I should be sleeping but I am up with bronchitis burning in my chest. I am a very healthy person and I don't get many colds, but when I do, I always end up with a bronchial infection. Why?
I am a student of the Law of Attraction and other life principles. I do my best to take responsibility for the results I see in my life. I compare the mind to a movie projector and my thoughts are the film. If I think the same old thoughts, then I will get roughly the same old movie, and how boring is that? Who wants to see the same old movie year after year? It becomes obvious how it will end!
As I change my thoughts, the movie that I live in also changes. I feel powerful when I acknowledge that I am the writer, director, producer and principal actor in this movie. So why do the old patterns still throw me for a loop? Why are they still here?
I was sickly as a child. I was the one who would miss three weeks of school at a time, with colds and flus and anything that went around. As I grew older and learned about family systems, I saw how I carried much of the tension of my alcoholic family. I was often the purifier of the toxic energy in that household, although I didn't know it at the time. I just knew I threw up a lot.
It also didn't help that I grew up in a home with two smokers in the pre-information age. Back then, it was nothing to throw the kids in the back of the car (without seat belts), then have both parents light up cigarettes. I'm sure my system paid
Then I learned a little about what it means to be a Gemini. The body parts that are associated with my sun sign include the bronchial passages and lungs. That confirmed what I already know about my own vulnerability.
And now I know about the power of my thoughts, about universal laws. To my logical mind, it seems that I should have more control over getting sick. I no longer acknowledge myself as "sickly" and instead, focus on my good health. Yet I still get sick. What does this mean?
I read today that Jerry Hicks died. I am only vaguely familiar with Jerry and Esther Hicks and the Abraham channellings. I read a bit on the internet and was surprised to find such controversy! I read that Jerry Hicks' illness was originally presented as a spider bite, that there was an attempt to mislead and misdirect, because if Hicks got sick, then all the millions of dollars he raked in with his Law of Attraction teachings would be exposed as fraudulent. It seems it has finally leaked out that he died of cancer.
How? If he was one of the "experts" in this area, how could he contract this widespread human illness? And why do I have bronchitis again?
I have no judgment of the Hicks situation and I have little knowledge of it. I do, however, see that just because we profess to consciously direct our thoughts and just because we believe in the Law of Attraction, doesn't mean we are exempt from human experiences. For goodness sake, Wayne Dyer just had a bout of cancer!
What I do know is that the more conscious I am of my thoughts, the more power I do have over myself and my reaction to life circumstances, and perhaps that is the magic of the Law of Attraction. Instant manifestation and having all my dreams and goals come true right now might be fabulous, and I do work on that, but more important to me is that I am aware of where my mind goes. If I still get bronchitis, well, I don't know how to explain it. But I do know that bronchitis doesn't knock me out, stop me from living my life, or make me feel like a victim. The gift in it is that I take a little better care of myself, surround myself with positive thoughts and angelic assistance, and make me more aware of my thoughts.
So as I am hacking and drinking tea and rubbing cedarwood oil on my chest, I am grateful for any little bits of insight that come along. Meanwhile, I am closer to the angels as I am forced to ask for help. I am compelled to take the time to ask Michael to vacuum the toxins out of my chest and Raphael to beam his healing green light into every cell of my body.
If I can figure out how not to get bronchitis, I will let you know. Until then, all is well.

This is the fourth in a "Getting to Know the Archangels" series. There will be a total of fifteen.
I was contemplating two different topics for this blog: one was the next in the Archangel series, and the other was about hockey. I was thinking and towelling off after my shower when a little white feather drifted down from my towel onto the floor. I had my answer!
I was recently searching for a metaphor to describe how I see, feel or otherwise interpret angels. The best I can come up with is this: the space around us is filled with invisible energies, from microwave signals to radio waves to thought forms to unseen spirits. They are of a higher frequency than our bodies, so they move right through us and we can't see them. In most cases, angels are another one of these energies.
I like to think of them by their colours, as though they are beautiful, coloured ribbons swirling invisibly around us like individual strands of a rainbow. Each one is similar yet has its own distinct characteristics. We can call upon or envision these ribbons wrapping around us and lending us the support of these characteristics, according to our needs and prayers.
If the energy is a deep blush pink, both strong and gentle, it is Archangel Jophiel. She is an angel with definite feminine energy, and embodies beauty on all levels. I see Jophiel as emanating primarily from the heart chakra with a role as well in the root chakra. The image I get is of a beautiful strong pink colour flowing out of my heart, down my arms and through my hands. This is a wonderful image of allowing my touch to bring love and beauty to the world.
When is it appropriate to call in Jophiel? As with all the angels and archangels, any time is appropriate! However, there are specific times that Jophiel's unique qualities benefit us the most.
Think of beauty. What does it mean to you? Is it physical beauty? Jophiel's energy and presence can enhance our physical beauty as we call on her when making decisions around our appearance. She is available to help us with the right clothing, colours, haircut and style. This is not superficial! When we look our best, we feel better, and that is one of the points of us asking for angelic help: to feel good about ourselves, to have confidence and self-love so we can share these things with others.
Jophiel also guides the beauty in our surroundings. She can help with Feng Shui or simply decorating our homes. If you are uncertain about how to beautify your living space, ask Archangel Jophiel to guide your choices. You will be drawn to the colours, patterns and objects that will bring you relaxation and comfort. We all need a safe place to let our guard down, and our home should support that.
Jophiel can also help with the more subtle task of beautifying our minds. When taking the Angel Therapy Practitioner® Course, we were introduced early in the week to Jophiel and her ability to beautify and uplift our thoughts. In fact, she is one of two Archangels that we worked with each time we practiced our readings, the other being Michael.
So when you find yourself thinking negatively, looking at the glass half empty or just stuck, call on Jophiel. She will help to remove doubts and move your mind from ego to spirit, so you can trust yourself more fully. Imagine the difference between living in fear and doubt, questioning everything and being cynical, and living in beauty and love, where you have trust and clarity, and you relax in your perceptions, knowing you are being guided perfectly on your path.
Jophiel is standing by to help you to create more beauty and harmony in every aspect of your life and then watch beauty unfold around you! All you have to do is ask.
