My dear friends, we love you so very much.
Celebrate dear ones for you are all moving forward once again in your lives. Whether the motion is "voluntary" or appears to be motivated by outside factors, each one of your souls is striving to create more joy, more love, a feeling of greater richness in the quality of your lives. Richness in your lives is never tied to the money in your bank account but rather, it is related to the amount of love and joy, connection and meaning that you choose experience on a daily basis.
And so dear ones, how do you add abundance to your daily lives? You first opportunity to experience an abundant life occurs upon awakening. Do you rush out of bed, stressed and worried about the day? Or perhaps can you experience this very same moment a little differently by taking a few deep breaths, stretching, giving thanks for your bed, your life, and another day in which you can create a whole new reality here upon your planet earth? When you arise, try this for a few days. Take just a few extra minutes upon awakening to fully allow your spirit to get back into your body after a night of being out and about with angels and guides. Take a few moments to breathe, stretch, and luxuriate in the feeling of having a body and the ability to breathe at all. Think about what you would like to do this day and ask for the help in achieving your tasks smoothly and gracefully. Envision your wonderful day. Ask that your day be filled with grace. Breathe. Feel yourself resting in the arms of God .
When you eat your breakfast, there too you can create an experience of lack or abundance. Do you even eat your breakfast? Do you rush? Do you throw something in your body without regard for it's desires and feelings as well. Or perhaps dear ones, can you stop, slow down, breathe, and ask your body what it wants to eat in ordered to be nurtured and sustained for the day ahead. Can you take a few minutes to prepare and eat your food with conscious awareness and gratitude?
When you greet your spouse, your child, your pet, or your co-workers are you present with them. Do you look into their eyes, seek the spark of light there within. Do you greet them cheerfully, see them as human beings - spirits in and of their own right who have cares and concerns just as you do - or do you see them as nuisances - people to be managed, avoided, taken care of? Do you share of your heart and your truth honestly and kindly with them, or do you close up for fear they will not care or understand you? In an abundant life dear ones, you are yourself and you allow yourself to connect with the people around you. You will repel those who do not belong and attract those who do, for this is the law of life. When you bring your heart to the surface without shame, without a need for acknowledgement, or without a desire to make others agree, your life will adjust to bring those to you who honor it.
These are but a few examples of how you can experience abundance in your life. An abundant life has nothing to do with money, but rather to do with an experience of love, joy, connection, and meaning. These things are all available no matter how much or how little you feel you have, for these qualities are within you already, there for the giving. Seek to love what you can. Seek joy in the simple pleasures in life. Seek connection with other human beings and let them sort themselves out around you. You can find meaning in the simplest act if it is done with love. Brushing your teeth can be a spiritual discipline if you do it with consciousness, gratitude, and love. Indeed dear ones, find and experience the wealth you already have and in so doing you stop worrying about money. You stop worrying about what you do not have and focus upon what you already do. And in this state of being, you cannot help but attract more for you have at long last, discovered, your abundant heart, and the richness of your own soul.
God bless you! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann
I will never forget how terrified I was years ago when, at the age of 33 my marriage was breaking up. I had married a wonderful man a year after college when neither of us had a clue who we were. We were both really good people just doing what we were "supposed" to do. We were both engineers, religious, and "dinky" - double income no kids yet. It wasn't until several years later that I began my spiritual explorations, felt my calling, and in short time became an alien to my very grounded and normal husband. We felt the gap between our goals and dreams widening, and yet we still cared so when we finally admitted we were going in different directions it was hard for both of us. We were scared. We felt like we failed. We bought a home divorce kit at B. Dalton's and sat at the kitchen table dividing our stuff up while crying with fear. Neither one of us wanted to hurt the other. There was no hatred here, just an acknowledgment that we loved each other and cared but we weren't in love at all. In fact when we were first married, I don't think either of us really knew what love was. It was a nice feeling, but you can't really love another until you know and love yourselves. We had grown. We both wanted more. The "more" just occurred on different pathways.
I thanked God that we could separate so kindly and yet at the same time, I was also terrified. I had just quit engineering and was beginning my career as an angel communicator by serving as "psychic in the window" of a local bookstore on two of the slowest days of the week. Although we divided our assets fairly, moving out of the home I had loved, decorated, and cared for was hard. Leaving my two dogs behind at the time was hard. I gave my husband the house because I knew it would make the transition easier on him and the dogs, and I knew I could manifest more. He gave me some savings to start my new life out. I moved out of a beautiful spacious home into a two bedroom apartment, cried my heart out, and started my new life.
"Ann," I'll never forget this message from the angels, "Everything you have ever created exists inside of you now. All you have to do is choose what you wish to bring to the surface once again. Enjoy your life. Embrace this new adventure. Be where you are and make the best of it, and watch what happens." I listened to their advice. I decorated my new apartment, embraced my new psychic career, began teaching classes, and slowly began to feel more abundant than I had in ages. This abundance didn't come from money at all. I had made a LOT more in engineering. I had a bigger home when I was married. I was able to do whatever I wanted then, and now I had to think about money, and yet I was FREE to be ME! I was enjoying my life. I was doing what I loved. I was getting up in the morning without the agony of trying to fit someone else's view of who I should be and without putting pressure on myself to do the same. Suddenly my small apartment felt liberating - there was less to care for. Suddenly my smaller salary didn't matter, because I was happy. Suddenly I realized that the angels were oh so right, abundance and money are two different discussions. And with this new found happiness, my career started to blossom.
And so even today, no matter how much or little I have in the bank I appreciate all the small things in my life. I give thanks for the flowers in my yard. I try to savor my breakfast while reading something inspiring in the mornings or simply sitting on the patio listening to the birds. It only takes ten minutes! And yet my soul is filled. I feel connected with animals, people, angels, God, and most importantly myself.
Feeling abundant doesn't take much more time, or more money - it does however take a little thought, a lot of self care, and sometimes a rearranging of priorities to make sure you are doing some of the things you love no matter how small the scale. Try it this week. Add a little more joy, a little more love, a little more meaning to the smallest aspects of your life and see how it makes you feel! Try connecting to the people around you a little deeper, even if only with a smile and a look into their eyes. The rewards will make you feel rich!
Love and hugs! Have a great week,
