Hello!  Ooooh, it’s been a while since I’ve posted.  As I wrote in one of my earlier posts, I’m taking on yoga teacher training right now.  I’m more than half way through and it’s been such a wonderful, heart and mind-opening journey for me.

Friends, there is *always* something to learn.  We are *never* done.  Never.

So . . . 

Happy New Year, dear ones!  Happy newness!  Happy starts!  Happy finishes!  Happy everything!

This is your year — this is it.  This is your life.  Step boldly and move forward this year!

I’m surrounding my little website and blog with a grid of light, love and peace and if you enter here it is yours for the taking.  Breathe deeply and feel connected to the infinite wisdom and love of the highest sources.  Feel a circle of angels and ascended masters smiling down their love onto your beautiful, up-turned face.  You are loved, accepted and unconditionally forgiven (they tell me emmphatically that there is nothing to forgive, dear ones.  There is nothing left to forgive — it’s already done.)  Accept your place in the grid of love and light.  Find your spot — own it and live it.

Let love and light shine out from your heart chakra, through your eyes, through your touch and through your footprints.  Be like good King Wenceslas — providing heat in your very footsteps to provide comfort and warmth to those who follow behind you.

I’ve decided that in these last few months of yoga training, I’m going to post little FaceBook-like status updates on my blog.  It’s not as complete as a regular blog entry, but it’s better than leaving months of silence . . .

With a tidal wave of love to you all!  Blessings on this new year!

Hi, dear ones.  Sending waves of abundant love to you all.  The angels wrap you up in their beautiful wings and shower their blessings of peace on you.

I don’t know about you, but I’m the type who likes to figure stuff out.  I like to get to the bottom of the whys of life.  I really like analytical stuff.  I took statistics three times in college!  (Actually, the courses were required for my degree, but still . . .)

The angels say, though, that our tendency to work things out mentally can be a hinderance to our spiritual opening and flourshing.

Some things, we just simply won’t figure out, no matter how hard we try or how many times we turn it over and over in our heads.  There are things that just won’t make sense, just can’t be cataloged and filed away.

They say some of those “mysteries” of life are just the ego’s way of keeping us spinning our wheels in our limited perceptive field so that we don’t delve into the Mysteries of life — those deep, profound spiritual questions that keep us moving toward enlightenment and awe.

Those little mysteries are so compelling, though, aren’t they?  They keep us engaged.  Sometimes it’s a grudge or rivalry that you don’t really understand or remember the source of.  Sometimes it’s the outer manifestation of stuff — illness or tragic events or “acts of God”.  Those things — even though they don’t feel small at the time (they dominate our mental space) — are actually fitting into very small spaces in the overall picture of our Lives.  The image I get is a piece from a 1,000 piece puzzle — it’s just a tiny bit of the overall picture.

The angels ask you to step aside from these little mysteries — if even just for a few minutes a day.  See yourself beyond that.  Try to imagine yourself standing in the purity and expansiveness of heaven, looking at yourself on earth and begin to find perspective within your heart and mind.  Look at your life with wise knowing of the fullness of who you are and where you come from.

You are a beloved child of God and you come from the very heart and mind of pure, unconditional love and acceptance.  You are greatness and greatness surrounds you.  That is the Truth of your spiritual self — and that is an eternal state of being.

This lifetime with its challenges, tests and hurdles is not eternal — it’s very temporary.  It’s almost like an obstacle course — you know, one of those really hard, military-type ones.  You may not always feel like it, but you’re up to the test of this obstacle course.  You’re conditioned well.  You know what you need to know.

Remember that this knowing resides within you — deep within you.  You can begin to access this deep wisdom by quieting the mental chatter of these outer mysteries.  As you do that — quieting and centering — you will begin to find yourself drifting to that place of deep Mystery.  That is divine wisdom, living within your Self.

Ask your angels to accompany you as you journey to that inner place — they are joyful travel companions.  Don’t put any pressure on yourself to “get it right” or “perfect” — those are little mental mysteries that hold you back.

Just let yourself float inward.

As you continue to practice this, you will begin to receive brilliant, divine guidance about your life.  Very likely you will receive instruction to forgive all outward appearances of situations and of people.

Then, as you continue to forgive lower vibrational experiences like competition, hate, anger, fear and rivalry, you will begin to feel yourself running parallel to the wisdom that brought you the guidance.  You’ll have awakened that part of you to the point where it does not take special meditative preparation anymore.  It’s just on.

And, that, my dear friends is a Mystery that you will have no need of figuring out.  It just will be.

