“Wherever my travels may lead, paradise is where I am.” ― Voltaire
Esther and Jerry Hicks have been teaching the principles of deliberate creation for about three decades.
I have loved their “Teachings of Abraham” as they are simple to apply and get results. I’ve felt that they definitely come from a higher place. After all of these years, also, their work has helped shift the consciousness of hundreds of thousands of people.
I have used their book Ask and It Is Given in classes I have taught. My favorite part is “going up the emotional ladder” and how to shift negatives to positives, knowing how important your feelings are. Their books are all a reminder of the power of the Law of Attraction. ‘What is like unto itself is drawn.”
I wanted to share a couple of passages that are some of my favorites. Source is Father Mother God, or the Universe of Love light and well Being without any Religious charge on the word. I also like this little book because of the colors and Nature Art. Every day is a different color, the infinite variety of nature.
Two passages from the book:
I have found in my own experience that taking the time to go up the emotional scale until I am feeling love and appreciation makes all the difference in my day. The Hicks teach that every morning, when you awaken have a rampage of appreciation, create your own book of positive aspects, and meditate for 15 minutes. I have found that doing this consistently makes all the difference in my awareness to move towards my good and create amazing moments and miracles.
If you haven’t worked with these principles yet, give them a try. We have entered the Golden Age of Aquarius where Love is the Power and Creating heaven on Earth is our purpose.
Have fun and joy in your unique contributions for the good of ALL.

We have learned from Abraham, in the Hicks material, how very important it is for us to feel good. One of my favorite books of theirs is Ask and it is Given. A very easy to understand and practice “how to” for raising your vibration.
Esther Hicks has been teaching us for 30 years to make feeling good a priority in our lives so we can attract the life we want to live. Sound, music and singing are a valuable way to raise our vibration so we can feel good.
We have access today to an infinite variety of music, sound and singing on YouTube. Amazing performances like the ones included here are free. Each of these always help me raise my vibration to joy and gratitude.
This year I am going to treat myself to more enlivening sound frequencies. One that I have known about for a while is the F sharp tuning fork. It aligns the heart chakra.
Another is Tibetan bowls and bells. The sounds they give off are frequencies that uplift. The vibrations are also tangible. Crystal Bowls are another powerful transmitter of high frequencies.
I am going to have fun this year learning more about creating with Sound.
The video at the top of this blog is one of my all-time favorites.
The piece at the bottom is “’El Condor Pasa,’ an original Peruvian Folklore (song) popularized by Simon and Garfunkel in 1970. ‘If I could’ is the best known Peruvian song from the Zarzuela El Condor Pasa composed by Daniel Alomia Robles in 1913. From 2004 this piece is a Cultural Heritage of Peru. This theme is considered the second National Anthem of Peru. ‘The Condor flies in both the Americas connecting all Native races.’
Performed by Peruvian musician Alexandro Querevalu with a native Indian flute called Quena and traditional Andes Regalias (poncho) is felt deep within the Soul.”
You may also want to explore sound, music, drumming and singing as it is not only uplifting but gives rise to our Highly creative Soul.
One very simple way to bring out our own unique spiritual gifts is through Color.
Our own being is very Colorful. Our aura is ever changing rainbows of light. Color can uplift our mood and give us energy. Today I have included photos of flowers that match our eight Chakras. We have recently added our Soul Star Chakra to our familiar seven. Chakras are our wheels of energy that form our electric body.
In several of my blogs I have mentioned or quoted the Hicks material, The Law of Attraction, and how Abraham teaches the importance of feeling good. Actually, the utmost importance of feeling good. “Think thoughts that make you feel good when you think them” is their powerful teaching.
Color, like music, art, dance and our creativity, can uplift us to a place where we can think thoughts that make us happy. One summer when I lived in Carmel, CA, it was completely overcast and foggy for several weeks. So much so that the local drugstore began selling pink lightbulbs that would uplift, and very bright lights.
Coloring with Crayola brand crayons never fails to uplift me. I love feeling my happy inner child as I just take the time to Color for the fun of it. When I was growing up and was bored or just feeling down, my mom would say, “Why don’t you Color?” Coloring uplifted me enough to get a good idea of what to do next in my day, and that still holds true for me.
A friend of mine, who is a therapist, would practice on me with her Color therapy. She would have me sit quietly with my eyes closed and then would drape me with various vibrantly Colored silk cloths. After each one she would ask me how I felt and what quality or Color it was. I was surprised that a brown cloth made me feel Peace and I thought it was sky blue. I felt the red was green and the sunshine yellow was purple. I really enjoyed the time we spent because it emphasized for me how much the Color of my clothes affected my mood. That was many years ago, and I still close my eyes and feel the Color of my clothes to see if they uplift me.
