“With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things.” -William Wordsworth“With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things.” -William Wordsworth

You will never find harmony if the only way you can be happy is to have everyone else happy. First transform yourself. Your life in harmony, joy and health can then be a great source of nourishment for others starving for spiritual food. Find your true nature, your divine essence. Flow with your inner knowing in this exceptional moment sowing positive seeds of empowerment and awakening. Change in yourself is changing the world, for you are the most beautiful being living a purpose filled life. Keep moving forward without fear, and then the outcomes are brimming with courage.

When we allow our heart to connect to our higher consciousness it breaths a sense of harmony and peace into the world and us. We have an awareness of the calming nature that heart rhythm brings. Creating meaningful currents pulsing to the depths and ripples on the surface of any situation. Enthusiastically share the harmony. Experiencing the harmony within allows us to experience the harmony of the world around us. We are on the threshold of a momentous time when more and more people are embracing the path to awakening and living with purpose. This has the potential to help many relieve suffering and have more fulfilling lives.

harmony3Let us unroll our beliefs down to our core being, and examine them; there we find the root of our being is Love. Harmonize with the love at our core allowing it to cultivate our thoughts and actions in loving focus, so we may once again become our wholeness. Speak positively, hopefully, thankfully, and above all with that core of love. Allow your words of love to heal and create seeds of positive action. We release any disorders by refusing to give them any thought or energy, in that way we speak in harmony. We also recognize that our speech resonates in every word with our Being, leaving a lasting impression.

Happiness is simple after all; we need only keep harmony within our being. Within our divine nature there is a purity of spirit that is part of the greater oneness. Instead of looking outward for happiness look within to know your divine nature, there harmony and happiness resides.

Inspiration is the Doorway to Spirit Communication. Inspiration is the Doorway to Spirit Communication.

We all have something in life that draws from that creative state within our being, and leads us to our inspiration. This process is very similar to meditation, in that, insights come to us from somewhere beyond ourselves. Each and every one of us holds the same power to create from our inspiration. The time has come for us to develop our creativity and recognize we are tapping into the intuitive process.

When we work with whatever creative endeavor we enjoy, we naturally begin to relax. This is totally normal, and in this relaxed state of being we may focus our awareness on more than just what we are creating. We can use this time to look at what’s going on in our life to make decisions, to look at issues, and possibly find solutions to our concerns.

The creative process can take us even further...The creative process can take us even further, if we allow ourselves to be aware, open, and receptive to all forms of experience. Creativity can access our own Divine love that exists within our higher consciousness. We can move beyond the mental musings of our mind, and connect to the collective psyche of the universe. Once we open these doorways we can bring them into our daily lives, enriching ourselves and those around us.

Once exposed to Divine Love, we break through our physical and mental barriers and are forever aware of our greater state of Being and interconnection to all life. With this spiritual connection we fill our actions with loving attention, thus, walk down the path of spiritual maturity. This is true Spirit communication from our source to our intellect and our ability to act.

If Not Now... Then WhenCreative spiritual maturity is needed today in our local communities, nations, and the world. More and more we need to push open that door in our heart and mind to let the light stream out were it is visible for all to see. Share our valuable new found ideas, expand them with other creative men and women working for a promising radiant future, filled with equitable solidarity and peace.

Becoming "Authentic Beings"As we traveled across the country these past two months on our book tour,

I gave many talks. One message that Spirit kept giving over and over was, that to flow through the increasing shifts that are coming quicker and quicker, spiritual people will benefit by developing into Authentic Beings.

This leads people to ask “What does Spirit mean by Authentic Beings?” This came up so many times that Cindy and I felt it would make a wonderful topic to reinvigorate our newsletters and blogs that had fallen silent during our journey.

To become Authentic we have to develop a new way of Being.

If we focus on the prime element of Love and being heart centered then we begin to think and act with loving intention. Love is the key to being “Authentic,” yet many people across the country have reminded me, “It is hard to stay focused on loving intentions in todays world.”

I agree. Yet we must develop the discipline despite the challenge and it all starts simply with a deeply sincere and solemn intention to work toward living with loving intentions. Let’s start developing our own personal practices, as opposed to just reading the theories. Just like recommended in the noble eightfold path, it’s time we start taking steps and developing right action now. Our Being instinctually knows what is loving; we only need to instill it into our way of living one step and one day at a time. That is a marvelous way to begin and once we step down that path we are making a difference.

We are all a part of this universe, so we are all a part of the shifts we see today. It is a serious responsibility we all share to make our future and the future of our children a more verdant and peaceful place. As we become more heart centered in our daily tasks we contribute to those goals. Along with a heart centered lifestyle runs parallel the necessity of mindfulness or living with a focus on this moment. The more we focus on this moment, trying to do our absolute best, we are continuously working for a better tomorrow.

This is an ancient way of living that is being brought forward and melded into todays lifestyles to create a togetherness and coherence of old and new. Living in connection to our heart is living a spiritual life. Our true being resonates to this new way of being, supporting us with guidance, enhancing our light connection and inspiration. Gratitude and giving back to our circles and communities is an important part of this lifestyle. It allows us to share our inspiration, our spark of light with those around us, igniting their light and love. In this way we build stronger communities based on mutual respect and cooperation.

Always know we are human and sometimes we fall down, but we can use our failures to strengthen our spiritual transformation. If we learn from our missteps, we add considerably more knowing to our consciousness and to the greater all. We pick ourselves up and continue on our paths toward developing into Authentic Beings.