I confess:  I’m not a big fan of spiders.  I don’t mind them too much if I can see them coming, but if one sneaks up on me, or starts walking on me, I get a little freaked!  All those little legs holding up that little body . . .  [shudder]

However, any of you who do work with Animal Spirit Guides knows that those dear little (or not-so-little) spiders actually carry an important message for us.  From Steven Farmer’s book Animal Spirit Guides, when a spider shows up, it means:

– This is an opportunity to access your deepest wisdom and assimilate it so that it becomes a part of your daily living.

– Beware of any potential traps or ruses that you’re tempted to get involved in.

– Rather than staying stuck in this apparent impasse, open your mind to the infinite number of possibilities that are before you, and make a choice.

– Don’t limit yourself to the mundane world, but instead be willing to explore other dimensions and realities.

– It’s time to write creatively without limits of tradition or habit, allowing yourself to be inspired by Nature.

Now, whenever a spider shows up, I’m more interested in seeing where its message fits into my life. (I still brush it away from me gently and lovingly, though)

The angels want to add some more detail to this discussion of spiders (they brought up the topic, by the way . . .).  The remind us that everything on this earthly plane is interconnected.  All of our lives, all living organisms, all currents of the earth.  There is no randomness, there is no coincidence.

They show me the web of interconnectedness that encircles our whole world — on a very large, cosmic level.  And, they show me the delicate interconnectedness that exists between each of us.  They ask you to imagine the beautiful gossamer threads that tie us to everyone else.

They also invite you to imagine yourself sitting in the center of a beautiful, intricate web made of golden thread.  Your influence and energy stretches and fans out from your heart center.  It isn’t an image of ensnaring others or capturing them — it’s a loving extension of your spirit-filled soul.

Now, it is possible for dark gunk to cover the golden thread.  That gunk would be the tendency to control and to manipulate others.  But, that’s not the core — the core is beauty and light.  To remove the gunk is in the practice of forgiveness and surrender.  Surrender to love and peace — and forgive all things that are not.

The threads of love and peace  are very strong — they cannot be broken.  But, the dark gunk can be dissolved and washed away.  Hold the intention of it and ask the angels for their help and the clean-up begins instantly.

Also hold the intention of connecting completly with the golden Truth of your interactions.  Hold the intention of adding blessings in all situations and interactions.  Hold the vision of rising into your highest self — that part of you that is in full alignment with the divine.  (Yes, that is part of you!  Absolutely!)

You are sitting in the very center of your personal web of interconnectedness — make it work for your highest purpose.  Add love and forgiveness, blessings and beauty to the web.  You will feel the love and beauty encircle you like a warm, gentle breeze — and you will offer that to everyone around you.

Remember Charlotte and her web.  The amazing power of the spider!

Love to you all today.  Blessings from above.

Here comes a train!  How do you feel when the red lights start to flash and the barriers lower right in front of your car?

Before I had children, I’m guessing I was probably annoyed by the delay.  I was always in a hurry.  I was a corporate type back then.  All I could think of is what was coming next in my day (and I was probably running late!).

And, you know what?  You can’t do a thing about a train.  You can’t drive through it.  You have to wait.  That can trigger control issues within us.

We love to control things!  We like to know what’s coming next and how we’re going to handle it.  Sure, we sometimes like spontenaity, but most of the time we want to control our lives.   Every single little detail (or else we get a little testy).

Way back when, I embraced the concept of “appreciating” the delay because maybe it kept me from getting into an accident, or something like that.  You just never know about those unexpected delays . . .  [wink]

But, truthfully, that was sort of lip service.  Yes, I kind of believed that I was being looked after by the traffic angels, but mostly I just was annoyed by the delay.

Once my children came along, though, the brilliance of their sweet little spirits began to crack open my perspective on things.  For example, trains!  My first-born is a boy, and he was always a “wheels” guy — loved all sorts of vehicles.  So, when there was a train (or a bulldozer . . . or a dumptruck . . . or a school bus . . . or a semi-truck) it brought him utter joy and excitement.  We’d stop on purpose to watch it pass!  Sometimes the goal of our whole day was seeing what kinds of wheels we saw.

Today, my youngest child and I saw a nice, long train and we counted the cars together as we watched it roll past.  To her it was a really fun game (actually it was fun for me too).

My children brought to me the concept of being in the present.  Being fully present right where you are.  Making the most of whatever is right in front of you.  Not bemoaning the past, not stressed out about the future.  Just being right here, right now.

As a mama you’re forced into that “present” thing.  But to really embrace it takes an extra step.  There’s the surrender of it, the letting go of control — and being okay with that.  Actually, delighting in it.

