The Blank Page

We were all a blank page once in the eye of the Creator. Our Creator filled us with star dust from the Milky Way, some Fairy dust from several large meadows, fire from the Sun and Air from the bluest skies. Then Creator set us each with intentions for each lifetime: learn to nurture another by becoming a mother, learn the value of freedom by becoming a soldier, uncover the secrets of the earth by becoming a scientist, be amazed at the power of numbers by becoming an accountant…and so on… And then the important purposes we were created for: have the passion and insight to always seek your personal truth, become keen in seeing what is real and what is an illusion, learn what is love and what is not, value yourself and know your worth, show compassion to yourself and others, stand in your personal power with integrity and self love, see Me in all things…in all moments…know yourself and love yourself, so that you may know Me and my deep pure love for you.

Then we were born into this life, set with intentions, set with our missions, armed with our heart and our intuition, which are always connected back to the womb of the Universe. Our Creator only wrote the first page of our Book of Life. The rest has been given to us to create as we please. So, the question now is…how am I doing?

I’ve never been good at puzzles and putting pieces together…I believe I failed that in kindergarten. Yet in kindergarten I already knew I was to be an artist and that my art was a gift to be used to do good, which I do now. I also felt called to be a nurse–hence, the energy healer that I am today. Not bad insight for a 5 year old. Now, in my early 50s it’s become much more complex and confusing. How did this happen? It all seemed so clear when I was 5 years old! There appears to be so many choices, but with road blocks, detours, steep hills and dark alleyways to get to success, peace and fulfillment in love.

I keep bringing myself back to the knowing that we are all creators of our life. I have a blank page (for me a blank canvas), that calls to me with each new day. It doesn’t matter my method of creating…writing, singing, dictating, dancing, scribbling, coloring in or outside of the lines. It’s being very sensitive and aware to the ways that I create best. It’s done with thoughts, emotions, words, actions and deeds. It’s looking at how we serve ourselves, not always others. It’s taking a deep, long hard look at who we have become and really being clear on who we prefer to be. Loving our shadow self is the only way to let our Love–our true colors–shine through. It’s sitting down with our self and a large blank sheet of paper, coming up with a goal and a plan…baby steps are fine to start with…then embracing the process. Everything happens to show us who we are, what we are capable of and to find our way back to Source.

I’m at a place in my life I never thought I would be. And it’s between laughing and crying, dancing in the rain and running under a rock, holding myself with love and worrying when I will find that perfect soul to hold me in his arms in deep love at night. I, along with you, need to look at my blank page objectively and openly, what am I creating? Can I go that deep?

Many blessings…may the harvest of this month of October be bountiful for you! Thank you for your continued loving support.

No More Fear Soup

 

 

 

 

 

F.E.A.R.

What if…..

I’m not good enough…I’m not qualified enough…not pretty enough…not thin enough…not strong enough…not rich enough…not smart enough…not creative enough…original enough…what if I’m not lovable…fun enough?…will ever be happy enough…what if I never meet the One Love for this Lifetime?…what happens if I stay stuck in negative patterns?…how can I get rid of this dark cloud following me?…what if no matter how hard I try I don’t heal my heart?…what if I grow old alone?…if I miss that grand opening of opportunity in my Life and it passes me by?…what if I don’t recognize an Angel if I see one?…what if my parents never really wanted me to come into this world?…what if following my dreams I lose it all?

False Evidence Appearing Real

What if…

I’m better than good enough…my skills are an exact fit for an awesome new opportunity…I’m stronger and more courageous than ever…I receive recognition for being original and creative…I forgive myself and fully heal my mind, body and heart…that I open to Love as a possibility for me and I don’t have to settle…that I truly Love myself and can have healthy, supportive, loving relationships with others…that I do have clarity and can trust my intuition to guide me…that the Universe supports me always and brings a continuous flow of opportunities for my Lifetime…I was meant to be here and I make a difference in the world…that my Life and Soul are filled with joyful experiences…I feel fulfilled by enjoying being with me…that I see an Angel every time I look in the mirror and into the eyes of each Soul that I meet…that I follow my dreams and can have it all and beyond my wildest imagination?

