Just A Butterfly On My Hand

If you advance confidently in the direction of your own dreams and endeavor to live the life which you have imagined, you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. It will chase you.”

…Henry David Thoreau

Yesterday was a world-class day.

Have you ever witnessed or experienced something that was so profoundly beautiful that it brought tears to your eyes?

This is the highest octave of any day’s energetics.

Beauty has many forms and definitions.  It applies to anything and everything.

I write almost every day and I do not have words to describe what happened to me yesterday.  It is one of those days when I wish I was an artist of some kind because words fail me when attempting to describe what happened.  Playing an instrument, dancing, or using the voice for singing would be the only way to fully engender the meaning.

Thus, I will honor the beauty of the heart of it as purely and as simply as I can: We are greatly loved, and the enormity of it is realized by us only in flickers.

The stars flickered for us yesterday.  And, strangely here is what happened…

As most of you know, I lost one of my sisters to breast cancer and the void she left can be all-consuming some days. But, on other days, well, things magical happen. “As above, so below” is an ancient adage that declares a belief in the physical connection between heaven and earth. And, yesterday I experienced a mystical moment.

But, first I must tell you that, for our family, butterflies are very significant. Whenever we see a butterfly we know that my sister is close by. This is because, shortly after her death, her daughter who was seeing a grief counselor, was asked: “If your mommy could come back, what would she come back as?” She responded almost immediately and with great conviction: “Oh, my mommy would be a butterfly.”

And, when at Christmas of the same year, she yanked on her clacker, (that yearly tradition in some Christian households) to get her gift that was inside…and a butterfly popped out, we knew without a doubt that my sister, who had a great sense of humor, was making a visit. So…ever since then….butterflies are significant.

Well, as it happened, yesterday a man came up to me with his hands cupped. He opened them and then gently placed on my finger, the coolest, most beautiful butterfly. A Swallowtail Butterfly to be exact. You rarely see any of them, though, as they spend much of their lives feeding high up in trees, and do so mostly at night.

Not yesterday. Yesterday, this stunning, graceful, elegant, exquisite living being, visited me and stayed on my hand for at least 15 minutes! In the midst of all the craziness and insanity that this world is doling out right now; in the middle of this huge transition that humanity is going through, I actually drew a crowd as people wanted to see up close the beauty of this spectacular butterfly.

And, I got quite emotional as I stood there. For, you see, I knew without a doubt that this was my sister paying us a visit. And, she had the ability to make people pause for a second, from their busy lives, to admire the beauty this world has to offer.

I realized something else too. In the parallel of the cycle of growth of a butterfly, we are in the time of the “growing season” when the caterpillar cocoons and makes its way through the darkness of the chrysalis to come out into the light of day.  In the natural cycle, this is the time of persevering through challenges to our hopes, wishes and dreams.

My sister showed me in her quiet, ethereal, unearthly, kind of way that just as she made the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly, we too, are being lifted above and beyond.  Out of harm’s way.

So, advance confidently in the direction of your dreams. If you do, you’ll meet with a success that can only be imagined! It will chase you. My sister chased us yesterday. It was a beautiful act of love.

What Really Matters

New beginnings are exciting! They’re also a little scary.

While we’ve been busy chasing that elusive thing we call money, our planet has been actively re-balancing herself in order to aid us…the collective humanity, shift into a New World. A better world.

We have been moving into this new awareness as our own bodies have been re-calibrating in order to accommodate this new frequency vibration. Have you noticed low energy, or headaches, or any dizziness recently? These may be signs that your body is re-balancing itself. And the pace is quickening.

I can guarantee that all of us are facing personal challenges at this time. It may be health issues, relationship challenges, or finding a sound spiritual grounding. A lot is going on.

If you are sensing that the world is literally on the edge of huge change, then no wonder you are reading this! You are right on point.

This year your mind will process thousands of emails, Facebook posts, Tweets, Pinterest, Instagram, phone calls, TV shows, personal conversations and more. All this information is like candy for your brain. And, when it needs its fix, this “pain-body” will pester away at you until you feed it.

