Introducing Jodie Helm and the Archangels

About Jodie Helm

(I have been reading Jodie’s articles on Medium for close to a year and I am astounded by the quality of her and the Archangel’s messages. When something moves me the way her material does, I want it to be part of my experience. This is why I asked her to let me publish and promote her material. It is also why I asked for permission to publish the Seth material, channeled by Jane Roberts, and the material channeled through Daniel Scranton by The Arcturian Council. If you think the material published here will help you and the people around you, please share it with them. It is time for all of us to wake up, wise up, and rise up to greater awareness and understanding. We are all in Being and Creation together –partners in evolution. – Pete)

Jodie falls under the “Spiritual, not Religious” label, if a label is even necessary. Her channeled messages are for everyone, regardless of religious or non-religious affiliations. She does not practice any traditional religion, and neither do the Archangels she channels. The messages she shares are all loving, hopeful, and encouraging. The Archangels number one message to every person in the world is that they are loved unconditionally and not judged.

If you have a question you would like to ask the Angels, send an email to asktheangels222@gmail.com. Please keep in mind that the Angels do not give information that is too personal, specific to the future (general questions only), or that could put anyone in danger, such as secretive material.

According to Jodie,

1. The Angels are always near us, and they will help us, always acting in our best interests, when we ask.

2. God and the Angels love everyone unconditionally. They don’t favor any religion or group of people. They don’t pick sides in disputes, and they don’t judge us.

3. This is a time of great change on Earth. We’re on the way to a better world and way of living. All we have to do is work together to make it happen.

4. We’re shifting from living in separation and fear to a mindset based in unity and love. If we open our minds to new possibilities, anything is possible. It won’t be the world’s governments that change things, it will be the masses.

 

Biography: Jodie Helm

Jodie Helm was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. After a career in education spanning twenty-six years, she retired and began to seek knowledge in the many areas she’d always wanted to explore but never had the time to investigate.

Jodie started with Reiki and became a certified Master. She believes Reiki opened up some kind of spiritual connection that intensified and grew, leading to channeling a group of Archangels who call themselves the Collective Consciousness of the Archangelic Realm, which she shortened to C-CAR. Shortly after meeting them, she realized that her life purpose was to help people by sharing their messages during this time of great change.

Jodie has never felt alone, even in the darkest of times. She always believed God was with her, and she grew to understand that the Archangels, as well as her higher self, were with her, also. Their partnership is not new, as they have worked together through many lifetimes, always with the goal of helping others through difficult times.

The Shift

What is the Shift?

The Shift refers to the elevation of the Earth from the third dimension which, if you were born before 2012 is all you’ve known, to the fifth dimension where it currently exists. Eons ago, the Earth was a very different place where people were united under the umbrella of humankind. It was a peaceful, happy, beautiful place where God’s creations – people – came to experience a corporeal life and, in turn, create using their own special gifts.

To make a long story short, mankind behaved in such a way that deteriorated their existence to the point of necessitating the descent of Earth to the third dimension. This change is reminiscent of the casting out of Adam and Eve. Life went from being joyful, peaceful, and fulfilling to a place of darkness, fear, and isolation.

Life in the Third Dimension

From that time on, cooperation was exchanged for competition, separation replaced unification, and direct communication with The Creator of All was mostly lost. Instead of using our God-given gifts to create a life of fulfillment, we lived from a place of fear based on past experiences which we worked diligently to overcome, so they would not replicate in the future. The present, then, has been spent looking back at past failures, so we could avoid dealing with them again. Enjoying the present became a rarity.

How many of us work in jobs that we love? Do we use our gifts in a way that makes us feel useful and fulfilled, or do we settle for jobs that make us feel more secure, so we don’t have to worry so much about the future? How much of our time is spent trying to help others less fortunate as opposed to working hard to get ahead of the pack? The answer is, most of us.

