One of the myths about Soul Mates is "If I find my Soul Mate, all my relationship challenges will dissolve." If you're looking for a relationship that will solve all your problems, you're inevitably going to be disappointed. The Soul Mate relationship is not about perfection. No one is perfect.

This myth of the perfect relationship has contributed to many a person's frustration and loss of hope in relationships. Even if we have a potentially great relationship that we feel was destined to be, when we don't understand the physical, mental, and emotional components that drive us, we are like ships without rudders or airplanes without navigators. We can unwittingly
sabotage a potentially healthy and satisfying Soul Mate relationship.

If we are to achieve and maintain a living connection with our intimate partner, it is imperative that we free ourselves from wishful, unrealistic fantasies. We can take the personal blinders from our eyes and develop the
full range of our abilities, sensitivities, powers, and depths as human beings. Taking off those blinders reveals our potential and also our fears
and weaknesses. Overcoming these fears and weaknesses is hard work. It requires a strong commitment.

Like the Soul Mate relationship itself, commitment doesn't just happen. The source of commitment is courage. Without courage, we are likely to turn away from our fears. By ignoring the disappointments, the anger, and the hurt that are in our past, we allow them to dictate and destroy our relationships. We allow them to keep us from our Soul Mates.

Courage allows us to make the commitment. The commitment allows us to make conscious choices. The conscious choices allow us to overcome the problems that have sabotaged past relationships. Together, they can move us to take the step the frightening, thrilling step to seek out and attract a Soul Mate relationship.

Slender lifeline
Bracelet helps Alzheimer's sufferers get home safely By Scott Craven
The Arizona Republic
March 21, 2002 12:00:00
Sunny Johnston would have ignored the elderly man knocking at her door, a stranger insisting he wanted to chat with his old friend. The Phoenix woman would have turned her back as soon as she shooed him away, peeking out the front window to make sure of one thing: that he disappeared.  But Johnston noticed his walk, the same shuffling gait of her grandmother, who, just months before, had wandered away from her Utah care home and frozen to death. She knew the man had Alzheimer's disease. She unlocked her door and, like an old friend, caught up with him. He was one of the lucky ones. Each year in the United States, thousands of people with Alzheimer's wander from home, many becoming stranded and suffering serious or even fatal injuries.  Recognizing that such tragedies are avoidable, the Alzheimer's Association instituted the Safe Return program in which participants wear identification bracelets that can help get them home quickly. The slender bracelet around the wrist of 81-year-old Mary Benjamin is one of the best gifts her husband, Bill, ever gave himself. It identifies her as someone who is memory-impaired, listing a toll-free hotline to call if she's found wandering. Read the bracelet's ID number to the operator and Mary's name will be revealed, as well as how to contact her husband to make sure she gets back to their Phoenix home safely.  The $40 registration fee has paid for itself in terms of peace of mind, Bill Benjamin says. His wife has been a frequent wanderer, but knowing she can be identified and returned home with one phone call is a comfort.  "She's a lot faster than she looks," he says. "Her mind is gone, but she's in great physical health. I lock the front door and always keep an eye on her, but I can't turn my back on her for a second.  "In the three years Mary has worn the bracelet, it's been used once when police picked her up just a few blocks from home, returning her minutes after Bill reported her missing. Should it happen again, he can call the same Safe Return hotline, which will immediately report it to local law enforcement agencies, faxing them her description and photo. The local chapter of the Alzheimer's Association also is notified, enlisting the help of a counselor or caseworker if the reporting family needs support. Unfortunately, enrollment in Safe Return remains low because people are either unaware of the program or hesitant to admit that they or loved ones suffer from the insidious memory-robbing disease, says John Durbin, Safe Return coordinator for Arizona.  There are about 4 million people in the United States diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and seven of 10 sufferers on average are known to wander, Durbin says. As America ages, the problem will worsen because 14.5 million Alzheimer's sufferers are expected by 2050, says John Guagliardo of the national Alzheimer's Association. He says that since 1993, more than 81,000 people nationally have registered for the program and nearly 100 percent of participants who've been reported missing (nearly 7,000 people) had been safely returned. Despite the success, Durbin says, of the 85,000 Arizona residents diagnosed with the disease, just 2,600 are registered with Safe Return. The stigma of such a debilitating disease, which steals from the mind rather than the body, prevents people from seeking a proper diagnosis, Durbin says. "Many people in the early stages of Alzheimer's are in denial," he says. "To register for the program is a signal something is wrong, and they can't deal with that." Johnston is not sure Safe Return would have saved her 76-year-old grandmother who wandered away from a Park City nursing home on New Year's Eve 2000. Dressed only in a nightgown in below-zero temperatures, the elderly woman died of exposure.  The incident heightened Johnston's awareness of the problem so that when the elderly stranger knocked on her door a few months later, she soon saw that he was more than confused. She walked him around the block, hoping a family member might be looking for him. As she was approaching her front door, planning to call police, the man's wife pulled up in a truck.  The only alternative for most people trying to help a wayward Alzheimer's sufferer is to call the police. Officers likely would have taken the man to the nearest precinct and waited for someone to report him missing, Durbin says.  He says most wanderers reported to police are taken to the precinct or to the emergency room depending upon their health. "It's a scary experience," Durbin says. "They have no idea where they are or who anybody is. They don't feel safe. "That's why the Alzheimer's Association is studying ways to have wanderers taken to nearby elder-care facilities while families are being notified, says Kathleen Pagels, director of public policy for the Arizona chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. Unfortunately, care homes are prohibited from taking in people until certain medical tests are administered. "We're working on overcoming those obstacles," Pagels says. "That's why a program like Safe Return is so important. We want people to get home as quickly as possible."

