My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Each one of you was born knowing you were completely free.
You entered the world expecting to experience the contrast which would inspire you to create. You came knowing you could adjust your vibration and attract whatever you wanted.
None of you ever said, "I want to give someone else control over my life. I want someone else to dictate my happiness or unhappiness. I want to give someone else power over my future. I want to let what someone is doing now, and all they've done in the past dictate what I experience in my life and my future."
Yet, most of you learned to do that somewhere along the way.
You learned to give the behavior and opinions of others more "air time" than the desires of your own soul. You learned to enjoy the "high" of others' dramas rather than the peace of God within. You learned to focus on what others were doing wrong instead of what you were doing right.
Dear ones, with each decision you make, you can reclaim your God-given power to be the sole creator in your life. While you may be affected by others, you need not let the effect be significant.
Suppose you see something in the news that concerns you. You worry about how it might affect your life. Although innocently, you are starting to give your power away to the behaviors of others. You are focusing on something you don't want, thereby drawing more of what you don't want to you. If, instead, you see something on the news that concerns you and remind yourself immediately. "Ah well, this is someone else's journey I am witnessing. I create my own reality. I will sit briefly and envision a better and kinder world." Then dear ones, even if the behavior on the news is violent and angry, you will attract kind and loving souls into your life.
Suppose you are around someone in your personal life who behaves badly—a boss, coworker, child, or spouse. You can't help but witness their anger, upset, or worry. They are right in front of you. You may not be able to control them, but you can control how much you focus on their negativity vs. how much you focus on their light or the light in anything else around you.
Your spouse may grumble incessantly about the state of the world. You can argue, complain with them, or choose a better vibration. You can say, "Yes, things are stirred up, but we're going to have a great dinner tonight!" You can enjoy your own vibration even when they do not enjoy theirs.
Suppose someone accuses you of putting your head in the sand and ignoring "reality" instead of getting worked and angry. You can get defensive and upset by focusing on their accusation, or you can happily agree! "Yes, I am ignoring much of what makes me miserable while I'm busy being happy!" They may not like that statement. They wanted you to join them in their anger. So what, dear ones? You get to choose. You get to focus on things that make you feel better. Unless you choose this, you are not on a leash tied to feel what others feel.
Your world is loaded with stark contrasts right now. You already know this. You see it frequently. There are substantial political divides. There are arguments about technology and where it is going. There are clashes between old and new parenting styles, education, environmentalism, etc. If you believe contrast is terrible, this can be terrifying. If you see through the eyes of your soul, you'll see an evolving world. The stirring up of the old is birthing the new! The political division inspires young souls who are focusing on solving the world's challenges here and now. While old systems argue about the best way to clean up the environment, young people are actually doing it. While people debate and rage about politics, other individuals are vibrationally and physically creating a unified world in their own lives connecting with those who also want harmony.
You cannot change systems by fighting systems. You can not change others by making them wrong. You will only defeat yourself. You will chain yourself, vibrationally speaking to that which you focus upon. You can never wish for your horrible ex to know the pain they have caused you without causing yourself horrendous pain. You vibrationally chain yourself to that which you focus upon. Turn away, dear ones, from the things that upset you. Turn your sights towards a better world and kinder people. The thoughts that give you joy will become your reality if you allow yourself to enjoy them and give the universe space to deliver their essence
If you lalow yourself to live in a more loving expectant vibration, you will get something that matches the feeling of what you want—something which surprises and delights you! If you dim your light, dial down your vibration, and allow negative situations and people who crave your focus and vibrational companionship to own your mind, then you will delay your creations.
You never intended to be chained to the behaviors of another. Use your power of focus to turn the other cheek, to look away from what upsets, worries, and creates negativity within you. Turn your sights to the good in this world, the good you can find now, and the good you wish to see. Seek, and ye shall find. Knock, and the door will be opene
The antics of others can become no more impactful than the antics of characters in a play – a play in which you all get to focus on and act in the roles you choose. No matter who does what around you, choosing to remain a victim or become a creator is only a matter of focus. Place your sights where you want them to be, and don't allow the negativity of others to grab your attention for more than a few seconds. Your spirit and your energy are valuable resources. You are worthy of so much more.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann
I'm sitting on my back patio with the portable computer enjoying the birds chirping and the breezes blowing on what may be the last of our cool 90-degree days :) It is lovely out. I covered the tomatoes this weekend with shade cloth, gathered seeds from the now-spent lettuce, chard, and cilantro, and blessed all my plants. This morning I picked three eggplants, five peppers, and a handful of basil. Life is good.
The past weekend I hauled boxes back and forth from storage, taking down my ester decor and putting up my summer items. I went a little nuts making holiday decorations from the dollar store in 2021, and now my house is in a constant space of celebration. It makes me happy. I choose happy surroundings. I talk to people in real pain every day. My work involves listening to my client's challenges and allowing the angels to present loving solutions.
The angels have worked with me to manage my vibration while witnessing so much pain. They taught me to listen with love and compassion and to focus more on the heavenly love coming through me. They prepared me to bear witness to the heart, capability, strength, and beauty of each soul I talk to. As a result, I can keep going and keep an open and loving heart. Love alleviates burnout and allows me to let the angels bring through their comfort, grace, and ideas for solutions.
