As we approach your election day we can see the intensifying of emotions along with the Great Awakening. So many of you have worked long and hard to help your companions in life awaken to what is happening on the planet and in assisting with the ascension process. Sadly, many remain asleep. We use the word sadly for those are the ones who may not notice the joy and abundance coming.
We have chosen this moment to come to you, however, because we wish to tell you this: your enemy is not the neighbor down the street who has posted a political sign supporting a candidate who holds a different view than you. Your enemy is not your relative or friend or classmate or workmate or neighbor etc who believes something other than what you believe. Your enemy, my friend, is the dark force of evil that seeks to divide and manipulate you and keep you living in fear. If you wish to live in a world full of light and goodness, do not fall prey to this manipulation. And do not war on any level with your loved ones and friends. This is our warning today, the beginning of the week which will change the world for good or ill.
We are here supporting you and are here to offer guidance. You have but to ask for it for we will not intrude unless invited in. Remember that the big picture is so much bigger than you can conceive and that there are so many threads of events that are coming together this week. Thousands of years of events. We tell you, this is the culmination of an age.
But that is for a later time. For now, remember who and what the enemy is. Remember the Light is FOR you, the Dark is not. The Light will support and nurture you, the Dark will try to destroy and weaken you. Take a good and independent look at the messages from your leaders to determine who is for you and who is not. Remember who you are and why you have incarnated at this time. Remember to be kind, to be gentle, to allow for differences, to keep your center, to connect to your spiritual guidance, and to stand the moral high ground. This week will be critical. Live in the Light. Love one another.
May you all be blessed for your participation in the emancipation of the world.

Every so often when it comes time to write my newsletter, I have nothing to say. Let me rephrase that: I have a lot to say, but it is all a jumble and not at all clear how to create a cohesive piece that has meaning. There is so much going on, so many thoughts, that I just don’t know where to go with it all.
I’ve been in this phase for a few months now. In fact, I never did get anything out last month. But since school has once again gone into session, I feel compelled to keep up with those great kids and write something even if it is an essay on “What I Did This Summer”!!!!!
So, “What I Did This Summer”…….
I worked. I gardened. I swam. I entertained. I cooked fresh, healthy, locally sourced meals. I napped….almost every day. I read. I listened to books on Audible. I laughed a lot. I sat and did nothing. I watched the sun go down and the stars come out. I spent endless hours talking with my husband and sharing our thoughts and plans. I searched for the Northern Lights and have yet to see them even though I know they have been around. I met lots of new people. I reconnected with old friends. I spent a lot of time just being. I enjoyed the visits with family and friends. I spent a lot of time out in nature just absorbing its beauty, its power, its unsolvable mysteries.
All in all, nothing huge to report other than I feel so refreshed and so filled. There is something about the Great Lakes that fills me in a way that no other place can. It’s a place that I recognize and know in a deep recess of my soul. There are so many places that take my breath away, but the Great Lakes is where I am most in sync with myself. This is something I never would have recognized in myself years ago. I grew up near Lake Erie, spent all of my adult years near Lake Michigan, and most of those years I yearned to live somewhere else, not realizing I was already in my “happy spot”. And once we left the Great Lakes for “Warmer Climes”, which by the way I have really loved too, there was a part of me that still yearned for the smell of the earth here, the feel of the breezes off the big lakes on my cheeks, the sight of the deer drinking from the lakes, or the eerie sound of loons calling to each other. And the hardwoods and the wildflowers here…..all heaven to me.
I could write about this all day. I would love to share with you all my thoughts about the Great Lakes and how different they are from one another. Or the wonder of crossing the Mighty Mac from the lower peninsula of Michigan to the Upper Peninsula and seeing that huge huge huge expanse of water from Lake Michigan, through the Straits of Mackinaw and down into Lake Huron. And no skyscrapers. Just nature and a few signs of dwellings and boats. And then after driving another 4 hours or so to see the huge expanse and wildness of Lake Superior which holds 10% of the world’s fresh water. Breathtaking.
We met a kayaker this summer who was kayaking all alone from Duluth, MN. (a good 6 hour car drive from here to the West), to Grand Marais, about another 3 hour drive to the east of here. Can you imagine? Kayaking all that distance alone, camping alone at night, only to do it all again the next day? We met him when he stayed across the street at the Inn, a night of luxury, of running hot water, hot meals, much needed conversation, and a day off from the rigorous paddling along the shores. This is a guy who wanted to know this area intimately, and did it. I loved his spirit and his ability to put his love of this area into achievable action.
The summer is a good time to do this as Lake Superior’s waters can be quite calm in the summer. But come fall, November especially, the storms are wild and fierce. Most people have heard the poignant melody as Gordon Lightfoot sings the ballad of the Edmund Fitzgerald that went down with all aboard off the shores of the UP on a stormy night in November. On a beautiful, calm summer day you just can’t believe it can be so nasty, but the waves on this big expanse of water can reach 30 feet in a storm.
So what did I do this summer? I just took as much of this in as I could. It was like trying to take as deep a breath as I could so that I can keep it with me as long as possible. I love this part of the world and I so hope that you too are in a spot that speaks to your soul as deeply as this place does for me. Our house is very funky, quite small, and rather inconvenient in some ways but none of that matters to me. I am so filled here, so happy here in a very quiet, profound and deep way.
From this place, then, I send you Peace. And Wholeness; Contentment, and the Joy of napping whenever you feel like it, or the thrill of a hike or bike ride along the trails whenever you would rather be out in nature. I want each of you to have what I found this summer: a place of my own where I truly belong.
God’s blessings to you…….