For those of you that didn't know---there was an article featured in Thursdays Arizona Republic, in the living section, about Alzheimer's. I was interviewed for the story and it includes  info about my Grandmother's death. Here is the article!

By the way, the Alzheimer's association called at 9AM Thursday morning and said that they had had 5 calls before 8Am from people wanting these bracelets! We are so happy to know that people are being saved just by spreading the awareness. It's a start! Thank You Grandma!

What's This Fool Thinking About This Week

By Dannion Brinkley

Hello Everybody,

Happy Springtime!

Since Secretary Thompson's recent release of the Presidential Executive Order on Alternative and Complementary Medical Policy, I am busily at the task of writing a letter of my personal recommendations to the President of the United States. Over the past month I've been working hard at Compassion In Action organizing policies and procedural guidelines. I've also been fighting a lawsuit against organizations who feel our mission to guarantee that 'no one need die alone' interferes with their mission that a terminal patient has
the right to choose life or death (assisted suicide). I feel that we do not interfere with them at all. I believe that Compassion In Action in no way impedes their mission, they believe we do.

And by the way, if you are into cosmonology, boxes 4 and 5 from my book, Saved By The Light, are happening as you read this. Check it out! After reading it, I sincerely hope you realize that the world around it is changing...forever. With all the sabers rattling, we must open our hearts to act now, out of love, and not out of fear.

In the midst of this, I received this very special e-mail. I wanted to share it with you, and in turn I hope you will pass it on.

With love and purpose,
Dannion Brinkley

When you sense your own divinity, you feel many things, especially your true nature and the creator God.  You are a particular point of the Creator itself.  You and the Creator are one and the same.  To think that you are in any way separate is only an illusion that you agree to hold, backed up by the misinformation handed down to you by those who thought they knew life's universal truths.  What you deliberately agreed to forget at birth was the intimate knowledge that you and God are one together.

Warrior Work Week 9

Principle 9: Do nothing which is of no use.


