Pain is a fact of being and one that permeates all of our lives to some degree. Since
the hurt we feel may be a part of the experiences that have touched us most deeply, we are
often loathe to let it go. It is frequently easier to keep our pain at our sides, where it acts as
a shield that shelters us from others and gives us an identity-that of victim-from which we
can draw bitter strength. However, pain's universality can also empower us to use our hurt
to help others heal. Since no pain is any greater or more profound than any other, what
you feel can give you the ability to help bring about the recovery of individuals whose
hurts are both similar to and vastly different from your own. You can channel your pain
into transformative and healing love that aids you in helping individuals on a one-to-one
basis and spreading a tide of curative energy throughout the world.

The capacity to heal others evolves naturally within those who are ready to disassociate
themselves from their identity as victims. In fact, the simple decision to put aside the pain
we have carried is what grants us the strength to redeem that pain through service. There
are many ways to use the hurt you feel to help others. Your pain gives you a unique
insight into the minds of people who have experienced trauma and heartache. You can
draw from the wellspring of strength that allowed you to emerge on the other side of a
painful experience and pass that strength to individuals still suffering from their wounds.
You may be able to council individuals in need by showing them the coping methods that
have helped you survive or simply by offering sympathy. A kinship can develop that
allows you to relate more closely with those you are trying to aid and comfort..

Helping others can be a restorative experience that makes your own heart grow stronger.
In channeling your pain into compassionate service and watching others successfully
recover, you may feel a sense of euphoria that leads to increased feelings of self-worth and
optimism. Your courageous decision to reach out to others can be the best way to declare
to yourself and the world that your pain didn't defeat you, and in fact it helped you heal.

The big change, many of the lightworkers were waiting on it for many years. Many books
and articles were written
about it. And then the moment is there 12-12-2012, 21-12-2012.
You just wake up the other day, and just see that nothing really changed. You still must
pay your bills, your environment still looks the same. People around you play still there
“drama” games. There is still war into the world, there is still hunger, pain, sorrow. Many
of the lightworkers were very disappointed after 21-12-2012, and in that energy we started
our new world. A new world of emptiness. Many have give up the hope and trust into the
new world, many hold on into the old world because they are afraid of the emptiness of
the new world.
With their own fear they build new walls around them selves and the old world and fall
back into the drama games.

Yes but….. Nothing is working anymore on the way I know and understand. And yes that
is oh so true. Into the new world our old ways of healing don’t work anymore, because
into the new world we live behind duality. The new world is not a world of healing, but a
world of creation. In the new world we don’t play our drama games anymore, so there is
no need for healing. Only when we make connection with people into the old world, we
can use our abilities for healing.
That is also the reason that many lightworkers stay stuck into the old world. They don’t
want to give up the drama games, they don’t want give up their emotions, they don’t want
to give up themselves and become nothing. They have give up the trust and faith into
their true self. They blame their selves and guides that they lie to them about the new
world. But who is really telling lies to them selves.

I am a lightworker. I felt into the emptiness 3 years ago, so long before the date of 2012.
From that moment I understand that the change of 2012 not happened into 1 day, but
happens into our own inner time. Many things changed in my life the last 3 years. I
divorced, I married again with the same men, and on 12-12-2012 we let go all we know and
what we had into the Netherlands and moves to Curacao. Here I started to created new
things with amigurumi crochet. In all the months when I moved to my inner world there
was still the emptiness. But since the last week it’s changing again. I notice again after 3
years of waiting my inner Indian guide, and my inner twin.
And with that I know that only into the emptiness we can created our real new world. So I
asked to all the light workers around the world. Will you jump with me into the
emptiness?. Can you let go the drama games, and the images of who you think you are?
Can you stop feeding the old world, and start to crated with me a real new world.

I know that many want to know who they are and what they are.. They know they are not
comfortable or feel a relation of the Norm religious paradigm and for long time many just
dont know what they believe and in this effect who they think they are. some feel they
may be of a path that too many think is negative as with Pagan and Wiccan so they are
leary to study and read to find more out about it.They just are not really sure but want to
know and in this helps give them guidance in their life of understanding what they feel..

It is hard to get many here in first place to see for themselves due to peer pressure of
criticism or being mocked. and this could lead into confidence and needing to stand up for
yourself and make your place on this Earth no matter what another believes..is
unfortunate many been mislead all their life and is hard for them to steer away.. speacially
the very ones who criticize are not suppose to judge in first place.But for a new member
who is unsure and feels lost.. First thing I can tell you.As long as your intent is good and
you are trying to progress in life you have guardians watching over you.. you may not
know who they are but they are.. and for some there are more then you know with you.

doesnt take a title to be watched over or cared for by Guides or your higher source.

I have known many to come and find they have Native aspect but also have pagan /
Wiccan interest and sometimes that may confuse..but if you think of the basis and
fundamentals in the beliefs of these paths you will find many coincide with each other..
Have to consider Pagan is a Celtic name European , Native American is American ..its just
names givin due to different cultures. started out different but have much of the same
principles many carried on pre dating anything we know as we find there were people
here 15.000 years ago in America. and bring their ideas here long ago.. different name
givin.

Best thing to do is just look for info that attracts your attention and study it.
you are not committed or pressured to be one or the other ..as long as you try and read it
will come to you.. some are natural Witches and dont even know it.. it is the basis of
nature of human kind ..something you cant convince the comformed orthodox beliefs
..they seem to take priorty in being the prime religion..sounds ego ish to me..

and never be afraid to ask questions..
we do not believe in dumb questions..
and take your time.
Much Peace

Every once in awhile you have to take a left turn from your normal routine,
many have busy schedules and have it all writ out minute by minute and do this
everyday..not realizing they are turning themselves into robots. somehow or someway
change a couple of your events of the day every other day. write down your main priorities
that cant be avoided as with kids , breakfast , ready for school..and when they come
home..or appointments. shopping. cleaning. child sports, on n on have to say many have a
hectic schedule and have crowded it with not so necessary event..

some feel they have to fill every moment of their schedule.
adding in extra and eventually overwhelming themselves.
Life has gotten to a point that we seem to be expected to keep up with hyper active
schedule. and its doing allot of humans in from this they dont even realize they are cought
up in it.. they think they are going with the flow of things..
but the flow many follow is not normal .

