Message From The Angels: What To Trust
Category: Ann & The Angels Written by Ann Albers
My dear friends, we love you so very much,
You are living in exciting times! So many of you are concerned about the state of the world, and yet from our eternal perspective, your world offers so many beautiful possibilities right now.
You can connect with one another as never before. You can share information as never before. You can interact, witness, and experience more than ever before. The world has become your family and the entire earth your home.
Part of this is due to your modern technology. Your Internet opened up the gateways of connection for your entire world. Before this technology, most individuals grew up in relatively closed systems. They were influenced by friends, family, church, community, and maybe some carefully controlled news, but not much more. Now you can access ideas, inspiration, innovation, and just about anything you desire. You can make a recipe from a country you will never visit and encourage or assist a stranger you will never meet. More than ever before in human history, you are able to experience your connection with one another.
Likewise, your emerging technologies will give you access to whole new ways to combine information and bring your creative ideas into form. We celebrate your expansion and exploration. Technology does not control you, for you are the creators. You are the ones who choose how you will use it. It is neither good nor bad. It is simply a tool that obeys vibrational law in the same fashion as the rest of the created universe.
Use your technology with love, and you will find love. Use it with fear, and you will find the fearsome. Use it in anger, and you'll connect with the angry. Nothing is outside of the laws of vibration. This is simply how your universe works.
In truth, the world is no better or worse than it was in ancient times. You simply didn't have social media back then! You couldn't see what others didn't want you to see. Now you can. Now you witness the best and the worst of humanity. Now you can see things as they occur. However, what is revealed can be healed, and although some of the things you witness are horrific, the good news is that you – collectively – are doing something about them. You have taken those you will never meet into your hearts and prayers. Some of you have sent money or resources to your human family at one time or another in your life. Some of you have adopted children, signed petitions, or quietly sat in the comfort of your own home and focused all your love upon those less fortunate. Your connection is good.
With greater exposure to the world, however, greater discernment is required. More than ever before, it is important for you to manage your vibration so you can trust your feelings. When you are in a high and loving vibration, what feels good to you is good, and what feels bad is not what you want to focus upon.
This is especially important now because you cannot always trust what you see and hear. This is not a new phenomenon. There have always been "snake oil salesmen" who would put poison (or water) in pretty packages and sell it as a tonic. There have always been those who can tell a convincing lie or paint a false picture. With your social media, the Internet, and new technologies, the capacity to falsify information is even grander than ever! Then again, so is the ability to share wonderful ideas and information, connect in new ways, and embrace the fact that you are a human family.
So dear ones, keep reaching for better thoughts and feelings because you can trust yourselves in the energy of a high vibration. Don't worry about who is telling the truth and who is not. Tell the truth to yourselves – that you live in a loving and magnificent universe that is always guiding you toward what you wish to experience. You are not at the mercy of technology, systems, or other human beings, no matter how imposing they appear. You are only, and always, at the mercy of your own vibration.
In a loving vibration, you align with the truth of the Divine within, and this Presence will always guide you in love.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann...
Our world changed a few weeks ago. An image of the Pope in a white designer puffy coat went viral. The image was created for fun by a man who liked to play with an AI image generator. He got into the hobby after his brother died and used it to heal his grief. He liked to make funny pictures. He said he had no idea when he posted the image to a Facebook page that it would get so much exposure. Much of the world thought it was real, and many felt that the Vatican shouldn't spend so much on fashion! They weren't. The image wasn't even a real photo.
The joke was harmless enough. The man who created it didn't intend to hurt anyone. However, he unwittingly awakened the world to a glaring issue. The era of "deep fakes" is upon us.
Scammers have already used AI text-to-speech to clone the voice of a young man, call his parents and con them out of money. This behavior isn't new. We have all learned to deal with phishing emails, fake calls, and "free downloads" with viruses attached. False information has been available for a long time. Anyone can fake nearly anything these days. It has just become a lot easier.
It would be easy to become alarmed at the new trends, but as the angels say, even technology is subject to the law of attraction. Since I've been guided to learn, play with, and contribute to the brighter side of it, I've been having a blast. It has allowed me to release a very loving children's story and connect with so many of you over this in ways I barely dreamed of. (To all of you who have shared your hearts with me and pictures of the little angels with their books, thank you. I'm blown away and touched by your beautiful kindness!).
I've been testing vibrational law with AI art generation. The more I love it, the more inspiration I receive for prompts that give me beautiful imagery. No matter what tool I use, the more I love it, the more it loves me back!
I'm not worried about AI taking over humanity and killing us off, as some people are. I'm more concerned – as the leaders in the field are – about the people who will try to use it for malice. Then again, they'll find a way no matter what tools we give them.
So while the world is changing quickly, we have nothing to fear if we trust ourselves. You'll always elicit the lighter side from the world around you when you're in a loving vibration. You'll have the discernment to know truth from fiction, good-for-you from not-good-for-you. You'll be able to enjoy life, contribute, and lift others, simply because you create such a happy field they want to join you. That's my only intent here – to be as light-filled as possible and offer a space of joy or at least comfort in which you can dance as well.
I'll still laugh at crazy images of "Darth Vader cooking a cheeseburger in the food network kitchen" or "Star Wars stormtroopers mowing a Midwestern lawn." When I inevitably run across an image intended to mislead, I'll trust my gut over my eyes. You can too :)
Here are a few tips to help you trust yourself more:
1. Practice listening to your feelings
So many times over the years, people with good intentions have shared "facts" with me. When these "facts" feel more like fiction, I do my homework and fact-check. So often, I'm glad I did. Rumors and misinformation spread quickly.
Likewise, there are always scammers out there. When I get a phone message to "call this number, or I'll be sued," I delete it. When I get an email that feels suspicious, I check the address it is from and forward it to the appropriate organization or the FTC. I am fairly no-nonsense these days about trusting my feelings.
I have one client who trusted herself brilliantly and avoided a huge scam. A classic dating con artist hit on her. A man "who worked on an oil rig" came on to her like Romeo himself. He was madly "in love," He spoke like Prince Charming until he started making excuses for why they couldn't meet, why he needed her to send money, etc. Luckily she trusted her feelings and decided to play with him. She acted like the best supporting actress in a bad romance and started asking him for money! Needless to say, "he" (or rather the crime ring) disappeared! Later she used the story to get a job that required cleverness! Her play in the high vibe worked in her favor despite a lower vibe scammer!
So when you see or hear something that feels odd, pay attention to how you feel. Does your stomach tighten? Does something feel "off?" Your body has antennae for sensing energy; even if you can't trust everything you see and hear, you can trust your gut.
2. Notice & Congratulate yourself when you sense something accurately
How often have you said, "I knew it!" When you notice that you did accurately assess something, go back and look at it. How did you feel? How did you know? Pay attention to what you felt so you can recognize things you can trust in the future. Practice makes you closer to perfect.
Make sure you pay attention to and congratulate yourself for the times when you know what you know!
3. Don't beat yourself up if you believed something false - Just learn
We've all fallen prey to falsehoods in the past. We can usually look back and see if we had feelings or red flags that would have warned us. When you notice this, don't beat yourself up. Just learn from it. Resolve to pay attention to your feelings next time.
There will always be those who use the tools we have for good and those who use them for bad. There will always be new ways to create wonder, and new ways to lie. The tools are neither good nor bad. What dictates how they affect us is always our vibration. I feel good about that. We are not at the mercy of scammers, robots, or anything else. We are, instead, connected to the loving power that creates worlds.
Have a blessed week :)
