Death and Rebirth

Just like the cycling of the seasons, with the coming of autumn, if we are wise, we are continuously experiencing death and rebirth.. As the trees release this year’s leaves and fall to the ground, so we should be shedding that which no longer works for us.

Pulling inward with the winter to reflect and take inventory; What is it you really want to be doing with your life? What is it you want to share with the world? What mark do you want to leave behind? How do you want to be remembered?

We have but one life. Carpe Diem. Why not live it to the fullest and become the best version of you that is possible. Drop fear to the side. Do the things your heart has always wanted to do. And, if you haven’t taken the time to ask your heart what it truly wants to do, the time is now to have that conversation.

We are currently in a time of chaos and unrest. But, that time is ending. This is a time of great transition. The paradigm we have been living in is collapsing. A portal is being opened to a new dimension. A more loving peace filled way of life is evolving.

It is time to look inside and discover who we truly are. Time to ignite the spirits we have allowed to shrivel and shrink within us. It is now time to illuminate. Be a conscious part of the historic evolution that is underway.

Drop the negative thoughts, the doubtful reasons why you don’t do what it is you love. Discover, or rediscover, that which brings your heart and soul joy. Find your passion, big or small. Then, go out and experience it. Experience it to it’s fullest. Be in the moment. Feel the light inside begin to shine as you honor your deeper self.

In honoring that deeper part of you, the part that makes you unique, the part that has to offer something vastly different from others, you allow your light to shine. And, in allowing your light to shine, you help give others the ability to find theirs and do the same.

It’s time to do that deep work of shedding our useless layers. Time to let them fall like the autumn leaves. Then, to experience the rebirth that is to follow. Time to illuminate your world. Let your light shine as bright as God/The Universe meant it to shine.

As for me, I continue to evolve. Caring less each day what others think and more how I can make my Light the brightest I can. I feel my layers falling to the side daily. Waking up to a new and more passionate person every morning. Excited to see what comes next. Excited to see what miracle happens today …for I know, the Revolution Begins With Me

Setting my sights high!

11/11: The Awakening

For several decades now, numbers have carried much meaning for me. It all started when a good friend of mine, a Physician’s Assistant who worked in the liver transplant program at the time, introduced me to the concept. He was a Vietnam Veteran, serving as a combat medic.

Eleven was his number. Anytime we seen the time, 11:11 on a clock he would comment, “Your angels are watching you!”

Not liking when my birthday is, falling right next to Christmas, and getting frequently overlooked, he told me back then he was going to “change” it, and make my new one “11/11”. Holding great significance for him because its Veteran’s Day, and because its his number.

Both of us very spiritual people, over the years, I started to notice the significance in this number. When it started appearing, it would usually do so consecutively. And, it was always during a time when there was some sort of major shift or transformation happening in my life.

A couple years ago, I noticed the fact that people in increasing numbers were starting to pay attention to my number “11”. More and more frequently, I seen the acknowledgement to the purpose of numbers spiritually. The Awakening that I had always knew was coming began to accelerate.

So, today, beyond recognizing our veterans, and thanking them for their service, I also want to acknowledge, and bring attention to the number 11, and what it’s meaning is in the spirit world.

Eleven is probably the most talked about number in the angel realm. It is usually the number seen most often as people begin to awaken to the higher purpose of numbers in our lives. There is great reason for this, as number 11 is one of the most profound messages that can be sent to us from our angels.

Eleven is the number of faith and is widely related to psychic and prophetic abilities. It is the gateway to enlightenment. Usually why this is the first number people start to acknowledge as their higher self is awakening. Seeing the number 11 with frequency usually means you are starting to find alignment with your more higher self and with higher realms

The number 11 is the number that represents our intuition. To see not just with our eyes, but with our senses and our soul.

The frequency of 11 is about beginnings, taking the initiative, believing in yourself and accepting a leadership role in which you step out ahead of the curve, beyond the consciousness of those around you. Guiding the the human race forward into love. (Alana Fairchild: Lightworker Oracle Guidebook)

The number 11 is associated with spiritual awareness. It brings visionary leadership and necessary changes in demanding situations. This number includes the search for solutions through visions and purposes.

Angel number 11 also represents “transformation” through intuition, truth, balance, and mental abilities. People with this number in their birthdate are unusual, charismatic, idealistic, visionaries that are drawn by something unknown and unresolved.

