“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” – The Bible (John 1:1, NIV)

That quote from The Bible has inspired many, including me, to wonder “what is the Word that is God”? That question has been like a kōan for me, like “ What is the sound of one hand clapping?” Searching for that “Word” has led me to many spiritual teachings and the Unified Field.

We looked at the main attributes of the Divine last week and the 25 qualities of the Unified Field, and we can draw the conclusion that these are the Words that are God. Though still there is the Divine Mystery of what is “THE Word?”

Esther and Jerry Hicks have discovered in their work with the Teachings of Abraham, that our Source, God, is Vibration, and when we are aligned with this Vibration of our Creator we feel Good. When we feel Good, we attract our Good. Could it be this simple? I believe it is.

So we may draw the conclusion that the “ Word” is Vibration. Movement and Frequencies are Vibrations. Magnetic resonance is a Vibration. The permutations of Frequencies, Magnetism and Vibrations are infinite as our Source, God, is infinite. This is why a favorite melody or song can lift us to a higher state of being. Many spiritual traditions have studied and learned about specific sound Vibrations that heal through the human energy fields: Tibetan Bells, crystal bowls, tuning forks, pianos, guitars and flutes, to name a few. Vibration.

How do these concepts relate to Us and our Lives? Appreciation, Gratitude and Thankfulness are Vibrations that align us with our Divine Source. These qualities are the same Frequency or Vibration as Love. Since Love is the most potent Vibration of Life, we can feel aligned with God through the practice of Appreciation.

I love the Hicks’ expression of having a “rampage of Appreciation.” Often the word “rampage” might be used in a more negative connotation. In my own life, rampages of Appreciation have lifted me out of some very difficult circumstances. One Word of Love and Appreciation can turn us to the direction of our Good.

As you work with your own Spiritual Prosperity, find songs, music, symbols, movements, foods, activities, Art, books or movies that never fail to uplift you with your own unique preferences. Included here is one song that always uplifts me and makes me appreciate my life, The Divine and nature: Morning Has Broken, by Cat Stevens. My favorite lyrics are, “Praise for them springing fresh from the Word,” and “…Eden saw play.” Yes, it is time for us to play.

Appreciate, Love, Sing, Dance or Play. You will be aligned with your Creator and attract your Good.

Flowers never fail to uplift me. Today the photos are of cultivated and wild flowers in Idaho and Wyoming. Petunias are very popular in this part of the world. Their fragrance is so sweet and vivid colors are stunning. The wild ones here are growing at 9,600 feet by God’s Grace. So lovely.

Spiritual Prosperity, the Unified Field and You (Part Two)

Spiritual Prosperity and the Unified Field

Last week we touched on the amazing subjects of The Unified Field and the seven main attributes of the Divine. Emmet Fox and Deepak Chopra are not the only teachers who have discovered these ideas. I wanted to add clarifications to last week’s blog, and also add to it.

Many religions have discovered the seven main attributes of the Divine and, of course, God is infinite, limitless and unbounded. Unity, Church of Religious Science, Christ Truth League, The Essenes Teachings and Christian Science all teach about these seven attributes, and of course many other religions also.

One aspect of Father-Mother God that I love is Mystery. When people have Divine revelations and feel God’s vast Love they often report that there are no words for the experience. How they received the experience is a Mystery, and often the teaching and learning from that one experience will last a lifetime.

The photo above is a simple expression of one of my own Divine Mystery discoveries. Decades ago I learned that one of my missions on Earth was to heal the scarcity belief. That mission has taken me far and wide with the Spiritual Teachings of Sananda and many other spiritual teachers. One of my favorite quotes from the Sermon on the Mount is, “Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” (KJV, Luke 12:27)

In working on my scarcity belief it seemed much easier to manifest directly what I needed instead of producing cash. I often carried this quote in my pocket and as much as I was able went to God in prayer for my needs, working on being a “lily of the fields.”

It turns out that Glads grew wild in the Middle East and are thought to be the lilies of the field that Jesus referred to in the Sermon on the Mount. I found this out recently when one of my friends gave me this bouquet, pictured above. She asked me the meaning of Gladiolas. I didn’t know, and the very next day I was led to a beautiful book at a resale shop titled, The Meaning of Flowers: Myth, Language & Lore by Gretchen Scoble and Ann Field. I laughed when I found the quote in it about Gladiolas being the lilies of the field. I had always had a much happier feeling when I saw glads than I had when I saw lilies. My own Divine Mystery revealed. In the meaning of flowers they stand for natural Grace. The Divine has special gifts that are unique to each of us. The Divine Mystery of receiving those gifts brings me so much joy.

