My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Always when you want to create something new you will need to let go of something old. If you want beliefs that work better for you, you have to work diligently to release old ones that don't. If you want a new house, you must release the old. If you want new clothes, you must clear your closet, and if you want a new relationship you must give up hanging on to all that has gone before.
In truth, your past exists only in your mind, because in truth it is gone. It has washed away like water in a stream and you only carry with you what you remember and what you judge. As soon as you can love the past for what it brought you and taught you, then dear ones, it is over. The energy is released and allowed to flow from you, into the heavens where we, the angels, will help turn it into something so much better. Very much like donating fertilizer, when you give us your past pains, sadnesses, fears, unmet hopes and dreams, and ask that we transform them to love, we will. Like cleaning out your closets, dear ones, regularly giving us your heavy energy will allow you to breathe, and to make room for the new.
Place your hands just in front of your navel as if you are ready to catch something that will be released. Take a breath. Feel any area of your body, mind, or soul that feels heavy. Imagine as you breathe in deeply, that you are gathering this energy into your stomach. Then, as you breath outward imagine you release this dense energy in the form of a ball that gathers up into your hands. It may look dark, cloudy, or simply dense, if you are visual. It may feel prickly, heavy, or just unusual if you feel, or you may just imagine it. Keep breathing in this fashion, gathering heavy energy into the stomach with a slow breath in, then expelling it outward into this ball of energy in your hands. When you feel the ball has become quite heavy, and you are feeling much lighter, hand it upwards to the heavens, and we will take it from you and transmute it to love to be recycled into the universe.
Do this frequently dear ones, perhaps after work each day, or at least once a week. You clean your homes, wash your cars...why not clear yourself on a regular basis so your light can shine more brightly, your body can feel much better, and your mind can be at peace.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message From Ann
I always spend my week between Christmas and New Year's going through the house, cleaning & organizing closets, drawers, files... everything possible. It is like doing a review of my year, taking inventory of who I've become, and dreaming about who I want to be.
Sometimes its hard to let go of our stuff - both material and otherwise. I'll never forget a few decades ago, the first time I did "big closet clean out" that I had a terrible time letting go of a dress I wore on my first date in college! It was hideously out of style, and didn't even fit, but I was still hanging on to it for sentimental reasons. The angels finally gave me a little trick - hold it up to my stomach and my heart, breathe in all the good energy and good memories, then pass it on. It worked! i was finally able to donate it. I'm sure someone wore it as a Halloween costume and got quite a few laughs!
And then there was my favorite pair of jeans that once fit like a glove, but started falling off me once I stopped eating flour and a lot of sugar. I sat there holding them, wishing with all my heart I could figure out how to tailor them, and knowing I needed to just get rid of them. Once again, the angels got in my head, "Are you afraid of lack Ann? Are you afraid that God can't find you a new pair that fits?" They were right. I was holding on for fear I wouldn't find something better.
We do this in many ways. We hold onto, not only things, but beliefs, situations, etc., that aren't really making our soul sing, for fear we will never find something better. The angels have taught me over the years, to let go in all ways. When something stops making my soul sing, I find a way to release it or change it.
This year's closet clean outs were not difficult at all... I didn't ask, "Does it fit? Will I use it? What if I can't find something better?" My only question was, "Does it make my soul sing now?" and if not, I donated it. I got rid of a lot and it felt great. I'm still cleaning out in fact. It feels amazing. I also took inventory of my life. I sat and thought about what was working, what isn't, and I'm starting to make changes, letting go of habits and situations that don't make my soul sing. I'm doing the clearing exercise after work and trying to get more sleep! Little by little I'm putting more "me" in my life so I have more to give.
It isn't always easy letting go, but usually the only reason we hang onto the past - be it material, emotional, or otherwise, is because we forget we have the capacity to create better... in all those areas. So maybe this week, ask yourself, "What am I hanging onto, externally or internally, that I really want to release? What do I want to create instead?" Then soak up the love and lessons from the past and do your best to let it go by focusing forward... It feels amazing!
Have a blessed week. I love you all!