The angels remind us that being in the present is “better” than living in the past or in the future, but still we’re striving for the eternal.  But, getting to the present is a really important step, because that’s where the door of eternity is!  You can’t find eternity in the past and it doesn’t exist in the future.  It is right here, with you, right now.

The door to eternity begins to appear to you as you find your center, your stillness.  It begins to open as you fill yourself with the love of heaven and begin to practice the forgiveness of heaven.  Its light and warmth enfolds you and you recognize the feeling and the sight of it.  It’s home.  And, you belong there.

The angels and I encourage you to remember that your home is eternal — and it’s right at your fingertips.  Today!

The next time you’re stopped for a train . . . meditate, pray, contemplate, bask in the sunbeam.  Let yourself remember your heart’s home.  And, our dear traffic angels remind you:  there is a reason for the delay — it may be your reason or it may be someone else’s, but there are no coincidences!  [wink]

Blessings today, friends!

Hi, friends!

I’ve been taking some strong medicine to bring me back to full physical health and it’s been making me a little foggy.  Until I clear up, I send you this sincere and powerful reminder:

You are loved.  You are adored.  You’re cared for and looked after.  You’re precious — you’re a child of God, the Creator of all.

Please love yourself and open yourself up to the love of heaven.  Heaven wants to shine its unconditional love down on you, opening your heart and illuminating your face.  Visualize this.  Begin to feel it — and then go out and share it!

Be the love you are!  Blessings to you today.

Sending a wave of love and appreciation for all my magnificent clients.  It is an joy to share my work with you and and honor to receive your trust and openness.

You are all magnificent souls — light-filled and adored by heaven.

Embrace and receive the love that heaven showers down on you.  Blessings as you journey.

Hi, friends!

For any of you who read my last post, remember I said I’d get around to figuring out why I drew to me that unpleasant task of cleaning up my dog’s accident?

Well I did.  It was a message to myself that I’ve been surrounded by other people’s s**t lately.  Um hmmm.  Got it.  Point taken, Self.

So, I cleaned this mess up, but in general, I’ll let others handle their own messes.  Unless they ask for my help and then I will be honored to assist — while remaining energetically neutral, that is.

You know, it’s funny.  I was sort of getting it along the way . . .  I knew I wasn’t feeling great, physically or psychically.  I knew I was feeling energetically heavy — I did the clearing the other day (and I did some venting to a couple of friends and my dear husband).

But what a clear, unavoidable, smelly, messy, spot-on message the accident was!

You’ve gotta love it!  There’s brilliance there . . .

[My angels are standing around clapping and nodding at me for putting it all together for myself . . .  Thanks, angels!]

Okay, so I’m sitting here doing the “final analysis” on the dog s**t thing.  One part of me says, don’t leave people locked in the laundry room and stuff like this won’t happen . . .  no, that’s not quite it . . .

The angels tell me not to get drawn into other people’s dramas.  Stay separate from them.  Let other people learn as they’ll learn and if they ask for guidance, I’ll be glad to help.  Otherwise let them be.  Stay energetic separate.  Certainly, don’t follow people down the vibrational ladder — that’s not a bit helpful to me or to them.

Stay vibrationally uplifted by being in nature, by meditating, staying grounded (for me this often means vigorous yoga or dance) and consciously looking at the light and love that is inherently present in each person.

I confess I let myself forget that inherent light and love with a couple of people:  a snitty receptionist, a couple of Memphis drivers and a couple of other people.  A good reminder — I make my way back to A Course In Miracles work.  I will forgive myself and I will forgive them.  I will let go of the need to blame and to separate myself.  I will forgive the momentary lapse into dark seeing.

Welcome back light seeing!  Welcome back clarity and love!  Welcome back, Self!

Spreading the light of awareness!  Blessings of that light to you too!

Whooh, Nellie!  (As a friend of mine would say)  I’m coming out of a little flu-like thing (whatever it was).  Yuck!  Sore throat, headache, fever, crazy internal thermostat . . .  What a nuisance!

Of course, I did plenty of Yuen energy healing corrections on it but wish I’d have taken homeopathics much earlier in the process.  I’m feeling tons better now.

Part of the Yuen protocol is to find out if there are “issues”, “triggers” or “choices” contributing to the illness.  One of the triggers was my taking on a new layer of my own learning and understanding about forgiveness.  It’s that radical, complete forgiveness that Gary Renard talks about in his books.  I was trying to incorporate the concept more fully and more broadly — and more immediately.  And, my ego slammed me!  Literally right upside the head!

ARGHH . . .