Life in the Fifth Dimension

The fifth dimension is very different from the third dimension in many ways. Life is easier as well as more joyful. In the fifth dimension, people feel connected to other people around the world. Instead of thinking about what’s best for the individual or smaller groups, thoughts and actions revolve around what is best for mankind in its totality. Local and national concerns are exchanged for global concerns and how actions affect everyone. There is no “us” and “them”; there is “we”.

The fifth dimension is based in love and unity. People work together instead of competing against one another. And people awaken to spirituality and make connections with entities of higher dimensions, like God, Angels, Ascended Masters, and Higher Guides. I have a connection with a group of Archangels. It’s easier, now, than you may think.

So, What’s the Holdup?

Actually, we can see signs of positive changes all around us. Look at the Me Too and Black Lives Matter movements formed to put an end to widely accepted practices that have been going on for decades or longer and showing people a better way of doing things and affecting change.

The media would have us believe that the end of the world is coming. In a sense it is, although it’s the end of the world as we know it, being replaced with a better world where everyone works together in harmony.

The problem is, most people don’t realize what’s happening and continue to live in the third dimension paradigm. It will take time for people to catch up. In the meantime, there are people like me who have jobs to do. Some of us inform, some of us guide, and some of us spread love, among other things. We volunteered for the job, even though most of us don’t remember doing so, since it was before we were born.

The Archangels I channel call themselves the Collective Consciousness of the Archangelic Realm, C-CAR for short. They told me that people like me, who have come to help others, will sow the seeds. Our children will nourish them. Their children will harvest them. So, it will take some time.

Effects of the Shift

Right now, people are in transition. There are side effects, like emotional upheaval, which needs to happen so we can process old, negative emotions like fear and anger, and transform them into higher emotions, like love, forgiveness, and gratitude. So, if you’re trying to deal with things that happened a long time ago and wonder why they’ve suddenly prodded you to consider them, the Shift could be the trigger.

Because of all the light and energy being sent to Earth, we may feel more tired and rundown than usual. Sometimes, we might feel under the weather and not know why because we’re not sick, although we sometimes have body aches, headaches, and exhaustion.

Children born from 2012 on will be more awakened than their parents in most cases, and things their parents do or believe may not resonate with them. They’ll come into the world with a closer connection to God than we did. They will learn faster and behave differently towards others in many ways than in generations passed. They’ll be better problem solvers, but their perspectives will be more globally rooted. They’ll embrace others’ differences, instead of condemning them.

What Can You Do Right Now?

The things that have helped me understand and deal better in these times of change include prayer and meditation, avoiding most of the negative news, focusing on the positive, and opening my mind to possibilities I’d never seriously considered before. I’ve studied about things like Reiki, psychic gifts and how to develop them, and most wondrous of all, I’ve connected with the Archangels who continue to encourage me, answer numerous questions, and send me energies of Light and Love, which will help me to help others. If you want in on this positive energy, just ask for it. They’re always listening, but they’re very respectful of your right to free choice, and they won’t give you these gifts unless you request them.

Other than that, buckle up! It’s going to be quite a ride!

Blessings, all. Jodie

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We are convinced that you are ready for more contact with extra-terrestrial beings. Now, when we say that, we want to be perfectly clear that we are talking about those of you who are awake. You are ready for more extra-terrestrial contact, even though the vast majority of humans are not. You are allowed to have experiences that other people are not for one reason or another. You don’t have to wait for everyone to be ready in order for you to go on a spaceship, to meet with e.t.s, and to travel around the galaxy with them. The galaxy is yours to explore, and your reality is yours to create and align with.

No one else is doing that for you. No one else gets to decide what you experience and what you do not experience. That is your domain. We want to encourage you to be the big dreamers that you really are. Be the creators that you were born to be, and be the ones who lead humanity into the age of full extra-terrestrial contact for the humans of Earth.

You get to be trailblazers in so many ways. You get to break free from enslavement. You get to break free from fear of your mortality, and you get to break free from the limitations that you took on as third-dimensional humans. Now is not the time to wait around for something to happen outside of you, not now when you’ve been given the ability to create outside of any sort of blueprint, any sort of contracts that you may have had at one time.