Also note that one of Emmet Fox’s most popular books is The Sermon on the Mount: The Key to Success in Life. To clarify Deepak Chopra’s book quoted last week, Creating Affluence: Wealth Consciousness in the Field of All Possibilities, the 25 qualities of the Unified Field came about when his teacher Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation, asked physicists to describe this quantum field. It turns out these 25 qualities are also the qualities of Brahman, the Source, as described in the Vedas.

I invite you to hold your attention on any of the 25 qualities or the main attributes of Life, Truth, Love, Principle, Mind, Soul, Spirit. Last week I correlated them according to my own experience, though you may have your own unique way. The benefit is the power of attention.

Holding thought on these qualities reminds us we are not separate from our Source, The Divine.

It is God’s Pleasure to give us the Kingdom. Yay!

Another wonderful book that explores quantum mechanics and spiritual truths is Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics, by Gary Zukav. One of my favorites.

Spiritual Prosperity, the Unified Field and You

These subjects can be studied for lifetimes because the spiritual wisdom they contain is infinite and immortal. Understanding and practicing these principles in your own life will create the wealth, Peace, happiness and good feelings you desire. Today I am presenting correlations from two very potent and concentrated teachings from Emmet Fox,  Around the Year with Emmet Fox: A Book of Daily Readings and Deepak Chopra, M.D., Creating Affluence: Wealth Consciousness in the Field of All Possibilities.

In previous blogs we have discovered that everything is created out of our Divine Qualities of Life, Truth and Love, because these qualities are part of the Unified Field that holds the spiritual substance of qualities that create worlds. The Divine Qualities of Principle, Mind, Soul and Spirit are always present as the spiritual force and intelligence so we may create with Life, Truth and Love. These teachings, when applied to our own life circumstances, right where we stand upon the Earth, never fail to manifest beautiful results.

“No matter what problem you may have to face today, there is a solution, because you have nothing to deal with but your own thoughts.” – Emmet Fox

“Affluence, unboundedness, and abundance are our natural state. We just need to restore the memory of what we already know.” – Deepak Chopra

The combination of Divine Qualities are our compounds to create with, which is very much like the infinite variety of color produced by mixing paint or noticing the infinite variety of life manifested in Mother Nature. Wisdom is the perfect balance of Intelligence and Love. Beauty is the perfect balance of Life, Truth and Love, that gives us the feeling of our Divine Nature. The connection with all that is, that Emmet teaches us, “Thou canst not pluck a flower without the trembling of a star.”

Today I am going to correlate the qualities of the Unified Field with the seven main attributes of the Divine. I have found this helpful, though you may synthesize these in a different way. I hope you will enjoy creating in your own way, which will give you that feeling of channeling your Divine Self and being a beloved part of all that is.

In the Unified Field of Creating Affluence, and in the Divine Qualities, mentioned in Emmet Fox’s work:

Principle correlates with: Total potential of natural law. Infinite organizing power. Fully awake within itself. Infinite correlation. Perfect orderliness.

Mind correlates with: Infinite dynamism. Infinite creativity. Pure knowledge.

Soul correlates with: Unboundedness. Perfect balance. Self-sufficiency.

Spirit correlates with: Infinite Silence. Harmonizing. All possibilities.

Life correlates with: Evolutionary. Self-referral.

Truth correlates with: Invincibility. Immortality. Unmanifest.

Love correlates with: Nourishing. Integrating. Simplicity. Purifying. Freedom. Bliss. Love is the most powerful and greatest quality of all.

Since you are a Divine Child you can claim these qualities as being part of you and part of your connection with all that is. Deepak teaches us that we just need to have our attention on one of the qualities to bring it into our life. We don’t have to study it, just have our attention on it.

Sananda teaches me every day to face and put my attention on what I want to create, not what I don’t want.

There you have it: your golden keys to create your world that you want to step into.

I chose the photos for today as they demonstrate Divine Mother Love, Beauty and the infinite variety of Mother Nature.

Bees, Water and Divine Abundance

Continuing on the Subject of Spiritual Prosperity, everything is created out of Life, Truth and Love.

Bees teach us about Life in the higher realms. They are fifth dimensional creatures. They defy the rules of Newtonian physics by their design. Their bodies are too big for their wings, so they shouldn’t be able to fly. So many things about Bees are mysterious and Life-giving.

Raw, local, organic honey is one of my favorite foods, along with bee pollen and propolis. A paradox of bee pollen is that it is very helpful to those with pollen allergies. The pollen is also a complete food, including all of the B vitamins, many minerals and protein. Propolis, which keeps the hive healthy, is a natural antibiotic. Manuka honey, which is available at many health food stores, is a natural antiseptic. A very life-giving thing for us to do is to start as close to home as possible and find natural bee keepers and purchase their products. Farmers’ markets are a good place to start.

