Move On

“The past is the past. Don't let it kill you. Get over the bad things that happened. It's gone. People change. Memories remain. But it's time to move on.”― Unknown

Hard thing to do. Maybe try and understand the situation and look at both sides of the coin. Then move on.

Lunar Eclipses

The biggest celestial event of the year is just around the corner. 

 And you can feel the effects now. It's eclipse season! We're having a Lunar Eclipse on August 7th, and a New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st. Eclipses are the Universe's way of making sure you are seeing the TRUTH in your life. You've most likely been learning lessons the past few weeks about not taking on other people's stuff - it doesn't belong to you. It's not selfish to put yourself first. It helps other people activate their own power if you allow them to experience the spiritual lessons on their journey. You're learning how to treat yourself with more respect, so others respect you as well. You're also learning that being productive means you take time to have fun. Leo is the sign of leadership. It's totem is the Lion who is teaching you how to be creative, play, and most importantly - take charge of your life. A wonderful time to enjoy Summer it sure is a good one. Have fun.

What is Your World Like...

One of the most important decisions you’ll ever make is choosing the kind of universe you exist in. 

Is it helpful and supportive or hostile and unsupportive? Your answer to this question will make all the difference in terms of how you live your life and what kind of Divine assistance you attract. Remember that you get what you think about, whether you want it or not. So if you’re sure that this is an unfriendly universe, you’ll look for examples to support this point of view. 

You’ll anticipate people attempting to cheat, judge, take advantage of, and otherwise harm you. You’ll blame the antagonistic, inhospitable cosmos for not cooperating with you in the fulfillment of your desires. You’ll point the finger at belligerent folks and bad luck for the kind of world we all live in. Since this worldview trickles down into every thought you have, you become a person persistently looking for occasions to be offended, and therefore in possession of a whole slew of excuses. 

But we can change all that by shifting our focus. My favorite affirmation when I feel stuck or out of sorts is...(Jot this down and post it conspicuously throughout your home, on the dashboard of your car, at your office, on your microwave oven, and even in front of your toilet!) Remind yourself: Such a stance will be a giant step toward living an 'Excuses Begone! life'.

Thus, you are affirming that what you want is already here and all you have to do is connect to it. This reminds you that what you attract is for your highest good, so you can then let go of the timing issue altogether. Just know that it is here and will arrive on God’s schedule—as does everything that makes the journey from nonbeing to being. 

When I pray, I do so in the spirit of Saint Francis. Rather than ask God to grant him peace, this inspiring man beseech God to “make me an instrument of Thy peace.” In other words, “Let me be like the Source from which I originated, and then I will rest in the knowing that it must be here, on its way, and for my highest good.” As you can see, there’s no room for excuses when you apply this model to your everyday life. 

Whatever I need is already here, and it is all for my highest good. I live in a friendly universe that will support anything or desire that is aligned with the universal Source of all.

The Love of Your Self Comes First

" Noone can truly love you, if you are not truly loving you! Fall in love with you and you will discover what being loved is all about. " - shauna leveringst

Rewrite the word Noone to No-one can truly love you, if you are not truly loving you! In your life you are the most important person. If you are not happy no one around you will be happy. So love self and you intern will make all those around you feel happier. 

By the way Noone (last name) was in my life for 5 years and has passed on. To me this miss spelling of no-one is a message from him. Many thanks. Just to let you know is a way of Spirit reaching and touching you all. Always be aware of the little things that come into our lives.

Is 60 the New 40? Some Thoughts on Staying Young

Is 60 the New 40?

Recently I participated in an interview for a documentary on the subject of aging. “Is 60 really the new 40?” It reminded me of a class I took in college where we explored the theory that what you believe about aging, your expectations, will determine what your experience of aging will be. Do we have to accept the notion that aging must involve deterioration of body and mind? 

I’ve always said that I will never let an old person into my body. That is, I don’t believe in “thinking” old. Although I’ve transitioned through many bodies—a baby, toddler, child, teen, young adult, mid-life and older adult—my spirit is unchanged. I support my body with exercise, my mind with reading and writing, and my spirit with the knowing that I am part of the Divine source of all life. 

