Thank you to all the authentic spiritual teachers who are trying to get the message out to all of us that gratitude, along with the power of love (for ourselves and all living beings), is something we don’t want to live without. A softly uttered thank you, a loving thank you shout from a hilltop, or dancing to our own movements in our own space to the words of thank you, thank you first thing in the morning and last thing at night guides, guards, protects, directs our day in a way we can’t imagine. Let’s go for it.

Ready for an amazing day? I am.

“Long will you wander in a wilderness of confusion and distress until you come home . . . to a higher consciousness.” ANO ANO THE SEED by Kristin Zambucka

the peace prayer

What would happen if many of us recited the Peace Prayer tonight? -I’m thinking maybe a big shift in mass consciousness. Maybe?

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.


What do you think, would it work?

I’m always curious to read what’s written about Ancient Aliens and their connection to us. What’s exciting now is that reliable, well-informed people are dedicated to unraveling the truth about this subject. There was a time when only a few were privy to discoveries, or if they were revealed further information was not forthcoming, or it was misleading. However, In recent years those who are dedicated to the cause of revealing the truth of all that’s been discovered are in a tug-of-war; they appear to be making some headway, although the process is painfully slow. Are you with me? Am I making sense of all this?

Philip Coppens “is an author and investigative journalist, ranging from the world of politics to ancient history and mystery,” and in Watkins Books, Issue 30, BODY MIND SPIRIT is an article he wrote, We Were Not Alone The Ancient Alien Question, and in it he gives a preview of how things are progressing in the search for knowledge pertaining to this immensely interesting subject. We’re brought up-to-date on the opinions of a few archaeologists, and he also says that: “Many of the leading archaeologists are also often embarrassingly unaware of the latest archaeological findings their colleagues make.”

A few things mentioned in the article are:
Erich von Daniken in his book, Chariots of the Gods, pondered whether the Nazca Lines in the desert sands of Peru could “be an ancient airport.”
“There are the quaint descriptions in the Bible” – e.g., “What to make of Genesis 6?”
“What has astronomy discovered?”
“British astrophysicists Sir Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe have even shown that a number of viruses – including the common flu virus – come from outer space, arriving on our planet riding on passing comets whose dust settles in our upper atmosphere.”
“Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, in the 1970s, he argued that DNA was too complex and intricate to have been accidentally created in primordial ooze on Planet Earth. Half a century on he is being proven correct.”
new archaeological discoveries
and more

His new book is THE ANCIENT ALIEN QUESTION: A New Inquiry into the Existence, Evidence, and the Influence of Ancient Visitors, and judging from the article from which the above was taken, and from the vast amount of information on his website, the book should give readers more insight into a subject that has piqued the curiosity of many, and who are hoping that soon an answer to the following question is forthcoming: Did Ancient Aliens visit Planet Earth? Then we can go on from there and answer all the other questions – maybe. It seems a complicated situation what with scientists, archaeologists, those in “denial,” and those feeling there’s plenty of evidence all having a say. However, it’s been said that persistence pays off.

AND The New Earth Mediterranean Cruise 2012 with Dolores Cannon & Guy Needler
5 – 15 October, 2012 –


Dolores Cannon is a writer, past-life regressionist, teacher, international speaker, and pioneering hypnotherapist “who specializes in the recovery and cataloging of ‘lost knowledge,’ ” and it doesn’t stop there. I’d say that she’s surely her own person. Have you clicked on to her website recently? I just listened to Lilou Mace interviewing her, and in the video she uses the phrase “mind bending.” It was that for the most part for me. She talked about the new earth and the old earth, the reasons many people are changing their diet, forgiveness, fear, love, water, manipulating energy, upgrading ourselves, ending the cycle of karma, back-drop people, strange and unusual concepts, and more. It’s very good for the brain to hear new things, often we experience a shift, and that’s exciting.

Philip Coppens and Dolores Cannon are both devoted to and have strong feelings for what they do, and in hearing and reading about their views – whether we understand or not, believe or not – we can’t look at this vast universe in quite the same way as we once did.


It’s hot and humid – hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

the storm before the calm, a book

Are you tuned into those people who are saying that it’s time for humanity to reinvent itself? The key’s in the lock, turning ever so slightly, waiting for each one of us to join, to play our part in the building of momentum. All thoughts in sync so that together we can change the old, which is not serving us or Planet Earth, for a way that allows mankind and Planet Earth to evolve as they were meant to, without the constraints that have held mankind in check for so long.

Many thought that the world was coming to an end; many others thought that “the end” meant life as we now know it. Evidence suggests the gloom and doom end of existence wasn’t quite configured correctly, and in the place of that idea is a belief that humanity is on the brink, has a good chance of, let’s say . . . changing.

