New Birth


The hesitation you feel

The doubt, the fear

All are a part of the labor

That is necessary for the new birth

In your life, in your world.

Dear One, you are in the process of new birth for yourself, for your world and for the Universe. And with this new birth comes the preamble of preparation, much of which is new territory for many of you. What is coming, how do I prepare, what should I expect, will I be ready? All of these are questions that precede a major change in your life. And this will be a major change.

There is nothing to fear, there is no preparation necessary. For indeed, you have been preparing for this event for many years, for many lifetimes. And there is a part of you which is ecstatic that the birth is almost here. Do not fight it, for it is already in motion. Instead, breathe through it and allow it to emerge in all of its glory, with all of its potential.

You have made this birth possible with your life, with the choices made by you and by many others across realms. This is the moment that many have been anticipating for eons. And you are ready. You are prepared, despite your doubts about your own strength and connection. You will shine beyond anything ever experienced before. You have been the catalyst. You have been the womb. And you, Dear One, will reap the benefits from this wondrous event.

When you feel restless, doubtful or fearful, just remember that you have loving support at all times. For we believe in you much more than you believe in yourself. Can you cease creating the expectations that can be overwhelming while at the same time can be very limiting? For those expectations are created with the human mind. And the human mind is not able to expand enough to see the potential.

Your human mind, while essential for moving through this physical world, does not have the capacity to see outside of this physical realm. And the movement, the growth, the changes come from outside this arena. And what does the human mind do with that which it does not know? It becomes fearful, doubtful and judgmental. Does this not happen with cultures or lands, people who are foreign to you?

Once again, we ask you to come from your heart. The new birth that is ready to emerge will come easier with the help of loving kindness. The labor will be shortened with lightness of being, created with song, laughter and love. Allow the grace of your higher self to assist as you allow it to guide you through your day.

Have no expectations, for it will be more wondrous than you can imagine. Have no doubts that you are ready and able to move forward in a loving way. Have no fear of failure, for that is not possible. You have already done much more than expected and if you were to come home today, you would have done enough. But stay, Dear One, and enjoy the bounty of your labors. You have done so much, even though your human judgment continues to question your progress. You have done so much already.

Dear One, treat yourself as kindly as you would others. For without self-love, it is not possible to love others. You are a child of the Universe, cradled in the arms of infinity and loved with the heart of the All That Is.

You are ready.

Gently allow it to emerge.

A new way of being for you

And for others.

Feel the connection it brings

To all of creation.

Birthed by you

Birthed for you

And for the All That Is.





Can you navigate this world

With grace?

With so many things to do,

And the perception of

Such limited time.

Can you move forward

With mindfulness,

Being present in the moment

Appreciating the gift

Of each moment of time?

Dear One, so many of you complain of how many things you have to do in such a short period of time. You speak of your ‘task lists’ and how long they are with more items added daily. There is almost an unspoken pride in how busy you are. The art of just being has been replaced with frenetic activity and worry.

It is time to restore the balance and reassess the true priorities in your life. For the human condition causes you to move to and fro in a frenzy, sacrificing integrity and grace to just ‘get things done.’ Ego comes into play when you decide that things must be done this way and in this time frame, rather than letting life flow gently and smoothly in Universal time.

Dear One, we have mentioned the web of connection and how there are energetic fields working to move your evolution forward. You are unable to see the larger picture from your perspective and so focus only on your one piece of the mosaic. When in fact, there is a forward movement despite what you believe. The web of connection is in constant motion moving forward, pulling here, slacking there to embrace all of creation in the Universal dance of grace and love.

By focusing only on your portion of the mosaic, thinking it is the ONLY part that you play in the ascension, you become judgmental, of yourself and others. For you haven’t done enough, you haven’t done it fast enough, you haven’t done it properly. The list of recriminations goes on and on.

It is time for you to stop and breathe. Stop and take a moment to remember the steps of the Universal Dance. You know them. For they are housed within you, awaiting your physical mind to quiet so they can emerge in joyful abandon.

You have forgotten how to flow, like water, from one moment to the next. You have forgotten how each segment of your life is connected; that when one segment is out of balance, it affects all other aspects of your life. Stop, sit, breathe and reflect. The world will not end if you do not accomplish these items on your list to be completed today.