People who have eleven for their number are usually deep thinkers, interested in many of life’s great mysteries and other interesting and spiritual aspects of life. Their inventive minds and broad-minded views will allow them to succeed in life in any number of ventures. They can best serve the community, with honest compassion.

Number 11 represents an instinctive person and is the most intuitive of all angel numbers. It signifies an connection to the subconscious, sixth sense and knowledge without rationality.

So, if you often see a series of numbers 11,111,1111, there’s a reason for that, and you should be fortunate to experience the sight. The most common way for angels to communicate with us is through the universal language of numbers and music.

When you see this numerical string of angel numbers, it means that you are going through the cycle of expressions of your hidden thoughts, ideas, and desires that are manifested instantaneously. This series can mean a new beginning for you and will give a positive focus on what you want to create.

If you are seeing this number, or because today is 11/11, it’s time to set an intention and begin to manifest. You just need to focus on your desires instead of your fears. Therefore, possibilities will come your way instead of obstacles. You just need to accept them as gifts.

Secret messages are all around us if we only open our eyes. Once you do, the mystical realm of angel numbers, and the other ways our angels communicate with us, will start to increase. Start following their guide, and more and more magick will be brought into your domain. The power of manifesting. That’s how it works.

Enjoy the magick of 11/11! Namaste.

Trust In The Plan

Spiritual Warriors Arise!

I’m not afraid to die. Especially not for my country.

A near death incident January 7th, 2005, I was given the option of crossing over, or staying on the planet, 100% committed to sharing my story and following God’s plan. I made my choice.

I had just turned 40, was the mother of 3 sons, the oldest a senior, the youngest in 3rd grade with a young life of severe behavior problems, and unknown to me, soon to be pregnant with my only daughter.

My life was in a million little pieces and I was suffering more pain than mentally, emotionally, and spiritually comprehensible.

I had already been through a lot. Divorce. Isolation from people who called themselves family. Becoming ill with what western medicine physicians called “chronic fatigue” (being a nurse and being tenacious I knew there was a different cause.) Later to learn and be treated for severe mercury poisoning by an alternative medicine DO. The suicide of my father, the only person in my life I could always count on, when I was 29 and finishing my last year of nursing school.

I was strong, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. and physically. Getting into body building at age 26 as a way to help eleviate the symptoms from my then undiagnosed heavy metal poisoning. I knew who I was and what I was made of.

So at this point, finding myself, the Phoenix, in ashes on the ground, I knew I could and I would rise stronger and more powerful than ever before. 100% certain of that because this time I let God do the leading.

I’ve spent the last 15 years healing my family, healing myself, and moving towards “THAT DAY”. “THAT DAY” when I would be asked to take the next steps to move out and share my message with the world.

Last year as my eldest 2 sons continued to impress me, not only with the success in their careers, (both finishing top of their class, going on to become engineers working in the computer/ technology world) but as strong confident men who gave back to the world around them. My youngest son, the one whose pre-kindergarten principal kicked him out of school and told me he “would be in an institution by the time he’s 15,” graduated from Navy bootcamp at the age of 23. Not just graduated though, but graduated top 3% out of over 1000 sailors. Proving not just to me, but most importantly to himself, what he is made of. (Having already had to jump through 6 months of hoops to even qualify for the Navy.)

I knew my time was at hand. My sons were all in amazing places. God was preparing me for my next steps. A fall and winter spent with glorious opportunities coming my way.

Then CoVid hit. And, as the rest of the country/ world went into a state of fear, a state of unrest, and panic, I continued to flourish. Knowing God had purposefully had me go through MY hard times so I would be ready for now.

The destruction of our country to a new level beginning in my home state of Minnesota. Parts of the rioting and burning happening near the hospital I used to work at.

A best friend, in the thick of the riots the first week as the local fire marshal and emergency Red Cross responder. Other friends living or working in the parts of the city being burned. All of it just confirming, MY time is near.

I had left the life of consumerism and avarice, returning to an “unplugged” version of living. And, I have been awake and watching the last 20 years as our country has been dismantled from the inside.

I have been waiting for THIS DAY because I knew it was coming. I sit in the solitude of my Oasis,, unaffected on a daily basis by what is happening out there, wondering how this will all play out.

