Beauty, Blessings and Bounty

Beauty, Blessings and Bounty

We have an infinite number of ways to bridge the gap from any negative thought, emotion or feeling to an experience of more Love and light. Some of my favorites are seeing, contemplating or remembering the beauty, blessings and bounty I have in my Life. The photo for today is one my younger daughter took at sunset near Teton Creek, Idaho. The whitetail doe posed for us, and we got to see her long fluffy tail– very beautiful. 

Beauty in any of its forms has the power to heal us in the blink of an eye. During this winter holiday season we may experience times of intense feelings. To bring myself back to peace I take the time to really see the beauty around me. Sananda has told me that beauty contains Truth. I Love that thought, and I also Love the experience of it. Just being with a beautiful scene, memory or melody can bring us to the Truth that resides within us. That inspiration of our true Beingness can transport us out of any heavy, uncomfortable feelings to Joy. Peace, Love and Joy are part of our soul-infused personality that we can always count on. This holiday season I hope you will take the time to really be blessed by the bounty and beauty of lights, decorations, music, baking with family and friends and singing. Lots of singing.

One of my sister’s expressions that she uses often is “What blesses one blesses All.” When she says that to me I feel so happy because I know that is true. She is a Master at giving. She often sends me boxes of happiness in the mail. Enclosed are her perfect heart-shaped shortbread cookies, her very unique handmade greeting cards filled with loving expressions and usually beautiful clothes. I am instantly smiling and uplifted. 

We are all sensitive souls and can feel others’ heartaches at times. Our world is in transition to a kinder and more awakened state, and in the process many negative states and traumas need to be released. At these times giving blessings, receiving blessings and thanking for all of our blessings are our always available bridges to Love-light. Thank you, Charmaine.

If we feel any lack this holiday season we can alleviate that quickly by prayer blessings. I came across a beautiful and powerful one yesterday on YouTube. It’s a meditation with the fairies in Avalon to bless all of God’s creatures on Earth: people, all animals, plants, fish of the sea, insects, trees and the elements. Prayer blessings are very effective because we are all connected. We are one with All that is. We always, all ways, have something to give and bless with. Jokes, smiles, songs, prayers and our own fun and Joy will bless All including us. And, if you really want to bless the world, learn how to make heart-shaped shortbread and give half of them away. The blessings will be multiplied many fold—beyond your imagination!

I like to always include the qualities of Life, Truth and Love in my blogs as I know those are the Divine qualities that we are creating heaven on Earth with. This morning I couldn’t think of another word that started with “B” for the Love aspect, and Hana said, “bounty.” Yes! Bounty.

The Truth of our creations contain beauty. The Life of our creations contain blessings. The Love of our creations contain bounty. 

There is a saying, “You can’t out-give God,” because your giving in its heartfelt nature returns to you multiplied. Bounty is one of the Divine qualities of our new Earth and our New World. That bounty is here for us now if we will allow it. Let’s bless ourselves, our family, our friends, the animals, Mother Nature and Grandmother Earth in any and all ways that bring us Joy.

Gentleness, Kindness and Appreciation: The Best Bridges to Love

Idaho Deer

Last week we were driving in the mountains in southeastern Idaho, when this stunning whitetail buck came into view. His gentle, wise eyes met mine, and I felt a peace and gentleness from his gaze. Hana was quick enough to stop and capture the image in this photo. I was reminded that deer carry the quality of gentleness and beauty in the animal kingdom. They are also one of the keepers of the spirit of nature. That moment brought me to peace and a reminder to be gentle with myself and others.

I enjoy watching the Ellen Degeneres show. I always laugh and appreciate that her last word of the show is “ be kind to one another.” A little kindness can change a person’s entire life for the better. I have enclosed a link to a YouTube video that is by an astrologer I enjoy, and this week she has included a channeling from St. Francis of Assisi. It’s very encouraging, as she relates the current cosmic alignments of planets, combined with a wave of love from Divine mother are creating a wave of kindness. I am holding that image of a wave of kindness as I know that is the true reality of humanity.

