    May The Light Source Be With You

    Saturday, March 3, 2012, 8:48 AM [General]

    What if you were to uncover a magical power that could allow you to create the life you dream of? This was a force so powerful and expansive that its full potential was beyond the scope of human comprehension. Then you discovered that it constantly surrounded you, even though it could not be seen and you could harness it, tap into it and use it to create your own destiny?

    The self-help genre is booming. This tells me one important fact: many people are discontented with their lives and are searching for the secrets of having the perfect relationship, health, or even financial status. I have tried them all—affirmations, visualization, you name it. Via my journey through self-help, I came up with one conclusion: guidebooks for happiness are merely implementations of a dominant universal power, only ways to execute a supreme force.

    The transformational dynamism I am speaking of is Source Energy. It is from where we all came, where we are now, and where we will someday return. It is all encompassing and knows no boundaries of time and space. Once I discovered this, I finally understood; Source Energy is my Source; therefore, as an extension of it, I also should have no fears or limitations. I realized that the only fears or limitations in my life were those that I had placed myself. Then came the ultimate question, since Source Energy is all there is, in what form it did I want to incorporate Source Energy into my life?


    The most magnificent aspect of Source Energy is that you have the power to harness it and use it at will. However, since Source Energy is all encompassing, it can be a double-edged sword which contains all the beauty and unconditional love of the universe (Light energy), all the sadness and despair (Dark energy), and, of course, every expression of existence in between the two extremes. This energy creates the human experience and our inherent free will gives us the ability to choose the shade with which we color our life!


    So how do we invoke this magical light force into our lives? We can start by understanding that our world is more energetic than most of us realize and just because we cannot see something with our physical eyes does not mean it is not so. (Case in point) You can’t see gravity either; you can only see its effect.) You can boil it all down into the wise old adage: we reap what we sow. In this manner we are constantly directing Source Energy (be it Light or Dark) into tangible form through our thoughts, emotions, and, most of all, intentions. We can manifest the life we desire consciously or unconsciously, because our thoughts always transform our energy whether we realize it or not. If we are aware of how this works, then we can begin to purposely change our thought and emotional patterns. Just as positive thoughts (drawing in Light energy) create positive outcomes, negative thoughts and emotions (drawing in Dark energy) manifest negative outcomes— all occurring within the natural course of the energetic current.


    Your emotional and intentional state of being aligns with certain types of source energies. For example, Light emotions include love, gratitude, forgiveness, kindness, acceptance, generosity, tolerance, and understanding. The converse emotions include hatred, fear, intolerance, greed, apathy, lust, and envy. Free will allows us the choice of where to align ourselves. This is where the law of attraction comes into play. However, before we can benefit from the law of attraction, we must first work with its core, which is the energy from which we construct the foundation of our existence upon. Harnessing this power is not about semantics, our wording, or affirmations; it is about making continuous conscious choices to align with the lightest polarity of Source Energy possible, a practice which will surely demonstrate that nothing short of miracles will occur!

    Feeling the effects of the Universal Energy Part 2 Shielding

    Sunday, July 31, 2011, 7:04 PM [General]

    Learning how to shield yourself

    Shielding is a vital technique you should practice daily—not only when you sense you need it. (Think of it as an important prevention tool, like taking vitamins or brushing your teeth.) Shielding not only keeps you grounded but also prevents your energy field from absorbing the negative energies around you.

    You can use a variety of techniques to shield yourself, but start with this relatively simple exercise. Later, you can change or adapt it, if you’d like.


    • Picture yourself inside a bubble with a white light from your Higher Power above your head.
    • Envision this white light encircling your entire body, including the bottom of your feet.
    • Tell yourself that this bubble of light shields you from all of life’s anxieties, as well as troubles and dangers.
    • Allow yourself to feel the strength of this protective white light, which is so strong that nothing can penetrate it—so nothing negative can touch you.


    When you then encounter troubles as you go about your day, simply remember your protective bubble and the light-inducing emotions it engenders. This works well when you’re in a crowd of people and feel surrounded by negative energy, as well as if you’re in a conflict at home or work. Anytime you go to a party or other large gathering with lots of people and lots of stimulation, remember to shield yourself first. Shielding yourself before you get into a car (whether you’re driving or just a passenger) is also a good practice.

