Allowing miracles

I had a little scare last week... The night before I was scheduled to fly out to speak at the Academy of Spiritual and Consciousness studies conference, both of my arms broke out in a pretty unsightly rash. I wasn't stressed about the conference. I was all prepared and excited. The rash looked like a perfect pair of shackles around my wrists! It looked like really bad timing to be clearing out a past least to my limited way of thinking. Ends up it was perfect.

I prayed, "Should I cancel or go?" I already knew the answer. I was going and I would have to use every ounce of faith and focus not to have this spiral into one big mess. I wrapped my wrists in bandages with apple cider vinegar... then got on the airplane the next day. When I arrived I hiked a few miles from the hotel to the local grocers a few times to stock up with natural remedies and good food. (I now know how to make clean gourmet healthy meals in a hotel room!!)

I was blessed again. Braco was live streaming online the next day so I watched his gazes before the conference started. I felt the healing energy and knew everything would be OK. I saw the past life that was leaving. I put pride aside and wore bandages the first two days of the conference. By day 3 however – the day I was scheduled to speak and gaze – my arms were so healed you could barely tell I'd ever had a problem.

I know that if I had spiraled into fear, that rash would have covered me. I've had things like that happen before. I also know that this was my chance to take off the "shackles of fear" that had bound my mind in the past, and to truly free myself to be the creator we all are. I was shedding a past lifetime where I could not be freed, but one that had no bearing on my present life. Focusing on well-being, and having faith that I'd receive my miracle, was exactly what made the miracle possible. Needless to say I'm beyond grateful for the lesson!

I had a beautiful time at the conference too... I'll have to share more on that later, maybe next week!

For now, here are a few pointers to help you mentally deal with life's challenges.

1. As soon as you notice a fear, stop. Breathe. Focus on what you want.

Breathing helps you re-center and get out of fear long enough to start asking yourself an important question:

What if this problem or challenge was already solved?

What would you feel like? What would you be doing instead of fretting and worrying? How would you be enjoying your life. Really let your imagination go to the lighter side of the issue here. 

2. Sit. Breathe. Receive. Ask your angels to adjust your energy field to be consistent with your desired outcome.

The universe responds to our energy not our thoughts. I used every ounce of willpower to focus on clear skin and well being, then called on God, the angels, gazed with Braco and spent time in silence allowing myself, in my imagination, to feel vibrantly well. It really works.

I just heard from another dear soul who needed a car that she started focusing on having a new car and a family member offered to give her their old one - a used one, yes, but in fantastic condition with low miles. For free. This is the power of focusing your mind on the solution! 

3. Repeat & Take Action when Guided

Every time you feel yourself falling into fear or worry, repeat the process. It doesn't to take long but as the angels always say, getting your energy right is far more important than any activity we might take. 

In the energy of calmly expecting your desired outcome (or better!) you will receive inspiration and guidance when and where it is time to act.

If you like, take one life challenge you have right now and try the process all week. See what shifts. We are all "miracle makers in the making!"

You, me, & the cosmic pool

I don't think any of us have any idea how powerfully we can affect the mass consciousness with our peace, love, calm, and joy. Every now and then, however, something reminds us.

Years ago we had a big tornado cloud in Phoenix, Arizona, which is highly unusual. I looked out the window after work and the sky was pitch black. A friend who knew I didn't watch the news, called and told me breathlessly, "There's a tornado cloud two miles from your house! Turn on the news!" I stepped outside and saw a swirling mass forming in the sky. I flipped on the news and heard urgent warnings to take shelter. My heart started pounding. I had two dogs at the time and there was nowhere to go. I don't have a basement.

I went crazy, throwing everything I Design’t want to lose into the bathroom.  Five minutes later I was sitting there on the bathroom floor with my two dogs, six pillows, a flashlight, computer backups, purse, a raincoat, a change of clothes, and water bottles, when it dawned on me that if the tornado actually touched down I would be like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz flying through the air in my bathtub with all my worldly possessions and my two dogs swirling with me.

I could hear the urgency in the newscasters’ voices on television saying that the funnel clouds were dipping towards the ground.  As I froze in fear, heart pounding, I felt the angels all around me. They were insistent but kind,  “Ann, remember what you know about creating!”  I suddenly felt acutely embarrassed that I had fallen out of faith, into fear.

I focused on my breathing and became very peaceful and still inside.  I said loudly, “In the name of God and the Christ consciousness within, I command the clouds to rest easy, stay in the sky, and make sure there is no harm to person or property.”  I felt an intense peace come over me and ripple outward.

As soon as the prayer was uttered, heat and energy flooded through me with such intensity that I broke into a sweat that drenched my clothing and everything around me.  I felt as if a wildfire had burnt through me.  I had pure faith in that instant in God’s ability to work through me to calm the storm. I felt nothing but peace and a searing heat. Two minutes later, the newscasters announced the clouds were dissipating.  It was a powerful lesson for me in how our energy does indeed ripple outward.

There is a story Braco's helpers tell about a time when he gazed in New York city. Someone put a picture of him doing so on the huge display screen in Times Square. Millions of people saw it and subconsciously felt the peace. That day alone, the papers reported there was no crime in the city. One soul standing in a very great light created that much peace. Can you imagine if we all did?

Here are a few pointers to help you ripple waves of goodness into the fabric of humanity this week... and into your own life.

