Butterflies & Beautiful Music

I LOVE my angels. They guide me in the "bigger things" in life – career decisions, help healing myself and others, and ways I can contribute to the world through joy while still earning a living!

They also guide me in things that appear to be "small" - helping me find items I need on sale, solve computer issues, telling me when to take my car into the shop, and this weekend sending me on yet another joyful and delightful adventure. To angels, joy is no small matter! It has great importance in our lives!

I have quite a few projects going on in my "spare time." However, when Sunday rolled around, I thought about taking a break late in the afternoon and going to the local butterfly garden... only after running a few errands.

You've heard the saying, "Tell God your plans and he'll laugh!" Some people hear this and think of a cruel, derisive. and judgmental God who mocks their plans. I know better :) Instead, Divine Love is laughing, saying, "You think that's good... I have so much better in store for you!"

I got the urge to drop all my plans and go to the butterfly garden immediately after lunch. So I tossed my camera and errand lists in the car and took off, trusting there was some reason I was going sooner rather than later.

Walking into the butterfly atrium is like walking out of our fast-paced, stressed-out society into a Garden of Eden. Mists filter through the sunlight, dripping into lush green plantings and flowers of every color reach for the sky. The delicate little creatures are drifting everywhere. They land on me, allow me to photograph them, and carry me away as I witness a collective dance of creation. That alone is enough to send me to heaven!

This weekend, there was more! Enchanting, beautiful music called to me from the back of the garden. I hadn't known that there would be live entertainment! To my great delight, I turned the corner and saw a duo playing Native American Flute, harp, guitar and the dijeridoo. I sat in front of them, shut my eyes, and starting dissolving into the Oneness. Vivid dreams of flying over forests and oceans carried me away as butterflies danced to the music overhead. I opened my eyes and was almost surprised to see people wandering around. I had forgotten where I was.

I shut my eyes again and began to pray for everyone I know and love, as well as the two creating these wonderful sounds. Another man sat down. He started raving about their music too. It was yet another divine synchronicity in the works. It ends up he founded a large retail chain that most of you would recognize. He "just happened" to be visiting. He started talking business with the musicians, and it appears they may have a wonderful partnership. I couldn't help but smile at the joy of seeing the universe working its magic.

We all tend to struggle too much when we have a goal. We were given these minds to help us get where our heart wants to go. But at times, we don't know what to do next. Never fear! The universe does. Always. Without exception.

I ran my errands on the way home, cooked dinner, did a newsletter, and have a full office day now to work on the website! Go God! Go angels... again!

Here are a few tips to help you out when you have a dream or goal and don't know what to do next, or when you're simply tired and losing steam...

1. First of all, remember from last week...
"If you can't change your situation, change your vibration!

We live in a world that responds to our energy. Most of us learned that if you're good you'll be rewarded and if you're bad you'll be punished. Things don't really work that way. We have free will. If you put out a loving vibration, you'll attract love. If you put out an energy that believes in your dreams, and anticipates them, you'll receive help to make them come true. If you put out a vibe that says, "I don't believe anything good will happen. Or I don't believe anything will come to me if I can't figure it out myself," the universe must by its very design, say "OK." 

Keep your energy in a loving, happy space, and when you cannot, at least love yourself enough to avoid judging the state you're in, then ask for help and comfort!

2. Listen to your heart! 

When you get the sudden urge to do something, call someone, or go somewhere, jump at it! Trust. You may not have a clue why. I have a dear client who is manifesting a relationship but is getting the very strong urge to go house hunting! I can't wait to see how this turns out. She knows, from years of listening to her guidance, to trust these things.

I didn't get invited to speak at big conferences way back because I contrived it. I got the urge to toss a manuscript I'd just finished in the car. That created a chain of events that led me to speaking at conferences that featured others such as Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, & James Van Praagh. Following the heart also led me to shift from that path and create more of my own seminars. It led to my Internet TV show... and then to take a break from filming. Guidance occurs in the moment. The heart may shift and change, but always for your joy and the greater good!

