My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Celebrate amidst the chaos on earth, amidst the darkness, pain and suffering, because this type of turmoil results from the light attempting to rise to the surface of human hearts. Every perspective wants to be acknowledged now. Everyone wants to be seen as having validity to their being. And everyone wants to be understood as a creation worth of love.
Love, dear ones is not always a 'warm fuzzy feeling.' Real love is an acknowledgment of the truth - that there is one Creator and one light that animates all beings... whether they realize it or not. Love says, "I see beyond your behaviors, your thoughts, your appearance.. deep into the essence of your being. I can love that light. I can love that spark of Divinity. I can love who you really are... whether or not you are even aware of that truth inside of yourself."
In a very practical way, Love can look at even those who hurt your feelings, who treat you unkindly, who lie, cheat, and steal, and say, "I know who you really are! I choose to focus on the spark of Divinity within you, no matter how small or how dim. I will not dignify your dark behaviors, your ill thoughts, you unkind wishes. I will engage with you in a way that is healthy for me, for I respect my own light whether you respect yours or not. I will love the truth of your being, but I will not dignify your darkness." And then dear ones you send them on their way with wishes that someday they too will see their light.
You do not have to dance with souls who do not embody kindness. You do not have to allow abusive behaviors in your life. And as you become firmly rooted and comfortable in the reality that it is healthy and wise to honor the light within yourself, you will notice that it is easier to love even your so-called "enemies." In truth, no soul is your enemy. All souls are your family. Just as in your human families we encourage you to honor the light within all, but as well to create healthy, loving boundaries that honor your own.
The world is indeed in a bit of chaos right now, but you need not dance in the darkness. You can choose with your free will to focus on all that is good, beautiful, and true. You can imagine those who have left the planet, even in the most unthinkably hard ways, happy in heaven, being received with love and celebration. You can imagine beautiful nature springing up and growing over war torn areas, or even more beautiful cities being built, because in time this is what will occur. Darkness, by its very nature, is temporary. Love is eternal.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann
I felt such a powerful and loving presence as I typed in that last message. I know Archangel Michael had a lot to do with it. This is one lesson I have been embracing even more deeply as of late - to love even those who hate and seek to harm me.
As many of you have read, I've been dealing with one big nasty energy that seems to have been out to get me. I had a long chat w/the angels and they explained that there are vibrations who seek to expose our fear so they can live off it. Its not much different really from dealing with sociopaths on earth - deeply wounded people who love you if you worship them, but attack you if you don't, and then feel good about themselves and powerful after having knocked you down. It is a sad reality and I pray for all souls who exist in these wounded and uncomfortable realities.
Nonetheless, when a vibration of this nature started attacking me, it wasn't the easiest thing to love it and acknowledge its right to be! I've dealt with angry humans. I've dealt with individuals in spirit who were so lost we'd call them "demons." In fact I've sent more than a few into the light of transformation and now am friends with their souls. But I've never dealt with an entire vibration that loved to poke and prod me to the point of bringing up every little past life fear I've ever had! It even attempting to possess me last month and when that didn't work in the waking state, it tried in my dreams.
This never happened when I was simply talking to angels. But now that I've started spending more time in the Oneness - that energy of God's all-that-is, the angels said, with a bit of humor... "Ann Oneness means Oneness... all of it! You can't pick and choose which vibrations you run into, but you CAN pick and choose which ones you will engage with." They equated it to living in a big city. If you stay securely locked up in your own apartment you will be "safe" for the most part, but if you walk down the street you run into all sorts of characters... and it is up to you to decide who and what energies you will dance with.
So I've been working very diligently to stay in the light. When I feel something icky around me I simply say, "You have a right to be, but not with me." I have been working very hard to face any and all fears that have come up, to love myself through them, and let them go. I've worked more closely with the angels in my own life than ever before to understand how to manage my own energy. Great good has come of this - great strength in my ability to choose the light over the darkness. It hasn't been an easy or a fun lesson, but the angels are always there to help, and I have a solid faith in the truth of God's love.
No matter what comes at us in life, the angels remind us, God is still God. Neither the unkind humans, nor the unkind energies have any power over us other than what we give them with our fear.
So as the world engages in its wars, and as some beings engage in their attacks upon our spirit in the human world - be it an angry ex, an upset coworker, or an energy that simply doesn't like the light - remember, God is still God! Love is the highest power in the universe. Practically speaking, we can choose to focus on the light within all. Imagine even the nastiest beings surrounded with light, and pray for their upliftment. Create healthy boundaries. Do not tolerate unkindnesses in your own life. Do not dignify the darkness with your thoughts even any more than you have to. There is always goodness. There is always beauty. There is always something wonderful happening and amazingly inspiring people on earth.
When you're down or tired, seek out that which inspires you. I turn to happy videos, inspiring books, and my own work which I am passionate about. And even after all these tough lessons, I give thanks to God because something REALLY good is going on if I'm learning to stand even more strongly in the light.
My "Ann & the Angels" show airs this Wednesday. It is the culmination of ten years of intention to reach people with my class material Online. It was born of a pure desire to share love and inspiration every week. I'm excited. I haven't seen any of the shows yet, but I know the material is good...whether or not my hair is :)!! And I am very excited about connecting with all of you. Please feel free to pass on the info, if you are so inclined, to anyone who might benefit from it.
This week, focus on the light and the good in the world, no matter what else is going on. It takes courage and strength not to get sucked into the world's pain but we serve far more beautifully when we do not.
Love you all,
