This morning was odd, the energy around me fluctuating and energy shifting tangibly. Incredibly suspicious, because I know what that means I head off to the "In Between". Sometimes the feeling of being able to retreat somewhere to think clearly and be with the Guides I love is like savouring the taste of a good cheese or refreshing drink of water on a hot day. Brings all the sensations of delight.
I stand on the beach, curl my toes into the white sand and just listen to the sound of peace, small wavelets whispering to each other as they race up the beach, in giddy delight, to caress the sand and scamper back. I look out over the sea and admire the sheer size of the moon that Jet has placed in my world. I chuckle to myself. I love that the Guides add extra knowledge and especially vision to my world.
The air shifts audibly and I hear the lightly shift of wings. I smile to myself as light fingers of energy lightly touch my face and I turn. Cassandra has landed beside me on the beach, I catch a glimpse of her wings shifting into energy around her. Russets, golds, burnt oranges, like being in a sudden wind in the Autumn, a myriad of coloured leaves twirling around her. This beautiful Angel has been with me for a couple of months now and her energy is blissful. She radiates delight of being, the warm of long-lost friends and sheer joy. I have been honoured to be taught by her and by the shifts and changes I know it is also time to let her go. I have all of my beloved guides stored in parts of my memory, each one so unique, so patient and so loving.
Beautiful eyes survey me lovingly. She smiles. "It is never good-bye, it never is" she says gently. I nod. I know this but I miss them dreadfully. "Come walk with me" she offers a hand and the colours of russets, oranges and reds, radiate for an instance off her skin in the sunlight. I smile, take her hand and the beach disappears. We are in a meadow the sun is high in the sky and the grass is knee-length, the wind whips playfully around, pulling on us "come play" echoes in wind whispers and I giggle in delight. Always in the Off worlds, the surreality of the colours here tease my mind with their elusiveness in my trying to bring them alive in this reality. Cassandra laughs and grabs my hands to bring my brain back to her. How can laughter make someone feel so alive by just hearing it? The Angels always have this effect, always. My heart expands with the sheer joy of being loved so completely.
At her laughter, small heads pop up around the grass, pixie like, elfin in their eyes and ears, small beings squeal in delight at her presence and immediately the air seems to be filled with these small cherub like Angels. They head straight for us. I laugh out loud for it seems Cassandra is a beacon to all. I'm fascinated, small chiming bells seem to be radiating from the small cherub Angels, and whispers like vibrational hums radiate also off them. They are in multiple shades of colours, each so unique in both their appearance and their colour that I draw my breath in delightedly.
All vying for Cassandra's attention they cluster around her like small flying children. She leans down and whispers to them, eyes gleaming and like one they turn to look at me. I smother laughter, they look at me solemnly and all move suddenly in a blur of wings. I am momentarily startled to be surrounding by these small beings, iridescent eyes in multiple shades all survey me with giggling laughter in their depths. Cassandra laughs again at my expression and the small cherubs echo the laughter like wind chimes.
I smile over them at Cassandra and ask "What are they?" She laughs "Angels of course. We are in all shapes and all sizes. Children resonate more with Angels who look like them or they can empathy with. Angels come to suit all purposes and choose what they are happiest being. Come on, they want to show you something". Small hands pluck at me, and chiming laughter surrounds me as they pull me across the meadow. It is incredibly infectious to be with such happy beings and I am enjoying myself immensely. Laughter bubbles and I cannot contain it. The pace increases until we are running across the field in a blur of colours of the rainbow and more. Suddenly we stop, and I try unsuccessfully to contain my laughter.
We are at the edge of the field and just down below us is a musical stream, the water shining like crystal light, whispering to itself and tumbling over rocks and pebbles down through the field. The Cherub like Angel quiet and Cassandra leads the way down to the stream. The water is stunning to watch, like a living thing in crystal light, the noise of it melodic and calming. Cassandra stoops and pulls from the stream, a handful of water. It immediately solidifies into a large tear drop, solid in appearance with rainbow colours radiating from it. She turns and it is the first time that I have seen her slightly sad. She holds out the tear drop to me and I solemnly take it. The Cherub Angels are quiet, silent and listening.
"Take this, a part of me, a memory. Shaped like a tear, it is not to be shed. It is to remind you of me, the time spent, the journey and most of all the love". I hold the large tear drop in my hand, it radiates all the warmth, understanding and beauty of Cassandra, enclosed in this drop. I look at her and smile. "I will so miss you, I have loved every moment of being with you. Thank you". The Cherubs hum in vibration, and Cassandra smiles her beautiful smile.
I'm on the beach, the wavelets crawl up the beach "show me, show me" crawling over each other in haste. Cassandra, the Angels and the stream and meadow are gone. I am back in my world. I look at my hand and the large tear drop glistens in the sunlight, warm as a caress, bright as crystal light. I sigh gently and look out to the sea. Cornelius lands beside me and stands with a silvery hand on my shoulder.
"It is never good-bye" he echoes Cassandra's words. "I know" I mumble and close my hand around the crystal tear drop. His hand tightens for a moment and we look out over the sea for timeless moments. "When you are ready, your new Guide is here". I nod. "When I am ready".