You, Dear One, are a child of the Universe, gently and completely loved by the All That Is. Can you stop winding yourself tighter and tighter in the web until you are hopelessly bound and unable to do anything? Instead, begin to trust that all is happening as it should, in all aspects of your life.

Can you begin to focus solely on the task at hand and not attempt to do multiple tasks at once? Can you allow the gifts of abundance to naturally flow in your direction by being open to the help and guidance that is always there for you? Can you sit for a moment and breathe, trusting that you are not alone in this physical adventure of human existence?

The point of this life is to achieve personal growth through awakening to your true self, to the connection you have with all of creation. Remember the steps to the Universal dance and take a moment to allow your spirit, your soul, to flow in that universal stream of music and love.

When your life seems not to be working at all, it is time to stop and begin again. But not before you take a moment for gratitude, for honoring yourself for how far you have already come. You have made it this far, Dear One, and you have much further to go. Your glow increases every day as you begin to move forward in grace.

Acknowledge the connection you have to the All. And call for help when needed. Remember that no matter how you define success, you are awakening in the most perfect way. You are a child of the Universe. Play with that. Dance and pause when necessary to replenish yourself.

You are not an automaton.

You are a divine being in a physical body.

This segment of your journey is temporary

And yet will provide you

With much knowledge and personal growth.

Trust, in yourself

And in the perfect flow of the All of Creation.

You are a part of this.

For you are indeed

One With All of Thee.




How do you get through the trials of life?

How do you place one foot ahead of the other

And take another step forward?

How do you trust that it is actually a step forward

And not a step backward?

By having faith in yourself

And in your connection to the All.

Dear One, life on this physical plane can be very challenging. That is why this is a more powerful learning ground than most other possibilities. The physical body is fragile, though very functional. Human emotions come into play and you must acknowledge them without always acting upon them. And the mere act of being incarnated in a physical body gives the illusion of being alone. This is a challenge for the very best of you.

You have been told by many, including us, that meditation helps ease the weight of your perceived expectations of yourself and others. And yet, even in meditation, there is self-judgment for not being able to quiet the mind, as you feel you must during this practice. You feel pulled in so many directions with multiple tasks to do with limited time and resources. How do you move forward in grace and faith?

Dear One, the first step is to temper the self-expectations of your life needing to follow a certain path. Setting personal goals is a good practice, but those goals often do not include the energetic input from others. This illusion of being alone causes you to think that reaching your goals is determined only by your input and affects only you. When in reality, the web of connection sends and receives energies constantly across realms.

Can you, instead, move forward with faith that the result of your efforts is in perfect harmony with the All? Not reaching your personal goal does not define failure, for you have continued with forward movement. It could instead have allowed time for you to reassess, to reach out or connect with others. Or it may have provided a powerful lesson for you or for another.

You are in constant touch with many others, even though your physical body may appear geographically isolated. For this reason, you are affected by and also affect others in ways not within your conscious awareness. The result of your efforts may have placed you in exactly the perfect position to take your next step.

And when you take that next step, can you take it in faith and in gratitude? Can you understand that much of that self-judgment is only Ego ready to pounce and instill fear of failure within your psyche?

Dear One, can you allow yourself to flow from one task to another with the same ease that you move from one breath to another? Can you flow like water through your day, with a gentleness, filling the void which requires your energies at this very moment of time? Each moment may be different, have different needs for your presence, but can be reached with a fluid motion, with the grace of the flow of water. No rush, no judgment, just gentle movement forward throughout your day.

Step lightly, feel your foot connect with the ground upon which you walk. Breathe deeply and feel your connection with the air which fills your lungs. Stop and listen, pause and see what exists around you. Understand that your pause may have allowed another to take a step forward in the universal dance of being.

Dear One, take the time to bless yourself and your physical body for being able to reach this particular moment in time. Reflect upon how far you have come and trust that you will continue to move forward with gentle moves, sometimes with giant leaps, but always forward.