We live in a commercialized society and competitive and have to feel compelled to keep
up or we fall behind ..this is not true. Yes we want to do our best to our best ability but
why over whelm yourself when it can be avoided ..who cares what another might say. If
your not doing as much as they..they themselves dont realize they have fell in to that trap
as well.. I call it conformed way of life. people are living like robots.
and only you can minimize and put a stop to it.. or slow it down atleast.. you will get old
fast if it continues. It's not good on the body or the mind and will reflect on rest of family
eventually..more you do the more your kids will be expected to do as they get older and
technology and commercialism ramps up..

I worked with a printing company one time stacking mags that came from a machine
that was ran by turbines with mags coming thru machine at 60 miles an hour..8 to 12 hours
straight.. and this was over 20 years ago.. its almost expected now and is no way humans
were made for that.. didnt take me 11 months and I got out of that job..
I have had an issue with watching people and after doing research on transhumanism a
year ago..I came to realize its happening now and many dont even realize it..

Transhumanism is where they try to incorporate half human half robot.
that is the planned agenda by the corporate agenda for production and money making
purposes .. just be mindful of that.. if you begin to feel smothered ..you know you have to
slow down ..
some events can be avoided and some will just have to understand..

Much Peace

Most of us go through life a little afraid, a little nervous, a little excited. We are
like children playing hide and seek, wanting to be found, yet hoping we won’t be, biting
our nails with anticipation. We worry when opportunity approaches a little too closely,
and hide deeper in the shadows when fear overcomes us. This is no way to go through
life. People who understand the true nature of reality, those whom some traditions call
enlightened, lose all sense of fear or concern. All worry disappears. Once you understand
the way life really works—the flow of energy, information, and intelligence that directs
every moment—then you begin to see the amazing potential in that moment. Mundane
things just don’t bother you anymore. You become lighthearted and full of joy. You also
begin to encounter more and more coincidences in your life.

When you live your life with an appreciation of coincidences and their meanings, you
connect with the underlying field of infinite possibilities. This is when the magic begins.
This is a state I call synchrodestiny, in which it becomes possible to achieve the
spontaneous fulfillment of our every desire. Synchrodestiny requires gaining access to a
place deep within yourself, while at the same time awakening to the intricate dance of
coincidences out in the physical world.

When a coincidence arises, don’t ignore it. Ask yourself, What is the message here? What
is the significance of this? You don’t need to go digging for the answers. Ask the question,
and the answers will emerge. They may arrive as a sudden insight, a spontaneous creative
experience, or they may be something very different. Perhaps you will meet a person who
is somehow related to the coincidence that occurred. An encounter, a relationship, a
chance meeting, a situation, a circumstance will immediately give you a clue to its
meaning. “Oh, so that’s what it was all about!”

The key is to pay attention and inquire.

Another thing you can do to nurture coincidence is to keep a diary or journal of
coincidences in your life. After years of note-taking, I classify coincidences as tiny,
medium, whoppers, and double-whoppers. You can do this in any way that is easy for
you. For some people, it is easiest to maintain a daily journal and underline or highlight
words or phrases or names of things that show up as coincidences. Other people keep a
special coincidence diary. They start a new page for each significant coincidence, then jot
down any other connections to that event on its page.






For people who want to delve deeply into coincidence, one of the processes I recommend
is recapitulation. This is a way of putting yourself in the position of observer of your life,
and of your dreams, so that connections and themes and images and coincidences become
clearer. Because our connection to the universal soul is much more obvious when we are
dreaming, this process allows you to access a whole new level of coincidences.

When you go to bed at night, before you fall asleep, sit up for a few minutes and imagine
that you are witnessing on the screen of your consciousness everything that happened
during the day. See your day as a movie. Watch yourself waking up in the morning,
brushing your teeth, having breakfast, driving to work, conducting your business, coming
home, eating dinner—everything in your day right up to bedtime. There is no need to
analyze what you see, or evaluate, or judge... just watch the movie. See it all. You may
even notice things that did not strike you as important at the time. You may notice that the
color of the hair of the woman behind the drugstore counter was the same as your
mother’s when you were young. Or you might pay special attention to a little child who
was crying as his mother was dragging him down a supermarket aisle. It’s amazing the
things that show up in the movie of your day that you may not have consciously noted
during the day itself.

As you watch your day go by in the movie, take this opportunity to view yourself
objectively. You may find yourself doing something that you’re particularly proud of, or at
times you may notice yourself doing things that are embarrassing. Again, the goal is not to
evaluate, but to get little insights into the protagonist’s behavior—this character that is
your self.

When the recapitulation is over—which can take as little as five minutes or as long as a
half hour—say to yourself, “Everything that I’ve witnessed, this movie of a day in my life,
is now safely stored away. I can summon those images on the screen of my consciousness
but as soon as I let them go, they disappear.” The movie is over. Then, as you go to sleep,
say to yourself, “Just as I now recapitulated the day, I am giving instructions to my soul,
my spirit, my subconscious to witness my dreams.” Initially you may not notice much of a
change. But if you practice this every night for a few weeks, you will start to have a very
clear experience that the dream is the scenery, and you are the person watching it all.
When you wake up in the morning, recapitulate the night, just as you recapitulated the
day at night.

Once you are able to recall the movie of your dreams, write down some of the more
memorable scenes. Include them in your journal. Make a special note of coincidences.
Nonlocal intelligence [literally "without location," the spiritual domain, the field of
potential] provides clues in our sleep just as it does in our waking hours.
What starts to happen, then, is that gradually we see correlations, images that repeat
themselves both in dreams and in everyday reality. More coincidences provide more clues
to guide our behavior. We start to enjoy more opportunities. We have more “good luck.”
These clues point out the direction to take our lives.



Through this process of recapitulation we see recurring patterns and we start to unravel
life’s mystery.

