A: Most of all do not fear. You are in a time of preparation not a time of destruction as so many of you fear. This is a time for each of you to do your best to connect and hook into your higher selves, that oneness that exists inside of each of you. Learn to live in Harmony with all and create harmony within yourselves.
Many of you have such fear of the future that you do not perceive the future that is truly there. It is one of joy and harmony. The future is to be embraced, not feared. Look forward to the future with joy in your hearts. Reach out your arms to those close to you. Forgive yourselves as well as others. There is only beauty in your future. Read the rest of this entry »
The past few months have been a very difficult time in my life. I had a lot of time to reflect and put my own needs in perspective. My experience with this stress has given me coping skills that I want to share with you.
We all have choices in life when we believe that we have hit rock bottom. We can choose to stay at the bottom and focus on that negative energy, or we can look for the positive side and see that there is nowhere else to go, except back up to the top.
My mother is fighting cancer right now. She is strong and healthy and has always focused on a healthful and active lifestyle. Why is this happening to someone who does all the right things in life, when there are so many people that do not take care of themselves and then live a longer life? Read the rest of this entry »
Some people just don’t like to hear the truth. Do you also know people who seem to avoid you, because they know you’re potentially going to say it like it is? They recognize you as a person who tends to call a spade a spade; someone who shares the truth based on plain common sense.
I have known people who really don’t want help, advice, guidance or direction…from anyone. They know it all and that is just the way it is with them. The ego can make us not want to take honest advice, and thus we do not have the advantage of learning and growing with help from others who may have more experience or wisdom. I have learned the fine art of silence when I am around these people. I feel awkward, because those who know what I do for a living realize that they are pretty much transparent in my eyes, when they are around me. Read the rest of this entry »
In my experience a soulmate is someone to whom we feel deeply connected, as though the communicating and communing that take place between you were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace. This kind of relationship is so important to the soul that many have said there is nothing more precious in life.
We may find a soulmate in many different forms of relationships and in all areas of our lives, including friendship, marriage, work, family and recreation. We even find it with a delightful ‘critter’ – the pets we feel that special connection with. Read the rest of this entry »
My best times are those in which everything seems right with the world. I notice my surroundings and see details that I’ve never noticed before. I see each day as a new opportunity. I am optimistic. I am happy. I am cheerful. I am going with the flow, knowing that it will take me to my goals.
All of us have also had periodic episodes of that ‘all is not well’ feeling. But what if you could replace the worry, depression, doubt and fear with a true belief that a better outcome is available?
By becoming alert to Universal energy, you realize that there is always a flow between you and the objects of your worry and doubt (or your joy and happiness). It works like a fire. If you cut off the oxygen supply, the fire will die. The energy has stopped flowing. But, if you feed the fire with oxygen (energy), it will continue to burn until other conditions come into play.

Recently, I went to a stress management seminar and I am much calmer now, since using many of the skills I learned there. I was so happy about the results I achieved that I emailed the facilitator of the seminar and asked permission to share some of the basics with you.
At the seminar we were taught a set of ‘Distress Tolerance Tools’. The acronym you can use to remember this is ACCEPTS:
A – Activity. Go for a walk, take up swimming, get a hobby. Anything that takes your mind in a different direction for a while. The problem will still be there, but you should be able to see it with fresh eyes when you return.
C – Contribute. Volunteer in your community or work for a charity. For example, in many rural areas the fire department is run by volunteers. In the town I live in there is a ‘baby cupboard’ for young mothers to get diapers, blankets and formula for their infants. Read or play music at a rest home. Find somewhere to contribute. The possibilities are endless. Read the rest of this entry »
In the Age of Pisces, humanity learned about dualities. We learned about the duality of good and evil, power and the lack of power. Many took control and power over others, while their subjects suffered in silence.
We were also taught the concept of a God who was sacrificed, and that we must pay for our sins and serve others to make penance. This was an age of atonement for past sins and sacrifice in the now to reap the rewards of Heaven.
The Aquarian Age, which is fast approaching, has a vastly different energy and expression. Some believe that we are already in the early stages of this age and its energy is already being felt. Read the rest of this entry »
The recent financial downfall had many of us feeling helpless and paralyzed, but it had to happen for us to see things differently.
We also need to realize that there are still a lot of people in this world that need a helping hand.
Whenever you start to feel that you deserve more, or become frustrated when someone else has more than you, just think about those that can’t even afford to feed or clothe their family. Or think of those who cannot afford medical insurance for their children. The news reports around a ten percent unemployment rate for the United States, but I think the numbers are even higher than that. Read the rest of this entry »
