On Friday the 26th the question “Are You Enough?” became the subject as we move forward in these strange energies of 2018.
It is a question that each of us have asked more than once in our lifetimes and as the world becomes seemingly more unstable we find it coming around once again.
For most it begins in childhood and some of us were not so deeply fazed by it, however many are still feeling not worthy on some level of their life experience.
This is the root of our separation and inability to handle deep personal choices.
So not only are we asking Are We Enough but Who Are We in Truth
You are Enough: A Tiny Manual for Being Your True Self
I venture that if there actually were a handbook issued at birth, it might go a little like this:
1. You are a miracle. Never forget this fact. Just the science alone is mind blowing.
2. You are unique. No one will ever be as good at being you as you are. Seriously.
3. You are enough. Always. Never doubt this. There is nothing to add, but feel free to expand.
4. There is always more to learn, but that is not failure; it’s a gift. It can be fun too.
5. Every obstacle is an opportunity to fall further into the miracle that is you.
6. Commit to being the best version of you every day. Recalibrate definition of “best” as needed.
7. Leave room for others when they fall off the wagon of their own miracle.
8. Forgive. Forgive. Forgive. Forgive every which way. Forgive him. Forgive her. Forgive you.
9. Compassion is the key to forgiveness. Compassion means you feel the humanity in others.
10.The more you forgive, the more you’ll enjoy being you, because the lighter your load will be.
11. In the end, as in the beginning: You. Are. Amazing.
Let us remember that 2018 is all about Truth in both aspects of owning it ourselves and holding others to be honorable in theirs. In this we are being guided to truly look deeper into ourselves and let go of the stories which have held us prisoner.
This talk came about after a week of energy shifts which were not expected at this point in my current experience. In fact they had me questioning everything as I felt a deep sense of separation within myself.
So on Friday morning as I arose I had no topic to speak on and little apparent guidance from my beautiful Spirit Team.
This doesn’t happen very often and when it does it is usually a sign of a great shifting into another level of Self Acceptance.
As much inner turmoil as this can create do not despair, for when this happens the realization comes that it is always up to us as Soul Beings to make the final decisions on what happens to us…
No matter how we may not think we are capable or have enough wisdom to do so.
So we just need to relax, sit in stillness for a while and then move forward into the unknown, embracing fully all that comes.
I then reached for a book on my desk called “The Silence Of The Mind” which is a translation of the writings of Ilie Cioara written by Petrica Verdes in 2011.
“Ilie Cioara was an enlightened mystic who lived in Eastern Europe. His writing describes the experience of meditation and enlightenment, as well as the practice of Self-Knowing using all-encompassing Attention.” (Back Cover)

This morning I awakened from what we commonly call a nightmare and found it difficult to shake off quickly, which is something I’m pretty good at.
My usual greeting of the day with a Thank You for being here, was not to be found nor heard.
Knowing that dreams are in many ways messages from our sub and super consciousness, this one has certainly become one to write about. So I begin…
In brief, I was with two young boys at the beach as their chaperone, or in the least I was responsible for them and not their parent. They left me to go explore a house by the water which was more like a barn and was having some sort of festival on the grounds.
I did not go with them but told them where I would be so they could meet me when they were finished. As I watched them walk down the hill, I felt how proud I was that they were becoming self-reliant and was pleased at their growing maturity.
After a while I began to worry, as they had not returned and when I went to look for them they were not to be found. So of course, fear and panic ensued and I was now searching everywhere and blaming myself for trusting that they would be OK on their own.
Finally I woke up and I immediately looked up dreams about children and death as I was certainly feeling that deep emotional sense of loss and liability.
I won’t belabor the story or the state of chaos which ensued. As you can imagine it was horrifying, but it did dissipate and left me pretty emotionally triggered.
Oh the mind just can’t let go of anything now, can it? It just ruminates in the background keeping our energy hostage.
In the end… no specific answer was found to resolve my feeling of how I might perhaps be failing my own responsibility of “encouraging and inspiring others”.
That message was brought to me yesterday morning after a brief centering into my heart and asking of what truly brings me Joy.
And Yes, we all have those moments of where we need to sit quietly and contemplate our sense of Self.
Especially since I had died 26 years ago and was now really feeling the new energies of 2018 calling me forward, to really represent who I truly am.
As my New Moon morning now rolled on, someone on Facebook asked me about one of my Bumper Stickers “Practice Unlimitedness” and it became the inspiration to begin this blog you are now engaged in.
The picture below is a group of nine bumper stickers which I was guided to create by my Angels as I was trying to figure out what was then called my NDE, back in the early 90’s.
People were just investigating this process and I chose to experience what was happening within me rather than listen to the label makers, who were collecting data and categorizing it for their various modalities.
They were created shortly after my motorcycle accident when I had no money, little understanding of myself or life, living alone and on the goodwill others towards me after a period of divorce, bankruptcy, alcoholism and homelessness.
SO… how does a Nightmare, Practice Unlimitedness and Saving Grace all come together in a blog…
The nightmare was the energy which set it all in motion, a friend asking about that particular bumper sticker and the Gratitude I have for being here now to express it all.
