Regardless of who experiences change, for everyone, change is first and foremost emotional. It has a down side, which can include the awakening of feelings of suspicion, fear, frustrations, confusion, anxiety, and even irritability. However, there is an upside: it extends to you the promise of hopefulness, enthusiasm, optimism, wonder, and surprise. Focus on the upside! It’s telling you that you still have a future! Many blessings, Cherokee Billie

The answer is: Fear. Right now people are living in a state of fear because of the economy making a change downward. For decades this situation has been going on, but did not make news until it started hitting the average person’s pocketbook
During the past year I have had more calls about the economy than ever before. Yes, there are problems. But we cannot act in fear. Panic over financial, love or health situations can make you act irrationally and quickly.
The first fear started with the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001. People lived in fear that another attack was going to occur right away. Eleven years later we have not had another attack on United States soil and our fear level has gone down. The second was started with oil prices going up. The third was mortgage interest rates escalating to the point that people have lost their homes. Now we see banks closing and there is the belief that we may not have money for tomorrow. The job layoffs are daily and it will continue for some time. The economy is not going to recover quickly. This is where you must not let fear overwhelm you. You can survive on less, as consumers we’re not use to not having the latest clothes, electronics, cars, and homes. It’s time to learn how people have lived through tough economic times before. They did not purchase everything made desired. They learned to make do with what they had.
What makes this economic situation different than the crash of 1929 is the fact that people did not live on credit in 1929. Our economy today is based on credit. So this is really a credit crash. My father came through the depression and he always said, “If I can’t afford something I don’t need it.” He never owned a credit card and would always pay cash for what ever he needed. It’s so easy to spend money with a credit card or a debit card. If you start using cash more you will find that you don’t spend as much. This is one way to stop the panic. Think carefully about what you really need before you buy it. You would be amazed at what you can live without.
With the economic crisis Chicken Little running around screaming, “The Dow is falling, The Dow is falling.” Fear is causing people to panic and the media feeds the panic. Fear keeps people in line and following the actions of those in charge. We must not give in to the fear. Remember that this too shall pass. Realize that you have a hand in controlling your destiny and that you will always have enough to survive.
At this time do not make any quick decisions. If you want to do things well – take your time go slowly. Now is the time to get quiet within you by meditation or prayer and seek guidance from the Great Spirit. The more quiet you become the clearer you can see the big picture. Do not be controlled by the media, economy, government, or politicians.
Think carefully before you purchase anything even down to your groceries. Use wisdom and do not be swayed by the fear of the others. You will make it through this difficult time and surprisingly have learned more than if the economy would have remained stable. In the end you will come out of this a better person.
If we want to be of maximum use to the Creator, we must ready ourselves to do so. If we are to become a channel for His purposes, we must prepare ourselves to do so. If we have resentment, fear, selfishness, or anger, we are not hollow bones. We must be rid of these things. We must change ourselves. We must ask for forgiveness for ourselves and forgive our brothers and sisters. We must keep our insides clean. We cannot use our power in a good way when we have blockages such as hate, judgment, and envy. When we are free of these things the Higher Powers can use us beyond our wildest imagination. Then we can really help ourselves and help our people. Only when we are hollow bones can we have an effect on the world…
Oh Great Spirit, remove from me the things that block my usefulness to You. Remove from my day all thinking that is out of harmony with Your ways. Grant me Your peace and allow me to function as a hollow bone…
There’s only one you in the world today;
So nobody else, you see,
Can do your work in as fine a way:
You’re the only you there’ll be
So face the world, and all life is yours
To conquer and love and live:
And you’ll find the happiness that endures
In just the measure you give;
There’s nothing too good for you to possess,
Nor heights where you cannot go:
Your power is more than belief or guess
It is something you have to know.
There is nothing to fear, you can and you will.
For you are the invincible you.
Set your foot on the highest hill
There’s nothing you cannot do.
One of the greatest of healing factors is faith, to know that The Creator loves you and cares for you and is going to take care of you no matter what happens. Faith eliminates one of the greatest causes of disease and ill health, and that’s fear and tension.
Fear, tension, hatred: All breed the various psychological and nervous diseases as well as the natural physiological diseases like heart trouble and arthritis and stomach ulcers, all of which can be caused by worry and fear.
So the elimination of fear by faith gives peace of mind and rest to your stomach and vital organs, including rest to your heart and the actual elimination of poisons from the blood which causes illness. In other words, your state of mind can actually poison your body. This science knows and has proven.
Because peaceful meditation and mental concentration on positive attitudes and good thoughts, etc., do definitely have a good effect on both mind and body through the right spiritual attitude.
The two greatest sources of fear and worry are the past and the future––remorse over the past, or fear over the future!
The one who trusts really rests in The Creator. Perfect love casts out all fear-for fear has torment. The Creator has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and of a sound mind! Which shows the definite relationship of mental disease to fear!
So your physical state of health is definitely dependent largely on your mental state of health, and your mental health is very largely dependent on your spiritual condition, because both love and faith cast out all fear.––Faith and trust in The Creator gives you a feeling of rest of body, peace of mind, contentment of heart and spiritual well-being, which all tend to greatly improve your whole state of well-being.
Most people do not understand scientific realities but still have to accept them because they work and they can feel the effects of these forces as demonstrated in our daily lives.
We use the power of electricity in our everyday lives, even though no one really understands it––not even the scientists! They only know its laws, its actions, and its effects and have learned how to channel and conduct it to serve many useful purposes upon which we are dependent.
Even so, we must accept the very existence of The Creator, even though we don’t know where He came from or who made Him, if anyone, or how He got here or where He came from. We simply know He does exist and The Creator is here, ever-present, all-knowing and all-powerful.
