I am a seeker of information, I have always been interested in the stars. In the past, I have had many astrological readings. My life is filled with inner wisdom that fuels my day to know more. The cycles of the moon have always intrigued me and I have learned that when I was born on June 1, 1951 it was  the Waning Crescent II Moon phase.

This means that I am deeply in tune with the greater universe. This phase of the moon embodies the transition from the physical to the spiritual. I have a great understanding of spiritual and mystical aspects. I am able to perceive things that others are unaware of, such as aspects of a personality.

I understand how past and future interact, and are able to use this understanding to shape events. I am highly intuitive and sense that something larger than myself can manifest through me. I have confidence that only comes through a deep understanding of the universe. I find this cool and true!

Recently, I was encouraged to set intentions or wishes at the time of the New Moon. This month it is the third intention/ wishes that I have set. In reading Moonology, I am deeply intrigued by what will follow in the year 2019 for me as I learn about the power and magic of the Moon. I have this deep belief that there is a reason for everything in life and that there are no mistakes.

In 2016, I purchased Moonology: Working with the Magic of Lunar Cycles by, Yasmin Boland. However, I began reading this book on December 31, 2018, and finished it on January 6, 2019. I am committing myself to follow the moon phases for the year 2019 to learn of its power and magic in my personal life. I hope that you join me on this adventure to discover who you are. What a delicious ride life is…

My journey in life has taken me into the world of books that fuel my soul. I learned back in 2004 that there is an education in the books that we are drawn to and a deep purpose as well.

The Teachings of Gary R. Renard

IMG_6959October 20, 2008, I finished reading, The Disappearance of the Universe: Straight Talk about Illusions, Past Lives, Religion, Sex, Politics, and the Miracles of Forgiveness. His teachings inspired me, and within one week I read his second book, Your Immortal Reality: How to Break the Cycle of Birth and Death.

Life took me on a journey of profound discovery and reading of many teachers on different levels of being; spiritual, health, diet, religion, metaphysical expansion and growth of self. There are so many teachings that I have acquired from a vast amount of authors that I am amazed myself that I have read all of these books.

In this blog and future blogs, I hope we can all open to the possibility of expansion and growth of self as well. All it would take is to go within and see what author or book can offer us guidance during challenging times in our lives. Especially, during the holiday season! As an avid reader and collector of the written word through books, I have healed, grown and empowered myself through many teachings. We can all benefit from our discernment in matters of our own lives and what we need to improve.

In April of 2018, I came across another book that he had written. It was April 17, 2018; I finished reading The Lifetimes When Jesus and Buddha Knew Each Other: A History of Mighty Companions. I learned through this book that there had been a trilogy and purchased, LOVE, Has Forgotten No One: The Answer to Life. Amazed and thrilled at the information in these books, I finished reading LOVE Has Forgotten No One, on April 29, 2018.

img_8771-1

The Disappearance of the Universe: Straight Talk about Illusions, Past Lives, Religion, Sex, Politics, and the Miracles of Forgiveness by Gary R. Renard states the following message to ponder. What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when a mysterious couple appeared from out of nowhere – and then told you they were “ascended masters” who had come to reveal some shocking secrets of existence and teach you the miraculous powers of advanced forgiveness? Would you call the cops? Call a psychiatrist? Call out for pizza?

When two such teachers appeared before Gary Renard in 1992, he chose to listen to them (and ask a lot of impertinent questions). The result is this startling book: an extraordinary record of 17 mind-bending conversations that took place over nearly a decade, reorienting the author’s life and giving the world an uncompromising introduction to a spiritual teaching destined to change human history.

In the early 1990s, Gary R. Renard underwent a powerful spiritual awakening. As instructed, he slowly and carefully wrote The Disappearance of the Universe over a period of nine years. Today he is a best-selling author, and his books are considered by students of A Course in Miracles all over the world to be the “Cliff Notes” for the Course, empowering them to read, understand, and apply the Course’s profound teachings to their everyday lives in a practical way.

A winner of the Infinity Foundation Spirit Award, Gary has spoken in 44 states and 31 countries and has been described as one of the most interesting and courageous spiritual speakers in the world. You can check him out www.GaryRenard.com

img_8769

In this book, Your Immortal Reality: How to Break the Cycle of Birth and Death. In this fascinating book, Gary Renard and his Ascended Masters Teachers, Arten and Pursah, teach you how to integrate advanced spiritual principles into your everyday life. Doing so leads beyond theory to an experience of the Divine and the undoing of the ego. Your progress will be accelerated to such a degree that, with continued practice, you can’t help but stop the need to reincarnate once and for all.

