    May 2010

    This is my 17th year of writing a monthly newsletter/blog.

    I always channel the content; my Spirit Guides tell me exactly what they want me to pass on to my readers each month.  Each year has some sort of cosmic, or – you might even call it Divine – theme to it:  every month has its own component, related to that bigger theme.

    This particular year has to do with the concept of hope.  The Webster’s online dictionary definition of hope:  “a feeling that what is wanted is likely to happen; desire accompanied by expectation.”

    As I mentioned back in January, there is a unique power contained within the concept of hope.

    If you see everything that exists as being an energy containing both a high spiritual aspect to it, as well as a mundane aspect, it will be a new way to view hope.  As with literally everything (wealth,  happiness, sexuality, music, types of foods, entertainment, health - - everything) hope exists in both highly spiritual and mundane levels at the same time.  The mundane - - or lower - - aspect relates to the “wimpy” concept of hope: a so-called “wimpy” version of hope would be something like, “I hope I won’t miss my flight, even though I’ve only left 20 minutes at the airport", or "I hope that my boyfriend will give me a ring soon, even though we’ve been arguing a lot recently.”

    The exalted - - ie, higher - - concept of hope is what I’m talking about.  That is what this year’s focus on hope is all about.

    As I mentioned earlier this year, if you read this blog every month throughout the year, by year’s end you will be feeling more grounded, operating more on your life’s purpose and creating more of what you want in life.  Back in January, my Spirit Guides told me that one needs to be operating on a certain level of sophistication spiritually and emotionally before one can actually grasp how to work with the higher concept of hope.  Anyone operating from a mundane level of “hope” is probably in denial in some way and won’t be able to grasp what true hope can actually do for them.  Don't worry, if you think you might be one of those reading this who are assuming that your level of hope is floundering in the mundane!  The entire purpose of my being guided to address this issue this year is to help guide how to transform wimpydom - to - exhalted : )

    The theme for May regarding hope happens to be a very interesting one.  It entirely relates to the volcanic eruption in Iceland that began on April 14th.

    As with concepts such as wealth, sexuality, entertainment, etc. I mentioned up above, events on Earth all have both exalted and mundane levels to them.  The mundane aspect of the volcanic eruption was that 95,000 flights were grounded from Britain alone.  Flights from every point on the earth were also affected. Dozens of millions of people were impacted all over the world because they couldn't get to events, meetings, conferences, vacations, or even home. . .It was a major hardship financially to millions of people who couldn't get to where they needed to be, and were stuck in hotels not knowing when they could even get to where they needed to go.  This definitely created an enormous sense of hopelessness amongst the vast majority of stranded travelers.  I was actually in communication with a few dozen of them myself.  Also, I couldn't get to London where I was meant to be that week.

    The exalted aspect of that volcano's eruption and constant spewing of ash for days on end is what can also be called a Divine message.  That message has to do with accepting that things have changed in the world.

    It's interesting that of all the world's volcanoes, the one in Iceland was the one that erupted; last year, overnight, the economy of Iceland entirely collapsed.  Iceland was one of the major places in the world where people, corporations and pension funds had massive deposits, due to their high interest rates.  Thus people and organizations from most countries of the world were affected.  Although Iceland's collapsed economy and its' volcano erupting are seemingly unrelated - - they are.  The Universe (another way of saying Divine information) is definitely drawing our attention to Iceland.  Two massive things are going on globally that we need to transform: the economies of the world and global climate change.  We can't take for granted any longer that either of these (ie, the way money works plus seasons as we have known them) are going to remain as they have been.  They are not.  A big factor in both happens to be how time is no longer relative to situations the way it has been since ancient times.   A lot more on that coming up. . . Why Iceland for both?  Because Iceland is very close to the polar cap, where massive amounts of ice flows are melting and changing the composition of oceans globally.

    I am being told that we are all going to be facing new and sometimes even more dramatic challenges than we have in the past.  One major reason for needing to understand hope in the exalted way is to have it engrained within each of us so much so, that we will be able to get out of mundane "hopelessens" when these situations arise: and immediately get into this now - engrained concept of true hope immediately - - which will thus beginning to create coming out of whatever whose we find ourselves in.  True hope means that we expect positive.  We actually, literally expect the situation to become transformed or healed.   An excellent beginning to having hope engrained is to just merely recognize that it's meant to be, it's necessary and will be easy if you allow yourself to open up to your own spirit guide's information/working with you on deep levels about it.  Then, do affirmations about it (see the section below on affirmations about hope for the month as well as how to create your own).

    Each color has an innate quality or vibration to it.  The intrinsic color for the deep meaning of hope is magenta.  Colors are very transformative; look for things that have magenta in them  - - pens, note paper, scarves, semi-precious stones (there is a certain color of ruby  - see if you can find it at some gem show - that is the perfect vibration for deep-seated hope).  As you find and bring home magenta-colored items tell yourself that by doing this you are opening up to a great understanding of a high vibration that is Divinely related to hope.

     

    Affirmations for May 

     

    • In every fiber of my being, I accept that Divine hope is my birthright.

    Each month I channel anywhere from one to several affirmations. My Spirit Guides continually let me know that anyone working with the affirmations in my newsletter will see faster results than the affirmations usually provide. I have several dozen Spirit Guides who assist anyone who works with these particular affirmations; they enhance the outcome of whatever the affirmation is about by at least 2 times, up to 6-7 times.

    Saying affirmations on a daily basis is a very effective tool in creating what you want. Constantly repeating positive thoughts eventually WILL transform your thinking patterns and therefore your belief system…One of the phrases I’m most known for, is, “What you believe—you create.” Another way of saying this is that as you start to believe you deserve more, you’ll create more. There are many schools of thought on how long it takes an affirmation to finally work. I believe it is different for each person, and for each area of life we want to transform. Having said that, what I have observed over the past few decades is that saying an affirmation 15-35 times per day will “bear fruit” (i.e., begin to show up in your life) in anywhere from 7 weeks to 4 months. When you speak your affirmations, you are giving instructions to your subconscious mind. How quickly your subconscious mind accepts these thoughts as a new reality depends on many factors: your state of health, how new the topic is to your life, how much stress you are under, how much spiritual work you’ve done on yourself, etc.

    Always state affirmations in the positive. For example: if you’re wanting to increase money that comes to you, state something such as, “Money comes easily to me. I always have a constant flow of money into my checking account.” DON’T say something such as, “I will never worry about my checks bouncing again.” Do be specific: make sure that you state exactly what it is you want. For example, if you are working on manifesting a partner in life, be sure to include aspects such as he/she being “geographically desirable” (in other words not living across the continent, or in another country), prosperous, healthy, supportive, and–single. (That last aspect can be critically important!)

     

    "Hope" Bracelets

     

    I had a dream recently in which I was told to create a line of simple bracelets.  In that dream I saw all sorts of bracelets having beads on stretchy cord - - I saw many different sizes of beads, shapes, and colors.  Some had a charm on them with the word “hope”.

    I immediately began to seek out gems from several different sources.  I acquired a wide variety of them.  These include black lava (lightweight and looks really cool; it’s my favorite), rose quartz, turquoise, amethyst, coral, aquamarine and loads more.  The beads range anywhere from tiny ones to about ¼” in diameter.

    Each of these bracelets I’ve worked (through meditation) on literally programming the bracelets to vibrate the true, deep meaning of hope.

    I also saw that I needed to develop a line of bracelets that have an anti-evil-eye motif.  All across the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey, Asia and everywhere in London, people are wearing bracelets or necklaces to ward off negative energy from other people - - commonly known at least in the Middle East as the “Evil Eye” (this comes from the concept of the third chakra, referring to ‘extra’ sight, that is centered in the middle of the forehead.  BTW Indians often wear a red dot at that point to emphasize that they are proud of their intuition).

    I’m in the process of finalizing this exciting new line. . . Look for ordering details in my June blog!

    January 2010


     

    This is my 17th year of writing a monthly newsletter/blog. 

    I always channel the content; my Spirit Guides tell me exactly what they want me to pass on to my readers each month.  Each year has some sort of cosmic, or – you might even call it Divine – theme to it:  every month has its own component, related to that bigger theme. 

    This past year’s theme has had to do with the concept of creating more prosperity.

    This first year of the new decade, 2010-2019 has to do with the concept of hope.   The Webster’s online dictionary definition of hope:  “a feeling that what is wanted is likely to happen; desire accompanied by expectation.”

