Ann Albers: Unity Doesn’t Require Agreement

Unity Doesn’t Require Agreement

There is, deep within human hearts, a deep desire for unity. Deep down, you all have a desire to connect in a loving and meaningful way. At times it seems like a dream to find this union with all the diverse and conflicting opinions upon your planet earth. However, unity never requires sameness, never requires similarity, and has never even asked for agreement.

As children, you were fascinated by differences. You loved meeting people who looked different or acted differently. You were curious. You learned something new with every new encounter. When someone believed something different than you, you asked with genuine interest, “Why?”  You listened, decided if the other perspective resonated with you, and then either engaged in the dialogue further or walked away. You were students of life, learning about others and yourselves at the same time.

Somewhere along the way however, you metaphorically “ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil,” and you began to evaluate the different perspectives as right and wrong.

You began to judge others and you began to judge yourselves. You began to argue, to try to convince others to agree, and many of you began to attempt to change yourselves to “fit in.” You were never meant to “fit in” in the sense of being the same. You were meant instead, like a piece of a puzzle, to take your place as a unique and precious part of creation.

So rather than fearing or judging the differences in yourself and others, explore them. Rather than arguing with anyone, simply own your own point of view, and seek to understand that of others. Agree to disagree and if someone cannot allow you the same, walk away. Let your silence speak more powerfully than your words.

It is because of your differences that the human race continues to function, evolve, and grow. Your differences help you examine new perspectives. Your differences expose you to thoughts and ideas that you might never have considered. Your differences cause you to look deeper for what you have in common and to discover how you can all benefit from one another’s strengths.

If all the cells in the human body were the same, you would not be you. There is great unity in their diversity as they cooperate to create the miracle that you are. Likewise, there can be great unity among humanity if each of you simply finds your place and point of view and allows others to do the same.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.

— The Angels

Message From Ann:

I grew up in a family of strongly opinionated and strong-willed people – me included. There were often conflicting points of view… and that used to bother and frustrate us all. I’m certainly not the person anyone (including me) thought I would turn out to be.

In years gone by, I spent many upsetting conversations trying to convince my family to believe as I did, to enjoy the healing modalities I did, and to accept my points of view. I spent many more frustrating trying to be accepted for my beliefs without being able to prove them. My dad is a physicist. My mom has done accounting and office work. My brother is of a religious persuasion and was concerned about my soul. In my younger days, we had some mighty arguments. In retrospect I know we all just wanted to be accepted and understood.

Over the years the angels have helped me accept myself so thoroughly that I was able to give up my need for validation, approval, and acceptance. As a result, have no need to push my beliefs on anyone. I’ve also realized I have no need to please anyone by trying to be anything other than who I am. We all get along beautifully now. We all take a much greater interest in one another.

My dad, a brilliant physicist and college professor, now listens to my stories of life working with those on the other side. When I recently went home for a visit, he gave me a tour the research lab where he and his students are studying cold fusion. My mom and I now talk about recipes, my nieces, jokes, and angels. My brother, who once feared for my soul, is a wonderful dad who shares his heart and home with us. I feel as if we’ve graduated. In fact, I just returned a few weeks ago from one of the most loving and beautiful visits in my adult life – truly a victory celebration of unity in the diversity!

Here are a few pointers to find / feel more unity this week:

1. Seek to understand

Rather than judging another perspective, seek to understand. Ask, “Why do you feel that way? I’m interested.” Don’t jump to conclusions or make assumptions. When we grant others understanding, they frequently return the favor. If they don’t at least you’ll understand them more deeply.

2. Give acknowledgment when you don’t have agreement

If you don’t agree with someone at least acknowledge their perspective. “Oh, I see what you mean.” The angels beg us not to try to change others but rather allow ourselves and them the courtesy of simply being acknowledged.

I talk to people everywhere. Sometimes someone will go on and on about a belief that I simply don’t share. I just say, “Oh I see what you mean,” and that is enough.

3. Enjoy the differences

Enjoy cultural diversity. Savor the flavor in life! If you find someone’s perspective absurd to you, laugh about it. What is absurd to you serves a purpose for someone else.

I can’t wait for the day when we all return to that innocent state of being where we are naturally and simply curious about the differences. Variety is truly the spice of life!

Love you all!
Ann

Radical Trust by Shanta Gabriel

Radical Trust by Shanta Gabriel

Dear Ones,

 

In every moment, you are being guided on a path to Oneness with All That Is.

There are times when the lessons on the path may feel more difficult than others. You may question if you have taken a detour off the path of your Soul Purpose. You could even wonder if you are doing something wrong.

 

There is a sure-fire way to discover the answer to these time-honored questions. The answer lies in Gratitude.

 

It can be necessary to give thanks for the challenges, difficulties and obstacles on your path. We know this is a very difficult thing to do. You may worry that giving thanks will make you receive more of what you are currently struggling with. Feeling angry for what you are experiencing gets stronger, and resistance to What Is may suddenly take over your consciousness. This idea of being thankful for circumstances that seem unfair and monumental does not sit easily for most people.

