I did a short interview with Bruce Hilvitz, who is a very talented cartoonist, who is in the process of getting a new comic strip syndicated and also captures your pet’s essence through his digital pet portraits. I wanted to do a follow up with more examples of his work. Here is Reggie J. Rabbit:
Bruce captured Reggie’s essence.
I really love the fine detail of this cat:

I have been having a lot of dreams about going to school lately. In the dream my Mother and Father is telling me I have to go to High School, but I argue with them that I don’t want to go because I have already gradated. They keep telling me I still have to go. I have been having these dreams off and on since last year. I finally realized that I have been struggling with the new awareness’ I have made and know intuitively that I need to move on to more lessons in being cognizant of Spiritual Law. I have been directed to reading and studying the words of Marianne Williamson who teaches from the book, A Course in Miracles. This is a book that was channeled in the mid 60’s to 1975 by Helen Schucman, Ph.D, Associate Professor of Medical Psychology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City. Helen was a very intellectual woman who didn’t believe in such nonsense as Channeling dis-embodied spirits, but this spirit was persistent and after she spoke to her colleague, William Thetford, Ph.D.,who said she was not losing her mind, started letting this spirit dictate his messages. As they were working together, the spirit revealed to her that he was Jesus Christ. You can read the history on “A Course in Miracles by going to http://acim.org/Scribing/about_scribes.html
My own take on this is that these are the teachings Jesus was trying to give to the world when he was in physical body. I was introduced to “A Course in Miracles” in the late 90’s but I was resistant to some of the messages in the book and decided not to go through the lessons. Now I know I am ready to re-visit these teachings. Marianne Williamson had been interviewed by Lisa Garr on her program, Gaiam Inspirations on Gaiam TV. Marianne was talking about her latest book called “The Law of Devine Compensation On Work, Money and Miracles. To hear Marianne talk about her book go to her website:
I downloaded her book from Audible and when I started listening from the Preface, these words spoke to me. I was resonating with them. As I have gone through the subjects like why it is important to release Anger? How you can tell if you have deactivated the Law of Compensation and how to reactive the Law? I was having memories when I activated this law and the periods of time I had it deactivated. It confirmed for me why my life was hit and miss for a 45 year period. It is a confirmation of what I have learned and filled in the missing pieces of my own Divine guidance I have been receiving in subtle signs and whispers. I look forward to my continuing education in Spiritual Laws.
To quote from A Course of Miracles,” if you are not creating miracles, then something is wrong”.
Using EFT to change messages in my subconscious gives me tremendous freedom!
That statement is not exactly true. I am always in possession of my power. Sometimes my ego blocks an aspect out of protection from an experience I had as a child. In the consulting work I do, I am always learning something new. I do work I never even conceived of 3 years ago, in a totally different field. But it has been challenging and a good exercise of feeling comfortable being out of my comfort zone. Recently other consultants started a users group to discuss any issues that come up. This is a good way to share our experiences and learn new tips to make our work easier. I was in my Bathroom, which I see more and more as my Wisdom Temple to receive knowledge. I get my best information when I am there in the shower. I was thinking about our upcoming User’s Group and I got a message that I can never question anyone who I feel is an authority figure. That was a mind altering statement. because as far back as I can remember, when I have been in a group training session in other jobs I have had. I could never think of any questions to ask even if I didn’t understand the new procedure my trainer was telling me. It was so frustrating. I wanted to ask a question that would help me but my brain seemed to freeze and I felt like the trainer was speaking in a language other than English. I never understood why. This little message I received in my Wisdom Temple explained that belief. So I used the tool of EFT to change that thought and unlock the brain freeze I get. Today I am in my User’s Group and not only was I able to ask questions but I was also able to add my own feedback to help my colleague. I received another piece to the puzzle that is freeing my spirit. Thank you Gary Craig, Nick and Jessica Ortner and my own EFT Coach, Christine Metawati for teaching me this valuable tool in EFT-Emotional Freedom Technique. I am feeling tremendous emotional Joyful Freedom!
