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.

God Laughs in Flowers

Laughter is the best medicine.

Flowers are one of the strongest creations on Earth, so I would like to invite you to explore the benefits to your well being and wellness by trying a variety of flower essences and essential oils. You may discover for yourself why Sananda has told me that the Earth will be healed by flowers, Grandmothers and your innocence.

The most well known and popular flower essence is Bach’s Rescue Remedy. It is an all-around stress reducer and acts in a potent way to calm and bring peace during any crises, even if they are as small as the jitters you may have before a public speaking engagement. Flower essences can balance your emotional state, allowing any health-giving regimen a better chance to work. My own theory of why they work so well is that I believe flowers are incarnate Angels.

Whether a bouquet on your desk or night stand, essential oils as aroma therapy or a treat for you in your bath, flowers are healers and worth your attention. Edible flowers also bring beauty, joy and songs from the fairy kingdoms to your salads and desserts.

One stunning spring day my friends, Janette and Lorna, and I set out to hike in our favorite place, Soberanes Canyon, to make our own flower essences. Some days are sublime in every way with sweet breezes, wild flower fragrances, sunlight that sparkles and colors that look otherworldly. The nature spirits abound in this park, as it hasn’t been disturbed and is in the magical, mystical coast redwoods of Big Sur, California. We were all in a very good mood, being together on this glorious day, going for a hike and a picnic with a purpose of making a very special flower essence, Mountain Sorrel.

We found our special spot for our picnic under the Redwood canopy with Mountain Sorrel all around us. We had brought our special water and utensils and were ready to begin making the essence.

We were all very amazed, surprised and in wonderment when the flowers started singing. We were alone, and the strongest substances we had eaten were oranges and Chai tea. We were all glad that we were witnesses to this phenomenon together; we all heard it. My friend Janette sang back to the flowers, which increased our laughs and fun. We made the essences and felt very blessed and loved.

The effect this experience had on us was pure Joy. We all spontaneously sang hymns on our hike back, and the amazing part was that we were singing the words to songs we didn’t know. A very curious and very fun day, inspired by the overlighting devas of the woods and flowers– and Love.

I hope you will enjoy learning about the amazing being that a flower is. Their essences are easy to make. Instructions are given here in an earlier blog.

Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature and You, Dear Heart

Would you like to have a simple and easy way to feel refreshed, energized and ready for a new day?

Yes?

When possible do this right at sunrise, or any time of day. Walk into your yard or a natural place and stand barefoot on Grandmother Earth. Turn slowly and thank each of the directions: East, South, West and North. As you do this, sense that each direction has a different quality and feel to it. When I face North, I feel Peaceful, mentally clear and calm. When I face South I feel my child within is ready to play. Facing East always brings me reverence and a willingness to have a new spiritual perspective, even in just small ways. I’ve always loved facing West, as I’ve had the joy of living near the Ocean for most of my life. Looking out to the Western Ocean horizon always brings me expansion, Peace, and creativity.

Next, feel the enlivening Earth energy rising up in you and giving you refreshment. Bend over at the waist, let your arms hang freely and just let go of any worries, doubts or fears. Slowly stand up straight, lift your arms up, open and reach for the sky, and allow the Father Sky Love-Light to fill you up with fresh, life-giving air. Thank each of the Elementals: Air, Water, Fire and Earth for the liveliness they give you.

Next, if you are able to, jump up and down. You are refreshed, reset and ready for a new day.

Today, I’d like to share books and a website that I have found to be valuable. Each have inspired, uplifted and healed me in a very real way.

“In order to enter a deeper relationship with Nature, I was required to become a participant with Nature rather than continue in the role of onlooker. I did not find this at all easy. I was propelled into a metaphysical reality, a reality I did not enter willingly… We come to this planet with a clearly defined destiny, but as soon as we take on human form, we forget it. Life then carries us kicking and screaming toward our perfect goal while we try our hardest to abort the mission.” – Journey into Nature: A Spiritual Adventure by Michael J. Roads

I love this book as it is a real journey into Nature where you meet Pan, the Spirit of Nature, and the beingness of trees, minerals, rivers and dolphins. A truly transformative delight.

The next book came to me as a very welcome surprise one Christmas, from my sister, Charmaine. I had wanted to read it, as in the early 1980’s I had the opportunity of visiting Findhorn in Scotland. The author, Dorothy Maclean, was one of the three founders of the Findhorn community. To Hear the Angels Sing is a book you can read over and over again and feel it is the first time. It is rich with meaning and understanding of the spiritual intelligence and unconditional Love in and of Nature.

“It is said that God is Love. This is so, and as creation becomes more conscious, it expresses greater love. The essence of life, no matter what its consciousness, is Love. This is true of all kingdoms, and man’s greatest contribution to life on the planet is consciously to love, and so to bring health, vigor and beauty to life.” – The Landscape Angel, To Hear the Angels Sing

Today, more than 40 years later, the Findhorn community has become a thriving Ecovillage offering many subjects in Biodynamic gardening and all the principles Findhorn is based on. The main theme is to become beneficial stewards of Grandmother Earth.

Perelandra-ltd.com is a site you could spend days on. It contains Machaelle Wright’s books (some you can read on the site), flower essence products and videos containing her products and lovely views of her Center for Nature Research in Jeffersonton, Virginia. This site is a treasure for sure. Enjoy.