I've had people love me for this and those who have hated me. Most people come because they want to feel better. A few come because they want to hear that their ex/mother/father, whoever will suffer for their "sins." The angels are always patient, always loving, and always honest. As people share their upsets, the angels compassionately offer understanding, love, and a kinder path. No one is ever made wrong.
The angels and enlightened souls view everyone as innocent, even in their worst behavior. They see even the worst characters on earth as those who live in misunderstanding. They know that if people understood who they are and the love available to them, we'd all act a lot nicer. Rather than hating theaters, they feel compassion. Rather than wanting to kill the killers, they wish for them to understand their actions' repercussions and return to God. Rather than being prejudiced about prejudicial people, they encourage prayers to help assuage the fears and misunderstandings that drive their sad behaviors. They also encourage us to have good boundaries! Innocent. The angels and the enlightened beings see all souls as innocent. They have compassion for the lost, lonely, scared, and angry who become pariahs in our society. They, like God, wish for us all to return home to love.
So how does this have anything to do with us reclaiming our power? Well, if we get worked up about who is doing what and why, we can easily let the behaviors of others drag us into despair. If we can witness it, acknowledge the misunderstandings that drive it, say a quick prayer, and move our focus to better, we will experience a much better quality of life. Energetically we will rob the darkness of the attention it wants. Those lost in darkness have no experience of connection to God, so they have no actual power source. They want energy from us—via our time, attention, and upset. We can put fuel in the tank of those who misbehave by paying attention to them, or we can do what we must then turn our sights towards better.
In so doing, we create happy lives. My vegetables get more attention than the wild antics of others. I pray for all involved and go back to my plants. My calling is to spread love and kindness. Vibrationally, I do a lot of good by empowering those who operate in love, whether or not I will ever know or meet them. So can you.
Here are a few tips to help you navigate the human tendency to focus on those who want attention for their negative behavior so you can reclaim your power to create a better life and a better world:
1. Don't try to feel good about something bad
If your ex attacked you, lied about you, or cheated on you, it isn't likely you will ever feel good about those behaviors. However, you can feel good about your own growth, about how you embraced the changes, became more honest with yourself, treated yourself better, asked for more, etc. Or you can focus on the cool feel of your kitchen countertop and revel in the privilege of having a modern kitchen. You can enjoy some love with your dog.
The topic doesn't matter. Vibration is what attracts things, people, and situations to you. So don't try to feel good about something bad. Try to find something that feels better.
2. Relieve yourself from the burden of changing others
People change if they want to and not if they don't. That is true no matter how much we bully, cajole, threaten, manipulate, educate, or make wrong. And we've all done all of the above, even if unintentionally, at some point in our lives. We've all done it with the best of intentions. We're concerned about someone else's bad habits, so, in our fear, we engage in all these "convincing behaviors" that focus on the other's wrongness rather than focusing on what we want. It always backfires.
Can you feel the difference between, "I'm terrified of losing you! You have to eat healthy so you don't have a heart attack," vs. "I love you so much I hope you live a long time. I know you prefer foods that don't agree with your heart, but would you permit me to explore some healthy options that might agree with your tastebuds? I won't pressure you to eat anything you don't like. I'll just do what I can to find things you enjoy." Option 1 is a "make wrong" for which you'll get resistance or false cooperation at best. Option 2 is you saying, "I love you as you are. May I try some things to support your health and happiness?" It is easier to focus on what's wrong than to get creative and focus on how to be truly helpful if you are in your brain. In your heart, however, in a higher vibe, I've seen the angels inspire people with brilliant cooperative solutions.
As you relieve yourself of the burden of changing others, you empower yourself to be loving and to gently assisted them with changes they genuinely want,
3. Stop giving your power away to "those in power."
No one has power over your life experience except you and your vibration. That's it. That's the way the universe works, and in this generation, we are all grappling with the paradigm shift from a mechanistic world to an energetic one. We are the ones in between worlds. The young people get it already. So many in the younger generations will choose quality of life over "traditional" success. I stumbled on a video on youtube where a young guy talked about how he strategically priced his items to sell. After describing his thought process, he said, "I look forward to the comments of the morally superior, but hey, I have a good life, and I'm being upfront." I howled at how honest he was! He certainly wasn't allowing the behavior or judgments of others to dictate his reality.
We grew up in a culture that looked to authority figures for how we should live. We idolized celebrities, expected world leaders to have our best interests at heart, and listened to those around us (or quietly rebelled!). We are moving into a new paradigm where we support what we wish in our leaders but take more responsibility for our own lives. We can no longer expect others to do things for us. We can't wait for the economy to be good to dial into a vibration of abundance. We need not wait for peace on earth before we dial into peace. We are—one person at a time—choosing to manage our minds and, therefore, create our own experience of life.
So next time you see something doing something that inspires fear or upset, pause. Remind yourself that the behavior of others has little power over you if you exist in a loving vibration.
You and I were born free. Remembering that is bliss!
Have a blessed week,
Ann Albers and The Angels
