"EVERYONE without exception is very, very special with extraordinary qualities and extraordinary powers. You just may not know it yet. The secret is to be, love and cherish yourself; it is to be your true essence. You are love and light, infinite wisdom and unlimited possibilities. Whatever you ask, you shall receive. You can have, be and do anything you want. You just need to choose what makes you happy in your heart. It is very simple. Remember, you are loved beyond measure for who you are and you are beautiful."

May 11th is Mother’s Day. May you celebrate this special day with love, kindness and appreciation for your Mother. Also, remember Mother Earth (Gaia) who everyday lovingly nurtures us with the richness of the land. She gives us everything to sustain us – so it is up to us to take care of her and to be thankful for having the opportunity to be part of this very special Planet.
I trust that the words on these pages plant beautiful seeds within you and that you all “bloom” into the beautiful flowers that YOU ARE. 2008 is the year of transformation, so many of us are in the process of releasing everything that no longer serves us – whether it be limited thinking, old beliefs and patterns, relationships that we are no longer in harmony with, jobs where we are not being in our passion and joy. It is difficult to let go of things that we are so “comfortable” with but the greatest reward is when we surrender, take that risk and trust that we will be supported in the “new” way of living. May your journey into “magnificence” be gentle and sweet.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly...
Thank you for being YOU.
In Love AND Gratitude, ME.

"Being happy is the cornerstone of all that you are!
Nothing is more important than that you feel good.
And you have absolute and utter control about that
because you can choose the thought that makes you
worry or the thought that makes you happy;
the things that thrill you, or the things that worry you.
You have the choice in every moment."
The Science of Deliberate Creation
This is Your Time to Bloom
By Carrie Hart
Open, open, little blossom. Spread your petals to the sun of life. Feel the energy running through the vine, all the way down to the roots. Feel the roots as they go deep, deep into the earth, pulling in sustenance.
Open, open little blossom. Feel the warmth of the sun. Feel the blessings that flow all around you. Feel the love that flows like a gentle breeze in the air and like a river underground. All around you flowing and humming, love, gentle and true, love to soothe your sorrows, love to remove your worries, love to heal what has been injured, love to cure what has grown ill, love to open your heart to the great flowing beauty of life.
Feel it and be one with it, the opening, flowing, blossoming life that is yours in this moment. The beingness that asks you to meld with it now. The energy of the shoot of grass as it pushes to the sun. The energy of the sun itself, as it burns and glows in the heavens. The energy of the floating clouds. All of this is you. All of this is one. All of this is.
Open, open, little blossom. This is your time to bloom. This is your time to be. This is the season in which you grow and open. And when this season is over and you drop to the ground, this adventure of a life ended, you will still be in the vine and in the roots. You will still be in the memory of the butterflies and bees that visited you. You will still be here in sprit, as you are now, a part of all that is. And one day, you will form again as a little bud, and it will be time yet again to grow and bloom, to experience this adventure of a life anew.
And each time you do this, each time you appear upon the vine and show yourself to the world, you will be born in ignorance of all the seasons that have come before. But each time, you will glow more vibrantly in your own way, all of the experiences of the seasons before distilled within you, purified and made into a more and more powerful force. And gradually, the world changes, as it is filled with more and more purified beings, their experiences making them stronger and more beautiful, more able to send their perfume out across the world, more able to project an energy of peace and love.
Your primary purpose is to build this energy within you during this time that you have. To build this energy of love and peace, to purify and strengthen your presence, your earth essence, through this experience. And if you do not accomplish all you might wish in the affairs of people during this lifetime, this season of blossoming, if you have simply lifted your energy higher, then you have done much, you have done enough.
For as your energy lifts, as your perfume strengthens, so is the world lifted and strengthened. You may think you do little, but it is no small thing to bloom. It is everything.
For your light is a light for all; your energy is a strengthening for all. Your presence in a lifted state, in an energized state, becomes a part of the energy that flows on the earth, and this energy joins and gathers force; this energy stays on the earth even after you have fallen to the ground, your season complete for the time.
So you have done your work and done it well, simply by lifting your face to the sun, becoming deeply present and one with this moment, and filling it with love and peace. This is a life well spent indeed.
Today and every day I AM creating a life filled with joy, creativity, purpose, and fulfillment.
Earth is a school wherein you seek to remember this truth ~ that God is in everyone and everything. Look first and find his love within your own hearts. Then you can appreciate it ever so much more beautifully in the hearts of the rest of creation.
A Letter from Deepak
We are the only creatures on the planet who can change our biology through our thoughts, feelings, and intentions. Our cells are constantly eavesdropping on our thoughts and being changed by them. When we fall in love, positive thoughts and emotions course through our body and strengthen our immune system. On the other hand, the dark thoughts and feelings of depression can leave us vulnerable to illness.
Over the past three decades, hundreds of studies have shown that nothing holds more power over the body than the beliefs of the mind. This is the quantum worldview, which teaches that we are all part of an infinite field of intelligence – the source of our thoughts, mind, body, and everything else in the cosmos. This paradigm, which is gaining increasing acceptance in the world of modern Western medicine, is based on the following ten assumptions:
The physical world, including our body, is a reflection of our perceptions, thoughts, and feelings. There is no objective reality “out there” that is independent of the observer. Instead, we create our bodies as we create our experience of the world.
Although the physical body seems to be solid matter, it actually is composed of energy and information. Quantum physics tells us that every atom is 99.9999 percent empty space, and the subatomic particles moving at lightning speed through this space are bundles of vibrating energy. These vibrations aren’t random or chaotic, but are carrying information along specific patterns.
The mind and body are inseparable. There is one single creative intelligence that can express itself as our thoughts – as well as the molecules of our cells, tissues, and organs.
Our consciousness creates the biochemistry of the body. Our beliefs, thoughts, and emotions direct the chemical reactions that take place in every single cell.
Perception is a learned phenomenon. The way we experience the world and our body is learned behavior. By changing our perceptions, we can change our experience of our body and world.
In every moment, impulses of intelligence are creating our body. By changing the patterns of these impulses, we can change ourselves.
Although to the ego-mind, we seem separate and independent, we are all part of a universal intelligence that governs the cosmos.
Time is not absolute. What we call linear time is simply a reflection of how we perceive change. In fact, time is eternal and changeless. If we can begin to perceive the changeless, time as we know it will cease to exist and we will experience immortality.
Our essential nature is pure being. Although we are used to seeing ourselves as personality, ego, and body, our true Self is eternal and unbounded.
Since our essence is immortal and changeless, we do not have to become victims of aging, sickness, and death. These are caused by gaps in our self-knowledge and the centuries-old delusion that our bodies are material. As Ayurveda teaches, any disorder can be prevented if we can maintain balance in the body, mind, and spirit.
These may seem like vast assumptions, but they are rooted in the findings of modern quantum physics. I want to encourage you to see that you are much more than your limited body, ego, and personality. At the deepest level, your body is ageless and your mind is timeless. Once you identify with this reality, you have unlimited freedom to create greater health, joy, and whatever else you wish to bring into the world.

