The Stronger the Flow, the Stronger the Feelings

Hi Dear Friends,

A River of Love is pouring into our reality and washing up intense emotions for many – overwhelming love, outbursts of anger, or sudden tears. You may want to get going but don't feel like moving. I've heard this and more from hundreds of people during the past few weeks.

The angels talk about why these feelings are so strong, and how to love ourselves through them while reaching for a better vibe. I'll share my own experience and tips. Be kind to sweet, wonderful you! We're in the throes of birthing!

This is a longer read, so grab a cup of coffee or tea, or whatever you like, and receive the flow of love that the angels are sending you through their words.

Love you all!
♥ Ann

Message from the Angels

My dear friends, we love you so very much,

Upon your earth there is an unprecedented flow of love creating movement and change. You have, collectively called for it. In the confinement of quarantine, you longed for freedom. In months of separation, you cried for connection. Watching the horrors of racism you prayed for unity. Going within and creating better futures in your inner world, your desires were prayers that called to the heavens for support!

Unlike any time ever before in human history, love is flowing to you, through you, and when permitted, from you! Love is flowing into a world that is ready to rebirth itself into a brighter, greater, grander, more glorious, kinder, unified, creative future! You are the ones creating this change by your willingness to dream it. You are the ones allowing for it by your willingness to tune yourself to the frequency of love. You start with love and kindness for yourselves, and then you spiral outward, expressing your love for the world according to the dictates of your own Divine inspiration.

As you move forward, it is good to understand that the greater the flow of Love, the greater the magnitude of your feelings – both positive and negative.

If you watch a physical river, there is little disturbance when a gentle flow reaches a boulder in its path. However, a rushing river suddenly creates massive gurgling, bubbling, frothing waves when its powerful current runs into a boulder. So too, in a greater flow of love you notice your own boulders of resistance ever so much more strongly!

Your feelings are perfect indicators as to whether or not you are allowing or resisting the flow of Love through the universe and through yourself.

When you allow love to flow to you and through you, you feel bliss. In resistance, you feel pain. Most of you feel varying degrees in between, with occasional peaks on both ends of the spectrum.

For example, when you are immersed in the present moment, genuinely enjoying and appreciating what is in front of you, and not thinking any thoughts that would block the rushing torrent of love, you can feel a bliss that was once accessible only to those who worked diligently on their spiritual practice and meditation for decades! Many of you will find yourself seeing energy, perceiving spirit more clearly, and being bombarded by inspired thoughts that guide you to your dreams. These are the moments, dear ones, when you have no resistance whatsoever to the flow of love. These are your moments of heaven on earth!

When you experience (as so many of you are!) what we call emotional eruptions or sudden outbursts of intense "negative" emotion, this is simply an indicator that you have run up against a pocket of your own resistance to the flow of love.

Perhaps you're focusing on something that bothers you, rather than something that pleases you. Perhaps you're trying to push yourself to feel a certain way or do something that someone else says you should... but you don't feel this way. Perhaps you need rest, food, or recreation but you've been ignoring your own needs. Perhaps you're judging yourself or another or trying to impose your will on another. In any of those cases, you're resisting the natural flow towards greater love and joy. These behaviors and thought patterns are taught, conditioned, humanly accepted, and understandable, but the bottom line is that resisting love's flow doesn't make you happy.

In fact, resistance to love's flow is at the root of all human pain and suffering.

Sometimes you can begin to shift out of this resistance easily. You can take a breath and imagine you're breathing in light, love, and goodness. You can breathe out and imagine sending love out into the world. Sometimes it is truly that simple to return to the flow of love. In this very natural rhythm of breathing, of giving and receiving, you can easily return to its flow.

If you hold your breath, however, you start to feel a craving for air. Your body tightens. The circulation of nutrients, waste removal, and nerve signals is diminished. Likewise, if you refused to exhale you would want to burst.

Similarly, if you don't shift your focus to take in a vibration of love offered to you in each moment, you crave love in ever-increasing measure. If you don't flow love outward in some form on a regular basis, you will feel like you want to burst.

We're not saying you have to like everything. We're not saying you have to receive human love from everything or everyone, or even flow love outwards to everything and everyone at all times. This would be an ideal state, and while it is a lofty goal, we're simply reminding you that you can re-enter the flow of love, much more easily, no matter what is going on around you.

Find an easy way to take in love, even if you simply focus on a single pleasing thought. Find an easy way to flow love outward if only by praying for, or appreciating anything or anyone in your life, especially yourself.

