The excerpt from Ann’s message below, and the angel’s message are both so exactly perfect. I think a lot of us have been feeling a lot of confusion, discomfort etc instead of the expected bliss and resolution post 12-21.
Despite so much work on ourselves, at least for me, when I don’t fit the mold, meet the mark etc it is easy to forget that life is not a movie and everything doesn’t go according to script;-)
I love the way this message not only reminds us to be as gentle with ourselves as we would be with someone we love(!) it gives specific pointers on HOW to get our lives to move more where we want them to be. I love practical advice;-)
As always much gratitude and love to Laura for sharing such helpful stuff every day!
(excerpt from Ann’s message)
It is so easy to get down on yourself when life doesn’t look like you want. It is easy to feel bad when we aren’t our best. But it is imperative that we remember the truth of who we are, because if we don’t we’ll take out the lie of who we aren’t on life and the world around us. So next time you’re not feeling like sweet wonderful you, take some time to care for yourself, acknowledge yourself, and focus on what IS true within you. I was still a caring and compassionate soul even when frustrated beyond belief. I was still a good person when I was wishing my dog was on the other side during the worst of it. I was still an incarnation of God’s love when I was throwing a serious tantrum to heaven about my vacation being “messed up.” In truth as soon as I remembered who I was, I felt worthy of help, I remembered to ask for help, and I got help. Suddenly my vacation went back to God 🙂 And that is where I want my entire life to be rooted and reside… in the truth that we are all made of the same stuff… the light, love, and truth of God!
Message from the Angels
My dear friends, we love you so very much.Happy New Year and as we like to say Happy New You! Happy New, Wonderful, Magical, Creative, Abundant, Prosperous, Wise, Caring, Compassionate, Loving You! For that is how we see you! This is who you really are. This is what you want to bring to the surface this year! It is a year of loving the truth of yourself. It is a year of being authentic. It is a year of being committed to being “real” with everyone and everything around you.
Look around your homes. What gives you joy? What brings you down? Look at your lives? What situations uplift you? What no longer represent who you wish to be in this world? Look at your relationships. Are you relating from a place of loving truth? Are you really being the real you? Dear ones, if you can love all of who you are, in a given moment, you can change the course of your entire life. If you can say, “Here I am. This is who I am now, and I love me! I know I am God’s love incarnate, whether I feel it or not. I know I have a beautiful heart, whether or not I am choosing to bring it to the surface right now or not. I know I have wisdom within me, whether I feel it or not,” then dear ones you will start to experience a kinder reality almost immediately. For in choosing to love the truth of your spirit, dear ones, you focus upon it. And whatever you focus upon with love is coaxed to the surface, nurtured, and experienced more deeply.
Look at your complaints! So many on earth truly love to complain. And so you focus your love on your complaints and thus they are reinforced and magnified. What if, instead, you focused on what is good, true,and beautiful with such great energy and love, for indeed it takes less energy to focus on what is good. It simply takes a little willpower and the willingness to shift your attention. If you aren’t feeling abundant yet, look at the abundance of resourcefulness you have used thus far to get by. Focus on what is good within you. If you aren’t feeling loving yet, focus on the fact that you at least are trying and that in itself shows there are seeds of love attempting to sprout. If you are not feeling healthy and well yet, focus on any little part of your previous physical vehicle that is feeling well, or even better yet imagine what it might feel like, or did feel like, to feel well.
You have so much power within you! Your power is to focus your love on whatever it is you wish to bring to the surface, experience, and magnify. Sunlight is needed for seeds to sprout out of the darkened soul, and your love is needed to sprout the seeds of power, love, and goodness within you! They exist. They are present already. Water them with kindness to self. Shed the light of your love on what is good within you. Then stand back and watch with wonder as these beautiful seeds begin to grow.
Happy New Year! Happy New You… or shall we say, Happy More Truthful, Authentic, Already Beautiful You!.
God Bless you! We love you so very much.