Like Gary’s first book, The Disappearance of the Universe, this work elaborates on the teachings of two spiritual classics, The Gospel of Thomas and A Course in Miracles. By focusing on a unique brand of quantum forgiveness, rather than the old-fashioned kind, and taking the understanding of the importance of thought up to a whole new level, your goal will become nothing less than to break the cycle of birth and death.

img_8768

Love Has Forgotten No one; The Answer to Life is the final installment of his trilogy: a fascinating roller-coaster ride to the mysterious truth behind the modern spiritual masterpiece A Course in Miracles. His teachers, Ascended Masters Arten and Pursah, will take you on a whirlwind tour of the afterlife; teach you a method that will, with practice, melt away all of your past bad karma; and reveal the “missing ingredient” to the favorite self-help techniques of today.

This book will blow your mind and hand you the key to enlightenment, at the same time! In the end, you will discover that, indeed, Love has forgotten no one.

img_8770

In The Lifetimes When Jesus and Buddha Knew Each Other; A History of Mighty Companions. Two and a half decades ago, Ascended Master Teachers Arten and Pursah appeared to Gary Renard and held series of conversations with him that elaborated on the teachings of two spiritual classics, The Gospel of Thomas and A Course in Miracles. Gary immortalized what he learned in the books of his best-selling series: The Disappearance of the Universe, Your Immortal Reality and Love Has Forgotten No One. This fourth book is a companion to the original trilogy, yet written to stand alone, an invitation, for new readers into this fascinating work.

This book explores six of the lifetimes in which the incarnations of Jesus and Buddha lived together, beginning in 700 B.C. when they were known as Saka and Hiroji. Arten and Pursah, through the spiritual lessons that Jesus and Buddha learn on their path, clarify the difference between duality and non-duality. When you can internalize these lessons, you will be saved countless years in your spiritual development.

Teachings of Dolores Rose

IMG_6959

It has been twelve years since I met Dolores Rose. Her life is very similar to many women that have suffered any form of abuse. As she struggled to share her story because of the fear, guilt, and shame due to her own choices, I was witness to a courageous, and beautiful soul.

We as women, and even men that have experienced the toxic choices of alcoholism because we desire a way to numb the pain, fill with a deep inner sorrow. The grief that fills our hearts for what was not and what will never be, we personally suffer deep within the recesses of our essence. As a child inflicted with abuse from an adult the damage is unbelievable. Dolores is a survivor and has taught me the benefit and bravery in sharing our stories.

No one has the right to take away the freedom of an innocent child! No one has the right to abuse in any manner the joy of a beautiful child! No one has the right to erase the childhood of a little girl! Dolores has healed because she found her voice and spoke out to share her story proudly after many years of conflicting beliefs. I am blessed to know Dolores and honored to call her a friend.

In reading her story and hearing the painful words from her lips, I discovered the inner workings of change that were evident while reading I HAVE A VOICE. Amazingly, Dolores Rose has captured the anger and released it by the end of this memoir. In her own words; “There is the rage. There is the anger. There is the hurt. There is the other side of the story. There is compassion. There is forgiveness. There is gratitude. There is healing. There is transformation. There is freedom.”

Dolores Rose is a creative soul, a writer, and a motivator as well as an evolving spiritual person. She is a good listener. People find it easy to confide their stories to her. Her path to spiritual growth was not an easy one. She struggled with abuse, addictions, and destructive behavior.

img_8512

Dolores Rose was thirty-three years old before she hit bottom and realized she needed help. After years using drugs and alcohol to escape the pain of her childhood abuse and dysfunctional relationships, she joined Alcoholics Anonymous and took the first step toward turning her life around.

Now after thirty-three years of sobriety, Dolores tells her story in the hopes of inspiring anyone else who is still languishing in the horror from which she emerged. Dolores writes of her traumatizing young life with unflinching honesty, describing and confronting her abusers – and modeling the sort of inner strength and power necessary to move beyond the past into a life of peace, health, and empowerment.

