Spirit Speaks - Halloween – A Spell From Shakespeare


The Witches’ Spell


Act IV, Scene 1 from Macbeth (1606) by William Shakespeare

clr gifA dark Cave. In the middle, a Caldron boiling. Thunder.
Enter the three Witches.

1 WITCH. Thrice the brinded cat hath mew’d.
2 WITCH. Thrice and once, the hedge-pig whin’d.
3 WITCH. Harpier cries:—’tis time! ’tis time!
1 WITCH. Round about the caldron go;
In the poison’d entrails throw.—
Toad, that under cold stone,
Days and nights has thirty-one;
Swelter’d venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot!
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
2 WITCH. Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg, and owlet’s wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
3 WITCH. Scale of dragon; tooth of wolf;
Witches’ mummy; maw and gulf
Of the ravin’d salt-sea shark;
Root of hemlock digg’d i the dark;
Liver of blaspheming Jew;
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Sliver’d in the moon’s eclipse;
Nose of Turk, and Tartar’s lips;
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver’d by a drab,—
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger’s chaudron,
For the ingrediants of our caldron.
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
2 WITCH. Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

Spirit Animal - Pueo (Owl) Observations


While we were on the island of Kauai recently, we had several encounters with the Hawaiian Owl or Pueo as it is called there.  Pueo is now on the endangered species list so we felt very blessed to have several or perhaps the same one, guide us down the road at night.

Pueo has several thoughts to share.

  • Flying into bright light is a good way to be blinded.  We have learned that we need to fly with the light, and let our eyes adjust gradually. That way we can truly see what is ahead of us.
  • Know where your safe place is.  We Pueo lay our eggs on the ground so that we are truly grounded.  This leaves us open to predators.  We say that you must stay grounded at this time, and that you must be aware of who wants to “own” you.  Set clear boundaries.
  • Rest whenever you can.  Resting is something that humans need to learn to do.  Instead, humans are always active and this creates stress.

Ancestors Speak - The Last Day Of The Mayan Calendar



We, your Ancestors, come to you now to speak of the use of calendars.  There have been so many calendars whose purpose is to keep time, and to create a master which all peoples must adhere to.  What happens when you try to force people to use one method of doing anything? People rebel.  That too has happened over time when different religions or governments try to force a mandate onto the people.

The Mayan Calendar was not shared with anyone outside the Mayan people.  It gives a plan for the creation of the world that humans live in.  It is also a plan of co-creation, for, as many belief systems point out, people do create their own reality.



Today, the plan that the Mayans tracked is ending according to some calculations.  Know that the Mayan calendar does not follow the calendars of today.  Instead, it follows the sun time and the cycle of equinox and solstices.  Therefore, we say to you that cycles are now overlapping.

  Earth now moves into a new creative cycle, and a new calendar.  As Ancestors, we can tell you that there is nothing to fear.  Change occurs all the time.  There is already a new calendar in existence that maps out the next era of creation.  Be conscious of all that you do, and learn to live with no harm to anyone, self included.

Angels Speak - Halleluiah


Greetings Beloveds!   As all the changes happen, the word that we Angels sing over and over is “Halleluiah”.  This word means “praise all” although it is often translated as “praise God”.   When we sing this word we are praising everything  - all the humans and animals and birds and insects and fish and plants and trees and water and dirt and air and fire and stones – all things.  This includes everything in the Universe – stars and planets and comets and gases and nebulas and space junk and sounds – everything!

We are meant to praise everything right now because it is so beautiful and so perfect!  There is perfection in the world right now.  The feminine is rising to clean the corruption and the power and the hate.  The feminine has always been about love and cleaning. 

The Earth is rising in her power, and she is cleaning the the things that no longer suit her – the polluted water ways and beaches; the abuses of her minerals and the concrete that spans her girth.

Angels Speak - The Tiredness That Over Whelms You



Beloveds, we greet you!  We tell you that the great fatigue that you are all feeling is a result of the many changes that are happening in your body, in your etherics, and on the planet.  Yes, everything is going through modifications so that the Earth and each of you will be in harmony with the newness that is happening in the next several months.