The object of your attention matters far less than finding the feeling and flow of love. This is an extremely different paradigm from the one most of you learned, and a critical understanding to help you navigate 5D reality with joy.

We'll say it again:

The object of your attention matters far less than finding the feeling and flow of love.

Your objects of attention simply help you tune your energy. You can focus with internal or external attention on anything that pleases you and begin to experience the flow once again.

You can allow love to flow to you, by taking in the beauty of a single wildflower, a single beautiful thought, a wonderful song, a joyful video, a delicious meal, a kind thought – anything that plugs you into feeling love and enjoying the moment. Breath that in.

You can flow love outward by appreciating a beautiful color, sharing a kindness with someone, praying for anything or anyone, simply sitting and imagining light filling you and emanating from you in silent presence. You can do good deeds, think kind thoughts, and allow yourself to be a beacon. You can flow love first and foremost by being kind to yourself. Breathe out.

Opening to a small flow leads to a larger flow if you are willing to continue in this fashion, reaching for a focus that feels more like love. As you continue to open and release areas of resistance to love, simply by shifting your focus, you will soon tune to a more blissful feeling space.

We know there are times, especially during periods of "emotional eruption" when you feel it is nearly impossible to re-enter the flow of love by finding a single pleasing thought! When someone triggers your pain; when life seems unfair; when you have focused too long on something upsetting – in these cases, it can feel as if you are possessed by the very thing you do not want to see! These intensely unpleasant emotions arise from feeling disconnected from the flow of love.

In these cases, you have become temporary, obsessively entangled with your focus on a negative object of attention, and have therefore removed your focus from the multitude of things, people, situations, and inner conditions that would assist you in finding the feeling and flow of love.

It is oh-so-human to blame the triggers of your eruptions! If only he/she/it would be different you'd feel better! That may be very true, but in assigning blame, rather than re-entering the flow of love, you render yourself entirely, spiritually powerless. It doesn't matter if what upsets you is a person, a situation, a republican, democrat, a vaccine, an unvaccinated person, one masked or unmasked, a rotten piece of fruit or a rotten behavior, a traffic jam, a horribly abusive people, or any one of millions of displeasing conditions.

We speak plainly here because we want to help you reclaim your power to feel joy. We want you to know your power to focus on a kinder feeling thought and thus to disentangle yourself from vibrations that do not please you. We want to support you in your soul's bliss, your unfolding desires, and in living, breathing, and contributing to the flow of love!

In this flow of Love you are aligned with nothing less than the Creator of worlds! You become the change for the world. You become powerful creators. You become effective communicators. You become part of the solutions instead of vibrationally reinforcing the problems.

We know this isn't always easy. There is plenty going on in the world to upset you right now, and many practiced negative emotions that are quite socially (but no SOUL-cially) acceptable.

Many of you have been asking us in your heart - What do I do when I experience an emotional eruption and I can't find a better feeling thought? What do I do when I feel stuck in negativity? What do I do when my ex/mother/father/brother/sister/boss/child is being so terrible I can't focus on any of the good people in my life? What do I do when I worry night and day about the country/the economy/my health/death, etc.? What do I do when I get stuck on a focus that feels terrible?

In these cases, dear ones, you can gently begin to release your resistance to love's flow by first, being kind to yourself. Make the choice to accept yourself where you are and love yourself through it. There's no need to berate yourself. There's no need to criticize yourself because you're a spiritual person who "should" know better. There's no need to beat yourself up because you can't find a single positive thought in the moment. You could only calm a screaming or crying child with distraction or, that failing, by soothing them until the emotion dissipates. When in an eruptive emotional state, you must grant yourself this same accepting, allowing, kindness.

Practically speaking, love yourself enough to allow the unpleasant feelings to flow through you in the healthiest and most responsible way that you can, and they will dissipate. Say to yourself, "Well I'm angry. I'm sad. I'm jealous. That's where I'm at, and that's OK for now." Then vent in private – in a journal, to God, or your angels. Wrap a cozy blanket around yourself, and cry the tears, without judgment. Immerse yourself in your jealousy and journal it until you wear it out and realize you don't want to feel powerless. Breathe deeply. Allow the unhappy energy to move and simply observe it flowing as if you are watching debris that was deeply lodged within you float up and out.

There will often be nuggets of loving gold once the intensity of the "negative" emotion dissipates. Under your sadness, comes a desire for comfort and kindness. Under your anger comes a desire for more balance or to move away from non-resonant conditions or beliefs. Underneath your jealousy is a desire to embrace your power to create.