What does it mean to Practice Unlimitedness?
How can we fully understand self-limiting expressions?
Especially when we are so deeply connected to so many of our past experiences that when we begin to shift and move towards fulfilling unlimitedness, we experience nightmares and emotional crisis.
The Message for us all is really all about Saving Grace…
Saving Grace is the only real answer that I can share with you.
The Saving Grace that I actually became when I was returned to what I refer to as my death or return to Original Energy Blueprint… however you may wish to label it.
And so today on this New Moon as we begin not only 2018, but a deepening relationship with ourselves and each other, let us begin to see how Saving Grace has appeared to us in so many ways over our lifetime.
Are we ready to receive it Now “unconditionally, with and in an open heart without conditions” ?
Yes , we have suffered and endured great pains.
We may be experiencing them today in some dramatic form and they may truly be a Nightmare, both physically and emotionally.
And yet, as I now write these words … Bluebirds appeared on my porch in 20 degree weather looking for food…
Such beautiful messengers!
Their message is about happiness and fulfillment which are within reach when we let go of our self-judgement and begin to experience ourselves without letting limitation in any form hold us back from being who we truly are.
So let us now open our hearts…
Let us also appear with a deep desire
and listen to the Messengers of Saving Grace
trusting in our Unlimited Abundance through Grace
so that we also may also understand better
how we can “Practice Unlimitedness”
in all aspects of our daily lives
as we co-create Balance and Harmony
in this world of physical form we are living in
and receive All the Blessings of Peace, Light and Love
Saving Grace to you All and Thank You

Hello all… it seems that 2018 has been a non-stop event for me. Even with my intentions of slowing down and focusing on that deep inner well which has more to bring forth for us all to partake of.
The energies seem to keep swirling and although I AM calm in its midst there seems to be a contraction of time which is truly palpable.
So this week’s words from my Angels and Guides were Replanting Integrity and I feel it is something we are all going to be doing either consciously or perhaps as a result of our just reflecting on all the mirrors in the world who are truly allowing us to see ourselves in a very naked state.
At the end of the show I read a poem which is posted below by Mia Leventhal whose marvelous blog is filled with her wonderful wisdom and words. Kahliya-logue
Rise Whatever is going on Rise Whatever you think Is going on Rise Whatever is clouding your thoughts Rise Whatever others are doing Rise Whatever you are fearing Rise Whatever has happened yesterday Rise Whatever will happen tomorrow Rise And keep Rising Higher Towards your Higher Being Towards the Light of your Creator Towards the Light of All Creation That’s where it’s At That’s where you want to BE That’s where you’re Headed RISE Above and Beyond And you will touch the Glory of the Universe The Magnificence Of Existence RISE
So may each of you listen and replant the seeds of integrity which come forth from your inner depths of beingness and know that you are a part of the Glory of the Universe and your Magnificence is needed for us all to RISE.
As I sit here wondering what I will talk about on my next Presence of Light – Facebook live show on Humanity Healing I hear a song about peace and then get drawn to look up “Grace, Mercy and Peace”
I find an article about the 2nd Letter to Timothy from the Apostle Paul and as I read something calls me to sit deeper with it.
The message is a greeting with a promise of life from God at a time which was very tumultuous for many and perhaps not unlike what we are experiencing right now.
We have fear mongers even making weather reports sound like warfare which I won’t deny could very well be due to technology and geo-engineering but come on people do we need to feel like nature is attacking us.
Maybe they will come up with another Goddess name to make an acronym of a pro nature terrorist group.
Like GAIA for Green Autumn Immortals Alliance.
OK I get a little carried away sometimes but…
Everyone just wants to promote Fear these days.
Grace, Mercy and Peace
What does that feel like to you and how many would know it if we encountered it.
Peace Mercy Grace
So let’s look at them in reverse …
Peace… as the end result and we are experiencing it in fullness.
What would that really feel like… to be peaceful and calm… flowing without agitation
Mercy… to live in a world where compassion and forgiveness was more important than money and stuff
Grace… I recently wrote a guided water meditation where the words “Sweet Grace” arose out of the waters in which we were gathered.
In that moment there was such a sense of Oneness where the group of us meditating became One Drop of Water
So is Grace really the starting point of our existence here in physical form
to which we are always trying to return but have pushed it so far away that it only looks like a far away haze over the horizon?
What if we each decide that 2018 will be our Year of Grace, Mercy and Peace… what would that look like and what would we do to achieve just a slight forward movement towards that as a goal?
Three more words appeared this morning as I awoke and was reading my emails…
in perfect timing to round out this morning’s little chat
Trust Commitment Expression
Trust… can we Trust that all is divinely engineered to bring us to instill in us a stable re-connection to who and what we truly are … ending separation?
Commitment… can we make a serious commitment that won’t be washed away with the next high tide of emotional instability?
Expression… let us awaken our expression of the Grace, Mercy and Peace once again here in this dimension of Self and in doing so Let us bring through the Higher Divine aspects of Ourselves back into the center point of all our actions.
So that we may be the radiant Beings of Light we have always been back into the foreground of human existence and by doing so diminish the shadows which have so temporarily encroached on all life forms here on this amazing Planetary Being we call Earth.
