My dear friends, we love you so very much.
There will always be reasons to avoid listening to your hearts while you are here upon the planet earth. It is incredibly human to make excuses about why you cannot take care of yourselves. There may not be enough money as you see it. Others may seem to need you so much you have no time for yourselves. However, when you spend your time, your money, and your energy fulfilling the dictates of your own heart, then you honor God. God is the one that inspires true desires. The loving presence of God rises up within you and wants you to live in truth. You were meant to feel healthy, happy, connected with the Presence of God's love within you and for you. Within this loving reality you will be guided to share that love with those around you, and you will know the true generosity of sharing from within a reality of feeling wonderful, loved, and abundant in every way.
So many of you struggle, thinking you must choose between your own well being or the well being of those around you. You feel you must take care of others and neglect yourselves. You feel you can't give enough to others while paying your own bills. And yet dear ones, nothing could be further from the truth! In the perfection of God's love there is enough time, money, and love for all. In the perfection of God's love, some are guided to give while others are guided to receive. In the perfection of God's love, all interactions are guided by none other than love.
If you are guided to care for someone and it is a joy, that guidance comes from God. When God wants you to care for another, you will have the heart for it, the strength, the resources, and the time. When your ego feels you must care for another out of "duty" or to feel like a good person, then watch out dear friends. You will harbor resentments, feel lack, and find there is no joy in such pretense. Far more important than what you do on this earth, is the authenticity and the love with which you do it.
Stop making excuses for avoiding self care. Stop making excuses for avoiding your dreams and the lives you wish to create. The world may not give you what you want. People may disappoint you, tug and pull at you, bully or manipulate you. You may not yet have the money and you may not think you have the time, but dear ones, this is your life. We want you to live the lives that God wants you to live. You must decide dear friends, if you will make God your God, or if you are going to make money, time, & others your God. Do not worship false idols dear friends. As you continue to trust in God's love and continue to live as you are guided, rather than how you feel you "should" live, your reality will change in glorious ways. Take charge of your existence dear ones... It is a gift more precious than you can imagine while you are here the Earth.
God bless you. We love you so very much.

Message From Ann
Giving has always come naturally to me but receiving has been a learned skill! Like many of us I grew up with the old adage, "Tis better to give than to receive." However the angels have taught me that this is ridiculous because for every giver, there must be a receiver to support their giving! We, as human beings, are meant to exhale AND inhale. Our hearts pump out and in! In truth, we were meant to allow the energy of God's love to flow into our lives, through them, and out to others. We were meant to live in a flow of Grace. There are times when our lives and hearts feel full and we are guided to give, and there are times when we are also guided to graciously receive.
Over the years, the angels have helped me remember that it is always fun, and sometimes very necessary to receive. Furthermore, sometimes it is necessary to ask for help, no matter how strong we may be. A few weeks ago when I messed up my health and simultaneously had a little kitchen fire, the guidance to ask for help was clear. As I've mentioned, I called friends who willingly ran errands for me. I called Cherie Landgraf whose amazing frequency machine cleared the smoke smell mostly out of my house and relaxed my body. James Walker did energy work on me, and Dr. Shawn Warwick untangled my twisted up solar plexus. I had to take money allocated for other things and spend it on my own healing. I had to cancel clients and take time to rest. For a few weeks there was hardly any energy going out of my life and a lot pouring in. It was all about receiving.
Miraculously, I healed from a very serious physical condition very quickly, so much so that I was ready to go hiking again only a few days after being able to eat solid foods once again. The desire to be out in nature was so strong in my heart that in spite of feeling a little weak, and in spite of the fact that the weather looked rainy, I decided to go anyway. My dear friend and dog sitter, Daniela Roth, was available and so I hit the road, rainy weather, fatigue, and all. I knew in my heart, this was where I was being guided.
I ended up hiking three miles in the sweet and gentle rain. The forest was perfumed with the vanilla-y smell of the ponderosa pines. The sound of the gentle rain dripping of rain from the trees was a meditation, and the gloriously feel of air below one hundred degrees rejuvenated me so much I was filled with energy by the end of my walk. Just as I'd seen in my vision that morning, the sun broke through the clouds and all of the sudden I felt inspired to take another hike - this one up Cathedral Rock in Sedona. It was sunny, hot, and strenuous but as I felt my heart and body expending energy, and felt the rush of air in and out of my lungs, my entire energy field finally burst open and once again I felt that flow of God's love running through my body, mind, and heart. I was overjoyed!
This entire experience has forced me to learn more about "Radical self love" before I teach the class. I have to love myself enough to reach out for help, put amazing food in my body, take the time in silence each day to connect with God and my angels. I have had to be honest with friends about what I honestly can and can't do for them right now. I've had to be more honest about how I want to spend my days and where I want to prioritize my time. As a result, I'm feeling amazing once again. I can't believe it was only a few weeks ago that a freaked out doctor wanted me to run to the emergency room! I'm glad I listened to my own guidance. I'm glad I've learned to receive. I'm glad I have learned to honor myself and love myself through anything, because these skills really work and can really get you back into the light no matter how deep and dark a space you find yourself in.
So this week if you find yourself having a challenge or two, love yourself through it. Pray for the help you need. Commit some time and energy to your own well being. You teach the universe how to treat you through your own choices. Why not make those choices more loving :)
Have a wonderful week!