Release the need to have total control over your life. That is impossible because of the web of connection with the All That Is. Indeed, you have free will, always. But keep in mind the energetic vibrations which surround you at all times. If you feel that they are bringing you down, then move away from them, be it what you watch or read for entertainment or in your immediate environment with those around you.

As you continue to grow, you will become more aware of the changes of energetic vibrations around you and how you are affected by them. Allow yourself to gently flow to and fro, in between moments of action and rest. Allow this balance to be a part of your life.

You have so much to offer.

You have accomplished so much already.

And you have many more moments

Of joy and peace ahead.


Breathe deeply

Step lightly

And go forward with grace

With trust and with faith

In yourself and in the All.

Dear One With All That Is.


The Joy of Being

joy of being

Sibylle Von Olfers : The Root Children

This gift of life extended to you

Comes with much joy and love.

The challenges strengthen you

Empowering the muscles of love

To encompass all

With its strength and resolve.

Dear One, the life you live here upon this physical plane is but a gift of learning and expansion. See it not as anything but an opportunity to learn, to feel, to experience possibilities unknown across other realms. You have the opportunity to grow in a manner that is not possible anywhere else in the Universe.

The greatest lesson for you has been the misperception of being alone, as these physical bodies cause a feeling of separateness from the All. But the time is now for you to begin to understand your connectedness with the All That Is; to look beyond this physical realm into the great expansion of being, of love.

Have you contemplated what will occur when you shed your physical body at the end of your time here upon this physical plane? Who are you without this physical body? Do you still exist and where do you go? There are many beliefs among you and our intention is not to discredit any of them. For your beliefs mold your journey and direct you on your path.

We just ask you to consider what existence would be without this physical body. Can you even begin to fathom that possibility? You, Dear One, are an eternal being, with many lifetimes in many different realms, using many different tools for learning. On this physical plane, your body is but a tool for learning and nothing more.

There are many beings who have never inhabited a physical body. Many of your religions talk about this. And there is a curiosity of what a physical existence would entail. You are the adventurous one who chose the gift of incarnation into this physical realm. With all of its challenges, it also contains many joys encompassing all the physical senses.

We tell you this because the time is now for you to look beyond the physical nature of your existence. The connections you have with those in other realms are becoming stronger as you begin to spend time in meditation, in reflection and in love. For love is the tie that connects all, that empowers you and overcomes fear. Love is what enables and strengthens the connection you have with the All.

Consider the gift of this incarnation unrealized by so many souls. Understand the impermanence of this time in the physical realm and the opportunities to learn and grow. Yes, there is pain and suffering, but you have survived so much of it and have gained such strength and self-realization through it. The possibilities for growth are so much greater here than in many other planes of existence.

How are you recognized? Not through your physical frame, but by your energetic signature. You all have it and will maintain this throughout eternity. Begin your day with a tone, a single tone is all that is required. This acts as a beacon across the universe, a homing signal to tell us where you are. A vocalization of your energetic signature travels across realms as your personal song. Do this every morning upon awakening to connect with those in the seen and the unseen worlds. Consider it as the howling of the wolves bringing the pack together. For now is the time for all of us to work together to raise the vibrations here upon this physical plane.

Dear One. It is time to swing the pendulum back from where it has swung into the direction of love and connection. It is not every man for himself. That is impossible and only a product of seeing the physical body as the only nature of existence. Do not allow the human mind to enslave you. Instead, allow your heart connection to lead you forward en masse with all the others who are now awakening.

Do not diminish your growth, your strength and how far you have come. Tone your energetic signature and connect with others who do the same. You are not alone. You have never been alone and the time is now for you to consciously join hearts with others across realms.

Open your heart to the possibilities of love. Sing your song daily and connect in love to All. Give gratitude for this physical existence and reflect upon the strength you gained getting to this very moment in time.

You, Dear One, are more than you think.

You, Dear One, are stronger than you realize.

You, Dear One, are always connected in love.

Dear One With All of Thee.

You are the Change

change is you

Change begins with you

In how you view your world

In how you see yourself.

In how you love

All who cross your path.

