A Higher Perspective

When I was growing up in the 1950s, my mom,  dad,  sister and I would all sit on the couch and watch TV together. Most of the programs were G-rated, even though that was before ratings.

When we were watching and a commercial came on, I would ask my mom, “Is the show over?” I really wanted to see the end and feared I had missed it.

She often teased me about this because I asked that so often.

Now in my adult life I still have that feeling that I am going to miss the “heaven on earth” promised by the Golden Age of Aquarius. That passes quickly as I observe little things that are the beginnings of The New Earth, NOW.

This last Sunday I woke up to a moment of Heaven on Earth as I saw the sunrise and the full moonset. I don’t often get to see the sunrise here in the mountains, as there is often cloud cover or fog in the early morning. Seeing the Full moon set is also a rarity. We had what is called here “a bluebird day.” Spectacular clear blue sky with white barked aspens, which are  leaf-less, giving a stark, beautiful backdrop to the Grand Tetons on the horizon.

I haven’t missed heaven on earth as it is here now in these serene moments that I get to receive into my awareness.

Thank you, Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature.

Sananda has taught me that we live in a holographic Universe. The great is in the small and the small in the great. Rumi has taught us that the one drop of water contains the whole ocean.

So, my dear readers, we can collect these moments and add them to the collective consciousness of heaven on earth until it is evident for all.

Don’t worry. Be happy. We didn’t miss it.

Be aware of the moments you are adding to the whole. My higher self often reminds me, “one grain of rice” — as a thought, happy feeling, compassion, joy, appreciation, being the love that you are — does add to the creation, no mater how small.

 These small actions can tip the scale to goodness for all sentient beings living on earth.

So smile today– laugh, jump, dance or Love all the good that is here just for YOU.

Mother Teresa reminds us: do small things with great love.

You will reap the reward of feeling very good. 

The videos today from Lorna Byrne demonstrate how we can help ourselves, and Mother Nature, by growing in LOVE.

We have entered the beautiful Golden Age of Aquarius.

The main qualities of our new time on miraculous Grandmother Earth with her daughter Mother Nature are: The Power of NOW, Working with and healing our Earth and Mother Nature, Prosperity for All Sentient beings to Flourish and Grow, Teamwork, Cooperation, Unity, Oneness, Creativity, and LOVE.

These are the main qualities, though we are not limited to these. Each are infinite in expression.

LOVE is the operative quality. The power of Love.

All of these qualities are available for all of us. When in your quiet, contemplative time, you can acknowledge and put your attention on one or all and they will be more tangible for you. Like the wind behind your back or flowing downstream.

Each of these qualities have a Reality that we can tap into.

The two YouTube videos I’ve included today show amazing people and organizations that embody these qualities and inspire and show us how we, too, can make a huge difference for the Healing of Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature. 

The cleaning of the Oceans will allow the fish populations to return with sustainable fishing practices. Our clean Oceans can feed one billion people.

Jane Goodall, in the video below, inspires us at a very deep level. Her work just keeps expanding and growing. She embodies all of the qualities above as a Global teacher for The GOOD. Her last name says it all. 

The Golden Age of Aquarius

What we notice increases. What we notice and feel with love increases exponentially.

I enjoy noticing and feeling appreciation for great and small signs that the Aquarian Age is here NOW.

The account of change in the corporate world in the video below, expresses all of the main qualities of the new world, The Golden Age of Aquarius, which is here Now.

Love, Oneness, Unity, Teamwork, Cooperation, Prosperity for All, sharing, and caring for  Nature, Grandmother Earth, Creativity, and the power of Now are the main qualities of our New World. 

Each of these qualities is infinite in expression and an aspect of The Divine, Our Source and Creator.

Love is the answer.

In my spiritual studies over the years, I have heard the expression, “You can’t out give God.”

As you give from your heart you will receive from the Universe of Good in some surprising and miraculous ways.

This is a very bountiful Universe with plenty of Love, food, Creativity and every Good thing for All sentient Beings.

Love

Love. Today is all about Love, the strongest force in the Universe that is gentle and kind.

Lorna Byrne sees angels. She has written seven books about them. Her memoir is Angels in My Hair.

Her video today is one of the best teachings on mediation I’ve seen.