We are coming upon one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. Giving thanks is one of the most powerful ways to experience love. Abraham, through all of the Hicks’ materials, teaches us to have a rampage of appreciation to feel Good, and that feeling Good is our most important way to receive our Good. Thanksgiving is our wonderful opportunity to share that feeling with many other people. The atmosphere of gratitude fills the air. We allow ourselves to give and receive thanks from our family and friends and have the chance to affirm abundance for all. With this wave of kindness at hand we will have the opportunity to sustain Thanksgiving all year long.

Many blessings and Happy Thanksgiving.

The Divine Mystery of Trees

mystery of trees

First graders, six- and seven-year-olds, know that trees are people, too. I had the joy of observing this fact one summer when I taught a series of Nature Camps for children. We went to a local park that had seven young coast redwood trees, and I had seven young participants. The instructions for the children were simple: choose a tree, name it, be with it for a while and ask it what would make it more comfortable. All of the children went right to work with no questions asked. Some quickly gathered rocks from the creek bed to make a circle of protection around their tree, and others went to the fountain to get their adopted tree water. I was delighted to hear the names they chose and how quickly each had made friends with their tree and why they had chosen the names.

Many indigenous people call trees the standing people. I feel this way, too.

A few summers ago I was camping in a new place and felt uneasy. My tent was near a very old oak tree. As I was silently standing by it, all of a sudden I saw a spirit-being who jumped out for just a moment and said: “Don’t worry. I will protect you.” Wow.

I had known about dryads, tree spirits, but I had never seen one. That feeling of protection, wonder and the Divine Mystery of Mother Nature stayed with me and brought me comfort.

A delightful book, How to Catch a Fairy, by Gilly Sergiev, reports: “Every tree, bush, or thicket growing has a female dryad and hamadryad spirit joined to it. Able to separate from its wooden host the dryads are the ancient guardians of trees, much communicated with and contacted by Druids for inspiration and advice.”

I hadn’t discovered this book until months after I had the experience with the Dryad near my campsite oak tree. The photo in that book is very similar to the one I had seen, only mine had jet black hair and the one in the book has light auburn hair.

Eckhart Tolle, in Stillness Speaks, reports “Through you nature becomes aware of itself. Nature has been waiting for you, as it were, for millions of years.”

You will easily communicate with trees if you allow a few moments of silence standing next to one. Even better, if there is grass or moist, soft earth underneath your new friend, stand barefoot. Five minutes is plenty to breathe in the prana and enjoy any inspiration or thoughts you receive. Or, ask the tree, “How can I make you more comfortable?” This will get the conversation going. My wish is that you will continue this practice and enjoy the peace, wisdom and joy it will give you.

The photos accompanying this post are of trees in my front yard. Each has a very special healing frequency that I take advantage of often. I asked that they send that bridge of love-light to you. They are two of the 85 varieties of Eucalyptus trees. Eucalyptus can have a bad reputation for breaking limbs, falling over and being messy, though that is only one very common variety. Check into the other 84 varieties that are beautiful with gorgeous flowers and fragrances and not as many “vices.”

Another valuable new (2017) booklet you may enjoy as much as I have is The Wisdom of Trees Oracle: Oracle Cards for Wisdom and Guidance by Jane Struthers. This booklet comes with a deck of beautifully illustrated cards. The booklet contains a section for each of 40 trees on their history, scientific facts, legends around each and message from the Deva of each. Also, Jane explains in detail how to tune into trees. Highly recommended. The quality of the cards, the art and the research included in an easy-to-understand format is that of a much more expensive deck with booklet. Enjoy. The trees are missing you.

Kudos — 7 Spirit Dolphins

painting done by my youngest daughter, Hana when she was 14
Painting by my youngest daughter, Hana, when she was 14.

