November 2020 Newsletter As I write this newsletter the Blue Moon is full. Trick or Treaters are out social distancing and wearing Halloween masks. And there are lines at all the early voting locations.   Quite a busy time everywhere. But nowhere is it more busy than in the battle of light and dark forces. We all search for a Luke Skywalker type hero who will save the day as Darth Vader and his storm troopers invade the planet. But this isn’t a movie. This battle is all too real.   Yes, these ARE “interesting times”. None of us know for sure what will happen this week, but before the election happens, I wanted to come to your inbox to say have faith. Whatever happens, don’t loose your cool, your faith or your center. Stay calm and peaceful for in order to handle anything that comes our way, we must keep our center and stay filled with peace.   Whatever happens, breathe. And remember to love. The dark forces are seeking to divide us, to pit us against each other. Let’s not go there. Let us be kind. Let us allow for differences. Let us honor each other’s right to our beliefs. Let us discuss, not berate. Let us listen to each other. Let us love each other. Let us remember we are more alike than we are different. Let us remember we all want pretty much the same thing.: shelter, food, love, security, fulfillment. Let us remember where we come from and where we are going. Let us find where we are more alike than we are different. And most of all, let us value our core moral values like Truth, Compassion, Kindness, Forgiveness, Faith, Honor, Respect, and so many others.   This election will come and go. But we will still have the same friends and family. Treasure them.

November is the time for our Thanksgiving in the USA, my favorite Holiday! I love that we have a holiday just to give thanks for all we have. It is easy to overlook our blessings when we are wrapped up in the minutiae of our lives or in the big things going on around us. Take time this year to really feel the gratitude for all the good things we have in our lives.

A long time ago I read a book by Corrie Ten Boom entitled The Hiding Place. It takes place in the Netherlands during WWII and is about a family who hides Jews as they are being smuggled out of the country. They are caught and Corrie and her sister are interned at a concentration camp.

Corrie somehow smuggles a tiny Bible into their barracks and the whole group of women in the barracks are supported emotionally by the reading of it every night. The guards never come in and they never get caught which turns out to be an amazing gift to them. The reason, though, that the guards avoid their barracks is because of a terrible infestation of fleas. Do the women complain? No, they are grateful for the fleas because they give them the freedom to talk and pray and uplift one another.

Imagine being grateful for fleas. This book changed my entire concept of gratitude.

May your Thanksgiving be filled with gratitude.

How to navigate a fearful world.

It is amazing how much fear has taken over the world. This is a natural reaction to the change that is happening in the unseen world. We are shifting from 3D to 5D so everyone’s vibration is having to adjust. In this process, as we shed our old energetic selves and absorb our new energy, it can cause a reaction of fear because we feel so vulnerable. It is a time when one can feel naked, exposed, without protection. Liken this to that period of time when you step out of your shower but before you have dried off and put your clothes on. You are naked, cold, unprotected and reach for the towel first, your clothes second. Only then do most people feel “safe” or “protected” enough to venture out into the world. Most people are not comfortable being wet, cold and unclothed. Most people would not want to be see without hiding behind their clothes, their makeup, their carefully coiffed hair. Most people do not want to be seen in their nakedness and may we say we do not blame you one bit! But we assure you, you are always protected and cared for no matter what your condition.

We are noticing that your Media is part of the plan to confuse and frighten. We also notice that many of you have awoken to that reality as you simultaneously raise your vibrations. The process is much like when you actually awaken from a dream. You have been living in a dream, an unreality. But as your vibration rises, so does your awareness. Many, many of you are in the middle of this Awakening. We believe we have spoken to you before about this.

In a world that is dominated by fear everything becomes distorted and people begin to imagine strange things and lose sight of what is really true. Imaginations run wild and rumors fly. It is easy in an atmosphere of fear to plant rumors, lies, untruths, and they grow and spread wildly. People lose their sense of security and there are those among you who so enjoy spreading these untruths. They love spreading fear because they themselves are fearful and they want your company. Or they enjoy confusing the populace to further their own agenda of power and greed. Or they enjoy keeping you asleep and full of fear for it gives them an immense sense of security and power and control.

For those of you who are feeling secure and in a place of peace this is particularly threatening to those who wish to control and manipulate. The fear mongers seek to pull you into their own level of denser and darker energy. This isn’t evil as much as energy run amuck. Although there are those who have evil intentions, most of the fear mongering is merely people who have fallen into the darker, denser energies and who cannot seem to get out of them. These people have different motivations. Some really do seek a better world but most are caught up in the third dimensional goals based on greed and the notion that there is not enough of anything to go around. May we remind you this is a totally false notion. There is more than enough of everything to go around. Soon you will see this manifesting. Just wait until you see what is coming. We believe it will bring you much Joy.

