My dear friends, we love you so very much.
Be gentle with yourselves this week. Allow yourself to surrender to all that comes up within you. Try your best to accept everything that you feel. No matter what arises in your hearts, tell yourself, “It is OK. I am allowed to feel everything. When you feel something you would normally judge - anger, sadness, jealousy - ask yourself one simple question, “What do I need now?” because all so-called negative emotions are simply speaking to you. They are your soul whispering to you, saying, “Hello, I have something important to say. You have been ignoring me.” Listen, dear ones, to the messages beneath the surface.
When you accept your own feelings you can realize that others are simply learning and growing too. Anger when projected at you, for example, has nothing to do with you. You may have triggered someone else’s anger, but in truth it is theirs, just as your upsets are yours. Each one on the planet now is being asked to own all that arises within them as having value - for themselves. Each one is being asked to dig a little deeper and look at the roots of their own feelings.
You have done nothing wrong, dear friends! Eternally you are the light and love of God having a human experience. Even in your most difficult moods and life circumstance you are nothing less. Your so-called negative emotions are here to draw attention to the illusions that have held you bound, and the conditioning and beliefs that do not serve your soul’s greatest truth. Welcome them when they arise and bring them into the light of your love. If you push them away, they will return until you find the gifts they are trying to offer you, but if you embrace them, you will not only free yourself of old illusions, but you will also allow the more painful emotions to give birth to new joy.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message From Ann
Earlier this year I had a feeling I’ve never felt before. It lasted for only a few days but it was the most puzzling sensation, because I didn’t even know what it was! I saw someone whom I’ll never even meet, who was graceful, beautiful, and very feminine, and instead of being overjoyed as usual, I started feeling cranky and having thoughts that weren’t so sweet. I finally asked the angels, “What on earth is going on with me.” "You’re jealous,” they answered honestly. Oh my God! I was appalled. Jealousy?
I’ve accepted my anger, my sadness, my despair at times, my anxiousness when it used to get me, but jealousy? I had always prided myself on never being a jealous person! I almost always love myself, my life, and my choices. I am almost always happy for other’s success. However, since the feeling was there, I knew it had something to teach me.
I did what the angels have always told me to do. I sat down, went within myself, and said, “OK jealousy, what are you trying to tell me? I’m listening.” The answers came quickly. “I want to be more feminine. I want to be pampered. I like being strong, but every now and then I want to be softer.”
“Well that was easy,” I thought to myself. It was as simple as owning the fact that I saw someone else embracing an energy that I had neglected to acknowledge within myself. It was true! I was missing the softer side of my being. I’ve been chopping up trees, lifting heavy stuff, climbing ladders, and crawling around my attic in my spare time. After work I’ve been at the computer working on my website. I had simply forgotten to take care of the feminine side of my being. Simple, but when we neglect something within ourselves it will reveal itself one way or another. If we ignore an aspect of our being, the truth may reveal itself in a so-called negative emotion to get our attention.
I was much gentler with myself the following week. I gave myself the kindness I had wished for. I pampered myself a little more and wore clothes that made me feel more feminine. While this might seem superficial, the angels remind me that being human is part of the experience here on earth and one I shouldn’t negate! A few days ago I stood next to a beautiful, feminine, pampered woman in line at the grocery store and we had a lovely conversation. Having taken care of my own needs, it was once again easy to celebrate the good fortune of others.
So if you feel something less than loving, first of all don’t beat yourself up! We’re already spiritual. We don’t have to try to be that. We’re already good inside. We don’t have to prove anything to God. We’re already light, even when we feel dark. Instead, just go within and ask the feeling what its trying to tell you. Embrace it. Own it! Its yours and its a gift. Although it might be triggered by someone else, it comes from your soul. Celebrate. You are being given a key that unlocks the locked doorways of the soul, and releases your light into an even greater awareness, expression, and experience of life.
Embrace everything that comes up within you. When a seed sprouts, the first thing you see is the dirt being pushed up to the surface, which inevitably makes way for new growth and new life.
