A SPECIAL NOTE TO THOSE WHO
MIGHT NEED IT:
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.
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.
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. .
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.
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

THE GIFT IS IN THE GIVING
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!

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!"

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.
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.
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.
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!).
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!
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 ."

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