OUR HIGHER SELVES - MEDITATION
We can begin to open a pathway to union with our higher selves by first practicing self-respect and self-esteem. Without this, a poor self-image could prevent gifts of the higher self from flowing into the personality. It is through meditation that we are enabled to contact the life of the higher self, so as to be nourished by its strength, wisdom and total love for us. We can relax and soften our body, emotions and mind in order to release much superficial tension. We can also choose to live more quietly and to simplify our lives. But when true contact is finally made it will result in the awareness of a new ability to think more clearly and with greater understanding. One will become more forgiving and have better rapport with others; knowing and feeling that there is a powerful presence within us – a wonderful source of healing, courage, strength, unconditional love and a new motivation.
We can draw our higher self to us through the following exercise.
Sit quietly and relax with several deep gentle breaths. Release unnecessary thoughts and identify with the higher self by visualizing or imagining a bright column of healing light that comes from above your head (where the higher self is located). See this enter your body and move downward radiating outward and bathing every organ and cell in your body with white light. Then see it continue down into the earth under your feet, grounding you into the planet. Now call lovingly to your higher self, inviting it to come forward and to co-create with you. Ask it to fulfil your life, to become your ultimate coach and partner in order to express its qualities. Your higher self loves you truthfully and totally and will reply to your request. But you must first begin this process through your desire and conscious invitation. Therefore it is the task of your personality self to become aware of the higher self, thereby achieving the state of higher consciousness. This is a major goal of spiritual development and self-realization.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

Be happy, happiness brings balance and peace in world. It is part of the medicine Earth Mother need's to heal.