Even humans that are not in the spiritual path are feeling that a big change is coming.  Interesting to us is that you all see the change as coming, as in the future.  Really, the change is happening and on going.  Perhaps you see it as the future because humans have trouble being in the now moment.  The Ancestors that existed on the planet even a thousand years ago had more time to be in the now moment.  Everything happened less on schedule and more on flow.

The big change that is taking place is that the magnetic alignment of the Earth and of the Universe, for that matter, is changing.  This means that the magnetic alignment of the human body is also changing.  The tug of war going on in your body is what is making you tired.  You may find that you feel ill, that you are putting on weight unexplainably, or that you are losing weight without reason, or that your vision changes and becomes blurred or quite clear.  All of these symptoms plus many others are contributing to the fatigue.

The solution is to go with the flow of fatigue and rest!  Rest will help you move through this more quickly than anything else.

Rest well and stay in the light.

Spirit Animal - Black Horse In Meditation


Black Horse was trotting in to my meditation.  She has decided that now is the time to share some information.  She tossed her head and looked at me and said, “You are now ready.”

  • The new matrix of organization is being floated through the Universe.  This matrix changes the the way that energy moves and works together.
  • Some call this matrix the crystal or crystalline matrix because they need to put labels on all things.  Instead of the label, visualize the way that sunlight twinkles on water.  The light gleams and moves and provides shadows and brightness that are connected.  This is how the new structure comes into being.  The light holds connections at every intersection of returning light, or reflected light.

Spirit Animal - Leopard Has Some Things To Say


Leopard crouched in the grass, outside my meditation, and waited until I was aware of him. 

The Leopard has been a symbol of speed and cunning for our Earth Ancestors for a very, long time!  They saw his ability to blend with the grasses and shrubs as an excellent way to camouflage its whereabouts.  The Leopard, with its ability to kill quickly, was the sign of the warrior.

Leopard is coming today, however, as a messenger.  The messages are:

  • When you hear anything about spots – “spot on!” or “you’ve got spots on your shirt” or “what spot are we meeting at?” – remember to think about where and how you fit into the situations.  Do you need to be camouflaged or low key?  Do you need to be dressed down or up?
  • Watch everything, and listen!  This is not the time for talking and indulging in ego.  It is a time to move, to do things and to listen. 
  • Blending in is the best way to find out where the food and the predators are.  You are in a place where you would like to stay detached.  That is the correct choice at this time.

From Buddha - May all Beings Be filled with Joy and Happiness


May all Beings Be filled with Joy and Happiness
May all beings be filled with joy and peace.
May all beings everywhere,
The strong and the weak,
The great and the small,
The mean and the powerful,
The short and the long,
The subtle and the gross:
May all beings everywhere, Seen and unseen, Dwelling far off or nearby,
Being or waiting to become:

May all be filled with lasting joy. Let no one deceive another, Let no one anywhere despise another, Let no one out of anger or resentment Wish suffering on anyone at all. Just as a mother with her own life Protects her child, her only child, from harm, So within yourself let grow A boundless love for all creatures. Let your love flow outward through the universe, To its height, its depth, its broad extent, A limitless love, without hatred or enmity. Then as you stand or walk, Sit or lie down, As long as you are awake, Strive for this with a one-pointed mind; Your life will bring heaven to earth.
~ Sutta Nipata

Angels Speak - Celebrations of Light

The Angels speak and say that it is time to move forward to the time of light.  Many of the different belief systems are writing and speaking about the changing ways that we can look at time and distance and mass.  They are constructs that we have made, and so they  are subject to change.

There is an abundance of everything in the world because everything is energy.  We do not need to believe in scarcity.  The earth changes are showing us how much power Creator has at its finger tips.  We too, have the same power available to us.  We can use it to help Creator, and ourselves move forward.

From Judy - What Is Your Hot Button?