1. The next time you are around someone who is in chaos or drama, see if you can ripple peace
The angels taught me this technique. I use it often in my work to help calm people who are hurting, grieving, or upset. 

As you breathe imagine that there is a column of calm soothing light, like the peaceful eye of a hurricane, running up your spine to the heavens and deep into the earth. No matter what the person or people around you are doing, breathe in the peace and solidity that this column of light creates. 

Then imagine the light expanding outward – a beautiful peaceful light that embraces all around you. Imagine this light soothing them, calming their chaos and helping them feel loved. With every breath allow waves of this peace to wash through you out into the room around.

Try it in a crowd sometime among strangers or when you are next to someone upset on their cell phone. See what happens.

2. When you are happy, peaceful, feel abundant, calm, or inspired, share those waves!

If you feel something positive in your own life, take a moment. Breathe and feel the feeling very deeply. As you breathe out imagine sending a wave of this beautiful energy rippling outward into the world! You just sent a vibrational gift to humanity.

3. Use the Swimming Pool visualization to help someone you love

If you are concerned about someone, imagine them in a pool next to you. Imagine what type of waves they are sending out, and imagine what type of waves you could send to help them.

Maybe they're depressed and you want to send them little effervescent bubbles of joy to tickle them kindly back into life. Maybe they are angry and splashing violently and you want to send them peaceful and calm waves. Maybe they're drowning in self loathing and you want to send deep powerful waves of love beneath the surface to buoy them up once again. Use this metaphor to see both their energy and to figure out what type of energy you wish to send them. Just by using your intent and imagination you are.

For example I had someone write me very panic'd about a life situation. She felt like a drowning swimmer clinging to my energy. I imagined sending her waves of calm and picturing her buoyed and floating effortlessly. She wrote me a few minutes later to say she felt better.

So many people I talk to want to do more for the world. Sometimes we don't have the money, time, or strength. However we all have a few moments a day to put beautiful loving ripples into the cosmic pool!

Don't worry....

I didn't worry about much in life until my false life fell apart and I started living my real life! When I was an engineer, married, with a nice house and two dogs, life was pretty easy. I was doing what everyone expected of me and had a lot of support. Then I figured out who I really was. I got divorced, quit my job, became psychic in the window, and

All my external "crutches" were taken away. I had to start to generate my security from within. For the first time I didn't know how to "control" my life, and as a result, I worried about everything! I worried about whether or not I messed up my entire life. I worried about the friends I had lost and whether I'd ever be loved. I worried about my former husband and dogs. I worried about money. I worried about my clients. It was insanity and it hurt.

Little by little the angels guided me to learn to manifest, and to focus on what I wanted rather than on everything I thought I did wrong and everything I thought could go wrong.

Little by little things started to go right. I started to imagine the best instead of the worst. My business picked up. I travelled and found great joy, new friendships, and peace in my heat. I started to focus on people I cared about being happy and healthy. Not everyone stepped into those beautiful "energetic blueprint" as the angels call it, but I felt better, more empowered, and like I was giving all I could to assist.

Now I rarely worry about life's challenges. I know that either they will be solved as I am picturing them or in a better way. I know I'm loved, supported, and cared for by the universe. We all are. We just have to get our energy attuned to that love so we stop blocking it. The angels like to say, "God wants to pour a river of love into your life but your hand is on the faucet." When I have a financial challenge, I smile knowing God will come up with a solution or I'll have a bill to pay. When I have a health challenge, I embrace its lesson and picture myself well. When I see someone I love doing something self-destructive or in pain, I picture them feeling gloriously well.

Jesus, the yogis, and other spiritual masters have the ability to create miraculous healing because they picture the well-being and divine light of a person more strongly than the person pictures their illness.

Can you imagine a faith so solid it can "see beyond the illusions and appearances of pain and suffering in this material world, and instead see the truth of an abundant and glowing soul so strongly that this truth appears? I have achieved this a few times with clients, and am working on becoming stronger in my ability so I can help more people. We all can :)

Here are a few pointers to help you kick the worry habit and embrace your soul's power to create a better outcome...

1. Turn every worry into a prayer and a powerful manifestation

Every time you catch yourself helplessly engaged in the worry habit, stop. Flip it. Find the love and the desire underneath it. Then pray. Picture the outcome you'd prefer. Imagine your bills paid, the world at peace, your loved ones happy and healthy.

This is how I've healed my body numerous times when very ill - I've pictured and remembered feeling good more strongly than I felt bad. It led to the guidance and solutions to fix problems that could have helped me into heaven otherwise!

2. Instead of telling others you worry about them, tell them how much you care

There is a bad habit in humanity of thinking others will feel your love if you tell them "you are worried about them." Instead most of the time it is annoying. It basically says, "I don't have faith in you. I want you to change so I feel better." Of course that's not what we want to convey!

So instead of saying, "I'm worried about your health," say, "I love you! I am picturing you radiantly happy and healthy! I don't know how but I trust. I have faith in you and faith in God." That feels like love to your loved ones. They'll listen to your suggestions more easily. They'll be inspired. They'll feel your heart and care.

3. Embrace "not being in control"

I like to joke that it came as a shock to me that I don't run the universe and everyone else's life. We sometimes get so worked up because we want things to look a certain way and if they don't we're afraid horrible things will happen. In reality the Creator wants a much more loving reality for all of us! our idea of a solution might just not be the one another soul needs to grow, or might not be the best.

