A Higher Perspective

Photo by Nina Wilkins

As I have often repeated, my Sacramento City College Political Science professor’s exclamation as he almost ran into our classroom: “So what? Who cares? And why does it matter?” A wakeup call for sure. We are all integral parts of an incredible Earth Rising and awakening. Humanity is on the brink of an entirely new way of being in the world. Love, Unity, Peace, Cooperation, Oneness, Creativity, Joy, Fun, Caring for all of Earth’s inhabitants are what matters most NOW.

We all matter. Our thoughts, our words, our feelings, our actions are all contributing to the New Earth Reality.

The photos above and below demonstrate a very potent and simple way we can contribute our higher selves’ beingness to all that is: relaxing, napping and being ourselves. Very simple and enjoyable. The top photo is of our friend’s cat, Gobbles, and the bottom is of Gobbles and Hana’s dog, Lola. Dogs are good at napping also.

I just discovered a wise, beautiful and inspiring Oracle Card deck, Archangel Animal Oracle Cards: A 44-Card Deck and Guidebook, by Diana Cooper. In it she writes about 44 different animals. She gives their soul missions, higher self qualities and gifts to the Earth and Humanity. I love her Higher Perspective.

For cat, she gives the qualities of relaxed and independent Archangel Raphael: “All felines originate from Orion, the constellation of enlightenment and wisdom, and are highly evolved fifth-dimensional psychic beings. Domestic cats watch over and protect the homes where they live, while big cats are watchers and protectors of the planet. They are all healers. Cats know how to relax at a deep core level so that they can access pure spiritual guidance and spread this information to humans and animals.”

I have found this to be true in my life and have always loved the cats that have come to live with me. I feel it is of the utmost importance for all of us now to relax, pause, be still and hear our spiritual guidance. We all have Archangels and personal guides, whether ancestors, animals, fairies, trees, flowers, insects, birds, crystals or ascended Masters AND our own High Selves connected to the Divine. We all have Higher guidance; it’s just up to us to be quiet and listen. And, of course, to follow the guidance to the best of our ability, today.

Steve Jobs is quoted as saying, “You can only connect the dots backwards.” I have found this to be so true. We often don’t find out why some information and guidance is given to us until much later. Our task is first to determine that it is higher guidance through our intuition, feelings and instincts, then trust. An invaluable resource is Opening to Channel: How to Connect with Your Guide, by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer. Following guidance is a skill that can be learned. This honed skill will help you save time in your pursuits, help you grow spiritually, help you heal and develop compassion for yourself and others.

So, rest, relaxation, meditation, contemplation, stillness and napping are the order of the day. Know yourself, honor yourself, accept yourself and love yourself in the stillness. That calm will translate to peace to those around you and will be a wonderful contribution to the collective; AND all you had to do was take a nap.

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.

Stillness

I have been a professional channel for 30 years.  I channel Sananda, Kudos, 7 Spirit Dolphins and Lela, my High Self.  Over the years I have received very specific guidance for my spiritual growth, healing and everyday life problem solving.  I became accustomed to receiving this wonderful helpful guidance, when all of a sudden it stopped.

I had been channeling for about 12 years and happily receiving helpful suggestions for any number of topics when it just stopped, though I knew my guides were present.  I would get into my usual quiet space and get ready to channel and ask my question, and I would hear, “Be still and Know that I Am God.”

Each day I would pray and get into my “channeling space” and ask again, and I would hear, “Be still and Know that I Am God.”

This was a very challenging time of my life as my daughter and I were caretakers of a 2,000 acre ranch.  She was only 10 years old, and we were pretty much on our own discovering how to live in the country and take care of horses, chickens, dogs, cats, a hamster and a bunny, while assisting the owners in developing the ranch. I was feeling this is not the time for my channeling to stop.

In a very real sense it hadn’t stopped, it had changed.  I found I had many synchronicities each day and was moved to be right where I needed to be each day.  I was feeling happy and peaceful as my daughter had always wanted a horse and one of my dreams of getting to know wild animals “personally” was coming true. Several times the same owl would greet us as we drove up the two-mile dirt driveway. It would fly right alongside us.  We grew to know and be familiar with badgers, hawks, wild boar, a fox, a weasel, skunks, bobcats and, of course, our farm animals.

Still, each day, I would meditate and pray, though no direct information came except, “Be still and Know that I Am God.”  This did give me peace and the thought,  “OK,  I will do my best at that.”

This same process continued for two years, until one day I shouted, “What does this mean??” When I “heard” in the silence the sweetest voice saying, “I just want you to know me in the silence.”

