The Gift of Presence

My dear friends, we love you so very much.

In this season of celebrating the light coming into a darkened world, remember, you too are that light. You are truth, inspiration, and God's angels upon the earth. It is your kind smile that can turn the entire course of a stranger's day, or perhaps even their lives. It is your willingness to turn away from the unkindness of others, rather than feed it, that is a gift and a blessing to all involved. It is your willingness to acknowledge yourself as part of God's great love that allows you to shine that light into he world.

So while you are waiting in the holiday lines, take the time to smile at those around you. Call forth the light of God into your being and pray in silence to be a radiant blessing to those around you. When you are driving on the road, remember those are your fellow human beings driving with you. When you are running around with your family and friends, enjoying holiday events, remember, these are the ones you love. Enjoy the time. It is truly a gift, and remember as well to enjoy time with yourself and God each day, for this is a gift and blessing beyond compare.

You are the light in the darkness, dear ones. By all means, enjoy your holiday season. Enjoy the presents you give and receive. Remember, however, it is the gift of your Presence that is the simplest and most humble looking gift of all, and yet the most meaningful gift you can leave upon the earth.

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

Message From Ann

During the holidays I've acquired a nickname - "Annta Claus." It started several years ago and has since been a wonderful holiday joke. I like to give and I like to do whatever I can to help make dreams come true. Courtesy of the angels, however, I've learned that the greatest gift I can give is the gift of just being me.

And so, being the eternal child at heart, I started carrying candy canes around in my purse often during the holidays. They're simply, inexpensive goodies. I give them away randomly to strangers I talk with, store clerks, service people, friends, you name it. And you should see the smiles that accompany such a simple gift! We all want a little more sweetness, and a little treat doesn't hurt either :)

Even more importantly when I am out and about, and stuck in line somewhere, I do as the angels say. I open my heart and allow the energy to flow through me and out around me. I pray for everyone around to be blessed. It feels GREAT! Secret angels indeed!

And while it is fun to receive presents, I love seeing the Presence of another soul shining brightly. Nothing makes my heart sing more than seeing a friend or client doing something they love, in love with themselves and life, sharing their hearts and authentic selves with the world. I love that!

I imagine God is saying to each of us, "All I want for Christmas is You!

Love and holiday blessings!

Ann, Thank you for sharing the wonderful advice! Radiating love and positive energy to others, especially during the hectic times is such a wonderful experience. Although we don't always see the total impact, it leaves you feeling that maybe you made someone's day a little better and opened up a part of them that they haven't felt in a while. Sometimes you do receive a smile back and you know you've made a difference. You can touch a lot of people in a crowd without saying a word! Peace and love to you my friend!