3. Prioritize your Joy!

This goes hand in hand with the first two points. Never ever wait for something in your life to change before you allow yourself to be happy. Don't put off your joy. Find even the tiniest shred you can. 

Even before you sell your house, you can be joyful in the one you're in. Even before you pay the bills you can feel the sun on your face. Even before you are totally healthy you can count your blessings. Even before you get the money to do what you love in a bigger way, you can do what you love now. You can always find a reason to be happy now if you're willing.

Life challenges us on this point but if you create joy now you attract more later.

When I had twisted intestines a few years ago, it was miserable. But instead of focusing on the pain, I focused on the fact that I could walk, breathe, listen to beautiful music, and be mildly amused by the fact that I looked like a baby walrus. As a result I healed quickly and without medical intervention.

When I had just quit engineering and became a psychic in the window of a local bookstore, I was terrified about money. Still, I made time to count my blessings, be grateful for every penny earned and more so the chance to help people, and challenged myself to find free things to enjoy... a habit that has filled my life with grace ever since.

And this weekend, in spite of massive amounts of work, I listened to the heart went for joy, and had a glorious experience that refilled my spirit.

There is a whole system of energy that we never learned about in school. There are angels who stand by waiting to help. Trust your hearts. Seek your joy. Get your vibration to match your desires... then watch the magic start to happen!

Love you all! 

Have a great week and if you'd like to hear music by the group I met in the butterfly garden, check out their site here! Nouveau Papillion means "New butterfly" and their motto translates into "In Peace we Fly"

Shut your eyes and dream your dreams. Then when you're done open them... "Heart what is next?" You'll know!

Change your vibration

So many times in my life I have done everything I know to do and have no clue what to do next. So, as the angels say, when I can't change my situation, I change my vibration!

A few weeks ago I was excited and happy to be gazing once again. Imagine my shock when I woke up the day prior with my face covered in hives! Big ones. Itchy, burning, nasty unsightly hives! I had no idea what to do or what was going on in my body. I didn't have a clue how to improve my situation, so I sat and improved my vibration.

It was scary to not know what was going on so suddenly in my body, but I knew better than to indulge in too much fear. So I felt the fear and flipped iit to excitement. They are viscerally the same thing. I started telling myself, "I'm so excited this is going to heal. I'm so excited I'm going to be able to gaze tomorrow. I can't wait for help. I know its coming. I pictured everything being OK by the next day." In that space of peacefully imagining the desired out come, mangoes popped into my head. Really.

For years I've given myself mango facials and loved them! But that was the only thing I had done on the day prior that seemed out of the ordinary. Come to think of it, last month when I did one I broke out in odd looking bumps the next day too. Could I be allergic, even though I'd been fine for years? I wasn't sure but I was getting the feeling that this was some really bad allergic reaction. I took some allergy medicine, talked to my immune system about appropriate responses, and gazed for myself. By the next day the hives had gone down so much you could barely see them on camera! The energy really worked its magic.

Still, I wanted to know more. So I envisioned that by the end of the week I would know the exact cause of the problem. Sure enough on Saturday at a channeling session given by my friend Summer Bacon, my name was picked to ask a question. The spirit that comes through Summer confirmed I had a nasty reaction to a chemical used to grow the mangoes faster than nature intended. No more mangoes for me, unless they're of known organic origin! And the cure - very easy - a lot of vitamin C to anti-oxidize the chemicals, and tons of water to flush it through my system! 

So when you don't have a clue what to do... here are a few tips to help you change your vibration so you can open up to miraculous help...

1. Don't Panic or Project Negative Outcomes

We humans seem to be wired for control, and when we can't control a situation many of us were programmed to automatically dive into fear and assume the worst. If you don't know how to change jobs you might assume you just have to suffer through it. If you're in a tough relationship you might assume your life will never get better. If you don't know how to pay a bill you might logically assume you will be in debt. If your not feeling well you might assume that you're going to feel bad for a certain length of time. "Oh no I have the flu, there goes this week...."