You are awake, and you are aware, and you are able to move past the limitations of the third and fourth dimensions, because humanity needs more of that fifth-dimensional energy to be present on Earth, and you are the ones to anchor it in. If not you, then who? That’s what we want to know.

Once you have awakened, you can never go back. You cannot regress. You cannot put the toothpaste back in the tube. You’ve got to be the ones who guide humanity’s expansion and ascension with your willingness to explore what would frighten most humans right out of their skin. This is how you bring about great changes on your world; it’s not by waiting for something to happen. It’s not about believing in someone else’s truth about reality and what’s going on behind the scenes.

Big changes start with you, the big souls in those somewhat dense and somewhat fragile human bodies, because you are ready to lead. You are ready to take humanity into the age of full extra-terrestrial contact, and we are here to help. And we are not alone. There are many other beings and collectives who want to guide you into this most fruitful era of human history.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

You Are the Force ∞The 9D Arcturian Council

Channeled by Daniel Scranton

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We are pleasantly surprised by humanity all the time. We feel you energetically going in a particular direction, and then you will take a sharp left turn. And most of the time, that sharp left turn will have been the result of just one of you accessing some part of yourself and integrating that part of you that you didn’t even know was there. You are putting yourselves together piece by piece, and every time one of you does, another one of you gets inspired, and so on and so on. You are not only healing, integrating, and becoming, but you are also inspiring, and that’s why you are so fun to watch.

Those unexpected moments are happening more and more frequently because you have been forced to be more introspective, to pay more attention to what’s going on inside of you. You have been guided by the universe to look within for healing, and enough of you are doing it to have that ripple effect, to be that domino that gets that chain reaction started.

We see you as ready to take humankind to the next level. We see you growing exponentially and taking more and more of your fellow humans with you, and we see that happening because you keep realizing that it is up to you, that nothing outside of you is coming to rescue humankind. The collective that you are a part of will always be a reflection of what is going on inside of you. It will always be a reflection of what you still need to look at, to make peace with, to embrace, and ultimately, to integrate.

As you continue to become your higher selves, piece by piece, you send out those templates, those instruction manuals, to all of your fellow humans so that it can be and will be easier on them to do what you have done. Paving the way to the fifth dimension is what you all intended for this remarkable lifetime there on Earth, and you’ve got the momentum now to carry the entirety of the human race, and there is no force in this universe that can stop you.

You are the force that is unstoppable, and you keep snowballing and gaining momentum every single day. Keep inspiring your fellow humans through your words, your actions, through the work you are willing to do on yourselves, and you will be living in that nice little slice of the fifth dimension much sooner than you expected.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We are a collective consciousness, but we were once considered to be individuals, just as you consider yourselves to be individuals. What that means is, we can have several different perspectives running within our collective at the same time, and we can do so without any discord, without any lowering of our overall vibration. In fact, we see a diversity of perspectives as a strength. Seeing things from many different angles at the same time allows you to choose, and that’s what you do there on Earth as individuals.

You choose to hold a perspective for a certain amount of time, because you want to explore the ins and outs of that perspective. If you can see someone else’s perspective as lending to the power and the strength of the human collective consciousness, even if it is the polar opposite of yours, then you can start operating as a unified collective now, instead of later. You don’t really want uniformity.

You don’t really want to all agree on everything, because then you would become stagnant in your growth, and that cannot happen. What must happen in order for you to grow spiritually is that you must find acceptance. Acceptance is the opposite of resistance, and acceptance allows for change to occur. It is the first step in allowing change to occur.

You and we are all Source Energy Beings exploring all of the different aspects of the oneness that is Source. And so, we must all allow all aspects of ourselves to be exactly what they are in order to choose. You get to choose what your perspective is, and you don’t have to see anyone else’s perspective as dangerous. You can just smile and nod and know that the person who is offering that perspective is exploring that particular reality, that particular way of being in the world.

