change 3.11.18


Change is here

Coming with magnificent results.

Embrace it without fear.

Allow your inner guidance

To show you the way forward

In grace and in love.

Dear One, change is upon you at this very moment, from the personal to the global aspects of your life. Honor it, embrace it and do not judge it harshly. Without change, there is no growth, and personal growth is the reason why you are here.

Every sentient being has a part to play in the change occurring upon your planet at this time. Some may be more vocal, more visible, but all have a role to play in the growth and expansion of your globe. Can you allow it to evolve with love rather than fear?

All of you came to this plane with a blueprint of what you hoped to learn, to accomplish, while embodied in this physical realm. In your natural state, prior to incarnation, you chose and understood the potential role you could play in the continued expansion of the Universe.

That being said, given free will and the conditions of being in a physical form, many of you have not acted exactly in the manner you expected you would. There is no judgment in this, for it is not perceived as a failure at all. Every experience that you have here upon this plane is considered to be important for your own personal growth. You are loved unconditionally, no matter what.

We have told you before that you come from love and will return to love. No matter what happens during your time here upon this physical plane. Do not question yourself, wondering if you have done enough, or too much, or could have done it differently. All experiences that you have had to this day have contributed to your current level of personal growth

If you wonder, if you still question what you can do to help, the answer is very simple. Come from love. Come from love in all that you do. How does that translate into your daily life when you see such angst and fear around you? Begin by sending love with every breath. Give yourself time every day to connect with your Source, your higher self, by being still with your breath, or walking mindfully with every step you take.

Dear One, your world, the expansion of the Universe, will only move forward through love. Change begins with you, with loving yourself without judgment. For how can you love another without first loving yourself? If you love yourself only when you feel your actions are acceptable, this is how you will love another also.

There are many in your world today who are creating what you perceive as chaos and turmoil. But instead of demeaning them, send them love. Understand that often for change to take place, a catalyst is required, and perhaps this is the role these souls chose to accept for their physical journey.

Can you act in love rather than re-act in anger? Can you allow the stimulus to inspire you to positive action, rather than fearful judgment and rhetoric? Can you understand that you see only a small portion of what is happening throughout the entirety of being?

Love one another, no matter what. This does not mean that you are required to condone actions which you feel are motivated by Ego or greed. Instead, move forward with grace and with love. Do not add to the lower vibrations that permeate your current world by complaining or becoming angry. Instead raise the vibrations by remaining calm and rising above the chaos and fear.

Change is here and you have an integral part to play in it. The choice is yours. How will you act or re-act to the current climate in your world?

You have such power

Lying silently within you.

You need not be loud and boisterous

To do your work.

Join the many

Who are quietly raising the vibration

Through loving acts.

Allow the power of love

To move this world

And all of creation forward

You, Dear One, can be the force of change

Through loving kindness

And grace.


Out with the Old

pruning feb 2018

It’s that time of year when many of us go through our closets in order to weed out all the things we no longer use. Clearing the air, making room for new things, perhaps just allowing ourselves to feel lighter and less burdened. After all, spring is around the corner and with it comes new growth and the promise of lighter days and endless possibilities.

This is the time of year that I am heavy into pruning my blueberry bushes. I started the last week of January and will be out there at least till mid-March trying to get rid of the old canes. It’s not that difficult a concept to prune. Get rid of the canes that are too tall or too close to the ground. The pickers can’t reach the blueberries on the tall canes and blueberries growing too close to the ground will affect weed control. But most of all, the canes should not overlap causing damage as they rub each other. They also need room in the center of the bush for air to circulate. They need to breath just like us.

People ask me how do I know when I’ve pruned enough. My standard reply is ‘When I hear the bushes say Ah!’ I know it sounds crazy, but I noticed it when I took a blueberry pruning class. After the instructor showed us how to prune, I could feel those bushes sigh with the new freedom of movement. I asked a few of the other students if they could feel the difference in the bushes and they just looked at me like I was crazy. What can I say? This is how I move through life, feeling empathy not only towards people but also towards other sentient beings. Because I do believe my blueberry bushes can feel.

When friends come to visit, they tell me that the bushes greet them as they come up the driveway. My response is, ‘Of course they do, they have had good home training’. And when I need a hug, I just walk out into that blueberry patch and always feel so much better.

It’s like a time warp in there. You get lost and think you’ve been out there for just an hour and realize its been at least three hours. It’s addicting. Even when we pick, it’s difficult to come in because you just have to get that one last ripe berry, or those few ripe berries over there. I have to tell my pickers that they are now ‘off the clock’ to get them to come in some mornings.

