Shift your body, shift your mind and shift your heart to make room for a new point of contact. Create space for God’s love to land. Allow the miracles to flow sweetly to you, through you and all around you.
My husband and I were standing next to the large raft that would be carrying us through the rapids of the White Salmon River. Our Guide, Mike was instructing us on how to achieve the most powerful Point of Contact between the oar and the river. I was immediately reminded of my thoughts during a hike the previous day.
On the hike, I paused long enough to fully absorb the message I was receiving. We need to shift our thoughts and behaviors enough to create a space for God’s love to land. Space was created on the dirt path. God arrived, I listened.
The past week I attended a Celebrate Your Life Event at Skamania Lodge, in Washington. The speakers brought forth both old and new thoughts and energy in their words. The guests brought their own energy, ideas and beliefs into the retreat. We were surrounded by excitement, love, grief, healing and the energy of miracles. The space was filled not just with people, but spirits and life changing energy.
When I am surrounded by this magnitude of energy my ability to sleep decreases and I need even more solitude. I took to the near-by dirt trails. I appreciated the silence as the feelings and energy that were not mine, slipped away. Solitude is when I listen best and clarity is established.
One of my walks led me to a moss covered wooden bench. It was next to a small lake. The water near me was moving with big splashes. At my feet two river otters played. Their bodies would wind around each other, both in and above the water. They took breaks from playing to grab a bite of vegetation. This was a great reminder to bring playful energy into everything!
We can find spiritual meaning and messages in every moment. We only need to stop and listen. Many spiritual teachers speak of coincidences; or that there are no coincidences, only messages, confirmations and miracles.
The opening ceremony of the Celebrate Your Life Event was held in the evening. We were allowed to find our seating of choice. Each chair held a beautifully colored bag with something magical inside. I choose my seat near the back.
Denise Linn stepped up on the stage and shared a powerful story of survival, healing and love. My attention was caught. She invited us to take out two little pieces of paper from our bag. We first wrote down what we are ready to let go of. What doesn’t fit into our life anymore. On the second piece of paper we wrote down what we are welcoming into our life. This is a tried and true exercise to bring attention to our life.
I am ready to let go of the frustrations I experience in the dark Alaskan Winters. My thoughts travel too often to the cold and dark. This is not a good fit for me.
On my second paper, I welcomed a home for my winters in Phoenix Arizona. This dream will offer long summer Alaskan days and warm Arizona winters. After writing our intentions, Denise asked us to pull out the card that each one of us had in our bag. These were from her Oracle deck. Each card shared a unique message.
My card was a picture of the rising Phoenix. My Phoenix home! This absolutely delighted me! I love messages, how- ever they come to me. I am still celebrating this confirmation of my Arizona home. Thank you Denise!
Each bag also contained a river rock. It was fitting for my husband and I to seek the rapids on the river. We needed to clear what no longer is serving us. We needed to clear a space in our hearts, minds and soul for a point of contact with Spirit.
Resist the urge to control or other - wise not be your true self.
The truest version of you, the purest version of self, is made of such finite particles, that even gravity can’t control.
We are all able to dance and move freely..
Breathe in the breadth of the stars..
Breathe in the wisdom of all human kind.
Breathe in the depth of the human consciousness..
Allow this to blend with the energy of all..
As this weaves a new vision for us to all share..
Sit back and allow God to land at your feet..
Allow God to land in your heart, mind and soul..
You see this was the plan all along.. You would awaken and be mystified by the Beauty of all that has occurred with in you..
As you sift thru the clearest visions of self.. some images are released.. others transform before you..
This is the space that allows the point of contact.
This brings in the energy of Source so strong and pure.
As it lands there is a great expansion that lifts away any doubts of why you are here.
Take my hand and see yourself thru the eyes of one that loves and honors you. You have discovered the truth.
Allow yourself to unwind and pull away from all that is not your highest being.. All that remains to be done is breathe in and live..
Move within the realms of the highest force..
Breathe within the highest realms..
A place was saved just for you.

Gratitude for all that touched my life this week. The river guides of Wild Water were awesome; both Mike and Shafer.
Sending lots of love to everyone! May we all enjoy our amazing adventure!
I arrived home with suit cases to unpack and responsibilities waiting for me. Occasionally after traveling, there is a slight lag in my enthusiasm for house hold chores. Other times, I love opening windows, lighting candles and getting to work. It just depends on how I’m feeling.
That day, I had to do something to stir up the energy, not just in my mind, but my body. It felt like low energy was filling up the space around me. I needed a little something to make me feel awake, alive and inspired. I put the challenge out to my family, what activity were they up for? We all love being outside, but I needed something out of my comfort level. I knew that if I did something with a little fear factor, it would wake me up.
The answer was easy... Zip lining. I have always declined zip lining on family vacations. I don’t like the height, or the lack of control. Perfect; two things for me to work on, letting go of control and letting go of my fear of height.
Reservations made! I unpacked my suit case and began to look forward to a new adventure. As soon as the commitment was made, I felt better. My body and mind responded to the idea of an adventure. I felt lighter. A heaviness disappeared and things began to flow.