I love the magazines who have a section of celebrity sightings. Oh boy you met Brad Pitt, is he as cute as Angelique thinks he is? You saw Chris Isaak at Ocean Beach in San Francisco? What you were standing next to Bruce Springsteen? It is really cool to meet these extraordinary people. I met John Dye the actor who played Andrew the Angel of Death in Touched by an Angel. He had a sparkly personality and fun to talk to. I met Tony La Russa when I was working at Pet Food Express in Pleasant Hill. He is a very stoic person who liked to keep to himself. But if you asked him about his animal family he would immediately light up. But one of the well-known personalities I have gotten introduced to 2 years ago is Archangel Michael and the other Archangels. I was introduced by a dear friend, Tana Newberry. Tana is a very talented film maker, but also known as the “Angel Girl” at anyone who goes to Angel Heart 4 You in Benicia. She was giving a workshop on how to get connected with Archangel Michael. She took us through some exercises to increase our awareness of him. In the first meditation, it was a guided meditation to meet him. It was interesting how everyone in the group saw him differently. Some of us saw him as a very handsome, radiant male with long blonde flowing hair with his Sword. But how he appeared to me was an angel in a long white robe wearing a fake nose and glasses with a Groucho Marx mustache holding a cigar. I asked him why he is appearing to me like this and he said “you are the one who wanted me to look like this. I will appear to each individual in a way that is comfortable.” Yes, he was in the perfect persona for me. I learn better if there is a humorous aspect. He told me that when ever I needed help from him just ask. Now that I am aware of him. When I am in a space where I feel uncomfortable with certain situations or people, I call him in and I instantly feel calm and safe. I was told by Tana that he is also an angel to call if you are having trouble with your computer or anything electronic. I always feel him around me. As I am writing this. I feel his hands on my shoulder. and a warmth down my back. He is gently supporting me. He is like a big brother to me. So back to the photo. There was a lady in Angel Heart taking Aura Photos. Before the photo was taken I asked my Angel crew to take a photo with me. This is the photo that was taken
When I took this photo today so I could show this to you, you can see Michael holding his sword. You may be able to see there is spark coming out of my right eye and a presence on my heart chakra. but I also saw some things that didn’t show up originally. if you look at the upper right hand side you can see an outline of an angel wing or a bat wing. I just got introduced to the Bat kingdom from a photo on Facebook. It was a photo of a bat holding on to a teddy bear. It was So cute. I got such a sense of love and innocence from looking at her photo. Bats are very misunderstood and I am now being called to share the lives of bats. It is all because of the photo of Lizzie who I believe is an interspecies ambassador. My next project will be on bats. So if you want to be friends with Archangel, just call on him, he’ll be there.
I have been a student of Spiritual Laws for quite a long time. I think I first started learning about manifesting when my ex-boyfriends mother gave us a book by Terry Cole-Whittaker on how to create a treasure map. I was in my early 20’s. Although I found the idea intriguing, it didn’t make much sense to me how by putting pictures on a piece of poster board would help me bring the trip to London or that new TRS Model 100 laptop (does that sound dated?). So I skimmed the pages but probably left it with my ex-boyfriend when we parted ways. Moving forward to the ’90s, I found a new interest in manifesting when I found a Science of Mind church in Vallejo in 1997. I loved the core belief of the church that says “What thoughts you create in your mind you create in your life”. I would go to Sunday Service and listen to the minister’s talk and was encouraged that as long as I kept positive thoughts I would have the perfect job, great relationship, the new car-anything I could think about. I took the classes in Affirmative Prayer or Spiritual mind Treatment. I learned different forms of Meditation to quiet my mind so I could quiet the chatter in my head that would block the thoughts of manifesting the things I wanted to bring in to my life. But even when I said my affirmations and visualized, my manifestations would be hit and miss. I would get discouraged and sometimes put the Science of Mind teachings on hold and as I would say “take a break”. And you can guess that the experiences in my life would also be hit and miss. I would have cycles of abundance and then it seemed to go in reverse. It was like having a dark night of the soul that lasted a year. Being the eternal optimist that I am, I knew that even when I was feeling like I was at the end of optimism, I still had a knowing that things would turn around, even if I didn’t know how. I could still feel my guides around me. As long as I felt that lifeline I was ok. I don’t want to go through the next few years of the trial and error so we will fast forward to now. And what I have learned.