Reality is an interesting mirror of beliefs, lessons, needs, and growth. As we continue to learn how we create our reality and actively participate, we begin to learn what we truly wish to experience and how to obtain it. There’s our perception of our reality and the bigger picture of our reality. Start with finding your truth, feeling it in your Heart then seeing it in your daydreams. Notice what you are focusing on: such as instead of purely manifesting money perhaps focus on manifesting abundant prosperity and more value in your Life. And set that intention out to the cosmos as if you have already received it “I am experiencing abundant prosperity and value in my Life”. Remember to express and see gratitude in the present moment. And check in that your intentions are not filled with the energy of desperation or fear. Keep it as clear as possible. Trust the Universe will support you and allow for the time and process to occur. It may show itself in small steps at first, but you will get your signs that manifesting is occurring.

Does this mean don’t get angry at God? Don’t cry? No time for questioning “why me”? We are human after all. Yes, Spirit understands your frustration. Anger expressed constructively can be a forward moving energy. Tears need to fall sometimes as we all need to release. And by all means, ask questions–seek answers. It’s knowing that during the dark night of the Soul, which many people see themselves in right now, that you are still in your power, you are still supported and there are still endless possibilities. It’s working with what you’ve got right now-to succeed the best you can in this moment. To build up your reserve of joy and give yourself moments of relief as much as you can. Cultivate hope and faith in yourself-never give up on you.

I believe in you-and your dreams. Thank you to all for your support and belief in me. Sending you blessings for an awesome new beginning to all who are seeking.

Human Spirituality

 

Sitting with arms open, legs crossed and the deep chant of OM…the scent of incense, the feeling of Lightness and Joy, deep Peace and connection to the Divine…feeling fully present and filled with Love for the whole world…everything in my Life is as it should be and I am in awe of my path in alignment with the Universe…

Yep, that’s a snippet of the image some of us have of a spiritual person in alignment with their spiritual journey. That everything else is just a sign how off the path we are, how out of touch with the Divine we are…and how much we just suck at being a spiritual person, right?

Not everyone gets to be a guru, sitting on a mountainside apart from the world, giving profound insight about G_d and how we should be living to gain eternal enlightenment. The gurus may be here to bring insights of the Divine to our world, but the rest of us are the ones making Life happen. What does it look like to you, to be Spiritual, as you are, in the present moment?

Enlightenment looks different for everyone. It is sought for differently by everyone. It arrives differently for everyone. We are ALL on the path to enlightenment–we are ALL spiritual. No exceptions. That’s an important fact to remember, when your neighbor is cutting their grass at 8am on Sunday. Or your boss barely grunts a good morning response to you, no matter how many times you cheerfully say it to him : )  It’s a human response wanting to scream choice four letter words over the fence or to daydream outshining your boss and getting his job. Call that being spiritual? Key point: you are a spiritual being having a human experience. That’s why we are here. To create, to experience, so that we expand and seek the divine.

So it’s not about “how hard” you work to be spiritual (you may even be trying too hard), nor how many rituals or prayers you say or the number of books you read, or how many retreats you attend that make you more connected to your Soul. Of course, keep growing, keep praying, keep learning. But also learn about BEING and BECOMING AUTHENTICALLY YOU. YOUR BEST SELF. Discover who you truly are and love yourself as you. It’s about shining your Light everyday in a million little ways (and that is good enough, when it’s all you can do, right now)…it’s being kind to yourself, forgiving of yourself and having faith in yourself. Honor your human spirit and your story, which you are creating every day. (What are you “writing” with your thoughts, words and actions?) Acknowledge that others are also creating their story. Share your stories. It will help you to embrace and understand each other. It will help you to better support each other and see the Divine Spirit in each other, even on a “bad hair” day.

Ask yourself, “How do I see myself as Divine?” Are your Divine goals kind and supportive to you, and others? Are you open to your Divine connection? Do you have faith in yourself as Divine and allow this energy to flow, as is, while accepting your human qualities?