Dear One, realize that you have the power, the strength and the resolve, to change your world from this moment on. See yourself through our eyes; one connected to the All with all the knowledge and strength of the Oneness. It lies within you. Allow it to emerge from its dormancy. Allow it to emerge with all of its passion and love, and begin to change the world.

The time is now, Dear One, for you to take that leap of faith, in yourself and in the All. The time is now for you to move forward in love. The time is now for you to recognize that flame of love which lives within you. The time is now for change and you are the instrument of Universal growth.

The experiences that you have had in your lifetime have only made you stronger. You are here today, living and breathing and reflecting because you know that there is something more, something more than you have been taught.

That something more is the power within you. That something more is the strength that comes with your connection to the All. That something more is the love that is yearning to emerge from within your heart.

You are one of the leaders of this change. You have been searching and the answer reflects back to you when you look in a mirror. See past that physical form as it melts away and look within at the brilliant light which is your true essence. The human form is just a vehicle for you to use for this physical lifetime. And it serves you well. It has been designed especially for you to give you the experiences required on your journey.

And now you have reached a place where you can begin to change your life, your world. You are not alone in this, Dear One. You are surrounded by many loving beings who are guiding you forward. You are joined by many sharing this lifetime with you for the same purpose; to learn and to grow. They need not be geographically near to you to help you take that first step. Remember the energetic web of connection that joins the All.

Sit, acknowledge the presence of others, just like you, who are reaching for the stars, who are yearning for change. Sit and reach out to them from your heart and connect with them this day and every day forth. The power within you connected to the power of others who are awakening is beyond your imagination. That power resides in love and the sharing of that love across continents, across realms, throughout the Universe.

You are the element of change, Dear One. It begins with you and you are NOT alone. Take comfort in that. Take comfort in the truth that there are many others, just like you, who are beginning to reach out to you to combine the power of love.

These are not the loud ones who speak across the airwaves. These are the quiet ones who reach across the waves of love and connection. They are the silent ones, quietly doing their work as you will do. No formal recognition, no celebrity acclaim, just a loving connection with you and the All.

Do not doubt this, Dear One, for you are a part of this movement of love and connection. Reach out and feel the energies of love that resonate within and around you. This is who you truly are and you are joined by multitudes of others on the same path. Reach forward for help to those ahead of you and extend your hand behind to help bring others forward.

This journey has never been a solo journey. And now is the time to recognize the camaraderie that you have with so many others sharing their love unconditionally.

The change begins with you

And others slowly awakening

To the power of love,

To the power of connection,

To the power of being

One with All of Thee.

The Embodiment of Love

embodiment of love

Love is not intangible

For you are love

Every breath you take exudes love,

Shares love between all of creation

And Thee.

Dear One, search not for love outside of thyself, for thee is love incarnate. And thee is one with all. And all of creation is the embodiment of love. Every cell in your body, every breath that you take, all come from love. For, in truth, that is all there is.

The human existence requires an illusion of duality in order for growth. For without challenges, your time here upon this plane would be unnecessary. Your true nature, the memories seated deep within you, belong to love. And to love is where you shall return after this physical journey is complete.

The mind is necessary for existing in a physical realm. How to function, how to solve a problem, how to survive in the harsh environment often present on this physical plane. For your human form is very fragile and the mind is meant to be used to provide ways to live comfortably on this physical journey.

But the mind has caused much suffering also. It remembers harsh words, compares levels of success and abundance and creates worry about past or future events. Indeed, planning is necessary for survival and reflection can help the process of personal growth. But the mind can take you only so far and the heart is where your true essence lies. And it has been overshadowed by the activity of the mind.

Love exists in your heart and can permeate your mind if allowed. As your species has grown over the centuries here upon this plane, the mind has been able to take you only so far. And it has led you astray, away from the power of your heart. Intuition, faith and trust, the loving connection between all living beings resides within your heart.

Mind takes you to the past or the future. Heart keeps you in the present. Mind calculates, compares and criticizes. Heart offers loving kindness. Mind worries about possibilities which may never occur in the future. Heart trusts that all will unfold exactly as it should. Mind requires words. Heart is able to send love with only a breath, a touch or through an energetic exchange.