The other gift for you is from Leo Buscaglia, who was affectionately called the “Love Doctor.” He taught a course at USC called “Love 101” and wrote several books. His book, Love, was one of my favorites, and I used to carry it around with me– also Living, Loving & Learning.

Enjoy this article by Leo Buscaglia that a friend sent me. It says it All.

GOD’S WIFE
An eye witness account from New York City , on a cold day in December, some years ago: A little boy, about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on the roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering with cold.

A lady approached the young boy and said, ‘My, but you’re in such deep thought staring in that window!’

‘I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes,’ was the boy’s reply.

The lady took him by the hand, went into the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her.

She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel.

By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks. Placing a pair upon the boy’s feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes.

She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him. She patted him on the head and said, ‘No doubt, you will be more comfortable now.’

As she turned to go, the astonished kid caught her by the hand and, looking up into her face with tears in his eyes, asked her:

‘Are you God’s wife?’

Our inner being, our inner child who is innocent, is all love, like these children.

Love,
Nina

Joy

Such a small word for such a big, wonderful, important feeling.

We are made out of Love, which contains joy.

Esther Hicks, Emmet Fox and Ernest Holmes, to name a few, all teach us the spiritual importance of joy. Esther has spent the last 30 years in books and workshops teaching us how important it is to feel good, to create a life we love to live. The law of attraction demonstrates, always, that like attracts like.

The Hicks material goes as far as to say that feeling good is our number one priority. They give simple instructions: meditate 15 minutes every morning. Do a “rampage of appreciation.” Write in your book of positive aspects. This process is your point of attraction for your good. Appreciation is love, and love is the most important part of attracting your good.

This simple formula, done consistently, will bring you to joy, as joy is your essential self: love.

Joy is within you, as you are love.

Is it that simple?

Yes, I believe it is.

I do feel that joy is your #1 bridge of love-light to your High Self, your higher consciousness: inspiration, intuition, peace, fun, harmony and purpose.

My higher guides always tell me that if I am feeling joy I am doing my purpose.

In the video above, the Dalai Lama and his friend Desmond Tutu are creating a Divine World mission of joy. I have watched the video several times and can’t help but smiling and feeling joy each time. It shows us how radiating joy and laughter is contagious. 

In these times we can all use more joy and humor.

This link takes you to their web page for Mission: JOY.

We are all bridges of love and light to the New Earth.

Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature are leading us.

All of the Elemental Kingdoms are cheering us on and teaching us by being themselves. Water shows us the true nature of Love, miraculous. Moving and giving life to whatever it touches: clear, whole, moving and constantly changing form. Air: breathing us to our Divine Nature and connection with all that is. Fire: sunshine, starlight, the perfect manifestation of love-light. A continuous and eternal symbol of a loving Father-Mother God. And Earth, our home. Earth, so beautiful that legend has it that visitors from many star systems come here to witness the wonder and limitless  beauty of her.

Sananda has told me many times that the birthing of the New Earth will be grass roots changes.  You and I in our thoughts, feelings, words and deeds are bringing Heaven to Earth.

Appreciation of this incredible home opens our creativity and inspires us to bring our own unique contribution to this incredible healing and awakening. 

Today, I wanted to share the YouTube video above with you as these lovely women have inspired me to give more to our Mother Earth. I love my Irish Heritage. If you give yourself the time to just relax into the video in a receptive mode you may experience a new opening to the magic and mystery of working with the land. Being with the myriad of nature spirits and the infinite variety of weather, seasons, plants, animals and elements can give you a new lease on an abundant life that is all around you but often unseen.

This exploration can give you untold experiences of joy and wonder.

I read, but I can’t remember the reference, that a scientist calculated that if we planted one trillion trees, climate change would be averted. The natural balance of climate would return.

Your one tree planted and cared for is the beginning.

Mother Nature Is Now

The Aquarian Age quality of NOW, is easily brought to us by being in Mother Nature.

The YouTube videos for today contain the sounds, colors, beauty and creatures of our amazing Planet. They encourage and inspire us to go out and be in Nature so we can feel and experience the Elemental Kingdoms firsthand.

Now is not a measure of time. It is an awareness of Divine Presence that wells up within us when we are conscious and present.

