Jump, Play, Love

I first met Kudos, 7 Spirit  Dolphins, in 1983 at a Healing workshop in Jackson, Wyoming.  After one of the lectures, the presenter had us sit in a circle and pass around a speaking stick. The “stick” was a long (about 10 inches), clear crystal wand. I had never seen anything like it. 

At that time, public speaking terrified me– especially impromptu, with people I had never met. We proceeded around the circle of 20 participants, and I was fascinated by what people had to say about the question, “What simple thing could you do to make your life better?” I loved hearing the different points of view, but noticed how long, complex and difficult each person’s answer to the question was. Then, it was a 12-year-old boy’s turn. He quickly answered saying,” I would try new things, and meet new people and be in nature having fun.” 

All of us, the adults in the circle, laughed and agreed: that is it! Each of the adults had had long, drawn-out responses with many pauses in their answers. All these years later, his is the only response I remember.

After the close of the circle, several of the participants came up to me to tell me I had Spirit Dolphins swimming around the top of my head. I was surprised and amazed and didn’t really know what to do with that information. I had always loved surfing, the Oceans and Dolphins, but I didn’t really understand I could channel Dolphins until I took an Opening to channel workshop in 1987 with Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer. Again, several of the other participants saw the Spirit Dolphins around me. “Wow,” I thought, “what should I do with this?”

Over and over again I would hear, “Jump, Play, Love, swim and eat herring.” Over the many years, that is the only verbal guidance I have received from them except one other phrase: “The legend of the Golden Dolphin. Twelve Times in Humanity’s history, the Golden Dolphins have wanted to share their knowledge with Humanity but realized they weren’t ready. Now is the 13th time, and Humanity is ready.”

The other unusual aspect of that circle that has unfolded in my life, and grown exponentially since then, is my resonance and channeling abilities with Kudos. They have helped me develop my telepathy, energy work, clairaudience, clairsencience, empathy and channeling ability all on nonverbal levels. They have helped me enormously in my ability to feel and communicate with the Spirit of nature and understand that everything is connected.

So far, that is what I have received. I’m guessing more will be revealed as we move more into Nova Earth, Oneness, Love, Creativity, Co-operation, Joy, Fun and Unity.

In the meantime of now I am following their guidance to Jump, Play, Love, Have Fun and Eat herring. My favorite.

Silence, Stillness and Simplicity

Three words that carry so much power in our lives. These states can often be overlooked in our busy, noisy world. Each, when practiced regularly can bring us to the realization that our happiness comes from within.

“Be still, and know that I am God” says it all. Silence is golden.

Stillness Speaks, Eckhart Tolle’s powerful book, reminds us of our Divine Presence within.

Simplicity shows us we can quickly return to our Highest Self just by breathing and touching our heart. (HeartMath Institute, Gregg Braden).

Happiness springs up easily from that stillness within because Joy is our true Nature.

“The Music of Silence” is a beautiful demonstration of these principles. It is an autobiographical movie about the life of one of my all time favorite singers, Andrea Bocelli. His singing and voice/life coach teaches him that in order to have the best depth of quality from his voice he needs to practice Silence.

Andrea has achieved more than his best quality by practicing silence. He has achieved transcendence in his singing. I had the opportunity of seeing one of his live performances. The audience, including me, experienced that transcendence; we cried, felt love and had goosebumps together throughout the performance. Speechless, awed and happy I left that concert feeling the high self and spirit of that incredible beingness of Andrea Bocelli.  Truly inspiring.

When we are in touch with our inner stillness, silence, the simplicity of our God Self has a chance to guide us and bring the smallest and greatest aspects of our lives into transcendence. My mom’s famous Lemon Meringue pie was definitely transcendent. Never to be duplicated. As a child I would join her sitting on the couch and ask her, “What are you doing?” She would respond, “I’m just Being.” “Oh, Being.” I always remembered that feeling that it was OK to just Be. Now I realize that her beingness and stillness went right into her transcendent Lemon Meringue pie and all of her cooking.

We all have very unique, transcendent, Divine qualities to share that can be encouraged to make themselves known by practicing mindfulness, meditation, stillness, simplicity and just Being. My wish is that you will know how incredibly wonderful you are and that you will share your own transcendent qualities even if just for yourself.