Where can you begin?

REIKI PRINCIPALS: Just for today, do not anger…Just for today do not worry…Just for today honor your parents, teachers and elders…Just for today earn your living honestly…Just for today show gratitude to every living thing.

Take it one day at a time, one step at a time and aspire to Human Spirituality, which is the Divine Spirit you already are!

Many Blessings,
Donna

An Archangel Michael Prayer For Guidance, Protection & Support

 

 

Freedom

Happy Independence Day! It’s the Heart of summer…embracing sunshine, finding relief from the heat, looking to connect with friends and being a part of a crowd attending community celebrations. So, how do you define freedom for you?

For me, it’s finding freedom from the attachments and beliefs that have held me back for too long. It’s forgiving myself for past mistakes, seeing failures as lessons, being open to learning who I am and having faith I am guided to what I need to do and authentic about who I am–all parts of myself. That I am worthy of the best Life has to offer–and it is already here. I also still engage in the process of forgiving others…my last boyfriend for cheating, my parent for being absent at trying times when growing up, a friend who let me down and some friends who are no longer in my Life without a good bye and though I know it’s because we are in different places and we no longer serve each other…it can still feel like a hole that hasn’t yet closed. (Such a good lesson in learning to accept, detach and go with Life’s flow.)

Many of us have lived with guilt, others expectations of us, a loved ones concept of what’s best for us…and it stops us from our full potential. Many of us have too high expectations of ourselves, impossible expectations of others we “love”, illusions and excuses for relationships that aren’t healthy or for our highest good…because deep inside we believe no one else will love us, or letting go means we failed and once again find ourselves alone. We build our excuses, write our stories, build our cages around ourselves. Is that freedom to be? Is that living? Are we our true self?

Life is about creating our experience…so what are you creating? It’s about learning who we really are…so who are you, truly? We need to discern our personal consciousness from the global consciousness. Change and true freedom begin from within. When you know clearly what you want, accept clearly who you are and can come from the freedom to be YOU, then whatever does not conform to your platform will fade so that new and more fitting people, places and situations can come in. There is a leap of Faith being called for here. Trusting it will be freeing to be in your truth…to love who you are as you are. BE (action) the change you wish to see…when you are in alignment with your truth, your world will change accordingly. It may take time to grow roots–but it will be set in motion.

So, please see how you let outside beliefs and influences keep you from your freedom to be. See how you CAN make positive changes to yourself and your Life. (Small steps to start are fine!) Note how you may create well-intended cages for others in your Life you care about–but keep someone from their freedom to find their own path. Recognize how you may be letting others drain you of your energy and Heart by taking on their drama and challenges as your own, when the best support you can give is what can bring you balance…if you’re not in balance for yourself, how can you be balance for someone else? Only they can discover their true self and what is best for them. You can give support and guidance, love without judgement…but not take on their problems. You have every right to be in freedom…which is joy, truth, ease, peace and calm.

I wish for you the FREEDOM to create joyful change in your Life, to be authentic in your TRUTH and to LOVE yourself and all aspects of your world. You are powerful…a drop of water in a pond goes quite far. Thank you and I honor you! Have a blessed weekend honoring positive change…let freedom ring!

Blessings, Donna

Summer Living

 

We are here! Longer days, starry nights, outdoor adventures, trips to the beach, parades, parks, festivals, outdoor concerts, vacation, sunrises and sunsets, barbecues, sail boats, camp fires… It’s summertime and the living is about being EASY! Coming out of your house, out of your shell, soaking up sunshine and breathing in fresh air. Take in sights, sounds and any place in nature as Mother Earth is at her peak.

“The summer solstice is a time to celebrate the Light of Consciousness within ourselves and within each and every person, and to reflect the potential for consciousness awakening.” http://belsebuub.com/articles/the-spiritual-meaning-of-the-summer-solstice

This is the time to shine, to get out of our own way and connect with the activity of Life, before Fall and Winter are upon us again. Give yourself a lazy summer day, a time to relax and slow down. Reconnect with friends you haven’t seen in a while. Go to the beach with that good book you’ve been meaning to finish. Find a festival and people watch-feel that you are one with everyone. (Sometimes you have your best experiences when it’s just you.) And another thing great about summer? A lot of activities are free–or a small fee. It doesn’t have to be costly. Life is beckoning you to find a way to create a fun memory, an enjoyable experience. To fill your cup with something you can savor for awhile. So dust off your flip flops, get out the sunscreen, grab a map–pick a spot about an hour from you–and go!

