Message From The Angels: No Pressure
Category: Ann & The Angels Written by Ann Albers
My dear friends, we love you so very much,
While we always advocate reaching for the best feeling you can find and being as positive as you can be, we understand that there are times when you just can't find a positive thought. Sometimes you stumble into a well-practiced, deeply conditioned set of beliefs. Instead of possessing your own mind, you feel possessed by it. Take heart. There is a way out of those mental "spin-cycles."
Start by being kind to yourself. Give yourself a hug. Talk sweetly to yourself. In our unconditional love, we would say to you at these times, "It's OK that you're angry. We love you. God loves you." "It's OK that you're in deep grief. You love so much and want something so deeply. You'll get there. You'll learn to feel that connection with your loved one in time. Be easy on yourself." "It's OK that you're jealous. You just want more and don't understand you can have it yet."
Dear ones, learn to soothe and accept yourself with unconditional love and kindness at those times when you just can't find a way out of your own feelings. Self-acceptance is the way out. Love yourself where you are. Choose, choose to soothe yourself, and talk sweetly to yourself. Choose to give yourself a hug. Choose to wrap a blanket around you and take a nap. Choose to distract yourself with something healthy and kind. Then, as you begin to feel just a little better, or a little more neutral, reach for a slightly better thought, a slightly better feeling, and then again.
It won't take long to spin upwards into a better vibration and even if you fall right back into those old feelings again, simply repeat the process again and again and again. In time new habits, new conditioning, and a new awareness that you need not stay stuck in bad feelings due to external circumstances will help you reach those better-feeling spaces more easily.
You are never being "tested" or "judged" by God or any of us in the heavens. You are being loved... always, forever, unconditionally, and without exception. Your loved ones in heaven know the challenge of being human and feel, therefore, understand you profoundly. The angels and the Divine see the purity of your soul, your courage for being on earth, and all the love you are reaching for. We feel you, and we love you.
All we teach and share is to support your joy, your happiness, your harmony, and your abundance. All we share is to help you find the space to receive what your heart desires. We are not trying to get you to measure up to any external standard, although so many of you have learned and integrated the notion that you must. In our eyes, you already "measure up." We are not trying to keep you "out of trouble" with the Divine. The Divine is love beyond your imagination and sees you as nothing less. Instead, we live in this love. We want you to experience, enjoy, and share the truth of your beautiful soul while upon the earth. We want to help you learn to focus the energy that creates worlds and to allow your dreams to flow to you in grace.
Once you taste the beauty and grace of choosing love, there is no other option that satisfies.
This is why you feel good or bad. When you are vibrating at the frequency of love – which is your very essence, your most profound, and authentic nature – you feel good. When you don't, to varying degrees, you feel don't feel so good.
It is easy to blame the world of others for bad feelings. People do things that are so unthinkable they don't deserve your focus. When you – either purposefully or accidentally – focus on unloving acts, it doesn't feel good to you. It becomes your challenge to shift to a more loving focus. "Turning the other cheek," as Jesus meant it, was not about turning the other cheek to be slapped again but rather about turning away. Turn away from the unloving behaviors. Turn away from the unloving words. Turn away from the problems, dear ones, and turn your heart towards love. Turn towards solutions. Turn towards the good in life. Of course, you cannot ignore the problems and challenges in front of you, but you did not come to remain focused on them. You knew you'd see them, desire better, and then use your will to focus on better as soon as possible because this is how you create a better world.
You see wars, and you want peace. Focus on peace, love, prayer, and joy in your own hearts and homes. Focus on the good people who are making love, not war – through their kindness, their prayers, their acts of charity and mercy, and their kindness to the children and elders. Focus on moments of pure, unadulterated, peaceful appreciation for anyone or anything. Then you will end the war between your mind and your soul, for your soul sees only love emerging. You will feel good when you look for love where love is easier to see. When you learn to see love anywhere, you'll feel magnificent and free.
You see disease, and you want health. Focus on the feeling of vitality, what you look forward to doing when you feel better, and when the world feels better. Focus on the never-ending stream of well-being flowing to all of you all the time, waiting to correct any ills. Focus on the amazing intelligence in the body that is constantly informed by the Source. Focus on anything joyful and healthy and happy and then dear ones, you will experience greater health. Your soul sees only the stream of well-being capable of correcting any imbalance if left unblocked by fear, doubt, and denser vibrations. When you can acknowledge this, you feel better and better. When you see limitations, you don't.
You see limitations, and you want freedom. Focus on the areas in life in which you are free. Focus on what you can do. Focus on the fact that the creator of worlds and your angels can assist you in finding some way to satisfy nearly any desire, if not in the immediate moment, then soon. Focus dear ones on the magnificence of the natural universe and its free-flowing evolution. Focus on your freedom to dream, to go anywhere, and do anything in your mind. As you tap into this freedom, to avenues for external freedom will be revealed. Your soul can never see you as held in limitation or bondage because it knows your power to create. When you feel this way, you feel good. When you see limitations, you don't.