Its fine to envision the outcome you want, to pray for and intend it, but always remember to add, "this or better." Thank GOD I don't run the universe! Or you :) We have only a fractional understanding of the greater good. So when you worry, by all means intend what you want, but always leave room for better!

Surrendering control is not giving up on your desires but rather allowing room for something better. 

I wish you all a worry free week, or if you're not there yet at least a week of working to kick the worry habit.

$A Symbol of love

Many of you have heard this. I quit a lucrative career in engineering on guidance.Within a year had a job as "psychic in the window" at a local bookstore. If I was lucky I made $6 after taxes on a good day. I worked on the slowest day of the week, since I was the newest psychic there. It was, honestly, very frightening! My savings was going down and not much was coming in.

I prayed for money. Instead of sending me more clients, the angels taught me how to shift my energy... and therefore shifted my capacity to receive and allow for the Love that wanted to circulate through my life and work.

I didn't work harder, advertise, or get a second job. Instead I listened to the angels advice. I advertised on the "inner net" and focused on gratitude.

Every morning the angels told me to sit and feel how wonderful it felt to do something I loved. It was true. I loved talking to angels. I sat and thought about the love until my heart was filled with gratitude. Then they instructed me to imagine beaming that light out in all directions - like rays of sun, and simply to say, "If my work can help you and you'll honor the exchange, please find me." That was it. That was my "advertising."

After each client, the angels told me to give thanks for the ability to help someone and make it clear I was ready to serve more. So after each client I prayed, "Dear God thank you so much for giving me work I love that can help others! I'm ready to serve more." Another person would walk in a few minutes later.

People started walking into the bookstore on the slowest day of the week. Soon I was booked and my day became the busiest day of the week. When another psychic left I was given another day to work. That day started to book up in advance too! When the bookstore closed three years later, I had such a large base of clients I was able to survive on my own.

I now understand that praying for money is useless. The soul doesn't care about money. It cares about experience. Focus on the experience you want, the joy you will feel, the gratitude for what you already have, and absolute miracles can happen!

Here are a few pointers to help you make money a symbol of love, rather than a symbol for fear... and therefore keep it flowing in your life!

1. Give thanks for all you do have

The angels say, "A Grateful Heart is Always Full" and feeling this fullness puts you in a very abundant vibration. 
A few weeks ago I took my 1998 car into the shop. This year she needed some very expensive repairs, but I love her and it is still less expensive for me to maintain her than buy a new one. However, I had just paid for a trip to donate my time and speak at an conference. I had just helped a friend. So it was a bit of a stretch at this time!

Nonetheless, after seeing so many miracles, I knew everything would be fine. I gave thanks for a car that has been so dependable, for a great mechanic, for the ability to sit in air conditioning while it was being fixed, for the Internet which gave me the ability to work, for my health, safety, etc...

I went home and several clients who had been behind in paying me, all of the sudden – that day – had paid me. I hadn't asked! A credit card suddenly announced some money back. People were suddenly generous. The bill was nearly all paid off within weeks, without me doing a thing other than keeping my energy in the vibration of abundance. Gratitude is the key...

2. Remember... The Power that Creates Universes Can Manage Your Life!

That statement always makes me roll with laughter! How is it we believe the creator can make our lungs breathe, our heart beat, coordinate the stars in the heavens, turn the seasons, move the tides... and yet we stress out that God can't or won't help us pay a bill? It's absurd to be afraid when you actually think like this and yet most of us were trained to worry!

One of the "Ann & the Angels" show viewers had some seriously large back taxes to be paid on her home. She was watching the manifesting series (2) and got into the vibration of faith. She mentioned her faith that she'd receive help to a friend. The friend was so impressed she was connected with a generous donor who paid her back taxes! This is how God works!

All things are possible with the infinite. Don't limit the Divine. When you don't know how, Source does.

3. Don't Plug Up God's arteries...

If you have money and you want something you can afford, enjoy it! No guilt, no shame, no worry about "what if I don't have more later!" You don't want to clog up God's arteries by letting fear pinch off the flow of abundance in your life. When you genuinely get something you want, you feel happy. You celebrate. You give thanks for your abundance... and that puts you in a vibration to attract more!

Every time I pay a bill, I say, "Thank you God. I'm ready for more." Every time I get something I like I say, "Thank you God for the abundance you have blessed me with."

I am not rich in the world's sense. I still work with clients every week, so I can pay the bills and give away all I do for free. But I live in a flow wherein I get what I need and give what God wants, realizing I don't have to worry about money, but rather can trust that I am only a conduit for love. I receive. I give, and in that flow everything is cared for.

Have a blessed, grateful, and abundant week... starting in your own heart!

Love you all!

PS - If you want a "guided tour" into heavenly abundance, Series 6 of Ann & the Angels is a 12-episode series, available as video-on-demand, that takes you step by step into this mindset. In just half an hour a week and a few minutes a day you can shift your energy and shift your whole relationship w/money, abundance, and how to attract it into your life! More info here.

Conscious Breathing...

Sometimes I sit down to channel the weekly newsletter with an idea of what I'd like to talk about and the angels come through with something entirely different. Sometimes I overlook the obvious. Breathing seems so natural and easy, right? But in reality most of us don't breathe deeply, or consciously.

