Angels Speak - Flowering Lotus Position



The best time of meditation is when you can sit or lie in stillness, with your eyes closed, and see the petals of the Lotus flower floating around you.  With apologies to Yogis every where, this is the Lotus position.  It is in this space of no time that the Lotus allows one to travel near and far, and yet to have a grounding place.  The image is the gift of the Universe and becomes the symbol of a changing consciousness.

It is not always white.  Sometimes it seems a pinkish-purplish-goldish colour that captivates one’s Soul and raises the joy factor to a state of blissful. 

This is the place to stay, to grow, to heal.

Angels Speak About Rainbows



A rainbow is a source of wonder to humans.  It make people feel joyful, as though they have just witnessed a miracle.  Perhaps, it is.  Perhaps, we all have a genetic memory that rainbows were the signal that the rain was over and if there was drought, plants would grow.  Perhaps rainbows are a reminder that life goes on.  Perhaps, we feel that rainbows are about hope – they make the future seem brighter. 

“Shine your soul with the same
egoless humility as the rainbow
and no matter where you go
in this world or the next,
love will find you, attend you, and bless you.”
― Aberjhani, Journey through the Power of the Rainbow: Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry

Angels Speak–Wondrous Energy


Did you know that ENERGY never stops; it is just transformed?  What is also amazing is that energy courses through our bodies every day.  When we feel sluggish, we say we have “low” energy.  When a child is super active, we say they are “high” energy, and possibly have Attention Deficit Disorder.  We talk about energy drains on our bodies, and recharging our energy.  In fact, we talk about our bodies as though they were a battery that stores energy. 

We tend not to take good care of our bodies, or to take care of our energies.  We eat food that is processed, high in sugar, deficient in nutrients, and there takes a lot of energy to process.  We then feel tired – or low energy. 

What happens to our energy on “bad” energy days?  Does it stay with us, or drain off?  It leaves and is transformed into another object, or simply into the air, to travel to what ever it is attracted to, next.  Energy has a vibration, or frequency.  It can be high or low or nicely balanced between high and low.  It is fascinating because we all are energy.

Angels Speak - Close Your Eyes And Dream



As much as we love beautiful things, humans will close their eyes when they are so touched by “something” that they cannot bear to see it with their eyes wide open.  It may be because we have excitement, anticipation, or even a little fear around the edges of what ever we are doing.  Closing our eyes makes it seem safer. 

And, when we close our eyes, we do not let the reality of life interfere with our search for possibilities.  We know that things can happen that are not always explainable in ordinary terms.  There is a certain physics of believing, or dreaming, or praying, that allows the future to be generated with our eyes closed.

Make a wish.  Check your eyes.  Were they opened or closed?  How quickly did your wish manifest?

Spirit Animals - Take Time To Feed Others



The dog and the lamb (not the Lion and the Lamb) are here to remind us that many people and animals wander this world, without enough food to nourish them.  They say that all deserve the right to have food.  All deserve the opportunity to forage for food.  All deserve to be gifted food. 

The message is clear that we need to give what we can without prejudice or judgment or conditions,  about who or what we are feeding.  We need to find compassion within ourselves to help others over come the challenges that they have.  We who can need to help to feed those who cannot. 

Find time to feed someone today.

Angels Speak - Believe In Your Destination


What do you want to be?  Who do you want to be?  The correct answer to both of these questions is: “Yourself”.  You are unique. That ability to think, do, see, hear, smell, in a way that no one else can therefore offers a service to the Earth and to the Universe that is distinct from all others. We have been fashioned by media, by drugs, by food,  to behave like flocks of sheep. The energies that are bombarding the Earth from other parts of the Universe are stimulating people to step out of the fog of banality.  Moving forward, people will be discovering, creating, inventing things that we did not “believe” could be done.  All things are possible.

Angels Speak - Energy Radiates From You


There is a shift in people’s view of what feels right.  This shift is partly because all of the humans are starting to feel the stirring of the energy in them.  People are radiating goodness, kindness, compassion.  It may only be in small ways, and yet, energy waves travel remarkable distances.  Good deeds are moving human consciousness forward.  People are more content with being.  True, there are days were nothing feels right.  More often though, there is a sense of moving through time and space.  There is a feeling that the Earth must be helped; that animals and humans need assistance when they are not able to fend for themselves. This energy is moving us forward.

