As I was walking through a parking lot the other day, I heard a man screaming into his cellphone, “It’s time to settle the score. I’m sick and tired of this!” He was using a lot of foul language, and it was obvious he was beyond enraged. It scared me.
I quickly entered my car, locked the doors, and drove away. It was a moment that started me thinking.
What is it, exactly, to “settle a score?” The definition tells us it means to punish someone for something they’ve done in the past that you can’t forgive.
The man’s face and voice stuck with me. I knew it was no coincidence that I had encountered him, and his rage, that particular day. I knew I needed to dig in.
So, I meditated. I asked my angels, guides, and masters for guidance. It was a deep internal journey. I also asked myself some tough questions. The more questions I asked, the more seemed to come up. It caused me to sort through some seriously dirty laundry of my own.
So, why am I sharing this with you? Too often, when we are shaken up by someone else’s behavior, we don’t take it as a sign from our angels to pay attention. Instead, we go into blame and judgment. We allow our fear to get the best of us. Our angels communicate with us in all sorts of ways. Often, we want our angel communication to be feathers, and feel good, and while that may be the case, angels also shake us up to get our attention.
The next time someone is rude, or a stranger is behaving in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, instead of reacting with fear or anger, I invite you to get still and go within. Ask the question, “Did this happen in my presence for a reason?” Then ask, “What do you want me to learn from this?” I promise, if your angels have a lesson for you, they will most definitely let you know.
