Have you lost your JOY?
By Peg Jones
We get busy with the day to day things, our jobs, our children, whether they are kids or young adults, our relationships an everything else in between, We get caught up in the planning, and dealing with organizations, government regs., paying our bills and dealing with our health, the doctors and everything else in between. We hear about the state of the world or of an incident to that are upsetting and then we see how it is all dragged out day to day on every media channel station that speaks about the state of our world.
I will stop there. I lost my self and forgot I was writing about JOY.
So we forget about our joy, because we are so busy dealing with life… that maybe troublesome or time consuming, and also our daily routine. Life can be crazy, funny, fun, disappointing, tiresome, overwhelming, and boring. We forget about the joy in life, and we forget how to find that joy. And so I asked the universe about joy, particularly some angels who love to talk about JOY…
Ok back to joy… Summer time is good time to talk about JOY, well anytime, I suppose. Do you sometime find that the times we say are going to be joyful; are the most stressful times too? I guess its how you choose to deal with these joyful/ stressful times. Like pre-wedding planning, and the holidays we have at the end of the year, and graduating from college or high School, or any of the other joyful times/ stressful times.
How can we keep these time a bit less stressful?
But that is not what I am particularly talking about. Although it is something to mull over, possibly.
What I am talking about is just going through day to day life, doing all what I wrote about above, but forgetting about the joy, as adults who are making transitions, with family friends and our careers, needs, wants, and day to day worries that keep us from the joy that use to be so easy to feel.
In speaking with friends recently, I mentioned something about forgetting the joy and how we have forgotten that the joy is still there. We just have to embrace it and to access it regularly.
I asked the angels about Joy, which by the way is one, their favorite things to speak about…They have given a few pointers, that I hear a lot, from them and others also. So they have encouraged me to write about how we can access our joy a bit more quickly. Of course they say that being appropriate when accessing the joy is a good idea to take into consideration.
These are some their ideas for us when wanting to invite joy into our lives again, when we have forgotten what it was… so here are some pointer they have shared.
- If life gets so very stressful for you, take that time for you to relax and to take total down time.
- When there are decisions to be made, be sure you have all the facts and then evaluate the pro’s and con’s of the decision
- Talk to the friends that make you laugh
- Do something different, that you would enjoy doing.
- Go outside, go to the beach, to a lake, or pond, or go the mountains or on a hike, embrace the beauty in your surroundings
- See a funny show or movie with friends or close relationship.
- Do fun activities with your kids, or grandkids
- Play board games with friends
- Sing by yourself or with friends and family.
- Giving your worries and stress to the Universe, the Angels too and know that they will help you to feel this joy again..
- Having a sense of humor helps too.
The list could be endless. But taking the time in reading this article, and thinking about JOY, in our lives, is a positive thing to consider. Especially if we forget that we truly deserve joy in our lives. And you know you do deserve to have this joy for yourself, and for your loved ones, even when it seems to impossible to think of this. Bringing the JOY in our lives and thinking of ways we can do this is something to consider. We all deserve this joy, to help with the stress and frustrations of our life.
So in thinking about joy and how to bring more in, I bet we all can come up with some really creative ways, and I am sure you all have some great ideas, for letting the joy, continue in our life.
I keep hearing that life wasn’t’ suppose to be this difficult, that balance of body mind and spirit can certainly help too. So get outside, enjoy the fresh air, and thank the angels, our higher power, friends, and family (those that bring us joy) for being a part of our life, and SMILE…..
Can you feel the JOY?
Sometimes, your joy is the source of your smile,
but sometimes your smile is the source of your joy.

The message from the Universe for the month June 2014
By Peg Jones
The weather for you , is finally beginning to settle down somewhat. The weather is getting warmer for those in the north in the USA after a long winter experience, for all who were living there.
We have a message for all for this new month coming up, June, 2014. So many milestones for each of you , graduations , weddings, changes due to moving or changing job. Each of you making changes or watching changes of others around you.
