Calling All Undercover Angels
You, yes, you are invited to join the League of Undercover Angels. Membership is free and easy. Just decide that you’d like to be an undercover angel and state your intention to God or the Universe or whatever works for you. Ask for assignments and wait for them to appear or you can make up some of your own assignments until you get an urgent dispatch. How do you know if an urgent dispatch? You’ll know it’s your job when you see a need in front of you that you could easily fill. If your asking yourself if this is an assignment for you, it probably is.
Don’t worry or make this hard. God wants to send you angel assignments that light you up and make you feel joyful and excited to be of assistance, not something that you don’t really want to do. This won’t be hard work like cooking cookies for a bake sale when that is your least favorite thing to do. The universe knows you and how you can best participate in the magic for everyone’s highest good, including yours.
I used to play this game quite often and I recently realized I’d gotten too serious lately and I wasn’t experiencing as much magic in my life as I usually do. When I asked myself how I could invite back in more magic to my life, the answer was embrace my undercover Angel status again.
I set this intention two days ago, then that evening I took my dog for a walk around my neighborhood. Lilly started barking and I saw a majestic bird standing in front of us. It was gorgeous and staring right at us. I felt an immediate connection with this bird. Then, I realized it couldn’t fly and it was hurt. I went to get my husband to help the bird. We all have certain kinds of magic and my husband is magic with animals. He picked up what turned out to be a great blue heron with a broken wing and carried it under his arm back to our house and placed it in a crate in our garage. Later, the animal rescue works were amazed that he did this as these birds have razor-sharp beaks and can strike very quickly. However, animals alway seem to know that my husband is there to help and they never resist him.
This bird brought a sense of peace with it and I could feel it through out our house that night as we slept with the heron in our garage. I called many rescue workers and vets and tried all I could to save the bird. I found a wonderful vet who tried to stabilize it so it could go to a rescue center and save its wing. She ended up having to put the bird to sleep and I wanted to judge the mission as failed. Then, she reminded me that this bird would have probably starved or been attacked by predators and had a slow painful death had we not rescued it. Instead, it spent its last night in a warm safe place receiving healing energy and prayer from all over the world (I have awesome Facebook friends!)
In the end, I asked for an assignment and I was given a gift. I felt a lot of peace from this bird and was guided to look up the totem meaning of the great blue heron and found that it stand for peace, uniqueness, and the ability to stand alone. I, also, found that although it can stand alone, it also communes very peacefully in a large groups during certain times of the year. I felt like this bird had a beautiful message for me on my journey.
So, if you are ready to add some magic to your life here’s a list of easy assignments for new angels:
1. When you are shopping, look for people in need. Just helping someone reach a product on the top shelf, letting someone ahead of you in line, or putting someone’s buggy back for them can be a big help. You may even have the opportunity to help purchase something for someone who really needs it. Take it if you can.
2. Pay for someone’s meal in a restaurant or coffee in a Starbuck’s drive-thru. Any random act of kindness that feels divinely guided is an undercover angel assignment. If you feel inspired, go for it.
3. Print up little uplifting cards and put them in books, or places where someone will find them. My kids and I had great fun doing this in the library. You can print out kindness cards or make your own with your favorite quotes.
4. Take one of these cards or a sticky note with an uplifting message and put it with five dollars and place it somewhere that someone will find it and brighten their day.
5. Pack care kits for the homeless. My kids and I plan to do this and keep them in our car so we can hand them out to people who are standing by the road asking for donations.
How does this create magic in your life? When you decide to be part of the magic of life you can’t help attract more magic into your own life –tweet that. Also, I’ve found, as in the case with the great blue heron, when you reach out to help someone one, you are often the one who receives the bigger gift. So intend it and go undercover, you angel you.
I can’t resist adding a little theme song to inspire you.
I’d love to hear any undercover angels experiences you have had. To prove it, I’m giving away a Facebook “manifesting plan” to one of my commenters during the month of December. I’ll put everyone’s name in random.org and choose a winner to be announced here around Jan. 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details if I have access to their e-mail or you can check back here around the first and message me on my Facebook page. Once you tell me what you want to create, I’ll create a personal manifesting plan for you and we’ll make sure it feels fabulous to you!
Transforming through Love and Joy,
