My dear friends, we love you so very much.
It is a time for taking inventory in life, for assessing what you have created, and for getting clear on what you wish to create in the future. We offer you a simple exercise that will not only help you take inventory of your outer reality, but also help you define more clearly who you are and who you want to be in your inner reality.
Take a breath and look around your lives as if you just stepped into this reality. Go outside for a moment and then walk in your home as if you were doing so for the first time. Imagine you are a guest and you have never seen this place. Really look at everything, not through the eyes of your past, but through the eyes of who you are now. What do you love now? What needs to go? Everything in your house either reflects the beauty and harmony of your spirit, or perhaps beliefs that no longer serve you. Look at the outer world and see a reflection of the inner. If this were a stranger's home and you were asked to move in, on the budget you have, what would you keep? What would you change? Don't be a stranger in your own lives dear ones. Move into your own homes, and more importantly, move into your present sacred point of view. If you know what you want in your home, you will be clearer on what you want in your lives as well.
Do you want more color? Perhaps you seek variety in life. Do you want a calmer environment. Perhaps you seek peace. Do you want to get rid of hand me downs that you never enjoyed? Perhaps you want to get rid of out dated hand me down beliefs about what you deserve? Do you need to de clutter? What in your lives and your minds needs de cluttering as well? What gives you great delight and joy? This reflects the beauty and harmony of your soul. What do you wish to bring into your home and your life as well? Take time to reflect on this and then to imagine the reality you wish to create, both internal and external.
Within your current budget of time and money, get to work dear ones on creating a home that is filled with love. Allow yourself to "move into" your own life! Clear the clutter. Get rid of the things you do not love. Give your home and your spirit room to breathe! Fix what you can, and stop beating yourself up for what you can't yet do. Take time to dream of any improvements you might make in this home or a future one, for in your day dreaming, you are getting in touch with the beauty and harmony of your own spirit right now. You are acknowledging your self worth, and beginning to set the universal wheels in motion.
You deserve to live in your own life dear friends, not the life that was defined for you by the beliefs or manipulations of others. You deserve to live in a home, no matter how simple, that makes your spirit sing. For when you are at home in your own life, your materially life will reflect this as well and you will both find and create beauty and harmony wherever you reside.
God bless you! We love you so very much.

Message From Ann
It is a Monday as I sit here and channel Saturday's newsletter. The topic of cleaning and clearing the house was the last thing on my mind. Understandably, my aging furry friend gets my fullest attention right now. However, I sat and thought about the angel message, and realized that it is true. I feel more centered, settled, and able to focus when my home reflects the peace and order I have inside as well. When I create balance and self care in my life I have a desire to be more orderly. When I am more orderly, it motivates me to create more balance and self care.
During the holidays I had the time to sit still for awhile and it was a joy to look around my home and see the reflection of years of personal growth. My home is colorful, eclectic, and contains things that have stories or meaning attached. I continually release stuff when done with it, passing it on to friends or charities. It feels like I not only live in the flow of grace at times, but also in the flow of stuff! People give me wonderful things and in return I share what I have as well.
As I looked around my home, doing the angel exercise for just a few minutes, I saw one thing I didn't really care for, and yet couldn't change right now. It was a tough adjustment for me to cover my entire bedroom carpet in pee pee pads and towels and to move into the guest room so my aging dog could be comfortable and sleep well without the parade of spirits that always accompanies me, and without me worrying about the carpet. I was looking at all the towels when one of the angels said, "Look at this patchwork floor of softness, absorbency, and love. What does that say about you?" I want to provide soft spaces for other souls. I want to help them find that God's love within them will absorb their pain. I love that much. I saw myself in those pee pee pads and towels in a whole new light of self appreciation.
As you look around your home and see things you like, cherish how that reflects all that is good inside of you. And when you see things you don't like, find something to love about what that reflects anyway. Only when we truly love and appreciate our past can we release it. Only when we truly embrace and love our present can we create better.
And so I hug, hold, nourish, and nurture my dear older dog for the duration of his life on earth. I wash the towels and each time, in so doing, I remind myself that I have washed my soul clean as well.
Have a blessed week,
Love and hugs,