This process is especially helpful for departing from destructive habits. Life has certain
themes that it plays out. Sometimes those themes operate to our advantage. Sometimes
they work against us, especially if we repeat the same patterns or themes, over and over,
hoping to get a different result. For example, many people who get divorced fall in love
again, but they end up in exactly the same kind of relationship they were in before. They
repeat the same trauma, relive the same anguish, and then they say, “Why does this keep
happening to me?” The process of recapitulation can help us witness these patterns, and
once we discern them, we can make more conscious choices. Journaling isn’t absolutely
necessary, but it helps bring insights and coincidences to the surface.
So remain sensitive, observe coincidences during both your daytime living and your
nighttime dreaming, and pay special attention to anything that breaks the probability
amplitude—the statistical likelihood of a space-time event. We all need to plan things to
some extent, to make assumptions about tomorrow even though we actually don’t know
what’s going to happen. Anything that upsets our plans, anything that takes us off the
trajectory we think we are on, can provide a major insight. Even the absence of events that
you expect can be clues to the intent of the universe. People who have a hard time getting
out of bed in the morning to go to a job they hate, who find it difficult to become engaged
in their professional activities, who feel emotionally “dead” after a day at the office, need
to pay attention to those feelings. These are important signals that there must be a way to
get more fulfillment out of life. Perhaps a miracle lies in the wings. You’ll never know
unless you form an intention, become sensitive to the clues from the universe, follow the
chain of coincidence, and help create the destiny you most desire.

Of course, life can be difficult, and we each have daily chores, responsibilities, and
obligations that can become overwhelming. Coincidences may come flying at you from all
directions, or they may seem to dry up entirely. How do you find your way in such a
complex world? Take five minutes every day and just sit in silence. In that time, put these
questions to your attention and heart: “Who am I? What do I want for my life? What do I
want from my life today?” Then let go, and let your stream of consciousness, your quieter
inner voice, supply the answers. Then, after five minutes, write them down. Do this every
day and you’ll be surprised at how situations, circumstances, events, and people will
orchestrate themselves around the answers. This is the beginning of synchrodestiny.

For some people, answering those questions for the first time can be difficult. Many of us
are not used to thinking in terms of our own wants and needs, and if we do, we certainly
don’t expect to fulfill them. If you haven’t defined your life’s goal for yourself, what do
you do then? It would be helpful if the universe would give us one big clue, or a giant
compass, if you will, pointing to the direction we should be taking. In fact, the compass is
there. To find it, you need only look inside yourself to discover your soul’s purest desire,
its dream for your life.

This morning i decide to go to the market to buy stuff, i rode on the bus and then this guy
with a large bible clutched under his arm sit beside me, i notice the glaze look on his eyes
and the friendly smile, i smile also , and wondering whats his opening line would be. then
he ask me with a serious voice, that if i die right now where will i go. , i answer in heaven,
i smile and held my hand to him and said im a pagan," oh ....that "he muttered, swallowing
hard, hes face likened that one whose mother had just pass away,with just one word
pagan this man world has changed, "then you are not a christian" he said with very sad
voice.,

then i begun to share my belief to this man, but he just sit there like a brick wall no
expression from his face not even a smile, so i decide to do what one does to a brick wall ,
I avoid it, and step out the bus. i also admire this guys, like him, their couraged to talk to
total strangers, their strenght and faith, but my admiration never makes me want to swim
with them in the same pool.

I remember knocking on my new neighbors to give them fruits, piece of chocolate or even
cookies. No preaching, no testimonies, just a simple smile , sometimes i just greet them a
happy morning and hop away, just a small act of kindness.

and hoping someday they may want to talk to me and id be there to listen,

and perhaps later I will be able to share my faith to them

and someday they will listen.....

hugssss

I cried a silent tear every night;

It hurt to think that I had been betrayed;

By a heartless flesh a loving soul once made.

But the anger and frustration I felt before,

Is now released so that you can’t hurt me no more,

It’s a pity that you continued to try, but I refused to die, so instead of asking why,

I prayed for you and demanded back my life!

You say you’ll never feel guilt and that you’ll never get caught in your chase,

But somehow you didn’t win this one, somehow you lost the race

Oh No, it’s so far from being over, for the game has just begun,

And you haven’t won;

Sure you sit there with that devilish smirk on your face;

Such a disgrace to the human race

Is that while you may rejoice in my misery, it doesn’t bother me,

‘Cause NOW I’m FREE, and full of energy

And enough strength to reclaim the power I once loss ~ Yeah, now I’m boss

I am here to tell women just like me,

To look at me and NEVER forget my story.





Unlike the stories you read in a book, PLEASE take a good look!

For this is what it took – for ME to see,

But don’t wait until it’s too late for you.

Take action NOW and let the story end with mine,

‘Cause if you don’t it’s just a matter of time,

Before those signs you witness becomes MORE than just signs.

Let my lesson be a lesson for all of you,

And let’s erase my name as "the woman without a face,"

Instead, take the strength I hold to keep yourselves alive,

And let me be remembered as "the woman who survived.

It is an element we are all familiar with, yet some of us don’t really explore its full
Magickal potential. Water takes up 55% – 78% of our human bodies, and 71% of the Earth
is made up of Water. 97% of the Earth’s Water is found in our Oceans… of which 98% is
yet unexplored….

The Element of Water, linked to the cardinal direction of the West, is one that Witches &
other Pagans use for Rituals and Spells linked to our emotions, our physical health,
healing (of mind, body AND spirit), cleansing & blessings.

Water is used to protect, to charge & to remove negative energies.

We may use Moonwater or Blessed Water, Sun Water or Crystal Waters.

We may even visit a Sacred Spring or Waterfall such as Chalice Well (Glastonbury) and St
Nectan’s Glen (Tintagel, Cornwall).

Some of us will collect Sea water when we visit the Beach, or Rain water from our
Gardens.

Each of the Elements has their own Spirit energy, or Elemental, that we as Witches &
Pagans can connect to and form a bond with.


Earth has the Gnomes, the Earth loving Fae beings who reside in the muddy soil & green
brush.
Air has the Sylphs, winged beings akin to Faeries who can be found in the spring breeze
or autumn winds.