This is hard work. It’s time consuming and tiring and this time of year I usually spend my evenings on the couch with a heating pad on my back. But at the same time, it is a joy for me. Being out there helps me clear my head. I’ve been struggling lately with all that I have on my plate and how to prioritize; questioning if I have made the right decisions or if I need to make some changes. I’ve been stalling on doing some things I feel I need to do and have been feeling guilty about it.

My main goal right now is to prune as many bushes as I can before the sap begins to flow. Yet, I’ve realized that pruning is helping me to work through my stuff. I’m helping those bushes by clearing out the old canes and they are helping me by providing me a nurturing space to figure out my life. It’s the connection, the back and forth, something I’ve written about often in this blog.

I cannot tell you how lucky I feel to be a blueberry farmer. I tend those bushes with love and all my clients rave about how good the berries taste. My friends tell me that I am not only spreading love in my writing, but also through the blueberries, and I can see the truth in that.

All aspects of our lives are connected in some way. And I know that if I move through these other parts of my life one step at a time, as I do when I prune the bushes, then I’ll be okay. If I can move through the other parts of my life with the same tenderness I feel for those bushes, then I’m in balance.

I never know what each season will bring. Drought or a late frost could affect the yield and I just have to trust that all will be well. Because I can’t control the weather. I can only send loving energy and gratitude to those bushes for coming back to me every year. I tell them often, no matter what the yield is, I will always love them and be grateful for what they have given me. And they haven’t let me down yet.

The blueberries are teaching me to approach the other aspects of my life as I approach farming. The truth is that there is only so much I can control and sometimes I just have to trust my intuition and wait. Wait until I feel the time is right, rather than judging myself for not doing enough or for not doing it sooner. Life has a flow. It has a season, just like in nature. And sometimes we just have to allow it to bloom in its own time.  Thank you, my dear blueberry bushes, for sharing your wisdom with me once again.

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 a part of a Community of One

One with All That Is.

It is from this community

That you receive your support

And your lessons.

Honor it and all who are a part of it.

Dear One, you do not stand alone here on your personal journey. You never have. For you are a part of an infinite Community of One. This community is composed of all of creation, all sentient beings, who exist here in your physical realm and beyond. And it is from this community that you draw your knowledge, your support and your lessons.

It is necessary to remind you of this connection as your world appears to becoming more polarized, more judgmental and more biased. You have a role to play in this transformation, either in supporting this discourse which is occurring, or in helping to stop the downward spiral which immobilizes so many.

You, Dear One, you, chose to be here upon this physical plane at this momentous time of change and transformation. You chose to be a part of this, to be physically present, so that you could interject your influence upon the outcome of this time of transition.

Every breath, every action you take, will contribute to the forward movement of life upon this physical plane and subsequently of the collective consciousness. Do not hide from this truth. Do not allow yourself to be cowered into inaction. You have much more power than you realize and we are here to help galvanize you into rising into your own personal power.

Individual challenges allow you to grow personally. Upon reflection, many of you will acknowledge that the times which were your most trying, were also the times that encouraged you to draw upon that latent strength within and allow you to face head-on that which you first feared. The result was empowering and often surprising as you often do not recognize the depth of your connection with the power, the knowledge, of the All.

Dear One, open your hearts, open your minds, and come into every situation with curiosity and confidence that you will always be shown the solution to any conflict that presents itself. Observe and be still as you allow your intuition, that connection with the All, to access the situation and offer possible actions to resolve what troubles you most.

Understand that the Community of One has incredible power and unlimited potential, more than any individual can offer. And understand that you are a member, a contributor to this vast well of knowledge and strength that is shared across infinity. Do not doubt your involvement with this community as you are a lifetime member.

You have spent time in realms beyond this physical one you currently inhabit. And communication is different in each and every one of these realms. You have experienced communication in more ways than the physical languages you use today. And it is with these other forms of communication that you can reach others upon this physical plane who are unable to hear you with their physical receptors.

Allow the memories of these existences to slowly emerge as you see the commonality that exists between all races, all genders, all species here upon this physical plane. The Community of One was built on love. It draws its strength from the existence of love. And it communicates best through the language, the energy of love.

Send love, Dear Ones, send love to all who walk upon your sphere of existence. Send love out into the ethers to travel far and wide, encompassing all, reaching into all corners and crevices where fear hides. Send love to raise the vibration of this physical plane to better allow higher planes of existence to support you in your forward progress.

The realms are coalescing and the friction resulting from this will cause strife until an equilibrium is reached. And that equilibrium will be reached quicker if you do your part to help raise the vibrations by inculcating loving energy into every fabric of life here upon this physical plane.

You are indeed an integral part of the Community of One.

Your help is needed to support forward movement of all of creation.

Do not doubt this or yourself.

See yourself as we see you,

Capable, loving and the purveyor of strength and change.

A Divine being here by design to help with this wondrous transition.

Dear One With All of Thee.

