Happy Halloween to those who celebrate! Today the angels talk about how we can treat all our fears as we do on Halloween, by seeing them as things that aren't so spooky after all. They talk about how, when we plug into Love's endless supply, we need not fear what we call "evil." I'll share some stories about how I plug in even when the world isn't making it easy.
Have a blessed & beautiful week :)
Message from the Angels
My dear friends, we love you so very much,
As many of you celebrate your holiday of Halloween, we love the fact that you are taking things that might otherwise be considered "frightening" and instead "lightening" them up! From our view of reality you have nothing to fear at all because you are, and always will be, in control of your own vibration, and therefore in control of your experience of reality. Love wants to flow, and as we expressed last week, you either allow it or pinch off its supply.
For example, there are indeed ghosts who are souls that don't believe that love is real – even when the light appears for them. They stay in a vibration in between heaven and earth, often harmlessly wandering about, but sometimes rather angrily. You wouldn't fear an angry, tantrum-throwing two-year-old, dear ones, and you need not fear anyone – living or deceased – who is living in an unpleasant and pinched-off version of their own reality.
What if, instead of being afraid, you were like a parent looking at their adorable two-year-old who is, in a given moment, unhappy and screaming. Like that parent, you might feel some irritation, but you would also feel compassion for those in your world – living or dead – who are angry and scared as well. What if you could see the innocent child within them, and pray that they feel safe and secure in God's love?
What if, instead of fearing your ghosts – living, dead, or even the ghosts of your own past – you were to pray for them to know only love?
Then dear ones, those "scary" beings and things on your planet would be only as powerful as your cute little Halloween ghosts whom you don't take very seriously at all.
If you were to remove the power you give your problems, you would unblock the flow of love waiting to help you solve them.
Right now you could say that there is a tug of war between love and what you call "evil" on your planet. Evil, dear ones, is simply "LlVE" in reverse. Evil is that which doesn't realize that it is connected to an endless stream of LOVE that helps it LIVE. As a result, it attempts to go about life backward, grabbing resources, money, power, and energy from others, because it has pinched off its own supply chain to Love's endless flow.
You need not fear evil. You need not give it any more power than your Halloween figures! You need not even focus upon it. In fact, the less energy you give that which you call evil, the more energy you are giving Love. In a vibration of love dear friends, "though you walk in the shadow of the valley of darkness you will fear no evil."
In the greater understanding of reality, there is nothing but love. Your experience of this greater reality depends on you. You either let love flow into your life or you block Love's endless supply.
There are those who let love flow into their lives as much as possible by focusing on kind, loving, soothing, comforting, inspiring thoughts, and actions. There are those who pinch off their experience of Love's supply by focusing on anger, fear, sadness, and other unpleasant feelings or situations. Most of you go back and forth between the two... and that is OK! You are learning to unblock your supply as you move through life.
You are learning to reach for thoughts that feel good and focus on things and situations that feel good. You are learning to find good feelings even when the external world doesn't make it easy. When you feel good your supply chain from Love's source is unblocked and flowing easily. When you feel bad, to some degree, you're pinching off the endless flow of love. Your feelings are your guide.
Dear ones, your connection to the endless supply of love grants you freedom from the influences of what you call evil - freedom from the influences of those who operate from an experience of pinching off their own supply. Your connection to the endless supply of love grants you immunity, abundance, joy, grace, and ease.
There is nothing more important in your lives right now than your connection to the endless supply of love from the Source. If you have a problem, stop spinning within it. Sit. Breathe. Receive our love. Focus on how the solution would feel. Have faith dear ones! You are loved! The supply is there. Unblock it by focusing on the good that is waiting to flow to you. Allow for it. Stop getting in God's way, as we like to say.
If someone has triggered painful feelings within you, although it is difficult, try not to use their behavior as an excuse to disconnect yourself from the endless supply of love. When others are unloving it is even more important for YOU to connect with love. Don't wait for the world to make it easy. Don't wait for others to behave as you wish. Don't wait for things to look exactly as you want. Open now, dear ones to the supply of Love that is here for you always – right here, right now.