One of the biggest problems that you have there on Earth right now is that you feel you must all agree on one static reality. You don’t have to do that. There are so many realities for you all to explore, and of course you will bump into someone who is exploring their reality, while you are exploring yours, and you will wonder if you are wrong. You will wonder if you are wrong to even be exploring a different reality than someone else or than many others who you once agreed with on everything.

Please do not worry what anyone else is thinking about, or how they choose to process reality or information. This is an area where you get to be very selfish, just so long as you are recognizing that there are other people out there, and those people are real and have real feelings. Don’t ever assume that someone else is just in your reality to play a role and be a soulless background actor.

Assume that everyone and everything is Source, because that’s how it is in every reality. That’s one of the truths that transcends your ability to create. There is nothing outside of Source, and that means you are Source. And that should be empowering enough for you to let everyone else create whatever reality they want to create and then live in it. Doing so will not only be liberating for you, but it will also help you to create your reality the way you want to experience it without any interference whatsoever.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Channeled by Daniel Scranton

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We are very engaged in the process of your evolution of consciousness. We absolutely are intertwined with humanity at this point, and we are very happy about that. We want you to know that we will always be with you, always by your side, always seeking to help you, and we are eager to share with you more about our spiritual evolution as we have been experiencing it.

As we have told you many times before, our ascension was much easier than yours, and we chose an incarnational cycle that was also much more joyous and filled with wonderful experience after wonderful experience. We did not choose the hard path, as you did. But what we did to bring ourselves into a higher consciousness, you can also do.

One of the ways we were able to achieve such monumental leaps forward was of course going within, focusing on our vibration, our chakras, and our hearts. It was easier for us to do these things because that’s what everyone was doing. On your world, most people are looking outside of themselves for validation, or for satisfaction, for fulfillment, for pleasure. We were taught at a very young age about how much ecstasy we could access by focusing inside of ourselves and breathing consciously.

We were taught that the inner world was more exciting and interesting, and that was why it was easier for us to ascend. We also didn’t have anything to push against. There were no villains in our experience. We never had to fight for the right to do anything, and all Arcturians were equal to one another. Therefore, even when we were existing as third dimensional beings and had egos, we were not in competition with one another. We didn’t compare ourselves to anyone else, and it was very easy to see how we were all connected.

If we could give you that gift of knowing that you were all connected, we would, and we will continue to attempt to convince you that there is so much more available to you when you go within than there is anything outside of you that compares. We want you to have an Arcturian spiritual awakening and an Arcturian ascension journey, because you have done enough of the hard work, the struggling, and the heavy lifting.

Now, we also consider it to be very interesting that most humans spent many lifetimes in our system. So you have also had the experience of being able to grow with ease, being able to evolve spiritually without having to try very hard. And we also will continue to seek to awaken those memories within you. We invite you to feel for the energy that we are projecting right now, no matter when you receive this message. We are offering you an attunement through this channeled transmission to get you to remember the truth of who you are as an Arcturian being, as a spiritual master, as one who can take the easiest path to your ascension.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We have been impressed once again by humanity, as you have demonstrated that you have more fortitude within you than anyone could’ve hoped for here in the higher realms. The fact that you are still there at this time is huge. You are holding the space for the entire collective, in spite of how hard it is for you to be there yourselves.

You are doing this while continuing to clear your own traumas and while dealing with your own ascension symptoms. We have the utmost respect for those of you who are awake and who are there because you want to help and because you want to have an experience of the biggest ride that you can have while in a physical body.

Now you are also entitled to the help you are receiving. We, and the other beings and collectives who are helping you, are doing so because you have earned our help. You have good karma, and you have endured so much of the lack, the negativity, the sickness, the loss, and all of the very challenging emotions there now, and the scales must be balanced in this universe of duality.

Some people wonder what the point of suffering is. Well, the more you suffer, the more ecstasy there is coming your way, because that ecstasy must be created in response to your suffering to keep a balance of energies in this beautiful universe of ours. That ecstasy is yours and yours for the taking. It is earmarked for you specifically, the one who created it, the one who suffered and endured as much as you have.