Try to stop yourself. Question your assumptionsTurn your fear into excitement and if you can't, fake it till you make it! "I'm so excited that I've got heavenly help! I'm so excited that I'm going to get my miracle. I'm so excited that even though I have no clue I'm creating a better situation..." You get the idea. Keep it up until you are excited and filled with faith.

2. Imagine the Best / Improve your Vibration

Now try to imagine what you'd like to happen, how you'd like to feel. For example, how would you like to feel in your dream job? What would it be like to have peace or peaceful separation in a difficult relationship? What would it be like to have this bill miraculously paid or be given a grace period. What would it be like to be healed within days... or whatever you might be able to imagine. Try to get into the feeling of it. This automatically starts to tune your energy field into the best possible outcome! So much better than tuning into the worst.

3. Remember when you don't know how... God does

I have seen unimaginable, miraculous solutions when people get their energy right. One dear client has lived for years on total faith without a steady job and her miracles never run out! Another didn't know how on earth she'd ever find peace with a soon to be ex, but she grew, improved her vibration and miraculously, the soon to be ex changed, grew, and the marriage was saved!

One of our dear "Ann & the Angels" viewers got her vibration right and started attracting enough ideas and help to pay off a nearly 90K student loan within months. Another got her vibration right and a good samaratin paid off thousands of dollars of back taxes on her house. You never know how your challenges might be solved... but God does!

So this week, remember...
When you can't change your situations, you can always change your vibration!

Your right to be

Last week, when the angels channeled the newsletter on challenging people, I was feeling great about how I handled some extremely nasty individuals with love and kindness, and without getting upset. As always there is more to learn...

A very kind woman insisted on giving me a healing treatment a few weeks ago. I didn't really feel a reason to accept, but she was so sweet and insistent that I caved in and got one. It was gentle, loving, and I got a few good reminders from it, but in truth, I can heal myself and I have other healers I resonate with far more. I thanked her and thought that was it.

When I ran into her again the following week, I was surprised when she started to insist that she was going to give me another treatment. It was a generous offer, but I had no desire or guidance to do this, so I politely declined.

She became even more insistent, kindly, but nonetheless completely disregarding my wishes. She told me that she was going to do this, that I needed to look at a lot more to heal my back, that I shouldn't be gazing, and that the way I perceived her energy was not the way I should be.

That was enough for me! I resisted the temptation to get into a match of egos. I didn't justifying my choice, tell her about my ability to heal myself, explain that people that were receiving miraculous healing through my gazing, or share my desire to work with other people with whom I resonate far more deeply. (My dear chiropractor fixed my back in one session later that week!). Instead I took a breath, shut my eyes, dropped into my heart, and found my truth once again. Again, I politely and respectfully declined her offer.

I couldn't believe it! She persisted in sweetly pushing her services on me and making me wrong! I took another breath, dropped into my heart, and very lovingly, but firmly said, "Please forgive me, but I'm going to listen to my own guidance and I am not going to be doing another treatment with you." She replied, "Oh there's not need for forgiveness, but..." and she went on. I stopped the conversation.

It was clear she could not accept my choice. "No," I said. "I am going to listen to my own guidance."I became the rock that wouldn't roll. She left. I did some deep breathing, drained my frustrations into the earth who uses that kind of energy to hold herself together and went on with my day.

I didn't hear from her for weeks. I thought we were done, but one day when I was feeling joyous, I got another phone message, "checking in" on me. I deleted it before I listened to the rest, asked my assistant to call, thank her and tell her I wouldn't be in contact. I don't have time in my life for people that can't accept me as I am, and she had clearly demonstrated a lack of respect for that.

What shocked me was how powerfully her call triggered an upset in me. I couldn't get the unpleasant discussion from several weeks ago out of my mind! Clearly I had something to look at here. There was a gift waiting to be found in all of this.
It isn't pleasant when people trigger us, but it can be a blessing in disguise. The more we see our "buttons" the quicker we can disable them, learn what is authentically going on inside of ourselves, and stand in our loving, authentic power.

