Each person I interview has something that stands out about their message or their character that forever touches me and changes me. Today that person is Gloria Messenger.
Gloria “The Angel Messenger” was one of the few people I have been in contact with in my life who within the first 3 minutes of meeting her was asking questions about me.
You see, I am the one who listens, I am the one who supports, nods, lifts up, I am the one people say they love to speak to because they feel so much better after having been with me.
That is me… I am the person who after a year of knowing someone will wonder “how can it be that they have not taken one moment to ask anything about me?”
So! When Gloria looked me in the eye immediately after the “nice to meet you’s” were complete and said, “how do you support this project?” I was stammering, thinking in my head, “a question about me?”
This person who is about to go before a camera and speak about herself in just a moment has enough space to think of me…. hmmmm, I thought, “I have met The Angel Messenger!”
Gloria immediately spoke as if she had a deep knowing regarding my personal situation. She asked for messages and delivered the messages she received.
Gloria offered to do an angel portrait and angel message for me in exchange for the video work I was doing with her.
How amazing to be asked “what do I receive from the people I interview in return for doing this work?”
How amazing to be asked why are people not giving you something in return for your work?
What a gift Gloria gave me! She saw me, she acknowledged the girl behind the camera.
Here is a photo of the angels that Gloria drew and presented to me a month after the interview was complete.
There is so much that has personal meaning for me in this portrait that I could write a book about it.
For today, I would like to share a little story about the significance of the angel’s name, Mem.
Mem is the 13th letter of the Hebrew Alphabet.
It is often used to represent water in Jewish Mysticism; “spring of Torah” or “spring of wisdom” arises from a mysterious source that is God.
This flowing stream of the inner wisdom can be expressed through the gift of mans speech.
Often Mem is used to represent communication and a deep flowing of meaning.
Communication and sharing words of meaning that come from my heart is my life’s work.
Mem, my angel, is a reminder that this communication I share is a gift.
My entire life I have received complements about my speaking and writing abilities, I do not think when I speak or write, I flow… like water, like Mem.
I also appreciate the connection with the Jewish faith.
I exist in this form today with thanks to the Jewish underground.
My Grandfather escaped the Ukraine on a stolen military horse refusing to fight in the Civil War. He survived and made his way to Canada via the Jewish underground; although my heritage is not Jewish my Grandfather worked for a Jewish blacksmith and was taken into the family as a son, where he learned the dialect and traditions of the Jewish faith.
During my own journey through this life I was taken into a Jewish families business as well, where they supported me and made me part of their family when I was without mine. My daughter also has a Jewish name partly in honor of the support and love the Jewish community has always shown to my family and I. To know that my angel’s name is Hebrew makes perfect sense to me.
Gloria also included an angel message for me.
The theme in the message was singular, “PEACE” within.
Mem spoke of my passion for peace.
“This is the gift of extraordinary ability to display peace in your self-expression. This does then offer the example to others and place you in a full-on expression.”
Mem spoke of me being on my path, that I am acutely aware when I venture off my path because I no longer feel the internal peace.
The words written by Gloria from Mem are filled with truth.
I am so aware of anything that is opposing peace, even to the point that if someone is telling a lie, I will start to cry.
I feel every action done and each spoken word’s true motivation.
When a person’s actions or words are not from a genuine place of love, the feeling of peace leaves me and I become very unsettled.
It has taken me 37 years to realize that I am not crazy, only aware.
Just because someone is dressed pretty, smiles lots and has Buddha statues placed strategically around their home does not reflect anything about their true character.
For so long I was doubting my inner knowing and trying to accept the presentation made by people as the truth, but now as I journey onward I am no longer blinded by externals. My feeling of peace lets me know when someone’s intentions are not of the highest vibration.
Mem’s message was confirmation that my knowing a truth within is of greater value to me than any external messages and that my connection to Mem the angel and Mem the spring of wisdom arises from the mysterious source that is God and is my heaven on Earth. I am blessed.
To Gloria, thank you for taking a moment to look at me, to ask about me and to acknowledge, appreciate and respect the gifts I give freely. With that action I know in my heart you are a true spiritual ligthtworker and you are The Angel Messenger.