Fire has the Salamanders, Lizard-like Dragons of Fire who dance in the candle flame or
roar in the centre of the BaleFire

We ourselves are born from the waters of our Mother’s womb, and our first breaths then
are taken underwater. With so much of our own bodies made up of this element, and for
women our own inner tides during our menstrual flow, it would seem that the element if
Water is a large part of our very being




Water has the Undines, the Water Nymphs or Water Spirits.
Mermaids are Undines that we all know and recognize from Myth & Legend.

Whether you Believe that Mermaids are real, the hidden guardians of the Ocean’s depths,
or that they are the etheric spiritual nymphs of Water – the elemental guides of this
emotional element…. or if you think that they are in fact the wishful thoughts of the
human race of many cultures over hundreds of years – Mermaids can still be connected to
and called upon in our Water Magick to help us to bond with this element, to understand
its properties, and to boost the Magickal energy that is provided us with.

You might make a Water Altar, decorated with seashells, Mermaid statues, Sand & ocean-
worn stones. You might keep glass spell bottles of Water from sacred springs, waterfalls
and oceans on your Altar or for use in your Magick. You might keep a Travel Ocean Altar
for use when you visit the Beach.

You might call on the Mermaids during an Immrama soul journey meditation underneath
the waves, or connect with your Inner Mermaid during a Witchy Bath filled with Seashells
and foam

And next time you’re by the Ocean, call out to the Water Elementals, the Undines & the
Merfolk and see what wonders they can show you.

as witches the Goddess charges us to exercise great care in all that we, do and say and
even think. The Threefold Law takes the notion that "what we reap, we will sow", a few
steps further..in fact, THREE steps further. For what we do "for good or for ill, shall be
returned to us threefold." In light of this fact, Witches are loath to cause any harm,
THREE-FOLD LAW OF RETURN". Basically, this is the natural law of "cause and effect.

When we come to really understand the Three-Fold Law and it's ramifications, it also
serves as a source of blessing. Witches seek to heal and to help all of Life, and when we
are working for "the good of all", it is natural that the "good" will come to us also.

The word "just" is defined as" that which is merited or deserved." With that definition in
mind, you can see why Witches believe in the exercise of "justice" over "revenge". We are
assured that what is merited by a persons actions will come to pass. We need only to ask
the God and Goddess for "justice to be done". Since this is in line with natural laws and
the promises of the Ancient Ones, we can rest in the knowledge that we are asking in a
correct manner for the situation to be taken care of. Then we can release it to them to
handle and go about our business. It is difficult sometimes, especially when our loved
ones have been hurt, to follow the principles outlined here...VERY difficult. Never the
less, that is what we are instructed to do. It is a matter of trust...trust that the God and the
Goddess will take care of it...trust that the Universal Laws apply to everyone
equally...trust in the Three-Fold Law...and trust in yourself as a Witch, strong in your
beliefs.

"The Great Mother and Father would not have their children suffer the indignities of
oppressors for their sake, for what is within the hearts of Their children is dear and true to
Them. The Ancient and Mighty Ones shall cause the balance to be made for those who
desecrate the worship of the Lord and Lady, Their Temples, or their Creations" * Lady
Galadrel1

love and light

Not all messages from the angels and Fairies realms are obvious.have you ever had
uncanny same images keep popping up in different ways. or have completly different
people mention the same thing to you over and over. those can also be the angels and
fairys pointing you in the right direction.I have been debating when to go back to school
to take more classes in the last three day I have had someone mention different classes to
me and also keep seeing different adds all over the place for online classes . so my ears are
open angels I'll be starting again soon I promise. if you pay attention the angels and
fairies are always there to help just ask then waiting and watch for there guiding hands of
love. just remember to believe it well it will happen and have good intentions.

Forest is singing

can you hear it......

a song of love is being sung

It sings across time and through space

it sing a song of life

It sing of sacred beauty

listen very carefully

and hear my heart

listen more ....

it makes you smile

for you heard that song before

its the song of youre heart

it sing with joy

at times it would make you weep

but let it flow

for it will help you see

trust me, let it speak

for it will tell you truth

and raise you up,





singing in harmony

with the symphony of creation

And every time a new voice is raised

You will be blessed with love and truth...

We are all singing, every one of us


Singing, harmonising, keeping beat

With the symphony of creation itself

It is beautiful beyond measure

it created a wake up call,

A summons from the One Soul

That is the divine beauty that we create here

It is God’s Eternal Love Song to us all

Yet it is not a song I hear with my ears,

I hear footstep.....

because sometimes

you just pass along

never had the chance

to hear the forest sing

and it is .......... beautiful.

Before our white brothers came to civilize us we had no jails. Therefore we had no
criminals. You can’t have criminals without a jail. We had no locks or keys, and so we had
no thieves. If a man was so poor that he had no horse, tipi or blanket, someone gave him
these things. We were too uncivilized to set much value on personal belongings. We
wanted to have things only in order to give them away. We had no money, and therefore a
man’s worth couldn’t be measured by it. We valued the exchange of love, so we did not
deal in fear. We had no written law, no attorney or politicians, therefore we couldn’t cheat.
We were in a really bad way before the white man came, and I don’t know how we
managed to get along for millenniums without the basic things which, we are told, are
absolutely necessary to make a current civilized society.

Humanity have fight in many wars. They started with the war of property. With that war
we all fall in the illusion that there will be not enough for everyone. After that war we
started a war about power. And we all fall into the illusion of powerless. On this moment
we are in war about beliefs. You can see it all over the words. How this war will ending is
just not writing down.

I am a Christian
I am a Muslim
I am a Catholic
I am Jewish
I am a witch
I am pagan
I am…………………………..

All over the world we are fighting with each other about our beliefs. All over the world we
are fighting with each other about which belief have the only true God. Our belief
systems are very old. They are not bad or good. But they are nothing more then
instruments who lead us to our true selves. And this is what this war is about.
Many of us are afraid of the true selves. Many are afraid to lost their identity, and are still
slave of who they think they are. People are afraid to let go their beliefs. People are afraid
to take back their own property and power. In that fear they fight with others, so in that
they have the illusion the will exist.

