My dear friends, we love you so very much,
You never need to give up on yourself, your hopes, or your dreams. You don't need to earn your manifestations or prove your worth to the heavens.
There's no need to convince us, persuade us, or insist on having what you want. Before you even have time for these considerations, you have emitted a loving energy of desire to which we, the Divine, and the entire universe have begun to respond.
Your only job is to be receptive to love.
Imagine that you are a radio that can talk. You might say, "I want to broadcast FM station "XYZ." I insist on it! It is important. I need to hear the news on this station now. As you know, until the radio tunes into the station, it can't pick up the signal, no matter how it argues for why it should. It must become receptive by attuning the frequencies it wishes to receive. Likewise, you must tune into love to pick up love's signals.
You don't have to focus obsessively on your manifestations. You don't have to feel positive about everything in your life. You don't have to have a clue how to create something you want. You don't even have to believe in your dreams all the time! You just have to believe in and tune into something that feels like love as often as possible. You will know when you're on the path to your desires because you'll feel good. You'll know you're tuned into streams of grace when things flow more easily, synchronicities abound, and you enjoy the journey.
Don't beat yourself up when you're not there. Give yourself a hug. Congratulate yourself for being alive. It is optional! You choose to awaken each morning. Breathe deeply and feel the air in your lungs. Massage your own hands. Sip a glass of water and appreciate the feel of it. Even in these small acts of grace, you are receiving love. Even in these seemingly meaningless moments, you are attuning to a higher vibration. It is so much simpler than humanity has made it. You need only find that which feels like love. If you did nothing else but enjoy your moments and your days, so much more would come.
Relieve yourself of the burden of feeling perfect about everything you wish. Relieve yourself of the burden of trying to feel wonderful about everyone and everything. That is a tall order for most. Instead, dear ones, focus on what is good. Focus on what you like about the individuals in your life. You married that spouse for a reason! You felt good about the job when you took it. Look for the qualities that can uplift you so that more may come.
We are not suggesting you should stay in dense situations. We are not saying you should like what you do not. We wish for you what we know, that in this universe of contrast, you can focus on love, feel love, flow love, and thus attract love in the forms you desire.
Try today to simply look for what is good each time a difficult thought arises. Be kind to yourself in the process. You will find little moments of love and evidence of good everywhere. You will lift yourself. In this space, by the very nature of the universe, you will open the door to more.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann
I am writing this Sunday night, a week before you read it. Our hot summer is giving way to fall, and the 90-degree afternoons feel like heaven in the desert! I know, it's all relative :). I have a full plate of work, but the garden was calling. On went my well-worn and well-loved rose gloves. Out came the trimmers. Soon, I was knee-deep in rose cuttings and pruned veggies.
I cut back the cattails, which planted themselves several years ago, but left their stems strong standing since my peppers like to use them as stakes. Speaking of peppers, we're going on two years now, and the plants are still giving. I'm in awe. Ms. eggplant produced enough fruit for a luscious veggie lasagna, and the basil is three feet high and glorious. When the bees weren't looking, I buried my face in it and became intoxicated by its herbal perfume.
Simple pleasures such as these instantly put me in a high-vibe stream. I had to run inside to capture the angel message, which flowed easily. Had I denied my heart, the produce would have gone unnoticed, and I'd still be struggling with the newsletter.
Life need not be easy or perfect to find a high-vibe flow. The people you care about don't have to be in a good space. Your bank account doesn't have to be overflowing, and you don't need anyone else to make you feel good. We all make it way too complicated at times. High-vibing is as simple as finding anything to feel good about, whether enjoying the garden, inhaling a fragrance you love, or pondering a simple inspirational quote.
Babies know this well. I watched my friends with young toddlers and marveled at their ability to find good-feeling fun for their kids. The little ones would throw a tantrum at a restaurant, and my wise friend would immediately find a loving distraction. Her little one immediately perked up. She was all in if mom distracted her from something that felt bad with something better!
Learning to tune in to things that feel good is a matter of going along with our essential nature, and bucking the programmed beliefs that tell us feeling good has to be conditional. Why not choose to feel better when life is tough? Why not seek what feels good when something else does not? Whoever demonstrated that you can't feel good until life is perfect and everyone behaves as you wish simply didn't know any better.
When something serious appears in life, as it has these past few weeks, I turn to anything that feels better to manage my vibe. As I've mentioned, a dear one had a potentially life-threatening condition. Last week, they got a cold, too, and couldn't keep me updated on what was going on due to a sore throat and a phone out of order. They don't live close enough to visit. I was in the dark about what was going on.