Don’t program yourself to break down as you age with thoughts that decline is inevitable. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. When you watch children playing, notice how totally involved they are in what they’re doing, how they run everywhere they go. Notice how they are oblivious to future problems almost as if they have given themselves permission to be free and they show it by becoming totally absorbed in their play. To be more childlike, you don’t have to give up being an adult. 

The fully integrated person is capable of being both an adult and a child simultaneously. Recapture the childlike feelings of wide-eyed excitement, spontaneous appreciation, cutting loose, and being full of awe and wonder at this magnificent universe. The beautiful, vibrant, sprightly, wise, and witty Louis Hay has been celebrating her life ever since she discovered at around 40 years old that your thoughts can change the way you experience things. Louise says, “I return to the basics of life: forgiveness, courage, gratitude, love, and humor.” 

Using these principles in the form of daily positive affirmations, it is possible to program your thoughts and transform your life. We are connected to a Source of Infinite Love within that we can use to heal our lives and help others do the same. Louise teaches mirror work—looking at yourself with love and gratitude always. Giving back, moving ahead, loving life, learning, and growing—this is Louise’s program for a long and happy experience here on this earthly plane. 

Here are some suggestions for rediscovering your inner child: 
Laugh! The child in you, like all children, loves to laugh. Children instinctively know that the more laughter we have in our lives, the better. 

Keep Fantasy Alive Children love to dream, to make up stories, use their imaginations—and so would you if you’d let yourself. A rich fantasy life was not only great fun but also one of the healthiest aspects of your life as a whole. All of life’s best realities start with “childlike” fantasies. 

Be Spontaneous The child inside you wants to be impulsive and adventuresome, without always having to plan things in advance. Spontaneity is in many ways the key to all childlike behavior. 

Accept the World as It Is (Be Trusting) The child inside of you knows how to take things as they come, how to deal most effectively and happily with everything and everyone it encounters on this planet. 

If you can recapture that childlike essence of your being, you can stay forever young at heart. These glorious childlike qualities that can help you enjoy your life each and every day are no further from you than your fingers are from your hands. They are an inalienable part of you. If you really love that child within you, and really care to be a child again in the ways I’m talking about, you cannot help but be at peace with yourself. 

When you have inner peace, you can do just about anything. Give yourself more of that childlike inner peace today by letting yourself be that spontaneous, in-the-moment, fun-loving child again. Or, as Friedrich Schiller put it, “Keep true to the dreams of thy youth.” I am going to be 81 and follow all of the above. Keep on laughing and smiling. Love your life. It really is a wonderful life if you look at it the right way.

Faith, Hope, Carity are as Unreal as Angels, but Do You Believe in Them?

Whether you've seen angels floating around your bedroom or just found a ray of hope at a lonely moment, choosing to believe that something unseen is caring for you can be a life-shifting exercise.― Martha Bec

Angels are always close to you just call on them and one will be there. Remember your guardian Angel has been with you from the beginning of time and is always watching out for you. Just think of him/her and they will be there. You are never alone.

How to Forgive

Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future. 
― Lewis B. Smede

Sound good let us all try it. Also try and understand why the moment happened. Might help to forget.

Lots of Love to you all.

Assertive Vs. Aggressive

“The basic difference between being assertive and being aggressive is how our words and behavior affect the rights and well being of others.” ― Sharon Anthony Bower

We must always think of what we say; not to hurt or to tell others what to do out of turn. Accepting others for what they are and dealing with them is special. Not everyone is like you or me. Sometimes not even a friend but what you say goes a long way. What you say should hit the heart with joy or satisfaction. Not to knock someone down or degrade them. You do not have to like or love them but it is important that you send to them an understanding of who you are and that between you both given the right direction you can make it work. Lighten up and look at the lighter side of what ever it is. WATCH everything come out the way you both want it to be.

Overcoming Fear and Jumping In

The enemy is fear. We think it is hate; but, it is fear.- Gandhi

One of the most common questions people ask me is some variation on: How can I overcome fear and take a chance? A caller to my radio show, for example, couldn’t decide whether to take a job in a new city. It was a good job, but it would require him to leave his life-long home. 