Don’t worry. Be happy.

Every Day is Earth Day

You and I, along with the animal kingdoms, ocean realm, sky worlds, fairy realms and elementals, are all Bridges of Love Light to heaven. Our Eden, Mother Earth, and all of her inhabitants are very alive and sentient beings and are here to be enjoyed, loved and nurtured 

Now. 

You and I, we, are beloved Bridges of Love and Light from Earth to heaven and back again in a constant movement of sharing our spiritual selves and Earth selves.

Each of us said we would help one of these beings or realms before we were born. I remembered this pre-birth agreement I had, saying I would help the oceans, cetaceans, trees, horses and dogs. You may have remembered your agreement also. If not consciously yet, you may begin having dreams of spirit animals or plants you are especially drawn to. It is fun, simple and satisfying to help our Earth Mother and our Father Sky.

Recognizing our Oneness with Heaven, Mother Earth and Father Sky, opens up infinite possibilities for creating the world we love to live in and share with others.

Trees, the standing people, love to interact with us. My grandson, Cooper, taught me how to hug a tree. He said, “You walk up to a tree and put your flat palm against it.”  A great way to start your conversation with a tree!

I love to stand in the middle of fairy ring trees. Trees that grow close together in a circle, leaving just enough room for you to stand in the middle. I love doing this and just being with the spirit of the trees. I sometimes put my back against the tree and feel its life force enlivening and strengthening me. Refreshing and inspiring.

Creating your own ceremonies and rituals with Mother Earth will bring you many benefits. One is what Glenda Green’s book, Love without End: Jesus Speaks, teaches us—innocent perception. We become as children and see Nature innocently. Instead of looking at a tree as we see a TV screen, we innocently perceive it. We feel its essence and discover its true nature and ours. This wonder and oneness transports us to our own innocence and love. We might wonder, how can I make this tree more comfortable? What does it need? I’ve found that when I take the time to perceive in this way, I feel more peace and well-being within myself.

Two websites I want to highlight again today are Mother Nature Network and Perelandra.

Each one has a wealth of nature research ongoing with infinite variety and ideas on how to understand our Earth Mother and All of her inhabitants, spiritually and physically.

Perelandra is a site that I have visited many times, and I always feel that I have barely scratched the surface. Machaelle Wright’s book Perelandra Soil-less Garden Companion is an exploration in how to see that everything in our lives– our work, home projects, and art– really are gardens. She works in very deep ways with the sprit of nature, and her work is not only revolutionary but very practical, with numerous healing tools and flower essences for sale. The site always sparks new ideas for me and is very healing by its nature of giving and sharing love.

Love, Gratitude, Forgiveness

Lola Wilkins by Nina Wilkins

These three qualities are all you need to create your own heaven on Earth. Easter and Earth Day are only one day apart this year.

Living in Carmel by the Sea, California, which is termed “Dog Town USA,” you will often see the bumper sticker “Dog is my Co-Pilot.” It’s easy for your thought to turn to “God is my co-pilot,” and then progress to “God is my Pilot.” Dogs are pure love for sure. I have had the joy and healing from my dogs over the years and they have been a constant and sure sign of how much we are loved by dogs and God.

When we contemplate and meditate on Love, not just as a thought, or word or feeling we can be transported through an open window or door in our consciousness to true power and creativity. We can remember how we create heaven on Earth.

Gratitude is Divine Prosperity. Appreciation never fails to lift you higher and higher towards heaven the more you practice it. Many years ago, I realized one of my main missions in life was to teach Spiritual Prosperity. I discovered that Gratitude, the quality and force of feeling and sincerely being grateful, changed everything to Love, the strongest force in the Universe. I have learned that Gratitude and Love are actually the same vibration and cannot help but attract our good. The photo below, a wild turkey, came to my window when I was meditating on thanking for all of my blessings. I laughed as it is the animal kingdom totem for Gratitude—Thanks Giving.

I love synchronicity. Seeing that sweet bird coming into my prayer made me laugh and lighten up about the tasks at hand.

Forgiveness ties everything together into present-time Love. I love it when friends or acquaintances say “Namaste” to me. The God in me salutes the God in you. Grievances can be released and we remember our Oneness. Now is the time to practice forgiveness in an even deeper way as we move to our experience of Earthly Heaven.