The Leap of Faith

leap of faith

Galaxypicture .com

Can you trust yourself enough?

Can you trust the All enough?

Can you trust that you are surrounded by loving hands?

Ready to catch you if you fall?

Dear One, can you believe in yourself and in the All enough to take that leap of faith? For it is the next step on your journey. And truth be told, Dear One, you will not fall. Instead, you will rise, gently but steadily as you allow fear to fall from your shoulders. It has been the weight around your neck, holding you back from your next destination, that of self-empowerment and love.

You have been on this journey many years and many of you are tired and confused. You feel as if your life has been without purpose, when nothing is further from the truth. For you do not see yourself from our vantage point, as we cheer you on with each forward step you take. Oh, Dearest One, do not stop now when you are so close to achieving your next wondrous success on this personal journey you are taking.

Review your life and allow those moments of joy, buried under the mounds of self-criticism, to surface once again. Allow the note of a song, a glimpse of nature, a taste or a touch, to take you back to that forgotten moment of joy you experienced. There are many of them, you know. But they are lost in the chaos of self-deprecation and self-judgment.

Take a moment and remember. Allow your mind to be free and open yourself up to those times which brought you joy. Do this often as you continue your journey of remembrance of who you really are, a being of joy and love. Yes, there are wounds experienced along the way. But how can you reach out to others who are wounded, if you do not understand how it feels to be wounded yourself? Consider them badges of resilience in a world of duality and suffering.

It begins with you, Dear One, and how you view your life. Can you forgive, be grateful for the lesson and move on? Can you bathe those wounds in the nectar of love and see the light begin to shine forth through them? You cannot have compassion for others if you refuse to give it to yourself. For those in your life are but a reflection of you, a wounded soul courageous enough to continue the journey. Now supported by the knowledge learned from those experiences, stronger than ever, resilient and humbled.

You have come this far and are capable of soaring high above your greatest aspirations. Do not limit yourself in what you think is possible. For the possibilities are far grander than you can fathom. Take that leap of faith, without expectation, only with love, and see where it takes you. This physical existence is an adventure in possibilities. And yes, you have the choice of taking the path of love or the path of fear. Which do you choose?

You cannot be certain of the outcome of any step that you take. The only certainty is that it will move your forward on your journey of self-discovery. Do you have the courage to surrender and cease the old patterns of behavior which have not served you? Embrace the opportunities laid before you to help you shed the heavy cloaks of fear. For indeed, the cloaks did not protect you, they only covered the light that shines from within.

Allow the light, that brilliant light within, to shine, through your badges of resilience, through every pore of your body. Allow others to see your wounds, your vulnerabilities, and they will recognize a kindred spirit on a path similar to their own. Be at one with those who cross your path. They are there for a reason, Dear One. Love them without hesitation, as we encourage you to love yourself.

Call upon us and look for our help, our reply, in the synchronous experiences in your life. Remember that we come to you in ways to which you would be most receptive, in ways that are the least threatening to you. And many are our messengers, being the presence in your life that is needed at this very moment. See us in everyone around you. See us in the mirror reflecting back to you. Loving beings filled with light and joy.

Do not seek certainty, for it will never come. Instead, have faith that the choice you make is Divinely inspired to place you exactly where you need to be next; as a messenger, as a recipient of a message, or both. For remember that you play many roles in this life and each one is necessary for the forward movement of the All.

Acknowledge your place in this world

As a member of the community of One.

One with All, One of Love, One of Courage and Strength.

You can be certain of this.

You are never alone and you are surrounded by love.


Walking the Tightrope of Life


It is a balance, this life you lead

Between love and fear,

Between worry and pure abandon.

How do you remain centered

In the midst of chaos?

Dear One, you are pulled in many directions on this personal journey of yours. There are so many opportunities to choose fear over love or to worry needlessly about perceived failures, yours and others. How can you navigate this maze of emotions, misperceptions and challenges?

It begins with love and acceptance. It continues with healing breath and ends with gratitude; gratitude for the lesson, for the opportunity, and for the support, seen and unseen, which brought you to this end.

As you move through your day, your life, do not forget the unseen forces who travel with you wherever you go. They are with you at every turn you take, gently guiding you forward to a destination at which your magnificence will shine.

The first step is to pause and pull in the love of the Universe. Breathe in the loving calm offered to you with that cleansing breath. Turn off the recording which plays in your mind, over and over, falsely pointing out the failure, the misdeed or the cause for worry. Choose peace instead and counteract this recording with your own mantra, I choose peace.

When you reach a calmer state, review the cause of your distress and look for the lesson in it. Is it a check on how far you have come in changing an unwanted pattern from long ago? Are you looking at it objectively or from the perspective of your wounded soul? Seek out help from those who know you so well, from those who can help you pull back the blinders allowing you to see more clearly.