We all fear change and the risks it carries, but I have to say that everything significant I’ve ever experienced has involved change. Our soul wants to expand and grow. When we stay with the familiar, just because it is familiar, we are responding to a fear of failure that doesn’t support our growth. If you believe it will work out, you’ll see opportunities. If you believe it won’t, you will see obstacles. I suggest you consider a radical idea. 

What if there is no such thing as failure? Failing is a judgment that we humans place on a given action. Rather than judgment, substitute this attitude: You cannot fail, you can only produce results. Then the most important question to ask yourself is, “What do you do with the results you produce?” It is better to jump in and experience life than to stand on the sidelines fearing that something might go wrong. 

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds, your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world.” 

So, when we step back and examine our limiting belief, we can recognize that nothing can stand in our way of our goals and dreams but us. By remembering that fear is the acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real, we can step past it and become who and what we want to be. The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world. They simply do not exist in the physical world, even though we talk about them as if they do. 

Embrace faith and fear will withdraw from our lives. Here are some other great quotes on the topic of fear:

 “I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.” - William Allen White  
“Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.” - Helen Keller  

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

Self Esteem Vs. Pride

“There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.” ― John C. Maxwell

Love of the Universe for You!


The World has become increasingly tumultuous leaving so many of us riddled with angst. But light can always be found in what seems like prevailing darkness. These benevolent forces surround you at all times no matter how heavy the dark clouds of loneliness feel. This collective of celestial forces protect, guide and support your brilliant journey of life. Among your circle are the angels. Angels are divine expressions of love and compassion that want nothing more than to awaken and inspire the beautiful light inside of you. When I am feeling lost I call on my Spirit Circle to spark some light in my darkness. I ask the angels to surround me in protection, love and healing. Acknowledging their constant presences fills me with a rush of energy. I feel fortified against the impending darkness. Just that little spark of angelic light can chase away so many shadows. 


They are there to support you, love you unconditionally and help you find happiness. Angels are less instructive than spirit guides. They encapsulate you in a bubble of radiant energy. Holding space for you to fall into stillness and replenish your spirit with divine love and support. Angels respond to any form of request you make. You can speak to them like a friend. You can send them prayers. Light candles asking for their blessings. Simply imagine them all around you. Whatever form you use to connect with your angels will be perfect. Angels are always there… you aren’t really summoning them, they are never gone, you are simply opening up to their light. Enjoy this beautiful journey.

Are You Sleeping?

Don’t Just Be Good, Be Good For Something

There is a common phrase amongst many advanced students on the spiritual path, which is, “Do the next ‘right’ thing.” What this means is that when you feel conflicted and are not sure what move to make or which decision to choose, simply take a stand to “do the next right thing.” In other words, find your quiet center and then allow common sense to show what decision will most likely bring “the most good for the most people.” It also means to get off your butt and do something . . . anything but do not become frozen and thus, without purpose or value. 

There are three levels of consciousness from which we can live our lives: 
1) Average humans who are asleep on the path; 
2) Students of spirituality who are now waking up and searching for a better life; 
3) Living masters who are awake enough to take on a much more responsible role in their lives.

These masters are any of us who choose to “step up” and become more active participants in co-creating Heaven on Earth. But, this latter choice is one that involves inner strength and tenacity, as we must resist the calls of our ego to be less that the divine beings that we truly are. To be a living master means to do our best to manifest all that God is and in every aspect of our lives.

You Can Do It!

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” ― Confucius

So often we want something to come together. "Our true Golds in life" and it seems they cannot be reached. Change what you are doing come into the subject in a different way, use a different approach. Keep on trying look at the whole subject and change the thought and maybe the direction. If it still does not work then realize it may not be good for you. Do not waste time on a subject that is unapproachable. At least for today - Look at it - Think on it. Try again then if it does not work. Let it go Spirit knows better than us what is right for you.

Meanness; Why?

“For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Who wants to loose sixty seconds of peace of mind? Take your anger to a new level try and see what the anger is about within you,(not the rest of the world) is it worth the effort of making you upset. Think of what it does to your body and consciousness, your mind. 

Try and look at the actual problem; can it be fixed, maybe not. Just rise above it and put it aside nothing is worth getting angry and making the adrenaline rush of anger which if energy. Let your beautiful side shine through keep smiling and the world will smile with you. From every smile of love, you will gain more energy from Spirit and love of Mankind is the most important energy. You will be rewarded from the Divine and all the Angels.

