My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Be very gentle with yourselves. Many energies are vying for your attention right now. What you focus on, whether positively or negatively, you empower. You cannot easily stay tuned to a radio station you hate while listening to the one you love. You cannot stay tuned to a radio station you love if you focus on the one you dislike.
So, dear ones, care about how you feel. Care about how you focus. Care about yourself and your own heart so thoroughly you refuse to give in to the hatred, fear, and anger that is being stirred up upon your planet at this time. Refuse to empower the denser vibrations with your focus on them. You know they exist. You witness them on your news or in your conversations with others. Some of you witness these energies as bombs dropping from the sky or fortunes temporarily lost. You know these vibrations exist. Now turn your sights to something better.
Turn your sights towards the good in your own lives and the good in the hearts of your fellow human beings. What can you find joy in, at this moment? What can you appreciate at this moment? Instead of focusing on the atrocities being committed by the lost, pray for the light within them to arise so they may awaken to their true nature. Instead of condemning those who are not living in love, turn your sights towards the countless human beings who are living in, and laboring in love. Instead of criticizing and waging war within yourself, focus on all that is good, beautiful, and light-filled within you. Instead of fearing your bodily conditions, focus on the life, the health, and the vitality you wish to enjoy. Dear ones, the world benefits when you focus on the good, for when you focus on the good you feel good. When you feel good, you feel God. When you feel God, you allow God's love to flow naturally to you, through you, and out into your world.
Can you imagine what a kinder and more stable world would feel like? Can you imagine waking up feeling peaceful, secure, and happy? If you already do, celebrate! If you don't, imagine it. Find the feeling of it. Let yourself feel good and you will be allowing yourself to feel God.
It is not insensitive to turn your sights towards the higher, happier vibrations. It allows you to be a greater contribution – both practically and vibrationally. When you are up you have love to spare and share. When you are down, you want energy from others. When you are appreciative you contribute to the vibration of abundance. When you complain you empower the vibration of lack.
Sometimes you need a loving ear and some help to process your denser emotions. It is OK to share your heart and your denser feelings with others or your angels. Don't pretend that you feel good if you do not. We are not asking you to live in denial of your feelings. We are asking you to slowly move them towards a more loving reality, and we are always there, ready to help you and love you without condition. Talk to us when you are afraid or angry. Give us your denser energy. Sit, breathe, and ask us to help you move into a more loving state. We know that you are doing your best. We love you. We want to help you find a higher and happier focus. Reach for the next best feeling thought, and then the next. Sit and receive our love. Help is always available when you truly desire to be in a more loving space. Even the act of asking for help is a movement towards love.
You are witnessing a global drama right now – one that goes on in so many ways every day, all over the world – in relationships, homes, businesses, and even in individual human hearts. A person feels insecure and tries to control others and the external world. No amount of control can assuage fear. Instead, with every empty, unloving victory – whether it be conquering a nation, winning an angry argument, manipulating someone into complying with you, or even bullying yourself into doing something that your heart is not at all aligned with – one is driven farther and farther away from the experience of love.
Instead, stop trying to force the world and others to help you feel secure and loved, and instead seek love where it can truly be found – by placing your focus upon it. Seek it in moments of appreciating what is good in your lives right here and now. Seek love in the silence of acknowledging all that is good in yourself or another person. Seek love by going within and breathing until you feel the peace of God that flows into you freely when not obstructed by lesser thoughts. Seek love, dear ones, in a dance with all that is good and beautiful in life. This is your Source of abundance and vitality. This is your security. This is the power that gives life to all creation. Focus on anything that feels a little closer to love and you are opening the valves of your spiritual heart to the power that gives you life.
Instead of focusing on the horrors of war, focus on the outpouring of love and kindness. Instead of focusing on those whose politics you disagree with, focus on the principles you love and wish to empower. Instead of focusing on the seemingly endless stream of virus variants, focus on the myriad ways in which you can support your own health and happiness. Instead of focusing on freedoms temporarily lost, focus on the areas in which you are free.
Dear ones, we are not asking you to "stick your heads in the sand" and pretend that there are no problems in the world. We are, however, asking you not to "stick your head in the mud" and stay there. We are asking you to acknowledge what you see and then turn your focus – your precious life energy – and your love towards what you wish to empower in your life and in your world.
Love feels better dear ones. Care about how you feel. As you reach for that which feels good, you reach to feel God, know God, and flow God's love into your life and your world.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann...
Like many of you, I am a deep empath. I can easily feel the world in my body, and sense the vibrations of others. I have to work diligently to keep my focus on love and good feelings, while witnessing daily the pain, fear, and sadness in the world, in my clients, and my in-box. If I had not learned to care about how I feel and how I focus, I'd have burnt out years ago. At times I do forget, for a while, and then my body or my life quickly reminds me.
As a musician must practice their craft, or an artist must make time for their muse, I must make time in my life to constantly recalibrate myself to love. The more I practice, the easier it has become, but it is an ongoing discipline, not some perfect state I've reached and stay in all the time. I talk to so many dear souls who are so hard on themselves when they slip out of love, yet we all do, often many times a day! The goal isn't about learning to be perfect all the time. The real trick is learning how to recalibrate ourselves to love quickly and easily so we can "get back in the vibrational saddle" and get back to creating the lives and world we love.
