My dear friends, we love you so very much,
There is in your heart at all times, both desire and resistance to the very same. There is love and there is fear. It is your choice upon the earth to focus upon that which you love, and to use the power of your free will to overcome the fear and resistance to the very same.
For example, suppose God puts a desire for a vacation in your heart. You love the idea. You dream of taking time to relax at the mountains of the beach, but then in the very next breath the voices of doubt, fear, and resistance begin to negate your God give right to receive help and assistance from the heavens. "I have no time." "Everyone depends on me." "How on earth will I ever afford that?" Subtly, and no so subtly, the doubts negate the idea and the desire that God planted in your heart. It is here that you can exercise the power of your free will, and choose to align your mind with love, with a greater truth! "Dear God, you gave me the desire for this vacation. I trust in the right way and right time, you will provide the means, the pathway, and everything I need to enjoy it. Thank you God in advance for your abundance and grace." And then, dear ones, whenever the voices of doubt attempt to negate this desire, speak up! Speak truth. Align your hearts with love. If you cannot do so yourself, ask your angels for help.
For in truth, God wants to pour so much love, so much goodness, so much joy into your lives. Imagine someone you truly love... Do you not wish to give them all the joy they could possibly receive? Imagine dear ones a love so much greater that wants you to know It as well... for God wants you to know the love from which you are created and which continues to sustain you.
You have free will. You can open your hearts to love, align your minds with truth, or you can give in to the voices of fear, doubt, and resistance to love. Choose love dear ones. Speak up in the face of doubts and fears. There will always be voices, both inside and outside of yourself that want you to believe you must create and live your life alone. In truth you do not, you cannot, and you will not ever be without the love that wishes to reveal itself in so many beautiful ways in your hearts and lives. If you allow yourselves to be filled with this love, naturally you will radiate and share it with others.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message From Ann
I used to be a "do it yourself-er." I learned to pray for the big things in life, for the things that we learned were "holy," for family, friends, and everyone else. But when it comes to asking for things for myself, I had to learn to turn to God rather than trying to make my own dreams come true. One by one I learned to surrender to the higher power that loves us more than we can imagine.
The angels' message this week reminds me of a story from years ago. The first time I taught manifesting I decided I'd demonstrate the concepts to the class by creating a vacation where I'd learn something about shamanism - native spirituality. I had no idea how I'd afford it, where I would go, or even how I'd find such a thing! But it was in my heart for some strange reason, so I said, "Yes please God. Show me the way," and waited. Weeks passed and a beautiful vacation in South America led by a shaman I'd read about came to my attention. It looked perfect, and was affordable! I signed up. Within a few weeks, it was canceled. The voices of doubt began to rise from within. "Are you crazy? Maybe you're not supposed to do this. Where are you going to get the money for another trip? Do you even have a passport?"... and so on. I spoke faith. "No, God is going to show me the way. I'll get my passport. I just need to be patient." I waited.
Another trip came to my attention, this one to Peru. A shaman I had met at a conference years ago called to tell me he was taking a small group on a tour of the ancient mysterious spots in Peru and Bolivia. I wanted to go with everything in my heart. I told him I didn't know how I'd afford it but would get back to him if the way was revealed. The day I had to let him know I had the urge to go to the mail box. In it was a statement from some stock I had purchased years ago. The stock was worthless for years. This year it issued dividends - enough, exactly, for me to go to Peru!
And while vacations and stuff hardly seem like "holy" pursuits, according to the way I was raised, the angels point out lovingly that anything offers us a chance to grow in greater faith and greater love. So if you want something trust God. Speak words of faith in the love and goodness of the creator. Trust divine timing.
It is so easy to give up on our dreams, our hearts, and ourselves, simply because we don't see proof that what we desire is coming to fruition. But as the saying goes, "Faith is belief in things unseen." And as the angels remind us, it feels better to love! It feels better to expect good in your life! We don't because we fear disappointment, but if we don't have faith, we guarantee disappointment! Give love a try this week... this month... this year. Have faith in a God that is nothing less than a greater love than any of us can possibly imagine. Mm... truth feels good!
Love you all! Have a blessed week.
