Today we need to affirm our lives and what is in our World

Happy Halloween

So much going on. The spiritual energy of the Universe is very intense. We are in a transitional time on our planet. So many things are exploding around us here in America and around the world. There is much hatred and anger abound in the Universe. We need to counter all of this with love and compassion. We have lost souls due to this tremendous storm. Many people are suffering and scared and overwhelmed.

We need to do what we can do by donating to charities that can help in the material sense. We also need to be sending love and protective life to all who have been affected by this terrible storm. We need to use affirmations to keep our thoughts and energy positive. We need to keep ourselves strong and positive to assist others.

Each of us can strengthen ourselves with affirmations. I am giving 10 that I hope will be helpful and calming to ourselves. If they help you, then pass them on to others. On this Halloween night, the night the Pagans of old called the New Year and when the veil is the thinnest between worlds and the ancestors can be nearby and comforting and we can honor them. It is also All Saints Eve. A perfect night to use affirmations for ourselves and the world.

1) No matter what my challenge, I know I am loved.
2) This will pass and I will grow and benefit from it.
3) I will open my heart and allow love to flow out to heal others and Mother Earth.
4) I am the author of my life.
5) No person, place, or thing has any power over me.
6) Beauty arouses me and heals me.
7) I take good loving care of my body and I am where I choose to be and I am beautiful/
8) I know my body is filled with starlight and that I sparkle.
9) My body is amazing. I can relax and let healing take place.
10) I change my life when I change my thinking.

Saying these affirmations each day or several times a day will change your thinking and that will change you and how you react to the world. You can create specific affirmations  to fit your specific circumstances. Opening up your heart to the Universe and sending your love out to heal the planet will make that happen. It will start within each of us. So go ahead affirm what you want to be in your life.


We are all safe and will be provided what we need most in our lives now and always.

We Are Being Visited By Sandy

Peace to everyone and to Mother Earth

Hello everyone. I realize that all of my readers are not in harm’s way. Please evacuate if they tell you to. Take no chances with your lives. We are having 60 mile gusts. Be warm and safe. Please pray if you are not in harm’s way. Keep white light and protection around all those who are in danger. Don’t forget the earthquake in BC.

The Activity of the Mind

The activity of the mind at rest is awesome. We move into altered states of consciousness each night when we sleep. The process is an astonishing creative force. We get cozy in our beds, comfortable and relaxed; it is almost like suspended animation.

Our minds show us visions, created characters and stories. They reveal perceptions that had eluded our waking mind.

The endlessly fertile dream mind is common to all of us. With no effort whatsoever, we are able to write complex dramas, paint magnificent paintings, map strange lands and write brilliant dialogue. We fly, we swim, we run like the wind, we can wear animal bodies and make scientific discoveries. There have been many accomplishments recorded. Scientific work has been done in sleep learning.

Night is vital to us. Can you imagine a life without your dreams? I certainly can’t. To the mind, the day is not more important than the night. Here’s to all of us night owls in the world!

The sun can only be seen by the light
Or the sun. The more a man or woman knows,
The greater the sun the more dazzled, until a point
Is reached where one no longer is.

A mystic knows without knowledge, without
Intuition or information, without contemplation
Or description or revelation. Mystics are not themselves. They do not exist
In selves They move as they are moved, talk as words come, see with sight
That enters their eyes. I met a woman once and asked her where love had led her.
“Fool, there’s no destination to arrive at.
Loved one and lover and love are infinite.”


Fariduddin Attar is one of the most ancient poets of Persia, and it is no exaggeration to say that the work of Attar has been the inspiration of Rumi and of many spiritual souls and many poets of Persia.

“And the psychology of the heart is such that once one begins to know the heart life is a continual phenomenon, every moment of life becomes a miracle. It throws a searchlight upon human nature, and all things become so clear 5o clear to him that he does not ask for any greater phenomenon or miracle; it is a miracle in itself.
What they call telepathy, thought-reading or clairvoyance—–all these things come by themselves, where the heart is open.”

—Hazrat Inayat Khan
