The Miracles of Archangel Michael

I read The Miracles of Archangel Michael because I wanted to get more of a sense of this Archangel. I was not brought up to believe in angels and, as I have said before, I did not used to believe in them.
So I achieved my goal. I now have a much clearer idea of who Archangel Michael is, and of his energy and what he represents.
Archangel Michael is the angel of protection. He also gives confidence. If you are experiencing fear, you can call on Archangel Michael to protect you.
The Miracles of Archangel Michael mostly tells the same story over and over again – loads of people have narrowly escaped car accidents or had other problems with their cars, and Archangel Michael rescued them and protected them. If you drive a lot and/or have a fear of having a collision, driving off the road or some type of car accident, The Miracles of Archangel Michael is for you.
This book contains a couple of useful bits of information: you can call on Michael to provide psychic protection, and he will. Unfortunately, this was not explored very much in the book.
The other piece of information I found particularly useful is that Michael is a “Mr. Fix-It”. You can call on him when something,such as a household appliance or your car, stops working and he will make it work again. I have tried this several times, on my central heating and on my TV remote. It definitely worked, but unfortunately, the remote has now stopped working again. Michael, where are you???
If you don't know much about Archangel Michael and you want to find out more, this is as good a place as any to start.
However, the best book I have found about Archangels so far is Angel Astrology 101, which is a very practical guide.

Are We Listening to Our Children? Part 2

This blog post originally published on the Advice 4 Parenting blog.  My ebook Affirmations for Parents describes ways parents can improve communication with their children. 

Are We Listening to Our Children?

I was speaking with a youth worker not too long ago who said that many parents have no idea what their children are getting up to, They send their children to school, to church or to the youth club, and they think their kids are okay, but they really don't know what their children do once they leave their sight.

This put me in mind of my church's group for young people, which I had attended as a teen. The group had a good reputation for being a place where teens could talk about what was on their minds. Youngsters would come from miles around to take part on Sunday mornings, even if they had no other involvement with the church.

I remember once saying to my mother, who was an elder of the church, that some of the young people were in gangs, or had friends who were gang members. She dismissed this, saying, “”Nobody at that church is in a gang”.

When you don't listen to your child and pay attention to what's on her mind, what matters to her, you miss an opportunity to bond with him or her.

Young people want to connect with their parents and share what is of value to them, Every time you avoid listening to your child, you miss what could potentially be an wonderful chance to strengthen your parental bond. Even if you don't agree with what he is saying, it is important that you show an interest in what your child cares about.

You may also miss the chance to address a very serious issue. I recall another woman, who worked with a group of teens, saying that her organisation was working on a project about sexual assault, and how to make the youngsters aware of the need to protect themselves. One day, her own daughter told her she had been assaulted by the mother's boyfriend some years earlier. When the mother said, “Why didn't you tell me?”, the daughter replied, “I did. You told me to wash”. The mother was obviously devastated by this.

Busy, stressed parents may be in denial about their children's activities, and even about threats they may be vulnerable to. When we make time to listen to our children, we have the chance to understand what is really on their minds.