The simple use of Color to uplift or enhance your mood can make that slight difference to lead you to the next thought or inspiration to keep you spiraling upward to create your good. Color is one of the many reasons I go to gardens to feel inspired. White is every reflected Color. Black is every absorbed Color. Nature’s infinite variety of Color gives us chances to experience Color from sunrise to sunset, moonlight, starlight and the play of light on flowers and trees. The diamond light dancing reflections on the ocean or lakes and streams gives me joy.
The photos above and below are not exact representations of the Colors of our eight Chakras, but they are close enough to remind us we are part of nature and all that is. Looking at favorite Colors or eating foods that are your favorite Colors can enliven you. Color is a valuable Bridge of Love Light.
When I was growing up and asked my mom for something I really wanted, she would often say: “We’ll see. Let’s let it unfold.” Combined with that thought was the affirmation I had learned in church from Mary Baker Eddy, which was, “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.” That affirmation and my mom’s “Let’s let it unfold,” are good ways to understand the Now of our new world. In allowing for our wishes to unfold, we can allow the cooperative components of Universal love to play their part in our manifestations as Abraham, through the Hicks‘ material, teaches. I have seen many demonstrations of Always Meeting My Need just at the perfect time. One such occurrence happened yesterday; I received Summer with the Leprechauns in the mail.
Over the last few years, since about 2011, several of my friends have asked me, “Have you read Summer with the Leprechauns?” I would answer, “No, but I really want to.” I attempted to order it a few times, but the order didn’t go through, and I left it for another time, which is Now. Perfect timing.
Wonderful. So many aspects of our New Earth of communing and learning from the elementals in Ireland are described. The story is very engaging, because the author, Tanis Hellliwell, is experiencing a relationship with a Leprechaun family whose mission is to teach humans the ways of the elementals. I am learning so many new perspectives for helping and healing Mother Earth and assisting the elementals in their work. From the simple ways to chose foods that are good for us and not harmful to the beings that help them grow, to watching what thoughts and emotional energy we send into the world.
I believe this is the perfect time for You to read this book. So much joy and enlightenment.
Another treasure that I just had the good fortune to see is a documentary film on Netflix, My Octopus Teacher. This incredible story would have been unbelievable and relegated to a whimsical “fairy tale” just a few years ago. The viewer gets to experience first hand the relationship the videographer has with an octopus. His skill and sensitivity create such a beautiful documentary that is very inspiring. Our connections with all of creation are documented in a very unique and loving way.
After seeing this beautiful creation and reading Summer with the Leprechauns, I can’t help but feel the urgency for all of us to awaken and realize in a very real sense we are all needed and integral parts of Mother Nature, Divine Love and the elementals .
We are all needed to bring our joy, intelligence and love to be shared by all in our Golden Age, which is present NOW.
There are powerful spiritual Laws we can all learn and use.
Emily Dickinson said it: “All I know of Love, is Love is all there is.”
“Be still and know that I am God.” The presence of our Creator wells up within us in the stillness. We feel peace and joy.
I love Eckhart Tolle’s book Stillness Speaks, a wonderful book that affirms this idea.
Meditating is the ideal way to hear your still, small voice. The YouTube video at the end of this blog is a meditation with Eckhart Tolle. It’s not a lecture. You can meditate right along with Eckhart. It brought me so much peace and the feeling that all is well.
God is Love and everywhere present.
“Our only responsibility is to accept the Atonement for ourselves.” Atonement means being at one with our Creator and all that is, Oneness. (Via “A Course in Miracles,” Foundation for Inner Peace.)
“Birds of a feather flock together”– My mom’s favorite expression. Better known as the Law of Attraction.
You are a perfect, unique, innocent, child of God, who loves you beyond your comprehension. You inherited your Father-Mother God’s ability to create. You create by your thoughts, words and feelings. Tell the story to yourself and others, your story, the story that you WANT to live. As we affirm and tell our story the way we want it to be we create it. We need to believe it to see it. — Sananda, Abraham and Saint Germaine
There are two very important components to manifesting, allowing and receiving your Good. One, Forgiveness of yourself and others, and two, BEING in the qualities of gratitude, thanks and appreciation.
Forgiveness returns us to love. A wonderful book by that name, A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson, teaches us, in depth, how Love does its job as we forgive ourselves and others.