There is a legend that says 12 times in humanity’s history the Golden Dolphins have wanted to share their secrets, and 12 times humanity was deemed not ready. Now is the 13th time, and humanity is ready to receive the wisdom of the ages for creating a Nova Earth, a heaven on Mother, or Grandmother, Earth. You, Dear Heart, are here to create that Paradise, and the Dolphins in Spirit or in body are here to help you.

So, let’s get started.

You are as innocent as the Dolphin’s smile. You are a Divine Child. In that part of you, your child within, you can receive messages from the Dolphin consciousness as they have abilities to communicate telepathically, as you do. Water is the wonderful Love medium that helps us receive Spiritual messages, whether in the deep ocean or taking a bath or shower. The Golden, or Spirit, Dolphins want us to remember our Oneness with all that is. Awakening to all of our mystical and miracle abilities will happen when we understand that these abilities are commanded by Love, with our understanding our Oneness. Telepathy, psychic awareness, psychokinesis and advanced manifesting techniques will do no harm when commanded by Love.

Dolphins are very willing and eager to teach us about the power and joy of conscious group awareness and creativity. Working together towards common goals we will have so much more time left over for fun. Dolphins work together to move a school of fish close to shore, encircling them so their meal is easy to catch and there is plenty for all– with time left over for play and fun.

When I first began channeling, I learned easily how to channel Sananda, though my main obstacle was doubt and my feeling of being unworthy. With practice, healing and Spiritual growth over the years, this practice and ability became very real and very helpful for myself, friends and family. Channeling Dolphins is an entirely different story that is still being written.

Kudos has taught me in ways that have taken me years to understand. A couple of years after opening to channel I felt compelled to learn how to scuba dive. Fun. Yay! Joy— until our third open-Water dive. Our new instructor decided to take us to an advanced dive spot that our previous teacher had told us not to dive until we were experienced. Fear crept in, and I wondered why she was taking us to this spot when our lessons included taking off our masks and dropping and and retrieving our weight belts. The ocean surge above us became so strong (we were down about 25 feet) that it was dizzying. My fear turned to terror as I felt drowning may be a possibility, when I heard the sweetest sound in my awareness. It was Kudos.

They said: “We didn’t bring you here to drown you. We want you to feel us in our element.” I regained calm and finished the lessons. The next dive was pure bliss.

About a week later we had our deep-Water, 60-feet dive. For this dive, I understood what Kudos was teaching me: the peace, beauty, silence and bliss of the deep ocean. Indescribable.

One fun part was seeing all of the sea life alive and swimming. The kelp beds swaying, clams, sea snails, star fish, sand dollars and scallops all moving and colorful. Fish and baby sea lions nipping at our fins. All together and moving. Such a contrast to the weathered and bleached lifeless forms on the beach. Movement, harmony, silence, peace and beauty were my rewards for trusting Kudos’ guidance. I can remember every moment of that dive, even though it was 30 years ago.

A wonderful book that can take you into the Spirit of Dolphins energetically is Angels of the Sea: Sacred Dolphin Art of Atlantis, by Michele Gold. One of my favorite books of all time. She manifested her trip to the Bahamas to swim with Wild Dolphins all with the help of Spirit Dolphin guidance.

Her art translates her experiences in vivid images that take the viewer into the Dolphin world and consciousness.

LOVE, Feelings and Water

LOVE, Feelings and Water

“Some people feel the Rain, others just get wet.”  – Bob Marley

When we understand our relationship with feeling, Love and Water we can make great strides in our spiritual growth.

Water is the mystical element and is a demonstration of Love in the physical realm. When we contemplate all that Water is and does the conclusion leads us straight to Love. Water can be a solid, liquid, vapor and merge so eloquently into air that it becomes an invisible dew point. In its natural state, it is colorless and tasteless. Water contains the essence of the Divine Mystery, LOVE.

A vivid reminder of the Divine Aspect of Water came to me while driving through Eastern Oregon. Driving East for miles and hours, on the left side of the highway was Badlands State Park. A very desolate landscape. So much so that you could easily see why the region was called “Bad Lands.” Very dry with no green to be seen. No visible birds or animals, desolate and depressing.