    Many people these days are feeling an absence of purpose in life, a lack of belonging, virtually very little hope…  By the way, belonging happens to be a very important aspect of human nature; see below specific information related to belonging (Maslow’s Hierarchy).  Also most people today tend to have at least some aspect of being “ungrounded”.   This always contributes to depression, even despair and hopelessness (much more on this, in coming months...). 

    Something to know about hope is that it is difficult to understand it’s true deeper meaning if you’re totally mired in a lot of issues.  I.e., in order to be able to grasp the true aspect of hope, you need to be partially through from some of the more heavy issues, and able to see some light (even if it’s a long way away) the end of the proverbial tunnel.

    If you read this blog every month during this year, by the end you will be feeling more grounded, more spiritually connected to your life’s purpose and in more of a manifestation mode -- at least! 

    The concept of hope is generally misunderstood.  When people use the word, it’s usually in a wimpy way, such as “I hope I passed my test even though I didn’t study” or “I hope I’m going to have enough money to last through the end of the month until I get paid again”.   Examples such as these do no good towards getting what the person saying it wants; it’s actually even counterproductive.  Most people use hope in a wimpy way, but in reality there’s a hidden message in hope and if you use it as a spiritual energy then there is attached to it some, at least, of the results you want. 

    There is a power integral to the concept of hope...  If you see it as being, like everything else, an energy with a high spiritual value – you will find that some of the results you want are actually contained within it.  Much more on this coming up in future months.

    In order to work with the true meaning of hope, it’s important to realize that hope is an essential level of human growth.  As are many facets of life, such asbelonging.

    Abraham Maslow was an American psychologist who created a theory decades ago, still valid today re understanding human motivation, personal development and even management training.  In his 1954 book, “Motivation and Personality”; he introduced the concept he called the Hierarchy of Needs

    In this five-stage model, Maslow came up with different, vital stages of human development, the very most basic ones needing to be handled before one is able to move to a higher state of being. 

    Here are the five stages (beginning at the bottom):

    Self-actualization:    Personal fulfillment, desires met, self-expression, 
                                      creativity, becoming visionary, spontaneity, mastery, 
                                      strategy towards achieving goals

    Esteem needs:         Personal growth, self-esteem, achievement, status, 
                                      acknowledgement (such as trophies), confidence
                                      volunteering, respect of/by others, reputation, fame, 
                                       benchmarks other people live by, acquisitions/wealth,
                                       popularity

    Belongingness/       Workplace relationships, friendships, family, following 
    Love needs:            gurus, social networking, partnership, romance; affection, intimacy, commitment, clubs

    Safety/Security needs:  Body, home, financial stability, morality (such as religions 
                                            provide), laws, education, transportation

    Basic Life needs:    Food, water, shelter, clothing, warmth, sex, sleep

    When I was discussing with my Spirit Guides how to address the concept of hope, they surprised me by telling me that the deepest sense of hope behind what most people think about) is that it totally relates to, vibrates at and is contained within the fourth level of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs: 

    From what they have told me, one has to achieve a certain level of sophistication spiritually and emotionally before one can actually grasp how to “be” with the concept of hope and begin to work with it in a useful, productive, transformative way…  Anyone working with “hope” that is weak, is probably in denial in some way and won’t be able to grasp what true hope can actually do for them. 

    This is such an important concept that I’ll be working with this throughout the year.

    Happy, Hopeful, 2010 to You!

    • I love understanding how to work with the deep meaning of Hope.
    • Hopeis my mantra for 2010.  I believe that hope in it’s truest meaning is my Divine right, my Divine support.
    • My deep hope is that 2010 is full of success, prosperity and happiness.

    Mercury Retrograde Dates for 2010

    Every year, I note the dates when the planet Mercury will be in its retrograde phase.  When Mercury is retrograde it has a very strong influence on everything having to do with communication and transportation:  Conversations, contracts, delays in travel, important emails getting lost – you name it, it happens!  During each time that Mercury is in retrograde pay particularly close attention to EVERYTHING you say, do or think about all of your contacts, trips, plans and agreements…  This is true for approximately two weeks before Mercury goes retrograde and two weeks after it goes direct.
