Hi Dear Friends!
As our world opens up, the angels remind us to keep our hearts open too - to ourselves and one another, so we can assist our world in its birthing process. I'll share some tips to help you do just that.
Love you all!
Message from the Angels
My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Center yourselves in an open heart, for as your society begins to open up once again, your heart will be your guide for staying safe, happy, loving, and even joyous as the human race continues to rebirth itself into greater love.
It may not be an easy birthing in the short term. There are going to be a wide variety of opinions expressed in the months ahead – some kindly, some loudly, and some gently, and some in rather obnoxious and offensive ways. Nonetheless you can sail through this time, buoyed by love and guided by grace.
Everyone has been diving deeper, feeling more deeply, and getting to know themselves better – for better or for worse – during this pandemic. Some of you ran straight into your hearts and discovered your huge compassion for humanity. Some of you ran straight into your creative spirit and discovered new passions, talents, businesses, and contributions. Some of you ran deep into a profound loneliness, or anxiety and fear. Some of you ran into your anger, frustration, and feelings of helplessness. Some of you ran into your judgments. Some of you discovered a greater tolerance for one another. Some of you discovered you loved the life you've created. Many of you experienced a mixture of emotions. Whatever you found within, you got to know yourself better.
You also discovered new gifts and ways of coping with adversity, discomfort, and the unknown. In trying times, new strengths emerge. When you couldn't change your outer world, many of you went within to create change in the vibrational world, thus setting yourselves up for a glorious future. Many of you who faced financial challenges had to rely on the kindness of others, or fall back into the arms of faith. Those of you who were out serving the masses had no choice but to place your faith and trust in the power that loves you and gives you life. You have all been growing tremendously. You are birthing a new, more loving world.
So, as you move forward, and "open up" society, be gentle with yourself and keep your heart wide open. Pray to see the world through the eyes of the Divine and the eyes of your angels.
Maintain the positive changes you have made during the pandemic. Continue to feel your feelings deeply, instead of getting so busy once again that you forget to feel. Keep connecting more deeply with friends and family, for in isolation many of you found deeper and more authentic ways of relating to each other than superficial conversation. Continue to be resourceful. Use your God-given creativity. Waste less. Get out in nature more. Honor your earth and your fellow human beings. Go forth with an open heart, in love with yourself, in love with life, and in love with your fellow human beings.
Especially choose to send love, prayers, and light to the members of your human family that are feeling fearful, helpless, and angry. You don't have to dance or dialogue with them, but please don't judge them. They too, are just struggling – perhaps more than most – to birth themselves in a greater love.
When you see someone acting in a way that seems threatening – perhaps they are not wearing a mask and you wish they were – instead of falling into fear and judgment, stand in the power of love. Open your heart to streams of well-being and grace. Use intention and imagine light pouring through you and outward in all directions. Not only will you feel safe in its flow, you will be a blessing to all those around.
If you have to go back to work and you are fearful, remember that your guidance will tell you if and when it is right for you to do so. Some of you will quit and move on. Some of you will gladly return. Some of you will need to take some much needed time off after working on the front lines.
Listen to your hearts. Keep your hearts open by being kind to yourself first. Then, no matter what anyone else does, be kind. Be loving... or at least refuse to engage in lower vibrational interactions that serve no one.
There is no one "right answer" as to how to re-open an entire planet, dear friends. Everyone, without exception is attempting to do their best according to their patterns, programming, and level of awareness. Everyone is learning. Trust your open, loving, heart to know what is right for you in a given moment. Live and let live. No one can harm you if you exist in love. No one can "make" you sick if you abide in a mentality of well-being. No one else ever has any authority over your inner conditions, and as you all know, your inner conditions either attract or allow what you experience in your outer lives.
So, keep your hearts open for that is more important – now and always – than when your business, your stores, your concerts, and the rest of your world opens up.
This too shall pass. Enough of you are moving beyond the fear that has empowered this virus to become the monster it did, as it fed off the fears and mass hysteria. Of course, we encourage you to follow your guidelines for health, hygiene, and courtesy to your fellow human beings, but do so with an open heart and a commitment to be kind and loving to yourself and one another.
An open heart can heal a person, a group, a society and indeed your entire world, for in each open heart the Divine finds an open window through which it can pour Love into your life and into the entire human race.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann...