The angels have taught me to prioritize feeling good. I take time every day to do something that refills my soul. I take time in silence in the morning before work whether quieting the mind in meditation, reading a short uplifting passage from one of my favorite books, or watching the birds. I take time every night before bed, no matter how late, to do something uplifting for my soul like watching a YouTube video to learn some new creative skill, using my Muse meditation headband to see how many birds I can get (birds chirp sweetly on the app when you go into deep meditation!), or even just sitting on the patio in the dark enjoying a peaceful silence. Some nights I revel in a good cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows, and on others, I challenge myself to sit and list all there is to appreciate about the day. I take time morning and night if only a few minutes to recalibrate to love.
I've also cultivated a habit of looking for the good and turning towards what feels like love. I appreciate my clients reaching for love. I appreciate the angels. I appreciate my meals, my kitchen, and the sunflowers that re-seeded themselves and are blooming like crazy this year. I appreciate my friends and think often with a grateful heart about those I love. When someone is cruel or unkind it doesn't feel good to get angry in return. Instead, I pray for them and then immediately turn my focus to those who are loving and kind in my life. When someone disappoints me, it doesn't feel good to wallow in my disappointment. Instead, the angels have taught me to hug and comfort myself, to let it go, and to do something kind for myself. When I see horrors and atrocities in the world. I quiet my mind, tune into God and ask this Presence of love to wash through me to all who are hurtful and hurting and to let me know if I can do anything else. When I mess up my body and I'm in pain, I take time to remember feeling good and follow the inspirations to fix myself.
I calibrate towards love whenever and wherever I can. Last weekend on Mother's day, I was thinking about how much my mom and I have grown into a beautiful, deep, loving relationship and was inspired suddenly to call at exactly the time when she and my Dad were at a celebration lunch thousands of miles away. I felt like I was with them.
I hung up and missed them. That didn't feel good so I recalibrated to love. I decided to celebrate Mother's day with my garden. I gave all my little plants their favorite cocktails. Some got a solution of eggshells soaked in vinegar overnight and mixed with water (equal parts eggshell to vinegar, soak overnight, and then use 4T of this in a gallon of water - google "plants that like eggshells"). Others got a cocktail of Epsom salts (1 T to a gallon of water). I suddenly was inspired to take a Starbucks break... just in time (of course!) for them to put out their "grounds for the garden! Back home, I went, coffee and grounds in hand to give my hibiscus, potatoes, and cucumbers their favorite snack - coffee grounds! Talk about shared joy!
I am all too aware of the atrocities in the world. I am aware of the rapes, murders, hatred, possession, and a myriad of other horrid things going on. I am aware of the greed, manipulation, and forces that are unseen but nonetheless real. These things exist. I ask God to tell me what I can do about them and when, and when inspired I act, donate, pray, meditate, hold a soul in an embrace of love, call a friend, write a client, or do whatever is guided.
Meanwhile, my only job – and yours – is to make sure we're not at war by battling ourselves, life, or others, and to exist in a space of love as often as we can, recalibrating often when necessary and remembering that to feel good is to feel God.
Here are a few tips to help you recalibrate to feeling good & feeling God...
1. God doesn't keep score
There is a tendency among many of us who try to exist in love, to beat ourselves up when we slip out of it, and as a result to disallow ourselves from feeling good immediately! There's a mistaken notion that we need to punish ourselves for our so-called mistakes so we won't make new ones.
That's nonsense. It doesn't work... and God doesn't keep score.
The minute you get your mind out of the muck and focus on something that feels better, you deserve to feel better. You chose it. You are allowed to feel good if you suddenly shift to compassion even after you were feeling nasty and judgmental a few seconds ago. Focus forward, not backward. Focus on the fact that you recalibrated to love and love feels good.
There is never a need to withhold good feelings from yourself. Just do your best to choose them, then enjoy them. God doesn't keep score. God just welcomes you home to love.
2. Remind yourself often, "I care about how I feel, therefore I must care about how I focus."
When you don't feel so great, you're focusing on something that doesn't feel good. Sounds easy but we often blame the world, our bodies, someone else, etc. The bottom line is that we are not focusing on something that feels good.
Someone could be terrible to us but if we have compassion for their disconnection, we'll feel good. We could see the most horrific news and focus on it and feel terrible or we could stop, pray for all involved and look for examples of people who are caring and kind.
Our body might be in pain but we can focus on the pain or use our willpower to focus on something better (been there, in serious pain, and it works!).
We might be completely unable to shift our focus on our own, but we can turn our focus on some good music, breathe, and ask the angels for help. Even asking for help is a positive shift in focus and feels better than telling ourselves we can't feel good.
We get to choose. If you care about how you feel, you must care about how you focus.
3. Care less about the topic and more about the feeling of Love
When you love or appreciate anything or anyone, you are calibrating to love. I can appreciate my hot cocoa or aim love at a lost soul and it is the same vibration of love that I'm tuned to regardless of who or what inspired it.
It helps to have a large list of things that you appreciate, shows, books, music, or quotes that uplift you, and disciplines that you know will work for you. It is useful to have some go-to meals or activities that feel good. Collect a repertoire of things, thoughts, people, or practices that help you recalibrate to love. It doesn't matter so much what helps you calibrate to love. It matters that you choose something that does.
Love is love no matter what focus you adopt to feel it. Care more about the feelings and less about the topics that inspire them.
It is sometimes hard to permit ourselves to feel good in a world where many are not. However, if we want to be the change, this calibration to love is our soul's most important work in a given lifetime. Focus on good, feel good, and as the angels say, "Then you'll feel God." Let's all give ourselves permission to feel good, feel God, and become open channels through which love can pour into the world and of course, into our own lives more strongly.
Have a beautiful week :)
