Spiraling Up

Channeled Messages

Dimensions of Light

In our ongoing process of spiritual growth, we are called to discover more light within ourselves and more light within the world. As we expand our light, we experience a natural longing to reach higher dimensional states that contain new and different qualities of light.

Most people are stuck in the third dimension where their light is heavy and dense. When we have a disease or unhealthy pattern, the light of our aura becomes temporarily clouded and muddy. In the density of the third dimension, our light is opaque, like flat paint.

Keep the Baby

Keep The Baby

As we grow and evolve, we rise to new energetic levels at which things have to change in order for us to keep spiraling up. It seems as if the old ways no longer fit us, even when they once provided great support and were once a great passion for us. I have learned in these times to pause and get really clear about what to let go of, what to keep, and what to transform.

Once when I was preparing to go to India for a three-week training, my mentor gave me advice that has helped me remain clear about this process.

Catfish Story

My partner, Andre, has a lovely aquarium full of fish. He feeds them twice a day and enjoys watching them chase after their food. He talks to them and checks to make sure they are all healthy and happy.

Last summer, the big catfish disappeared. At first we though he might be hiding inside the artificial hollow rock structure. But he was not coming out to eat, not even when Andre tried to coax him out with shrimp pellets, his favorite food. There was no sign of him. After a few weeks without seeing him, Andre concluded that he had died and that the other fish had perhaps eaten him.

A Pearl of Wisdom for the New Year

Meet Pearl. She is one of my greatest teachers. Trust me when I tell you that it was not easy getting her to sit still for this head-shot. She reminds me to be active, to play often, and to maintain high levels of enthusiasm in all that I do. I recently gave her an almost-empty peanut-butter jar. I thought she would enjoy licking out the remains. As you can see, Pearl has a smashed-flat face. Her tongue is not terribly long and it does not hang out of her mouth, not even when she pants. I figured she would maybe be able to get to the peanut butter in the top quarter of the jar.

The Star of Bethlehem

I remember being fascinated in Sunday school about the magical star that led the three wise men to the Christ child. The story did not make sense to my conscious mind—how could a star lead the way? But somehow the three kings followed this blaze of light that appeared out of the darkness. And it guided them to discover a birth that was precious and radiant and filled with hope.

Ever since my earliest memories, I have seen a bright white light inside my head when I close my eyes. It is not there all of the time.

Blessings of Gratitude

Thanksgiving Prayer

This morning I am filled with gratitude for my soul path. Holidays are a time when we experience flashes of memory about our past: what we did on this same day so many years ago, who we were with, what we were feeling at the time. For me this mini life-review serves as a reminder of how far I have come and how much I have changed. I am counting my blessings and there are so many blessings to count.
     I remember many Thanksgivings when gratitude was not so easily within my reach.

Freedom to Be As Is

     Do you ever get stuck in wanting things to be perfect—so stuck that you stop sharing your gifts with others? I recently had a huge lesson around this which I would like to share with you.
     A couple of months ago, I was approached by a newspaper reporter who wanted to do a story about me for the Arkansas Times.  His mother had heard me speak at a Conscious Awareness Network meeting and she recommended me to him as a subject for a column about people with interesting personal stories.

Contentment and Fulfillment

I invite you to join me this winter solstice in a process of deepening. It is time to go deep within to the recesses of soul that are always present but rarely experienced.
  • What truths are we hiding from ourselves?
  • What inner resources have we overlooked?
  • How can we go deeper into the light of who we are?
Some powerful words have been playing in my consciousness this week. They provide keys for the answers to these questions.
The first word isContentmentwhich contains the word

Should I?

Making Authentic Choices
    In the last few months, I have had many students and clients coming to me with the same dilemma. They are agonizing over whether or not they should take a certain class or training or series of sessions or initiations that another teacher or healer strongly recommended to them. The people I am referring to seem to be in pain as they contemplate the decision to take the recommended offering, or not. The idea of the particular class or offering has become an albatross around their neck—an unbearable burden.

Uniting Polarities

Have you Kissed Your Shadow Lately
     Today is the Autumnal Equinox, one of two days each year when we experience equivalent amounts of darkness and light. It is a great time for us to acknowledge the coexisting darkness and light within us as we center ourselves between these seemingly opposing forces.
     In 1997 I had a three day out-of-body experience that occurred spontaneously while I was praying to Blessed Mother Mary for Divine Assistance.