We arrived early and walked around the town of Talkeetna, Alaska... Tourists from all over, explored the small town. Everyone enjoying the sun and life’s adventures, dialed up my energy even higher.
Before we stepped off the platform, we did a practice run. I was a little nervous. Sometimes I forget instructions. This particular Zip line, had step by step directions, to prevent a crash landing. I’m great at jumping off… not so good at making a graceful landing. This is true in my life and my zip lining skill set.
The struggle was real when it came time to pull it all together. Following directions while sailing through the canopy of trees was a challenge. If I came in too fast it wouldn’t be pretty.
Much of life, I do the work, close my eyes, and send it off with a prayer. For example, getting an article published; I write and send it off with a blessing. Other times it takes both action, with eyes wide open, and prayer to get what you want.
The message was clear. Figure out your destination. Where do you specifically want to land? What do you need to do to ensure a safe, successful landing? Good advice for life and zip lining.
Mission accomplished. My landings were not perfect, but good enough. I made my family laugh, a lot! I felt so much better and even stronger, after being outside, using my body, and saying yes to a challenge. This was good for my heart, mind and soul!
Believe in the enormity of all possibilities and opportunities that await you. Reach for them. Glance in the direction that allows everything to unfold with the sequence of unimaginable ease...
We are nearing the point of not recognizing one another through the eyes of time... When we escape the idea of time... we are together again, experiencing all the joys of love, light and awareness. It is as simple as lifting the veil that holds us tethered to grief, for love lost and confusion. This is a matter of heart, mind and soul... I have, we have, been waiting for you to remember how to reach us...
Rest your mind and let your heart lead you to us... there is no need to be anything other than your beautiful self... We have witnessed miracles unfold all around you. We have witnessed miracles with in you... Let us show you the way to break free of all restrictions, boundaries and disciplines.
Know every - thing you no longer need is removed... You work in harmony with the light in and around you... What doesn’t serve you, has evolved...
You have been released to experience the height of your human potential.. Experience the love that guides you...
You are shifting into a magnet for the unimaginable.
Relax and feel the pull of light settling and darkness being released... You have made it to the other side... in this human form you will experience physical awareness, mental acuity and over all wellness.
Are you ready for the task at hand? Trade in your fears for resiliency, awareness and joy...
Share the words that bring awareness and light into the heart of all. It is this light that is woven into the minds of all who share in the knowledge of Devine Love. We are spiritual beings coming together as one. The call to create is growing louder, the call to help is becoming stronger... The direction is more clear than ever... We have a place for you in our plan of light.

I wrote this blog, because sometimes we need to physically move. It is possible to feel stagnate energy being released. This can be done a million different ways, laughing, physical movement, mental challenges, what- ever calls you to inspired energy.
As I wrote this, it was a good reminder that often action is needed to supplement our prayers. It sets our intention and tells the Universe we are serious!
Sending lots of love to everyone! May we all enjoy our amazing adventure!
About 14 years ago I was sharing an inflatable kayak with my husband. The sun was out. The river was winding thru the tall, red rock walls outside of Moab, Utah. Really everything was perfect. The only thing outside of that moment was my attention. I was missing my children. They were visiting my ex-husband and his family.
My mind was going to the places of what if…. things out of my control.
I noticed the water was moving faster. In the distance there were some boulders surrounded by rapids. I brought this to my husband’s attention. He was not too concerned with the churning water. I was getting more and more worried. We only needed to go farther to the right, or farther to left to avoid the biggest boulder.
As my attention focused more intently on potential disaster, it became less likely we would avoid it. My husband remained calm. The nose of the kayak was grabbed by the whirlpool. I fell out of the kayak into the swirling water. My husband remained in the kayak and passed me by. I grabbed hold of the boulder and attempted to stand in the place I had wanted to avoid.
I was so mad! From the shore a man yelled instructions at me. I held tightly to the rock. He called, “let go, it will be alright”. I kept my tight grip. The rapids continued to hit me. The water splashed in my face, I could not see clearly. I refused to let go. My grip kept me in the exact place I was afraid of.
The man on the shore took some pictures of me lost in my fury. I refused to trust and let go. Looking back; it is funny. I also realize this is exactly how life is. When I finally became tired of the battle, I let go. The river carried me gently away from my fear. All along it was up to me to let go and trust.
In our wonderfully responsive world we have the ability to bring rapids and boulders to life. Worrying about the worst case scenario is welcoming churning energy somewhere into our life. I was worried about my young children. They were miles away from me. My worry and stress created a perfect place for me to sit and hold onto the anger of a situation from the past.
Another time this was so perfectly illustrated in my life involved a medical condition. My health was at stake and the answers and diagnosis were not easily found. I established myself in a spiral focusing on bad health, getting more medical tests and waiting. It was not until I let go, and decided no more tests, that wellness was found. I let go of the thing I feared most, bad results, death and dooms day. I stepped away from the medical model and found peace. I found the deep peace that I share with others today.
Letting go of my fear is what changed my life. Releasing my fears allowed me to make a connection to the Universe, God, and Angels or whatever you want to call our higher power. It was my fear that was blocking the connection.