Everything we do moves us forward toward one goal or another even if we are not conscious of it. When our thoughts, words and actions become focused like an arrow on our goals and we feel good about it in every cell in our being then our intent is pure and clear. This warrior principle challenges us to be mindful of our thoughts, words and actions and what we are becoming and creating within us and around us. Ghandi said, “ be the change you want to see in the world”.  Balance is an important part of this principle. If you work to hard and too much you break down; if you go out and have too much pleasure and fun you become soft and weak. This week, be mindful before you choose to do things of the goal that motivates you towards your choice of this or that action. “Do I go to the gym or do I go to dinner or can I do both?” which path will make you lighter mentally, emotionally and physically? Which path will make you heavier mentally, emotionally and physically? Do I go to the bar and socialize or do I stay and read, stretch or watch something that makes me feel good or educates me about something I am interested in? Choices, choices, choices…………do nothing which is of no use!




Getting Motivated

By, Carrie Shubert


          The last couple months of 2001 were about completion.  Many people were restless and anxious to complete their ongoing projects, or hurrying to ‘get where they were going.’  Now that the New Year is here, the energy seems to be sluggish. If you are feeling completely unmotivated and apathetic but have incomplete projects, I recommend a few tips to keep you on target.  Staying in action is important. 

1)    Take a walk in the morning and enjoy the scenery.  It will get your energy flowing.

2)   Think about a particular goal you are working on and picture yourself having achieved it.

3)   Think of something you can do that day to get you closer to completion.

4)  Take one action everyday toward that goal i.e. making a call, sending out a letter, or gathering information.

If you don’t have the time to make these a daily ritual, make the time to do them a few times a week. 

In January I completed a book and am planning to self-publish.  I have found myself procrastinating.  I have to design my cover and get pricing to print my book.  Whatever the blocks, if I practice the tips stated above, I will have a published book in no time.

          Motivation is something that comes from the inside.  Create self- excitement rather than waiting to feel in the mood.

Hidden Miracles
by Mary Ellen "Angel Scribe" in Oregon

Last Sunday was Easter Sunday, a perfect day for a miracle.

This miracle is amazing, because it demonstrates that when we are patient and wait -- somehow God/ The Angels will find a way to speak to us and it is usually heralded in on Divine Timing.

Nearly a quarter of a century ago we bought a bedside table from a friend in Canada.

In the following years we moved it four times with us.

Last week, at a garage sale, I bought a new end table.

On Easter Sunday my hubby transferred the contents from his old bedside stand to the garage-sale end table.

When he lifted the old bed stand the drawer mysteriously slid out.

I saw a startled look in his eyes, and was puzzled myself as the stand was not tilted enough to slide the drawer out.

It appeared that someone pulled it out!

When the drawer fell completely out my hubby reached into the empty cavity, and found a faded green newsletter "hiding" unbeknownst to us and the previous owners.

This was on Easter Sunday.

I gasped!!!

Not much of a miracle you may say, but let me tell you what the newsletter said;

The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church April 1979

What a God-got-cha moment!

It is hard to express the wonder of this small and powerful experience.

If I had not bought the garage sale table, and we had not moved the old one on Easter Sunday, then this story would not have the power to convince us....MIRACLES HAPPEN.

Jenna Catherine

author of Conversing With the Future . . .Visions of the Year 2020

takes a look at the future.  Based on her time travel forward, to that year, she reports some pretty way out stuff.

Is it just in her head, or will it be true for you too?


Future Idea #2  -- IN THE FUTURE WE WILL BE TELEPATHIC.  This does not mean that verbal communication will disappear, just that we will develop the ability to use our physical bodies more to detect truth, which includes the subtle energy around and within us.  The way we know truth now is to memorize truths, then look for evidence of what we already believe.  Telepathy brings us more into the moment and helps us connect to higher dimensions, focusing us more on love and God.

            Interestingly, I ‘ve read two articles about autistic children who are telepathic.  In one case when the autistic child, Adrian Rocha, first started speaking – and she does and can now – she spoke about spirituality.  As she became more verbal, she shared an incredible awareness (future idea #1), including past lives, connections with spirit guides, and insight into the meaning of life, “Love is the only truly important reason for our life to exist,” her mother reports (Kristi Jorde, author of A Child of Eternity).  She even told her mother that she was real clear that autism was a way of teaching and that she had chosen it.  These are the kinds of awarenesses all of us are in the process of developing now.

What I have noticed, is that what I have seen later in 2020 -- a whole lot of telepathy -- of course is beginning now.  But I wouldn’t know “now” if I hadn’t seen “later.”  That is why knowing the future is so important.  It changes how we interpret the now.  Believe me, the next be area for research will be interpretation.  Anyway, after seeing so much telepathy in the future, I decided to write a guide to telepathy, now in my book.  Maybe you’ll see your own roots for being telepathic now.  Perhaps you’ll recognize that the voices in your head are not yours.  Perhaps you’ll look at your own world entirely differently.  Perception is at the heart of all change.

Wish You Might

Remember when you were young and when you saw the first star of the evening you would say, "I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight."  With childlike assurance, you KNEW your wish would come true.  After all, you had wished upon a star.

The Angels Speak
Nothing much has changed from your childhood days of wishing.  Today we want you to remember the faith of those wishes and to put to use the power of a wish in the NOW!

A wish is a way of ASKING for what you need or desire to have happen in your life.  A child wishes. An adult asks or supplicates or prays.  But for this writing, we ask you that you go back to a childlike wonder of wishing. Remember the power behind your wish?  Remember the clarity you had as you said those magical words?  Remember the conviction with which you spoke?  Remember the magic of the moment as day softly turned to night?  You have just manifested a wonderful memory of your childhood into your present. You have accessed the Power of Wishing.

· INTENT - When you have a desire or need, state it clearly. Be certain of what you are asking for.  Yes, be specific.
· CLARITY - Be as clear as you possibly can at the moment of your wishing.  Use every one of you senses to enhance the reality of your wish.  Use your eyes to see it.  Use your touch, taste, and smell to feel its genuineness. Use your inner vision to feel it coming to you as a truth.  Literally breath in its presence in your life.
· CONVICTION - Know, know, know that your wish has come true.  Not in the future, but NOW.  The moment your wish is made, all the power of the universe has focused on it and has gone to work on bringing it to you.  Do not doubt.  Do not fear.  Be certain it is happening.
· POWER - When you ask with the power of your entire being and trust, you have gained access to the Law of Manifestation.  You have begun to use one of the Laws of the Universe and it cannot be denied you. Give it power by believing it.

Right now, stop and Make a Wish.  If you like, say the magic words of childhood, "I wish I may, I wish I might…… State your wish with intent, clarity, conviction, and power.  Believe in your wish with all your might.

Now access the Law of Letting Go.  Forget it.  Let it Happen.  Don't worry, fret or doubt.  Be at peace with your wish.  Let us handle it.  It is done. Your wish has been sent. Let us deliver it to God.

Then, you say, why doesn't it always work?
1. You cannot make a wish for other people.  You don't know what is good for them.  You can, however, wish for good things and help to come to them.
2. You cannot receive anything that will bring harm.  You don't always know what that is. God does.
3. You cannot be aligned with evil when you have asked for divine beings to go to work for you.
4. You cannot be taken away from your life purpose.

Ninety-nine per cent of what one wishes for will be help for daily tasks, some sort of abundance, for peace of mind, or for love or health.  All of these are fair to manifest or wish for.  All of these are the type of things that we can help you with.  These are perfect examples of what you are able to have intent, clarity, conviction, and power about.  These are the things we can help you with.