Ahh Shucks...

“Some days are just bad days, that's all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day, that's just the way it is!”
Dita Von Teeses

Lets take this quote a little further. Yes, to know the feeling of sadness you have to experience the emotion. That does not mean you have to feel it and feel sorry for your self. Look at life as to how much you have received as joy and happiness. This is why sometimes you have to look back into the past at the good times bring them forward. Just move on and keep on smiling. The SMILE will be your umbrella to your self. The next day will most of the time be better. KEEP ON SMILING!

What is Your Purpose in Life?

“There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why.” ― William Barclay

This is a question almost every one asks of me.
  Why was I born? 

You are born to complete your Karmic adventure with life. Each life time brings you into many adventures. This is called Karma it is how you handle this adventure in a spiritual action that completes that part of your adventure. If it does not work out for you then the next time you are taken to the same adventure you will react differently and hopefully you learned enough from the past that it will become successful and move forward. It's all about your spiritual path not a religion only a way of life. Your happiness is all in your own hands. So think before you leap. Make this leap go as high as you can enjoy it and be happy with what you have accomplished.

Keeping the Faith

In case you haven’t noticed, the world continues to go through incredible changes but this is because consciousness continues to go through incredible changes. In other words, the world is merely mirroring what we all are going through in consciousness. It was never just a fad to talk about things like “The Prophecies of Nostradamus” or the “Shifts of 2012.” All of these changes are completely true and authentic and they are happening now. The world as we know it continues to shift. We are literally shifting from living in a third-dimensional universe with a third-dimensional consciousness toward higher dimensions and higher levels of consciousness. Examples of the evidence and symptoms of this shift in consciousness vary from positive (experiencing profound synchronicities) to negative (watching the systems of the world—such as politics, relationships, and church—fall apart and disappear).

Currently, one of the most common things people are asking about, in workshops and in private sessions, is why so many people who were formerly close friends or partners and so forth, are seemingly shifting away from love and beginning to act so irrationally, possibly attacking others unnecessarily. And, if so many people are finding this to be true, why is it happening? It’s because we are all having our faith tested . . . not the usual “test of faith” that is often attributed to God, such as when we are told that “God is testing our faith in Him.”

Instead, the tests that we are experiencing are actually related to our ability to maintain faith in who God is, who we are, and who others are. In other words, what we are all going through at this time is simply a test that calls us to remain faithful in our ability to know the Divinity of God, as well as the divinity of ourselves and others. The world around us and many people in our lives might be acting “insanely” but we are called to nevertheless remember that the insanity is not who they are—even though it is was they are doing. If they act insanely, that would merely be the insane, ego part of them behaving as such. And since it’s their insane, ego self that is doing this, we might not expect anything else but insanity to come from them. Our test is to know that beneath their insane behavior is their true essence and we are asked to affirm the presence of this true essence—despite their behaviors. A Course in Miracles says, “Holiness cannot BE SEEN except through faith, and your relationship is not holy if your faith in one another is limited.” Now this doesn’t mean we have to enable their behavior or “move in” with them, but it does mean that we have to love their soul (but not their ego)—even if we choose to say goodbye to them.

When Jesus spoke of us having faith, he was not referring to the usual “blind faith” in God that fundamental churches ask us to have. Instead, Jesus was imploring us to PRAY to know the true Divinity of all beings, then to have FAITH that this Divinity is so, and lastly to then TRUST that we will one-day see and experience the incredible results of maintaining such conviction—even if not in this world. This is the only way we can say that we have “passed our test.” And when the New Testament told us that “Faith is the conviction behind things hoped for and the belief in things not yet seen,” it was not actually suggesting that we are to have faith that “the things we are praying for will eventually manifest.” Instead, it was saying that instead of focusing our prayers on material things or material outcomes, we should focus them on “things unseen,” which meant to focus our prayers on spiritual things—attributes of God—such as Love.

