I don’t know absolutely that this period we’re living and journeying through from 11-11 to 12-12 is indeed a “wormhole” but that’s what I’ve perceived. I’d call it an energy tube instead… (Please click the link below to read this New Post on HighHeartLife- https://highheartlife.wordpress.com/2014/11/30/the-11-11-through-12-12-14-wormhole/ )
It is spiritually powerful to give thanks for both the light and the dark in our lives because it has all helped us learn, grow, and become more fully who we truly are.

MESSAGE FROM THE ANGELS
My dear friends, we love you so very much.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, whether you have recently celebrated the holiday or not, for in truth we give thanks for you every day of our eternal existence! You are all so very brave to incarnate upon your planet Earth, for Earth is one of the toughest schools in the universe – rich with both potential for understanding the diversity and beauty of God’s love in so many different forms, and yet also challenging beyond measure because of the very same.
You can find God more easily dear ones when you practice finding gratitude for all things, all beings, and indeed all situations in your life. You can experience love more easily if, for example, when you are presented with something less than loving you can say, “Thank you God for showing me ways in which I did not love myself in the past and thus drew this situation into my life! Now I choose love. Now I choose to walk away from painful experiences. Now I choose better. Bless the unevolved and unenlightened ones. Thank you for helping me grow into greater light.”
Can you be thankful for what is good in your life, even when some things are not there yet? Can you give thanks even for the trials, knowing you have learned? Can you look back upon everything in your life and find something to be thankful for? If you can, dear ones, you are embracing truth. You are embracing love. You are embracing the fact that the sun shines behind all clouds, and God’s love is ever-present guiding you in each moment to a kinder and more loving life.
Give thanks dear ones. Live in gratitude. Seek out the things you can be thankful for now. Every second that you focus upon love is an investment in a more beautiful and kind reality in your future!
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
MESSAGE FROM THE ANN
I exist in a state of gratitude. I get up thankful for a new day and go to bed grateful for my bed and blankets. I love the way the sunlight filters into the windows at different times of year, enjoy the sun, the rain, and everything in between. But when situations or people are challenging, that is where the angels have taught me to use free will to find something to be grateful for. It hasn’t always been easy. As humans many of us were conditioned to complain, to see the negative far too easily and to ignore the positive.A few years ago when I twisted my intestines and had to remain awake and upright for days at a time, with no sleep and no sitting or laying down, it was a challenge to be grateful. But honestly I was grateful for the fact that the angels had taught me about embracing the present or it would have been unbearable. When I was so tired that I fell asleep cooking the first meal I made after that ordeal, started a fire, and filled the house with smoke, I was grateful for both the fact that the angels woke me up and I stayed alive and the incredible job the insurance company did – restoring my house to better than it was before.When people have been unkind to me in unthinkable ways I can’t say I grateful in the moment, but I have learned to look back and see that I needed to learn to stop being a martyr, to embrace healthy boundaries, and to say “no” to those situations that robbed me of my God given joy and ability to focus on doing good in the world. Even those experiences I can now look back upon and give thanks for.There is great power in embracing gratitude, not only for what is easy and good, but also for that which has challenged us. We lose our “victim-hood” and embrace our “truth” when we find gratitude. We learn that although the path has been paved with both joys and pains, we have learned, grown, and embraced a kinder reality. The bumpy, rocky, rapids of our lives can give way to streams of grace when give thanks for it all.In the words of a Rascall Flatts song, that I absolute love (see video below):Every long lost dream led me to where you are.Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars,Pointing me on my way into your loving arms.This much I know is true.That God blessed the broken roadThat led me straight to you.”Gratitude is like turning the dial on the radio back to the station that broadcasts love into your life, and saying, “Yes indeed, Dear God, Bless the Broken Road that Led me Back to You!”Have a beautiful, grateful week!I am grateful for all of you!