A must-read for anyone who struggles with addiction or carries the secret pain of abuse, I HAVE A VOICE shows that it’s possible to rise above the darkest of times and find true tranquility, happiness, and freedom.

A survivor above all else, Dolores got the help she needed to change her life. Her vibrant sense of humor helped her through rough times. Her heart’s desire is to help other people through sharing her experience, strength, and hope. I HAVE A VOICE is available by her author name, Dolores Rose at www.Amazon.com

The Teachings of Clarissa Pinkola Estes

IMG_6959I fell in love with Clarissa Pinkola Estes many years ago. I sat down and read Women Who Run With the Wolves in exactly one month for the second time in January of 2013. It was after I had just read her book,  Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Love for the Wild Soul: Untie The Strong Woman, in October 2012 in less than a month.

There was a period of searching for my truth when I discovered her teachings on audio after reading Women Who Run With the Wolves the first time. I began to seek answers to why I felt the way I did in life. I started with Warming the Stone Child: Myths & Stories about Abandonment and the Unmothered Child and continued on with her teachings through Sounds True. I believe today that she had a profound influence on my inner self that helped me to heal. In the dark winter months of living in New York, many afternoons, I found comfort listening to her recordings while I nurtured my soul.

In reading, Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Love for the Wild Soul: Untie the Strong Woman, I felt deeply connected to her insight. I have always felt extremely close to the Blessed Mother because I was raised a Catholic. While my children were growing up, I handed them over to the eyes of the Blessed Mother in prayer. My oldest daughter was sixteen when I prayed: Dear Blessed Mother, as you are the Mother of All Mothers, I ask you to watch over my children as they travel far from home and protect them with your love and light. That was over 23 years ago, and I continue to do so now with my grandchildren and thank her for keeping them safe, especially my youngest daughter who travels all over the world.

I hope you enjoy the teachings of Clarissa Pinkola Estes as I have and find the time to look within and see what kind of nourishment your soul is desiring. Books are the greatest of foods to consume.

img_8365

WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES: MYTHS AND STORIES OF THE WILD WOMAN ARCHETYPE “Within every woman, there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species. Though the gifts of wildish nature come to us at birth, society’s attempt to civilize’ us into rigid roles has plundered this treasure and muffled deep, life-giving messages of our own souls. Without Wild Woman, we become over-domesticated, fearful, uncreative, trapped.”
In Women Who Run With the Wolves, Dr. Estes has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and lifegiving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul.

img_8367

BLESSED MOTHER’S IMMACULATE LOVE FOR THE WILD SOUL: UNTIE THE STRONG WOMAN “Have you forgotten” I AM Your Mother. You are Under My Protection.” “There is a promise Holy Mother makes to us,” proclaims Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, “that any soul needing comfort, vision, guidance, or strength can cry out to her, flee to her protection, and Blessed Mother will immediately arrive with veils flying. She will place us under her mantle for refuge and give us the warmth of her most compassionate touch, and strong guidance about how to go by the soul’s lights.” Untie the Strong Woman is Dr. Estes invitation to come together under the shelter of The Mother – whether she appears to us as the Madonna, Our Lady of Guadalupe, or any one of her countless incarnations. In this unforgettable collection of stories, prayers, and blessing, Dr. Estes shares:
– “The Drunkard and the Lady” – a story of unexpected miracles that arise from the mud and soil
– “Guadalupe is a Girl Gand Leader in Heaven” – a poem of resistance and hope
– “No one Too Bad, Too Mean or Too Hopeless” – the fierce Mother that never gives up on us
– “The Shirt of Arrows” – a love that is invincible no matter how many times we are wounded
‘ “The Black Madonna” – she stands at the juncture between two worlds and protects us as we enter the dark places.

With Untie the Strong Woman, Dr. Estes invites you to encounter the force of Immaculate Love – “So that your memory of Her is renewed, or that the knowledge of her miraculous, fierce, enduring ways is drawn into your heart for the very first time.”

img_8364

THE GIFT OF STORY: A WISE TALE ABOUT WHAT IS ENOUGH In this enchanting book, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes shares several small stories that, like Matriochka dolls, fit inside one another. Taken together, they are a moving testament to the enduring legacy of stories and to the triumph of love over loss. Dr. Estes masterfully blends the bitter and the sweet, the dark and the light, despair, and hope, into a wonderful gift that illuminates and strengthens, a gift that will be cherished by all who receive it.

