Solar eclipses, opportunities to choose, and trying times…

“What is the greatest thing I can do, with the skills I have,
that would have me waking up knowing that
I used my life well today, and in my life?

Jennifer Hough

While I was with my parents in Bracebridge, Ontario, having a late Thanksgiving, miracles abounded.

My sisters and I had a beautiful conversation with our parents. This time of their life is so interesting for all of us. I am constantly speaking with their higher selves to make sure my connection with them is strong, I love them so.

I appreciate that I am skilled at communicating on many plains of existence.

Later, I chatted with a woman who’s brother decided he didn’t want to be on the planet anymore. I spoke to her while taking a walk. I did a much longer walk than I’d anticipated and, guided to a cemetery, I walked by four tombstones with the word ‘STRONG’ on them. Ya, she knew that he guided me because she spoke those words, very deliberately, during the funeral.

Serendipity abounded in our long-distance walk together and it was all because he was with us.

Then, I had a conversation with my dear friend Gil, in Israel. He, his wife and two sons, live in Jerusalem. He is safe but his wife is sitting Shiva for her best friend’s brother who lived in Gaza.

As I spoke to him, I could feel his stress. I expressed my deep yearning to do what I could for him; to answer the question: “What is the greatest thing I can do, with the skills I have, that would have me waking up knowing that I used my life well today, and in my life?”

He said that it was so wonderful to hear from me, and to know there are people who care outside of his country. He wanted to make sure we put them in our “Lighting You Up” group in our Agents of Awakening community. He asked that all are included (Palestinian and Jewish Israelis alike) in the activations of our weekly gathering.

I’m have been inspired and motivated to begin talking to my dear friend about a movement to bring the world together. It’s time, my friend.

The solar eclipse is a time for choosing a new future, the next path, an evolution in spirals.

You coming?

With love,



A dear friend asked what do we do with the evil in the world…

A dear friend asked what do we do with the evil in the world…

A dear friend recently asked me what do we do with the evil in the world.

Well, first we have to define evil. I find the word ‘evil’ does not express what is going on within the people who commit the acts causing such great upset. Any combination of the following may have happened to them, leading to actions described as ‘evil’.

Disenfranchisement, loneliness, abuse, severe disempowerment, lack of faith in love and communication based on their past, poverty, and therefore vulnerability, indoctrination by others who have felt the same, trying to find a place to belong, being heard, an expression of the deep resentment and anger they have internally for all the unfairness they perceive. It is coupled, or should I say fuelled, by a sprinkling of righteousness on all sides.

A book that is so special to me…

A book that is so special to me…

The other day I was in my sauna, sweating my brains out because my body had been in pain. I was listening to the book ‘Braiding Sweetgrass’. It’s brilliant. The first time I read it, I wasn’t able to take in the full magnificence of the words within. I was in a different place.

We’ve just had our Canadian Thanksgiving, the Shadow of American Thanksgiving which follows in November.

I was listening to the story of how important nuts were to those tribes that lived on the prairies and in the forest. They would store nuts, much like wise squirrels and chipmunks do because they contain protein and good fats for the winter.

Abundance everywhere

Abundance everywhere

I mean, I know we’re made from atoms that come from the soil that also feeds the trees, and food. That same soil, combined with sun and rain also causes the abundance of beauty in nature and the very oxygen we breathe.

BUT YOU KNOW HOW sometimes you just get it more deeply in your cells?

We’re overflowing even at the level of the smallest particle of us … gosh, we come from those atoms. The atoms that were originally stardust. Sometimes it just gets me.

It wasn’t until the last seven years when I started sowing and gathering the harvest of my beautiful garden, which includes flowers, plum trees, and fig trees, that I really got how relentlessly generous, bountiful and giving nature is and, therefore, since we are part of nature, we’re meant to be so.