Of course, besides the changes and transitions in your lives, and those in your life, there are many changes on the world platform too. There more people waking up and seeing how spirituality plays in their lives. And there are changes in the awareness of people, on the financial front of national, worldwide and also personal levels. There has been more awareness of the food we eat and what we put into our bodies. We are finding that we are becoming more aware in wanting to each more organic meat , fruits and vegetables..W e are seeing how a lot of what you eat, is not for your higher good , and you keep track of what you are eating and drinking.
There is more awareness of finding out the truth of who and what we are.. What our actual origin are consisted of.. And are we who we think we are?
Man is waking up to finding the TRUTH of all aspects of what a human being truly is. Many are waking up the fact that they are not only a human being, we are spiritual beings in every way too. We are waking up to the fact that we are capable of so much more that what we have told in the past and what we can do to develop further on our path.
We are finding out, that there are different ways we can communicate with spirit, our guides, angels, loved ones, animal totems, and the elementals.. We are finding that we can pick who and when we want to communicate through one these channels or several at the same time.
We are finding the Universe is very kind and that it provides us what we truly need. The quote that comes to me at this time
“God never gives us any more than we can handle.”
We are learning the concept of being grateful for all that we have in our lives on the earth plane. That when we thank the universe for all that we have, that more is given to us, when we are truly grateful and when we start to do t he footwork for what we want to have help with from our guides or our angels .
Also we are finding that when we live with positive intent that our hopes, dreams and wishes truly will be manifested for us..
The best part of our new awareness, is that if we think it, it can happen for us.. For we are co- creators in every way, possible.
Love is at the heart of this new awareness, and that when we spread this love, the universe is very happy about that.. The universe then truly wants us to succeed, in what we came to earth for, and to live our life purpose, with hope and the confidence that all things are possible, when we have positive intent.
I hear constantly, don’t for get, no matter what we can do anything we want to do. The final point I want discuss is know that, the universe loves, no matter what .And that we are worthy of this love and ability to help us to succeed in our new corner of the journey of love.
The angels remind us how precious we are and how the universe are behind us in every way..
Don’t ever doubt our love dear child.
Thank you and have a wonderful day, today.

Happy New Year 2014
Happy New Year to all for a wonderful year we are about to embark. Let put the sad and negative things behind us, not dwell too much on this and look forward to what this New Year can bring to us. For some that may be difficult, but for most of us we can set goals make plans for a fun and productive year. Try something new, go to a class, learn a new craft or do something you have never done before and wanted to do it. It’s a clean slate and we can set those goals high or low, many or few. The angels are telling that setting priorities and completing one goal at a time is a good way to start. Focusing on what is most important and then going down the list, day by day or week by week.
I am hearing to be observant of the people who you meet as you go through your day… They may be the person that can help with something specific. Starting your day with a plan in mind and planning at least fun thing each day is a good way to keep on track.. To allow joy and fun in our life is so important and the angels remind us of this too…
I am being reminded to talk about being in a state of being grateful each day is a way to help us actually feel this. Also we might want to write down three to five things we are happy that had happened that day. Keeping a journal is a great way to keep track and then do your grateful list and keeps us in the direction of being focused on the positive. The angels are reminding me that yes there can some things in our life that are not pleasant …or are upsetting. However they remind we can turn around a situation or issue to benefit ourselves and all concerned if there is any way. We all have problems and we all have things in our life that we feel are holding us back or we have people to blame because things are not working in our favor. But if we really think about all aspects of the issue is this the truth of the situation? We can think of solutions and can think ways to think differently. Just because the committee in your head says it’s this way is it truly the whole truth?
How many interpretation of this issue are there that you know of, including your own opinion? You have the right to find a answer to the solution in a way that is pleasing to you and helpful for others is they are involved..
Looking at the big picture of all that is and not focusing on the narrow view can be very helpful too… Waiting for others to help usually doesn’t happen.. We are the ones that have to step out and make the first moves, even if it is the hardest thing we have ever done.