The presence was so tender and loving that I felt very foolish at not recognizing that during this time period I was getting guidance from the still silence.  My own intuition was stronger, and I was growing spiritually.

After this day, my channeling resumed and I began to receive very specific guidance again, but it became more a part of my whole self– the feeling of always being connected and cherished by the Divine presence within me. “Be still and Know that I Am God” has become a practice and preamble to my channeling.  So, I highly recommend the stillness that can be found within you while walking, doing the dishes, gardening or doing just about anything. Peace, joy and love will shine through you as that is who you are.

What is a bridge of love-light?

What is a bridge of love-light?

In the 1970s I attended Sacramento City College. My political science professor always walked very fast and determinedly into the classroom while almost shouting at the same time “so what, who cares, and what does it matter”? He got our attention and the phrase has stuck with me all of these years when I am teaching or writing to ask that question of myself before I begin. What is a bridge of love-light, who cares and what does it matter?

A bridge of love-light has infinite possibilities and is defined more by its result than concrete form. In fact it is often but not always found in the inner and invisible realms of thought, feelings, words, beliefs, concepts, consciousness, Spirit, and the Divine. Wow, that covers a lot of ground. Intentions and affirmations can sometimes also qualify. Laughter is a universal bridge as is smiling and beauty, art and kindness, and of course selfless generosity. When you feel lighter, more compassionate and more joyful you have likely experienced a bridge of love-light. They are most often very individualized as we are all so unique. The beauty of an orchid or a song, or view of a child playing may send chills up your spine but be “lost” on another. So you can see, the what and “so what”? Is infinite.

Who cares?

Well, being a light worker I care and hope you will too when you see how important these often simple bridges are to create. Catching a negative thought and changing it to a positive one, or simply noticing it and letting it go is a very powerful light bridge that affects you and those around you in a very beneficial way. We learn in “A Course in Miracles”(Foundation for Inner Peace) that realizing we can see peace instead of a negative thought or situation does create miracles. As Robert Frost has taught us taking the Road less travelled does make all the difference.

Caring by its nature is a bridge and is Love.

What does it matter?

IMG_0345-2Since you are reading this, you of all people know it couldn’t matter more as you are a light worker and a bridge of love-light simply by your being upon the Earth at this time. Sananda teaches us as the children of the Divine that, Beingness is supreme. When we are being the love that we are, we can’t help but create bridges of love-light in our own worlds that in turn light the whole world and All.

What matters most now is that you enjoy the fruits of your labors of creating the bridges of love-light that have helped humanity awaken to their Divinity. To realize you and your, friends, family and humanity are not separate from Divine Love is the very best effect of creating bridges of love-light that anyone could hope for and achieve.

Some of my own favorite light bridges: smiling at strangers from my heart center, flowers, singing, swimming, teaching, meditation, eating organic raspberries, giving fairy tea parties, making and sharing bread and cakes, watching sunrises and sunsets, being with my family, trees, nature, favorite books, the Ellen Degeneres T.V. Show, Arbonne products, dogs, horses, cats, the Ocean and, Love, love love practicing gratitude and sharing my joy. Plus more.

You can see the list is infinite. My bridges of love-light for you are that you enjoy life, have fun, feel free, and receive all of the love, joy, health and wealth that are here for you.

Welcome!

My intent of this blog is to share my adventures in applied metaphysics and channeling.  My hope is that you dear reader will be able to use this wisdom to better your life.  My wish is that you will find the peace, joy and wellness not to mention fun and smiles or laughs that are your core being and birthright.  Simplicity is the order of the day:  Love wins all. 

I’ve studied metaphysics since I was a child and have had many demonstrtations of God’s love in just about every life category. 

Because I’ve had so many miracles and experiences of Divine presence I’ve always wanted to write a book to share these simple processes with others. 

My experience is unique as yours will be as you take the time to try out these principles.  That is one of the major themes and threads you will find in this Blog; affirming and confirming your uniqueness and goodness and “perfectness” as God’s child.

This Blog is not about a new theology or religion.  It is simply a sharing of spiritual, Universal principles that have worked for me over a lifetime.  We are in the midst of a grand and almost inconveivable Spiritual awakening on a universal scale; joy, love, prosperity, health, and the fun of expressing your unique self are the order of the day.

I’ll be writing about a variety of spiritual, metaphysical and New Age concepts.  Some subjects I’ve just touched upon and others I’ve Practiced for a lifetime.  Take what works for you and let the rest go.  I’m hoping to nudge you to discover your spiritual gifts and talents and encourage you to practice them. 

I feel that one reason God created us as unique beings is that that part of us which no one else knows would want acknowlegement encouraging  us to seek that confirmation until eventually it would call us home to our creator.

You are created out of love.
