Recently at a meditation group, I was led on a journey to meet my Divine Self. I was excited to see what wondeful things this Divine Self of mine is up to, since in my mind, she is the perfection of me. What could she teach me? What do I need to do differently, to improve on? I was guided to a little cottage with lights shining through the windows. I opened the door and entered the magical world of my own Divine Self.

There she was, standing in the kitchen, making dinner. I gasped when I saw her, taken completely by suprise. She was round, curvy and voluptious. My Divine Self is Goddess shaped! Her house was untidy, maybe even cluttered. Her kids were playing a game and laughing loudly. The home had a happy, loving energy that enveloped me. Soon Divine Self offered me a cup of coffee and sat with me at the table. I took this chance to ask her a lot of questions. It turns out, Divine Self loves hot baths, good coffee and lavender oil. She loves the moon and the night sky. She laughs and teases and plays. She eats meat! And she loves good wine. She adores animals and shares a deep connection with them. She sees the best in everyone, and loves unconditionally. She knows that all people have unmeasurable potential. She knows that people are inherently good. She cries when her heart hurts and she cries when someone she loves is hurting too. She wants our world to love freely and stop living with fear.
Divine Self helped me to understand that she is the best parts of me. She and I are one and the same, when I am operating in love. She loves me and wants me to live up to my full potential. She does not want me to struggle with finding perfection, since perfection is just an illusion. Instead, she wants me to learn to operate in love all the time, in every situation.

You, my friends, all have a Divine Self too. It is the best parts of you. My challenge to you is to connect to your own divine and celebrate all of the wonderful traits that are you.

Get over yourselves, you are perfect!

Recently Kara and I went to visit a terminally ill client. He is in full renal failure and is not expected to live much longer. I wasn't really sure why he wanted us to come, but felt strongly that we should go. As it turned out, he wanted to ask a lot of questions about death and dying. We had a deep and profound conversation with him. He was worried that he has not been a good enough person and that maybe some terrible judgement awaits him when he dies. It was clear to see that this man is well loved by his family and friends. He has done the best he could with the life that he had. I was saddened to think that he could possibly think that he has not been enough. Later that night, I shared that conversation with my dad. I was dumbfounded to discover that he shared similar fears about death and judgement. My dad, who is one the most well-loved people that I have ever known, is afraid that he has not been good enough. In both of these men, old worthiness issues were creeping in. I have been thinking a lot about this, I have decided that it is time to share my feelings on this very tender subject.

1- No dead people hate you. None. As a psychic, I do mediumship work from time to time. That means that I talk to dead people. I often work with clients who have regrets regarding passed love ones. Rest assured, my friends, grudges do not carry over to the other side. There is only one emotion that carries over and that is love. Love creates peace and joy. Your dad is proud of you. He adores you. Your grandma still pats you on the arm and tells you that she loves you. Even if you are making choices in your life that those people would not be happy with, they love your stinking guts. They don't care if you smoke, drink, or got divorced. They aren't watching to see if you go to church. They would even still love you if you kicked a puppy (but please don't). There is not one darn thing that you could do that would change it. Love does not die, fear does.

2- You are not going to hell, you're just not that badass. Seriously, you're not, even if there was such a place. Life is about learning and loving. I have read for countless people over the years, and I have yet to encounter someone who did not have a beautiful, incredible soul. People are good at heart. They may make decisions that are not in alignment with their best good from time to time. That happens to everyone. You'll have to figure those parts out after you die. Perhaps you will live another life that is similar to this one so that you can try again. Perhaps part of your life was to help someone else learn and grow. Did you learn to love unconditionally, forgive those who wronged you and take care of those in need? Did you laugh until your sides hurt, show gratitude for the incredible life that you were granted and make the most out of the time that you had? Then you are golden. If you didn't, you're still golden. You still get to enjoy a beautiful existence on the other side with your family and friends. The richness of this life is yours to gain because it is wonderful, not because it is required.

3- "Worthy" is a filthy word and has no place in your life. I hate that horrible word, worthy. It leads to the assumption that some people are better than others. That you, due to some choices or financial status or family situation are somehow not able to receive the gifts of the Universe that others enjoy. I call bullshit. You are "worthy" because you exist. Every single one of us is on the same level and every single one of us deserve to be happy and taken care of. You can do, be and have anything you want because you are you. When you die, the same theory applies. You are enough, right now and after you die.

Now that we have gotten these key points out of the way, go forth and do good. Do it because you want to. Do something on your bucket list because it makes you happy. Forgive an old hurt because you like being free. Show gratitude for all that you have because you are so blessed. We are all terminal from the first breath we take. It is time, friends, to live like you are dying.

2012: Time to live like it is the last year on earth

Here it is, the moment we have all been waiting for! 2012 has birthed. Of course, the fated date will not be here for nearly 12 more months, but still....everyone is talking about it. The end of the world, the apocolypse, the second coming and so on. I don't believe that we are done after this year by any means, but I am acutely aware of the change going on all around me.

First of all, the weather. The weather here in Idaho has been very strange the last few years. Late winters, early winters, long springs, rainy seasons in June and July, low summer temps, etc. Take year, for example. Usually by the end of December we have a foot or few of snow on the ground and we are gearing up for the subzero temps that Januaray usually dishes out. This year, however, it has been in the 40's nearly every day for the last 2 weeks. We have no snow in the valleys and we are running around in jackets. I have been seriously tempted to get the lawnmower out and do some yard work. This is really bizzare weather for us.

Secondly, people are starting to notice and care more. We have seen more activism around the planet this last year than we have seen anytime in recent history. From the Middle East to Africa to Europe to the USA, people are waking up. They are unable to follow the status quo any longer. They are realizing that the change they seek must begin with them. It has been beautiful and inspiring to see.

Third, time is flying by. For realsies.
“Time is actually speeding up. For thousands of years the Schumann Resonance or pulse (heartbeat) of Earth has been 7.83 cycles per second, The military have used this as a very reliable reference. However, since 1980 this resonance has been slowly rising. It is now over 12 cycles per second! This mean there is the equalivant of less than 16 hours per day instead of the old 24 hours." (
This fact does not suprise me at all, nor do I think it will suprise you. The times are changing, and they are changing fast. Here is another very interesting article about this phenomenon from scientist Gregg Braden's point of view.

What does all of this change mean? It means that it is time to get with the program. I see this as a time to jump on the change train. 2012 is your year to make so much happen. It is, without any doubt, time to start living your dreams. Evaluate your life. No one is going to drop the curtain on us at the end of the year, but I suggest that you start living like they are. Laugh more, have more fun and most of all, LOVE MORE! Take charge of your life and become the CEO of you and your destiny. It is all up to you now. I, for one, cannot wait to see what you do with it.
