Messages from the Angels

My dear friends, we love you so very much,

So many of you are asking, "When is this going to be over?" A better question might be, "Who will I be when this is over? How will I have grown? What improvements have I made inside of myself that will cause a happier resonance in my life in the future?"

For dark and difficult thought it might be for so many, this is a rare opportunity upon your planet earth for so many of you to dive deeply within your own spirit – to feel what you have not felt, to dream what you have not dreamed, to wish for the world you have not dared to wish for. There is no running from yourselves when emotions are running so strongly in the current of human consciousness. There is opportunity here – to heal, to love yourself, to create.

If you are bored, allow for the boredom. Sit with it. Feel the feelings that arise if you are not productive, not allowed to distract in the usual ways. Embrace yourself and love the parts of you that were previously stuffed into the back of your minds. It is time to heal these parts and send them into the light. Sit in silence if you can and see what arises because beneath the voices and feelings that need healing, are the seeds of your soul's true desires. Deep within your heart of hearts, you may just connect with whatever it is you wish to create this lifetime. You may start to deepen your awareness of who you wish to be. Start by being that person now.

If you are instead, busy beyond measure, serving and assisting the masses, then get in touch with the angelic love in your heart that has placed you in a position to do so. Serve from this light, this depth, this love, and you will be protected by the very current that creates universe. Get in touch with and allow yourself to admire your ever-loving heart. Allow yourself to feel yourself as the hands, the eyes, the mind of God for those you serve.

Dear ones, this will be over soon enough. Life will gradually return to "normal" and yet nothing will ever be quite the same. You will be eternally more aware of your interconnectedness. You will be so much more grateful for the quiet ones who have always served you and form the pillars of your society. You will be more tolerant of those you once judge as you witness them now, not in their roles, but in the very depths of their humanity. You will know forever what is of greater value in your lives. You will crave more touch, more depth, and more real connection. You will want to feel value and purpose in your lives.

Who do you wish to be when this pandemic is over? Ponder that dear ones and then start to become that person now, for even if you are in solitude and silence, you can always "be" when you cannot "do." You can always serve with your authentic light even if the service is a vibrational one of emanating your very own joy and peace.

We are proud of each and every one of you. Now is not the easiest time to be upon your planet earth. This event was not orchestrated by the heavens, nor was it caused by nefarious human beings. It was an attempt of other dimensional beings to stir up isolation and fear in order to survive. They are not succeeding dear ones. Your love does not allow them to posses your very beautiful human hearts.

You are emerging, not only as individuals, but as a race triumphant. Contemplate this - you, a cell in the body of the human race, are more important than ever now. Resolve to be the light that you are dear ones. Each of you is priceless, precious, and perfect in our eyes.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Hi Everyone,

The angel message nearly had me in tears. I felt the love emanating from them
as they dictated. Truly we are all so very loved. It feels good to sit in that love, breathe, and receive it as the angels have often recommended.

It used to be hard for me to be with myself.
I will never forget the first time I discovered the joys of solitude. I was in my thirties, had been recently dumped. and since I was working so much overtime I decided to take time off and go to Hawaii. I booked the flights and the room and set off on what looked like a glorious adventure.

It shocked me that the first two days it was nearly impossible to feel good. I wasn't lonely. I didn't feel sad. I just felt as if every moment I ought to be sharing all the beauty with someone else – as if it wasn't OK for me to take it all in for myself. It felt so eerily silent too. I was used to filling the time with talk, helping others, doing, doing – incessantly doing. Now I was alone, just "being," without goal or purpose other than to enjoy the day. I couldn't relax and wondered what was wrong with me.

Walking on the beach, it initially hit me, "I am allowed to enjoy life alone! It can be just as fulfilling. I can take in all of this beauty, just for me, whether or not there is someone else to share it with. I can enjoy time even if it isn't helping someone else. It isn't selfish! It is self-loving!" I realized that after I gave up my identify of being "smart and professional" when I quiet engineering, I created a new one of "always being there" for others. In that moment, my identity melted into something far simpler – I was just Ann, a woman enjoying her life. And that was enough.

I turned towards the sea, breathed in the salty air, and shut my eyes as the wind blew my hair into a tangled mess. Warm with sun, cool with the waves on my feet, and blessed with an ah-ha realization that it was OK to just "be" and to "just enjoy life," I opened my heart and allowed the energy of life itself to penetrate my entire being. Body and soul, I felt love beyond compare. The rest of the vacation was pure, unadulterated bliss. I have never been the same. I take great joy in silence and solitude now. These are the moments when I lose my small self, and dissolve into a sense of connection with all of life. Bliss.

Because of this quarantine has not been a challenge at all. I have great compassion, however for the many souls who are finding it difficult to suddenly slow down, and "be" with themselves or only those close. Solitude or limited social exposure coupled with feelings of "not being in control," can bring up both the best and the worst. We either draw forth a spiritual and emotional strength from within, or we fall into feelings of fear, anger frustration, and tantrums.

In any case, we must learn to "be" with ourselves now. There is no other choice for many.

This is a gift.

