In this month of love remember to not only seek out an experience of love but also to share that experience with one another, for as you give simple loving kindnesses, you draw the creative force of love to you and through you.
As you smile at a stranger, it is not just your smile, but God’s smile. As you comfort a friend it is not just your comfort, but God’s love reaching through you. As you take time to take care of yourself a little bit more, you are allowing God to care for you as well.
With each simple act of love and kindness you align your mind, body, heart, and soul with the Creator. So if you want to feel loved, be loving, genuinely. If you cannot find it within you to give love to another, then at least choose to be loving to yourself, for it is simply the vibration of love in any form at all that beings to put you back into the experience of resting in the arms of a loving creator.
Each of you wants to experience love in every moment of every day. As human beings, however, your conditioning has taught you to resist love. You want to take a moment and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, but you feel you must rush to get on with the day. You want to call your family or text a friend but you fear you will have to stay in the conversation too long. You want to feel loving towards someone who hurt you but you fear this will open the door to more pain. Dear ones, have your coffee or tea. Text or call and say, “I only have a moment but felt like saying hello.” Feel loving towards those who hurt you but simply don’t allow them back into your life if they haven’t changed.
In each moment, you have a choice, and a chance, to feel the love of the Creator flowing to you and through you. In each moment you have a chance to align yourself with the very thing you are seeking, the very thing you came to earth to remember. It is here for you, always and forever, right now.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message From Ann
I post inspirational messages on Facebook every day. Like my newsletters, I often queue them up in advance when I know I'm going to be busy. It always fascinates me to get to the day in question and discover that what I have “randomly” written speaks clearly to my heart and the issues of the day!
On the first Monday of the new year, the message I had queued up in advance was simple - Happy First Monday of 2015! Instead of groaning and saying, "Oh, back to work," try this out: "Oh! Another day to live and love and laugh and create and enjoy dancing through life."
It struck me, when I read what I'd written, that every day is another day to live and love. It is a privilege to wake up and breathe! I decided this year that I would make every act an act of love, and when I started rushing around, I promised myself I would slow down and focus on putting love into what I was doing once again.. no matter what.
So here I am today, with an entire series of Ann & the Angels, plus 12 new outfits to create, the need to create several newsletters, new Facebook posts, and work full time, among other things I must do to remain in balance, maintain a home, deal with unkind people, etc. Instead of feeling rushed, stressed, and thinking too much about how I am going to get it all done, I started to just surrender to love.
I really do love connecting with the angels and all of you. I love the shows I’m creating and what they are doing for people. I am not a fan of the logistics involved so I'll just find creative ways to love the grunt work too! When I clean my home I think of it as loving my home. I fill it with positive energy and it loves me right back. When I randomly think of people who have been cruel and upsetting to me, I stop and realize that, even in their cruelty, they were coming from their pain. I say a prayer and send them love. Every time I start to worry about how on earth I’m going to get it all done and still find time to sleep, I’m making myself stop, and focus on love again.
By choosing love, over and over, I feel God’s love flowing through me, more strongly than ever before. I’ve felt nothing but bliss even when there was ill intent aimed my way. I’ve been able to breathe deeply, sink deeply into the moment and find new levels of productivity. Best of all, all those things we think we need to be happy disappear from our concern when we are happy… and then they come anyway. We’re no longer getting in God’s way with our fears.
So try it this week. Keep choosing love. Flex that mental muscle… and feel the bliss that comes with loving, not for the sake of being loved back, but simply because it feels amazingly good to have love flowing through you!