Let your Light shine. Merge your Light with that of the Sun. Become aware of YOU. Who you are and who you wish to become. Grow in the Light and fresh air, just as nature does…naturally, being your authentic self and being proud of it. Get outdoors and experience the wonder of summer…don’t let it pass you by. Give yourself permission, even if it’s one day a week, one hour a week, to have fun in the Sun and feel connected to the all…and to all it’s possibilities.

It can be a crazy, demanding world at this time…and for many time feels in short supply and it’s a challenging lesson making friends with time and letting ourselves be a priority. (I so understand!) We need to create the change we desire…and have Faith that we can. When we create our Life for our higher good, it has a ripple effect that circles the world a thousand times over. Take a moment to breathe, to connect, to enjoy this season of shining your Light for YOU.

Blessings…peace and joy to each one of you. Thank you for reading my blog and being a part of this Journey.

Angel Messages

I have been discovering how important taking 5 minutes a day to meditate can be:

 

I have also noticed I need to clear my house more often. (Gratitude to you, Audrey!) Check in with yourself and see if your area needs a space clearing:

http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-4398/Easy-Way-to-Cleanse-Your-Home-of-Negative-Energy.html

When Should You Space Cleanse?
The following situations are appropriate times to space cleanse:
After you remove clutter
After an argument
When you move into a new space
When a roommate or companion moves out
After a divorce or break-up
After an illness or death
When you buy an antique or second-hand item
Anytime you desire fresh energy for a new project or beginning.
Before implementing feng shui
How to Cleanse a Space:
Here is a simple space-cleansing technique to perform on your home, office, or even on a specific object:
• Create a strong intention in your mind to clear the space in order to bring in vibrant, healthy energy.
• Burn sandalwood incense or dried sage to disintegrate the negative energy in each room.  (Buy incense from India, Japan or China as the energy is stronger.) Wave it counterclockwise in each corner, closet, and cabinet. You may also let one stick burn in each room. Say, “Thank you for the complete disintegration of all negative energies, thoughts, and  emotions from this room now.”
• After cleansing, always open East windows and doors to allow fresh energy of the sun to enter.
• Light a candle to dedicate energy to your endeavors. Say your wish out loud. For example, “I am so grateful for all the love, harmony, and healthy energy pouring into my home right now.”
• Imagine brilliant white light filling the whole space. Visualize your home or office as a shining star emanating light, positive energy and blessing to everyone who enters.

 

 

 

You are a miracle

It’s cold and rainy for the first day in May, as I write this wearing a winter sweater, crank up the heat and my little dog Amber can’t curl herself tight enough into a ball on top of her paw print blanket to get warm. The hot days of summer will be here soon enough, so there is a blessing in appreciating the anticipation of beach days, outdoor festivals and tan lines.

Over the past two years, many times the question people have for their Soul is “am I living my Life the right way? Am I truly connected to the Divine?” So many of us are being challenged, our faith tested. I know how that feels, as I am right there searching in the trenches with an aching heart right along side of you. Yet I know, the Divine is always there with us, loving us, helping us. It may not seem so, but Spirit always shows me this is so…no matter who you are. We are so very deeply Loved and never alone. Separation is an illusion, a very real seeming illusion. It is in the separation that we are compelled to seek our Truth and seek the Divine.

We are in a period of spiritual growth right now-NO ONE is immune, whether you believe in Spirit or not. Some may term this time the Ascension, the Quickening, the Awakening. We don’t have to put a label on it to see and feel we are all being pushed hard out of our comfort zone, lack of security and balance, experiencing peace and calm more in moments rather than days. The old ways of dealing with crisis don’t apply any more. As we are pushed and pulled to change and awaken to a “new earth”, it begins with a new you. It requires you to deeply examine your belief systems, your reactions and what matters most to you.

