This was sent to me from my new friend, Donna Malus, creator of the Bowed Psaltery website, Psalterystrings.com This website, I am starting to see as my extended family. We all share a love of this very wonderful, magical Ethereal sounding stringed instrument. I love the picture of the dog and cat celebrating brother-sisterhood for all on this day of Gratitude. I have been doing group meditation with my guides and friends who want to continue to create in our physical world all the abundance, joy, love and beauty everywhere on the planet. The more experiences I have of Abundance showing up in my life when I focus on those experiences-I am shown that when we all do that, the world changes too. We can change the world by focusing on the abundance that is already here. When our virtual group comes together and we combine our mind-focus on the love, peace, compassion, generosity, abundance, balance, wholeness that is here in our lives-everywhere present in the world right now, we can rest assured we will see an example of the changes we are all creating. When we see it, we can say thank you for the “beauty” I am seeing when I look at my Four-legged kids, or when we see the mother who is lovingly holding her child, we can say, I am grateful seeing more of the love in the world and then we will see more of that. When I say Thank you for the deep love that my husband and I share; thank you our dear friends who are supportive, or the courteous driver that allowed me to safely merge into the lane. When we acknowledge the experiences, more comes to us. We start stretching our visualization skills and we will see these amazing things materialize. Start seeing the beauty and abundance in your life, it comes to you. Immerse yourself in the qualities of love, gratitude, joy without filters, they come to you. Then take it a step further-start visualizing for another-love and joy in their lives and see what happens. Abraham says that if we can visualize something for at least 27 seconds or more the changes start coming. We are sending out “rockets of desire”. Can you imagine that if a group of your friends came together and did this exercise, what wonderful things you could create for yourselves and others? I see that now. Today right now I am visualizing the world wrapped in love, joy and gratitude today.
I am cleaning out my music room to set up my recording/practice room for my new Psaltery Rose. I found some things I wonder why I saved them. I do have a tendency to hold on to things because they may be used for an art project, but I also recognize I can be a pack rat and by this in-action, I just stopped the flow of circulation. I can see my thoughts around finances is shifting, so maybe starting this project is another step in keeping the flow of my new found prosperity going. I have felt that good things keep coming-My mantra, “What is truly mine comes to me at the perfect time”. I was talking with my husband, David, laying in bed still trying to motivate myself to start my day. “You know, it is incredible that now being in my 50’s I am where I wanted to be in my 30’s. I am in a good marriage I am doing work that is challenging and fullfilling and our finances keeps growing. But I realize because it is happening now it is because I have cleared false beliefs I held regarding finances.” and David in his down to earth nature, says “that’s good Honey.” It is good and very good. Some people may feel that they were dealt a bad hand and will remain the same as it was 5 years ago. And yes, if your thoughts are the same, then you are right. If you start getting little glimpses of possibilities on how to change your life you are also right. I realized that when I started focusing on what would take place in a situation and visualized it for no more than 2 minutes a day or more, things would evolve in the the visualization. I started living my meditations. If you have a message that is like a groove in your brain the way you see the lines in a CD or DVD, ask someone to help you. I sure we alll know people who have attracted things in their lives that you would like to have in your life, ask them how they did it, what did they feel when they were thinking of having it. you might find out there is something you can start visualizing to open up your stream of consciousness. When my shift towards finding work that is fulfilling, attracting more opportunities to grow my consciousness it was a real eye opener. Because I realized more of how this works. I am like a broken record-life is to be enjoyed I see this everyday.
I have not written since a week before Mother’s Day. There is so much activity going on, that I am having so much fun, that I haven’t stopped time to write. But here I am now. I wanted to let you know what is going on. First of all, for Mother’s Day, David gave me an IPad! I had been wanting one for a while. I have been using my Ipod touch to record songs, but it is over 3 years old and couldn’t get the great software out there and the screen is a little too small for me to use the controls on the interface. So now the screen is so big and I have two great programs on my IPad-Studio MiniXL an 8 track recording studio and a program to write the chords and words for writing my songs. It has a scrolling device so I don’t have to carry my heavy songbook with me when I perform. I am also using my IPad for editing videos with the IMovie AP. it is so easy to use. The IPad is truly an amazing lifestyle tool.