It is up to those of you who are way showers , warriors of light or light workers or whatever you want to label these more conscious beings to change the trajectory of reality. It is up to you to stand strong in the Light, in Truth and in Peace. It is important because by doing so you become like a light house and all those people who are living in fear are like the ships on the wild seas and it is your Light that will guide them back to a safe harbor and back to a place of Peace and Truth. and a place of Well Being. YOU are the ones chosen to lead the way for others to follow. This is no small feat and we thank you for your service to us all.

It is extremely important for each of you to remain calm, lift your vibration, remain in the Light and stay out of fear for you are the Ones who will guide others to safety, and security. You are the Ones who will help them lift their vibrations so they will also be free from fear. Remember who you are. Remember the Source of your Light. Remember the Peace that is your God given right. Remember the Light that shines within you. Remember how far that Light can spread. Re-member. Re-member. Re-member. Awaken and Shine Your Light Brightly so that those who are still sleeping can Awaken and join us on this process of Ascension.

And beware of those who continue to speak from fear. These are not the way showers. These are the remnants of the old 3 dimensional world. They are not filled with Truth but with the desire to control you, manipulate you to their own greedy ends, and to destroy the new world that is emerging. Be discerning. Listen closely. Those who seek your well being will be positive and uplifting. Those who do not seek your well being will continue to speak from a fear based reality and try to scare you into submission.

Rise up. Take back your own sovereignty. Allow the New World to emerge and bring others to it. The time is now. The time for action is Now.

September 2018 Newsletter

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…….

How to Overcome Adversity

paint fanColor and Wellbeing March 2016

March is Color Therapy Month. It is the month in which we “color people” celebrate the wonders and powers of color. There are classes, radio broadcasts, luminary presentations, color ambassador events, and more. (For a full presentation take a look at www.aurahouse.com)

I myself am doing two radio interviews, and a live event as well as launching the long awaited Simply Color Online Course. I will also be creating a few interviews with some of the wonderful contributing authors for Simply Color for Everyday Living, my latest book, which included articles by 25 professionals as well as myself.

So there is a lot going on in the world of color this month. I hope you can avail yourself of some of the events for you will be guided to connect with some of the leading authorities in the field of color therapeutics.

Read on to see a few examples of how color can enhance your life…..

WELLBEING
The year was 1985. It was a low point in my life. I had been in the field of Interior Design for 5 years, had just won Best of Show for a showhouse room I had done for charity, our kids were well on their way towards their futures, yet my life seemed so pointless. No longer needed by our children in the way I had become used to, and doing a job that to me had become stale, I wondered where to turn next.

Then a miracle happened. I attended a seminar on color given by Carlton Wagner of the Wagner Color Research Center out in California. Back in 1985 there were not many books on healing, consciousness, or even how to use color beyond color theory. Then Mr. Wagner arrived in Chicago with his color boards and my life changed in an afternoon. He regaled us with how colors can impact one’s life and what the psychology of color could do for our clients. He had spent a career studying how color affects people and was now out in the world revealing his findings.

I was like a kid in a candy store. I got so excited that afternoon that I purchased his video (remember it was 1985!) and continued to study with him until his untimely death a few years later. But I had found color as a healing tool and was learning to use it to support my clients and their needs. It was a heady time and my life opened up.

In the early years of the 1990’s I discovered feng shui and then Aura Soma, a two color healing system from England. I studied both of them and studied energy systems such as Reiki and Healing Touch. I felt at the time as if I were all over the place but it all came down to learning about energy and how to use it for healing and transformation.
I studied various other fields such as Aura Soma, Reiki, Healing Touch and Feng Shui and learned all about energy, what it does, how to direct it, how to feel and read it etc.
Everything is energy, and color is certainly energy. Learning about each color and how it can change things for people was so exciting…and still is to me. I find color to be a gentle yet effective tool and one reason I love using it and recommending it is that it is readily available, inexpensive and highly effective.

If you want to learn how to harness this power for yourself, there is a great chart in Simply Color for Everyday Living along with so many articles on how to use color in simple everyday ways: cooking, gardening, painting a room, the arts, healing….it is a wonderful, wonderful resource. You don’t have to read it cover to cover either. Just find a chapter that appeals and read bits and pieces that resonate for you.

Here are just a few things color can help with:
• Speaking in business or other public appearances
• Being able to speak your truth
• Memory
• Making decisions
• Supporting a relationship
• Creating and maintaining boundaries
• Grounding, manifesting and increasing energy
• Peace, meditation and calming down
• Moving and transitions of all kinds
• Creating a sense of community
• Overcoming fear, addictions, or a troubled past
And much, much more.

Color is everywhere in our lives. Learning how to relate to and use it is a powerful way to take control of your life and enhance it. Enjoy the miracle and power of color and have fun in March, Color Therapy Month 2016!

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule exists in spiritual traditions that span the globe. Is it not time to put it into action so that we might all live together in peace?

 

Buddhism:  Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.

Judaism: What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow man.  That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.

Christianity: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Islam: No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.

Bahai’i Faith: Blessed is he who preferreth his brother before himself.
