The Polygamist’s Daughter

A long time ago and a world away, I started writing The Polygamist’s Daughter.

It was a book about growing up in the polygamist cult of my childhood. The name of the book changed several times over the years of writing and re-writing as I grew and came to understand the story from my more mature and enlightened perspective.  Perhaps I become complacent, knowing that I owned the name and domain and never imagined anyone else would step on my Polygamist’s Daughter toes.

Several years ago I did a test run of my book and it sold like hotcakes during the test launch. I pulled it off the market because it wasn’t up to my standard. It needed the hand of an exceptional editor that could polish it from my work-of-heart to a work-of-art.  Just publishing a book for the sake of being a published author wasn’t enough. I already have one fabulous book on the market and I know the painstaking process of writing a book worthy of the masses. I wanted to make sure that what I shared with the world wasn’t just another story of polygamy, but a book that shifted perspectives and awareness.

The polygamist’s Daughter is my work-of-heart and that’s what I’m now sharing with you. 

FLY FLY AWAY COVER 2018-1.jpgThe Polygamist’s Daughter book, with a more provocative name and subtitle will be published later this year. Fly, Fly Away: From the Prisons of Polygamy to the Freedom of Deep Truth is my story of enduring the insult to my soul and learning to trust my own inner voice as it guided me out of my predestined life and into the world of my own creation. (Final cover still in design process.)

Self-trust is the greatest trust of all. 

I’ve decided to use this blog space over the coming months, while my book is being polished and perfected, to share snippets of the book as I move through its final rendering. Stay tuned as I share bits and pieces with you and keep you posted as the official launch date arrives.

I am also re-launching Transcending Fear as a second edition with one more principle and expanded story. I will be sharing tidbits on this blog as well as I get closer to the publishing date.

None of it does any good sitting on my computer when all of it is meant to be of maximum service to humanity!

If you haven’t signed up to be on my mailing list, just jump to the home page, pickup your free gift and sign up to receive my insights newsletter. This way you can stay up to date as the launch dates approach for these two books, along with others that are in process.

Why Visioning Doesn’t Work

I’ve been feeling a tug to start my own party.

Several years ago I had a talk with my future-self and asked, looking back, who I was. What came through were the words, “Books on Film” to the 80s tune, Girls on Film. Yes, I’m dating myself…When I asked myself what that meant, the response was, “books, events, films.” I knew in that moment, somewhere down the road, this was my bigger purpose.

For the past few years I’ve wanted to step into greater leadership and move beyond my own teaching into creating something much bigger than myself as a solo-mompreneur. I’ve been feeling an inner urging to move beyond telling my own story, and help others tell theirs.

In January of this year I kept hearing my internal voice saying, “it’s time to start your own party.” This isn’t about a political party – let’s get that clear. This is about publishing, event management and film projects that create a win/win/win. Over the summer I took a break to just be and consider the inspiration that moved through me. During this quiet time I became more clear on what’s next and and how to structure it.

What culminated during my introspection is the next big thing in greater service to all of you.

My kids went back to school a few days ago and it’s now time to get back to work. As I sat a few mornings ago during my quiet “me” time, before the rest of the house awoke, this is the message that came through:

“Take the bull by the horns, so to speak, and get things done.

It is less about being done as it is about swift, decisive, inspired action. Decide – cut off. You are the decision maker and you control time by the choices you make. No active decisions and time slips by. Acting without specific intent and you find yourself wondering where the time went.

You are the Universe manifested as you.

attraction_is_actionAll of it is at your command. You are the wizard and the sorceress. You decide and the universe complies. It is that simple.

Set your decision into motion and all the working parts come together. This is the case in all things. Those who decide, succeed. They don’t doubt. They believe and do. That is what faith is. A person’s morality has nothing to do with it.

Stop overthinking the process and just do it. Start in the direction and the universe complies. It isn’t about the amount of action you take but your active moving in the direction of your desire. The Universe meets you at your point of action and provides additional opportunities for you to act upon. It’s always your choice whether to act upon inspiration and opportunity. The Universe supplies – it’s up to you to see and to act.

Organize, have a plan, and visualize the outcome. While visioning is vitally important, vision without action is futile. The universe can only comply to the degree of action you are willing to take. Your action sets it all into motion and solidifies your intent.

Action without vision is mindless doing. Vision without action is wishful thinking.

Now is the time to move into action and show the world, and yourself, the greatness that has always been within you. Take the bull by the horns and run with it. Now is the time for the ride of your life.

So be it.”

This was a message I really needed to hear. I’ve spent way too much time in my life visioning the outcome and hoping that it will all just fall together like magic. But the magic doesn’t happen without action. It requires my action and the actions of others. Without action, there is no movement and ideas become stale.

As I’ve said before, half of the word “attraction” is action. I can’t help but wonder how many of people look at the Law of Attraction and apply wishful thinking, then wonder why the thing they desire doesn’t manifest. If you want to make your dreams come true, you can’t wait around for someone else to act for you. You are the only one who sets your dream into motion.

Belief combined with action creates reality – in other words, faith without works is dead.

Are You Afraid of Money?

I know the idea of being afraid of money sounds ludicrous from a logical perspective, but I can’t help but wonder how many people have a fear of money, lurking just under the surface.

That was me a few years ago. Money, although not really a bad word, actually triggered me a bit. The word itself made me just uncomfortable enough that I couldn’t say it without a little inner cringe.  Instead I used words like, “abundance” or “prosperity” to make me feel more comfortable around the subject of money. Although I didn’t see money as a monster, in a way, that’s exactly what it was. When I started digging deeper into my beliefs around money I found a boat-load of them and they were all bound by fear. No wonder I kept finding unconscious ways to sabotage myself every time I go close to “making it big.”

fear-of-moneyNow I find myself teaching workshops and programs on money and self-worth. I see how much damage the fear of money has created on our planet and now I teach others how to see money though they eyes of love.

In pondering on money a few days ago, these are several messages that came through:

“Money comes and appears in many forms and it is vital that you see it all with gratitude. Clean up the money clutter that dams your flow and you will surprise yourself how easily it will come to you. Focus on the clearing of any clutter, mentally and financially, that blocks your free flow. Clean up any messes you have made. No “buts,” as they too are dams to what you want. Everything you seek to fulfill your higher purpose is already on its way to you. You simply need to un-damn its flow. Release any and all blocks, de-clutter your physical and metaphysical house and watch all that you desire flow to and through you with greater grace and ease. You have released all contracts of poverty from your younger years and now success, physical and financial, yearns to flow through you if you will let it. You heard me, money wants to flow through you. As energy, it wants to flow though you as easily as water, air, electricity and love. Money wants to flow through you as prosperity is encoded into the DNA of all things. Release any and all energy blocks and see what magic occurs. All things are created to flow with prosperity in its energetic veins. As are you!

This came the following day:

“This morning we are continuing on this concept of money. Money is energy. It is the physical, and now becoming less and less physical, as it returns to its original form of the energy of ex-change. It is merely  a physical symbol for gratitude and giving. The issue is that some have hoarded it and attempted to dam it from others. Just as there are some who have attempted to dam all other resources to withhold it for themselves. Eventually those who hoard too much, lose what they have, as the dams can only hold so much or the dam breaks and the flow returned to the people. If it were possible to control air and sunlight, they would, and there are those who have tried. This is not a judgement, simply a reflection of the human condition when the heart has a heart-condition. The cause of the condition is fear, which then becomes greed and the belief of win/lose. None of this is true of course, as the way of Earth and all of the Universe is abundance. Growth and prosperity is the one guarantee that exists in all things. It may not always look that way as the cycles of feast or famine are played out and yet, they are cycles. No one has ever needed to steal from another. Cooperation is the driving force behind human evolution – not competition. Human being’s ability to work together ensures survival of the species. That is why so many of you now are being called and compelled to cooperate. As your world hangs in the balance, this co-operation will take you into the next phase of your collective evolution. Yes, it will still include money – money infused with a higher vibration that re-balances the field and makes all things possible. Clear your money clutter and release your damns – mental, emotional, spiritual and physical, so that this new money can flow to you with ease. “

Yes, I spelled the words correctly, as they came to me. Some of this is a play on words, what is often referred to as the alchemy of language.  When we damn anything we also dam it. Any time we speak badly, or more precisely, poorly about money, we damn it, and as such we dam its flow. Anytime we damn someones else who has money,  we dam ourselves from having more of it. Anytime we see money as a cause of evil, rather than a tool for transformation, we dam our own flow. Anytime we complain about what we don’t  have, we are telling the universe to give us more of what we don’t have. The universe is abundant in all things, even those tings we don’t want.

