My dear friends, we love you so very much,
During a given day, you have thousands of moments in which you can appreciate life’s simple pleasures. In a single second or at a single glance, you have countless things to focus on.
Suppose you are drinking coffee with a friend. In a single second, you might appreciate the aroma of your beverage, evoking feelings of warmth or well-being. You could look deep into your friend’s eyes and notice their concern, evoking feelings of compassion. You might see the logo on your cup for the first time, evoking a sense of appreciation, curiosity, and wonder within you. You might notice the kind soul holding a door open for another, evoking feelings of love. You might notice the person next to you joking loudly, evoking feelings of humor. You might hear a song you like in the distance, evoking feelings of energy and inspiration. You might be talking about something that happened in the past, evoking all those associated feelings, or you might be talking about something you’d love to experience, thus evoking all the wonderful feelings associated with that experience.
There, in one second of your life, you have a rich tapestry of choices. When you see your lives in retrospect from heaven, you will see this way. You will see the rich opportunities for love, good feelings, connection, and appreciation in each moment. You will see the depth and breadth of vibrational choice you had in every second of your life. And dear ones, we don’t say this to put you down in any way, but in heaven, you will wonder why you didn’t take advantage of this wealth of love being offered to you more often. You aren’t bad if you don’t. You simply have a life experience that could be better. As your angels, we wish for you only the most loving and joyous life experience possible, and we constantly try to draw your attention to the best in a given moment.
For example, we know you miss your loved ones who have transitioned into their greater being. It feels like you have lost love, and in truth, you have lost the human sensory experience of it, person-to-person in 3D. But in the same instant that your loss feels so intense, your dear ones stand next to you in the present moment, offering a new sensory experience, a new and deeper connection, and an even more profound love. Reach for comfort when you’re grieving, and when you can, sit quietly, breathe deeply, and for a moment believe in the love that wants to embrace you. In time you will feel it.
Likewise, when you face a health challenge or when you’re in pain, it is hard to think of anything else. You do what you can. You can focus on the comfort of a blanket, the softness of a pillow, a beautiful song, the laughter of a child, or the dog who lays his head in your lap and demands attention. You can focus on a movie or a good book for awhile. You can explore new ways of eating. This isn’t easy, but the love is there in each moment, waiting to help open you to the life force that heals.
Even when you worry about your loved ones and your world, the love is still there. You can look for the good people in your life, the kind ones in the store, and read the stories of young people helping your planet. You can tell yourself humorously, “Well if the world is going to fall apart, I may as well have a good day!” You can appreciate a ray of sunlight filtering into the kitchen window or your meal cooking on the stove. How beautiful the present moment is and rich with opportunity to experience love.
The more you attune to the good in life, no matter how large or small, the more good you attract. The more you notice the things in your life with appreciation, the more there will be to appreciate. Even if you are sick, the more you notice the little moments without pain or problems, the more you support your body in good health.
The practice of looking for good when bad things happen feels counter-intuitive, but that is only due to your conditioning. A child is born looking for good. Your animals constantly look for good. All of nature grows towards what is to its benefit. Only humanity is trained out of this natural urge, but you can return to it. You can start to notice the abundance of love offered in so many small ways, in a given moment. As you practice, your life will slowly but surely become a tapestry of loving moments in a life rich with love.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
— The Angels