For one thing is certain, we’re NEVER going back to what we were. The other thing that is certain, Americans’ lives are going to get a whole lot worse before they start to get better.

I sit in my Mystical Forest preparing for what is to come. Preparing to be “called” up to do my part to defend my country.

Hard times are here. Fortunately, I have had the foresight to raise and prepare my family on all levels. We are the warriors. And, I for one am ready to defend. Ready to die for my country because … The Revolution Begins With Me.

Seeking the Truth

I am a seeker of truth. And, I am a lover of light. Those are not mere words. For, it is only in the light that the truth can be found.

This has been a hard week for the majority to witness and be a part of. The whole year seemingly about tearing our country a part, and fractioning its people. Its no real surprise that the election is FINALLY over and the mayhem of what we’re witnessing is the result.

I passionately believe in the right of each individual to have their own beliefs. So, when our country is tearing each other apart because people don’t like the same candidate as me, something has gone greatly astray.

“United we stand, Divided we fall” has been a motto that’s been in my head about as far back as I can remember. I think more than ever in any time of my life it is relative.

That being said, if both sides of the political parties don’t agree that THE TRUTH NEEDS TO BE FOUND, we will be fractured as a country. And, I hate to say it, but that is exactly what the people who truly are controlling us are looking for.

There is so much NOT RIGHT about what is happening now. To me, as a writer, perhaps the most highly offensive issue I am seeing is the blatant censorship by big tech and mass media outlets. If things are truly as they appear to be, why is it that what certain people are saying is being censored more blatantly than ever before in my 55 year history?

I’m all about transparency. When transparency is NOT allowed, there’s no bigger red flag to make me wonder what certain entities are trying to hide.

Another huge problem I am seeing with what I read one foreign blogger call “The Looney Tunes Show,” for certainly it appears that way to people watching from outside our borders. Hell, it seems that way to me! Why is main stream media the source making the call in this election? This is a legal matter, and needs to be handled as such.

There are so many unanswered questions, and so much suspicious activity, with people coming out not just in the contested states, but in countless others saying they have witnessed suspicious activity. That they do not feel comfortable with things they have witnessed or have been asked to do.

Perhaps it’s my own personal history as a critical care nurse, and the fact that when I started speaking up about blatant careless unnecessary deaths, that I was the one ostracized in a huge way, and my name slandered. Hence, making my fury for these people’s voices to be heard even more emboldened.

In my opinion, there should be no decision made on the winner of the election until all legal matters have been resolved and all questionable recounts allowed. It seems to me, if the other side truly did win, they wouldn’t feel it a necessity to be pushing through their narrative.

Then to see, the former vice president literally bragging about having “put together the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization”. That really makes me want to find answers.

https://thefederalist.com/2020/10/24/joe-biden-says-democrats-created-the-most-extensive-and-inclusive-voter-fraud-organization-in-american-history/

I am a seeker of truth, and there are far too many unanswered questions about way too much suspicious activity. I for one will not be satisfied as an American until resolve has been brought to innumerable, never before witnessed activities involved in this election.

It is my belief if citizens truly believe in the sanctity of our Constitution, and the election process of our country, it doesn’t matter which side of the isle you’re on, that they would be wanting the truth to be allowed to be uncovered. A frightening precedent is being created if due process is not allowed, particularly in the highest office of our country.

I am about unifying our country. Bringing us back together in a world of peace. Eradicating hate and prejudice. We are on the precipice of losing all this country stands for. If we can not come together now in agreement of seeking out the truth, all that this country stands for will soon be gone.

This is a tough and harrowing time to be living through but living in a state of fear or anxiety is only going to lower the vibration. We need to be bringing light to the situation so with complete illumination the truth can be revealed.

For me, this time is one of keeping calm. One of staying grounded. Loving and uniting with my family. And extending kindness to everyone I meet. I have faith in my God. I know that He is the one who is truly in charge. I move forward in peace … for The Revolution Begins With Me.

“Make That Idea Your Life”

My “road less traveled.”

Not just for me, but for ALL of us … Now is a time to manifest! Time to tap into the Power of Good! Do that which starts the fires of passion burning deep within!

Saturday morning in the Mystical Forest. I have my “fire” burning!

Life right now is about RAISING THE VIBRATION!! Finding our spirits back! Bringing our souls back to life!! It is THE ONLY direction to be moving now!!

