MARCH 2020: Making Miracles


“I am the miracle.” ~ Buddha

Where do miracles come from? What is happening when everything aligns and what you want materializes right before your eyes? What's happening when it doesn't? Is it a miracle or is it some unknowable force driven simply by laws of manifestation? Having the answer to these questions, learning about the law of attraction and the other laws of manifestation will only take us so far. Having knowledge is important. But what is absolutely vital is for us to setup our lifestyle so that we can explore, discover and honor the desires of our heart and soul.

"That's the thing with magic. You've got to know it's still here, all around us, or it just stays invisible to you." ~ Charles de Lint

All the manifestation in the world of material items, won't ultimately satisfy and fulfill us if we are not using the laws of manifestation to give ourselves what we really want. Many of us don't know what that is. And that's what our journey is revealing to us. But we can use the laws of manifestation for anything, including the revelation of our life's purpose and to come to know ourselves more intimately so that we actually want what we manifest. I dare say, when we were born, that this is part of the master plan!

There are things that our soul wants to create that cannot be bought or purchased at any price. They are intangibles, such as love, peace, joy, friendship, community, synchronicity, cooperation, support, creativity, affection, time and bliss. Certainly the focus on manifesting money can appear to foster these things. But the truth is that we can manifest these priceless, miracles of life without money. And in fact, trying to make these things happen through our own force of will, usually ends up in heartache and disillusionment.

Miracles are natural. When they do not occur something has gone wrong.” - Unknown

Conversely enough, when we begin to understand that we ourselves are the portal through which miracles are made manifest and the power behind our magic is our ability to reveal the Light from within, we will see all of the above magnetizing to us our heart's desire and all the resources, energy, cooperation, time, support and funds to see it so. We are the magical miracle makers. Come and join us this month, in revealing the Light of the Magician within so that you can tap into your heart of hearts!


"Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature.”  - Saint Augustine

FEBRUARY 2020: Love is Life

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ― Rumi

The overwhelming urge to take stock of ourselves at the beginning of a new calendar year can often find us casting a harsh eye upon our lives. Often we are moved to make resolutions and enact new life plans and goals that will get us the results we are looking for because we are fed up or disgusted by the way things have been. And while it is true that discontent and discomfort are great teachers, it is also important to think about how we can open up to more love, more prosperity, more peace, more respect and more personal power from a creative, empowered, energized and loving space.

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.”  ― Rumi

First of all, it is important to understand that anything outside of us cannot truly give us those things that we are seeking in a way that is whole. It is an inside job. If respect is won because we invoke fear in others, that negates the other things that we need and want such as love and peace. If peace is won as a result of denial, the cost might be our own self-respect and a decrease in personal power. Force and the use of personal willpower carries with it a great price. Love and allowing opens the energy for all of our human needs and heart's desires to cohabitate and harmonize. This is an opportunity for our inner team to learn how to play together, to balance and synthesize sometimes what appears to be conflicting needs, through our higher power.

“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.” ― Rumi

We must first bring into our field the energy of what it is that we want. If we want more love, we must be more loving... right now... not when we get a new partner... but now. The things that we do, the goals or intentions that we make, if done because we want to create love or peace or prosperity, become more of an allowing. Once the intention is made, and it is surrendered to the powers that be, in love, we step aside and get out of our own way. This is truly using the powers of creation as they are intended.This is Doing Without Doing, and engaging in the Art of Allowing.

“What you seek is seeking you.” ― Rumi

This allowing surely is not accompanied by motionlessness, but rather an acknowledgement that we are working with subtle and profound energies called love and light, and that these forces don't need our constant nagging or pleading to come into effect. After all, these are omnipotent powers that respond according to universal law. If anything appears to be arbitrary it is because there is another belief system that is over-riding it... or something that needs to be released in order to allow the new in. The laws of the universe tell us that if we ask, then we will be given. Yet my question is, Do we receive what is given? Do we notice how the universal powers are trying to deliver our desires to us?

