Here is a recording of a talk I did Sunday about love, why we love and why releasing judgment is so important. I also spoke about my incredible trip to Peru. Enjoy!
I have no idea who wrote this but I think it is a wonderful opportunity to see our wonderful ability to judge others from a new perspective. I am sure if Jesus was still walking the earth he would have a few choice words for our judgmental nature.
I am still not feeling well so today I was laying in bed watching TV when Touched by an Angel came on. There was one line I particular liked. “Angels don’t make anything better they just introduce you to the person that can. (Meaning God)”

Bottom line, the truth about fear is it is based on a lie. You are not your body, you are an eternal, immortal being so what is there to be afraid of?
Imagine walking into Jerusalem with Jesus as he entered the city or hearing Moses demand his people be set free or walking along side Muhammad hearing him share some of his insights.
Believe it or not all of life is emotionally neutral. Nothing is inherently good or bad, it just is until we put a value judgment on it.
How do you achieve a personal relationship with the celestial realms?
I often suggest people ask the question: What would love do? As I was getting ready to write this post I thought: What would fear do?
Just as I started writing this post I read that Peter Graves who starred in the orginal ‘Mission Impossible’ died. As I think about the show I imagine angels getting their assignments and then winging their way into our lives

How often do you experience fear on a daily basis? Realistically, how can angels help you deal with fear?
I love the gentle flicker of candle light. Often when I want to pray I will light a candle on my altar first to help me connect with the divine.
Angels are certainly the antithesis of fear. Here are seven angels that will help fill your heart and your mind with love and alleviate your fears.
ESPN has already fired Paul Shirley and it seems as though he brought the wrath of the multitudes down upon himself. Judgment abounds on both sides.
This morning while I was responding to some comments I remembered this video and the Free Hug campaign.
Today is World Hug Day. You can make the world a better place by sharing lots of hugs.
Every time we take a breath we are given the gift of life from our spirit. Life is such a miraculous gift and wonderful adventure.
I so often hear this question: “Why do bad things happen to good people? Life is God’s unconditional gift to us, the rest is just part of living here on planet earth and are incredible gifts.

My your holiday be blessed with great joy, love, peace and happiness. Here is a video of Bing Crosby singing Mele Kalikimaka.
Merry Christmas! On this Christmas Day 2009 I am forwarding you a letter from God
Angels certainly play a pivotal role in the Christmas story. What would you do if an angel came and talked to you personally? A physical, in the flesh, so to speak, angel talking directly to you? What do you think your reaction would be?
A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. One was love the other two wealth and success.
The holidays in and of themselves create neither joy nor sadness, they are emotionally neutral. The holidays are an event, then we tell ourselves a story about the holidays and then we create our emotional response based on that story.
As the days grow shorter here in the Northern Hemisphere our bodies seem to want to curl up in a ball and hibernate. Most of the major religions and earth based spiritual traditions see this as a time of rededication and new beginnings.
Over the next few weeks I will be writing a series of posts to help put joy back in the holiday season, relieve stress and just help everyone have an angel filled, magical holiday season.
I was thinking about the littlest angel the other day and how I loved that story as a young girl. I remembered listening to Bing Crosby sing it and was filled with a sweet remembrance of childhood Christmases.

Actually the most effective ways to avoid holiday stress is to change your thinking and the way you feel about life. The best way I have ever found to do that is by committing random acts of kindness.
It is amazing what a difference our perspective makes. Perspective actually influences our lives more than anything else, so learning to expand or change our perspective is an incredibly valuable skill.

Here in the US we are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving 2009. I offer you a short prayer and some interesting facts about Thanksgiving.
I think gratitude is a wonderful spiritual practice and dedicating a whole day to gratitude is awesome. I challenge you this week to commit at least two random acts of kindness.
Aloha, I was quite amazed when I was doing research about the top ten fears. They were: long words (that being first really amazed me), flying, clowns, heights, death, being alone, the dark, public speaking, commitment and intimacy. Of course, […]
Recently I was introduced to Amma the hugging saint. I was deeply moved by the love she shows. She will spend up to 22 hours a day hugging and blessing people, an amazing act in and of itself.
This week’s theme for me has been love, joy, compassion, prayer and meditation. Today I will share images of people in my groups that share those feelings.

What does the movie, “Men Who Stare at Goats” have to do with working with angels? Let me tell you a story and then you’ll see the connection.
In Jewish tradition the word we translate “miracle” is nes. A nes is a sign, like a flag, waiving above a building or a marker, drawing your attention to something special. I thought about the idea of miracles as markers and as I looked at my life I saw a lot of miracles.
My mind is swimming with thoughts today, instead of a gentle trickle it feel more like a flood driven raging river and I have learned over the years that’s a good thing.
When I look at the world today what I see is a hunger, a hunger that can only be filled with a deep and profound connection to our spirit. Last night I had an amazing dream in which I was talking to some people about the power of grace.
Chamuel’s name means “He who seeks God.” He is often described as “pure love in a winged form.”
Our minds are a magnificent tool. They were just never meant to be in control. When our spirit is in control, we begin to experience a reality that is free of fear and limitation.
Aloha, I just removed several comments that were, to say the least unkind, racially prejudiced, and downright unacceptable. For some reason, I didn’t get a copy of them when they were posted or you can be assured they wouldn’t have […]

This morning I wake up dreaming about my father’s last few breaths and feeling myself dying, a pretty nightmarish experience. As I woke up I heard the lyrics “Hark the herald angels singing” which was very comforting.
Affirmations are a very powerful way to change both our thinking and the circumstances in our life.
Gratitude has the ability to return us to that childlike nature where we are amazed and excited by all of life and are connected to God in a concrete and constructive manner.
As I watch the dawn I am once again reminded that each day is a new beginning, a story yet to be written and I can write anything I want on the pages that follow. I say a prayer and ask to be guided so that all my thoughts and actions are loving.
When we give without any thought to receiving miracles do occur in our life. That is what angels do all the time.
I am off to Lithuania for the month. I absolutely love going there and have fallen in love with the country and the people.