 

img_8358

THE FAITHFUL GARDENER: A WISE TALE ABOUT THAT WHICH CAN NEVER DIE
These elegantly interlocked tales of loss, survival, and fierce rebirth center around Dr. Estes’s uncle, a war-ravaged Hungarian peasant farmer and refugee, a faithful gardener, and a storehouse of stories who was one of the “dancing fools, wise old crows, grumpy sages, and ‘almost saints’ who made up the old people in Este’s childhood.

Told with graceful simplicity, deep feeling, generous humor, and profound optimism, The Faithful Gardener is, at its captivating core, the story of an open-hearted child who listened well to her old-country elders and who grew up to remember, to bear witness, and as one of the premier storytellers of our times, to remind readers and listeners of all ages of “that magisterial life force within all things that strengthens us in times of turmoil or transition, that faithful force which can never die.”

Dr. CLarissa Pinkola Estes, published in 34 languages and one of the most far-reaching artist-psychoanalysts of our time, teaches that in archetypal imagination, “Mother Night is the quintessential medial woman, the woman who can walk in two worlds … ‘the one who knows’ and who can reveal solid ways of living and unleashing creative life in both worlds.

SEEING IN THE DARK; MYTHS AND STORIES TO RECLAIM THE BURIED, KNOWING WOMAN Buried within all of us is what Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes refers to as the “one who knows” – our instinctive, intuitive nature. This, she teaches, is the source of creativity and understanding that lies out of sight in the darkness, often called the unconscious.
In Seeing in the Dark, listeners join the esteemed Jungian psychoanalyst and best-selling author to learn how to perceive “through the eyes of the soul as well as through the eyes of the ego.” This dual way of seeing, being and acting, Dr. Estes explains, is the most direct way to reclaim the gifts and the “healing apothecary” set into each soul at birth.

HOW TO BE AN ELDER: MYTHS AND STORIES OF THE WISE WOMAN ARCHETYPE
Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes presents Volume Five of the Dangerous Old Woman Series
What makes an elder, a heartfelt spirit, a clear mind, a talented heart, one who is young while old and old while young, an activist for the Soul? Is it formulae, schemas, lexicons? It could be. But also, and often more so, I think it is very like the flowering of the trees in the forest, as we gather more years; we struggle, and stride onward in our better learned ways to give out even more seeds for new life, and to blossom wildly in so doing for self and others … The old ones are yet traveling underground and overland toward us as we meet one more time.

How To Be An Elder presents the culmination of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes masterwork, inviting us to “come into our own as wiser and wild souls” through six sessions of teachings, stories, poetry, and blessings. In this fifth and final volume of Dr. Estes’ landmark series, we will explore how it is that through the gathering of our years we become a beautiful refuge for ourselves, our Souls and for those who come after us.
“Did I mention, dear brave souls,” reminds Dr. Estes, “that you came with all the seedlings needed to do your work, to take your venerable places in life? Now is the just-right time, like Sleeping Beauty, to break the enchantment, to truly awaken and awaken others, as either a rookie Dangerous Old Woman, or a mid-career Dangerous Old Woman, or as Crone with Crown complete!”

THE LATE BLOOMER; MYTHS AND STORIES OF THE WISE WOMAN ARCHETYPE
The Late Bloomer is the fourth volume of the Dangerous Old Woman Series with Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes. “What makes talent bloom?” Ask what makes a tree blossom. They are the same. It is not unfathomable. It only takes concentration. A concentration of energies is what makes a tree flower. Not bigger, not faster, not taking up more space. Rather, less space. Density. The pressure in hard places. Often, in the dark. Relentlessly. Freely. For as long as it takes. Hold faith; a gestation can go long and for a good reason, and nothing much shows above ground. But then, one day…” -Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D.

Are you waiting for New Life, for your talents to bloom? With The Late Bloomer, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes presents volume four of her masterwork on the Wise Woman archetype, bringing six lessons of original tales, stories from her ethnic families, poems, blessing and psychological commentary exploring the cycles of “burgeoning, blooming New Life.”

The Teachings of Robert Schwartz

IMG_6959

There are so many questions that fill my mind daily. Here are a few that I would like to share with you, my reader. Hopefully, you have had similar questions of your own. Maybe a thought here or there that life is not as it seems to be.