I also got an IPhone and am now replacing my Sony Handicam. The quality is so much better. There are also accessories so you can attach extra mics and a tripod. I am streamlining my equipment so I only have to take my IPhone and a tripod-Amazing.
The trip to Mendocino was very fruitful. I had a wonderful time singing at the Mendocino Center. There was a lady who is a fellow animal activist and said that when we come up we can use her guest apartment. And I will be going up to Mendocino on a semi-regular basis. I am producing a new show up there called “The Paw Stops Here in Mendocino”. I shot my first show in May. I interviewed Kevin Williams who is a docent at Point Cabrillo Lighthouse along with his dog Dillon. Dillon is a very cute Boucion mix and has a lot of charisma. He even has a blog talking about life at Point Cabrillo and to get the word out about the proposed closure of the list of parks in California, for which Point Cabrillo is on the list. Kevin talked about what we can do so that doesn’t happen. We can change this. It would be a shame to not have access to these beautiful places. Show your voice and support.
I also interviewed Christine Olson Day who is the manager and owner of Gallery Bookshop in Mendocino. For 18 years, they had a store cat named Colette. She talks about the way Colette touched so many lives. It is so touching. Last but certainly not least. I interviewed the manager of the Surf Motel. This motel located on the main street of Ft. Bragg has been around for over 60 years. It is pet friendly. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Tune in when the show airs. I am also going to put it on my YouTube channel. I will send the link when I finished editing it.
I am also getting ready to do another concert for Any Dog Rescue. I love doing my animal activist work through song. It is such a gift for me to give back in this way. I feel I am living the life I have always created in my mind. I am using my gifts as a singer, painter, writer, peaceful animal activist. I wake up with joy and excitement for the new day. who knows what wonderful experiences will come to me today.
It can happen to you too. Breathe in and out. Focus on your joy; focus on things that make you happy. Focus on things that fill you with Gratitude and Grace. It is these very things that will come into your life the more you think about them. It raises your vibration, lowers your stress. When life throws you a curve. Recognize that your experience what you think about and your attitude about it. Yes, life is to be embraced, experienced in the present and enjoyed!
I took this title from a song I wrote. The name of the song is “The Realization-this song will be be going on my next CD. This is the 3rd step of what we “New Thinkers” call Affirmative Prayer. Actually I believe it is technically called “Recognition”. This is the step you are declaring that what you want in your mind is already here. When you name it and claim it-it is yours. I was telling a friend the other day that I feel as If I walked through the door of good fortune and many, many things are coming into my life. I have a wonderful job making a good income and working in a wonderful location-my home. In this job I utilize all my talents in fulfilling ways. I work for people who I respect who respect me. This is a dream job. I am also pursuing my interests as a singer, painter, writer, animal activist, photographer and videographer and getting paid. I have a loving marriage with a man who is fun to be with-has a good outlook in the world; he loves and respects animals as much as I do. He still knows how to make me laugh and can make me feel shy as if we were first dating (although we have been together almost 13 years. We have a close-knit multi-species family. Besides humans, cats and rabbits living in our house we have many plant babies. As I have gotten more tuned in, my plant babies will call me when it is time to water them.
I am not writing this with an intention to brag but to declare that when we realize that all good things deserve to come to us, that is what we receive. In Science of Mind, Reality means, your personal truth. So if I believe I can make money doing things that I love-I do. If I believe I deserve to be loved by a loving, sweet, sexy man with a generous heart, then he shows up (he did 34 years in high school and then reappeared in December 1999-I married him in 2001). If I can believe I can meet interesting people for my TV show, I do. If I believe that when ever I have a challenge I will be led to a solution-it comes in at the perfect time. This Reality is not only for the “chosen few” it is for anyone who is willing to go out of their comfort zone and open up to the possibility that you truly can create a life you enjoy. This consciousness came in for me in little bits and pieces at first, then as I got comfortable recieving, more and more things came in a consistent flow. Yes I have so much to be grateful for, I Realize this, accept this and claim it. And so it is!