When you wish or manifest, it is as though you are the lamp and we are the power source.  When you plug into our power in the correct way with the correct parts in place, your light will shine purely and truly and clearly. 
Any deviation from this Law of Lighting Lamps and it will not happen.  The power happens when all of it comes together.  You never doubt The Law of Lighting Lamps because you have used it thousands and thousands of times.  If the light fails, you know that one of the parts has not activated.  It is the same with wishing.

Wishing/Asking always works when the parts are in place.  Do not doubt this because that is an impediment to the Law of Manifestation.  Just do it.  Then do it again.  Over, and over, and over.  Wish as many times as there are stars in heaven.  Wish on the second, third and forth stars which shine at night.  Who says the first star is the only one with the Power of Wishing behind it?  Certainly not us.

Faith Builder.  Make a wish with intent, clarity, conviction, and power.  Then forget it.
Trudy and Barbara are sisters. Both were awakened by their angels and have since been teaching people all over the world how to work with their own angels. They are authors of three best selling "Angelspeake" books. Ordering information for copies of their latest book, "Heaven and Beyond," is available on their website,

Notes and Thoughts By W. G. Black Ph.D. - Founder and Director of Gakati'yi


"May the Wind Always Be to Your Back, Cathy Black"

     Overwhelming feelings of love flow as I write 'Notes & Thoughts' for the powerful month of April.  My last writing celebrated my daughter's 42nd birthday, and that was a very rewarding experience.  Very soon she informed me that she and Keith Spear of Santa Cruz, California, had decided to "move up their wedding date" to March 30th.  It's Friday, the 29th, as I write this one, so I'm filled with positive, great anticipations and a plethora of thoughts and feelings. Keith and Cathy will have expressed their feelings for Self and Other and their agreements by the time this article is available for sharing.  Being with them and being in their presence stimulates experiences of love, peace, joy and happiness.  Their basic agreement seems to be that of sharing the process of growth, to grow together rather than, as some do, finding enlightenment by living in a cave for many years.  So far as I know both paths are of equal value and lead to the same 'destination.'  I've just experienced the great honor of being in the presence of Bordor Tukul Rinpoche of Woodstock, New York.  I requested a blessing of him for Keith and Cathy, and he graciously and lovingly granted it.   A Course in Miracles does say, "No one is healed alone."  Also, "Relationships are the healing temple of the Holy Spirit." 

     Regular readers of this column know of my love for Gestalt therapy which began in 1968 in San Francisco, by the way, right where Keith and Cathy expressed their commitments.  I met Dr. Jim Simkin and Ann Simkin in Austin in 1970.  I have remembered vividly one of Jim's truisms about marriage from Gestalt therapy.  "Most marriages start with two strikes against them.  The wedding music often includes "Oh, Promise Me," and, "Because."  Baba Ram Dass published Be Here Now during that same time period.  The ego is forever attempting to diminish or even destroy love in the Great Now by generating, perpetuating and escalating fears based on the past or projecting a negative future.  Fritz Perls mastered the art of working with what he called "catastrophic expectations."  I've never known whether he created the idea or acquired it from someone else.  In very oversimplified form this translates as "Terrible things have happened in the past.  Worse things are probably going to happen in the future.  Therefore, take no risks, make no changes, withhold all positives, especially love, and everyone will be safe and not ever get hurt again."  To quote A Course in Miracles again, "The ego is insane," and, "This is an insane world."   As we all know so well by now, the method of catastrophic expectations is being used "en masse" to manipulate and control us now.  The Oklahoma City bombing and the 9/11 Tower demolishing are held before us constantly as the rationale for giving up our personal freedoms and autonomies.  One remedy for all of this is always available.  We can ask, "What are the positive REALities which are present right now in THIS Great Now?"  What we focus on expands.  Expand not catastrophic expectations by focusing upon them. 

     Keith and Cathy are leading us and guiding us in this positive direction.  They have overcome all the negative histories of relationships.  They are taking the risks involved in Being Here Now.  No past hurts had the power to squelch the expression of their truth and love.  Being present in each new "now" is enough for them.  No promises of unrealistic, idealistic, egotistical loyalty are required.  They have done their "homework" within Self, and now they can create a "home" where the dear and the beloved play. 