Conscious breathing has come in very handy for me lately. I've been sleeping deeply, having fascinating dreams, and waking up happy. However, within a few seconds of opening my eyes, I start to feel a very anxious and unpleasant vibration in my my body as I re-enter the earth's frequencies. If I had no resistance to the fear and anxiety on the earth, I'd move right through it and quickly back into bliss. Eventually I won't even feel it at all. But I'm not there yet. I'm working on deeper levels of surrender at all times, and striving to live in deeper levels of love... for everything.

That being the case, I don't like feeling this staticky, unpleasant energy. So, for now, I sit up, breathe, surrender to the angels and the light that rides in on the breath, and once again feel heaven. Within minutes of surrendering to the breath, I am tuned back into bliss, feel awesome, and am able to get on with my happy day! Maybe someday I'll breath so deeply at all times that I won't even feel the static. I'm working on it! 

For now conscious breath is an elixir that cleanses my energy, enlivens my cells, and fills me with an enthusiastic energy for life.

In the surrender to a conscious breath, absolute miracles can take place. 

Yoga and meditation instructors have taught this for years. Nonetheless, I think we all need reminders. It's all too easy to get caught up in the world's energies these days. Happily it is also easy to breathe and find heaven once again!

Here are a few pointers to help you breathe easily this week!

1. When you first wake up take a few deep conscious breaths
Before you even get out of bed, sit up. Ask your angels for help with anything you need that day, even if you simply want a loving, grace guided joyful day. 

Then breathe in deeply. Know you are breathing in all the loving energies that you need to help adjust your energy to match your prayers. Hold the breath for a few seconds and imaging it lighting up every cell, lighting up your aura, enlivening you. Feel its energy and love. Then exhale gently and repeat a few more times. 

Allow the conscious breathing to fill you with love and energy for your day! 

2. When someone, or life, upsets you... Breathe the breath of peace

This one sounds obvious, but we don't always do it. When someone cuts you off in traffic, says something unkind, or upsetting... breathe. When you get that email asking you to do "just one more thing," breathe. When you stumble upon bad news, breathe. When you think about something painful or upsetting... breathe.

In all of those cases, slow down. Take a deep breath in, intending to breathe in peace and reassurance that everything is all in divine order. Hold that breathe of peace. Now exhale and know that any anxious of chaotic energies are leaving. You might see it in your mind's eyes like white light flowing into you and fuzzy static flowing out of you. Repeat a few times. 

The breath of peace gifts you with not only peace, but also with a clear perspective on what to do next. 

3. Before Bed, Breathe in Your Day

No matter whether your day was pleasant or not, breathe it in for cleansing. Imagine you are inhaling the energy of your entire day. Hold the breath for a few seconds allowing the natural systems in the body and aura to take in what is good and sort out what is not useful. Now exhale. You are releasing all that is not helpful.

Breathing in your day allows you to benefit from the loving frequencies and clear out the rest. 

Doing this a few times will help you sleep more deeply without all that static bouncing around inside of you! 

Breath is such a powerful, but under-utilized form of receiving love, releasing undesirable energy, and self-healing. Use it consciously this week and see how you feel!

Healing anger

The angels told me that they had a hard time convincing me to come to earth. They said I argued that it was too angry a place for an enlightened soul. Obviously I wasn’t so enlightened as I thought, and had something to learn because I once here again, that I discovered that carried a lot of anger towards the angry and unkind souls.

It took many years for me to realize that my anger at others was only anger at myself.

In my thirties I dated a man I didn’t love. I had been cheated on and dumped by his best friend when he swooped in, professing his love for me and trying to convince me he was the one. I felt a sense of revulsion, not because he was a horrible person, but rather, because my stomach knew right away this wasn’t right for me.

Nonetheless he was kind and insistent, and even though knew better, and had even been sneaking around Sedona trying to avoid him, he persisted and wore me down. I was needy and desperate for love at the time, and I started dating him in the hopes that I’d develop more feeling if I just "gave him a chance." Looking back I was insane! I didn’t realize it at the time.

Needless to say my feelings had been right. Hi true nature was kind, but he was also angry. He had been abused by his father, had a mother who drank too much and as a result became extremely verbally abusive and violent without much provocation. I stayed with him three years hoping I could change him, help him, or convince him to be his true loving self. All the while I grew angrier and more unkind in my own words and thoughts.

I thought I was angry with him. The angels lovingly pointed out that I was angry at myself for once again betraying my own heart and guidance. I was angry at myself for getting into this relationship in the first place, and angry for staying much longer than it was loving to myself, to stay. It was hard to hear, but they were right.

Since that time I have only been that angry once – when the unkind spiritual soul was attacking me over the past few years. I started going down a path of deep upset and knew it wasn’t where I wanted to be. I prayed and the angels showed me that once again I was angry with myself for “letting someone get to me” that crazily. I was angry because I fell into a fear that allowed the energy of attack. Amazingly, when I rid myself of my fears, and therefore no longer allowed spiritual attacks to come at me, I felt only love and compassion for the hurting soul who had delivered them.

It can be very hard to embrace that our anger at others is really a deeper anger at ourselves. We live in a culture that easily supports blame and shame. Political campaigns are built on it, Reality shows thrive on it. The news feeds us this reality every day.

However, if you want spiritual freedom, it is incredibly, powerfully freeing to take responsibility for our own feelings and to take back our God-given power to be happy.

Here are a few tips to help you escape the blame and shame reality and once again find yourself, as the angels say, living in the “image and likeness of love.”