When we are unconscious our mind often jumps to past or future thinking.

We create our future by BEING conscious and aware in this moment.  We drop into the “Deep  I,” as Eckhart Tolle calls our presence.

Today, if you wish, you can use these short videos to point to your own still, small voice. The sounds and beauty of nature remind us of our own connections to all that is. Our own amazing and miraculous planet that is our home enlivens our being.

In this state of reverence and appreciation we open to our creativity.

Joy easily comes to us. Love and creativity are our true nature. 

With these qualities at hand and recognized, the scones we bake are heavenly and very nutritious. The sweater we knit has a warmth and glow within it. The letter we write to a friend has a healing and nurturing quality to it. We may just be inspired to write a book or paint a sunset.  

Our lives become radiant and express LOVE.

Mother Nature, Now and Our New Earth

I love books.

Books have been my teachers, friends and healers since I was nine years old.

Our Aquarian Age, that we have entered, includes several main qualities that will hold us in very new frequencies as a Unified consciousness: Mother Nature, Now, and a New Earth are among them.

For your summer reading, and for me, my ongoing reading, I have included my favorite of  Eckhart Tolle’s powerful books that are about these three qualities: Stillness Speaks, The Power of Now and A New Earth. Each teaches us that we have a deep connection to our unique selves that can be easily reached and discovered simply by being in the Now, stillness and breathing. BEING.

Each book has its own special teachings.

Over my own conscious spiritual journey I have discovered many spirit guides who have taught me “to be still and know that I am God.”

The Now helps us connect deeply with Presence, which brings us joy, wisdom and peace.

I have used each of these books, over the years as inspirational guides and teachers.

The first, Stillness Speaks, contains one of my favorite ideas: “Nature can bring you to stillness. That is its gift to you. When you perceive and join with nature in the field of stillness, that field becomes permeated with your awareness. That is your gift to nature.

“Through you Nature becomes aware of itself. Nature has been waiting for you, as it were, for millions of years.”

Next is The Power of Now. This is a spiritual guide and course. The Now contains our freedom and joy. Our true being.

Eckhart’s  A New Earth, Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose, teaches us how to transcend our ego-based state of consciousness. We increase our happiness and help awakening humanity to be fully present. Being conscious allows us the knowingness that we are all One and are connected to ALL that is.

I’m sure if you decide to jump into any or all of these books they will take you well into the Fall, or Winter, Spring, or maybe back to Summer again.

Happy reading and experiencing the joy of being in the Now.

Mother Nature

To continue my favorite summer reading books, I’ve included Sharing Nature with Children by Joseph Cornell. I would add to the title “Children of all ages.” Nature can bring out the child in us and is part of the reason I love Mother Nature so much.

This summer, or any time, I invite you to try some of the exercises in this book. One of my favorites I used teaching a group of First Graders is “feel the heart beat of a tree.” Another very popular one is “meeting a tree.”

Today, I’ve also included another short YouTube video of Muir Woods. It was filmed just last week, so you will receive the summer feeling. Also a ride across Golden Gate Bridge is included. The park is now currently open for visitors.

The Japanese term for a walk in Nature is “forest breathing.” Breathing in nature makes me feel part of this miraculous creation and part of all that is.

I’ve included here an excerpt about John Muir from Sharing Nature with Children:

“John Muir would sometimes become so engrossed in his wandering in the Sierras that a one-day outing would become a trek lasting several days or even weeks. And in his travels he had none of the ‘essential supplies’ like food, warm clothing or even sleeping blankets. He was sustained by his love of beauty and solitude. Listen to his description of the inspiration that nourished him in wild places:

‘Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer… Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energies, while cares will drop off like Autumn leaves.'”

That’s how I feel when I have only been walking in the woods for a few minutes. Wonderful.

My dad told me a story of his experiences with his dad growing up. His dad would give them each two baked potatoes– one for each pocket– and they would walk in the forest for the entire day into the evening. He loved those times.

We are made out of Nature and are part of Nature, not separate. A friend once told me that if I was lonely to make friends with a tree. I have done that and have realized we can make friends with any part of nature and feel whole. 

We, humanity, are growing in the understanding that our Love and stewardship of our dear Grandmother Earth cannot be delayed any longer.