Healthy bee communities mean healthy humans. Bees teach us cooperation, service, unity and the joy of living. Their buzzing sound is a potent healing vibration. In the short video above, if you are still, you can receive the bee vibration and get energized. You can also witness this energy in watching them go from flower to flower. Their love of flowers comes to us via their honey. Delicious.

Planting flowers that attract bees is a powerful way to help our food chain as they are critical pollinators. You might even be interested in having your own hive. Many communities have support groups for sharing information on creating and maintaining healthy hives; Mountain Feed and Farm in the Santa Cruz, California, area is one that I am aware of.

The Truth of the Divine Abundance that Bees teach us is sharing and helping the whole community. Mary Kay Ash had a golden bee as her symbol for her highly prosperous company, for the fact that they defied gravity and helped each other. When you hold your awareness on Bees and their consciousness of Good you can receive that Goodness directly from them.

Add Water. I write often about Water because water is Love in the elemental realm. Water is us. It coincides with our emotional body and the health of our physical body. Water is Divine Abundance. Water teaches us we are fluid. When we flow merrily down stream, we attract what we need. When we experience the mists of our Divine Selves, the mystery of Water contained in our veins, we can be elevated to our High Selves and receive inspired ideas for guidance, creativity and problem-solving. Don’t you get your best ideas in the shower?

Helping the Bees and Waters in your community will go very far in helping our Earth’s environment and our own health and well-being. We are One, connected to every one and everything.

My very favorite happy lunch is a fresh baguette with Kerigold Irish butter with lots of raw honey and a hot cup of organic Assam amber tea made with fresh pure, cold water. Try it.

Mastering the Art of Creating, Allowing and Receiving Your Good

Nina Wilkins art of allowing

Sananda has taught me that everything is created out of the Divine Qualities of Life, Truth and Love. When you are creating even the simplest thing, such as a cup of tea, or making an entire feast, ask yourself, “Does this contain Life for me?” “Is it True for me?” “Will it feel like Love?” When we ask ourselves these questions for our large or small projects, they will take on the frequencies of our High Self. Our Divine Presence will be imbued in the smallest or greatest of our co-creations with the Divine.

I love gardens so much. The first time I experienced a “secret garden” in Corona Del Mar, California, I was 14 years old. It was a magical place with a spectacular garden and tea room. The gift store had very special Scandinavian tea pots and housewares. Every single thing in the tea service was special. Melt-in-your-mouth pastries, tea that I had never tasted before, real cream and sparkling colored sugar. It was an experience that was very close to a tea ceremony or ritual. Magical.

Since that time, gardens have always healed, inspired and brought me peace. Tea parties continue to bring me joy and love. These simple activities contain Life, Truth and Love when created with Presence.

As we create, now, with the beautiful frequencies of our Earth Rising, we can make the simplest things sacraments and gifts to ourselves and every one around us. Everything takes on the radiance of the Divine when we take the time to notice and Be in our High Selves.

The photos for today’s blog still make me happy when I see them because that was a particularly joyful day for me. I was just out walking in Carmel, California, for the fun of it. The flowers contain the memories of that day and the radiance. If you close your eyes you can feel the celebration and joy of the fairies on the flowers telling them “grow, grow.”

I invite you to search for and discover your own secret garden just for the fun of it. Or, even better, co-create one with your own Divine qualities of Life, Truth and Love. You may be surprised by the fairies, tree spirits and gnomes dancing around you, inspiring you to write poems, or paint or… discover your own infinite creativity.

Mastering the Art of Creating, Allowing and Receiving Your Highest Good

spiritual prosperity

“The
Good that is for you is your God. Do you not move toward your Good?”

-Emma Curtis Hopkins, Scientific Christian Mental Practice

“As you think thoughts that feel good to you, you will be in harmony with who you really are.”
– Abraham, via Esther and Jerry Hicks

Every thing is created out of the divine qualities of Life, Truth and Love.
– Sananda

We are made in the image and likeness of our Creator, hence we are creators.

We can use these principals to create. Self Love is the key to create, allow and receive our good.

We are in a time on our dear Mother Earth that is ripe with a need for our creativity and the power of our collective consciousness to manifest new levels of health, wealth and needed solutions to a myriad of planetary problems. You have the answers, and so do I. The key, as the Hicks have taught us, is releasing resistance and allowing our good. Allowing and receiving our good is Self Love. Our Self Love will radiate love to others.

