Dear Bonnie: As a child, around the age of 3, I saw angels for the first time that I can remember. I remember angels visiting me several times in the house my family lived in until I was about 4. My mom also remembers waking me up from a nap, and when I awoke, I asked her, “Why, did you wake me? I was playing with the angels.” They always made me feel safe and protected; they had such an aura around them, transparent like fog but not cloudy. They appeared to be male, and they wore white. They were also so bright but, oddly, not blinding.

I have had other encounters, but none since I was much younger. I am writing to you and giving you this history because I feel like I have lost my sensitivity to see and feel things I was able to see as a child. Is there anything I can do to tap back into my abilities? — Sarah

Dear Sarah: As children, we can see and hear the spiritual world easier and without effort. We have only been on the Earth plane for a short time and truly remember heaven much more vividly. As we become older, that sensitivity can seem to go away because we must be on our Earth journey.

We all have a purpose for our lifetime, with many lessons to learn. And if we remembered everything about the journey that we came here to experience, then that might get in the way of living and learning these lessons with all the trials and tribulations that come with our lives.

You have not lost your sensitivity; life starts to unfold, and our journey begins. We start school to learn about science and math, which uses the other half of our brains, and the whimsical part of us becomes more scientific than magical.

Image if we were in a classroom, studying the alphabet or our math problems, and we kept seeing our angels all around us. That might not let us concentrate on the subjects we need to comprehend here in the physical world.

If you want to connect to the whimsical, creative side of yourself, try daydreaming when you get a chance. That’s right, let your mind wander with no to-do list. Just for fun, sit in a comfortable chair and just let your mind take you to a carefree place where anything is possible. Think of how the great movies were made, like “Peter Pan.” It all started with someone having whimsical thoughts.

Many great writers and artists will tell you that when they were not thinking, great inspiration came into their minds, and they wrote it down. We all are connected to source energy and are being inspired by guides, masters and loved ones when we sleep and in our thoughts. The best way to connect then is to remember not to control your every thought. Just letting go and letting our minds wander can be so inspiring.

Meditation is also a great way to clear your mind of earthly matters. Just relaxing or listening to relaxing music can be beneficial in so many ways. If you choose to try meditation, set an intention: Ask the angels or your guides to come close and give you a sign or some advice that might be helpful to you.

Remember, don’t try to run the show — just let things happen.

We are never alone on our journey and are always surrounded by so much love. We just need to take the time to enjoy the journey. Dream, meditate, let joy come into your world, and the journey will not seem so tough, and your ability to see, hear and feel the spiritual world will not seem so far away.