Unconscious fear-based belief about money can be hazardous to one’s health, well-being and ability to be of greater service. It is impossible to give what you don’t have. Those who have any part of them that is resistant to having money and seeing money through the eyes of love, may be damning money and damning their own flow.

If you hear or see the word money, and feel uneasy about how the word resonates within you, check your beliefs. They might surprise you.

Easter, Paganism & Christianity

Easter for me is radically different than it is for many people I suspect. When I was a little girl in the very fundamentalist cult, we didn’t celebrate pagan holidays which included Christmas and Easter. Pagan was synonymous with evil in my parent’s eyes.

After I left home I let go of any religious affiliation of any kind and eventually found my own truth.

The so-called Pagan holidays have a new meaning for me. In my new awareness, Easter is a celebration the resurrection of life. It is a celebration of life renewing itself as it does each spring. It is a celebration of the magic of renewal as life rises from the darkness and into the light. It is a celebration of the Divine Feminine resurrecting life through all things. This has been the celebration since the time when humans first made the correlation between the phases of the sun and the moon and life sprouting from the earth.

eostreFor those of you who like to dig into the evolution of belief, one of my favorite subjects, Eostre is the Germanic Goddess of Spring. Also known as Ostara or Eastre, She gave Her name to the Christian festival of Easter (which is an older Pagan festival appropriated by the Church), whose timing is still dictated by the Moon. Modern pagans celebrate Her festival on the Vernal Equinox, usually around March 21, the first day of Spring. Christianity celebrates it on the first Sunday after the first full moon, following the spring equinox – that’s about as Pagan as one can get.

Eostre is connected with renewal and fertility. Eggs and rabbits are sacred to Her, as is the full moon, since the ancients saw in its markings the image of a rabbit or hare. She is also a dawn goddess, and may be related to the Greek Goddess of the dawn Eos. She is shown here at dawn, quickening the land, while the full moon sets behind Her.  (image by Thalia Took)

It is no coincidence that the Christian church chose this time of year to celebrate rising of Jesus from the darkness of death in the cycle of life, or that his people celebrated the passing over of death for a second chance at life in their Passover traditions.

All of it celebrates one thing and that one thing is gratitude for life and its renewal.

Spring is life renewing itself as it strives to flourish and thrive. I wish you a very Happy and Abundant Spring!

Is Your Religion Enabling Abuse?

Yesterday a student of mine asked, “What is the same between Forgiving someone for abuse, and being an Enabler of abuse: “Forgive is to: absolve, remit, cease to resent, excuse.” “Enable is to: allow, permit, excuse.” Both of them ‘Excuse’ the Behavior.”

One of the issues I see with many belief systems is not understanding the difference between forgiveness and enabling. Telling someone that they need to forgive those who are wounding them, as they are still suffering, only propagates more suffering. Forgiving someone in the midst of the abuse only enables them to continue to harm. Forgiveness is part of the healing process after the harm is no longer being inflicted, and is based in self-honor. Enabling is dishonoring of all concerned.

There is a huge difference between the two. Forgiveness is after the fact as a part if your own healing. Enabling is allowing it to continue to happen.

Genuine forgiveness only occurs after the trauma has ended and after going through the grieving process. It is sourced from self-love. Saying that you forgive someone while they continue to hurt you is simply lip-service and is based in fear and beliefs of unworthiness. It is simply sweeping the issue under the rug until it surfaces again. Fear, and the need for acceptance, propagates the cycle of abuse. Yes, many of our belief systems don’t understand what forgiveness really is and therefor are enablers of suffering. Real forgiveness only comes from deep understanding and final resolution. 

As I pondered on this further this afternoon, this is the message that came through.

“The real genuine forgiveness Dear Ones that you all seek stems from love. It is based in the understanding that all beings are worthy of love and understanding and that only those who are hurting and feeling unloved, hurt others. There really is no evil in your world, only misalignment from love. That which you call evil stems from the spiritually immature who cannot see love within themselves and cannot see it as their own true essence. As such, they really do not know what they do. Yes, from logical perspective they “should” know better and reasoning can tell them so. And yet, the delicate human mind often acts without reason as it desperately searches for the one thing it wants most, love. Ultimately that coming home to love is the reason you chose the human experience. You wanted to prove to yourselves that you could find your way home. Not to heaven after you die but to heaven within your selves. Each of you were born with it as the essence of who you are. The real challenge is to find it again, to be able to say at the end of your human experience, I found God, Spirit, Christ, Peace, Heaven, Love… within myself and shared it forward and thus I fulfilled my purpose for being. Understand Dear Ones that every being is seeking exactly the same thing. They are all facing their own individual struggles to find their loving essence, to know, feel and be love. When you come to really understand this truth and see that you are worthy of love, as you are love itself embodied as you, then forgiveness becomes an already given. So be it!”

One of the issues I see with many belief systems is not understanding the difference between forgiveness and enabling.

Telling someone that they need to forgive those who are wounding them, as they are still suffering, only propagates more suffering. Forgiving someone in the midst of the abuse only enables them to continue to harm. Forgiveness is part of the healing process after the harm is no longer being inflicted, and is based in honor, which is based in love. Enabling is dishonoring of all concerned. As long as the enabler continues to profess that the trauma is forgiven, and the aggressor continue the action, there will always be victim and perpetrator. The perceived victim needs to recognize within herself that she is worthy of love, that she is worthy of honor and that she is worthy of respect. In owning her worthiness she no longer tolerates the actions placed against her and in her self-honor she creates a space for the perpetrator to heal his own cycle of trauma. In other words, by no longer tolerating the abuse, they both get closer to peace within themselves.

This holds true for humanity as a whole.

Resistance Is Futile

There is so much happening in the world right now that sometimes it can feel a bit overwhelming. All of it depends on which side of the kaleidoscope each of us are choosing to look through. koliedescopeLooking through the wide lends, backward through to the eyepiece, there is only one limiting perspective. This limited perspective is often the viewpoint of those around the viewer and many times based on outmoded beliefs that don’t really serve anyone. Many people simply can’t see any other perspective because that one-way aligns with what they have always believed. The idea of believing something new often creates inner-chaos. This inner-chaos is what psychologists refer to as Cognitive Dissonance. Those who are open-minded enough to understand that their limiting beliefs may not be in alignment with their greatest good, have no trouble turning the kaleidoscope around and seeing the beauty of multiple perspectives.

This morning, as I spent time at the gym giving my body it’s much needed exercise, the concept of seeing resistance from multiple perspectives came through. The #Resist movement is gaining momentum for the movers and the shakers who are using this time to move humanity forward and shake up the status quo. Aka, free humanity from the controls of fear and patriarchy so that we can all live together in balance and harmony. Ultimately, that is what we all seek, whether we realize it or not.

What came through in my questioning was a multiple perspective of resistance and the energy needed to create the world we all say we desire. For those who are a follower of Abraham, this is especially juicy.

“As our Dear One Abraham teaches and many spiritual teachers understand, what you resist persists. Resistance as a form of fighting against. Againstness has never solved anything. Againstness only keeps you stuck in the very thing you resist. As long has your focus is on what you don’t want, you will get more of the same, simply because that is all that you can see. Resisting what you don’t want causes a force to constrain you and as such, resistance is futile. In your againstness and resistance you are pulled back and assimilated into the fear, the very thing you are attempting to fight against. Imagine that you are a rubber-band, pulling away from what you resist. This pulling away from, resistance, can only holdup for so long before it swings backward, into the very thing you are attempting to pull yourself from. If your focus is on what is behind you, fighting against becomes exhausting. If you are able to change your focus from what you are against, and rather resistance is futilemaintain your holding pattern, this allows you to then persist forward. Rather than fighting against, you can resist being assimilated by holding in your truth and resilience while looking forward. This holding stance gives you the ability to refuse being assimilated while not fighting against the old consciousness. Holding in neutrality than allows you to focus on what you want without being pulled back and out of shape as you lose yourself in the fear. From neutrality you are able to tap into the persistence necessary to push forward. Push forward long enough and the pulling of the past has no choice but to eventually let go and propel you forward. Persistence is powered by love and is far more powerful than resistance which is forced by fear. This isn’t to say of course that you turn blindly the other way so that you cannot see what is behind you. Looking in the rear view mirror as you progress forward is a safety check and a measure for how far you have come. Persist rather than resist is the consciousness that is necessary to create permanent forward movement. Decline to be assimilated and pulled backward, hold yourself with grace and dignity, and move forward with conscious action into the desired future that serves all life on earth, rather than the few who see themselves as being above all others. Persist, rather than resist, is the focus that you seek.”

I asked once why Yeshuah (the teacher many call Jesus) used metaphors and why the Divine Feminine speaks to me in metaphors. She replied that metaphors and stories allow human beings to understand what is being taught from the perspective of where they presently are. One of the issues with our religiosities is that many teachers are metaphoretelling people what to think based on where the teacher is, rather than creating a space for students to learn and understand based on where the student is. Some are regurgitating hand-me-down teachings, rather than asking for a new understanding based on where we presently are. Being unable to see from a new perspective, multiple perspectives, is why humanity is stuck where it is. We simply cannot move into our next phase of our collective evolution as long as we focus on the past.

The #Resist movement is working, not because of what it is resisting but because of what it is persisting. Women, and forward-thinking men, are no longer accepting what they cannot change, because they have accepted that they themselves are the change. While there are some who are “fighting against,” the core energy of the movement itself is “pushing for.”  This pushing is how we give birth and nurture a new reality based in love, rather than holding in the constraints of fear.

And yes, just in case you were wondering, I am a Star Trek fan.

Until next time be fearless, fabulous and free!


Loving The Afterbirth

Have you ever noticed that you get some of your best insights when you are working with water? Whether it’s the shower, bath, doing dishes or watering the yard, or even walking near the ocean, water seems to stimulate ideas. There is a reason that being in the flow of water stimulates being in the flow of ideas, but that’s not why I’m writing today. Today’s post is an insight I received while in the shower that I had never in a million years would have come up with on my own. It’s the idea that 2016 is the placenta.

As many of you may know, over the past few years we collectively gave birth to a new reality. It is a new reality based in love and has been a long time coming. That’s what 2012 was really all about and this new love-based reality is the return of unconditional love. It is restoring the feminine balance to our planet after thousands of years of imbalance. In pondering what has occurred on our planet the last few years and where we are heading, I’ve known for the past few months that what has been occurring is our collective disease being brought forward so that we can no longer deny what has existed just beneath the surface. This isn’t just about the race for the American presidency but the ugliness brought forward in the human race.

While I stood in the shower pondering this and the upcoming Women’s March on Inauguration day, a very interesting message about the birth of our reality came through and gave me an entirely new perspective to share with you.

“This message Dear One is regarding the birth of your new reality. All of it now is and has been put into place and is now complete as you well know. The chaos of 2016 was the afterbirth. Birth is never pretty. It’s messy and chaotic and painful, although it need not be, as resistance causes unnecessary pain. You have collectively pushed through and She is delivered. As with any newborn, this new reality is very delicate and fragile. It does and will require much vigilance and nurturing to make it strong and sustainable. It may be exhausting those of you who see its potential and battle to keep yourselves awake and aware. For many, it will keep you up because you love what you have birthed. It gets easier as your new reality gets stronger. She, for now, is a newborn infant, barely awakened and taking Her first breaths of life. The afterbirth is messy and not pretty, but very necessary. The contractions that come with the afterbirth are unpleasant and it appears to be of no value as it separates from the life it co-existed with in the womb of creation. In the afterbirth are the nutrients that give you strength and clarity. Do not throw it out placentabelieving that it has no value. It is full of nutrients that restore your resolve and renew your focus. Ingesting it for the value it gives you can multiply your efforts and restore your feelings of depletion. As a newborn baby, your new earth reality at times will seem to wear on your collective nerve as shifts between dimensions. It will bounce back and forth between asleep and awake until it becomes more collectively alert. It may be difficult for some of you to stay awake as you feel tugged by the world around to remain asleep. Eventually the collective will become more awake than asleep. It is up to each of you that have awakened to the new reality to assist the overall consciousness in their awakening. Gently love them in their own being. Remember, you are nurturing a newborn. Those of you who have birthed your own infants and cared for newborn children can see the work you have ahead of you. It is a work filled with delight as it begins to thrive with your love and nurturing. As you move more freely into this new reality you will see that, in waking up from the overdose of fear, birthing your own creations will come with greater ease and elegance. “

This newborn baby, in the evolution of humanity, is only a few minutes old and her life lays in our collective hands. What has occurred in the past few years is asking the feminine in all of us to rise. It is giving us the strength and urgency to pull ourselves out of complacency. It is asking us to step out from our quiet places, come out from under wraps, and move out from behind the woodwork. It is asking that we come together in unity and harmony for the greater good of humanity. It is asking that we become organized movements of consciousness rather than individual bright lights. We need to be seen just as boldly as fear and darkness has been. We need to love the afterbirth for the energy it provides us rather than wishing or pretending it didn’t exist. It is just as valuable to our new earth reality as the baby herself is.