Earth Angels gather now
and bring forth your Light so that All may benefit the Grace, Mercy and Peace
for the restoration of the Fullness of Glorious and Divine Co-Creation
May we fully activate and deepen our communication with each other
and all that we adore as Sacred
recognizing that the beauty and wonder which surrounds us in a gentle breath
is the True Water of Life – Grace expressing itself fully in every moment
May we be the Mercy that transforms and transmutes all that is not in alignment with The Divine Blueprint of Creation
Through our Trusting of that which emanates from our Hearts So that Peace will not be buried beneath the rubble of Greed and callous behaviors where separation rules and true sovereignty has been buried for thousands of years
As we begin our journey into the Year 2018 it is important to deepen our relationship with all water.
Let us begin by quietly dropping our attention into our Hearts.
(Which by the way is about 79% water)
and a magnificent electromagnetic generator
which sustains us in a toroidal field of energy
that is ready for all aspects of our daily physical lives
So this is our Heart, this is the physical process it goes through
but we are going to dive into the Water of our hearts
and learn and relate to more of the deeper spiritual level
So Let us… just relax…
Slowly breathe in the word Water…
and likewise let us slowly exhale the word Water…
inhaling and exhaling slowly
Relaxing, and trusting that in this small sacred circle
of Water Lovers and Guardians
we are a unified field of expanded conscious awareness
Vision yourself walking along a quiet wooded path
away from the hustle and turmoil of everyday existence
listening to the sounds around you change ever so slightly
from a brittle and jarring background noise
to a more rhythmic and gentle flowing orchestration
Listening attentively we walk further and further along
we begin to allow our pace to slow down
knowing that there is a place ahead
where we can sit by a small pond
which is fed by an ancient spring that never ceases
even in the most severe droughts of recorded memory
Relaxing deeper into our natural surroundings as we walk
we begin to feel the dampness in the air we breathe
the warmth of our bodies in motion
and a slight sense of thirst, which we know
will be quenched upon arrival at the springhead
As we continue along this path…
We see a clearing ahead through the trees
and slowly a small pond appears as if rising
from the heart of Mother Earth
almost as if it were an offering,
an offering to us, who are just arriving
Such a welcoming beauty and stillness to behold
as we gently sit on the hand hewn bench
placed so perfectly between the Spring and pond
sitting here, contemplating our arrival
we begin to hear raindrops
gently falling on the leaves above us
as if welcoming us to this Sacred gathering place
Recognize now the full embrace of Water
and hear Her sing so lovingly
a song of Passion for Life in all forms
Allow yourself now to slowly dissolve…
to dissolve into this large gently swirling pool of wetness
being fed warm water from the primordial spring below
while gathering from above, the randomly falling raindrops
this warm pond of Loving Water
much like the Womb Water which held us
and sustained our tiny fragile tiny bodies
and which sustains us in all levels of our existence
Allow yourself to rest peacefully there…
knowing you are safe…
you are home…
you are loved…
As We look up…
A Dolphin appears in the rain clouds and begins to lovingly deliver a message.
within your Creation Stories there has always been Water
You have always been One with Water
You arrived here on Earth via the Water
You are Water Beings living a human existence
Then diving from the clouds
into the water before you
the Dolphin disappears without so much as a ripple
Let us now just feel into this moment of unity
a sense of deep serenity and completion
the serenity of feeling a tension on arrival
yet opening to receive a sense of Grace
as we willingly immerse ourselves in the pond
Immersion is how it has always been done
and perhaps it is but a moment of recognition
where codes are given and identities exchanged
then in an instant the elation of acceptance
a welcoming and an overwhelming sense of completeness
Yes, we are so much more than just the containers for water,
or water guardians,
for We exist on many levels
as We are the Water itself without separation
Gently Feel into that suggestion…
Breath into it…
and allow yourself to surrender
to being water itself
Feel your perception of separation disappear
into a thought which has no value
This circle we began as a group of individuals is now one drop of water
There is no more separation
as we are that one whole drop of water
coming together in this moment of singularity
a tiny yet powerful presence of co-creation
in a pond which flows to become a stream,
perhaps a River, the Sea or the Ocean
all the while in a continued state of evaporation
in order to gather and rain again in another part of the Planet
Rest here now with your open Hearts
and receive the Blessings that Water offers to us
we never know from whence they may come
yet each of us can remember them…
tiny fractal moments
that remind us, of so much more
such beautiful living organisms
that without water, would not exist at all
When you are ready…
Gently feeling into our individual physical embodiment again
let us begin the journey of return
leaving the pond with a Blessing or an Offering of Gratitude
let us visit the Springhead to remind us that we too are primordial
that we are all Ancient Water Carriers
Eternally sailing the Star Waters
sometimes becoming a single drop
one tear on the cheek of an innocent child who is thirsty
and at others the raging floods which erase the footsteps
we have left behind
Yes, take a deep inhale and feel the Water
and a relaxing outbreath
and welcoming back
Take few a moments now to just settle back in and know that it has been a joy for me to be of service to you today…
I Love You – I Thank You – I Respect You
Blessings of Peace, Light and Love