1. Allow yourself a moment of righteous anger & let it point you to a greater truth

Always start where you are authentically at. If something upsets you acknowledge your feelings. Own them, but then just as quickly shift them to what you want. For example:

"I'm upset people drive like crazy. I want to be safe." "I'm upset that this person lied about me. I want people to know who I really am." "I'm upset that my ex doesnt' take any responsibilty. I want help raising my family." "I'm enraged that people abuse animals! I want people to be kind. I want everyone to know they have souls." "I can't stand prejudice! I want the world to know we are all equal."

You get the idea. Own your upset, then shift quickly towards the kinder reality you desire... without asking the other person to change.

2. Set a healthy boundary if you need to

Sometimes behaviors do not belong in your life. Decide what you will permit and communicate clearly. Then enforce your boundary.

I have a "three strike policy." I communicate kindly first, firmly second, and if the person still doesn't honor my boundaries, then I use silence or my heatlhy behavior to enforce it.

If someone speaks unkindly you may have to say, “I care about what you have to say but we’ll wait to talk until you can do so kindly,” and walk away or remain silent. Mean it. Enforce your boundaries with behavior rather than insisting others change. Actions speak louder than words and silence speaks louder than actions.

I once had to tell a former friend I could no longer be in her life because she had really started acting crazily and I couldn't support her chaotic and unbalanced reality. She needed professional help. I told her kindly once that I would no longer be in contact. When she ignored me I told her firmly the second time. The third time I blocked her calls and emails and ignored her. It was horribly hard and felt unkind but the angels lovingly reminded me that being healthy is not unkind.

2.Remind yourself – the unkind are wounded

Next time someone acts badly around you, say to his or her soul (telepathically perhaps), “I am sorry you are hurting but I'm not taking on, or dancing with, your pain.”

This immediately diffuses the anger and returns you to compassion, where you feel the truth of your own loving soul. It also gives you permission not to "do the crazy dance" of engaging with them in their angry or wounded state.

While I will help anyone honestly seeking to improve themselves, I no longer permit people to aim their unkindness and dysfunction at me. There is a world of difference between helping someone who wants help and being a punching bag for someone who simply wants to diffuse their pain.

4. Allow your light to possess the darkness

I will never forget when I was afraid of someone’s bad behavior the angels said, “Ann why do you let their darkness possess your light! Allow your light to possess their darkness!”

Now when people are aiming something nasty towards me – anger, ill will, manipulative energy etc. I just imagine my light filling my body and spilling into my aura and burning up any darkness, just like a bug zapper! 

This technique works to diffuse any unkind or unhealthy energy that is aimed at you whether it be anger, ill will, chem trails, etc.

While I’m not perfect at these techniques yet, the more I practice them, the more I allow myself to be the loving, joyful soul that I truly am. In that reality I can do far more good in the world and help those willing to receive. You can too!

Blessing in disguise

A few weeks ago I enjoyed a glorious 8 mile hike. I didn't quite stay on the path! A few days later, a perfectly heart shaped patch of poison oak rash appeared on my leg. It was a blessing in disguise.

Of course, I didn’t see it as a blessing immediately! Instead I started to berate myself. "Why can’t you pay more attention when you get happy! You know you’ve been going through a detox. You should have been more careful…” On and on I went until I caught myself in an uncharacteristic litany of self criticism and started laughing. Enough!

I shifted my thinking immediately. “Its really not that big. Most of my skin is nice and clear. This too shall pass. And look, it’s cute! What are the odds it looks like a heart? Ok God, I want a miracle healing. I don’t want to itch and suffer for three weeks, and I want to know what to do right now!” I allowed myself my feelings, shifted my thoughts, and awaited guidance.

A phrase popped in my head and I googled it. Lo and behold, I found a natural remedy I had forgotten all about. Within a day the itching stopped and within three days the rash was almost gone. Here's the blessing part. While googling the cure for the poison oak, I ran across an ad for liver pills. I had never heard of and had no reason to pay attention. Nonetheless, something made me take note.

Feeling better I started to celebrate and reaffirm my intentions, “I have pure and clear skin. Every new cell that grows in my body grows with the imprint of Divine perfection.” A day later I went into an extreme allergic reaction. I wanted to cry. “Enough God! I know I’m detoxing, but really? Fix me. Now. What do I need to do?” I started to sit and breathe and receive my angels’ love…

Suddenly those liver pills popped into my head. That was my answer! I was having all these reactions because my body was clearing old frequencies from this and past lives, and it was more than my little liver could handle. That explained why I had suddenly lost my taste for meat a few days prior, and was craving only clean vegetarian food. The universe wanted to make sure I got the message. Within seconds an email came in from a dear client with “more” and “liver” in her name!

I got the supplements, gave my body what it wanted and the allergy was gone in a day. I feel amazing. It was a miraculous shift. That little heart-shaped patch of poison oak was indeed a blessing in disguise! And now, every new cell is indeed growing in Divine Perfection!

Here are a few pointers to help you feel your feelings and then shift to better...

1. Don’t stuff your feelings

At least once a day, take the time to check in with yourself and note what you are feeling. If you need to, you can share your feelings with your angels in private, in a journal, or out loud. You can sit in quiet contemplation before bed. Simply acknowledge, “I am joyous. I am anxious. I am sad. I am upset.” Your feelings won’t kill you and you will experience far greater relief if you can face them, rather than stuffing them or avoiding them in anxious or addictive behaviors.

