Hi Dear Friends,
Today the angels talk about how we can handle the diversity of expressions on the earth this week, and I'll share a few perspectives on how to express our truest self. Let us all pray for peace this week.
Love you all!
Message from the Angels
My dear friends, we love you so very much,
You are living in exciting times upon your planet earth. Never before has the opportunity to explore other perspectives been so easy or so accessible. Never before have you been able to sample from the abundant diversity of life while sitting in your own homes. Never before have the contrasts been so vividly played out in the theater of human existence.
For some of you that is frightening. Most of you were raised to feel safe around sameness. Most of you were raised to feel right in worlds and with words that were passed down throughout generations. Many of you were raised to "keep the peace" by never disagreeing.
Now things are different. It seems that few are interested in "keeping the peace" as you once did. You're faced – in your media, your news, in your families, and on your streets – with people whose perspectives differ widely from the ones you may have been raised with. You are living in times when you're encouraged to own your truth, to speak up, to share your perspectives, and most importantly of all to seek understanding of perspectives different from your own.
As a result your world appears to be in chaos right now. There are so many perspectives! Some people present their ideas and beliefs with decency, kindness, and a respect for one another. Other people feel a need to bully, manipulate, shout, and push their perspectives upon one another. Whether in an evolved way or not, everybody's personal truth is coming to the surface.
You feel your own personal truths emerging from within. You feel the things you once tolerated but can no longer. You feel the thoughts you once pushed under the rug becoming important to you. You feel the emotions you've stuffed for decades. You see the possessions that no longer serve you and want the things you once refused to admit you wanted. It is no longer possible to avoid feeling your personal truths. The energy is just too strong.
The loving truth of each soul is rising up from within. Given an unblocked path it emerges in a loving desire to be more authentic. Given a blocked path from within, it finds unkind expression. Pray for the souls trying to express their truths in violence and anger. They are hurting and don't yet feel mature enough to share their perspectives with love. Pray for yourself to express your truth with love. In this fashion you become the light houses and beacons of hope and peace in a world where many do not yet know how to express themselves in a higher, happier, and more loving way.
This movement towards becoming more authentic – awkward, unpleasant, and scary as it might be at times – is a sign of spiritual evolution. One must go through the teenage years and find one's voice, however awkwardly, before one can reach maturity. No matter how old a person, many now are going through a phase wherein they find their truth, feel the discomfort of speaking up, and as a result, share their perspectives in an unloving way.
You need not fear. You need only stay in a vibration of love and you will be safe, secure, and protected, for in love all things are made right. In love you are guided. In love you can express your truth with only a desire to share ideas, to understand and to be understood. In love you can be you and allow others to be who they wish to be. In love you will attract light and repel the darkness of misunderstanding.
You are facing times of great growth here upon your earth. There is no need to despair. There is no need to fall into fear. It isn't the end of the world. It is, instead, a time of re birthing, a time when you stop sweeping issues that never worked to begin with, "under the rug," a time when humanity is crying for truth and integrity, freedom and justice, and all those qualities that a soul craves in their experience.
Be the ones who understand that self-expression is an expression of the True Self only when voiced with love. Be the ones who understand that truth and integrity begin within the self. Be the ones who know that the universe is completely just already, in that like vibration attracts like. Be the ones who know that you are, and always have been, free to emanate whatever energy you like.
Chaotic though it may be the players in the theater of human existence are just that. You are a beautiful being of light, as are they. You know this. Embrace this truth. You are loved. You are pure light. You are a tuner in a world of vibration and you can pick and choose the vibrations which you wish to tune into.
Dear ones, we are working with your earth very closely right now. There are countless beings of light sending love to each and every one of you. We don't judge any soul. We simply send our love, for that ultimately is the greatest expression of any being, whether on the earth or in the heavens. Receive our love daily and know you are all perfect and precious in our eyes. Do your best to realize that good will ultimately arise from the chaos. Be patient. Pray for all. You are all so very beautiful and so very loved.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann...
As a teenager, I didn't have a huge problem sharing my opinions. In fact I was so strong about it that at times that my mom got out the wash rag and ran around the kitchen chasing me as I ducked behind counters, while she attempted to give me a good whack for mouthing off! It was humorous even at the time and we often burst out laughing! I went with classmates in high school on marches where we actually got to talk to our senators and I, in all my teenage self-righteousness, asked questions they couldn't answer. "How can you feel integrity in voting for something that you just told me you don't believe in it?" I had an angry streak.
Over the years, I've realized, sometimes the hard way, that I can't assume my way is the "right" way for anyone other than myself. When I got frustrated with my ex-husband years ago because he got a cold and wouldn't let me heal him, he told me quite honestly, "Maybe I got sick because that's the only way I'd ever let myself rest." Wow. That was an eye opener. I still thought to myself, "I'd never do that!" then proceeded, over the years, to get sick to teach myself lessons!
I went to a psychic in my early twenties who told me I'd be working in the future, in a store with plants and crystals and I remember thinking humorously, "Yeah maybe I'll own a co-op!" Within the decade I had quite working as an engineering and was psychic in the window in a store with plants and crystals.
Moral of the story – life has taught me time and again that I don't know everything. I don't know who I'll be in the future. I'm blooming and I get to choose my path along the way. So do you. I don't know what's best for anyone else (unless I'm letting the angels come through me!) and its none of my business to educate anyone who hasn't asked. I know what resonates and what doesn't and I'll stick to that with no apology, but I cannot possibly expect others to feel as I do. If I've learned one thing that has completely changed my life, it is to discern rather than judge, and to live and let live.
So as you watch this wild year of varying opinions and perspectives unfold, do your best to simply be true to yourself, and to focus on things and people and situations that resonate with you. If the news excites you, watch it. If not, turn it off. If you love sitting and meditating do so. If you love being busy, go for it.
Be unapologetically true to you – your perfect, precious, unique self – and let others do the same. In a state of inner peace, the world's chaos cannot infiltrate your consciousness. In a state of loving self-acceptance, you can lovingly express your True loving Self, in even the simplest of your daily actions. This love, this peace, is ultimately the greatest vibrational gift you can share with humanity.
Here are a few pointers how to express yourself with love...
1. Express yourself through your Being rather than words
We are most effective in "getting others to understand us" when we walk the talk and live our truth. It is of no use to preach peace while angrily making someone else wrong. Far better to do what it takes to be at peace with yourself. Challenge yourself, every time you want to make someone wrong, to make yourself right... for you, according to your desired standards instead. As Gandhi so wisely said, "Be the change you wish to see in the world."
2. Express yourself through actions that are consistent with your ideals
If you want to be known as someone kind, be kind. If you want to be known as someone honest be honest with yourself. If you want to be known as someone sweet, be sweet, but most of all do these things while being authentic.
Sometimes you're not going to feel sweet. You can sweetly let people know you're upset, tired, or not able to help. You can honestly let people down with loving kindness. You can express even the tough stuff in a way that matches the ideals you wish to embody. Look for role models. Read articles Online by people you admire. Most powerfully of all, drop into your heart and ask yourself, "How would the ideal version of myself act?" Come from that place of inner guidance.
3. Express love every chance you get
Love is the highest expression of all. Wake up and thank your sheets. Appreciate your shower. Love your breakfast. Compliment people around you when they do something you admire. Thank your car for its service. An expression of love ripples good vibrations out into the cosmos.
This might be an "exciting" week as we watch the varying perspectives clash in the outer world. In our inner world, however, we get to define what kind of week we want to live, and for that matter, what kind of day we live, every day.
I wish you all peace, happiness, and of course authentic, loving expression.
Love you all!