Buddha Speaks --- No Ego



When there is no ego or selfishness, there is nothing that will destroy nature, nothing that will exploit and abuse nature. Then the external, physical aspect of nature will be able to conserve itself automatically.   —Buddhadasa, “Conserving the Inner Ecology”

One of the most difficult things seems to be recognizing what is ego, and what is not.  Ego is the piece of you that works to keep you safe when you are in situations that could be dangerous to your health.  That is a good thing!

Then, there is the Ego that gets you in trouble by going into rhapsody over your looks, or voice, or abilities, or what ever.  It exaggerates.  Or, it becomes the voice of dissent.  And, it discourages you from trying new things.

We do need to embrace our Ego, and the let it go.

Buddha Speaks - Looking For Signs


When we see these words, we know that we are moving towards the peacefulness that we all crave.

It is often difficult to recognize signs in other languages, and yet, the meaning of the words become clear when we look around and see how people behave. 

We are one.  We can practice equanimity, or awareness, or being quiet, or being still.  It is your choice to  find the signs, the words, the actions that work for you.

Spirit Speaks - You Have A Home With ME



When we think of safety, we generally think of “home”.  What does that really mean?  Home can be where we were born, or brought up, or where we feel the happiest such as being at Grandmother’s house.  Or, home can be about the group/tribe that accepts you and wants to help you with all that you do.   It is wonderful to have the feeling of home around you.

Buddha Speaks - It Is About Zen



Life, I think, is about learning to move through each day with Grace and cheerfulness.  It is about learning to not attach to any things or outcomes.  If we can do this, then life is beautiful and everything flows. 

When we try to control outcomes, the lives of those around us, and when we become inflexible, then life becomes difficult because it cannot flow; we will not let it move easily.   Hanging on to people, to possessions, and to belief systems are going to get in the way of the flow.  They become your personal speed bumps on the way to a peaceful life.

Angels Speak - On Trying Too Hard



Sometimes, it is just in our nature to try to hard.  We are like the Beavers that constantly try to dam up the raging river.  We do the same thing over and over and there are not any results that we can see.  Like the Beaver, we do make changes happen, even if they are not apparent to us.  We see the changes around us and judge them by our standard which we believe is failure.  So, everyone else is a success! 

It is not so.  No one is more or less successful.  It is the measuring stick that says someone is successful because they have more money.  What we do not see is that they may be in a deficit position for kindness and compassion.  Or, they may be in a deficit in “human-ness”.  We do not move forward to any of the challenges ahead with lots of money.

Angels Speak - You Are The Universe



Each of us has the capacity to see the sky, the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars.  If we have keen eyes, we can see the planets, space stations, satellites, and shooting stars.

We see them because we recognize them.  Each of us has the memory of the Universe in our cells, to draw on when needed.  We know so much more than we are!

Angels Speak–Make Your Choices


There is a lot to be said for having free will!  It allows us to make choices that are good for us.  So many people allow others to choose for them.  This absolves them of any guilt of making the wrong choice.  However, life does not work like that.  If you allow others to choose, then, you have made a choice to take that course of action.  You are responsible.

Spirit Speaks - Finding the Light Within


Drifting off in meditation, you may find one day that you see a light that seems to be far away.  As you go deeper, the light moves closer.  If you see the light move closer yet,  you may see that it is in the shape of a flower.  If you are quite close to the light, you may recognize the familiar form of the Lotus flower.  The light in each of us as it grows brighter blossoms into the radiance that looks like a lotus.  It is amazing!  It is right for us to see it.  Sit in silence.  Let the light come.  Do not force it, and see what transpires.

Spirit Animal - Dove Rising


When things are looking bleak, I think about the Doves that sit in our Mountain Ash every morning.  About sixteen of them gather to wait for the light to grow brighter before they descend to the ground to eat the seeds that I have spread under the tree.


We must combine the toughness of the serpent with the softness of the dove, a tough mind and a tender heart.” ~~Martin Luther King, Jr.

I heard a Stock-dove sing or say His homely tale, this very day; His voice was buried among trees, Yet to be come at by the breeze: He did not cease; but cooed--and cooed: And somewhat pensively he wooed: He sang of love, with quiet blending, Slow to begin, and never ending; Of serious faith, and inward glee; That was the song,--the song for me! ~~~ William Wordsworth

And there my little doves did sit With feathers softly brown And glittering eyes that showed their right To general Nature's deep delight. ~~~Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Angels Speak - The Rainbow Beings


We once believed that everything that lived over the rainbow was a myth or make believe.  We said that unicorns never existed, that Fairies were not real, and that there never was a time when Poseidon lived on Earth. 