 

It is just at these times that trusting that you are being guided and cared for in every moment is necessary. You are on an accelerated trajectory and all that you need to be in harmony with your greatest Soul Reality is being provided moment to moment.

 

This is the time of Equinox, when darkness and light are in perfect Balance. This is an example of your most beneficial emotional state as well.1

 

When you can release the attachment to outcomes, as frightening as that may seem, you are demonstrating the required neutrality for Life at this time. Your Soul is asking you to rely therefore on Radical Trust, even if it means leaping empty handed into the Void.

 

Every step you take, bless it. Ask to be in Alignment with your Soul’s Highest Purpose on Earth. That sets the stage for Divine Orchestration of all that is required for you to be in perfect Harmony with that prayer. It will be chosen by your Soul with all the lessons, experiences and challenges provided in perfect timing, all in Divine Order. Trusting this process may be one of your greatest challenges.

 

So on this day of Equinox, step into the Equanimity that allows you to offer all outcomes to the Wisdom of your Soul. Ask to expand your Faith and Trust in the process. Remember you are not alone, ever!

 

As you open your heart and mind to Gratitude, trust that you are being supported by a Love that never ends. All is well. And so it is.

A Note from Shanta:

Leaping empty handed into the Void in total Trust seems to be a theme in a lot of people’s lives right now. I know a surprising number of people who are leaving town. Some say it is because our Mt. Shasta winter was too big last year to handle after four years of mild drought winters.

I am sure that is true for some, but people all over the world are being called by their inner spirit to move to new places. My guidance has said that people are being moved by their Soul to where they most need to be right now. Some I know are in resistance, feeling as though they just got settled, but are aware of an essential movement inside their hearts taking them to a new life. I know several people who are selling or giving away everything they own, showing Radical Trust in their commitment to their inner spiritual guidance.

I know I have been in this situation;  more than once surprisingly. Usually it occurred just as I was beginning to feel settled. Sometimes I stayed in one place for as long as 3 years, however it as also been as frequent as every 2-3 months. It has always been hugely frightening! Every time I needed to mark it as a demonstration of my willingness to follow my heart even when it meant giving up all I had ever known.

It is not an easy thing to give thanks in a time of tumultuous upheaval  Changing our lives is often burdensome, always scary, and may require a letting go of many things, people and pets, in order to follow the next step in our Soul’s growth. Deep breath!

And for some people, if they were not willing to follow the inner nudges of their hearts to make a change, the Universe may step in and take it all away in a heart beat. This has been in evidence very recently. My guidance says no matter how it looks, there is a Divine Plan.

What I also noticed however, was a tremendous sense of adventure that would leap unbidden into my heart when my journey was finally underway. Often as I began my drive, there would be a rainbow or a cloud that looked like an Angel on the horizon. In some way I am usually shown that I am being guided and protected. I even like to think that my willingness to trust is being celebrated by my Soul’s guidance.

It is a powerful time to be alive and we are being asked to stay in Balance and Equanimity as much as we can. Equinox can give us a true inner sense of that place within us.

It is a step by step process, relying on the Inner Gyroscope of our Soul to bring us back to center. We would never find ourselves in such a position, if we were not being held in loving wings of Pure Light, protected and cared for, guided in every moment.

I believe it is an Act of Faith.

 

Thank you for your Courage and Willingness to participate in New Life.

Love and Blessings, Shanta

Doreen Virtue changes her message. Here are my thoughts.


Doreen Virtue changes her message. Here are my thoughts.

Although I will continue to follow Doreen Virtue, who has helped multitudes of people around the world with her psychic gifts, it looks like she may no longer be posting the weekly Divine Guidance/Angel Messages, so I will not necessarily be posting her new “Heart to Heart with Doreen Virtue” (Jesus/Bible messages), after this one, because they do not resonate with me. However, I feel much gratitude for her body of work, and I continue to use her cards, self-healing videos and podcast meditations. I have great respect for her, although her views differ from mine.

Her recent contact with Jesus and subsequent changes she has made has stirred much controversy in both the New Age and Christian communities. HOWEVER, DOREEN VIRTUE HAS NOT “DENOUNCED” EVERYTHING, as she explains in this video. She points out that many of the rumors are not true, so she has taken the time to explain what has transpired in her life.  I think it is best to listen to Doreen express her own views in these 2 videos before passing judgment.

IMHO, the difference between “fortune-tellers” and someone sharing their psychic spiritual gifts from God is INTENTION. Doreen has always had only the best of intentions, so that has not changed. What has changed is now that she has come to understand her gifts on a deeper level, she knows she must make sure God is the source of her messages before sharing them. She mentions towards the end of the video that God and Jesus do not want us to JUDGE others. Here is Doreen’s full statement, along with the video that she posted last week on her FB page:
