Water

Before enlightenment, “Chop wood; Carry Water.” After enlightenment, “Chop Wood; Carry Water.”

A book by this name was very popular in the 1980s.  

I find its message still very true.

I have loved studying and learning from Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature and the elemental kingdoms for most of my adult life.

Earth, Fire, Water and Air. I look at these elements through the lens of Divine Love. Earth is life. Fire is truth. Water is love. Air is the Elemental breath that gives rise to the connection, health and Divine Intelligence in all things.

We have entered the Golden Age of Aquarius which has as its overall governing principle, LOVE. Unconditional love, and comprehensive Divine Love.

WATER is Love in the elemental kingdoms. When you truly know this, you will want to help the waters on earth. 

The healing powers of water are a well known fact, and those powers are becoming more widely used.

Now it is our turn to give back to the waters. 

The water cycle itself is very magical and mystical. It is a closed circle and infinite in expression. A circle in Taoist Philosophy and sacred geometry is Love. The circle contains all and is empty at the same time. 

Water as a Divine Mystery is an extraordinary life giving, nourishing, cleansing, renewing gift for us all. Let’s help the waters and cherish their gift in deep GratItude.

I support and am deeply grateful for Water.Org. This organization with leadership from Matt Damon and many others, has the goal of furnishing safe drinking water for 771 million people.

You may want to support them with funding, prayers or involvement in a way that works for you.

Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature, the Animal Kingdoms, the Nature Kingdoms, the Elemental Kingdoms and the Waters thank you.

Dolphins

Now is the time of the Golden Dolphin.

Dolphins express and are Unconditional Love. 

Twelve times in Humanity’s history, the Golden Spirit Dolphins have wanted to share their wisdom, mysteries and secrets, but humanity was not ready. Now is the 13th time, and humanity is ready.

Water is the element of Love. Dolphins live in a sea of Love.

Masaru Emoto tells us he was guided by the Hado, or Spirit of Water, and was inspired and elevated in his thinking to create his amazing discoveries about “the memory” and communication in Water.

Dolphins

The photo above is a Crystal of water when he gave it the word “Dolphin.” Masaru Emoto created a Water Crystal Oracle. Number seven is the description for Dolphin: “Dolphins are our teachers of unconditional LOVE. Focus on them when you need to connect with this energy. Picture yourself surrounded by them in the ocean as you swim together surrounded by their bubbles of joy.”

As you look at this Dolphin “Crystal” you can see a stunning, shining visual of their essence of beauty.

Another of Masaru Emoto’s books that I love is The Healing Power of Water. It is very comprehensive, with three major divisions: Scientific Perspectives (five amazing chapters), Health and Healing Perspectives (five well documented and astonishing chapters), and part three, Spiritual and Mythological Perspectives (with 11 of my favorite chapters, including Chapter 21, “Rituals for celebrating the sacred gift of Water,” by Maril Crabtree.)

When I tune into Dolphin Consciousness and Kudos my, Seven Spirit Dolphin guides, they tell me “jump.” I always laugh when I do. Also synchronicity, serendipity and synergy are their calling cards. Because they are unlimited and live in Spirit and in body in the ocean, which is the greatest conductor of thought with feeling, telempathy is one of their gifts; they can  coordinate events for us for the pure delight of the experience.

Synergy is a Divine quality of the Golden age of Aquarius where cooperation, communication with love, and teamwork are the order of the day. Dolphins live in the Now in family groups. Their babies are their world. 

You can explore Dolphin Consciousness in your Meditations, shower, beach or pool. Their love and wisdom are always available for us. I like to see and feel Kudos in Dream time. You can have the intention of seeing them in your dreams and ask to remember your encounters. Sometimes I receive a feeling of exuberance, and other times the feeling of giant blue-green ocean waves that are carrying me out to sea; overwhelming peace, love and healing.

I’m very  grateful for Kudos with their love, guidance and inspiration telling me to “keep going.”

Flowers

Gardens have been my “go to” for peace, inspiration, hope and clarity for many decades.

The flowers, herbs, trees, shrubs and breezes have never failed me.

Sitting on a bench in a park, garden or forest I feel the presence of the Divine.

It doesn’t take long until I remember the part of our Lord’s Prayer that says “give us this day, our daily bread.” I remember the power of Now and feel and know that whatever I need for this day is at hand. Whatever I need to do this day, my intuition will guide me to do or be.

As soon as I feel that peace, I get up and start my day.

Today I’m sharing a tiny glass flower and vase that my sister, Charmaine, gave me. 

Whenever I’m not able to get to a garden, I go into my imagination or tune into the flowers in my room.

Another way I love flowers is through flower essences, books, herbs, and essential oils.

One of my favorite books is Magic Gardens, by Corinne Heline (copyright 1944). In it, she says:

“In Flowerland the whispers of heaven may become audible to the children of men; for the celestial hosts, too, have a way of ‘saying it with flowers.'”

She goes to quote this poem:

A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Rose plot,
Fringed pool,
Ferned grot–
The veriest school
Of peace; and yet the fool
Contends that God is not–
Not God! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I have a sign;
‘Tis very sure God walks in mine.
– Thomas Edward Brown

This book describes some of  the essences of flowers that Dr. Bach discovered as healing remedies.

A modern day company that makes “flower essences” is Green Hope Farm Flower Essences.

I have used many of their essences over the years. They capture the consciousness of the flowers and put it in bottles preserved with shiso, a type of vinegar,  rather than alcohol. 

Very magical. They have made essences from flowers all over the world.

Since the practitioners tune into the consciousness of the flower, you may also receive benefits by reading the descriptions on their website. I particularly love the “Venus Garden” and the “Irish  collection.”

One thing flowers thrive on is Appreciation. Try standing next to a flower you love and tell it how beautiful it is.  Maybe say you love its color, shape and fragrance, or just send it love and thanks from your heart. You wIll have made its day. The joy will spill right over into your day.

Paradise Is Where You Are

“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.”

The little book I’m highlighting today is Manifest Your Desires: 365 Ways to Make Your Dreams a Reality, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, The Teachings of Abraham.

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.

Dolphins

Dolphins have so much to teach us. 

They are masters of family love, teamwork, cooperation and joy.

There is a myth that at a time when humanity is ready they will share their knowledge of frequencies and sound, for creating, healing and spiritual understanding.

The legend goes that 12 times in humanity’s history, the dolphins wanted to share their wisdom, though humanity wasn’t ready.

Now, in this Age of Aquarius, the 13th time, the Golden Dolphins can share their wisdom.

The book I’m highlighting today is Angels of the Sea: Sacred Dolphin Art of Atlantis, by Michele Gold (copyright 1996). It’s one of my favorite books of all time.

Over the years I have misplaced this book, forgotten that I had it, and I have always been so delighted to find it again. I love opening it randomly to a page and finding the beautiful art and wisdom that feeds my Soul, my thought for the day.

I have often wondered why I haven’t always had it at my side. The only answer I could come up with is sometimes I haven’t been in a joyous or fun enough mood to receive it. Today I want to share one of my favorite illustrations with you. It  was on the original dust cover:

Michele had an incredible journey to be able to swim with wild Dolphins in the Bahamas.

Overcoming her fear of drowning and making the preparations of fitness and strength, swimming, treading water and needing to trust in the Dolphin Dreams she was having, she manifested her trip to the Bahamas. A beautiful story in itself, though that was just the beginning of her adventure to swim with and learn from pods of wild Atlantic Spotted, Spinner and Bottlenose dolphins.

If you aren’t going to have the opportunity to swim with Wild Dolphins anytime soon, I feel you will have an amazing adventure reading her book. The art, poetry by her love, Scott Huckabay, and wisdom from many other authors offer the reader a Divine Alchemy. Jumps for joy, beauty, love and inspiration– to mention a few of the transcendent qualities in this book.

From the preface: Dolphins are the messengers of love, Bodhisattvas of the ocean, transporters of myth, lucid dream connectors, ancient ancestors, beauty from all directions, teachers of all that should be known. Carriers of all stories, alchemists of energy, troubadours of wisdom, mystical mermaids… The angels of the Sea.

I have had the joy and almost indescribable experience of swimming with wild dolphins in San Diego, Coronado, San Clemente and Carmel, California. The encounters were brief, but I could feel their love, and kind of an electric energy as they grazed my leg while I was sitting on my surfboard. At other times, while I was body surfing or swimming, they jumped out of the water or swam by me and brought so many laughs and fun.

Wishing you joy,
Nina

One Grain of Rice

Many years ago, 1998,  I heard this phrase in the movie Mulan: “A single grain of rice can tip the scale. One (person) may be the difference between victory and defeat.”

These days, I hear that saying in my mind when I’m tempted to believe I’m not doing enough towards helping heal Mother Earth.

Of course, we can always do more, though in these times on Earth, Being more and radiating LOVE more can also be very helpful.

I really enjoyed this movie. It’s very entertaining and funny, and Eddie Murphy as the little “guardian dragon” is worth the YouTube rental fee. The young woman, Mulan, is highly courageous and creative, breaking the molds of her culture and following her intention to bring honor to her family in a very unique way. 

Our unique contributions to “tipping the scale” towards Love for all are needed now more than ever.

One smile could tip the scale. One kind word. One forgiveness. Oneness with Mother Nature and the Elemental Kingdoms all add up to a beautiful awakening to the New Mother Earth of joy, prosperity for all and LOVE.

You are needed beyond measure. There is no one like you in this Universe.

Joy, fun, laughs, play, art, music and your unique voice can tip the scale towards a LIGHT filled  creation you couldn’t have imagined you could accomplish, even one month ago.

Wonderful.

Divine Love

Women’s history, Mary Reynolds, part 2.

Einstein has taught us, “Logic will take you from A to B in a straight line, but imagination will take you everywhere.”

In the movie Dare to be Wild, one of the song lyrics playing in the background says, “Nothing grows in a straight line.” As we awaken to our own imagination and creativity, we open to a whole new part of our Divine Self. When our heart, imagination and intuition lead us, everything is new and filled with presence.

Steve Jobs told us, “You can only connect the dots in your life backwards.” I love that expression because many of the miracles I have experienced in my life have been in spite of myself. They have come unexpectedly and have reminded me of my Higher Self guidance to go places I would not have thought of. The most dramatic of these was when friends and I decided to attend “The Gathering of the Children of Light” in Mt. Shasta . This was on a whim. Our excitement was more about being together, camping at Crystal Lake and seeing the Mountain for the first time. To our surprise, we could have never guessed what that time would bring. That weekend, being with The Who’s Who of channeling, and 300 light workers (1986), changed my life for the better for ever. It put me very decidedly on my Higher Purpose Path.

I have learned over the years, channeling ascended masters and Divine Love, that one very important aspect of the Divine, and often overlooked in codified religious and spiritual teachings, is Divine Mystery.

 When you think about it, we have to have Divine Mystery or we couldn’t have the infinity of expansion that we have. Life would be a closed system. This mystery allows for discovery, aliveness, growth and fun. Scientists are happy to work around the clock when they are on the verge of a new discovery. Putting their knowledge and wisdom in a certain field, along with their imagination and intuition, helps them put the puzzle pieces together for new discoveries. 

When our heart and imagination leads our mind, our unique creativity is infinite. 

In the video above, Mary teaches us that when nature is left alone, in most climates, forests will return. Forests then can be a home to a myriad of species including a kingdom that is now being explored for its many benefits for all species: The Fungarium.

My friend, Deborah, recently gave me this amazing book. We see there are as many branches below the tree’s surface as there are above. I feel that is what is true for us also– that as many branches or more are within us as in our outer world. “As above, so below.”

This is a time of great Renaissance for Humanity, Mother Nature, the Animal Kingdoms, the Plant Kingdoms, Fungariums and the Elemental Kingdoms. All are growing in new ways: expanding, evolving, blossoming.

You and I are in an incredibly momentous time. Heaven on Earth is here now. We just need to see it, feel it and awaken to it. It just requires our attention, intention and expressing the unique, Divine Mystery that we are.

Divine Love

March is Women’s History Month.

Currently we have 7.9 billion people living on our incredible Grandmother Earth. Thank you to all mothers and grandmothers and great grandmothers. Your stories are amazing and filled with love, or we wouldn’t be here.

I want to thank my mother, Charlotte, and my grandmother, Ruth. 

Today, I would like to highlight Mary Reynolds’ work. She has been a positive force for Mother Nature and the Elemental Kingdoms for the last 25 years. She has been named in the top ten of landscape designers in the World.

You can learn of her story in the movie Dare to be Wild.

Her work has progressed over the years to where she is now being a Nature Guardian. She teaches people to grow their own food, nurture the landscape they already have and create an Ark where part of their land is untouched and left wild.

I learned of  this concept when I visited Findhorn, in Scotland, in 1982. A portion of their farm land is left wild, and people don’t even walk through that part of the garden. Over the last 30 years Findhorn has developed into a thriving Eco-Village. (See the Findhorn Garden book and To Hear the Angels Sing, by Dorothy MacLean.)

Mary is a way-shower for sure. 

I have watched the movie several times and am inspired by her courage and for not giving up.

Her story is one of accomplishing a dream that appears to be impossible and against all odds.

It’s never to late to add a chapter to your own unique story that is magical, fun, creative, joyful and miraculous.

We definitely can create heaven on Earth, NOW.

Transformation

I came across a video of Chris Nikic about a year ago.

I love his story so much.

Completing an Ironman Triathlon in the required time (17 hours) is no small feat for any person.

One day I rode my bicycle for 56 miles against headwinds and with lots of hills. For me that was a huge thing. I also one day swam a mile in a pool, not open water that has tides and currents. And one day I ran six miles. Each of these feats were big for me but they were singular and months apart. Whenever I hear of people doing an Ironman Triathlon, I marvel. A one-mile open-water swim, a 100-mile bicycle ride and a marathon (26.2 miles), consecutively, all in one day, within 17 hours. That is a super-human feat for anyone.

I love what has come of this for Chris, a passionate life with family and friends’ support, being part of the community and that great feeling of getting better every day.

His dad and a coach developed a great philosophy for him: 1% better every day. That caught my eye– not 20% or 30% or 100%– 1% better every day. One lap in the pool, learn to ride a bike, one extra step a day. 

I feel the keys in any goal setting are to have passion for its accomplishment and to have support.

Chris’ plan gives him one year of training. 1% better every day. No excuses, no complaining, no days off.

After following his story, I have taken that mantra: 1% better every day, no excuses, no complaining, no days off.

For me this has taken me out of overwhelm, and the feeling that my own personal goals are beyond reach, to getting 1% better every day. Even the smallest accomplishment gives me an uplift.

I hope you will enjoy these videos and be inspired to accomplish your own goals.

Heart Math

During the 1970s and 1980s I lived in Menlo Park, CA. It was a small town in those times, and I would walk or ride my bicycle to wherever I needed to go. Within a few blocks of each other were Stanford Research Institute, Noetic Sciences, East West Bookstore and The Heart Math Research Center. As I walked by I wondered what Heart Math meant.

Also at that time I lived within a mile of The Linus Pauling research center, Stanford University, and another mile up the hill, the Stanford Linear accelerator. 

Steve Jobs, in a motivational  speech, told us you can only connect the dots joining the events of your life backwards.

I have found that to be very true in my experiences.

Heart Math is one of those dots.

I was reaping the benefits in my higher consciousness of living in such close proximity to all of those organizations. I was receiving higher consciousness, new information, telepathically or in resonance and coherence without even realizing it.

In the early 1980s I went back to school and attended San Francisco State University. I was enrolled in a Physical Education Major and needed a Minor, so I enrolled in Nexus—Science and Humanities convergence. We studied Science courses paired with humanities. My first pair was Biology with English. I loved theses courses, as the research was showing that there was a “split-brain, split-culture,” phenomenon in our world because we hadn’t learned to use our whole brain in coherence with our heart.

That was in 1980-1982. The idea of the right side of the brain being intuitive, artistic and sensitive while the left side was logical, tending toward math and science, was not mainstream news yet.

Cut to connecting the dots of my present awareness with Heart Math. All of the concepts I learned in my Nexus studies have been verified and proven many times over. We are learning at an accelerated rate by using our whole brain intelligence combined with our heart’s intelligence.

Our heart actually has intelligence that is separate from our brain. When used coherently with our mind, we can become aware of our connection to all that is. We can easily tap into higher group consciousness. Teamwork and cooperation become the new norm. Our heaven on Earth     can manifest as we practice these simple coherence techniques.

I hope you will enjoy all three videos and see what is possible for Humanity, Now.