Human beings are the only animals that discard the placenta that is needed to create and nurture life. It is chock full of everything we need to recover from birthing our new reality. Let’s juice it for all it has to give!



Afraid of the Unknown?

This morning as I sat working on my intentions for 2017, along with catching up on a very long “To Do” list after spending close to three weeks playing with my husband and kids, I sat and pondered why it is that moving into the unknown feels so difficult for so many.

Yes, this past year was very difficult for many people as our planet went through a huge energetic shift. That in itself could be a blog post but for now I won’t get too woo-woo on you. Many of us, including myself, lost loved-ones and as a whole we lost individuals that touched our hearts over the years at it seemed that a steam-roller took out celebrities and artists we admired. And, for many, it seemed that we lost our direction as a country when money bought out politics on all sides. The chaos and loss of this past year has many people afraid of the unknown and what the future will be. I’ve heard this concern from clients and friends alike. Sitting and pondering on this as I prepared myself to become immersed in a new year of focus, this is the message that came through.

“My Dear Sweet Children, it isn’t the unknown that you are afraid of. It is what your mind has predetermined the unknown might bring you that you are afraid of. Fear of the unknown keeps your mind preoccupied with chaos and limitation, blocking your ability to recognize your own greatness and the role you play in creating the most vibrant future for yourself and those around you. When your focus is on that which you fear, that is what you create because that is all that you can see.move mountains

It is far better to open your mind to limitless possibles and focus on what you want the future to be. Move toward that which you desire in the direction of accomplishment, rather than allowing yourselves to be paralyzed by fear or attempt to run away from the illusions you have created in your mind. They are simply that, illusions, and when enough of you focus on the illusion of fear, that is what you co-create.

You are always inter-creating and it is up to each of you to focus on what you want rather than what you fear. When enough of you focus on what you want and work toward that, that is what you will create. This is why it is so vital that those of you who are focused on creating a new reality based in love come together in oneness. Yes, one person can make a difference and together you become a force for good that forges valleys and moves mountains.”

In short, individually as well as collectively, we get what we focus on. Yes, this is the Law of Attraction in action, but it’s more than that, it’s common sense. Simply put, you cannot arrive at a destination if your focus is in another direction. That holds true for ourselves, our country and the planet as a whole. We are the creators of our reality, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for and we are the ones who will save us from ourselves. It isn’t a “me” thing, it’s a “we” thing.

Until next time, be Fearless, Fabulous and Free!


Celebrate Life!

This time of year I always find myself in reflection. 

The season from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day is my favorite time of year.  I love everything about this time of year. I love the music, lights, food, laughter, cooking, baking, movies, shopping, celebrating and simply being.

All of if lifts me up and causes me to ponder, not that I’m not always pondering, but there is something about the end of a year’s cycle that causes deeper introspection. This isn’t only for my own life and the past year, but I find myself attempting to understand why so many people, in this time of what many consider to be the most joyous time of year, become so upset over who has the right to celebrate and how it “should” be celebrated.

All of it comes from a misunderstanding of how the evolution of belief plays out in our lives every day.  

As I pondered this morning on what began thousands of years ago as a worship of the sun, to now being a worship of commercialization, this is the message that came through.

“This message for you today Dear One is on the subject of the holidays and what some may call the holy days. So many of my children find themselves in angst over this time of year. Much of this angst comes from the judgment of how to celebrate it correctly. So many of you have judgments about what is right and what is wrong, who is right and who is wrong and I want you to know that none of it is right or wrong. All of those judgments an expectations are creations of the human mind. What is, is what is. Since the human mind was evolved enough to make a connection between the air and sky and what grows on the ground, humans have celebrated the seasons.