     The month of March always takes us through St. Patrick's Day and lots of Irish energy.  For some reason I've loved the Irish blessing which serves to close this blessing for Keith and Cathy's relationship and infinite happiness.  "May the wind always be to your back, Cathy Black.  May no hurt ever be greater than the healing powers which will mend it.  May all potential joy be realized, actualized and expressed.  May no harm ever befall you and yours.  May the wind always be to your back, Keith Spear and Cathy Black." 

     I love you beyond all possible verbal ways to express it.  May your relationship always teach that love is stronger, greater and more enduring than illusion and fear.

Natural Dentistry




            The current way to stop tooth decay is by removal of the decayed area and “filling” it with different materials. The common way to fill teeth over the last fifty years has been to use a “silver amalgam” fillings. Almost 50 percent of the amalgam contains the highly toxic heavy metal, mercury. Mercury has been found in brain slices of Alzheimer patients, as well as in patients with mental illnesses. A better and more modern choice for fillings is ceramic, which may not produce the toxic effects of heavy metal poisoning.


Commercial Toothpaste and Mouthwashes

            Most commercial toothpastes contain fluoride, a derivative of the deadly chemical, fluorine. A recent government study of 156 cancer deaths over three years indicated that fluoride accumulates in the body and may eventually cause cancer and other illnesses. To prevent this, I recommend the natural toothpaste and mouthwash by The Natural Dentist, listed below.


Inflamed Bleeding Gums

          Bleeding gums are often caused by a bacterial infection. In order to stop this condition, take 3000-6000 mg. Vitamin C per day for one week or longer, depending on the severity of the condition. Also take internally 100 mg./day of CoQ10. Combine this internal regime with a product called Tooth and Gum Therapy Mouthwash by The Natural Dentist. Also use Tooth and Gum Therapy Toothpaste by The Natural Dentist. This toothpaste and mouthwash contain goldenseal, which kills infection and stops bleeding, as well as echinacea, which boosts the immune system. I have seen many cases of periodontal surgery postponed or eliminated by using this combination. Use Stim-u-dent wooden toothpicks to massage between the gums after meals to prevent gum disease.


Toothache Pain

          The essential oil Clove Oil can be rubbed on toothache pain for immediate relief.


Temporomandibular Joint Pain (TMJ Syndrome)


          Approximately 10 million American adults suffer from a condition called temporomandibular joint syndrome.  In this condition, pain is felt on either side of the jaw, where the temporal bone joins the jawbone or mandible. This painful affliction causes pain in the muscles and jaw that sometimes radiates to the face and neck. There may be cramping or difficulty opening the mouth all the way or clicking and grinding may occur during movement of the joint.

            Underlying causes are stress, grinding of teeth, and poor posture…sometimes caused by cradling the telephone with the shoulder. The following nutritional supplements may be taken to aid the condition: 2000 mg. of calcium and 1500 mg. magnesium taken in divided doses throughout the day to produce a calming effect and sooth muscular tension. Also 100 mg. Of  B complex vitamins 3x/day to relieve stress.

            A dental assistant recently complained of having to order a costly dental appliance to stop her TMJ. Instead, she rubbed the flower essence Pine on the sore spot in front of her left ear 1x/hr for 6 hours. By the end of the evening, her pain was completely gone. The flower essence Holly likewise will remedy the pain if rubbed topically in front of the right ear.


Before Dental Procedures

          If stress or anxiety accompanies dental procedures, the Bach flower essence combination Rescue Remedy is recommended. 10 drops under the tongue will calm down an anxious patient if the anxiety is mild. Alternatively, Rescue Remedy Crème

can be rubbed into the wrists of stress-ridden patients to calm them down before a procedure and can be very effective with children undergoing adjustment of braces.

