The Power of NOW, a Bridge of Love-Light

I discovered one day that the letters in the word “Now” when reversed equal “WON.” I feel that is so true. When we are in the Now, we are in Real life. We are present. We win, in the highest sense, for our own peace, health, creativity and well-being are included in presence. Most importantly we allow Divine Presence to come through us. Oprah has said that Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now, is one of five books that she always keeps by her bed. His teachings are simple and very necessary for our shift into the higher consciousness of our New Earth.

Years ago I came upon a video of an “Ode to Joy” flash mob in Spain. It made me so happy that I viewed it several times. That flash mob video is included in Eckhart’s teaching video above, so you will receive double the fun and enlightenment. The expressions of the surprised and awed onlookers remind me of the innocence and joy of humanity as a whole.

Joy is our essential nature. We have been created out of Love, and we are still Love. As we contemplate that fact, we are returned to our innocence and the knowing that we are the Beloved of the Divine. We feel this very powerfully in Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.” My grandson, Cooper, has just learned to play this piece on his recorder, and it gives me the same uplift as when played by a full professional orchestra. The original composer was in the Divine presence when he wrote it, so that essence is still present. That quality of presence is immortal because it is Divine.

It is simple for us to experience presence because it is within us and is our true nature. Meditating for at least 20 minutes brings us to the state of allowing presence to well up in us.

Each morning I have one cup of coffee. I want to be present for enjoying each sip as I love coffee and I only drink one cup a day. Any more and my thinking becomes more dominant than my heart space. Each morning I notice when I become present while drinking, I’m so disappointed when either half of it is gone or sometimes the whole cup is gone before I’m aware. I’ve missed the pleasure, taste and aroma of my favorite beverage by not being present in the Now.

Practicing the Power of Now actually increases time. You become aligned with your highest good. As the presence wells up within you it de-stresses you. Divine ideas flow in. You are in “spaciousness,” as Eckhart teaches.

One discovery I made for myself in this practice is the Now, or moment, is not about linear (or clock) time; it is a Portal to our own Divinity. Babaji teaches us that the only affirmation we ever need is “I am as God created me: perfect, whole, and complete.” When we are in the Now, allowing presence, and we affirm this Truth it becomes more and more real for us. One of the real treasures of this practice.

If you haven’t already, I hope you enjoy Eckhart ‘s book The Power of Now and the video included above.

Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature and You.

Many years ago when I was choosing the name for my blog, I asked Sananda what would encompass the whole of what he was teaching me. I asked, “What exactly do I do when I’m helping people either with channeling, or prayer or energy work?” and he said, “You are a bridge of love-light.” This made me happy, and he told me that Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature, our innocence as Divine Children and flowers would heal the Earth.

Today I have included several photos that I took at the Carmelite Monastery in Carmel, CA. Each of the flowers have personal significance for me and uplift me when I see them. Bridges of love and light  are personal to ourselves. Each may be one of our infinite variety of choices to uplift us– music, laughing, meditating, praying, dancing, thanking, forgiving, being in the Now… all work wonderfully well. As a collective of humanity, we are reaching higher to awaken to our true higher selves, hence our need for bridges to our Eden; our own unique symbols that help us reach higher. My love of Nature, and her beauty and elements, never fails to lift me higher and make me feel better, best, then inspired, then joy.

May these flowers (and Frog) inspire you to create your very own Heaven on Earth. Since we are all connected, we will all share in our Nova Earth. It is here now.

Gem Water

I love water.

Last week’s blog, The Divine Mystery of Water, taught us that water is the manifestation of Love in the elemental realm. Also, Masaru Emoto’s research discovered that water has memory.

Water as a medium can create wonderful elixirs from the light and energy frequencies of crystals.

A few months ago I was ordering a crystal healing book, but I mistakenly ordered Gem Water: How to Prepare and Use More than 130 Crystal Waters for Therapeutic Treatments, by Michael Gienger and Joachim Goebel. What a perfect mistake. I love this book. It is well researched and very simple to use. It contains precise, succinct and invaluable descriptions of crystals with their mineralogy, healing properties, indications, preparation and category (weak or strong).