I dove within. I realized I've learned to be calm, kind, and firm when people are mean and nasty. I have no problem setting clear boundaries with those who unkindly cross them. But with someone who is otherwise kind and likable, yet disrespectful of my choices, it is still hard for me to walk away.

Sometimes, the angels remind me, we have to walk away from someone else in order to honor ourselves. I realized that was the case here and I was uncomfortable doing it. I liked this woman. I respected her energy. Yet, I have no room in my life for people who don't honor my right to be.

I was simply uncomfortable having to choose between honoring myself and saying "no" to her, or saying "yes" to her and doing something that I clearly knew wasn't right for me. I choose to honor myself. She will have to deal with any disappointment that results and learn from it.

As I made peace with that, the hot button disappeared. I felt only love and gratitude for an educational dance that is over, at least on my end. Should I see this beautiful soul again I'll have no problem being lovingly honest once again. I know now that in the future, even if it is not comfortable, I'll have no problem walking away from those who can't respect my soul, my guidance for myself, and my choices. What a relief!

As the angels often remind me, you would not catch a rose and a tulip arguing that one should be more like the other! We all have our place in creation, some close, some far, but all valuable. Our job is to find out own place and stand in it clearly and lovingly :)

So here are a few tips to help you more authentically discover and live within your truth, even when it's not easy... 

1. If you feel upset or triggered, rather than blaming others, go within.

People trigger us. The news triggers us. Our own thoughts trigger us. I have a simple rule in my life. When I'm not happy, I know I'm not being 100% honest with myself somewhere. I journal all my feelings, stream of consciousness, until the truth bubbles up. 

Sometimes what I journal looks like highly evolved, conscious introspection. At other times I have an unholy rant, in my journal, in private, venting out what I don't truly mean and would never say to another person. I put a bubble of light around me, ask the angels to "compost and recycle" any negative energy, and let any hurt feelings fly into written words. 

Something magical happens when you stop censoring yourself and let your pain have a voice –  in private, in a way that hurts no one. Think of it as a highly evolved form of self love to admit you have negative feelings... and to have compassion for yourself as you allow them to naturally work themselves out. By all means if you can authentically shift to something more positive, do so! There are times, nonetheless, when we are not honestly there yet. This is when loving yourself through the upset has value. After ranting and venting in a private journal, truth emerges.

If you turn a crying or angry child away, they get even more upset, but if you pick them up, listen to them, and hold them, in that embrace of love, they start to settle down and move into a more peaceful loving reality. So too for the upset child within us.

2. Once you know your truth, right action becomes apparent

Once you know how you feel, you will know how you want to be treated, what you want to do, etc. Clarity comes from being intimate with yourself. Do what you know to do. Have the tough conversations without an agenda to get anyone to agree, with only an intent to say what is true for you in the kindest way possible. Or, just walk away. It is never our job to "educate" another who hasn't asked for the lesson. It is ok to just leave.

I once watched two innocent children interacting. One hit the other. The second one cried a bit then went to the first. "I don't like you. You were mean to me. I'm not going to play with you anymore." Therein lies truth, innocence, and love, because love does not lie. I can speak a tough truth lovingly now, if I'm put in that position again, without making anyone wrong... as factually and innocently as that little child.

3. If you share your heart with someone and they don't respect it, you know where you belong and where you don't

Years ago I was terribly frustrated with another woman who was trying to push healing treatments on me. I was trying to explain that she actually injured me in a prior treatment, but she wasn't listening at all. I was younger and didn't know what to do. I clammed up and got angry! I didn't know what to say! I went to the angels... "She wouldn't listen to me! What should I have said?" In true angel fashion they replied, "You should have told her, 'I don't feel you're listening to a thing I'm saying' and walked away! Simple, honest, and innocent.

More recently a man I do not know on Facebook sent me a picture of something that should not have been sent. I politely, bur firmly told him it was inappropriate and spam blocked him. "Was there a nicer way I could have handled that?" I asked the angels? "Nicer, no. But more honest yes! You could have been more authentic!" they lovingly chastised me. "How," I pleaded. "What should I have said?" Their reply sent me into fits of laughter. "You should have said, EW! That's disgusting!" Innocent as a child...