You are the ones we are talking to right now, because even if your experiences in this lifetime haven’t been that bad in comparison to others, you have experienced the worst of what you see on your world right now. Everything that’s outside of you is inside of you.

Now you get to benefit from all of those creations, but you need some help. You need some help in just believing that all you have summoned still exists. You need some help in opening up to receive it, and you need some blasts of high frequency energy to get you to be a match to it. And so, helpers like ourselves show up, and we will continue to show up.

We are not going anywhere. We are going to make sure that everyone receives the goodie bags that you have coming to you. And guess what? So are your higher selves and spirit guides. We are all working together to make life better for all of you, not just those of you who are awake.

But certainly, the awakened collective is leading the way. You are setting the example that you need to set and that is needed by the others who are not quite awake yet. But don’t worry. More mass awakenings are coming, and you will not feel as alone as you’ve been feeling for much longer.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We are listening to humanity, and we are very excited about what we are hearing from you. More and more humans are understanding that they are the ones who are responsible for their own ascension and that we and others like us are just helpers. We are facilitators and activators, but you are the ones who have to do all of the work. The work doesn’t have to be hard, but at times it can be painful. The times that you are in pain there on Earth should help you to appreciate the good times more.

That’s why you began a cycle of incarnations on Earth in the first place. You are there by choice, and we know that some humans don’t believe that. That is why we will keep saying it; you are there by choice. And you choose to be there because Earth allows you to have certain experiences that are unique to your planet and to the third and fourth dimensions. There is a feeling that you can have only when you experience pain and suffering, and that feeling is relief. The experience is a release and the feeling is a relief. And then from all of that, you are more likely to feel compassion for others because you know what it is like to feel pain and to suffer.

Compassion brings you together, and coming together is the final step on humanity’s journey to ascension. And now is the time to be focusing on how you can come together more, in spite of your differences. And if you are one of the ones who is asking us and others like us for opportunities to experience more unity, then you are one of the leaders that we are talking about. Humankind needs leaders who are about bringing people together, and every single one of you who is receiving this transmission is one of those people. You don’t need to have billions or even millions of people following you in order to be a leader. You are contributing to the collective consciousness no matter what you do or who knows who you are.

When you ask for our support in bringing humankind together, you get more than just our support. You get all the support of all the beings and all the collectives who seek to be a part of the unification of the human collective. Even those who just feel compassion for someone else who is suffering are doing their part. Of course, there are people who have never heard of us or do not believe in extra-terrestrials or higher dimensions, and they are still doing their part by feeling compassion for their fellow humans. When we see that, we know that you are getting closer and closer to being ready to ascend.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to connect with so many humans because you give us a feeling of being more grounded and more physical, just as we can give you the feeling of being in a higher dimension and being more spiritual. We are excited to see how you are each individually affected by the equinox energies of September 2022. These energies are already upon you, and they will peak on the time of the equinox, when it is exact. For many of you, that will be on the 22nd.

As you feel for these energies, we want you to notice what they inspire within you. They are meant to give you a greater sense of yourselves as being your souls who are connected to these physical bodies. In other words, it’s time for you to stop identifying so much with your physical form and to know yourselves more as your nonphysical selves, as your souls. The merging of the nonphysical and the physical is much of what this lifetime is about for all of you, as you are ascending.

Ascension means an expansion of consciousness, an awakening of the knowing of who you really are. And so, to live as the version of yourself that has that full knowing at all times that you are souls who are temporarily inhabiting these bodies is the goal of every single person on the planet right now. Most people do not know this, and they have other goals, other achievements they would like to complete in this lifetime, and that is fine because all of that gives a person an opportunity to reach deeper inside of themselves for something, something they did not know was there.

