Hi Dear Friends!
As the year comes to an end, let us look back with gratitude and love rather than regret or remorse. The angels and I share a perspective on this year which was truly challenging and yet ripe for love emerging.
Love you all! Happy New Year!
Message from the Angels
My dear friends, we love you so very much,
As your year draws to a close, rather than breathing a collective sigh of relief and saying, "Whew, thank goodness that's over," take time to focus on your lives with gratitude and love. The soul knows that no matter how challenging, or how easy, every precious moment of life upon your planet earth is a gift. As the decade turns dear ones, use this as an opportunity to give thanks for your life, your blessings, and most of all for yourself.
You had great courage to incarnate upon the planet earth in these tumultuous and incredible times! You have courage every morning when you choose to reawaken from the heavens and dive back into your earthly dream. You have courage to be the bearers of Truth – that love is a greater force than hatred, that kindness is noble, and that to seek understanding is a higher form of power than trying "be right."
It was not an easy year for many of you. Your dear Mother Earth went deep within to nurture herself, which left many of you processing emotions you were previous unaware existed within you. Your political and social climates were extremely divisive. There seemed to be a mass exodus as many souls left the planet abruptly and without warning.
Many of you have asked us here in the heavens, "What is the world coming to?" There is only one answer dear ones... Love.
Your world is attempting to grow into love.
You are the lightworkers. You are the torch-bearers of this love! You are the ones crying for unity amidst the diversity. You are the ones praying for and attempting to love the light within even those whose personalities you can't stand. You are the ones strengthening our mother earth.
No matter how much or how little you feel you have accomplished this year; no matter how many resolutions you've kept, or not... you are the ones with the courage to bring love to the surface here upon your earth.
You are the ones with the courage to live more consciously each and every day, and when you fall into old fears, old angers, old upsets of doubts, you have the inner fortitude to seek your connection to the angels and the Divine once again for your strength.
Each of you, in your essence is nothing less than the Love that lives within all things and all beings. Each of you is here to find that, feel it, share it, and above all... be it.
The resolutions you make are beautiful. Your goals are acts of self-love. However, if you make only one resolution, and have only one goal this coming year – indeed for the rest of your lifetime – make it a simple one:
"In everything I think; in everything I do; in every word I speak, I will attempt to bring more love to the surface. "
"Most of all, this year and always, I will attempt to love myself. I will attempt to speak to myself kindly. I will attempt to honor my feelings. I will attempt to be authentic. I will move towards that which gives me joy and "turn the other cheek" away from that which gives me pain. I will dignify the light within myself and others and refuse to dignify the darkness no matter how it presents itself. I will choose love."
This dear ones is the resolution of your soul, not only as a new year and the new decade begin, but with every single breath you take upon your planet earth.
We love you. We honor you. We bear witness to your light as it continues to emerge and strengthen in a world in need. Be kind to yourselves this coming year. Honor the light within. Act as if you knew God itself were having the experience of your life, for indeed the Divine does live within, and experience, each and every one of you.
Happy New Year, dear friends. May the light of love continue to expand within your experience of life on earth, and may you learn to see beyond illusions and witness only this Love.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
-- The Angels
Message from Ann...
Happy New Year! As the decade draws to a close I am pulling within for the break, going into the silence, taking time to unplug from the world, and plug back into my essential self.
Every holiday I take inventory. I look back at the year and congratulate myself for all I've accomplished. The angels taught me never to look back with regret, reproach, or remorse but only with gratitude, love, and celebration.
It was an intense and packed year for so many of us. I ignored the world's arguments and focused on trying to be a greater light for others and for myself.
I took a year off from conferences and dove deeper within. I got to experience new technologies for measuring brain waves in meditation. I faced old fears and learned greater "mind over matter" as I learned to relax in the ice water. I began to learn a few chords on guitar. I learned powerful breathing techniques. I hiked hip deep in emerald pools and climbed mountains. I broke a toe and used energy to avoid the pain of the experience and, in the process of healing learned about exciting modalities that assist.
I gazed into the eyes of so many dear souls, corresponded with thousands in need, reached new levels of love and joy with my dear family. I bruised and healed a rib, learned how to make new gluten free treats, hosted friends, and surrendered into deeper and more expanded states of consciousness than ever before.
I learned to love even more deeply – even those who were unloving towards me – and I learned stronger boundaries in dimensions where I previously wasn't even aware they were needed. I listened to hundreds complain about politics and remained steadfast in the truth that God is still God and light is still trying to emerge within us all.
In spite of a gazillion challenges – healthwise, personal, and financial – it was a very good year.
So, this year, as we move into 2020 let us all look back upon the year, not with regret, reproach, or remorse, but instead with gratitude, love, and celebration!
What better way can we ring in the new year, than by setting the tone for it, with love!
Here are some pointers to take inventory of the year, kindly, and with love.
1. Congratulate yourself for your accomplishments
Make a stream-of-consciousness list of every loving thing you can recall that you said, did, or thought. Include all things great and small... "I learned to cook fish to perfection! I smiled at people who looked sad. I was kind to my dog. I had patience with my kids. I prayed for the earth. I painted my living room. I got a new pillow. I got a new job. I left a painful relationship. I started a good one. I prayed for someone I didn't like..."
These are only examples. Anything and everything counts. Celebrate all acts of love and accomplishment. You will be surprised at how long the list can be if you are honest with yourself. Resist the urge to negate any of it. Celebrate yourself!
Remember... the scale of an act matters less than the love with which we accomplish it.
2. Congratulate yourself for your perceived "failures"
There are many things we'd do better if we knew better!
Look back at the things you don't think you did so well and celebrate the fact that you now know better! Take time to think how you'd handle a few of these circumstances differently should they arise in a different form.
Congratulate yourself for learning and growing.
3. Create your "Inventory for 2020"
What do you desire this coming year? Can you imagine having all those dreams come true? What would it feel like? What would life look like? How would you have to change. Who would you BE right now if your dreams were already here? How would you act? How would you treat yourself? How would you treat others? How can you become that even before the dreams arrive?
At year's end, I wish you all the joy of acknowledging your efforts to bring more love into your life and into this world, the peace of knowing you are growing, and above all a greater sense of the Magnificent Presence of Love that lives within us all!
Happy New Year,
I love you all,
