This is a time of transition. I know I'm not shocking most of you with this news, but it's important to acknowledge that this is a special time and the rules we've been operating under don't necessarily apply in the same way anymore. We know this past year has been escalating with the Harmonic Concordance, Mercury's close visit, the solar flares, the Venus transit, and measurable energy changes on our planet that are transforming life as we know it. It's now been discovered that we have Sedna, a 10th planet in our solar system, and the Hubble space telescope has discovered as many as 100 new planets orbiting stars in our galaxy. Life is changing and it's changing fast.

It's an interesting time to be alive, and yet it can also be challenging. Many feel challenged mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. I'm no exception. One thing seems to be certain - if you are one of the people that's needed for the evolution of the planet, you are being asked to release and let go of anything that no longer serves you on whatever level it might apply. We are no longer being allowed to hold on to anything that might hold us back. This is the time to commit to and actively release with great joy anything that you need to. Learn the lesson, let the rest go, and move on.

Many people have felt they have lost their passion, their motivation, or their vision. Still others feel they have lost their gifts or the ability to express them in the world. For most, this is a time of preparation for all the changes that are coming quickly now. .

This is not the time to give up. This is not the time to turn back. This is the time to remain firm in your faith and solid with your regular daily practices that support you. This is the time to be calm and steady. Be rigorous and committed to doing the things that serve you well. Ground yourself at least once a day. (If you don't have a practice for this, send me an email and I'll send you a copy of a grounding technique you can use.) This is the time to gather with people who are like-minded and share your experiences so you know that you're not alone. Not to criticize or complain, but to discover new options and insights.

Most of all, it is a time to remember you're here for a reason and that everything is happening under grace in a perfect way. It is already done, we are simply in the process now of the unfolding. For me, this is a time to begin to do something I've wanted to for a long time. I will begin sending my Enlightened Journeys newsletter on September 1st to talk about all of this. If you'd like to receive this newsletter, please visit www.EnlightenedJourneys.com to sign up.



I have to be honest. I made the woman cashier at BIG! LOTS cry. I had shopped and gathered three baskets full together at the check out line and she just kept saying, "This is so emotional". I just kept encouraging her by acknowledging that she was playing an important part in making a lot of people very happy.

I rarely make people cry when I shop, but today was something special. I had checked my "Giving" jar and found it quite full since I'd been on vacation last month, so I called one of my favorite charities to find out what was on their wish list. Then, I went shopping.

I wanted to have my money make a difference on their behalf, so I went to a discount store. As I went through the store, I was thinking of the abused women and children who didn't have the luxury of going out to buy what they desired. I was on a mission on their behalf.

As I took my carts, one after another, to the main checkout stand until I finished, I told them about my mission. Other shoppers came over to ask about what was going on as I checked out. I shared the story with them and they began to get excited, too.

When I delivered the bags of treasures to the organization, they were surprised. The woman I'd spoken to on the phone, Lisa, said she had no idea when I'd called that morning that I intended to do this. Then she said, "It feels like Christmas! It's so exciting!"

As I was finishing my purchase at the store, the cashier thanked me for making a difference in her day. She said she was going to go home and tell everyone about me, about what I'd done.

As the man from the store helped me out to my car, he asked me "You're really giving this all to charity?" Then, we began talking about the children. I explained to him that the children of the world need to know that life can be good and generous, that they can have their dreams, and that there are people out there who really care about them. We all need to know that we are counted and that we are visible. Even when we cannot be seen.

It's important to remember to give on a regular basis. It just feels good to be generous with an open heart. Giving is the other hand of our receiving to be in the flow of life. We must continually give to keep the flow coming to us and to expect to receive that flow in return for what we contribute.

Now, the truth is every gift should be given for fun and for free with no expectation of reciprocation. However, having done our part we are absolutely entitled to expect the Universe to increase our flow as the result of what we give out!

We all have something to give - a smile, a kind word, a loving gesture, a helping hand, a bouquet of flowers, a phone call of care, and, yes, the financial prosperity that we have been blessed with. Giving is an affirmation that we believe in the limitless abundance of the world - a powerful affirmation that we know there is always enough for everyone, including us.

It's important to know that we count and that we make a difference in the world around us. Give freely, give gratefully, and give with joyful anticipation of all that you are about to receive! YOU deserve it!

With prosperity and blessings,

"By the act of giving, you open the way for the things within your reach to appear quickly. These things have been wanting to come to you all the time, but were blocked by your lack of giving, because there was no free channel through which they could appear. Your giving opens and frees the channel. Always when there seems to be delay, confusion, or a block between you and your good, that block lies within you, and not in some outside circumstance or personality. When you give under divine guidance, you dissolve the block and open a channel for your good. Then nothing can stop its manifestation in your life!"

- Catherine Ponder, Secret of Unlimited Prosperity


We need motivation and inspiration, but we also need to have practical, tangible information and tools to support us along the way. Hopefully this is a tip that will be of great value to you.

If you haven't heard about The I AM Foundation before, let me be the first to tell you that it is an incredibly wonderful place to get books and music for no cost (you pay the shipping and handling only). I had been looking for Catherine Ponder's work and found all of it here! There's a full range of books donated from well-known authors that are certain to enrich your life and suit any taste.

Best yet, you can make a donation to The I AM Foundation (easy to do online) to help support their mission to gift books and music worldwide. You can visit the website at www.IAMFoundation.org or call them directly at 619.296.2400.

One note to remember is that there is a $6.00 handling fee for every order. What that means to you is that it's to your advantage to have as many books as possible shipped to you at the same time to save on the handling charges (straight from Steve at The I AM Foundation!).

I was privileged to be gifted with 100 copies of Catherine Ponder's book The Prospering Power of Love to share with my clients. I can only tell you the book is a true winner full of powerful affirmations and stories - and absolutely in alignment with the work I share. I will be gifting these to people I see at my upcoming events (see the next section!) and sessions. I HOPE YOU'RE ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES!

"My rich dad gave money as well as education. He believed firmly in tithing. 'If you want something, you first need to give,' he would always say. When he was short of money, he simply gave money to his church or to his favorite charity. If I could leave one single idea with you, it is that idea. Whenever you feel "short" or in "need" of something, give what you want first and it will come back in buckets. That is true for money, a smile, love, friendship. I know it is often the last thing a person may want to do, but it has always worked for me ."

- Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad Poor Dad

"'Life is good!' I laughed and turned to my friend and asked her, 'Do you know why? Because I say so.' I recognized with perfect surety that I can live any life I choose. If I want to be happy, that's my choice. If others want to be miserable, that's up to them. I do not have to justify, explain, rationalize, apologize, or compromise my choice for joy. I create my own reality, just as you do. The universe is big enough to have all kinds of reality happening simultaneously, and none of us needs agreement from anyone to verify the world we choose to live in. What reality would you like to live in? Do you choose a world of love, abundance, and celebration, or one of fear, lack, and doom? The choice is yours - because you say so."

- Alan Cohen, A Deep Breath of Life