When I’m in resistance, I struggle to even remember the definition of resistance. Abraham teaches us that resistance is being in a vibration that doesn’t match our Creator’s vibration. Thinking thoughts that stem from fear is resistance. Believing in separation from our Creator and our good is resistance.

I taught a year -long Spiritual Prosperity class with 15 participants on creating and manifesting miracles and our good. We met in my home for a few hours every two weeks. Part of the class was channeled by me from Sananda and my high self, part was a group meditation and channeling from all in our circle, and part was sharing our miracle manifestations and anecdotes of using and demonstrating the prosperity principles we had learned.

One of the very important principles I learned, and keep learning, is noticing and releasing resistance to my good. In the class, each week I would assign homework that was designed to enhance the practical and useful aspects of the Spiritual principles we were studying. What stood out to me was that usually only half or less of our group did the homework or any practice between our meeting times. We had all agreed that we wanted to increase our good, so I kept asking the Divine why this was so.

I realized that the resistance to completing the homework assignments was the same resistance we all had to allowing and receiving our good– the very same resistance that was keeping out our desires for wealth, happiness and a myriad of unmanifested wishes. Resistance is resistance. To me, this was a huge revelation. The quality and vibration of resistance is not conducive to creating our Good regardless of the form it takes. It can be any of the derivatives of fear in their subtle forms; not the fight or flight fear that is for our survival, but qualities that are invisible to us until we root them out.

This type of resistance might be doubt in our abilities, lack of confidence, unworthiness, procrastination, fear of being criticized or a lack of Self Love, to name a few of the popular ones.

I invite you to look at any resistance you may have to creating, allowing and receiving your good. The best way to release resistance is to notice it, put it in the light of love and turn toward what you want to create. Use anything that you have noticed is a bridge of love-light for you. Meditation, music, exercise, or driving in the countryside can put you back in the receiving mode. A funny paradox is your power is not resisting resistance but transforming it into love. Create. Have fun. Sing. Dance. All of these activities release resistance.

There you have it. You will be in the vibration that creates worlds, which is really fun. This is a time when we are being asked to love ourselves in the highest and best way we know how and then increase that little by little every day.

I thank you. What blesses one, blesses all.

The photo for today contains meaningful symbols for me that, when viewed, take me right into my own creativity.

Transformation

By Nina Wilkins

We are in the midst of an incredible, immeasurable, mysterious, miraculous planetary shift of the ages. Wow. Almost too amazing to grasp. This change includes You. Your family, friends, pets, plants, trees, all animals, all species, soil, water, flowers– you name it. Every part of Gaia, Sophia, Virgo, Patcha Mama, our incredible Earth Mother, will transform and is transforming to a higher way of being Love. A higher frequency of Life and our higher spiritual Truths are manifesting all around us.

You may want to start small with these ideas as Sananda has told me often over the years that the planetary changes begin with us. You and I are building the New Earth by the way we live. Our consciousness of good is transmitting light to all around us. He has mentioned many times that the major changes in our world will be grass roots, from ourselves, our self love, to loving and forgiving our human family and to becoming conscious of the fact that we are all connected. We are not separate from our Creator, our Planet and all of her inhabitants including the Unified Universal Love of All.

Dandelions, frogs and butterflies show us by their lives how natural it is to transform into an entirely different form and still be themselves, though an expanded version of their essence. We are transforming into our higher selves as we speak. We are changing into our soul-infused personalities. As we become more aware and awaken to our good, we can make small changes that make a huge difference in our lives. In past blogs I have written about flower essences, charged water, crystals and music as simple and easy ways to help us transform daily.

Other readily available helpers are Herbs. Over the years learning about herbs and flower essences has been my hobby. We are all very unique in our bodies, emotions, beliefs and cultural adaptations, so I invite you to try a variety of herbs that you are drawn to. I have found Traditional Medicinals to be a high quality, reliable and available source of herbal teas. Teas are a good way to learn about herbs and to discover their benefits for You.

I have always loved dandelions. Their herbal profile is stated on the box in the photo below. Also, the Spirit of transformation is part of their essence. Your time will be well spent learning about and using herbs. One of my favorite mail order companies is Monterey Bay Spice Company. They are reasonably priced and have a beautiful online monthly newsletter. They sell herbs, spices and teas.

Every small change for the better we make in our lives will help the collective consciousness rise. Letting go of plastic will help our waters infinitely. Eating organic foods enhances our bodies but also soils and our farmers’ health. Riding bikes is fun and helps our air quality. So, let’s go. We do know what to do and be and it’s not too late.

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

Amethyst, quartz and rose quartz crystals and clear water for making Gem Water. Photo by Nina Wilkins

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.