If you have a sudden burst of emotion due to an event, condition, or someone’s behavior, try not to take it out on anyone else! Instead talk to the angels, journal, or take a brisk walk. Move the energy in a healthy… don’t aim it!

2. Focus on what is already good and beautiful in your life

Problem situations are often like splinters. They may be small compared to all the good in our lives, but they feel like one huge irritation. See if you can focus back on all that is good. This puts things in perspective. 

When I got poison oak I focused on the rest of my skin that was clear! When the allergy hit, I thanked God for bringing the need to eat clean and take supplements to my attention to support my overall well-being. Even clients who have had huge lawsuits have conquered their thoughts by focusing on their beautiful homes, family, and quality of life. Suddenly what was once an all consuming irritation was put in perspective… and in this new vibration… they won.

3. Figure out what you want next… pray for it & focus your intention

Now you can pray. “Dear God thank you for my beautiful life!” “Dear God, fill my mind with your peace and comfort.” “Dear God, bring me inspiration and help me find joy once again.” “Dear God I’m so angry I don’t know what to do. Show me where I need to make changes in my thoughts or behaviors.” By simply admitting your feelings to yourself, you will know what your heart authentically wants. By finding your heart, you’ll know what positive things you are seeking. This is an act of self love, and it will help to shift your vibration.

Then, do your part by focusing on what you want to create more than what you don’t! 

By keeping the energy moving in such a fashion, you will weather your challenges with grace. You will purge the emotions that no longer serve you and through your prayers, start to think more loving thoughts, and then be guided to make changes so your life becomes more joyful.

Freedom from fear

Years ago I was laying by the pool at my apartment complex, when a man started talking to me. I could feel my stomach tighten. He was being pleasant enough at first, but something felt very wrong. He asked what I did for a living. “I’m a spiritual teacher” I replied. His face suddenly turned beet red. His jaw tensed. His throat bulged as he hissed at me,“Spiritual???” “My EX-WIFE thought she was spiritual. I studied under..." and then he named some guru, continued to curse his ex-wife and made fun of me.

The conversation took a bad turn as he started to make inappropriate and lewd comments. I wrapped my beach towel around my me, and as calmly as possible, excused myself. He shouted after me as I left the pool. For months he harassed me. He seemed to appear out of nowhere, hurling angry, nasty remarks at me nearly every time I left my apartment. He terrified me.

I prayed for him to go away or to stop. I begged God to help me. Crying one night I begged the angels for help, “Why is he being so mean! I didn’t do anything! I’m a good person! I help people!” The answer was lovingly honest. "Misery loves company. He upsets you and feeds off your fear. If you had no fear, he’d have no food for his anger. He is showing you those areas deep in your soul where you don’t trust God to protect you. Stand in your light and all of this will stop.”

I felt their truth and their love. I knew they were right. He was feeding off my fears. I knew I had to trust God and get back to a loving state or else this lesson would keep appearing – if not in the form of this man, then in another.

The next day he and a friend started making their usual unkind comments. I felt the strong presence of angels around me. I ignored the two of them and walked past calmly. The friend yelled out, “You’re a real B-TCH.” They started laughing. Then, in answer to my prayers, the loving power of God possessed me.

I stopped, calmly walked back to face them and looked them in the eye. For the first time I truly saw them. They weren't monsters. They were terrified little boys in big angry bodies. I saw the pain that possessed them. They were men who felt like failures with women, and only by attacking me and making me more fearful, could they feel any semblance of power. Their fear had helped me see my own.

Compassion washed over me, and the strength of Archangel Michael. Softly and kindly I said, while still maintaining eye contact, “Actually I’m a really good person. I help people every day. I donate a lot of my time to helping those who are wounded and in grief. If your friend were kinder, I wouldn’t seem like such a B*TCH to you.” Silence. Gazing into their eyes with God’s love and truth I felt compassion rush through me again. They looked downward, as their souls recognized truth. I walked away. They never bothered me again. I prayed that they might find peace.

Here are a few pointers to help you look in the mirrors of life this week

1. Choose a few things, or some people you admire, and acknowledge their qualities in yourself

What you admire in others lives within you. Do you love the softness of a blanket that comforts you? Maybe you have a soft sweet side that needs comfort, or maybe you are a comfort for others. Do you like fast cars or the wind against your face? Maybe you like the sensation of movement and change. Do you admire someone in public? Why? Those qualities live within you too.

You'll see the beauty, grace, and goodness within yourself by looking in the beautiful mirrors of life. 

2. When someone upsets you ask yourself, "In any way – small or large – where I am treating myself the way they are treating me?"

If you are bothered by an angry person, ask yourself, "Am I angry at myself, perhaps because I can't find a nice way to interact with them or change them? Have I been unkind to myself at all? Do I push away my own anger and judge it or do I have compassion for myself when I'm upset?" Do a little soul level digging and see what you find. If there were no anger within you at all, you still might not like their behavior, but it would no longer create an emotional charge.

Say someone has lied to you. None of us would like that. However, if it creates great upset, ask yourself, "Is there any area in my life where I have been lying to myself?" I was once horribly upset with someone who lied to me and cheated. My self-lie and self-betrayal, was that I was ignoring my own heart. I knew they weren't being honest and I didn't want to look at that. I was trying to tell myself everything was ok, when I clearly felt differently. I was lying to, and betraying, myself.