It is time to learn to "be" with ourselves and love ourselves, no matter what. It is time to embrace the hurt, angry, frustrated, and fearful children within. It is time to own your talents and share them as you can. It is time to take care of your own heart, and to dream. Dream of the futures you wish to create until you dream them into existence within so they can manifest in your outer life when things get moving.

In my work I've talked to many people who are finding time to start businesses, or dream them into being. I've talked to some who are enjoying time with family and others who are realizing that it is time to leave an unhealthy situation. I've talked to others who feel stir-crazy, bored, frustrated, fearful, and impatient. It seems that in our quarantine, we are seeing all that we have ignored within. It is time to make friends with both our light and our darkness.

Even though it is so hard for so many right now, it is a chance to look into our own hearts and discover more deeply what we find within. It is a chance to make peace with our less than loving vibrations, and to love them into the light. It is a chance to manifest, to learn, to connect in creative ways. It is precious time to spend feeling, healing, and creating. It will be over soon enough.

Why not make good use of it by asking ourselves the angels' questions: "Who will I be when this is over? How will I have grown? What improvements have I made inside of myself that will cause a happier resonance in my life in the future?"


Here are some pointers to assist...

1. Take time in silence and solitude to question

Even if you are at home with others, find time alone. Shut the door to a room. Go outside. Take a safe, socially distanced, masked walk. Breathe. Feel deeply. Ask yourself, "Who do I want to be when this is over? What habits do I want to change? How can I start to make those changes now?" Journal if you like. Get deeply acquainted with yourself, and assess yourself honestly, without judgment. What needs to change

2. Make small changes each day

At the beginning of each day promise yourself to make one small change to become the person you wish to be.

Suppose for example, you wish to be more confident sharing your gifts – writing, counseling, art, storytelling, branding, you name it. Challenge yourself to do so in a small way each day, perhaps with a friend, perhaps on social media, perhaps just practicing at home. Journal your progress.

Suppose you wish to change a habit – speaking more tenderly, walking taller, getting up and exercising, being more motivated. First research (Google) and read inspiring ways others have changed that habit, then challenge yourself to make small changes. Document progress.

Every day is a gift. Every day we can make small changes to become closer and closer to the person we wish to be.

3. Celebrate Success!

Reward yourself for making small changes. Compliment yourself. Be accountable to a friend or social media peers whom you've challenged to do the same. Journal or document progress. Take selfies of the "new you" and watch how you change. Every minor decision to be the person you want to become, is really a major shift in energy.


It is a rare and difficult time on earth. It is also a rare opportunity. I wish to come out of this more organized, balanced, and committed to my own self-care. Who do you wish to be? Time to start being that person now...


Love you all!
Ann

Recipe of the Week
QUARANTINE CREAMY, LIGHTLY BOOZY,
POSSIBLY GLUTEN FREE PASTA BAKE
Recipe of the Week

This is more of an idea - you can use a variety of ingredients based on what you have on hand...

Recipe of the Week
INGREDIENTS:

1 lb ground beef, chicken, turkey, or sausage 
(optional, skip for veggie version)

Olive oil or cooking oil

1 box pasta (I use Tolerant foods gluten free lentil penne)

1 1/2 c veggies, cooked - anything you like
I used broccoli, spinach, and mushrooms
You can use carrots, zuchhini or anything that 
sounds good in pasta sauce

4 cloves garlic minced, or garlic powder

2 T Italian herbs or a mix of pasta friendly herbs.
I like basil, oregano, and rosemary, 
but whatever you have works

1/4 c chopped onion or 3 T onion powder 

2 14 1/2-oz cans chopped tomatoes

1 small can tomato paste, if you have it 
(If not use more tomatoes)

1 c milk, cream, almond, oat milk, of any type 
that sounds good in pasta if you have it. If not
Use broth or water

1/2-3/4 c cheese - best is parmesan and/or mozzarella, but use what you’ve got

1/4 c leftover red wine or vodka! (Optional)


DIRECTIONS:

Make the pasta according to directions on the box. Drain and set aside.

Cook any veggies you might be using however you like, and set aside.

In a large pot over medium high, saute the meat in olive oil or any good cooking oil if you are using meat. Add herbs, garlic, and onion. If using fresh, sautéed till soft.

Dump in tomatoes and tomato paste. Dump in cooked green veggies and mushrooms if you are using them.  Dump in the milk, cream, etc. If you need to think it out slightly with some water or broth feel free. Dump I wine or vodka.

Bring to a boil and boil for a minute or two, uncovered then cover lower to a low simmer, and simmer for 20-30 minutes. The mixture should be chunky with enough liquid to keep everything a little wet - add water or broth if necessary (or more wine!)

Dump in pasta and mix well.

Put it all in a 13x9 casserole. Sprinkle with cheese - any cheese works but Italian style cheeses are best - parmesan and/or mozzarella.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Turn oven up to broil and broil for 4-5 minutes till cheese on top bubbles and very slightly browns.

Cool, eat. Lasts very well in the fridge, and freezes well after a night in the fridge.  Defrost again in fridge for a day.