1) If things are not materializing as fast as I like, it could be that there are still some things I am not aware of that still need to fall into place before it shows up in my life.
2) There could be some things that need to be in alignment before the things I am attracting shows up in my physical life (remember it is already created in the Universal Mind)
3) Maybe I have a dense vibration I am placing my focus on-a doubt, a fear that is blocking what is already here.
4)What is truly mine shows up at the perfect time.
I love that last tip. It keeps me in an open space of possibility, of happy anticipation. It fills me with a knowing Joy that it is on the way.
I love the word Joy. I hear the word, I visualize the word. I breathe the word into my chakras. I can alchemically change the thoughts of fear to Joy when I breathe and meditate on that word. To feel Joy is who I am. I am a spirit living inside a human body embodying and expressing Joy. When I have manifested things into my life in a short time it is because I am feeling joy about my chosen thing and I wrap the feeling of Joy around a symbol of the thing I want to attract into my life. I do this in 5 minute increments during the day and include that in my virtual group meditation. When there have things that didn’t manifest as quickly as I wanted (I of course are in to instant gratification) it is because I allowed a lower frequency vibration to enter my mind. If I felt fear around what I wanted to attract, it would slow down the process. Marianne Williamson says when we go to a space that is less than joyful-anger, fear, frustration-we are deactivating the connection from the Universal flow of energy. She is not saying it is gone forever, these less than Joyful thoughts are slowing down the process. So work on the reason why the thoughts you don’t want to embrace are here. Then surrender these thoughts and say ” I feel ____, but I am willing to change”. Once you surrender to this process, you will see the miracles we are all capable of creating. I call myself a Visionary Alchemist/Joy Guide because it is a process of changing one belief into another belief. And it is so much fun.
What ever you think in your mind you create in your physical world. I have been following that philosophy since 1997. I have taken years of Mediation classes, Science of Mind Classes. I have read the works of Emmerson, Ernest Holmes, Sonia Choquette, Louise L Hay and Esther Hicks who channels Abraham and I totally resonate these words. It is always easiest to say “yes” to this stream of consciousness, but it is in the evidence of living a human life that I put this into practice. I had an experience yesterday when I was with my friend at a Grocery Food Outlet store to buy some smelly Salmon Cat food for our Cat Oski who is having the sniffles. His sense of smell is a little off, so this is motivating him to eat while he is getting through this cold.
While we were waiting in line, watching the very long lines of other consumers waiting to pay, my friend was starting to get antsy because she had an appointment. I am looking around and noticing the line is not moving. I am seeing the shopper’s grocery baskets over flowing with the many frozen dinners, canned goods and other sundries and because I know my friend needs to drop me off home so she can get to her appointment on time I am starting to feel stress. Then I hear that the registers went down. You can imagine how the frustration is growing through everyone including me now. Then the thought came “how do I want to feel?” I closed my eyes and took a deep breath (the line wasn’t moving I knew it was safe to do). I started visualizing how peace would feel in this store right now. I immediately started feeling calm and I could feel this energy flowing through the entire store. Within minutes I hear “It’s working”. Even though I was in front of two other people with their baskets over flowing, I hear a young man say “I can help next in line” and that was me. It was an amazing feeling. We got out of the store sooner than was expected.
I once heard that when you say Affirmative Prayer it doesn’t do anything to the person you are treating for, you are using the Affirmative Prayer to change your view of the situation. when your view changes, your world changes also. This was an Alchemical moment. Changing frustration and anger to calm and peace.