On the right side of the highway the scene was the complete opposite. Wind turbines had provided the electricity to pump Water from the nearby creek to create a lush and thriving green farming landscape. Lots of activity with the prosperous feeling of a rich farm and cattle ranch. The flowers, green alfalfa, horses and bustling farm activities made me feel happy. Water had turned The so-called Badlands into a beautiful and productive lively landscape.

We know this to be true, that Water is life. An important part of our spiritual growth is to let Water help us heal our emotional body, our feelings. Our feelings, our Love nature, hold the keys to our connections with our truth and our own mystical Divinity. Water is One, and connects us with all that is. The Persian poet Rumi remarks: “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.” We are like that. We are one with All in our spirit. Water teaches us that oneness.

One of my favorite articles about Water is found in Restoring the Earth: Visionary Solutions from the Bioneers, by Kenny Ausubel. A contributing author is Jennifer Greene. Though her article is only 10 pages long it is concentrated wisdom of the holy aspects of Water gleaned from a lifetime of studying Water. Each time I read her article I learn something more and am inspired to do more of my own research with Water as Love and the Divine Mystery. Water, Love, is always available and part of me—Oneness in form.

The introductory paragraph holds the keys to the profound beingness of Water.

In this sacred element of nature, she reveals a magical dance of cosmic forces played out through this remarkable vessel of universal dissolution that is so forgiving, yet powerful enough to wear down a rock over time with its Watery persistence.

We can hold our glass of Water with Love and gratitude and make that Water more pure, and healthful and add to the Love of all Water.  As we respect and Love Water, our own feeling nature will be healed and will contribute to the healing of humanity and Grandmother Earth.

Channeling Your High Self

Photo and mandala by Nina Wilkins
Photo and Mandala by Nina Wilkins

My Channeling teachers, Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer, told me Channeling is not for the faint of heart. Over the last 30 years of being a professional Channel, I have found that to be true. Along the way my heart has been strengthened in ways I could not have imagined. The work of practicing Channeling has brought me healing, peace, fun, compassion and very many unexpected joyful manifestations. If You are drawn to learning this skill and practicing it, I feel sure Channeling will enhance Your life and spiritual growth.

I once heard an Olympic coach say that it takes 10 years, four hours a day, to build an Olympic athlete. I told this to my friend, Janette, and we decided then to practice Channeling every day for 10 years, and we did. The time spent was well worth the effort on so many levels.

If You are not drawn to Channeling an Ascended Master, or High Level guide, maybe Your interest lies in connecting more strongly with Your High Self. A dear friend of mine, Max, was a minister and incredible professional artist. Her religion taught her not to listen to a Channel. We were close friends, and I needed practice, so she willingly let me give her readings and then she gave me feedback. Over many months she saw the benefit and validity of my Channeling and became more open to it. She came to realize that she was Channeling an artist, Paolo Veronese, who had been helping her with her painting.

The times require us to open to our spiritual gifts for our own peace of mind and to help others find calm during these turbulent times. Channeling a High Level guide does not interfere with Your own free will but enhances it. Conscious Channeling, not trance Channeling, is what I’m speaking of. Your intuition and awareness are strengthened, confirmed and affirmed with this practice.

One day I was out running errands and hoping to receive money in the mail. I looked in my P.O. Box, and it was empty so I decided to do the things that didn’t require cash. I left the post office and was about a half mile away when I felt I had to go back and check again. I did. When I opened my box, right at that exact moment the clerk’s hand reached in and gave me the letter with the cash. That had never happened before or since. Just at that moment I opened my box, he put the letter in. I laughed, and so did he. I live for these synchronicities and small miracles. My day completely changed as I had the financial ability then to complete my list with a smile and feeling my Divine Guidance.