    Our Divine Mission

    Sunday, July 31, 2011, 6:57 PM [General]

    Conscious thought of the day:  I am free to complete my divine mission.

    We all have one. Many people have a fire in their soul that tells them they must accomplish something and that they are here for a reason. The most difficult thing to understand it that our divine mission was planned before we were even born and there is no need for discovery.  We do have a soul’s plan, one that interacts and intertwines with the plans of others. There is no need to search for our mission; we must simply be to complete it. As we travel along our path, we shift our destiny and ever so slightly (or not so slightly) shift the destiny of those we encounter along the way. There is no need to search for our purpose, we live it each day and we are always free to complete our divine mission.

    Feeling Lost

    Thursday, July 28, 2011, 8:19 AM [General]

    Many of us feel empty, misplaced or adrift when we live day to day wondering why things happen as they do what the meaning of it all is. We search for our life purpose and constantly ask the universe, why am I here, what am I supposed to be doing. Is the purpose predestined or already planned out by God? Do we pick our own purpose? Are the events of your life all random and by chance? My answer is a little of all these. Life is a combination of plan, chance and destiny all rolled into one. One of my favorite sayings is “God creates the map and I choose the road.” In other words our Source creator sets us on a certain course with many situations that we can choose from.  Different paths on the map will take us to different destinations and interactions with many diverse people. As we move along our course, we alter our own lives and the lives of those we intermingle with, always shifting our journey as we go along and the journey of others at the same time. It’s kind of mind boggling to think of the trillions of scenarios plotted out within the landscape of your life. But this is the adventure that is free will, never really knowing the destination or the outcome at the end of each road we take. It's  all part of the fluidity of life and the sooner we learn to flow with it the better off we are. Searching for your life purpose can feel like setting out on a road trip with no destination. Aimlessly driving and coming to dead ends, detours and pot holes. Life is never one smooth course and the irony is that these dead ends, detours and pot holes enrich our lives and accelerate our spiritual growth. If we learn our lessons well, they will give us a sturdier constitution and impart us many valuable lessons that will allow us (when divine timing intervenes) to finally understand that we truly do live a meaningful existence, by just being our authentic selves. Living your life purpose is living your life with high intentions and from a place of gratitude for all the bumps in the road.  Being ever mindful that all is exactly as it should be and trusting that we all have a divine internal compass to help us on the roads we choose, so we can never truly be lost.

    Energetic Harvesting

    Friday, July 8, 2011, 9:46 AM [General]

    Right now there is a certain situation all over the news that is sparking outrage within many people. This anger is a natural reaction and to be expected, but let's look at what has happened from an energetic standpoint, something other than the human perspective. Within God's unconditional love, there is no injustice. There is no right or wrong. Above all things the energy that fuels the universe is in perfect balance at all times. Understanding what that means helps us look at a bigger picture. When we see a wrong we feel responsible to make it right, or take action, when the real truth is, action has already been taken and it is not our responsiblity. Our Source creator does not seek out retribution or punishment, we have free will to do as we wish, but we will reap the energetic consequences through cause and effect.  Since what we put out into the universe through our thoughts, actions and most of all intentions will eventually find it's way back to us all within the natural flow of universal energy, justice will always be done. The old adage we reap what we sow in a universal truth and when it comes time to harvest, we experience the affects.  By yelling and ranting that an outcome is not the one we desire, we only put out more negativity and in turn drawing this type of energy into our own lives. We need to look at the bigger picture and see that balance is always present within the energetic flow of the universe. And although an outcome is not what we desire, and on the surface it appears justice has not been served, be certain the scales of the universe will always be in balance and the law of attraction will prevail. So instead of being angry or outraged, send thoughts of love and forgiveness to someone you feel has erred and know that you too will reap as you sow and in some way that love and forgiveness will come back to you.

    God's Casual Replies

    Thursday, July 7, 2011, 8:25 PM [General]

    Today as I was driving and listening to the radio there came on the John Denver song Rocky Mountain High. I love John Denver so I turned it up and began to sing along as I drove to pick up my groceries. Unaware of anything in particular, suddenly I became very consciously aware of one line in the song I never took notice of. John Denver sang, "You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply." I started to wonder about the many suttle signs from God each day that I never take notice of. Signs of guidance and direction, signs that would keep me going, and signs that I am loved and supported in every step I take.

