Why Manifest Your Good?

Because manifesting is fun, creative and loving.

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.

Another very powerful teaching is by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer, Creating Money: Attracting Abundance.

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.

You Are a Gift and Bridge of Love and Light to All That Is

Pinkish Red, 1st Chakra; Yellow, 3rd Chakra

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.

Orange, 2nd Chakra; Green, 4th Chakra, Heart

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.

Indigo, 5th Chakra, Your Voice, Your Word

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.

6th Chakra, 3rd Eye, White, Celestial Realms and Spirit

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.

7th, Crown Chakra, Purple, Amethyst

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.

Violet, 8th Chackra, Soul Star

Mastering the Art of Creating, Manifesting and Receiving Your Good

Divine Prosperity is all around you. These truths will help you let it in if you will allow the change in your beliefs. A belief can be more than just a practiced thought. A belief might have been imprinted on you from a young age by your culture, your family, your friends or, most especially, your mother. Your mom is your early life line, and as a child what she says is law. So these learned beliefs contain your trust in life and also your faith and feelings of love from your mother. The following truths I have learned in creating, manifesting and receiving my good, so I wanted to share them with you.

Accept your self acceptance. (From Babaji in Unified: A Course on Truth and Practical Guidance from Babaji by Roger Lanphear.) Redundant? No. It’s like manifesting a glass of water. You have it, but you must receive it or accept it to have the benefit. You must drink the water.

Eckhart Tolle teaches us the biggest obstacle to receiving our good is affirming lack by saying “I Want,” rather than “I Have.” He reminds us of Jesus teaching, “whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24) The second part of that obstacle is that you can’t get yourself to believe it if it hasn’t happened yet in the outer world. When you allow yourself to go deeply in meditation to your own consciousness you will find “all that is” and discover how to receive your good. You can believe it.

Neville Goddard teaches us, “Get in the feeling of the wish Fulfilled” and your wish will manifest.

Saint Germaine teaches us every thing we could wish for is at hand right where we stand.

Mary Reynolds teaches us, “believe it has happened and it has happened”– “Thank you for my gold medal in garden design at the Chelsea flower show.” (Dare to be Wild)

Emmet Fox (Around the Year with Emmet Fox) teaches us the only thing we have to contend with is our own thoughts. We must root out and change beliefs we hold that don’t support our wishes. The most common one is “there is not enough” food, money, love, etc. It’s important to believe I am enough. I have plenty.

Abraham teaches us through the Hicks’ Ask and It Is Given to find ways to feel good and be grateful before the wish is fulfilled by knowing or believing that always, when you ask, it is given.

One of my favorite beautiful demonstrations of believing it has happened, and it has happened, is in the movie The Little Princess. The little girl and her friend are in the very cold attic with no food or blankets, and she describes to her friend in detail the banquet they are about to receive and believing do receive the bounty. Her descriptions are so vivid, you can smell the muffins and hot steaming tea.

Sananda teaches us that the most important thing you can do to receive happiness is to “Be the love that you are.” (Love Without End: Jesus Speaks… by Glenda Green) Abraham teaches us the most important thing to create the life that you want to live is to feel good. Appreciation of all that you have, facilitates both of these: being Love, and feeling good, as it is the same vibration as Love, the most powerful force in the universe.

I invite you to get in the feeling of your wishes fulfilled and feel thankful for them now as though they have manifested. Joy is your birthright.

I chose the photo of the Rose above as gardens have always helped me manifest my good. They give me peace so I can receive Divine inspiration. Also I receive from the spirit of nature the process of seed to flower. Very much happens in the dark, moist earth before the seed germinates. Enjoy each stage of your manifestations as they bring you the magic and Miracles of the Divine Mystery. Manifesting your Goods can be very satisfying and fun.

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 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.

Gentleness, Kindness and Appreciation: The Best Bridges to Love

Idaho Deer
Photo by Hana Wilkins

Last week we were driving in the mountains in southeastern Idaho, when this stunning whitetail buck came into view. His gentle, wise eyes met mine, and I felt a peace and gentleness from his gaze. Hana was quick enough to stop and capture the image in this photo. I was reminded that deer carry the quality of gentleness and beauty in the animal kingdom. They are also one of the keepers of the spirit of nature. That moment brought me to peace and a reminder to be gentle with myself and others.

I enjoy watching the Ellen Degeneres show. I always laugh and appreciate that her last word of the show is “ be kind to one another.” A little kindness can change a person’s entire life for the better. I have enclosed a link to a YouTube video that is by an astrologer I enjoy, and this week she has included a channeling from St. Francis of Assisi. It’s very encouraging, as she relates the current cosmic alignments of planets, combined with a wave of love from Divine mother are creating a wave of kindness. I am holding that image of a wave of kindness as I know that is the true reality of humanity.

We are coming upon one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. Giving thanks is one of the most powerful ways to experience love. Abraham, through all of the Hicks’ materials, teaches us to have a rampage of appreciation to feel Good, and that feeling Good is our most important way to receive our Good. Thanksgiving is our wonderful opportunity to share that feeling with many other people. The atmosphere of gratitude fills the air. We allow ourselves to give and receive thanks from our family and friends and have the chance to affirm abundance for all. With this wave of kindness at hand we will have the opportunity to sustain Thanksgiving all year long.

Many blessings and Happy Thanksgiving.

Water Walking Words 6

WATER, WALKING and WORDS, Part 6

Florence Scovel Shinn in her wonderfully powerful book, “The Game of Life and How to Play It,” teaches us that our word is our wand.

Dr. Zhi Gang Sha in his book, “Divine Soul Songs: Sacred Practical Treasures to Heal, Rejuvenate, and Transform You, Humanity, Mother Earth, and All Universes,” demonstrates how chanting “lu la lu la li,” meaning “Love, Peace and Harmony,” can change your life for the better.

I had the pleasure of meeting him many years ago in a workshop he was presenting. I felt and knew then, he was a genuine, real master spiritual teacher. He has many books and International Organizations teaching these simple practices of Words. Positive Words. Singing Love, Peace, Harmony. He has recorded many testimonials in his books of all manner of healings, by doing the simple practices of positive, loving Words.

Why are Words so powerful?

The Bible teaches us:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)

He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. (Psalm 107:20)

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.(Isaiah 55:11).

Our Words are very powerful because we are Divine Children. We are Creators. We are Love, and Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Affirmations and chanting positive Words align us with our Divine Source our powerful thoughts, and keep out fear, doubt and negativity that we don’t want in our Reality. Aren’t you most happy when you are creating? Singing, dancing, writing, gardening and being the Love that you are creates worlds.

When I am in a negative space, anger or doubt, disappointment or hurt feelings, I know I don’t want to stay there. I choose, as quickly as I can, positive “I am” statements. “I am Love. I am Peace. I am as God created me: perfect, whole and complete.” After a time, I can feel the inner Peace that allows the good ideas from the Divine to flow in. Solutions to the problems causing the upset arise. Rest from the worry allows the healing light to come in.  Little by little I see my part in the conflict and can forgive and move on. It really is that simple, though sometimes we are caught up in our “rightness,” which makes it seem not easy. Even one thought in the right direction can bring us to our peace, because peace is always available to us. Esther and Jerry Hicks, in their many books on the teachings of Abraham, tell us it only takes 17 seconds of positive thinking to redirect yourself into the positive flow of wellbeing.

Since we have been created out of Love, and we are still Love, let’s Love ourselves, our friends, our enemies and our Creator. What a concept. Let’s see what will happen when we do.