I am who I am. Just al what you can write down, behind the I am, is part of me. I am all
were I believe in. Every new day I make my own choice who I want to be that day. Every
new day I make the free choice how I act in it, and what energy I will feed.
I make the choice if I want be part of the war who is going on, or stay on the sideline, and
just let the energy flow by me so it can be neutral again.
Do you belief that you are victim of the system were we life in. Are you fighting the
system or can you let it be, and just changed your own beliefs?

The path of somebody who stop fighting can be very lonely in this world. But on that path
you will find more and more brother and sisters who stopped fighting the belief systems
of others. Who stopped feeding the belief systems of others with telling them they are
wrong or bad. They just let them play their own game and look to it with a smile and an
open heart. Humanity play this major part of this war out on the internet. Facebook,
twitter, forums are the new playground for this war. But it are also the playgrounds were
you can stay on the sideline, with a smile on your face, without any judgement and just be
who you wanted to be in that moment

It isn't until you come to a spiritual understanding of who you are--not necessarily a
religious feeling, but deep down, the spirit within--that you can begin to take control. --
Oprah Winfrey

How would you andwer this question: Who, or what, am I? On the deepest level we are
essentially spiritual beings. The term "spiritual" is often used interchangeably with
"religious," but they are not the same. "Religion," the root meaning of which is "to tie back
or reconnect to," has come to refer to institutions, belief systems, and rituals that attempt
to activate the spiritual, the source from which they come. Unfortunately, in the attempt to
capture the spiritual, religion freezes it in time and space, and it all too often becomes
dogmatic, thus widening the gap between the seeker and his goal. When religion loses
contact with its source, the spiritual gets reduced, distorted, or even obliterated--as witness
the slaughter of thousands around the globe in wars fought over religious beliefs.

But the spiritual is present whether we choose to cultivate it or not. It is our essence, our
innate drive toward wholeness. It is not something we acquire from the outside, but it can
be developed within each of us. We can tap into it by choosing to live consciously in our
relationships. In this process, we experience oneness and joy, an acceptance of differences,
and a deeper level of love. We experience God, a code word for this deeper, more whole
level of the self.

Think today about using your relationship to develop your spirituality. Identify a part of
yourself that is underdeveloped, perhaps your inability to express emotion, your
discomfort with touching your body, your lack of confidence in your ability to think
clearly. Consider how you can develop this aspect of your innate nature in your
relationship. Ask for your partner's help.

In quiet today, I contemplate the reality that I am essentially a spiritual being seeking
wholeness. I hold this thought: "God is that within me which seeks to become whole. Love
is the path."

I have story about weed and love to share

pretty little flower like the dandelion, I know they are weed, they are always presented
clutched in a child's dirty little hand, No one gets yelled at for picking them. Perhaps they
grow only to be used and enjoyed by children.

They are ignored or attacked, never nurtured or cared for, and yet they always bloom
profusely.

They demand no pampering or special attention to yield their bright blossoms; they pop
up in fields, in lawns, and between cracks in the sidewalk, even in the best
neighborhoods. Can you imagine trying to grow them in a garden? They'd sneak through
the boundaries and pop their sunny yellow faces up in the surrounding lawn.

They would never stay put!

I think dandelion remind us that simple kindness and beauty have deep roots that are
impossible to dislodge. Our vast number would show the world that even though we are
not fancy or pampered we are evident everywhere, even in the best neighborhoods.

We could be as easily accessible as a dandelion. We need to get out of our gardens and
jump across the boundaries that keep us where people expect to find us. We need to show
our sunny yellow faces in all the spots that need a little brightening up - the crack in the
sidewalk or the home of a friend in need.

there is a voice that doesn't use word ....LISTEN

The hardest parts of my life trickled through me one night.
Coursed through my veins and into my heart.
Causing the beat to skip rhythm and time,
Shortened my breath and tempting my soul to depart.

With a gasp and a shiver I collected my senses.
An epiphany struck me hard and deep.
This was no matter I could attend on my own,
So I summoned my Muse, aroused her from sleep.

To bait these troubles, to relinquish their throne,
I asked for help of Divine design.
To put in words and trap these tribulations
I would imprison them forever in verse and rhyme.

With astonishment in her eyes at this bold request
And seeming both humored and a little miffed,
"You realize, of course," she said with resolve.
"This falls beyond the bounds of my gift."

"Your purpose understood, there is but one thing I can do.
"I shall lift up your spirit to ascend above.
"We shall pass through my realm to where Angels dwell.
"For to imprison afflictions will take nothing less than Divine love."

So spirit to spirit we rose up through the clouds.
Passed cloud nine, ten and eleven.
Beyond clouds with numbers, or even shapes and names,
'Til we reached the realm of Angels in Heaven.

She explained my plight and they gazed in awe.
For a moment I was frightened that my request was too daring.
Until they took my hand and welcomed me there
Saying, "We wondered how thin your patience was wearing."



"Come child and sit with us a while.
"We will show you the making of a prison for your Hell.
"We've been waiting for years 'til the thought would descend
"Until your conscience could no longer contain the swell.

"In order of time you must write the words.
"One or two only to describe each grief.
"Let the ink flow out of the pen from your soul.
"Write each one down, simple and brief."

We sat all night as they guided my hand.
With fervor and fire I made my list.
They gently held my fragile soul
Until dawn's light peered into Heaven's Bliss.

Then gently they flew me back down to Earth.
The Muse now exhausted at this unyielding task,
Said, "This has been a night for all to know
"Before I leave, I have one thing to ask."

Astonished she would wonder at me this time.
I asked her what she wanted. She said, and I quote,
"It has been my place to be intangible inspiration.
"I only wondered if I could know what you wrote."

With no hesitation, a little bewildered I'll admit,
I relinquished the prison of unsavory thoughts.
Impatient to know her opinion of the result,
I paced as she read it, my stomach in knots.

Expression on her face seemed gnarled and torn.
She'd grieve a mournful sigh every few moments or so.
Then she handed me the pages and looked with empathic eyes.
"I've committed this to memory," she said "So others will know."