It is important for you all to feel these energies and to receive the assistance that they give to you, because it is time for this shifting to occur at all levels of your beingness. The body will be the last part of you to transform into a lighter version of itself, but you can transform right now, and you can know who you really are in this very moment that you decide to do so. This is a beautiful time for you all to be relaxing into this knowing, because when you take on that truth that you are souls first and foremost, you get to relax. You get to give up the struggle, the fight, the non-stop trying and taking of actions to try to change the world or change your world.

When you know who you really are and you merge more completely with your soul, you know everything can change in the blink of an eye because of you. You are there to demonstrate to yourselves that you are Source Energy Beings, and that means you are creators. You are the ones to transform the world from within by changing you. Then you can notice the changes out there, and you can experience a much different version of reality than you have ever experienced before.

This is a pivotal time in getting you all to realize that you have these powers, these abilities. And one of the beings that you have there to help you, always, is your sun, and the sun and its energies are really important aspects of this shift in consciousness for you. But you don’t have to wait for solar flares, or a solar flash, or a solar sneeze, or any other type of solar event, to benefit from what your sun is giving off right now, and the significance of this equinox cannot be overstated. So do soak in the energies of your sun, and allow the energies of the equinox to wash over you and to consistently remind you of who you really are.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

By author and channel, Jodie Helm. (Ignore the “by Pete” line above. All I did was post Jodie’s article to save her the trouble. – Pete)

I posted an article last night about the parent/child relationship with a channeled message from the Archangels. In the message, they offered guidance and perspective to both parents and adult children to help them understand each other better. The also made it a point to say that they were not addressing abusive families, and I received several comments and emails regarding this exception with some misunderstanding the purpose of the exclusion.

The Angels and I have been working together for years now, and I often understand what they are saying and meaning when others are unclear. So, I asked them for clarification about the exception of abusive families, and their response follows.

Question:

Can you please help me clarify your last message and offer some guidance for those who come from abusive families?

Answer:

This is a difficult issue to address, because those who have been abused often cannot consider forgiveness of their abusers, and that is understandable. The difficult part is for them to understand how we Archangels can still love those who have tormented them.

In our last message, we addressed the parent/child relationship, and we included some insight for both parents and their adult children. We also openly excluded families where members experienced abuse. The reason we made a point to exclude abusive families is not because they are not important or forgotten. We excluded them, because the guidance and insight we offered in that message did not pertain to such serious problems.

We tried to help each side of the parent/child bond view the other with more understanding and acceptance, and we pointed out some difficulties and common problems each side faces in hopes they could better see each other more clearly.

Abusive families would not benefit from the same advice. We understand that asking abused individuals to try to look at things from their abuser’s perspective is not helpful or even possible in most cases. We understand that sometimes, the abused victims cannot consider forgiving their abusers, and we say to you that it is alright to be unable to grant forgiveness.

This is shocking for many, so we would like to clarify. Forgiveness is important and necessary, and it will come eventually. However, depending on the situation and the people involved, it may not be possible to forgive abuse or violence during this lifetime, and that is fine. Sometimes, it is too much to ask that a traumatized person forgive those who caused them harm, which is understandable. We would much rather see the victim of abuse or violence heal themselves in any way they can than try to find forgiveness or mend an abusive relationship. It is not a requirement to forgive in this lifetime. Healing is more important, and although forgiveness often leads to healing, it is not a prerequisite.

There are many reasons people become abusive. We understand how this can happen, but you do not have to, especially if you were abused by such a person. Notice that we said, “understand” rather than “excuse.” We do not condone violence or abuse at any time. It is wrong to hurt another in any way, regardless of background or circumstances. However, understanding and loving all humans as we Angels do, we do not judge or condemn anyone for anything they do on Earth. This is acceptable and expected of us, but it is not of you. It is too much to ask of some.

While it is possible and hopeful for families who are estranged for reasons such as anger due to differences of choices and opinions to heal with time and understanding, we understand that reconciliation between family members from abusive families is not always possible, even when the abusers are sorry for their actions.