All this constant “distraction” is the food it needs to replenish itself. It eagerly devours every distracted thought. And, all this does is take your awareness to your outside environment when your journey here in life is to go inside and find Truth.

Hey I get it. My family knows only too well how thin I spread myself sometimes. That’s why I need to block out sections of my day to shut out all that noise and distraction and do my inner work. To get beyond and return to that inner sacred sanctuary where I meet up with blissful silence, peace, and fulfillment.

As our Mother Earth transitions into the new higher frequency, we come to realize that this is our next step in the evolution of humanity. Remember, whether we consciously know this or not, we chose to be here at this most critical juncture in the history of mankind.

Now is the time to find your own Personal Power. Once we see the true bigger picture of who we are and what we’re here for, everything gets reset and we start on a brand new path in life.

How do we put our best foot forward in 2016? What is the most productive and effective course of action in our personal lives?

Abundant Blessings for 2016! And…Keep Shining. This planet needs your warmth.


What If…


“Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rage at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

…Dylan Thomas as quoted by Professor Brand.

I was travelling this past week and, while on route, I watched a movie. It was not a typical movie that I would be attracted to, but one that was recommended to me by someone I have grown to have a deep respect for. So I pressed the “Play” button and sat back to watch. Never expecting to be blown away. Never expecting to be taken to a new level of thinking while I watched.

The pilot had said, “Sit back. Relax. Enjoy the flight.” And, so like a spectator, along for the ride, I did just that.

But, this was one of those movies that as you got deeper and deeper into it, you knew intuitively that it was special.  You knew, watching this that it was no longer okay to be lulled into false sense of calm, to be a bystander, an onlooker.

Funny isn’t it, how different it is when you are the driver, choosing your own route, and taking ownership for whatever happens?

So, how do you become the driver in a way that doesn’t cause fear and a sense of doom to all those who are on the road with you? How do you do it in a way that has you slamming on the brakes and skidding to a stop shouting “Wow, what a ride!”

Check out the new level of thinking I discovered Here…

We are all artists whether we like it or not. For some, this takes the form of math or science, or law; for others, it’s photography or teaching, or scuba diving. But, we each have our own studio. And, we can leave it dark and empty, or we can bring it to life.

WHAT IF, as we’re driving along this highway of life, we threw out the window all that stuff that has kept us prisoners of our own minds? Those places where the mind is absolutely sure that things are what they’re made out to be? 

WHAT IF the next time you read something, or saw a video that seemed to be way too out there to be true, you stopped yourself when your mind started thinking, “That’s ridiculous.” Or, “Conspiracy theory.” And, listening with your heart, you said to yourself instead, “WHAT IF?”

It will open up a whole new level of thinking for you. And, it’s that kind of thinking that is desperately needed in this world today. That heart thinking. Instead of the old race track of thinking… looping and speeding around and around but going nowhere.

You see, our planet is situated in a place Between. The. Stars.  With unlimited possibilities. Like the movie, there is powerful energy out there just waiting for us. YOU are in the driver’s seat.

WHAT IF the only keys you need to start the engine is LOVE?





3 Little-Known Factors That Could Affect Your Success

Thing one and thing two-Standup-FINAL

“When something bad happens you have three choices. You can either let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.”

…Dr. Seuss

Next time you have a bad day, or a bad experience, think about this:  That you chose to be here, at this most pivotal time in the history of mankind. There is a job that you are here to do. You have a unique gift that only YOU will contribute to the evolution of humanity. In a profound way.

Make no mistake. Man is no accident. He is an integral part of the Cosmos and a participant in the destiny and the purpose of the Universe. This is a scientific fact.

But, like children in a playground, there comes a time when when we must put aside our childish ways. For it’s easy when something bad happens, to crumple in a heap and play victim. To say to yourself, “I’ll never be good enough, or I’ll never be smart enough, or I’ll never be strong enough.”

We must push against this old energy, this old Paradigm that we have all been living in for centuries for 3 very all-important reasons:

1. This energy is not consistent with ours.

I mean, do you ever feel sometimes like you’re pushing against common sense? Or you’re pushing against your family? Or the workers you work with, or the politics, or the main religions that are out there? Everywhere you go, you seem to be pushing. All those experiences that you’ve had over and over again, you’ve had to push against this old energy.