There are many types of intuition and we all have most of them, even if they have not awakened yet in our consciousness. In 1982 I took my undergraduate degree in International Relations at San Francisco State University. One of my minors was in a new program, “Nexus, Science and Humanities Convergence.” The new Science at that time, which is common now, was the difference in right- and left-brained thinking. The right being artistic, intuitive, dreamy and mystical, or unexplainable in current cognitive structures; and left hemisphere being logical, scientific, rational and possibly provable and tangible to the normal senses. The many courses I took were not only fascinating but were confirming of what I knew of my own intuition at the time. One overall theme of all of the courses was that we in the West had a split brain, which gave us a split culture. With our whole brain working in many people now, we are creating a whole and healed world.

On a frequency line of color, light and sound there are an infinite variety of notes, colors and light. Radio stations each have their own Channels. Our own physical, mental and emotional chakras have their own unique color frequencies. The combinations of color, music and light are infinite. So are the Channeling frequencies. Meditation, clairvoyance, intuition, Channeling, mediumship, contemplation, Beingness and Your still, small voice are all different frequencies. The skill of consciously channeling a High Level guide through Your own High Self, who is also of a High Frequency when not overshadowed by doubt and disbelief, offers a variety of wisdom according to Your own desires, dreams and interests.

If You would like to learn how to Channel, start with Sanaya and Duane’s book Opening to Channel: How to Connect with Your Guide.

I offer coaching also. You may contact me by clicking here.

The photo above for You includes the light frequencies of Divine Love, rose Quartz, clear Quartz for increasing the Love and amethyst to affirm Your crown chakra. The green Big Sur Jade is for peace and prosperity and a moon stone to awaken Your right brain intuition.

Calling All Unemployed Angels

Calling all unemployed angels

On my spiritual journey I have studied many religious texts, read many spiritual books and have taken many wonderful, meaningful and helpful workshops. Earth life presents many challenges and creates situations that, if we are willing, allow for quantum leaps in our spiritual understanding and growth.

I discovered Angels at a time in my life where all that I had learned seemed too difficult to put into practice. My laundry list of difficulties seemed too overwhelming. In prayer I heard, “Call on Angels.” I had always called on Divine Love. Angels? How do I do that? I was led to a series of books by Terry Lynn Taylor teaching very simple and easy ways to work with Angels– just ask.

Angels opened up a new chapter in my intuitive and channeling practice. Realizing that infinite Love, Grace and creativity are always available to us, along with Healing, I learned that we are given Free Will from our Creator, so we need to ask for help from Angels and our High Self and allow the help that is given. The most wonderful discovery was that all we need do with Angels is ask and allow.

Over the last 30 years I have experienced many miracles on all levels of my life. A funny but very helpful one occurred moments before I was about to teach a Metaphysical class, in my home, for 14 students. I was preparing our lunch when I noticed the sink was clogged and backing up, and then noticed the bathrooms were backing up and everything was clogged and stopped up. I prayed and heard that water corresponds with the emotional body and the students coming were going to heal emotionally. We were all stopped up and blocked in various areas. The picture of having this big mess at our class was so upsetting. I heard, “Call all unemployed, available Angels to clear up the drains.” I did, and within moments I heard a loud pop and all the drains and pipes cleared. The cleanliness and clarity was very important for me to bring in the higher frequencies for our class. Wonderful. So easy: ask the Angels and be willing to  allow your Good to manifest.

Over the years I have learned about specific Angels that have Mastered an infinite variety of subjects from plumbing, to Master Healers, to Prosperity, to any quality in the Universe of Good. The really wonderful thing is all you need to do is ask. You don’t need to know their names, though often they will tell you their names if you listen. We all have at least one guardian Angel that will guide, protect and intercede for us when we are in danger. We need not ask at these times. We do need to ask for help for other times, subjects and situations as Angels will not interfere. They must be invited.

