Angels & Inspirations: Inspiring Others

By Emily Rivera Andrews

In life we are greeted with many presences that offer us mentoring. Some easily embody the credentials, the stature, or the wisdom that clearly help us to identify how and why they bring us inspiration. But unexpected sources also can offer us mentoring, and often they catch us off guard. For example, it may come in a young child’s words of truth, from a pet in its expression of love through its presence alone, through a homeless man at the light with his smile, or even from an individual we may view as a hindrance in our path. No doubt, mentoring can embody many forms.

I trust it will remind you to be open to the many forms of mentoring, expected and unexpected, that have appeared and have yet to materialize for you. It is witnessing this form of presence that can inspire you to serve in the same capacity for others.
Much love and Namaste

Angels’ message:
We encourage you all in seeing the truth that mentoring is synonymous with inspiration. It’s a form of clarity expressed in a variety of ways, uniquely to each form and individual.

The embodiment of this truth can arrive in many ways. Be receptive to the voice that speaks within you all, and how it can offer an understanding birthed from Divine truth, regardless if the vessel of its message is skewed in his/her approach to living.

Divine love is translucent in how it chooses to express, and its power to illuminate can appear in many forms. Decide to be open to the likely and unlikely possibilities.

Mentors appear not always as individuals, but also as manifestations of the natural kingdom.

Many forms, many faces, from expected and unexpected places.

You too are being inspired daily to be the vehicles of love and truth, through which others can be blessed. The areas of mentoring that can be offered through you do not need to come from a place of conscious knowledge, but can arise from a space of love: a place of pure Divine recognition for another.

It can appear through inanimate objects, [such as] a book, a rock, a sound [as I felt and heard the movement of wind]. In these too you can hear the voice of loved ones no longer in form.

Mentoring can present itself through our thoughts and emotions if we choose to bear witness of what they offer.

Other words of wisdom we share: Be available to removing the thoughts and ideas that sacrifice growth. It’s something that needs to be reprogrammed within your psyche [because these thoughts and ideas are] not in alignment with truth. Teaching through chaos is not what we prescribe or what is encouraged. [It is a] needless vehicle for growth. Patterns within thoughts can bring forth chaos that isn’t necessarily always present [in your life.] Step back, breathe, and pause for moment of introspection to determine truth. Created and guided perceptions can give color to what’s unfolding that is not in pure alignment to what is Divinely being inspired. Yes it can inspire change, this is true, but there are other vehicles for change and transformation. Seeking growth through harmonious channels, rather than through those of pain, is what we inspire.
It’s seeing endings as new beginnings. Seeing pain as a reminder that there is healing and aligning needed within your mind, body, and thoughts. Seeing sadness as inspiration to become open to [experiencing] more good. Seeing loss as a form to grow to new realities and possibilities.

Transition is normal; it’s part of human evolution.

Without it you decay, you grow weak, and at times miserable. Growth involves change and stepping more into your true self. It’s a process, a journey, always ongoing. It is driven by the soul. Change is unique for each individual, but a form of it appears within all your lives. What changes are unfolding within you or outside yourself that are the process of commencement into [an expression of] your true potential? Where is fear holding you back from taking the next step into your evolution?

Know that we are here. Know that we are able to offer all that is needed in love and in illumination.

The Angels

I also want to include a Chinese parable that was shared during the presentation. The Angels are inspiring us to re-empower ourselves by putting down that which is no longer needed, the hurts and things that are a representation of the past—not a reflection of what is possible within our future. Enjoy!

“The River”
Two Zen monks, Tanzan and Ekido, traveling on pilgrimage came to a muddy river crossing. There they saw a lovely young woman dressed in her kimono and finery, obviously not knowing how to cross the river without ruining her clothes. Without further ado, Tanzan graciously picked her up, held her close to him, and carried her across the muddy river, placing her onto the dry ground. Then he and Ekido continued on their way. Hours later they found themselves at a lodging temple. And here Ekido could no longer restrain himself and gushed forth his complaints: “Surely, it is against the rules, what you did back there…. Touching a woman is simply not allowed…. How could you have done that? … And to have such close contact with her! … This is a violation of all monastic protocol…” Thus he went on with his verbiage. Tanzan listened patiently to the accusations. Finally, during a pause, he said, “Look, I set that girl down back at the crossing. Are you still carrying her?”
(Based on an autobiographical story by Japanese master Tanzan, 1819-1892)