"It's apparent to me that I've always been at your call
"Because with so much weight bound to your small build,
"If not for my help inspiring release through words,
"It would have weakened your mind 'til your spirit it killed."

And so the list, my prison for times gone by,
Lies in the heart of my Muse's inspiration.
She uses it as fuel for others she guides,
When they are overwhelmed by their own trepidation



And so when you feel her gentle will upon you
As the verse or song or art from you flows,
When it comes from heartache, it is my prison of pain that she uses.
And so you'll recognize it, here's how it goes:

Rejection from birth, sold for dollars and cents
A half price special on unwanted babes.
The first ruin at age three, with the brother they bought
That memory never clear, just a feeling that wanes.

Age eight, a cousin, twice my age
Thought hide and go seek in the basement would do
I never realized 'til later the wreckage he caused
'Til I found out he'd molested my brother too.

This warped us both 'til brother found cocaine
Snorted to hide his own ruined soul.
From age 10 to 14 he would molest and beat
Mom and Dad were busy chasing that social goal.

Munchausen's by Proxy was Mom's best friend.
Dad worked out of state more than he was at home.
A tomboy was an embarrassment to mother back then,
So she made it plain I was invisible, outcast and alone.

Grounded for crying because it was selfish to feel,
Or at least when it was me because that would take time.
Something that interfered with the social norm
So by age 15, I decided to make the pain mine.

It was never about suicide, I just wanted to feel
Channeled other people's deaths, but didn't know what it was.
Age 16 tried counseling to see through blinded eyes.
That counselor betrayed me and told Mom and Dad, just because.

Mom took me to a doctor, said I made it all up.
Next summer, my fragile mind gone, I committed myself.
More to get away and think so I could figure things out.
Graduated at 17, I'd placed my feelings on a shelf.

Left home age 18, as soon as I could.
Ran to Junkieland so long I lost track of time.
They swapped records for CD's, found out at a store
Met ex-husband, named Krueger, used fists to keep me in line.



Age 18-20 raped by three different men
Became pregnant, didn't know if it was ex-husband's or rapist.
They wanted him aborted, except for me and my best friend.
Kicked out 'cause I was pregnant (Mom's the ultimate escapist)

Somewhere in that time, danced a while at a bar.
It was the only way that I could feel pretty.
Married best friend at 23 and he fixed my soul.
Made me realize it was life, not me, that was shitty.

Been married 17 years, three sons, all grown.
Age 39, almost died from too much heart ache.
Aortic dissection, I'm one in a million that survived.
But that dodged bullet hit Mom and Dad, our poverty was more than they could take.

And that is as simple as I can put it all down.
If I had two more lifetimes I could write it all.
But the Angels told me one specific thing to do.
"Write down as simple as you can and as small"

So I suppose this will have to do.
Maybe you'll never have to know all that I've been through.

One of the input channels for higher information is through the right cerebral
hemisphere.
- Dr. Richard Gerber, Vibrational Medicine


Meditation & Enlightenment with Quartz Crystals
by Yogi Sharanananda

"What is meditation and how does enlightenment happen?" you might ask.

According to Dr. Richard Gerber, another more powerful form of inner communication
with the Higher Self is meditation. Meditation clears the mind of conscious thought
programs to allow higher vibrational sources of information to enter into the biocomputer
for processing and analysis. In addition to allowing access to the Higher Self, the process
of meditation causes gradual changes in the subtle-energy anatomy of the human being
over a long period of time. Specifically, the chakras are slowly activated and cleared, and
the kundalini energies within the root chakra eventually make their climb up the subtle
pathways within the spinal cord to reach the crown chakra.

The real reason to meditate is to achieve enlightenment. Enlightenment might be
defined here as a more cosmic or energetic perspective of the structures of consciousness, a
feeling of unity with all lifeforms, and an understanding of the spiritual workings behind
physical reality. This higher level of perception will ultimately allow the individual to
comprehend the meaning of his or her life in relationship to others and to the universe in
general. This is what is referred to as a more cosmic perspective. Meditation may
ultimately allow humans to come into closer relationship and greater comprehension of
God the Creator.

In human beings the process of enlightenment is intimately tied to the proper
alignment and normal functioning of the major chakras of the body. When all of the major
chakras are open and active and when there is adequate etheric vitality in the body, the
human being begins to function at optimal levels of health and higher consciousness.
Meditation merely amplifies this gradual process of awakening. It accelerates the opening
of the chakras and their alignment with the physical and subtle bodies in special ways
that devotion and prayer alone do not achieve as quickly and directly.




According to Dr. Richard Gerber's Vibrational Medicine book, wherein he stated, An
individual's ability to connect with his or her Higher Self is partly a function of
specialized energy links within the crystalline network of the physical body. This
crystalline network helps to coordinate the energetic structures of the higher subtle bodies
with the consciousness of the physical personality. Gurudas brings out new and important
information that may explain certain aspects of right-hemispheric functioning and psi
abilities. Psychic abilities are mediated by special biocrystalline and energetic pathways
through which the Higher Self may interact with the consciousness of the physical
personality. One particular crystalline structure that is important to our psychic receptivity
is the pineal gland and, more specifically, the pineal calcification: a crystal that lies in the
center of the brain.

The pineal gland in esoteric literature has long been associated with the third eye. Our
early biological ancestors actually had a rudimentary but functional third eye, complete
with lens, as exists today within the tuatara (a lizard found in the southern hemisphere).
The pineal gland is associated with the phenomenon of light from a variety of different
biological and energetic perspectives. This esoteric association of the pineal with the third
eye in humans stems from the pineal gland's link with the third eye (or brow) chakra. The
pineal gland is linked to the chakra system by way of a special energetic circuit which has
developed in human beings over the course of time. The function of this specialized
energy system is uniquely involved with raising the energies of the personality toward a
higher, more spiritual level of consciousness. In addition, this same energy system is
responsible for awakening an individual's full creative and evolutionary potential.