Words I read last weekend from fellow blogger. Thank you “penser studypoint” for sharing these inspiring words! I had to keep them moving!

“Take up one idea.

Make that idea your life;

dream of it; think of it; live on that idea.

Let the brain, the body, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.

This is the way to success, and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.”

The Revolution Begins With Me

“Trust in Yourself”

All my adult life I’ve had this overwhelmingly strong connection to the Native American culture. The way they lived before white man came in and destroyed their land and their way of life.

Always in tune to wildlife and the animals I encountered. Respecting and finding the amazing beauty in all. No surprise, several decades ago when I first learned of animal totems, or spirit animals.

Animals from the turkey vulture to the coyote, bald eagle to moles, cranes to deer, (the day after the election the most wonderous stag!) all have been very wise council to me over the years.

This Sunday I was prompted to look a bit closer at a specific animal that’s been in my life all summer, but actually ended up getting backseat to a couple others.

We live in the country, relatively isolated, but next to us we have neighbors who now have a deserted barn. It sits right off our property line. A mother skunk decided it would be a great place to raise her family. Opening our windows most of the season was not an option.

One of our cats, the young inquisitive, overly friendly male, was the first to let us know they were around. I was to learn tomato juice does not actually cut the smell once sprayed.

Sunday, I discovered something had been in our garage. Monday I found the visitor. It was one of the skunk family members. He thought our garage a good new living space, the barn closed up for the winter.

Monday night I set a trap, Tuesday morning I found success. My daughter and I released it several miles away near a small pond. The amazing thing to me, through the whole ordeal, it never “raised a stink”. It just wanted to make me aware that the message it carried for me was building in importance.

The skunk is one of the most widely recognized mammals, but one of the most misunderstood. What wise council had it come to share?

He had several messages …

How to give respect, expect respect, and demand respect. But first, build up your self-confidence and develop your strength and sense of independence. You will have the respect to get where you wish to be.

Skunk moves along at its own pace. Self assured and confident. It wants to teach the same. Be more self-assured and know how to assert yourself. It presents the opportunity to become more confident with your interaction with others.

Skunk wants to teach us how to get more attention without being arrogant and irritating. Symbolizes the importance of being who you are and living authentically without caring about other’s opinions.

Skunks are fearless, but they are also very peaceful. They move slowly and calmly. They only spray as a last resort. Because they are peaceable by nature, they always give warnings before spraying. They teach us to meet life’s challenges with a calm and peaceful heart.

Skunks spray from the moment their eyes are open. This reflects the intense energy levels that individuals with this totem are often born with. They place an emphasis on being distinct. Trusting in yourself and living on your own terms by setting your own boundaries Walk your talk is the only way to set an example for others.

Their are both spotted and striped skunks. The striped the most common, with either a double or single stripe. This is an indication of the active flow of kundalini or life force. Individuals with this totem, the kundalini is usually already active. Skunk shows up at a time to amplify and to teach the control and use of t his life force more effectively.

A solitary animal for the most part, skunks remind us there are times best for drawing towards people and times best to avoid them. Finding the correct balance will bring prosperity. Also urges you to rely on yourself more.

Skunks are usually quite silent. It is good for those with this totem not to blow their own horns. Sit back and let others do the noticing for you. Skunks teach us when its best to be noticed and how to go about it most effectively.

When skunk shows up as a totem you are going to have opportunities to bring new respect and self-esteem in your life. Don’t worry about your reputation. Its only what you think of yourself that matters. The rest will follow.

You have the courage and will power to “raise a stink” and to make right something that is wrong. Justice needs to prevail at this time. You do not need to “spray” to be compelling. Your reputation proceeds you. Stand your ground calmly and with confidence.

What animals have entered your life in the physical world or in a dream? They are most likely trying to tell you something.

Animals bring me significant advice that is so relative when they do. Skunk was no exception. I needed to hear the message he brought.

I will always have my eyes and ears open, especially to the beauty of nature. One more step for my betterment because … the Revolution Begins With Me.

Laugh. It Can Only Make Life Better.

Levity and laughter feels like the best answer for me to cut the intensity I am feeling right now. Ready for tomorrow’s election to be over.

Growing up in Minnesota, Charles M. Schultz, Minneapolis native, famed Charlie Brown and Snoopy cartoonist, was a favorite to many.

