I stood in front of the freezer cabinet at the local supermarket deciding which vegetarian patties to take out, when I noticed a trolley coming right at me and realised that the woman had not seen me! I moved back quickly to avoid being hit! The elderly woman was very surprised to see me standing there! I said to her 'Angels are invisible' and laughed. It happens a lot...this being invisible and people often get a shock when they almost fall over me! She stood next to me peering into the cabinet and I asked her what she was looking for. I told her the meals were all vegetarian. She said she didn't want vegetarian and was looking for gluten free meals because her dietitian had advised her to eat this way. I pointed out that all the meals were gluten free. She moved further on looking for gluten free meals with meat, when I was overcome with an urge to go up to her. I honestly didn't even know what would come out of my mouth and I found myself standing next to her with my arm on her shoulder and asking her why she had been advised to eat gluten free/lactose free food. Before she could answer I asked her if she was having stomach pain. 'Yes' she responded and before I could even think, out came a little line of the Beatles song 'All you need is LOVE' and with that she smiled and said 'You are probably right and my husband died recently'. By this point I had my hand on her hand and whispered into her ear...'Well I am your husband speaking through me to you now. He wants to say to you just be happy and that he is with you all the time'. To my surprise she responded by saying 'Yes I know, he is with me all the time'. I told her to go back to her dietitian and tell her that an Angel had appeared to her in the supermarket and told her all she needed was Love! I know that when significant people have died in my life I certainly felt a lot of pain in my stomach! It is painful to lose a loved one. We don't really know how to deal with grief very well in our Western culture and then it becomes a medical problem to be fixed! An Earth Angel is a human being who walks the world listening to their inner voice and is willing to do what that voice asks, no matter how ridiculous or silly it may seem. When I began following my inner voice's directions, my life started to change in incredible ways and miracles occur every day. The miracle is the change inside my mind and seeing the world through a different lens....the lens of LOVE, PEACE and JOY. I hope you will join me...it's not hard...you can have miracles in the supermarket!