You might never like the behavior but when you are healed of anything that resonates with it, there will be little to no emotional charge. 

3. If you need help, ask your angels for insight

Simply ask. Enjoy your day and trust they'll get the answer to you somehow. They might have someone else give you the insight. It might pop in your head, or you might flip open a book and find the answer. There are many ways they will work with you.

These are advanced lessons. It is often awe-inspiring and humbling to see your own beauty and grace in the mirrors of life. It is often incredibly difficult to focus on yourself when you don’t like the behaviors of another. Nonetheless, it is the most powerful way to create lasting change in your mind and heart.

Peace amidst chaos

Several weeks ago Archangel Michael popped into my energy field. I felt his beautiful strength, a searing yet comfortable heat, and an incredibly powerful energy running up my spine. Shutting my eyes, I ignored the housework and began to bliss out in the exquisite embrace of his love. That didn't last long! He interrupted my reverie with an urgent request. "Gaze! Now! We need you. Now!" His words were compelling. I dropped everything, ran to the mirror, and surrendered to the Love that comes through when I gaze.

The power of this Love gripped me in an ecstatic force field. For a brief moment I saw my own eyes glowing surreally, while gold and white light emanated from my physical form. In seconds, everything went white. I was no longer conscious of the mirror, the room, my body, or anything else that had previously surrounded me.

I found myself in a spiritual dimension with the angels, amidst a scene of absolute pandemonium on earth. People were screaming and running in a scene of catastrophe surrounded by old stone buildings. We were invisible to them. I was working with the angels to help some who were fatally injured transition out of their bodies and go into the light. The indescribable peace and welcoming love of the light was in stark contrast to the pain and fear on earth. Those coming "home" were carried into bliss. Those on earth looked terrified. Both the survivors, and those who had passed, were being lovingly tended to by angels.

Suddenly, I was popped back into my body, feeling strangely wonderful in spite of what I'd seen.  The love I'd experienced was profound. I had no clue what just happened. I wrote to a friend about my experience the next day, and we both got chills, when she told me about the chemical weapons attack on Syria occurred at the same time I got "the call." I looked up photos on the web and got more chills. It was the town I had seen while out of body. 

I prayed fervently and asked why I'd been part of this. "Because you volunteered," came the answer. I must have done so in my sleep. I don't remember, but people on the other side tell me I help them transition. Up to this point I had never been conscious of the experience. Usually when I get the "angel call" I lay down and wake up hours later, feeling really out of it, without a clue where I've been.

The angels told me I had finally reached a point where I could see the chaos and fear and not be drawn into it, where I could feel only heaven's love in the midst of panic. They were right. I could not have witnessed such things in my past. It would have devastated me. All I could feel now was gratitude for the magnitude of the love I had witnessed, and for the tenderness of the angels ministering to humanity in the face of their pain and misunderstanding. All I could feel was love.

have worked very hard in this job over the past two decades to avoid being sucked into the earth's fear and chaos. I have learned how to get myself back in alignment with love when I fall out of that space.  It is an ongoing discipline, but it is possible. Far from being uncaring, it enables me to care more. Far from being irresponsible, it allows me to respond to the calls from spirit more. 

We are responsible to Love alone. I work diligently to choose thoughts of love and joy, even as I focus on the world's pain. I listen to my heart far more often than what my head might try to dictate, and in this space, even with a world in total turmoil, I am in joy and can be a vibrational contribution to the solution rather than contributing to the mess.

Even in very practical matters, your peace and joy allow the heavens to help you more easily create positive changes in your life. 

Here are a few pointers to help you master the mind, connect with the Divine, and listen to the heart, so you can be a force of love in the world rather than a contributor to its fear and chaos:

1. Work to master your thoughts
This isn't easy. Think of it as an exercise program for your mind. If you were to begin lifting weights, you might lift only the lightest ones, and only a few times. Try, each time you catch yourself thinking something that does not make you happy, to think of something better that does make you feel good. 

For example, if you think of the chaos in the world, try to also see the fact that people are growing, or be thankful for peace in your own life. If you think of a financial fear, give thanks for all you do have. If you think of someone you don't like, be grateful for all the ones you do. You get the idea. Do your utmost to shift your thinking towards better thoughts, better feelings, more productive ideas... rather than rehashing the ones that make you feel bad. 

This takes time, practice, since the brain biologically soft-wires along well frequented thought-paths. However, over time, you can rewire yourself along better thought-paths to focus more on the feelings you want for yourself... and the world.

This mastery of the mind is the point of many of the worlds meditation traditions, and spiritual disciplines. Pray, practice gratitude, focus on what you do want rather than what you don't... anything to focus the mind on something more loving. 

This will not make you insensitive to the world's pain, nor is it living in "denial' as we like to say, but rather it gives you the strength to deal with life in a constructive manner. You are denying only the illusion that we are separate from love. You are seeking to affirm a greater truth.

2. Connect with the Divine

Divine Love is a love beyond our wildest dreams. When I was out of body amidst death and destruction, all I felt was a love that could not be put into words. It is always there for us whether we feel it or not. Our job it to connect with it, to feel and experience it as often as possible, so we can be ambassadors of this love.

