My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Reveal yourselves to life dear ones. Allow people to see who you really are. So many spend so much time attempting to fit in, please others, and live up to such a huge variety of expectations that it is easy to lose oneself. It is easy to disconnect from your own hearts as the mind attempts to mold you. It is easy to try to "earn" love instead of simply being yourself and allowing those who love you to come forth. Dear ones, if you could be comfortable being your authentic selves, you could receive so much more assistance from life and your angels. You would receive the echo of the love that you give yourself from the world. If you are comfortable with yourself, you will attract others who are as well.
The authentic self is not something you "figure out" and then strive to "become." The authentic self is who you truly feel like being in any given moment. Some moments the authentic self is angry. Some moments you are bursting with love! In truth there is always a deeper, more loving self trying to emerge, but rather than trying to be what you are not yet... try to only be, in each moment, who and what you are... right here, right now.
What if you are not being your most loving self? Then dear ones, we would say, love yourself anyway. Allow yourself your feelings. If you need someone to talk to, talk to your angels. We may be invisible, but we hear you and love you no matter what is going on inside of you. You can always cry upon our shoulders, vent out your frustrations to us, and allow us to simply nurture you and send you love. If you could choose to love yourselves in this fashion, you would pass through "negative" emotions so much more quickly. You could avoid passing them on, taking them out on others, and instead you would find yourself feeling energized, more loved, and more loving.
If you cultivate the habit of coming to your angels, exactly as you are, without pretense, you will receive more love and assistance than you might ever imagine. We see who you really are. We love you. Can you love yourself no matter what? Try it, dear ones... it will bring you closer to heaven.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message From Ann
I have worked for years with the angels to learn to love and accept myself exactly as I am. That means I celebrate the times I am doing well and I have compassion for myself when I am not. I cry when I'm sad, and vent in private when upset... although after working with the angels for years, I find that love comes easier than upset and sadness passes quickly.
As they've worked with me to accept myself, both in my so-called positive and negative spaces, I've learned to love myself unconditionally... even on those days when I don't really like myself! As a result I've learned to love others too, even when I don't care for their behavior. I feel as if my heart has been freed from the bondage of our human conditioning that say we can love ourselves and others only when we "look right," "behave right," etc.
This level of self acceptance has created miracles in my life. It guided me to people with whom I love working. It has helped me open up to channel energy that does things for people that I could not have imagined. It has blessed me with people in my life that love and accept me for all of who I am.
Most recently it helped me film my next series! I had shingles two months ago, worked over time to make up for it, had to delay filming, went to a conference, came back and had four days to work, prepare 12 outfits, create the remaining episodes, and get on a plane to film all 12! I didn't have the episodes memorized and therefore took much more time between each to memorize them. I could have beaten myself up for getting off schedule, but instead if gave me opportunity to startgazing in public. I could have beaten myself up for not having been as prepared as I'd like, but it ended up that the filmers had time to accomplish other tasks. I could have picked on myself for having hair that to this day, frizzes the minute I get in font of the green screen! Instead we laughed. It has become a joke!
There will always be reasons to criticize ourselves. There will always be reasons to feel we have "fallen short" of where we'd want to be. There will always be a deeper and more loving self that we "could have been." However, if you can truly love and accept yourself, as you are, trusting that all is in divine perfection, you will grow so much more quickly into better and more beautiful spaces. You will accomplish more, waste less energy, and feel happier. You'llstop putting the pressure on others to love you more than you love yourself... and as a result you'll be able to accept them exactly as they are too.
So, as the angels say, if you are looking for love, start by giving it to yourself. Start treating yourself the way you'd like another to treat you. Start being compassionate to yourself when you're not at your best, and celebrate when you are. We can truly become the love of our own lives, and in that space, others and Life itself will echo so much more love back to you!
I love you all! Have a blessed week.
