Traditionally this is the Season of Joy, and in this tradition I would like to share a passage from our book Awakening to Angels by Belinda Bras-Nel.
“Joy is almost more of a Heavenly term than an Earthly one, exactly because it contains a snippet of Heaven, or perhaps, too, because the belief in joy has almost died out at an Earthly level.
“We understand that everyone may comprehend the essence of joy in a different way, and because it contains a bit of Heaven, the concept often flies over the head of souls who are too closely bound to Earth. Yet joy is within everybody’s reach, and it really depends on whether you pray for and believe it for yourself or not.
“Joy is much like the concept of God and love. It is there to be embraced and understood, or simply to be enjoyed by anyone who allows himself to be swept away by it.
“A good time to invite joy into your life is when you feel tired and discouraged. A good way to invite joy is to pray for it. Ask God and your angels to help you become receptive to it once again. Ask regularly, even daily, for joy to fill your life.
“Some of you have convinced yourselves that you no longer know what joy feels like. This is the perfect time to ask to experience joy in your life again, and to notice its presence when it does appear.
“Joy brings the emotion of feeling carefree when souls are in a space of trust and realise that they are being cared for by Spirit. In this space, the negative scales on the eyes are exchanged for a clear view of the blessings they are surrounded by.
Joy, therefore, isn’t something you have to work hard at or something you have to prepare for yourselves and for others. Joy is a belief and a lifestyle cultivated by a decision to experience and notice it in your life every day.”