So this week do your best – and I will too – to return to that innocent state of childhood where we can say what we mean, deeply, authentically, without an agenda to get anyone to agree, but only a need to express the truth within! 

I'm diving even little deeper on this one, challenging myself to find any places where I still worry about what I say, and attempting to return to that state of holy innocence where we can all "be as little children and enter the kingdom of heaven!"

Guidance for now

For the last few years, I've been passionately creating "Ann & the Angels" shows. I've put in over 1500 hours, thousands of dollars, and all my heart. Karl at the station has done the same. We've been so inspired by the results. Each week viewers report miraculous help, angelic assistance,and transformations in their lives.

We were going strong, with no plans to stop any time soon... until a single remark made by someone unrelated to our daily activities – a remark I typically would have ignored – catalyzed me to stop, look in my heart and realize the quiet whispers were gently guiding me to shift directions.

"Stop filming new shows for now," the guidance said. My mind didn't want to hear that. I love everything about what we've created, and I love the angel energy while filming. I love the Wednesday night family of viewers. I love the idea of sharing everything I've learned with the world. I'm Aries and have a tendency to get going and keep going, regardless of sleep, effort, or conventional logic.

However guidance is dynamic and just as there seasons in nature those seasons exist in our lives as well.

After more sitting quietly and contemplating the whisper of guidance, I saw its wisdom. I have been going so strong that I've maintained only a delicate balance in life. I have 84 episodes of life-changing material available as video-on-demand right now, and other than letting you and my Facebook friends know, I haven't done a bit of marketing outside these circles. 

There is an entire world out there, with many people feeling alone and in pain, and I'm sitting on a video library of inexpensive material that could help bring heavenly love and assistance to those interested... but it is a well-kept secret! I could feel the angels breathing a sigh of relief when I started to understand that this wasn't the "end" of the show but rather a simple shift to help get the word out to more in need. I'll be able to modernize my own website to better serve you, and maybe even get going on other projects that many of you have asked for :)

I was concerned about disappointing Karl at the station, but as always God knows best. He's been updating their awesome new website and preparing to film the upcoming International Association for Near Death Studies Conference

I was afraid of disappointing my Wednesday viewer family, but I know God has wonderful things, or maybe just some rest, in mind for them too...

Here are a few tips to help you hear and understand your guidance this week... 

1. Guidance is dynamic and given in the moment

Just because you were guided to do something two days ago or two years ago or even two minutes ago, doesn't mean you are still being guided to continue. 

When something makes you feel "off" or "unhappy" sit and breathe and ask for your guidance for right now. Listen to your heart's subtle desires... in the moment, for the moment.

2. Guidance is often subtle and seems insignificant to the mind

We often want the one life-changing thing to be revealed. More often guidance is subtle. You have the urge to rest, relax, get going, do something, read something, go somewhere, etc. It just feels like a gentle desire, not a rip-roaring, "This will change your life" solution.

3. Guidance does not always seem related to your desires

I once asked the angels how to make more money. The answer was to forgive an ex-boyfriend. Many of you have heard this story. I argued until I understood that my energy was not in the right space to manifest anything until I let go of my own negativity and focus on this man's effect on my financial life! 

Sometimes I ask for guidance and all I get is the desire to get a cup of coffee. I love coffee! I slow down, sip, and relax... and in that space, I am ripe to receive greater assistance. It might not solve my challenges, but it gets me into an energy where I can receive greater help, assistance, and guidance!

So when you have a subtle urge, even if it seems unrelated to your goals, listen.

4. Guidance serves all souls involved... Even if you can't see it

Sometimes listening to your guidance means you will temporarily disappoint others, but you can trust you will serve their souls. I once had to turn down a man who wanted a reading immediately. I was already max'ed out and couldn't fit him in without exhausting myself. I had to disappoint him to listen to the subtle guidance saying, "no more today."  

