A Long Dress By Gertrude Stein

Gertrude Stein

That is the current that makes machinery,
that makes it crackle,
what is the current that presents a long line and a necessary waist.
What is this current.
What is the wind, what is it.

Where is the serene length,
it is there and a dark place is not a dark place,
only a white and red are black, only a yellow and green are blue,
a pink is scarlet, a bow is every color. A line distinguishes it.
A line just distinguishes it.

How to Find An Awesome Job You Never Knew Existed

Energy Is In Motion By Ann Albers

Ann AlbersMy dear friends, we love you so very much,

Be kind and gentle with yourselves and one another for everything is bubbling up from the depths within you, within others, and even within your dear Mother Earth. It is a time when the energies are rushing strongly through your physical world. Like the rapidly moving currents of a river after the rains, there is great movement. Everything within that has been stagnant is now getting stirred up.

You see this manifesting in many ways – political disagreements, sudden overwhelming rushes of emotion, volcanoes rumbling, storms, outbursts and moodiness in others. While this can be understandably disconcerting at the human level, we are celebrating in the heavens! Movement brings release, relief, and new life. If you have a stream clogged with debris, the clean and clear water cannot flow. If you suddenly increase the current, however, all the debris is washed away and once again the pure water is free to nourish all in its path. So too, the energy is rushing through human hearts, your Mother Earth, and indeed your entire planet, cleansing and clearing out all that was once stuck.

Be gentle with yourselves. When you feel strong emotions emerging, let them flow and let them go. Instead of taking out your frustrations on one another, simply allow yourself the luxury of loving yourself through your feelings in private. Accept yourself as you are. And then when the so-called negative emotions have run their course, find the love beneath them. What is it you wish to change in your life to be kinder to yourself? What is is you wish to kindly express to one another? It is a time of “getting real” dear ones. It is a time when the mind can no longer pretend to be in control of your hearts. It is a time of allowing yourself full range of emotion, then finding ways to express yourselves, kindly and with love.

The energy is in rapid motion… and ultimately that brings, growth, movement, and wonderful positive change.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.
– The Angels

Message From Ann

In August and September I started noticing waves of people coming in for sessions, with waves of strong emotion. A phrase I heard over and over was “I feel so overwhelmed.” It wasn’t the overwhelm that comes from a lot of work, but rather the overwhelm that comes from a lot of emotion. Volcanoes were rumbling and venting in Papua New Guinea, Hawaii, Iceland, Ecuador, Indonesia, and Japan… to name a few… and with Mother Earth’s massive venting, I was starting to witness waves of human hearts venting the pressures they’ve carried for years as well. If you’re not used to having strong feelings, it can be overwhelming when your soul starts to release the pressure and bring the stuffed emotions to the surface.

Over the years, the angels have taught me to accept everything that rises up within me – all of it – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Self-acceptance is the key to transformation. So when I started having strong emotions come to the surface, I did what they’ve taught me to do. The day the tears came up (for reasons I still do not understand), I grabbed a towel and let myself sob without analysis or judgment. The day the upset came up and out about allowing myself to be mistreated by energies that feed off fear, I had a massive rant and rave in private of course. I put a bubble of light around myself so as to avoid sending nasty ripples out into the cosmic pond, and let myself have the full range of feelings.

As a result, the light is now flowing even more strongly than before. I’ve allowed these waves of energy to cleanse and purge me and to clear away the psychic debris and there is a new strength of conviction, new abilities emerging, and a renewed enthusiasm for all the projects “on my plate.”

As the saying goes, “What we resist persists.” When you feel strong emotions coming up, let them pass through you in private. You don’t have to overanalyse or judge them. Just let them go, like a storm passing across the land that will eventually run out of energy and leave behind a refreshed and peaceful landscape.

Our souls are already whole. We are already holy. We are simply having a human experience and that sometimes requires clearing away the illusion that we are anything less than worthy of love, capable of expressing love, and in all truth, made of the very same.

Love you all! Have a blessed and beautiful week.
Happy cleansing :)

Loneliness By Trumbull Stickney

Trumbull Stickney

These autumn gardens, russet, gray and brown,
The sward with shrivelled foliage strown,
The shrubs and trees
By weary wings of sunshine overflown
And timid silences,–

Since first you, darling, called my spirit yours,
Seem happy, and the gladness pours
From day to day,
And yester-year across this year endures
Unto next year away.

Now in these places where I used to rove
And give the dropping leaves my love
And weep to them,
They seem to fall divinely from above,
Like to a diadem

Closing in one with the disheartened flowers.
High up the migrant birds in showers
Shine in the sky,
And all the movement of the natural hours
Turns into melody.
