I haven’t shared a message from Ann in a while and today’s is beautiful. For everyone who hasn’t encountered Ann and her Angel messages-if this appeals to you, click the link at the end of this message to explore Ann’s site and read her most current newsletter.
It’s easy to coast through life just surviving, getting through the day without noticing that everything we do or encounter is part of much larger systems that connect us to the Universe and all living beings. I really appreciate the Angels reminder today to live in gratitude for all the amazing love we are always surrounded by.
MESSAGE FROM THE ANGELS
My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Turn your sights to love this year dear ones! Allow yourself to receive the vast and beautiful expressions of love that are available in every single moment of your life. Look outside at creation. You are loved. Take a sip of water. You are loved. Feel your hands, your lungs breathing, your heart beating… you are loved. Look at the spectrum of beautiful colors. You are loved. Listen to music that uplifts you. You are loved. Look in the eyes of an animal or a child. You are loved.
Look at the shelter around you. You are loved. Look at the food upon your plate. You are loved. Look at the fact that we are writing to you via this newsletter and aware of each and every one of you as precious, beautiful, cherished souls upon the earth. You are loved.
Dear ones, never is there a moment when you are without love. We know there are times when you are without human love, and we know that as normal, healthy human beings, you deeply desire these connections. However, even without human love, you have Divine love… in all things, in all places, anywhere you look you can find it.
This week take a bit of extra effort to look for the evidence of love all around you. The more you seek it, the more you will find it. The more you find it, the better you will feel. The better you feel, the more you will feel love, for love wants to circulate through the universe, into and out of each beautiful, beating human heart.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
— The Angels
MESSAGE FROM THE ANN
I took a sip of my coffee Sunday morning. The angels gathered around. I sensed they were there to make a point. My attention was drawn to the Styrofoam cup with its earth-friendly design.
“People took the time to invent Styrofoam, to shape it, to find a way to fuse the same and seal the bottom and color it with a pretty design so you wouldn’t burn your hands and you would find it beautiful,” they said. “Someone worked very hard to shape that lid so you could sip without spilling. There were hundreds of prototypes and many souls involved.” I looked at the simple cup, something we toss in the recycle bin, with a new perspective and appreciation.
The angels went on… “Someone grew those beans, hundreds picked them, sorted them, bagged them, shipped them, roasted them, bagged them, shipped them again, and put them on display. Someone designed the burlap bags, the pretty packaging, the machinery involved. The farmers, factory workers, delivery person, servers… all love themselves and their families enough to earn a living doing this work. Someone chose just the right combination of flavors and just the right strength because they wanted it to taste wonderful. Someone grew the grass, that fed the cows, that give the milk… and on they went, listing many more individuals who contributed to the beverage I was enjoying, previously without a great deal of thought. I started to sip… and savor more slowly.
“Ann, in that one sip of a simple cup of coffee, you are connected beyond space, and time, to thousands of souls. Thousands of souls labored to express love in some fashion or another to give you that one sip, that one simple pleasure… Can you feel the love that went into it? I took another sip, thinking of the thousands of individuals who worked to bring me this simple pleasure. I opened my heart, felt the sum total of their love, and was nearly brought me to tears.
No wonder coffee is such a spiritual experience!
Everything else too, for that matter…
Have a week filled with the love that is all around…
Love you all!
Love you all! Have a blessed week.