Of course faith should not be confused with having a careless trust in potentially harmful people or things. Instead, healthy trust (and faith) comes from having a faith in the true identity of God, Self, and Others. And if/when we begin to doubt, it means we are being faithless and not trusting in who God is nor who we (or others) are. The solution is to return to the first step of praying to remember everyone’s true self. Then we need to restore our faith in the Divine Identity of all beings. And if/when others are not choosing to align with this identity, we are asked to “shake off the dust (residue)” of the experience and walk away but without losing the faith that in their core: everyone is still Divine and all will return to sanity as soon as they choose to do so. In the meantime, we are called to affirm the identity that they themselves may have forgotten. And in so doing, we also rise to a new level (and higher dimension) of consciousness than we have ever been.

The Power of Love. Can You Handle it for Five Days?

There is no greater power in heaven or on earth than pure, unconditional love. The nature of the God force, the unseen intelligence in all things, which causes the material world and is the center of both the spiritual and physical plane, is best described as pure, unconditional love. This God force is the oversoul to which we are always connected because we are localized extensions of that force.

I suggest you embark on an experiment in which you practice only unconditional love for several days. Vow to yourself that you will only allow unconditional loving thoughts to emanate from your consciousness. During this time, refuse to have judgmental or critical thoughts. In your quiet time, think only peace and love. In all of your relationships, think and act in only loving ways. Extend loving thoughts and energy wherever and whenever you encounter anyone or anything.

By pouring love into your immediate environment and practicing gentleness in all of your thoughts, words, and actions, your immediate circle of friends will begin responding in a whole new way. This act becomes expansive very quickly and you can radiate this love to your whole community. You become detached and loving toward all. You are not loving the hostile acts of others, but you are loving the spirit that is blocked in those who are harmful and unloving. When you can live this way and reject all thoughts and actions that are not of an unconditionally loving nature, you will experience the essence of your spirit and discover how to overcome limitations in your life.

What can you expect as you practice a few days of being total unconditional love? If all of your meditations are devoted to love, and if you pour love into every single situation and every single person you meet, and beyond that to everyone on the planet and to the infinity of the universe, you will feel yourself becoming a different person. You will sleep more soundly. You will feel at peace virtually all of the time. Your relationships will be more deeply spiritual. You will begin recognizing the “coincidences” of your life with greater regularity. Your thought forms of unconditional love will begin to produce what you desire without your even being aware of how it is happening.

Can we say more.

What is your Great Work...

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.” ― Steve Jobs

Place yourself in the White Light of Christ using the I Am Presence of Spirit. Ask to be guided and then let Spirit take over. You have to do the work of looking and let your Soul guide you. It is always there.

The Face of Ego

What Does it Look Like....

No one has ever seen the face of ego. It is like a ghost that we accept as a controlling influence in our lives. I look upon the ego as nothing more than an idea that each of us has about ourselves. The ego is only an illusion, but a very influential one. Letting the ego-illusion become your identity can prevent you from knowing your true self. Ego, the false idea of believing that you are what you have or what you do, is a backwards way of assessing and living life.
You’ve probably noticed the word AMBULANCE written backward on the front of a vehicle so that a person seeing it in their rear-view mirror can read it. When you look into a mirror, what you see is backward, too. Your right hand is your left and your eyes are reversed. You understand that this is a backward view that you are seeing and you make the appropriate adjustments. You do not confuse reality with the image in the mirror.
The ego-idea of yourself is very much like the mirror example, without the adjustments. Your ego wants you to look for the inside on the outside. The outer illusion is the major preoccupation of the ego.
The ego-idea has been with us ever since we began to think. It sends us false messages about our true nature. It leads us to make assumptions about what will make us happy and we end up frustrated. It pushes us to promote our self-importance while we yearn for a deeper and richer life experience. It causes us to fall into the void of self-absorption, again and again, not knowing that we need only shed the false idea of who we are.
Our true self is eternal. It is the God force within us. The way of our higher self is to reflect our inner reality rather than the outer illusion. The description given by Sogyal Rinpoche in The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying is a wonderful explanation of this discovery: “Two people have been living in you all of your life. One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attended to.” He refers to this hidden spiritual being as our wise guide.
When we learn to transcend the illusions sponsored by the ego, we can access this wise guide. We can invite in the higher aspects of ourselves to function in their natural, loving, and integrated design.