If someone who was abused does not wish to remain in an abusive relationship of any kind with the abuser, especially if it endangers them physically or emotionally, they should cut ties and do whatever else helps them heal from the abuse. This is understandable and acceptable. Forgiveness will come, whether during this lifetime or afterwards when you return to the soul realms and regain universal knowledge. While you are here on Earth, focus on healing.

Finally, we wish to tell everyone that you are unconditionally loved, whether within your family or not. Do not ever think that no one loves you, for we do. The Creator loves you, too. While that may not be as easy to see and feel as it is from other humans, it is nonetheless true. If you are part of an unloving family, know that this is a choice your soul made in order for you to learn something and grow spiritually. Look for the lessons to be learned, and know that you are treasured in the high realms.

We send all Love and Light

Final Thoughts

I hope that clarifies things for those who were confused by the previous message. If not, please let me know, and I’ll work with the Angels to find the answers you seek. All families have problems, but there’s a big difference between being mad at each other and being abused by a family member.

Most of us were taught that forgiveness is a virtue worth pursuing, and in many ways, I agree. I’ve struggled to forgive some people in the past, and when I’ve been able to forgive, I’ve found it very freeing. Whether or not forgiveness affects the person who hurt you isn’t important. It’s healing for you. However, I’ve never been a victim of severe abuse or violence, and I don’t blame anyone who cannot forgive people who have hurt them so severely. It’s comforting to me that the Archangels understand that sometimes insurmountable task, and they don’t expect us to do what we just can’t. I hope you find comfort in that, too.

Blessing, all.

Sunday was usually a family day when I was growing up. My mother made a big dinner, such as a pot roast or fried chicken, and we all sat down at the table together to eat. Do families still do that? If not, I’m sure they have modified things to fit their own family, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

The parent/child bond has to be the strongest human bond there is, don’t you think? My youngest is almost twenty-eight now, but my kids will always be my babies, even as I admire and accept that they are adults now. Raising our kids is the hardest, most rewarding, scariest, most loving time of our lives, and it’s not easy for anyone involved. I asked the Angels for some guidance in how to navigate not just raising our kids, but accepting them as our equals. Below is their response.

Question:

Parents and children have so many challenges. Some they face together, and some individually. Do you have any guidance for us on how to make our time together easier?

Answer:

This is a good, important topic to discuss, as it involves the majority of people, and you are right that it is challenging. Usually people think of how hard a job parenting is, but growing up has its own hurdles, and for people in the same family, living together, it is often difficult to find common ground. We do not wish to tell you how to parent, but we can offer some things to keep in mind over the years.

Most parents love their children and vice-versa. There is usually an increase in tension between the generations as the child begins growing into adulthood, which is common and understandable. While the child is dealing with hormonal overloads and trying to figure out who they want to be, the parents are trying to make their own adjustments, which usually includes balancing support and encouragement with guidance and protection. Neither role is easy or comfortable.

Most parents want their children to grow up to be responsible adults, good people, and self-sufficient, and they take their parental responsibilities very seriously. Most parents give their very best efforts to raising their children, although all parents make mistakes they regret later.

When children are young, the parents are usually the most important and impactful people in their lives. It rarely occurs to them that their parents are vulnerable in any way. Parents are all powerful and all knowing, and they see them as their own super heroes. When anyone is put on such a high pedestal, he or she inevitably has a long way to fall and usually does at some point. This often happens during the teens and twenties as the child goes from idolizing their parents and wanting to be like them to resenting them and not wanting to be like them at all. The parents often feel hurt and unappreciated, while their children feel the same invincibility they previously applied to their parents. This is a very temporary state in most cases, but it is often disturbing for all involved.

As the child grows into adulthood and starts out on their own, most begin to become more aware of the everyday challenges their parents have faced and overcome that, as children, they never noticed. The more responsible they become over their own lives, the more they begin to find a new respect for the strength their parents have shown and the sacrifices they made for their children. Any leftover resentment is usually cast aside.

This renewed appreciation for their parents is magnified if and when they begin starting families of their own and learn first hand how strong parental love can be and the awesome responsibility that comes with it.