We all have personal sensitivities—“hot buttons”—that are evoked in close relationships. Mindfulness practice helps us to identify them and disengage from our habitual reactions, so that we can reconnect with our partners. We can mindfully address recurring problems with a simple four-step technique: (1) Feel the emotional pain of disconnection, (2) Accept that the pain is a natural and healthy sign of disconnection, and the need to make a change, (3) Compassionately explore the personal issues or beliefs being evoked within yourself, (4) Trust that a skillful response will arise at the right moment.  – Christopher Germer, "Getting Along"

I read this quote and realized how appropriate it is for these times when we are all on a short fuse and anxious about what will happen.  I wondered how many people are finding that the hot buttons that they thought were dealt with are now popping up in the most odd places, and anger is being triggered.  Or perhaps it is not anger, it is simply the huge reaction (emotional) that you have to something.  Triggers are all about learning – around self, family, and beliefs.

What beliefs do you carry that are not helping you?  What values are out dated?  What people are no longer going to be part of your life because you need to move on?

These questions are ones that we see pop up everyday.  How are you handling them?

Spirit Animal - Rabbit Runs Around


Over the last while, when I am out with the dogs in the park, we see a jack rabbit, running through the grass.  Rabbit bounds around us, and my dogs, especially Sage, want to run with him.

Rabbit shares these thoughts with us:

  • Run, leap and jump!  Keeping active will help keep anxiety at bay, and you will feel good.
  • Scout out your area and know where there are trouble spots.  Spread light there.   Watch out for predators however, because they will try to stop you.
  • Abundance happens with movement.  If you do not move, you stagnate and so does the flow of money, chi, and all things that keep you going in the physical.
  • Movement helps keep the change in perspective.  Life is constant change.  Day becomes night, and then the reverse.  It is change, but very familiar.  Keep looking to see what change is constant in your life and then expand the feeling of acceptance.
  • Dance for the Goddess!  Rabbits are the chosen animal of the Goddess, Eostare.  Celebrate the feminine.
  • Dance for the Ancestors.  Rabbits dance for those that have moved on.  We celebrate them.
  • When the Moon is bright, dance under the Moon.  Moon energy is different from Sun energy, and gives you vision.

I thanked Rabbit for sharing her thoughts.

Judy Speaks - When We Say Good Bye

Sometimes it seems that we say good-bye to a lot of people in a very short period of time.  I have felt that people are leaving quite suddenly and very quickly.

Here is what helps me keep everything in perspective.

Only For A Short While

Oh, only for so short a while you have loaned us to each other,

because we take form in your act of drawing us,

and we take life in your painting us, and we breathe in your singing us.

But only for so short a while have you loaned us to each other.

Because even a drawing cut in obsidian fades, and the green feathers, the crown feathers,

of the Quetzal bird lose their color, and even the sounds of the waterfall die out in the dry season.

So, we too, because only for a short while have you loaned us to each other.

--Aztec Indian Prayer

Buddha Speaks - A Parable About Gratitude

Several days ago, I wrote a blog about being grateful called Angels Speak - A Prayer for being Grateful.  Then, this morning, while I was going through some teachings from Buddha, I found this parable.  It is quite long, and worth the read.

I would love to hear your feedback on this parable.

Thanks and blessings,


                                                             A Parable on Gratitude

Once upon a time, King Brahmadatta of Benares had a son. He grew up to be a mean and cruel he-man - the type that's always trying to prove he's tougher than everyone else. He was a bully who constantly pushed people around and picked fights. Whenever he spoke to people it was with a stream of obscenities - right out of the gutter. And he was always quick to anger - just like a hissing snake that's just been stepped on.

People inside and outside the palace ran from him as they would from a starving man-eating demon. They avoided him as they would a speck of dirt in the eye. Behind his back everyone called him the 'Evil Prince'. In short - he was not a nice man!

One day the prince decided to go swimming. So he went down to the river with his servants and attendants. Suddenly it became almost as dark as night. A huge storm came up. Being so rough and tough, the prince was always trying to show he wasn't scared of anything. So he yelled at his servants, "Take me into the middle of the river and bathe me. Then bring me back to shore."
Following his orders, they took him out to midstream. Then they said, "Now is our chance! Whatever we do here, the king will never find out. So let's kill the Evil Prince. Into the flood you go, good-for-nothing!" With that they threw him into the stormy raging river.