So, I kept working it, kept forgiving it, kept knowing that everything was okay, that this “illness” wasn’t even real, it was just something that part of myself created to keep me off track (at least for a couple of days).  The angels sat with me, offering their companionship and comfort, yet allowing me the space to work through the learning associated with the test.

Finally, almost the whole thing lifted when I chaperoned a little field trip to a ballet/hip-hop/modern dance troupe’s performance.  [angelic harp music]  I *love* dance!  I took a bunch of dance for years — all types of dance.  Except, I have to say hip-hop and I’d have to have some pretty serious instruction to find that groove, but it would be fun to try!

So, as I wrote in a post a while back, the ego will continue to give us challenges to overcome on the path and the fastest way to emerge from those tests is to work on ourselves.  Forgive everything that contributes to the issue, heal everything from the past, release what isn’t ours, address what is.  The tests and challenges are mirrors that we can investigate.  Believe me, it’s not always fun.  It’s not always pretty.  But it does move you forward.

It was tempting at times to feel like a victim (like when I was lying on the floor, exhausted after putting away a load of laundry, or when I couldn’t find the energy to wash the dishes), but really, there was nothing victim-y about it.  It was just an opportunity to put the concepts into practice (I’d have chosen a little easier test, but, oh well!).  And, there will be more.

I say, “Bring them on!  Let’s keep the momentum going!  I’m ready to work the layers!”

Blessings to you as you work yours!  Love and healing . . .

A reminder to all of you that you are magnificent, beloved children of God!  The angels surround you with their lovely wings and their soft caresses and ask you not to be afraid or lonely.  They ask you to remember your true nature and to rise into it fully.  They ask you to stand tall and straight and raise your faces to the heavens and feel the love beams warm your face (even if it’s freezing cold outside and you’re ankle-deep in snow!).

Sending you these waves of love today — simple and pure.

Hello, my friends!  Oh, I just love the angels’ sense of proportion and balance.  My last post was a call to bring you out of the depths and now the angels want to invite you back into the depths.

If you’re coming from the Christian tradition, you may be aware that yesterday was Ash Wednesday — the beginning of Lent.  For many people the 40 days and 40 nights of the Lenten season is a time for deep reflection and contemplation.  Some traditions call for a sacrifice to be made — giving up some luxury or pleasure for this time frame.  That’s a step toward purification of body and mind, so that the spirit has a chance to swell and bloom.  Other traditions call for a deeper study of ancient texts or an increase in prayer and meditation.  These are ways to deepen our connection to the divine and to bring Christ into our hearts and souls.

In past years I have found Lent to be a time of significant spiritual awakening.  I come from the Protestant Christian tradition where we take on deeper study or prayer during Lent.  Those times have been very fruitful for me.  Taking on a meditation discipline for 40 straight days can be a challenge, but the challenge we feel is coming from our ego (who doesn’t want us to realize our full relationship with divine, but instead wants to keep us trapped in a power struggle with God).  Once we learn ways to overcome the struggle (or just muscle through it), we come to a place of beautiful peace — a glimpse of heaven on earth.

So the angels ask you to try meditation or prayer — or strengthen your practice.  Meet them in the center of your perception.  Like the spiral (my favorite spiritual symbol) that circles around and around, moving always toward the center, the angels invite you to travel that path of inward movement through deep breathing and visualization until you near the center.  You’ll find them there, waiting for you, loving you each moment.

Sit with them there and drink in their beauty and peace and know that that is who you truly are.  You are beauty and peace.  You are calm and wisdom.  You are generosity and light.  You are in the world but not of it.  You are a child of heaven.

Yes, you are.  You are loved beyond human measure.

In this center space, you may find things that need to be shed from yourself — old worries, false beliefs about yourself, limitations that no longer fit, old grievances that are ready to float on, old grudges that no longer serve anything, other people’s false teachings that you know in your heart aren’t from God.  Release those to the angels.  Just hand them over.  They’ll gather them up and fly them heavenward where they’ll be transformed by the love of God into something of beauty that can bless you.

Sometimes when I’ve worked with clients that image looks like a black box of filth that the angels carry upward.  When they get into the heavenly realms, they open the box and out fly hundreds of butterflies.  It’s a gorgeous sight!  Don’t be afraid to hand over your ick — once the angels and God get a hold of it, it turns into breathtaking beauty!

(That’s how the power of love and forgiveness works — and there will come a time when you will be able to do the very same thing for yourself and for other people!)

As you come back out of the spiral and back into earthly perception, carry these Truths with you throughout your day.  Carry with you the beauty that you are.  Be the beauty.  See the beauty.  Share the beauty.

The angels invite you back into the depths — to share some time with them.  Blessings on your hearts and souls — you are magnificent!