“Knock, And He'll open the door. Vanish, And He'll make you shine like the sun. Fall, And He'll raise you to the heavens. Become nothing, And He'll turn you into everything.”  ― Rumi

As we start to think and feel more into what we would like to create from love, we find the need to focus less and less on what we do not want. This is a turning point when this begins to happen regularly. In unconditional love, there is supreme wisdom. For it is not bound by the desire for a specific result, which holds the objectivity that can help us to break out of old patterns and see new solutions, ideas and opportunities. As we allow our creations and relationships this sacred space, there is so much love, that the beloved, whatever or whoever that might be, is afforded the room to grow even potentially beyond our wildest dreams, and blossom into something we wouldn't even have known to ask for.

“A thousand half-loves must be forsaken to take one whole heart home.” ― Rumi

In love, we become fluid, like water.... and once we are set in motion... love is an eternal abiding action, like the waves of the ocean lapping the shore, even if we are apparently waiting or holding still. The river of love within continues to flow out, much like the energy that patiently coalesces within the seed, as it sprouts later for all to see that there is a period of silence, which will produce something tangible. Love was at work during the entire process, we find out after all.

“Reason is powerless in the expression of Love.” ― Rumi

Learning to love the process, the journey is what love is all about. It is not love if we are sending negativity to some aspect of ourselves, or if we have an "if/then" mentality. The universal laws do not support these hard lines. Sure, we can make things happen and it might appear that we have outrun these laws, but we end up with the unending job of controlling our lives, and instead of commanding our ship, we end up holding the bag on everything. This gives us little energy, inspiration and time for true creativity.
“Be empty of worrying.Think of who created thought!

Why do you stay in prison When the door is so wide open?” ― Rumi

As we open up to greater love and oneness, we understand that there are parts of ourselves that we have barely given a voice in our life, namely our own soul. As we begin to make conscious contact with our soul, a world of wonder awakens within us. And we are moved. For love that comes through the soul moves us to take action, even if that action is to be still and know that God is within us. Even if that action is listening, praying, and meditating. Being still and doing nothing are not the same thing. And so it is through these small silent acts that we can hear the voice within that holds the greatest wisdom and insight of all... our higher self.

“The minute I heard my first love story,I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.”  ― Rumi

It is from this space that we can begin to hear and actuate the whispers of our own soul and bring ourselves truly alive. For love and light are our animating forces, what scientists call electo-magnetic energy. The truth be told, no matter what we call these forces within, so long as we recognize that all that we experience is a dance, a flow of energy, a juxtaposition of these two, we will have the understanding that will open us to the next levels of love. If Love is a verb... what do you love? And How does love move you?

“This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.” - Rumi

JANUARY 2020: Living the Beauty Way



"The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your actions will be."  - Dali Lama

We often differentiate between "those who are on a spiritual path" and those who are not. The truth is that we are all walking this earth together and integrating the seen with the unseen worlds, learning and remembering how to be truly human, which is actually both spiritual and physical, whether we think we are on a spiritual path, or not. Challenges come to us all to integrate, either way.  It has been quite the journey for us all, whatever stage of the cycle we are experiencing. The difference here, is that when we are CONSCIOUSLY on a path of spiritual remembrance, we are actively and with intention invoking our own ability to recall things about ourselves, humanity and this creation that will unlock new vistas and unexplored, surprising aspects of our being that can unfold and create new dimensions of love and joy in our life... and allow us to evolve through the awareness of love.

"If I have to choose between the words Love and God, I will choose love; I will never forget about God, because those who know love will be bound to know God. But it is not vice versa; Those who think about God and philosophize about God may never know about love and will never know about God, either." - Osho

Those of us who have remembered and recalled more of the true nature of being human, will be asked to assist and be of service to those who are still awakening. Many lightworkers are now going to be asked to become loveworker, too. For no longer is it just about revealing light or truth to the world for the sake of anything other than to bring greater, deeper, more profound expressions of love to this planet. Yet, those of us who remember are challenged to provide support while still allowing others to experience and bring forth their own light, through the processes and experiences of their own life and the power of their inner wisdom. That is what keeps it all real and that is what brings love to the light... and heaven to earth.