For more anxious patients, Kava Kava Root extract can be taken to calm mild to moderate anxiety.


Health, Peace, Love and Light,

     Forward this newsletter to two friends or colleagues you think will benefit from this information. They'll appreciate it and so will I. If you received this free newsletter by mistake, we apologize. Please unsubscribe below. Happy Spring Friends!

    We grow up experiencing that power is authority over others, not mastery over ourselves. But in adulthood we come to know that authentic power is not for controlling others. Real power is the ability to choose our thoughts and feelings and thereby change our situations, relationships, life or the world. Rosa Parks refused to sit in the back of the bus and changed the lives of many for the better because she changed her thinking. We can never control what others think and do, but we can always control our reaction to it.


    The Power of Spiritual Thoughts
    Real power is the awareness that no person or situation has power over our lives. We have everything we need right now to be a powerful man or woman of God. The kind of power that leads people to control and manipulate and force their will onto others stems from fear, not personal or spiritual power.

    Most of our battles are won or lost in our mind. Thinking positively versus negatively changes our perspective, personality, and priorities. Ralph Waldo Emerson said: "Do you want to be a power in this world? Then be yourself." Power lies in our identity. Being yourself means you identify with the truth that you are a beautiful man or woman of God in whom He is well pleased. We give our power away when we allow people or situations to validate us. Once we know we are perfect just the way we are at this very moment, no situation or person in the outer world can validate us or have power over us.

    Some of us fear that if we claim our power, we will lose our relationships. We are afraid if we move on and leave others behind, we will be left alone in a state of hopelessness. The truth is, when we deny our power because we are afraid to move beyond the crowd, we are not living up to our potential. We are, in fact, living a lie. Rather, it is our responsibility to lead by example and move beyond the crowd, if necessary, helping the crowd do greater things. That was the commitment Jesus made and lived daily. That is our work, too!


    Let Go of the World To Receive God's Power
     We give our power away when we live in the past or when we play the role of the victim. Nine chances out of ten, if we feel powerless, it is because we have shifted our thoughts away from the present moment. Right now is the only place we find power. If our thoughts drift into the past or future, pull in the reins and come back to the now. That is our power! When we feel powerless, we can say the following affirmations: I give no one the power to make my life miserable; Nothing in this world can make my life complete because I am already complete; I am one with Infinite Power. Read A Maze of Grace for more powerful affirmations.

    I have found that power does not lie in manipulation but in cooperation and gentle confrontation when necessary. If you are being abused or bullied, you may need to remove yourself from a situation to regain your power. Life is not always fair. But God is! In closing, Marianne Williamson wrote recently in her daily inspirational email: "God's power is the power to reverse all physical laws. By ourselves, of course, we are without this power. Through His power within us, we are workers of miracles and the seedlings of a transformed humanity." Have a powerful month with God's guidance!


    Seeking Spiritual Dreams That Changed Lives!
    For the past year I have been gathering information for a book I'm writing: Spoken In Dreams: Divine Dreams That Changed Lives. I am still in need of powerful, nocturnal dreams that made you take new action in waking life. One that had the power to transform your waking life into a greater life. And one that represents one of the twelve powers.

    After much consideration, I have decided to link these spiritual dreams with the Twelve Powers: Faith, Imagination, Joy, Letting Go, Life, Love, Order, Power, Strength, Understanding, Wisdom or Will. The mission of this writing is to share how a dream led you to develop one of the powers either in your life or someone else's life. I will be using the dreams already sent to me, but I am in need of even more dreams that characterize the powers.

    Please email me with your dreams. If you are not sure which power is the focus of your dream, I will help you with that. I look forward to hearing about a spiritual dream that was life-changing for you. Thank you.