It is intense out there to say the least! I live in Arizona where there has been an admirable attempt to do the impossible – to balance health and economic concerns. As I occasionally watch the debates, the arguments, and the impatient protests, my conditioned reaction is to judge the angry demonstration. After working with angels for two decades, I know better. They remind me always to keep an open heart and to send love and prayers to those in fear, anger, or impatience. After all they're just hurting. If I'm honest, I've been there in the past. If we're all honest, most of us have been there.
We don't have to like the behaviors. We have to honor our own feelings. Nonetheless, we can always pray, imagine the light within ourselves and the hurting souls, and thus be a force of love in the world, rather than just another voice of discontent.
It is time to be gentle and kind – to ourselves first – no matter what mood or mindset we find ourselves in. If we can accomplish that kindness towards self, we so much more easily grant it to another. We're all newborn right now. We're all feeling a little more vulnerable and sensitive than usual. Tenderness towards ourselves is more important than ever before.
Early in the pandemic, I was frequently visiting a neighborhood App I was touched deeply by the kindness neighbors were showing each other. As quarantine went on and tempers flared however, and vigorous, nasty debates started to pop up. Grown men and women were attacking one another, while hiding behind computer screens and behaving in ways they would never think to do face-to-face. I was appalled. I was judgmental! I wanted to give them a good talking-to, a hand-slap, a firm-mommy-sending-them-to-their-room message, but I stopped myself before hitting "enter." That was my ego. My heart wants peace.
I chose to honor my heart, and to use discernment vs. judgment. The angry and abusive folks had right to behave however they wished. I had a right to want peace. Once I sat with that truth, the solution was easy. I left the App and prayed for all to find the peace I'd chosen in my own life.
It is so much easier to keep our hearts open to others if we take care of our own first. It is easier to live and let live when we honor our own guidance.
It isn't always easy to keep our hearts open. I've failed miserably at times. But the good news is that the heart wants to be open. The heart wants you to love yourself so you can love others. The heart wants us to accept ourselves first without conditions – whether we're feeling high, happy, and holy, or not. The mind may be conditioned to hang onto pain but the heart craves peace, passion, purpose, and joy. It wants to be open.
Here are a few pointers to keep your heart open while we move forward in this bumpy and often tumultuous re-birthing and re-opening of society.
1. Take good care of yourself
Take an honest look at your life and discover areas where you require better self-care. Do you need to go to bed earlier so you can wake up and exercise or have time without rushing? Do you need to take time to chew your food, read a book, ask for help from others? Do you need to be on the phone with friends or family more... or less?
Really be honest with yourself and start with small, simple, authentic and positive changes. When we care for ourselves well we can so much more easily care about others. When we love ourselves, we can love others.
2. Honor your own feelings
Forget what the rest of the world is doing for a moment. If you feel uncomfortable about something, don't do it. Listen to your heart, your guidance, and the loving impulses within you.
Guidance feels good. Guidance feels loving. Guidance doesn't come with a lot of drama or fear. It just feels natural, right, gentle, and kind. If you can listen to your own feelings and knowings you won't have to worry about being safe or provided for moving forward.
Heaven wants you to be safe and provided for.
A peaceful heart feels its own feelings and biologically triggers a peaceful mind that can think more clearly and perceive incoming thoughts of guidance more easily.
3. Discern vs. Judge
The angels say "Judgment says no right to be. Discernment says not right for me." Judgment feels bad. Discernment feels good.
Judgment says, "That idiot isn't wearing a mask! How dare they expose me!" Discernment says, "I'll wear one and walk far away from those who aren't."
Or Judgment says, "Look at all those fearful folks wearing masks!" whereas discernment might say, "I am not afraid but I'll be compassionate and wear one so I don't inadvertently infect or frighten others."
I'm not picking sides on this issue - just illustrating a point.
We must all find our own truth. The angels remind us that the deepest truth is always loving and compassionate – for ourselves first, then for all.
Keeping an open heart means realizing that you have a right to be as you are. You have a right to feel as you do. Others have the very same.
We'll never all be in agreement. Perhaps in years to come we will agree to disagree and realize that we are all #InItTogether, and always have been.
Love you all!
