Standing safely on a fenced cliff overlooking the Grand Canyon is much like standing in the presence of an angel. Its magnificence fills you with awe and wonder. One look from the dizzying height at the glorious multicolor view that stretches as far as the eye can see shifts something within you, and your perspective on life is forever changed. You feel humbled and strangely peaceful, even blessed by this spectacular evidence that the world is beautiful and so much bigger than we can ever hope to understand.
Science tells us that this stunning gape in the earth adorned with towering reddish rocks was created by steady, centuries-patient river water on stone. Those rushing currents caressed the rocks over and over again, repeating the same message to the seemingly unyielding stone – you are more than this. Fulfill your potential. And the rocky land became deeper, wider, and ever more beautiful until it grew into what we know today as the Grand Canyon.
Archangel Gabriel, the Messenger, is like that river. He patiently speaks to us every day of our lives, encouraging us with the message of our own potential. Whenever we feel hard and unwilling to change, Gabriel is there to guide us and help us carve our paths through the canyons of life. Each and every one of us has the power to grow and change. We are meant to be one with our higher selves, vibrating with that same humbling wonder we see in nature’s most magnificent creations. Sometimes it just takes a little help from our good angels to get us there.