The angels say that any time we take the time to focus on something loving we connect more strongly with the Divine. Love the sunrise. Love the fact that you breathe. Love your breakfast. Go to church if you like, or out in nature. Meditate or listen to beautiful music. Practice random acts of kindness or enjoy a gratitude journal. Find something, anything, that connects you with the feeling of Love on a regular basis.

Divine Love is meant to flow to us and through us. When we focus on love, we are strengthened by love. It connects us with the Source which is the power that creates universes, and a power that can easily assist you in your life.

3. Listen to your own heart

Other people, the news, and your own conditioning will always tell you what you 'should' do and how you 'should' feel. By all means, listen if it resonates with your heart. If not, listen to yourself. You are the authority in your own life. You know what feels right to you and what does not. Your heart connects you with Divine truth and Divine guidance. Ask your heart a simple question when you don't know what to do, "Heart, what do you recommend?" Trust your answer.

For example if you don't know what to do about the world's chaos, ask your heart, "What do you recommend." My guidance tells me to be at peace in my own life, heart, and home so I can be of service. Yours might do the same, or direct you to pray, volunteer, contribute. Each one of us receives our own personal guidance from the Divine.

If you feel you've lost the connection with your heart, take time in silence and just "be" for awhile until the mind settles down. I go for long hikes periodically to reconnect with my heart. Some people cook, listen to music, meditate, watch the clouds... Anything that allows your mind to relax starts to reconnect you with yourself.

This week, try to focus own your mind, connect with the Divine, and listen to your own heart.

In this way, you begin to live the loving, happy life, the creator dreams for you, rather than a chaotic and fear-based life that much of the world would convince you to live. You learn to be in the world, but not of it. Your existence becomes a living contribution towards world peace.

A book or a life...

When I was a little girl I wrote a short story and read it to my first grade class, about how my daddy accidentally made me eat shrimp tails. He thought I was fussing when I was whining that my shrimp were tough, and had no clue I was trying to eat the shells! Needless to say I chewed and chewed after he told me to eat my dinner and he was horrified later when he found out what had transpired. At least I got my calcium! 

Back to the story, my first grade class loved the story and something in me knew right then and there that I was going to write books someday. I didn't have a clue how or when. I was a child and as most children know... anything is possible. 

That vision drove me throughout the years. I wrote poetry in notebooks when I was bored. I taught myself to type in sixth grade and wrote mystery stories. A friend and I spent one grade school summer writing what we thought was a brilliant book about her cat, found the "Writer's Market" at a local library and submitted our hand typed manuscript to a publisher. We got a pretty detailed rejection from the poor editor who had to read it, and decided she just didn't appreciate our brilliance!

Even as an engineer I knew I would write. I dreamed up books about the uprising of the corporate masses. I wrote a daily newsletter to keep hundreds of engineers at Honeywell and Boeing coordinated. I journaled. Ever-present in the back of my mind, the resolve to write a book never left me. I knew what I wanted, but not how it would happen.

The summer after I quit my engineering career I wrote my first real book, sent it to publishers... and got rejected again! They kindly told me I had no experience speaking in my field and therefore was not a salable author.

So I waited. When other books arrived in my awareness, I wrote them and one day, with the press of a "Submit" button on a self-publishing website, I turned into an "official" author. Within a year life conspired to push me further out in public, and I was speaking at conferences with famous authors. 

I never dreamed this is how it would look. I had such a small vision looking back. I just wanted to write a book. God gave me a life working with angels, an international family of light, the urge to finish three books and many more brewing within me, a newsletter written weekly for nearly 15 years, speaking engagement, and now even this gazing that is happening. I never imagined this. It is far better than I would have ever asked for.

You never have to know how something will come about in your life. Just focus on dreaming the "what" into existence, and let the Creator figure out the "how." The Divine mind is brilliant, contains all possibilities, and offers so much more richness of life than any scheme the mind could ever conceive for achieving our goals or solving our problems.

Truly, all things are possible with God.

Here are a few pointers to help you remember that all things are possible...

1. When you have a challenge or a dream, write down at least fifty ways it might come about - ranging from the practical to the ridiculous.
Years ago I made a new friend. I asked the angels how it would turn out. They made me laugh by giving me a huge list of possibilities. They told me we could be best friends for life. I could insist I wanted someone to take care of me, fall out of a tree, and have him help me. We could get eaten by bears... Those were some of the more outlandish ones! The point was that anything could be created depending on our free will and choices. 

Suppose you need to pay a bill you don't know how to pay... I've seen these scenarios: A friend of a friend who doesn't even know you pays for it. A relative pays for it. The bill is forgiven, delayed, restructured. You win money. You sell something you forgot you had. You sell something you knew you had but didn't think you could sell and don't miss it. A relative or friend dies and leaves you money. You forgot you stashed money somewhere ten years ago... 

You get the idea and while this list might not apply to you, it does illustrate just a tiny set of the vast array of solutions I've witnessed. 

2. Review your life to see the many times that things worked when you didn't know how

Sometimes we need evidence from our own life. Go back and look at your life. Think of times you were challenged and didn't know how to solve something. What happened? Think of things you wanted but didn't know how to achieve that you now have or had. What happened. Let yourself be convinced by the evidence in your own life that all things are possible.

3. Read other people's stories

Go to and read stories. One miracle after the next is documented there! After awhile you can't deny that the universe is pretty creative in its problem solving and manifestations.

Enjoy not knowing how occasionally. Focus on the feel of what you want. Dream of it. Then let the universe and the Creator works it magic in your life!
