“We are as much alive as we keep the Earth alive” ~ Chief Dan George
Celebrate Earth Day
On this special day of Celebration for our Mother Earth, I want to share a story with you of how my best friend, Mandy, (who has been in the spirit world for many years now) touched the hearts of her community through her deep love, respect and kindness for our Earth. Amanda loved nature and was always connected with the Earth and the Animal kingdom. Many years prior to her passing, she went on a Shamanic journey and found herself sitting by a river not too far from where she lived. For the first time ever, the river spoke to her, asking for her help. She looked very closely and saw how lifeless and polluted it was becoming. People were throwing garbage into it and contaminating the clear flowing stream. The spirit of the river had asked her to help keep it clean and bring it back to life and beauty. Of course, when she came out of her journey, she had a plan. She had heard the cry for help and immediately arranged to clean the river. It brings tears to my eyes and fills my heart with so much Love for her act of kindness. I not only honor and celebrate our precious Earth but also my dear soul sister and best friend for her selflessness. Allow the Earth to speak to you today. Hear its cry or desire and ask how you can be of assistance.
Next Spiritual Author Competition
In November’s newsletter, I shared a story of how a new book wanted to be birthed. The title came through as I was meditating and playing the harp. Soon after the book cover came through very quickly. As many of you know, I was guided to enter into the next top Spiritual author competition for my new book “The Return of The Swan – Bringing Grace to Earth”.

The Beauty of Forgiveness
There truly is an art in Forgiveness, and yet so many are uncomfortable with the word. Many simply express that they cannot do this…it is too hard, they were too hurt and that the damage is already done. Our greatest teachers are those who have challenged us the most throughout our lives and so we should bless them. I first came across the words of Sri Chinmoy, Internationally renowned world harmony leader, spiritual teacher and humanitarian, in 1991, and these words still echo in my soul.
"Our human mind may call it forgiveness, but God is not thinking about our inner and outer misdeeds. He just wants us to raise our consciousness so that we will increase our receptivity and oneness with Him."
Now is the perfect time as not only do I feel that the theme for 2010 is “Forgiveness” but today is the perfect day to elevate your vibration to a higher frequency as we have definitely entered a new portal. Studies have shown that Forgiveness can improve your well being by letting go of anger and stress. So here is the big question, are you ready to forgive? If you feel that this moment is “Divine Timing” and you would like to take the first step, here are some simple techniques that you may want to use to expand your heart chakra and fill it with love to take you to that higher frequency, the Beautiful Vibration of Forgiveness.
The River of Forgiveness ~ Close your eyes, take a deep breath and continue to focus on your breathing. Take a walk into your sacred garden until it takes you to a free flowing river. Let go of any resentment, anger, frustration or anything else that is keeping you in the grudge game and preventing you from forgiving. When you are ready, let it all go and watch it flow into the endless river as it is transformed into light.
Fire Ceremony ~ you can do this visually or physically. Write a letter to the person who you would like to forgive or whom you would like to forgive you (to yourself if it is you that you are forgiving) and when you are ready, let it go. Watch it go up in flames as it burns away all the energy that you have held on to, or that has been stopping you from moving on with your life.
Check in with your body ~ to see if you are holding any energy associated with unforgiveness. Identify where it is in your body, speak to your body and ask for it to be gently released with Love and Light. If you are ready to do this then allow any emotions that have been suppressed to come forward, and acknowledge and honor your feelings. You may also want to log your experience in your journal.
See the Beauty in Forgiving. Take this opportunity to shift and allow yourself to connect with your feelings. Surrender any negativity that you may have towards yourself or others, and make peace with it. Find it in your heart to forgive, as this will take you to a whole new level in your life. Go ahead…give yourself permission to enter the new portal of Freedom.
