Archangel Gabriel: Being Grateful for Where You Are

You have come to a time when acknowledgment of yourself is necessary. There needs to be a truce between the warring factions of your mind. One part of you is diligently watching to make sure that you never make a mistake. When you inevitably do, it leaps to chastise and remind you about all the ways you are wrong.

This judgmental mind is never happy with your progress. Nothing you do could ever be good enough. It is relentless in its pursuit of your wrongness. It is time to tell this part of your mind to take a vacation. It needs to lose itself in the beauty of nature, and leave the rest of you alone.

You are on this earth plane to learn. Making mistakes is one way that people learn lessons. It is impossible to do things right and perfectly every time. The Divine Presence does not expect this of you. What is necessary is that you follow your heart and your inner guidance. There is much wisdom within you. But it is often like a small voice calling in the wilderness, drowned out by critical and judgmental thoughts. Yet it is listening to this quieter voice that would most serve you in your life.

This voice is telling you that you are a child of a loving God, and that there is nothing you can do which could stop the flow of Infinite Love.

There is also society’s voice that demands you live up to certain expectations. When you are in alignment with your Higher Self, there is a flow of love-filled energy that allows you to step into a way of being which is totally connected to the Divine Power within and around you.

This energy is inviting you to BE rather than do. You are being asked to let go of the confining armor of society’s expectations and of your judgmental mind that has been conditioned by it. You are being asked to look with compassion upon yourself, and to notice the many things you are learning at this time. It is a powerful time on Earth when, although there is great suffering and fear, there are also incredible opportunities to break through into great love and peace.


What you see in the world is colored by how you perceive yourself. Can you see that, in the past, you took the steps that seemed appropriate for you at the time? Do you notice that there were times when your heart told you to make a certain choice, but for various reasons, you did not follow your intuition?

All these experiences have assisted you in learning lessons necessary for your growth. It is time to totally forgive yourself for behaving in ways you judge as wrong or bad. You would have made different choices had you known better, but you acted from your awareness at that time. Forgive yourself and get on with your life. Do not waste any more precious time in self-criticism.

You are making choices in this moment to create your future. All that you have is the power of this moment. Let the past go, and do not fear the future. Know that you are exactly where you need to be for your perfect lessons in life. It is up to you to lift the mantle of judgment and allow yourself to grow into who you would most like to be.

Imagine acting in ways that bring you joy. Imagine your world surrounded in love. Know that you are a good, honest and caring person and give yourself the loving kindness and respect you deserve. Your imagination can set a powerful intention for your life when you use it to visualize a new and more harmonious way to be.

When you set an intention, all the forces of the universe align themselves to manifest that which you visualize. It is wise to be careful how you use this powerful tool. You do receive whatever you focus on, if your focus and desire are strong enough. It is a Universal Law.

Remember to be grateful for your life. It is an incredible gift to be in a physical body. With this body you can do so many things to enjoy this world of beauty. Be grateful for all that you are learning now, even if, at times, it feels uncomfortable. Be grateful for all that you have, even if it does not seem to be enough. Gratitude awakens your mind to the greater truth within all things, and lifts your spirit into Alignment and Joy.

So remember your message from Archangel Gabriel today:

All that you have learned and all that has happened to you brought you to where you are now. Be grateful.

    Maniju and everyone else, If you try to be Angel-like and you keep trying, it does get easier. Eventually you learn to use your good thoughts and ignore others when they act 3D. It gets easier to release the ego, to not judge, to not argue and accept and tolerate others. Sometimes you need to not accept the wrong decisions of others or you have to accept these wrong decisions, i.e, at your workplace or with relatives. Every moment is a decision. If you tell your boss they are not using love to make their decisions, either it sinks in or you look for another job. If your mom criticizes you, warn her to stop or you will drift away.
    I gave up two friends recently. I couldn’t bear their behavior towards me any longer. I agree, it’s really tough and heartbreaking being human.
    When you keep trying to be more Angel-like you feel smarter, wiser and stronger. Decisions are easy because the rules are easy, i.e. unconditional love, compassion, caring, kindness, forgiveness, service, positivity, joy, peace, and no guilt, shame, judgment, fear, hatred, violence, aggression, etc. It feels like you have the whole universe as your support and Creator as your strength. It’s a wonderful and joyful feeling.
    If your life is hell, turn it around with love and positivity. It works. You will start seeing gifts and miracles.
    Just keep trying and trying, it will get easier. If you make a mistake, quickly forgive yourself, apologize to the other, move on, and keep trying.
    The days of “bad things happen to good people” are no more.
    BTW, visioning everyday all the wonderful things you want and need and believing they will be yours will help them come true. Don’t counter it with negative thoughts tho. If you do, quickly think the positive ones again. Do this as often as you can, like they are goals you are working towards.
    Saying prayers asking for help is always helpful. (I forget to suggest it because I’m so independent).
    Love and light to you and to all. I wish you success and peace.

    If angels were people they might give a different message. Does anyone in the higher realms realize the to be human is not easy?
