In my most recent messages from the angels, they’ve focused a great deal on spiritual strength.

After all, it takes a lot of strength to be more compassionate, loving and accepting.

They’ve said that this time is a “trial by fire”, and our physical reality is a “proving ground”.

Many of us have experienced a great deal of negativity as of late. But many have experienced kindness, compassion, acceptance, and love as well.

What the angels have told me is that these experiences (positive and negative) are opportunities to strengthen our Spirit because they are all opportunities for us to make a choice.

When we’re experiencing a negative situation, it’s an opportunity for us to either spread that negativity further into the world or choosing differently by choosing to spread compassion, love, acceptance.

By the same token, when we experience positive situations, we have choices we can make there too.

We can choose to emulate the positivity and spread it throughout our realm of influence or choose to belittle it, calling it “soft” or “weak”.

The angels remind us that we ultimately choose our experiences. Though, we cannot always choose the circumstances we experience.

How do we do this?

When we are faced with an experience, particularly a negative one, we can choose whether we respond to it, or we react to it.

For instance, we can jump to conclusions or go on the defensive and attack someone before we, ourselves, can be attacked.

That is the “knee-jerk” protective action, or  we can pause and consciously respond to the circumstances that we’re experiencing.

This is not a skill that we can become good at overnight. It takes time and practice.

Just like the muscles in our physical body become stronger with repetitive motions, our Spirit becomes stronger with repetitive situations, reflection, and awareness.

So how do we strengthen our spirits through what we’ve been experiencing in our physical reality at this time?

Through Conscious Awareness.

Instead of going through our day on autopilot, we need to learn to be more conscious, more mindful. By being present in every moment. By really experiencing whatever has come our way.

We do this by frequently checking in with ourselves, by asking ourselves, “how am I feeling right now” and “is this how I want to feel”?

If the answer is “no”, then we can make the conscious choice to choose differently.

We really have more power over ourselves and our world than we think we do!

Is it really that simple, though?

It can be as simple or difficult as we choose it to be.

BUT we make it much more simple upon ourselves when we remember that we’re not alone in this endeavor. 

A Burden Shared

In a message I received from Archangel Jophiel yesterday, she told me,

The Physical Experience can wear heavily on a Spirit. We are well aware of this. We know it is not always easy. But a burden shared is a burden lifted. We are always here to share your burden, dear one.*

So, we can call on the Angels for assistance whenever we need it.

Say you’re experiencing negativity within or around your body. We can call upon Archangel Michael to use his Blue Cyclone of Clearing Energy, not only to clear the space around us but to clear the energy that we are experiencing within ourselves.

We must remember, though, the Universe doesn’t like vacuums or voids. So when we clear energy, we need to replace it with something else.

In this instance, we can call upon Archangel Jophiel to bring us joy, happiness, and positivity, thus replacing the negative energy Archangel Michael with better feeling energy.


This was a synopsis of the message I received during the Angel Wisdom Message for this week.

In addition, I held a Live on the Angel Wisdom Facebook page yesterday, which will be edited and featured on the By the Hearth podcast this week.

I hope you found this to be helpful, dear friend!