As soon as you are able, gently steer your mind towards better feeling thoughts. Gently release your resistance to love. "I'm proud of myself. I allowed myself to feel and it didn't kill me. That was brilliant to just feel and observe, rather than re-act in a hurtful way! I love myself no matter what. I accept myself no matter what. Strong feelings won't kill me. Better out than in. I love myself. I have compassion for myself. I feel better now. I am going to create more comfort, to move closer towards what resonates and away from what doesn't. I'm going to learn to create. I'm no longer resisting love..." Hug yourself. Get yourself a glass of water and imagine filling it with love. Drink it.

Then, open to love's flow. Imagine opening your heart like a flower to the sun. Breathe slowly and deeply and with each in-breath imagine that flow of love pouring into you and through you. If you continue in this fashion, you may fall asleep. You may still have resistance and want to retreat back into upset. You may want to distract. Do your best to sit, breathe, open, breathe, and receive. You want to feel better. You want to be happy. You want to feel loved.

There are no "wrong" feelings dear friends. Your feelings simply indicate whether or not you are allowing or resisting love. They tell you what vibration you are currently tuned into, so you can choose whether or not that is the magnet with which you want to attract or allow your future.

There is no judgment from the heavens in this conversation. Resisting love does not diminish who you are in any way. It simply diminishes your experience of who you truly are.

In this very intense and beautiful flow of love, be kind and gentle with yourselves. Embrace yourselves where you are. Don't push yourselves to do or feel what you do not. Don't run from your feelings. When you can, gently shift to better feeling thoughts. When you are in the midst of emotional eruptions just observe the "debris" flowing through you in a kind and healthy way, until the "love" inevitably follows.

You are birthing yourselves anew. Your earth is birthing herself anew. Love is being birthed in a massive rushing flow right now. Enjoy the process. You are freeing yourselves from eons worth of conditioned resistance to love. You are freeing yourselves to see, be, experience, and express the love that you are made of.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann...

Hi Everyone,

It has been an intense few weeks judging by my in-box, my sessions with clients, and my own experience! I've had moments of unmitigated bliss. And at times, like many of you have been reporting, I've had emotional eruptions, as the angels call our intense bursts of feeling, that caught me by surprise.

A few weeks, I had one over something that seemed so silly I was taken aback by my own reaction! It was a busy day and I had a lot to do during my lunch break. I really just wanted to go out back and eat and enjoy my yard and the beautiful day but instead committed a spiritual faux pas by doing what I felt I should do, without any joy whatsoever to make it palatable.

I was on one of those automated customer service phone services that kept looping me back to menus that were unhelpful when I started to spiral downhill fast. None of the options addressed the problem that I was calling about and there was no human to be found – not by pressing #, *, or 0; not by saying "associate," "agent," "human," or "other." The pleasant computer voice kept sending me back to the main menu. The clock was ticking. I'd be lucky to get lunch at all, let alone outside. I wasn't going to get any rest till late tonight. I had no way of getting the problem resolved.

I came unglued. It was quite something. I had really spiraled into a lather quickly and wasn't easily finding a way to shift to better feeling thoughts. I started talking back to the computer-automated system. "No! That's not helpful! I need to talk to a human being!" She (the computer system) responded once again with the same thing – my tirade clearly falling on her deaf electronic ears, "I'm sorry I don't understand. Please select from our following options on the main menu." Argggh! I felt a fiery energy burning within me. I had the presence of mind to hang up, sit back, and try to shift my vibration.

For a while, the harder I tried to focus on a better feeling thought, the more unrelated, buried grievances arose within me. "Why did the computer have to break a few weeks ago just when things were going well? Why do people find it amusing when I hurt? Why does the world have to be so obsessed with an uncommon cold, rather than focusing on health and well-being?" I could have easily convinced people, including myself, of the "rightness" of my frustrations, but after years of living with angels I know there's nothing right about feeling unhappy!

So, I did what the angels taught me and just accepted myself as is. I vented in my journal, until I wore it out, and realized none of the topics had anything to do with the real issue. The real issue was that I had resisted loving myself during my lunch break, and had been overworking the past few days, assisting people who were venting to me! I had been a little too tuned into the vibration of upset, vs. the vibration of self-love.

By now my chances of a leisurely lunch were over, but at least I was sane. I used the tool the angels taught me to get back in the flow quickly. "I am who I am. Much calmer. Life is what it is. Problem to solve, no time to eat. What Next? Open to love." So I sat, breathed, received, and let the love of the heavens pour into me.

