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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Last week we were driving in the mountains insoutheastern 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 remindedthat 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.
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.
When I was a child and went to Sunday school we were taught that “Love reflects love.” As I grew up my mother told me often “birds of a feather flock together.” I was also told that “like attracts like.” What I didn’t know then was that those expressions are testimony to the “Law of Attraction.” Jesus taught us this principle when he said, “to those that have ,it is given, and to those who have not it is taken away.”In my young mind that statement didn’t seem fair. I thought we should give to those that have not. I didn’t understand the law of attraction. Yes, giving is appropriate and an attracting quality to good, though we each have to learn and discern what we are attracting by our thoughts, actions, and feelings, as that is what we will get more of. The expression “nothing succeeds like success ,” is another way we discover this principle.
