I heard you yesterday. You weren’t directly speaking to me but I heard your heart.
I see you. I feel you.
I know you work with a smile on your face when you would rather be covered up, floating in a puddle of tears. I know your heart feels like it’s pulling apart. I know there are unanswered questions and so many things you do not understand. I understand you can’t comprehend why those close to you behave the way they do.
Rest assured, little one, I have a much better vantage point.
Rest in the fact that I can see the entire picture.
Your only job is to remain poised in my love for you and you are succeeding in this task.
I am well pleased.
I love you. You are not alone.
An Angel Reminder: Poise is a natural effect of living in angel consciousness.
Poise is the quality to cultivate if you want to have more stability and confidence in your every day life. A poised manner exudes dignity and promotes peace. Contrary to popular belief, poise is not something that is learned in acting or charm school. Rather, genuine poise is the natural outgrowth of a balance inner nature. When our inner nature is balanced, we never lose our composure. Instead, we remain calm in mind and manner, no matter what the situation. Poise also has another meaning: to be suspended in a state of readiness for action. When we are poised, we are balanced both mentally and physically, at peace with but completely aware of our surroundings, able to reason and respond with thoughtfulness, clarity, and quickness of mind and body.
Wake up in the morning and decide that you will remain poised throughout your day. Write a declaration stating that regardless of the insanity around you in the world, regardless of the unhappiness, anger, and instability of the outside illusions, you will remain calm and centered and never lose your poise. As the angels to help remind you that each time your poise is threatened you must go back to your center of calmness and breathe deeply. Any action taken when we are calm, poised, and conscious of the angels will be the right action.
An Angelic Reflection: I will practice the art of poise in my everyday life, knowing that a calm center keeps the angels close to my heart.

From The Angels:
Self-Acceptance: You are a perfect child of God, and every part of you is wonderful. Your angels guide you to let go of negative self-judgments and to enjoy being you!
“You are much too hard on yourself,” your angels say to you through this card. Although you enjoy having high standards, it’s important to view yourself through loving eyes. Berating yourself only makes your spirit sink. Self-improvement comes from a positive mind-set.
See yourself through your angels’ eyes, and you will see someone who is a perfect and holy child of God. Although you have made mistakes in the past, there is nothing that you could have ever said, thought, or done that would change God’s love for you. The angels see past your surface mistakes; they see the beating heart of God’s love within you. They love you unconditionally, and they ask you to love yourself in the same way!
Intention: Your intentions create your experiences. What do you intend to happen? Make sure that your thoughts and feelings reflect your true intentions.
By drawing this card, the angels ask you to take an inventory of your expectations. What do you expect to happen today, tomorrow, or in the future? These expectations are the seeds of your intentions. An intention means that you have set a goal and intend to achieve it.
Your intentions drive your experiences. The angels ask you to choose and infuse your intentions with love. See yourself and others as happy, successful, and peaceful. By holding these spiritually minded intentions, you help yourself and others. The angels can help you replace negative mental habits with more empowering thoughts, if you ask for their assistance.
Support: God, the angels, and all who love, protect, and guide you are watching over you right now. When you take time to communicate with God and the angels, they are able to pour out power and strength into our lives.
This card reassures in the multitude of anxious thoughts within you. Divine love comforts you. They will comfort you with the energy of Divine love.
If you ever feel doubtful about your ability to help others, ask the angels to help you release these fears.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
In this quiet moment,
Still before your throne,
Conscious of your presence,
Knowing I am known.
In this quiet moment,
Set my spirit free!
In this quiet moment,
Make a better me!
St. Ignatius Loyola – 16th century