Perhaps due to the sudden shift from resistance to reception, I had yet one more heart-pounding, bliss-beyond-words mystical experience. The room turned to energy. I felt a river of love rushing through me. My thoughts turned off and my heart turned on and I sat there for a time beyond time. Suddenly I popped back into regular awareness and so did a solution. "Get on the Online chat." Problem solved. I grabbed a quick bite of lunch and had a blissful afternoon.

I am not able to channel miracle energy because I'm beyond-human perfect. Not by any stretch. I'm able to channel it because even when I'm in resistance to love, I know that choosing to love myself in that less than desirable space, will unblock love's flow.

Likewise, I'm not able to love the light within those who hate and berate me because I'm perfect. I'm able to do so because I can love the light within me, even when I'm not feeling "perfect." When you choose to love yourself no matter what it is easy to allow others their own humanity.

It ends up Mother Earth was blowing and venting a volcano that very day in Iceland – one that hadn't erupted in 6000 years. I was apparently in good company!

These past few weeks hundreds of people have confessed to me that they're feeling "volcanic" and having "emotional eruptions" too. Some have shared profound experiences of love bubbling up. Some have shared experiences of upsets, tantrums, frustrations, sudden tears, etc.

Beneath it all, the angels remind us, is an incredibly intense, increased flow of love that has come in response to the outpouring of prayers – from humanity, for humanity. We're just popping a few corks as the champagne of love bubbles to the surface :)

Here are a few pointers on how to help you weather intense emotions when you can't yet get to a better feeling thought...

1. Let it flow and let it go... in a healthy way

When you feel strong emotion let it flow and let it go in a way that is kind to yourself and others. Ask yourself, "If a little child came to me with this emotion what would I do for him or her?" Do that for you. You can hug yourself, or wrap yourself in a blanket and have a good cry. You can curl up and take a nap. You can get a journal and vent to your angels, or God. You can write the letters you'd never send and shred them. You can walk vigorously, punch a pillow, exercise, or clean the ouse with zeal. You can put on music that matches your mood and flow dance to release the energy.

Whatever you choose, try to simply view this as moving energy, releasing resistance, and allowing love to flow.

2. Bless the trigger

It is so easy, and conditioned, to blame the trigger for the mood. "We wouldn't be angry if he/she/it did/didn't... whatever."

A deeper truth is that we wouldn't be upset if we were aligned with the Love that we really are. If we love ourselves, the opinions of unloving people don't matter. If we exist in a vibration of trust in God's love and protection the irresponsible people can't hurt us. If we own our own right to be and follow our own guidance, the people who get upset at us for not satisfying their demands, look like tantrum-throwing children and engender compassion rather than upset. If we embrace life eternal and see through the eyes of our soul, death might be emotionally hard but not devastating because we know where to seek and find our dear ones in their expanded state of being.

It is our resistance to love that our triggers reveal. When we truly own that and love ourselves through the more difficult times, we reclaim our power, our joy, and the true essence of our being.

3. Tune to better, as soon as you are able

After the eruption subsides, gently steer yourself towards better feeling thoughts... no matter what the subject

When a child has a tantrum you can't pacify them until they've worn it out, perhaps in a timeout. When a child is wailing and crying you can't distract them with something better until you've held them and let them have a good cry. We're not much different. When we experience a strong negative emotion, we sometimes have to let it "wear itself out" in a kind way before we can gently steer our thoughts towards those that feel better.

Here's a useful tip from the angels - You don't have to have better feeling thoughts about the same subject that upset you. In fact, it is easier to choose better feeling thoughts on a better feeling subject!

Better to use your power of focus to focus on all that is good, easy to love, and kind in your life, and then, later, in a higher vibe, you'll be able to think more lovingly about the original topic.

4. When strong love or strong inspirations come, ride the wave!

When you have those amazing moments of non-resistance to love and inspiration, prioritize enjoying them! Put all non-essential actions aside when those huge waves of love hit you and ride the wave. Sit, feel, enjoy. Bliss out. Imagine opening to more. When you receive inspirations, capture them immediately. Write them down or voice record it on your phone. You'll think you will remember later, but don't count on it... they come from a vibration that is not always maintained so capture them when you can!

See if you can memorize the blissful feeling so you can tune into it, at will, later. The more you allow yourself to really pay attention during those magic, present moments, the more you can find their vibration once again.

As we love ourselves through these intense and wonderful times, we open to the greater reality of who we truly are – nothing less than the One Love that Sources universes, having an experience, through us, as us, in us... One with us!

Love you all!
