Your Angels have given me a small vacation for a few days, Peeps, but we are back, with more Angel stories than ever. Can you believe that even on this trip they were ever at my side? And continuously encouraging me to continue to dream big so that you can be encouraged, too? The story:

Arriving into Bradley airport in Connecticut after returning from Michigan, I headed for the baggage claim. Walking idly, in no rush, I ambled to the conveyor belt to wait for the luggage to appear. Although I was comfortable in my spot, I began idly to ramble closer to the belt and stopped, watching it. No luggage was coming, so I idly shifted my gaze and, idly looking around, idly fixed it on the T-shirt of a passenger standing close by. My jaw dropped when I idly read the writing on that T-shirt. The message:
Dream It
Believe It
Achieve It
Expect Success

Wanting to rub my eyes to make certain of what I was seeing, I read the T-shirt again:
Dream It;
Believe It;
Achieve It;
Expect Success

The message was abundantly clear. Angelic guidance was instructing me in how to achieve success in the dreaming process. First of all, a dream must be present. Pick one. Perhaps start with a small one, an easy one. Secondly, believe with all your heart that your dream will come true. Simultaneously expecting success will result in your achieving the object of your dream.

Angelic instruction in how to achieve the object of your dreams:

Dream It
Believe It
Achieve It
Expect Success

As you dream a thing and believe it, you achieve the object of your dream by expecting success. As further encouragement, your Angels tell me that if you have the courage to go beyond your thoughts, you will meet with success not found in common hours. Happy dreaming!

Your Angels have spent some time discussing guidance, guidance given to you, and how to recognize guidance. In most of these posts, they have exhorted you to practice, practice, practice listening to your highest thoughts and to the guidance sent your way from the Heavenly realms. Today, they encourage you also to begin a daily spiritual practice through their recipe for happiness.

Recipe for Happiness: find a comfortable chair and sit quietly for one minute—60 short seconds, ignoring any thoughts that come in, that is, don’t grab them and follow them. Do this every day, consistently, until 60 seconds starts to seem like a short time. Then you are ready for two minutes. When two minutes seems like a short time, go to three minutes, and so on, to a maximum of 20 minutes. When the time is up, rise and attend to other business.

Take it slow and easy; there’s no rush. You have all the time in the world. If you like, set the microwave timer for 60 seconds so that you can totally relax, knowing that you will be alerted when the time is up. Yes, your life is hectic. Yes, you have a gazillion commitments. Yes, everybody is vying for your time. Yes, you are so up to your elbows in fighting alligators that you cannot even begin to think about draining the swamp. And yes, you do have 1 minute—60 teensy seconds—each day to sit. Everybody has 60 short seconds, once a day. Start today with this simple exercise and watch an amazing life unfold for you.
