Remain Calm In Your Storms

I prayed for all our regular readers tonight and I asked for an Angel to present itself to everyone and connect with them on some level or another!

From the Doreen Virtue PhD pack of Arch Angel Oracle Cards, the Angel that
appeared tonight was “Sensitivity – Archangel Haniel”

Before reading I gave some thought on the whole subject of Sensitivity and I thought to myself. There are only two ways to react to sensitivity:

1. You can be sensitive and use it as a defense Mechanism


2. You can be Sensitive and know that your display of openness, compassion and empathy succeeds all the negative. Your sensitivity is one of your most useful tools.

When I am at my most sensitive, I can feel other people’s emotions and vulnerabilities, I am aware of how they feel and to top it all off, I Care!
Sometimes, when I don’t even want to. When this is happening to me, I know I need to spend a lot of time alone, or in meditation, or out in the park with the kids running ahead of me, having fun, while I let all the natural beauty in and re-fuel the Spirit as it were. Nature keeps my soul alive in this competitive Western World of Dog eats Dog, this constant Merry-go round sometimes makes me dizzy, intrigued and occasional physical ill.

When I am at my most sensitive, it is best for me to avoid harsh situations or gazing into the wine for too long.  My sensitivity only presents a time to get off the Merry-Go-Round and make healthy decisions and trust my inner thoughts and intuitions.

If I can look at the situation that presents itself honestly, I can both teach and learn!

I can refuse to take it personally and be positive about the situation or I can withdraw and come to no conclusion and have another go on the Merry-Go-Round.

After reading the interruptions of the card which I cannot completely quote for copyright reasons, I looked up the Oxford Encyclopedia English Dictionary which quotes that the meaning of Sensitivity as:

Capacity to feel
Openness to emotional impressions
(Sensibility to kindness)
A tendency to feel offended.

Sensibility is not to be used to be offended but rather to empower and challenge others to show love and compassion. You try walking in my shoes…. Then tell me how you feel and only then can I learn from you. Otherwise we share no truths, we have different experiences and yet no matter how separated we feel, we are still One.

I have been feeling a little more sensitive lately and it always happens around this time of the year, I did a personal three card reading for myself yesterday and one of the cards was Divine Order... Hmm!
Like the card says, everything is happening in Divine order whether I feel empowered or defensive it is happening for the greatest good of all and it is bringing me closer to God, the Divine and to the true essence of me.

Remain calm in your storms. This too will pass, and all will be enlightened!
Victory prevails!

Feelings vs. Emotions

There are two ways of reacting to a feeling - we can react in a way that has nothing to do with the feeling but is a past emotive experience, which comes across as extreme over feeling, or we can have a feeling or experience and can honestly express that feeling exactly as it should be...