You are not alone on this journey and are not expected to walk this path alone. The truth is that unseen forces are helping to orchestrate the lessons you chose to learn in this lifetime. This is done by putting people in your life who will help you move forward, either by creating the tension, or by helping you work through it to the solution.

None of this is done with malice, only with love. For you are the courageous one to have come here to this physical plane to learn and share the lessons placed before you. Dear One, self-discovery requires courage and patience, with yourself and with others. For every interaction is a potential lesson for all involved, should they choose to learn it.

Can you move from a place of self-doubt or self-judgment to one of peace and gratitude? We are here to help you. Just call upon us. Why would you choose to walk this path alone when there is so much help available to you? You are worthy of this help, this unconditional love, which we offer you at all times.

Allow your life to unfold as it was meant to unfold. Understand that challenging situations are there for you to learn, to check your progress and how you might change your perception. There is no punishment, no judgment involved. The only judgment comes from you, as you continue to seek perfection from yourself or others. Dear One, if perfection were the goal, your time on this plane would be endless. For perfection is impossible in the human condition.

Your heroes, those to whom you look for inspiration, all have trials and tribulations. They all struggle. They all have set-backs. The difference is in how they perceive these challenges, in how much time they spend holding onto negative thoughts and self-judgment. It requires practice. It requires faith. It requires surrendering to the imperfections within themselves and this physical world.

You, Dear One, are exactly where you need to be at this moment. You have made immense strides on this journey to get to this point in your life. You have been the catalyst for change, for the learning of others, just by being who you really are, a Divine being on a physical journey.

Choose peace.

Accept help from those who love you, seen and unseen.

Know that your life upon this plane is of great importance

And that you have helped others on their journeys

Just by being who you really are.

One With All of Thee.


Is being vulnerable a strength

Or a weakness?

Does it require surrender

Or resistance?

Dear One, the human existence is an opportunity to live in a world of dualities, not only externally, but also internally. The complexities created by human emotion combined with the illusion of being alone make it difficult to easily describe one’s personality. Perceived strength as described by your external influences may be mis-leading.

The perception of being alone feeds the belief that the more independent one is, the more strength and power one has. Relying on others is often perceived as a weakness and a liability. This feeds the illusion of lack, that more for you means less for me. Therefore, many feel the need to acquire many possessions which then require protection. Ownership and accumulated wealth are looked upon as a beacon of success in many areas of this physical plane of existence.

When you consider all that we have taught in terms of being one with all through the web of connection, the perception of singular success is an oxymoron. For if all are connected, the success of one individual means the success of all. But the success we refer to is more intangible than acquisition of possessions or status.

Dear One, the purpose of this plane of learning is to bring your innate understanding of oneness and connection into this physical existence. By laying aside your mask of independence and invincibility, you begin to lay the foundation of combining both worlds (seen and unseen). Your true nature is one of connection. You are a single cell in a universal organism of love and knowledge. It is impossible for you to exist alone.

This is where your internal duality comes into play. You intuitively know that you are one with all. And yet, you are encouraged and often respected on this physical plane for being independent and self-reliant. Showing any vulnerability is often seen as a weakness, when in fact, it is a strength. Can you begin to understand that asking for help, working within a community, sharing individual gifts for the success of the whole is your true nature?

Perfection and self-reliance are false indicators of personal growth. Understanding your connection with all of creation better serves you in your path forward. Knowing that your unique gifts combined with the unique gifts of another allows you both to reach heights neither could reach alone. Understanding that embracing your perceived imperfections in a physical world is a step forward. For these realizations evoke humility and self-love. And how can you love another in this world if you cannot first love yourself?

Dear One, remove the mask of invincibility you wear for others. Accept your imperfections. For when you can love and accept your own vulnerabilities, you can begin to have compassion for others on their path of self-discovery.

Personal gain is an illusion. The forward path is paved with opportunities to live with a foot in both worlds; the physical existence you now experience and the non-physical existence from where you came. There is much to be gained as you begin to combine experiences from both realms.

You, Dear One, have embarked on a journey of discovery that requires walking with a foot in both worlds simultaneously. This will become more apparent to you as you continue your forward movement. Can you lay aside your self-criticism and listen to that voice connected to the All, rather than that voice which parrots the illusions of the physical world?

Open your wings and fan away the winds of dis-content that harbor in your heart at this time. Make room for the joy which is a part of your true nature. Allow your true nature to emerge; delicate strength embodied in loving embrace by the All of Existence.

You, Dear One, are a magnificent piece of the whole.

Your glow accentuates the flame of existence across realms into infinity.

Release the joy that lives within you with every breath you take.

And light up this world with your own personal spark of love.

Dear One with All of Thee.