    When I thought about the John Denver lyric, I realized, these signs don't have to strike like lightening bolts in anyway. You can find them everywhere, like in the beauty of a flower, the laughter of a child or the quiet solitude of your own thoughts. When we ask for a sign from God, the sign comes, but usually we are too wrapped up in our own fears to see or hear them. Putting the fears and the mind chatter aside is difficult, but not impossible and the more we raise our awareness to the divine guidance that is present each and every day of our lives the more direction we garner on the footpath of our soul's journey.  I had a friend who was so discontent with her own life she found it a struggle to get up each morning to begin another day. Her job was mundane, her relationships troubled and her existence felt meaningless. Each day though as she drove the long highway to work, headed to a cubicle and feeling hopeless, she passed a forty foot billboard that read, "Peace Corps, Changing Lives" Not once did she ever take notice of that sign and comprehend it as a sign from God. She didn't necessarily need to run off to Calcutta and become the next Mother Teresa, but the universe was showing her there is always a chance to change your life, make it better, there is always hope.

    There are times you ask for help and the reply is not so casual. I was having a particularly difficult time last year, fighting my ex spouse in court over child support issues. These types of confrontations are so painful for me and I needed some guidance and got it in a dramatic way. One day I was on my way to meet my lawyer and was about to drive into the complex where his office is located. All of a sudden, a huge hawk with a big black rat in his talons flew out from the side of the highway and slammed into my truck! He dropped the rat in the road and kept on flying. Although he had struck the corner of my roof and windshield pretty hard, he didn’t break the glass. It was such an arresting experience I knew right away it was a sign. I took it as a message that the rat in my life, my ex, would be cast off. But then I looked deeper and got more guidance. A friend reminded me that hawk is a powerful, Native American totem that is in itself a sign that a message from Spirit is coming. Birds are masters of flight and can usually avoid vehicles—but in this case, the hawk had not fully factored in the weight of the rat. That understanding led to another message: In order to clear obstacles safely, I will first have to let go of whatever dead things I am carrying in my life. Then I looked at where the hawk had hit my car—where the roof and windshield met. The roof, to me, symbolizes the highest level. This message clearly held strong spiritual importance. The windshield is what you see out of, so the message also had to do with the importance of maintaining clear sight. Every time I peeled back another layer of the message, I got a better understanding of my situation and what I needed to do to make it through a difficult time in my life.

    These signs can come via messengers who make a strong impact, like my friend the Hawk, (who I gave thanks to for giving his life to deliver my message) or a soft melody like the John Denver song. No matter how they come, live each day with the ultimate knowing that God will answer your calling and you will hear if you keep your awareness level raised. And remember the next time you do talk to God to listen for the casual reply.

    How Can You Be a Lightworker?

    Wednesday, July 6, 2011, 12:53 PM [General]

    Many people come to me confused and ask what is a Lightworker. Lightworkers have come throughout history to guide, teach and enlighten when needed. At the present time, a literal army of Lightworkers is arriving on the planet due to global issues that are rapidly spinning out of control and becoming a serious threat to humanity.

     Lightworkers aren’t all great spiritual gurus or even political leaders—they may be musicians or artists, shopkeepers or accountants, stay-at-home moms or homeless folks. Although it’s not always obvious who these Lightworkers are or easy to understand the qualities that make them different, one thing is certain: the Earth is more in need of these Lightworkers at this point in time than ever before.

    Lightworkers are souls who have worked very hard to align themselves with the light energy of the universe. Not everyone is a Lightworker, obviously the world would not be in the state it is today if everyone were. Many choose to align with the darker side of universal energy and without judgment the universe allows them their choice and still offers unconditional love, because that is all Source knows. The light of God is available for us all; it is our choice to work within that light or not.