When they returned to the bank, the others asked where the prince was. They replied, "We don't know. As the rain came up, he must have swum faster than us and gone back to Benares."
When they returned to the palace, the king asked, "Where is my son?" They said, "We don't know, your majesty. When the storm came up, we thought he went back ahead of us." King Brahmadatta collected a search party and began looking for the prince. They searched carefully, all the way to the riverside, but couldn't find him.

What had happened was this. In the darkness and wind and rain the prince had been swept down the flooding river. Luckily he was able to grab onto a floating dead tree trunk. Frantically he held on for dear life. As he was being swept along, the tough he-man was so afraid of drowning that he cried like a terrified helpless baby!

It just so happened that, not long before, a very rich man had died in Benares. He had buried his treasure hoard in the riverbank, along the same stretch of river. His fortune amounted to 40 million gold coins. Because of his miserly craving for riches, he was reborn as a lowly snake, slithering on his belly while still guarding his treasure.

At a nearby spot on the riverbank another rich miser had buried a treasure of 30 million gold coins. Likewise, due to his stingy clawing after wealth, he had been reborn as a water rat. He too remained to guard his buried treasure.

Lo and behold. when the storm came up, both the snake and the water rat were flooded out of their holes and washed into the raging river. In fear of drowning, they both happened to grab onto the same dead log carrying the frightened wailing prince. The snake climbed up on one end and the water rat on the other.

There also happened to be a tall cotton tree growing nearby. There was a young parrot roosting in it. When the storm-flooded river rose up, the cotton tree's roots were washed away and it fell into the water. When he tried to fly away, the wind and rain swept the little parrot onto the same dead log with the snake, the water rat and the Evil Prince.

Now there were four on the log, floating towards a bend in the river. Nearby a holy man was living humbly in a little hut. He just happened to be the Bodhisatta - the Enlightenment Being. He had been born into a rich high class family in Kasi. When he had grown up, he had given up all his wealth and position, and had come to live by himself next to the river.

It was the middle of the night when the holy man heard the cries of panic coming from the Evil Prince. He thought, "That sounds like a frightened human being. My loving-kindness will not let me ignore him. I must save him."

He ran down to the river and shouted. "Don't be afraid! I will save you!" Then he jumped into the rushing torrent, grabbed the log, and used his great strength to pull it to shore.

He helped the prince step safely onto the riverbank. Noticing the snake, water rat and parrot, he took them and the man to his cozy little hut. He started up his cooking fire. Thinking of the weakness of the animals, he gently warmed them by the fire. When they were warm and dry he set them aside. Then he let the prince warm himself. The holy man brought out some fruits and nuts. Again he fed the more helpless animals first, followed by the waiting prince.

Not surprisingly this made the Evil Prince furious! He thought, "This stupid holy man doesn't care at all for me, a great royal prince. Instead he gives higher place to these three dumb animals!" Thinking this way, he built up a vengeful hatred against the gentle Bodhisatta.

The next day the holy man dried the deadwood log in the sun. Then he chopped it up and burned it, to cook their food and keep them warm. In a few days the four who had been rescued by that same log were strong and healthy.

The snake came to the holy man to say good-bye. He coiled his body on the ground, arched himself up, and bowed his head respectfully. He said, "Venerable one, you have done a great thing for me! I am grateful to you, and I am not a poor snake. In a certain place I have a buried treasure of 40 million gold coins. And I will gladly give it to you - for all life is priceless! Whenever you are in need of money, just come down to the riverbank and call out. "Snake! Snake!"

The water rat, too, came to the holy man to say good-bye. He stood up on his hind legs and bowed his head respectfully. He said, "Venerable one, you have done a great thing for me! I am grateful to you, and I am not a poor water rat. In a certain place I have a buried treasure of 30 million gold coins. And I will gladly give it to you - for all life is priceless! Whenever you are in need of money, just come down to the riverbank and call out, "Rat! Rat!"

Such grateful generosity from a snake and a water rat! A far cry from their previous stingy human lives!
Then came the parrot to say his good-bye to the holy man. He bowed his head respectfully and said, "Venerable one, you have done a great thing for me! I am grateful to you, but I possess no silver or gold. However, I am not a poor parrot. For if you are ever in need of the finest rice, just come down to the riverbank and call out. 'Parrot! Parrot!' Then I will gather together all my relatives from all the forests of the Himalayas and we will bring you many cart loads of the most precious scented red rice. For all life is priceless!"