A cancellation suddenly opened for him, up two weeks later. He arrived in tears of gratitude. His dad had passed without warning a few days earlier. Had he come on the original date he would have not been ready to hear it. Now, because of guidance and God's timing, he was able to hear from his dad in heaven and find peace. 

We will be re-streaming "Ann & the Angels - Series 1" on Wednesday nights later this year... stay tuned! I know the old website was a turn-off to many of you but the new one is easy to use and both live-streams and video on demand now exist on one modern site!

Or, if you can't wait... you can access all episodes of "Ann & the Angels" as video-on-demand now! When you buy a series on the new, easy-to-use site, you'll have unlimited access to watch it anytime, anywhere, with anyone you can fit around your computer or device! Learn more here...

Also I'm live-streaming free healing gazes this Wednesday on Facebook - see times in the ad above, in this newsletter.

Loving the angry

It has taken many years of working with angels to learn to love even the hateful souls. Just this week, an angry soul commented under my "Ann & the Angels Trailer" on YouTube that I "should do society a favor and kill myself." I was in such a loving mood after gazing that I responded with kindness. He retaliated with a suggestion that I get a "bo*%" job before I "kill myself." I sent him love, prayed for him, spam blocked him, and reported him to YouTube. And that was that. I felt only compassion for what must be a very miserable and hurting soul.

In my past this would have enraged me or, depending on the day, made me cry. We all want people to understand our loving hearts. We all want to connect with people in a loving way. We crave a meeting of minds and hearts, and peace between us. But some souls are not yet peaceful, nor are they ready for real connection or conversation. They seek only to share their pain by aiming it at others. We don't have to "dignify the darkness" as the angels say by stepping into that vibration. It really does feel better to love.

So how do you turn to love when someone is hateful or hurtful? I didn't get to this level of peace overnight! Some souls still find buttons I didn't know I had!

Here are a few things I find useful when someone aims any sort of angry or unkind behavior.

1. Be compassionate... With Yourself!

Ultimately the world's unkindness will not affect you. However, while I was still learning not to angry words personally, the unkind comments stung. The angels urged me to immediately counteract the "poison" by doing something nice for myself.

They urged me to tell myself I was a good person, or contact a friend who could do so. They even told me to get up and get a pedicure once! Admittedly, it was a superficial solution, but the loving kindness of the soul who worked on me was healing balm after some incredible insensitivity.

Humor works too. A psychic friend and I used to send each other unkind emails we received and jokingly add them to our virtual "hall of shame." When a friend was frivolously sued by someone with a last name that completely suited their hateful personality we rolled in fits of laughter until all the dark energy was gone and then we sent love to the offending party.

2. Burn off the Reactive Energy

If you find yourself going over and over an argument or unkind comment in your mind,you just have a lot of energy built up inside yourself in reaction to the event, and you need to burn it off

Journal the things you'd never say and don't really mean, then delete them, shred them, burn them or bury them.

If you are artistically inclined, do your art, create music, write dark poetry to get the energy out of your system. You never need to share this with anyone. It is for your own catharsis.

Alternately do vigorous exercise. . I used to do aerobic vacuuming... if someone upset me, at least I ended up with a sparkling clean house! Years ago when I was an innocent young twenty-something and found out my finance's friends had hired a stripper at a bachelor party, I rid the entire backyard of 3' tall tenacious tumbleweeds the following day :)

Do whatever you can to rid yourself of the reactive energy... preferably something constructive!

3. Pray 

Nothing helps remove the sting of an angry comment or argument quite like love.

Every time you think of the event or discussion, pray for the person who hurt you. Dear Divine Love, Dear God, Dear Angels, please uplift this wounded person's soul, please heal their hurting heart. Please remove any of the pain they triggered in me. Bring peace into my heart and theirs.

You'd be amazed how quickly this works if you keep it up :)

May peace fill our hearts and may we stand in our beautiful light rather than allowing the darkness to pull us into its illusions.