I know to let go of what we hold onto so tightly can be really challenging. Maybe if we recognize fear as holding onto the very thing that we are afraid of, we can let go of what we dread most. Let go and trust you will be guided to a better place. A place where peace resides. In fact, that place is within you, all you need to do is let go and trust.
Let go of the anger for others. Let go of the fear that circles around relationships. Let go of the feelings of powerlessness that swirl throughout your life.
What is the boulder you are hanging on to? What is causing the rapids in your life? Are you ready to let go?
Imaging floating down the river, safe and the sun in your face. Your friends from many times are with you. J
Allow images of peace, angelic creations, energy so lite and beautiful it lifts you to a state of awareness and understanding to a place where fear does not reside. We call your attention to an area within that holds memories of peace and protection all guaranteed to you. You are always guided, always protected. Messages are always being shared with you. You only need to shift your awareness to resonate with love, in its entire untarnished form.
Fear is a place we cannot reach. It doesn’t exist.
Look up and you will discover our light. We call you to recognize you too carry the ability to lift others up to a state of grace and awareness. As this universal shift occurs within and all around you, there is no fear. We trust that all is well. We have turned the corner in the most majestic way. We trust that awareness is rising and love is available to all. Thank you for sharing your words with us. As we guide you into higher awareness and you are becoming high vibrational beings, we call to include all. We have created a blanket of light that allows each and every being to lift their attention to awareness. Each has their own ideas and paths that will bring them to a place where peace resides. Trust there is no wrong. Our paths wind through one another creating the fabric that has woven love throughout. This is shared thru eternity. The light forms a special bond between you, us and all. Trust and all will be revealed. In gratitude we share light energy. Allow a deep breath in, feel the vibration of peace and love, release your worries and experience the forgiveness of light. And so it is.

I was asked to write a blog on letting go, so here it is. May we each have the strength and awareness to set ourselves free.
Many blessings of love, light and compassion,
One of the greatest gifts we can offer each other is our true attention. A spell of inspiration and confidence is cast, when everything else is put aside. The message is sent. I care about you.
Really listening is taking the time to hear; with -out trying to control or fix what is going on in the speaker’s life. It is the act of being present. This is one of the most powerful things we can do, and it’s free.
What happens to relationships when people are not being heard? Partners, family and friends often begin to drift away. Sharing your presence with another deepens the trust and the invisible connection of love.
Are you listening to the loved ones in your life? Are you picking up the messages they are trying to share? All of us have fallen short at one time or another, in being present. Here is a little quiz to see how you are doing.
Make a list of your loved ones, include your animal friends, Angels, Guides, Universe and even those that have passed. Give each being, their own space on a piece of paper. Next to the name, write down the last time that individual had your undivided attention. How long has it been? When were you fully aware of their energy.
If you were gifted a message, what was it? Write it down. You may be inspired to reach out and listen. This is deserving of your attention.
The Universe is sending us messages. Just like we are sharing messages. There is nothing more powerful than being aware of the vibrational equation of all.
The Earth is sharing messages. Some are gentle and life confirming. Every Spring trees awaken and share beautiful new life. The snow melts and grass appears. The sun shines and the migrations begin. I love these messages. They remind me of the continuation of life.
We have other messages being shared. As a whole humanity has drifted from the connection with Earth. Our Planet is speaking louder. A reminder that humanity is only part of the equation of eternal life.
Our planet wants us to listen. We are asked to be present with the energy of Earth. There is nothing that needs to be controlled or fixed. Some believe it is too late for humanity’s survival. I believe it is perfect timing for us to reconnect with the ways of the Earth. Now is perfect. Trust what the Earth is offering.
The Earth is directing us to shift our view of the world. We are all connected. The water ways are changing and redirecting the patterns of migrations. Our foods will change. We will slow down to feel the vibration of everything. We are being shown a new way of living on Earth. We only need to listen.
When you sit in the presence of Earth, what messages do you receive? When do you feel most connected or aware of the Earth’s energy?
The message I receive from the Earth is of love and protection. I’m also shown how cultivating healthy and organic crops is sharing love. Caring for the animals and water is honoring the Earth. Caring for each other is honoring the Earth. We have nothing to fear.If we allow our-selves to listen and trust, we will be shown abundance, love and a life that holds sacred space for all.
You are a vibrational change pulling deeper into a new awareness.
Sit with your eyes closed and experience the love you are channeling. Feel the energy pouring thru you. You are bathed in love and lack of nothing.
You have the ability to understand the animals. You can feel the energy of the plants. You understand the rays of the sun.. You understand the language of water. This connection is taking you to a place of divine recognition. You are adjusting to the awareness of being all.
The wisdom that has always been with you awakens. It is lit by the high vibrations that move thru you.. A shift is occurring. You are able to experience the being of all.. Energy flashes. You experience the completeness of eternal wisdom. The mind of each being touches your soul. This awakens a surge of power. You understand your ability to communicate, to feel, hear and know all.
The is no longer a separation between you, Earth, animals or even the stars.. All is complete.
