“One word placed into your own heart by an angel is more healing for the soul than a thousand words from outside taken in through the ear.” Jakob Lorber
Gabriel means “God is my strength” and Gabriel is famous as the angel who told Elizabeth and Mary of the impending births of their sons, John the Baptist and Jesus of Nazareth. She is also known as the angel who dictated the spiritual text of Islam, The Koran, to Mohammed and therefore gained fame as the “messenger” angel and Gabriel continues her role in the world helping parents as well as ‘human’ messengers.
Archangel Gabriel helps hopeful parents toward conceiving a child or guides them through the process of adoption. Besides helping parents to be courageous and strong (qualities we know parents need!) Gabriel also helps them to stay focused and in a state of blissful faith in order to create the best environment for their infant.
When a client’s ‘inner child’ needs some healing I invoke Gabriel to work with me during a session. I particularly remember a session where a client, let us call her Leah (not her real name) came to me for an Angel reading and said that she had no questions and wasn’t really aware of why she had come except for the fact that she realized it was time for a new career and had no idea what this should be. I was guided by Leah’s angels to ask her, “How do you think your inner child feels?” She answered immediately, “I think she is very angry.” I worked with Archangel Gabriel to provide some healing treatments for Leah’s inner child. At the same session with Gabriel’s help and mine Leah realized that she had been interested in animals and nature and being outdoors as a child and had always felt drawn to protect the environment but had never studied environmentalism. She had let the lack of a formal certificate deter her from her dream job – no longer – Leah left having already made a decision to work on helping to save the environment. Her inner child was upset that Leah had not followed her dream; however, as Leah discovered, it is never too late to become what we might have been or to do what we might have done – with the help of the angels.
Many of us still retain the remnants of past hurts and traumas and disappointments from childhood. So many of us have been hurt by parents, teachers, classmates and others which has, in some cases, diminished our original zest for life with which we entered this world. This has sometimes also resulted in distrust regarding ourselves and others. It is never too late or too early to heal these wounds through listening to the needs of our inner child and with the help of Archangel Gabriel heal and begin to shine brighter! So much healing can come to us with Gabriel’s help so why not check in with your inner child within the next few days as this is an especially high-energy week as we lead up to a transformational Solar Eclipse on the 26/27 of this month. This is yet another opportunity to close a chapter of our lives (or a whole book) and begin a new one. Some are calling this the “Great Shift” as it is a maximum time for potentially transforming-change over the next six months.
Do you still have some work to do with your inner child to remove any blocks that could be obstacles in the way of you creating something new?
This is what I do. I go to my sacred space which is in the room with my altar and I light a candle. I call in Archangel Michael for protection and begin to relax and breathe deeply. I drop into my heart centre and then invoke Archangels Gabriel and Raphael to be with me and to help me to connect to and heal “little Monica.” I tell my inner child that I love her and accept her completely and that I am here to listen if she would like to get anything off her chest. I listen without judgment (just as I do with my clients) and just ‘hold the space’ for her to emerge and communicate in whatever way she wishes. Depending on what happens I might ask the angels for some specific healing and/or might write in my journal following the session.
I counsel my clients who want healing for their inner child to ask Archangel Gabriel when they go to bed at night to work with them in their sleep when their ego is not standing guard and they are free of it. I suggest they may need to repeat this process over several nights, especially if there is still much to heal.
Gabriel also helps any of us whose life purpose involves art or communication. This powerful and strong angel helps us to overcome our fear and procrastination with regard to our artistic projects or our involvement in delivering spiritual messages and she helps us to speak our truth with integrity if we ask.
Here is Doreen’s beautiful invocation for you to use (although your own words will work just as well)
“Archangel Gabriel, I ask for your presence as I (describe the project). Please open my creative channels so that I may be truly inspired. Help me open my mind so that I may give birth to unique ideas. And please help me to sustain the energy and motivation to follow through on this inspiration. Thank you, Gabriel.” (ARCHANGELS & ASCENDED MASTERS)
Whether you wish to communicate with your inner child, help children, give birth to a child or a project or need help opening up your throat chakra and speaking your truth – Archangel Gabriel can help. I remember Doreen telling my class in 2006 the story of how her mother was able to conceive Doreen through prayer with the help of her church congregation as her mother and father were New Thought practitioners. Doreen’s mother taught her to manifest with prayer. I am certainly happy that Doreen’s mother chose to bring Doreen into the world.