Spring is the time for rebirth, renewal. I love this season. I can feel the energy of new growth all around me. I have a new CD, “Let Their Voice Be Heard” being released on March 25th along with the concert at the Vallejo Spiritual Center for Living; new job, new position serving on the Board of Trustees at my church. I am still having fun producing my show, The Paw Stops Here. My husband and I are still loving and liking each other. My 4-legged kids and I continue to evolve in our relationship. They listen more because I listen more. I had a conversation with a friend and said if you want to know how to communicate with your animals better, all you have to do is quiet your mind and listen.
The concert is shaping up nicely. Ed Rosenback, Lee Wingfield and myself were interviewed for the local paper, the article came out yesterday, http://www.timesheraldonline.com/ci_20201200/vallejo-church-concert-is-all-animals Rich Freedman did a great job and jokingly referred to us as Peter, Paul and Mary; I love their music so that was a big complement. This Friday, I am being inteviewed on the local Radio Station, OZCAT (that seems appropriate, being that it has Cat in the name!) I put a PSA on my TV station, VCAT (another name with cat in it, is this a theme?) My life is unfolding as if someone waved a magic wand and said what ever you want, just wave your wand and I do because the words I speak and declare is my wand (thank you Ernest Holmes).
Because my life continues to flow in harmonious ways. I know I am allowing my good to pour in. The CD and concert, My new job, my loving marriage, the great relationship I have with all our Four-legged kids-All these things are telling me that I am in alignment with the flow of spirit and the Law of Attraction is responding.
I have another opportunity to give my “Let Their Voice Be Heard” concert in San Francisco. There are things in the works for the Mendocino area. I love doing my spiritual work It is a jo(y)-not a jo(b). What is pouring into my life is an example of what can happen when you open your arms to receive and ask. That is what Jesus meant when he said, (I am paraphrasing) all these things I do you can do also. As a way of sharing my gratefulness. I want to close with a blessing:
The love of the Infinite Presence is with me today and always. It flows in everything I see, I feel, touch and I am one with this loving source that created me.
So I declare today that I continue to bless my gratitude that is flowing in my life right now all the love, the prosperity, the beauty, the joy is everywhere present and I also declare that every being on the planet also has the gifts of the Universe pouring in and as the waking mind of all the beings of the planet acknowledges this simple truth, the gifts are revealed in the perfect way.
I am so grateful for the many ways it manifests in my life and for all my brothers and sisters on the planet (in what ever form they are in).
So I release these words of joy to the Universal Mind of the Infinite Presence and I know that my words come back to me multiplied abundantly.
And so it is!
I finally got the PSA (Public Service Announcement) to play on my station, VCAT, Channel 27. I just wanted to share with you all. It is also on YouTube right now. Here it is without any further delay:
I am so excited. I just sent my concert evite to everyone in my email address book. If you are in the Vallejo area, I would love for you to support not only myself, but the rest of the guest singers/musicians participating. Here is the official flyer:
You can also go to my “Visions Alchemy Visionary Events. I mentioned this in an earlier post, but this is a dream of mine for 10+ years. It is finally manifesting. Part of the concert will have a presentation given by Rita from Loma Vista Farm to educate the community with all the wonderful things Loma Vista Farm has to offer. And because I am so grateful for my brother, Gabe and fellow musicians/singers, Ed Rosenback, Lee Wingfield and his son, Jim Wingfield. I wanted to give you some information on the caliber of talent that is sharing the stage with me:
Jim Wngfield-Jim ia also a talented singer and prolifiic songwriter. He is the kind of musician that can improvise and add musical color to any style of music you can think of, when you come to the concert you will experience this first hand. He along with Ed and Lee are part of the “Free Spirits” music group that plays every Sunday at the Church. There will more to information to follow. He is such a busy musician. I will sit down with him so he can fill me in with his upcoming and current music projects.
Gabriel De Los Santos- Gabriel is my younger brother, but there are times I forget. His very rich and soulful voice will engulf you in his songwriting creations and in the arrangement of Amazing Grace he will sing with me.
If you are not in the area, please let your family and friends who are in the area to help support this wonderful event.