According to the channeled material by Kevin Ryerson from his book Flower Essences
and Vibrational Healing, the kundalini activation process utilizes the crystalline circuitry
of the body, especially the pineal gland, as well as a special resonant energy reflex arc
extending from the coccygeal region to the brain stem. Although energy flow through this
pathway is primarily involved with the ascension of the kundalini, it appears that this
circuit also functions on a more day-to-day basis to allow us to communicate with our
Higher Self.

The pineal gland is a crystalline structure that receives information from the soul and
subtle bodies, particulary the astral body. The subtle bodies often act as filters for
teachings from the soul and Higher Self. From the pineal gland information travels to the
right portion of the brain. If there is need to alert the conscious mind to this higher
information, it passes through the right brain in the form of dreams. Then the left brain
analyzes it to see if the information can be grasped. This often occurs with clear dreams
that offer messages. From the left brain information travels through the neurological
system, specifically passing through two critical reflex points - the medulla oblongata and
the coccyx.




There is a constant state of resonancy along the spinal column between the medulla
oblongata and coccyx; properties of the pineal gland resonate between these two points.
Then the information travels to other parts of the body through the meridians and
crystalline structures already described. The life force of vibrational remedies activates
this entire procedure. This is a key process the soul uses to manifest karma in the physical
body.


The crystalline circuitry herein described actually contributes to the physiological basis
for the kundalini process. Additionally, this circuit permits the step-down transduction of
information from the Higher Self to various levels of awareness experienced by the
physical personality. It is most interesting that the right cerebral hemisphere, working in
concert with the pineal, acts as a primary relay point for information moving from the
Higher Self to the waking personality.

"What is the function of quartz crystals in meditation?" you might then ask.

Quartz crystals are amplifiers of the energies of consciousness. The energy taken in from

Ayurveda encourages appropriate oiling of the body parts. This needs to be practiced on
an everyday basis.

The main reason behind this is that applying and massaging oil onto the body is believed
to be a good manner of rendering nourishing and suppleness to both the muscles and the
tissues of the body.

Oiling of the body has been compared in the ancient text along with rubbing oil onto a
piece of leather - which in turn makes it firm, flexible and long lasting. Similarly, there is
the example of pouring oil over the axis of the wheel.

Merits of Oiling the Body

Some of these significant benefits are:


•Customary oiling and massage of the body tends to settle down the aggravated vatta
dosha or the air body humor. This helps to balance the humor and shield it from a wide
variety of ailments.

•It has been specified in Ayurveda text that the process of oiling the body is good for
promoting general health and tends to enhance the vital power of the physical body.

•Oiling renders relaxation to the mind and the central nervous system.

•When oiling of the body is undertaken habitually, this simple practice lays down the
foundation of a strong immune system.

Three Processes of Oiling Necessary for the Body

According to Ayurveda therapeutic science, although oil may be applied onto the
complete body for the purpose of general massage therapy, there are three particular body
parts that need to be oiled every single day. These are the scalp, ears, and soles of the feet.





Smearing the Head with Oil: When you aptly tend to apply oil onto your head (scalp and
hair), it helps the body to stay clear of many ailments, such as headaches, hair loss and
untimely graying of the hair, anxiety, and insomnia.

Ayurveda recommends this habitual oil massage on the scalp for owning as well as
maintaining healthy hair, as well as imparting natural glow to your face. Furthermore, this
process of oiling the scalp frequently is believed to be a nourishing endeavor for the
bodily senses. All the more, this leaves a soothing and calming effect onto the brain.

Oil Application on the Ears: In addition to applying oil onto the scalp, Ayurveda
recommends oil application on the ears. For this purpose, oil may be rubbed inside the ear
cavity with soft finger strokes, and massaged into the external ear and its skin
circumference.

This practice of oiling of the ears is believed to be vatta balancing. In addition, this simple
technique could save you from a number of hearing maladies.

Oil Massage of Soles of the Feet: Regular massage of the soles of the feet is another
practice that has been emphasized, owing to the virtues it bestows. This deed highly
amicable for the healthy conditions of the feet—saving them from cracking, numbness,
twitching, and stiffness.

There are more virtues that Ayurveda acknowledges. It has been believed that this practice
of oiling and regular massage of the feet tends to result in a sound and relaxed sleep. This
is also greatly favorable for maintaining as well as enhancing the eye vision.

Ayurveda Commends Oil Gargles

Gargles with oil, or filling the mouth with oil, are highly beneficial for the natural health
of the oral cavity. This aids in strengthening the jaws, imparts sweetness to the voice tone,
as well as has a cleansing effect on the tongue.

This process is suggested to be undertaken frequently as this strengthens the teeth and the
gums, saving from so many dental ailments.

Samhain is the time of year when we honor the Ancestors. It is believed that at Samhain
the veil between the apparent world and the otherworlds is thin, and that we can reach
through the veils to contact those who have gone before us. We honor the distant ancestors
of our family, our immediate relatives, and our friends who are deceased.

To prepare for this Meditation, have your cauldron or bowl ready. If you will be outdoors
have small sticks that you can light for a fire in the cauldron. If indoors, have a short pillar
candle or votive, and a fire brick to put under your Cauldron. Place paper and pen near the
cauldron.

Visualize yourself walking in a place of nature. This may be a place you already know, or
it may be somewhere you create in your mind. Be aware of the crispness of autumn, the
chill in the air, the changing colors of the leaves, the seeds that fall from dying flowers, the
pine cones and acorns underfoot. As you walk, you come to a low stone altar with a large
Cauldron sitting on it.

On the altar you see articles that you know belonged to, or are representative of, your
deceased ancestors, family members, and friends. Next to the cauldron is a small collection
of wood ready to be lit. Light the fire. (Or candle, if indoors). This is your opportunity to
contact anyone from your family, or among your friends, that you wish. Think of why you
want to contact them. Is there any unfinished business with anyone that you would like to
take care of now?

Do you wish to ask forgiveness of anyone? Is there someone you need to forgive? Do you
want to tell someone how much you love them and miss them?