    A message from

     The voice of God



    If thou wilt diligently harken to the voice of the LORD thy GOD, and wilt do that which is right in HIS sight, and wilt give ear to HIS commandments, and keep all HIS statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.” (Ex. 15:26)

     As an integral member of LightStream Productions, which promotes Health and Spirituality, it is in my view imperative that we understand the relationship and importance of health and temperance in our lives.

    According to our reference text, Exodus 15:26, GOD HIMSELF tells us that if we listen to HIS VOICE, do what is right in HIS sight, give ear to HIS commandments, and keep all of HIS statutes, HE will not allow any diseases to come upon us, “For I am the LORD that healeth thee.”

    Paul further explains in 1 Corinthians 6:20 that the health of our body should be preserved, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify GOD in your body, and in your Spirit, which are GOD’S.” Prior to that he says, in verse 19, “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the HOLY SPIRIT which is in you, which ye have of GOD, and ye are not your own?”

    “If any man defile the temple of GOD, him shall GOD destroy; for the temple of GOD is HOLY, which temple ye are.” (1 Corinthians 3:17) Therefore, temperance is proper and in order if we are to maintain good health in our body, or the temple. Temperance I might note, means habitual moderation and control in the indulgence of the appetites and passions; or in other words, self control. “Temperance puts wood on the fire, meal in the barrel, flour in the tub, money in the purse, credit in the country, contentment in the house, clothes on the back, and vigor in the body," according to Benjamin Franklin.

    The Apostle Peter, in 1 Peter 1:5-7, says, “Add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.” Note that, temperance is rightly placed here as to order. Knowledge is a prerequisite to temperance, and temperance to patience. It is very difficult for an intemperate person to be patient. Paul further tells us in Ephesians 5:18. “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the spirit.” The danger in the indulgence of stimulating foods and drinks is that they create an unnatural appetite and thirst, thus leading to excess. Both food and drink should be nourishing and non-stimulating.

     All intoxicating drinks are deceptive. They seem to give strength, but in reality cause weakness; they seem to create heat, but in fact lower the general temperature; they seem to impart vitality, but really destroy life; they seem to promote happiness, but cause the greatest unhappiness and misery. To intemperance may be attributed much of the world’s sorrow.

    Alcohol tends to destroy the higher forms of cells, those directly concerned with the vital processes, particularly the delicate brain-cells, and to replace them with useless and harmful connective tissue, or what is commonly known as scar tissue. Reliable statistics demonstrate that the total abstainer has an advantage of at least twenty-one per cent over the moderate drinker.

     Tobacco using is demoralizing in its general effects, and tends to create an appetite for strong drink. It originated with the natives of North America, the Indians. In November, 1492, when Columbus discovered the island of Cuba, he sent two sailors to explore it, who, when they returned, reported, among many other strange and curious discoveries, that the natives carried with them lighted firebrands, and puffed smoke from their mouths and noses, which they supposed to be the way the savages had of perfuming themselves. They afterward declared that they “saw the naked savages twist large leaves together, and smoke like devils.” Originating with the wild barbarians of America, the smoking habit, after some years, was introduced into Europe, and was rapidly adopted, not only by the lower classes, but by those in high authority, even princes and nobles participating in the new intoxication. It has since become well-nigh universal.    

    “Tobacco slows up reflexes, lowers morale; any advertisement that says smoking helps an athlete is a falsehood and a fraud.”—Knute Rockne.

    “Cigarette smoking stupefies the brain, saps vitality, undermines health, and weakens moral fiber. No one who hopes to be successful in any line can afford to contract so detrimental a habit.”—Ty Cobb

     Intemperance often begins in the home. Many who would not think of placing on their tables wine or liquor of any kind will load them with food that creates a thirst for strong drink, ---with strong tea and coffee, injurious condiments, rich pastry, highly seasoned foods, and the like.

     “I beseech you…that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable unto GOD.” (Romans 12:1).

    “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, DO ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD.” (1 Corinthians 10:31).



    Universally Yours,