Thanks, Gratitude and Appreciation put us in the vibration of Love where we can create and allow our good. A wonderful book, Ask and It is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, teaches us the nuts and bolts of vibrational creation and manifesting, by using rampages of appreciation and intentionally feeling good by focusing on what we want to create.
Note: we also have the ability to temporarily block our good by un-love, which is in truth a fiction because Love is all there is. We do this by using our free will backwards by criticizing, condemning and complaining. We can quickly jump forward by realizing we are love and have the ability to create a wonderful life for ourselves by returning to Love.
There you have it. Many of the simple yet powerful laws of the Universe that manifest in infinite ways.
So, as Abraham says, through the Hicks material, the most important thing is for us to feel good. As we feel good we can create our desires.
Enjoy the fun, joy and satisfaction of creating your good by letting Love do its job.
The photos for today are of wild roses growing by the creek in our neighborhood. With their pink hue and sun-yellow centers they bring vitality and uplift to you. Their fragrance is subtle and sweet. Since many grow along the path, the sweet breeze carries you along your walk and with the negative ions in the air from the rushing creek nearby your thoughts and feelings are lifted and energized.
Such a wonderful way to start the day.
A very fun thing I have done in my life is make friends of plants, trees, flowers and of course the obvious– our beloved pets; dogs, cats, horses, and a very dear hamster.
If you would like to make friends with a flower it is easy and rewarding as flowers love to share their essence with you. Since they have lived on our Grandmother Earth for 114 million years, each has a unique set of patterns, wisdom and frequencies to share.
Step one is to stand or sit next to the flower you choose. Step two is to appreciate your new friend. Tell her what pleases you– fragrance, color shape or feeling. Flowers love appreciation. Step three is to just be with her. Be still and breathe in her essence. Just be in a relaxed state of allowing and ask what she would like to share with you. You may receive words to a song, a feeling, a thought or information that will help you. Step four is to thank her and ask if there is anything you can do to make her more comfortable. Step five is to enjoy the feeling of having made a new friend.
Flow is the first part of the word flower, and they all have a very special way to return us to Love, our natural flow. Receiving help simply by making a connection with a flower will open the many doors for you to incredible Divine Mysteries in Mother Nature. Trees, Herbs, Butterflies, Hawks, Owls, Deer, Clouds, Streams, Dragonflies, Lady Bugs… to name a few, are all very unique, even among their own species. A world of wonder awaits you to open to a conscious connection with these beings, as we are all already connected in spirit to all that is.
A few years ago I attended a spiritual retreat in nature. We gathered around a tree to thank it for its service of bringing us clean air and shade and asked it how we could help it. Several participants ventured eloquent metaphysical, and fairly complex, ideas of how we could help this lovely being when one of the ladies shouted, “This tree just wants a drink of water!” We all laughed. We just needed to open and allow the wisdom of the tree to come to us.
I have always been uplifted by gardens, forests, oceans and trees. Abraham, through Esther and Jerry Hicks, teaches us the most important thing for us to attract the life we love is to feel good. Mother Nature has never failed to help me feel a little better, then better, until I’m lifted to a place where my creativity starts to flow. That is one of my favorite and best feelings.
I’m writing about these bridges because they bring us joy, our natural estate, and connections to our high selves, which consciously connect us to our source. When we feel connected to our higher love light we can easily contact and express our creativity. Expressing our creativity at this level is Divine– and very uplifting and fun.
We each have our own unique, individualized bridges. Discovering them is fun. When I ask my inner being what is my most uplifting bridge of love light today, it almost always has to do with Mother Nature, trees, flowers and water. Sometimes, my bridge to a higher feeling tone is cleaning my bathroom. I always say to my high self, “Are you sure that is it?” I do it, and sure enough, it makes me feel super happy. It looks shiny and feels clean. I love shiny things.
Our happiness is important and can come in many surprising ways. I have been following Abraham’s teachings, Esther and Jerry Hicks, for quite some time. They teach the most important thing is for us to feel good. “Think thoughts that make you feel good.” Sometimes that feels out of reach, so I try their other practices that never fail me. Step one, meditate for 15 minutes every day. Step two, go on a “rampage of appreciation.” Step three, release resistance to your good. Allow your good. These are all very potent bridges to your highest good.
Another powerful bridge is the Power of Now. When we become still, we allow the stillness to bring up our presence, Our Love, Our beingness. From this place of consciousness we can discover our connection to all that is. We become our own bridge of love light, then our appreciation of our creator, Mother Nature, our friends, our talents and our selves, grows by leaps and bounds. Life becomes fun. We feel like singing and dancing.