In the past, this would have driven me nuts. I would have spun into worst-case scenarios. "What if they die, and I never get that final conversation? What if...?" When I got the news that there would be no contact for a few days, I sat, breathed, received the angels' love, and focused on my dear one's well-being. The challenges are still there, but we're in contact again, and help is on the horizon.
These days, no matter what is going on with whom, I give myself permission to live, love, and enjoy life's pleasures, be they grand or small. I allow others their journey and trust they know I love them and am here when they want what I can offer. The angels have taught me that desperately trying to fix a loved one so I can feel better is an unkindness to them and an escape from my real work. My vibe is my job, no matter what is going on. That's hard to grasp at first due to our conditioning, but incredibly empowering when it sinks in.
It takes only a single moment to open to love and a better flow. I smell a flower and am transported to the eternity of life. I plant a seed and witness the energy of God bursting forth. I ordered two mushroom growing kits and sang to the little mycelium before opening the pack and misting them. Apparently, they need water, oxygen, and sound! Who knew? I felt the life force within them burst forth in response, and now, every time I mist the little mushroom packs, they emanate loving energy. It's crazy, and it's delightful! I can't wait to see the little guys growing up, and even more so, I can't wait to cook them!
While, at first, it might seem insensitive to be happy when those you love are not, when the world feels wackadoodle, or when a dear friend has recently died, it is not. By being sensitive to the Divine within and the force of life itself as it keeps guiding me, I can be a far greater influence for good in a high vibe, and more compassionate to my dear one's needs and moods.
Of course, I don't flaunt my happiness to those hurting, although I don't hide it when asked. I don't get preachy or make anyone else wrong. I don't try to hurry up and drag others into a better space to make myself feel better. Instead, I make my own mood matter by minding my own mind so I can stand strong in the light.
Any day can be a good day, not necessarily because things are easy but because the good is there to seek, see, and experience, no matter what else is happening.
Here are a few tips to help you see and seek the love no matter what is going on...
1. Give yourself permission to enjoy the small things
It is easy to get stuck thinking, "I'll be happy when..." "I'll be happy when all my loved ones feel good." "I'll be happy when I have that relationship." "I'll be happy after the debt is paid." "I'll be happy when I know what is going on with my dog." The list is endless. We could put off happiness for a long, long time. The trick to enjoying life and being in a vibration to receive the endless stream of help from heaven is to find the good now.
There are so many small things to enjoy. Try it now. Find something around you and be present with it. Appreciate the textures, the feel, possibly the smell, the shape, or the color. Enjoy it. Think of the hands that made it or the forces of nature that created it. Even these small moments of permitting yourself to appreciate something small can completely shift your vibration. I do it all the time. It works.
Appreciating a small moment or a small thing can be the key to a large vibrational shift.
2. Don't believe what you are "sold" in terms of how you "should" feel
There is good and bad in the world. We all know it. In the end, all will be used for good, but now I use these human words to distinguish between loving and unloving. If you buy into what is being sold to us by many sources, we should all run around, afraid to die at any moment, afraid of governments, the economy, and so on. The truth is scary, and emotional stories sell well. If you can get someone hooked on the dopamine the brain releases with such things, they'll watch the show repeatedly, and you'll get good ratings. There is a biology and psychology to what we see broadcast, and it rarely takes into account our well-being.
In truth, there are a gazillion quietly good people and loving stories occurring at every moment. The problems, challenges, and contrast are real, of course, but so is the love. Love is the real story—the lasting, eternal story. Look for that, and don't let those who spread fear, discontent, and the rest get you to agree with their sad diagnosis of the world.
You can be aware of problems, participate in solutions as guided, and find great passion in making the world a better place.
We need not buy the lie that we must and should feel scared, bad, and upset. The heavens are always lobbying for our joy.
3. Remind yourself that you are more powerful to create good when you feel good
It is not selfish to take care of yourself, feel good inside yourself, or do kind things for yourself. When you fill it, you spill it. When you align with your soul's view of life and its focus, you open to the powerful flow of love that is always waiting for you to point it. Feeling good and in a high vibe, you can focus on "best possible outcomes" instead of worse. You can focus on your beauty, strength, grace, and loving heart and focus away from your perceived shortcomings.
| In so doing, your beauty, grace, strength, and spiritual power to point love in any direction will grow.
have been feeling overwhelmed with love lately, probably because I keep choosing it despite a lot going on around me. I have been feeling grateful for so much. I don't know you all, but I just love you. I feel you.
As I write these articles, it is hard to describe, but I feel a river flowing through me, from the higher realms, through my heart, to you. Your stories warm my heart. Your victories in being kind to yourself make me sing for joy. I pray daily for your peace, joy, and wishes come true. I give thanks that we are all on this beautiful journey together.
Have a blessed week,
Ann Albers and The Angels
