My dear friends, we love you so very much,
One of the questions we hear most often in heaven is, "Why do bad things happen to good people?"
"Why do God and the angels not intervene and save people from the cruelty of others?" "Why does God not destroy those who wish to destroy others?"
These are questions worth asking because the answer will carry you beyond the world of your conditioning and into the energetic reality that governs how your universe operates.
You projected yourselves into your 3D reality because you wanted the adventure of creation. You were eager to immerse yourself in the vast diversity of life on earth. You knew that as you witnessed different things, behaviors, people, and situations, you would be inspired to create—through your focus and tuning—as never before. You knew you would call love from the intangible realms into this reality and, therefore, be part of the continuing creation of this reality. You were eager. You knew you'd have free will. Even if you chose parents who would catalyze great growth, you knew you had the free will to think what you wanted to think, focus on what you wanted to focus on, and, therefore, empower different realities.
In your 3D world, babies appear helpless. They are not yet mobile, verbal, or able to care for themselves. However, in the energetic reality, these brilliant souls are already emitting vibration, engendering reactions from life around them, and pointing their powerful love at what they wish to experience.
This begs the question, "Why are some babies born sick?" "Why are some born into unthinkable wars?" From the 3D perspective, this seems unjust, but the universe operates in a vibrational dance. Vibration does not punish and reward as you do in your human reality—vibration matches or not. A radio tuned to FM does not punish the AM signals by ignoring them. It simply cannot receive the differing signal due to its very nature. It can focus only on FM wavelengths.
So, too, there is a focus of energy in these souls coming to earth that will influence their family of origin, their circumstances, and, therefore, the experiences that transpire. The minute a soul incarnates in a physical body, they begin to emit vibration and attract what is a match. If they are born into a fearful family, it will take a great deal of focus from their soul not to fall into fear and experience fearful circumstances. They know this before they are born.
There are those among you who go to the gym to lift heavy weights. This is neither easy nor pleasant at times. However, these souls have a strong desire to become very, very strong, so the temporary pain is worth the gain to them. One could lift very gradually over a long period of time and become strong. One could visualize lifting in great detail and become strong. One could become a mother and become strong carrying their child! One could live their entire comfortably and never care about being physically strong. Each one of you would choose a different path—neither right nor wrong, simply different.
This analogy applies to souls coming to earth. Suppose you wish to create an unshakable focus on the security of God. In that case, you might choose a faithful family who acts as a role model. If you tend to worry and fret no matter what, you might face that tendency head-on by choosing a fearful family that would mirror that back and present a strong incentive for you to be different. If you wish to create more self-love, you might choose a family in which you see others love and care for themselves and follow those role models, or if you have a tendency to be hard on yourself, you might incarnate into a family that mirrors that until you, yourself, choose to remove your attention from the unloving and love yourself.
Sometimes, these souls are little angels who incarnate into families, knowing they will die with them, just to help guide the loved ones into the light. Sometimes, they go through the unthinkable to inspire compassion in the millions who will see their story on the news. Sometimes children come in with an illness as teachers weathering their challenges with amazing grace and inspiring all around them.
While immersed in 3D reality, it is difficult to understand that the eternal dance is more important to the soul than a possible, temporary experience of pain or challenge. Nonetheless, you are eternal souls. Some of you embraced challenges willingly as part of your pre-birth plans, and some of you embrace challenges that result from simply focusing too often on vibrations less than loving, that don't feel good, to begin with.
This is why we teach, preach, and enjoin you to care about your feelings and choose thoughts that feel good. You experience more love, grace, and ease as you reach for the loving vibrations. Even if you came in determined to put yourself through challenges to incentivize the reach for love, you don't have to continue on that path. You can reach for love now and shift out of those challenges.
The Divine gave you free will. Your angels must honor that. A parent could lock their child up in paradise to ensure a smooth and easy journey on earth, but the child would rebel. The child wants to experience life, make decisions, and expand. Likewise, the Divine could plant you in paradise, and for a while, you'd love it, but then you'd become bored. You'd want new experiences. You'd want choices and challenges. Would a child want a parent who gives them only a limited range of "safe choices?" Many of your parents tried! Did you appreciate it or seek your freedom to experience all of life?
Dear ones, life, within you and all beings and even universes, seeks expansion and growth. The Divine, your angels and soul who can truly love on earth, allows you the free will to make your own choices and experience your own outcomes. If you reach for help, we, your angels, can respond to all the loving vibrations in that request. To the degree you fear, you cannot hear. To the degree you hate, you make yourself wait for that love. To the degree you choose to look away from the pain and find the beauty in each moment, you open like a flower to eternal sunshine, love, assistance, and grace. It is always there.
So, "Why do bad things happen to good people?" You would have to examine each case individually for a specific answer, but the general answer is simple in all cases. Either they are open to the love flowing in each moment that can help them through even their chosen challenges, or they are not. Perfectly good people are hard on themselves and pinch off the flow of love, creating illness. Amazing earth angels feel they must martyr themselves instead of caring for themselves and often become silently bitter about it, thus pinching off love. Amazingly generous souls often ignore their warning signs and forge ahead with their giving even when it ceases to feel good.
We are not encouraging you to leave behind the love and goodness in your heart but rather to pay attention. When things feel good, in that moment, they are good. When they start to feel differently, make different choices. Good things happen to match good vibrations. Bad things happen when good vibrations have been sufficiently pinched off.
