Wendy's February Post Bag Q & A

Dear Wendy: Is there an angel for the month of February, I would like to know this as my dear friend Sally is going to be in hospital for surgery during this month. Cally B


Dear Cally: Barachiel is the Angel of Compassion and Patience and the colour of the gown that this angel wears is pale blue. This angel will give you the understanding that your friend needs during her hospital stay and for her recovery from surgery, which will take time. She might feel impatient and want to do more than is good for her, but you can advise and guide her. You can also help her as there are things that she should not be doing at this time, which you can do for her. The Angel Barachiel is the angel for February, a time of year when the weather is cold and the nights are dark and who creates a stillness and rest period, when we can love and look after our energies before the bursting back to life and activity. in springtime. Mehriel is also an angel for February and this angel supports those who study and those who work with new ideas and their imagination. If you are wanting to study or research this year or develop new ideas, now is the time to do this.

Questions and Answers -

Fred asks: Hi Wendy, do we choose our life before we are born and choose our present circumstances?



Hi Fred: There are a variety of answers to this depending on whether you are a believer in reincarnation, the Judeo-Christian faith or Spiritualism, for instance.



The Hindu reincarnation theory is that we do not choose our circumstances in this life because we are given them in response to our spiritual accomplishments (or lack of them) in previous lives, the good rewarded with privileges and the bad, given a gruellingly hard life. Because those who are suffering are also those who have least education, they are unable to defend themselves of having committed some dastardly deed in a previous life that has justified their suffering. My problem with the theory of reincarnation is that if we were learning from each life, our world would be progressing spiritually. do not remember how or why.

Druidry

Druidry is the ancient oral doctrine of the Celtic people. People from a variety of traditions and cultures gather to celebrate the druidic way of life and meet Druid sympathisers at outdoor camps in honour of the seasons.

I attended one of these events and was very impressed by the quality of spirituality. About eighty people come together in a large circle to honour the sun at the summer solstice. Firstly, we got together in smaller groups to design a role we would like to play in the ritual celebration. This communal activity gave us all an opportunity to get to know members of our smaller group, then we all came together in the larger group to re-enact the passage of the sun in relation to the earth. For those who are not very visual, this clearly explained about the movement of the sun, earth  moon, our solar system and the stars beyond. It was creative, enjoyable fun, and we learnt about the seasons also. There were many workshops from eminent teachers on offer. Each day there were a number of activities to choose from, including walks, talks and arts projects. In the evenings, there was poetry, music and dance. There was an emphasis on caring for the environment and also being aware of the needs to other people. I met many interesting and likeable people and returned home rested and more connected with nature and other people.