The Hawaiian practice of Ho’oponopono is one of deep forgiveness. Dr. Hew Len healed an entire ward of criminally insane patients in Hawaii using this process on himself. He saw their files and healed within himself that quality that caused their illness, and then they were healed. He never saw them in person as they were violent. He just saw their files. When we heal ourselves of hatred, anger, rage or any other lower frequencies, everyone around us benefits. The complete story of these miraculous healings is told by Dr. Joe Vitale in his book Zero Limits: The Secret Hawaiian System for Wealth, Health, Peace, and More.

When our own less-than-love qualities are triggered by people or events in our lives, we can practice Ho’oponopono. Mentally say, “I love you, I’m sorry, please forgive me. Thank you.” We can say it to our inner child, ourselves, the Earth or the person causing the upset that brings up that quality within us.

Dr. Hew Len and Dr. Joe Vitale both have many free videos on YouTube teaching these processes and correlating them with health and wealth. Here’s one from Dr. Len:

Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature and You

Earth Day is coming up and is the day after Easter this year. A lot to celebrate of the goodness of spring and renewal. I would like to invite you to create an Earth Celebration either for yourself, or family and friends, or to join one of the many group Mother Gaia parties. Gaia is a living Being who also goes by these names: Patcha Mama, Sophia and Virgo. I find when I am loving Mother Nature and calling her by name I’m inspired to give back to her for all she has given me.

These are a few things you might want to include in your party- ceremonies for the sheer joy and fun of it: 

  • Music and dancing. The fairies, leprechauns, gnomes, sprites, undines, Pan, sylphs and Earth Devas love beautiful flute music and string instruments.
  • Honoring of the four directions; North for clarity and direction on your path, South for innocence fun and your inner child, East for your continued Spiritual Growth and Divine Awakening and West for inspiration and gratitude for all that is and all that you have.
  • Also include all of the elementals, Earth, Fire, Air and Water. Make up appreciation rituals that can be as simple as making a beautiful meal or putting your bare feet in the earth. As you are aware of these elementals and are appreciating them you may start to see brighter colors in your garden or maybe catch a glimpse of flickering lights around your flowers. Another benefit is the profound feeling of connection with all that is. We are part of the Earth and part of heaven. We are heaven on Earth in form as are all of God’s Creatures and Creations.

One day as I was making a High Tea Party for my family and friends I had the very strong thought from my garden fairies that they were the ones who had inspired tea parties in England and Ireland. Having the beauty of porcelain tea cups, sitting in a flower garden with a sparkling Rose table cloth and napkins set the preamble for enjoying tiny cakes, clotted cream, scones, berry  jam, lemon curd, rainbow crystal sugar and, of course, the dainty watercress sandwiches. Beautiful teapots filled with steaming liquid amber made the celebration complete. I’ve always thought of these as Prosperity Teas. Taking the time to be together and relax in a garden is a very potent and luxurious Earth ceremony. Before I realized the fairies had inspired these gatherings I always became so happy and inspired to create when my sister, Charmaine, or my friend, Janette, gave one to me. Now I love taking the time for a tea party even more.

So, I hope you will join in with all of the Earth elementals and people to celebrate Earth Day April 22, 2019. You will soon realize every day is Grandmother Earth, Mother Earth, Gaia, Sophia, Virgo Day. You will definitely be inspired by this process to co-create your own heaven on Earth.

In the video below you will meet Carol Weakland and the Leprechauns. I discovered her recently, and I love her work.

The Amazing Healing Properties of Flowers

As in the title of this blog, many years ago Sananda told me the earth would be healed by Grandmothers, Flowers and Children, including your child within, who is innocent. Working with him over the years I learned the importance of innocence, our true Divine Nature, the inclusiveness of his teachings and the power of flowers. It’s very easy to understand the healing power of Grandmothers with their wisdom and love for their grandchildren. Today we will speak of the healing power of Flowers.

As shared in a previous article here, Dr. Edward Bach, M.D., was a pioneer in discovering flowers’ essences could help his patients. He stated, “quite simply, flowers heal.” Today, his five-flower remedy, Rescue Remedy, is widely available and used all over the world.