We really cannot be sure of what is real and what is not.  For many millennia, humans have been lied to by the Kings, Queens, and religions.  These institutions have decided what is truth and what is not.

Mystics are saying that the Rainbow Beings have arrived, and have been arriving since the year 2000.  The children without karma, with large eyes and realms of knowledge, and a belief in all of those things beyond the rainbow, are here to help us change.  Perhaps we will all get to go new places – maybe, somewhere over the rainbow!

Blessings to all!

Spirit Animal–Have A Whale Of A Time



The legends speak of how mankind migrated from the sea, birthed by whales and dolphins.  These are legends that seem impossible.  The question that must be asked, I think, is that if you believe this legend, then, where did whales and dolphins come from?   Other legends talk about whales carrying humans from place to place across the ocean, in a manner more quickly than a sailing ship or even an airplane.  Whales, it is said, have the gift of traveling through time and space.  This gift is something that humans crave.  Yet, it seems that while humans work at reaching this level of ability through technology, Whale simply exists in a state of fun and of adventure, and does many things with out effort.  One could say that whales have a whale of a time!

Angels Speak - No Limits


While many of you think that you are in shackles because of families, or jobs, or your own stagnation, the truth is that all that limits you is your desire.   You have the freedom to be what ever you wish, or to live where ever you wish or to live as you wish.  What limits you is the voice in your head that tells you all the reasons that you cannot do any of this.  And, family or friends will tell you what you can and cannot do.  Know this – you were all give the ability to choose.  This gift lies in your heart.  If you do what the heart feels is right, then you will move forward with grace and ease.  When you do what others tell you feels right, then you have given up control and must move sideways or backwards, and nothing feels right. 

Life is a daily regime of making choices.  Abdicating your choice is like abdicating your will to live.  Choose what makes you happy and you will live with peace and contentment. 

All is well.

Angels Speak - Merging



“Dearest Ones!  You have forgotten how you all fit together.  The Water that flows through each of you comes from the Earth and returns to the Earth and moves to the oceans where what you were touches the ocean creatures.  The oceans wash up on the shore and flow into the rivers and leave a little bit of themselves behind.  Oceans feed the subterranean waterways that flow under land to soothe the hot Earth.  The humans absorb little bits of the ocean when they eat or drink from products of the Earth.  It is a circle.  It keeps all of you.  Be kind to those in the circle.”

Blessings to all!

Spirit Animals - We Are Cousins


“As you destroy us and the planet, you destroy your self.  We are all of the same blood as all minerals and nourishment comes from the same Earth.  Have you not realized this?  Do you think we are separate?  We all touch each other.” – The Spirit Animals

Angels Speak - Set Sail For Something New



Friends are lovely and comforting, however, they seldom push you beyond the comfort zone that you live in.  If you do try to move beyond that zone, often, friends will be the first to tell you, in your best interest of course, that you will fail in this new venture.

Generally, we humans are not about being safe.  We humans are not about being fool hardy, but we do like our adventure.  THAT is why so many people are willing to try adventure vacations, extreme sports, and all the other very extraordinary things that are out there for us to do.  Moving beyond safe keeps us alive because, every day, we renew our interest in life.

Blessings to all!

Buddha Speaks–No Comfort Zone



It has been important to get out of your comfort zone. It is just as important to take time to be still and let all tension go.
“Even a layman – if he finds a little time to be silent and to be meditative and discovers his self nature in his own home, in the marketplace, he will become the Buddha.”

Osho, Bodhidharma: The Greatest Zen Master, Talk #8

Blessings to all!

Angels Speak–Change the World


This is the time to look at what you can change.  Changes are required at a personal level, a community level, a city wide level, and across the country.

Read about Charmian Gooch at Ted Talks   What it is about:

Anonymous companies protect corrupt individuals – from notorious drug cartel leaders to nefarious arms dealers – behind a shroud of mystery that makes it almost impossible to find and hold them responsible. But anti-corruption activist Charmian Gooch hopes to change all that. At TED2014, she shares her brave TED Prize wish: to know who owns and controls companies, to change the law, and to launch a new era of openness in business.

Blessings to all!