Finally the Evil Prince came to the holy man. Because his mind was filled with the poison of vengeance, he thought only about killing him if he ever saw him again. However, what he said was, "Venerable one, when I become king, please come to me and I will provide you with the Four Necessities." He returned to Benares and soon became the new king.

In a while the holy man decided to see if the gratitude of these four was for real. First he went down to the riverbank and called out, "Snake! Snake!" At the sound of the first word, the snake came out of his home under the ground. He bowed respectfully and said, "Holy one, under this very spot are buried 40 million gold coins. Dig them up and take them with you!" "Very well," said the holy man, "When I am in need I will come again."

Taking leave of the snake, he walked along the riverbank and called out,' "Rat! Rat!" The water rat appeared and all went just as it had with the snake.

Next, he called out, "Parrot! Parrot!" The parrot flew down from his treetop home, bowed respectfully and said, "Holy one, do you need red rice? I will summon my relatives and we will bring you the best rice in all the Himalayas." The holy man replied, "Very well, when I am in need I will come again."
Finally he set out to see the king. He walked to the royal pleasure garden and slept there overnight. In the morning, in a very humble and dignified manner, he went to collect alms food in the city of Benares.

On that same morning the ungrateful king, seated on a magnificently adorned royal elephant, was leading a vast procession around the city. When he saw the Enlightenment Being coming from a distance he thought, "Aha! This lazy homeless bum is coming to sponge off me. Before he can brag to everyone how much he did for me, I must have him beheaded!"

Then he said to his servants, "This worthless beggar must be coming to ask for something. Don't let the goodfor-nothing get near me. Arrest him immediately, tie his hands behind his back, and whip him at every street corner. Take him out of the city to the execution block and cut off his head. Then raise up his body on a sharpened stake and leave it for all to see. So much for lazy beggars!"

The king's men followed his cruel orders. They tied up the blameless Great Being like a common criminal. They whipped him mercilessly at every street corner on the way to the execution block. But no matter how hard they whipped him, cutting into his flesh, he remained dignified. After each whipping he simply announced, for all to hear: "This proves the old saying is still true - 'There's more reward in pulling deadwood from a river, than in helping an ungrateful man!'"

Some of the bystanders began to wonder why he said only this at each street corner. They said to each other, "This poor man's pain must. be caused by an ungrateful man." So they asked him, "Oh holy man, have you done some service to an ungrateful man?"

Then he told them the whole story. And in conclusion he said, "I rescued this king from a terrible flood, and in so doing I brought this pain upon myself I did not follow the saying of the wise of old, that's why I said what I said."

Hearing this story, the people of Benares became enraged and said to each other, 'This good man saved the king's life. But he is so cruel that he has no gratitude in him at all. How could such a king possibly benefit us? He can only be dangerous to us. Let's get him!"

Their rage turned the citizens of Benares into a mob. They pelted the king with arrows, knives, clubs and stones. He died while still sitting on the royal elephant. Then they threw the dead body of the one-time Evil Prince into a ditch by the side of the road.

Afterwards they made the holy man their new king. He ruled Benares well. Then one day he decided to go see his old friends. So he rode in a large procession down to the riverbank.

He called out, "Snake! Snake!" The snake came out, offered his respect and said, "My lord, if you wish it. You are welcome to my treasure." The king ordered his servants to dig up the 40 million gold coins.
He went to the water rat's home and called out, "Rat! Rat!" He too appeared, offered his respect and said, "My lord, if you wish it, you are welcome to my treasure." This time the king's servants dug up 30 million gold coins.

Then the king called out "Parrot! Parrot!" The parrot flew to the king, bowed respectfully and said, "If you wish, my lord, I will collect the most excellent red rice for you." But the holy man king said, "Not now my friend. When rice is needed I will request it of you. Now let us all return to the city."
After they arrived at the royal palace in Benares, the king had the 70 million gold coins put under guard in a safe place. He had a golden bowl made for the grateful snake's new home. He had a maze made of the finest crystals for the generous rat to live in. And the kind parrot moved into a golden cage, with a gate he could latch and unlatch from the inside.