The good news is….is that old energy is dying. It has to. Hatred, and wars, and discrimination, and domination are simply not acceptable anymore because they don’t work. They haven’t advanced our evolution.

2. Our energy must now be used for the evolution of our soul. 

It’s time to go to work. It’s time to re-write the program of what we’ve been used to. And, it’s easier now to do that because so many of us have started to awaken. We are beginning to see what people have been telling us. Little by little human consciousness is cleaning itself up!

What is appropriate now are things like cultural wisdom, and wisdom of behaviour.

3. Drop the expectation of failure. That’s the old paradigm!

Here’s the secret. Old energy starts to go away…and be replaced with  something you didn’t expect. Things that you will try in business, and in life will work! But, they will work ONLY if you drop the old paradigm of the expectation of failure. Start expecting success! Make it your intention! Call upon the energy of the cosmos with the intention of success.

If you do, you are sending out a signal to the universe ~ to places you don’t even know exist in this energy ~ to work with you to push you forward!

Remember, the old energy tells you that you’ll never be good enough, never be smart enough…that nobody cares, nobody listens. Don’t buy into it! We have moved past this extinct energy. Why would you?

Our souls have miracles in our pockets!


The Shocking Truth About The Power of Words


“Words are like eggs dropped from great heights; you can no more call them back than ignore the mess they leave when they fall.”

…Jodi Picoult

I don’t know about you, but I grew up with the saying “Sticks and stones will hurt my bones, but words will never harm me.”

That is a lie.

Words are very powerful. They have the ability to create something wonderful and the brutal force to destroy it.

We have all said things at different times in our lives that we wish we could take back as soon as those words were out of our mouths. Why is that? I think it’s because we know on some deep inner level that once those words leave our mouth, they can only be forgiven; they will never be forgotten.

Here’s something very important. Here’s the shocking truth about where those words that you flung out so casually go…

To that person who caught those words you carelessly hurled, well, they were downloaded straight into the subconscious memory of who you said them to!  And, as a result, those words become enmeshed or “hardwired” in the subconscious mind as absolute “facts.”

Once programmed into the subconscious mind, they control your biology for the rest of your lives. That is, unless you figure out a way to reprogram them.

So, these verbal abuses, because that’s what they are, become defined as “truths” that unconsciously shape your behavior and your potential throughout your life. Imagine the consequences of parents saying things like “You are so stupid,” “You will never amount to anything,” “You don’t deserve things”….you get the idea.

Consider that your minds are 10% conscious and 90% subconscious. The verbal (conscious) brain is your “manual control” and the non-verbal (subconscious) brain is the “auto-pilot.”

The subconscious brain operates in the PRESENT always. Your conscious brain can go back and forth between present, past, and future. It can look both forward and backward.

In a nutshell, your subconscious mind is an emotionless database of stored programs. Its function is only concerned with reading environmental signals and engaging in “hardwired” behavioral programs ~ no questions asked ~ no judgements made.

The conscious mind on the other hand, is “the ego,” the voice of your own thoughts. It can have great plans and visions for a future filled with love, health, happiness, and prosperity. And, while you focus your consciousness on happy thoughts, who is running the show? That’s right. The subsconscious. Exactly the way it was programmed.

Words are more powerful than perhaps you have ever before considered. Its effects can be far reaching. Choose your words wisely. A tongue has no bones but it is strong enough to break a heart. Why not use your words today to lift someone up instead of knocking them down?

And, sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all.


The One Thing That Got Me Through a Very Tough Year

“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
…Marcel Proust

As we celebrate the joy of this season, take a moment for yourself in all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Go outside. Stand there in silence. Look up into the sky and reflect on how amazing life is. Ponder for a moment, if you will, how magnificent this planet which houses us truly is.

Is the sun shining? Can you feel that crisp winter air on your face? Is there snow on the ground? A fire burning in your home? Do you have a warm bed to sleep in? Go on, take it all in as you stand there…these are blessings. Simple things. Beautiful things.