Being open to possibilities, and to know that if something negative has happened, but to see the options in a positive light. Yet sometimes we continue to remain in the negative mind-set…. That is fine, and it’s your choice, but you have options … We all have options… We can get guidance from spiritual sources or earthly sources such as counselors, coaches, close friend, or clergy. But in the long run it’s up to us to begin the healing and to switch from our ego thinking to our heart healing… So it may include forgiveness, it may mean smiling when we don’t feel like it. There are so many options, than that of feeling angry, sad, hurt, abandoned, or ignored. Some of these feeling have to go through a process of recovery, and grieving… Loss is so hard for us to understand, but when we understand the big picture of all that is then it’s possibly a bit easier, but it not a done deal.
The angels lastly remind me that sometimes the universe helps us to find our to what we need to accomplish, which forces us to move on …In time we do understand and take back our power and to go forward…. Happy New Year! Note:I am offering 12 month 2014 readings. Check my site for particulars… http://www.pegsangelicalwhispers.com
2014 has come and will be almost gone within 31 days. How has the year measured personally for you? Has it been the year you had hoped for? Did you reach your dreams or goals or did you generate new goals for yourself?
There is an angel card in the Doreen Virtue Archangel Oracle Deck that is called Life Review. I always find it interesting to take a life review at the end of each year. Asking the questions that were written above are good ones to think about. It helps you to see where you have gone and where you are headed for the next year.
The angels say that when we look back, on the years events, try not to look on the events of the year, as whether or not they were a good experience, or a bad experience. They suggest to look at the event as to what the amount of growth occurring in each even. Looking more deeply, with this question in mind, can help you to see, what the growth was, for you during the year.
For me, this year has been a year of interesting events, some which I will never forget. I have found over this year, that
my angels and higher power have truly helped me to see exactly, what I needed to learn and to experience. The one thing that I learned the most, is that if there is something I want to accomplish, all I have to do is imagine it to truly happen for me. I may not understand how it’s going to all play out, in the end, the main thing is to take the tiny steps of moving toward that goal, I have for myself. Once the intention is put out there, the universe and all there, to help me to make my dream become a big possibility for myself. We are truly co creators for what we want to happen in our own lives. As we look back we can notice who the people we met throughout our day, during this past year, in helping us to help our dream, become more clear The angels and all in our universe, ask us to notice the others signs, that let us know the universe is with us, on our path.. Noticing the synchronicity that happen daily, and the ideas that we may have that will validated by the different signs of the angels and guides throughout day.. Something we may hear or see, in listening to music or something we have just read in a book or magazine that may help us on our path.
With these tiny steps, that we take in helping to achieve our goals, we find that it does come together, in many different ways..We also find out if our idea or goal, was something that was worth in pursuing too. Evaluation is important, as we are walking our path, or striving for our dreams. We certainly want to be sure the dream or goal is truly valid and something that is truly in our favor, for it to turn into worthwhile goal. Many times our goal doesn’t materialize for us in the manner or in the time period, we would like it to happen in . Sometimes there are more important things we need to get out of the way, for it to truly be a part of our life. Another way of saying this is to understand that all happens on the earth plane is that the timing is not of our own earthly timing, It is of the universe timing or Divine timing.
The angels asked me to share this message for you from several of the Archangels.
”The years come, the years go. Each year is a year of new experiences and knowing that all will make sense, as the years, go by. Also, to understand that we all have different lessons to experience, and to know that each experience, is like a separate piece to the puzzle, of what we call life. To know that the lessons we are learning are lessons that were decided before our birth. They can go either way, with the intention of what is best for our soul, or the worst for our soul. This is because of our free will, that was given to all of us, when we came in this world. The paths that we walk are based, on so much, and when we understand our path, we can usually make the choices necessary for our soul’s experience. It’s not that we don’t know what our path is during our lifetime; it’s usually that we are remembering what we are here for. And when we come together and share ourselves, we do begin to remember what our true path is, and how to live out our life in a truly blessed way. Keeping a open mind of who you all are, and that not all are alike, yet you, are in so many different ways.. Accepting the differences and respecting of beliefs and values, can make life very enriching and interesting in so many ways. We ask each of you to look at the differences as a way to gain new knowledge, and to embrace the sameness of who are too.”
Wishing you all a blessed holiday season in the way you celebrate this time of the year. Happy New Year, to all.
