“To listen is to lean in, softly, with a willingness to be changed by what we hear.”  - Mark Nepo


In 2014, a video went viral of a 3-year-old child arguing with his mother and interrupting her by saying “Listen Linda.” It was hilarious. He was very serious and consistent as he argued with her relentlessly. None of her rational arguments phased him and everything was met with his “Listen Linda” or “Lookit Linda” comments. As I watched it again tonight and laughed at the little guy, it struck me how much that shows us how we act towards spiritual guidance at times. Indeed, I have offered a sarcastic “really angels?” as well as many “but God” arguments. I am sure neither was laughing hysterically at my acting like a 3-year-old child.


Dear Angels, we can be quite stubborn, much like the child in the video, when our mind is set on something. Getting your way by having cookies for breakfast is a big deal to a young child. As adults, however, our stubbornness can be about something that hugely impacts our lives.


Dear Ones, we watch and are aware that many times you seek instant gratification and when we do our best to slow you down, you treat us as though we do not know what we are talking about. When you are insistent on going in one direction even though we have clearly shown another path, we have no choice but to let you have that particular experience. We will continue to try to get through to you; however, just like the mother in the video, we watch as you self-sabotage and cringe when you touch the hot stove. We do understand that it is not an easy thing to be so limited in the human body. That is why we take our job so seriously. We only want the best for you. We want you to experience life with ease and grace. All of that does not change the outcome though, Dear Ones, as you can choose for yourselves in every situation. If you want cookies for breakfast then most likely that will happen. We would ask you to put some thought into it and take your time with each decision that you make. If at any point you want our help, we are standing by you ready to assist.


Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.


Today, I promise to listen more closely to your guidance and stop resisting.