  • What are your beliefs about connecting to the Spirit world? As in Angels, Spirit Guides, Elemental Beings, Ascended Masters and Totem animals?
  • Do you believe in psychics?
  • Do you seek to know information from tarot card readers?
  • Do you wonder about life?
  • Have you ever felt that something happened as a sign for you?
  • Did you ever believe in some form you were never alone?
  • What are your beliefs around dying?
  • Do you believe as a soul you are an eternal spiritual being living a human experience?

I believe that everything happens for a reason, that there are no mistakes, that we pick our parents and the situations and challenges in life to learn from them. That we come here to heal past Karma. I believe that there is a vast unified field that we all can connect to. As an avid crazy reader of all different kinds of books that I believe Spirit sends to me, the following is a true story.

The day was October 10, 2016, when I received the book by Robert Schwart Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born. My husband had placed it on the kitchen table where I sit. With tears streaming down my face, I picked up the book and asked him, “Where did this come from?” He told me, “the guy who owns the bookstore by my office gave it to my foreman, to give to me, to give to you today.”

Sadly, this was the moment precisely at 8PM that I had learned that a boy I adored and loved since the moment of his birth had decided to commit suicide at 39 years of age. As I held the book in my hands and started to read the back cover, I knew this was a message from Spirit. This day. This hour. This sorrow. This pain. How could it not be that Spirit sent me this book? What did I do? I began to read this book and then I purchased the second book.

Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born by Robert Schwartz states the following. So often, when something”BAD” happens, it may appear to be meaningless suffering. But what if your most difficult experiences are actually rich with hidden purpose – a purpose that you yourself planned before you were born? Could it be that you chose your life’s circumstances, relationships, and events? Within these pages are stories of ten individuals who – like you – planned before birth to experience great challenges. Working with four gifted mediums and channels, author Robert Schwartz discovers what they chose – and why.

Through these remarkable stories of pre-birth planning, you can:

  • Learn why each of us decides to experience such challenges as illness, difficult relationships, the death of a loved one, and accidents.
  • Understand how  you as a soul create your life blueprint
  • Consciously use your challenges to foster spiritual growth and healing

Sonia Choquette, author of The Answer is Simple … Love Yourself, Live Your Spirit! Writes: “A deeply insightful guide as to why our lives unfold as they do and how to direct them to a deeper place. A powerful book … I highly recommend it.”

John Holland, author of Power of the Soul; Inside Wisdom for an Outside World writes: “One of the most detailed explorations I have seen into understanding why we have chosen our journey as a soul here and now. This book will help thousands of people. A book you have to have in your library.”

The second book by Robert Schwartz, Your Soul’s Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born is a sequel which delves even deeper by exploring the pre-birth planning of spiritual awakening, miscarriage, and abortion, caregiving, abusive relationships, sexuality, incest, adoption, poverty, suicide, rape, and mental illness.

Working with a team of gifted mediums, Schwartz brings forth great love and wisdom from “the other side” to explain why such experiences are planned – and the deep, soul-level healing they can create.

Through the stories in Your Soul’s Gift you can:

  • Develop greater self-love as you become aware of the tremendous courage it takes for you to plan a life on Earth and to live the life you planned
  • Emerge from victim consciousness to know yourself as the powerful creator of your life
  • Forgive those who have hurt you and create a lasting inner peace
  • Understand the qualities you came into this lifetime to cultivate and express
  • See profound purpose in experiences that once appeared to be meaningless suffering
  • Develop a heartfelt knowing of your infinite worth, beauty, magnificence, and sacredness as an eternal soul

James Van Praagh, the author of Growing Up in Heaven, writes: “This book is an incredible guide map to your soul and the various jewels stored inside it. Read this to reconnect with your TRUE SELF.”

Arielle Ford, the author of The Soulmate Secret, writes: “Robert Schwartz offers deep wisdom into the nature of our soul and the purpose of our lives. He explains life and karma with clarity and elegance.”

Raymond Moody, MD, Ph.D., author of Life After Life writes: “I was deeply impressed by Your Soul’s Gift. This is a fine discussion of one of the great mysteries of existence. To what degree do we plan our lives before we are born? Robert Schwartz offers a profound spiritual analysis of some of life’s most difficult crises and turning points. This book is well worth reading for its novel and surprising insights into the difficulties most of us face in life.”