This is the season of gratitude and giving. It is the season of reaping what you have grown and generously giving to others from the fruits of your labors. It is the season of the return of light as the sun begins to make its way into longer days. It is celebrating the light in the darkness. And it is the season of rest from your long year of toils as it gives way to the time of enlightenment, renewal and rebirth. As autumn gives way to winter you begin planning for next seasons planting in the hope of another fruitful harvest in the year to come. That is the way of the human mind. The human mind, in its planning and doing, also needs reason to celebrate. This continual cycle of creation and celebration is one that sets you apart from the rest of the sentient beings on your planet. The highs and lows, celebrations and sufferings, are all part of the human experience that each of you chose to experience. Rather than judge the celebration or how one feels in ebb and flow of life, lift them up and celebrate with them. You cannot celebrate wrong, as celebration is the vibration of life lifting itself up through you.”

Whether you celebrate Santa Clause (who interestingly enough looks and acts very much like the Christian deity), whether your focus is on the birth of the son of God or the God of the sun, whether starscelebrate the sun and its return of light, celebrate the candles that light the way or celebrate the lights on a tree in your home, whether you celebrate by any other means, religious, spiritual or secular, whether you spend quiet time alone or time with family and friends, whether you indulge in abundance or volunteer to help those less fortunate, there is no right or wrong way to celebrate. The reason for the season is the light of life itself. Celebrate life!

I wish all of you a joyous season of celebration!


Talking Trump

In the midst of taking rugs and comforters to the cleaners, making a crock-pot of turkey soup from the Thanksgiving carcass and creating a flyer for my upcoming Spirit Lift events before running off to pickup my kids from school, I received a download about Donald Trump and who he really is. Yes, I am mostly vegetarian but occasionally join my family in eating meat as part of traditional celebrations. Otherwise my husband would think I’ve lost my mind turkey-soupentirely. As long as a turkey has sacrificed its life to feed my family, I am going to make use of all of it, even the bones from which I make healthy, organic soup to last all winter.

Back to the story. Several years ago I received a message from Spirit, by whatever name or label you give non-physical inspiration, that Hillary Clinton would be a part of exposing the corruption in our country. I was also told that there would be a man with credibility that would be a part of bringing our disease out from under wraps. It had to be someone who had enough credibility whose perspective wouldn’t be seen as conspiracy theory. I wasn’t given a name, simply an impression. That person is Donald Trump.

As with so many other people, I found myself getting caught up in the political hoopla, even when I have a greater understanding of what is behind it, simply because I am human. One of my daily mantras is to ask myself, “How can I see this through the eyes of love?”

The message I received about Mr. T. this morning as I went about my work, comes from the Divine Feminine, more precisely, the Mother aspect of all that is. Below is Her message to me.

“It is time to see that my children are children of an unconditionally loving mother, not as the children of men or a judgmental male God. The misconception that children are of men still plays unconsciously in every role across the planet. This belief that children are the property, prodigy and offspring of men is the underlying cause of war and discord. Men attempting to please their fathers and their Father God holds the ego as a broken little boy. You are all in that essence, little ones still looking and hoping for Daddy’s approval. The one you call child3Trump is simply an outward expression of that little one inside who is acting out and seeking approval, while never really feeling good enough. He is an outward example of attempting to fill himself up from the outside, and never able to feel full, as his fullness depends on the love and adoration of others that money could not buy him as a child, and still cannot. He is an outward expression of what so many feel inside, particularly those men who have been unable meet the expectations of the men before them. This is where women come into their own and see the broken male through the eyes of compassion, rather than blame. He is merely a broken little boy who needs his mother to tell him everything will be alright, and that he is loved, no matter what. No amount of money can ever buy what he needs and no fame or fortune can make him feel whole. His eyes cannot separate this from genuine love. Real love is what he needs and it can only come from within himself. He is his own savior, as all of you are for yourselves. In his feeling of brokenness, it is a desire to be whole that drives him. Send him love that his heart will be made whole and he will be healed of his brokenness. As every being is healed of their suffering, the entire consciousness of your planet is lifted.”

So there you have it. This is how I see our president elect through the eyes of love. This is what Yeshuah (the man many call Jesus) meant when he said to love your enemies and pray for them. Donald Trump is playing an integral part in bringing all of our collective diseases to the surface so that they can be healed, and we can evolve into a new level of consciousness. He has no idea the role that he is playing in our collective evolution, but for those of us who can see it, we see him for who he really is.

Until next time, be fearless, fabulous and free!