As their children go through these phases, the parents are trying to make their own adjustments, trying to accept that, not only have their children grown up, but their role as parent has changed as well. It is often difficult for parents to accept that they are no longer in charge of or responsible for their children. This is often a bitter pill to swallow after devoting so many years to raising their children. Some feel a keen loss and experience a time of uncertainty, and wonder what to do with themselves.

Healthy people in healthy families usually adjust beautifully eventually, especially when the parent/child bond remains intact. Parents rediscover a sense of freedom to pursue their own interests and put their own needs above those of their children again. Grown children continue to find their own way, so they can lead their own children, and once again, they often envy their parents and look forward to a future when they can again live for themselves. And the cycle continues.

If the person or the family is not healthy, it is a very different story that can affect generations. We are not talking about abusive people or families, we are talking about angry people and families that have fixable issues and where love is present, along with the anger. It is to these family members we address next.

Humans are imperfect by nature. To expect perfection from someone is unfair and impossible to achieve. Children who harbor resentment for what they consider to be failings on their parents’ part should remember that no one is born an excellent parent, and that parenting does not come with an instructions manual.

Each child is different, and parents are not mind readers. Many parents find that what works for one child may not work for another, and that is often perceived as special treatment, favoritism, and unfair. On the other hand, parents that try to raise all children in the same way are often criticized by their children for not listening or fulfilling their unique needs. Parents often find themselves at a loss while raising their children, and that is normal. Children need to remember that all people, including their parents make mistakes, and they do the best they can.

Parents who still think they should be able to tell their grown children what to do and how to live their lives as adults need to realize that they are no longer in that role. They raised their children and now it is time for them to give their children the same respect they want from them in return. If their children’s choices differ from their own, they should accept this, knowing that their children are and should be living their own lives independently of their parents. This is reason to rejoice that their children are strong and have minds of their own. Parents do not need to agree with their choices, but they do need to respect them.

Once children become adults, they should be treated as such. Parents should realize that they are at the same level now. Parents should no longer be put on a pedestal, and their children should no longer be looked down to or be under their control. Offer guidance when asked, otherwise observe and support your children’s choices. Understand that neither of you are the center of each other’s worlds any longer, nor should you be. This is a good thing.

If the day should ever come that there is a role reversal, and the children become caretakers of their parents, do so with grace, love, and gratitude on all sides. Parents, accept help with gratitude, and children should offer help with patience and dignity. Respect should be practiced on all sides. Parents need to remember that, although they cared for their children for many years, their children do not owe them a debt. That was a choice they made that should not have strings attached.

Children should remember that, although their parents may need their help, they are still adults and deserve respect. If it becomes overwhelming, discuss the situation calmly and with love and find a solution together if possible. Whatever you do, do so with a loving heart. If it becomes overwhelming, that is alright, also. Not everyone makes a good caregiver, even to people they love. This is a gift only some possess, and if it is not your gift, there should be no shame or guilt. All parties need to be aware of this.

Treasure the time you have together. Make memories at every stage to savor after one of you transitions. Know that you will one day be reunited and that love never dies.

We send you Love and Light.

Final Thoughts

Changing roles as parents and children is difficult for everyone involved. Parents are losing control that they are used to having, and children are assuming more responsibility on top of everything that is already on their plate. It feels awkward for everyone at first, but with patience and open communication, things can work out in a way that everyone can handle.

We shouldn’t judge strangers, much less the people in our lives. My parents made mistakes, and so have I, as have my children. We’re all likely to continue making mistakes. There are some things I’d do differently, but I have the peace of mind of knowing I did my absolute best for my kids, and they know that, too. We’ve forgiven each other for any slights we carried, and I’m so very proud of the people they’ve turned out to be. I don’t take all the credit, but I do feel like I contributed to their success.

And when I say success, I’m including but not focusing on their careers. My kids have good hearts, and they’re good people who, like all of us, sometimes make mistakes but try their best to do the right thing and make good choices. That’s all we can ask of ourselves as well as each other.

Blessing to everyone.