Today, my wish for us all is to discover our bridges. We have entered the Golden Age of Aquarius so we have available to us, with easy access, The Power of Now, LOVE everywhere Present. Creativity supported by the Divine. We are One in Spirit and are realizing this fact. Unity consciousness is helping us to Co-operate and enjoy teamwork and is supported by these new frequencies. These are the main qualities of our new world and each is infinite in expression.
I wish for us to explore and discover our own expressions of the qualities that bring us joy, joy, joy.
Flowers and flower essences never fail me, along with going out to lunch with my daughters and friends, body boarding in the ocean, watching the sun rise and set, seeing the beauty and interconnectedness of Mother Nature, and an infinity of discovery of God’s Good for us All.
My spiritual teacher, Emma Curtis Hopkins teaches: “Everyone knows what their Good is.
Move toward your Good.” Your Good is your own unique bridge of love light. Enjoy more
of your good, as it is infinite and always waiting for your discovery.
Water is the expression of Love in the elemental realms. As we begin our New Year, 2020, Water can help us with clarity and Higher-Self Vision.
When we think of the elements, Earth, Air, Water and Fire, it is easy to realize that Air is one and connected to all. Earth is contiguous and connected and one being. We see Fire everywhere from sunlight, and see Fire as one when one candle lights another and is not diminished in doing so.
Water is also one whole being— Love.
We can put Water in a jug, and it seems separate from the whole, though the Hado, or spirit of Water, is present in the jug and still part of the whole.
We humans are like that. We seem to be separate from the whole of humanity and our Creator being in our bodies, but we are not. We are an integral part of the whole Spirit of Humanity.
We can receive clarity just by gazing upon a body of Water.
Our new decade, 2020, by its nature of 2020 vision, gives us many chances of seeing with a Higher Perspective. For this New Year, I’m not making “resolutions,” but instead I’m claiming more of my Divinity and the ability to make a difference for our Waters of the world by my thoughts, prayers, feelings, Gratitude and, of course, action.
I will be transmitting telepathically daily the picture of clean, clear Waters around the world; clean oceans, rivers and streams. If you would like to join me, wonderful. Just picture and feel what it would be like to have global clean Water.
Water corresponds to our emotional body. Our feelings. We have learned from Abraham, through the Hicks’ teachings, that it only takes 17 seconds to start the process of feeling better by thinking a thought that makes us feel a little better. Abraham also teaches us how important it is for us to feel good as our feelings attract our experiences. Water– clean, clear, pure, fresh Water– can help us feel good.
We have explored in previous blogs the main attributes of the Divine. Of course all of these attributes are infinite in expression. Our Source, our Divine Creator, is unlimited, but these main qualities give us a working knowledge of who we are as Divine Children. One thought that has helped me in my spiritual unfolding is “I didn’t create myself. I have a very loving Father-Mother God.” We can claim those same Divine qualities as part of ourselves: Principle, Mind, Soul, Spirit, Life, Truth and Love. In manifesting our Good we concentrate on Life, Truth and Love as building blocks for our creations.
In the previous manifesting blogs we spoke of thought patterns, energies and beliefs we agreed to help change, and next specific parts of Mother Nature we chose to help. Now the third part of manifesting is to use our special gifts and talents to create and share.
Contemplate that you are unique not only in the Earth realm but in the Universe. When I meditate on that principle I feel the love of my Creator. The first time Sananda told me I was “the Beloved” I was overwhelmed by the thought. You are “the Beloved.” Sharing and developing your unique gifts, talents, perspectives and Beingness will bring you great joy and success. A life’s work takes a lifetime.
Sometimes a very valuable contribution we are making is invisible to us because it is us. Our Beingness is a great contribution because there is no one like us.
Our intuition is a gift we all share. Our innocence as a little child is intact and can help us manifest and lead us to our Good. My daughters have demonstrated this to me over a lifetime. On one such occasion, my youngest, when she was three years old, saw a two-wheel bike in the window of a shop when we were out for a walk. This bike I feel any little girl would love and wish for. A pink bicycle with pink and white streamers from the handle bars, a cute woven basket, a bell and training wheels. We were walking with a friend who noticed Hana’s wide eyes and reluctance to leave without the bike. At that point in time it was out of my price range, and I explained we couldn’t take it home. A few days later, in the morning Hana wouldn’t leave our front window.