If this subject of asking Angels for help is new for you I’m guessing you will have whole new vistas and positive life experiences open up for you. If it is a reawakening to all the help that is at hand for you, great! Each time we heal or expand, or grow with the help of our High Selves and Angels, everyone we share the Earth with benefits. Even the flowers, trees and pets that live near you perk up and feel the love. I invite you to explore working and playing with Angels. I work with Archangel Michael for protection, Archangel Raphael for Healing, and a variety of Earth Angels for all manner of blessings, clearings and Joy.

Flowers have been called Earth Angels, and I believe that they are.

Crystals and Creativity

Crystals and Creativity
Mandala & photo by Nina Wilkins

We are creators as we are Divine Children. When we co-create with the Divine in us we help bring Heaven to Earth. Engage yourCchild within in the joy of creating, and you will be a Peacemaker and Healer of the Earth.

Recently I have been learning about Crystals. There are many new books out with great information on healing with Crystals, making gem elixirs and simple ways to use Crystals to enhance your Life. I’ve learned that one of their qualities is to radiate frequencies of Light.  I’m learning from these books, which I’ve found very inspiring and helpful, in addition to my intuition as I’ve used Crystals for 30 years in my intuitive practice. Crystals are truly magical. I hope you will treat yourself to one or a few.

Crystals for Healing: The Complete Reference Guide by Karen Frazier. This is an extensive and detailed guide, though it is very simple to use. The photographs are excellent. It is organized in easy to follow parts: basics, shopping, preparing, remedies for mind, heart and soul, and the super helpful Crystal profiles. She lists in her reference section The Crystal Bible, by Judy Hall, which is another favorite of mine.

Gem Water: How to Prepare and Use More than 130 Crystal Waters for Therapeutic Treatments, by Michael Gienger and Joachim Goebel. This little book is packed with great information and how to precisely make these waters at home. They are both Crystal gem water Healers with experience in research and practice. Also really good photos of 105 specimens. Enjoy.

Healing with Gemstones, by Pamela Louise Chase and Jonathan Pawlik, rounds out the basics in a very spiritual, insightful way. They talk to the overlighting Devas of the gems and receive detailed channeled information on the Healing properties of the Crystals. For example:,The Pink Tourmaline Deva says: “I teach you that Unconditional Love cannot be possessed or manipulated. My energies help you to clear your attachment about how love ‘should’ be expressed in an experience when your expectations become too high or too fixed, and the object of your devotion deviates from those expectations, I challenge you to let go of your expectations. I can also help you remain in a state of balance by teaching you to enjoy the flow of your life, wherever it takes you.” This book doesn’t contain any photos but is rich in Spiritual insight.

The photo above is of a mandala I created today for you. Each of the Crystals radiates specific frequencies of Love-Light for You. Rose quartz for Divine Love, pure quartz crystal to transmit Light and purity, Big Sur Jade for good luck and Peace, agate for Peace and calm, many sea shells for the many varied Gifts from the sea, pearls for your wisdom and amethyst for your spiritual clarity. Enjoy. The Light has no boundaries, just like sunlight.

Another fun thing to do with Crystals is to create a gratitude ceremony for Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature. Take any Crystal that you are not using and joyfully give it back to the Earth in thanks. Bury it near your favorite tree or any spot that you feel is right. The Earth loves her Crystals and generously gives them to us and is happy when we use and appreciate them. If they are just tossed in a drawer and not really used you will reap the benefits of generosity by giving them back.

Very much love to you,
Nina.

Please note the disclaimer here.

Love, Gratitude, and Forgiveness

Love, Gratitude and Forgiveness

Love, Gratitude and Forgiveness are Divine frequencies that hold us in Real Life, not in illusion that is created by our beliefs in separation from the Universe of Good.

When we go to, and are in, Divine frequencies, we are with God. We are then one with God in our own belief. We are always one with God in Reality. When we accept this atonement for ourselves we are fulfilling what A Course in Miracles, Foundation for Inner Peace, states is our only Real responsibility.