Dear ones, you are powerful beyond measure. The power of your focus is immense. This is what Jesus meant when he said, "If you have faith the size of a grain of mustard, you can move mountains."
If you had total belief in the love that flows to you and through you, you'd revel in thoughts of peace, and then peace would flow into your life and emanate outward to those around you.
If you can enjoy the thought of being in a healthy body, or the feeling of anticipation as you dream about what you will do when you feel healthy and wonderful, then you have already begun to allow your own healing. If you can contemplate the miraculous way your cells connect to the power that creates worlds, and begin to feel even the tiniest bit of relief you are already beginning to recalibrate your body to its natural state of harmony and health.
If you can focus on the delicious feeling of being free to create, your external world will reveal ways to become more externally free.
When you can't find good feelings, be kind to yourselves. When you can't find the positive, then love yourself where you are. Sometimes you feel so hopeless that a good tantrum releases some pent-up energy. If you allow yourself a healthy, private rant, you may feel better. Sometimes feeling a little better isn't a feeling great just yet, but it is a little better. Allow yourself the evolution into love. Allow yourself to love yourself where you are, and then look for the next best feeling. Be kind to yourself. Accept yourself. That is love. That is a better feeling.
You are never judged. You are always loved. You are always supported in even the slightest bit of a loving vibration that you emanate. We are always here, laboring in love to assist you, heal you, help you, and love you in all the ways that you desire. Your attunement to love, little by little, is what lets it all in. In your willingness to simply accept yourself where you are, you allow love in. As you reach for even kinder feelings, you allow more love to flow into your lives.
Be kind to yourselves. Be accepting of yourself, no matter how you feel. Choose to love yourself even when you can't find a positive thought, and then reach for ones that feel a little better, one bit at a time. You are always, and eternally, unconditionally loved.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann...
I had something interesting happen about a month ago. I woke up with a big, painful dome emerging on the top of my head. It felt like a concussion. It was a big, tender, pressurized, unpleasant bump. Additionally, my body felt like it was in a vice grip, about to pop. The pressure was intense.
My first thought was, "Wow, that's interesting. "Angels... Jesus... Am I dying of a brain tumor?" I needed to know if it was time to unload my abundance of craft supplies at the thrift store and get my stuff in order! Looking back, I laugh at where my brain went. I know we're eternal and live beyond death, but I'd hate to leave a mess! The answer I got back was just as calm as the question, "No, you're not dying. Don't worry about this. Just let the love in, and you'll feel better soon. Trust." So I did. I proceeded to enjoy my life, pressure and all.
I started having “Ann Quakes” again when I lay still. These sensations feel like rolling earthquakes moving through my body and tectonic plates shifting suddenly. It made me think of the 2021 Icelandic volcano eruption. I had been enamored with the beauty of it, but hadn’t thought about it much since it went dormant. I put on my necklace from Fagradas fjall and felt it humming.
Around this time, my inbox blew up with tons of people writing me about old patterns returning. A comment I heard time and again was, “I thought I was done with that!” So many souls were putting pressure on themselves to be “perfect” according to some old standard and, simultaneously, wanting to move beyond those feelings into a more authentic life. Clearly, Mother Earth and the mass consciousness were up to something.
Curious about it, I dove inward to find the cause of the pressure in my own body. It was a bit of a puzzle until I realized that some very old guilt was bubbling up about not doing more for the world. I’ve been having a lot of fun crafting at night before bed, yet this very subtle old feeling of “maybe I should do more” had been creeping in. Barely perceptible guilt was nibbling away at the edges of my joy – about the same time that my head grew a dome! Nothing like a little pinching off a mighty flow to manifest tremendous pressure in the body! Oops. I shifted my thoughts quickly to revel in the fact that I’m living a happy, balanced life while making an authentic contribution and felt the energy start to flow again.
I woke up the following morning with a huge fountain of warm energy shooting out the top of my head and total relief from the pressure in my body. Happy Dance! Suddenly I felt the urge to look at what our Mother Earth was doing. Not surprisingly, the same volcanic system that caused the eruption in Iceland last year had opened up a huge fissure within hours of me waking up that was now emitting gorgeous geysers of lava. Incredible.
So if you're feeling pressure to change, pressure to do more, make more or be more, or if you're feeling pressure to put pressure on others, systems, organizations, or whatever... Stop. Breathe. Let go. Don't judge yourself. We all do it. Instead, stop and say to yourself, "I am who I am. The world is what it is. What next?" Choose the kindest thing you can focus on. I had what could have easily been mistaken for a brain tumor, or at least an inexplicable concussion. It was a big bad bump, and when I focused on it or touched it, it hurt. Instead, I focused on loving myself, life, and others, and the thing took care of itself!
I now know these truths to be self-evident:
Everything self-corrects with love.
Everything self-corrects with self-acceptance.