That brings us to Neale Donald Walsch, who, if we are ready and willing to become part of this happening, is ready and willing to show us a way. Actually, when you look around at what’s going on in the world, we’ve absolutely nothing to lose.

There has to be a better way.

hybrid foods

When I go into Whole Foods and see the words, “seedless strawberries” and “seedless grapes” and “seedless watermelons” and “seedless raisins” etc. I wonder what exactly is going on with the altering of our food. Those “hybrid foods” are full of unnatural sugars, chemicals, and pesticides. They have no nutritional worth. The people who have taken it upon themselves to alter our foods are, shall we say (it’s important here to use the right words), a greedy bunch. The Creator made these perfect foods to nourish living creatures. Those who are mindlessly tampering with Earth’s bounty to make themselves rich are serving no one, not even themselves. Eventually, the greedy ones will have to pay the piper for thinking that the Earth is theirs to do with as they please.

This morning I picked up the book, Agartha by Meredith Lady Young and read the passage:
“While the use of chemicals has forced larger production, it is hollow production, for there is no integrity in this kind of bloom or grain. It exists without the permission of the plant. The plant is forced to produce-not allowed to produce-and herein lies the difference. Because violation of plants by this force-feeding method actually shortens its life cycle and eliminates any joy in the production process. Nature’s usefulness as a continuing food source is becoming diminished. The food which is produced is filled with the artificial, negative aspects of creation and lacks the overriding positive energy infused in the natural growing cycle. Even the water is becoming so acidic and filled with pollutants that basic water replenishment is no longer possible. How can health be produced from plants which are prevented from having a proper relationship with the essential elements which provide for joyful and complete growth? How is man to know that the planet suffers if he is deaf to any perceptual interchange?”

Agartha was published in 1984. I can only imagine what the greedy ones have done with our food since then.

Is there anyone who understands how the greedy ones can put money before living beings? Life is short, living at the expense of others is risky. Maybe they don’t believe in an afterlife, or in karma. Maybe they’re wrong. Maybe we need to find a way to set them straight so that Planet Earth will thrive once again. Does anyone have any ideas?

Greediness, an excessive, extreme desire for something, often more than one’s proper share.

just pondering

If you could, what would you change in the world on a large scale? If you were up to the challenge, what would your heart tell you?

I think about the people whose focus is to uplift society, and the meager money and attention they get. And I think about those who manage to dumb down society by attempting to pull its people into being unquestioning, and untiring and devoted spectators, completely engrossed in nonsensical things while they with their dumb-down ideas accumulate big bucks. This seems to happen in just about any serious problem facing society – poverty, disease, crime, pollution. etc. Nature, however, suggests that the alternative could be wildly and magnificently different.

During lazy moments, or after reading an article that revs up the intellect, I ponder the many different turns available to a society at any given time in its history. There are the people having an idea for change, and there are “the leaders,” and then those having a say in the matter either wanting or not wanting change (sometimes to the detriment of society, and the betterment of themselves). And lastly, there are those having the energy required to execute the change, or to stop it. And little by little, a society flourishes by those who uplift it, or is tainted by those seeking money and/or power. And what could be simple becomes overwhelming complicated.

That said, I smell change in the air – ready and waiting.

thomas paine

Thomas Paine served as the first Secretary of State for Pennsylvania, and I’m not seeing many statues of him as I meander around Philadelphia. Though perhaps there are too many of Benjamin Franklin. When delving into this matter, I found a website, that mentioned the Thomas Paine Plaza, and this is what is written: “Right across City Hall in Penn Square, you’ll find Thomas Paine Plaza. Named after the author of “Common Sense.” There are two sculptures as part of the Thomas Paine Plaza – one is of Benjamin Franklin the craftsman, the other a tribute to the US Bicentennial in 1976.” The lack tells its own story.

I continued searching and found an article in Namaste magazine Vol.9 Issue 3,,

I learned about his commitment “In the establishment of a free government.” And that he “Coined the title ‘United States of America.” That he wrote Common Sense and Age of Reason. And he was “First to call for independence from England and provided the tone and content for the Declaration of Independence.” He was “First to advocate the abolition of slavery and write the first law regarding emancipation (1775).” And “First to publicly call for complete equality for women.” He “Organized the first bank in America to fund the Revolution and took the lead in funding the Revolution, organized supplies and donated all proceeds of Common Sense to the cause.” He was “First to call for a constitutional convention in 1778 for the Articles of Confederation.” And was “Instrumental in the first victory of the Revolution at Trenton when, with the first of his Crisis Papers, he inspired the troops. He wrote, ” ‘These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country, but he that stands it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.’ ” – something he never received. Yet, “Robert Inglesol (1833-1899), wrote of Thomas Paine, ‘With his name left out, the history of liberty cannot be written.”