Practicing these qualities will never fail to bring you to the next highest vibration you can accept. Soon, even though a moment ago you were in a disturbing feeling, you can keep “turning the other cheek” and focusing on your Good. Your Divinity. Your Goodness. Your Innocence. You can accept your Self Acceptance and know you are Unified with Divine Love.

Both of these courses, A Course in Miracles and Unified: A Course on Truth and Practical Guidance from Babaji (by Roger G. Lanphear), have helped me so much over the years to grow spiritually and to help others heal and find Peace. When Babaji tells us we need to accept our Self Acceptance, at first I thought that was redundant. After reflection I realized that we can have a drink of water, but to accept it we have to drink it. When we accept our Self Acceptance it is so much easier to accept others’.

We are all so unique that only our Creator and ourselves really know us. I feel that is how the Divine calls us home, to Peace, Love and Joy.

Love, Gratitude, and Forgiveness

Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature and You, Dear Heart

Would you like to have a simple and easy way to feel refreshed, energized and ready for a new day?

Yes?

When possible do this right at sunrise, or any time of day. Walk into your yard or a natural place and stand barefoot on Grandmother Earth. Turn slowly and thank each of the directions: East, South, West and North. As you do this, sense that each direction has a different quality and feel to it. When I face North, I feel Peaceful, mentally clear and calm. When I face South I feel my child within is ready to play. Facing East always brings me reverence and a willingness to have a new spiritual perspective, even in just small ways. I’ve always loved facing West, as I’ve had the joy of living near the Ocean for most of my life. Looking out to the Western Ocean horizon always brings me expansion, Peace, and creativity.

Next, feel the enlivening Earth energy rising up in you and giving you refreshment. Bend over at the waist, let your arms hang freely and just let go of any worries, doubts or fears. Slowly stand up straight, lift your arms up, open and reach for the sky, and allow the Father Sky Love-Light to fill you up with fresh, life-giving air. Thank each of the Elementals: Air, Water, Fire and Earth for the liveliness they give you.

Next, if you are able to, jump up and down. You are refreshed, reset and ready for a new day.

Today, I’d like to share books and a website that I have found to be valuable. Each have inspired, uplifted and healed me in a very real way.

“In order to enter a deeper relationship with Nature, I was required to become a participant with Nature rather than continue in the role of onlooker. I did not find this at all easy. I was propelled into a metaphysical reality, a reality I did not enter willingly… We come to this planet with a clearly defined destiny, but as soon as we take on human form, we forget it. Life then carries us kicking and screaming toward our perfect goal while we try our hardest to abort the mission.” – Journey into Nature: A Spiritual Adventure by Michael J. Roads

I love this book as it is a real journey into Nature where you meet Pan, the Spirit of Nature, and the beingness of trees, minerals, rivers and dolphins. A truly transformative delight.

The next book came to me as a very welcome surprise one Christmas, from my sister, Charmaine. I had wanted to read it, as in the early 1980’s I had the opportunity of visiting Findhorn in Scotland. The author, Dorothy Maclean, was one of the three founders of the Findhorn community. To Hear the Angels Sing is a book you can read over and over again and feel it is the first time. It is rich with meaning and understanding of the spiritual intelligence and unconditional Love in and of Nature.

“It is said that God is Love. This is so, and as creation becomes more conscious, it expresses greater love. The essence of life, no matter what its consciousness, is Love. This is true of all kingdoms, and man’s greatest contribution to life on the planet is consciously to love, and so to bring health, vigor and beauty to life.” – The Landscape Angel, To Hear the Angels Sing

Today, more than 40 years later, the Findhorn community has become a thriving Ecovillage offering many subjects in Biodynamic gardening and all the principles Findhorn is based on. The main theme is to become beneficial stewards of Grandmother Earth.

Perelandra-ltd.com is a site you could spend days on. It contains Machaelle Wright’s books (some you can read on the site), flower essence products and videos containing her products and lovely views of her Center for Nature Research in Jeffersonton, Virginia. This site is a treasure for sure. Enjoy.