The moment you appreciate a single ray of sunshine you are open to love. The moment you value the feeling of the floor supporting your feet, your open to love. The moment you think of someone you care about you are open to love. The moment you have a good wish for someone who is challenging, you are open to love. The moment you dream of a better world, you are open to love. You don't need to look for the "monumental" experiences of love. Choose the small ones, one after the next, and soon dear ones, you will live in the endless supply of love. In this reality, all that you find spooky and scary will be seen much like your little Halloween ghosts, as nothing to fear at all. In this reality, evil cannot touch you because you are focused only on the Love beneath it all.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann...
Happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate! I love the playfulness, creative vibe, and generosity of the season. No matter what is going on, on this earth, the holidays give us pause to celebrate all that is beautiful in life.
In my younger days, we trick-or-treated in a large pack of kids, going from door to door for hours, filling our pillowcases with candy. It's a wonder I still have teeth after all that sugar, but oh it was fun! While the world has changed, I still love giving out treats and baking pumpkin muffins for those that support me all year long. I just dropped off a batch to the postal folks and enjoyed a few minutes of delicious shared joy.
I no longer wait for life to "make me happy." I choose to focus on things that do make me happy no matter what is thrown my way. When people are unkind, I'm kinder to myself. When I've had injuries I find things I can do rather than focusing on what I can't. When the world is nuts, I choose to spread more kindness. It makes me feel good to do so. It would be oh so easy to "go down with the ship" as the saying goes in our world today. The news makes it look like we're going to "hell in a handbasket," but that is only one tiny window into a much larger reality.
Every day I see brave souls reaching beyond the veil to connect with dear ones who have died, striving with all their hearts and souls to let heaven's love flow into their lives. It isn't easy. They are human, grieving, and hurting from the human loss, and yet living in a greater truth in which there is no death of the soul and no disconnection. I am humbled before these individuals. They have the courage to unblock love's flow.
Years ago I worked with an incredible woman who went through the unthinkable. She lost her mother. Her daughter was murdered. Her husband left her. All of this occurred in less than two years, but this dear, amazing, resilient soul, never stopped reaching for the light. We worked to connect her with her loved ones in spirit and her willingness to believe in their presence and their love, opened her to incredible experiences. She felt their love. She believed in their love. She even saw energy at times. In her regular life, she attracted a few men to date who helped her "put her feet back in the water" so to speak, and after three fun but temporary relationships, she met a man who, decades later, is still the love of her life. She will always live in my heart as an example of someone who, in some of the most impossible circumstances, believed in love, opened to its flow, and allowed it to transform her life for the better.
Right now we're being bombarded with a diversity of energies. We feel it in our bodies. Mother earth is shifting and venting and blowing volcanoes in many locations and we feel the tension and release in our own bodies. There are people striving for greater love and people trying so hard to keep us in fear. There are those celebrating freedom and those trying to restrict it. It doesn't matter! Love is still there, available to us all. Freedom is still ours if we align with love's flow. Even those who are quitting jobs because they don't want vaccines are finding new and better ones when they align with love. We have the freedom to unblock access to the Source and supply of all good or to pinch it off.
I am always in awe of how there are so many realities going on in one world, all at the same time. When I'm in a high vibe I go to the grocery store and have delightful conversations with people of all beliefs, races, ages, and genders. When I occasionally get down or tired, I run into all the sad, angry people.
Last week I was deep in the forest, hiking in the cold creek in the early morning hours. While I wear insulated pants and shoes, I used to be terrified of cold water. A few years ago I confronted that fear head-on, learned the Wim Hof Method, and got over it. Now ice water feels like love. There's something amazing about feeling the peace of a warm soul in the midst of external forces.