Remember~ Authentic means “of undisputed origin,” let us live true to our hearts in all ways, lifting our loving intentions for the greater good for all, that way we are being true to ourselves and authentic.

Authentic means "of undisputed origin,"

Fear of death is like the way we fear our first day in a new class. We have some anxiety, apprehension and fear of the unknown. But those of us that have died and returned have had our introduction to the class and the other students. We found that we really liked the subject and the other souls we found there. We know there is going to be some intense study ahead. But we are looking forward to it. So in the meantime we are doing our pre-course requirement. In this life I plan on gaining as many experiences so I can bring them back to the class for examination when the time is right.dv1644057

No longer having the fear of death gives an incredible freedom. Freedom to live life unbridled and to it’s fullest. Filled with joy and gratitude with each encounter or experience. It also gives a sense of calm and ability to relaxe, no longer needing to get caught up in the rat race.

Not that I do not participate in life. On the contrary, I want more than ever to live a full life.  Carrying on through hardships and good times overcoming and taking it all in. I try to keep as positive as I humanly can through all times. When I can accomplish this there comes a sense of completion.

That is usually when something synchronistic will occur and signal the end of one course or the beginning of a new path/direction to move toward. If I have Learned anything from my experiences it is to FOLLOW THOSE SYNCHRONISTIC EVENTS in life. There is always more to it and even though I can’t see the bigger picture when it is happening I know it will reveal itself at the right time and place.

Some times it seems too good to be true. That we can connect to the greater universal consciousness but when it does happen I can physically feel my heart opening and filling my being with that warm love and acceptance. I sometimes feel like it is lager than me and projecting beyond my physical self. It is when I am in that place that I can see my light and sometimes the light of others. Also at time like this is when spirit speaks soft loving encouragement to keep moving forward and giving me the strength to take on what is next in this wonderful journey.


Please watch my video using the song “How could anyone” the words are so moving and inspiring I had to make a quick video that i could use at presentations. Every time I use it, it brings people to tears knowing how perfect and whole we already are. Enjoy

Dying is hard but returning to life is even more difficult and challenging.

What the heck am I talking about? I died in a boating accident and drowned in 1983. You can read about my Near-Death Experience (NDE) on my website, but what I want to share here is some of the life altering aftereffects an NDE can bring about in an experiencer’s life. Just think about it one minute and you can understand the conflict of living a life that is confining and limited in our physical form. When in the light we have an unlimited ability to connect to the universal all. It is an incredibly loving experience that is humbling beyond words. But back to life and living in this world after such an experience.

First I’d like to look at judgment. In my NDE there was an all all-encompassing life review that was shared with my soul group of light beings. The review looked at every detail of my life, good and bad. So you can imagine I did not want to share my most unsavory moments in life with this group of beings. I was judging myself, but the most marvelous thing was, my family of light beings were not. They were emanating a pure love that was unconditional so there was no judgment attached. In the Light you also see the interconnection between all living and non living things in our universe. In addition to that every time we have an interaction with someone or something there is an energetic exchange. In physical life we can barely notice this exchange unless we train our selves to be more sensitive. Well, I can say that every time I used judgment against someone in my life review it created an energetic exchange that was disruptive and blinded me to the true nature of the situation or person. The ripples caused by those exchanges were even more disturbing than I knew. The more energy I put into a wrongly judged event the more far reaching the ripples of effect would range outward beyond my perception.

When returning to life after that experience I wanted to become as loving and nonjudgmental as my light family. But experiencers bump into a world of judgment not just being judged about the NDE but we feel judged about everything.  A leopard can’t change his spots that quickly. We have lived a life full of habits that don’t change in an instant. Some times we can fool ourselves to think we can change that fast but it takes an effort to develop new habits.  In life we have these wonderful emotions that can be attached to our judgment and when that happens most of the time we blind ourselves to the truth. Many times we rush passionately forward unknowing the truth only to create suffering.  After many mistakes we remember the NDE and slowly change. You can not be exposed to that much unconditional love without it changing the way you work and think. Some in the NDE community call it a re-wiring of the mind psyche. What ever it is, it happens to most experiencers and it changes the way we live our lives. We can’t help it. Many people see us as detached because we don’t want to jump to judgment. That is not true, we are much more attached than ever and trying to see as clearly as we can in this bodily form. We will use discernment and look at things with our hearts until we feel we know the truth. But we are as human as the next person so we are fallible. Seeking truth requires patience to get beyond the drama that life presents us on a daily basis. Our judgments create the greatest suffering including stress and disease. One only has to live in this world to see the suffering that judgment brings. So becoming a little less judgmental is not a bad thing and very desirable to everyone not just experiencers.

Another thing that happens when we return is we are striped of the false personas we had spent our whole life developing. We had developing false personas to show the world what we wanted them to see us as. We wanted to appear smarter, stronger, confident, altogether, or maybe beautiful and standing tall. What ever we made up, we used these personas for different life situations. We were hiding our true self so no one could reach us and that way we were protecting ourselves. Well, what happens is we get such an in-depth look at our true nature in the NDE, that we can accept who we are without all the false trappings. We are far from perfect and know our faults, but how can we develop non judgment if we pickup those old false personas and are not showing our true selves. It can be terribly frightening at first striped bare and exposed. But to develop non judgment you can no longer mislead someone else into a false judgment. We have to be truthful and clear to avoid false judgment. After you step out as yourself you see no one can really harm your true nature because it is a part of the Universal All.

Near-Death Experiences can give everyone of us wonderful tools for living. Living life as our true self with less judgment is just one tool in the box. I know I’m trying to use this instrument as often as possible.
