Look out for the heavenly hosts at other events and come and give us a greeting of our own. We give quotes of inspiration to keep up the spirits of activists in the struggle. SPEAK angels are also available to visit other parties and conscious events. Send us an e-mail if you would like the angels to come to your event or if you would like the dancing angels to give you a visitation.

Angel of Hope: There is always hope... Hope, not a fluffy, airy, ‘I wish’, but a deep belief that things can, do and will get better. Think about a tree. It begins as a tiny, insignificant seed, planted unseen in the earth. Gradually it grows, imperceptibly, unnoticed day by day. To those who see it every day, it probably never seems to change. But if they stopped to think, they may remember when that tree was just a tiny sapling, or even a germinating seed. And if they cast their imagination forward, they would see that tree’s potential, fully mature, enormous, and full of birds and fruit. I believe hope is like this. As activists we can become so cynical or disillusioned by the world, and the way things never seem to change. Injustice, war and devastation seem impossible to overcome. We can even find ourselves motivated to campaign against these things out of anger, or guilt about our own privilege. And then we see that nothing seems to change, and we become frustrated, burnt out, and give in. But if we stop to look back where we’ve come from, we see the victories we have won in the past. We see how things have improved, how trade has become fairer, awareness has been raised, war zones have healed. And we look forward to a greater Hope, a day when all relationships will be fully restored... This is the hope I want to inspire in you, that keeps you strong in the fight for justice and reawakens your passion! There is always hope!
Angel of Ashes to Beauty: Life doesn't always go according to plan. We've all had times when we've felt alone, scared and unable to see a way out of our dark, messy situations. This Angel wants to sit alongside people who are hurting. To listen to them and to cry with them, to love them and to gently point towards a God of restoration. A God who promises to turn mourning into dancing, to breathe life into the dead, burnt out destruction of our "ashes". A God who can take the broken, hopeless, crumbling mess we find ourselves in, and turn it into something beautiful.
Angel of the Emerging Butterfly: A near complete butterfly clings to its chrysalis, striving to strengthen its wings so it can finally fly and fully reveal its beauty. Before this, the butterfly looked utterly different; unremarkable, lifeless. We long to see this kind of dramatic change in ourselves, other individuals, communities and situations presently shrouded in sorrow and difficulty. Encouraged by the butterfly, we know such change is possible, but its journey illustrates the struggle required. In the midst of my own journey I want to be real. I want to remind and be reminded of how different things could be. I want to stir faith in the One who transforms.
Angel of the Deep: I want to help us all to set sail on an adventurous voyage, to sound out the depth of the spirit in the place where we are. And where deep calls to deep, find out who we are, and what's really going on in spirit beneath all the events and upheavals of life. And deepest of all, we find that all of us are one with each-other and everything that lives, in the one spirit of infinite creation and love. So let's help one another to break the chains that anchor us to things that hold our voices back from speaking love and truth, and anchor deeply in the spirit of love and creation that sets us free to steer our course and build a beautiful, love-filled world.
Pacifist warrior Angel: Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek but a means by which we arrive at that goal,- Martin Luther King People fear that to be a pacifist activist you may be passive. Pacifist warrior is a conscious struggler who shows that to be pacifist is also to be deeply active on a spiritual level. We all need to struggle internally with own ego to be truly centred and peaceful, the shalom in the contemplative eye of the storm of the struggle we find ourselves in. Pacifist warrior has been expanding on her lyricism- her pacifist ammunition:’ To the media portrayal the pacifist warriors stand in sharp contrast and our arms are full of flowers to launch our pacifist attack’. Pacifist warrior knows that it’s the conviction of spirit which will get the unintentionally, unjust abusers, not all the love flowers, and glitter bombs she is throwing. Pacifist warrior prays in love not anger for the TNCS corporate executives and bankers forgiveness, because its really obvious that most them don’t know what they are doing to the world and are living in blissful ignorance, they are hurt and confused and need a hug too. Hug a Banker- Pacifist warrior wants to join together with other fluffy hug crews and give visitations to as many bankers and corporate execs as possible and give them all a hug. Embrace the humanity and love in those mistakenly stuck in system and draw out the transformation within them, rather than pelting them with sticks and stones. Spirit forgive them, they don’t always know what they are doing Do all politicians need to admit that we have built a world too complex to map? http://pacifistwarrior.blogspot.com/ Pacifist warrior struggles to find peace, and whilst the struggle is not to struggle, she longs to encourage people peaceful, contemplation, love and meditation as well as to discover more of it herself. Heavenly hosts, peace visitations of contemplatives and activists.