"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does." - William James

Remembering our interconnectedness can't just happen when we are all getting along. Yet, it is true that we can break the circle of love and short-circuit our ability or desire to feel connected. That is very real. The way of the loveworker is to wield the Truth upon the Self, first and foremost. And first healing and holding the space for love to reveal itself within us.  Always asking, where is the love in this person, situation or experience. Where is love being blocked? How can we let more love in? Where is the love right now, without changing anything at all in this moment? This opens the way to unconditional love.

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." - Rumi

Unconditional Love, or Agape, is an actual spiritual substance. Many have only experienced it in consciousness fleetingly... but it is available freely and without question.... however, we must have the eyes to see it, the ears to hear it and the heart to channel it. Because true love is far from just being a feeling. In fact, we can truly love someone and not even like them very much or have difficulty being around them. This is a call for greater unconditional love to the self, as well as an opportunity to hollow a deeper channel for love. For we can only hold as much unconditional love for others as we can hold for ourselves! In holding space for the unloveable in others, we learn to love ourselves and vice versa.

"Every time negative beliefs come up, it is necessary to cancel them and insist on the truth." - Dr. David R. Hawkins

The new earth and the new age ushers in a time of the restoration of the soul, the magnetic feminine aspect of ourselves, that passionate synergy that unexplainably arises as a result of our appreciation of something or someone, as well as the electrical masculine which protects the sacred space. The ultimate union of love and light occurs when we remember our own divinity and we come together as kings and queens, royal servants of this creation. It is in this state of grace that we can create unimaginably, subtle, yet deeply profound inventions of love that bring magic, mystery, joy and abundance to every living thing in the universe.
This is God's journey. Let's make it a good one!

"If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive."  - Eleonora Duse

DECEMBER 2019: New Earth Rising

We have the great priviledge of being alive during the shifting of an age. Many of us remember hearing a very popular song from the 60's - it's refrain now passing out of the realm of art and entertainment into true life - for what we surely are witnessing is the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius, and its promise of peace and plenty.

“Even truth needs to be clad in new garments if it is to appeal to a new age.” - Georg Lichtenberg

Aquarius is the water bearer and is symbol is represented by a man pouring water out of a jug. Yet, Aquarius is an air element. It could be said that we are now entering a time, where our heads and our hearts will finally find greater connection and fuller expression. In a sense, this sign of the times is literally informing us that our enlightenment and our mental power is not complete without the magic of our heart and soul.

"If luck means being in the right place at the right time,…..being in the right place at the right time is actually all about being in the right state of mind."  - Richard Wiseman

We are looking at not just a shift in an astrological age, but truly a shift in consciousness. We have already been witnessing this shift. There has been an awakening of souls, some through spiritual emergency and crisis, and some through pure grace. However it comes, it is coming for anyone who can let go and get into the flow. Gary Zukav in his book, Seat of the Soul, reminds us that new multi-sensory aspects of the human condition are coming online for everyone. And it is what we choose to do with those upgrades to our ability to communicate with each other, with nature and with the Universe itself and the powers that be, that will tell the tale of our ability to create a golden age.

“To recognize one's own insanity is, of course, the arising of sanity, the beginning of healing and transcendence.”  ― Eckhart Tolle

Never before in the history of the planet has so very much of the world been able to directly communicate in the physical. This has changed everything and made things possible that would not have been possible. This rapid communication has actually affected time and has been and will continue to change the way we work with time. This has the potential to affect us in ways that we may not yet be able to comprehend. As the Mayans have been teaching us, time is to be respected and consciously worked with, including seasonal energies, cosmic and astrological forces, as well as our personal relationship with time and implications of an advanced means of relating to time.