The information in this small book is as comprehensive as those given in much larger and more extensive books. I appreciate this so much as I love simplicity.

This book teaches how to make crystal-infused water by several different methods: placing crystals directly in water ( I don’t advise until you are confident in your knowledge), boiling, evaporation, test tube and transferring energy from crystals. All of these methods are good.

For today, I chose the transferring energy from crystals (my photo above). I’m an energy worker but a beginner in making gem waters. I know this method is effective.

I chose the basic mixture as it is one I have used in my channeling and energy work without the water. Amethyst, clear Quartz and Rose Quartz. This combination helps with clarity, love and well-being. I use the Amethyst for opening my crown chakra and Quartz for amplifying love and light. I love Rose Quartz for my love connection to Divine Mother, Self love and kindness.

If you have an interest in crystals, even if just for their beauty, I feel you would enjoy this process and book very much.

I very much enjoy the consciousness expansion I receive using crystals, and I’m always reminded of how much Mother Earth loves us.

The Divine Mystery of Water

In the elemental realm, Water is the manifestation of Love. You are the manifestation of Love. Divine Love is a mystery in all of her ways. You and I, and many of the manifested beings on our “Blue Marble,” Earth, are made up of a large percentage of Water. It fascinates me that our physical body content of Water nearly equals the percentage of Water that makes up our Dear Earth Mother. As we are the holy, sacred and beloved manifestation of the Divine, so is the Earth and Water.

Years ago I learned that the elements of Hydrogen and Oxygen were not supposed to go together in the scientific arrangement of H2O. That in itself is a mystery. For some reason that makes me happy. Add to that the other unusual properties of Water– that it can be a liquid, solid or gas– and you have the beginning of a study that can take you into infinite spiritual and scientific realms of inquiry. Add to these elements the life-giving and transformative, healing properties of Water, and you have sufficient motivation to help the Waters of the World.

Exploring the mystical properties of Water can bring you an increase in your intuition, wellness, inspiration and creative abilities. You probably have noticed that you get your best ideas in the shower. I get my best ideas swimming, or being near any body of natural Water. Holding a glass of Water, thanking it and drinking it works well also.

When we study the work of Masaru Emoto we can begin to understand the mystery of Water. He discovered that water has memory. Water responds to our thoughts and feelings of Love in remarkable and powerful healing ways, as demonstrated in his rice experiment and in a myriad of different ways in his book The Healing Power of Water.

A crucial and potent way that our understanding of the practices of using the Divine Mystery of Water is our consciousness raises and shifts. Homeopathic remedies, flower essences, spa treatments, bathing in hot springs or any natural body of Water, have the ability to lift our consciousness and raise our frequency. Something as simple as a hot bath can change our whole outlook, which in turn helps us attract our good. Understanding and using the memory of Water contains infinite ways we can help ourselves and the world’s Water.

Patricia Cota Robles offers sacred healing Water for free on her website, EraOfPeace.org. Waters from 100 sacred wells, rivers or springs from around the world have been collected. Written instructions for the ritual and invocation are included with the package containing the vial of Water. I am always amazed and refreshed just reading about the locations of all of the sites around the globe from which the Waters have been collected. It’s easy and free to order this Water. Enjoy.

I enjoy creating Water ceremonies and rituals for myself and the Oceans. One that always makes me smile and feel my connection with the wholeness of the Waters of the Earth is simple. To a container of the purest Water you have (natural spring Water is best), add your feeling of Love. Hold the container next to your heart and fill it with gratitude for its life-giving and healing properties. Next, if you are near a creek, river, lake or ocean, pour out the Water you have blessed. If you are unable to give your holy Water to a natural body of Water, pour it on your plants. It will find its way to the ocean by its inherent property of being a part of the wholeness of the complete Water cycle. Masaru Emoto teaches us that the Hado, or Spirit of Water, is what prompted him to do his research studies, and that it took him around the World teaching about Water’s Divine Mystery. I Invite you to see what the Hado of Water can do for you. You might be very surprised. Don’t we always love a good mystery?

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.
