Hi Dear Friends!
Today the angels talk about keeping our spiritual circulation in flow during this busy season...
Love you all!
Message from the Angels
My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Before every exhale, you must inhale. Before every inhale there is an exhale. When you give you receive. When you receive you give. When you spend it is because you have saved or you will save to pay for your purchase.
In all things within the vast and magnificent Presence of the Divine, there must be circulation. Energy must flow to you, through you, and from you in order for you – and the universe – to be healthy.
When energy is stuck you feel fatigued or unpleasant. When spiritual energy is flowing you feel boundless physical and joy. You have access to an unending and constant source of energy at all times. You need not feel tired. You need not feel pain. However, so many of you have simply not been taught how to keep your energy in flow.
There is a human tendency to stuff your feelings for example. Your body tries to hold the energy, like a battery, as best it can. However it gets "overcharged" with stuffed emotions, and begins to attract more of that energy from the outside world. Pretty soon, like a person with "static cling," you have all sorts of energies stuck to you. As soon as you find a healthy outlet for those feelings, the energy is in motion once again and anything that was "clinging" to you is easily washed away in the flow.
There is also a belief that "it is better to give than receive." In truth you cannot separate the two. When you give, you receive joy, satisfaction, pleasure in seeing the receiver receive. When you receive, if done graciously, you gift the giver with your own joy and appreciation. If you give but refuse to receive, you can easily become bitter, broke, and exhausted. If you receive but refuse to give of your love you will be very lonely indeed for you will never feel the love of God emanating from within you.
Giving and receiving does not have to be "even" in the material sense. It simply has to feel good in the energetic sense. You will know when you are out of flow by your fatigue, pain, or upset. You will know when you are in flow again by your feelings of relief, contentment, and joy. Even your body will relax when you feel the flow of grace running through its channels unobstructed once again. Your heart will be joyous!
So, dear ones, in this season of giving, by all means, share your love. But don't forget to receive as well. Sit. Breathe. Receive our love and the love of God. Receive your gifts graciously. Give of your gratitude and appreciation.
Above all give the gift of your Presence. Your true, honest, and authentic self given to the world without shame or guilt – in any given moment – is the greatest gift you can give. A rose is made to bloom and yet the thorns are a gift of its Presence as well. All of you is a gift dear ones. Give yourselves to the world honestly, and in return you will have no obstructions to receiving our love.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann...
I do a lot of deep breathing. I catch myself all the time rushing around, holding my breath and I make myself stop, breathe deeply, and exhale. It reminds me to be present and enjoy the moment. It reminds me that "now" is where and when I am alive. When I forget this simple practice and allow my "spiritual circulation" to get off balance, my body quickly reminds me.
For the last several week I've had a nerve in my neck that easily pinches. means I wake up with numb hands and arms if I roll the wrong way in my sleep or if I move my head the wrong way when I'm awake. I know how to correct it. However, I simply haven't take the time. I've been going strong without much down time since mid-September. While I love my fall hikes, this imbalance in my life was reflected in an imbalance in my body.
Thankfully over the Thanksgiving holiday I had time to "refill" the proverbial well. After the wonderful meal and time with friends, I spent a few days in blissful solitude. I sat and read all the magazine articles I'd set aside to read. I filed recipes and noted the healthy ones I wanted to try. I watched Hallmark Christmas movies, and sipped hot cider under my cozy blankets.
Best of all, I sat in silence with God and felt the energy starting to work through the tight spots in my body. I gazed for myself several times, did some easy exercises and of course, both my spiritual and physical circulation have returned. I'm excited about the holidays now and ready to give once again!
It is easy to get a little off balance this time of year in spite of all the joyful activities... or maybe because of them. In any case, here are some pointers to help your spiritual circulation flow smoothly.
1. Stay Present with Your Own Feelings
Stop every now and then. Breathe deeply and exhale. Breathe into the tight spots. Feel all your feelings. If you have stuffed emotions, this deep breathing will help release them from your body and soul, increasing both your physical and emotional circulation.
Pay attention to what your body is telling you as you breathe. Your body is like a child. It tells you what it needs if you listen to it. It even tells you what emotions need attention when you breathe into it. Allow yourself to feel and you will know when you need rest or activity. The mind can lie. The body never does.
2. Take time to receive from God and the angels every day
I am reminding myself to do this every morning and every night before bed. Just a few minutes of sitting in reception of God's grace can change your life, body, health, and everything else. Sit. Breathe. Receive.
Unobstructed, flowing energy equal a flowing life which means flowing finances, flowing love, and flowing grace...
3. Give and Receive Graciously
When you give, do so from the heart. Remain present as you share a kind word with someone. Look them in the eye. Give the gift of your presence in each moment.
When you receive a gift of compliment gift the receiver with your appreciation. Write a thank you note. Don't brush off the compliment or the gift. Take it in with your whole heart.
In any exchange, we are giving and receiving Divine Love. As the angels once said humorously, "You don't want to clog up God's arteries!"
Have a blessed week in a blissful flow...
Love you all!