This included Sister Christa, the principal at the small Catholic school I attended. She herself an artist, always had new drawings of Charlie and his gang outside her classroom, along with her own humor and words of wisdom.

In honor of her and Charles M. Schultz. I will remember NEVER to take life too seriously! It is certain to work itself out in the end.

For all the runners out there…You’re multi-tasking!
For all those out there who share these thoughts…me, I’ll eat my chocolate and then head to the gym.
Remember … this to will pass!

Happy Monday to all! Keep a smile on your face, laughter in your heart, and keeping moving forward.

I will … for Revolution Begins With Me

Next Steps … Manifesting

Creativity means removing the restraints that society and self have placed upon ones psyche. The fire to create comes from the soul. From a place of letting all that you are come to the surface to view in a beautiful previously unknown form..

Writing my 1st book, The Advocate, however, was somewhat of a different process. It was an undertaking of going deep within and dredging up horrific events, horrific unnecessary events I had witnessed as a nurse. And, facing the hideous demons and what had happened to my life while in a culture of darkness. Cathartic to write, to say the least.

A critical care nurse, and good at what I did, especially when it came to interaction with family and friends of my patients, typically sedated or unconscious and on ventilators because of severe illness or trauma. My gift was a connection with spirit, my patient’s spirits, an innate part of me I hadn’t analyzed at the time.

Writing this book became the time for me to connect with my spirit, and as someone who had gone through a traumatic event, to heal through the process.

The book finished over seven years ago. Having had secured an agent three years prior, directing me on how to really bring my story to life. Very sound advice I was given. She had stated it would be “the hardest thing you’ve ever done.” I knew that wasn’t true. Living it had been.

Once complete, I was left in an enormous liminal space. Not the person I was before I started the book, no idea who I was as it was finished. Left in countless little pieces. Unaware of what I was meant to become. Still uncertain now, but my feet have finally found solid ground.

My three sons, as young children, had lived through experiences that would make them more aware of themselves and the world around them as adults. Evolving into strong, solid individuals because they knew what it was like to be in dark times and survive. Coming out more confident and courageous than they could ever have imagined.

Climbing out of the darkness together, I had told them, “We will rise above as the rest of the world is falling.”

Aware my visions always came true, but sometimes in ways my mind, living on a physical plane, previously couldn’t comprehend. In March, when the corona virus shut down the planet, my family in the most solid place, as a whole unit, it had ever been, my words of over a decade ago struck me with great awe. I could never have imagined their meaning being so literal.

Our summer spent enjoying life more fully than we ever have, especially my young daughter and I. Making memories that will last a lifetime. Opportunities coming to us that had never been provided. All the while in between, enjoying the splendor we had spent the last 6 years creating in our country Oasis.

For me, it has been a year of celebration. A year of culmination of the decades of sacrifice and healing. A year of looking at all the pieces of self I had decided to salvage, and after placing them back together, marveling at what was created. In the end, becoming a year of returning to spirit (FINALLY).

My year’s “harvest” in. All the magnificent and glorious energy created over the months, it becomes time to return to reflection and inner contemplation.

With my daughter on track with her home school 9th grade year. I find myself asking, what are my “next steps”?

I know the answer. I knew it was coming. I began to sense it last fall. I had a very strong feeling a year ago now, “Your life will never ever be the same.” Living each moment fully. soaking it up, knowing tremendous evolution was underway.

The people who knew of my writing and my book, long ago tired of asking me when I was going to publish. My response always being, “Soon. I will know when the time is right.” Well, that time has finally come.

My “next steps” are presenting themselves. I know the process of what I need to do. Not because I’m proficient at publishing, but because I’ve gone through the blueprint once, realizing at the time that writing and publishing were two separate entities, and that at the time, I wasn’t ready. But, I have been preparing for this day mentally ever since.

Cognizant it is a process. A process that begins with one simple step. And as beautiful as the Universe is, that first simple step came to me in word form this morning from a fellow bloggers post.

“Take up one idea. Make that idea your life. Dream of it, think of it, Live on that idea. This is the way to success.”

My idea is to publish. It will come in baby steps and increments. But for certain, it will come. For the moment is now … and Now is for manifesting.

Life is too short … it’s time to turn visions into reality … for The Revolution Begins With Me.
