The encounter with the Angel began ordinarily enough. I had been out running errands in the midst of another busy day. After picking up some much needed office supplies I got the urge to visit another store. It hadn't been my intention to make another stop but before I knew it I was in the Winners parking lot. I checked my watch, reminded myself that I didn't really have time to spare, then surrendered to the urge and entered the store.
I wasn't there for more than a few heartbeats when I found myself encountering a group of special needs women and their caretakers. As I walked by I smiled as I heard the group talk excitedly about the treasures around them.
I moved to another aisle where I could still hear them and see a few treasures for myself. As I was looking at some decorative items I felt a presence nearby. I looked to see a young and beautiful Soul from the group watching me. When I smiled at her she came over to me, took my hand in hers, and stood quietly beside me.
In the few moments we stood there holding hands, not speaking, I felt an incredible wash of Peace and Love flow through me. Her energy was calm, loving and one of the highest in vibration I've encountered in a Human.
I sent her a silent 'thank you' and she smiled at me then went back to her group. I had to blink back tears at the feelings coursing through me. Gone was my tiredness... gone was any physical discomfort from pushing my body past its physical limits...gone was the need to rush through the day trying to get things done as quickly as possible. In their place was Blessed Peace.
I slowly walked from the store and sat for a few minutes in my car reliving the experience and feeling immensely grateful for what had transpired. As I drove home I marveled at how effortlessly this Beautiful Soul was able to embody the Peace I have to search for. She knew how to simply Be.
From now on, like her, I am going to focus on Being... not just doing. Because I was touched by an Angel who so lovingly showed me how.