You can easily learn how to make your own flower essences. They are fun to make and easy to use. The video linked here teaches you the basics.

Sananda also taught me that Flowers are some of the strongest beings on earth. Such a paradox seeing how fragile and beautiful they are with almost intoxicating fragrances. He has also taught me that Nova Earth is filled with paradoxes as we move into understanding wholeness and inclusiveness; a shift from duality. He often tells me, “Look toward what you want to create; focus there.”

I would like to help create heaven on Earth, and in my world that means a return to Eden: GARDENS.

Flowers and herbs are the most helpful remedies I have found in the physical world, as they are bridges to heaven or the spiritual world. In an herbal class I took, the instructor had been taught by a shaman who had learned the essences of the herbs with his eyes covered with a cloth. He felt they were holy and that he needed to feel and be spiritually guided as to their purpose.

Flowers can uplift your spirits and just make you feel good, which is a big leap towards wellness. A bouquet by your bedside, or aromatherapy with an essential oil or a flower essence are all helpful to your whole self. Other comforting ways to “feel good,” which we have learned from Abraham and the Hicks’ teachings as being the most important way for us to attract our good, might be walking through a garden.

There are so many ways to enjoy Flowers. They can be dried, preserved with sugar and egg whites and eaten or used to brighten your salad or garnish your favorite dish. I highly recommend watching Chef’s Table “Jeong Kwan,” from season three. Netflix says of the episode: “In South Korea, Buddhist nun, Jeong Kwan, approaches cooking as a spiritual practice. Her meals, including her Lotus Flower tea, have left some of the world’s best chefs in awe.” Watching her make the Lotus Flower tea is a treat and such a great example of enjoying all the sublime attributes of flowers.

When you make your flower essence, make sure you have identified the flower correctly. Some of the most beautiful flowers are poisonous. Also make sure they are organic. Don’t collect or forage from roadsides. I learned this the hard way when I had my sister and her husband for dinner. I was excited to make them one of my favorite rice dishes that contained a large amount of dill weed. I saw large bunches along the roadside and was so excited to collect them. When it was time to serve the rice it had a dark green color and smelled of licorice. It turned out I had collected anise, which looks very much like dill! So, off we went to Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour for dinner.

Contemplation, Mindful Movement and Meditation

Contemplation, Mindful movement, and Meditation

Last week we discovered how simple it is to create Love, Peace and Harmony in our lives. These qualities help us have more health, happiness and contentment.

I want to share my favorite forms of these practices that have been my personal bridges of love-light. I love joy, fun and happiness. These activities of light have helped me truly and immeasurably to be happy, be joy and be myself.

Often friends tell me of the upset and anxiety in their lives and I ask, “Do you meditate?” As often the response is, “No, I don’t have time.” My favorite response I borrowed from a zen proverb: “You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day, unless you’re too busy; then you should sit for an hour.”

I’ve experienced over and over that mediating gives me more time in my day. Synchronicity, serendipity, harmony and peace of mind create the space for great ideas and solutions to problems. Who to call, when to go and where; your own Divine intuition enhanced and louder.

My favorite forms are Mindful Walking, sitting on a bench in a garden, Tai chi, taking an almost-nap in the sun, sitting on the sand at the ocean’s edge, walking on the beach or, as the Japanese say, “forest bathing.” Choose a form that works for you. You don’t have to be formally meditating as a Zen Monk to receive the many benefits of stilling your mind and being in your heart– as Eckhart Tolle teaches us in Stillness Speaks.

What I learned from his holiness, The Dalai Lama, is that what he gets from meditation is “nothing.” What he doesn’t get is what is important: he doesn’t get get anger, anxiety and a lack of peace of mind.

He teaches us: “The source of a happy life is within us… Peace of mind is within us; it requires that we develop a warm heart and use our intelligence. People often don’t realize that warmheartedness, compassion, and love are actually factors for our survival.” (From The Dalai Lama on Why Leaders Should Be Mindful, Selfless, and Compassionate, by The he Dalai Lama with Rasmus Hougaard, published in the Harvard Business Review February 20, 2019.)

The photo above demonstrates stillness in movement. The creek is flowing and still and clear at the same time. For me, the clear mirror image in the photo’s picture of stillness is how we reflect our Creator in the stillness. We hear our “still small voice.”