“If you want the best the world has to offer, offer the world your best.” ― Neale Donald Walsch

The earth is changing and so are we. As more and more people become conscious of the power of intent and actively communicating with the earth, the planets, nature, animals, guides and guardians, and of course each other, we must hold the space for the wisdom of the ages, the insights and the teachings that have rolled forward through humanity and the human condition to nourish and advance us. This is our soul's emergence on the planet and in the flesh.

“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.”  ― Eckhart Tolle

There is still much to be done, and it is all a labor of love. For never before has there been so much hope for healing, enlightenment, joy, peace, abundance and love for so many. Even the possibility of the dawning of a new age has begun to have an impact on the way that many of us now see the world. For we are seeing with clearer vision, higher hopes and open hearts.  And so it is being re-membered how to walk the sacred way, the beauty way as we feel it in our bones, this New Earth Rising.

NOVEMBER 2019: Restoring the Collective Soul



The time of the individual soul's renewal and restoration is upon us. But we have come to a deeper understanding of the collective soul, because in the process of the retrieval of our own soul... we have found each other. We are finding our tribes and diving deeper into true community.

The world is moving in such a way as to perfectly align with the timing of this re-birthing of our higher, deeper selves. We now have and actually have had, the support of the cosmos for the soul and consequently the spiritual emergence of our true being. We are rapidly becoming. And like all overnight successes, these changes within us have been hard won and a long time coming!

"You think the shadow is the substance. Every moment I shape my destiny with a chisel. I am the carpenter of my soul."- Rumi

But what does the new earth look like? How will we be different? What will change? The asking of questions is perhaps one of the most prominent hallmarks of the new age. The asking of a question is both masculine and feminine - perfectly balance if asked correctly and with true openness and humility. Once you start asking questions, you have truly begun to engage in the creation of your life through the power of your freed will. 

Honest inquiry is the first step to wholeness, with its infusion of innocence and wonder, putting a crack of light into our linear thought patterns, "know it all" boxed in approach, or just plain arrogance and ignorance. Questions are the key to the release of the stranglehold of the ego.

"Why am I seeking? I am the same as he. His essence speaks through me. I have been looking for myself. What you seek is seeking you." - Rumi

So now that you have truly begun an open inquiry, the call is to start listening, smelling and seeing... not just with the five senses, but with your spiritual senses, your intuition, your third eye and your deep insight. It is time to engage with the world through your multi-sensory self and activate the parts of you that can apprehend the hidden, magical inner workings of your own soul and the universe. 

Let the physical world begin a new kind of conversation with you. It is far more alive and responsive than you may truly realize, bridging both the spiritual/metaphysical and the physical worlds.  And when it begins to speak back to you, as you ask your questions, in ways that maybe only you can understand, you will be in awe of this living cosmos, as we realize that all things contain a spiritual essence.

"We are each others' search for what's between our mirrors. He is like a man using a candle to look for the sun." - Rumi

Soon after this type of communication is engaged, you may find yourself struggling with your thoughts and mental powers and wondering where "what you think" fits into this new mode and way of being. While there is no doubt that spiritual message can come through your mind and your thoughts, the practice of listening through all the spiritual senses relieves your mind of its former burden of being your sole informant (no pun intended). 

Your mind can now become in service to your soul, instead of the other way around. Prove it to yourself how beautiful it is to live as your soul. Let your soul come home. Give your soul, your spiritual senses, other intelligences and divine will a chance to inform your life.

"God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites so that you will have two wings to fly, not one." - Rumi

Once you live in the magic, you won't want to go back to linear life. Once the joy, the beauty and the bounty of this universe is more fully revealed to you, you won't be able to unsee what you have seen. The time is here to let time work for us. We will no longer be working for time. 

As we come to deeper and more profound revelations about who and what we truly are the soul comes alive we come into the center of our being where time and space are encapsulated by our soul. This places us in 5th dimensional consciousness. It makes us live! And as the soul comes alive, the Spirit is made flesh... and as the Spirit is made flesh... Heaven is upon the earth....

And when Heaven is upon the earth...there is true Love.

"Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness." - Rumii

OCTOBER 2019: Ascending & Grounding


"Those who choose their destiny will be the heroes, the pioneers, the midwives and the mothers of the future." - Alberto Villoldo

Spiritual emergence is  the process by which we are coming home to our true nature. Some of us can feel the new earth values coming alive in our hearts. This is ascension with feet on  the ground. Humanity as a whole stands at the brink of  the momentous realization that heaven on earth may be possible, even as we realize that we still have work to do. We are also coming to realize what that is and how it looks, not as innocent children, but as breathing, living, maturing human beings who understand the potential and power of this creation.

As that power is realized, and our esteem and knowledge of self grows, not only do we learn about ourselves, we learn about the of everyone and everything. We see and experience the interconnectedness of all that is, all the time. We read energy and we see the shape of all things in the spirit. And we know that we have the power in our own hands and hearts and minds to get back into the garden.

"The new myths, the stories that we will teach our children and endow them with the will to live epic lives, must be forged, lived and told by us."- Alberto Villoldo

Most of us have a sense, even if we have never truly experienced it or only in fleeting moments, the power of the potential of this creation and that a very intrinsic part of this is the re-unification of the Creator. We have a longing for true community, but we have forgotten how to be with our tribe. To many, getting along with others without a tremendous amount of negativity and hurtfulness being present has been something only wished for, but never fully realized. But that was before so many people had shifted into the return back to the garden. The garden is quite simply the consciousness that believes and can clearly hold the vision that paradise can be restored to the earth. And that means that the potential for everything on this planet to live and grow in harmony has never been more possible.

We have an inkling of what this earth can evolve into, if we will stop for a moment and truly assess the situation outside of our own wounds and the trauma and drama that most of us have endured on this journey to build the world into the state that it is now. Some who can only see, yet, in segments may have quite a different view and find it not so easy to be hopeful. But those of us who can see and who know the power of our own mind and intentions, and this is important... also know that this universe is unfolding according to a divine plan... and this is even more important... that the intelligence that created this universe is part of us and we are a part of it... then everything is by our own design... not as mere individuals, but as emerging souls who represent the body of God, who have come here to claim our free will to create paradise and come into the perfection of our wholeness.

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”  ― Steve Jobs

It is in our coming together and opening up to the magnetizing force of Love that we can cross the abyss of our own fears and realize that heaven on earth can begin to manifest for us right here and now. We flow between being of service to ourselves, being of service to others and then eventually when our soul stalkings bring us to the altar of our hearts and what we truly love in our unique expression, we find that what we love serves the world and our joy is the worlds joy and what heals us, heals each other. It is in this space that we come to understand the power of our individuality and our own soul.

It is important to approach ourselves holistically, and especially since time is compressing due to our ability to communicate. The energy of time is much denser and can now be used as the tool it was intended to be like never before. While it is true that clock time and the apparent limitations that it can impose seems limiting, time has given us the ability to determine what is truly precious and worthy of our focus, attention and devotion. So, it is here in this space that we stand with these new eyes, taking the gift of time to help us get clear on what we love... and it is through what we love that our soul emerges!

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” ― Rumi

True tribal community is where paradise is found. The memory of paradise is kept under the guardianship of our Native American Grandfathers and Grandmothers, the wisdomkeepers, who remind us that when we each know who we are, and we find our joy, then we can take our true place of honor in the community and bring glory and honor to our family, our community and to this creation. Soul's purpose expressed in beauty and creativity and joy is how we are in service to the whole, and is how we meet in tribal community. The power of ritual and ceremony in communion with our geographical tribe is what gives us the ability to be strong enough within our own ranks to truly bless the world. No longer reacting and surviving, we create our lives out of love and honor.

It is time for change, time to allow our wings to spread and to allow our soul's expression to take flight. It is in the very act of flight, our reaching out for and our movement toward what we love that draws it to us. As above, so below... Let this be...Paradise found... created. It's time to GO LIVE!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ― Margaret Mead