She stood there for about half an hour, and I asked her if she wanted to go outside and play. “No,” she said “I’m getting a pink present today.” I said, “OK.”
Another 30 minutes went by with her standing expectantly by the window. For a very active three-year-old this was very unusual. Sure enough, a van pulled up that I didn’t recognize and a lovely woman I hadn’t met before stepped out with the bicycle. Hana yelled, “There is my pink present!” The woman was a neighbor of my friend and just wanted to do a random act of kindness. What joy that bike brought to all concerned.
When you want to manifest or create something for yourself, remember what Abraham teaches, “It’s as easy to create a castle as a button.” Ask your inner being, intuition,or inner child, “Does this hold Life for Me? Does it contain or express Love? Is it really true for Me?” When you pause and ask yourself these questions you will manifest your Good.
Have fun with it and allow the Divine Mystery to surprise you with gifts that are just for You, which I find is such a big part of the fun.
Manifesting allows the universe to surprise you with goodness that is meant just for you.
One thought I received from Sondra Ray and Leonard Orr was that everyone was born with a main pattern to heal: the scarcity belief of not enough, failing to get even, birth trauma, the parental disapproval syndrome and lack of self-love, to name the main ones.
In my early spiritual seeking I realized the scarcity belief was something I needed to transform and heal. That quest has led me to a myriad of teachings, books, travels and healings. One skill I have learned along the way is direct manifestation for what I need or want. As I have mentioned in previous blogs, gardens and flowers have healed, inspired and brought me peace.
One such garden is in Findhorn, an intentional community, which, now, more than 33 years later, is an Ecovillage. Findhorn was founded by Eileen and Peter Caddy (The Findhorn Garden: Pioneering a New Vision of Man and Nature in Cooperation) and Dorothy Maclean. The amazing thing they accomplished was to found a community by listening to their spiritual guides, Divas, and the Spirit of nature. Findhorn is located on the North Sea in Scotland. When Eileen and Dorothy received spiritual guidance to plant a garden, they thought they were not hearing correctly. That location is cold, windy and with beach sand for soil. They channeled the guidance and Peter carried out the instructions. With just these three and their children having the courage to follow their guidance they grew plants, trees and vegetables. The garden was so amazing it drew gardeners from Edinburgh to find out how this was possible and ask “what were they doing?”
The principles were all around working with the Spirit of nature and the Divas, or Earth Angels. In working in this way they learned how to directly manifest what they needed for themselves and the garden. Soon, they attracted a new member to their team, David Spangler, who has since written several books about manifestation.
The fun part for me about learning to manifest is feeling loved by the Universe. Now, today, Abraham, through the Hicks materials, is teaching thousands of people how to manifest their desires. I love their thought that it is as easy to manifest a castle as a button. Also that in 17 seconds you can feel better by directing your thoughts to ideas that make you feel good.
These thoughts and beliefs have worked for me over the years:
“Everything is at hand.” – Saint Germaine
All Substance is Spiritual. “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.” – Mary Baker Eddy.
“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Jesus (Matthew 21:22)
Use delight as motivation and gratitude and appreciation to allow and receive your good.
Thank before it has come.
So over the last 33 years I have discovered and used all of the tools, thoughts and beliefs to overcome the scarcity belief: meditation, prayer, visualization, channeling high level guides, books, workshops, travel, teaching workshops and visiting incredible gardens and nature spots. Now, Sananda has told me that I have overcome the scarcity belief; he doesn’t want me to believe it. It has been an incredible journey, and I’m grateful for the lessons and manifesting more than I could have ever wished for materially and Divinely.
A very small Hallmark book I used to read my daughter, Roeya, still comes into my awareness and hers, as it was simple, tender, loving kindness, the best manifestations of all: Let me love the little things (Hallmark editions), by Helen Lowrie Marshall.
Dear God, please give to me
A thankful heart for little things
For sunshine on my kitchen floor
For news the postman brings
For memories in the making
Things the children do and say
That I will smile about, perhaps
Some future, lonelier day.
Grant me appreciation
Of the small joys that are mine
The children’s birthday parties
My honeysuckle vine
The clean, fresh smell
Of clothes just washed
The ivy on my wall
The children’s thrilled delight
To wake and find the first snowfall.
For robins in the springtime
And autumn’s crispy weather
For leaves that crunch
Friends in for lunch
And laughter shared together.
Give me enthusiasm
To greet each brand new day
With an honest joy in living
As I go my simple way
I do not ask contentment
That would ambition stay
But let me love the little things
I find along the way.