You have been the gardener of my soul this year and for that I am very thankful. Have a charming, enchanting Holiday season filled with people you love and the gifts of magical moments.

Here’s a delightfully magical moment that was gifted to people in Germany in December of this year…


How To Restore Your Sanity By Jumping On a Unicorn!


“It’s not a unicorn, it’s a horse with a sword on its head that protects my hopes and dreams.”

You know, someone told me I was delusional and I nearly fell off my Unicorn! So you see, your hopes and dreams need to be protected at all costs. They come to you by way of the heart. And, after all everyone knows that your heart stores all the wisdom you’ll ever need.

People are now just beginning to awaken to the fact that we are in control of this paradigm shift that is happening on our planet. But, a lot of people don’t understand what a paradigm is…and when a paradigm is coming into existence, it’s like the biggest deal there is!

We no longer live in a 3-D reality…that is the boundaries and limitations that we all grew up with; that scarcity mentality, that “we’ll have to fight for what we want,” those walls have come down!

In this new fourth dimension paradigm, your creativity will be what shapes this new world we are now living in.  There won’t be any more cookie cutter people created, all wearing the latest fashions of the season, doing the same popular things in order to be accepted. No more disguises or masks!

No more cookie cutter retail stores that were designed to take our money in the most offensive, filthy, vulgar, ways possible.

No more education systems that kill the sense of inner passion to learn, or go after what we are interested in, and create mere puppets on the corporate stage who can’t think independently, and for themselves.

Yes, the collective consciousness of humanity is vibrating at a higher level now. This is great news! Let this new paradigm encourage you to find your gifts and use them in service to others.

You must protect your hopes and dreams at all costs. If you do, you will soon find out that this Kingdom is magical!

How To Go From ‘Why me?’ To ‘Why not me?’


“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.”
…Ryunosuke Satoro


I am only now getting over this cold thing that has taken hold of me and held on for dear life! Needless to say I have not been at my best, most optimistic self.

I’ve had nasty, negative thoughts. A mean-spirited disposition. There didn’t seem to be anything that could rally me out of these doldrums. And, that is when I realized that Holy Cow! I must have some vile toxins inside this body of mine.

And it was then, that I decided to surrender. You see, I was fighting this cold. I was resisting what my body was telling me and I just kept going. Those toxins needed to get out. They were interfering with the harmony and natural balance of my energy system. So, I hunkered down, holed up, and listened to the whispers of my own body.

And, these words came back to me. Whatever you fight you strengthen. Whatever you resist, persists. And, whatever you fear, you draw near.

I initiated that first step when I made the choice to surrender and allow myself to heal. The Universe then reciprocated, opened her arms and….

gave me my daughter who helped me to heal by just being there with me.

For, it wasn’t until my daughter called and told me she was on her way over that I actually started to feel better. We spent the afternoon picking out a tree for the holidays. We baked Christmas goodies. We ate dinner by the fire. We drank wine and watched a Christmas classic. And, when I ran out of steam, she took over.

We forget sometimes, when we are down on our luck, or tired of all the insanity in this world, that we are not alone. Ever. Sure, we can sit there and wallow in our own misery. But, that just keeps us forever drowning.

It’s not until we consciously opt to do something good for ourselves, without knowing what the outcome will be, fully aware that there are no guarantees…that we can really reap the  rewards for not only ourselves, but for all of humanity.

I know that there is more I certainly need to do, but there is a stirring happening out there. I am a witness to all this insanity sure, but I am also seeing a growing enlightenment. I know this much for sure. We are all connected. And, we need to collectively clear away that which is no longer serving us through our own individual efforts ie. planting or making a sacrifice to Mother Earth and, by coming together and taking a stand for the land we live on wherever we are.

People are restless and the establishment is imploding. Consciousness is peaking through and for some it’s like a light switch has been thrown on!

I know too, that if it’s happening to me, it’s happening to others.

There are many people now bringing their wisdom forward to help further consciousness. And, I am very thankful for that. It’s working. It’s epic!