We must accept The Creators power for our own benefit, usefulness, life, love, health and happiness in everyday living just as you use electricity, even though you don’t understand it fully or know where it came from or how it got here, and you may not even understand how it works. All you know is, it works!––You flip the switch and make the connection and it works. You make contact with the power of electricity and it does the work for you.
Just so, you must learn to make personal contact with the power of The Creator and learn to let The Creator do the work of bringing you joy, health and happiness in everyday living and of being useful in your life and giving you faith and rest and comfort and peace instead of fear and restlessness and worry.
You must learn how to contact The Creators power through prayer, meditation, listening, and a spiritual seeking of contact with His Spirit.
Let The Creators light and power into the room of your life to give you light and power and joy in living by doing many things for you which you cannot do for yourself, just as electricity does through the simple flip of a switch or the turning of a dial.
We must avail ourselves of The Creator just as we do the electricity which gives us light, power, fuel, fire, heat, communication, transportation and all these marvels of modern Man which we use in our daily living, even though most of us haven’t the least idea of where it comes from or how it got here or who made it, and most of us still don’t even understand how it works or the laws which govern it, and certainly none of us has ever seen it, only its effects.
All we have to know is to have faith in the power so that we’re willing to make the connection that lets it into our daily lives by receiving it, by taking that definite step of faith in reaching out our hand of faith and turning the switch of decision which makes the contact and starts the flow of that power into our lives to light, guide, warm, feed, provide, protect, work for us and give us pleasure!
All you have to know is it’s here and that it’s obvious it’s here because it works, and you can prove that it works by the simple little decision of switching on to it and trying it to see that it works! You don’t have to take my word for it or anybody else’s. Try it! You’ll like it! Just flip the switch of decision by your own human will and let the light in and see how quickly the darkness flees!
Begin to enjoy yourself and a life filled with the power of The Creator at every turning of the dials and connections of the switches of prayer and contact with the Source!
Forget trying to explain it! Quit trying to understand it! Stop trying to diagnose it and take it all apart and analyze it! You’re just making hard work out of all the fun! Just turn it on and enjoy it! Flip out and have a ball with The Creator! He’s your electricity! He’s what gives you such a charge!
As long as it works that’s all that matters! Don’t try to figure The Creator out.––Just let The Creator in! The Creator works!––And that’s all you need to know!

Archangel Jophiel is the Angel of Wisdom and Illumination whose name means Beauty of God. He is also the Patron Archangel of Education. This Great Archangel is not spoken about as perhaps some of the other more well know Archangels, but nonetheless he is an important messenger of the Divine. Archangel Jophiel’s mission in part, is to help focus you away from the personality, ego or fear and move ever closer to the Christ Consciousness. Jophiel’s twin flame is Christine and as her name suggests, she is all one with the Consciousness of Christ. Christine acts as a counterpart to Jophiel; she represents steadfast constancy and is the feminine aspect of Wisdom.
Jophiel and Christine bring enlightenment, wisdom, inspiration, clear seeing and understanding. He appears dressed in a yellow cloak, carrying a bright blazing sword. They reside on the Second Ray with the color being Yellow, also called the Love-Wisdom Ray. The energy of this ray is most powerfully beamed down to earth on a Sunday.
Jophiel’s mission is that of the Archangel of teachers and students, helping with teaching and education, particularly working with people of artistic natures alike. They bring awareness to humankind and offer understanding of the teachings from the higher realms, illuminating the pathway for all of us. If we loose our way, these two beautiful Angels can rescue people from spiritual blindness and ignorance, something which may hinder them from fulfilling their higher purpose.
Archangel Jophiel can release powerful energies of light to us, swirling around the head and brain area, which aids in removing any negativity and drawing down the perfect blueprint of each individual. By invoking this beautiful Archangel, you will begin to open more to wisdom, gain clarity, inspiration and he will help you to absorb and retain information during study or exam times.
When you need information, understanding or spiritual wisdom, invoke Archangel Jophiel and he will pour the wisdom upon you, like a fountain of golden light. If you get stuck and are unsure as to which path you should take, get quiet, and invoke Jophiel to assist you with your decision. Their help can be invaluable when breaking free from addictions of any sorts also.
Invoking Archangel Jophiel
We have free will so no Angel can interfere in our lives unless we give permission to do so. So we must Ask.
Here are some examples; of course you may change them to suit your personal circumstances:
I now invoke Archangel Jophiel and Archeia….
Make me aware of my Divine plan,
Give me guidance and help
Blaze the flame of Illumination through me
Please dissolve the lower energies from my being
Give me understanding, so I may resolve conflicts in my life
Help me to learn and absorb information for school/work
Help me to re-connect to my higher self/Divine Source
“I now invoke Archangel Jophiel to stand at my side, to pour golden light of illumination into my crown and through my body. I ask for wisdom and truth to help me learn and grow so I may know my higher self” Then get quiet and let Jophiel do the rest.
Visualize your head area surrounded by the glowing gold light and see the angels of illumination flooding your soul, body and mind with this powerful energy.
Archangel Jophiel and Archeia Christine’s spiritual retreat is said to be located in the higher realms over the physical location south of the Great Wall of China, near Lanchow in North Central China.
Archangel Jophiel and the Chakras
Archangel Jophiel and Christine are associated with the Crown Chakra at the top of the head, the communication centre with our spiritual nature, oneness with the Divine. They can purify this chakra by sending the Yellow Ray of wisdom and enlightenment to aid in mastering the qualities of the Yellow Ray. Jophiel’s ruling planet is Mercury and his element is Air. Scents associated with him are Orange, Myrrh, lemongrass and lavender.