Every day the king gave rice puffs and the sweetest bee's honey on golden plates to the snake and the parrot. And on another golden plate he gave the most aromatic scented rice to the water rat.
The king became famous for his generosity to the poor. He and his three animal friends lived together in perfect harmony for many years. When they died, they were all reborn as they deserved.

Angels Speak - A Prayer for being Grateful

I was walking through the park, and my thoughts turned to the idea of being grateful.  I am grateful for everything, even the tough things that challenge my faith in a compassionate world, filled with love and laughter.  I heard someone say, very far away, “Take it back to the basics!”

Immediately, I knew that meant that one needs to be grateful for all the basic things in life – food, shelter, clothing – all the things in Maslow’s needs hierarchy.   And then the Angels, in their mysterious way, directed me to this wonderful prayer.  

I share it now with you.


May We Be Grateful

We are blessed today, with enough to eat,
May we be grateful.
We are blessed with clothes to wear,
May we be grateful.
We are blessed with shelter from the elements,
May we be grateful.
We are very well blessed today.
May we remember that there are many people
who do not have these blessings.
May we be grateful enough to help others when we can.

Spirit Animal - Wolf Memories

An interesting thing happens to humans when they hear a wolf howl; they respond.  Sometimes with fear and usually with an intense longing to be free.  In fact, humans like the sound of the wolf so much that the howls and yips are now incorporated in to much music. 

One of my friends believes that it is because we all have wolf memories.  He thinks that we have some wolf mixed into our genes.   His reasons are:

  • Both humans and wolves are attracted to the full moon.
  • According to legend, humans become more wolf-like at the full moon.
  • Humans like to have wolves around, and dogs and wolf dogs are common pets.
  • A wolf looks into your soul, and your soul recognizes the wolf.
  • Wolves, although they live in wild places, are drawn to humans as much as humans are drawn to wolves.

What are your thoughts?

Spirit Animal - Horse Represents Travel

All my life, a large black horse has been my spirit animal, my protector, my teacher, my guide, and my friend.  She is nameless and simply gets called “Black” – so in that sense, she has a name.  She shows up less frequently than she did in the past.  Recently, however, she has been coming around and chatting a bit.

Black’s latest comments have been around movement.  She says the following:

  • Humans have been able to move faster over greater distances since they adopted the Horse people into their lives.
  • Horses run for the fun and the freedom.  It keeps them practised for when they must run for their lives.
  • Horses represent strength to humans.  Humans see strength as the ability to move with power.  They see the power to travel.
  • Horses hitched to chariots or wagons or pulling barges are all creating a form of travel for mankind.  Man has wanted Horse to pull him since he first believed that Horses pulled the Sun across the sky.
  • Celts praise the horse and even have a Horse Goddess.
  • When you think about Horse pulling humans in some contraption, you can really see that Horse is a guide or leads, humans!
  • Horse volunteered to be in Service.  Mankind decided that service was not enough.  They created many ways to “break” Horse so that man had total control of Horse.
  • Those with a Shaman’s soul truly know the beauty of Horse, and Horse is honoured to carry the Shaman across the sky when the need is there.

Ancestors Speak - We Are Temporary In This World


We are all products of what has come before – whether it is directly from our families, or from our tribes and villages, or even from our race.  This is evident as we look around the world at the events of war and terrorism.  The battles are not new ones; they are the same ones that have been fought for thousands of years.

I was in meditation and asked my guides why that was; why there was such animosity.  The Ancestors came in response to my question.  They showed me the pictures of injustices between two families, and the lining up of the friends and family on either side, and how anger sowed the seeds of jealousy, judgment, greed, animosity, and all the emotions that divide people.   They showed me how the parents fanned the seeds in the children, forcing the children to carry the legacy of the generations before them.  Children and their chance to explore something new, to become something different, were disregarded.  Children became the tool of the generations before them. 

The Ancestors went on to say that it did not matter because the body is temporary, and that many of the Beings could not come to stay in such dense energies and therefore, many lives were quite short.  Beings come in and get out.  The situation is perfect, and let it happen. 

