Choose to Love

My dear friends, we love you so very much.

We know many of you have been experiencing an unprecedented level of emotional sensitivity here upon your planet earth and while this may be a challenge for many of you, take heart, it is a chance to clear out the old and make room for the new. When you cry seemingly as if a wave of sadness has passed through you, realize it is only a wave of love washing the sadness up and out. When you feel a sudden burst of upset, know that love is pushing a deeper truth to the surface. For none of your emotions are without value, and each and every one points to a greater desire for love.

Your mother earth is feeling things very deeply as well dear ones. She has had a tough year in that there are wounds to her body that are not yet healed, and like you she has felt fatigued and saddened by the discord among her children. Yet still she loves, and asks that you too, choose to love. Choose to love and be kind to yourselves, no matter what is going on inside of you. Choose to love others by focusing on the fact that everyone, no matter how enlightened or unevolved is seeking love in the best way they know how to do it. Choosing love feels better. Choosing love heals hearts. Choosing love is not always a feeling of being warm and fuzzy but rather making a decision to focus on the perfection of the soul no matter what the personality is currently displaying.

When you choose love you are saying, in effect, "I acknowledge the presence of God within me and all creation. This is worthy of love. This is what I choose to focus upon." And in so doing, you become the light in a darkened world, much as the baby in the manger brought a very great light, and the lamp in the temple burned miraculously longer than expected. It is your light, and your love that heartens the world, brightens up the heavens, and creates a kinder reality upon the earth. Start with yourselves. Grant yourselves love, forgiveness, and compassion, and then spill these very same gifts out into the world.

This holiday season dear ones, gift the world by acknowledging the light, the love, and the Presence of God within all.

God bless you! We love you so very much.

Message From Ann

There seems to be an odd phenomena going around. Many sensitive and caring people I know have told me that they are experiencing waves of sadness overcoming them, for seemingly no good reason. Each acknowledges some sadness within themselves, but as the angels said it seems amplified beyond reason. I have felt this too. It comes and goes in waves, and then joy returns just as quickly.

When I asked the angels what was up, they said Mother Earth is sad about the fact that humanity is not getting along too well. Earlier in the year when the gulf coast was pierced and drained so quickly, the energetic field of the earth and her ecosystem was very wounded. People felt this. I witnessed more fatigue and physical issues in my clients than ever before. We used to get a lot of our physical energy from the earth. Now "Mom" is not feeling so well and we must learn to tap into the Divine for ourselves a lot more. People who aren't used to finding their own energy are vying for it with one another in the most unevolved and unloving ways. People who do practice tapping into their own energy are experiencing intense feeling but also more rapid growth and higher states of joy.

So every day when I get up I put my arms up in the air and pray this prayer: "God fill my mind, heart, body, and soul with your grace. Fill my every thought, word, and deed with your grace. Fill my home, property, neighborhood, and car with your grace. Fill my dogs, friends, and family with your grace." And I sit and wait to feel the heat pouring through my arms and into my heart. It feels wonderful. I pray to be aligned with God's will for my life... "God take my life, make me love it, and let me know clearly what to do and when." These are simply prayers, but so powerful.

And still, even in spite of my best intentions, and fervent prayers, some days are easier than others. My aging dogs gave me a reprieve for a few months but now their care is becoming increasingly difficult once again. I love them, so I surrender more and more each day and focus on the love, but some days I feel I can't give them all I wish I could. And so I have to lighten up and choose to love myself as I am because I am truly doing my best.

We can be so hard on ourselves, and yet God and the angels love us in a way that is so profound it is hard to comprehend unless you take the time to sit still and ask to feel it. It only takes a few moments to sit and ask for an angel hug, or to feel the touch of God in your heart, and it is like re-booting your internal hard drive.

So the next time life challenges you to love yourself, stop, breathe, and ask God and the angels to help you experience their love. When you feel that it becomes almost impossible to avoid loving yourself as well :)

As the angels say, Give yourself a little Presence this holiday season :)!
Love and hugs,