Everything in us self-corrects as we stop focusing on the problems and instead relax, open, and trust that the Source that creates universes will guide us to a solution.
The earth and the energetic universe are always seeking balance and always guiding us to it. We just need to accept ourselves and surrender to love, a little at a time.
I was guided to do what I needed to do. At times I chose to meditate over house cleaning and gardening over laundry. I decided to look at the miracles in nature and trust that this same power could fix my body. I chose to sip a glass of tea and appreciate the thousands of people who planted it, harvested it, shipped it, packaged it, wrote the little sayings on the tea bag, made the tea bag, unloaded it at the grocery store, and delivered it to me. That’s a lot of love inspired by a little cup of tea. Although seemingly unrelated to your problems, those feelings let love in, allow for healing, and plug you into abundance and all that you seek. Love is love no matter what or who you love. It plugs you into the most powerful force in the universe. It feels good :)
The world is wild right now. There’s a lot of pressure we’ve put on ourselves to be who we think we should be, and a lot of people putting pressure on others to be who they think they should be. “Let it all go,” the angels say. “Just be you. Live and let live. Let yourself feel as good as you can, as self-accepting as possible. Let the others be who they need to be.” Plugged into the power that creates worlds, you don’t have to worry about what anyone else is doing. You attract and allow your own joy, your own goodness, your own well-being. You live in God’s economy with God’s odds. It is a much kinder reality.
Our planet knows how to release her pressures by surrendering to the movement within. She doesn’t judge herself at all. We can surrender to the movement inside of ourselves too. Our planet knows how to release her pressures by surrendering to the movement within. She doesn’t judge herself at all. We can surrender to the movement inside of ourselves too. When we feel the pressure of any unpleasant emotion or thought, we can surrender to the love trying to arise within. That may mean having a private rant or a good cry and choosing to talk sweetly to yourself through it. It may mean reaching out for help from someone you trust. It may mean choosing to focus on something that feels just a little better. Step by step, we are rebirthing ourselves and this beautiful world.
Mother Earth is in on the fun, too. She is allowing herself the venting and steaming necessary to release her pressures.
Trust the process. A little more love + a little more self-acceptance = a lot more health, happiness, abundance, and help!
Here are a few tips to help you release the pressures of old programming
1. Question your shoulds
Every time you say you should do something, ask yourself, "Will my world fall apart if I don't?" Or "Will my world fall apart if I don't do it now?" Chances are, the answer is "no" most of the time. If there is something I must do at some point, I intend that I will feel wonderful accomplishing it. I focus on the feeling of having it completed. I imagine having the taxes paid, the accounting done, and the good feeling of folded laundry in the closet. When I don't feel like writing the newsletter, I tune into the great feeling of having written one that can help people. I imagine a feeling I'd have if things just fell into place – a feeling of wonder, celebration, and appreciation. Then I let go and trust that I'll get the impulses to achieve what I need to do before it needs to be done. It never fails.
Questions your shoulds. Prefer to feel good.
2. Know that you are good!
We put so much pressure on ourselves to prove our own goodness and worth, if not to anyone else, then to ourselves. So many people I talk to feel guilty about enjoying their lives vs. doing what they were taught to do in order to be “good girls” and “good boys.” You are already good.
Whether or not your house is clean, your life in order, or even if you’re in a bad mood, you’re a good person. You don’t have to prove it to God, the angels, others, or even yourself. Knowing your innate goodness is enough. Catch yourself when you’re doing something to prove or justify your goodness, and as the angels say to me at times, stop doing it, if it isn’t authentic.
The angels are rhyming in my head as I type...
Listen to your heart,
instead of your shoulds,
Don't prove your worth.
You're already good :)
3. Breathe and ask your soul what it thinks about a situation
When you are putting pressure on yourself for any reason, and it feels bad, you and your soul are not in agreement. Your soul always agrees with the Divine. Your soul always wants the most loving, kind, harmonious path for you and all involved.
So when you’re feeling pressured or stressed, sit quietly and ask your soul, “What do you think about this? What do you think is the kindest choice for me?” Wait. You’ll get a feeling, a thought, or some words popping into your head. If you get nothing, that means there’s nothing to do now except enjoy your day. Wait for more information.
As we move forward, the energies of love are getting increasingly intense! We’ve called for it, prayed for it, and begged God for help. We are therefore letting a lot of love into our planet. We are also feeling our blockages to it more strongly. We are feeling those areas where we ask for love and don’t treat ourselves with love. We are feeling the areas where we ask for more loving relationships and keep trying to force unloving ones to fit.
We are feeling those areas where we try to force ourselves to accomplish the “shoulds” instead of surrendering to the gentle and graceful flow our soul is guiding us to follow.
Try not to let the world and its antics get you down. Release yourself from the pre-conditioned pressures and instead focus on God, good, kindness, and love. In this fashion, your life will flow beautifully and you’ll become a powerful force of light for the world!
Have a beautiful week :)