These words made me feel like there was a greater plan around me.  Then a friend sent me this Invocation.  I share it with you so that you may use it and find peace.


Invocation of Forgiveness
Today, I call on the powers of forgiveness,
the hope that heals & wipes away resentment,
I am ready to forgive & heal old wounds.
I forgive you for the past, making way for friendship &
to forgive all who have hurt me in the past, deliberately
or by accident. I am ready to forgive myself for errors
made & things I have done in the past that I regret.
Healing replaces resentment, peace replaces anger
as forgiveness grows inside me, my heart lightens.
filling me with a sense of wellbeing & acceptance,
I embrace forgiveness, the great healer of hearts.

Spirit Animal - Beaver Gives Advice


The Beaver smacked her tail in the water, and pulled me from my deep meditation.  She was wanting to speak with me to give me some advice to share with the other people that are connected with me.  Here is her advice:

  • Never bite off more that you can chew!  When I laughed, she said that the smaller the chunks of wood, the easier they are to chew and digest.  If you are building a dam, the same truth applies.  Smaller pieces are easier to place although the dam may take longer to build.
  • Even if it isn’t pretty, your flat tail is yours.  Look after it!  She went on to say that we cannot all look alike, and that even if we are judgmental about our own looks, to move on, and to take care of ourselves.
  • Before you decide where you will wait for the crash, it is a good idea to see which way the tree is going to fall.  (Good advice, don’t you think?)  Her explanation is that often we are trying to get out of the way of something that has not yet happened.  Better to wait it out and then move, than to try for avoidance.

From Judy - Good Advice In These Quotes


                         Picture is of the fall colours from the Banff Summit


"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."  -Leo F. Buscagilia


"Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing."   -G. M. Trevelyan

I found these two quotes and felt that I needed to share them today, to remind everyone that what we feel guided to do is often what Creator needs us to do.  And, when we interfere with someone’s path because of our own limitations – saying that it can’t be done  -  we have no idea of the repercussions of our actions.

Be at peace and celebrate everything!

From Judy – Wishing Each of You a Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

The Canticle of the Creatures

Most High, all-powerful, all-good Lord,
All praise is Yours, all glory, honor and blessings.
To you alone, Most High, do they belong;
no mortal lips are worthy to pronounce Your Name.
We praise You, Lord, for all Your creatures,
especially for Brother Sun, who is the day through whom You give us light.
And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendor,
of You Most High, he bears your likeness.
We praise You, Lord, for Sister Moon and the stars,
in the heavens you have made them bright, precious and fair.
We praise You, Lord, for Brothers Wind and Air,
fair and stormy, all weather's moods,
by which You cherish all that You have made.
We praise You, Lord, for Sister Water,
so useful, humble, precious and pure.
We praise You, Lord, for Brother Fire,
through whom You light the night.
He is beautiful, playful, robust, and strong.
We praise You, Lord, for Sister Earth,
who sustains us
with her fruits, colored flowers, and herbs.
We praise You, Lord, for those who pardon,
for love of You bear sickness and trial.
Blessed are those who endure in peace,
by You Most High, they will be crowned.
We praise You, Lord, for Sister Death,
from whom no-one living can escape.
Woe to those who die in their sins!
Blessed are those that She finds doing Your Will.
No second death can do them harm.
We praise and bless You, Lord, and give You thanks,
and serve You in all humility.

St. Francis of Assisi

Angels Speak - The Differences Are Due To Ego

There are two types of people--those who come into a room and say, 'Well, here I am!' and those who come in and say, 'Ah, there you are.'   Frederick L Collins

One of my friends and i were having a fascinating conversation about the different styles that people have – styles for getting tasks accomplished in a group, or for getting people to gather behind a belief or value, or even for entering a room.  And then, coincidently, one of my friends sent the wonderful quote above.  (I love how the Universe works to give you confirmation of the ideas that pop up in your life!) 

The Angels say that we all come into this world to experience different styles, and to understand different things.  We all have uniqueness that expresses through our posture, our speech, and through how we do things. 