    There are many ways to share light with the world. Creating beauty such as art, literature or even music is a wonderful way to share light. Bob Marley and John Lennon whose music spoke of peace and love were wonderful Lightworkers who enlightened millions of people on the earth. Then there are artists like Vincent Van Gogh whose artwork is a brilliant display with universal love and light. There are many ways to share light energy with the world that are simple. Offering a prayer, a smile or even a positive thought sent out to someone are easy ways to share light energy. When that prayer or thought goes out, the light energy spreads throughout the entire universe like ripples in a pond when a stone is thrown into it. Lightwork is not all that complicated, it is simply a matter of where you choose to align yourself and when you choose to align with the light energy of God, you generate more light for not only yourself, but for all of humanity.

    Seeing fireworks for the first time...again.

    Monday, July 4, 2011, 8:46 AM [General]

    July picnics, barbecues and fireworks. Every year my family would have a fireworks show and barbeque at my grandmother's house. Half the town would show up. When the sun went down my cousins and I would all sit on a blanket on the grass and watch the night sky light up and explode with color! It was such a thrill. Later as a teen the we would head down to the New Jersey Shore, it was an exciting place where many of us got our first kiss on the beach or under the boardwalk. The wonder of growing up, the excitement of living life and experiencing things for the first time. Now I get to see my little girls eyes light up as she watches the fireworks with me. So the cycle of life continues. I ask myself how do I keep that wonder and excitement in my life now? Why does it have to end when we’re ten? This world is so full of beautiful things, magical things. Why not take the time to try and reach back and find that little child inside who was so fascinated by a caterpillar’s cocoon? The hope of what magnificence would emerge made us believe in magic! So this July 4th, go watch the fireworks like it was the very first time, sneak off and steal a kiss from your loved one and remember that life can bring wonder and joy at any age!

    Ocean Therapy

    Sunday, July 3, 2011, 9:09 PM [General]

    Now is the time of year I take a trip to the ocean and just reflect. The ocean and water in general always has such a healing affect on me, but to just sit and look at the ocean and the awesomeness of it all symbolizes how mighty the universe and our creator is. As I watch the tide go in and out I see it as such a metaphor for my life. I am constantly being pushed and pulled by a universal power that is continuously moving, transforming and most importantly carrying me. I realize if I stop the flow, I become stagnant or if I fight the flow I will eventually be pulled under and drown. So, like the waves I have no choice but to allow it to move me with ultimate faith and trust. As humbling as it all is, it puts my life, my existence and my need to control things into perspective. A big part of my ocean therapy is seeing and remembering how the tide always ends up in the correct place at the correct time and trusting that I will too.

    Dont' Worry, Be Happy!

    Monday, June 27, 2011, 8:28 PM [General]

    Don’t worry, be happy!

    There are many self-help books out now that teach us the secret to a happy life. Do this and you will manifest your desires, do that and you will have a fantastic life, take my advice and be happy. Happy, transformative, juicy, whatever they are calling it now a days, taking in these types of messages sets us up to attempt the impossible and ultimately fail. Maybe that’s the whole idea, because then what do we do? We go out and buy more self-help books!  Unfortunately there are no secret answers that we can find in a book. The fundamentals to happiness and satisfaction in your life are ultimately in both your triumphs and your tragedies. Without experiencing both happiness and sadness, you would never learn to differentiate the two emotional states. Without the light there would be no dark, without profound sadness we would never know profound joy, without suffering loneliness we would never understand the comfort of another. The catch twenty two is that unfortunately at one time or another we need to  to be unhappy in order to one day be happy. Or then again, maybe it’s not so unfortunate. Sadness and obstacles in life bring the most spiritual evolution and emotional progress. As they say what does not kill us will only make us stronger, it could not be truer. As we labor our way through life’s struggles we exercise our faith muscle, we grow sturdier and tougher and as we scuffle with our existence and take  one more of life’s left hooks to the jaw; we come to appreciate the fact that (like the character Rocky Balboa) we can always get back up again. And each time we get back up, we begin to understand more and more that we are supported and unconditionally  loved by a source so great and powerful that all of life’s drama somehow seems trivial. Life is not one big funfest; it’s not supposed to be. Life is fluid and ever-changing, it is cyclical and continuous, and to everything there is a season.  So don’t be so hard on yourself when you feel you fall short. Instead of working on happiness or manifesting, build a strong faith system to support you when times get rough. Next time you don’t feel your life is all it should be, or all that you’re told it should be, be grateful for the bumps in the road and live each day with the absolute knowing that the road ultimately leads to a better place.