Next to the cauldron you see paper and pen. Sit quietly, take your time, and write your
letters. Allow yourself to experience any emotions that arise as you do this. When you
have finished your letter or letters, burn them in the cauldron. As the flame turns them
into smoke, know that as the smoke rises it carries your message. (If indoors, be careful).
Take a few more minutes to sit quietly before the cauldron.

The cauldron represents the womb of the earth, from which we come at birth and to which
we return in death to await rebirth. Gaze into it. This is a time to receive messages. Take
your time. You may have a thought, or image, come into your mind. You may receive the
answer to a question, or be given some wise advice. You may simply have a sense of peace.




When you are ready to leave, ground yourself by placing your hands on the ground, and
crouching down. Allow any excess energy within you to flow into the earth. Leave the
circle, returning by the same path you took before. Take the blessings of the cauldron of
life and rebirth with you.

Samhain Celebration, Children Activities
Author Unknown

Samhain is the third and final harvest of the year. Although most of today's Pagans are no
longer country folks, growing crops and tending cattle or other livestock, this can still be
celebrated as a harvest, the harvest of the "thought-seeds". Also the Celtic (and Witches')
New Year, 'tis a day for remembering the past and forecasting the future.

What Does it Mean When You Are Attracted to a Particular Gemstone?


Ever wonder why you are attracted to a particular stone and not another? Being attracted to
crystals or rocks is not all that different from those times when we were drawn to certain
people who have formed our friendships and relationships. You will feel a magnetic pull
or strong desire to touch or pick up a gemstone when you see it. Keep in mind that a stone
you are drawn to may not necessarily be shiny or pretty. Although a stone may look very
plain it will not go unnoticed. Rather than its outward appearance it will be the vibration,
the crystal healing properties within the stone, that will compel you to touch it. Being
attracted to crystals and gemstones will happen more and more as you learn to be open to
receiving vibrational healing energies.


Gifting Someone with a Crystal for Healing

You may also feel a strong impulse to gift someone with a specific gemstone. Nature will
manage to deliver the right stone that is needed to heal or support you or someone else
you know in creative ways. For example, after picking up a stone that caught your
attention, it won't be until you handle it that your friend Sally will enter your thoughts.
You will intuitively know that this stone wants to belong to Sally. As if by magic you have
been recruited to deliver the healing energies that will help her. How cool is that? You
don't even have to tell Sally that you are delivering a healing to her. Simply tell Sally that
the stone made you think of her and you would like her to have it. It is the truth after all.


Sensitivity to a Stone's Energies

Discovering what a stone's talent or purpose is can often be realized by simply holding it
and feeling its energies. Sensitivity to energies or vibrations can vary from person to
person. But, all you have to really know is that if a stone feels right when you handle it,
grasp it tightly and take it home with you. If it feels icky or flat, leave it behind, it is not
for you. It is likely meant for someone else who you don't know.




What to Do if You Can't Afford a Gemstone

If you have found a gemstone for sale in a store that feels right and yet you realize that
you cannot afford it, well then you will have no choice but to leave it behind. You may not
be able to keep it but the stone itself will not be stingy with its healing properties. If it is
locked in a display case tell the sales person that you would like to inspect the stone.
Handling the stone is perhaps all you need to do. The stone will likely transfer a
vibrational healing to you while you are handling it.


No Worries!

Don't sweat it if you cannot keep a particular stone. It has often been said that a stone can
never be owned, that we are merely caregivers of stones. A stone will clear a pathway to
make its way to you if it is truly meant for you. Because many stones carry similar energies
you can try to raise or lower your personal vibration to match the energy you felt when
you held that elusive stone that you had to go home without. You can do this during your
meditation practice or quiet time. Mimicking the vibration will help another appropriate
stone to find its way to you. Happy rock collecting!

My dear friends, we love you so very much.

Happy New Year and as we like to say Happy New You! Happy New, Wonderful,
Magical, Creative, Abundant, Prosperous, Wise, Caring, Compassionate, Loving You! For
that is how we see you! This is who you really are. This is what you want to bring to the
surface this year! It is a year of loving the truth of yourself. It is a year of being authentic.
It is a year of being committed to being "real" with everyone and everything around you.

Look around your homes. What gives you joy? What brings you down? Look at your lives?
What situations uplift you? What no longer represent who you wish to be in this world?
Look at your relationships. Are you relating from a place of loving truth? Are you really
being the real you? Dear ones, if you can love all of who you are, in a given moment, you
can change the course of your entire life. If you can say, "Here I am. This is who I am now,
and I love me! I know I am God's love incarnate, whether I feel it or not. I know I have a
beautiful heart, whether or not I am choosing to bring it to the surface right now or not. I
know I have wisdom within me, whether I feel it or not," then dear ones you will start to
experience a kinder reality almost immediately. For in choosing to love the truth of your
spirit, dear ones, you focus upon it. And whatever you focus upon with love is coaxed to
the surface, nurtured, and experienced more deeply.

Look at your complaints! So many on earth truly love to complain. And so you focus your
love on your complaints and thus they are reinforced and magnified. What if, instead, you
focused on what is good, true,and beautiful with such great energy and love, for indeed it
takes less energy to focus on what is good. It simply takes a little willpower and the
willingness to shift your attention. If you aren't feeling abundant yet, look at the
abundance of resourcefulness you have used thus far to get by. Focus on what is good
within you. If you aren't feeling loving yet, focus on the fact that you at least are trying
and that in itself shows there are seeds of love attempting to sprout. If you are not feeling
healthy and well yet, focus on any little part of your previous physical vehicle that is
feeling well, or even better yet imagine what it might feel like, or did feel like, to feel
well. You have so much power within you! Your power is to focus your love on whatever
it is you wish to bring to the surface, experience, and magnify. Sunlight is needed for
seeds to sprout out of the darkened soul, and your love is needed to sprout the seeds of
power, love, and goodness within you! They exist. They are present already. Water them
with kindness to self. Shed the light of your love on what is good within you. Then stand
back and watch with wonder as these beautiful seeds begin to grow.

Happy New Year! Happy New You... or shall we say, Happy More Truthful, Authentic,
Already Beautiful You!. God Bless you! We love you so very much. -- The Angels
