi, my name is Brian" The little girl half-hid behind him, "Oh and this is my sister Stephanie-but she is a bit shy. I heard someone elses voice-and wanted to check it out'. I cleared my throat, "Hi Brian and hello there Stephanie."
In the midst of the intros I heard MORE children
and glanced up. There were children
"Well, it was nice meeting you-don't see many
grownups on this side." With that said Brian strolled off to join in with
the others. I sat down and watched them all playing.