(Originally written for the Interior Alignment Newsletter)
Hi. My name is Diantha, like the flower Dianthus, and I love color. Always have, always will. I’ve studied it, worked with it, played with it, wondered about it, dreamed about it, and developed a business around it. My goal was to change the world through color, and although a lofty and probably unachievable goal, my vision will always be one in which all people learn the value and power of color and how it can support us and transform us as we move through our challenges.
To that end I developed a full line of color sprays which I named after my first book: Simply Color (available now at your Kindle store). The 15 Simply Color sprays were developed during the time I was doing a lot of teaching about color and I wanted something simple and easy that my students and clients could use to bring in the color they most needed. You see, the colors of the rainbow spectrum relate to our chakras, organs, glands, emotional, physical, mental and spiritual planes. When something is out of alignment, we get sick, or have issues arise in our lives. Being human beings, this happens frequently as we are here to learn, to develop our souls and to raise our consciousness.
So I learned how to use color to our advantage and have taught countless others how to do that as well. For example, the color of red relates to our ability to ground and manifest. It is extremely helpful to use when we lack energy, or want to start a business, or when we desire to manifest something. Or the color of blue relates to peace, calming and communication. When I was learning to speak up for myself, blue was the color that supported me in learning and then doing that, with grace and ease.
Each color also relates to an organ and gland. So on the physical level it can have an impact as well as emotionally, mentally or spiritually. When we have a challenge in life, we use up the color in our energy body that relates to that color and we need to replenish it. These color sprays are like liquid light, carrying the vibrational qualities of each color so that using the spray will help replenish the colors that have been diminished or lost.
I developed 15 Simply Color Sprays, 10 Simply Color Children’s Sprays, 17 Simply Feng Shui sprays, and have 3 Healing Sprays. I also make custom sprays that target an individual’s needs.
One of my favorites in the Simply Color collection is Rainbow. It is a great general spray for elevating one’s spirits and bathing the energy body in the rainbow spectrum. It smells lovely even though the formulas are not created for scent but for effectiveness.
In the healing sprays, my favorite is Angel’s Song which was originally made for a young male who was in crisis. His Grandmother contacted me and told me what was going on and the result wass this amazingly powerful but gentle spray. Opalescence is another in this series developed to bring joy, creativity and inspiration to creative endeavors. Originally made for an artist, most people who order this are using it for it’s effervescent, magical energy.
Once I created the color sprays, I also developed a full line of Feng Shui sprays. My favorite in this collection is the Wellbeing one which brings in the vibration of wholeness and wellbeing based in the core of our being. This one targets the middle gua of the 9 in the bagua, which is known as Health. And without health, we have nothing.
The sprays contain a propietary blend of essential oils, flower essences, solarized and charged water, gem elixirs and energetic infusions. Each one is infused with the essence of love because I believe that the vibration of love can elevate the consciousness of the planet to its next level of development. So perhaps my original dream of changing the world CAN come true. With many of us working towards that end, I think it will!

What do you hold in your mind?
“Your concept in the mind that things should be a certain way causes pain in the mind. The cause of distress is set concepts in the mind. The art of living is to gain this simple ability in life – just a skill: the ability to free your mind of the past, to free your mind of future fears, and to be able to play with every situation that is in front of you.” ~Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Sri Sri is saying is that whatever you hold in your mind controls your experience of life.
My wish for you this year is to rid your mind of the chatter that keeps you from fulfilling your life’s potential.
Start the new year with a clean slate while remembering the core of who you are: a brilliant, soul-seeking expression and fulfillment of the highest order. You can do this.
Make a pact to live with joy in your heart. Release your fears, your doubts and your pain, and live within the belief that you are worth the effort and time it takes to create a life in full attainment of your potential.

There are a lot of articles and books being written lately about gratitude which is a good thing. So why is it that so many people complain and gripe about their lives? I do not exclude myself from this although I am far better at taking a gripe and turning it into gratitude than I used to be.
My fabulous husband and I just got home from an evening out with a dear friend who is European by birth. Her father was in Auschwitz during WWII. She came here to the USA with $20 in her pocket, no job, and unable to speak English. From there she has worked her way up to being a multi-millionaire. Her life has been full of challenges and tragedies and things that didn’t work out. It has also been full of hard work, achievement, and financial benefits from all that hard work.
What is so cool about this lady is she never ever complains. She is always thinking of ways to help others, ways to make her life better, ways to promote others, ways to network and raise up everyone around her, including our little waitress tonight from Romania. She took the time to talk to her and gave her her cell number so she could introduce her to some kids her age so she wouldn’t be so lonely. Our friend remembers what it is like to be in a foreign country at a young age knowing no one.
She spent the whole evening talking about new plans for a new project, about her son and his plans, about how she is going to introduce to this person and that person and why she wants to make those connections. We both came home with a warm glow being with someone who is so positive, kind, generous and yes, full of gratitude.
She could just as easily be whining about why life didn’t treat her better, why things didn’t get handed to her, etc. etc. etc. But she doesn’t. I hope that I can be like her, always looking at the bright silver lining in every cloud, and exploding into rainbows of joy when things unfold. Gratitude begets gratitude begets gratitude and soon our whole lives will be brimming with joy!
Seems to me we could all use a big dose of gratitude these days when things seem so challenging. I think I will choose gratitude today over despair, worry, frustration, anger, and any other negative emotion that comes my way.