What you experience has nothing to do with your value or worth because you are already precious, already worthy, already encouraged by the Divine and your angels to choose a path that gives you joy.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann
The question of why bad things happen to good people has been one I've asked, both globally and personally. It has taken me years of practicing vibrational choice—one better thought at a time, to truly see the cause and effect of the energy we emit. I've been privileged to see clients with unthinkably challenging life plans who shift to a grace-filled and beautiful reality. Some of them incarnated into abusive families, hoping to awaken them with love, only to find that the individuals on earth were entrenched in their own pain and not reachable. The light in these loving souls is strong, and so many, over the years, found the courage to love themselves and to let go of those who could not.
Even now, I have amazing, light-filled clients who were in the bombings and managed to escape due to their high vibration and awareness of their guidance. A dear one on this list (you know who you are) told me that nine days after the Turkish earthquake this year, the rescue teams were pulling little kids out of the rubble who were in perfect shape despite not having food and water the whole time. The children, who had gone through what we'd all call a "very bad thing," talked about the "beautiful ladies" who played with them (angels!) while buried alive. These children gave hope and brought light to a grieving nation.
I've seen people who were fatally ill recover as they learned to forgive and focus more on their own joy, and I've seen people die because the old patterns of focus were too hard to release. One dear woman I knew 20 years ago comes to mind. Even with a fatal disease, she could not stop taking care of others and wore herself out till the end. She stands by her choices in heaven! She knows that she chose this, and to her, it was OK.
I spend my life trying to add light to this world, yet I've been attacked by people I've gone above and beyond to help. In my earlier days, I felt thoroughly victimized. "I'm just a punching bag," I'd whine. Then, the angels had me take a step back and look at my vibration to see cause and effect in the energy world. I had always felt bad when I couldn't help someone or give them what they wanted. Of course, outer life mirrored that back. I attracted people who beat me up when I could not please them."
I'm lucky to be alive. Many serious things have happened in traffic, but due to my vibration, I was cautioned, guided, and lived. While driving north to teach an angel class last year, a drop cloth blew off the truck ahead of me and covered the windshield of my car, which was filled with supplies and my friends/helpers. We had been in such a loving, laughing, high vibe that I was calm enough to let the angels guide my hands and steer through a lane of traffic to get off the freeway while only being able to see out a side window. I got out of the car, gathered up the drop cloth, and on we went to have a glorious day. A very bad thing could have happened to some good people that day. Our vibe helped us dance around it.
It will never be easy to watch the pain and suffering in the world. I consciously steer my thoughts to focus on something better because I don't want to lose my soul's light to those seeking to engender darkness, fear, anger, and. hatred. I don't want to give in to the lost who want company in their darkness and think it is OK to hurt others. To the best of my ability, I want to remain a pure and strong light to provide balance, love, guidance, and support to all I can.
As good people learn to embrace consistent good vibrations for themselves and others, they'll experience more good.
Here are some pointers to help you feel love when you see bad things happening to good people.
1. Remind yourself you have a choice in any given moment
Right now, you can focus on the pain in the world or the love in your heart. If you focus on the pain and 3D unfairness, you will hurt. If you focus on the love in your heart, you will help and heal. So when you see something horrible, stop. Breathe. Pray for the souls involved and resolve to be in your light even more strongly. Look for the eternal all around — the sky, the trees, the bees, the flowers. Breathe in and feel appreciation for the air you inhale. Refocus again, and again if you have to, a thousand times a day until you become practiced at focusing on what feels better.
We can't control anyone else's vibrational field, but we can shift our own, become more light-filled, and be part of the solution.
2. Stop wasting time on "shoulds"
Right now in Iceland an entire village of 3000 people was peacefully evacuated when scientists discovered that volcanic magma was rumbling directly under the town. These amazing people didn't spend much time thinking about what "should" or "shouldn't" be. They gathered up important stuff, helped their neighbors, cooperated with authorities, and got out in a peaceful manner. If the volcano blows, they'll all be alive. If they had fought this mandate, arguing about whether or not they should evacuate when they did, bad things might have happened to a lot of very good people. We could spend a lifetime thinking about what "should" and "shouldn't" be. We may be right, but that doesn't change a thing. Better to acknowledge your feelings and ask the Divine, "What can I do next?" "How can I be part of the solution I wish to see?"
These days, when people ask how they can help end the atrocities of war, the angels quietly and compassionately remind us to stop warring with life, stop bombing ourselves with criticism, and stop trying to kill off other's ideas.
The end of what "should not be" starts inside each one of us.
Sometimes, external conditions trigger old, dormant internal pain. If watching the world leaves you unable to function, either stop watching, refocus on something better, get help, or help others.
The more we love, whether through appreciation, giving, praying, or just doing something we enjoy, the more effective we become.
Bad things do happen to good people. Sometimes, they choose an ambitious life path. Sometimes, they quietly simmer or stuff their feelings. Sometimes, they pretend to be up when down. I've done all the above!! It has taken years, but through experience, I have come to know and understand the vibrational dance. It is empowering when you can practice enough to get your own proof.
May all people choose good thoughts, good vibes, and therefore create good realities.
Have a blessed week,
Ann Albers and The Angels