The Angels flashed me back to the StarTalker Quest class the other night when we were all making Prayersticks.  At the end, each of our Prayersticks did look a lot like us.  That is to say, our unique style carried in to how we decorated our Prayerstick. 

The last thought from the Angels was, “The idea of uniqueness is that humans are all experiencing something different because humans are all the same and want to have adventures.”  And then they laughed!

Spirit Animal - Kodiak Bear


I sat in meditation and breathed slowly sinking into a place of a running river, flowing over and around rocks.  Forest bordered the river about fifty feet from the sides of the river.  I then became conscious of movement to the right of me.  There was a very, very large brownish red bear.  I was startled even though I knew I had nothing to fear. 

I welcomed the bear.  He replied that he was a Kodiak Bear.  He had some sharing to provide to the world.

  • Do not be afraid to let your unique abilities shine through at this time.  Each of us has a different way of dealing with a situation.  The time for you to act is now.
  • Find your mate, and stick with them.  Each of you is drawn to the other so that you both may grow.  It is the way of things. 
  • Use your language and your body stance to defend your position.  It will earn you respect.  Fighting does not earn any  respect, and instead, demeans who you are.
  • Define what you are able to do, what you are good at, and what you are great at.  Pursue the greatness in you.  It emerges at the most appropriate time. 

I thanked Kodiak, and he drifted away.

Ancestors Speak - Following the Stars

When I read the article below, I felt a rightness about the fact that the ancestors – those in Australia or in Great Britain or in Asia, or where ever -  had a greater understanding of the stars and planets then we do now.  Our ancestors were the first stargazers, startalkers, and starwalkers. 

For me, this article is a tribute to the ancient’s way of mapping the stars.  It was part of their faith, and their belief that the stars and planets were in service to man to help man understand how to move across the land.  Stars and planets were the first compass.

This article is for you to read. I would love to hear your feedback on the article, if you have time. 

Have a wonderful day!


Aboriginal Stonehenge: Stargazing in ancient Australia

(5 October 2011 Last updated at 22:18 ET)   By Stephanie Hegarty  BBC World Service


An egg-shaped ring of standing stones in Australia could prove to be older than Britain's Stonehenge - and it may show that ancient Aboriginal cultures had a deep understanding of the movements of the stars.  Continue reading the main story

Spirit Speaks - Quadruple rainbow

I was so excited to see this article about the Quadruple Rainbow.  This is something that Mystics have been speaking about for the last ten years – the coming of changes in the natural world, and how they will be beautiful and represent love and light.

I put in the article so that you may read it at your leisure, and enjoy the energy with it.  I also expanded the picture so that it is easier to see the rainbows.

The third (l) and fourth (r) rainbows appear closer to the sun, rather than opposite it as with the first and second, which would have been behind the photographer

Spirit Animal - Black Bear Cub

The Black Bear cub appeared beside me in the dream.  She stopped and stood up.  She said that I needed to care for her.  In doing so, I would care for myself.  She said that she was worried about me, and that the time for hibernating was here, and that I still was not stopping  (what – she did not say).  She said that there will always be something, and that bears had learned how to let go.  She dropped to all fours, and said, “Let go now!”  I drifted into a deep sleep.

What do you think is going on in this conversation?

From Judy - October 1 2011

This picture looks like the parks around our area.  October comes in, and the leaves change colour.  The changes are reflected in life around us.  I have so many friends that are changing –  locations, houses, spouses, jobs, and even careers.  This year, 2011, is the year of shedding the things that do not work in our lives.

I see the changes that are happening too, in the world.  I see people working to unlock the secrets that are supposed to protect us, the people, because we will panic.  When information is kept from us, it means that someone else’s ego is working overtime, saying that that person or group of people is better than the rest of us.  I am grateful to the folks who think it is time to end secrets.

On October 28, 2011, is the last day of the Mayan Calendar, according to the revised calculations.  That means more change.  Change is good.

Here is a lovely poem by Robert Frost that talks about the changes in Nature.  Enjoy.



by Robert Frost

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow's wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow.
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know.
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away.
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow, slow!
For the grapes' sake, if the were all,
Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost--
For the grapes' sake along the all.
