I met an angel in disguise at Safeway.
Have you ever been approached by a homeless person and pretended they weren’t there? Did you ignore their presence and continue on your way? The next time you are approached and asked to give money I would like for you to open up to a new experience. You may be surprized with the outcome. I was.
I had just finished shopping at Safeway and as I walked through the “Out” door in the direction of my vehicle, a scruffy faced man wearing a torn shirt and a tattered overcoat said with a smile, “Do you have any money you can spare?” At first I was going to say my usual line of, “No, I give in many ways.” However; this time I was divinely guided to open up to him. I stopped and turned to face him and said, “Yes, I do. I will give you money if you share with me your words of wisdom.” He looked at me puzzled and replied, “I don’t have any wisdom.” I smiled and then repeated, “I will give you money when you share with me your words of wisdom.” He looked away for a moment, then his eyes met mine and he said without hesitation, “Do what you need to do for you and the rest will follow.” Well!! I had truth bumps go up and down my spine. My whole body tingled. My eyes widen as these words were exactly what I needed to hear. My Higher Self opened my eyes for me to see that we are not strangers. I felt a sense of oneness. That he was not lost. That he did not need to be fixed, healed, or changed. I then said to this angel before me who stood in his earthly disguise, “Thank you. You are a brilliant man.” I then gave him his money. He nodded with a knowing smile and walked away.
The next time a homeless person asks you for money, ask them to share their wisdom with you in exchange. I would love to hear the wisdom you receive.
Divine messangers are all around us if we choose to see beyond the illusion.