Come back to your heart when love is embodied. We do not speak of the physical heart, but of the heart center, the energetic source of love within you all. That center does exist very near the physical heart area of your body and can work through your very being. You have felt the energy there and have described it as being ‘heartbroken’ or having your ‘heart swell with joy.’

Come back to your heart and begin to use the power of love which lies there. Allow mind to receive pulses of energy from your heart to soften the hardened crust of jealousy and judgment. The answers which you seek come from your heart. Do not follow mind’s search outside of yourself. Do not accept mind’s beliefs that all are not worthy of your love. Your heart knows that all are connected in love and that the search ends within your heart.

Can you make this shift and begin to listen to your heart’s song? So many are unsatisfied and unfulfilled with what mind has told them. Try then, listening to your heart instead. Trust and release fear of the future. Forgive the past and give gratitude for the challenges which brought you to where you stand today. Dear One, you are so much stronger than you think. You have more abundance than you see. And you have more power in creating your world, your future, than you realize.

It begins with allowing love to emerge from its imprisonment by the intellect of the mind. Be once more like a child, and view your world with wonder and awe. Replace judgment with compassion, anger with gratitude and fear with love. You are ready for this. The time is now to take a chance with love.

Go within and find the truth.

All the answers you seek are there.

Focus on what your heart speaks

And allow it to guide you forward.

You have reached the turning point

And the solution is love

Only love,

Dear One with All of Thee.

My Deer Ones

IMG_0384 - Copy


Deer hunting season in North Carolina ended on January 1st and I’m always happy to see it go. Don’t get me wrong. I understand that the deer population needs to be culled and many hunters do it responsibly and with respect. It is just hard for me to hear the gunshots or a pack of hunting dogs on a scent behind my property. I cannot think of anything more terrifying to a deer that a pack of dogs on its trail.

I know that some take refuge in a certain area of my land at night and I bless them in the morning when I see where they have bedded down. The truth is that I love these magnificent creatures and consider them MY deer.

These are the ones who come onto my land in the spring and leave their fawn for safekeeping as the doe go off to feed. I have come across these young, speckled fawn over the years. Once when I was quietly pruning blueberries, I almost stepped on one nestled in between the blueberry bushes.

Another fawn had a particularly challenging start to its life when my dog found it untended in the woods. I heard this scream and looked up to find a very young fawn being pulled out of the woods by my lab. No! You cannot kill Bambi!, I thought, and ran over to get my dog off of it. Separated and unharmed, the poor little fawn wobbled off down the slope to get away from this canine. I knew mom would find it and took the dog in the house.

A few weeks later, once again, I was outside working and heard that scream again. Sure enough, my dog grabbed that fawn for a second time. It was now a little older and stronger and after I separated them, it lay there panting for a few moments before it got up and calmly returned to the safety of the woods. Another close call for Bambi, but saved. I like to think my dog just wanted a playmate, but I also understand her hunting instinct and take no chances.

And yes, the story is not quite over. This fawn appeared once more a few weeks later. I noticed the mother first, grazing on the grass. Then I saw the fawn, much larger with fewer spots. It saw us too, but this time it just tossed its head and gracefully pranced out of range of the dog who found it twice before. I just laughed with the knowledge that it survived at least into its adolescent years.

They come, first one or two and then in larger groups into the blueberry patch to feed in summer. Does bring their fawns, some with twins, some accompanied by a buck. I don’t worry about it. There are enough berries for all of us. I realize that I am not the owner of this land, only the steward. And I am also not the only creature to call it home.

One summer, I watched three deer walk into the blueberry patch to feed. I went out onto the porch and whistled. All three deer came out of the patch, stood in a row with ears peaked, looking over at me. I could just hear them saying to me, ‘What? Can’t you see that we are feeding?’ I told them that I was just about to come out with the dog and thought it would be best if they left. And they did, begrudgingly. I’m sure they came back later to continue their dinner when they could do so undeterred by the ‘guard’ dog.

And so the cycle begins once more. Those who survived the hunt will return and leave their fawn for safe-keeping as they go off to feed. Later in the summer, I will see blue scat in the blueberry patch as they continue to enjoy the blueberries. Another year of living in harmony with MY deer on the farm.
