My dear friends, we love you so very much,
We know that so many of you are deeply disturbed by the violence you witness in the world. Certainly, we would wish for each and every one of you a kind and loving experience in your lives, and peace in your hearts even when the world is not loving.
"How can this happen," so many of you are crying unto the heavens. "Has our world gone mad?" We feel your fear. We feel your pain. We feel your compassion. Above all, we feel your love.
Take a moment. Breathe slowly and deeply.
Imagine you can breathe through the top of your head, bringing pure light down into your heart. As this light rests at the heart, hold your breath for just a few seconds and feel the light fill you with angelic peace. Breathe out now as if this light could wash any fear or upset down through the soles of your feet.
Breathe light in through the top of your head. Expand it in your heart. Exhale allowing all darkness to drain through the soles of your feet. Do this until you begin to feel peaceful.
Now that you are peaceful, dear ones, let us speak about the violence in the world. The souls that perpetrate it are possessed by anger, hatred, and pain. They are chained by fears, many of which have been passed down by abusive generations.
Some are souls who came to this earth seeking to heal their own fears and have not yet done so. Some are souls who indignantly want the world to see their suffering, their fear, and their point of view. They are the "lost" and the "lucifers." More than anything, they need your prayers.
How can you pray for someone who has killed, maimed, wounded, or abused another? How can you pray for someone who has been unkind to you?
First of all, make peace with the fact that you are not going to like them. There is no need to like the hateful individuals. We, in the heavens, love the light within all souls but even we don't care for behaviors that perpetuate pain and separation!
Nonetheless, much as a mother would unconditionally love a child and see his or her goodness beneath all unloving actions, we see the goodness, no matter how buried, that lives in all human hearts.
So pray dear ones, with us...
May the lost, the wounded, the angry, the abused, the possessed, and the hateful of this world come to know the love that lives inside them. Heal their hearts, uplift their souls, comfort the abused children that live buried and enchained within their hearts.
Help them repent, forgive themselves, and make amends in meaningful ways that help to heal the hearts of all. Help them free themselves from the chains of their own misunderstandings and misdeeds."
Dear Divine Source, lift these souls into your love – and everything within me too that hates, that is wounded, abused, attacked, or unhealed – into the light of your love.
Thank you. You have just made a contribution of love to the human race that will ripple into eternity. You are a blessing upon this earth.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
-- The Angels
Message From Ann
In what seems like another lifetime, but was really only decades ago I was an angry young woman. On the outside, I was happy happy, sugar coated, syrupy sweet. On the inside, buried so deeply I didn't even know it, I had a simmering rage. It popped out occasionally.
I felt it when someone attacked me with their words. I felt it when I saw someone being unkind to another, and when I witnessed the world's violence on TV. I felt it so strongly once I hurled a pair of scissors like a javelin, straight into the wall. I didn't aim it at others. Instead, I let it fly in private or aimed it at myself.
Inwardly, I blamed others for my anger, but the angels taught me otherwise. "Anger," they say, "is a force that causes the seed to burst open and reach for the light." It is meant to be a catalyst for our own growth and change, not a tool for aiming at and hurting others or ourselves.
So when you feel angry, instead of changing another, it is time to grow.
When I got angry at dangerous drivers in traffic, the angels tasked me to have more faith in God and to know I wasn't going to die before my time!
When I got angry at people who attacked me with unkind words, the angels taught me to see them as hurting children and to pray for them.
When I got angry at the violence in the news, the angels asked me not to contribute to the vibration of hatred with my own, but rather to pray, send energy and light, and contribute to the vibrations of peace and love by being peaceful and loving in my own life.
When I got angry at the jealous person who sent me spiritual attacks the past few years, the angels helped me get over my fears and learn to love "the other as self" so deeply that nothing could touch me.
As I took responsibility for my own energy, my own thoughts and my own feelings, I stopped being angry. As I embraced a greater faith, I stopped feeling as if the words and actions of others could damage me. Instead of anger, I felt compassion. Instead of contributing to the energy I disliked, I became part of the vibrational solution.
Here are a few tips to help avoid becoming upset or fearful when you witness anger or violence in the world:
1. Use anger as a catalyst for growth and positive change
When you feel anger or fear, ask yourself, "What do I need to change? How do I have to act, think, or feel differently in order to feel good again?"
This is a hard question to ask because it removes us from our external focus and points us inward. However, it helps us stop giving others our power. It gives us back out God-given right to feel better. The answers may not come right away... but if you keep asking, a light will be revealed in the darkness.
There are many ways to shift your vibration into greater love. Get creative. Above all know that you have that power.
2. Practice Ho'oponopono
Ho'oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian practice popularized in the modern world by Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len. He helped cure criminal patients through the knowledge that we are all One. He worked on healing himself and they magically healed as well. The process is simple. Imagine you can say these things to the soul of the person who has upset you.
- I'm Sorry
- Forgive Me
- Thank You
- I Love You
Here is my interpretation:
"I'm sorry" because I have contributed to the vibrations that you aimed at me, either in this life or another. At some point in my life I have been angry or unkind. At some point in my life I have been afraid. I have added to these energies at some point in my existence. "Forgive me."
"Thank you" for showing me areas in which I can heal and love more deeply. "I love you," because in our depths we are One.
3. Turn the other cheek
There is a mistaken notion that when Jesus said, "Turn the other cheek," He meant so we could get slapped on the other side! Nothing could be further from truth! He told me he meant that we should "look away" from the darkness, and look towards the light and truth in the world!
Try it. Give yourself permission to focus on what is good, beautiful, and true, rather than what is dark and painful.
I think this topic is incredibly important given the recent terrorist attacks and the ensuing pain and anger around them. Together, we have a powerful collective light.
Love you all!