Standing there, in a thigh-high pool of chilly water, serenaded by the trickle of water flowing bubbling over the rocks, the wind in the trees, and the morning bird symphony. I felt like I was standing in heaven. Fall colors dotted the cliffs around me and the Presence of the Love that lives in all things was a vibrating, pulsating, palpable energy.
I melted into it all – no separation between little "self" and big "Self." Needless to say, this feeling inside of me carried me right into encounters with delightful souls, great food, freshly pressed, home-grown apple cider, and even a deep peace as I sat in a serious traffic jam on the way home. I trust Life's timing. I ended up next to a cute red truck that looked like it drove straight out of a Hallmark Christmas special. The license plate read PHXSNTA. I laughed! I had just been thinking about presents for my dear ones. Love pays attention to the details. Love wants to delight.
Even though things are a bit nuts in many ways on this planet, there is SO much good and infinite Loving God available at all times. Love is there no matter what is right in front of our vision, waiting patiently beneath the surface for us to focus on it, believe in it, and allow ourselves to feel it pouring into our lives.
Here are a few pointers on how to keep open to love's flow, even when things seem scary
1. Get back in the present
Fear can only grip us when we focus on what might happen in the future. Right here, right now, we can and will handle anything in front of us. Right here, right now you're sitting somewhere reading a newsletter. Right here, right now what could happen, might happen, what you don't want to happen, is not happening.
Find something to appreciate and enjoy in this moment. Focus on it. You can take your attention away from scary things and focus on what is good here and now.
The more you can look around and tell yourself, "There is a lot of beauty, goodness, and kindness here in the world right now," the less fear can manipulate and control you.
2. Imagine the best
When you catch yourself imagining the worst – whether it is the worst possible outcome, the worst about someone else, the worst about yourself – stop. Catch yourself and say to yourself, "This doesn't feel good!" The imagine the best. Make it up. See how that feels. Your feelings are the indicator as to whether or not you are open to love's endless supply or pinching it off. Choose thoughts that feel better.
For example, I have a friend in a really tough situation right now. This friend can't hear much that I say to encourage. So instead of fearing the worst, I've made up a glorious story about how God might work in their life to help them out of the problem. I focus on it daily. Love is unblocked in my heart and life, and even though they aren't open to it in great measure, perhaps my strong loving flow will find a way in – because even in spite of doubts, this person does want to feel God's love.
Likewise, when I go on a trip, I program the energy in advance. I imagine the best possible situation. Years ago when my parents wanted a family vacation to celebrate their 70th birthdays at Disney world (in the middle of hurricane season!) I imagined the weather being perfect. I imagined a wonderful time and magical, loving experiences. Four hurricanes missed us! One finished the day we arrived. One arrived the day after we left. Another went south, and a fourth went north! We enjoyed Disney World in the sunshine.
When I get up in the morning with an "impossible" to-do list, a full in-box, and commitments I'm not sure how I'm going to meet, I imagine the best. I imagine grace, flow, ease, and feeling wonderful at the end of the day. I open to love's supply and when I do this, the days flow like magic.
We can slowly but surely shift our habitual focus on imagining the worst and instead train ourselves to imagine (and therefore allow) the best.
3. Soothe yourself when you're afraid
Sometimes fear is gripping. The bad thoughts won't go away. The body tenses up and gets cold. We shiver and shake. When this happens, the best thing to do is wrap a blanket around yourself and invite the angels into it to give you a big warm, fuzzy, hug from spirit. Make a cup of tea, cocoa, or coffee, or your favorite soothing beverage. Have a good meal. Read something inspiring or distracting. Talk a walk or a nap. Watch happy videos.
Soothe yourself with kindness when you are afraid. There's no point in beating yourself up if you already feel bad. Be kind to yourself as you would to a scared child.
This week, don't trick yourself into believing the darkness has any power over you at all. Instead treat yourself to something sweet, kind, and beautiful... and celebrate that there is always love waiting to come into our lives. May all your frights turn to light... and beyond that delight!
Have a blessed & beautiful week :)