The one insight that always seems to come up is this:  you are here to grow and create. You are loved by the Universe and you are always supported where you are at. Life is not about the doing, it is about being. To learn your personal truth, to learn who you truly are–all parts–Light and Dark–and love all of YOU. Ask for guidance from the Heavens when you are in crisis. Be open and honor what you receive. Be patient if the answer does not come in the manner or timing you request. Talk to your Angels or Guides and form a daily relationship, not just when you have troubles. You are created by G_d in His image and with Love, why don’t you see what you are worth, which is priceless?

From the book “The Greatest Miracle in the World” by OG Mandino it has a chapter “The God Memorandum”, which is a thick chapter that gives hopes and insight from God and sums up the message here. I have shared a few snippets here, as I was guided to include, so that you may know:

Take counsel. I hear your cry.

It passes through the darkness, filters through the clouds, mingles with starlight and finds its way to my heart on the path of a sunbeam… You are my finest creation. I gave you the power to think, to love, to will, to laugh, to imagine, to create, to plan, to speak, to pray. My pride in you knew no bounds. You were my ultimate creation, my greatest miracle.

Thus we come to the fourth law of success and happiness…a power so great that not even my Angels possess it.  I gave you the power to choose. You are more than a human being…you are a human becoming. You are capable of great wonders.

Why have you valued yourself in pennies when you are worth a king’s ransom? Why did you listen to those who demeaned you…and far worse…why did you believe them?

You have been born again…but just as before, you can choose failure and despair or success and happiness. The choice is exclusively yours. I can only watch, as before…in pride…or sorrow.

The four laws of happiness are:

Count your blessings.  Proclaim your rarity.  Go another mile.  Use wisely your power of choice.

And one more, to fulfill the other four. Do all things with love…love for yourself, love for all others and love for me. Wipe away your tears. Reach out, grasp my hand, and stand straight. Let me cut the grave cloths that have bound you. This day you have been notified: You are the Greatest Miracle in the World.

Blessings and honor to each of you, a precious treasure. Together in this lifetime, many before, and many more to follow, we are on this journey. With gratitude I thank you for walking this path with me.

April’s Fool

 

We always think of the Fool as someone not very smart, very naive and always getting into some mess or trouble due to their lack of awareness and caution in Life. But if I were to reference the Tarot card of the Fool, it can mean some positive things. The Fool is also open and looks at Life with wonder, not letting the past get in the way of one’s dreams and aspirations. This card can also represent new beginnings–which I would welcome, as Life appears to be stuck for me at this time! This is also the first card in the deck, which can prompt us to look forward and plan ahead…where do we want to go? Create…experience? It’s the card of creating a vision from your Heart, not your intellect.

This month is about duality and riding “waves”. (Our weather lately is illuminating the energy accurately!)  I found two quotes to keep in mind as we hold on to this bumpy ride into spring:

Action is creation, and creation is Love, and Love is the way of the Universe.

Albert Einstein. “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle”.

At this time, we are all being asked to review our fears, be our true selves and have faith in something greater than ourselves. Pay attention: thoughts become things. Thoughts become beliefs, become energy, become reality. This isn’t about not being human or never having a negative thought. It is about awareness and being selective as to where we give our energy to and how we have created our beliefs. It’s time to dig deep and really see ourselves, and also love ourselves as we truly are–not what we have been taught by other people or a negative experience. We have an opportunity to forgive the past, forgive ourselves and create more positive, supportive, nurturing beliefs and positive patterns in our lives. (Me too!)

So if you feel like a “fool” at any time this month, step back and choose with awareness which belief you will have about that moment–again, it can be a gift!

I hope this helps everyone to ease into this month. We all have our own personal experiences and we all read things differently. Whatever your Life’s experiences, know you are valued, a creation from the Spirit of Love, a Master in Life and the world would not be the same without you here. Blessings to all of you from the highest place in my Heart.
