Ask for Help

If a dream is placed in your heart, trust that in the right time and the right way everything will unfold in perfection. It is a human tendency to want to spring into action, and this is fine if your actions are passionate, inspired, and guided, but far too often you attempt to make things happen through the sheer force of your will. You actually can make things happen this way. You can work so hard you forget the joy in life. You can tempt someone to love you until they finally do. You can force yourself to lose weight without enjoying the journey. However, dear ones, these "victories" are short-lived for they cannot be sustained. If you lose the joy in life while attempting to "succeed" eventually you will burn out. If you tempt someone until they "fall" for you eventually you will realize that they only love you when you work to "earn" their affection. If you force yourself to lose weight without joy, eventually you will slip back into your old patterns and, most likely, feel great disappointment.

So while you can make things happen and live without heaven's help, a life lived in partnership with heaven is far more beautiful, graceful, and easy. You were assigned angels before birth for exactly this purpose. You were never meant to live without assistance. So when you find a dream in your heart, ask for help. When you ask God and your angels for help, you are asking Love itself to guide you. You are entering into a dance with Love. You are diving into streams of grace. In this dance you must often be patient. You certainly must trust. You will have to act when inspiration strikes or you will lose the opportunity in the moment. If you miss one opportunity another will always be presented. Love does not give up.

Dear ones, we implore you, "Ask for help." Trust that God loves you and wants to guide you in the most loving way (which is not necessarily the fastest) to experience the fulfillment of your heart's desires. As you learn to live in partnership with heaven, you will come to understand that you are None other than Love itself, asking Love to assist. The cells ask the body for nourishment, just as the body requests cooperation from the cells. And as you ask God and your angels for help, we too are nourished and gratified by the opportunity to love and assist you.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.
-- The Angels

Message from Ann

In the last 18 years I have learned to ask the angels for help with everything. When I feel rushed, I sit with them and ask for peace. When I have too much to do I ask for clarity, inspiration, and assistance in doing things efficiently. When I am tired I sit with them and ask for a refill. Unlike humans, they never tire of our requests. They have taught me that" Love loves to love." Who am I to get in the way?

Today I am enjoying an angel inspiration to grab my portable computer and do my office work at the local butterfly garden. There must be something going on with the timing. I kept trying to leave the house and I kept getting delayed. However, I am finally here, sitting here under a bamboo canopy, showered by mist with Costa Rican Blue Morpho butterflies skimming my head. Children are screaming and laughing with delight. Instead of thinking of the sounds as a distraction I revel in the energy of their joy.

As I write this a man passing by my spot accidentally steps on a butterfly who flew right under his foot. He feels terrible, so I offer a few words of comfort and ask the angels what to do. They tell me the butterfly is going to die so I offer a hand and the little one crawls on my palm for a final burst of love to help him release himself from the body. He passes quickly in the energy of my love. I then ask the angels to help the man who still feels very bad about this unfortunate accident. Another butterfly immediately lands on his shoe as if to say, "It is OK. God's creatures understand the cycles of life and death far better than you humans." The man gets the message.

I did not plan to write about this. I didn't even plan to leave my office today. But when I ask God and the angels for help in every aspect of my life, I enter into a Divine dance where I am blessed, even as I am able to assist others. And while my life is busy but peaceful at the moment, the angels have helped me in times when I had life threatening health conditions,when I was financially not sure how I would make it, and especially at times in the past when I was working through betrayals, disappointments, and abandonment. They've guided me to allow a broken heart to become a heart broke open wider. They've helped me see the root causes of my lack. They've taught me to live and let live, love and let love. They are there for you too.

So no matter how big or small the request, don't attempt to manage life on your own. Ask for help, and then when inspiring or joyful ideas arise, take action. I love living in a reality in which I exist in a cooperative dance with all of life. Best of all, it is there for all of us.