I continued reading, “Thomas Paine was nothing in England. He belonged to the lower classes,” as did Benjamin Franklin. “There was no avenue open for him so he left England at the age of thirty-seven for America.” I find this sad, and, as usual when reading this about our history, immensely informative. Truthfully, I’m ashamed for not attempting to learn about this brilliant individual called Thomas Paine until now.

At The Philosophical Society at 105 South Fifth Street in Philadelphia his manuscript collection, letters he wrote, letters written to him, documents, and a poem of his can be viewed and homage paid to a man who “was one of the foremost political philosophers of the 18th century” and whose “ideas influenced the courses of both the American Revolution and the French Revolution and are still of significance today.”

Imagine, Thomas Paine (1737-1809) was accorded no recognition, given no thanks, and died in dire straits, in total poverty. I’ll say a silent thank you to him as I think it’s never too late to say thank you.

“My country is the world and my religion is to do good.” – Thomas Paine (1737 – 1809) – one of the great polemicists in American history

edgar cayce

Every so often I read a book about the fascinating life of Edgar Cayce. Fascinating is an understatement because there is no one word that’s useful in describing how he was able to do what he did – tapping into the akashic records, his readings and healings, the founding of A.R.E, etcetera. Writers of books about him simply say, “he had developed a gift in former lifetimes.” (from THE OIL THAT HEALS by William A. McGarey, M.D.) It makes you think, doesn’t it? If you believe in reincarnation, and, it appears that many of us do, then living a life that adds in some way to a better world, and a better self, is the way to go.

What a beautiful day it is. Are you enjoying it?


One morning I logged on to my laptop, and noticed a piece on aol about the most dangerous cities in the US. It wasn’t pretty. Many of the photos were of police capturing troublemakers, all in terribly run-down sections of towns. After that I got to thinking about the word quality, and the fact that it doesn’t seem to exist in many movies flooding the big screen lately. Dark, full of violence and destruction, gruesome murders, suck your energy and leave you feeling drained, scare for scare’s sake, kind of movies are rolling out of Hollywood more than ever. Why? Is it easy money? If those producers would, with the same kind of publicity and enthusiasm, put their attention on feeding the mind, spirt and emotions instead of feeding anger, aggression, and violence, what a difference it would make in the lives of people. It’s the same with video games. It’s been said that we use 5% of our brain power – some manage to use a little more. Not impressive. That number would be laughable in any other area of life. We can up the ante in many ways, but I don’t think those dark, violent, aggressive, change the chemical balance of the body kind of movies are going to do it for us. Imagine how different it could all be.

Motherhood for Me

Motherhood for me has been such an interesting journey and my son is only 18 months old as of yesterday Nov. 25th. I knew it would change me and change my life but I didn’t know it would add so many layers to my life.

Before Sebastian was born I thought I already had a full life. It was like a part of me awoke after he was born and they told me I had a baby boy in the hospital. I guess that part of me was always there but I just didn’t realize it or know it until Sebastian arrived.

For this reason alone I am so happy we decided to embark in the world of neverending worry, love, and concern, and hopes for our child and hopefully future children. That part of parenting is so mind boggling. All the worrying and hopes and concern you feel for your child it is just nuts. You worry if they are sleeping enough or eating enough or not enough. You worry if they are developing at a fast enough pace or if you should or shouldn’t be giving them certain foods. It is just neverending… I mean there is a whole book section on how to properly raise your child. Unfortunately there are differing opinions on how to raise your child and do things.  That topic is a whole other blog in itself which I am sure I will get there one of these days.

Ok back to motherhood and how much I absolutely love it. The best part is the first time you see your baby in the morning. It is truly like Christmas every day when you see him for the first time.

I just can look at him for hours and think how spectacular he is and how cute and funny he is.  I mean what a sense of humor our child has. He really just cracks me up.

I love thinking of all the wonderful experiences we are going to share all through the years of him growing up. It really is exciting. I can’t wait! I do have to remember to not wish today away.

For the days are long but the years are fast when raising children – such a true statement.

The one thing I love about my son is how sweet and comforting he is to me. He truly has saved me from myself in a way. He puts so much perspective in my life – keeps me grounded.  I can’t say enough great things about being a mom.

When I hear my friends are expecting I am so excited for them to experience the most amazing joy in life… giving life. What a true gift it is, the best one I could have ever hoped or asked life to give me.

Just as Oprah says, “This I know is true” I know being a mother is the most amazing job and experience this life has to offer and I am blessed to have it.
